“We Do Not Seek War,” Says President Who Just Started A War

Public Policy

President Trump has been steadfastly assuring the world that the United States government does not wish to start the war it has already started by assassinating Iran’s top general.

“We are a peace-loving nation and my administration remains firmly committed to establishing peace and harmony among the nations in the world,” Trump said in a speech at his luxury Mar-a-Lago getaway on Friday. “We do not seek war, we do not seek nation-building, we do not seek regime change, but as president I will never hesitate to defend the safety of the American people.”

“We took action last night to stop a war. We did not take action to start a war,” the president added.

To be clear, in no way is any part of this a thing. Assassinating a nation’s most senior military official, and then claiming that you do not wish to start a war with that nation, is not a thing.

America is at war with Iran currently. What that war will end up looking like is anyone’s guess right now, but there is no question that a war has been initiated. If any nation had assassinated a top US general via airstrike and then openly admitted to it, the US would immediately be at war with that nation. Without question. An extreme military retaliation would be in the works within minutes of the announcement, and the entire political/media class would fully support that retaliation in whatever form it took.

This may come as a surprise to some Americans, but that same principle holds true for other nations as well.

“His departure to God does not end his path or his mission, but a forceful revenge awaits the criminals who have his blood and the blood of the other martyrs last night on their hands,” Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in a statement on Friday.

And, I mean, of course. Of course “forceful revenge” from Iran is in the mail. Only by the most bizarre American exceptionalist mental contortions could this not be blindingly obvious. The question isn’t if Iran will retaliate with extreme force, but when and where. Nobody with any functioning matter between their ears would expect anything else.

And of course the US government is now spouting completely unsubstantiated claims about General Qassem Soleimani, and of course the mass media are uncritically repeating those claims as fact, and of course the propagandized masses are regurgitating what their perception management screens have told them to believe. Trump administration officials are claiming without any evidence at all that Soleimani was plotting “imminent attacks on American diplomats and military personnel”, even going so far as trying to marry him to the 9/11 attacks and a host of other unsubstantiated excuses.

Anyone who believes any of this is a brainwashed imbecile. Because of the US government’s extensive history of lying to manufacture support for preexisting military agendas, the only sane response to unsubstantiated US government claims about targeted nations is absolute skepticism. That skepticism should remain in place until mountains of independently verifiable proof of the claims made has been provided. This is the only acceptable level of evidence that critical thinking permits in a post-Iraq invasion world.

This should be extremely obvious to everyone. The fact that it isn’t is the result of generations of increasingly sophisticated propaganda manipulating the way people think about war, what it is, and how it works. My social media notifications are currently flooded with Trump supporters assuring me that Soleimani was a “bad guy” and Trump is therefore a “good guy”, and that assassinating the top military official of a sovereign nation is a perfectly sane and acceptable thing for a government to do.

Don’t do this. Don’t advance war propaganda narratives for the US government.

Those who spread war propaganda are participating in that war just as much as those who actually go and fight in it, only they’re playing a far safer, far more cowardly, and far more dishonest role. A man who flies to Iran and murders Iranians with firearms is at least engaging in the war in a way that he will have to grapple with existentially for the rest of his life. A man who regurgitates Fox News propaganda on Twitter will then eat a pizza, have a wank, go to bed and sleep like a baby. But they both facilitated mass murder based on lies and American supremacist imperialism.

The war that Trump has started must be opposed forcefully and aggressively. Do everything you can to wake people up to what’s going on. This could get very, very ugly.

I’m going to keep following this important story and publishing regular updates as it unfolds. I encourage everyone else to pay close attention to it as well. Trump’s war with Iran should be front and center for everyone who cares about humanity.

    “Ron Paul: US Wants To “Own Iran” Like It Did When The Shah Was In Power”
    https://tinyurl.com/qtqbt8d zero hedge

    “President Donald Trump is offering plenty of justifications for the US government’s recent military actions against Iran, including that the actions were taken to prevent the deaths of Americans and to prevent a war. Not so, says former US House of Representatives member and presidential candidate Ron Paul in a Wednesday interview with host Ernest Hancock at Declare Your Independence.”

    “Incessant US attacks on Iran from sanctions to the killing last week of Iran General Qassim Suleimani, says Paul, are a consequence of a different policy that the US has had “for a long time” and that is endorsed by both the Republican Party and the Democratic Party, as well as the deep state.”

    “We want to own Iran like we owned it when we had the Shah in power, and nobody’s going to be happy until that happens.”

    As a Brit I couldn’t wait for the opportunity to get integrated (as in: swallowed) with this:

    Ah well, they may have a tint, but at least they speak English!

    (But then again, who doesn’t these days)

    Quite a breakthrough! Richard Spencer, the most presentable white nationalist in the world, is so presentable that he was invited by officially race blind Alex Jones.

    Jones, for whom the culmination of pleasure is a black guy in a “1776-t-shirt”, jumped over his own shadow and invited golden boy Richard Spencer:

    (Have yet to watch it).

    Richard Spencer is doing the bidding of PBM in America for us:

    Watch the first 15 seconds only, after all you don’t want to watch to a hate group that calls itself “The Young Turks”, the name of the kosher-lead group that was responsible for the Armenian genocide:

    BBC news now: yet another Rotherham scandal. Up to 100 muslim scum bags misused tens of white girls, the authorities knew, yet looked the other way and they didn’t had the spine to intervene, racism-thingy.

    The people who are responsible for this multicult nightmare should face a Sonderbehandlung in an industrial-strength, heavy duty 5 star wellness resort, deep into Eastern Poland.

    Watched the interview Spencer-Jones this morning. Spencer performed fantastic. Runs circles around Jones, not that that’s a high quality standard. But it is obvious that Jones related to Spencer and Jones will continue to invite Spencer.

    Jones: “…at least Spencer doesn’t talk about jews all the time, like David Duke does”.lol

    It is difficult to overstate the significance of this development. Whatever you may think of Jones (and I personally cringe when he rambles about history, Natzis and Hitler again), Jones is still the #1 alt-media outlet that played a decisive part in getting Trump elected. And could play the same role again later this year. The so-called color-blind conservative vote, that backs Trump, who according to himself “has not a racist bone in his body”, now prudently begins to team up with white nationalists, albeit only with the smartest, most diplomatic, most presentable one, Richard Spencer.

    Master performance of Richard Spencer yesterday, major victory!
