ALAN MACLEOD-The plan to build new bases will be seen in Iran as an attempt to tighten the noose around it more tightly. There are already over 65,000 American military personnel in neighboring countries. The U.S. continues to occupy Iraq and Afghanistan since the invasions launched in the wake of the 2001 World Trade Center attacks.

GRACIELA RAMIREZ—Massacring the population is legal in Chile if the President in turn considers it necessary. A massacre, this is what soldiers in uniform and also civilians are doing, shooting at their own people; a massacre by fiercely beating and detaining citizens unjustifiably, without distinguishing if they are under age; “Chile is governed by the civilians of the military dictatorship, those who were never prosecuted because they were protected by Pinochet’s Constitution,” Mrs. Lagos said.

TONY CARTALUCCI—For comparison – the British – whose empire has long since collapsed – are still invested deeply in geopolitical machinations around the globe in a bid to claw back power and influence it had lost during the World Wars. Toward that end, the British have aided and abetted US imperialism ever since – with its troops following the US into virtually every war of aggression fought by the West over the past half century.

RAINER SHEA—Fly and the other power players within the empire are attempting to influence world events by controlling the flow of information. It’s crucial to them that the Western public view the current geopolitical developments through the American-centric, pro-imperialist lens through which the government presents current events.

PATRICK LAWRENCE—Preposterous, readers. Join me, please, in having absolutely none of it. There is no “Russian actor” at the bottom of this swamp, to put my position bluntly. You will never, ever be offered persuasive evidence otherwise. Reluctantly, I credit the Clinton campaign and the DNC with reading American paranoia well enough such that they may make this junk stick. In a clear sign the entire crowd-control machine is up and running, The New York Times had a long, unprofessional piece about Russian culprits in its Monday editions. It followed Mook’s lead faithfully: not one properly supported fact, not one identified “expert,” and more conditional verbs than you’ve had hot dinners — everything cast as “could,” “might,” “appears,” “would,” “seems,” “may.” Nothing, once again, as to the very serious implications of this affair for the American political process.
