Eric Zuesse – Why America Needs to Be Defeated

Why America Needs To be Defeated

According to the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, the world is closer now to World War Three, a nuclear war between the U.S. and Russia and/or China, than it ever was, even during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis.

In the links in the analysis here is documented that solely the U.S. and its allies are responsible for this: Russia and China are being forced by them into this potentially catastrophic conflict, which Russia and China do not want and did nothing to produce (other than to respond by necessary defensive actions on their part, to the aggressive actions by the U.S. and its allies).

The U.S. Government states two top priorities in its National Security Strategy: defeating both Russia and China. It claims to represent “democracy” against “autocracy” though all scientific empirical analyses that have been done are in agreement that America itself, the U.S. Government, is no democracy, but instead an aristocracy, which represents only its wealthiest ten-thousandth (the top 1% of the top 1%), and especially its wealthiest 400, its wealthiest billionaires, who are in actual control over this nation of 332 million people. The U.S. National Security Strategy ignores this now proven fact (America’s being a dictatorship), and boldly asserts that “The United States has everything we need to win the competition for the 21st century. We emerge stronger from every crisis. There is nothing beyond our capacity. We can do this — for our future and for the world.” The National Security Strategy is not only power-worshipping but Messianic: it claims to speak “for the world,” and to represent the world against what it identifies as its and the world’s enemies: “Autocrats are working overtime to undermine democracy and export a model of governance marked by repression at home and coercion abroad.” It says this though it’s an “autocracy” whose “auto” that is its “cracy” or ruler, is its fewer-than-a-thousand billionaires — not an individual, but the aristocracy, the top wealth-class. America is a dictatorship by those people, but claims to speak for and represent the entire world. Never has a more hypocritical Government existed. Only fools believe it any longer.

No enemy-nation threatens America. Its Government lies to claim otherwise. If America were not determined to conquer Russia, and if it were not determined to conquer China, then there would be no enemy of America, because neither Russia nor China is or has been hostile to — much less aiming to conquer — America. All of the aggression is actually by the U.S. Government, against what its billionaires want it to conquer next. Russia invaded Ukraine on 24 February 2022 purely in self-defense to prevent U.S. missiles being placed in Ukraine only 300 miles away from Moscow, because of America’s continuing determination to place its missiles there five minutes missile-flight-time to blitz-nuking Russia’s central command — the U.S. goal that poses an existential threat to all Russians. And China has never committed or even threatened to commit aggression against America; and, as regards Taiwan, that is a province of China — and even the U.S. Government itself formally committed itself to saying so in 1972 but now increasingly wants Taiwan to break away from China and to become yet another U.S. ‘protectorate’. This regime’s appetite is unlimited.

Those billionaires use their newsmedia in order to deceive their public into hating ‘the enemy’. A typical example is the December 2017 issue of one of America’s Democratic Party magazines, The New Republic (TNR). On its front cover was a scary image of Vladimir Putin’s face, overlaid by the blaring headline “HOW TO ATTACK A DEMOCRACY”. Inside was the feature-article, headlined “Weaken From Within”, by a journalist from Switzerland and another from Germany, and it “was adapted from a story originally published in Das Magazin, Switzerland” and those same two journalists had earlier published a feature-article at the Democratic Party’s vice dot com ‘news’ site, “The Data That Turned the World Upside Down”, about “How Cambridge Analytica used your Facebook data to help the Donald Trump campaign in the 2016 election.” The TNR article opened by saying: “Moscow has been honing an information age art of war — through fake news, disinformation, leaks, and trolling — for more than a decade. How can free societies protect themselves?” Then came this:

After the Mueller investigation’s first round of indictments on Monday, there is still much to learn about the true extent of Russia’s influence on the 2016 election and how to prevent similar actions in the future. With growing knowledge of how Russia used Facebook ads to deliver targeted messaging to specific demographics, the true depth of their cyber capabilities is still unknown. To better understand what cyber warfare may look like and its crippling impact, an attack from 2007 provides a look at what the Russians may be capable of and why it’s time to prepare.

The Democratic billionaires were aiming to help Biden defeat Trump and to prioritize conquering Russia before conquering China, just as the Republican billionaires were aiming to help Trump defeat Biden and to prioritize conquering China before conquering Russia; but, otherwise, the two Parties’ foreign policies were similar and both are called “neoconservative” or pro-expanding-the-U.S.-empire. Both sides of America’s aristocracy demand this. No billionaires oppose it.

