Why Chelsea Manning Could Be The Greatest Hero Of The 21st Century — Collective Evolution – March 25, 2020

(Collective Evolution)

When a federal judge ordered the release of Chelsea Manning from prison on March 12th, the news was met with relatively little fanfare. There was a kind of muted, matter-of-factness about it in the mainstream press, with much of the print devoted to procedural aspects of the release, or the fact that Ms. Manning allegedly tried to kill herself the day before, based on her lawyers’ testimony. →

WATCH: Recent Ground Footage from Syria Shows the Total Devastation of Permanent War — Waking Times – February 14, 2020

WATCH: Recent Ground Footage from Syria Shows the Total Devastation of Permanent War

Isaac Davis, Staff Writer
Waking Times

Human suffering is in no short supply on this twisted littler planet of ours, and while most everyone today has their eyes on the emerging coronavirus crisis, I was just reminded that some catastrophes have become a permanent background to everyday life.

A report issued late last year found that war on terror, which began almost 20 years ago, has officially killed over 801,000 people (and counting) and has cost U.S. taxpayers over $6.4 trillion. These numbers are so astronomical and so difficult to conceptualize that they tend to lose their impact. It’s just too boggling for the mind.

Just 3% of What the US Spends Destroying Countries Could End Starvation—On the Entire Planet — Activist Post – January 23, 2020

By Matt Agorist

(Activist Post)  It was reported this week that the Pentagon made $35 trillion — with a ‘T’ — in accounting adjustments in 2019 alone. That number is larger than the entire U.S. economy and is up from $30.7 trillion in 2018. The figure also dwarfs the Congressional approved military budget of $738 billion. Naturally, no one cares and Pentagon officials dismiss this black hole of spending as accounting errors. →

The No Bases Campaign — WORLDBEYONDWAR.org – January 11, 2020

Source(WORLDBEYONDWAR.org)

The closing of U.S. bases and the removal of U.S. military personnel are critical to the elimination of war.

The United States has more than 150,000 military troops deployed outside the United States on more than 800 bases (some estimates are more than 1000) in 160 countries, and all 7 continents. These bases are the central feature of U.S. foreign policy which is one of coercion and threat of military aggression. The U.S. uses these bases in a tangible way to preposition troops and weaponry in the event they are “needed” at a moment’s notice, and also as a manifestation of U.S. imperialism and global domination, and as a constant implicit threat. Additionally, because of a history of military aggression, countries with U.S. bases are targets for attack.

There are two principal problems with foreign military bases: →

Opposing Iran War Doesn’t Make You Conservative or Liberal, It Makes You Smart — The Free Thought Project – January 8, 2020

Iran

(The Free Thought Project)  Despite the establishment telling Americans otherwise, the United States is marching directly into a major conflict with Iran that could have catastrophic implications. The two-party paradigm’s grip on Trump supporters has them shifting from previously supporting Trump’s anti-intervention stance on which he campaigned, into full on support for a senseless and dangerous war. This is the exact same scenario that unfolded with Obama when he turned the antiwar Left into pro-war interventionists. If you stand against this escalation, according to the establishment, you are anti-America. But in reality, you’re just smart. →
