After I wrote the previous blog on explaining the complex relationship between the Afrikaner, my tribe, and the USA (When the Beacon of Freedom is on Fire) I was asked a good question by someone I trust: “Since in your opinion there is not one well trained group, military etc. in the US, then why are we still standing as a strong nation and no one has come on and just taken over?”
Let me clarify first. I said in many of my books that statistics show me that the Green Berets (Delta excluded) as well as the US Navy SEALs (Team Six excluded) are low percentage units with a Selection failure rate of 65% and 80% respectively - that is lower than our own 90% – 95%, period and not good enough. This means in practise that if you should bring 10 of your SEALs and 10 of your Green Berets... when we have finished the South African Army Special Forces Selection course, all 10 of ours will still be there and so will 6 Green Berets and 8 SEALs. What does that tell you about standards? They are too low and the time will come when those men that made it will not cope and let their mates down, simple facts, they should not be there. Then, I do not respect US Police SWAT teams (not even the FBI HRT), I find them mostly Mickey Mouse in training, selection and operational procedure. Any SWAT team waiting 4 hours to move in on a lone terrorist inside a night club, is pathetic and I can show many other such examples too. The same goes for the US Secret Service and the Clinton Whitewash Bureau (FBI to you) that had an acknowledged leaker as Director, my word, no further comment is even needed but it is discussed in various GMJ Books why I have the above views, with examples. Then I often write on perception, where I said a line drawn in the sand without a Marine Division behind it, is just that, a line in the sand and a joke. But let us look at things from what we do know to be facts and kindly remember, when it comes to counter insurgency and counter terrorism, urban and rural, I know enough to be classified as an expert, my non-fiction books on this subject is respected and widely read, my opinion is valued. I have a few questions of my own, which will clarify my views, I hope, and I am not going to give answers although I know the answers as well as anyone reading here, they are in my books or widely available:
Who appointed America as policeman of the world? Show me your mandate from the UN to illegally overthrow more than 60 nations with CIA help. Show me where you have any legal right to attack other nations at will with your military.
Show me your track record wherever you have intervened, mostly illegally so. Show me your successes if any, and explain to me Vietnam and Iraq. Tell me why both those wars, costing hundreds of thousands of lives, started off on fake reason – the Gulf of Tonkin incident that never actually happened, and the Iraqi “weapons of mass destruction” fear that never actually existed?
Where have you ever not run away for home and leaving chaos behind? Showing to the world that if you suffer a few casualties, your Democrats will start abusing your servicemen and your President even where they voted for their war in the first place. And then you withdraw, running for home, yet another defeat.
Where have your trained militias not broke and run away? Wherever they face those opposing them and you, they run away. It is a standing joke for us from Afghanistan to Chechia and before that, Vietnam.
Explain to me Syria. What are you doing in Syria? A place where you are illegally under international law acting as pirates and criminals from a legal viewpoint. At the same time, why are we still not shown any impartial evidence of Sarin gas use by the Assad Government that led to the failed, yes failed, April 2017 cruise missile attack – an act of war, by the way, and the Assad Government (not regime) is the legal UN recognised government of that country. What will you do when Russia shoots your aircraft down which can easily happen since they, not you, have the best SAM systems in the world deployed there? You don’t have any QME (Qualitative Military Edge or technological advance) left. It is a myth as you would know if you bother to read my books, books which I invite you to research factually. You are lacking almost everywhere in military technology and yet you believe your own Merchants of Death, read my books why I say so.
Explain to me Libya, a country that paid compensation for the Lockerbie bomb and became an ally in the War on Terror, yet to be attacked and today, what do we have? A country in chaos creating terrorists to kill you. What message does this send out when you attack and destroy an ally and all in the name of what? Counter Terrorism? Freedom? Democracy? What? Read Code Name Anika to see what damage Hillary R Clinton did to the War on Terror by killing Gadhafi.
