Understanding the U S War State
I thought this thread probably suitable for the following nugget from Pepe Escobar's FB, which confirms the views of so many other independent journo's.

The below also reflects the old fact that those who are part of the political consensus (trusted mouths/pockets) are allowed to know reality, whereas the rest of we plebs are required to be inundated with the claptrap that is official propaganda and must learn to navigate our own route through those tricky shoals.

James Shea, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Emerging Threats at NATO how lovely is that title? recently gave a talk at the Liberal Club in London on Daesh. Shea, as you all remember, was NATO's spokesman during the NATO war on Yugoslavia in 1999.
After his talk Shea engaged in a debate with a source I very much treasure. The source later gave me the lowdown.
According to Saudi intel, Daesh was invented by the USG in Camp Bacca, remember? - to essentially get rid of the Shi'ite-majority Maliki government.
But then there's the juicy issue of Daesh routing the Iraqi Army on its way to Mosul. The Iraqi Army fled. Daesh operatives then took over ultra-modern weapons that took US instructors from six to twelve months to train the Iraqis in and…surprise! They incorporated the weapons in their arsenals in 24 hours.
So yes, Shea frankly admitted that Petraeus had trained these Sunnis now part of Daesh in Anbar Province in Iraq.
Saudi intel still maintains that these Iraqi Sunnis were not US-trained as Shea confirmed because the Shi'ites in power in Baghdad didn't allow it. Nonsense. The Daesh hard core is indeed a US-trained militia.
True to form, at the end of the debate, Shea went on to blame Russia for absolutely everything that's happening today.
The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.
