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

This is how it gets really dangerous


 Houthi (Yemen) military march in Saada governorate in solidarity with Gaza

Recently this march (video) was filmed in Yemen to protest the genocide of Gaza. Yemen was expressing their solidarity with Palestine. They announced they would defend Palestine. Yemen is part of the 'Axis of Resistance'. 

Since that march Yemen has captured a couple of Israeli-tycoon owned big cargo/tanker ships. They have consistently sent small armed drones toward Israel. Israel says they shoot them all down - few know for certain.

In addition Yemen has fired some number of rockets toward Israel. The US Navy has destroyers in the Red Sea near Yemen and has been intercepting some of these projectiles. Yemen is now talking about taking out one of the destroyers.

Washington just moved an aircraft carrier into the Persian Gulf. This was likely meant as a threat to Iran due to Tehran's promise to at some point shut down the Strait of Hormuz passage way between the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman. (Cutting off some 20% of global oil trade.)
Iran, one of the leaders of the 'Axis of Resistance', stands behind Palestine 100%. Unlike some Arab nations, like Jordan, Egypt, UAE, and the Saudis, Iran is not half-stepping during this war.

One must figure that a key reason for a 3rd round of 'Gaza pauses' is the massive global pressure on Tel Aviv and Washington. 
As the Democrats come apart like a worn cloth, the Biden Zionist administration is under mounting calls to force Israel to stop its extermination of Gaza. All over the world this daily cry is heard. Seven thousand Gazans are buried under the rubble. Infectious disease is now a threat even greater than Israel's criminal bombing.
Not only has Israel lost the 'propaganda' battle but it also appears Tel Aviv is losing the ground game inside the chaos of north Gaza as well. Hamas claims to have hit 300 military vehicles/tanks and killed many times more Israeli troops than their controlled media is allowed to acknowledge. Israel has just admitted that their troops have taken over 1,000 casualties in Gaza.
Israel, as my mother would say, is 'showing its ass'. To the whole world. And it ain't a pretty picture.
So Israel - with its shrinking economy, busted reputation, losing the battle in Gaza - now faces one other possible great obstacle. It would be the full entry of the 'Axis of Resistance' into the war. The member nations of that coalition don't want to fight and die. But they know that the arrogant western-backed colonialist empire is shaking at its knees. It's days of global rampage and plunder are over. Now is the time for pressure from all corners.
US-UK-EU have really just one choice. Either become peaceful participating nations in multi-planetary decision making process or face the growing wrath of global society. (The UN's downright subservience to Washington-London-Brussels should remind everyone why the Global South is so fucking angry.)

Back at home - just go vote??

Americans have been taught to be compliment citizens. Do your 'patriotic duty' and vote. Keep shopping - as much as possible - build up that credit card debt. And be sure to watch lots of boring corporate TV - infused with promotion of sex, violence, and material accumulation. The Golden God's of television. America is morally corrupted by money and greed.

The whole system is rotten and collapsing. Poor and working people have been dealing with this for years. Most Americans are just trudging along - on the rat wheel - desperately chasing the cheese. No time to think about anything else....

I don't know which way it will go. I am only confident about feeling certain that this moment in human history will be a defining one for us and any possible future generations.

I'm trying to do my bit by reading and listening to indigenous voices from the region - and share as much of what I learn as possible. I'm also on the streets 2-3 times a week proudly holding a sign with others.
I am strongly in solidarity with the Palestinian people's right to defend themselves against the murderous policies of the US and Israel. I oppose war$ but understand that ever since Washington slaughtered millions of native people throughout Central & North America this has been a nation wedded to extreme violence and crude criminality. 
So I am always in support of people defending themselves from Mr. Big.
Sometimes you just have to say no more and actually mean it.
