America and NATO have done a very bad thing, a perplexing thing–they have blurred the lines between war and peace, by turning “humanitarian intervention” into a tool of aggression. It is now logical to view all American humanitarian aid, in all of its forms, as the first stage of aggression, America’s foot in the door to meddle in the affairs of national government. On a sliding scale, with national subversion (under the cover of humanitarian intervention) on one end, and full-scale superpower “blitzkrieg” on the other, we can see the outlines of the modern distortion of humanitarian aid into a tool of war-making in a simple line, depicting levels of American military aggression.
All aspects of the graph are describing the same phenomenon, the process of hostile regime change, using the State Dept. and all the sub-organizations that it has spawned, as tools of subversion available to undermine those “rogue” governments who dare to oppose domination by the US military. NATO uses the chain of NGOs under its control, with those State-controlled private organizations (non-governmental organizations), to undermine governments slowly, though noisily, as we have witnessed in all of the “Arab Spring” revolutions. For those governments which represent tougher “nuts” to crack, like Pakistan and Iran, “limited warfare” is used, varying from low-level combat to intensive psychological operations. For even tougher regimes than this, such as Yemen, Syria, or Libya, proxy forces are used underneath a Western air shield, to wage full-scale war, under guidance from NATO tacticians.

“Protest beyond the law is not a departure from democracy; it is absolutely essential to it.”—Howard Zinn
“Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them.”—Frederick Douglass
The United States corporate government today has become what Frantz Fanon, over five decades earlier, accurately described, as a “monster,” permeated with “taints, sickness, and inhumanity.” Its’ much touted ‘democracy’ is in reality the very height of hypocrisy both inside this nation and abroad.
Walking into any “court” of late one might have a distinct impression that one has walked into a monarch's domain. The rule of law only applies at the discretion of the monarch. And that would be the judge sitting in that particular court.
