Former Colonel Warns US Generating Enemies Beyond Capacity to Deal with Them

It's not just Russia, but it's beginning to look like North Korea may be Trump's first globalist war using the military first. He's escalated the war in Syria, where Russia and the Assad govt have already made serious gains against ISIS. Now it's ground troops going in there, without permission of that sovereign nation. No wonder Assad says he will consider us invaders. Then there's Saudi's war with Yemen—not our fight but Trump is escalating that too. The guys being fought there are enemies of ISIS.

In looking at North Korea, this one scares me. But again, why the hell do they want nukes? Look what happened to Libya when they got rid of their nukes. John Bolton has already been on Fox stressing regime change there and now drones are being sent to the border. NK knows they're on our growing list of countries targeted for regime change wars. This is the song of globalism, using the military first that Trump said he opposed.

I suspect it's the advice Trump is getting. He needs to clean house. He's going NeoCon. He's surrounded by them and they lie to get their way. It's no wonder the Deep State leadership is and the GOPe are out to get Trump.
Lawrence Wilkerson, a former Army colonel and chief of staff for Colin Powell at the United States Department of State, expressed this week strong criticism of the US government adding more and more nations to its enemies list. Speaking with host Paul Jay at the Real News Network this week, Wilkerson, who is a professor at the College of William & Mary, concludes that, even with the large amount of money the US spends on the military, it is “utterly beyond our capacity to deal with all these enemies” that the US has generated.

In the interview, which is largely focused on some individuals’ effort to influence US foreign policy toward creating intensified animosity between the governments of the US and Russia, Wilkerson explains further his concern about the long list of US enemies.

Wilkerson states:

What I can't fathom right now is why anyone would want, with the situation the way it is right now in this country, another enemy. You know that old conservation of enemies theory: You don't want any more than you can handle at any given time. Look at who we're lining up, Paul. We're lining up China. We're lining up Iran and all that goes along with Iran, including Hezbollah in Lebanon. We are lining up with North Korea. We are lining up with Russia. This is absurd. John McCain and Lindsay Graham can pontificate all day long, but I'm going to tell you that they're idiots. We do not need an enemy list that is beyond what we could even in the most wild moment contemplate handling. We don't have the military forces to handle all these enemies, and, yet, we're bearding them, as it were.
Col. Lawrence Wilkerson tells Paul Jay that from the expansion of NATO to the Western-led plundering of the former USSR, the US has given Russia enough reason to feel threatened:

It sure passes me off. A clear sign of how crappie many people are. I don't expect it to be zero, but what we have now is crap.

Can't speak for Silock, but it burns my posterior

I'm one that thinks national government spending across the board is ridiculously high! On everything, including defense. But if the federal government is gonna waste money (which it is), it's better to waste it on the defense of America rather than turning Americans into government titty suckers.

I do know the current trend of huge spending on both is gonna continue until the bottom falls out though. It's all about buying votes in the end. As we all know, strong military spending generally buys more R votes. Strong welfare spending generally buys more D votes. So we better keep a damn strong military to protect these Nancy's we are producing.

In one case, we have the world's best military. It's fine where it is.

In the other case, we still have poor people. It's not fine where it is.

So, back to you: this doesn't give you pause?
Where do you think the rest of the American media is?

Nothing. But it's their job so it's hard to believe they've just collectively decided not to cover him.

While you two are trading one liners, lets get one thing clear for Irish Bill... Tillerson was not "fatigued", the failure to meet was due to the turmoil of the SK prez being impeached
