Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac. -George Orwell

It’s represented as a threat to national security, a war on terrorism or a war on drugs.

Since the war on drugs started in the Nixon era, what have we accomplished?

  1. Mass Incarceration (We have more people in prisons than any other country, 25% of the world’s prisoners.);
  2. An  opioid crisis that’s killing our children;
  3. A police state.

Why? Prisons are not only profitable they are warehouses for cheap labor.

What has the war on terror accomplished?

  1. A dramatic increase in domestic terrorism, almost a weekly occurrence (no one knows as this information is not readily available);
  2. A refugee crisis in the Middle East;
  3. Global discrimination/violence against Muslims.

Both wars are still being fought.   Now the Trump regime plans to double down on the same failed strategies.  Why?  America is the number one arms supplier to the world.

There are other reasons for Americas’ wars.  Divide and conquer to support white supremacy by disrupting non-white communities and their culture. Why?  I believe you know why.

    That was in September 2015. Now you have a real war aficionado in the saddle. Bang, bang! And the worst thing is………people are obeying this war-sissy.

      1. If he is reelected then it just has to be rigged! I mean I know there are a lot of awful people in this country.. But my God there are enough of them to reelect this monster?! I guess I shouldn’t be surprised when or if it happens.

        1. Hi Caleb, these people are the personification of evil. They are giddy with evil. It’s like they were let into heaven and now own it.

    1. Good article! US Power Elite is leap years ahead of us. They probably have medicines and special shelters that allow them to survive any climate change, chemical or nuclear warfare.
      Have a great weekend
