War

Hypocrisy on the Left - Daily Kos Maxim, If You Vote for the Democratic Party, You're okay with Illegal Wars and Murder

“The people in charge can always justify doing terrible things in the name of the greater good. A slaughter here, a little torture there. It becomes moral to do things that would be immoral if an ordinary individual did ’em.” - Joe Hill, The Fireman

Murder - Nothing Else Matters

To me, murder is murder. There should be no diplomatic immunity, executive privilege, or collateral damage when it comes to killing human beings. Some may say that war is different but that's a lie because all war is a lie. The wars conducted this century under presidents Bush, Obama and Trump are based on nothing but lies.

Until lions have their historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunters.
African Proverb

Napoleon once said, "What is history, but a fable agreed upon?”
(paraphrasing ~François-Marie Arouet de Voltaire (1694–1778), "Jeannot et Colin”)

People are trapped in history, and history is trapped in them.
James Baldwin, Notes of a Native Son

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”
― Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

The obscurest epoch is today.

Begging for War

Trapped. That's how I feel now when I read what's happening in the foreign policy/geopolitical world. Trapped. I feel like screaming out to anyone, "hey, can't you see!!"

But there's no one who will listen except the die hard anti-imperialists who truly understand what has happened and what is happening. They're all trapped also.

Some Practical Advice for Nazi Smashers.

So, I'm watching the Antifa and numerous other groups that have decided to challenge the small groups of Nazis who infest our national discourse. It's really great that these folks have decided to attack the ONE group who everyone in the world pretty much agrees are slime.

However, let's be frank, They're doing it WRONG.

Enough. Let's go to "Real" War and get it over with.

Alright. Admit it.

The USA is "significantly challenged" around the globe by rogue countries that have the GDP of either Maryland or Montana.

Russia? That's gotta be at least North Carolina.

North Korea? Rhode Island? We have 3 Naval Battle Groups circling the Peninsula. You tell me, has that ever happened before? China nervous? You betcha.

"But What about ISIS"? or ALL WAR IS A LIE

Most of the left, not to mention the right, are falling again for the false narratives, lies and propaganda coming from our government, the Trump regime, and the oligarchy owned and controlled media regarding the supposed ceasefire in Syria, agreements with Russia and Trump's decisions and actions in "fighting terrorism".

No wonder the antiwar movement is almost dead during a period of unprecedented war.

The U.S. Led Illegal War in Syria, What's It All About Alfie?

Is it about oil? Is it about gas? Is it about pipelines? Is it about a central bank? Is it about power? Is it about greed? Is it about regime change? Is it about country balkanization? Is it about Iran? Is it about Russia? Is it about Israel?

Yes.

Is it about fighting terrorism?

No.

Would you Kill for Single Payer?

Bernie Sanders, Nina Turner, the Justice Democrats and the People's Summit democratic party cadre, the so called "progressive insurgency" of the democratic party, have made it clear that U.S. imperialism and the accompanying wars, regime changes, country balkanizations, and millions of deaths and brutal evictions are not high on their list of "issues".

Another 4,000 Americans to be sent into the Afghanistan meat grinder!

Numerous news outlets are now reporting that President Trump has authorized Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis to send 4,000 more American soldiers to Afghanistan, admitting that many of these will serve in direct combat roles.