So: all of the aggression is unanimous on the U.S. side; none of it exists from either Russia’s or China’s side. For America, satisfying its billionaires is the objective; but, for both Russia and China, surviving as a sovereign nation — instead of as being yet another vassal-nation in the U.S. empire — is the objective. The contest here is between aggression on America’s side, versus survival on the side of each of America’s two main billionaire-targeted ‘enemies’. To equate the pro-and-anti-U.S. sides in such a war is to equate the victimizer and the victim; it is to ignore the distinction between the aggressor and the defender in a war. It is like equating a rapist and a rape-victim. However, under international law, the aggressor is a war-criminal, and the defender isn’t. (For this reason, the U.S. is trying to replace the existing laws-based international order by “the international rules-based international order,” in which the U.S. Government will dictate the “rules.”)

Right now, most Governments do things that are commonly said to be evil when perpetrated by an ‘enemy’ country but which are considered to be okay when one’s own Government does it. For example, the U.S. invaded Iraq in 2003 on the basis of purely lies (for which no one was held to account, and which lies were themselves subsequently lied-about by saying they had been only ‘intelligence failures’ though they weren’t at all that).

America’s voters don’t want to acknowledge that they were fooled, by lying Presidents in both Parties, and by their stenographic ‘free press’ transmitting Governmental lies — they were thus deceived into invading and destroying Iraq in 2003, and Libya in 2011-, and Syria in 2011-. U.S. is globally the most frequently mentioned nation as being “the greatest threat to peace in the world today.” The biggest threat to peace isn’t Iran, and isn’t Russia, and isn’t China, and isn’t Venezuela, but it is, in fact, their actually aggressive enemy, the United States of America, which wants to dictate to them all — this dictatorship demands to impose its ‘democracy’ throughout the world, as it has tried to do in hundreds of coups and invasions. It destroyed Iran’s democracy in 1953. It destroyed Guatemala’s democracy in 1954. It destroyed Chile’s democracy in 1973. And there are many other such instances, less well-known — including many even after the so-called ‘ideological’ Cold War ended in 1991. There have been at least 40 U.S. coups that are known, and all of them were after WW II. William Blum listed 60 U.S. coups, all after WW II, but even that list is incomplete and fails to include the first, which was in 1948 (Thailand), just a year after President Truman started the CIA. Thirteen of those 60 U.S. coups occurred after the Soviet Union ended in 1991. The coups continued, just like NATO did. But the American people don’t want to know, and don’t even care, about the ugliness of the Government that they allegedly ‘elect’ (but really do not — and they don’t want to know that, either). Americans aren’t physical slaves, but mental slaves — they don’t even want to know the reality, of the regime that rules us.

As A.B. Abrams’s 2021 World War in Syria: Global Conflict on Middle Eastern Battlefields stated in its Chapter 1, regarding what was actually an obsession by the U.S. regime to take control over Syria as soon as the French regime lost it in the wake of WW II, “The first [coup in Syria, the CIA’s actually second coup, the one in Thailand in 1948 having been its first-ever coup] was engineered by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) against the government of President Shukri Al Quwatli.11 The [Al Quwatli] administration was targeted primarily due to its lack of enthusiasm for a major American project, the Trans-Arabian Pipeline, which was intended to transport Saudi Arabian oil to Europe through Syrian territory. Quwatli’s replacement, a general with a ’strong pro-French orientation’ named Husni Al Zaim, ran what Pentagon cables described as an ‘army supported dictatorship’ with a ’strong anti-Soviet attitude.’12 His government approved the pipeline in its first week in power, but was overthrown five months later by colonel Sami Al Hinnawi whose short-lived administration was itself toppled by another colonel, Adib Shishakli, in December [1949]. Shishakli’s pro-Western government lasted four years before a coup deposed it and restored national elections. Al Quwatli was then re-elected in 1955, and his administration distanced itself from the West as a result of the CIA’s involvement in the original March 1949 coup.” This bit of history alone is sufficient to show that at the start of the CIA by U.S. President Truman in 1947, Truman’s Government was fixated upon robbing the peoples of other countries — which it would label as being ‘communist’ nations though they were not and were ONLY trying to establish democracy, which the U.S. regime would NOT allow — in order to enrich its own and allied billionaires such as the Saudi royal family, and, of course, the U.S.-and-European billionaires who would ALSO get a cut into the marketing and distribution of the Saud family’s oil sales. Clearly, therefore, that bit of history constitutes virtually a proof that as soon as FDR died and WW II was over, Truman turned the U.S. Government into the U.S. regime, a hegemonic imperialistic-capitalist, or fascist, dictatorship by America’s super-rich as now constituting America’s aristocracy controlling the entire then-nascent growing U.S. empire. For example: the U.S. regime’s invasion of Iraq in 2003 was no mere fluke or ‘intelligence error’ (such as the billionaires’ media portray it) but instead part of the entire post-FDR U.S. global dictatorship, which constantly lies through its teeth in order to further enrich its insatiably grasping billionaires and their foreign business-partners, all being an international-gangland operation that they call ‘democracy’.

