Hillary Clinton reafirma compromisso dos EUA para continuar criando conflitos em África e no Oriente Médio

POR LUIS MIRANDA | THE REAL AGENDA | JANEIRO 26, 2013

Enquanto os grandes conflitos no Oriente Médio começam a diminuir, os Estados Unidos estão preparados para apoiar as guerras e conflitos em outras regiões do mundo. Na verdade, a história mostra que o intervencionismo dos EUA tem sido uma série de tentativas de desestabilizar governos através da ativação de grupos terroristas que fazem o trabalho sujo em nome de Washington.

Se as palavras de Hillary Clinton realmente refletem o que está por vir nos próximos meses e anos, o mundo vai ver uma continuação da atual política exterior dos EUA, a qual consiste de ataques militares, assim como guerra econômica e financeira.

Em sua última aparição como Secretária de Estado, Hillary Clinton advertiu ao Congresso nesta quarta-feira que os Estados Unidos vão ter que lutar contra a Al-Qaeda no norte da África e lidar com a instabilidade e a insegurança causada pelas revoluções em vários países árabes, que o mesmo EUA ajudou a organizar. Na opinião de Clinton, o governo dos EUA será forçado a participar diretamente na prevenção da propagação do terrorismo na região. Clinton se esqueceu de dizer que a maioria, se não todos os atos de terrorismo são realizadas tanto por forças especiais dos EUA e membros da comunidade de inteligência como por grupos terroristas armados e financiados pelo governo de Washington.

“O ataque terrorista em Benghazi ocorrido em 11 de setembro de 2012, que matou quatro americanos valentes é parte de um amplo desafio estratégico para os Estados Unidos e nossos aliados no norte da África”, disse Clinton à Comissão dos Exteriores do Senado que investigar os fatos. Nenhum membro da Comissão pediu explicações para Clinton sobre o papel das forças especiais norte-americanas ou de outros grupos no conflito, nem porquê as forças dos EUA foram obrigadas a retirar-se, mesmo estando perto para ter intervindo durante o ataque ao escritório consular dos EUA em Benghazi, na Líbia.

Clinton assumiu a responsabilidade pessoal por quaisquer erros que possam ter sido cometidos e que, inevitavelmente, facilitaram a morte de norte-americanos na Líbia, mas disse que não foi um evento isolado, atribuível à falta de medidas de segurança no consulado em Benghazi, mas a uma ampla ofensiva contra a qual os EUA está obrigado a responder com urgência. “O que significa,” ela disse, “é que devemos redobrar os nossos esforços para combater o terrorismo e para encontrar formas de apoiar a democracia nascente no Norte da África e em outros lugares.”

“Nós enfrentamos”, lembrou, “a um ambiente ameaçador que muda rapidamente, e temos que trabalhar para aumentar a pressão sobre a Al-Qaeda no Magreb Islâmico e outros grupos terroristas na região. Nós quase acabamos com Al-Qaeda no Afeganistão e Paquistão, mas seus membros se dispersaram para outros países “, acrescentou. Conforme relatado pela mídia, grupos terroristas filiados à Al Qaeda na Líbia e na Síria foram patrocinados pelos EUA como parte de um movimento terrorista internacional que trabalhou com grupos de oposição para derrubar Kadafi e agora estão trabalhando para destronar Bashar al-Assad.

A Secretária de Estado referiu-se, em particular a Mali “, onde a instabilidade”, disse ela, “criou um santuário para terroristas, que têm por objectivo alargar a sua influência e preparar novos ataques como o que vimos na semana passada na Argélia” .

Clinton não se referiu à operação militar francesa no país, mas disse que “é importante que os EUA mantenham a sua liderança no Oriente Médio, Norte da África e no resto do mundo. Atingimos muitos objetivos nos últimos quatro anos e não podemos sair agora “, disse ela, reafirmando o compromisso dos EUA para ocupar algumas das regiões mais voláteis do mundo, onde, de acordo com a BBC, a França e outros aliados voltaram para recuperar o que era uma vez parte de suas colônias.

EUA começou a ajudar a França através de transporte aéreo de tropas francesas e equipamento militar.

Clinton disse que a diplomacia dos EUA está operando furiosamente na área – o que significa que há infiltração militar – o que sugere que outras medidas mais fortes serão tomadas nos próximos meses. “Quando os EUA está ausente “, disse Clinton,” o extremismo se enraíza, e nossos interesses de segurança no país estão ameaçados. ”

A Secretária de Estado admitiu que os movimentos revolucionários ocorridos nos últimos dois anos no mundo árabe “têm uma dinâmica complicada e que eles ajudaram a destruir as forças de segurança na região, o que estabeleceu as bases para a propagação do terrorismo. Ela disse que “muitas das armas usadas por terroristas na Argélia e Mali vêm da Líbia, onde as autoridades atuais são incapazes de controlar todos os grupos armados que surgiram durante a revolta contra Muammar Gaddafi.” Na verdade, as armas poderosas das que Clinton fala foram fornecidas por EUA, e estes mesmos grupos terroristas as usaram para realizar ataques contra civis inocentes na Líbia.

