RAINER SHEA—Being so far unable to militarily achieve regime change in Syria, Iran, Venezuela, or any of its other rival nations, the U.S. is increasingly resorting to sanctions and manufactured internal unrest to try to subdue them. The U.S. maintains a covert Syria-to-Xinjiang pipeline of violent religious extremism which is aimed at radicalizing Uighur Muslims, resulting in heightened threats of terrorist attacks within China. This is connected to the Hong Kong protests, which the U.S. has been funding and encouraging through agitation propaganda. The U.S. keeps escalating sanctions against its adversaries, especially Russia and China due to their crucial role in militarily protecting smaller countries like Syria and Venezuela.

SOUTHFRONT—Senate Minority Leader Sen. Charles Schumer said on October 13th that he’ll demand a vote this week to oppose President Trump’s troop withdrawal from Syria. “The president has been derelict in his duties,” Schumer said. “He’s making Americans much less safe, and undoing years of work to curb ISIS and he’s making America much more susceptible to terrorism by his actions. He may not have intended to do that, but that’s just what’s happening as a result of his actions.”

PETER KOENIG—But most interesting are the hypocrites, those who write and scream that Venezuelans are starving to death, that the Maduro government neglects its people – yet these accusers-in-falsehood – let the US and her vassals strangle Venezuela and steal her foreign assets, including foreign reserves and gold, food and medical imports – they are saying zilch, nada, nothing. Just watching.

JOHN SHUCK—This is my fourth episode in my series on 9/11. Most will dismiss this as a conspiracy theory as the CIA and its obedient media have instructed us. But some will open their minds and face the evidence. Opening minds is what we do on Progressive Spirit. Already in this series, I have spoken with psychotherapist, Frances Shure, who is writing a series of articles entitled, “Why Do Good People Become Silent or Worse About 9/11.”

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—As we’ve discussed previously, starvation sanctions are in many ways worse than overt warfare, because they can be just as deadly while eliminating the protective public outcry and accountability that comes with conventional warfare. Sanctions are the only form of warfare where it is considered both legal and acceptable to deliberately target a civilian population with deadly force. And this is exactly why the US-centralized empire prefers economic warfare to conventional warfare.
