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.

THE LONG WALK



In the video, University of California-Davis students, silent, with linked arms, confront Chancellor Linda Katehi just one day after the pepper spraying incident. It's hard to tell exactly how many of them are present, but there they are, a huge crowd. They're seated in the same cross-legged-on-the-ground position their fellow students used yesterday just before Lt. John Pike pulled out a can of pepper spray and pulled the trigger.


Note that Katehi remains silent during what looks like her perp walk. She does not acknowledge the presence of the students.


These remarkable students are giving the entire Occupy movement a lesson in real non-violent protest. They are the shining stars of the movement.
