Hell is this Thing Called War

To be in war is to be in hell on Earth, captured by lunacy and bewilderment, panic, fear and unmatched levels of stress invading your body. Bullets whizzing by, helicopters flying low, machine gunning anything that moves, fighter jets roaring overhead, explosions everywhere, 500 pound bombs flattening entire city blocks, cluster bombs maiming and killing, the tremors of the ground rattling your conscious, concrete flying everywhere, screams of pain and agony surrounding you, hidden snipers killing indiscriminately, platoons of men caught in hours-long fire-fights, bullets, artillery and rockets flying everywhere, the smell of blood in the air, the odor of sweat and urine festering about, your heart palpitating thunderously, body parts strewn everywhere, pools of fly-infested blood lining the streets, the nauseatingly putrid stench of rotting death omnipresent, hundreds of mutilated bodies thrown about, the ravaged remains of a once vibrant city laying at your feet, your house destroyed, your family huddled in the corner of your most secure room, your children shaking, lying in a fetal position, hunger overcoming you, your belly hurting for food, your tongue and mouth desperate for water, your spirit eager for escape, your instincts telling you to survive, to hug your children and never let go.

Welcome to Hell on Earth, where the devil’s excrement bleeds black and the neocon delusion dwindles into twilight. Welcome to state-sponsored terrorism breeding unending crimes against humanity, where torture has replaced torture, where human evil has replaced human evil and where tyranny has replaced tyranny. Welcome to the American Crusade and Iraq Invasion, where 100,000 innocent civilians have died, in a year and a half, at the hands of the military-industrial-complex and the killing machines it trains to push, aim, fire, direct, guide and launch its weapons of death, carnage, destruction and human misery. Welcome to Fallujah, where bombs and missiles rain down from the heavens above and cold-blooded monsters on a wanton murdering spree roam hellish streets below.

Iraq is where up to 2,500 to 3,000 American soldiers have been killed, their deaths made hidden, pro-rated daily Enron-style in order to limit the psychological effect of mass casualties on the American people (you don’t really believe Rumsfeld’s Pentagon or Bush’s White House or the Corporate media, do you? Remember, they lie about everything, and the deaths and statistics of American soldiers is no exception. They have learned the lessons of Vietnam). Iraq is where 15,000 American soldiers have been maimed, burned, shredded, disfigured, physically scarred and mentally devastated, never to find normalcy again and never again to know inner peace, becoming an army of psychologically mutilated energies, joining their physically healthy comrades in arms in a future battle against inner demons never to be fully exorcised from within.

To be in Iraq is to be witness to a Pandora’s Box opened by Bush and the neocons where the destruction of Fallujah and other cities is seen as liberation, where the introduction of martial law is seen as democracy and where the importation of chaos, mass killing, utter destruction, terror and guerilla war is seen as a human rights campaign to free the Iraqi people of tyranny. To be in Iraq is to see firsthand how an army lays waste to a large city in a grisly act of collective punishment, how citizen soldiers turn into savage barbarians, torturing and dehumanizing innocents, murdering wounded Iraqis, bombing civilian homes, targeting innocent hospitals and assassinating dozens of medical personnel.

It is to see trigger-happy, zit-faced, video-game conditioned, television desensitized, military-brainwashed twenty year olds indiscriminately shooting innocent civilians, women and children all, trying to escape a city of death. It is to see an army, priding itself on virtue and morality, purposefully making targets of all living humans in a city of 300,000, granting the green light for their foot soldiers to kill anyone, prosecuting the guilty only when caught red handed, to salvage public relations or to play the game of politics. It is only when the criminal policies of those at the top are somehow forever recorded on tape by the actions of soldiers that scapegoating of grunts in order to save the hides of the brass is allowed. In the military, it is not a crime if nobody sees it.

To see the carnage taking place or imagining the terror now enveloping Iraq is to be inside a horrific nightmare that refuses to liberate us from its vice-like grip. To be in Iraq is to be inside Human Hell, as monstrous as one can imagine a place of such evil to be. It is to see Human Evil grow stronger every day, seeing the Cradle of Civilization become a smoldering cauldron of exponentially-growing guerilla war. The violence only escalates, the death figures only increase and an entire country of 25 million people is slowly but surely descending into the depths of despair and the apex of unmitigated hatred and vengeance.

