Permanent War: Official US Policy


America threatens humanity with survival.

by Stephen Lendman

Nations don't wage permanent wars and survive. Imagine one calling itself a democracy trying.

Washington spends more on militarism and imperial wars than the rest of the world combined. At the same time, vital domestic needs go begging.

America lives by the sword. One day it'll perish by it. Perhaps so will humanity. 

The more wars it wages and longer they continue, the faster homeland and international support erodes.

What can't go on forever won't. Since 9/11 alone, Paul Craig Roberts says "11 years of failure" hasn't deterred America's rage to fight. 

"(T)he same Washington con artists who have produced a decade of bloodshed and destruction to no worthwhile effect are now preparing more wars doomed to failure." 

"More ambitious than ever, Washington, now arrayed against Iran, is lining up against Russia and China as well."

Out-of-control militarism is happening at a time the "government (is) deep in debt with a broken economy and a broken financial system."

Add "drowning in hubris," hypocrisy, psychopathic hegemony disorder, and contempt for human life, democratic values, and rule of law principles. 

No nation caused more harm to more people than any other in history by a wide margin. Unless stopped, perhaps it'll exceed the worst of all others combined.

In the meantime, one nation after another is ravaged. Syrians are battling to survive. US proxy killers murder them. The battle for Aleppo rages. More on what's known below.
