I asked a retired Iraqi Air Force officer what it felt like to be bombed periodically by the USA in the 1990s. He said When our leadership said something threatening those words itself were taken to be terrorism when US bombs the world does not even blush

Thanks Dandelion this is a great article. In order to gain the traction needed for an effective anti war movement the media needs to be printing these stories and Congress needs to believe them which they don't . We need to find ways to get this information out to all Americans. I keep working on educating some members of Congress when I can.

I'm really afraid that Agent Orange will start something he can't stop.

Shared news article and analysis over social media to raise and spread awareness.

Once triggered, consequences and reactions are almost impossible to stop. . .

In my opinion that Iraki officer was right.

Note the double standard. We (or Israel) bomb civilians, we're fighting terrorism - and those dead kids and puppies are just "collateral damage." Somebody else bombs military targets, it's terrorism.

UNLESS Israel bombs in retaliation, Freya! Then...they're terrorists, too. Palestinians can lob bombs into Israel's areas and that's ''freedom fighting." (Sarcasm alert.)

"parade in Pyongyang (North Korea) to celebrate the birth of Kim Il-sung. .... the vast Kim Il-sung Square packed with soldiers as the massive arsenal of North Korea was paraded past'

Watching this gave me the shivers - but Trump wanted a similar parade at his inauguration! He was turned down.

Julie - good, I'm glad he was. But he needs to play this smarter with North Korea, they eat and drink this ongoing posturing. Terrible time to have two lunatics going at it with each other.

I've often felt that the US is the biggest terrorist group in the world. Of course, not all Americans feel the same way as the government. There is nothing rational about bombing another country just because. I have a feeling that if she had won, Hillary would be bombing Syria and who knows where else.

I am a non-interventionist. There are a lot of us in America and I would imagine, many of them voted for Jill Stein. In 2016, the only way to vote against war was to vote for somebody who did not identify as Republican or Democrat. Take a look at Jimmy Dore's 2 minute video here: If you want, you can skip the meme he shows at the end.
