On Monday Oct. 30th, Sec. of Defense Mattis and Sec. of State Tillerson went before a congressional committee and begged them to pass a new Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) which would grant them the ability to wage an endless war (no time restraints. Mattis said a limit would “embolden the enemy”) anywhere on the planet against anyone they deemed an enemy.
The new AUMF is expected to be a difficult vote in congress at this time. Congress is divided even among parties and we have been using the old one (drafted after 9/11) since 2002. But that one says we are at war with al Qaeda and al Qaeda affiliates… and as we all know… we have been partnering with al Qaeda and al Qaeda affiliates in places like Libya and Syria and the new enemies may not be associated with that old boogeyman so an updated law is required in order to continue with Dick Cheney’s “long war”, “thousand year war”
Less than 24 hours after Mattis and Tillerson made their plea to congress for endless war against anyone, anywhere… New York suffered what is being called a terrorist attack. It is the first such attack supposedly linked to “ISIS™” since Jan. 6th 2017 (still the Obama administration)
What a coincidence, huh? …
It sure seems like he wasn’t really in a rush to get away now doesn’t it?
Funny how he decided to take a pellet gun and a paint ball gun out of that vehicle with him when he got out. Almost as if he wanted to be shot. Either that or whoever planned this figured they would need an excuse to “shoot” him and they didn’t want to give him actual weapons… just in case….
Why is his connection to Tampa being downplayed in the national media?
Well, this might have something to do with it:
MacDill Air Force Base, Tampa Fl. hosts the following:
- Headquarters, United States Central Command (USCENTCOM)
- Headquarters, United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM)
- Headquarters, United States Marine Forces Central Command (MARCENT)
- Headquarters, United States Special Operations Command Central (SOCCENT)
- a division of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA)
Which makes it easy to understand this:
They were among about 300 people, most in uniform, who filed Monday into the Joint Intelligence Operations Center at U.S. Central Command to hear President Donald Trump make his first speech at a military base.
CentCom oversees U.S. military operations in a 20-nation swath running east from Egypt to Kazakhstan, and including Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan, the Gulf States and nuclear-armed Pakistan.U.S. Special Operations Command, also headquartered at MacDill, coordinates the global war on terror and provides fully equipped and trained commandos.

Did you know the CIA has a long history of running BlackOps in Uzbekistan?
Did you know US Special Operations forces have been training troops in Uzbekistan since the early 2000s and that this year we just upped the ante over there thanks to the new defense budget?
So let’s sum this up, shall we?
Right at the same time the MIC wants a new authorization to make war anywhere in the world they want under the guise of the Global War On Terror, a man from the same city where the GWOT is being run just happens to attack a bunch of people in a city with close ties to the agencies running the GWOT and he supposedly gets shot and survives holding fake guns and meandering around in the middle of the street waiting to get “shot”…
In the wake of that, in the wake of the new call to get congress to regain some democratic control on our war-making and in the wake of Tillerson and Mattis going to congress and asking for EVEN MORE power to wage endless war, anywhere, anytime, against anyone… a guy from the hometown of the Global War OF Terror (a guy from a country where Special Ops recruits and trains terrorists) runs up to New York with their GWOT-friendly police force and commits the EXACT kind of terrorist act that will HELP those men get the congress to act in the way they want.
And folks still wonder why “conspiracy theorists” exist.
