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

Okinawa protests against U.S. bases: Opposing preparation for war with China



Our Global Network video this month chronicles the sad history of Japanese and U.S. colonization of Okinawa.
The U.S. (with full Japanese cooperation) has turned Okinawa into a war base and an obvious target during any conflict with China.
Just in recent days a four-star Air Force general sent a memo to the officers he commands that predicts the U.S. will be at war with China in two years and tells them to get ready to prepare by firing "a clip" at a target, and "aim for the head."
The memo by Gen. Mike Minihan, head of Air Mobility Command, said, "I hope I am wrong. My gut tells me will fight in 2025."
Reports have disclosed that some 50,000 service members and nearly 500 planes are under Gen. Minihan's command.
Okinawa, formerly the independent Ryukyu Kingdom, has a history and culture distinct from Japan. This southernmost prefecture represents less than 1 percent of Japanese territory, yet it hosts more than half of the 57,000 active duty U.S. military personnel stationed in the country.
