  1. The grave danger is that the Pentagon aims to achieve a disarming first strike capability. Some say it´s only for blackmail, but anyway it´s crazy, suicidal and extremely dangerous. Trident missile engineer Bob Aldridge -www.plrc.org-resigned for that reason. He wrote First Strike! The Pentagon´s Strategy For Nuclear War and Nuclear Empire (ch. 9 on anti-submarine warfare). Bob Aldridge commented on the missiles to be deployed on ships in the Black Sea in Bulgaria and on land in Romania and Poland by 2015: !Whether they are on ships or land, they are still a necessary component for an unanswerable first strike". The Russians will have no choice but Launch On Warning and it may happen by mistake. Because of the bloody fools in the Pentagon. Resign!- as Bob Aldridge did !

  2. Impossible, Mr. Hamle. Americans are becoming what the hard-core Homo Sovieticus was at one time. They believe they are the best, they are the strongest, they are a gift from God to the World. They believe that they won the WWII and that its only they who "destroyed" the Eastern block. They are convinced they deserve thanks and the rest is ungrateful. They would ignore the worst atrocity of their government as long as it is said to serve their (national) "security".
    They don't want to hear or see anything disturbing that could be a result of any american military "intervention".
    They believe that all the wars are imposed on them and are conducted to advance democracy.
    If you add a strong believe that the evolution is just one of very questionable theories you find a mixture of overwhelmingly effective propaganda, educational ignorance, imperial arrogance with Medieval aftertaste.

  3. I’m sorry but I can’t help but believe that DC protest gatherings do nothing but play into the hands of the scum who have claimed the power to rule us. They and their press will pat you on the head and blabber about how wonderful it is that we are free to express our opinions in the divinely designated Center of All That is Good in the Universe. And the Empire will roll on more righteously than ever.
    My advice is to stay as far away from that hell hole as you can, and instead put your effort into educating your family, friends and neighbors about what an evil entity the American state is.
    The most important question is the one posed by Murray Rothbard in an article reprinted on lewrockwell.com last week: Do you hate the state? Those of us who do should refuse to play its game.
