US NOW HAS OVER 1,400 FOREIGN MILITARY BASES SPREAD OVER 120 COUNTRIES

In an interview about his new book detailing cables published by Wikileaks, Julian Assange makes the following key points:

Cables show current US policy on Syria is essentially an extension of the policy of the W. Bush regime, which made plans in 2006, five years before the Syrian revolt, to overthrow the government. The US planned to instigate a revolt, through methods including spreading propaganda to foster sectarianism, as the US did in Iraq. US planned to instill “paranoia” in the Syrian government to “push it to overreact” at any sign of a coup attempt. Hence, the violence that occurred in 2011 was, from the US perspective, an optimal result and big step towards regime change, still being sought, with the result being hundreds of thousands dead and millions of refugees. (Syria is one of the seven countries the Bush regime planned to “take out“, according to a high-ranking inside source. Readers should further note that the US and UK have been trying to conquer and install a puppet regime in Syria since at least 1948.)
The interviewer points out that the book details “genocidal US policy right around the world, from Latin America to Asia” and asks how “all the torture and killing” complements US commercial interests (the propaganda term being “the free market”). Assange says the cables document the US government acting as sales rep and to “secure advantageous deals and structures” for the “largest US companies”, such as Boeing and Monsanto. The “modern empire” used for these tasks consists of “more than 1,400 US military bases in over 120 countries”. The interests being represented are not those of the average US citizen, but companies that can get close enough to the government (accomplished via bribery) to be influential. (Readers will remember this dynamic is documented by meticulous professional study.)
Ongoing US policy is to use “unconventional warfare”, meaning the use of “surrogate forces”, proxies, to overthrow governments. The US employs all of its arms and agencies in these pursuits, from military to intelligence to commercial to financial, including agencies such as the IMF and USAID, pushing them in tandem against the target country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a 66 year old woman, I weep to see what this government has become; a rapacious nation, hell-bent on making sure as much destruction as humanly possible happens to the rest of the world to achieve national regimes to our liking, and making sure that the spoils of such wars fall into the hands of major corporations, which support the politicians, overtly and covertly.

And those people, desperately trapped by US-generated wars of aggression, who can never go home again?!? To this government, they have absolutely no humanity whatsoever, and are irrelevant; that is why they are labeled as "collateral damage", in order for those in power not to feel one shred of guilt because of what has been done to these people.

American corporations have become the voracious whores, and the US government, their indulgent madam, making sure that they get the lion's share of profits.

This is a government waging wars against its own citizens,at every level, in terms of the economy, health, surveillance, and eviscerating what little protections are still available through the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

And internationally, when the issues of democracy and human rights "get in the way of doing business" for the US, they are summarily dismissed; despots are supported, and torture is condoned.

Look at what is going on in Yemen and Bahrain, and try to tell me, with a straight face, that this is not so.

Were I in a position to be able to compose a long-form work right now, I am very certain that it would be titled as follows: The United States; a Requiem for a Country I used to know."
