(Part II concentrates on lies the U.S./NATO/EU tells, in order to rationalize war-making against other peoples than the Russians/Soviets. It ends with the latest status of Russia-Ukraine clash)
What follows are merely sketches of U.S. 200-year old jingoistic and illegal wars, genocide and other crimes against humanity, and planet earth. What for? Conquest for endless wealth, and to dominate the world not just continents as predecessor slaver-colonialist countries achieved.
§American Indian Wars
A 2019 scientific-based report found that from the day Columbus invaded the Americas (first landing in the Dominican Republic) to just 1600, European slaver-colonialists exterminated 90% of Native Americans, that was 56 million human beings. Earth system impacts of the European arrival and Great Dying in the Americas after 1492 – ScienceDirect
“Between the 17th and late 19th centuries, European governments and colonists in North America, and later by the United States and Canadian governments and American and Canadian settlers, waged war against various American Indian and First Nation tribes, primarily to take over the land.” American Indian Wars – Wikipedia
The U.S. government signed 368 treaties between 1778-1871with various indigenous peoples in North America, and broke at least 100, according to various federal court cases. The treaties were based on the fundamental idea that each tribe was an independent nation, with their right to self-determination. How Many American Indian Treaties Were Broken? – HISTORY and List of some broken native American treaty agreements. – Indigenous Peoples Opportunity Network
§Enslavement of Africans
From the Middle Ages onwards white European governments sent soldiers/sailors and settlers to the Americas. Some historians estimate that between six and seven million Africans were transported to the “New World just in the 18th century”. U.S. Slavery: Timeline, Figures & Abolition – HISTORY
As many died from capture and ship transport. DEATH TOLL FROM THE SLAVE TRADE (worldfuturefund.org)
Racism in the United States of America Racist Military Empire (U.S.-ARME) is still strong enough that police, FBI, and many white civilians get away with murdering African-Americans simply because of their skin.
§American Exceptionalism/Manifest Destiny/Monroe Doctrine
That is the true religion of superiority admired and practiced by every U.S. government and much of the white population. Carrying the American Flag and the cross of Jesus Christ, the U.S. stole half of Mexico (1846-8)—now states: California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and parts of Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, and Oklahoma.
§Spanish-American War Lie
Cuba’s third Independence War began February 24, 1895, led by poet-intellectual José Martí, the “Father of the Homeland.” cuba history .org – Independence War (1895-1898).
The Cuban people were winning their liberation war against Spain, so the U.S. had to find a lie to intervene, in order to prevent Cuban sovereignty. Politicians, such as Theodore Roosevelt, and the MSM then led by Hearst, fabricated the lie that Spain had exploded a U.S. ship in Havana harbor, February 15, 1898 killing 241 seamen. Remember the Maine!
The truth was that an accidental fired in the engine room, according to the ship’s captain. Remember The Maine | History| Smithsonian Magazine
That fact didn’t stop the U.S.-ARME from invading in June 1898 to prevent the Cubans from becoming sovereign. Spain surrendered. Cubans were not allowed to set terms. The U.S. seized part of Guantanamo province for a naval base, and land rich in nickel—all against the wishes of the Cuban people and their governments henceforth. The Yankees use this base today to torture people.
The Pentagon has invaded/intervened thousands of times. CIA coups and covert actions number in the thousands, too. I note a representative few other than those directly aimed at Russia and China.
- 1953 Iran. CIA and pro-Shah Iranian military overthrew the democratically elected Premier Mohammad Mosaddeq and reinstalled the brutal dictator Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlevi.
- 1954 Guatemala. CIA overthrew the democratically elected President Jacobo Árbenz and installed dictator Carlos Castillo Armas, and the reign of terror against leftists and especially Mayan Indians began—hundreds of thousands were murdered.
- September 11, 1973 Chile. Nixon-Kissinger-CIA overthrew democratically elected Salvador Allende and installed dictator Augusto Pinochet, who murdered tens of thousands of Chileans.
“I don’t see why we need to stand by and watch a country go communist because of the irresponsibility of its own people.” Secretary of State Henry Kissinger contended, June 27, 1970, before socialist Allende won the September 4 elections.
§October 6, 1976: Under CIA Director George H.W. Bush’s watch, CIA assets blew up Cubana Aviacion Flight 455 over Barbados en route to Havana. All 73 civilian passengers and crew were killed, including Cuba’s entire junior fencing team.
