Puppet Politics: Who Really Pulls the Strings in the White House?

The recent call by the US Secretary of Defense for more boots on the ground in Iraq and Syria clearly shows who is “the boss in Washington”, who is “pulling the strings” in the White House and who has “the final say on everything in today’s America”, leaving the US president in the role of an obedient puppet, according to an American journalist.

American journalist and analyst Martin Berger has recently been very critical of the US president and his administration.

The recent statement by US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter to put more boots on the ground in Iraq and Syria, despite the repeated claims of President Obama that the US is not going to get involved in a new large-scale ground war, demonstrates who is “pulling the strings in the While House,” Berger says in his article for New Eastern Outlook.

“Ashton Carter’s statement is clearly showing us who’s the boss in Washington, since it’s the arms giants that have the final say on everything in today’s America, they are “pulling the strings”, leaving the role of an obedient puppet to the sitting US President,” he states.

The author further declares that in an attempt to secure the so-called “American hegemony” with bayonets, Washington has been wasting one third of all military spending in the world on expensive weapons, instead of spending this money on the American people in a bid to improve their living conditions.

He was particularly critical of Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham, who have been calling for an all-out assault on Syria and urging to triple the number of US military forces in Iraq along with sending a similar number of troops to Syria.

“Graham went as far as offering a plan for the invasion of Syria, according to which up to 100,000 troops from Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Turkey were to be supported by roughly 10,000 American soldiers.”

“Joint interventions of the US and Arab troops to Syria have been proposed before, especially by John McCain, who enjoys close ties with Saudi officials that he uses to profit from military contracts between the US and Saudi Arabia.”

The author suggests that the “hidden puppeteers” are not simply convinced that they enjoy full control over the White House but of the entire world.

“They have created their own coalition against ISIL (Daesh), carrying out military operations on the territories of sovereign states without any form of consent, in violation of Article 51 of the UN Charter [which] clearly prohibits such a course of actions without the decision of the UN Security Council,” he acknowledges.

“And it is unlikely these “strong-willed” US officials would care to obtain the consent of Iraq or Syria to launch a new military assault on them, assuming that the UN and its Security Council is a useless relic that can easily be ignored,” he adds.

Therefore the journalist urges the international community not to support the “new adventure” of “US military puppeteers”, who “belligerently bomb the hell out of other countries.”

He instead suggests the creation of an impartial court, which would eventually punish “those warmongers in the United States, Britain, and other submissive American allies that are responsible for armed conflicts, chaos, poverty and hunger.”

    Bravo! What else could have been expected from the water boy who claims to know how to play golf!

    Wow! didn't expect that coming from America! very timely very app and a credit to alternative media like Sputnik and its commentators who have pushed this message loud and clear for months. Make no mistake this is a major breakthrough in how our comments impact.

    The entire US Government has been compromised for decades. No matter what the people think they're voting for a different side, it makes no difference on the policy, both parties do as they're told by the Elite few.

    This is why JFK was killed, he was the first POTUS to challenge and promise to bring change the hopelessly corrupt electoral system
  • dvdgrg09
    How many times do these things have to be said? It gets "tiresome" after a while, kind of like western media without the advertising.

    ivanwa88, Alas, Martin Berger will have no voice in any significant US based news outlet. I fear we are heading for a head to head conflict between the empire of chaos and those supporting stability in the ME as it is only a matter of time before the SAA rolls up to the border with Turkey and Iraq. This is a presidential election year, so there is no telling how far the empire of chaos will go to save face.

    Shue, JFK was indeed the only truly independent president in the last 100 years. He challenged Israeli's nuclear weapons program, the Fed and even the military industrial complex by refusing to get pulled headlong into the Vietnam war. Can you make more powerful enemies than that?

    For now, the extended 'british' establishment controls the US through their Wall Street outlet.

    e.trete It is incredibly complex I'm not sure if this level and number of players and various alliances have ever faced each other at the same time with so much at stake. It is undoubtedly the perfect storm! Russia entering the arena at the time they did, was no mistake. The stakes had just become to high to ever ignore! If US doesn't back off its vicious aggressive stance and pull back its going to get real nasty. I personally feel Obama realises this all to well can his conscience allow him to continue on this destiny with the grim reaper!
    Will it be Obama who gets up and says 'enough is enough' and starts the reversal of US war engineering. I have a gut feeling that may very well happen. There's just not any room to keep pushing the boundaries without a big bang and believe me it wont ever be just one big bang. There will be no winner who sort power over others. This conflict cant be decided by one nation coping it! way to complex for that. If Israel was to nuke Iran I have no doubt that Israel would cop it as well.
  • For the most part the way politics works in the West is through Bribery, Black-Mail and Coercion. Failing that Character Assassination, Economic Assassination, or Bodily Assassination.

    Mystic-One, You forgot...."in the name of democracy" and...... "to protect our freedom" Best jokes coming from the white-house.
  • Obama wasn't even allowed to close Guantanamo. A psyop president for a psyop democracy run out of a psyop office in the Pentagon. Of course, he is the President, he could order colonels to arrest the generals -- but would they obey him?
  • Matthewbleu2
    Ashpole Carter is just a peon in the scheme of things in the Beltway. He does what he is told to do. Obama has been sidelined. To know who the 'Hidden Puppeteers' really are read this report by Preston James PhD:

    e.trete, You and Shue are both right. Perhaps the biggest no no that JFK did was to print silver certificates to rival the Federal Reserve Notes (FRNs), created by the Fed out of thin air and backed by nothing, even today.

    Abe Lincoln was assassinated because he issued gold certificates to rival those of the elites at that time (the same Khazarian Mafia).

    But the big squeeze is now on. Read this :

    Re-discovering puppet/puppeteers relationship? Almost all European modern history have be driven by greed...which means money, which means banks, which means banksters...some with scarce 200 years of existence believe they know all about all...Obama...perhaps, just perhaps he have done an excellent work...doing nothing (playing golf, enjoying Hawaii... as it have exposed to world view the real, concrete existence of a powerful shadow, deep government...even in US...perhaps only unintended consequences...but who in the US history have be against powerful lobby and illegal occupiers president interests? He have not put at risk to bankers, the only unforgivable "sin" punished with...assassination...
