Preparing for global war

Hello, this is Darrell Castle with today’s Castle Report. This is Friday the 21st day of June in the year of our Lord 2024. I will be talking about how the world seems to be arming up for global war which now appears more and more likely and less and less avoidable. The apparently unstoppable movement toward world war is very reminiscent of the start of World War I as the world celebrates the 110th anniversary of the start of World War I this August.

Global war in Ukraine

Once again, I find myself talking about war which is ongoing and threatening to spread out of control. The U.S. in particular seems intent on making the war in Ukraine into a global war against Russia and Russia is lining up its partners who are willing to sign on to resist the financial control of the U.S. and its Western allies. Old friends like Thailand and even NATO member Turkey have applied to join the BRICS. Putin was in North Korea to meet with the little rocket man this week, and they signed a mutual defense agreement.

Yes, there are ominous trends happening in the world which any sane leader would pay attention to but in the West, it appears that few, if any, are listening. In the Middle East Israel is fighting on two fronts as hundreds of missiles and rockets rain down on northern Israel. A broad, vicious, and very dangerous war is in the process of getting underway against the Iranian sponsored terrorist group Hezbollah, as hundreds have already died.

In Ukraine the United States has a proxy or ally if you prefer, which is led by a president who refused to allow elections to be held and refuses to leave office after his term expired. Mr. Zelensky is therefore illegitimate, or if you prefer the term, a dictator. He is what the Democrats in the United States have accused Donald Trump of being.

Putin puts the West on notice

Mr. Putin tells us that the longer the range of U.S. missiles being fired into Russia the deeper the buffer zone between Ukraine and Russia will have to be. In other words, the missiles accomplish nothing positive and have many negative results. The missiles and any other weapons sent to Ukraine cannot resurrect the depleted and dead Ukrainian army so it seems to me to be an excuse to involve NATO in a broader war and an excuse for NATO troops in Ukraine. Let’s find a way to make it worse if we possibly can and never seek peace.

If that were to happen the French seem to be the chosen ones to lead the effort. Words fail me in my efforts to convey to you how stupid and pointless this all is. I’m sitting here reviewing what happened in 1914 all over again. Didn’t the world just go through this 110 years ago and didn’t it learn anything. Well, the French have a violent history with Russia don’t they, having spent some time there in 1812 just 212 years ago this month so I guess history is repeating itself or politicians are repeating the same stupid mistakes.

They didn’t learn from Napoleon’s experience

The last time the French army went into Russia it sent a Grand Army of 680,000 men and about 26,000 of them were able to return to France alive so it seems the French are slow learners. Despite the French people’s efforts to reign in their out-of-control politicians nothing seems able to slow the egotistical drive toward war of Emmanuel Macron. In recent parliamentary elections Marine Le Pen’s conservative party beat Macron’s pro mass immigration, pro war, pro there is no such thing as French people party, but that doesn’t seem to have stopped his drive to get France into a world war.

President Biden just made a deal with Ukraine to supply funding and weapons for 10 years. There is absolutely no advantage or benefit to the United States in the agreement whatsoever but that doesn’t stop the rush toward suicide. I suppose it’s a kind of insurance policy in case Trump wins the election so that his hands would be tied and the madness would continue.

Global war disadvantage: exposing your best weapons to the enemy

It seems pretty simple to me that the more weapons the U.S. sends to Ukraine the less that it has available for its own defense and the less it has for the other wars it is fomenting around the world. Another thing about U.S. shipments to Ukraine and Israel as well is that adversaries have been able to examine the high-tech cutting-edge U.S. smart weapons and develop counter measures for them. The result is that the weapons are not so cutting edge and not so smart anymore because they have been reengineered and tested by our enemies.

For example, the long-range missiles fired into Russia have allowed Russia to figure out how to jam the guidance systems coming from U.S. satellites and so their targeting is no longer as accurate as before. The same is true in reverse regarding the U.S. Patriot anti-missile defense system and the Iron Dome system supplied to Israel. The Russians and Iranians have hypersonic missiles and if they are not truly hypersonic what difference does it make. The point is that they are getting through and several of the defense batteries have been destroyed.

U.S. politicians divorced from reality

This comes at a time when it appears that U.S. politicians have lost touch with reality. If so, that would be very appropriate with all the videos and audio recordings evidencing President Biden’s obvious lack of hold on reality. The U.S. media, including his minister of propaganda at the press corps, tell us that we are not seeing this and that its just fake. For example, when he was in Italy for the G-7 conference and all the heads of state were watching a skydiving exhibit arranged by Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, and he wondered off from the group like some inattentive lost child.

Prime Minister Meloni casually, without attracting attention, just went over and took him by the arm and brought him back to the group. My opinion of her, already high, went up about 100% by the way she handled the situation. She then went on to defy pressure from Biden to include statements supporting abortion on demand as well as pride month in the G-7 statements about the conference. No, she said, we will not do such anti-family things in Italy as it would be “profoundly wrong “so good on you Prime Minister.

