The Godfather saga is clear on one point: the world of the mob has no exit.
Michael Corleone takes his family deeper and deeper into destruction.
Why? First of all, the Corleone life is crime. They cheat, lie, steal, intimidate and murder. No matter how attractive they are, that’s what they do. It’s the source of their wealth.
From that foundation, they venture out into the world and they find enemies. Competing families. They can try to broker peace and sign treaties, or they can attack.
Michael chooses to attack. He has his reasons. They make practical and emotional sense. But eternal war is just that. There is no turning back.
It may seem to Michael that he’s being “pulled back in,” over and over, but it’s his choice and his game and his territory and his actions that shape his fate and bring about the death of his family.
There are always new enemies, and old ones, too. Sollozzo, Barzini, and behind him, Hyman Roth, the kingpin. And Roth isn’t enough. The war has to be taken to the Vatican and its money machine.
Michael is like one of the late Roman emperors, wielding the sword at the end of the line, after the nation had already sealed its fate by opting for imperial empire and conquest. The lethal blowback has already been guaranteed.
Michael would have seen a Syria as an enemy purely on the basis that the natural gas pipeline, if stalled, if canceled, would deal a blow to Russia, his foe. Therefore, attack.
The imperial mindset automatically multiplies enemies.
The federal government of the United States can squirm, feint, dodge, preach, and pontificate. But it has set itself up as a crime family. All that remain are the details.
There will be war and there will be enemies.
The elasticity of conquest has limits. At some point, the connections snap and the structure and the supply lines collapse.
“Sir, here is a blueprint of the entire Middle East. You can apply all this data to Africa as well. We can destabilize virtually every nation in the Middle East. We can set ethnic group against ethnic group. We can topple dictators. We can bring on long nights of chaos. For a while, we can let the home-grown crazies rule there. Then we can step in and take over. With our elite financial partners, we can own those countries by ‘rescuing’ them…”
“We can destroy Barzini and the five crime families. We can take over New York and whole east coast and expand our activities into Las Vegas. We can finance legitimate businesses. No one will be able to challenge us…”
Sitting in the wings, waiting, is America’s greatest enemy. These men appear to be allies. In certain ventures, they are. But they see farther. They know more. They’re more calm. They are the Globalists, and the destruction of this country is on their planetary agenda. They see the US as the US government sees Iraq or Libya. They want America to go to war, again and again. They understand how war weakens a country, destabilizes it, bankrupts it, saps its spirit.
Like the forces of evil in Italy, who were waiting for Michael Corleone to make his move and expand his empire into that region, so they could spring their trap, the Globalists are watching the machinations of the US government, are drawing it closer to the flame, where the temperature burns the moth who is obsessed by the false light.
