Oliver Stone: Trump’s “Taken Handcuffs Off War Machine” Giving Generals War At Any Cost

Do you LOVE America?



    Is there anything holding back all out war?

    Not if they want the war to happen at this time.

    Everything is arranged, the sparks and incendiaries are set and placed for a spectacular and deadly show of destruction on a grand, global setting.

    What’s more, all the players in the game have proven more than willing to engage, indeed hungry for a chance to jump into war.

    Director and political historian Oliver Stone sounds off on the march to war, and the disappointing blind aggression of Trump’s presidency.

    via Oliver Stone’s Facebook:

    “So It Goes”

    I confess I really had hopes for some conscience from Trump about America’s wars, but I was wrong — fooled again! — as I had been by the early Reagan, and less so by Bush 43. Reagan found his mantra with the “evil empire” rhetoric against Russia, which almost kicked off a nuclear war in 1983 — and Bush found his ‘us against the world’ crusade at 9/11, in which of course we’re still mired.

    It seems that Trump really has no ‘there’ there, far less a conscience, as he’s taken off the handcuffs on our war machine and turned it over to his glorified Generals — and he’s being praised for it by our ‘liberal’ media who continue to play at war so recklessly. What a tortured bind we’re in. There are intelligent people in Washington/New York, but they’ve lost their minds as they’ve been stampeded into a Syrian-Russian groupthink, a consensus without asking — ‘Who benefits from this latest gas attack?’ Certainly neither Assad nor Putin. The only benefits go to the terrorists who initiated the action to stave off their military defeat. It was a desperate gamble, but it worked because the Western media immediately got behind it with crude propagandizing about murdered babies, etc. No real investigation or time for a UN chemical unit to establish what happened, much less find a motive. Why would Assad do something so stupid when he’s clearly winning the civil war? No, I believe America has decided somewhere, in the crises of the Trump administration, that we will get into this war at any cost, under any circumstances — to, once again, change the secular regime in Syria, which has been, from the Bush era on, one of the top goals — next to Iran — of the neoconservatives. At the very least, we will cut out a chunk of northeastern Syria and call it a State.

    Abetted by the Clintonites, they’ve done a wonderful job throwing America into chaos with probes into Russia’s alleged hacking of our election and Trump being their proxy candidate (now clearly disproved by his bombing attack) — and sadly, worst of all in some ways, admitting no memory of the same false flag incident in 2013, for which again Assad was blamed (see Seymour Hersh’s fascinating deconstruction of this US propaganda, ‘London Review of Books’ December 19, 2013, “Whose sarin?”). No memory, no history, no rules — or rather ‘American rules.’

    No, this isn’t an accident or a one-off affair. This is the State deliberately misinforming the public through its corporate media and leads us to believe, as Mike Whitney points out in his brilliant analyses, “Will Washington Risk WW3” and “Syria: Where the Rubber Meets the Road,” that something far more sinister waits in the background. Mike Whitney, Robert Parry, and former intelligence officer Phil Giraldi all comment below. It’s well worth 30 minutes of your time to read.

    Lastly, I enclose Bruce Cumings’s “Nation” analysis of North Korea, as he again reminds us of the purposes of studying history. Can we wake up before it’s too late? I for one feel like the John Wayne veteran (of war) character in “Fort Apache,” riding with the arrogant Custer-like General (Henry Fonda) to his doom. My country, my country, my heart aches for thee.

    For those hoping that President Trump would set the world right, they’d better be careful of what they wished for. The genie may not grant your wish in the way that you wanted it.

    Whatever is coming has been orchestrated for years, and now after decades of rehearsal, we draw ever close to the real performance.

    Stay prepared, and stay watchful. Know propaganda from fact, and recognize the true role of governments in crisis.

      1. Obama micro-managed his generals. He purged our best admirals and generals in his
        8 years and replaced them with a bunch of yes men. Now we have a commander in
        chief that gives his generals the latitude to do whatever they want. Polar opposites.

      2. Oliver Stone is michael moore with a Combat Action Badge. That being said I still love Platoon.

        • oliver stone is way cool , michael moore is a pathetic bought and paid for freak-the two aren’t even close

        • Rather than blindly insult the author what did he write that is a falsehood?

