“Presumptuous Pompeo Pushes Preposterous ‘Peking’ Policy”

A rant by Mike Pompeo regarding what the U.S. should do with China

 

A writer at The Guardian called Pompeo “America’s Evangelical enforcer.”

I cannot imagine a better summary description. Religious crank combined with mafia thug.

But let’s not forget who appointed Pompeo and allows him to make so much noise in the world.

And let’s not forget why he was appointed. To please some immensely rich American oligarchs so that Trump could keep the campaign funds flowing. His illegal policies in the Middle East, of course, reflect the same influence because the oligarchs are obsessed with Israel.

American foreign policy is for sale, quite literally.

Today, almost any major problem in American society you care to study brings you back to the same place – foreign policy, tax policies and extreme inequality, social unrest, police brutality, a stultified two-party system which yields no progress in anything, serving largely as a democracy-themed window-dressing.

And that place is the fact that America is effectively a plutocracy. Its immensely costly military-security service establishment – a trillion dollars a year – serves to maintain and expand a brutal global empire.

And whose interests does that global empire serve? Yes, the same plutocrats driving American government.
