Lurching toward catastrophe

BRT has talked about Blowback often as the law of unforeseen consequences, as articulated by the CIA, is more than just apt when talking about Iraq and the rapidly disintegrating Middle East on which actions, carried out by "W" in 2003, set in place an emerging catastrophe of historic proportions, which Obama has enhanced, thanks to continued ineptness when dealing with Iraq, Libya, Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, Russia and China.  

Seen below is a terrific NYTimes graphic depicting the success insurgents have had in Iraq. Click it to view what is happening in the country the US destroyed, thanks, in large part, to Shock & Awe

Click here to get the terrific NYTimes Alliance Map. Chaos incarnate without question.

To learn more about Iraq and the foibles of US foreign policy from sources outside of the mainline corporate controlled press, check out informationclearinghouse,  The National Interest, Global Research and Aljazeera/America as they write about world events from different political perspectives. There are many more links on BRT regarding news so getting viable information as to why the US has screwed the pooch in terms of foreign policy is not rocket science by any stretch of the imagination. 

Addendum: To add fuel to the fire, this Zero Hedge piece regarding Russia and the dollar should warm the cockles of your heart.

Any questions?

Addendum II: Click The Grand Game - ME Edition to see a possible raison d'etre as to why this catastrophe came to be. Chilling to say the least.
