Permanent War: Longstanding US Policy

Stephen Lendman

Wars define America. They reflect longstanding policy. They're permanent. They've been waged every year in the nation's history. They target enemies at home and abroad. When none exist, they're invented. Peace is a non-starter. It's always been that way. It never had a chance. It doesn't now. It's systematically spurned.

America's culture reflects belligerence. It's glorified in the name of peace. It's normal and commonplace. Pacifism is considered sissy and unpatriotic. America the Beautiful never existed. It doesn't now. Peace, human dignity, and democratic values are more illusion than reality. Enormous sums go for militarism and war. Unconscionable amounts are spent today. More on that below.

Vital needs go begging. Things go from bad to worse. Endless wars continue. One leads to others. Ravaging the world one country at a time or in multiples is policy.

Paul Craig Roberts is right. He calls America

"a lost land where nuclear weapons are in the hands of those who are concerned only with their own power." "Washington is the enemy of the entire world and encompasses the largest concentration of evil on the planet."

It is systematically destroying it one country at a time. It has got oceans of blood on its hands. It is responsible for tens of millions of deaths. Its human rights record is by far the world's worst. It is unprincipled and unconscionable. Its rap sheet includes diabolical crimes of war, against humanity and genocide. They persist worldwide.

UK Prime Minister Cameron stokes fires of war against North Korea

Chris Marsden

"Inspection"...PM David Cameron checks out Trident nuclear sub.

Hitler’s propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels, who knew a great deal about such techniques himself, once remarked,

“The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.”

Prime Minister David Cameron is intent on continuing such practices. He chose an April 4 visit to Scotland to claim that it is a “fact” that North Korea has the technology to attack both the United States and the United Kingdom with a nuclear missile.

“How concerned am I about North Korea? Very concerned, it has extremely dangerous technologies in terms of nuclear and its weapons… The fact is, as I wrote in a newspaper article this morning, North Korea does now have missile technology that is able to reach, as they put it, the whole of the United States and if they’re able to reach the whole of the United States they can reach Europe too. They can reach us too, so that is a real concern.”

The claim is a flat-out lie, as many authoritative voices have pointed out. James Hardy, Asia Pacific Editor of Jane’s Defence Weekly, commented,

“From what we know of its existing inventory, North Korea has short and medium range missiles that could complicate a situation on the Korean Peninsula (and perhaps reach Japan), but we have not seen any evidence that it has long-range missiles that could strike the continental US, Guam or Hawaii.”

Sharing our Home with “Settlers”

Nahida Izzat, Exiled Palestinian

Muna and Muhammed are 12-year-old twins living in Sheikh Jarrah, East Jerusalem. Settlers have taken over the front of
their home, but the Palestinian family continue to live in the rest of the house.

Like most dispossessed Palestinians, revolutionary Arabs, vilified Muslims, and decent human beings, I believe:

No decent human-being would demand to live on STOLEN land and STOLEN homes and still claim to have a fiber of morality.

No decent human-being could claim that the perpetrator should have the same rights as the victim while claiming to be a humanist.

Palestinians are under no obligation to hold back their march for freedom, to curtail their aims or to smother their rights for the sake of accommodating and not offending their Jewish supporters.

Palestinians are always grateful and appreciative of the hard work and dedication of all their supporters whomever they are, however, Palestinians have NO obligation to adopt the aims and objectives of the anti-zionist Jewish supporters instead of their own.

Dismissing the Palestinian voice as radical, reactionary, intolerant, or unreasonable, and requiring instead the Jewish-anti-zionist stamp of approval to have legitimacy to speak for Palestine, is preposterous and contradicts basic concepts of human rights and does not do justice to Palestinians.
