The Olympics in London won’t just be a display of the world’s most gifted athletes – but also of the British military

Surface-to-air missiles are being deployed on apartment buildings around the city, the Royal Air Force is threatening to use “lethal force,” and the British Navy’s biggest warships will be patrolling the Thames River. More than 17,000 military personnel – including nearly 12,000 soldiers – will be in the streets for the Olympics. That’s more British soldiers than are currently serving in the Afghanistan – and according to NBC news reports, “it’s the largest British security operation carried out in peacetime.”

The world is in crisis today, with war raging in the Middle East, social unrest in austerity-ravaged Europe, and bankster crimes taking down long-standing democracies across the Western World. These are all symptoms that globalism – AKA the Libertarian’s one-world paradise – is collapsing. And the fact that the world can’t come together – as it does every four years – for the Olympics without the full force of the British military mobilized – is just more evidence that something is rotten in the global landscape.

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
