The Arctic region is loaded with oil and natural gas and with extreme melting of the ice the oil corporations are itching to get at it. But look at a map to see which country has the largest land border with the Arctic... it is Russia. Thus we see this intense US-NATO move toward militarization.

The US-NATO like to claim that their missile offense deployments increasingly encircling Russia and China are intended to protect against possible nuclear strikes from Iran or North Korea. Iran and North Korea though are the bogey-men. The real prize is the final corporate takeover of the Russian and Chinese economies, and in the case of Russia, the world's leading supply of natural gas.

Sometimes I just shake my head in disbelief.... the recent US-China military near hit (the second time in recent months) indicates that our nation is pushing this power trip thing way too hard. This game is being ramped up to create "China fear" in the hearts and minds of the people (here and around the world). China says it is not rolling over. Someone or something eventually has to give way...

Imagine just for a moment if China, or any other country, began moving 60% of their military forces within shooting range of the US Atlantic and Pacific coasts. Imagine if that same country was establishing military bases in Mexico or Canada. The US government would be freaking out. Then further imagine that same country flying spy plane and bombers up along our coast.

An attack on Syria will at the least expend lots of Tomahawk cruise missiles. We've become a killer nation. We have to have endless war, like a drunk needs a drink at the bar, in order for American workers to put food on the tables for their families. What does this say about the soul of our nation?
SHARE Thursday, August 8, 2013 Arsenal of Hypocrisy
Any hopes for real negotiations for serious reductions in nuclear weapons between the major powers will not be possible in this day and age. Why? Simply because Obama, and the Congress, insist on surrounding Russia and China with so-called "missile defense" systems.

The Obama administration's announcement that a "missile defense" base on the east coast of the U.S. will now be studied is the perfect example of a corporate-driven "solution" searching for a problem.
The studies have been justified by the supposed "nuclear threats posed by North Korea and Iran".
