You Don’t Believe We’re On the Eve of Destruction?

US, Europe, Israel, Saudi Arabia have worked so hard together to bring us to the brink of WWIII.

Ukraine is where the US helped stage a coup that left violent neo-Nazis running a puppet government.

Obama and his administration were FURIOUS over losing their power grab for Black Sea control. They and the Kiev government are willing to have Russian Ukrainians in the east massively slaughtered and to create a humanitarian crisis for the survivors as collective punishment, ethnic cleansing and to provoke a military reaction from Russia.

Collective Punishment & Butchering Babies is Self-Defense?

Israeli “self defense” is NOT what is going on, even though there is relentless 24/7 US mainstream media propaganda to camouflage the ruthless unleashing of the Israeli/US-paid-for mass killing war machine.

In "Eyeless in Gaza" Jonathan Cook calls out Netanyahu’s protests of waging a “necessary” war of self-defense against rockets and tunnels. He writes: Read below the fold...

Exterminating the Legacy of Anne Frank

“In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can’t build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever approaching thunder, which will destroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquility will return again.” ― Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Evil No Longer ‘Lesser’, Even from Ostrich Stance

It’s hard to fight for human and social justice when one recognizes that the communication of horrifying truths has little chance of penetrating -- SERIOUSLY -- the hearts and minds of so many, many of those still dedicated to crony “truthiness” and the status quo -- hearts and minds of so many low-information and dead-conscienced but stubbornly self-labeled “progressives” of America.
