The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

Is there any doubt the U.S. has World War III underway right now?

Iraq-Afghanistan-Pakistan-Libya-Yemen......more certainly on the way. Supremacy in space technology, the U.S. Space Command says, "enables the war fighter" at sea, in the sky, and on the ground. All being done to the benefit of corporate globalization.

The UK's Mail Online reports:

The cost of the U.S. campaign in Libya is set to exceed the $750 million Pentagon estimate set out in March, according to a leaked Department of Defence Memo.

The 'eyes-only' DoD dossier said the U.S. had already spent $664 million in Libya by mid-May - a running cost of $60 million a month since the bombing began in March.

At the current rate of spending, the U.S. will have to shell out at least an extra $274 million till the end of the current 90 day no fly zone.

One of the architects of the current U.S. strategy is former Naval War College instructor Thomas Barnett. During the Bush II administration he was described as Donald Rumsfeld's "strategy guy". He is the author of several books including "The Pentagon's New Map". The video below is a segment from his standard presentation which was given to high levels of military and CIA brass, Congressional leaders, and other elite opinion makers during recent years.

He identifies part of the world as the "Non-Integrating Gap" and outlines a strategy to bring the gap into line with a "global investment climate" - corporate globalization.

He outlines two forces that would be used to "shrink" the gap. One is the overwhelming military force of "Leviathan" and the other "Systems Administration". Leviathan would smash opposition to corporate control and Sys Ad forces, that Barnett says "will never come home", will remain in country to remake and refashion the offending nation in the image of a corporate client state.

There is no doubt there is a world war underway. Obama is the latest water carrier for this corporate agenda. All we need now is for people to wake up and see that the cutbacks in social progress in America (and allied countries) is the way that the corporations intend to pay for Leviathan and Systems Administration, which in the final result means endless global war.
