Isn't that nice? While some like to point to specific people... CONSTANTLY and obsessively, ... because it makes them believe that if these figures were removed, all would be well...

The system goes on regardless.

Not saying these individuals dont deserve to be held accountable and held to justice, but to think the individual is the root only leads to more tail chasing.

They make the rules. We play by them. That is a problem.

"There are 54 different countries on Earth that the U.S. is legally obligated to militarily protect and defend if they get into their own conflicts."

And, I thought the days of imperialism and hegemony were over! Silly me!

Completely, absolutely and 100% out of control.

Absolutely! And, the U.S. has 460 military bases abroad! And, if you pay tax in America, you are paying for this crap. Unbelievable! Maddening!

''The world needs to understand that the neoconservative US government is the Third Reich on steroids. It is a malevolent force with no sense of justice or respect for truth, law, or human life. Just ask the residents of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Palestine, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Lebanon, Honduras, Venezuela, Cuba, Iran. Even the deluded western Ukrainians will soon catch on.

''Obama himself declared that the US is “the exceptional nation.” This is the neoconservatives version of Hitler’s declaration that the German nation was exceptional and, therefore, above all others. The only difference between Washington and National Socialist Germany is that Washington has a far more powerful police state and nuclear weapons.

''No government in human history can come close to the hypocrisy and malevolence of Washington. Armed with nuclear weapons and a military doctrine of pre-emptive nuclear first strike, Washington alone stands as the threat to life on earth.'' from :

PCR was right at the heart of the USG for long enough to know and his perspective carries weight imo.

''No government in human history can come close to the hypocrisy and malevolence of Washington.

Truth. And its hard to imagine a scenario where another takes over and is more in control than we currently are.

It would literally take the entire planet teaming up against us, and I think that is going to be a possibility soon.

By way of corroboration of your comment, consider :

Furthermore, while The Empire flexes and spasms abroad in pursuit of 'Neoliberal Bankster Interests', there is a concomitant deeply troubling creeping militarisation at home during these 'austerity' times :

Meanwhile, ''while the biggest geopolitical tectonic shift since the cold war accelerates with the inevitable firming of the "Asian axis", the west monetizes its debt, revels in the paper wealth created from an all time high manipulated stock market while at the same time trying to explain why 6.5% unemployment is really indicative of a weak economy, blames the weather for every disappointing economic data point, and every single person is transfixed with finding a missing airplane.'' from ...

caveat ....

You mean when I voted for peace and equality it was a scam?! :)

Sorry buddy but yEP !! ''If voting changed anything - they'd ban it'' (EG). Also consider :

'P&E' can't be voted for or granted perhaps - but has to struggled for and achieved ~*~

Extremely interesting article. Sanctions on Russian gas just as the D/R gang along with the oil cartel are ramping up fracking to send to the planet.

I also like the take that giving the naval base to Russia is no problem, as it gave them justifications for the sanctions.

Probably some of the best analysis yet. Thanks.

You obviously don't know what a war zone looks like. I suggest you sign up and go if you think its so trivial.

So, you think I'm an ass do you? You are aware your taxes paid my salary.

These are the two posts in question that the other poster is referring to. I appreciate all feedback on them:

I am of the belief that until we realize our own failures we will be stuck playing the blame game.

Notice how he did NOT say that Iraq was worse than Detroit. That's evidence enough for me.

[-] 0 points by carlylesanders (1) from New Hope, PA 7 months ago

Well, on a personal level it was worth it. I saved the lives of many comrades. I also saved the lives of some Iraqis who were treated extremely badly by the regime. I was a radar expert. Didn't work on the war terrain. I was stationed far away in war ships.
