The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

Fylingdales in North Yorkshire
Menwith Hill in Yorkshire

Yorkshire in England is where the U.S. has built the Menwith Hill satellite spy base. Our friends there have been protesting for years to stop the expansion of the base and its upgrading to participate in the U.S. Star Wars program.

Not far from Menwith Hill is a second U.S. Star Wars facility called Fylingdales which sits in the middle of the moors, the national park surrounded by fields of beautiful heather. Fylingdales is a Ballistic Missile Early Warning System radar. On June 6 the Yorkshire Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) will hold a protest at Fylingdales.

The people in this part of the world don't want these U.S. bases on their lands. They don't want their countryside to be used to help the U.S. "control and dominate" space and the planet below on behalf of corporate globalization. They don't want to be targets in U.S. created global instability.

We could save lots of money if we shut these bases down and brought our war $$ home.
