WAR ON MUSLIMS; Chuck Hagel, ‘OLD ORDER’ In Middle East Disappearing’, US Helping Shape ‘NEW ORDER’ With ‘Coalitions Of Common Interests’
‘The OLD ORDER in the Middle East is disappearing, and what will replace it remains unknown… the US will remain engaged in helping shape the NEW ORDER, but we must engage wisely…” – Chuck Hagel
(AE) – US Secretary Of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a speech at the Washington Institute For Near East Policy (WINEP); an incredibly anti Muslim, pro War On Iran, pro War On Syria; think tank founded by the anti Muslim warmongers at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). So it’s crystal clear exactly who Hagel was addressing.
Hagel’s idea of the US helping shape the “NEW ORDER” in the Middle East qualifies as a “NEW WORLD ORDER” quote considering that the reshaping of the Middle East and the destruction of Islam are requirements for the “NEW WORLD ORDER” to come fully into view (borrowing from Bush Sr.’s September 11, 1991 speech).
Obama’s appointment of “NEW WORLD ORDER” advocates (ie, cult members) to the two highest positions in his administration, Secretary Of Defense and Secretary Of State, shows what drives his foreign policy decisions. John Kerry’s “NEW WORLD ORDER” dreams can be viewed in my previous article here.
We must now wonder… does Hagel’s “coalitions of common interests” include Russia??? I believe it does, as stated in my previous article here.

The US Defense Secretary says the old order in the Middle East is disappearing, although it’s still not clear what will replace it. Chuck Hagel stressed the conflict in Syria is becoming increasingly more sectarian and extremist, with the country’s collapse now more real than ever. But, while some US lawmakers make fresh calls for military intervention, Washington’s taken a backseat.
2013.5.10 Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel; ‘Political, Not Military’ Solutions Needed In Middle East (AFP, rawstory.com):
The problems that plague the Middle East, including Iran’s nuclear ambitions and Syria’s civil war, require “political, not military” solutions, US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said.
Saying the “old order” was vanishing in the region, Hagel stressed in a speech that the United States would work to promote democratic reform while bearing in mind the “limitations” of American power.
Although the Pentagon chief made clear that Washington had not ruled out potential military action against Iran or Syria, his remarks highlighted President Barack Obama’s cautious stance on resorting to armed force in the volatile region.
He said that regional challenges including “the nuclear challenge posed by Iran, dangerous instability in Syria, or the continuing threat of al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups” must be addressed through “coalitions of common interests,” including Israel and other allies in the region.
“A common thread woven into the Middle East fabric is that the most enduring and effective solutions to the challenges facing the region are political, not military,” Hagel told an audience at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
“America’s role in the Middle East is to continue to help influence and shape the course of events — using diplomatic, economic, humanitarian, intelligence, and security tools in coordination with our allies,” he said.
Arab uprisings had shaken the established political landscape in the Middle East, he said.
“The old order in the Middle East is disappearing, and what will replace it remains unknown.
“There will continue to be instability in the region [Because you're causing it. - Joel] as this process plays out and we all must adjust accordingly.”
Prospects for stability in the longer run would hinge on the outcome of political transitions in Egypt, Libya and Syria, said Hagel, who traveled to the region last month.
“The best hope for long-term stability relies on countries like Egypt, Libya, and Syria making transitions to democratic rule,” he said.
The United States would “remain engaged in helping shape the new order, but we must engage wisely,” he said.
“This will require a clear understanding of our national interests, our limitations, and an appreciation for the complexities of this unpredictable, contradictory, yet hopeful region of the world,” he said.
The war in Syria was turning “sectarian” and the possibility the state would break apart was “increasing,” he said.
The war was putting Syria’s “stockpiles of chemical weapons and advanced conventional weapons at risk, and the escalation of violence threatens to spill across its borders,” he said.
But Hagel struck a restrained tone on Syria and did not reiterate Obama’s declared “red line” warning Damascus not to use its chemical weapons.
The Obama administration has faced renewed calls for intervention after US intelligence agencies said the Syrian regime probably used chemical weapons on a small-scale. But the White House says the spy services are still investigating the allegations.
After the speech, when asked about Syria, Hagel said the administration would not take any action until it had all the facts and alluded to the intelligence disaster in the run-up to the 2003 Iraq war.
“It’s fair to say that we’re all probably a little wiser today than we were before and when we take action, there is always the reality — that you accept — that there may be consequences and unintended consequences may come from that,” he said.
“There are also consequences and unintended consequences that come from inaction,” he added.
In answering the question on Syria, Hagel joked about his outspoken style before he took over at the Pentagon in February.
He said now he had to watch his words more carefully as he was no longer a senator and he couldn’t “speak as irresponsibly as I would like.”
MCCONNELL SCANDAL; Strategy Session To Attack Ashley Judd’s MENTAL HEALTH, Jesse Benton Involved, FBI Called In By McConnell
War monger Mitch McConnell, the man who wants to preemptively attack Iran using “overwhelming force”, to satisfy his Zionist desires and AIPAC friends, and who also suggests giving his supposed political enemy Obama “Unilateral Powers”, has been embarrassed by some leaked audio of his campaign strategists at work.
Rather than address the issue McConnell’s campaign is trying to spin this into a “Nixonian tactics to bug campaign headquarters” recording scandal, which it is not, since the leak is obviously from someone inside his own campaign.
I suggest this is just standard political demonization of an opponent practiced by both parties, however, it’s a very interesting look behind the scenes at how they are now focusing on opponent’s Blogs, Facebook, Twitter, family history, mental history, anything to paint their opponent in a bad light. This is also a great example of why the government should NOT be allowed to data mine its own citizens, for this inevitably leads to an elite power using the collected data to blackmail any political opponents.
Interestingly this also involves “Patriot Movement” sellout and traitor Jesse Benton, and also the sellout Rand Paul.

