U.S. American Nationalistic Radicalism - in Financial Terms
Various!Posted by Terje Lea 2011-02-11 20:00:15
I think the words need to be written and that despite the rather welcoming words of the political kind to the developing countries, I think it's clear that USA remains, at least partly, patriotic radicalist in financial terms and need to be met with both cynicism/hostility and the consequent raw muscle, i.e., having the dentist to remove the fangs!
Just so that I'm clear, my irritation goes back to pre-Nazi-Germany and the WW2.
Putting V12 Ford engines into the Blitz-tanks of the Nazis.
Greatly surprised by the French copper/bronze statue of Liberty when they, USA, infact impelled the WW2 while in the ruins hearing the fragile devastated Nazi-voice: "But we studied New York and Broadway" or "But we studied New York and the letters", a code for being in bed with one another over ideas!!
It's also remarkable that when they say they "love" the world and industry is supposed to happen it happens in USA of the kind of Facebook, Google, Apple (with the i-products) and the rest, yet when the rest of the world is to make industry it needs to comply with the "rules"/"rules of the old money". I take this to be a corroborative of the world pre-1939, that is, the U.S. Americans are not necessarily honest!
Looking at the other parts of America, the continent (5+2), usually named Americas by The Economist, one can easily point to a burning Mexico right underneath the USA border and further point to a United Bananas for the rest, i.e., dictators and shady scheming, just for having the slavery and cheap products! Obviously, I demand new times from the U.S. American business network (singular term), thank you! (Not that I expect any guarantee, with a smile of pain from a soon-to-be-an-abductee. )
Countering/running parallel with the question of involvement of Ford and its factories in Germany, the most important question in my opinion is how much goods has been imported into Germany, esp. from USA, let's say for the period of 1933 to 1941?
To what extent can one say that any imports from USA have contributed to the Nazi-German war machine?
And lastly, what about the sponsoring, the acquisition of funds, money or resources whatever to Nazi-Germany? Did they acquire money from abroad? To what extent?
New (I want to test some "signals" here): Can it also be that USA and Japan had an agreement over Pearl Harbour on the number of vessels that were allowed to dock with the harbour there and that if this (bilateral) clause was to be breached Japan would attack harshly? Thus, did USA also impel/provoke this attack and launch into war with Japan?
Did also USA "nuke"/bomb Tokyo into total destruction for avoiding the aftermath of the WW2 against the Japanese (that is, destroying the convention of settling the post-war matters with the Japanese in a "justified" way)? That is, if you have the "war"-documents stored in the Capital (by convention) and the enemy destroys the Capital so that the documents then it becomes impossible to settle a judgment of the war. This may be a motive by the USA to hide the initial crime of themselves to provoke the Japanese to attack Pearl Harbour by harbouring too many ships/sea vessels there of the military kind.
It must, though, be pointed out that the Japanese have been hard on their own neighbours for some time up to the point to the conflict with USA in WW2 and it can very well be that the Japanese have gotten what they deserved in the end after all. It has been an aggressive power through the whole of the 30s and has engaged in a number of conflicts up to 1945 and its unconditional surrender. I think this note undermines any fact that USA in any way willingly wanted a war with Japan, but rather, as it is uncontroversionally written, that USA has been assaulted in 1941 in Pearl Harbour. Just to clear some air.
My assertion for the Ford V12 engines stems from a documentary I've seen.
"Burning Mexico" simply means the civil unrest there in relation to rife crime, possibly put to a higher level by insisted U.S. American exports of relatively advanced gunnery, i.e., large caliber weapons and what have you. The military walks the streets there which is a state of emergency, honestly speaking.
United Bananas you can check out yourselves. CBS 60 Minutes had it covered a while ago to some extent.
Further: SS KURSK
First it appeared that SS Kursk had sunk as a matter of malfunction by one of its torpedos (fuel failure, complex stuff) and this was allegedly confirmed by footage made by Norwegian underwater services (closest and ready with equipment).
Rather later, it appears that SS Kursk may have been sunk by an MK48 torpedo of the kind that USS Miami may have been equipped with as its location was rumoured to be close to the "accident" of SS Kursk. This was indeed the finding of the very excellent French journalism and that the entry hole in the front of SS Kursk is identical to a typical hole made by an MK48 torpedo!
The suggestion by this very topic makes it indeed likely that SS Kursk was sunk rather than suffered from a mishap simply because this topic envisions such behaviour from the U.S. Americans likely! Now, don't blame this "psychiatrist"/"psychologist" because that's obviously more joke than true, but still... Hmm... I'm still wearing my Sherlock Holmes outfit and it seems that the world makes this necessary in many aspects! Booo! Beware! SS = Submersible Ship.
Further on USA foreign policy. Relating to the State Department, USA is less than neutral in matter of aid and development to the developing world! Indeed, the UN has for a number of years recommended that this amount of money-value should be about 1 - 3% of GDP. The U.S. Americans can smile all they want, but I want it clear who they are and what their numbers are!
Thus, aid contribution from USA to the developing world speaks for itself: it stands at 0.001 % of GDP or so and has been this way for many, many years!!! So who are they to claim world leadership??? Because they are NOT world leaders!!!
Correction: It appears they do comply with new standards of contribution to the UN and also paying the highest amount of money. The source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Nations#Funding! However, in the past, USA has been critisised for this for exactly this rule of 1 - 3 % GDP.
