Maybe Nothing Can Stop The ‘American Empire’ From Suffering The Same Fate As Rome
Maybe Nothing Can Stop The ‘American Empire’ From Suffering The Same Fate As Rome By William B. Stoecker – All News Pipeline
The ‘Beginning Of The End’ Began When Our ‘Republic’ Became ‘The Empire’ & The US Govt Began Rigging Wars, Manufacturing Enemies And Declaring War Upon God & The American People
Since our beginning with the Revolutionary War, America has been at war almost non-stop, counting the Indian wars of past centuries and innumerable almost forgotten foreign misadventures, like our invasion of Russia at the end of WWII at Archangel and Vladivostok for no clear purpose and with no plan, or our war in the Philippines following our Spanish American War. The Indian Wars, the Mexican War, the Spanish American War, and our fighting against Filipino rebels were clearly wars of conquest, the beginnings of our American Empire that has replaced our Republic.
The death toll for us, without even considering the soldiers who were wounded and often left permanently maimed, or the deaths of civilians, is considerable. Looking just at some of our more recent wars, 2,446 Americans died stealing Spain’s territories, and 4,196 more fighting the Filipino rebels. The toll for WWI was 116,516; WWII cost 405,399; Korea killed 36,516 of our best; Vietnam wasted 58,209 more; the Gulf war ended 294 American lives; our conquest of Iraq cost us 4,497, and the eternal and pointless Afghan War has killed 2,216 more. This is without even counting our misadventures in Lebanon and Somalia, or Slick Willy’s attacks on the Christian Serbs, who had been our allies in WWII, or the invasions of Grenada and Panama.
The Cold War and our present demonization of Putin provided the excuse for our bloated “defense” establishment; our expenditures on the military are higher than those of any other nation, and exceed the military spending of the next few nations combined. Note that US troops defend the borders of other nations, but not our own against the hordes of migrant invaders who despise us. Here is how the game is played.
The RINOs spend trillions of dollars we don’t have and cannot afford on mostly imaginary military threats, running up our national debt, a very real threat that will destroy us (unless the rabid chairborne commando neocons get us into the nuclear holocaust they seem to want). The Demoncraps let the RINOs do this because the RINOs let them spend trillions more dollars we don’t have and cannot afford on mostly imaginary “social justice” needs. The RINOs get campaign contributions from people in the aerospace and defense industries, and the generals and admirals get cushy, high-paying jobs when they retire, on top of their huge pensions. The Demoncraps get to buy the votes of the multi-generational welfare parasite class they have created. This is a win/win situation, save for the taxpayers and the inner city Blacks whose families have been destroyed.
The excuse for the Spanish-American War was the explosion on the battleship Maine, which we had sent into Havana’s harbor for no good reason at a time when Cuba was a Spanish territory and the Hearst newspapers (the equivalent of the New York Slimes or CNN or MSNBC today) were clamoring for war. We blamed this on the Spanish, claiming that they had deliberately destroyed our ship with a mine, despite the fact that Spain wanted desperately to avoid war with the US. Later investigations proved that the explosion was internal, as if someone in the Navy Department had planted a bomb on one of our own ships. We won Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines in that war, and the ungrateful Filipinos, wanting independence, began resisting us, leading to our first Southeast Asian war. Our expansion into this area also helped to lead us, years later, into war with Japan.
WWI began when most European nations were connected by several entangling alliances, supposedly for mutual protection (against the other alliances), but which actually got them into war, not out of it. The tragedy was set in motion when a Serbian nationalist, Gavrilo Princip, shot Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie on 6/28/14 in Sarajevo. This makes no sense, for the Austro-Hungarian Empire controlled some Serbian areas adjacent to the Serbian nation, but Ferdinand was on record as favoring more autonomy for the Serbs. But Princip belonged to a secret society called the Black Hand, and most of us patriots are aware of the sinister role played by various secret groups throughout history and the way they mostly seem interconnected and to have links with the Mason/Templar cult. Austrians were outraged and Austria issued the excessive July Ultimatum to Serbia, and then shelled Sarajevo on 7/28, whereupon Czarist Russia, playing the role of protector of the Slavs, mobilized its reserves.
Then Austria and the Kaiser’s Germany, bound by a treaty with Austria, mobilized their forces, and demanded that Russia demobilize. When Russia refused, on 8/6/1914 Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire declared war on Russia, whereupon France, bound by a treaty with Russia, mobilized, and the fight was on. Had Russia merely sent troops into Serbia to protect them from aggression, on the condition that they agree to some of Austria’s more reasonable demands, the tragedy might have been averted. Grigori Rasputin, whatever history says about his drunkenness and womanizing, wanted Russia to avoid war, and had at least some influence in the Czar’s court, but he was hospitalized after an assassination attempt on 7/12/14. Perhaps he could have persuaded Russia to take a milder tack, or the Kaiser could have tried to compromise with Russia and restrain the Austrians, but it was not to be.
