“America sees itself as a ruler of the world’s oceans. After all, the country — which spends 10 times more on its military forces than the following nine countries — has by far the biggest naval force. And as since the Vietnam War they have dealt only with militarily inferior opponents, they are extremely self-confident in their belief that they can defeat everything and everyone. It is not surprising that some young Americans even wear T-shirts with the logo: “United States Navy: The Sea is Ours.”
Perhaps we need to meet this pride and arrogance with some understanding in view of the numerical superiority of the U.S. Navy. In total, it currently has 10 operational aircraft carriers (two in reserve), while Russia and China have only one each.
Aircraft carriers are the great pride of the U.S. Navy and are also perfect to underline visually the claim of the ruler of the seas. They are therefore well liked by U.S. presidents as stages for delivering speeches when the time comes to tell the people that this unique nation has once again won a heroic victory.
What thrilling moments these were (at least for Americans) when George W. Bush landed in a fighter jet on the USS Abraham Lincoln (no, not as a pilot) and then, with the words “mission accomplished” and “a job well done,” proclaimed the end of the Iraq war to the people. As we know, the destruction of Iraq was carried out by the Americans under the label of Operation Iraqi Freedom. We may still ask ourselves what it had to do with freedom, but that’s a different story....”
I'm certainly not a military expert of any kind. In the late 1950's I was a lowly aircraft controller, assisting officers with air to air intercepts during one of those rare moments when America was not bombing the hell out of the world, based on the non-stop lies that kept pouring out of the Pentagon, after my tour of duty ended in1963, just before Kennedy was murdered.
But I submit that it doesn't take a genius to figure out that if America is reluctant to commit it's heaviest military weapons to the current battle zones of the world, there must be more reasons than just budget considerations at issue.
The deployment of Onyx and Sunburn missiles by Iran in the Persian Gulf, might have had something to do with ending the gathering of US warships in the Gulf of late. Just as the debut of Russian Air Power in the region surrounding Syria has cast the almost five year long war into doubt as well: Especially given the superb performance of Russian ICBM's and their deadly accuracy in hitting targets thousands of miles away? Here's a report that's roughly ten years old:
Kirwan: Joe, the author of the link, was US Naval Intelligence, and he was one of our best sources in this war for the truth: He was poisoned at home and paid with his life to get information about the realities to the US public - and while it's been years since he died, we need to listen to what he uncovered for the public to know, both then and now.
The American public has been lied to thousands of times, just since 911 which is a crime when government lies to those they send out to be slaughtered for private and corporate profit which they wrap in the backward Amerikan Flag. The leadership should be lynched...
Consequently, it would appear that the Pentagon and the Department of the Navy just might be reviewing how 'America' will proceed given the real-time current threat to our supposedly unbeatable military forces in the current clash over protecting Syria and now possibly Iran and Iraq as well: From America and Israeli warmongers?
It's way past time that the totally corrupted Pentagon and the failed USSA government began to level with the public because 'Amerika' is not half the global-bully that they are presenting “us” as.
In fact to send troops in based on the kinds of massively incorrect military capabilities could constitute a kind of war crime in itself, because the US military is nothing like as “powerful” as the US puppets are telling the troops they are.
Maybe this could be seen as yet another reason for the military to take over this government to finally put an end to all these global lies in the United States once and for all?
