The Expanding War on the World

How America Spreads Global Chaos

Nicolas J.S. Davies | October 31, 2017

The U.S. government may pretend to respect a “rules-based” global order, but the only rule Washington seems to follow is “might makes right” — and the CIA has long served as a chief instigator and enforcer, writes Nicolas J.S. Davies.

As the recent PBS documentary on the American War in Vietnam acknowledged, few American officials ever believed that the United States could win the war, neither those advising Johnson as he committed hundreds of thousands of U.S. troops, nor those advising Nixon as he escalated a brutal aerial bombardment that had already killed millions of people.

War on the World, Trump Style

World Can't Wait | July 26, 2017

Donald Trump brags, stating in his inauguration speech: “We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital and in every hall of power. From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this day forward, it's going to be only America first - America first.” He says he will "fill up" Guantánamo with "bad guys" and may direct the military to openly torture. He promises HUGE increases in military spending, and expansion of the military. Since Trump has been Commander in Chief civilian casualties have spiked. And now, Trump is threatening North Korea, and the entire planet, with nuclear war. How should we respond and resist?

Yemen in the Crosshairs: Trump's Decision to Visit Saudi Arabia First Speaks Volumes

World Can't Wait | May 8, 2017

yemenboy"If you care at all about children starving to death and selling billions of dollars worth of deadly weapons to one of the most brutal and repressive regimes on earth," notes journalist Danielle Ryan, "the only message Trump's visit to Riyadh will send is that barbaric contempt for basic human rights is tolerable so long as you serve Washington's financial and military interests. . . Trump hates radical Islam, except when you can make money from it."

Mother of All Bombers

World Can't Wait | April 13, 2017

Today the US military, at Trump's order, dropped an 11-ton bomb on Nangarhar province in eastern Afghanistan. It is being called the "mother" of all bombs - the largest bomb dropped in any war since the United States nuked Hiroshima and Nagasaki. No to wars for empire and no to the "mother" of all bombers, the Trump/Pence Regime. We are still learning the effect of this explosion, but it is an escalation only one step away from full-scale nuclear war on a nation onwhich our government has been waging war for 16 years.

Why the Democrats Cheer Trump When He Wages War…and Why We Must Not Join Them

revolution newspaper | April 10, 2017

All it took was Trump firing off 59 cruise missiles against Syria for most leading Democrats, who had been posing as staunch Trump opponents, to start singing his praises.

Senator Chuck Schumer said it was "the right thing to do." The "militant" Senator Elizabeth Warren said the "Syrian regime must be held accountable." The "radical" Bernie Sanders condemned Assad as a "war criminal" while mildly criticizing the war criminal Trump for not consulting Congress first.

General Flynn's War on Islam is a Cancer Without Bounds

Curt Wechsler | January 3, 2017

trumpflynn-thumb-300x270-2800"Rightist governments in Hungary and Poland are already cheering Trump's anti-Muslim rhetoric" warns Washington Post editor Jackson Diehl; "the more moderate of the two leading candidates to become France's next president, François Fillon, authored a book titled Conquering Islamic Totalitarianism. Even Germany's Angela Merkel, the most prominent remaining defender of liberal democratic values, felt obliged to strike an anti-Islamic pose last week, proposing a crackdown on the minuscule number of German women who wear a burqa."'

Donald Trump's Cabinet of Generals Grows

Curt Wechsler | December 8, 2016

From the tributes paid to Trump's nominee for Secretary of Defense you'd expect retired Marine Corps General "Mad Dog" Mattis to be some kind of 'warrior poet'. Dig a little deeper. His quips about warfare are neither amusing nor benign.

The "most revered Marine in a generation" advised his troops that fighting is "a hell of a hoot. It's fun to shoot some people. I'll be right up there with you. I like brawling."
