Former Colonel Warns US Generating Enemies Beyond Capacity to Deal with Them

It's not just Russia, but it's beginning to look like North Korea may be Trump's first globalist war using the military first. He's escalated the war in Syria, where Russia and the Assad govt have already made serious gains against ISIS. Now it's ground troops going in there, without permission of that sovereign nation. No wonder Assad says he will consider us invaders. Then there's Saudi's war with Yemen—not our fight but Trump is escalating that too. The guys being fought there are enemies of ISIS.

In looking at North Korea, this one scares me. But again, why the hell do they want nukes? Look what happened to Libya when they got rid of their nukes. John Bolton has already been on Fox stressing regime change there and now drones are being sent to the border. NK knows they're on our growing list of countries targeted for regime change wars. This is the song of globalism, using the military first that Trump said he opposed.

I suspect it's the advice Trump is getting. He needs to clean house. He's going NeoCon. He's surrounded by them and they lie to get their way. It's no wonder the Deep State leadership is and the GOPe are out to get Trump.
Lawrence Wilkerson, a former Army colonel and chief of staff for Colin Powell at the United States Department of State, expressed this week strong criticism of the US government adding more and more nations to its enemies list. Speaking with host Paul Jay at the Real News Network this week, Wilkerson, who is a professor at the College of William & Mary, concludes that, even with the large amount of money the US spends on the military, it is “utterly beyond our capacity to deal with all these enemies” that the US has generated.

In the interview, which is largely focused on some individuals’ effort to influence US foreign policy toward creating intensified animosity between the governments of the US and Russia, Wilkerson explains further his concern about the long list of US enemies.

Wilkerson states:

What I can't fathom right now is why anyone would want, with the situation the way it is right now in this country, another enemy. You know that old conservation of enemies theory: You don't want any more than you can handle at any given time. Look at who we're lining up, Paul. We're lining up China. We're lining up Iran and all that goes along with Iran, including Hezbollah in Lebanon. We are lining up with North Korea. We are lining up with Russia. This is absurd. John McCain and Lindsay Graham can pontificate all day long, but I'm going to tell you that they're idiots. We do not need an enemy list that is beyond what we could even in the most wild moment contemplate handling. We don't have the military forces to handle all these enemies, and, yet, we're bearding them, as it were.
Col. Lawrence Wilkerson tells Paul Jay that from the expansion of NATO to the Western-led plundering of the former USSR, the US has given Russia enough reason to feel threatened:

Tillerson reportedly too "fatigued" to meet with South Korean leaders. Low energy! Sad!

I don't use microwave ovens. But I see you only have more blarney, blather and balderdash.

When an administration allows only a single entity to cover them, and that entity has done no reporting on a pretty big story, then yes, I'm going to be highly skeptical of them.

The Hermit Kingdom is not an expansionist regime, like the US today. Though it is notoriously repressive at home. Little comes out and little comes in. But once in a while there is a burst of activity like these missiles they recently shot.

Are their fears completely unjustified?
Absolutely not, as I posted before about some of our own provocative acts in their area.

So here's a Paleo-Right source, Justin Raimondo's article on what we may never hear much of in our mainstream media. Unfortunately, not at all from Fox which notoriously spins NeoCon propaganda to pound the drums of war and get the people frightened into wanting one. Raimondo was right about Iraq's mythical WMD prior to that war, as well as some of the false stories about Clinton's Balkan intervention including the fake genocide claims.

Quote:
The exercises, conducted jointly by US and South Korea and dubbed “Foal Eagle,” are a dress rehearsal for all-out war with the North. In addition to the USS Carl Vinson and a strike force of two guided missile destroyers and a cruiser, the US sent in a squadron of stealth fighter jets as well as B-52s and B-1Bs – these latter capable of carrying nuclear payloads. “Foal Eagle” is an annual exercise, but every year the amount of US firepower gets bigger – and in the context of rapidly rising tensions between Pyongyang and the rest of the world, this does nothing to ease the former’s well-known paranoia.

But it isn’t just paranoia that is motivating North Korean behavior: for the first time, there is open talk in US ruling circles of launching a preemptive strike against the regime of Kim Jong Un. As Time magazine puts it:

“Taking out North Korea’s two major nuclear sites with air strikes would be dangerous but probably not too difficult, U.S. officials say. The possibility of North Korean retaliation against Seoul, South Korea’s capital of 10 million and only 35 miles from North Korea, would be a complicating factor, they concede.”...

The reality is that Pyongyang has a crude but workable nuclear arsenal. This means that, in a sane world, military action is off the proverbial table. The problem is that we don’t live in such a world. And as crazy as Kim Jong Un may be, the talk of a preemptive strike proves the insanity is not limited to Pyongyang,

Right now, US policymakers must ask themselves two questions: how did we get here, and how do we get out?

We got here because the administration of George W. Bush quashed the beginnings of a political solution to the Korean conundrum.

The FULL story with more details:

http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2...he-korean-war/

Like I said, the NeoCons made a mess under George Bush with their new Bush Doctrine.
The Trump Administration has a chance to chart a new course and I think Americans, especially those who voted for him, expect that instead of singing the "song of Globalism" using military first and only as he said.

Using percentages make the military budget look smaller, but it really is way too much. Plus there's off the budget costs and then we have things like wounded and maimed soldiers needing care most of their lives from being put into conflicts.
