Why Do “Progressives” Like War?

Fleeing to Canada is no longer an option
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Though involvement by Moscow in the Middle East and Eastern Europe is undeniable, calling it a threat against U.S. vital interests is more than a bit of a stretch as Russia’s actual ability to make trouble is limited. It has exactly one overseas military facility, in Syria, while the U.S. has more than 800, and its economy and military budget are tiny compared to that of the United States. In fact, it is Washington that is most guilty of intervening globally and destabilizing entire regions, not Moscow, and when Donald Trump said in an interview that when it came to killing the U.S. was not so innocent it was a gross understatement.

Trump’s Anti-Iran Coalition

Trump’s Anti-Iran Coalition | Global politics | Scoop.it
The US seeks to use the ‘Iranian threat’ to milk the Gulf states’ coffers and get them to normalize with Israel
Enrique Ferro's insight:
The US is using the Iranian bogeyman to extort the Arab states and bog them down in sectarian wars. Sadly, they have been submitting to this extortion and raising white flags of surrender. They refuse to learn from previous experiences which affirm that while Iran is becoming stronger and more influential, they — as ‘moderate’ Arab friends of the US — have become increasingly weak, ineffective and bankrupt in every sense.

Democratic Ex-Dove Proposes War on Iran  :  Information Clearing House - ICH

Enrique Ferro's insight:
Alcee Hastings is better known to the public as a federal judge who was impeached for bribery and for a series of ethical lapses as a Congressman than for his legislative record. The 2012 Family Affairs report by the Committee for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington found that Hastings paid his partner, Patricia Williams, $622,000 to serve as his deputy district director from 2007 to 2010, the largest amount paid to a family member by any Member of Congress in the report.

You think this is some kind of sick joke? You think the NY Daily News is just pulling your leg? Think again: The president of Finland just gave an interview where he stated very clearly that Putin wasn't the greatest threat to European security

2017: The Year American Diplomacy Curled up and Died

2017: The Year American Diplomacy Curled up and Died | Global politics | Scoop.it
We don't blame you specifically, Mr. Lindsey. The untimely death of American diplomacy was like a game of hot potato. Eventually the music stops and some idiot senator is holding the charred remains of a sane foreign policy. It just happened to be Lindsey Graham. But it could have easily been John McCain, or a viral Hillary Clinton tweet. And what difference does it make?
Enrique Ferro's insight:
To be fair, international relations based on mutual respect and goodwill has never really been America's strong suit. (We are very good at dropping Agent Orange on rice farmers and handing out smallpox blankets to friendly natives, though. Also: baseball.) Like the murder investigation of Seth Rich, American diplomacy was always a bit of a joke. If you will allow us to extend our metaphor, Lindsey Graham was just the kindly old Metropolitan Police captain who declared Seth's murder a botched robbery; Lindsey's the only man brave and corrupt enough to make our upside down garbage world official. And thank goodness he did.

Hillary Email Gaps Hide 'Pay For Play,' Benghazi Truth

Scandal: Selective editing of her emails by Hillary Clinton staffers have left "months and months" of gaps of missing emails, including those from her trip to
Enrique Ferro's insight:
It strains credulity to believe that if you're on your way to Libya to discuss Libyan policy that there has not been a single document has been turned over to Congress. There are huge gaps." This, we now know, is because Clinton conducted all her government business on her own email account linked to her very own email server set up in violation of the Federal Records Act the day she was confirmed as secretary of state.

  Oliver Stone Outlines ‘The Death of This Planet And The Extinction Of Us All’ :  Information Clearing House - ICH

Enrique Ferro's insight:
“You don’t have to fit in. It’s fashionable now to take shots at Republicans and Trump and avoid the Obamas and Clintons. But remember this: In the 13 wars we’ve started over the last 30 years and the $14 trillion we’ve spent, and the hundreds of thousands of lives that have perished from this earth, remember that it wasn’t one leader, but a system, both Republican and Democrat. Call it what you will: the military industrial money media security complex. It’s a system that has been perpetuated under the guise that these are just wars justifiable in the name of our flag that flies so proudly.”

Is This Washington’s Last Chance to Finish Its Middle East ‘Hit List’?

Is This Washington’s Last Chance to Finish Its Middle East ‘Hit List’? | Global politics | Scoop.it
These countries are the victims of the terrorists we send them--not their creators. We are.

[Along with our "friends."]

According to the Cato Institute, over a 40 year-period, between 1975 and 2015, these 7 nations did not produce so much as a single terrorism-related death in the US.

By contrast, Saudi Arabian terrorists have caused the deaths of at least 2,369 Americans here on American soil in that same period.

So where did this list originate then?

The terrible truth seems to lie with General Wesley Clark telling Amy Goodman of Democracy Now in 2007 of an ominous memo he was furtively shown a few weeks after 9/11 by a high-ranking friend at the Pentagon
Enrique Ferro's insight:
It was President Barrack Obama who pushed for the passage of the Terrorist Travel Prevention Act and its later amendment. And Obama wasn't morally conflicted whatsoever about using the new powers given him by his Terrorist Travel Prevention Act either. Though the liberal press uttered not a peep of protest, Obama was quick to suspend all immigration from Iraq for 180 days in 2015 (as compared with Trump's mere 90 days)--despite the rampant executions then taking place of Iraqis who had worked for the US during the occupation, along with Assyrian Christians [whose genocide is now almost total]. So did Obama invent this "sources of terrorism" list?