Hell is this thing called war, procreator of human evil and ambassador to sheer death and suffering. America has exported war where none existed, chaos where order once stood and its legions of military-industrial complex mercenaries birthing terror and pillaging resources. It has created a vast factory of resistance fighters whose assembly lines continue to produce mujahideen with every bomb dropped or bullet fired, making Iraq a hornet’s nest of freedom fighters intent on evicting American invaders and occupiers from their lands.

Their numbers grow, their cause gains worldwide support, the moral high ground is indisputably theirs and it is they fighting for freedom and liberty, not for corporate profit and oil and to hide the ineptitude of the Bush administration. The illegality of the Iraq invasion and subsequent occupation cannot be denied; it was orchestrated based on lies and deceits, for no reason other than for corporate profit. A sovereign nation, a threat to no other, crippled by a decade of sanctions and US imposed economic genocide, was invaded by the forces of greed and the Almighty Dollar. This illegal war, against all principles of universal precepts of human interaction, mandated by warmongers, greed-mongers, profiteers and exploiters of human misery, is akin to Hitler’s invasion of Poland, while the entire world watched aimlessly and indifferent before he invaded again and again and again. With Iran clearly next in the scope for Bush, Israel and the lunatic neocons, humanity is one step closer to repeating the mistakes of the past, this time with most ominous consequences.

The Iraq resistance, however, is already victorious, and once the United States escapes its bubble of infallibility and enters the realm of reality, it will see this, wishing it had never entered the quagmire and debacle known as Iraq, where the world’s only superpower was brought to its knees by yet another “barbarian-filled, savage-infested, primitive-living, third-world of a country.” It seems that along with the ghosts of Vietnam can be added those of Iraq, forever to haunt America for its continued ignorance of history, culture, civilization and the awesome will of the human spirit to live free.

Yet in the Iraq resistance does the world now depend, for its freedom fighters have caused unexpected delays and returns for the zealots in office. In them does humanity seek salvation from a warmongering dictator and a small cabal of deluded Machiavellis whose ideology and insanity threaten the entire security of the globe. For it is their tenacity and unrelenting guerilla campaign of aggression that has prevented further war, destabilization and catastrophe.

It is also in the American public that the people of the planet need for survival. It is this population that must wake up and commence the greatest peace movement to ever exist, demanding that its loved ones return home from a war without purpose and a cause without hope. We must bring the troops home, for they and the resistance are one and the same, bred from the same lower castes, denied opportunity by the same state and system that purposefully oppresses them, now demanding allegiance in death and sacrifice both in mind and body. For the Establishment needs the lower castes to do its dirty work, dying and suffering for the profit, power and control of the elite, becoming its army of death and conquest.

Thus Americans must rise like the people of Iraq, marching in the millions, together and strong, peacefully and non-violently bringing down the system, fighting tyranny and despotism, demanding an end to this most heinous of fights that serves no purpose other than to bring humanity even closer to self-destruction. The American people and the resistance in Iraq are one, fighting the same enemy, seeking the same cause, struggling to free humanity from the grip of everlasting conflict.

The Animal Uncaged

Beyond the special effects, blazing pyrotechnics, elaborate sets of carnage, unremitting weapons imagery, fake blood, dramatized death and other Hollywood accessories used to condition and desensitize us to violence and warfare, only a very small fraction of Americans have ever experienced real war and the devastation and suffering that always, without question, seems to follows.

Few of us ever come face to face with a most malevolent demon, that entity resurrected by man over and over again, that for as long as humans have walked the lands of Earth has, like an intrusive virus, penetrated our cellular structure, attaching itself inside us and prospering with each new act of man’s wretchedness upon itself. Since the beginning it has remained within us, gripping our nature with its raptor-like claws, waiting patiently for weakness to once more consume our thoughts and passions, giving light to darkness and life to death. We are predictable creatures, after all, for killing, raping, destroying, cleansing, starving, torturing and fighting ourselves is as widespread in our history as a common cold is in winter.

