This is what American democracy looks like on the receiving end…
After only dropping 26 171 bombs last year, the Military Industrial Complex was hoping for an enormous injection of business from war hawk Hillary Clinton, they’re worried Trump wants to build populist infrastructure at home rather than bomb the shit out of their latest global game of chess.
The sudden drum beat for war with Russia based on the bullshit intelligence that was released this week sounds like the same drumbeat used to con the world that Iraq had WMDs.
The truth is the public information released is a joke. Of course the Russians would be pleased Hillary lost, that’s hardly proof that they were involved in hacking America’s election.
Even the information released in 2016 by the independent investigators who originally looked into the hack could only find that whoever did it used the same tactics the Russians use.
None of this is proof or evidence of a Russian hack.
But let’s say they did. Let’s say Russia was behind hacking the DNC and passing that information along to Wikileaks – what was revealed?
The hack revealed that the mainstream corporate media colluded with high ranking DNC members to bias the the campaign against Bernie Sanders and it showed how the DNC conspired against Bernie.
Shouldn’t the voters of America know how the DNC really operates? Continually blaming Russia for their loss allows Hillary Clinton Democrats to ignore the fact that it was their own free market neoliberalism that burnt them and that Hillary was a terrible candidate.
So beyond an ill defined impact on the out come, isn’t it an hypocrisy beyond arrogance for the US to complain about Russia trying to impact their election?
America is a country that has interfered with the elections of 45 other countries. Complaining that Russia might have hacked their election to reveal the truth of bias within the Democratic Party is hardly the red menace of Communism come to feast upon the soft children of capitalism is it?
I watched my generation get conned into the bullshit war in Iraq over weapons of mass destruction that never existed, we should resist this latest drum beat for war with Russia. I say that as someone who recognises that Putin is a thug and Russia an authoritarian regime, but conning us into declaring some proxy war based on fake intelligence is not a way forward.
Trump is stupid enough to blunder into declaring war via twitter, let’s not help him.
