British Foreign Policy since Blair came to power in 1997 has been pitiful. The whole world now recognises that the Blair and Bush excuse for the invasion of Iraq was conjured up.
Before Blair came to power he had formed a friendship with Clinton who was to have a great influence on him. To follow that, Blair was to have a strong political alliance with George Walker Bush whose father was responsible for developing C.I.A. strategies to become global drug and arms dealers in order to fund a cash flow for their shadow activities of destabilizing governments with robbery in mind. The European Movement of the sixties was funded by the Office of Strategic Services, precursor of the CIA. Thus we joined the Common Market and the Commonwealth became somewhat defunct. We lost our Industries including Fishing, Iron and Steel etc, the Great Port of Liverpool and it’s Industrial hinterland was emptied. Edward Heath had been the fool who sold us short.
Blair literally became Bush’s poodle. Kendall Myers, a senior analyst at the State Department, reportedly said that he felt “a little ashamed” of Bush’s treatment of our Prime Minister and that his attempts to influence US policy were typically ignored: “It was a done deal from the beginning, it was a one-sided relationship that was entered into with open eyes… There was nothing, no payback, no sense of reciprocity”.
How right it is today, 24th June 2014 for Polish Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski to call his country’s ties with the US as being “worthless” and to criticise David Cameron’s handling of EU affairs. This matter is about Poland being used as a US base in order threaten Russia, here and now.
The fact is that the EU, despite appearances, is not at all happy with the way the US has created the crisis in the Ukraine in order to get a stranglehold on Russia.
Bush lauded Blair. In his speech following the 9/11 event in September 2001 he stated that “America has no truer friend than Great Britain”. He was correct; he had landed a US Puppet. Following this event, in an act of pure barbarism, the Foreign Office Library (described by Gladstone’s foreign secretary Lord Granville as the “pivot on which the whole machinery of the office turned”) was closed down and emptied by none other than David Miliband. The language school was closed with the result that a decreasing number of our diplomats could speak the language of the country where they served. The diplomatic font of knowledge was lost forever. Various cronies of Blair became our new Ambassadors.
The first year of the 21st century started on 1st January 2001. Key to understanding US Foreign Policy, is the document Project for the New American Century. PNAC was the blueprint for US foreign policy. Started in 1992, it called for U.S. power in the twenty-first century to be that of an aggressive and unilateral approach that would secure American dominance of world affairs by force if necessary. A group led by Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and Paul Wolfowitz were to put the plan into operation. We have to recognise that American dominance of world affairs includes domination of the EU and Britain.
Maybe some in the EU now recognise that the US funding of the Ukraine Coup and the strange involvement of European Union Foreign Affairs Minister Catherine Ashton, in the affairs of the Ukraine is not to the EU’s advantage.
Post-9/11 call for regime change in Iraq
On September 20, 2001 (nine days after the September 11, 2001 attacks), PNAC sent a letter to President George W. Bush, advocating “a determined effort to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq”, or regime change: …even if evidence does not link Iraq directly to the attack, any strategy aiming at the eradication of terrorism and its sponsors must include a determined effort to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq. Failure to undertake such an effort will constitute an early and perhaps decisive surrender in the war on international terrorism.
From 2001 through 2003, the co-founders and other members of the PNAC published articles supporting the United States’ invasion of Iraq. On its website, the PNAC promoted its point of view that leaving Saddam Hussein in power would be “surrender to terrorism.” It was recognised in this document that “absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event like a like a new Pearl Harbor that Creating Tomorrow’s Dominant Force would be a long process.”
How convenient then was the 9/11 event? In only 9 days the PNAC plan was put into action.
Having introduced this brief introduction on the Axis of Evil from where the USA is governed we need to understand what US Foreign Policy is all about. The USA has no interest in making the world a safer place, no interest in Democracy.
It has but one interest and that is World Domination. US waged wars in Middle East and is now trying in Europe, in order to dominate the world energy markets and thus control the world, this has nothing whatsoever to do with Democracy.
The purpose of British Modern Military must be to stop wars, not to destabilise, invade and cause millions of deaths. That of the Foreign Office should not be one of empowering the USA in its continuing quest for World Domination but to return to Diplomacy, get worthwhile Ambassadors and recover our lost markets.
