Today I would like to talk about the current situation in America. Why having one of the most powerful economies in the world, most of us still live in poverty? I am not going to quote politicians or experts. This article is the reflection of my thoughts and nothing more.
First of all, let me tell some words about myself: I am 55 years old, married, have 3 kids. For the last 8 years I’ve been working in a contractor company for the CIA. Moreover, I participated in several joint projects.
Without going into details of this collaboration, I can state that I’ve understood the main principles and goals of this agency. And the only thing I regret is that I understand it only now. My article is for young people who will defend the United States of America in future.
Generally speaking, the leadership of the CIA is far from patriotism and love for the homeland. This is, rather, a role… or an image which is important for propaganda spreading. In fact, everything they do, they do it for the profit. And money laundering schemes will surely rise beyond any movies.
Nevertheless, sometimes we are shown the truth.
In particular, I was impressed by the Oliver Stone-directed “Snowden” starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. In my opinion this is pivotal part of the film. U.S. intelligence officer played by Nicolas Cage was told to search terrorists on the internet. In order to search bad guys quickly, he created $3-million software that could do it properly. You may think this is too expensive for software. People in NSA thought the same way so they closed the program. However, later the other guys created “unique equipment” which in fact was an incomplete copy of Nicolas’ actor software. And it was $4 BILLION.
The analogy of this fragment with the reality struck me deeply. Scrolling through the memory of all the projects I was involved, I finally concluded that our leadership is concentrated on money-laundering. And I am sure this happens not only in the CIA, but all Departments and law enforcement agencies. The main purpose of intelligence is to make the military-industrial complex happy.
But in order to start the most powerful military machine in the world, you need to create a precedent. I am sure you will recall a couple examples of when guys in the White House, under dubious pretexts, have been unleashing wars in other countries.
Recently, the U.S. President Donald Trump signed the $716 billion National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law.
Now think about how big this sum is! For comparison, in 2018 Russia spent about $46 billion on its military-industrial complex, and in some aspects, the manufacturability of the Russian electronic warfare technologies is superior to ours. China this year spent $175 billion on defense.
How media outlets involved in money-laundering
I guess it is no secret that the mainstream media, such as the New York Times, actively cooperate with special services and are a sort of mouthpiece of national propaganda.
An excellent example of mass propaganda we could watch during the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. The media outlets shouted about the nuclear threat from North Korea and the arrogance of its young leader. In turn, the United States and its allies could easily defend the Olympics and prevent provocations from Pyongyang. But that did not happen. Moreover, the level of economic and technological development of the DPRK has lagged behind the United States by several decades. Let’s face it – America needs to escalate the situation.
In case of the “Russian nuclear threat,” things are much more absurd! According to officials, Russia allegedly threatens Europe with nuclear weapons, placing its missile systems on its own (!!!) territory! Do you realize how silly these accusations sound? If we look at the map with the location of the missiles of the United States and Russia, we will see that Moscow does not have a single base with such weapons abroad. What kind of threat are we talking about? Nevertheless, the media have inspired the whole world the threat is real, although in fact, Russia’s actions are a retaliatory measure for America’s deployment of its missiles and numerous military bases along its borders.
As we see, neither in the first nor in the second case there were no real threat.
Our leadership creates precedents and provocations, creates new types of weapons for the taxpayers’ money and, among other things, and has a great profit. But the population continues to believe in patriotism, sending sons and daughters to the alleged “war for freedom”. As a result, we have more than two million young veterans who are absolutely unnecessary to this state and American society itself.
We must understand that with great power comes great responsibility. However, there is still hope that one day, there will be no businessmen in the big chairs, but patriots, whose main objectives will be not filling their wallets, but protecting the weak and developing world peace.