        • “It seems that Trump really has no ‘there’ there, far less a conscience, as he’s taken off the handcuffs on our war machine and turned it over to his glorified Generals — ”

          N Korea’s nuclear weapons development programme has reached a point where it can no longer be ignored by kicking that can down the road as other American Presidents have done for twenty years.

          Now it falls on TRUMP to protect America from it’s most serious threat …. a little Fat Kid with the power to launch nuclear weapons.

          Time is of the essence before Kim’s nuclear weapons MULTIPLY like IRAN’S missiles, and it befores more difficult and m ore expensive to reign him in.

          A stitch in time saves nine. 🙂

      3. Paquo obviously I am speaking in hyperbole but they both share the common trait of making films doused in a 55-gallon bucket of liberal white-guilt.

        • Like JFK?

          • Ever see “South of the Border”? It was Stone’s love story on Hugo Chavez.

      4. War is a normal human pursuit, like sex.
        I’ve spent my entire life fighting.
        I lose (a lot) , I win(not often),
        but it is all what
        makes us what we are.
        Don’t need some progressive
        liberal to preach to me.
        I’d just as soon kill
        Mr Stone.
        I’m not a bad ass, but I’m
        a fighter.

        • Im not a badass either, but “Im a donkey ont the edge!”

          When pushed it aint pretty, never was before why would now be any different

        • Rellik, any libturd who tries to preach to me ends up going to the emergency room. I’m not receptive to their BS at all.

      5. First, let me state this
        I regretfully voted for obummer in 2008, and three months later I was sorry
        In 2012 I wrote in Ron Paul, no luck there…

        I did not Vote this election, due to the overwhelming amount of BS in the media and the overwhelming amount of lust for trump, clinton is a criminal and bernie is a sandinista

        Well, three months after Obummer took office I was Pissed off at what he was doing
        and now, once again, I am really Pissed off at trump

        only this time I have more reasons
        let me count the ways…….

        chemical false flag attack again?

        boom, boom, boom the cruse missiles of war!!!!!

        this is not the actions of a reasonable analytical person, these are the actions of a farking idiot!

        Arresting assange!
        this will likely destroy all sources of truth!!

        States Rights
        federal laws are not the last word!

        who is running this government
        I really would like to fudin know

        it sure looks like Kim Jung Underwear is in charge lately

        Anyone with a NUKE is a danger to the USA as well as the entire world

        An individual may be intelligent, smart, careful and thoughtful.

        I am seeing so much stupid right now
        more than I think I have ever seen!
        and I was in the us military back when the Berlin wall fell

        we were so close to nuking each other back then, wow i thought we were done so many times then

        I can imagine how the ones serving feel now, I’ve been there

        Is it possible that some reason and conscience can prevail here, I fear that we have gone too far, and the wrong people are now in power

        you Damn Fools
        look what you have done…

      6. Consider that China and Russia have moved the troops to the NK border to protect themselves from the ants that will scurry out of NK when/if the little idiot plays with more missiles and or nukes.

        Truth be told Tillerson told Putin and Trump told XI to be ready for all hell to break loose in NK when Trump rids the world of this problem.

      7. War is not a normal pursuit. No one likes war and killing. And if that’s what you like then you are not normal.

      8. “Is there anything holding back all out war?”


        All everybody hears these days are nothing short of war … whether it be Russia … Iran … N. Korea … (insert anybody else here) … War & Violence is all what America is about.

        Names and faces may change … but the “Establishments Plans” still have the Green Light on whatever goes.

        War is coming … whether we want it or not … it’s pretty much blatantly obvious by now … those who do not see it … are fk’d!!!

      9. What about the Constitution and that Congress could be the only entity to legally declare war? Oh, yeah, I forgot we no longer go by the Constitution……that’s how we got to this place, the American people let our representatives do whatever they want.

        • What about it? The President is the Commander in Chief and is free to deploy and use the forces under his command as he sees fit. Been that way for over 200 years, ever since Jefferson sent the navy and marines after the Barbary Pirates.

          There is not a single word in the Constitution that requires a declaration of war, all it says it that only Congress may do so. Not a word about use of force.

