Whom the gods would destroy, they first render mad
by Max Denken
Here is Senator John McCain with his Stepford Wives grin, complaining that we didn’t “lead from the front” in Libya, planning what else we’ll do there and elsewhere around the world to fight for dimokratsya (dim like in “dim bulb”). That is, of course, a bi-partisan mindset, shared equally by the American Socialist Diversity Party and the American Neocon Diversity Party. The hit on Libya is the proud handiwork of five socialist women and one communist metrosexual: Hillary Clinton, Samantha Power, Susan Rice, EU’s Catherine Ashton, and B.H. Obama with probable counsel from Valerie Jarrett.
And here are the wages of folly as per the latest news from Libya, in an example of Matt Drudge’s inimitable pairing of text and pictures:
NEW LIBYA TO INTRODUCE ‘RADICAL ISLAMIC LAW’
Here is more news just from the last 48 hrs. proving our rich return on an investment of, so far, 7,453 dead and 46,747 wounded (coalition total per CNN) and three trillion dollars borrowed from PR China to save Mr. Haji from himself in Iraq and Afghanistan:
Iraq rejects US plea to keep bases after withdrawal…
KARZAI: Afghanistan to back Pakistan if war with USA…
On the other hand, our meddling in Arab politics to impose democracy — a concept repulsive to Muslims — has led to tremendous successes elsewhere as per these recent headlines captured at Drudge:
Islamist party poised to win Tunisian elections…
All that followed despite the bitter fruit of America’s betrayal of its reliable ally in Egypt, Hosni Mubarak, officially as of January 2011. That led to the blossoming of the Arab Spring elsewhere and to the ascent to power of the U.S.-hating Muslim Brotherhood. The results so far have been the de-facto unilateral annulment by Egypt of its peace treaty with Israel, and unrestrained mob pogroms of Egypt’s Christians. [Reality check: by the time Haji conquered Egypt in 640 AD, the Christians had been there for 600 years].
By-the-way, where are any voices on the Right (except for a few truculent Libertarians) pillorying this insane Nation-building / Nation destroying travesty? The nations we build are theirs; the nation we destroy is ours. It’s like our Invade them over there/ Invite them over here Muslim relations policy.
There is no need to go here into the economic and social capital self-destruction of the United States that began in earnest under Lyndon Johnson and now in its end-stages accelerates so fast that the increments may be measured daily. As to the economic side, readers of Karl Denninger and Zero Hedge will find there their necessary education. As to the social capital destructions, just as much material exists, with Patrick Buchanan focusing on this area broadly for decades, and others specializing in different segments of the slide. But one headline caught my eye today, for it’s so complementary to all this Uncle Sam warmongering, busybody, spectacularly foolish ways on the international stage.
“The FBI Announces Gangs Have Infiltrated Every Branch Of The Military”

The article summarizes FBI’s new gang report announcing that there are now 1.4 million gang members in the US. That’s a 40% increase since 2009! It’s also an equivalent of an occupying army of 117 divisions of a savage foe. That sounds like hyperbole, until one gets to the gist of the article about the gangbangers’ joining the military:
“The report says the military has seen members from 53 gangs and 100 regions in the U.S. enlist in every branch of the armed forces. Members of every major street gang, some prison gangs, and outlaw motorcycle gangs (OMGs) have been reported on both U.S. and international military installations. [Quoting:]
Through transfers and deployments, military-affiliated gang members expand their culture and operations to new regions nationwide and worldwide, undermining security and law enforcement efforts to combat crime. Gang members with military training pose a unique threat to law enforcement personnel because of their distinctive weapons and combat training skills and their ability to transfer these skills to fellow gang members.[snip] ” Gangs target the U.S. military and defense systems to expand their territory, facilitate criminal activity such as weapons and drug trafficking, or to receive weapons and combat training that they may transfer back to their gang. Incidents of weapons theft and trafficking may have a negative impact on public safety or pose a threat to law enforcement officials.”
These too are the Wages of Empire. The continuous US engagement in multiple foreign conflicts, military incursions, nation building, humanitarian “missions” etc. calls for bottom fishing to find more military recruits, fudging data about the fundamental unsuitability of such recruits, recruiting a foreign legion promised green cards in return for service, and so on. All these people are eventually unloaded onto the civilian population, with dire consequences.
The FBI report makes for sobering reading, what with a map showing vividly what Wonderful Imported Diversity has done to California, photos of cholos in gang colors etc.
A sidebar shows another aspect of Wonderful Diversity:
Expansion of Ethnic-Based and Non-Traditional Gangs
- Asian Gangs
- East African Gangs
- Somali Gangs
- Sudanese Gangs
- Caribbean Gangs
- Dominican Gangs
- Haitian Gangs
- Jamaican Gangs
- Non-Traditional Gangs
- Hybrid Gangs
All those are gangs the United States has imported voluntarily. Most through the folly of sucking in over 1.1 million immigrants and “refugees” per year, overwhelmingly from hostile Third World countries and with sixth rate education, skills, or possibility of acculturation within the American majority. The rest, i.e. “illegals,” it has brought in through the purposefully open Open Borders, government lies and ineffectual posturing notwithstanding.
But that must be by design. Should the traitors, fools and crooks who have a lock on putatively “democratic” governance in America cared a whit about their people, they would have stationed battle-hardened American military units on the Rio Grande, not in Kandahar. And there would not have been one man among the soldiers who has a felony record, or sports gang signs, or is a foreign national. But keeping the border open while Latino narcogangs, M-13s, fleeing criminals and smuggled jihadis stream into the country, has a purpose.
Should this gambit fail, “gangs in the military” is a fallback gambit.
If the people ever decide to rise and shake off the Club of Traitors, Loons, Fools and Crooks ruling them, army units of ethnic criminals and aliens on one side of the unruly serfs, and 1.4 million criminal civilian ethnic gangs to complete the pincer from the other side will come in handy too.
Not many Oath Takers there.
