Steve Horn and Allen Ruff discuss their two-part article at Truth-Out, “How Private Warmongers and the US Military Infiltrated American Universities;” how the allies of empire (from neoconservatives to liberal hawks) united to promote “Grand Strategy Programs” – essentially elaborate fictions used to trick Americans into supporting endless warfare; the group of military officers and academics behind David Petraeus and his PR-focused military doctrine; and how radicals have succeeded in redefining the political center and the acceptable range of foreign policy opinions.

  1. Thanks,
    Now these guys know what they are talking about!
    I hope you can bring them on again and give them the floor and let them take it away!!

  2. How did Obama get into Columbia? Or did he really go there at all?

  3. HARMLESS — GUILTLESS — RIGHTEOUS

    Yes of course, the 51% most educated and wealthy are not the voting majority, and its not their fault that they have been fooled into giving themselves all the wealth. For as anyone into a religion will tell you, ignorance makes a man harmless, guiltless and righteous.

  4. EFFECT — EFFECT — EFFECT — EFFECT — EFFECT — EFFECT — EFFECT

    Not a word about the root cause, not the slightest hint about the solution, but exactly like the thought control fed to us by all of corporate owned mainstream media.

    For the root cause is the illusion that democracy is anything more then a fake morality to smokescreen the reality that it is a dictatorship by the well informed, not the slightest fooled and most greedy 51% voting majority. In short, the 51% most educated and wealthy, those who have given themselves all the wealth and all the power.

    For the solution is Occupy Wall Street.

  5. Ron Paul for President!! The one sane voice in Congress not beholden to the Congressional Military Industrial Complex and the quest for empire.
