The “War on Terror” has provoked violent extremism in Africa:   https://fpif.org/u-s-counterterrorism-in-africa-has-failed-whats-the-alternative/?emci=74038a8b-dca2-eb11-85aa-0050f237abef&emdi=bb38c43a-8ea3-eb11-85aa-0050f237abef&ceid=3993183     Endless War Is A Feature of Our National Programming: On Pulling the Plug on the War Machine.  William J. Astore posted this on May 10, 2021:  https://www.juancole.com/2021/05/endless-national-programming.html     Biden is training an African military in “counter-insurgency” warfare:  The U.S. military has begun training Mozambican security forces to combat an insurgency in their country. It seems twenty years of failure of the military-first “counterterrorism” strategy won’t stop us from exporting it to others.  SEE THIS:  https://www.africanews.com/2021/03/15/us-forces-to-train-mozambique-s-marines-to-fight-jihadist-insurgency//     The U.S.’s “war on terror” slaughters innocent people.  […]

Peaceful Foreign Policy — A Bold New Agenda

May 26, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The June 2021 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series helps you understand the problems in U.S. foreign policy and some bold ways to solve those problems and support peace and justice worldwide. Two guests explored the problems and solutions: John Feffer is a Project Director working on a variety of foreign policy issues at the Institute for Policy Studies, an exceptionally savvy non-profit organization based in Washington DC. Their website is ips-dc.org.  I enjoyed reading his writings for a long time, even before I recruited him to be a guest for this interview. Metta Spencer is a retired professor […]

Afghanistan: Biden’s troop withdrawal does NOT end the war!

April 18, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

For nearly 20 years the U.S. has waged a horribly expensive (trillions of dollars) and  horribly deadly (many, many, many thousands of deaths) war that accomplished NOTHING. US to Withdraw from Afghanistan after Two Decades of War Leaving Behind Tortured Wasteland Having Accomplished Nothing:  https://www.opednews.com/articles/US-to-Withdraw-from-Afghan-by-Scott-Ritter-911-Truth_Afghanistan-Pullout_Afghanistan-War_Architects-And-Engineers-For-911-Truth-210416-123.html  Now President Biden announced that he will withdraw U.S. troops.  People are happy with that.  But people do NOT know that THE WAR WILL CONTINUE without U.S. troops.  The U.S. continues its reckless, deadly drone war, and also continues to arm factions throughout the region.  The overall U.S. foreign policy in that region (and elsewhere) […]

URGENT (late Feb. 2021) ONLINE ACTIONS for these issues

February 23, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Most of us receive many e-mails urging us to take online actions to tell a governmental or business entity what to do. These are especially urgent now in late February 2021 about several different issues.   Urge Biden to rejoin the Iran nuclear deal: The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA, commonly known as the “Iran nuclear deal:) was working well until Trump pulled the U.S. out of it and escalated his bullying against Iran — including escalating threats of war against Iran.  Instead of getting “leverage” to force Iran to yield to Trump’s demands, Trump’s scheme backfired.  The Iranian […]

URGENT!!! Sign the petition: Remove Trump from office now!!!

January 6, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Trump has been provoking his cult members to VIOLENTLY PREVENT A PEACEFUL TRANSITION to President Biden — and to VIOLENTLY REPLACE THE CONSTITUTION WITH MOB RULE by Trump’s domestic terrorists. A violent mob of Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol this afternoon in a desperate attempt to stop Congress from certifying the results of the 2020 presidential election. Gunshots have been fired, law enforcement have found at least one explosive device and the National Guard is being deployed right now. The situation on the ground is chaotic and deadly serious. This is a predictable consequence of Donald Trump’s ongoing attempt […]

Trump’s hard-core supporters keep denying election results — and threatening & using violence.

December 21, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Weeks after Trump lost, Trump continued to defy reality and claim that he had actually won.  Weeks after the election results only about 10% of Republican House members admitted that Biden had won.  Many of Trump’s hard-care supporters were still believing him.  Some were mobilizing as gangs of armed thugs, threatening domestic terrorism, committing acts of violence, etc.  Trump continued provoking them, and huge right-wing media entities were supporting Trump’s coup against electoral truth and the U.S. Constitution. Decades ago Fox News was created to be the propaganda outlet for the Republican Party, but now even Fox News is not […]

Biden should take these steps for peace.

December 15, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

The U.S.’s foreign policy has been provoking people into becoming terrorists.  We need to push Biden into boldly changing that persistent pattern.  If the Biden administration really wants to stop fueling chaos and terrorism in the world, it must radically transform the CIA.  https://www.nationofchange.org/2020/12/14/will-bidens-america-stop-creating-terrorists/   Sign petition urging Biden to End Trump’s Coercive Measures Against the International Criminal Court: The International Criminal Court has been investigating the actions of all parties to the war in Afghanistan and potentially investigating Israel’s actions in Palestine.  Trump has always refused to be held accountable for his crimes and other mistakes.  This is consistent with the U.S. […]

This clever diagram can help us strategize how to change to a peaceful foreign policy.

November 12, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

For a very long time the U.S. had a “War Department,” but we conducted very few foreign wars. In 1947 Congress changed it to the “Department of Defense,” and we have conducted many, many wars since then, including our 2-decades-long Endless War against “terrorism.” Sensible people want to replace the U.S.’s chronically aggressive and violently militaristic foreign policy. The diagram linked here can help us figure out strategies for doing that.  It is fun to bring a few friends together to work through this exercise together.  Also, it can be useful for you to work with it alone.  Creative insights […]
