Why the loss of Afghanistan ultimately ends the Empire

This episode and its implications will not be lost on other servants of the Empire. Will the its corrupt puppets in the Middle East, Africa, South America and elsewhere be comfortable following the Empire’s dictates? Will they obediently “build back better,” ploughing over their economies and social fabric, destroying their people’s lives? After Afghanistan they will have to think about making nice with their own people and seek cooperation with other global powers, primarily China and Russia. The Empire has already been check-mated in Ukraine; it lost Syria and their hold on Iraq has all but slipped away. Afghanistan may well prove to be its mortal wound.

The Trilateral Commission was founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller as an off-shoot of the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR). David Rockefeller was chairman of the CFR in 1970 and subsequently became the founding chairman of the Trilateral Commission. Soon the membership of the Commission had grown to 300 members, including prominent political figures like Zbigniew Brzezinski. Most members of the Trilateral Commission are bankers, media moguls, or corporate CEOs, primarily from North America, Europe and Japan, while all members of the CFR are U.S. Citizens.

US Policy Shift On Iran-Iraq Again Shows Brzezinski Rules In Washington

Posted by seumasach on July 20, 2008


This, indeed, looks like the new Obama foreign as we seeit  already unfolding under Bush. But, it has to said that it looks like utter fantasy, a wish list of targets from an ailing hegemon which looks destined to be checked at every stage by the diplomacy of Russia, South America, Iran, China and Africa; in short, by the movement of emerging and reemerging nations given such stimulus by US/UK aggression. Already, the latter are faltering in Zimbabwe, Sudan, Kosovo and Burma: the game is just too transparent. The shift is, after all, the result of military defeat in Iraq and Afghanistan, from which the allies are retreating whilst sounding the charge. We can expect retreat to turn into a rout over the next year as the US/UK financial system implodes and all and sundry jump ship leaving the oligarchy high and dry.
 Looming Attack On Pakistan Spells Nuclear 
Confrontations With China, Russia & Their Allies
Webster Tarpley
Washington, DC, July 17, 2008 — With the Bush regime sending a top State Department diplomat to sit down with Iranian officials, with signs that the US departure from Iraq may now be accelerated, and with Israel beginning to make deals with Hezbollah, some observers in this capital are beginning to celebrate Peace in Our Time in an outburst of midsummer euphoria. But this perspective is an illusion: the United States and NATO now escalating the hopeless and unwinnable Afghan war, and is preparing to send US and NATO forces on the ground to seize parts of Pakistan, a country which is almost 3 times more populous than Iran, and possesses a nuclear arsenal and the means to deliver it. The Bush-Cheney-neocon era in foreign policy is over, and the Brzezinski-Trilateral-Rockefeller-Soros phase of aggression has begun; the US hit list now features Chinese allies like Sudan, Zimbabwe, and Pakistan. Brzezinski is striving to put together some huge provocation for the Beijing Olympics, to make the Chinese government lose face and begin disintegrating. The ultimate targets of the new Obama-Brzezinski foreign policy are Russia, China, and the other members and friends of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the main pole of resistance in the world to the designs of Washington and London. The stakes are now much higher than a mere conventional clash in the Persian Gulf. Brzezinski’s adventurism goes far beyond that of the neocons, and objectively places the danger of a thermonuclear exchange on the world agenda. Watch for the Polish-Czech-Lithuanian missile crisis, a Balkan crisis, and a crisis between Georgia and Russia to point the world in this ominous new direction.
