thanks for the relatively reasonable overview on this topic,something we dont get enough of ,if at all from the so-called mainstream media.

the only things missing are mentions of this govts and Natos provocative actions in the Ukraine including unseating the elected president, a deeper discussion of the kneejerk behaviors towards any country that dares to chart its own course that some american official considers a "challenge" to "our"(read:corporate) interests when in reality the crimea and the south china sea have virtually nothing to do with Main St.usa - the part of our country most in need of our attentions.

I appreciate your mention of the field day(s) in store for the military-corporate complex. this amounts to an urgent reminder for the 99% : if u loved our budget/deficit/war/killing spending since 9-11 you will be in heaven(literally and probably figuratively) over whats to come in the near future.

fyi: did u know that the CIA (aka Corporatocracy In Action) has caused the killing of over 6 million human beings from 1947-2003 ? this was done in our name. our tax dollars at work! repeal the 1947 NSA act and shut down this part of our system. we will never have a constitutional republic until that happens.
