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

History lesson: What could have been

Truman ordered the 'bomb' to be dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan in 1945.

He became president essentially after a coup during the Democratic party convention in 1944 when corrupt right-wing forces installed him as FDR's Vice-President rather than the extremely popular man of peace named Henry Wallace.

This was a crucial moment in US history.  FDR died in office and Truman took over the presidency.

We see virtually the same battle going on in the Democratic Party today - a class struggle as Bernie Sanders and Tulsi Gabbard are viewed by Wall Street and the military industrial complex as completely unacceptable to get the nomination.

Instead Mr. Big wants corporate collaborationists like Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg, Beto O'Rourke or even the 'liberal' Elizabeth Warren who has the HQ of Raytheon weapons corporation in her state of Massachusetts.

The corporate media is daily used to condition the American people for acceptance of the 'correct' and likely ultimate choice.

It's a classic battle.
