"What would be the reaction of President Obama, Republican and Democrat presidential candidates, the Pentagon, the CIA, and the US mainstream press? I'll tell you: They would all be screaming like banshees! It would be a monumental crisis," Jacob G. Hornberger elaborated.
In that case Washington would have forced Russia to dismantle all of its bases near the United States and remove all of its missiles.
The US "national-security state apparatus" based on the Pentagon, NATO and the CIA, was "entirely new and alien" to the American governmental structure, Mr. Hornberger noted, citing US President Eisenhower.
"The only reason this totalitarian structure was adopted was to oppose the Soviet Union (America's WWII partner and ally) in a Cold War," he underscored.
When the Cold war was over, it would be absolutely logical to dissolve the Pentagon and the CIA, and of course, NATO, the author stressed.
However, those in power were not willing to give up the reins. In order to maintain the US totalitarian national security apparatus "into perpetuity" Washington's decision makers had to invent a series of new crises.
"So, they go into the Middle East and poke a bunch of hornets' nests, which ultimately brings us the perpetual 'war on terrorism,' along with ever-growing budgets for the Pentagon and the CIA, not to mention the never-ending infringements on our freedom and privacy in the name of keeping us "safe" from the supposed danger that they themselves produced," the author underscored.
"No problem. Just foment a coup, just like in Iran, Guatemala, Chile, and other countries around the world," the author noted, adding that the Ukrainian coup resulted in the Civil War, "not much different from the decades-long civil war that the US coup in Guatemala produced."
"That would not only bring an end to the perpetual crisis and chaos, it would also provide the foundation of a peaceful, prosperous, harmonious, and free society," the author concluded.
