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

Example of effective issue linkage


I'd like to congratulate the organizers of this upcoming August 6 event in Minnesota.

I am impressed with how they linked the horrid memory of Hiroshima/Nagasaki with the current conflicts today that very well could be the trigger for the next nuclear war.

Instead of half-stepping they also called Ukraine just what it is - a US-UK-NATO proxy war on Russia. Sadly many 'peace groups' across the west are misinterpreting the current war against Russia.  I've shared articles and videos for months that clearly reveal the true intention of the western warmongers. They want regime change in Moscow and Beijing. The west started this war.

The white oligarchic west is fighting to hang onto to its centuries long control and domination of the global south - Middle East, African continent, Indo-Pacific, Latin and South America. These populations (representing the most people on our tiny spinning orb) have had enough of the corrupt western run capitalist system that results in barbarism and slavery.

Russia and China have developed the ability in recent years to stand up to the Neo-con bullies who now run the show in Washington, Berlin, Brussels, Paris and squeaky London. So it is natural that the fading white west pulls out its favorite card - create more division and chaos.

Thus any nation that dares utter a peep of criticism or opposition toward the west is cancelled. Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Cuba, Libya, Yemen and many other nations well know this modus operandi of the western criminal cabal. 

Washington has its agents - puppets sprinkled around the globe - particularly visible in Europe. The CIA, after the end of WW II, used the Gladio terror program to ensure that most governments across Europe had its agents in charge. These governments (under US bankster direction) have continued their colonial domination of most of the global south.

Some 'progressive leaders' are afraid to speak out and tell the entire truth about what is actually going on today. 

During my 44 years of professional organizing (United Farm Workers Union, urban social justice organizing and then peace movement) I've seen lots of groups come and go. I understand how the funding world basically works. I have a clear picture about who gets $$$ and why. I have a decent picture of who the funders are and how they use the $$$ to 'guide the message' of the movement(s).

So there are social, economic and political reasons why some peace movement leaders feel the necessity to dump on Russia before daring to criticize Washington for creating the pretext in Ukraine that could lead to a red-hot exchange with Russia. I get lots of newsletters in the mail from groups around the world and it astounds me how many of them say little to nothing about the US role in Ukraine. They make little apparent connection between current US provocative foreign policy and the nuclear war that they so abhor. 

These strategic organizing mistakes mean one key thing - the public (who these groups are supposed to serve and educate) is left to get much of their information from corporate hired media lackeys. So such groups have failed in their #1 mission. They should be sharing the truth, helping to show how our own government is the instigator and director of this coming conflict between US-UK-Israel-NATO and Russia, China, Iran, etc. 

People in the global south know that the coming war by the west is about the oligarchs in those nations making a last ditch effort to hang onto their money, power and control. They are being cancelled. Call it karma.

You've got to pick sides in this world. I'm not a pacifist but have many tendencies in that direction. It's my connection to the spirit world which guides me. 

There is a demon out there - the global south has been trying to reason with the demon for centuries - but the warlords can't listen. Mr. Big is blinded by his greed and disconnection from nature. How are the western oligarchs to be restrained before they do even more harm? Do nations have the right to stand up to the demon?

Russia has been invaded for hundreds of years by those who want her resources. By the end of WWII, 27 million Soviet Union citizens died at the hands of Hitler's Nazi army. Russians have had enough of the western raiders. They reject NATO expansion and all the chaos that comes with it.

Tao He writes: 'The primary motive of British imperialism in China in the nineteenth century was economic. There was a high demand for Chinese tea, silk and porcelain in the British market. However, Britain did not possess sufficient silver to trade with the Qing Empire. Thus, a system of barter based on Indian opium was created to bridge this problem of payment.  The subsequent exponential increase of opium in China between 1790 and 1832 brought about a generation of addicts and social instability.  Clashes between the Qing government and British merchants ultimately escalated into the infamous Opium Wars.' [Big family fortunes
were made in UK, France, US by the opium trade. Franklin Roosevelt's family made money in the opium trade, as did John Kerry's. Columbia University, Harvard and Yale were built with opium trade profits.]

China has not forgotten about western colonization.

The story goes on and on....

We are approaching the decisive moments of the Ukraine war where it is estimated that by the end of August Russia should have the Donbass liberated. But just west of the Donbass, the US-supplied HIMARS long-range missile launchers could still be fired from Kiev-controlled lands. What should Russia do then? These HIMARS are predominately aimed at civilians in the Russian-ethnic regions of eastern Ukraine.

Videos are uploaded virtually every day of Ukrainian troops requesting to be allowed to retreat before they are killed. Zelensky (and his CIA bosses) tell them to dig trenches and keep fighting. The Russians know this war in being directed by Washington. Moscow understands that negotiation is not on the Neo-con agenda. The western oligarchs must have victory or nothing else. They are willing to burn the people of the world if they have to do so. 

That is how fascists work.
