2016 UNDERWAY

"The Plan is for the United States to rule the world. The overt theme is unilateralism, but it is ultimately a story of domination. It calls for the United States to maintain its overwhelming superiority and prevent new rivals from rising up to challenge it on the world stage. It calls for dominion over friends and enemies alike. It says not that the United States must be more powerful, or most powerful, but that it must be absolutely powerful."
Vice-President Dick Cheney - West Point lecture, June 2002

A Great Gift

TWO BIRDS: A DIALOGUE
Autumn 1965 --to the tune of Nien Nu Chiao

The roc wings fanwise,
Soaring ninety thousand li
And rousing a raging cyclone.
The blue sky on his back, he looks down
To survey Man's world with its towns and cities.
Gunfire licks the heavens,
Shells pit the earth.
A sparrow in his bush is scared stiff..
"This is one hell of a mess!
O I want to flit and fly away."
"Where, may I ask?"
The sparrow replies,

REPLY TO COMRADE KUO MO-JO
--to the tune of Man Chiang Hung
January 9, 1963

On this tiny globe
A few flies dash themselves against the wall,
Humming without cease,
Sometimes shrilling,
Sometimes moaning.
Ants on the locust tree assume a great-nation swagger
And mayflies lightly plot to topple the giant tree.
The west wind scatters leaves over Changan,
And the arrows are flying, twanging.
So many deeds cry out to be done,
And always urgently;
The world rolls on,
Time presses.
Ten thousand years are too long,
Seize the day, seize the hour!
The Four Seas are rising, clouds and waters raging,
The Five Continents are rocking, wind and thunder roaring.
Our force is irresistible,
Away with all pests!

Poems | Selected Works of Mao Tse-tung

革命战争是群众的战争,只有动员群众才能进行战争,只有依靠群众才能进行战争。
The revolutionary war is a war of the masses; it can be waged only by mobilizing the masses and relying on them.
Be Concerned with the Well-Being of the Masses, Pay Attention to Methods of Work, chapter8, (January 27, 1934), Selected Works, Vol. I. p. 147.

A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery. It cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.

...Bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki
...why did the US unleash this untold death and destruction when Japan clearly wanted to surrender? Soviet Union’s Joseph Stalin, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and United States President Harry S. Truman all knew the Emperor of Japan had accepted the terms of an unconditional surrender 19 days before the first atomic bomb was dropped. Truman knew the Japanese wanted to surrender, but he was not going to allow the Soviet Union to be the peace broker and gain the upper hand...From Truman’s handwritten diary entry on July 18,1945, “Discussed Manhattan (it is a success). Decided to tell Stalin about it. Stalin had told P.M. (Churchill) of telegram from Jap emperor asking for peace…” ... Another diary entry this from an assistant to Secretary of State James F. Byrnes by Walter Brown, the entry from August 3rd, 1945... that Byrnes, Admiral William D. Leahy and President Truman, “agrred [sic] Japas [sic] looking for peace. President afraid they will sue for peace through Russia instead of some country like Sweden.”

OLD STORY PRE- HIGH TECH STRATEGIC COMMUNICATIONS / PUBLIC DIPLOMACY “NEWS NARRATIVES”

"If the people are not convinced (that the Free World is in mortal danger) it would be impossible for Congress to vote the vast sums now being spent to avert danger. With the support of public opinion, as marshalled by the press, we are off to a good start. It is our Job - yours and mine -- to keep our people convinced that the only way to keep disaster away from our shores is to build up America's might."
Charles Wilson, Chairman of the Board of General Electric, Truman appointee to head Office of Defence Mobilization, speech to the Newspaper Publishers Association, 1950

"Whoever controls the media, controls the peoples' minds. There is no such thing in America as an independent press, unless it is in the country towns. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares writes his honest opinions, and if you did you know beforehand that it would never appear in print... The business of the New York journalist is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of Mammon...for his daily bread. You know this and I know it, and what folly is this to be toasting an "Independent Press."
We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping-jacks; they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes."

