#USA There Is No Future in War: Youth Rise Up, a Manifesto

Once again, US politicians and pundits are beating the drums of war, trying to get our nation involved in yet another conflict. A few years ago it was Iran, with “all options on the table.” Last year it was a red line that threatened to drag us into the conflict in Syria. This time it’s Iraq. We, the youth of America, have grown up in war, war war. War has become the new norm for our generation. But these conflicts—declared by older people but fought and paid for by young people—are robbing us of our future and we’re tired of it. There is no future in war.

Kissinger on #Iran: Belts, Empires, and Getting it Wrong

Kissinger on #Iran: Belts, Empires, and Getting it Wrong | News in english | Scoop.it

Bam! The US Naval Academy's John Limbert gives Henry Kissinger a geography lesson: "...Now Kissinger is talking not only of belts, but also of Persian empires. He told NPR that Iran is a 'bigger problem' for the US than the vicious Islamic State, which is commonly referred to as ISIS. 'There has come into being a kind of a Shia-belt from Tehran through Baghdad to Beirut,' said Kissinger. 'And this gives Iran the opportunity to reconstruct the ancient Persian Empire, this time under a Shia label.'


"Nonsense. As a scholar of history and a Harvard PhD, Kissinger should know better. He once said that the United States had more common interests with the Islamic Republic than with many of its friends. That view is much more sensible than beating drums about some imaginary threat of a new Persian empire and a Shia belt.


"No one has been so misinformed about Iran since Mitt Romney, during his 2012 presidential campaign, told us that 'Iran needs its alliance with Syria to secure access to the sea.' Perhaps Harvard, where both these men studied, has some basic problem teaching Iran's history and geography. It appears that Romney never realized Iran already has over 1,000 miles of coastline on the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman. As for Kissinger, he apparently never learned that there has been no 'Persian Empire' ruling beyond the Iranian plateau for over thirteen centuries."

Shifting Priorities: Pentagon Wants to Move Money for Ebola, Ukraine, and Iraq

Shifting Priorities: Pentagon Wants to Move Money for Ebola, Ukraine, and Iraq | News in english | Scoop.it

Meantime, the Pentagon is reprogramming money to help pay for Ukraine, Iraq and countering Ebola. FP's Kate Brannen lays it out: "...All in all, the Defense Department wants to shift $2.6 billion among its accounts to respond to new national security priorities. But world events are not the only driving force behind the request. The Pentagon intends to move $1.5 billion so it can buy fifth-generation fighter aircraft that won't be available in time to respond to what's going on in Africa or the Middle East. Still, the reprogramming request, which comes just ahead of this fiscal year's end, provides plenty of insight into Pentagon planners' thought process."

Since 9-11 America's Insane Foreign Policy -- Continued Under Obama -- Has Killed a Million and Created ISIS

Why American policy abroad will strengthen groups like ISIS.

September 10, 2014  |
 Editor's note: On Wednesday night President Barack Obama gave a nationally televised address in which he vowed that the United States would "degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group known as ISIL."

Thirteen years ago, a draft dodger from Texas stood on a pile of rubble in New York City and promised, "The people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon." Of course, the people who flew the planes into the World Trade Center could not hear anybody, as their remains were buried in the rubble beneath Bush's feet. And our government's extraordinary relationship with one of the world's last and most brutal absolute monarchies ensured that any accomplices still in the U.S. were quickly flown home to Saudi Arabia before the crime could be investigated. In 2003, Bush meekly complied with Al-Qaeda's most concrete demand, that he withdra...
