What can reasoned ones do to stop them? React, stay informed, tell others, and agitate like hell to stop them.

A Final Comment

Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) countries have potential clout. Key is strengthening ties and using it. From August 26 - 31, member states hold their 16th summit . Tehran is host city. 

Rotating chairs head NAM. Summits are occasions when host country heads of state become secretary-general. Prestige comes with it.

Iranian leaders want NAM economic independence stressed. They'll try to revitalize the alliance and seek support for its peaceful nuclear program. They also urge resistance against Washington's imperial agenda.

An impressive summit looms. After toing and froing for days, reports says UN Secretary-General Bank Ki-moon will attend. Israeli, Western and scoundrel media pressure tried dissuading him. Apparently it failed.

On August 18, the Tehran Times said about 100 countries committed to attend. Forty-one plan high-level participation. 

They'll send 35 heads of state, five first vice presidents or vice presidents, and one parliament speaker. Twenty-one nations will send foreign ministers. Presidential envoys will represent five countries. Two others will have ministerial leaders other than their foreign minister.

In addition, deputy ministers, directors general, and UN ambassadors are coming. Some countries have yet to confirm names so more top officials may join others already committed.

At issue is potential for strengthening cooperative, mutually beneficial, ties. Key also is enhancing Iran's status. Doing so marginalizes America's strategy to co-opt and dominate. 

Perhaps Japan one day will grow up and decide it benefits the same way. Its future depends more on Asia than Washington. That coming of age may inspire other nations to do the same thing. 

What better way to beat the empire, prosper, and live in peace.
