Brace yourselves, in being that I’m admittedly non-political I’ve been asked by a number of my former students to ‘rant’ so here it is…
The first link below is an interesting man, but I must say, though I’m happy to hear he believes himself healed “Sometimes the hurt and trauma doesn’t go away, the wounds don’t heal, and the shameful memories grow stronger and clearer over time rather than fade. We just continue in pain…”
The continuing rape of the American people, yet again by the ego driven, power mad, and corporate owned political aristocracy of the United States once again demonstrates their unchallenged mastery of control by providing us all a ‘choice’ between two great evils, using our building frustration creating by creating threats and enemies from the innocent across the world, and using media and distraction to keep their minions (us) from daring to stand against the unwarranted unjust murder of people’s around the world. Most of us have been so brainwashed the whole of our lives that even though we each know the unbridled falseness of our ‘leadership’ we dare not stand against it because we ‘know’ we cannot overcome the established control. It would only add us and our loved ones to the hit list of the ‘enemies of the state.
Historically, science has supported the development of the weapons industry and the war economy. “Science for Peace” indelibly requires reversing the logic whereby commissioned scientific endeavors are directed towards supporting what President Eisenhower called “The Military Industrial Complex”. What was/is consequently required was/is a massive redirection of science and technology towards the pursuit of broad societal objectives. In turn, this requires a major shift in what is euphemistically called “US Foreign Policy”, namely America’s global military agenda.
‘Military Affairs in the current Global context’
The world is at a dangerous crossroads. The United States and its allies have launched a military adventure which threatens the future of humanity. Under a global military agenda, the actions undertaken by the Western military alliance (U.S.-NATO-Israel) in Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Pakistan, Palestine, Ukraine, Syria and Iraq are coordinated at the highest levels of the military hierarchy. We are not dealing with piecemeal military and intelligence operations. Major military and covert intelligence operations are being undertaken simultaneously in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, sub-Saharan Africa, Central Asia and the Asia Pacific region.
The current situation is all the more critical inasmuch as a US-NATO war on Russia, China and Iran is part of the US presidential election debate. It is presented as a political and military option to Western public opinion. The US-NATO military agenda combines both major theater operations as well as covert actions geared towards destabilizing sovereign states. America’s hegemonic project is to destabilize and destroy countries through acts of war, support of terrorist organizations, regime change and economic warfare.
U.S. and NATO forces have been deployed in Eastern Europe including Poland and Ukraine. In turn, military maneuvers are being conducted at Russia’s doorstep which could potentially lead to confrontation with the Russian Federation. The U.S. and its allies are also threatening China under President Obama’s “Pivot to Asia”.
The U.S. led airstrikes initiated in August 2014 directed against Iraq and Syria under the pretext of going after the Islamic State are part of a scenario of military escalation extending from North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean to Central and South Asia.
War is Good for Business! It keeps them growing, prosperous, lavishing in profit. Spearheaded by the “defense contractors” (Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Boeing, British Aerospace etc), the Obama administration has proposed a one trillion-dollar plan over a 30 year period to develop a new generation of nuclear weapons, bombers, submarines, and intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) largely directed at Russia and China.
Blowing up Russia, targeting Russian cities is still on the Pentagon’s A list drawing board. In the words of Hillary Clinton, the nuclear option is on the table. Preemptive nuclear war is part of her election campaign. The US has formulated a global war scenario, which is defined in military documents.
There are three major regional deployments of US-NATO which threaten Global Security:
1. Eastern Europe on Russia’s Western Frontier, with the deployment of US-NATO military hardware on Russia’s doorstep
2, The Pivot to Asia” largely directed against China.
3. The Middle East and North Africa, extending to Central Asia
In the these regions, the use of nuclear weapons on a preemptive basis is contemplated against both nuclear and non-nuclear states.
In other regions of the World including Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa, non-conventional forms of warfare are envisaged including destabilization, ”regime change”, covert support to terrorist organizations, economic warfare.
You may be surprised to know that the so-called recent Russian hack attack, when traced back by quite a number of people like me, was found to have come from a government data center in Virginia, but of course that fact will never get any media time in today’s culture.
I have very little doubt the ‘The Global War on Terrorism’ is yet another Big Lie. Al Qaeda is undoubtedly a Creation of U.S .Intelligence services. From the outset of the Soviet-Afghan war in 1979 to the present, various Islamic fundamentalist paramilitary organizations became de facto instruments of US intelligence and more generally of the US-NATO-Israel military alliance. The U.S. has actively supported Al Qaeda affiliated terrorist organizations since the onslaught of the Soviet Afghan War. Washington has engineered the installation of Islamist regimes in Afghanistan and Pakistan. It has destroyed the fabric of secular societies.