I became acquainted with Ignacio Rodriguez-Mena Castrillon, who should have been the lead steward on that flight. His wife, Mercedes Herrero was to come. They were both undercover agents for Cuba’s intelligence service. They had infiltrated the CIA. Due to a mix-up, they did not make that flight so Ignacio’s best friend took his place.
Ignacio told me that when he met his CIA handler, Nicolás, in Madrid some days later, Ignacio hit and shook him. The agent had the audacity to tell Ignacio that if another plane he was to be on would be a target Ignacio would be informed in advance. (See his testimony, Backfire: The CIA’s Biggest Burn: Ridenour, Ron: 9780962497513: Amazon.com: Books, chapter two, The Dean.)
The killers were two Cuban exile CIA assets, Luis Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch, plus Venezuelans Freddy Lugo and Hernan Ricardo Lozano. Trinidad police and Guyana’s foreign minister revealed the bombers’ identities. The judge in the forthcoming trial said there were dossiers of evidence. They disappeared. All four accomplices even bragged to right-wing Venezuela media about their “anti-Communist” sabotage. Leaked Iran-Contragate documents showed that President Ronald Reagan’s main organizer, Colonel Oliver North, used profits from the Iran weapons sales to secure Posada’s escape from a Venezuelan prison, in 1985. CIA terrorist Posada Carriles dead at 90 – World Socialist Web Site (wsws.org)
§1976-83 Operation Condor
The CIA saw to it that military regimes took power in nearly all of South America. Hundreds of thousands of dissidents to dictatorship were tortured and/or murdered.
One Example: Grenada
Grenada does not border the United States as does Ukraine border Russia. It is 4,377 kilometers from the “Greatest Democracy” in the world, but the U.S. government said it felt threatened anyway. In 1983, Grenada’s population was 96,020.
When an internal conflict of governing leftist forces occurred, President Ronald Reagan saw his chance to expand the empire. He claimed that the 600 U.S. medical students studying on the island could be in danger, albeit none requested assistance. Nevertheless, Reagan wanted to prevent Cuban influence. There were 784 Cubans in Grenada; 636 were constructing an airport alongside English construction workers—a joint UK/Cuba effort. Reagan ignored England’s investment.
On October 25 1983, the invading force consisted of 7,600 U.S. army, air force, navy, marines. They defeated Grenadian resistance in a few days. The U.S. then put a puppet government in office, and kicked out all Cubans and the few Russian diplomats-advisors.
There were no sanctions against the U.S., no international court trials, no Western tears for the Grenadian and Cuban dead. (I went to jail briefly in Copenhagen for smashing two huge front windows of the Embassy of Death with cobblestones. I refused to pay the $10,000 in damages. Interestingly enough, the Foreign Ministry dropped the matter.)
The only time in the thousands of U.S. wars, military interventions, regime changes that it has been “sanctioned” was by the International Court of Justice. On June 27, 1986, the court found the U.S. guilty of mining Managua’s harbor aimed at preventing trade and killing civilians and others.
The United States refuses to participate in any international court as it did with the ICJ proceeding. Nor did it pay for any damages. Judgment of the International Court of Justice of 27 June 1986 concerning military and paramilitary activities in and against Nicaragua :
- Throughout the 1980s, Reagan aided El Salvador’s military dictatorship, which wantonly murdered civilians, including Archbishop Oscar Romero, many priests and nuns. In Nicaragua, Reagan went overboard aiding his extremely brutal “freedom fighter” contras. He even bypassed his own congress’ unique embargo of providing arms to those torturers. Reagan sold weapons to U.S. enemy, the Islamic State of Iran, which was at war with the U.S. ally Iraq (Saddam Hussein-led). He did so to use the funds for weapons to the contras.
- In the 1990s, Clinton/NATO warred against Yugoslavia, split it into five countries, carving Kosovo out of Albania. U.S./NATO ally in Albania was the Kosovo Liberation Army, which was on the U.S. and EU terrorist list for drug smuggling, trading in human organs, and arms smuggling.
It was Kosovo’s KLA leader and PM Hashim Thaci who led a “gangster state”. In 2010, Council of Europe inquiry reported that KLA murdered Serbian prisoners, in order to sell their kidneys. The report even cited FBI sources. Kosovo PM is head of human organ and arms ring, Council of Europe reports | Kosovo | The Guardian
No matter, the CIA financed and armed the terrorist KLA. They killed between 5,000 and 18,000 Serbs in 78 days; wounded 15,000; destroyed 25,000 homes, dozens of schools and churches. The U.S. got their terrorists to become the new government of the new “nation” Kosovo, and it got one of its biggest bases at Camp Bondstell.
