Republican victory gives neocons, war hawks bully pulpit
GOP eyes expanded aid to Syria’s Islamic rebels, increased pressure on Russia over Ukraine
The Washington Times says as the GOP takeover of the Senate provides neocons and war hawks with their bully pulpit; there will be increasing pressure for the White House to send heavy weapons to Ukrainian forces battling pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine and sophisticated arms to Islamic opposition rebels in Syria.
Increasing aid to Syria’s Islamic rebels is likely to be among the first Republican priorities, John McCain said.
The Ukrainian crisis is not about Ukraine. It not about helping Ukrainians. Why would the U.S., in the other side of the world, be worried about what happens in Ukraine? In 1997, Zbigniew Brzezinski wrote a book entitled, the Grand Chessboard. An excerpt from the description reads as follows:
Eurasia is the ”grand chessboard” on which America’s supremacy will be ratified and challenged in the years to come. The task facing the United States, he argues, is to manage the conflicts and relationships in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East so that no rival superpower arises to threaten our interests or our well-being.
In 1998, Brzezinski wrote, “Without Ukraine, Russia ceases to be a Eurasian empire” while arguing for expanding NATO to include Ukraine.
According to Ben Barrack, there is clearly a fixation on the part of Brzezinski that controlling Eurasia is key to U.S. dominance. However, what he’s clearly been missing is that Turkey is the country that has been seeking Eurasian dominance while NATO countries continue to view it as an ally.
Brzezinski, who funded Osama bin Laden in the 1980s, has a history of supporting Islamic fundamentalists over Russia.
But Republicans also have a history of supporting Islamic fundamentalists.
According to Janet Levy:
Republicans aid and abet the Muslim Brotherhood.
McCain and other Republicans played a key role in the Muslim Brother takeover in Egypt.
The Republican candidate for governor in California was a shariah finance advocate.
New Jersey Governor Christie and Muslim Brotherhood operatives are as thick as thieves.
Eric Cantor helped a Muslim Brother gain a seat as a Virginia delegate.
Many Republican members of Congress criticized Bachmann, et al., when they exposed the infiltration of the U.S. government, particularly national security, by the Muslim Brotherhood and ignored their calls for investigations…
Is there any decent Republican left to fight the homosexual and abortion agenda the U.S. government has been promoting for years?
If they were not so busy with wicked wars they could be warring just wars.
About increasing aid to Syria’s Islamic rebels, don’t American constituents know that these same rebels have been torturing, raping and slaughtering Christians in Syria? So Republicans aid and abet their actions.
As a Brazilian, what I can say is that with Obama, the U.S. government is wicked. With Republicans, is it better?
