America’s long war against humanity

A new book by Michel Chossudovsky

by Dr phil Henriette Hanke GŁttinger

Early in 2015 the Canadian economist Michel Chossudovsky presented a study on the connection between globalization and the wars of the past 15 years in English language. Already as a professor of economics at the University of Ottawa – retired today – he did research in the field of globalization. He founded the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG) in Montreal, which he presides today. He is as well the editor of Global Research. Thanks to his incorruptibility and straightforwardness in the analysis, Chossudovsky enjoys international reputation. On that point Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Minister of Finance under the Reagan administration wrote: “He is a model of integrity in the analysis; his book provides an honest assessment of the extreme danger, which the hegemonic US Neo-C onservatism represents for life on earth.”
The “Globalization of War”, as it is pursued by the United States until today since NATO’s war of aggression against Yugoslavia, serves the expansion of American hegemony – so Chossudovsky. In pursuit of this objective the Western military alliance wages wars or destabilizes sovereign states with intelligence operations. Up to now they have targeted the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Africa, Central Asia and the Far East. The long-term goal is the encirclement of Russia and China. These plans also correspond to the arrogance of the United States to divide our earth into six “areas of responsibility” over which they claim the military control. This hybris shows that the United States have lost touch with reality in our today’s world: Reality means a more equal cooperation between the countries around the world.
Closely associated with US military action is the approach in the economic sphere. Free trade agreements in favor of transnational corporations and the destabilization of financial markets and national currencies are to disrupt the national economies. Chossudovsky labels this process with the term “economic warfare”.
On the basis of careful case studies on Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria or Libya Chossudovsky shows, how the United States have attempted to extend their hegemony since September 11, 2001 under the pretext of “self-defense” with the “war against terrorism”. The example Libya makes it clear that it was a matter of driving China’s National Petroleum Corporation as a competitor from the field and to put hands on Libyan oil fields. At the same time Libya should serve as an access to Sahel and Central Africa an endeavour which Chossudovsky characterizes as “Redrawing the Map of Africa”.
Subject of discussion in his book is also the USA’s today’s fateful role today in connection with the various rebel groups and the IS-state in Syria and Iraq. This allows the reader to weigh the messages received from the territory accordingly and to bring things into meaningful lines. These considerations here address only some aspects of the rich wealth of geo-political facts included in this book.
Former Canadian Minister of National Defence, Paul Hellyer, recommends the book as follows: “Michel Chossudovsky’s book is a must for anyone who gives preference to peace and hope versus permanent war, death, rootlessness and despair”. One can only join this recommendation after reading the book.     •

“Totally dependent: United States provides secret code for Swiss army”
hhg. Reading the “Aargauer Zeitung” (AZ) of 13 August 2015, you might first rub your eyes in disbelief and see whether you have read correctly. There is actually an article entitled “Totally dependent: United States provide secret code for Swiss army”. Our air forces with its F/A-18 fighter jets, the Super Puma Helicopters, Cougar and Eurocopters have a military GPS with a special code. “This is manufactured by the US Intelligence Service NSA. The encryption usually changes every week.” Thus, our army receives their new code from the United States on a weekly basis. “Without that key, the GPS devices are falling back in the civilian, error-prone mode” – the AZ reports. But it is even more absurd. The F/A-18 are equipped with the guided missile AMRAAM which is crucial for the Swiss air defense. Now, the software of AMRAAM needs an update periodically. This is made in the United States. During that process, “no Swiss staff is accepted. The source code that the Americans are programming remains hidden” – says AZ. Hence the control of the F/A-18 missile is in the hands of the United States ... This is in absolute contradiction to the Constitution of the Swiss Confederation which codifies the “general provisions” of the Swiss Confederation in Art. 2 as follows: “1. The Swiss Confederation shall protect the liberty and rights of the people and safeguard the independence and security of the country.”

US run by 400 oligarchs

US politics is determined by about 400 people with a combined wealth of trillions of dollars, Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to former US Secretary of State Colin Powell, said in an interview with Radio Baltkom.
The ex-diplomat claims that government decision-making is controlled by 0.001 percent of the US population.
“It is the oligarchs who control the decision-making from the backstage”, he says. “In the US there are about 400 people with a combined wealth of trillions. It is an impertinent and degrading way of distributing the wealth in the country. It is great inequality. The power is concentrated in the hands of about 0.001 percent of the population”, Wilkerson added.
For 16 years the 60-year-old was one of Colin Powell’s closest staff, between 2002 and 2005 Wilkerson was chief of staff in the State Department. The retired colonel served in the Vietnam war, later he served as deputy director of the Marine Corps War College at Quantico, Virginia.     •
