EX-CIA OPERATIVE LOBBIES FOR “BULLET HOLE IN THE BACK OF HIS HEAD”
We’re not sure how we missed this (the internet is kinda big) but earlier this week InfoWars picked up on a column published back on August 4 by former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operative Herbert E. Meyer.
In his column, Meyer – a special assistant to the CIA director and vice chairman of the agency’s National Intelligence Council (NIC) under the administration of Ronald Reagan – outlines precisely the sort of thinking that guides this antiquated assemblage of “Cold Warmongers.”
You know … the people who have seen such rousing success by picking a fight with Russian president Vladimir Putin over Ukraine.
“If there is any lesson to be learned from studying European history — or from growing up in a Brooklyn school yard as opposed to, say, attending the most exclusive prep school in Hawaii — it’s that thugs like Putin don’t stop because they’ve been punished or because they see the error of their ways,” Meyer wrote. “Thugs have a high tolerance for pain, and they are incapable of changing their behavior. They keep going until someone takes them out — permanently — with a knockout punch.”
According to Meyer, “the objective of our sanctions strategy should be to get the Russians who’ve been keeping Putin in power, or tolerating Putin in power, to throw that knockout punch.”
Um … actually the objective of our “sanctions strategy” should be to do no harm to our own economy.
Just so there’s no confusion here, though … what is the “knockout punch” to which Meyer is referring?
“If Putin is too too stubborn to acknowledge that his career is over, and the only way to get him out of the Kremlin is feet-first, with a bullet hole in the back of his head — that would also be okay with us,” he wrote.
We have no problem with Russian leaders taking out Putin – if they so desire. If there’s one country that knows how to throw off oppressive yokes, it’s the Russians. But America should have no role in that process – just as our government shouldn’t have instigated the Ukrainian crisis in the first place by engineering the ouster of the country’s democratically elected leader.
Seriously … how can America claim to be “making the world safe for democracy” while at the same time conspiring to overturn the results of democratic elections?
More to the point: With our government more than $17.6 trillion in debt (and with all sorts of problems on the home front) … why are we attempting to do either?
