The number one target of America’s enemies has always been the U.S. defense budget.
While the U.S. maintains the world’s most powerful military, America’s main enemies Russia, China, Cuba, Iran, Syria, North Korea, Vietnam, Venezuela, Nicaragua and their socialist, terrorist and Islamic allies around the world, are severely constrained in their plans for world domination. While they work to subvert America’s interests and allies at every opportunity, they must must be subtle and not too confrontational.
Certainly America’s numerous enemies dare not even think of attacking the continental US. Though they might possibly win, the risks would be great and the price horrendous.
Before America can be brought to its knees, the country must be bankrupted and defense spending severely reduced. That is the game-plan now being successfully carried out by America’s numerous internal enemies, from the White house, down to street level “peace” activists.
While America is pre-occupied with her runaway debt and perpetually looming government shutdowns, America’s enemies are seizing the opportunity to drive home their message.
Since the election of Barack Obama, the communists and Islamists who lead the U.S. peace movement, have de-emphasized the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and even Libya, in order not to overly embarrass their “friend,” the president.
Instead the “peaceniks” have shifted focus to attacking U.S. defense spending per se. The new “line” is to push for cuts to the defense budget in order to spend more on social services at home. Even some conservatives have swallowed aspects of this new radical argument.
Judith LeBlanc with Palestinian Terrorist Leader Yasser Arafat, 2002
Judith LeBlanc, is a vice-chair of the Communist Party USA and chairs its Peace and Solidarity Commission – the body charged with running the U.S. “peace movement” and liaising with foreign revolutionary movements. From 2005-2008, LeBlanc was the National Co-chair of United for Peace and Justice – an organization that she helped found. Currently, LeBlanc is the national field organizer for Peace Action, the country’s largest grassroots peace organization with 100,000 members across the country.
In April 2010, LeBlanc gave an interview entitled, Building a New Peace Movement, an Interview with Judith LeBlanc to the Communist Party’s Political Affairs, in which she explained the new role of the peace movement.
I believe that there are two trajectories for the peace movement. There is going to be a peace movement, a small one in size but continuing to be vocal, to bring all the troops home from Afghanistan and Iraq, but there is going to another kind of peace movement that is more centered on making the links between the economic crisis and militarism, in effect a new kind of movement that is more, in a basic sense, an anti-militarism movement, one that is taking up some of the basic cornerstones of US foreign policy in the longer term and in the bigger picture…
The new peace movement has to find ways to help people understand the impact wars and war spending is having on our lives and on the spending priorities of the federal government. Now 57 percent of the federal discretionary spending is on preparation for war or wars, for the military budget. We need a fundamental shift in spending priorities. So the new peace movement that needs to be built is really a peace and justice movement. It is about making the connections between the sacrifices that go on in our communities, the cuts in human services, and waging a battle to take the money from where it is going now, to begin to reduce spending on the military budget and move that money into funding education, health care, and infrastructure rebuilding.
This is a cynical , but clever move by the communists. By taking attention off Afghanistan and Iraq, the “peace movement” and the communists can spare their ally, president Barack Obama, considerable grief.
Instead of attacking the president over his continuing wars, the communists can marshal “peace” and leftist support behind the President’s high spending domestic agenda. It makes sense to focus on the “guns versus butter” argument at a time when most Americans are focused more on economic survival than national security issues.
The communist-led “Fifth Columnists” of the U.S. “peace movement” have analyzed the situation well. They have a “window of opportunity” to destroy U.S. military dominance once and for all – to make their own country vulnerable to enemy attack. They do not intend to waste it.
