The Terrible Troika’s Advisers

The empire is bankrupt and in the throes of death. Its operatives are writhing with it, hanging onto the last shreds of the gory glory that came with directing American Manifest Destiny abroad. Unstable systems and people are most dangerous before dissolution and collapse.

This is why the advisers behind at least one of the presidential wannabees should be of interest.

But first, if you missed the primitive, atavistic utterances made by the terrible troika in Arizona with respect to Syria and Iran, here they are, excerpted in this Guardian post titled, “prolific proliferators of confusion.”

Except that there is nothing confused about the blood that’ll flow if one of these losers ascends to the executive throne. The Romney-Santorum-Gingrich bellicosity rivals Bush’s. The absence of any learning curve extends, seemingly, to their receptive audience, which applauded their every promise of action abroad.

Any criticism The Terrible Troika levies at Obama is for “showing weakness by not leading the allied air campaign in Libya, where the U.K and France played prominent roles, and not being tough enough on Iran to stop its nuclear-weapons efforts.”

More wars is what we’ll net with the three crappy candidates.

Romney’s Team sports these neoconservative heavy hitters:

Cofer Black, a former head of Central Intelligence Agency’s counterterrorism center and executive of the security firm Blackwater, now Xe Services; Meghan O’Sullivan, a Bloomberg View columnist and former White House official who oversaw Iraq and Afghanistan policy; Eliot Cohen, director of the Strategic Studies Program at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies and a former counselor at Rice’s State Department; Dov Zakheim, the former Pentagon comptroller; and John Lehman, Ronald Reagan’s Navy secretary.

And “Robert Joseph, a White House National Security Council aide during Bush’s first term and later a State Department official.”

    Chilling and disgusting.
    (Thrown = throne, dear, still loving you from afar, thanks for your work.)

    “executive thrown” = executive throne, I think. And you are right on, war, war, war is all the we dissolve into debt and default. It was a great dream…for awhile.

    Yesterday, Cavuto spoke with Rep Marky of Massachusetts about Marky’s thoughts to release the STRATEGIC OIL RESERVES into the marketplace in an attempt to lower gas prices. To me, this idea is symptomatic of the stratospheric positions these politicians consider themselves to hold. So, why is there any surprise that these same idiots think they can control vast regions of foreign lands, lunatic religious theocracies, and nearly pre-modern infrastructure societies?

    If Ron Paul and his messages are not heeded, then all that will be wanting will be to find the right person with a moustache and arm salute favorable to the masses to take us into the void.

    What is really interesting is that RT has an article that reports that the news administration and the Republicans, maybe even the present Democrat administration are going on data collected in 2005 that has not been true since 2007 when Iran dropped its nuclear weapons program. This same trick was used on G.W. Bush when someone stuck in his speech that Iraq was buying nuclear material from another nation, after his speech, it came out that he had given false information, making him look like a fool. Since it was a while back, I may have some parts incorrect; however, these same people were there then too.

    I notice that these military “experts” (e.g. idiot savants) have political science, law, and economic degrees. Most of them did Reserve duty or CIA work but not active military. As for John Bolton, superhawk – Wikipedia writes:

    “He was a member of the Yale Political Union, and he ultimately earned a B.A. summa cum laude in 1970 and a J.D. in 1974. Bolton supported the Vietnam War and enlisted in the Maryland Army National Guard, but did not serve in Vietnam. He wrote in his Yale 25th reunion book ‘I confess I had no desire to die in a Southeast Asian rice paddy. I considered the war in Vietnam already lost.’ ”

    As rising political hacks, they moved up the suckup chain into political appointments and into the “private” oink-consultant-sector. These are the geniuses who predict “mushroom clouds”, take out a Khadaffi who comes clean on nuclear weapons, destabilizes a real nuclear power (Pakistan) and win hearts and minds with Abu Ghraib and public burnings of Korans.

    It is getting quite apparent that Obama is heading to an undeserved second term over the 3 main Republican bozos.
