Empires and Coercion Through Fear

“This is how the international community should work in the 21st century — more nations bearing the responsibility and costs of meeting global challenges, indeed, it is the very purpose of this United Nations. So every nation represented here today can take pride in the innocent lives we saved and in helping Libyans reclaim their country. It was the right thing to do.”

History, when it is written is usually trumpeted by the victors.  This is probably why today, the accepted historians remember Rome's "greatness" when much of the actual story is one of pain, oppression, corruption, and decadence.  "Greatness" is equated with longevity, which is only made possible by tyrannical measures meant to fear and intimidate dissenters of the state into complicity.  Longevity is not achieved without an ample amount of cruelty; unflinching terror by which to control the masses as the circle of corruption is born, dies, and is reborn again. 

Kirk Douglas in the film Spartacus
During the time of Spartacus' revolt (historians peg this time around 74 B.C.), as he was marching toward the Alps with 120,000 escaped slaves, faith in government had reached a new low.  Fear of social upheaval swept through Italy, for no master wished to be murdered by his slaves.  The Roman general/politician Crassus eventually set out to defeat the rebellious ex-gladiators.  Aided by Pompey's legions returning from Spain, Spartacus' army was finally defeated.  The 6,000 slaves who were captured alive were crucified on the Via Appia between Capua and Rome, a rotten reminder to those who try to defy Roman will.

“Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.”

-  Marcus Tullius Cicero (Historian, 106 B. C.- 43 B.C.) 

The maintenance of empire is no different today. 

The U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, were conducted in similar fashion.  The objective was not to defend one's own country from invasion or retribution for a past wrong.  All those reasons were lies.

22 year-old taxi driver Dilawar
These wars were a social experiment in world fascism.  And the techniques used were barbarous.  Most people think crucifixions were a sadistic form of death used only during ancient times.  The U.S. government, however, anxious to consolidate the whole world into a single economic regime, tortured and killed to teach them (Arabs) "to always fear doing anything but what the U.S wants."

Such is the story of Dilawar, the 22-year-old taxi driver who was picked up in Afghanistan and tortured to death.  Dilawar died after being tortured for 4 days, hanging by his arms in chains as his feet barely touched the floor.  He had been kneed in the thigh so many times, had he lived, his legs would have had to be amputated. 

No senior official has had to answer for the opaque rules of engagement and none will, if the status quo stands.  There was a recent story that Obama wanted to prosecute the crimes of torture, but if he had, there would have been a revolt in the secret spy world.  This is probably misinformation since everything Obama does is to further the one-world agenda.  Why would he and his money-printing masters then be building a $100 million prison in Afghanistan while people in America are homeless and starving?  For the tyrants and their fat, lazy, ignorant, fearful, bootlicking slaves, there is still "work" to be done on the homefront.  Because economic conditions are so poor, there are more people in America today fed up, changing their lifestyle, and not "doing anything but what the U.S. wants."  These malcontents have become the focus of the next stage in the terror war, Americans who who hope for freedom in a land taken over by economic terrorists. 

“They have plundered the world, stripping naked the land in their hunger… they are driven by greed, if their enemy be rich; by ambition, if poor… They ravage, they slaughter, they seize by false pretenses, and all of this they hail as the construction of empire. And when in their wake nothing remains but a desert, they call that peace.”

-Tacitus, from the Agricola/ the Germanica

Many Americans, consumed with their everyday lives; raising children, working multiple jobs just to eke by, are largely unaware of the danger they are about to be facing.  The danger will not only come from the economic terrorists stealing their hard-earned retirement nest-eggs.  The danger will come also from the law enforcement community that has been being militarized since 2001. 

Proof of the preparation continues today in the Denver area as they will undergo a massive terror drill, "Operation Mountain Guardian," involving over 100 government agencies.  But don't be alarmed, terrorists still want to attack a Rocky Mountain metropolis even as the country's economy slides down a steep slip-and-slide of excrement.

Yesterday, the leader of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, as "dignitaries" walked out because they cannot argue with the truth, explained the terror let loose on the world by the British Empire in collusion with the U.S. military/police state.
