The above italicized words was certainly enough for Stewart Rhodes to start up the Oath Keepers.
There has also been tossed around the subject of foreign troops to come in and do what perhaps our own (see Oathkeepers above) would not.
I believe for those not fully aware of the whole illusionary world of the left/right paradigm, the "structure" such people imagine is sort of like a triangle with the president on top and so on down the triangle.
Used to be, before all the Executive Orders and Leon Panetta informing congress that this administration has just castrated them and gets approval for war from NATO and the UN, that the top of the triangle was not a point and that the triangle was really not a triangle at all but, rather, a trapezoid.
A very interesting study on the subject of "the structure" can be found here:
If one were to take the simplistic triangle view of things, perhaps there would be room for the notion often parroted by a Democrat friend of mine who likes to say "The Democrats are looking out for the little guy".
This is not a partison post. Think about this... do you really believe that all this quest for oil is really to do you the favor of having cheap gas in your tank because somebody way up the triangle cares about little ol' you?
A broader understanding, once the left/right paradigm is behind you is that NATO and the UN have a much bigger agenda than whether or not little ol' us have cheap gas in our tanks.
Besides the oil, or in addition to the oil, since pineapples would not generate such enthusiam for spreading democracy, is the precarious position our US "Petro" dollar is in right now.
In 1972 when Nixon took the dollar off the gold standard, Henry Kissinger worked out a three part deal with the OPEC nations. The first part meant that the US would be the first in line customer for oil. The second part, and the real biggie here, is that OPEC would only accept the US Dollar for oil....from anyone. Thus pegging our new totally fiat currency to oil.
The third part of the deal was that OPEC would be required to buy US Treasury bonds with a percentage of their profits. Today I believe OPEC is the fourth largest holder of US debt.
Some recent turns of events as it relates to the threat to our precious petro dollar have taken place in just the past year and I will list them below. Each below mentioned country have written agreements to exchange outside the us dollar for goods, mainly oil.
China/Russia, China/Japan, China/Brazil, China/Australia, India/Japan, India/Iran, China/Iran, Iran/Russia, China/United Arab Emirates.
Kinda weird how all of a sudden Mitt Romney is making tough talk about China in his recent presidential debate?
To protect "the current system" the dominoes for our numerous _____________ (insert favorite non-war phrase here) going on and will continue to go on until the net is once again established (which won't work out too well I don't think) to keep the US Dollar as the world's reserve currency.
If NATO is being used all over the world to protect "the current system" it is a natural progression of ideas, for me anyway, to assume that "foreign" troops, that is, NATO troops, would be indeed used here to keep in order the status quo because it has not been about, as in ever, looking out for the little guy.
Collectively we are nothing more than a crop where bubbles are made and popped leaving us to the point where it is mandatory for me to work overtime just to have the lifestyle I had six years ago. I'm glad to at least have that ability still but deep down I know we are in the process of being harvested.
Manisfest Destiny did not stop at the Pacific and though the power structure has new faces, yesterday's small pox blankets and reservations are todays vaccines and ghettos.