It is warfare, that scourge of humanity, whose seeds of lunacy, rage, violence and hatred unearth among men the worst evils of the human condition, turning us into crazed beasts made immune to the senses of human morality and the constructs of universal law created by the wise, righteous, virtuous and principled among us over the course of untold generations and throughout all corners of the globe. In battle, where man fights man in struggle for survival, all rational assembly of goodness bred through social evolution is replaced by an innermost primitiveness of primeval ooze long ago mutated.

The animal inside is thus uncaged, released out of its human cocoon, transformed into an unthinking predator devoid of human virtue whose respect for life and learned morality cease to exist. Tamed humans become wild primates, captured by the behaviors of all creatures we once were on our long road to what we presently are, falling down the hole of evolution, regressing backwards to the law of the jungle and the survival of the fittest.

Through the yells and grunts of men in battle can the reality of primitiveness past be heard and felt. Hearing the wails of the injured, the cries of the dying and the groans of enemies fighting in hand to hand combat, with only the winner continuing life, must be an unwelcome voyage back to days long gone but bountiful throughout time, reminding its observers of the long and violent human past that never goes silent. In war’s malevolent sounds can the demon of humanity clearly be experienced, shrieks and screams unwelcome to the human ear, sending shivers of dread down our spines.

It is in war that the true nature of what we are is released, visible for all those willing to see.

Madness Released, Wickedness Allowed

For war - that human weakness created by warmongering leaders that send to battle the mostly young, ignorant, easily manipulated, testosterone-filled members of the lower castes of any one tribe - unleashes in human beings a most vicious animal from the deepest reaches of our psyches. The primordial necessity to kill, the hunger to maim and rape, the desire to inflict pain and suffering is therefore reborn, free to act indiscriminately, away from the menacing glow of the rule of law and the watchful eye of humanity.

In war, in its battles and fights, killing becomes legal and permitted, a duty onto every soldier, a policy espoused by the highest leaders of every side. Horrific crimes such as rape and murder of innocents, normally punished severely in society, become a weapon of fear and terror, overlooked and forgotten, designed to weaken the enemy and its supporters, seen as an unpunished necessity for the psychologically traumatized soldier seeking to exorcise demons and release stresses tearing him apart. Throughout history, in all regions of Earth, untold millions of women have been sexually victimized by individual soldiers turned animals or by gangs of warriors turned pack of wolves. It is part of the disease, a symptom of the demon released.

It is because of war that laws and morality disappear, making crimes the normalcy of every day life and the morals of ordinary men the vanished remains of humanity. In war, being wrong is considered right, evil is seen as good, and the daily introspections of soldiers questioning war’s purpose is admonished, judged as a sign of weakness, heresy and free-thought. In truth, morals are an enemy of warmongers, this is why free-thinking minds are eliminated during military training, when god-fearing Christian boys and girls are transformed into cold-blooded automaton-like killing machines, conditioned to kill without hesitation or mercy, brainwashed to obey and follow, never to think beyond what they are trained or told to do.

In war the killing of innocents becomes a means by which to traumatize, terrorize and instill fear into the enemy and its helpers, made legal by those in power, glossed over and made to disappear. In modern times, this practice is called collateral damage by American Nazis in office, as if beating hearts, terrified minds and baby eyes were inanimate concrete buildings and inconsequential infrastructure, nothing but rocks, concrete and rubble to be bombed and demolished. This is nothing more than collective punishment of an entire population, perfected by the Israelis and taught to the Americans, which seeks to destroy the collective will of the people and the resistance. It is purposeful, it is strategy, it is policy and it is malevolent, a war crime and a crime against humanity.

In war the enemy and its supporters must be made to seem inferior, taking on the appearance of sub-humans or even animals. This legitimizes their killing and the deaths of their loved ones, who, in the eyes of American GI’s, are seen as a savage sub-species. Thus the learned constructs of morality and the traumatic questioning of murder by the human mind are washed away, and the respect once afforded human life becomes nonexistent.

