We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

U.S. Intelligence Predicted: U.S. Support For Rebels in Syria Would Lead To Fall of Ramadi

Click here to access article by Bernhard from Moon of Alabama.

The author digs up more evidence that the Empire directors knew and executed plans to use terrorist groups, which were trained, supplied, and funded by the Empire, its Medieval Arab allies, and Turkey to overthrow the Syrian government and to generally create chaos in the region. 
Three new news items provide that the Obama administration, as well as Turkey and other countries, have knowingly created the current situation in Syria and Iraq. They knew that their support of the opposition which from the beginning included Al Qaeda would likely lead to the creation of an Islamic State. The administration was warned as early as August 2012 that this would then lead to the fall of Mosul and Ramadi to an Al Qaeda entity. 

As the Empire's secret terrorist army, ISIS, wracks up one more victory, the fall of Ramadi, capital of Anbar province in Iraq, the Empire does nothing while they pretend to be fighting ISIS.
