Last year, the US military was running special operations in 147 countries, which represents roughly 75% of the entire planet. According to Special Operations Command spokesman Ken McGraw, the numbers are record breaking and represent a massive jump from the numbers seen during the Bush administration.
US and NATO military operations have grown exponentially over the years, as the Western nations have taken it upon themselves to police the world and use that position to their benefit at every possible opportunity. The fact that military agents have been deployed to this many different areas in just a year reveals that the US empire is involved in an even deeper war than most American citizens can imagine.
At which point is it safe to assume that the US military is attempting to take over the world and put it under their control? It is also important to point out that the US military is rarely ever on “peacekeeping” missions as they claim, and they are often unwanted in the countries that they are deployed in. They are typically seen as an occupying army by citizens who just want to be left alone.
Surely, most American citizens would feel uneasy about having foreign troops conducting missions in their country, so why should it be acceptable for agents of the US military to do as they wish everywhere else?
In the string of military conflicts that the United States has been involved in since the second world war, they have always attempted to maintain the high road by claiming that they were responding to some kind of threat, and apparently helping the people that they were bombing.
This approach is largely accepted by the general public who is either too afraid or unable to suspect malicious intentions on the part of their masters. In helping themselves to rationalize the nonsensical things that are happening in their name many people are firm believers in the idea that their government is doing good “policing the world”.
If we were being honest with ourselves, we would say that they are trying to take over the world’s governments and plunder their natural resources because that’s what we can see happening around us. War is, and always has been, about conquest for plunder and power. And the many wars that we see taking place around the world today are no different.

Come on now folks …. the good old USA just wants to keep us safe , the better to operation gladio us to death . Look that up folks … nothing to see here . tc all .
US is flat broke and has a 60 trillion dollar debt, so where’s the war fund coming from? If you follow the money you’ll find the invisible hand behind it all.
Which banking empire has 500 trillion dollar/pound? Therefore, if this dynasty is funding the 15 wars the US military is entertaining, who’s wars are they?
The super rich are the only intended winners. The masses are all disposable.
Yep, you’re right, but there is more. Wondering why we maintain continuous wars and secret deployments? Money (buys power) is the key, and it comes from big oil, big banks Wall Street, the military “defense” industry courtesy of the generals in the Pentagon — recall Eisenhower’s parting speech warning of the build-up of the military-industrial complex. By the way, the retiring “helpful” generals all get highly paid seats on the boards of Northrop, Boeing, etc. They now how to keep the contracts coming.
And now, in addition to these fine fellows, we have the CIA which funds proxy wars all over the planet, reaps millions if not more from the lucrative opium business in southern Afghanistan for some off the books budgets to do even more than anyone is aware of. And they exist in their own world. We only think they have oversight, but the ironic thing is, most all of what they do is very top-secret and highly classified. So the Congress who is supposed to oversee them cannot see the documents because they lack the top-security clearance. Ain’t’ that a kick in the head?
What a country!
Rothschild has been the ultimate war engineer/profiteer for 250 years.. they fund the wars collateralize by US and Europe’s sovereignty.
Rothschild financed the British Empire. A Rothschild once said, show me an empire, and then I’ll show you who is financing it.
That’s one of the big banks.
Then there is big oil, Wall Street, and the military defense contractors who along with the CIA keep us in continuous wars. The US defense budget will buy a lot of votes and mansions in Virginia. It’s the deep government no one sees, or knows about.
Then there’s the Patriot Act devised by Chaney and Rumsfeld during the late Seventies and early Eighties under the guise of “continuity of government”. Finally, with 9/11, they and their ilk saw their chance to have it enacted, and it was by the elected criminals who serve in Congress. This spawned Homeland Security and the militarization of law enforcement.
Congress has had several opportunities to abolish it, or at least lessen its powers, but they’ve not do so. Interesting? So we have the war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on poverty, etc. — all of which use tyranny to accomplish their objectives.
We have no rule of law, only the rule of men. They prefer to rule by fiat and that is leading us into fascism. It’s the logical next step..
This way they wont be here when they are needed! And there’s nothing to stop the tyrannical occupier! No one to defend and uphold the Constitution! Not that they would! “We’re over here fighting for you back home”. Mean while the constitution is decimated back home! 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, etc. ammendments upheld only when they feel like it! it’s now mostly an ignore the bill of rights free for all. Our freedoms, and liberty left hanging tatered and torn in the wind! And no one to care!
Millions, and millions, and millions of laws does not a free country make! Liberty, and freedom, in the context it was used, meant freedom and liberty from GOVERNMENT, all you freak’n morons!
The US bankers model themselves on the mafia sending protection (US army) in return for resources. Stop sending your sons and daughters to these control freaks and their agenda will run into BIG trouble whilst the whole world would benefit from peace.
The US isn’t the world’s policeman it’s the world’s secret policeman; much more sinister. But I think its omnipresence may be its undoing. When it starts WW3 its troops across the world could be isolated in a Global Tet Offensive. Millions of troops trapped as just a brigade or a fleet etc., which can’t be reinforced if they’re all under attack, and they need only run out of one supply like ammo or water to be defeated.
Not even the US military is big enough to cover so much of the world. Any pact which has been formed to counter US aggression most certainly involves engaging US forces all across the world at the same time in a Global Tet Offensive. Unable to reinforce each other, isolated, they can more easily be picked off and defeated conventionally. The problem is US politicians would rather nuke than be seen to lose.
