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. @BruceKGagnon

REPORT FROM PEACE CONFERENCE IN TURKEY


Global Network board member Agneta Norberg (Sweden) holds map showing US-NATO military bases all around the world.  She and Global Network chair Dave Webb (Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament in the UK) are at an international conference in Istanbul, Turkey opposing US-NATO deployment of "missile defense" systems in that country aimed at Syria.

Dave Webb reports:

At the conference - well attended with 150-200 (mostly young people). Agneta and I have given our presentations on behalf of the Global Network - we have heard many calls for stopping the imperialist intervention by the US and its allies. Support for the Syrian people and their right to self determination has been expressed by all speakers. Agneta and I added our concerns about the use of space and the expansion of NATO and the number of US bases being used for the continued militarisation of space and solidarity with the protests against the US Patriot missiles being stationed in Turkey.
