Ukraina har rätt till självbestämmande, men vi ingen skyldighet att försvara den rätten

För i vågskålen ligger världsfreden. Kom ihåg: det blir inget konventionellt krig såsom det senaste, det mellan 1939-45, utan nu kommer kontrahenterna slunga kärnvapen mot varandra.

Och med tanke på att USA använde kärnvapen mot Japan, så vet vi att hämningarna mot att använda massförstörelsevapen inte existerar.

Vänsterretorik? Ja, enligt neokonservativa och folkpartister. Men man måste nog vara neokonservativ för att anse att krig är konservativt. Normalkonservativa oroar sig för all egendom och kultur som förstörs och alla människor som slaktas.

Känner mig som musen som röt. Eller än tystare. Med andra ord, denna postning är enbart terapeutisk.

Man sitter här alltså i väntrummet för att få träffa Liemannen. Tredje världskriget.

Tänker på min gode vän, pro-amerikanen och hedersmedlem i ett amerikanskt regemente. Hur vi var samsynta på 90-talet, men sedan Irakkriget gått skilda vägar, varför vi undviker ämnet politik.

Kommer vår vänskap att klara mitt fördömande av den amerikanska politiken? Ämnenas antal krymper.

Gick in på Contras diskussionsforum. Ingen verklighetskontakt. Nostalgiforum för oss som var antikommunister och pro-amerikaner under Kalla kriget. But it’s a different game now!

When I began Antiwar.com in December 1995, a Democrat named Bill Clinton was in the White House. His foreign policy was bellicose yet largely supported by the Washington establishment. As the president bombed Iraq, Serbia, Bosnia, Kosovo, and Sudan, it was out of fashion to be antiwar, and opposing the U.S. Empire was left to a few ”extremists” on both ends of the spectrum.

Since then, my ”hobby” has blossom into the most important and widely read pro-peace site online. Every day, our small but dedicated staff searches far and wide to find and publicize news and analysis that the mainstream media excludes.

Antiwar.com’s popularity boomed in response to George W. Bush’s post-9/11 global war on terror, especially his invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. But remember: it was U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East in the 1990s and before that led to the blowback of 9/11, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the accompanying assault on our liberties.

Barack Obama promised to end the worst excesses of the Bush administration. Instead, he and members of his administration lead the U.S. into violent intrigues in Pakistan, Yemen, and Ukraine in addition to instigating chaos in Libya, Syria, and Egypt. Meanwhile, Guantánamo remains open, sanctions on Iran remain, and the militarization of domestic law enforcement exacerbates policy brutality.

To think that people once saw Barack Obama as the ”antiwar candidate.”

The costs of war – in lives, dollars, and our liberties – are the same regardless of the party in power. The world needs a consistent and honest source in foreign policy reporting. That’s Antiwar.com. We are needed more than ever – and we need you to keep us afloat.

We don’t have a huge staff with cushy jobs, living it up on your donations. We appreciate every penny (and bitcoin.) We work around the clock. As webmaster and general manager, I work seven days a week, from six in the morning till ten at night – and those are the quiet days.

We don’t take your support for granted. Please don’t take us for granted, either. While the harshest critics of U.S. foreign policy have been proven right, their voices are muted by the ”mainstream” media.

Don’t let our voice be stilled. Please help us continue to expose the Empire’s lies.
