Neocon (and Clinton?) Dreams Of World War III Closer By The Day

With, that is, today's news that the US is suspending bilateral efforts with Russia to achieve peace in Syria and Russia's announcement it will suspend an agreement with the US to round up nuclear materials spread around the former Soviet republics, and with new major advances in Afghanistan by the Taliban which we went to war to force from power more than a decade ago, remember, and in Iraq a major offensive against the ISIS stronghold of Mosul by the US and its proxies about to begin. Not to mention the ongoing US wars in Libya, Yemen and Somalia among others.

None of which would be happening but for the imperialist ambitions of the United States which instead of simply defending its borders has more than 1,000 military instillations around the world and spends more of our taxes on its military than the next seven countries, China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, France, the UK, India and Germany, combined.

And all of which is the doing of the Neocon foreign policy establishment and military-industrial complex Hillary Clinton is now the standard bearer of, the prominent leaders of which have already endorsed her, and much of which is the direct result of her actions while she was secretary of state.

If you haven't been following this, don't start now. Just vote for Clinton and enjoy these last days of what will probably someday be considered to have been relative normalcy.

You might want to get yourself a geiger counter before there's a run on them.

  1. Will The Millennials bounce back from this defeat (and the mess they're inheriting from us Boomers)? Or will they sink back into their sofas, binge-watch Netflix series, and strive to improve their Minecraft skills? Human nature being what it has been, the outlook seems gloomy to me right now. Maybe growing-up in the age of cyber-connectedness has altered human nature in the younger generations, but I'm doubtful. I think we're still pretty much the same Cro-Magnon idiots who killed-off all of the Wooly Mammoths.