Clinton/NATO had Serbian and Yugoslav President Slobodan Milošević arrested by an international court. Imprisoned by Western forces, they refused to let Milosevic, who had a weak heart, see a cardiologist. Instead, guards gave him a pill without his knowledge and he died of a “heart attack”, March 11, 2006. Ten years later, March 24, 2016, the International Criminal Tribunal court on Yugoslavia (ICTY) found Milosevic not guilty of the accused crimes. The exoneration, however, was buried on page 1,303 of a 2,590-page verdict. Trial of Slobodan Milošević – Wikipedia
§1990 Gulf War against Iraq
U.S. war crimes in Iraq | Mary Scully Reports
U.S./UK conducted a “no-fly zone” over Iraq beginning in 1991 and for many years. They bombed “targets” at will. By 1995, half-a-million Iraqi children had been killed by the invaders. On May 12, 1996, U.S. ambassador to the UN, Madeleine Albright told CBS 60 Minutes, “the price is worth it.” Clinton promoted her to be his secretary of state. (574) Madeleine Albright – The deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children was worth it for Iraq’s non existent WMD’s – YouTube
The U.S.-ARME three wars against Iraqis (Gulf War, Iraq War by Coalition of the Willing, War in Iraq) are responsible for over one million deaths, and the destruction and plundering of some of the greatest treasures from the cradle of civilization. The cost to U.S. tax payers is estimated by various sources of $2 to $3 trillion. Iraq War – Wikipedia

Our Future Will Entail a Long-time Split and Warring World
Nearly all mainstream journalists fall into the current groupthink propaganda against Russia. They simply mimick what the U.S.-ARME lies about. This has succeeded in obtaining nearly the entire Western capitalist world support for their proxy war in Ukraine. Wall Street/European weapons industry is celebrating enormous profits. They all blame the war on Russia, which is doing what well-equipped sovereign states would do to protect its sovereignty. President Putin is no Yeltsin, who allowed the bullying world policeman to nearly take Russia under its control.
So much information is needed to put this war into a contextual perspective—such as pro-fascist Volodymyr Zelensky’s role. He betrays his Jewish people, especially the millions murdered by German Nazis along with Ukrainian fascists whose modern descendants are herald today.
Even as president, Zelensky does not want to pay taxes. The British Establishment The Guardian even wrote about his hiding wealth offshore. The October 2021 article appeared as Russian troops were exercising two hundred kilometers from Ukraine’s borders, something the West complained bitterly about—as if it never exercises its troops with Russia as its war game target. Revealed: ‘anti-oligarch’ Ukrainian president’s offshore connections | Volodymyr Zelenskiy | The Guardian
Zelensky publically declaring he wanted to join NATO and possess nuclear weapons. On February 19, 2022 he made his threat, in Munich, to deploy nuclear weapons—which would be able to hit Moscow within five minutes. President Putin responded by finally recognizing the sovereign independence of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. On February 24, President Putin launched the “special military operation.” In so doing, he referenced Zelenskyy’s nuclear weapons pledge: “This is not empty bravado.”
Had Russia actually planned the “special military operation” in advance of the announcement, it would have retrieved the half of its gold and foreign exchange that its financial ministers had stupidly placed in Western financial centers. Now, the West has stolen their wealth. Russia legitimately felt there was no other way to “reason” with the Empire of Lies, as President Putin finally named the U.S. for what it is. Dumbshit Russians? | (paulcraigroberts.org)
Western politicians and MSM fail to let us know that two months before the president launched the “special military operation”, his government offered a peace treaty, December 17, 2021. Treaty between The United States of America and the Russian Federation on security guarantees – Министерство иностранных дел Российской Федерации (mid.ru)
Key points. Article 1. “The Parties shall cooperate on the basis of principles of indivisible, equal and undiminished security and to these ends: shall not take actions nor participate in or support activities that affect the security of the other Party.”
Article 3. “The Parties shall not use the territories of other States with a view to preparing or carrying out an armed attack against the other Party or other actions affecting core security interests of the other Party.”
