Lindsey Graham engages in a detestable activity called terrorism (Video)

Authored by Serban V.C. Enache via Hereticus Economicus:

On national television, Lindsey Graham, a republican senator, engages in a particular and detestable activity called terrorism. If the people of Venezuela and Cuba don’t choose Washington’s puppet, then they are going to suffer violence and death via invasion; because US economic warfare [forcing casualties via dearth] against both these countries is not enough. Graham wants to imitate Reagan’s invasion of Grenada and apply it to Venezuela and Cuba.

Notice how the interviewer on Fox News treats this terrorist threat as if it’s something vaguely out of the norm and thanks this subhuman filth of a senator for the interview, instead of invoking the US constitution, international law, and basic common sense against this maniac’s reprehensible proposal.

Let’s make it abundantly clear. All institutions [state, private and quasi] and all actors pressing for military confrontation and labeling diplomatic solutions as treasonous or anti-American are the scum of the earth, a cabal of death and ruin. They are war profiteers. They are a threat to other nations, including their own – a threat to all Humanity and a scourge before the eyes of any god worthy of worship. And in the interest of peace and rational dialog among and between nations, these supreme criminals should receive life sentence in prison.

I will cite three paragraphs from Emmerich de Vattel’s The Law of Nations 3rd book: Of War.

§ 32. PRETEXTS.

Let us, however, entertain a better opinion of nations and their rulers. There are just causes of war, real justificatory reasons; and why should there not be sovereigns who sincerely consider them as their warrant, then they have besides reasonable motives for taking up arms? We shall therefore give the name of pretexts to those reasons alleged as justificatory, but which are so only in appearance, or which are even absolutely destitute of all foundation. The name of pretexts may likewise be applied to reasons which are, in themselves, true and well-founded, but, not being of sufficient importance for undertaking a war, are made use of only to cover ambitious views, or some other vicious motive. Such was the complaint of the czar Peter I. that sufficient honours had not been paid him on his passage through Riga. His other reasons for declaring war against Sweden I here omit.

Pretexts are at least a homage which unjust men pay to justice. He who screens himself with them shows that he still retains some sense of shame. He does not openly trample on what is most sacred in human society: he tacitly acknowledges that a flagrant injustice merits the indignation of all Mankind.

§ 33. WAR UNDERTAKEN MERELY FOR ADVANTAGE.

Whoever, without justificatory reasons, undertakes a war merely from motives of advantage, acts without any right, and his war is unjust. And he, who, having in reality just grounds for taking up arms, is nevertheless solely actuated by interested views in resorting to hostilities, cannot indeed be charged with injustice, but he betrays a vicious disposition: his conduct is reprehensible, and sullied by the badness of his motives. War is so dreadful a scourge, that nothing less than manifest justice, joined to a kind of necessity, can authorize it, render it commendable, or at least exempt it from reproach.

§ 34. NATIONS WHO MAKE WAR WITHOUT REASON OR APPARENT MOTIVES.

Nations that are always ready to take up arms on any prospect of advantage are lawless robbers…

In the 19th century, the British Empire imposed ‘free’ trade via gunpoint.
In the 21st century, the US imposes ‘democracy’ [aka. plutocracy] via gunpoint.
Both served/serve International Capital.

Neoconomania at work. They started out as Trotskyites, promoting world domination through enlightenment and then simply abandoned the trotsky and fourth internationale tag, invented the neoconservative tag, enlisted some token old world Goldwater types into the ranks and continued on with their notions of world domination through ‘enlightenment and a gun barrel’. Tough to teach old trotskyites new tricks.

I’ve heard commentators say Lindsey Graham is an intelligent man. I disagree. What he is though is a politician of exceptional ignorance, bigotry, racism and hubris. A true reflection of the United States of Arseholes.

I’d be worse if he knew what he was doing.

What else can you expect from Adolf Graham, best buddy of Fuhrer John McHitler (May he rest in war — he didn’t like peace while he was alive, so he shouldn’t have it now)…
The fact that he said a couple of sane things about Russiagate doesn’t make him any better in his main issues: war, war and more war. Lock him up.

you must really hate Hillary Clinton – the woman who would be Queen and have the world at her feet…
McCain was a great warmonger as well and he and Lindsey were best buds.

Wasn’t he the one that visited Boeing’s SC factory and told them “to hell with defects, we have schedules to keep.”

Graham is a prime example of the neoconservative and liberal hedgemonist cheerleaders who back the imbecilic foreign policy making of trump. He’s also beholden to the Israelis and fervently espouse Zionist policy making.

Useless Graham is a prime example of the inept Neo-Consevative and global liberal hedgemonist cheer leading squad within Congress and the Executive level of American government. He is also a fervent advocate and supporter of all things ‘Israel’ and pro-Zionist.
