OrientalReview.org: How Evil The U.S. Government Is

On February 23rd, the great geostrategic military analyst Brian Berletic headlined “CSIS War Game: US vs China over Taiwan – Provoking War to Preserve US Primacy,” and he stated, and accurately documented, that though the U.S. Government officially recognizes that Taiwan is a part of China, the U.S. Government war-games against China in eager preparation for the eventuality that Taiwan will (the U.S. regime obviously hopes) declare itself not to be a part of China, and China then invades the breakaway island Taiwan off its coast, and the U.S. Government then invades China in response, in order to assert that Taiwan (by America’s new fiat despite those prior agreements) is not a part of China, and that therefore the U.S. Government’s saying in its signed agreements with China’s Government, that it was part of China, were lying — despite what America had signed with China’s Government.

Here is how Berletic puts this, starting at 9:07 to 10:11 in his video talk, as he reads from the official U.S. State Department document (which is at https://www.state.gov/u-s-relations-with-taiwan/), which his video shows as he reads from it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyAq8xAhmSI&t=547s:

9:07 The U.S State Department’s own official website, under U.S relations

9:10 with Taiwan, admits to all of this [now reading from the document]

“The United States has a long-standing one

9:16 China policy”

and “we do not support Taiwan Independence.”

9:24 And so everything that the US is therefore doing to encourage Taiwan’s

9:29 independence, its autonomy, this flies in the face of the their own agreement they made with Beijing and the People’s

9:36 Republic of China. It’s very obvious who is provoking the conflict here over Taiwan. I’ve also showed this article [Voice of America, 2 December 2021, “US Nearly Doubled Military Personnel Stationed in Taiwan This Year”]

9:44 many times, and it’s very important for people to understand this. This is Voice of America, U.S Government-funded media:

9:50 “U.S nearly doubled military personnel stationed in Taiwan this year”. This was from 2021, so the U.S. has troops

9:58 on an island they officially recognize as part of China, and they — they do not

10:04 recognize Taiwan’s independence, and so they are blatantly trampling Chinese sovereignty here by doing this.

10:11 …

Of course, China didn’t authorize U.S. troops to be occupying their island of Taiwan. This is an act of war by the U.S. Government, against China’s Government.

The U.S. regime lies routinely to its own subjects (us ‘citizens’, whom its actions display that it despises) and works us up into frenzies of fear and hatred against whaterver targeted nation’s leader is the ‘autocrat’ or ‘dictator’ at the given time when the U.S. regime is instructing its media whom to work us up to fear and hate, at that time.

To show how it works, in one of the U.S. Government’s now vassal-nations, here is how this technique had functioned in Ukraine, amongst that nation’s public, prior to and now since, America’s coup against them in February 2014:

The U.S. Government had engaged the Gallup polling organization, both before and after the coup, in order to poll Ukrainians, and especially ones who lived in its Crimean independent republic, regarding their views on U.S., Russia, NATO, and the EU; and, generally, Ukrainians were far more pro-Russia than pro-U.S., NATO, or EU, but this was especially the case in Crimea; so, America’s Government knew that Crimeans would be especially resistant. However, this was not really new information. During 2003-2009, only around 20% of Ukrainians had wanted NATO membership, while around 55% opposed it. In 2010, Gallup found that whereas 17% of Ukrainians considered NATO to mean “protection of your country,” 40% said it’s “a threat to your country.” Ukrainians predominantly saw NATO as an enemy, not a friend. But after Obama’s February 2014 Ukrainian coup, “Ukraine’s NATO membership would get 53.4% of the votes, one third of Ukrainians (33.6%) would oppose it.” However, afterward, the support averaged around 45% — still over twice as high as had been the case prior to the coup.

In other words: what Obama did was generally successful, it grabbed Ukraine, or most of it, and it changed Ukrainians’ minds regarding America and Russia. But only after the subsequent passage of time did the American billionaires’ neoconservative heart become successfully grafted into the Ukrainian nation so as to make Ukraine a viable place to position U.S. nuclear missiles against Moscow (which is the U.S. Government’s goal there). Furthermore: America’s rulers also needed to do some work upon U.S. public opinion. Not until February of 2014 — the time of Obama’s coup — did more than 15% of the American public have a “very unfavorable” view of Russia. (Right before Russia invaded Ukraine, that figure had already risen to 42%. America’s press — and academia or public-policy ‘experts’ — have been very effective at managing public opinion, for the benefit of America’s billionaires.)

Back in 2012, when Obama was running for re-election, against Mitt Romney, that figure was still remaining at 11%, where it had been approximately ever since Gallup had started polling on this question in 1989. So, Obama, and the U.S. Congress, and the newsmedia owners who had sold all of those politicians to the American public, had a lot of work yet to do after Obama’s re-election in 2012. During that political contest, Obama was aware of this fact, and used it to his own advantage against the overtly hyper-anti-Russian candidate, Romney.

A major reason why the American people re-elected U.S. President Barack Obama, instead of elected a new President Romney, was Romney’s having said of Russia, on 26 March 2012,

Russia, this is, without question, our number one geopolitical foe. They — they fight every cause for the world’s worst actors. … Russia is the — the geopolitical foe.

Not just “a” geopolitical foe, but “the” geopolitical foe.” (Wow! In a world with growing jihadist movements, such as Al Qaeda and ISIS?) The prior month, Gallup had polled, and reported, that 11% figure; so, Romney was jumping the gun a lot on this, maybe because he was more concerned about fundraising than about appealing to voters. He knew he would need lots of money in order to have even a chance against Obama.

It’s an entirely bipartisan technique, because BOTH of America’s two Parties are controlled by their top individual donors, and because some of them are Democrats but others of them are Republicans, and so each of the Parties is obsessively catering to its own billionaires, without whom it couldn’t even POSSIBLY win national elections. 57.16% of the donated political money in the U.S. comes from the richest 1% of the richest 1% — the richest ten-thousandth — of the U.S. population. That’s more than half coming from just this super-rich class. Here’s how that worked out in the 2016 U.S. Presidential ‘election’.  The billionaires were absolutely decisive. And ESPECIALLY all billionaires are “neoconservatives,” which means U.S. imperialists, and they especially want to conquer Russia, and they especially want to conquer China, and they want most of all to conquer the whole word eventually. And this is how they do it, and have been doing it: by constantly lying to the public, via their ‘news’-media and social-‘science’ scholars, in law, economics, etc., whom their media hire as their ‘experts’ to propagandize that hatred and that fear, against ‘Saddam’s WMD’, and ‘Putin’s unprovoked invasion’, and ‘China’s unfair trading-practices’, etc. These are lies ‘authenticated’ by their ‘allies’ and ‘experts’.

Like any regime, it thrives, and grows, on hatred. But what deserves to be hated — and despised, and to be replaced — the most, is itself. And their biggest sin is their refusal even to consider that this even might be the case. Their closed-mindedness caps their evilness; and this is what causes them to be perhaps the most dangerous villains who ever existed, in real life, ever, anywhere. Because that’s what they all will have been if they bring on a nuclearized WW III — which they are pushing toward.

That is how evil the U.S. Government today is.