Apenas os senadores John McCain e Rand Paul mostraram o seu desagrado sobre as desculpas dadas por Clinton. O senador Paul disse a Clinton que dada a sua falta de liderança, ele a teria demitido de seu cargo no Departamento de Estado. No entanto, Paul e os outros membros da Comissão dos Assuntos Externos falharam miseravelmente porque não fizeram perguntas pertinentes sobre o que realmente aconteceu em Benghazi.

O democrata John Kerry irá substituir Clinton no Departamento de Estado, uma vez que seja confirmado pelo Congresso.

Hillary Clinton reaffirms U.S. commitment to continue stirring conflicts in Africa and the Middle East

By LUIS MIRANDA | THE REAL AGENDA | JANUARY 24, 2013

As major conflicts in the Middle East wane down, the United States prepares itself to ramp up wars and conflict in other regions of the world. In fact, history shows that U.S. interventionism has been a potpourri of attempts to destabilize governments by activating proxy terrorist groups that do the dirty work on behalf of Washington.

If Hillary Clinton’s words were to mirror what is coming in the next few months and years, the world will see a continuation of the current foreign policy, which in addition to military attacks, is also composed by financial and economic warfare.

In her latest relevant appearance as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton warned Congress on Wednesday that the United States will have to fight Al Qaeda in North Africa and the instability and insecurity caused by revolutions in several Arab countries, which the U.S. itself helped instigate. In her opinion, the U.S. government will be forced to become directly involved in preventing the spread of terrorism in the region. Clinton forgot to say that most if not all acts of terrorism are either carried out by U.S. special forces and members of the intelligence community or executed by terrorist groups armed and financed by the United States government.

“The terrorist attacks in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, which killed four brave Americans, are part of a broader strategic challenge for the United States and our allies in North Africa,” Clinton told the Foreign Affairs Committee Senate investigating those events. No one in the Committee questioned Clinton about the role of U.S. special forces or other groups in the conflict and neither did any congressman asked about why U.S. forces were ordered to stand down, even though  they were close enough to intervene during the attack on the U.S. office in Benghazi.

Clinton has taken personal responsibility for any errors that may have been made to prevent the death of Americans in Libya, but said it is not a single event, attributable to the lack of security measures at the consulate in Benghazi, but a broader offensive to which the U.S. is obliged to respond with urgency. “Which means,” she said, “to intensify our efforts to combat terrorism and to find ways to support the emerging democracy in North Africa and elsewhere.”

“We face,” she recalled, “a menacing environment rapidly changing, and we must work to increase the pressure on al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and other terrorist groups in the region. We’ve decimated al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan, but its members have dispersed to other countries,” she added. As it has been reported by the media, U.S. sponsored al Qaeda-affiliated groups arrived in Libya and Syria as part of an international contingent of terrorists who worked with government opposition groups to bring down Gaddafi and who are now working to dethrone Bashar al-Assad.

The Secretary of State has referred particularly to Mali, “where instability,” she said, “has created a large sanctuary for terrorists, seeking to extend their influence and prepare new attacks like the one we saw last week in Algeria.”

Clinton did not refer to the current French military operation in that country, but said that “it is important that the U.S. maintain its leadership in the Middle East, North Africa and the rest of the world. We have come far in the past four years and we can not leave now,” she said, reaffirming the American commitment to occupy some of the most volatile regions in the world, where, according to the BBC, France and other allies have returned to reconquer what once was part of their colonies.

U.S. has begun helping France by providing air transport of French troops and military equipment.

Clinton said that American diplomacy is in full operation in the area — that means military infiltration — which suggests that other stronger measures will be taken in the coming months. “When the U.S. is absent,” she said, “there are consequences: extremism takes root, and our security interests at home are threatened.”

The Secretary of State has admitted that revolutionary movements occurred in the last two years in the Arab world “have complicated power dynamics and have destroyed the security forces in the region”, which provides the ground for the spread of terrorism. She stated that “many of the weapons used by terrorists in Argelia and Mali come from Libya”, where the current authorities are powerless to control all armed groups that emerged during the revolt against Muammar Gaddafi. In reality, powerful weapons were provided by the U.S. to those same terrorist groups to carry out attacks on innocent civilians in Libya.

Only John McCain and Rand Paul showed a bit more dissatisfaction about Clinton’s excuses. Congressman Paul told Clinton that given her lack of leadership he would have dismissed her from her position at the State Department. However, Paul and the other members of the  Foreign Affairs Committee failed miserably to ask real questions about what really happened in Benghazi.

Democrat John Kerry will be Clinton’s substitute at the State Department once he is confirmed in Congress.

Rand Paul: Environmental Extremists Run Government

by Sam Rolley
Personal Liberty
November 14, 2011

Republican Senator Rand Paul

Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said that President Barack Obama’s Administration has allowed environmental extremists to take over political decisions and kill jobs.

The Senator’s statements were made in regard to legislation he has proposed to roll back an Environmental Protection Agency regulation that penalizes States for allowing air pollution to drift into bordering States, according to The Hill.

