US/UK Special Relationship: Partners in High Crimes Against Humanity

by Stephen Lendman

obama-cameron

Obama hosts British Prime Minister David Cameron at the White House today. Focusing on mutual issues.

Anti-populist ones. Imperial ones. Geopolitical ones. Sinister ones. Ongoing wars. Escalation plans. Choosing new targeted countries.

Stepped up cyber and other forms of surveillance. New police state crackdowns. Economic and financial issues benefitting monied interests alone.

Both countries represent an axis of pure evil and then some. Longstanding partners in global genocidal crimes.

In March 1946, Winston Churchill spoke at Fulton, MO-based Westminster College. Delivering his famous “Iron Curtain” speech. Titling it “The Sinews of Peace.”

Noting a special US/UK relationship. Saying “(n)either the sure prevention of war, nor the continuous rise of world organization will be gained without what I have called the fraternal association of the English-speaking peoples…a special relationship between the British Commonwealth and Empire and the United States.”

In November 1945, he said “(w)e should not abandon our special relationship with the United States…”

In 1930, British Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald affirmed it earlier. Churchill incorrectly called its originator. He’s best remembered for what was said earlier.

The special relationship dates from the 19th century. Notably after America’s Civil War. The structure and character of US/UK relations changed.

Hostile tensions abated. Accompanied by growing economic, financial and political interdependence. Its modern form emerging post-WW II.

At the same time not mutually exclusive. Notably Washington’s special relationship with Israel. Sharing strategic interests. Partnering in each other’s wars.

The way US/British relations work. One rogue state supports another. On January 16, AP headlined “Obama hosting UK’s David Cameron for working dinner.”

Saying Britain’s prime minister arrived in Washington Thursday evening for a two-day visit.

His meeting with Obama “comes amid heightened fears about terrorism in Europe and the West.” A press conference will follow.

Ahead of their meeting both leaders issued a joint statement. Typical demagogic boilerplate rubbish. Turning truth on its head saying:

“By confronting the terrorists who threaten us, standing together against Russia’s aggressive acts and continuing our efforts to advance our economic growth, we will continue to advance the security and prosperity that our people deserve.”

“(O)ur ability to defend our freedoms is rooted in our economic strength and the values that we cherish – freedom of expression, the rule of law and strong democratic institutions.”

“Whether we are facing lone fanatics or terrorist organisations such as al-Qaeda, Islamic State (ISIS) or Boko Haram we will not be cowed by extremists.”

“We will defeat these barbaric killers and their distorted ideology, which tries to justify the murder of innocents, whether children attending school in Peshawar, or girls forced to become suicide bombers in northern Nigeria.”

The imperial record of both countries stands in sharp contrast to the disingenuous Big Lies both leaders duplicitously regurgitate.

War criminals multiple times over. Waging state terror against targeted countries, groups and individuals at home and abroad.Find Your Job at HireVeteran.com

Shaming the positions they hold. Belonging in prison, not high office. Responsible for millions of AfPak, Iraqi, Libyan and Syrian deaths. Victims in other countries.

Partnered with Israeli slow-motion genocide on Palestine. With Washington’s support for reemergent fascism in Europe’s heartland.

Headquartered in Kiev. Destabilizing the entire region. Risking direct confrontation with Russia. Possible nuclear war.

Ahead of Cameron’s arrival, he announced joint US/UK “war games.” Joint “cyber cell” activities were launched.

Involving FBI and NSA officials together with Britain’s GCHQ and MI5. Initial games scheduled for later this year will simulate attacks on Wall Street and London banks.

Others will test infrastructure resilience in both countries. Their only threats are ones they invent. Including false flags blamed on victims.

Expect more to come. Maybe something big in either country or both. Rogue states operate this way. Britain and America for generations.

More sinister now than ever. Especially teamed up with other NATO members and Israel. A humanity menacing alliance.

A 2014 BBC poll showed only around half of Brits call US/UK relations positive. Over 40% believe it’s negative.

Perhaps millions of Brits are as fed up as most Americans with imperial wars without end. While homeland needs go begging.

Britain’s social contract is being systematically destroyed like America’s. New Labour no different from Tory governance.

Monied interests alone benefit. War-profiteering now more lucrative than ever. Homeland repression more vicious.

Phony war on terror facilitates police state ruthlessness. Britain, France, other European countries and America are becoming militarized armed camps.

So-called radicalized homeland Islamist threats don’t exist. Except state-sponsored manufactured ones.

Fear-mongering is the coin of the realm. Getting most people to people to believe government Big Lies.

No matter how many times before they were conned. Amnesia plagues Western societies.

Most people believe most everything governments and media scoundrels tell them. Big Lies repeated often enough become gospel.

Manipulating public sentiment always works when done effectively. Regurgitated often enough drowns out hard truths.

Washington Post editors urge stepped up anti-terrorism efforts. More aggressive US-led action in Iraq, Syria, Libya and elsewhere.

Escalated wars without end. More repressive cybersecurity legislation. Ludicrously claiming “cyberattackers are outrunning defenses.”

Urging “harder edge” initiatives to combat nonexistent threats. Invented ones to destroy remaining freedoms. Make America more of a police state than already.

Britain, France and other European countries heading down the same slippery slope toward full-blown tyranny. Likely one major continental and/or US false flag away.

Perhaps exceeding 9/11. Able to enlist overwhelming public support for eviscerating remaining freedoms in the name of security.

Losing both instead. New Pew Research Center findings show over three-fourths of Americans prioritize counterterrorism. Mindless of reality. State terrorism alone threatens them.

Western societies face their moment of truth. Fascism threatens freedom. State-sponsored fear-mongering dispels reason.

Public ignorance and indifference let rogue governments operate extrajudicially. Ruthlessly.

Madness defines official Western policy. Formerly free societies increasingly repressive. Freedoms disappearing entirely.

Wars without end risk armageddon. World peace is pure fantasy. Humanity’s fate hangs in the balance.

    Another fine article.
    England,( I won,t include Wales or Scotland) over the last few centuries have invaded 98% of the worlds countries, stripped them of their wealth, killed millions, and through their City of London Jewish Bankers and controllers, are still doing it!
    The Rothschilds created its bastard child Israel and all its horrors as a Jew base to create world mayhem.
    All the worlds money, wars and terrorist problems can be directly traced back to England.
    All roads don,t lead to Rome they all lead back to this parasitic criminal bunch.
    It,s time this to put these criminals out of business once and for all before there are none of us left.
    How can such a small group of people control the planet for so long.
    It,s time we got our stolen wealth back and rid the world once and for all of this curse.

      There was a lovely moment a couple of years ago when all airplanes were grounded over the United Kingdom due to volcanic dust, the port of Calais looked like a scrapeyard of old used cars that were ditched by histerical international bankers and brokers community trying to panically reach before world’s most criminal stock exchange opens and reopens. Taxis, bus drivers, taxi boats had a week their wallets ever dreamed of.

      Wales perhaps but you should not exclude Scotland. Proportionally it is likely that the Scots had as much say in the Empire and its after effects as the English.

      “” How can such a small group of people control the planet for so long.””

      The satanic jews are experts at concealment and camoflage .

    continuation…..I am more optimistic that there is change afoot. However there is no room for complacency as the most compelling tool for public support of the “wrong agenda”, are the heinous false flag attacks that have the backing of the MSM.

    Your article exposes the crimes of the U.K. and U.S.A. Governments in support of Zionism but only focuses on the negative, By highlighting the small victories against the Zionist Criminals will gain traction and engender more support from an awakening public.
