Ukraine: While U.S. politicians, media and NATO push for war, people need to understand this context

April 22, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Regarding the current Ukraine crisis, nearly all U.S. politicians and news media are aggressively promoting the narrowly nationalistic U.S.-centric foreign policy grounded in arrogance and hubris that refuses to understand other nations’ needs and concerns and refuses to understand the context in which the crisis emerged. The U.S. has done this over and over again in recent decades.  This led to disastrous wars in Vietnam, Central America, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and other countries.  Now our politicians and mainstream media are pushing the U.S. into war with Russia.  This could end in a nuclear war that kills billions of people and […]

Nonviolent National Defense — A Practical Way to Be More Secure

April 16, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

The May 2022 episode of “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series provides powerful information and inspiration to significantly improve the U.S.’s “national security” by – ironically — de-militarizing our “national defense.”  Instead of military violence, we could defend our nation better through carefully planned strategies of nonviolent resistance. Besides eliminating the danger of nuclear war, a nonviolent national defense would also provide better security without all of the downsides that violent militarism causes. During this hour Glen Anderson: Encourages us to think open-mindedly, boldly and creatively Explains how nonviolent national defense could actually work effectively Shares examples of nonviolent resistance used […]

Are you alarmed at Putin’s threat to use nuclear weapons? The U.S. has been threatening exactly that for decades!

March 31, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

American politicians, mainstream media, and most Americans are alarmed that Putin — during his illegal war in Ukraine — has said he might launch nuclear weapons. The world should be EQUALLY ALARMED that the U.S. has been threatening to launch nuclear weapons since the 1940s (and we actually did drop atomic bombs on two civilian cities in Japan in August 1945.  For decades the U.S. has maintained a “first-strike” policy – the willingness and intention to start a nuclear war. Since the late 1960s the U.S. has been designing and building nuclear weapons NOT to retaliate against an attack, but […]

Stop hypocrisy! Condemn Russia’s war and ALSO the U.S.’s MANY wars that are even worse!

March 28, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Certainly the civilized world is right in condemning Russia’s war against Ukraine.  It is illegal under international law.  It is cruel, murderous, destructive and oppressive. So also are the wars the U.S. has conducted in Vietnam, Central America, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and many other nations. The U.S. wars are even worse because we actually did invade massively, conduct massive bombings, overthrow governments, install puppet governments, and oppress the populations in many ways. Russia’s war on Ukraine is scarcely one month old.  The U.S. started its war in Vietnam in the early 1950s (helping France reclaim its colony after World War […]

URGENT! REJECT the calls for a “no-fly zone”!!! It would lead to NUCLEAR WAR!!!

March 28, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Many politicians and news media people are calling for a “no-fly zone” over Ukraine.  This would obligate the U.S. to shoot down Russian military planes.  This would be AN ACT OF WAR!!! RUSSIA WOULD CERTAINLY RETALIATE! Both nations have thousands of nuclear weapons! This would almost certainly ESCALATE INTO A NUCLEAR WAR that would KILL BILLIONS OF PEOPLE and DESTROY HUMAN CIVILIZATION!!! We must CONVINCE the American people — and the news media — and the politicians to REJECT any thought of a “no-fly zone”!!!   Here are a few articles about this:   Veterans for Peace Warns Biden That […]

The world is pressuring Russia now. Could world pressure on the U.S. 20 years ago have prevented our tragedies in Afghanistan and Iraq?

March 8, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

In February and March 2022 much of the world has united in pressuring Russia to stop its extremely cruel, illegal invasion of Ukraine. What if — 20 years ago — the world had united in pressuring the U.S. to stop its extremely cruel, illegal invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq? MILLIONS OF LIVES would have been saved. TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS would have been saved (and perhaps used for important purposes such as ending poverty, providing health care for all Americans, protecting the environment and climate, and so forth).   After losing the war, the U.S. is still killing people in Afghanistan: […]

Nonviolent resistance is effective in Ukraine and elsewhere

March 6, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Military “solutions” only make problems worse!  We need to think and act outside of the militaristic box. Smart nonviolent actions have been PROVEN effective in resisting invasion and occupation.

The New Nuclear Arms Race Is Happening in Oak Ridge, Tennessee

February 28, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

The March 2022 episode of “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” provides a lot of information about nuclear weapons that hardly any Americans know.  Even people who know a lot about nuclear weapons will learn new information from watching this interview.  We really need to understand this existentially crucial information! Glen interviewed our expert guest, Ralph Hutchison, the Coordinator of the Oak Ridge Environmental Peace Alliance (OREPA, www.orepa.org).  OREPA is a very savvy non-profit organization in Tennessee that is working hard to stop the newly escalating nuclear arms race.  They are located near the site that has produced 100% of the highly enriched […]

The U.S. has REPEATEDLY threatened to attack other nations with our nuclear weapons!

January 25, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Most Americans think the U.S. has used atomic bombs only twice (on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945). Actually, the U.S. has PERSISTENTLY used them as an ongoing threat — and has ACTUALLY SPECIFICALLY THREATENED NUCLEAR ATTACK on 30 occasions from 1946 to 2006.  (I don’t know how many times since then, but we all remember a few of Trump’s explicit threats.) During times of international crisis the President goes on TV and tells the nation and the world that “ALL OPTIONS ARE  ON THE TABLE.”  This is the euphemism for threatening to destroy the other nation that the U.S. president […]

We need PEACE instead of provoking war with Russia.

November 7, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

As soon as the Russian Revolution occurred in 1917, the U.S. treated that nation as an enemy.  Although the Soviet Union was an ally with the U.S. in opposing Nazi Germany, when Japan was ready to surrender in 1945, the U.S. unnecessarily dropped two atomic bombs on Japan — partly in order to intimidate the Soviet Union.  For many decades from 1945 until the USSR collapsed in 1991, the U.S. kept treating that nation as an enemy with whom we were locked in a Cold War that was ready at any moment to destroy the entire world with nuclear weapons.  […]

Weaponizing space is VERY DANGEROUS!

August 29, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The “national security” baloney that has caused many stupid, endless wars — and the extremely dangerous nuclear weapons arms race since the 1940s — is escalating into space, regardless of the 1967 treaty that prohibits militarizing space. Trump — and now Biden — have been making Planet Earth more dangerous.   Karl Grossman, one of the world’s top experts on space weapons, wrote this powerful June 16, 2021, article on escalating U.S. warfare in space”  “New Space Force laboratory opens: A breakdown on space warfare ‘autonomy.’”  It includes this quotation:  “The U.S. imperial war project, now marching headlong into the […]
