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

Japan's role as U.S. agent in Asia-Pacific


Rachel Clark lives in upstate New York and is a professional Japanese language interpreter, translator, as well as a peace activist and coordinator of many Veterans For Peace delegations and speaking tours to Japan.   

In this interview with Global Network coordinator Bruce Gagnon they discuss the following: 

  • The impacts on Okinawa and Jeju Island, South Korea of expanding US bases in the region.
  • What was the goal of the Obama administration's 'pivot' of US military forces into the Asia-Pacific.
  • What role does Japan play as the US agent in the region?
  • How has Article 9 of the Japanese constitution (that calls for a pacifist nation) been amended to serve US interests?
  • Why are NATO warships now porting in Japan? Is NATO expanding its 'mission' into the Asia-Pacific?
  • How does the corporate media narrative impact the people and nations of the region?
