The Bomb Didn’t Beat Japan … Stalin Did
(... ) It is troubling to consider, given the questions raised here, that the evidence of Hiroshima and Nagasaki is at the heart of everything we think about nuclear weapons. This event is the bedrock of the case for the importance of nuclear weapons. It is crucial to their unique status, the notion that the normal rules do not apply to nuclear weapons. It is an important measure of nuclear threats: Truman’s threat to visit a “rain of ruin” on Japan was the first explicit nuclear threat. It is key to the aura of enormous power that surrounds the weapons and makes them so important in international relations.

But what are we to make of all those conclusions if the traditional story of Hiroshima is called into doubt? Hiroshima is the center, the point from which all other claims and assertions radiate out. Yet the story we have been telling ourselves seems pretty far removed from the facts. What are we to think about nuclear weapons if this enormous first accomplishment — the miracle of Japan’s sudden surrender — turns out to be a myth?

Obama really hosed this one up, as he did in Libya (no not Benghazi). Here's one for kurtster: Kadafi completely dismantled his uranium enrichment program but Obama had to send military support to his opposition instead of staying the f out. We know he really did dismantle the program because the uranium is sitting in Tennessee.

Tulsi Gabbard calls out the US dirty war on Syria that Biden, aides admit to
While Joe Biden has faced some mild Congressional pushback for bombing the Iraq-Syria border, Tulsi Gabbard says her former colleagues are ignoring the larger issue: the ongoing US dirty war on Syria. After a decade of proxy warfare that empowered Al Qaeda and ISIS, the US is now occupying one-third of Syria and imposing crippling sanctions that are crushing Syria’s economy and preventing reconstruction.

While Gabbard has been vilified for her stance on Syria, many top White House officials — including Joe Biden himself — have already acknowledged the same facts that she has called out. Aaron Maté plays clips of Biden and some of his most senior aides admitting to the horrific realities of the US dirty war on Syria, and argues that Gabbard only stands apart in being willing to criticize it.

How can your book help BAR readers understand the current political and social climate?

David Vine: Most BAR readers probably don’t need much help understanding the current climate, but I hope my book will contribute to both understanding and political action around the COVID-19 pandemic, the struggle for racial justice, and the militarization of U.S. life. With the pandemic, my book shows how the U.S. government’s disastrous COVID response is not simply the fault of the Trump administration. Responsibility for this disaster lies in no small part in the long history of U.S. wars. Decades of investment in war have come at the expense of investments in public health infrastructure and the broader health and welfare of the country’s people. The Post-9/11 Wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, and beyond have cost U.S. taxpayers at least $6.4 trillion. A tiny fraction of those trillions could have saved countless lives by funding adequate supplies of PPE, testing and vaccine-production capacity, ventilators, and other public health tools.

I hope The United States of War helps show how U.S. wars have not provided protection but instead have made the country and the world less secure and more vulnerable to the real threats to our security. So too, I hope the book underlines the urgency of ending what’s become a system of endless war.

As the BLM/M4BL protests have shown, the United States’ endless wars have been fought at home and abroad. The United States of War explains how extrajudicial police murders and other violence inflicted on Black and Latinx communities, Native Americans, other people of color, and the poor are intimately linked with the long history of American warfare waged almost exclusively against people of color, dating to independence and 1492. My book shows how the U.S. military, much like police forces, has largely served the interests of businesses and wealthy, mostly white, mostly male elites.

Outgoing Syria Envoy Admits Hiding US Troop Numbers; Praises Trump’s Mideast Record
‘We were always playing shell games,’ says Amb. Jim Jeffrey, who also gives advice to President-elect Biden.
Far from undermining Middle East allies, Jeffrey said, Trump has sought “to build up our alliance system and basically stop nagging at them, show that Washington has their back including their domestic situations — they can do pretty much what they want, but they’re going to have to step up and do things.”

"You told us to send back the S-400s. We are not a tribal state, we are Turkey," Erdogan said in a televised speech in Malatya, eastern Turkey.

The Pentagon on Friday strongly condemned "Turkey's testing of this system, which risks serious consequences for our security relationship."

Turkey faces potential sanctions under a 2017 law known as CAATSA,  which mandates sanctions for any "significant" purchases of weapons from Russia.

Turkey had already been removed from the F-35 fighter jet program over the S-400 purchase.

Erdogan remained defiant on Sunday, saying: "Whatever your sanctions are, don't hesitate to apply them."

Sudan to Normalize Relations With Israel

President Trump predicts more Arab nations will follow

Dave DeCamp Posted on October 23, 2020 Categories News / , On Friday, President Trump announced that Sudan and Israel have agreed to normalize relations. Sudan will be the third Arab country to open up diplomatic ties under deals brokered by the Trump administration, following the UAE and Bahrain.

President Trump said he believes another five Arab nations will move to normalize with Israel, mentioning only Saudi Arabia by name. “We expect Saudi Arabia will be one of those countries,” he said.

The announcement came after Sudan agreed to pay $335 million to victims of the 1998 US embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania. The payment is being made in exchange for the US to remove Khartoum from the list of state sponsors of terror.

Over the past year, Sudan has been negotiating with the US to be removed from the list since the designation blacklists the African country from international financial institutions. The Trump administration is believed to have recently added normalizing with Israel to the preconditions needed to remove Khartoum from the terror list.

Also on Friday, Israel said it would not oppose any US weapons sales to the UAE, referencing a potential sale of F-35 fighter jets rumored to be part of Abu Dhabi’s normalization agreement. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the US gave him enough assurances that Washington will provide the Jewish state with enough arms to maintain its military superiority in the region.

For a critical mass, peace as a concept seems hard to fathom. As anti-war isn't necessarily the same as pro-peace... only a minority will understand this, imo.
