More US-NATO War Mongering

Barack Obama accuses Russia of adopting an “increasingly aggressive” stance on Ukraine, during a meeting with NATO's chief in the White House. RT's Gayane Chichakyan has the details.

The hypocrisy of the US-NATO global war machine is over the top.  They push, push, push against others and when anyone reacts to the bully they are accused of being the aggressor.  It works though because so many people in the western world have been reduced to consumers and entertainment junkies - thus they fall prey to the lies constantly flowing out of the White House and from NATO HQ in Brussels.  

At the same time our own nation crumbles as human needs and the physical infrastructure collapse due to social disinvestment in order to pump up the war machine.  Sadly few of the liberals that are tied to the Democrats will bother to take on Washington - as they still want to believe in the tooth fairy and Santa Claus. They say things like "Maybe if we just elect the right person he/she will fix it for us?"  We heard that about Obama - in fact after all the betrayals by Obama many liberals still defend him. It's amazing and hard to watch.

These folks are living in a dream world of days gone by - but there is little chance to reason with them.  They fear being labeled as "radicals" because their desire to be liked and to fit into the prevailing local culture trumps doing what is now needed if we are to survive. Only active non-violent civil resistance has a chance to stop this run-a-way war train. Most liberals are still trying to be a 'success' within the existing system or think they will be more effective inside traditional structures that have long ago been hollowed out. Real democracy has been drowned by the corporate oligarchy.  It's beyond time to see things as they truly are and to stand up and be counted - on behalf of the future generations.