      10. Another fruit cake out of Hollyweird bitch about Trump. Big Yawn what’s new?

      11. @FTW…….

        I’m not so sure that “seeing it” makes one any better off. If we have global nuclear war…..we are ALL fk’d.

      12. So is NuttyYahoo the anti-CHRIST ??

        He graduated MIT. See boys what you can do with a good education and a worldwide bank behind you.

        Expanding into UN-Chartered waters. Going to be top notch for the Rich and Infamous.

        What’s a few dead cattle. Got to thin the herd from time to time. Pass the Matza balls.


      13. Maybe not so fast. Its just stones opinion. I think there are a lot of would be bullys among the worlds leaders. And any bully looks for a easy victim. We have been easy pickings under Obama. That cannot be said for Loose Cannon Trump. I think its fall in line or expect fallout. And another thing we had the depression and FDR,s New Deal Policy did not end that depression. It was WWII. after WWII they where afraid of another depression. So We got Korea then Viet Nam. and have been in some sort of conflict & police action ever since. There are many people whose ingrained core concept is we have to be at war. They truly Believe without war the depression will return.

      14. To quote a video game, “War never changes.”

      15. Don’t agree that Prez Trump has given the military generals carte blanche – just gave the war winning back to the professionals …

        If the US has learned anything from the turn of the last century to now – pussy footing and mealy mouth diplomacy doesn’t work with these vicious dictator types – deal them a death blow and you get their attention ….

        No more 5 day wait for approval from Old Nine Holes ….

      16. All this talk about war

        hell we been at war, or involved in wars.. for over 200 years

        it hasent stopped yet , so whats all this talk about us possibly going to war,, we already are , have been

      17. I do find it disturbing to give the Pentagon carte blanche to do as they please. Especially when I’m not sure of their intentions towards the American people. What if they staged a coup and decided to ban civilian gun ownership? That’s AUTOMATIC 2nd civil war/revolution right there. They would have no choice but to bring in “UN peacekeepers” for that job and those UN boys will get decimated. The history of UN peacekeeping operations is not exactly someone’s success story.

        • Let’s not make stuff up in ‘what ifs’. Reality is complex enough.

      18. Many readers here are wondering US is at war for 200 years now… every marxist (scientific marxism, not to be confused with american-style cultural marxism)knows very well that capitalism is strictly connected to war, you cannot have capitalism without fascism and war. Ie, Soviet Union was a state capitalism, Stalin was a fascist, and russians went into various wars. If US can no more expand its markets due to rising competing imperialism from Asia, Europe and tomorrow from Africa too, and in the same time there are countless economic and financial problems lurking at the horizon (financial crisis, overproduction, robots-induced unemployment, in a word, fall of the profit rate) it is absolutely obvious the capitalistic bourgeoise has analyzed the possibilities in advance and decided that war is the only possible outcome. Workers need to organize accordingly in leninist revolutionary parties to prepare for the future. By the way, I don’t think war time is here, but the breaking of the world order is unavoidable.

      19. Im all for bombing lots of places into oblivion. Bombs win wars. Troops on the ground waste lives and never solve anything. Give them Hell Harry ended the war with Japan Pronto with bombs. If we get lucky Possibly Liberal Left stronghold sacuntuary citys places like Calif, New York ,shitcago ect might get a good MOAB or two. Time for a world wide culling. The double T team of Trump & Tillerson have my blessing. Start with Korea and look around and exclaim one down who is next?

      20. At the risk of repeating myself:
        Mankind is the only species on the planet that actively and knowingly works toward its own extinction.

      21. The Neocon Global Banking Cabal can not seize total control of the American War Machine until all opposition has been neutralized. 9/11 only did half the job. A new false flag attack on America is being prepared; call it “9/11 – The Sequel”. Trump is totally controlled so he will allow this attack. Once martial law is declared and the military disarms and totally controls America, the Neocon Global Banking Cabal will be completely free to use America’s military to wage never-ending global war. Remember, all wars are banker’s wars. Brace for impact.

      22. Fear porn. Oliver Stone has been conjuring up conspiracies that don’t exist for decades.

        • Smokey, your years of studying sure are appreciated. Saves the truth from being hidden from the light for those who cant read and study and think. You go Girl!
