U.S. Military Industrial Complex Needs War

Along with the “collapse” of the US economy and military, the United States is failing to achieve its goal of dominating the world, says a political commentator.
“The US wants to be the ruler of the world on behalf of corporate interests,” said Bruce Gagnon, secretary and coordinator at the Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space, in an interview with Press TV on Sunday.
He was commenting on reports that the US Air Force recently test-dropped an upgraded gravity nuclear bomb to see whether its aircraft can carry the deadly weapon.
The B61-12 bomb, which was the first of the upgraded B-61 variant, was dropped by an F-16 Fighting Falcon jet over the Nellis Test and Training Range Complex in Nevada.
According to the Maine-based analyst, recent attempts for extension of the B61-12 bomb’s life to replace four ageing versions of the B61 in the US nuclear arsenal are part of the US continued effort to dominate the world.
“The US is telling North Korea, Iran, Russia and China that you must surrender to our domination or we will destroy you. Washington and its aggressive NATO (the North Atlantic Treaty Organization) allies are the world’s pirates. They see the writing on the wall: A multi-polar world in coming, where one nation cannot claim to run the entire planet,” he noted.

US after ‘decapitating’ attacks
The Friday report was released amid an escalation between Washington and Pyongyang, over North Korea’s nuclear tests.
“The US and its allies, like Israel, the United Kingdom, France and other nuclear powers, routinely test these systems; Today the Pentagon is testing nuclear and non-nuclear weapons and missile systems to enable Washington to deliver a decapitating first strike attack,” said the political commentator.
Gagnon further asserted that Washington’s escalation in East Asia over North Korea’s nuclear tests demonstrates the US “hypocrisy” in dealing with the matter.
“The US is desperate to hang on to its power but the military empire of more than 800 bases is collapsing before our eyes and the US domestic economy is also collapsing due to our addiction to war and military spending,” said the American analyst.

Geert Mak Pleit Nu Voor Vriendschap met Rusland

Ik kwam zojuist mijn oude vriend, de bestseller-auteur en mainstream-opiniemaker Geert Mak in de regen op straat tegen. Na elkaar te hebben begroet, vertelde Geert mij dat hij van oordeel is dat Europa zo snel mogelijk met Rusland om de tafel moet gaan zitten, om de opgelopen spanningen te deëscaleren. De VS heeft heel andere belangen dan 'wij,' aldus Mak, die benadrukte dat de macht van 'onze' Atlantische bondgenoot ingrijpend aan het afnemen is. Kortom, ik hoorde wat ikzelf al enige jaren op mijn weblog schrijf. Opvallend hoe een Nederlandse opiniemaker binnen zo'n betrekkelijk korte tijd zo wezenlijk van oordeel kan veranderen.  Immers, Mak’s gevaarlijke anti-Rusland hetze was een treffend voorbeeld van zijn opportunisme. Mei 2014 beweerde op de Hilversumse televisie de zogeheten ‘chroniqueur van Amsterdam, Nederland, Europa en de VS,’ dat er sprake was van een 'Russische gevaar,’ aangezien ‘meneer Poetin’ aan ‘landjepik’ deed en dat de Russische president d…

Native American Rape Survivors

A sign marks the entrance to White Earth Indian Reservation in Mahnomen County, Minn. (J. Stephen Conn / CC 2.0) WHITE EARTH RESERVATION, Minn.—Candice (not her real name) awoke with a start. Someone was pulling down her sweatpants. It was a male friend. “Stop!” she shouted. He kept groping her. She kicked him and he fell off the bed. She dashed out of the bedroom, tripping and tumbling down the stairs. Gripped with fear, she heard his footsteps behind her in the dark and forced herself to stand upright as she staggered out to the porch. Candice was still intoxicated. She got into her car and drove into a ditch. A white police officer pulled up. She struggled to hold back tears as she told him about the attempted rape. All the officer saw was a drunk and disorderly Native American woman. He dismissed Candice’s report of sexual assault as a lie she had made up to avoid getting a DUI. He did not take her to the hospital for a forensic exam. The sexual assault was not recorded in his pol…
