America has done and is doing things that risk a major war.
Here are the sponsors and their agents.
Here are present and future consequences of our aggressive behavior in the world.
My Comment on David Stockman's piece below:
I believe Russia is the most important nation in the world to the US. Throughout most of history, Russia has been our ally. We have made a huge mistake to treat Russia like an enemy in recent years, and we have driven Russia into combination with other nations against us.
"NATO has been an obsolete waste for 25 years [because] Russia is an economic and military weakling and is not the slightest threat to the security of the United States. [My comment: Russia may not be able to sustain a large army in the field for a long war, but, Russia still has the capability to incinerate the United States.]
"The end of the cold war meant world peace was finally at hand, yet 25 years later there is still no peace because Imperial Washington confounds it. In fact, the War Party entrenched in the nation’s capital is dedicated to economic interests and ideological perversions that guarantee perpetual war; they ensure endless waste on armaments and the inestimable death and human suffering that stems from 21st century high tech warfare and the terrorist blowback it inherently generates among those upon which the War Party inflicts its violent hegemony.
"So there was a virulent threat to peace still lurking on the Potomac after the 77-year war ended. The great general and president, Dwight Eisenhower, had called it the “military-industrial complex” in his farewell address, but that memorable phrase had been abbreviated by his speechwriters, who deleted the word “congressional” in a gesture of comity to the legislative branch.
"So restore Ike’s deleted reference to the pork barrels and Sunday afternoon warriors of Capitol Hill and toss in the legions of beltway busybodies that constituted the civilian branches of the cold war armada (CIA, State, AID etc.) and the circle would have been complete.
"It constituted the most awesome machine of warfare and imperial hegemony since the Roman legions bestrode most of the civilized world. In a word, the real threat to peace circa 1990 was that Pax Americana would not go away quietly in the night."