Paul also questioned the American Lung Association’s suggestion that pollution is behind a rise in asthma and said the $5 million in funding it takes from the EPA each year might be influencing the results of its studies.

The Senator also said that the push for electric cars did not make much sense from an environmental standpoint because 50 percent of electricity in the U.S. is coal-produced.

“[I] am afraid what has happened is we have opened up the White House and this administration to environmental extremists, the kind of people who say, ‘Well the polar bears are drowning,’” he said.

Paul said that this is not the kind of extremism that he wants to see driving policy in the United States.

End the FED: Take Two… The Strength of Two Pauls

The globalist elite will have to deal with two Pauls; one in the House of Representatives and one in the Senate.

Reuters

Republican Representative Ron Paul on Thursday said he will push to examine the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy decisions if he takes control of the congressional subcommittee that oversees the central bank as expected in January.

“I think they’re way too independent. They just shouldn’t have this power,” Paul, a longtime Fed critic, said in an interview with Reuters. “Up until recently it has been modest but now it’s totally out of control.”

Paul is currently the top Republican on the House of Representatives subcommittee that oversees domestic monetary policy, and is likely to head the panel when Republicans take control of the chamber in January.

That could create a giant headache for the Fed, which earlier this year fended off an effort headed by Paul to open up its internal deliberations on interest rates and monetary easing to congressional scrutiny.

Paul, who has written a book called “End the Fed,” has been a fierce critic of the central bank’s efforts to boost the economy through monetary policy.

“It’s an outrage, what is happening, and the Congress more or less has not said much about it,” he said.

Paul said his subcommittee would also push to examine the country’s gold reserves and highlight the views of economists who believe that economic downturns are caused by bad monetary policy, not the vagaries of the free market.

Global organizations like the International Monetary Fund also will come under scrutiny, he said.

“Eventually we’re going to have monetary reform. I do not believe the dollar can be the reserve standard of the world,” said Paul, who has called for returning the United States to a currency backed by gold or silver.

Many economists say that the Fed’s decisive actions during the 2008 financial crisis prevented the deep recession that followed from turning into a depression. But grassroots outrage over the bank bailouts and other Fed actions helped propel many Republican candidates to victory in Tuesday’s congressional elections — including Paul’s son, Rand Paul, who will represent Kentucky in the Senate.

“With a lot of new members coming and the problems getting worse rather better, there’s going to be a lot more people who are going to be looking for answers,” Paul said.

MSNBC Attack Dogs on the Hunt for Rand Paul After Speech

By Luis R. Miranda
The Real Agenda
November 3, 2010

Once again, truth has defeated fraud, lies and disinformation.  Rand Paul, the son of House Representative Ron Paul of Texas, defeated Jack Conway with a commanding lead Tuesday.  It did not take hours or days, however, for MSNBC to try to tackle Paul with personal attacks and baseless, empty questioning.  The flag of dissatisfaction carried by Paul during this mid-term elections is unequivocally the best example of why one man, with the support of real patriots was able to defeat a new world order puppet like Jack Conway, the main stream media talking heads and the largest record of false accusations thrown over a senatorial candidate.

Tuesday night, MSNBC dedicated plenty of time – after Rand Paul’s speech- to demonize him and question his integrity and faithfulness to the large group of followers he managed to amass as he stands for freedom as well as fiscal and monetary sanity.  Ed Schultz, and other panelists basically already blamed Rand Paul for the economic collapse that would result from Congress not approving an increase of the debt ceiling without Paul having even set foot in the Capitol.   They said any attempt to stop the expanding government and the expanding debt would mean the instantaneous collapse of the US government and the start of a global depression.  Ed Schultz added that Paul will be “a real problem” for the Republicans, and that his association to the “Birthers” -a group that questions Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president due to the absence of a birth certificate that shows he was born in the US- would allow the conversation on Obama’s election legality to remain “on the air”.

In the meantime, Keith Olbermann rapidly tried to ridicule Paul’s position on having a smaller, less intrusive government by saying that Paul’s refusal to raise the debt ceiling or filibustering such increase, would be like supporting anarchy -since there wouldn’t be an almighty corrupt government in power.  Olbermann went on to say that if Paul took on the position to prevent the government of the United States to further enslave its citizens by expanding its powers and increasing the already out of control spending, he would indeed be calling for anarchy.  While Olbermann bashed Rand Paul, Rachel Maddow, another MSNBC talking head, reminded the audience that the movement to keep the government honest was not limited to Rand Paul, but that extended to other US senators.  She then questioned where exactly was the Republican party going, as more elected Congressmen and women in the House and Senate won their elections by promising a tough stand against the out of control central government.

This latest attempt to blame the economic disaster caused by the very banks in control of the US government and the very same corporations in control of the main stream media on a single senator, is proof of how desperate the Establishment is, given the fact more people continue to recognize the “man behind the curtain”; not only the puppets he runs on both political parties.  The urgent, almost previously scripted attempt to demonize Rand Paul as he fired up his crowd in Kentucky, is also a sign that the Establishment won’t let real democracy and freedom come to pass easily.  They will use all the trickery in their basket -including blaming one single man for the economic collapse- to keep and increase their power and control.
