John le Carre’ is the pen name of an English novelist who wrote some extraordinarily popular spy novels in the 1970s and 1980s. His most famous novel might be Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (A.D. 1974).   His novels were thoughtful, introspective and a celebration of intellect rather than the brute force we see James Bond-type novels and movies.

Mr. le Carre’ reportedly knows something about spying because he was an English spy for many years before he retired to become a novelist.

The following video was made in A.D. 2010 and features Mr. le Carre’ reading an essay on the Iraq war that he’d first written and published in A..D. 2003–just before the time when America actually invaded Iraq.  The essay’s title is “The United States of America has Gone Mad”.  The essay is a little long.  A little pedantic in parts.  And yet, if you’ll take the time to view this video, you’ll see Mr. le Carre’s capacity for prescience was brilliant.  He could see where America was heading back in A.D. 2003.  In retrospect, you’ll probably agree that le Carre’ was right and wonder, Why, by God, didn’t America pay attention?

You can’t say we weren’t warned.  As I watched the video, I felt a sense of lament.  But I also wondered if America can really be so freaking stupid–or if God, Himself, has closed most Americans’ ears so they simply can’t hear the truth and are therefore destined to pay a terrible price.

    Hi Adask,

    Boy, I sure do agree with you about how stupid many people are. Have you ever thought about them addressing a Con-Con as using our laws against us? Because I, believe that is what they are doing in Congress. And now claiming they are addressing our freedom of speach. First, they stop us from having a hearing, now they can say were out of line, and put us in the feme camps without a hearing. Why are many of the attorneys not speaking up on this issue? Obama, is violation the constitution, and addressing a Con-Con by using our laws.

    Let me know what you think.

    Michelle

      A minority are getting smarter. We should be grateful that anyone is getting smarter. But most people don’t appear to have the time or inclination to improve their levels of understanding. Those who seem destined or determined to fight for their right to enjoy the bliss of ignorance are at least inexplicable–and perhaps intolerable.

    6% allegedly believe the MEDIA is “trustworthy”…

    A bipartisan group of senators on Thursday introduced a new resolution which says that the United States would back Israel militarily if the Jewish State were to attack Iran in self-defense.

    The resolution was introduced by Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and is co-sponsored by 15 Senators, including Robert Menendez (D-New Jersey), Marco Rubio (R-Florida), Kelly Ayotte (R-New Hampshire), John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Chuck Schumer (D-New York).

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/us-politics/9898856/Jews-face-volatile-synergy-of-hate-in-Europe-Republicans-warn.html

    The resolution declares that the United States has a vital national interest in and unbreakable commitment to, ensuring the existence, survival, and security of the State of Israel; reaffirms the United States support for Israel’s right to self-defense; and urges that if Israel is compelled to take military action in self-defense, the United States will stand with Israel and provide diplomatic, military, and economic support in its defense of its territory, people, and existence.

    Speaking during a press conference on Capitol Hill Thursday, Graham said the resolution is necessary to show Israel that the U.S. will support it if it decides to use military force against the Iranian regime.

    probably the same 6% that believe that the Zionist Terrorist “STATE” called erroneously ISRAEL

    is our best friend and ally…

    A group of American business and political leaders are building a pro-Israel media “war room” in Washington, D.C. The group will be called “Emet”—which in Hebrew means “truth.” Emet will try to address biased media coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and also make the case that the conflict, while serious and important, pales in comparison to the larger geo-strategic threat posed to the United States and the West by Iran and Iraq, both of whom are trying to build and/or acquire weapons of mass destruction. Funding Emet is Leonard Abramson; he sold U.S. Healthcare to Aetna in the mid-1990s for $8.9 billion. Abramson has recruited a powerful board of directors, including Bernie Marcus, founder of Home Depot; Les Wexner, founder of The Limited; Edgar Bronfman Sr., who once owned Seagram’s; and Lou Ranieri, a major Wall Street player who now co-owns one of Israel’s largest banks. Also joining the board are Jeane Kirkpatrick, former U.S. Ambassador to the UN, and Jack Kemp.

      Re Isreal
      Is it just a coincidence that Christ & the 12 disciples =13, & there were 13 original States(colonies) & ALL of the people in each State called themselves “Christians” (followers of Christ) & had the Book that contained the “teachings of Christ” aka The Holy Bible? Seems like at least a part of Israel to me although there ARE other true Israelites in “Israel.” And, all over the world,generally speaking.

        in fact there are no Israelites in the “Jewish” state …

        the “Jewish” state is a manifestation of inverted logic…

        and a stool sculpture deity cult compound for “PROSELYTES” to the Satanic “Religion” called Talmudic Judaism which is an anti-Israelite “Belief” system…

    This video is like finding a needle in a haystack, & this is an understatement !!! Still, Judah was a son of Jacob/Israel, & I think his offspring comprise A Tribe of Israel. There are many “Tribes of Indians & for an example, all Cherokee Indians ARE Indians, BUT not ALL Indians are Cherokee Indians.Ther are many “tribes” of Indians,right ? OR,wrong?
    WOW !!! THANK YOU FOR THIS VIDEO !!!!!!!