Post-Paris: WW3, ISIS and the US World Order

Digest commentary:
Midnight brings the biggest world names in every field to Charlie Rose’s table weeknights. His demeanor and first words announce US ‘friend or enemy’. Since Paris 2, many guests have been his best american military, diplomacy, intelligence, technology expert friends, all singing the same basic song from their expert vantage point, all sounding like the US post-911 Global Terror War began 14 days, not 14 years ago. And as if, in 2 weeks the entire geopolitical strategy “community” figured out that the problem and the solution to the failed GWOT are the same:
In keeping with its in-a-nutshell analysis, the digest sums up the state’s essential information war strategic communications/public diplomacy [SC/PD] conclusions to be heard 24/7 worldwide, gratuitously amplified with ever-evolving ‘narratives’

PROBLEM: US leadership hasn’t been strong enough. The world became fragmented, divided, disordered. ISIS filled the void. We’re seeing how even ‘bad authoritarian’ order is better than no order. Russia’s intervention in Syria exacerbated problems by undermining the US strategy that Obama said it didn’t have, by bombing US/west-supported anti-Assad government ‘moderate rebels’ which don’t exist. Please see the digest to fill in the missing desperate GWOT years - which in fact is WW3 to salvage the collapsing US post-WW2 global dictatorship.

SOLUTION: ISIS terror is the basis for creating a strong US-led international coalition uniting all countries despite competing interests, policies and cultures because everyone wants to avoid a ‘major war’, including Russia, China and Iran.

Part 1 bears serious study: following a succinct summary of the imperialist crisis from a major think-tank, the official US framework for understanding the post WW2 era and WW3, by whatever name. Again, please find a dozen crucial years of information on the burbank website, or in emails if you’re an email subscriber.

Pentagon's Plan: 'Prevent the Re-Emergence of a New Rival' (excerpts)
NYT March 8, 1992 http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9E0CE1D7173AF93BA35750C0A...
Following are excerpts from the Pentagon's Feb. 18 draft of the Defense Planning Guidance for the Fiscal Years 1994-1999: This Defense Planning guidance addresses the fundamentally new situation which has been created by the collapse of the Soviet Union, the disintegration of the internal as well as the external empire, and the discrediting of Communism as an ideology with global pretensions and influence. The new international environment has also been shaped by the victory of the United States and its coalition allies over Iraqi aggression -- the first post-cold-war conflict and a defining event in U.S. global leadership. In addition to these two victories, there has been a less visible one, the integration of Germany and Japan into a U.S.-led system of collective security and the creation of a democratic "zone of peace."

Digest commentary: the strategic ‘big lie’
The state’s top not-so-secret is that North America’s genocidal white supremacist ‘manifest destiny’, long since globalized imperialism, is based on CLASS WAR.

U.S. Spies Say Intercepted Calls Prove Syrian Army Used Nerve Gas
8/27 http://thecable.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2013/08/27/exclusive_us_spies_sa...
...In the days after the attacks, there was a great deal of public discussion about which side in Syria's horrific civil war actually launched the strike. Allies of the Assad regime, like Iran and Russia, pointed the finger at the opposition. The intercepted communications told a different story -- one in which the Syrian government was clearly to blame...US intelligence analysts are certain chemical weapons were used on Aug. 21 - the captured phone calls, combined with local doctors' accounts and video documentation - are considered proof positive. That is why the U.S. government, from the president on down, has been unequivocal in its declarations that the Syrian military gassed thousands of civilians in the East Ghouta region. ...ongoing debate within the Obama administration about whether to strike Assad immediately - or whether to allow UN inspectors to try and collect proof before the bombing begins. Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney called that team's work "redundant ... because it is clearly established already that chemical weapons have been used on a significant scale."...there were questions about whether or not a chemical agent was to blame for the massacre. But when weapons experts and U.S. intelligence analysts began reviewing the dozens of activist videos and pictures allegedly taken from the scene of the attacks, they quickly concluded a nerve gas, such as sarin, had been used there...

Burning at the Stake
http://www.thereformation.info/burningstake.htm
Catholics and Protestants had martyrs but execution by burning at the stake was a punishment normally inflicted for heresy and witchcraft. The method was first approved for use against heretics by the Synod of Verona in 1184 and subsequently confirmed by the Lateran Council of 1215 and the Synod of Toulouse in 1229. In 1401 King Henry IV authorised the first actual statute in English law against heresy - De Heretico Comburendo, (Henry IV,c.15) which gave the clergy power to arrest and try those suspected of heresy. The Act condemned "divers false and perverse people of a new sect; they make unlawful conventicles, they hold and exercise schools, and make and write books." By this Act, the lives of the subjects were put under the control of the bishops, who got power to fine and imprison all heretics, and all possessors of heretical books, while obstinate and lapsed heretics were handed over to the sheriff, to be burned at once, ‘in a high place before the people, that they might take salutary warning.’