The Petrodollar won’t renew

This all comes at a time when the U.S. has $35 trillion of debt up from $5.6 trillion in 1999 so in about 25 years it has added about $30 trillion. The interest this year is predicted to finally approach or even exceed the bloated trillion-dollar defense budget so a good dose of reality would serve us well in Washington. To grease the wheels of our decline even more on June 9 the 50-year deal with Saudi Arabia commonly known as the Petro Dollar deal expired and the Saudis said they would not renew it.

Simply put the deal allowed the U.S. to export its dollars and the Saudis to export their oil. If you wanted to buy Saudi Oil, and everyone did, you had to use U.S. dollars for the purchase. The Saudis would then use the dollars to purchase U.S. Treasury Bonds thus continuing the cycle to infinity and beyond. The added incentive for the Saudis was that the U.S. would use its military to keep the Saudi Royal Family in power and off the backs of Israel. To emphasize the importance of the deal it was probably, but I admit I’m guessing, the reason the U.S. attacked Iraq and Afghanistan rather than Saudi Arabia after 9-11 since almost all the hijackers were Saudis. One doesn’t go attacking a nation that is a major holder of its debt.

Global war? How about war at home?

Everything the U.S. does now costs a lot more than it costs the people they do it to. For example, the U.S. and Uk Navies have been fighting the Houthis in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden in an effort to keep shipping lanes open. The primitive Houthi tribes, supplied with missiles and drones by Iran, have proven incredibly resistant to annihilation. According to reports of the U.S. military more than $1 billion has been expended in munitions alone. The navy has conducted bombing strikes inside Yemen but I get the feeling that if the U.S. Navy dropped a nuclear bomb the desert Houthis would crawl out of the rubble with an anti-ship missile.

Remember that every time President Biden has some new “gun control” measure pending he comments on the idea that arms were necessary to the founders to reign in an out-of-control government. In other words, to resist tyranny guns are necessary and a right of Americans. He always gives the same response he gave the other day just a little slurred. If you want to fight the government you can’t do it with guns, you need F-15’s and nuclear weapons.

The Afghanistan withdrawal

Well, Mr. President I have to point out that after 20 years of war you offered an unconditional surrender of American forces and its weapons to a bunch of primitive cave dwellers in Afghanistan. They had no F-15’s and no nuclear weapons just their guts and blood but they drove the U.S. powerful, high-tech military out of their country. The Houthis have proven to be made of the same stuff. The Red Sea is still a deadly corridor and many companies are avoiding it because of those primitive tribes, with their gunboats and missiles as well as some Iranian drones.

That story of Joe Biden’s lack of understanding of what the modern world is like is illustrative of what the U.S. government has apparently come to believe and through its captive media has been able to convince the American people of. The story is that the U.S. is invincible and can strut around the world provoking nuclear armed countries with impunity. As a result, the U.S. has reacted to its lost war in Ukraine in two ways. The first by threatening to send NATO troops with the French as the lead cannon fodder. The 2nd is to supply ever longer-range missiles to hit deeper into Russia, I suppose to provoke Russia to an attack on NATO thus justifying something they apparently already intend to do.

The latest NDAA

To keep all this madness going and to keep the plates in the air for a few more days the U.S. House, last Friday or one week ago passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) by a vote of 217-199 largely, but not totally, along party lines. The Republican majority managed to get several amendments added in an effort to prevent some of the social engineering being conducted in the military right now. Most Democrats voted against the bill due to the conservative amendments and most Republicans voted in favor so we will see what the senate does with it very soon.

Continuing the theme of our title and in preparation for global war, the bill also contains an interesting new section that might be of interest to anyone between the ages of 18 and 26. Most people apparently don’t know this but all-American males are required to register for the draft when they turn 18. Most people just ignore the requirement and I would guess that many don’t even know about it. Apparently, the Democrats are anticipating a big global war because a Democrat Amendment to the NDAA passed by voice vote.

Global war needs a draft

Section 531. Selective Service System: Automatic Registration. Sec.3. (a)(1) Except as otherwise provided in this title, every male citizen of the United States, and every other male person residing in the United States, between the ages of 18 and 26, shall be automatically registered under this Act by the Director of the Selective Service System.

So, if the bill passes in its current form Congress will take steps toward automatic conscription of your children. The new law will automatically register them so they can’t just ignore the requirement. They will be notified in writing that they have been registered and are required to provide date of birth, address, social security account number, phone number, and email address. Congress wants your children to know that wars of stupidity and wars of aggression have consequences and those consequences might just be their lives.

There are currently more than 16 million eligible males in this automatic registration and if it is extended to females as some members of congress advocate there would be over 32 million. About 1.5 million undocumented immigrants are also subject to this new law so perhaps they could be persuaded to return across the border rather than be conscripted to fight an unnecessary, debt funded, stupid, pointless war that can only end badly and has no upside except the stock prices of defense contractors.

Conclusion

In conclusion, I am indebted to Dennis Kucinich for much of the information on the automatic registration section. Dennis has been out of Congress for 10 or 12 years I believe, but he is running again in Ohio as an independent.

Finally, folks, I close this Castle report with a quote from President Biden’s recent D-Day speech quoted from Politico, “The price of unchecked tyranny is the blood of the young and the brave.” Well, yes indeed Mr. President, you have never spoken truer words.

At least that’s the way I see it.
