PROFITING FROM THE GAME OF NATION BUILDING
By Bob Djurdjevic
This writer's Nov. 17, 1996 WASHINGTON TIMES column, "Demo Farce and the American Century," pointed out that the 1996 presidential election had all the earmarks of a one-horse race, as both presidential candidates (Bob Dole and Bill Clinton) raced for the same stable owner - Big Business. Now, there is some new evidence that the New World Order (NWO) clique are exporting their Demo Farce to several other countries around the world.
How many times have you heard the likes of Bill Clinton, George Bush and other Washington insiders justify the presence of our troops or non-governmental organizations in over 100 countries around the world on the basis that they want to export to these nations American values, such as freedom and democracy? This writer has lost count, but "ad nauseam" could be an adequate answer.
Words are cheap, however, and the average American voter's gullibility is great, thanks to constant brainwashing by the establishment media. It's only occasionally, such as in the case of Somalia, that tragic events show Americans how our government is actually exporting a Demo Farce and neo-colonialism under the guise of democracy and nation-building.
Luckily, there was no loss of life in the latest Demo Farce news. But there was a significant loss of liberty and/or national sovereignty in several countries around the world.
In Turkey, for example, its Supreme Court outlawed the country's largest and most popular Welfare Party which won handily the national elections the last time around. The Court also ruled that seven leaders of this Islamic party would be banned from political activities for five years. Among the seven was Necmettin Erbakan, a former Turkish prime minister, who was forced to resign from office in June 1997, after an incessant 12-month U.S. campaign against him, and the threats of a military coup.
Instead, Turkey now has an allegedly "secular" prime minister whose main function seems to be kowtowing to the State Department, and building the "diplomatic and military bridges" to Israel, another supposedly secular U.S. ally in the Middle East. In other words, by disenfranchising the majority of Turkish voters, the U.S. government seems to be deliberating stoking the Islamic religious passions in that country.
The idiocy of such a U.S. policy is staggering. Not only because it shows that popular democratically-expressed will of the people evidently means nothing to the Washington NWO plutocrats. But also because they seem to have learned nothing from their past mistakes.
Need we say anything, for example, about how they lost Iran, an erstwhile U.S. friend, by allowing unchecked oppression to explode in an Islamic revolution in 1979? Or point out the human carnage in Algeria, another country where an Islamic party was similarly stripped of its fair electoral victory? Both situations provide ample hindsight about how quickly a Demo Farce can turn into a Demo Blast (i.e., civil war).
Which brings us to another region where similar U.S. policies have produced the greatest human and material carnage Europe has seen since the end of World War II - Bosnia. First, we stoked the civil war by recognizing Bosnia, a Washington-minted "country" which has never been more of a nation than is New York, for example, or Los Angeles - both multi-ethnic metropolis having seven and three-and-a-half times respectively greater populations than Bosnia. Second, our government fanned the ethnic strife when the U.S. ambassador (Warren Zimmermann) encouraged the Bosnian Muslims' leader, Alija Izetbegovic, to renege on a Lisbon peace deal which all three Bosnian ethnic factions had reached in March 1992.
The U.S. recognized Bosnia on April 6, 1992. What followed was imposition of genocidal U.N. sanctions against the Serbs in May 1992, hundreds of thousands of casualties on all sides of a civil war, and more than a million refugees during the three-and-a-half years of vicious fighting. The U.S./NATO bombing of the Bosnian Serbs in August-September 1995 clinched the victory for the Washington-backed Muslim-Croat federation. The Bosnian war was eventually halted by a U.S.-imposed "peace" agreement signed in Dayton, Ohio, in November 1995.
Since that time, 98 percent of foreign investments has ended up in the Muslim-Croat federation. Which means that the Serbian half of the country got only 2% of the NWO foreign aid. So the NWO war against the Orthodox Christian Serbs continues. It's just that money has replaced the bombs as the weapon of choice (interesting, isn't it, how that invokes similarities with the U.S. Iraq policy).
But the Bosnian Serb Republic got the 100 percent of the NWO Demo Farce in lieu of money. On Jan. 19, the NEW YORK TIMES reported that it took heavily-armed NATO troops to usher the newly "elected" Bosnian Serb prime minister, Milorad Dodik, into office. And no wonder... Dodik's "party" won only two seats, including his own, of the 83 seats in the Bosnian Serb Republic's parliament in the NATO/NWO-engineered "elections" last November. But he is a stooge of the Serbian communist dictator-turned-NWO-quisling (Slobodan Milosevic), according to Vojislav Kostunica, the leader of the Serbian Democratic Party. Which is why Dodik was picked as prime minister by another NWO vassal, Biljana Plavsic, the Bosnian Serb president.
Can you imagine a "democratic" country anywhere in the world where a person who won only 2 percent of the vote, especially if even that was done fraudulently, gets to be the prime minister? This writer can't. Which is why Bosnia is a new example of a "banana republic without the bananas." Meanwhile, over 60 percent of the electorate who voted for the two Serbian nationalist parties are now effectively disenfranchised.
Now, changing the horses for a moment from politics to economics, if we were to ask you which country leads the world in terms of its gross domestic product (GDP) growth, what would you say?
The correct answer is: BOSNIA.
Bosnia's GDP increased by 50 percent in 1996, the first post-Dayton year, according to the London-based ECONOMIST (Jan. 17). Bosnia's GDP rose by 30 percent in 1997, and it is expected to surge by another 35 percent this year.
We won't put you through another question-and-answer quiz about the world's second-fastest growing economy. It's Albania, another country which has just had a close brush with civil war, and where international troops and monitors were installed in 1997, ostensibly to prevent it.
Closer to home, we saw similar tactics at work in El Salvador, Panama, Haiti...
See a pattern? First destroy them, then take over and rebuild them. Which kind of puts an NWO "black humor" spin on an old one-liner:
QUESTION: What's the difference between mechanical and civil engineers?
ANSWER: Mechanical engineers build the weapons; civil engineers build the targets.
Either way, both the destruction and the rebuilding of national assets helps keep the NWO factories busy. Either way, the Big Business wins.
And who loses? Well, for example, the 200 million humans killed by the governments in the 20th century alone, according to the University of Hawaii professor, R.J. Rummell, certainly would qualify as losers. And so could Liberty and National Sovereignty which are now also on the endangered species list.
In other words, what we are seeing is an evil, genocidal, parasitic, Machiavellian-style cynical industrial-financial elite enriching themselves on the backs of other fellow-humans' pain and suffering. It's just that the weapons and the targets; the engineers and the victims; the countries and the ideologies... had different names in various NWO deadly cycles.
Is there a way to stop the NWO beast before it eats us all? There may be. And it starts right here, in the good old USA, where people have the legal means to do it, and where citizens cherish and nurture liberty as inextricable part of our traditions and culture. But do we have the will to do it?
[As you contemplate your answer to this question, here is the 1998 New World Order version of the "Niemöller Poem" for your perusal:
"First they came for the Serbs, and I didn't speak up;
I wasn't a Serb;
Then they came for the Russians, and I didn't speak up;
I wasn't a Russian;
Then they came for the Greeks, and I didn't speak up;
I wasn't a Greek;
Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up;
I wasn't a Catholic;
Then they came for me - an American;
And there was no one left to speak up." ]
If we don't speak up now against such a New World Order - which exports a Demo Farce and neo-colonialism under the guise of democracy and nation-building - when we hear a bell toll, we should know that "it tolls for thee," as Ernest Hemingway put it. Meaning - it will toll for you and I and our lost liberty and national sovereignty.
