Sometimes They Let Slip The Game Plan

A lot of times people just don't understand the big picture, and when someone talks about "fascists" or the "agenda" for world domination they'll roll their eyes or snort at what they consider a preposterous fantasy. They simply will not believe our country has anything but the purest of intentions.
But I would ask them this - why does america have 800+ bases around the world in 140 countries, and why the hell is the US military slaughtering civilians in Afghanistan and Iraq?

CENTCOM's Master Plan and U.S. Global Hegemony - United States of America is the name; intimidation is the game.

"Yet, from time to time, a U.S. leader lets slip an expression so revealing that it warrants a thousand times greater weight than the vague, mealy-mouthed banalities they routinely dispense. I came across such a statement recently. In seeking funds in 2007 for construction of a $62 million ammunition storage facility at Bagram Air Base, Admiral William J. Fallon, then the commander of the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), referred to Bagram as "the centerpiece for the CENTCOM Master Plan for future access to and operations in Central Asia."

Pause to savor this phrase for a moment; let it roll around in your mind: CENTCOM Master Plan for future access to and operations in Central Asia. What an intriguing expression! What dramatic images of future U.S. military actions it evokes! But can those actions be anything other than the very sort that empires undertake? Ask yourself: why does the U.S. military anticipate conducting operations in Central Asia, a region that lies thousands of miles from the United States and comprises countries that lack either the capacity or the intention to seriously harm Americans who mind their own business in their own national territory? Indeed, what is the U.S. military doing in Central Asia in the first place? Have you ever heard of
"the Great Game"?

Oh, and by the way we never torture.

no surprise to me. I don't think you even have to be a "master conspiracist" like you so masterfully are, to believe, indeed to be blatantly bombarded with the fact that the American government is in the empire building business. The worlds getting smaller, the resources are drying up, and goddammit, we are going to continue to take as much of it as we can get our hands on no matter who dies or how many.

It seems people will believe anything they hear, but it's not what they say, it's what they do that speaks volumes.
