poking the bear

from Paul Craig Roberts Another Step Toward Armageddon “…It is reckless and irresponsible for Washington to make such a decision in the wake of years of aggressive actions taken against Russia. The Clinton criminal regime broke Washington’s promise that NATO would not move one inch to the East. The George W. Bush criminal regime pulled out of the ABM Treaty and changed US war doctrine to elevate the use of nuclear weapons from retaliation to first strike. The Obama criminal regime launched a frontal propaganda attack on Russia with crazed Hillary’s denunciation of President Putin as “the new Hitler.” In an effort to evict Russia from its naval base in Crimea, the criminal Obama regime overthrew the Ukrainian government during […]

Despite Setbacks, Liberty Will Prevail in 2018

from The Campaign For Liberty by Ron Paul January 02, 2018 Happy New Year! We always approach a new year with anticipation, hope, and also some worries. Last year was one of the strangest political years I have seen in some time. A new Republican president spent his first year pursuing more or less the same foreign policy as his Democratic predecessor and the Democratic Party spent the year looking under every rock in the US for a “Russian connection” or any other reason to see him impeached over it. The neocon-dominated foreign policy establishment on both the Left and Right were so furious that candidate Trump dared suggest we could get along with our “enemies” overseas that they jumped […]

WAR turns sweet 16

It has been 16 years since their staged events of Sept 11, 2001 provided cover for The War Party to openly assault North Africa and The Mediterranean. This is what life has been like for the Arabs who lived in the wrong place at the wrong time. Imagine, if you will, that your home, your family, your neighbors and every little thing you worked for is now that pile of rubble. The Americans did this, they are told. Not incorrectly, mind you. Each of us who allowed the ruling class Ds and Rs to run rampant with their war machine DID DO THIS. Let this be the year Joe Sixpack withdraws his support. […]

war

Cold war Hot war Meh Today the typical murrikan celebrates the deliberate destruction of USofA versus / Russia / China / Korea / Iran / Yemen / etcetera by running big screen televisions full time while grazing on GMO chips, dips, cheese and lots of watery beer-like substance. Much of what that television poured out last year was the destruction of international relations, with particular focus on making Russia into a country worth sharing nuclear war with. Won’t that be fun? It did not have to be. The war mongers lost our presidential election. We were on the brink of peace. Sadly, Trump’s rebellious early cabinet appointments shifted trajectory in mid-January. He turned from hiring outsiders to surrounding himself with […]

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 […]

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, […]
