U.S. Navy needs more Ships to Rule the World
Beyond all the bullshit about the election hacking, the plutarchy's duopoly and whatever else the Ministry of Truth tells people to talk about on a daily basis, the New American Century continues. Seemingly lost in all the talk about Trump and Clinton, as usual, is the fact that Serfs will be Serfs, Rulers will be Rulers and the Empire will march on.
Recently the Secretary of the Navy basically refused to play when Serial Warmonger Defense Secretary Ash Carter ordered the Navy to prepare a reduced budget due to continued sequester budget limitations placed on federal agencies.
"With Congress having today passed the 2017 military spending bill, most of the Pentagon is hard at work preparing another massive military spending bill in 2018. That does not include the US Navy, however.
Ordered by Secretary of Defense Ash Carter to prepare a budget that incorporates $17 billion in cuts over the next five years, the Navy is outright refusing to do so, with Navy Secretary Ray Mabus declaring the cuts to be “intolerable.”
Trump is on record with wanting a military buildup including more ships for the Navy with a stated goal of 350 ships, and his new Defense Secretary "Mad Dog" Mattis, assuming he's confirmed, is no doubt "on board". After all, it's hard to rule the world without controlling the seas. So the Navy Secretary probably felt emboldened a tad by our new Emperor's decrees to increase the Empire's Armada.
Just to emphasize the point, this week "The Navy released a new fleet plan that calls for 355 ships, outlining a massive increase in the size of its high-end large surface combatant and attack submarine fleets but a modest increase in its planned amphibious ship fleet."
That would add 47 ships to the current 308 ship figure.
But according to the Navy, that's a bare minimum force, and to really carry out this Rule the World thing, it would need nearly double that amount of warships.
"According to the summary, the service determined the 355 total was the “minimum force structure to comply with [Pentagon] strategic guidance” and was not “the “desired” force size the Navy would pursue if resources were not a constraint, read the summary.
Rather, this is the level that balances an acceptable level of warfighting risk to our equipment and personnel against available resources and achieves a force size that can reasonably achieve success,” according to the summary, which notes it would take a 653-ship force to meet all global requirements with minimal risk."
Nothing is changing regarding the long stated agenda to militarily and economically rule the world under the Trump administration except the tactics.
"What is more crucial is obfuscated. While Trump has made his position vis-à-vis China, Iran, and “radical Islam” abundantly clear, the media has led us on a different path where Russia is concerned. As such, one could be forgiven for thinking that Trump will reset the button with Russia. In fact, in the scheme of things, Trump is attempting to wean Russia away from China, Iran, and Syria in order to continue and accomplish US goals: Total domination, prevent Russia from re-emerging, contain China, contain Iran, Israel expansion.
It is important to the Trump team to weaken both Russia and China by creating a divide between them - favoring one over the other. Trump defends Russia against allegations of hacking. To the unsuspecting eye, he has appointed a seemingly “Russia friendly” Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson (though undoubtedly the hawkish under-secretary of state John Bolton will be behind the wheel). Though under close scrutiny, Tillerson as Secretary of State is certainly not an ‘offering’ to Putin, although but he may well be a Trojan Horse."
Trump's pick of hardliner pro-settlement lawyer David Friedman as Ambassador to Israel and his continued insistance that he will move the American Embassy in Israel to Jeruselum are clear indications of his and his administration's support for Apartheid Israel and the Zionist quest for a Greater Israel.
People who think Hillary Clinton and the neocons would have been worse are wrong. The neocons have nothing to worry about and they know it, that's all been a charade. If you sit back and look at the overall picture since the fall of the Soviet Union and communism when the Rule the World plan jumped into hyperdrive, the next steps planned under the Trump administration are logical, from a Rule the World standpoint.
Iran has been the final target in the Middle East for decades, it was the final target on the list General Wesley Clark revealed to the world as the agenda of the Bush administration after the false flag operation on 9/11. Trump has taken a very anti-Iran stance and has "hired" anti-Iran comrades clearly indicating they might (finally) take that on. They realize that the alliances between China, Russia, Iran, and (the BRICS, SCO) are threatening their Rule the World plan so they need to weaken those alliances before destroying each individually. Makes sense from a tactical point of view.
It might mean under Trump there won't be a nuclear war like many fretted about if Clinton became Prez, but that wouldn't have happened anyway. A Clinton administration would have to have taken a similar path, divide and conquer, because it came to a point it had to happen. The changes since 2000 in Russia and China, and the alliances created, have caught up to the Empire requiring a different approach.
From the war crimes committed by Bill Clinton with sanctions on Iraq that killed 500,000 children, wars crimes in Somalia, Bosnia and Kosovo; to George Bush and his never-ending War OF Terror and Afghanistan wars and the Iraq war killing a million people; to Obama's wars in Libya, Syria, Yemen, Ukraine and continuation of Bush's wars, the next steps are Iran, China and Russia and the Trump administration will try to deliver.
The Serfs are still Serfs until we decide to do something about it.
