President Reagan armed and supported Saddam Hussein

December 8, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Just like in Orwell’s novel 1984, the U.S. government and mainstream news media suppress historical facts that would embarrass the government and media. One example is the fact that during some years in the 1980s President Reagan armed and militarily supported Iraq’s Saddam Hussein — especially to help him wage Iraq’s war against Iran (1980-1988).  A million Iranians and somewhere between 250,000 and 500,000 Iraqis died in that war. When George W. Bush and Dick Cheney were issuing propaganda in order to fool the American public, media and politicians into their totally unnecessary and illegal war against Iraq (2003 and […]

The U.S.’s defeat in Afghanistan reveals the ongoing decline of U.S. empire.

September 25, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

For many decades, politicians have been telling the American people that the U.S. is the strongest nation on earth — the mighty protector of peace and democracy and human rights and freedom — and that our military is the strongest and most powerful. But we keep losing wars — including our losses to poor nations such as Vietnam and Afghanistan. The U.S. Empire is a sham — a “Potemkin Village” — but despite its gross ineffectiveness, both political parties vigorously fund more military violence. When the U.S. clearly lost its 20-year war in Afghanistan, several savvy persons wrote articles such […]

Vietnam — What most people don’t know — And similarities to Afghanistan

September 25, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

When the U.S. was in the process of losing its 20-year war in Afghanistan – one of the poorest nations on earth – I kept thinking of similarities with the U.S.’s ongoing cruelty and violence and war crimes in Vietnam from the 1940s to 1975.  (Vietnam also was a very poor nation, but Vietnam’s people defeated the world’s most powerful military decades before Afghanistan did that to the U.S.) Mainstream U.S. news media have a very long record of kowtowing to U.S. foreign policy instead of reporting critical and true information.  Most schools’ history classes run behind schedule in the […]

People wrongly assume nuclear weapons “deter” attacks on us. Let’s help people let go of the “deterrence” assumption.

June 19, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The general public, politicians and mainstream media all WRONGLY ASSUME that nuclear weapons “deter” attacks on the U.S.  This wrong assumption is nearly unanimous.  It is a HUGE BARRIER to moving them to reduce and abolish nuclear weapons.  In order to make progress toward peace, we absolutely must help the public, politicians and media LET GO OF the “deterrence” assumption. The “deterrence” assumption locks people into insisting that we must continue having nuclear weapons.  The “deterrence” assumption PREVENTS THEM FROM HEARING our messages about reducing and abolishing them.   The people who are working to abolish nuclear weapons do recognize […]

The “War on Terror” keeps provoking more violence and terrorism.

June 3, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The “War on Terror” has provoked violent extremism in Africa:     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:     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:     The U.S.’s “war on terror” slaughters innocent people.  […]

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.

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:  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.   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. […]
