Location: Brunswick, Maine, United States

I'll be taking an 'unpaid leave of absence' from my job at the Global Network from December 15-March 15, 2020 in order to help my friend Lisa Savage on her campaign for the US Senate in Maine. She's running as a Maine Green Independent Party member and needs to gather 2,000 petition signatures of registered Greens during that period. I'll be back to GN after March 15.

FOOLS ERRAND



This Guardian (UK) news report indicates the Afghan Army is not motivated to kill their fellow citizens on behalf of the US occupiers. Basically they are just using it as a job.

The reaction of the one US soldier, lecturing his Afghani counterpart about the need for a "sense of nationalism", indicates a total lack of cultural understanding.

The US is on a fools errand in Afghanistan and you are paying for it. How much longer do you want your hard earned tax dollars wasted on this mess?

Silence is complicity.......

UPDATE: Amy Goodman writes: I asked Bolivian President Evo Morales for his solution (on global warming). He recommends “all war spending be directed towards climate change, instead of spending it on troops in Iraq, in Afghanistan or the military bases in Latin America.”
