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

Corporate western media says Russia is losing....



LPR and Russian army capture Ukrainian soldiers every day by dozens. By official and unofficial data Ukrainian daily losses are 300-700 soldiers and hundreds get wounded and (or) captured. 

The situation hasn't changed for several weeks. Kiev regime seems to keep burning out its army.  Plus the US-NATO puppet regime in Ukraine is now forcing their 'Reserves' (18-60 years of age) into battle. Cannon fodder and nothing more. It is despicable.

Of course you can deny this and believe the same western corporate media that sold us the lies in 2003 about WMD in Iraq......

Or try reading the Pentagon Papers created by the Rand Corporation and released to the public in 1971 by whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg.

I joined the Air Force that same year. 

Once while browsing the book rack at the base exchange, during lunch at the chow hall at Wheeler AFB in Hawaii, I discovered the controversial papers had been published as a book. I bought the book because it revealed the secret story detailing how the US government lied to the public, the Congress and the media about Vietnam.

I sat at my desk in my office and read some passages out loud (with emphasis when appropriate) to my office mates. I was written up by my Master Sergeant boss but didn't care at that point. 

It was a great lesson for me. I'd grown up in an Air Force family and was mostly educated in military-run schools. I was a near total 'patriot' when I joined the service.

I believe in service very much. But not one that props up an international mafia cartel that runs the west and wishes to take Russia down.

The Pentagon Papers helped me quickly recover from my 'USA is the greatest' illusions. It was in the military that I became a peace and justice activist.

It was also then that I became clear that I should never buy the the lies that emanate from Washington. If you doubt that point, just check in with the Native Americans. 

Over the years I've refined my sense of smell for the BS wafting from our capital city. The joint is run by Wall Street and the war machine.  They go hand-in-hand.

So I don't believe a mumbling word coming out of the mouths of the 'selected officials' who carry water for Mr. Big. Right now they are trying to ram a war with Russia and China down our throats. 

I just spit it out.