Considerations for 2001 - 2002(?).
I can note that it's evident that USA has little or no qualms over deceiving the whole world and the most prominent case for this is, of course, the case for Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) in Iraq (that didn't exist), presented to the UN Security Council and leading to the invasion of Iraq, with its many hundreds of thousands of civilian casualties!
I can also be noted that the direct negotiations between Iraq, by Saddam Hussein, and USA, right before the war, are kept secret (in the hidden, emphasis), for no apparent reason!
I'm going to add a point to the OP on East Timor and Noam Chomsky, from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noam_Chomsky%27s_political_views#East_Timor_activism:
"Chomsky argued that decisive military, financial and diplomatic support was provided to Suharto’s regime by successive U.S. administrations; beginning with Gerald Ford who, with Henry Kissinger as Secretary of State, provided a ‘green light’ to the brutal invasion. Prior to the invasion, the U.S. had supplied the Indonesian army with 90% of its arms, and “by 1977 Indonesia found itself short of weapons, an indication of the scale of its attack. The Carter Administration accelerated the arms flow. Britain joined in as atrocities peaked in 1978, while France announced that it would sell arms to Indonesia and protect it from any public "embarrassment". Others, too, sought to gain what profit they could from the slaughter and torture of Timorese.” This humanitarian catastrophe went virtually unnoticed by the international community."
Tentatively, you may add Accenture to this set-up that I think has military/para-military facets to it. Adding this to calculated flaws of programming combined with social code of Microsoft and Google (by special indexing), prominently, with the rest following suit (i.e., AMD/Intel incl, other.), the world may well be dug thoroughly down already!
It's almost as if I can say: "Millionen stehen hinter mir" with Adolf Hitler being handed the millions of U.S. American dollars!!! This poster is, by the way, quite famous! This concerns the (pre-WW2) funding mentioned on top of this writing.
This looks now dead set! There should be no doubt any longer that U.S. American radicalism is a fact in this way!
If I remember correctly, USA has been less than encouraging in wanting the employees the coffeeproducing/farming industry to organise and they have been extremely absent in making the coffee industry, the farmers, itself organise to demand the right price for the products. USA itself has an incredibly dubious worker's organisation history (less than 30% of the workers are organised compared with over 50% in Europe with a strong labour movement, the numbers may be incorrect to some extent). Thus I have big expectations to CNN's Freedom Project (heh-heh-heh)! Let's see if they can come off it, so to speak!
(This is brought to you with "Jon Stewart's venereal sponsorship"!!!)
Not that I see it immensely critical, but I think it's useful that USA and U.S. American culture, especially in terms of business life and attitudes toward the the world outside USA, get its fair share of criticism and to large extent the duties (if not outright subversiveness on grounds of superior culture/genes) USA has failed in this regard. This is simply the overall point. That the world is brought level and that world power is now a lot of places and even shifting places, more rarely.
It must be the goal of any politics of the kind that belongs with the UN that people are indeed considered equal and subjects under The Universal Declaration of the Human Rights. This implies a lot of stuff!!! It has implications on how we share knowledge, how we behave in terms of business relations, internationally, and that world justice has a chance of rightful scrutiny and intra-country/state of justice can be mediated into its proper place. I also add, although earlier cited, that UN has the umbrella of ILO, the International Labour Organisation under its wings! This organisation can prove very important if not critical in the future!
Generally, considering the possibility for system and engineering I find it somewhat strange that society has this slow pace. If the good will would carry maximum weight and work effort, the world should have been looking different by now.
Also adding to the picture, the reported 42600 unsolved cases of "disappeared" people in 82 countries by Amnesty International one may meditate over how many "monsters" there are out there in the world.
Even thinking about the "calm, sedate" Norway, at least I am thinking over the levels of corruption that lead people to run "meat shops", "torture clinics (some of which are "portable" and readily set up)" or "glass works", all of which harbour, potentially (cynically: yes, they are for real), all the sh*ttyness you can muster to swallow!
Even the small issues like adoption and childcare cases by the Childcare units/institution have their Kings and Queens of sh*t! You know, outright corruption!
So, what the heck to make of this grim picture?
A major concern is also to what extent U.S. American expertise is sponsoring European sh*ttyness and how they, cynically, undermine our good efforts, relating the "rules" to a certain kind of personality type they approve of in Europe just to spin this sh*t further. So, the "monsters" are sent abroad or let to chew on the lower social levels (esp. the homeless) and the good are confined/naively or by information held domestically, perhaps scared of the dangerous places abroad or subversely made so by their fellow U.S. American "wolves"/"monsters" when/if they go abroad.
A small note on presentation of Wall Street by CNN and others finishes this text: you get Alison Kosik to present numbers and reports and she has the education of a Bachelor of Arts by Political Science and Broadcasting Journalism! Why is this? Why should this political scientist be presenting numbers and reports from Wall Street unless they present this pretty face to you, facetiously, and yet have this powerful/brutal knock-down from behind, i.e., Political Science (to the World)! Not that I blame this person, but it's this bloody presentation and having the knowledge of this qualification!
The link to the presentation of her by CNN: http://edition.cnn.com/CNN/anchors_reporters/kosik.alison.html
It says:"Kosik received her Bachelor of Arts degrees in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science from The American University in Washington, DC." (Accessed 13.04.2011.)
