  1. Jan 10, 2011 War is a Lie

    .In talks at San Jose Peace & Justice Center and in Santa Cruz, historian David Swanson revealed the truth behind the lies that led to the wars held sacred by many — the American Revolution, the Civil War and World War II.


  2. War is a lie. I wish people like Danny Sjursen and David Swanson were in the MSM and informed people about the truth about war and foreign affairs. There should also be education reforms teaching about the bad things the US has done and is still doing. In history class, we are taught democracies don’t start unprovoked wars and don’t commit war crimes.
    So many people say “Israel is the only democracy in a bad neighborhood”. Israel is a semi-democracy and makes the neighborhood bad. Israel was South Africa’s only Middle Eastern Ally during Apartheid there and helped it build nuclear weapons.
    So many people say Russia rigged the election of 2016 in Trump’s favor. Trump, Obama and many other presidents have staged coups and rigged elections in Developing Nations so they would have leaders suitable to the US even if they are dictatorial and unsuitable to the majority of people in those nations.

      1. Neither Sjursen or Bacevich urge the soldiers performing the killings for the US to stand down and refuse to serve.

    The USS Dwight D. Eisenhower aircraft carrier and its Carrier Strike Group have entered the Mediterranean Sea.


  4. Dulce Et Decorum Est III
    In due homage
    to Horace, Owen & Mikhail
    i humbly nod
    for how sweet & glorious
    it must be to kill or die
    for God & country
    via pompous duty
    in ersatz honor
    and a fool’s pride
    so c’mon kiddies,
    any up for good jingo sport?
    who’s hungry & poor,
    who wants to play
    the hubris ‘anything for profit’ killing game?
    As newspapers, rah rah
    pied piper patriotism
    with journalistic integrity
    star spangled objectivity ha ha!
    as a new battle/fear lies just around the corner
    & armed forces day just weeks away hooray!
    rally loyal citizens
    to whitewash warm innocuous blood
    off disgraced musket & sullied polluted flag
    strike up the marching parade
    manifest destiny down main street usa hurrah!
    Awaken & open thine eyes
    chauvinistic folk
    come & see
    your overseas deeds of nefarious brutality
    You’re liable
    for this appalling
    tax-paid supported violence
    exported to hamlets & villages
    Assaulting families
    who’ve never
    did you any harm
    in lands you’ve never heard of
    nor care less for
    so step on up
    one & all
    Take a trip
    to the overflowing morgues
    filled with small smashed bodies
    once toddlers
    full of laughter & life
    Deeply inhale
    the rancid stench
    of scorched flesh
    crispy burnt
    to a black bubbly mass
    by phosphorus
    Gaze into doll dead eyes
    frozen forever
    by shock & awe
    via your God blessed terror from overhead
    Atop a cold gurney
    a stiff finger of a tiny hand
    amidst a mish-mosh of mangled flesh
    bulls-eyed at you war supporters
    as grief-stricken father’s
    in shattered silence
    sifting through ragged debris
    devastating destruction
    for lost sons
    missing daughters
    ripped wet mangled body parts
    strewn out as pieces of a human jig-saw puzzle
    taking home
    the ear, the hand, the foot
    to be quietly buried
    while 6000 miles away
    heroes giggle and snicker
    calling this crime against humanity
    to the heart-piercing shrieks
    as soul-torn asunder mothers
    wail like howling wild animals
    as they find their loves buried
    broken & bloody
    in the rubble
    of your glorious works
    Then if you can
    please explain
    to the unresponsive moaning
    neonatal orphan
    why your armed forces
    just murdered his parents
    by accident
    then wave a condolence payment
    like juicy enticement in his face
    as your special op-forces
    silently & quickly
    dig out bullets
    from civilian bodies
    to cover their tracks
    from being at the wrong address
    Declare as a national holiday
    murdered women at a bridal shower
    or when
    4 kids are droned to smithereens
    while tending sheep
    in exported evil exploits
    as great american victories
    for which your war crimes always are
    Trust flim-flam,
    the PR propaganda spin
    from subjective mass media
    obey leaders and church bosses
    pay your taxes
    which finances anglo-terrorism
    through illegal & immoral aggressive violence
    Raise your polluted flag
    higher higher ever higher
    to cover the rising pile where the butchered lie
    dear good christian citizens
    no civic rag
    could ever soar over
    the sick slaying of the innocent
    Consider Fallujha
    surrounded & caged
    as the cowering cringing unarmed civilian inhabitants
    are shot, burned & barbequed
    like slaughtered sitting ducks
    in a ‘free-fire zone’ shooting gallery
    upon your sanctimonious attack
    at a school in Bajour
    where 69 children are massacred by joystick
    as you deceive yourself
    into believing
    it did not happen
    washing your hands
    turning as you walk away
    This is Sand Creek
    Wounded Knee
    My Lai
    too many other mass-media
    contorted & distorted great triumphs
    To whit
    no doubt in my mind
    the next war crime called
    a ‘battle’
    or a ‘humanitarian bombing’
    will be patriotically anointed too
    sanctioned of course
    ta ta