Any residual question of whether America was honest prior to the Soviet Union’s 1991 termination, to have claimed that defeating Soviet communism had been its objective, was secretly answered on 24 February 1990 when U.S. President G.H.W. Bush privately started to inform America’s NATO ‘allies’ (actually vassal-nations) that though communism and the Soviet Union and its Warsaw Pact military alliance all would soon end, the Cold war on America’s side will continue until Russia itself will be conquered. That proved what America’s billionaires are united in demanding: it wasn’t ‘the end of communism’; it was actually global hegemony — and they still unanimously do demand it.

In addition to the U.S. regime’s many coups or “regime-change” operations, there have been a great many outright U.S. military invasions: The U.S. Congressional Research Service’s list of U.S. invasions (including increases in existing invasions) lists and briefly describes 297 such invasions after WW II (i.e., during 1945-2022, a 77-year period), and is titled “Instances of Use of United States Armed Forces Abroad, 1798-2022”. That 297 U.S. invasions in the past 77 years is more than all of the instances put together during 1798-1945 — a 147-year period. And none of those 297 invasions was defensive. 244 of the 297 occurred after the Soviet Union ended in 1991 and prior to Russia’s invading Ukraine in 2022. All of the 297 were unConstitutional. Most of them were purely aggressions (some in order to help a foreign tyrant suppress his own population). After the Soviet Union ended, the U.S. regime just went wild, internationally. America’s Founders had insisted there be no “standing army” in this nation. Until Truman established the ‘Defense’ Department and CIA in 1947, there wasn’t any. That created America’s military-industrial complex, which now controls the country, on behalf of U.S. billionaires.

The U.S. now has 900 military bases in foreign countries around the world, in addition to the 749 U.S. domestic military bases. The U.S. now is spending approximately half of the entire world’s military costs.

What will the outcome of this be? It could be global nuclear annihilation in WW III. Or, it could be the defeat of the U.S. regime, step-by-step, such as might be described in this example of it, from Julian Macfarlane. For the U.S empire, the two options are: either to fade away, or else to destroy the entire planet in its attempt to continue increasing its empire.

America is the aggressor worldwide (because Harry Truman set it onto that path, on 25 July 1945). It must now be defeated. It lies constantly to pretend to be the world’s savior-nation, but nobody with any intelligence believes any of that any longer: the evilness of the (Trumanite) U.S. Government is increasingly clear to people throughout the world — including right here: I am an American who reveres America’s great Founders who wrote the U.S. Constitution, and who reveres the Constitution that they wrote and that has been improved subsequently by Amendments. Today’s U.S. Government (which Truman established) constantly and routinely violates the U.S. Constitution, and lies to deny that it is doing so. It lies in practically everything. No patriotic intelligent American likes or respects this Government, or either of its two billionaire-controlled Parties: it is our enemy. And it is the world’s enemy. It therefore must be defeated. It must be defeated before it brings the world even closer to — and maybe into — a world-annihilating nuclear WWIII. And it must be defeated in order to halt increasing imposition upon the world, of injustice, by the world’s most powerful country — this voracious global hegemon, at the top of which stand America’s billionaires.

The war that America now is waging is against the entire world (including even against some of its own vassal-nations or ‘allies’). The entire world ought to unite in order to defeat it. Any U.S.-‘allied’ Government is traitorous against its own public. Above all else now, the world needs democracy among nations, even more than democracy within nations. The U.S. Government now represents, instead, dictatorship among nations, in the interests of its own dictators, who are its own billionaires. It is dictatorship not only nationally, but also internationally. Who, really, wants that? Does anybody, except they and their millions of hired agents?

Investigative historian Eric Zuesse’s new book, AMERICA’S EMPIRE OF EVIL: Hitler’s Posthumous Victory, and Why the Social Sciences Need to Change, is about how America took over the world after World War II in order to enslave it to U.S.-and-allied billionaires. Their cartels extract the world’s wealth by control of not only their ‘news’ media but the social ‘sciences’ — duping the public.
