This Is Not a Revolution. It’s a Blueprint for Locking Down the Nation

The protesters are playing right into the government’s hands because the powers-that-be want this. They want an excuse to lockdown the nation and throw the switch to all-out martial law. They want a reason to make the police state stronger. #georgefloydprotests

The Real Lesson of Afghanistan Is That Regime Change Does Not Work

Casualties of War: Military Veterans Have Become America’s Walking Wounded

Despite the fact that the U.S. boasts more than 20 million veterans who have served in World War II through the present day, the plight of veterans today has become America’s badge of shame, with large numbers of veterans impoverished, unemployed, traumatized mentally and physically, struggling with depression, suicide, and marital stress, homeless, subjected to sub-par treatment at clinics and hospitals, and left to molder while their paperwork piles up within Veterans Administration offices. #casualitiesofwar

Nation That Says It Can’t Afford Medicare for All Has Spent $5.6 Trillion on War Since 9/11

The Costs of War Project at Brown University’s Watson Center says the $5.6 trillion figure—which covers the conflicts in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, and Pakistan from 2001 through 2018—is the equivalent of more than $23,386 per taxpayer. The “new report,” said Paul Kawika Martin, Peace Action’s senior director for policy and political affairs, “once again shows that the true #costofwar represents a colossal burden to taxpayers on top of the tremendous human loss.” #waronterror