Article 4. “The United States of America shall undertake to prevent further eastward expansion of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and deny accession to the Alliance to the States of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.”
Article 5. “The Parties shall refrain from deploying their armed forces and armaments, including in the framework of international organizations, military alliances or coalitions, in the areas where such deployment could be perceived by the other Party as a threat to its national security, with the exception of such deployment within the natural territories of the Parties.”
After the U.S., NATO and Ukraine ignored this genuine peace offer, and even ridiculed it, President Putin sent in military forces to prevent U.S./NATO/Ukraine aggression against Russia’s existence.
Daniel Kovalik is one of several international law attorneys who make the argument that Article 51 of the United Nations Charter not only opposes “unilateral acts of war”, but also provides for self-defense when a nation’s sovereignty is at stake.
“There is no doubt that Russia has been threatened, and in a quite profound way, with concrete destabilizing efforts by the U.S., NATO and their extremist surrogates in Ukraine. Russia has been so threatened for a full eight years. And Russia has witnessed what such destabilizing efforts have meant for other countries, from Iraq to Afghanistan to Syria to Libya – that is, nearly a total annihilation of the country as a functioning nation-state.
“It is hard to conceive of a more pressing case for the need to act in defense of the nation. While the UN Charter prohibits unilateral acts of war, it also provides, in Article 51, that“[n]othing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of individual or collective self-defense… ” And this right of self-defense has been interpreted to permit countries to respond, not only to actual armed attacks, but also to the threat of imminent attack.
“In light of the above, it is my assessment that this right has been triggered in the instant case, and that Russia had a right to act in its own self-defense by intervening in Ukraine, which had become a proxy of the U.S. and NATO for an assault – not only on Russian ethnics within Ukraine – but also upon Russia itself. A contrary conclusion would simply ignore the dire realities facing Russia.”
Why Russia’s Intervention in Ukraine is Legal Under International Law | Algora Blog
Kovalik wrote another piece concerning Russia’s right to self-defense. Russia’s Invasion Signifies The End Of An Era Of Unipolar American Power – PopularResistance.Org
“International law experts, such as Professor Francis A. Boyle, have commented that Russia was acting within the self-defense provision of Article 51 of the UN Charter through its Ukraine operations given the real and imminent threat that Ukraine forces represented to Russia and to the ethnic Russians living in Ukraine (many of whom are Russian citizens). (Boyle also argues, by the way, that the U.S.’s biolabs in Ukraine are definitely bio-weapons facilities, and he should know given that he helped draft the biological weapons ban Convention.)”
According to Reuters and the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, by August perhaps as many as 30,000 people have been killed; about half Russians. Nevertheless, Zelensky claims “Putin is a war criminal”, “worse than Adolf Hitler”—ca. 85 million dead. Explainer: Blood, treasure and chaos – the cost of Russia’s war in Ukraine | Reuters
Since Russia’s defensive advance into Ukraine, the U.S. and its vassal states have spent somewhere between $200 and $300 billion in cash for Ukraine, plus sending it Ukraine through Poland billions-worth of weapons already on hand. New weapons are under construction. The West is spending more billions to house and feed about seven millions Ukrainian refugees. Private donations are also being raised by media audiences.
Some donations end in private hands, and much else is quickly used. Zelensky just asked the N.Y. Stock Exchange to invest; that is, “to plunder his country while he crushes the labor rights of its citizens.” Zelensky rings New York Stock Exchange bell as Euro dips below dollar – The Grayzone
This will cause the West to find more areas to sanction Russia. At least 40 countries under U.S.’s umbrella already have made hundreds of sanctions: almost no trade with Russia; punishing its finances internationally; and preventing Russia-Germany Nord Stream II flow of natural gas through 1,224 kilometer pipes from Russia to Germany, and beyond in Europe. This is a loss to Russia of $11 billion just for starters. It is also contrary to “free market competition”.
Nevertheless, they still expect Russia to continue sending the warmongers natural gas. Russia is cutting back on deliveries, yet if the State were to respond to the aggressors in kind, it ought to cut off all fuels to them.
Scandinavia is not a peaceful democracy, nor close to even wanting socialism Bernie Sanders.
The self-imposed sanctions against Russia are so extensive that the “chickens are coming home to roost”. Gas, oil and electricity rates soar by the hour—between two and eleven times normal. In Denmark, where I live, some of its city governments are screwing down for heat in school classrooms, and shutting street lamps at night. This is to reduce of Russia’s natural gas, in order to be in “solidarity with Ukraine”, say politicians. Some citizens have begun to take umbrage, explaining that darkened neighborhood streets encourage thieves and rapists.
