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. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

I am in Stamford, CT waiting to speak in a workshop at the national anti-war conference that has drawn several hundred people from thoughout the country - primarily from the east coast.

Two bus loads of Muslim activists just pulled up outside the hotel where the conference is being held. There are quite a number of people of color here - many Asians, folks from Middle East and Latin America - all victims of the U.S. -NATO expanding war on people who live near resources that the corporations want.

There has been alot of talk at the conference about the national protests that will be held in Chicago in mid-May when NATO holds its summit in Obama's home town.

I am doing two workshops today. In the first one I will talk about how Obama's expansion of "missile defense" deployments surrounding Russia and China are leading to a new arms race.

In the second workshop I will facilitate a discussion about the Bring Our War $$ Home campaign that got its start in Maine but has now spread all over the nation.
