52. We're in the cookbook. And they're into culling the herd.

Culling the herd

Everything you can imagine is real --Pablo Picasso

In 1974, a year after orchestrating a mass terror bombing of Cambodia -- after being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize -- Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and his National Security Council completed National Security Study Memo 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests. This document, whose sharp edges are dulled by page after leaden page of how to reduce overpopulation in the Third World through birth control and other population-reduction programs, was classified until 1989, but was almost immediately accepted as US policy, and remains the US blueprint for ethnic cleansing today.

It is difficult to imagine the staggering number of innocent humans who have perished through war or famine as a direct result of Kissingers half-century obsession with, and lust for, genocide. Its even more difficult to imagine the cruel indifference with which Kissinger, and those like him in positions of political and corporate power -- the elite -- continue to plan the elimination of millions, even billions. All under the guise of national security, or to spread freedom . . . democracy . . .

Kissinger targeted a number of key countries whose populations, he said, must be curtailed and controlled lest they gain economic, political and military strength, and thus threaten US strategic interests. Depopulation should be the highest priority of foreign policy towards the Third World, Kissinger said, because the US economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less developed countries.

Then, as now, any nation refusing to surrender its natural resources was an ominous threat to our national security and was dealt with initially through birth control and other population-reduction programs such as food rationing. But that was too slow for Kissinger, for Brent Scowcroft who replaced Kissinger as national security adviser and was put in charge of thinning out the Third World population, and for his eager enabler, CIA Director George H.W. Bush who trotted like a love-starved puppy at Kissingers heels for decades.

At first, they used food as an instrument of national power to coerce the dumb masses to stop copulating and populating, and then as a deadly weapon because widespread famine not only dealt death quicker, but it was cost-effective. And it made more sense. Like Kissinger said, To give food aid to a country just because they (sic) are starving is a pretty weak reason.

If we could imagine the suffering endured by victims of such perverse inhumanity, we might feel a twinge of outrage or, as George Washington so succinctly put it, a little spark of celestial fire called conscience. Or not. Perhaps we are so far removed from reality because our minds cannot grasp the horror of that reality. Those who seek to destroy the denizens of this planet are totally without compassion or remorse. They are grotesque mutants who kill indiscriminately in their relentless drive for world conquest and domination.

Were it not for all the money and all the power, I could easily think they deluded or blinded themselves by patriotism. You know, pretending the problem was a liberal President who believed in Justice for all, including brown people and the rest of us Untermenschen.
