Weakened US Unable To Fight More Wars

Weakened US Unable To Fight More Wars

While America talks going to war in Europe, those who follow the real condition of America’s military forces, active duty, reserve and veterans, they know it to be nothing but empty talk. Over a dozen years of war has left America’s military manpower exhausted, physically, mentally and “politically.”

US Caught in Web of Lies

US Caught in Web of Lies

America has found itself in an untenable situation in the Ukraine. As the second day of military incursions by the coup backed Kiev government proceed in the East, the Obama administration has begun to realize that it has been “blindsided.”

Meeting with Enemy

Meeting with Enemy

Though, as a member of Veterans For Peace and a philosophy professor with a focus on war and ethics, I have often discussed my impressions and insights about war and its aftermath in the classroom, at conferences and with civic groups, I had never had such discussions with someone who had been my “enemy.”

Why America Must Have an Anti-War Uprising (from 2010)

Why America Must Have an Anti-War Uprising (from 2010)

The vast majority of Americans didn’t have 30 seconds a day to watch news about the war, not a minute a month to think about it, much less do something, take a stand for what was right.

I thought maybe he just needed to rant a bit, to blow off steam. I can certainly understand his frustration given the state of the world and the way his teachings have been ignored, misinterpreted, and exploited by those who claim to be his followers. Or maybe he just wanted to talk with someone he could trust to just listen and not distort his words for their advantage or to the disadvantage of other human beings.

Now That Parades Have Ended

Now That Parades Have Ended

Now that the parades have ended and veterans have enjoyed the “heartfelt gratitude” of an appreciative nation (and a free meal, from a “select menu” at Applebees), I would ask veterans, as they resume their lives of anonymity and neglect, to put aside, for a moment, all the bunk we have been fed over the years from those who were not there.

World Jewry Pushing World Towards War Against Iran

World Jewry Pushing World Towards War Against Iran

Israel’s Diaspora Affairs Minister Naftali Bennett last night, November 8, 2013, sent a letter to the powerful Israel lobby group in the US, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, as well as to other branches of world Jewry around the globe, telling them to put pressure on the Gentile nations in which they reside to stop them from signing an agreement with Iran regarding its nuclear program.