Tell me, how many terrorists are you creating with a 96.5% failure rate in drone strikes, those that you are so proud about? Do you know that every time that you murder, not kill, murder, 2 civilians, women and children, for every terrorist you kill, you create a new one willing to kill you in return in your homeland? This is the most pathetic counter terrorism record in the history of warfare, period. You are losing!
Explain to me the Pentagon’s outright lies. In my books, I exposed so many that it is now common knowledge that a US Military Officer is no gentleman, he cannot speak the truth and for what reason? Fear? Shenanigans? Dishonourable behaviour? What? What message is send out when such lies are exposed in the media as they are.
Explain to me why Bill Clinton attacked a medicine factory with cruise missiles, hitting nothing, but doing so to get attention away from Monica Lewinsky, and then think we are too stupid to see this.
I can ask you hundreds of the above questions and they are all discussed in my books, these are historical facts, not fiction. They are asked every single day of those recruiting new terrorists to attack you wherever they can find you. Perception is not only important in counter terrorism, it is everything. I mentioned this in my books numerous times. I use the example of a Barrack Obama hastily drawing a line and a mean looking Vladimir Putin on a judo mat, black belt, waiting to pounce. Who do you think is respected most even if by fear as you say? Do you know that NATO admitted that Russia can overrun them in a few days? Do you know that NATO admitted that the Russian Air Force did more in a few months in Syria than what the USAF and their mates could do in years? Yes, research, facts, they said that officially and yet, no one else is seeing Russia wanting to attack Europe except the warmongers still living in the Cold War but then again, I explain the real reasons in my Intelligence Briefing, a briefing which is so important that it is free of charge on my website and in many books. Download it and see why I am saying what I am saying.
To answer you, why you are still standing? In a few words, you are damn lucky. You only attack weaker nations with your low percentage military, never a Super Power or First World able to counter attack you, from them you stay far away and your bluff is called, every time. Which brings me back to the first question, who appointed you as policeman of the world? What makes you say that you are the leader of the free world and then, when we look to you for leadership, we find the above disasters? Let there be no doubt, if you dare to attack your own size, Russia, China, even us on a limited scale, the war will come home and in my opinion, you will lose such a war rather badly. The cruise missiles will strike you from all sides and you will experience what you meted out and no, you obese citizens with their AR-15s will not, never, stop armour or professional soldiers with air superiority. If you care to read my books, and the Intelligence Briefing, you will note that you are already surrounded, your sea routes can be cut instantly and will be. You exist because you attack the right people, like a bully, taking on those that can only respond by terrorism and not conventional war. You want to play the “good guys, please love us” and yet, what is there to love when you act like you do?
I discussed this very aspect in several books, Code Name Ghost is one, I think, because in counter terrorism it is about perception as I said before. You cannot in this day and age, of mass communication, be caught out as saying one thing and doing another. You are as a nation hated in certain parts of the world, and yet, there was a time, when you were loved. There was a time, a long time, when your inherent goodness came out to the fore and you could claim the moral victory for standing up for what is good and decent. Now where are you? Self-destructing with a mainstream media hell-bound to destroy an elected President with constant lies being published as facts. What message does this send to us, about whom you claim to be “the leader of the free world.” If you want that title, self-acclaimed as is, then expect to be looked at critically. Don’t be surprised or hurt or defensive when you find men like me saying: “Hey, wake up! Look at the facts, you are not as wonderful as you think, be warned, you are heading for disaster. Smell the coffee before it is too late!” And I know many see this as being anti-American, whatever, yet many more do not, they see the value of mistakes being pointed out, of warnings delivered even if ignored. Sometimes I feel like Winston Churchill in the 1930s, not listened to and unlike Sir Winston, I will never be asked to sort the mess created since the 1990s out. Note, the world is fed-up with America and you are living on borrowed time unless you get your act sorted out. Simply put, your Military is not good enough to cash the pay checks your politicians are writing, it worries me. I have no desire to see you humiliated further as you are now. I remember what you once were, the beacon of freedom.