More dirty coal is being dug in Germany and England. Germany and Sweden are reopening nuclear energy power plants. One of the most polluting of all fossil fuels, fracking shale rock, is big business in the U.S., which is now transporting the liquid gas to Europe, and England has lifted its ban on doing the same. Fracking – Fuel for Human Safety (wordpress.com)
As all fossil fuel and electricity rates increase drastically so do food prices. Inflation skyrockets. The rich get richer. Major capitalists, such as the world’s largest shipping company, Møller-Mærsk, scoop up record profits. The Danish shipping corporation and other major capitalists are overflowing with profits, yet the government won’t tax them more, in fact, during the current election campaign some parties are calling for less taxes for the rich.
Health workers tell us anxiety and stress, uncertainty for our future is the major health problem. A recent study shows that half of teenage girls don’t like themselves. Waiting lists for psychological help is from one to two years. Welfare programs have been reduced. Fewer youth wish to study to become health workers and teachers than ever before. The health system is collapsing for lack of funds, and overworked nurses and doctors are exhausted—all because half the world’s governments think it best to support the U.S.-ARME in its fanaticism to be the world’s policeman.
Denmark’s Social Democrat government seemed to foresee that Russia might fight for its sovereignty at some point. Two weeks before President Putin announced that Russia would stop Ukraine from entering NATO and obtaining nuclear weapons, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen surprised most Danes by reversing the nation’s long-held policy of not harboring foreign troops. The government invited—that is, has been told by—the United States military to send troops and massive weaponry to Denmark on a permanent basis. That requires its harbor in west Denmark (Esbjerg) be expanded, in order to allow huge war ships to dock. More millions down the drain.
At the same time, Denmark has allowed armed Danish mercenaries to enter Ukraine through Poland. Denmark has sent Ukraine millions of dollars in cash and warehoused weapons, such as missiles that can destroy ships. It has doubled funds for its own military budget; increased its NATO budget to two percent of gross national product; and is preparing to spend $7 billion to rebuilt its war fleet into, as it says, “a superpower naval force.”
To make up for uncontrollable free market price hikes the government has presented a $12 billion bank loan guarantee to energy corporations. This, when the media has to tell us that their profits have never been so great.
At the cost of many more $millions, the government sent two fighter jets, massive weaponry including tanks, and one thousand troops to “defend the Baltic states and Poland against a Russian invasion”. It doesn’t occur to politicians and MSM that IF Russia was so dumb as to invade a NATO country, then 30 others would retaliate. One country alone would be thoroughly crushed in such circumstances.
All this waste of money and yet the government has the gumption to increase the annual “salary” of the octogenarian Viking Queen Margrethe, from $12.5 million to $13 million, and her family receives a similar increase to $4 million. Furthermore, she has access to scores of castles and manors, a private aircraft, a state ship, and paid trips wherever she travels.
Some Danish analysts consider that the Social Democrats are outdoing the more traditionally warring bourgeois party (Venstre). Its former PM Anders Fogh Rasmussen was promoted to head NATO after he warred against Iraq on the lie that it had massive destructive weapons. Following his two terms, another Scandinavia prime minister, Norwegian Jens Stoltenberg, was handed the post where he has the distinction of having rejected every Russian proposal to find a peaceful solution.
Even Denmark’s former colony, Iceland, where 330,000 people live in peace without an army, has embraced Zelensky’s version of Ukraine. On May 6, Zelensky spoke to Iceland’s parliament, asking as always for more financial and military aid. By August, Iceland had sent $8.5 million in aid, and is sending a freighter to transport military equipment from Slovenia to Ukraine.
The only anti-NATO political party in Iceland is the Left Greens, and its leader is the current Prime Minister, Katrin Jakobsdóttir. During her eulogy to Zelensky, following his speech, she said:
“Ukraine-Iceland have common history back to Viking days.” Apparently, she either forgot, or accepts, that Norwegian Vikings invaded Ireland (among many countries), murdering many and plundering their wealth, enslaved some of its people and sailed some to the uninhabited island of Iceland. In 874, they began to build a town that is now Reykavik. Could Icelanders Herald Path to Economic Equality with Prosperity and Peace? – CovertAction Magazine

Long-time neutral Scandinavian countries Sweden and Finland are joining NATO as the propaganda hysteria has finally convinced a majority of its peoples to join the war-makers. Finland fought side by side with German Nazis inside Russia for three years during WWII. It has a 1,300 kilometer border with Russia, and will be a major threat to Russia.
