Ukraine reminder

Participants in 2014 Ukrainian coup confess from Washington’s Blog Posted on November 17, 2017 by Eric Zuesse. Eric Zuesse The overthrow of the democratically elected President of Ukraine in February 2014 was one of the most important geostrategic occurrences during the past century, because it led to the breakaway from Ukraine of the two regions — Crimea and Donbass — that had been the most opposed to the overthrow, and that had voted over 75% for the President who had been overthrown. And those two breakaways from Ukraine were then presented in the U.S.-allied “The West” as having resulted from ‘Russian aggression’, which then became punished, first by economic sanctions against Russia, and then by massive NATO military buildups […]

I fought for ________

I enlisted in the US Air Force to _________ avoid being drafted into the Army, sent to Vietnam and kill complete strangers with whom I had no quarrel, or even any knowledge of. I thought then, and still believe today participating in war at that level would have planted some demons in my mind. Today there is no draft snagging up young men shortly after their 19th birthday. Young folks today have to be inspired other ways to join the USofA Army, Air Force, Marines and Navy. Widespread unemployment that may run around 40% in that demographic certainly helps. The military-industrial-complex sucks over 50% of the annual government spending with one result being a whole lot less money for a […]

how wars are made

Downsize DC is a good website with wonderful activist tools. They also have a newsletter by subscription. The article below is a good example. Learn the history they don’t teach in statist schools How Teddy Roosevelt started the chain of events that led to Pearl Harbor. By Perry Willis Retweet I’m reviewing U.S. military history in the run-up to Veterans Day on November 10. I hope to persuade you of three points… Our “patriotic holidays” need to honor soldiers without mischaracterizing U.S. wars. The claim that U.S. soldiers “defended our freedom” is sweet-sounding but false. Freedom may be what our soldiers wanted to defend, but that’s not how our politicians actually used them. We must restrict the ability of politicians […]

How and why politicians exploit Veterans Day

Why politicians hated Armistice Day but love Veterans Day By Perry Willis Veterans Day will be observed on Friday, November 10th this year. It used to be called Armistice Day, in memory of the moment when the First World War ended on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918. Armistice Day was a valuable holiday! It reminded people of the biggest mistake the political class ever made — a world war fought over nothing! Alas, the politicians could not abide such a reminder of their own folly, and so they changed Armistice Day into something they could exploit — Veterans Day. Whereas Armistice Day highlighted the dangers of militarism and interventionism, politicians now use Veterans […]

war – what is it good for?

Just over four years ago, I watched in shock and dismay as the military-industrial-complex prepared a premeditated, unjustified assault on Syria that could well have triggered WWIII. I was delightfully surprised by the British people who were paying close enough attention to what their masters were doing that they shut it down. I covered that story in great detail with over a dozen links supporting my essay. war drums … silenced? by Ted, on August 31st, 2013 For years The Deep State had been arming, fueling and attacking the Syrian government and people of Syria. The failure of their covert activities inspired a full on military assault … that Russian, Chinese and other governments were likely to find offensive […]

party of peace

  In response to the escalation of threats of warfare by the Donald Trump administration, the Libertarian National Committee adopted the following resolution at its quarterly meeting last weekend: “Resolved, the Libertarian National Committee calls for the immediate U.S. government withdrawal from NATO.” President Trump’s foreign policy seems to depend on which advisor he talked to last … or whatever his Twitter muse may be in the early morning hours. Clearly, the last people he listened to before addressing the nation on Afghanistan last Monday night were his generals. He raised the specter of terrorism to justify killing Taliban, Al Qaida, and ISIS terrorists, saying that he would give the military a free hand. He vowed to maximize economic sanctions, […]

Russia-phobe scam

With the American president increasingly looking a busted flush, Moscow is likely to deliver a forceful response. In the end, it didn’t take long. Just over six months after President Trump assumed office, the Washington establishment has, in the short to […]

insider view of Arabian chaos

A great resource for keeping track of national and international interactions is Paul Craig Roberts. He does, however, have glaring blind spots. Chief among them is his apparent ignorance of The Bilderberg Group, aka The Globalists. The media monopoly, the tiny, inbred pool of electable leaders, the schooling monopoly, the single war party known by two names (D & R) and, of course the source of their world-dominance, their world-wide banking-cartel, money-changer monopoly. Nevertheless, he clearly sees that the Mideast turmoil is not going away quietly. ————————————— From Paul Craig Roberts: … Israel wants Syria and Iran to join Iraq and Libya in American-induced chaos so that Israel can steal the water in southern Lebanon. If Syria and Iran are […]
