This isn’t exactly what Mike Pence told the graduating class of West Point on Saturday. He said it’s “a virtual certainty that you will fight on a battlefield for America at some point in your life,” which means, of course, people will die, not simply soldiers but countless innocent others.
Pence’s “battlefield for America” is a brazen lie. America has but one reason to wage wars in the Middle East—and that reason is Israel.
The trillion dollar wars past, present, and future in the Middle East—in Syria, Libya, Iraq, Yemen, and Iran—do not in any way benefit the US, and instead have made America an international outlaw.
The endgame cooked up by a cabal of neocons consists of destroying these nations, starving their people, and keeping various factions at each other’s throats (as they are now in Libya). In this way, they will not have the capacity to challenge Israel or the US.
The Arabs know how Israel operates. It is engaged in the slow genocide and ethnic cleansing of brother Arabs, the Palestinians. They know the Zionists hate and resent the Arabs—and hold special enmity for the Persians of Iran. The Zionist plan to steal the land and evict its rightful tenants is known to virtually every Arab and Iranian, while it is either largely unknown or ignored in America, thanks to a pro-Zionist corporate media.
Israel knows it cannot accomplish its goal of total domination without the US military (and even then, it will be virtually impossible, as the US is no longer able to decisively win wars, and hasn’t since the Korean and Vietnam wars).
Pence and Trump are Zionist facilitators. Pence supposedly believes in the evangelical Christian take on Israel. Christ cannot return unless Israel becomes the dominant psychopath in the neighborhood and a cataclysmic war killing millions is waged. This is known as the Battle of Armageddon. The Christians believe a pan-Arab alliance will attack Israel and be defeated by the Jewish God. The resultant mass murder will be celebrated as a “great day of God Almighty.”
This sort of mass psychosis calling for the genocide of Arabs, shared by Israelis and Christians alike, runs all the way to the top, especially now with an easily swayed Trump—who is a geopolitical moron—under the influence of his Orthodox Jewish son-in-law and his wife, Ivanka, who converted to Orthodox Judaism. Her husband supports crazed, racist, and psychopathic settlers who have flooded Arab olive groves with raw sewage and consistently attack, injure, and kill Palestinians. He shares a close relationship with Bibi Netanyahu.
Mike Pence and Trump’s neocons will continue to agitate for various invasions at the behest of Israel. The Zionists have long tried to manipulate presidents and Congress—the latter in a dangerous AIPAC voodoo trance—and despite the fact Israel-first neocons hate Trump, they are delighted he has actually considered terror bombings of Iranian cities and infrastructure.
It’s said Trump doesn’t want a war with Iran and Venezuela. He took his national security adviser John Bolton to the woodshed over remarks to the contrary.
But this does not matter. We have witnessed how impotent and confused this president is. Mike Pence, the neocons, evangelical fantasists, and much of the American-Jewish community are pushing hard to make Armageddon a reality—or at least the capitulation of Iran, which will be impossible.
In general, Zionists don’t buy this Armageddon nonsense, but are not above pandering to it in order to motivate the US to eventually attack its enemies. In fact, the Israeli government has pandered to Christians for years despite the fact many hate Christian dispensationalists almost to the same degree they loathe Muslims and Arabs.
Mike Pence’s speech gave us a preview of things to come. He expects the US to take on Israel’s enemies, never mind the cost in life and treasure. This sort of behavior will result in the downfall of the American Empire—along with accompanying economic and social problems—and if we survive, if we are fortunate, we may get to see the neocons and warmongers like Pence face a tribunal and suffer serious consequences for their bigotry and psychopathy.
