With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

NATO SUMMIT PROTESTS PLANNED


November 19-21 there will be protests against the NATO summit in Lisbon, Portugal.

Of particular importance at this summit will be the issue of "missile offense" spreading throughout Europe - especially expanding eastward to surround Russia. This move by the U.S., and its NATO lackies, is intended to box Russia in so the oil majors can control distribution of oil and natural gas in the years ahead. Russia sits on the world's biggest supply of natural gas and significant supplies of oil. In addition, the oil corporations don't want to see the Caspian Sea pipelines being routed through Russia.

Missile offense systems are key elements in U.S. first-strike attack planning. As they spread they are becoming triggers for war with Russia and China.

The man on the left in the video is Dave Webb who was recently elected national chair of the UK's Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. He is also the chair of the Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space.
