Crimes committed on the periphery of empire always return to the homeland.
Following this logic, perhaps the pipe bombs mailed to George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Barak Obama are not from a Trump supporter like the media has been implying but from someone who has been on the receiving end of the drone strikes and regime change operations our ruling class uses to discipline the restless natives?
So far none of the pipe bombs have exploded, but that hasn’t stopped the #Resistance and the corporate media from freaking-the-fuck-out.
In fact, it’s probably a good thing that none of the bombs have exploded like the ordinance we’re happy to lob around in the name of freedom and, of course, peace. Imagine if our elite were targeted by the drones and bombers that we use to attack people in Third World countries every single day?
In the reporting on the targets of the pipe bombs, there’s been no mention of the reasons some malcontent might want to attack Obama, Clinton and Soros, though it’s hardly a secret.
Our Nobel Peace President dropped 26,171 bombs in the final year of his presidency, and his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, was so overjoyed by Moammar Gaddafi being sodomized by a bayonet that she cackled–“We came we saw, he died,” on national TV. Soros, despite being depicted by the right as some sort of communist-over-lord for his support of Move On and the Democratic Party, is actually little different that the average neocon with his penchant for regime change and hybrid-warfare via his Open Society Foundation.
The pipe bomb story has had a salutary effect for our Middle-East allies Saudi Arabia and Israel, who are thrilled to see the story of Washington Post writer Jamal Khashoggi, who was brutally murdered and cut to piece on the direct orders of Saudi ruler Mohammad bin Salman, bumped off the front pages.
The pipe bomb story has also had a salutary effect on military/industrial stalwarts like Boeing, Lockheed-Martin and Raytheon, who’ve been overjoyed to see focus shift away the fact that the US is providing weapons, fuel, and targeting intel for our allies the Saudi’s, who’ve been busy bombing buses filled with children in Yemen.
