Pushing War with Russia - More than Crazy



One more contemporary version of Dr. Stangelove.

Listen to General  Curtis Scaparrotti, Commander of US European Command, beg Congress for even more $$$ for endless war making - this time targeting Russia.

Currently the US spends 34%  of the world total of military spending.  Add the NATO members to the US total and you get over 50%.

What does Russia spend?  Imagine 4% of the global total.  That's right and please tell me just how in hell Russia could be a threat to the world at 4%?

These people know they have to have an enemy in order to sell the American people and NATO on the idea that even more money is needed in the military budgets of these all ready ripped nations.  So they demonize Russia in order to make the case.

Sadly we find the Democrats these days quite willing to play along with this Russia demonization program - I call it recycled Red baiting.  But obviously it is working and the Congress and NATO are raiding their public treasuries, demanding more budget cuts in social and environmental programs and off we go to the new Cold War.

The weapons corporations investors are making big money while the human and physical infrastructure of our nation collapses.

But most importantly these people are crazy as hell and just might start WW III - believing their own bullshit that the US can fight and win a war against Russia.  The truth is the US can't beat the Taliban in Afghanistan so how in the world are they going to take on Russia - even if they are only spending 4% of the world total in military budgets?

These idiots are criminally insane and should not be running the US military, Congress or the White House!  People wake up and smell the rotting souls in Washington!