The German Nazis, similarly, called their enemies “untermensch,” or sub-human, easily killed, raped, tortured and exterminated. Once people are no longer considered humans, it seems, their murder is easier to swallow, and thus the killer’s mind can continue fighting, and killing. The Americans are today repeating many of the same atrocities as their Nazi counterparts, becoming the same monster, using the same beliefs, mutating into an abyss of human wickedness from where few minds ever return.

Down the Same Road We Follow

In the battlefields where today’s armies fight, the ghosts of history are once more made to appear, pitching battles of old with claws and teeth, our ape-like ancestors fighting tree to tree and branch to branch for resources and territory, power and sexual conquest. Later after our mighty Diaspora out of East Africa to all reaches of the planet our methods of warfare evolved, stones and spears appeared, in confrontations over competition did clan versus clan and tribe versus tribe find themselves, leaving destruction, extinction and ruin in their wake.

In these modern fighting zones of today can we see the armies of ancient city-states doing battle with rivals through iron and armor, fighting each other for group loyalty, power, resources, belief and land, shielded by advancing technologies, maimed by evolved weaponry, seeking higher ground for their cities, surrounding and protecting their cities with defensive walls. Soon empires rise and barbarians fall, greater economies, populations and wealth always prevail, the Caesars’ addiction for expansion of land and conquest of man grew, their ego and legacy was thus assured; the Popes’ subjugation of heathens and pagans spread with the hypnotizing opiate of their theology and the devastating violence of their cross capturing the minds and bodies of millions, their cultures erased, their ways of life altered forever.

In the lands of Iraq do the winds of kingdoms and monarchies rise, entire legions of armies clashing in savage war, thousands of feudal peasants fighting for nobles’ lands and kings’ thrones, new sophisticated weapons of devastation and fiery hell are born, injury and death in greater numbers are thus assured. Visible ghosts and unseen winds give rise to the nation-state, pitting country against country, manipulated patriotism versus brainwashed nationalism. Entire cities are condemned to rubble, now millions of innocents and millions of combatants die, firestorms and bombs dropped from the sky, bullets and ordinance kill from below. In the fields of death only blood blossoms, its crimson red color alive as roses as the devastation of modern warfare makes dead men walking of those standing ready to fight and those hiding in fear.

Two World Wars have enveloped the globe, following man everywhere he goes. Human violence and wickedness have simply evolved, from our start in the tree to the land of the free. Genocide, ethnic cleansing, mass murder and extermination continue to reign, we never learn, again and again. Today in the 21st century do we live, in a guilded age of smart bombs and missiles that completely miss their targets, instead killing thousands of innocent men, women and children. In times of depleted uranium munitions and bombs do we stand proud to thrive in, filling the bodies of both friend and foe with the slow-killing disease called radiation. Thousands of nuclear bombs are ready to evaporate our planet; millions of tons of chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction have been produced, ready to poison and plague us; the assembly lines of instruments of death, violence and destruction continue to run, their conveyor belts refusing to stop the proliferation of weapons designed to kill and maim; space, the next frontier of war, is set to be weaponized and militarized.

From the first stone and wooden weapons used by man to the latest gadgets invented by the military-industrial complex, human war simply evolves in time and space, our weaponry growing more sophisticated and deadly with each new year, their capacity to kill more people growing exponentially. The resources invested in the manufacturing of weapons only grows more each year, now reaching $450 billion a year in the US alone.

Knowing humanity, our addiction for violence and penchant for war, it is not hard to fathom the next great war being our last, as nation-states begin to compete for the last vestiges of Earth’s natural resources, which continue to dwindle more each passing year. The need for oil, water, arable land and food, our pursuit of competition and elimination of rivals, our failures to understand our condition or learn from our mistakes and the continued lingering of the virus called violence embedded in a species six billion strong virtually assures that we will continue as we have always been, the next time incinerating ourselves, becoming ash and dust, finally making extinct millennia of perpetual war and suffering. The road of history does not lie, its sides filled with untold destruction and human death. If we continue ahead as we always have, we will be lucky to survive fifty more years. Under Bush, it will be a miracle if we survive four more.

