Is Washington Fighting Russia Down to the Last Ukrainian?

As the Russian invasion of Ukraine moves past its third week, there are slight hopes that negotiations between the two sides may soon produce a ceasefire. But with the shrill warmongering talk in Washington, it almost seems like the US government would hate to see that happen. Congress and the US Administration seem determined to … Continue reading “Is Washington Fighting Russia Down to the Last Ukrainian?”

Ukraine Crisis: A Nightmare Caused by US Interventionism

Over the weekend we heard that the US is evacuating its embassy in Kiev for fear of a Russian invasion. We also heard that Russia is evacuating its embassy in Kiev for fear of a US-backed provocation in eastern Ukraine that may lead to a Russian military response. We are in “uncharted territory” the media … Continue reading “Ukraine Crisis: A Nightmare Caused by US Interventionism”

Washington’s Bi-Partisan Russia-Bashers Are Determined To Start a War

Russia-bashing is a bi-partisan activity in Washington. Both parties think it makes them look “tough” and “pro-America.” But while Republican and Democrat politicians continue to one-up each other on “risk-free” threats to Russia, they are increasingly risking a devastating nuclear war. It’s all fun and games until the missiles start flying. And in this case … Continue reading “Washington’s Bi-Partisan Russia-Bashers Are Determined To Start a War”

Biden’s ‘Democracy Summit’ Is a Joke

On December 9-10 President Biden will preside over an online “Summit for Democracy,” which claims it will “bring together leaders from government, civil society, and the private sector to set forth an affirmative agenda for democratic renewal and to tackle the greatest threats faced by democracies today through collective action.” What a joke. This is … Continue reading “Biden’s ‘Democracy Summit’ Is a Joke”

Twenty Years On, We’ve Learned Nothing From 9/11

Nothing upset the Washington Beltway elites more than when in a 2007 presidential debate I pointed out the truth about the 9/11 attacks: they attacked us because we’ve been in the Middle East, sanctioning and bombing the civilian population, for decades. The 9/11 attackers were not motivated to commit suicide terrorism on the Twin Towers … Continue reading “Twenty Years On, We’ve Learned Nothing From 9/11”

Afghanistan: A Tragically Stupid War Comes to a Tragic End

Sunday’s news reports that the Biden Administration mistakenly killed nine members of one Afghan family, including six children, in “retaliation” for last week’s suicide attack which killed 13 US servicemembers, is a sad and sick epitaph on the 20 year Afghanistan war. Promising to “get tough” on ISIS, which suddenly re-emerged to take responsibility for … Continue reading “Afghanistan: A Tragically Stupid War Comes to a Tragic End”

Kabul Has Fallen – But Don’t Blame Biden

This weekend the US experienced another "Saigon moment," this time in Afghanistan. After a 20 year war that drained trillions from Americans’ pockets, the capital of Afghanistan fell without a fight. The corrupt Potemkin regime that the US had been propping up for two decades and the Afghan military that we had spent billions training … Continue reading “Kabul Has Fallen – But Don’t Blame Biden”

Conscription: Equality in Slavery

The Senate Armed Services Committee approved last month a National Defense Authorization Act that includes a requirement that women register with Selective Service on their 18th birthday. If the bill becomes law with this provision included and a military draft is reinstated, women will be forced to join the military, and America will have equality … Continue reading “Conscription: Equality in Slavery”

It’s Saigon in Afghanistan

The end of the 20-year US war on Afghanistan was predictable: no one has conquered Afghanistan, and Washington was as foolish as Moscow in the 1970s for trying. Now, US troops are rushing out of the country as fast as they can, having just evacuated the symbol of the US occupation of Afghanistan, Bagram Air … Continue reading “It’s Saigon in Afghanistan”