Confirmed by Israeli intelligence media, the Al Qaeda opposition fighters in Syria are recruited by US-NATO and the Turkish high command. They are the foot-soldiers of the Western military alliance, with special forces in their midst. The Al Qaeda affiliated “moderate” terrorist organizations in Syria are supported by Saudi Arabia and Turkey. The counter-terrorism agenda is bogus. It’s a criminal undertaking. What is being bombed is the civilian infrastructure of a sovereign country.
In conclusion I guess (I hear the sighs of relief out there LoL)
War is not an inevitable process. War can be prevented through mass action, as was painfully demonstrated by the long painful work of the 60’s (though of course that too has been compromised by an organized campaign to minimize its hard-fought success throughout the decades now past). War criminals occupy positions of authority. The citizenry is galvanized into supporting the rulers, who are “committed to their safety and well-being”. Through media disinformation, war is given a false humanitarian mandate. The legitimacy of the war must be addressed. Antiwar sentiment alone does not disarm a military agenda.
The corporate backers and sponsors of war and war crimes must also be targeted including the oil companies, the defense contractors, the financial institutions and the corporate media, which has become an integral part of the war propaganda machine. There is a sense of urgency. Today, the antiwar movement is virtually defunct. The real threat to global security emanates from the US-NATO-Israel alliance, yet realities in an inquisitorial environment are turned upside down: the warmonger are committed to peace, the victims of war are presented as the protagonists of war.
Using the promoted concept “The homeland is threatened.” The media, intellectuals and the politicians, in chorus, obfuscate the unspoken truth, namely that the US-NATO led war destroys humanity. When the lie becomes the truth there is no turning backwards. When war is upheld as a humanitarian endeavor, Justice and the entire international legal system are turned upside down: pacifism and the antiwar movement are criminalized. Opposing the war becomes a criminal act. Meanwhile, the war criminals in high office have ordered a witch hunt against those who challenge their authority.
The Big Lie must be exposed for what it is and what it does. It sanctions the indiscriminate killing of men, women and children. It destroys families and people. It destroys the commitment of people towards their fellow human beings. It prevents people from expressing their solidarity for those who suffer. It upholds war and the police state as the sole avenue. It destroys both nationalism and internationalism. Breaking the lie means breaking a criminal project of global destruction, in which the quest for profit is the overriding force.
Overall human kind has a very clear history of murderous self-destructive conflict and failure, grow ever the more extreme with the ‘advancement’ of the species, but I challenge you all to do a little research as to the truth of the war history of the United States while you can still gain access to information from outside the control of our owners, for there is no doubt what-so-ever that very soon your access will be censured and cut off for “matters of national security” just as has been done for decades for all the other foreign media sources. Lest you’re thinking me mad or deranged do your own research, take a good look at the truths available for Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Northern Africa, Iraq, Sudan, and on and on.
What you decide needs done I promise to stand with you to make it happen.
Because far too many have either forgotten or will now never know 😦
Truth is, the enemy was quite simple composed of poor simple people of whoms only ‘crime’ was that of doing their best to defend their homes any families from a ruthless invading oppressor.
Including this one because many years afterward itwas revealled that the Khmer Rouge were createdn guided, and suplied by the U.S. CIA, but of course by then no-one seem to want to hear.
A decade or more ago I shared with friends information I had long before discovered about the 11 years prior to the “Jappanese sneak attack on pearl harbor”, and some of those I shared with did their own research enableing then to share even more with me. This is why I share this link.

The Historical Origins of al Qaeda, Brzezinski And The Mujahideen back in 1979
Art and Words to settle my mind
Happening, a never to end cycle,
Vivid violent images bloody overwhelm,
This nightmare of reality looms ever true,
Can we hope for better, dare dream of peace,
With sadness I fear not, for we ourselves ere flee,
Allowing it, bowing to the few, and follow their rule,
Thus forever it continues, tempest of engulfing flames,
And we will hide from it, forget, boxed deepest in mind,
Can’t remember, must not, can not allow, will not,
Thus condemned we will remain for eternity,
Locked tight within this unending nightmare,
Condemning all those as yet to come,
Now time has passed,
Edge shine gone all now is rust,
What meaning is left,
Will I ere be found,
Sought new reason for being,
Silence is all found…
