Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
Oh lord yeah!
Who would have thought when the Vietnam war ended in 1975 that nearly 40 years later this song by Black Sabbath would still be tragically relevant. The illegal and immoral invasion of the sovereign nation of Libya continues to ramp up and has already cost $664M as of mid-May.
As noted by Gerald Celente and many others, economic depressions are often accompanied by increased warmongering. The reasons could range from distracting the populace to full employment for defense contractors, but the risk is real that an escalating number of conflicts will soon be ignited.
The Libyan issue threatened to inspire Congress to develop an unusual amount of backbone, and Speaker John Bonehead had to hurriedly fend off rebellion in the ranks. As Pat Buchanan reported, “Last week, House Speaker John Boehner had to scramble to cobble up a substitute resolution to prevent half his GOP caucus from joining with Democrats to denounce President Obama’s war in Libya as unconstitutional and to demand a total U.S. pullout in 15 days.”
Of course intervention by congress would be a welcome development, but the danger is that the PTB would up the ante and arrange another false-flag terrorist event to corral the populace into a state of fear. They don't take kindly to increased levels of individual awareness, so the next few years of shifts and ascension will likely be a rocky road.
It's frightening to realize that the seat of power has shifted out of the hands of elected officials and into a shadowy "corptocracy" that answers to no one (except possibly boards of directors and shareholders). This will be illustrated in startling clarity if and when voters try to change the course of governmental policies by exercising pressure on elected representatives.
My description of "corptocracy" probably rates as conspiracy theory by the mainstream, but conspiracies by corporate powers are real and laws have been passed to combat them (i.e. antitrust legislation). Conspiracy theorists presumably allege that certain government officials in the white house basement planned the 9/11 attack or even the JFK assassination, but more likely these events are incited and perpetrated by organizations outside of government. Individuals within the government may be involved, but not as part of official policy. Likewise no monolithic governmental agency would likely be controlling the "UFO coverup"; there appears to be a dark and shadowy power center involved that transcends governments and even corporations. The world of Black Ops is mysterious indeed, but not likely under the aegis of the CIA director. Intel agencies are probably involved with Black Ops but to an unknown degree.
I seriously doubt that the Libyan operation was decided upon by Obama or the Joint
Chiefs. If congress forces his hands with the war powers act, it will be embarrassing for him because he must defend the policies that are dictated to him as if they were his own. If that happens, look for new events to quickly overshadow the situation, as I have described above.