With humanity, it seems, only where our hands cannot reach does peace exist. Only where we fail to conquer does war not thrive. In lands free of human minds and bodies balance remains and nature flourishes, emancipated from the destruction that follows man everywhere he goes like a trail of footprints through muddy paths. Everywhere we roam extinction begins, so it is only logical that with us it should end.

For only the dead have seen the end of war, finally liberated from the virus, the plague and the demon that infects us to our core. Only the dead have seen the end of war, so rejoice and relax, for if we fail to act, we will all be there in four years more.

I’m not sure why the writer of the article is so long winded. Nobody wants war. Everyone would prefer to have peace. But sometimes the situation calls for war as the viable solution and he really doesn’t recognize that.

The premise of the above two posts is that we are in Iraq to keep America free.
In other words, they entirely "bought" the implied connection of 9/11 and
Saddam. Unfortunately, the administration of George Bush has deliberately
connected those two events (and anthrax from a US Army lab helped).
To attack Iraq in order to free it from a non-menace to our freedom, Mr.
Saddam Hussein, has now embroiled us in future conflict in the region.

It would have been better to remain at peace with the Middle East,
and to solve the 9/11 conundrum better than concluding its perpetrators
on the same day it happened. There are technical impossibilities here
for it to have been bin Laden anyway, and it certainly wasn’t Saddam either.
Perhaps some rogue element of the war for oil party?

Nevertheless our troops are in harm’s way and I support caring for them
and their families as best we can. Many of them enlisted out of sheer
patriotism, wanted to support our nation when it was attacked. They
are very much in need of good leaders, which they do not have at present.
Cry the beloved country.

Your conclusion is wrong. I think most Americans see the attack on saddam as part of a larger attack on terrorism. 9/11 was the inescapable straw that broke the camel’s back.

I think this response clearly illustrates the problem. Saddam had nothing to do with september 11. The fact that so many americans believes he did, doesn’t make it true.

Your war on terrorism has made the world more susceptible to terrorism, we live in a far more dangerous world today than we did the week after 9/11.

The ultimate collapse of your economy which is just beginning now as the US dollar is in freefall, will displace millions in your country before the end of the decade. As this occurs the neocons will look for more demons - ultimately further resource wars will follow.

America is going down and it unfortunately is quite clear that it intends taking the rest of us with it. Perhaps on humanities tombstone will be printed, "If I can’t have it, nor can you."

Did the Germans bomb Pearl Harbor? Sometimes your own security is dependant upon the security of others. The American military secured England, and together the US and Brits liberated the rest of Western Europe. The U.S. did this before focusing on the nation who actually attacked American soil. The stability of Europe was seen as a higher priority to American security even though Japan caused the most direct damage.

"There were thousands upon thousands of instances of election fraud committed by Republican operatives and the electronic vote was manipulated to favor Republicans. There is an ocean of evidence to show it."

Is the President of the US is making the American look bad?If the US government is doing something evil in Iraq,the American military is bound to lose the trust of Iraqi people.I pray in Jesus name for the Bush to do the right thing.Give the people of Iraq their freedom.Right now I begin to see Iraqi people are fighting in the name of freedom not against terrorism.People are beginning to see that the government create terrorist agenda as a mean to invade Fallujah and other area in Iraq.This terrorist agenda is created in order to take away the freedom of Iraqi people.This terrorist agenda like the Sept. 11 attack in US is also being use to take the freedom of American people.The less freedom we have,the more evil the government.Let us all pray that the evil plan of the government to fail.Let all pray for justice to be serve against those who commit crime in the name of fake terrorist in Jesus name.

So why has your God (or Jesus) not stopped this insane spiral of murder and suffering? They pray harder than you could fathom, they want their mothers back, they want their fathers back, they want their sons back, and they want their daughters back. Why wont this invisible force or this man who was killed and has rotted away answer all the cries and ended all this senseless pain and death? If your answer is that God has a plan for everything and everyone then I don’t want any part of your violent hate filled cult...

