The Antiwar/Non-Interventionist Movement: Making Progress!

Popular support for war is astoundingly low. This is a trend that the media is trying to cover up and reverse. At the DNC a large group of people started shouting “NO MORE WAR!” during a warmongering speech by Leon Panetta, resulting in Panetta having to temporarily stop his speech. Here’s the video:

Donald Trump, the most non-interventionist Republican candidate, got the nomination. Gary Johnson, the (mostly) non-interventionist Libertarian candidate, is getting a massive amount of support (the most recent poll I found put him at 13%) for a third-party candidate. Trump has criticized NATO and said that we were lied into the Iraq war. Fifty-two percent of those interviewed in a Pew poll say the United States “should mind its own business internationally and let other countries get along the best they can on their own.” Just 38% disagree with that statement. It’s so encouraging that so many people are waking up to the reality that the USG’s foreign policy is immoral and destructive (both economically and in terms of lives lost). Most people don’t even know that non-intervention is an option, yet they instinctively are drawn to the common sense of the position when asked.

Meanwhile, the war machine keeps on going, with the Washington Establishment doing everything it can to make sure that they don’t get crushed in the rising tide of public outrage against the military-industrial complex ripping them off. There is a complete disconnect between the corporate and political elites and the majority of the public. War propaganda is on the news 24/7 while big-wig congressmen and Pentagon officials are talking about “Russian aggression”, the need to “rebuild” the military, and the “fight for freedom” in the Middle East. Sooner or later, the warmongers will be defeated, either when the government has gone completely bankrupt, and/or when public opinion will be so against war that the Washington Overlords will be so scared of the masses that they will have to end their foreign policy of interventionism. This massive antiwar sentiment that so many people have worked to achieve shows that fighting for liberty can and is making a difference.

The Missing 28 Pages of the 9/11 Report – Revealed

The 28 redacted pages of the 9/11 report have been declassified. They have confirmed the reports of Saudi involvement in the 9/11 attacks. Some, possibly essential, information remains redacted, although most of it has been revealed. Here is what it confirms:

1: The 9/11 hijackers received assistance from Saudi intelligence officers in the form of providing and paying for their housing, co-signing the hijacker’s loans, helped them get driver’s licenses, and most importantly, assisted them in locating flight schools.

2: The US government knew this and did nothing,

and

3: That #2 occurred because Saudi Arabia is an US ally.

This leaves us with an unanswered question: why was Saudi Arabia involved? We can’t be certain, but I believe the reason is that the heightened military presence in the Middle East and escalated conflicts that would result from a terrorist attack that apparently emanates from Iraq/Afghanistan would cause the US government to 1) need the Saudis to provide a location from which to operate, 2) call on the Saudis to assist in the fighting, and 3) most importantly, provide the Saudis with massive amounts of weapons and cash. Why would the US government tolerate this? The reason is obvious: the US military-industrial complex got rich off those wars, so it is only natural that they will attempt to protect those responsible for their prosperity.

Meanwhile, the mainstream media, insofar as it actually mentions the release of the 28 pages, is frantically trying to assure the public that the 28 pages has nothing to reveal. Don’t listen. Refuse to be ripped off by these terrible wars which have nothing to do with defense, that only result in poverty, destruction, and mass murder.
