I’m old enough to remember when Democrats pretended to be in favor of peace. – The Biden administration is already well down the road in its campaign to put an end to all the peace that broke out all over the Middle East during the Donald Trump presidency. China Joe hadn’t been installed in the Oval Office for more than 48 hours before he ordered thousands of additional U.S. military personnel to move into hot spots in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, as he and his handlers prepare to restart wars without end and revive the fortunes of the military/industrial complex that Eisenhower warned us about and Trump had done so much to neuter.
The Biden war buildup continued this week with new arms sales to the governments of Chile and Egypt, despite the latter’s horrible record on human rights abuses. Unsurprisingly, the arms sales benefit weapons maker Raytheon, in which China Joe’s new Secretary of Defense owns $1.7 million in stock, which he was supposed to have already divested but of course has not done so.
Biden just approved a $200M Raytheon weapons deal for Turkey. Last week he approved an $85M Raytheon weapons deal for Chile.
Biden’s Sec of Defense has yet to divest his $1.7M in Raytheon stocks & was a Raytheon board member prior to joining the admin.
This should be illegal.

From a story at Al Jazeera:
The United States approved an arms sale worth nearly $200m to Egypt but vowed to press human rights issues after an American activist reported his family had been harassed.
The Biden administration – which has vowed to end support for Saudi Arabia’s offensive operations in Yemen’s devastating war and is reviewing a major jet sale to the United Arab Emirates – said it approved the sale of 168 tactical missiles to Egypt.
The $197m sale of the Raytheon-made Rolling Airframe Missiles was requested by the Egyptian navy to improve defence in coastal areas and around the Red Sea, the US Department of State said.
The department said in a statement it approved the sale, subject to congressional review, as Egypt “continues to be an important strategic partner in the Middle East”.
Biden has vowed a tougher stance on human rights after his predecessor Donald Trump courted Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, whom he reportedly called “my favourite dictator”, in part for his cooperation with Israel.
If you are a parent with military-age children, you might want to start educating them about what is happening here. This is just the beginning of a new buildup to re-establish the Middle East as a theater for U.S. intervention into civil wars and conflicts between nations that have largely had their militaries armed by either the U.S., Russia or China. Proxy wars designed mainly to be used as tests for military preparedness and new weapons systems.
The Biden effort to kill the U.S. domestic oil and gas industry is also a big part of this, designed to intentionally make our country more dependent on the Middle East for oil resources and establish the rationale for intervention into what are largely civil conflicts. The inevitable return to this kind of interventionist foreign policy is perhaps the single most tragic consequence of the theft of the 2020 election. The irony is that it will be the college-aged dupes who voted in such large percentages for Biden who will be shipping over to these war-torn areas and returning with missing limbs or in body bags, all so the warmongering politicians in DC can continue to personally profit from the military/industrial complex.
That’s the truth, and we should not be shy about saying it.
That is all.
