Reflections on Iraq, Part IV

If my first reasons for opposing the War were based upon paleoconservative views of how America should deal with foreign entanglements, the second reason is an example of the paradoxes I always confront as a Catholic and an American.  So, while yesterday I was quoting George Washington, today I’m criticizing him.

I sometimes refer to the United States as a nation founded “Of the Masons, for the Masons and By the Masons”. 

Democracy is dangerous, because every democracy eventually gets its Barack Obama.  From today onward, our society is going to descend into either tyranny or anarchy.

The United States followed Washington’s advice, in the modified form of Monroe Doctrine, for over a hundred years, till the two World Wars and the so-called “Cold War.”
By the early 1970s, the US had officially adopted a role that is best described as imperialistic, totally violating Washingtonian principles while validating the fears of those who oppose Freemasonry.  So, instead of the Monroe Doctrine, we now have the Kissinger Doctrine:

Whatever may be done to guard against interruptions of supply and to develop domestic alternatives, the U.S. economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less developed countries.10 That fact gives the U.S. enhanced interest in the political, economic, and social stability of the supplying countries. Wherever a lessening of population pressures through reduced birth rates can increase the prospects for such stability, population policy becomes relevant to resource supplies and to the economic interests of the United States.

Depopulate third world countries so there aren’t enough people to revolt if the United States want to strip them of their resources.

A second consideration *against* the war is that it is very clearly part of a wider agenda that’s been at force explicitly for almost four decades and has been under the surface for a long time.
