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.

THE RUSSIAN VIEW OF MD



This RT video gives an interesting insiders view of how the Russians feel about expanding U.S. & NATO "missile defense" deployments near their borders.

I found the bit near the end from inside a Polish village where the U.S. is setting up a base for these systems rather sad....a kind of other side of the Earth version of Jeju Island without the rocky coastline. But still worrisome to local people and obviously disruptive to their lives.

We have hardly any contacts in Poland or Romania where the U.S. is going to be deploying "missile defense" interceptors. If anyone can help us make some contacts in those countries that would be great.

All of this means we are in a new and dangerous arms race. It's an arms race that none of us can afford.
