This week, while across America thousands of Veterans and other concerned Citizens protest the corporate takeover of our Republic and hundreds of those Patriots are beaten and arrested, our Kleptocracy-controlled puppet president Bushbama traded his unearned Nobel Peace Prize for a well-deserved Salesman-of-the-Year trophy from the Military Industrial Complex by sealing deals with our Australian and Pacific “allies” to establish or expand American military bases there to assure the continuing payment of trillions of borrowed dollars to war profiteers like GE, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, Halliburton, KBR, Bechtel and the rest to defend us all from China – our primary source of production – should they ever choose to attack America – their primary source of consumption.
“The United States announced plans Wednesday to establish a permanent military presence in Australia, part of a high-profile foreign policy shift toward Asia that is intended as a counterbalance to China’s growing power. Starting next summer, the U.S. will send 250 Marines to bases here for six-month tours, eventually rotating 2,500 troops through the country. President Obama announced the partnership at a news conference with Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, describing it as a key step in his administration’s evolving emphasis on the Asia Pacific region as the U.S. winds down wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.”
“China is apparently a little upset about this, probably because of the explicit reference to ‘counteracting China’s growing power.’ But let’s be realistic, here. Australia is 4,641 miles [actually less between nearest borders] from China. It’s only 2,600 miles from Northern Alaska to China. The US already has presences in Vietnam, Singapore and the Philippines. There’s no reason in the world to station 250 Marines in Australia, and it’s beyond a joke to say that they have anything to do with containing China. This needless drive to place little army men around the globe like it’s a Risk board, regardless of the expense, only serves a purpose for the little megalomaniacs in the Pentagon who think we have to stretch our military might everywhere. For the rest of us, it just flushes our tax dollars down the drain.”
“The transcontinental apathy to America’s takeover of Australia had dulled me to dreariness. Sycophantic talkback and commentary saluting the smooth transition of our country into a US territory made me wonder why I bothered leaving all those notes. Luckily a repeat broadcast of US President Obama’s Parliament House speech has risen me from the somnambulance of my fellow Cobbers. (NB for folks under 25, that’s what Aussies used to call our Buddies)… Having half a clue about some of the plans that have been in process for years to get America and Australia’s relationship to the point it is today… arr, stuffit, as the Yanks would say, call a spade a spade and spell it out. We just got Occupied! Maybe Cheney and Co wrote the script that Bush and Howard spoke from, but now Obama and Gillard reciting the lines I start to wonder again where the words these puppet-monarchs spruik truly originate… It would seem that the schemes of the Project For A New American Century are alive and well.”
