Tony Cartalucci: Tyrants Beware, What Goes Around Might Come Around

Bangkok, Thailand, April 25, 2011 - Peddling a policy that includes assassinating the leader of a sovereign nation, besieged under blatantly false pretenses, sets a dangerous precedent that may backfire in the faces of the arrogant men calling for it. Lindsey Graham and John McCain, both of the meddling International Republican Institute implicated in funding and fueling the "Arab Spring" to begin with, have called for the assassination of Libya's Qaddafi and members of his inner circle. The London Telegraph also reported that Foreign Secretary William Hague refused to rule out using US drones to assassinate Qaddafi.

No one will miss these people: The elite should think carefully
before raising the stakes. Nation-states may retaliate in kind
to threats of assassination and growing, naked aggression.

With the US now openly admitting to recruiting, training, funding, and equipping armies of "activists" to go back and subvert their nations' governments, and with China and a growing list of other nations pointing the finger for fueling subversion directly at Washington, the global scope of this operation and the meddling hands behind are exposed for the whole world to see. What comes next will be a series of proxy conflicts of increasing violence. It is quite clear that humanitarian concerns are entirely contrived excuses propelling this global campaign along. As this facade of legitimacy crumbles, the imperialist nature of the aggression becomes more overt and we now see what looks more like the opening salvos of World War III than a "wave of democracy" sweeping the world.

Should Syria fall to Western-funded and fueled subversion, Iran will undoubtedly be next. The stakes for Russia and China will be raised still higher, and Iran itself will be backed into a corner it hasn't been in since the brutal and protracted Iran-Iraq War of the 80s. Should the West succeed in assassinating Qaddafi after this regional campaign of naked aggression, they will open the door for similar calls to be made against them by a world awake to their reckless, gluttonous tyranny.

Nation-states could repay the threat in kind

When the violence escalates, do these leaders in America feel confident enough that the people they supposedly lead will come to their aid when calls are made in turn for their heads? Do they really believe the people of America will be galvanized by foreign nations surgically retaliating against these increasingly unpopular figures? Would the world miss or mourn the loss of the bankers, industrialists, geopolitical power brokers or the myriad of other jackals, rats, and cockroaches that hide in the dark of elitist power? Would the average American, many of whom have never heard their names, even make a whimper in protest? ...
