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.

What is really going on - anyone notice?

 

From left Mary Donnelly, Maureen Ostensen and the Polar bear (Cynthia Howard, her sign reads 'GD You're Killing ME') outside of a BIW gate just before workers poured out last Saturday. The vigil was part of the annual Lenten seasons peace vigils at the Bath, Maine Navy shipyard. The last Lenten vigil will be April 3 (Saturday). Plans are underway to organize a more regular presence at BIW, more on that later.

  • I'm watching closely Washington's moves in Ukraine. Many believe (and fear) that the US is setting in motion an attack on the Donbass by the Ukrainian neo-Nazis that will quickly be blamed on Russia. It appears likely that if the Kiev puppet regime does attack the Donbass, Moscow will quickly counter to defend the Russian-ethnic Ukrainian citizens who live near the Russian border. The US-NATO war juggernaut will cry out in indignation that 'Russia has invaded Ukraine. We need more money to defend Europe from an aggressive Moscow.'
  • At the same time US-NATO is extending the alliance into the Asia-Pacific region.  Already the war-lords have signed up Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand and Mongolia as 'NATO partners'. Why does US-NATO want to move into that part of the world? Washington, and the white EU ruling elites, are fed up with Russia and China having the power at the Security Council to block US resolutions that seek the UN's blessing for more war - like was done in Korea, Yugoslavia, Libya and many other nations that were taken apart for western banking interests. They want to replace the UN with a separate 'international organization' that can unilaterally make war - thus an expanded NATO that is essentially controlled by Washington.
  • Russia and China are over it. Enough is enough. Someone has to stand up to the bully and when they do they get demonized (non-stop) by western governments and media.  The present 'empire', made up of EU oligarchs and united with Washington, is losing control of the globe. Much of the Global South ain't having none of this US-NATO domination anymore either.

  • Washington is now preparing to build a new generation of nuclear weapons (this program first approved by Obama) and a much bigger Navy to challenge China and Russia. They know that in a war you lose lot$ of 'hardware' so stock up before the shooting starts.  We have the equivalent today of Gen. Curtis LeMay running the show in Congress, the White House and the Pentagon. We've been taken over by madmen. And we keep giving them more money. (LeMay bombed the living hell out of Japanese civilians and famously said, "If we'd lost the war, we'd all have been prosecuted as war criminals.")
  • So what the hell do we do about it?  This could be the end of 'the deal' as Biden might say....but American's are far too busy getting their jabs and boasting about it to all their friends to pay much attention.  The Covid shot is a relief and a socially 'correct' thing to do. So just join the party. War? What war? Why didn't somebody tell me!?
  • I've heard it said that America loves generals. I know America loves wars, so they must love generals too. We've had quite a number of presidents who were once generals. The American DNA is blood and guts. Watch commercial TV these days and see how kids are being programmed to be eager for the big war - good vs evil - the final solution. 

You become what you swallow.
