The U.S. is planning for simultaneous wars against Russia and China!!! That’s “a strategic nightmare”!!!

April 5, 2024 GlenAnderson 0

President Biden has — for decades — been an EXTREME WAR HAWK — a fierce COLD WARRIOR.  He is continuing that now that he is President.  He has filled his administration with officials who strongly want wars against both Russia and China. Congress keeps appropriating more and more and more money for the Pentagon — and for provoking and escalating a new nuclear arms race.   This was posted on October 14, 2023.   Biden keeps escalating the crisis:  https://popularresistance.org/a-strategic-nightmare-sneaks-into-washingtons-political-agenda/

U.S. nuclear weapons polices have been RECKLESS, DANGEROUS, CRAZY for decades

April 5, 2024 GlenAnderson 0

This long article has fascinating – and frightening – information. Almost no Americans know how horribly reckless, dangerous, crazy the U.S. policies for nuclear weapons have been for many decades. This article was posted March 27, 2024: America’s Nuclear War Plan in the 1960s Was Utter Madness. It Still Is. We rarely consider the dangers these days, but our existence depends on it. https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2024/03/nuclear-war-scenario-book-siop-weapons-annie-jacobsen/

Military “solutions” do NOT work anywhere — including NOT in Israel-Palestine

April 3, 2024 GlenAnderson 0

Military “solutions” do not work! They only make problems worse. Each side’s violence against the other side provides an excuse for retaliation. We must stop the cycle of violence. We must understand the root causes and use honest diplomacy (not bullying and threats) to solve the underlying problems.   During the Cold War – and again now – each side’s fear of the other has led to an escalation of nuclear weapons that are more technologically sophisticated – and DESIGNED to make it easier to start a nuclear war.  I have written about practical steps toward reversing that.   We […]

King called himself a democratic socialist. He believed that America needed a “radical redistribution of economic and political power.” https://www.commondreams.org/views/2021/12/25/martin-luther-king-was-radical-not-moderate?vgo_ee=k2jIECcPP24SvUHOjogvWM%2Fa8rzVrD8A28fuZdXegaA%3D

U.N. Update on Nuclear Weapons Treaty

December 25, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

The January 2024 TV program in the “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” series provides  the newest update about a powerful, inspiring, exciting worldwide movement to abolish all nuclear weapons. Nine nations in the world have nuclear weapons.  Most of the world’s nations are angry at them for holding the entire world hostage with the threat of destroying the world in nuclear war. In July 2017 the United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly approved the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW).  Now 69 nations have ratified the Treaty and are bringing its strong requirements into their own national laws. Just recently – […]

“No room at the inn” — U.S. policies provoke immigration but refuses to accommodate the victims

December 25, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

The Christmas story highlights a young family — Joseph and Mary who was 9 months pregnant — who were forced by the oppressive undemocratic government that ruled over them to travel to a distant place.  But there was “no room at the inn,” so they had no choice but to stay in a stable, where Mary gave birth to Jesus. This iconic story of gross injustice keeps playing out nowadays with different characters and new ironies. For many decades the U.S. has supported brutal right-wing governments (sometimes overthrowing democracies in order to install those oppressive regimes) in Latin America and […]

Biden nominated an EXTREME OPPONENT of human rights to a powerful position on diplomacy commission

December 4, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

Joe Biden has a long history of VIGOROUS SUPPORT FOR WAR.  He has carried that into his presidential administration.  He has appointed MANY EXTREME WAR-HAWKS to powerful positions in his administration. One of the worst is Elliott Abrams, who has committed HORRIBLE WAR CRIMES for George W. Bush and other administrations.  Elliott Abrams is a NOTORIOUS ENEMY of human rights and democracy in other nations.   SEE THIS:  ‘Totally Indefensible’: Biden Nominates Death Squad Backer Elliott Abrams to Diplomacy Panel.  “Elliott Abrams, enemy of human rights, apologist for mass murder, should have no place within spitting distance of any Democratic […]

December 10 is the annual day to celebrate and work for human rights! Many of the problems in our world — and in our nation — would be solved if people and governments respected human rights. The United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights affirms a bold, powerful agenda for what we need to be working for. Read it here every year on or before December 10 and find ways to organize to actually implement it. https://www.un.org/en/about-us/universal-declaration-of-human-rights
