Nuclear Hypocrisy Here we have Kerry in Hiroshima with his hands dripping in blood from Syria, Yemen and Ukraine talking about war as a last resort. As the US-NATO are holding war games all along the Russian border he is talking about the need to "rededicate all our effort to avoid war".

Obama's Nuclear Summit - It Wasn't.... The ultimate goal of the Obama summit was to reinforce the notion that the US still runs the world. The US wants a unipolar world - but the multi-polar world is here to stay.

Peace Movement Ebbs & Flows Depending on Which Party is in Office So here is my prediction. If Hillary gets elected the missing Democratic Party peaceniks (the ones who have Obama bumper stickers on their cars right next to the bumper stickers that read 'War is not the answer') will stay missing. If Trump (or any other Republican) gets elected the ranks of the peace movement will again swell with outraged Democrats who will criticize every drone mission that a Republican president flies.

Fighting to Save Okinawan Nature and Culture There is much talk about whether the Okinawan delegation to DC will be successful in changing US policy. Considering that Obama won't even answer letters from elected officials on Okinawa does not give one much confidence that US policy is likely to change anytime soon. But don't be fooled by inside-Washington baseball. The real change is taking place in the hearts of people on Okinawa, in Japan, and throughout the world.

U.S. on Wrong Side of History Obama announced that that he would streamline weapon sales and increase joint military exercises with Bahrain (home to US Navy Central Command and the Fifth Fleet), Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates as part of an "iron-clad commitment" that the United States will help protect them against their neighbor and rival Iran.

Neocons Plan: Chaos and Regime Change in Russia What is the plan? Continue to expand US-NATO bases up to the Russian border including Ukraine. Deploy so-called "missile defense" systems that are key elements in Pentagon first-strike attack planning. From eastern Ukraine US cruise missiles could reach beyond the Urals, where Russia's main nuclear forces are located.

Where Do These Warships Go? It should be remembered that following the collapse of the former Soviet Union US Secretary of State James Baker promised Mikhail Gorbachev, the last leader of the Soviet Union, that NATO would not expand "one inch" to the east toward Russia. The Native Americans always warned that "the Great White Father in Washington speaks with a forked tongue".

Militarization of America - We've Become a Failed State Our country has become a failed state. Our children's future is bleak. Rank-and-file liberals don't have much to say. Obama has been a god-send to the corporate oligarchy. He has kept his base in check. Hillary Clinton would do the same.

U.S.-NATO Threaten Wider War in Ukraine US-NATO are counting on Russia to continue to defend the beleaguered civilians in eastern Ukraine and intend to use that fact to expand their international campaign to demonize Putin and Russia. The US-NATO endgame is 'regime change' in Russia.

Exploding Navy Budget Threatens Food Stamps The cost overruns in Navy shipbuilding are massive. The profits for the weapons corporations are huge. But even with the Pentagon's damn near total control of the federal budget there is still even more $$$ needed for the expensive Navy warships, new fighter jets, satellites, and launch vehicles the military industrial complex wants to build.

US Prepares to Sell Saudi Arabia Warships to Help Take Down Iran Most interesting of all is that US shipyard workers would be building warships for a brutal and unforgiving monarchy that is known for making ISIS look like amateurs. Saudi Arabia is one of the last places on earth where capital punishment is a public spectacle - carried out in what is called Chop Chop Square in Riyadh.

Space Technology's Role in Corporate Destruction of the Planet We have become an occupied nation. The corporate oligarchy that runs the show in Washington uses space-based technologies to spy on us and to direct all warfare on the planet. In a way, you could call today's expensive military satellites the "triggers" that make the high-tech weapons like drones and missiles work.

Normalizing Militarized Culture With our mounting economic and environmental crisis the answer from the ruling oligarchy is more militarization. The photo of Rick Perry is illustrative of that fact. Everything in America is stage managed - an endless public relations campaign -- Disney style. We are being led by this PR campaign to support a particular direction and it ain't for our benefit.