Despite the West (plus Japan and South Korea) massive sanctions against the Russian people, their living conditions have not drastically deteriorated.
At the Vladivostok Economic Forum, September 7, President Vladimir Putin spoke optimistically. This is Reuter’s translation. Putin speaks at forum in Russia’s Far East region (yahoo.com)
“We have not lost anything and will not lose anything. In terms of what we have gained, I can say that the main gain has been the strengthening of our sovereignty.”
“Of course, a certain polarization is taking place, both in the world and within the country, but I believe that this will only be beneficial, because everything that is unnecessary, harmful and everything that prevents us from moving forward will be rejected.”
“Russia decided, after repeated attempts to resolve this issue peacefully, to respond tit-for-tat, the way our potential adversary acted … All our actions are aimed at helping the people who live in Donbas. This is our duty and we will fulfil it to the end. This will ultimately strengthen our country from within, as well as its foreign policy positions.”
“Other challenges of a global nature that threaten the whole world have replaced the pandemic. I am speaking of the West’s sanctions fever, with its brazen, aggressive attempt to impose models of behaviour on other countries, to deprive them of their sovereignty and subordinate them to their will. There is nothing unusual in this. This is the policy that the West has collectively pursued for decades.”
“Western countries are striving to maintain a former world order that is beneficial only to them, to force everyone to live according to the infamous rules that they themselves invented and regularly violate, rules they are constantly changing for themselves depending on the current circumstances.”
“In the spring, many foreign corporations rushed to leave Russia, believing that our country would suffer more from this than others. But now we are seeing how production and jobs in Europe are closing one after another. One of the main reasons for this, of course, is the severance of business ties with Russia. The competitiveness of European enterprises is declining because EU authorities themselves are depriving them of available raw materials, energy resources and sales markets.”
“Will there be any political decisions that contradict the [energy fuel] contracts? Yes, we just won’t fulfil them. We will not supply anything at all if it contradicts our interests. We will not supply gas, oil, coal, heating oil – we will not supply anything.”
“In Germany we are seeing demonstrations demanding that Nord Stream 2 be launched. We share the demands made by German consumers. We are ready to do it tomorrow, all you have to do is press a button. Well, we didn’t impose sanctions on Nord Stream 2. They did it under pressure from the Americans.”
Ukraine had been shelling the Zaporozhye nuclear plant (ZAPP), which Russia captured in March. The missiles hitting it were/are supplied by the U.S./NATO. Several small fires have happened and been extinguished at the plant. Quite some time after President Putin asked the UN nuclear supervising agency IAES to investigate, as of September 9 three of its four reactors were closed, and the last one is expected to shut down soon, which will cut off one-fifth of Ukraine’s electricity.
“The shelling has destroyed the power infrastructure feeding the city, where staff operating the plant live, causing a complete blackout that also threatens the nuclear facility,” Rafael Mariano Grossi of the IAES reported. “Given the increased and continued shelling, there is little likelihood of re-establishing reliable offsite power to the plant.” Ukraine: Shelling in nearby city putting Zaporizhzhya nuclear plant at risk | | UN News
U.S./Ukraine claim that the Russians who guard it and live there are responsible. That they would kill themselves is totally twisted logic. If the plant is exploded, the mighty Dnieper River and nearby Black Sea would be contaminated. Europe and beyond would be catastrophically contaminated with radiation.
“We control the station, our servicemen are stationed there, are we shooting at ourselves or what? It’s complete nonsense,” Putin speaks at forum in Russia’s Far East region (yahoo.com)
The United Nations is weak. It dare not call out the United States. While Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warns us that the current war is suicidal, he fails to cite who is to blame. Guterres feels he can only say, “The World is one step from nuclear annihilation”.
There are some positive developments in the New World Order. More people in the world are realizing that the United States is sick and in moral decay. Here are only four of many reasons for that: Two mass murders (four or more deaths) daily; school shootings weekly; four percent of the world’s population with one-fourth of its prisoners; greatest cause of deaths is prescribed and illegal drugs/opioids.