(Allah means light and/or love...I would rather worship the love and light in all of us rather than the that bearded man napping in the clouds)

Where did you get information about christianity? Was it from a muslim author? They’re notoriously ignorant, you know. You should question what you read yourself. The information you have is wrong. Jesus’s body didn’t rot away. The clouds are just the clouds. Let me ask you, does Allah really temp men to commit Jihad by promising them 72 virgins? I had no idea Allah was a pimp.

Monday November 22 - 16:56 - Posted by c4b469a6ac4c746c...

READ THE QU’RAN.NO ALLAH DOES NOT OFFER 72 VIRGINS FOR JIHAD IN FACT,JIHAD IS A SPIRITUAL FIGHT AND IS ONLY ALLOWED TO BECOME PHYSICAL IN DEFENCE OF SLAYING INNOCENTS,AND THAT MEANS ANY INNOCENTS,NOT JUST MUSLIMS.HOW DARE YOU SAY MUSLIM AUTHORS ARE NOTORIOUSLY IGNORANT.PEOPLE WHO DONT READ ALL THE RELIGIOUS BOOKS AND DECIPHER THE TRUE MEANINGS ARE IGNORANT.AND THE MUSLIMS AND A LOT OF CHRISTIANS AND JEWS IN THE MIDDLE EAST(IE:THE STONES OF CHRIST THAT THEIR MUSLIM BROTHERS BELIEVE ARE THE DIRECT DESCENDENTS OF JESUS) ARE NOT AS SIMPLEMINDED AS CHRISTIANS IN THE WEST.THE BELIEVE JESUS WAS A PROPHET AND DIED AND WAS BURIED.THEY EVEN PAY HOMAGE AT HIS GRAVE.INTERESTING THAT NO CHRISTIAN IN THE WEST WOULD EVER PAY HOMAGE TO MOHAMMED IN THE SAME WAY.THE QUARAN ITSELF HAS A LOT OF PARALELL STORIES WITH THE BIBLE AND TORAH,IN FACT THEY TO CLAIM THERE BEGINNINGS TO ADAM AND EVE,BUT UNLIKE THE ANTI-WOMAN BIBLE,THEY BOTH SINNED EQUALLY AND NO ONE WOMAN WAS BLAMED.WHEN YOU CALL ALLAH A PIMP YOU ARE CALLING THE CHRISTIAN AND JEWISH GOD A PIMP.THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE,IT IS THE SAME ONE.

IN THE WORDS OF THE SUFI DERVISH YUNUS EMRE:

"I TRIED TO MAKE SENSE OF THE FOUR BOOKS(TORAH,PSALMS,GOSPEL,QU’RAN)UNTIL LOVE ARRIVED,AND IT ALL BECAME A SINGLE SYLLABLE."

THIS QUOTE IS TAKEN FROM THE BOOK "THE DROP THAT BECAME THE SEA".IT IS A VERY INSPIRING BOOK TO ANYONE THAT CANT MAKE SENSE OF THE HATE IN THE WORLD AND TO ALL BELIEVERS OF THE ONE TRUE GOD OF THE FAITHS.

THE ONLY THING IT MENTIONS IN THE QU’RAN ABOUT 72 IS THAT GOD WILL DIVIDE THE WORLD INTO 72 TRIBES OR LANGUAGES,BUT ONLY ONE WILL BE TRUE.THAT MEANS,ONLY THE PEOPLE THAT SEE PAST THE BORDERS AND DIVISIONS TO GOD.KIND OF THE SAME AS THE BIBLE,THAT STATES MOST PEOPLE WILL NOT BE AMOUNG THE CHOSEN ON JUDGEMENT DAY.

After reading Bush administration’s deluded beliefs about the Iraqi’s desire for "democracy" and then reading the one-sided ranting lunacy on this site, I have little hope that reasonable people with moderate rational views will prevail.

The truth is that America is well-meaning but misguided. Bush is not evil, he is just wrong.

