"The World Cannot Afford More Victims of War"

By Global Research, February 15, 2013

"The threat of war worldwide — against Syria, Iran and beyond — has been consuming headlines for months, accompanied by ever more sensationalist lies by the mainstream media. The tensions are high and the outlook is grim.

As Michel Chossudovsky wrote:
“A sophisticated and all encompassing propaganda program supports war in the name of World peace and global security.
The underlying scenario of Worldwide conflict goes far beyond the diabolical design of Orwell’s 1984.

The Ministry of Truth upholds war as a peace-making undertaking by twisting realities upside down.
In turn, the lies and fabrications of the mainstream media are presented with various innuendos in a complex web of deceit.”

The temptation to view this tense political atmosphere as doomed is high. Indeed, today’s modern weapons systems know no bounds in their potential for carnage and destruction, and we have some very dangerous leaders (many of whom have been “democratically” elected) poised at the triggers. They are, after all, the ones who stand to profit from taking us into the next World War.

This is exactly the reason why we must not unplug, tune out or look away. The world cannot afford more victims of war. There ARE steps to take, and they require mass mobilization. As Finian Cunningham wrote:

“War is not inevitable. It is an ineluctable outcome of capitalist power rivalry, which history has shown us time and again. But it is not inevitable. The way to stop another world war is for the mass of people to put an end to the capitalist system. That means bringing governments, banks, industries and militaries under public, democratic control on the basis of internationalist solidarity. We got nothing to lose except our chains.”

'Confessions of an Economic Hitman'

by John Perkins.

First the 'EHM', then the 'jackals'. Finally, if both fail,


Tweeting occasionally as himself @cudnoski on the twitter.

Obviously true

and yet somehow they always seem to get the wars they want eventually. We need a simple, "People Up" plan to lift the people out of hero-worship and debt slavery and restore individual responsibility and rights.
And then we need someone rich and famous to promote it or no one will listen. Irony.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

There is such a thing as common sense,

although we hear it rarely via the media. But Ron Paul talks common sense and so does Dr. Canon and others.

I look at what is happening and wonder how long this situation can stretch before it breaks globally in another version of the French or Russian Revolutions. The elite surely are out of their league in their quest for power and play dangerously with fire.