AIPAC (The American Israel Public Affairs Committee) spends at least $60 million per year influencing US policy for Israel. While this is illegal foreign political funding, they get around it by using duel citizen status, and through pay offs and coercion. Please do your research on this group and how much it costs the uSA.
Can guarantee that Joe (Zionist) Lieberman would strangle this woman with his bare hands if he could!
Lee Whitnum has the crazy idea that American politicians should put America first, and she certainly isn’t shy about telling her political opponents as much. Whitnum’s courage in exposing facts about AIPAC and the Israeli occupation/apartheid in the face of such adversity has landed her on the Best American Politicians in Recent History

The battle for justice in the Middle East is our battle. It is part of the vast, global battle against the 1 percent. It is about living rather than dying. It is about communicating rather than killing. It is about love rather than hate. It is part of the great battle against the corporate forces of death that reign over us—the fossil fuel industry, the weapons manufacturers, the security and surveillance state, the speculators on Wall Street, the oligarchic elites who assault our poor, our working men and women, our children, one in four of whom depend on food stamps to eat, the elites who are destroying our ecosystem with its trees, its air and its water and throwing into doubt our survival as a species.
What is being done in Gaza, the world’s largest open-air prison, is a pale reflection of what is slowly happening to the rest of us. It is a window into the rise of the global security state, our new governing system that the political philosopher Sheldon Wolin calls “inverted totalitarianism.” It is a reflection of a world where the powerful are not bound by law, either on Wall Street or in the shattered remains of the countries we invade and occupy, including Iraq with its hundreds of thousands of dead. And one of the greatest purveyors of this demented ideology of violence for the sake of violence, this flagrant disregard for the rule of domestic and international law, is the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC.
I spent seven years in the Middle East. I was the Middle East bureau chief for The New York Times. I lived for two of those seven years in Jerusalem. AIPAC does not speak for Jews or for Israel. It is a mouthpiece for right-wing ideologues, some of whom hold power in Israel and some of whom hold power in Washington, who believe that because they have the capacity to war wage they have a right to wage war, whose loyalty, in the end, is not to the citizens of Israel or Palestine or the United States but the corporate elites, the defense contractors, those who make war a business, those who have turned ordinary Palestinians, Israelis and Americans, along with hundreds of millions of the world’s poor, into commodities to exploit, repress and control.
We have not brought freedom, democracy and the virtues of Western civilization to the Muslim world. We have brought state terrorism, massive destruction, war and death. There is no moral distinction between a drone strike and the explosion of the improvised explosive device, between a suicide bombing and a targeted assassination. We have used the iron fist of the American military to implant our oil companies in Iraq, occupy Afghanistan and ensure that the Muslim world remains submissive and compliant. We have supported a government in Israel that has carried out egregious war crimes in Lebanon and Gaza and is daily stealing larger and larger portions of Palestinian land. We have established a network of military bases, some the size of small cities, in Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Kuwait, and we have secured basing rights in the Gulf states of Bahrain, Qatar, Oman and the United Arab Emirates. We have expanded our military operations to Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Egypt, Algeria and Yemen. And no one believes, except perhaps us, that we have any intention of leaving.
Netanyahu: ‘MY SUPREME RESPONSIBILITY AS PRIME MINISTER OF ISRAEL IS TO ENSURE THAT ISRAEL REMAINS THE MASTER OF ITS FATE’
BY: Adam Kredo – March 5, 2012 11:56 am
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told President Obama that Israel would decide for itself whether to strike Iran.
“My supreme responsibility as prime minister of Israel is to ensure that Israel remains the master of its fate,” Netanyahu told Obama.
In a sit-down earlier today with the president in the Oval Office, Netanyahu pushed back against the administration’s repeated attempts to dissuade Israel from attacking Iran. “Israel must reserve the right to defend itself and after all, that’s the very purpose of the Jewish state to, restore to the Jewish people control of our destiny,” said Netanyahu, who is meeting with the president in advance of his speech later today before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual policy conference.
Israel reserves the right to strike Iran if need be, Netanyahu said.
Obama, in a speech to AIPAC on Sunday morning, chastised those engaged in “loose talk of war” with Iran and urged for a policy of diplomacy towards Iran, which continues to enrich uranium and is suspected of clandestinely building a nuclear weapon.
The administration has also been pressuring Israel to hold off on an attack against Iran’s nuclear sites, arguing that economic sanctions require time to take hold.
AIPAC Executive Howard Kohr flatly rejected this assumption earlier today, when he told conference delegates that the U.S. “must increase the pressures on the mullahs to the point where they fear failure to comply will lead to their downfall.”
In advance of today’s meeting with Netanyahu, Obama has faced renewed criticism from pro-Israel groups over his handling of the U.S.-Israel relationship, including the release of Daylight a documentary produced by the Emergency Committee for Israel highlighting his administration’s strained ties with the closest U.S. ally in the Middle East.
Iran has offered access to UN Inspectors. They are NOT a threat unless they are attacked first. Goldman Sachs does not seem too worried about an attack, and Z – BIG has spoken out against it. Will the AIPAC few take the many to War? We still believe it is a Bluff, but if this resolution is approved, we may be too far gone to turn back…
