Things to ponder
While our media prostitutes, many Hollywood celebs, and politicians and opinion shapers make so much noise about the still to be demonstrated damage done by the Russkies to our nonexistent democracy, this is what the sanctimonious US government has done overseas just since the close of World War 2. And this is what we know about. Many other misdeeds are yet to be revealed or documented.
Parting shot—a word from the editors
The Best Definition of Donald Trump We Have Found
In his zeal to prove to his antagonists in the War Party that he is as bloodthirsty as their champion, Hillary Clinton, and more manly than Barack Obama, Trump seems to have gone “play-crazy” — acting like an unpredictable maniac in order to terrorize the Russians into forcing some kind of dramatic concessions from their Syrian allies, or risk Armageddon.However, the “play-crazy” gambit can only work when the leader is, in real life, a disciplined and intelligent actor, who knows precisely what actual boundaries must not be crossed. That ain’t Donald Trump — a pitifully shallow and ill-disciplined man, emotionally handicapped by obscene privilege and cognitively crippled by white American chauvinism.

And its multitude of minions and lackeys.
I agreed with the editor’s comment, and disagreed with essentially everything else on the page. The USA, and to a lesser degree some other nations, have been engaging in wars of choice, aggression, mass murder, for entirely selfish reasons and supported by enormous lies. It is impossible to imagine that they will “do the right thing” and fight their wars only by certain rules that make the wars “more humane.” Indeed, they have broken every rule for war that they have ever made. It is true that “our families, children and communities have a right to exist in a world… Read more »
LeftyMath is absolutely right, as usual. On all points he raises so congently. Nothing of the kind proposed by the promoter sof this campaign will be realised as long as the sociopathic capitalist plutocracy hold sthe reins of power. Only a different, truly democratic system can pursue a real peace—and the banishment and destruction of nuclear weapons.
We ran this piece in the hope of having some spillover effect on liberaloids, thereby raising the issue of “antiwar” politics, which is now totally burried unde rthe anti-Trump obsession and identity politics.
