Most Warlike Nation
Unites States “wins,” according to Jimmy Carter.
“Carter then said the US has been at peace for only 16 of its 242 years as a nation. Counting wars, military attacks and military occupations, there have actually only been five years of peace in US history…”
Are Drone Strikes Cowardly?
To ask the question is to know the answer.
From William J. Astore, a retired lieutenant colonel (USAF):
“America likes to fancy itself the ‘home of the brave,’ a land of ‘heroes’ and ‘warriors.’ But how heroic is it to launch a Hellfire missile from a drone, without any risk to yourself? Aren’t warriors supposed to be on the receiving end of elemental violence as well as being the inflictors of it?”
Kings Bay Ploughshares
“Democracy Now! recently spoke with the four Plowshares activists who are out on bond: Martha Hennessy, Carmen Trotta, Patrick O’Neill and Clare Grady.”
Thank you, Nukes
“On Friday May 3 Westminster Abbey will be hosting a service to mark 50 years of the UK having nuclear weapons on constant patrol at sea.
The invitation to the event, which has been seen by Christian CND, describes the event as a “National Service of Thanksgiving to mark 50 years of the Continuous at Sea Deterrent (CASD)”. There is at least one Trident submarine at sea at any one time, with each carrying sufficient nuclear warheads to bring about catastrophic damage to many cities and impact the climate in a way which would affect the entire world.”
Iraq War and Russia Collusion
“The goal of the intersectional Iraq War and Trump-Russia collusion fraudsters was clear: Regime change. The playbook is nearly identical—produce flawed intelligence, rally support from the media, portray any opponent as a bad actor, keep creating new crimes. However this time, instead of seeking to depose an Iraqi tyrant, the collusion propagandists within the conservative establishment sought to remove a duly elected U.S. president.”
“If we wait until they’re 17 or 18, we will not be the first impression,” Wardynski said. “Others will have made that for us.”
Well, we certainly wouldn’t want anyone else, besides the U.S. military, making the first impression on our kids! Get ’em early.
