US imperialism’s Stamp is All over Chaos around the World

US imperialisms Stamp is All over Chaos around the World

At the Left Forum, Fight Imperialism Stand Together (FIST) took part in a debate with other socialist organizations on the character anti-imperialist struggle must take in this period. This debate is central to the overall struggle for liberation in a period where imperialisms destruction is more than evident throughout the planet. FIST remains firm in asserting that the primary role of revolutionaries in the US is to defend and fight for the self-determination of oppressed nations. Too often, what passes as the left in the US makes the grave mistake of siding with white supremacy by disregarding facts and parroting imperialism’s racist war narratives. What is of primary importance, then, is for revolutionaries to expose the true character of war within the context of the chaos US imperialism is causing all over the globe.

When it comes to the destruction of US imperialism, no situation is graver than in Yemen. Saudi Arabia, US imperialism’s ally in the region, is waging a bloody invasion in an attempt to reinstall the compliant government of President Mansur Hadi. Saudi Arabia’s ruling class sees its geopolitical and corporate interests threatened by the new Houthi-led government. This revolutionary provisional government has declared independence from Saudi Arabia’s neo-colonial rule, which has kept Yemen mired in poverty, sectarian strife, and political repression. Saudi Arabia’s response has been a brutal offensive that has killed over 4,000 and injured over 7,000 more.

Saudi Arabia’s invasion of Yemen has the US imperial stamp all over it. Without the billions of dollars worth of military aid from Washington in exchange for oil, the House of Saud would not have the capacity to wage its war of aggression. Nor could it conduct its documented human rights abuses, from the indiscriminate repression of its Shia population to the longstanding practice of repressing any challenge to its rule, with impunity. However, US imperialism’s economic and geopolitical dependency on Saudi Arabia has silenced the “international community” on its human rights abuses. Since 2010 Saudi Arabia has received over 90 billion in military equipment and training from the US in exchange for nearly 15 percent of all oil exports coming out of Saudi Arabia. The US-Saudi relationship has enriched the monopoly private military contractors and oil magnets of Wall Street. This relationship ensures that much, if not all, of Saudi Arabia’s destruction of Yemen is made in the USA.

Now enter Israel. The youngest settler state in history is also one of US imperialism’s largest trading partners, with 25 percent of its “defense” budget being supplied by Washington. Yet, recently re-elected Prime Minister Netanyahu has demanded Washington dish out 45 billion more in military aid. This demand is framed as a necessary step to defend the Zionist state from Iran. However, recent developments tell a different story. Reports indicate Israel’s colonial military has been aiding foreign backed terrorists in Syria and is now re-engaging in a bombing campaign of the Gaza strip. These imperialist ventures have everything to do with Iran, but not for the reasons stated by officials of the Israeli state.

US imperialism bankrolls Israels war machine because both it and Saudi Arabia share geopolitical interests with the Zionist state, especially on the subject of Iran. Ultimately, each imperialist country sees Iran as a primary threat to their expansionist ambitions. Expansionism and colonialism is at the very root of Zionism’s foundation, and the forced removal and genocide of the indigenous Palestinian population is a primary example. But what is often dismissed is the grand imperialist scheme that unites the forces of Empire. The ultimate aim of imperialism is to destabilize sovereign nations as a means to enrich the capitalist class at the head of the US-Israel-Saudi alliance. In this time of worldwide capitalist crisis, where the illegitimate rule of Wall Street and its surrogates can no longer reform itself to achieve the objective of endless profit, imperialism’s unholy alliance has no where else to turn but to consolidate its murderous military machinery.

What else can explain Ukraine’s current situation? In 2013, US imperialism empowered fascist forces to oust the government of Ukraine, causing a humanitarian crisis the nation has yet to recover from. The United Nations has confirmed that 2 million people have been displaced from their homeland. In the last year, nearly 7,000 have been killed in the ongoing war between the illegitimate fascist government in Kiev and the resistance of the Ukrainian people. Yet, the IMF has made a multi-billion dollar deal with Kiev on behalf of its corporate masters in the midst of the carnage. Similar to the massive investments corporations like Raytheon and Boeing make in the Zionist military establishment, the corporate incentive behind the war in Ukraine is clear. War is profitable, and capitalists will use any means to wage it.

However, the chaos of imperialism cannot be fully explained by the profits of war, particularly because much of the war being waged today has brought great cost to the imperialist system as a whole. The invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq have cost trillions and counting and have contributed to the never-ending economic crisis in the US. In 2011, imperialism’s war on Libya sparked a jihadist flame that has left the nation too unstable for consistent corporate penetration. What the US-NATO and GCC alliance regard as “intelligence assets” in groups such as ISIS, Al Nusra Front, and other assorted jihadist elements have unleashed uncontrollable chaos throughout the region following the fall of Libyas socialist state. Yet no matter the losses and consequences the ruling class may face under imperialism’s terminal crisis, it is the people of the world who suffer.

This crisis of imperialism is both political and economic. Much of the world sees how imperialism’s policy of plunder is neither sustainable nor beneficial for humanity. Russia, China, Iran, and many other nations are trying to align themselves in a manner that will defend their sovereignty in the face of increasing threat of destabilization from Washington and its allies. Economically, the world capitalist system is incapable of recovery and is seeking to push through policies such as the TPP to extend the dominance of Wall Street capital. In short, no plan the imperialists can devise can escape the fact that the system of profit for the few and misery for the many has reached its natural limits.

But if the best the left in the US can do at this point is support Bernie Sanders, an open supporter of Zionist Israel and the war in Afghanistan, than we can expect the chaos of imperialism to reign for the years to come. However, there is a war escalating in the US that brings the possibility of internationalism to take root again here in the citadel of imperialism. This war is on Black America. The Black Lives Matter mobilization has brought the daily murder of Black people by police to the forefront of the US political landscape. It is here where unity between oppressed people imprisoned between US borders and those terrorized beyond them can truly develop. It is not enough to highlight the bloated US military budget or denounce imperialist war for its impact on the economic situation inside of the US, however important. We must align ourselves with the people of the world in their just struggle against the chaos of imperialism so we can wage it here with similar courage and strength.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
