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

Biden lunch in Nantucket draws protests


I've long believed that the US government (and their corrupt western allies) are modern day pirates. Crooks, criminals, killers and thieves.

Biden is in Nantucket, Massachusetts (an island off Cape Cod) for another of his many vacations. As he was walking down Broad Street (with massive Secret Service protection) some people on the other side of the street were chanting in support of Palestine.

Soon enough his party turned to enter a restaurant called 'Brotherhood of Thieves'. The perfect metaphor for the US-Israel military alliance. You'd imagine that the White House PR team might have suggested another choice of a restaurant - or maybe they just want to throw the pirate imagery in our collective faces.


It seems obvious to me that Biden is unmoved by the genocide taking place in Gaza and the West Bank right now. 

Israel killed a 25-year old doctor today in the West Bank and were shooting at medical teams in Gaza - one reason for the hours long delay in the second planned trading of hostages between Hamas and Israel. Another reason was that Israel was violating the agreement to allow humanitarian aid trucks to bring relief supplies to north Gaza. So far only three trucks have made it to north Gaza.

The Biden government and both parties in Congress clearly appear to be on-board with the extermination of Palestine. There might be a couple politicians in each party not in sync with the genocide plan now underway - but the vast majority certainly are.

Biden and his foreign policy team should all be immediately charged with direct complicity in war crimes against Palestine. Money, weapons and political cover all add up to this obvious complicity.

So much for Washington's international 'Rules based order'. 

If things continue at the current rate it will likely break into a regional war. The US-NATO could be drawn in. We need to heat the heat on Washington-London-Brussels-Tel-Aviv.
