The treaty signed to end World War One forced Germany into a box that forced it into debasing its own currency and political turmoil, by requiring astronomical reparations, but denominated in German marks.
The United States forced Japan into war by blockading oil to Japan on the pretext of humanitarian concerns over China. Note the “humanitarian” pretext was still the cover story for bombing the hell out of Libya, targeting the leader of the nation (I had thought Frank Church had succeeded in making that illegal) and setting up the monsters that massacred the black-skinned population in Libya.
Sanctions were also imposed after World War II, embargos against any arms shipments to the Kuomintang (Nationalists) in China, and the refusal of any aid including loans, under the pretext of the “civil war” against the Maoist insurgency. Of course arms were pouring in like great rivers on dry land to arm Mao’s Red Army, and finally the mainland was handed over like a gift to the Communists.
Now, the same people that did not care and to this day whisper NOT ONE WORD about the genocide and religious mass murders of black-skinned Christians in Southern Sudan, and their literal enslavement of many more, NOW they hypocritically posture like Pharisees over the Syrian government’s actions. The picture is as confused as it was coming out of Libya during the NATO-supported war by al Qaeda‘s against Gaddafi, but now they can hardly cover up the fact the “opposition” itself is very well-armed, enough to hold off the entire Syrian Army‘s assault on Homs.
The day when they beat their swords into plowshares will not come soon enough.
And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. -Isaiah 2:4
