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.

Protecting forest on Jeju Island



Citizens on Jeju Island, South Korea have been struggling hard for the past couple of years to protect several villages and a forest (Bijarim-ro) from destruction.

Plans are underway to build a second airport on the island, and many believe that the airport will also be used by the US military as an airbase.  This proposed airport will be close to the already constructed Navy base in Gangjeong village.

The US military always wants to have 'close air support' near to any Navy base where its warships are ported.  Such is likely the case with this current effort to build the airport.

Since trees were first cut down the people have been regularly re-planting new trees and tending to them. Save Bijarim-ro!
