Way to make the cannon fodder go quietly into that good night?
Make them angry first.
The recent refugee crisis is being used for precisely this same purpose. In fact, while a false debate is being managed by the Western media and Western political figures to either unconditionally accept the refugees or unconditionally reject them, the only singular narrative both sides are being made to agree on is that instability across MENA is to blame and more bombing is the answer.
My money is on Syria.
Obama lubed up the American public.
Social Engineering vs. the Inevitable Rot of Empire
A refugee crisis was inevitable, regardless of the timing and magnitude of any given deluge that may have been created or manipulated by the West. Destroying the planet in pursuit of empire, pillaging nations and hauling away the wealth of the world, inevitably leads to endless streams of victims following their stolen wealth back to the thieves’ den. As an empire expands and the list of its victims expands with it, the number of those an empire is able to fully assimilate versus those who will inevitable overwhelm it eventually tips the balance against the empire’s favor.
Such was the fate of the Roman Empire, which over the course of its decline, had its institutions overwhelmed by peoples it had conquered faster than it could assimilate them.
The truly peaceful solution is to kick out the terrorists and never let anymore in. Mass deportations.
Not to go antagonising the guys. Let Putin sort out ISIS like he wants to, Greece gave him permission to edge nearer through their airspace. Let him do it. Russia has more money (gold) than us.
I would like to remind you that Kuwait recently blocked remittance (immigrant money leaving the native-earned economy) because it funded terrorism. We should follow suit. The economic argument in favour of immigration is tricksy, yes, they make a lot of money here (plus benefits which count here) but it doesn’t remain here. It leaves, to other economies, via remittance, and it seldom comes back.
Please, share this link above if you think there’s anything to it.

When you’re going in the wrong direction, progress is the last thing you need. Maybe the “progress” that defines our age is closer to the progression of a disease than its cure. Sorry to be such a buzz-kill, but things aren’t looking good and show no signs of improving any time soon. In fact, from where I’m standing, it looks like western civilization is picking up speed the way things do when they’re circling the drain.
