Oliver Stone deserves to be listened to. Hopefully thousands of people will read the latest post on his Facebook page and follow the reading suggestions he links up to at the end.
Aside from reaching the absolute pinnacle of film making, Stone has proven to be a well spoken activist and informed political and foreign policy thinker. The man knows what he is talking about, period!
His warning in Facebook should be taken very seriously by all Americans and all Europeans, simply because our leaders and our main stream media outlets are leading us off a cliff over a very false narrative, that if played out, will make the entire Iraq WMDs deception look like walk a in the park.
Oliver Stone’s full post below
PLEASE begin reading / following what Pepe Escobar and Bob Parry write. These are true independent journalists who have not been corrupted by the corporate power elite and U.S. State Department agenda.
BE SCARED. BE VERY SCARED, by Oliver Stone
I hate fearmongering in all forms, but I am scared. It’s impossible to stay silent with this slow-motion disaster befalling the world. So forgive me a quick pop back from writing chores– as ‘Mad Dog’ Netanyahu continues to destroy U.S. credibility throughout most of the civilized world with his barbaric bloodletting in Gaza. But the truth is, it will not divert the U.S. from a more horrible destiny awaiting us in Easter Europe.
At his press conference last Friday Obama bristled at his critics saying, “Apparently people have forgotten that America, as the most powerful country on earth, still does not control everything around the world.”
Pretty major statement when you stop and think about it. Since when did world domination become official U.S. policy? I guess since 1991 and the fall of Communism, but now that our mask has been stripped from its bullying face, we as citizens of the world, and not just the United States, must deal with this new reality — I.E., THE U.S. WANTS TO CONTROL THE WORLD, AND IN DOING SO, WE WILL NOT STOP IN OUR EFFORTS TO DESTROY RUSSIA, CHINA, AND IRANIAN POWER. IF NECESSARY THE U.S. WILL RESORT TO MILITARY SOLUTIONS, INCLUDING WAR.
To understand this new Insane Moment (vide the late ’50s/early ’60s scenario of “Dr. Strangelove”), let’s go to the crucial journalists of this moment, Pepe Escobar and Bob Parry. I’d also recommend historian Stephen Cohen, who discusses the true terrorist policies of the Kiev Government, this is really scary– but he is subscription only at the Nation Magazine (Aug. 4/11).
Pepe Escobar, “Western plutocracy goes bear hunting”
Bob Parry 7/27 “Blaming Russia as Flat Fact”
Pepe Escobar, “Crime (Israel) and punishment (Russia)”
Subscription: Stephen Cohen, “Kiev’s Atrocities and the Silence of the Hawks” http://bit.ly/1soXzp9
