The US now spends almost 64% of every discretionary tax dollar on the military.  It has about 20 times the number of foreign military bases as all other countries combined.  Both major parties support ever-increasing military spending and war, so it is up to the people to build a strong, independent movement to stop U.S. military aggression around the world.  Join us!

As you know, two oil tankers in the Sea of Oman were disabled by explosions on Thursday, June 13.  The US government announced that it was Iran that did it.  Iran knows that such a move would immediately make them suspect and therefore would not do it.  The US statements have been contradicted by the crew of one of the ships and the ships owner and most countries, even allies of the US, have said there is no proof.  This is very much like the Gulf of Tonkin incident that led the US to war with Vietnam leading to 4,000,000 Vietnamese dead and 60,000 US military dead.  Today we know that the Gulf of Tonkin incident never occurred, we were lied to and millions died because of that lie.  Do not let it happen again.  Read the press statement from Iran on the incident here <http://nepajac.org/Iranpressrelease.htm> and join us on or around the weekend of July 13 & 14.

    Do you happen to have the links to these three anti war groups….? I’d be pleased to get out and demonstrate. I will, of course, do a search and try to find them as well. Thanks. Dr. RTW

    How stupid do these people who hoist their false flags think the world is to think they can do the same time and time again to further their mercantile gain ?
    Do these people have a conscience ?
    In the history of mankind empires have come and gone and been replaced by the same methodology that led to their extinction and history will repeat itself yet again shortly for the same reasoning .

    Five months ago, in response to Maduro’s open letter, I said that the production of YF-VAX, the only permitted yellow fever vaccine in the U.S., appeared to be quiescent. I did not think war could be forthcoming. But very recently I heard that Sanofi-Pasteur is not merely reopening production, but training two shifts of literally as many people as the fire marshal will let in their present production building! BE WARY because this was the biggest hurdle I could foresee to an invasion.

    There can be no advantage whatsoever to an illegal, unjustifiable, unnecessary invasion of a peaceful nation based on a pretext as flimsy as the Soviet Union’s 1989 invasion of Afghanistan. American bluster has driven the Venezuelan government paranoid since 2004, sanctions have impoverished its people, war-mongering has only harmed the chances of peaceful protest and change. And a war itself can only replace a heavy-handed but notionally compassionate government with a mob of mercenaries and drug cartels that will rain terror down on the region as far as Washington D.C., even as the war itself is inevitably reckoned among the numerous failures and mistakes of Republican policy.

    Nonetheless — it seems probable to happen.