The Muslim Fundamentalists are insanely intolerant in their philosophy, and if any members of the political left who back them against America were to try to live with them... they wouldn’t be living very long.

THE LAW OF THE JUNGLE

Once upon a time, in the deep jungle, lived a Lion and a Monkey... One day the Monkey, tired of the Lion always taking the LION’S SHARE, and seeing that such injustice represented a danger to all, demanded JUSTICE... The HUNGRY LION, yawning and stretching, said, "You would have to have paws and sharp teeth..." Then the Monkey, who was very clever, devised a plan: He would go to the costume store, and look like a lion...

When the Lion saw him, noticing that the new lion wasn’t a match for him, and fearing COMPETITION, killed him on the spot —before the indifferent look of the little animals of the jungle... And that’s how the Law of the Jungle was re-established one more time...

NOTE: Other monkeys survived him...

I, European citizen, won’t let refugees be rejected in my name

©Olivier Jobard/Myop I, European citizen, won’t let refugees be rejected in my name THE RIGHT TO ASYLUM IS A RIGHT In the phrase « right to asylum », every word matters.

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream
Friday 24 January
2 comments
The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

International initiative to stop the war in Syria Yes to democracy, no to foreign intervention!

Your support here: http://www.peaceinsyria.org/support.php We, the undersigned, who are part of an international civil society increasingly worried about the awful bloodshed of the Syrian people, are supporting a political initiative based on the results of a fact-finding mission which some of our colleagues undertook to Beirut and Damascus in September 2012. This initiative consists in calling for a delegation of highranking personalities and public figures to go to Syria in order to (...)

At first glance, the results of America’s 2012 election appear to be a triumph for social, racial, and economic justice and progress in the United States: California voters passed a proposition requiring the rich to shoulder their fair share of the tax burden; Two states, Colorado and Washington, legalized the recreational use of marijuana, while Massachusetts approved the use of marijuana for medical purposes; Washington and two other states, Maine and Maryland, legalized same-sex (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART III
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART IV Disillusioned with the machinations of so-called “traditional” colleges, I became an adjunct instructor at several “for-profit” colleges. Thanks largely to the power and pervasiveness of the Internet, “for-profit” colleges (hereinafter for-profits) have become a growing phenomenon in America. They have also been the subject of much political debate and the focus of a Frontline special entitled College Inc. Unlike traditional (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART II
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART III PART IV Several years ago, a young lady came into the college where I was teaching to inquire about a full-time instructor’s position in the sociology department. She was advised that only adjunct positions were available. Her response was, “No thanks. Once an adjunct, always an adjunct.” Her words still echo in my mind. Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART I
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART II PART III PART IV When The Bill of Rights was added to the United States Constitution over two hundred years ago, Americans were blessed with many rights considered to be “fundamental.” One conspicuously missing, however, was the right to an education. This was not surprising given the tenor of the times. America was primarily an agrarian culture, and education, especially higher education, was viewed as a privilege reserved for the children of the rich and (...)

ONE SOLITARY LIFE, PART TWO
Monday 30 July
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
3 comments
If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

HOW MUCH CORRUPTION CAN DEMOCRACY ENDURE?
Thursday 28 June
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
6 comments
How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

DEMOCRACY IN THE HANDS OF IDIOTS, PART TWO
Tuesday 12 June

Imagine, if you will, that the United States government passes a law banning advertisers from sponsoring commercials on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show or Rupert Murdoch’s Fox (Faux) “News” Network. On one hand, there would be two decided advantages to this ban: The National IQ would undoubtedly increase several percentage points, and manipulative pseudo-journalists would no longer be able to appeal to the basest instincts in human nature for ratings and profit while (...)

LIVE, from the State that brought you Senator Joseph McCarthy, Wisconsin voters now proudly present, fresh from his recall election victory, Governor Scott Walker! At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor. This, after all, is a man who openly declared he is trying to destroy the rights of workers through a “divide and conquer” strategy; who received 61% of the (...)

PEOPLE WITHOUT SOULS

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
