Peter Van Buren: Soldier Boy, for Veteran’s Day

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 05:42:27 +0000

Perhaps only ancient Sparta claimed to support its military more than the United States. From the “soldiers in uniform board first” rituals that happen only in American airports, to politics where a decision not to serve is forever held against a candidate, there are reminders that America’s troops are a presence in our society like … Continue reading "Peter Van Buren: Soldier Boy, for Veteran’s Day"

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 17:46:20 +0000

According to a new study by Brown University’s Watson Institute, the real cost of the US wars since 9/11 is three times the Pentagon’s estimate. Some $5.6 trillion have been spent on the endless global war. The total costs of 16 years of war are even higher, and they extend beyond just finance. Today on … Continue reading "The Real Cost Of War: Three Times More Than The Government Admits"



Dennis Kucinich Discusses the ‘Permanent Government’ Behind US Foreign Intervention

In a recent interview with host Wilmer Leon at the Inside the Issues show, former presidential candidate and United States House of Representatives Member Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) discussed how what Kucinich terms the “permanent government” has worked to ensure the United States continues pursuing destructive foreign interventions and to keep America “at the precipice of … Continue reading "Dennis Kucinich Discusses the ‘Permanent Government’ Behind US Foreign Intervention"



National Defense versus Global (In)Security

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 16:28:04 +0000

Our government likes to talk about global security, which in their minds is basically synonymous with homeland security. They argue that the best defense is a good offense, that “leaning forward in the foxhole,” or always being ready to attack, is the best way to keep Americans safe. Hence the 800 U.S. military bases in … Continue reading "National Defense versus Global (In)Security"



Rep. John Duncan: There Is Nothing Patriotic or Conservative About Our Bloated Defense Budget

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 15:49:07 +0000

Several times over my 29 years in Congress I have wondered whether there are any fiscal conservatives at the Pentagon. It seems that the Defense Department is just like every other gigantic bureaucracy. When it comes to money, the refrain is always "more, more, more." On November 14, the House passed what one Capitol Hill … Continue reading "Rep. John Duncan: There Is Nothing Patriotic or Conservative About Our Bloated Defense Budget"

Thank You, Ed Herman

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 19:49:08 +0000

Edward S. Herman died on November 11, 2017, at the age of 92. Fortunately, it was a peaceful death for a supremely peaceful man. In all he did, Ed Herman was a tireless champion of peace. Ed Herman could be considered the godfather of antiwar media critique, both because of his own contributions and because … Continue reading "Thank You, Ed Herman"



Kochs Spend Big On Foreign Policy Realism… Should Neocons Be Worried?

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 19:36:22 +0000

The neocon interventionists run Washington foreign policy. Even a Donald Trump, whose foreign policy positions during the campaign infuriated the neocons, has had his administration infiltrated with neocons. According to recent press reports, the Koch Foundation plans to spend a few million dollars promoting the “realist” school of foreign policy at major US universities. While … Continue reading "Kochs Spend Big On Foreign Policy Realism… Should Neocons Be Worried?"



Ron Paul asks: Is Trump Getting a Bad Rap On His Asia Trip?

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 00:39:49 +0000

The US media (and some neocon politicians) are furious that President Trump didn’t lecture Philippine President Duterte on human rights and that he dared speak with Russian President Putin. How dare he listen to Putin on meddling our elections and raise doubts about the US intelligence community’s conclusions! They would never lie to us…would they? … Continue reading "Ron Paul asks: Is Trump Getting a Bad Rap On His Asia Trip?"
