Everything must change…
Nina Simone – Everything Must Change
The newest propaganda from the corporate elite is working too well. People who would not accept the illegal Vietnam war are now willing to condone or endorse more than 48 simultaneous, illegal and unprovoked economic and military wars of choice against smaller and less powerful nations who have not attacked America.
What have we become?
Too many of the people who stood up for peace when we were in Vietnam, have now chosen to remain silent. These unprovoked American wars about extraction, exploitation and extortion which expanded under Obama have continued to expand under huckster and con-man D. J. Trump. (The new “Don” of organized crime) And Biden promises nothing will change.
Where have the peacemakers gone?
If there was ever a time to speak up, this is the time. We have become the aggressor in 48 avoidable wars. These unnecessary conflicts cost trillions of dollars and millions of lives. These counterproductive wars of aggression create new enemies while making everyone demonstrably less secure.
We have not, will not and cannot “win” wars against dozens of smaller and less powerful nations who have not attacked us.
Surrender to unnecessary war is a losing proposition.
In most areas of economic policy, most progressives agree more than they disagree. But too many people with good hearts refuse to face facts about the last 12 plus years. This studious ignorance is futile, frustrating and fatal.
We cannot continue fighting 48 simultaneous, unprovoked and unwinnable wars. This insanity continues to bankrupt the nation while crippling Mother Earth.
…We are still fighting avoidable wars including economic and military aggression ranging from sanctions to contractors, mercenaries, troops and bombs in Afghanistan, Algeria, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Central African Republic, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Cuba, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Gaza, Gulf of Guinea, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Liberia, Libya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Palestine, the Philippines, Somalia, South Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, Uganda, Ukraine, Venezuela, the West Bank, and Yemen. These unnecessary wars impact more than 500 indigenous nations across the Americas.
None of these nations attacked the United States.
No sane person can call this surrender to expanding wars “good leadership.”
During his time in office Obama bombed more than TEN sovereign states: Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, the Philippines, Somalia, South Sudan, Syria, Yemen and Kandahar.
None of these nations attacked us.
These attacks on smaller and less powerful nations (mostly people of color) involve more violence than any of Obama’s predecessors since World War II. Most violate International Treaties, U. S. Civil Law, the war powers act and the constitution
Most Americans do not hate the former president, but we despise how congress and Obama spent trillions killing millions for billionaires instead of attending to the peoples’ business.
Barack Obama refused to govern. Instead, he allowed the CIA, the Pentagon, war-hawks, profiteers and 16 more intelligence agencies, services, contractors and mercenaries to bankrupt the nation with endless, expanding and increasing wars of economic, military and corporate aggression.
We have become the primary source of terror, munitions and war on the planet. This matters.
No thinking person can condone what the Obama administration allowed the CIA and Pentagon to do to this nation and the planet.
The U. S. A. has now become Murder, Inc. The new Don of this organized crime syndicate, D.J. Trump, was on board for dozens of expanding wars and bankruptcy. Biden embraces these wars and swears nothing will change.
Publishing facts about the last 12 years can stir people up. We watched dysfunctional leadership bankrupt the nation while avoidable deaths rise at home and abroad.
The Obama administration failed to secure the peace, create jobs at home or deliver universal health care. And then Trump doubled down with avoidable corporate wars.
This is the Obama, Biden, Trump and Pence legacy.
ISIS, BUSH, OBAMA & Better Options…
“It’s frustrating to see politicians ignore the origins of our conflicts abroad and use current foes as excuses for creating new ones,”
Obama’s refusal to govern was dangerous and disappointing. He allowed the CIA and Pentagon to take America from 4 avoidable wars into 31 unnecessary wars. Trump doubled down on 48 expanding wars costing trillions, killing millions and making everyone less secure.
Sigh. Biden promises these wars of aggression continue.
I voted for Obama once, but he stabbed us in the back and expects us to thank him for pulling the knife out halfway. No more “lesser-evil.”
Obama surrendered to the corporate elite. Liberal apologies for Obama’s bloody eight years cannot change facts on the ground. We have created millions of new enemies, incurred trillions in new debt and are demonstrably less secure. This is a big part of how Trump the dim racist chump got elected.
American military misadventures have bankrupted the nation. If these more than two dozen simultaneous and expanding wars continue… we will be in full retreat from more than 800 military bases in 150 nations while dying oceans continue rising to flood all shores.
We need to vote our values instead of our fears in 2020. A Green Party New Deal about Peace, People and Planet is exactly what we need. We can shut down corporate wars and rebuild the nation while we still have time.
We can elect a president with a Green Party New Deal for Peace, People and Planet.
How can we not?
“My Power to the People Plan creates deep system change, moving from the greed and exploitation of corporate capitalism to a human-centered economy that puts people, planet and peace over profit.
It offers direct answers to the economic, social, and ecological crises brought on by both corporate political parties. And it empowers the American people to fix our broken political system and make real the promise of democracy.
This plan will end unemployment and poverty; avert climate catastrophe; build a sustainable, just economy; and recognize the dignity and human rights of everyone in our society and our world. The power to create this new world is not in our hopes, it’s not in our dreams – it’s in our hands.”
