The New U.S. War on Western Sahara

The New U.S. War on Western Sahara

I’m not misusing the word “war” to mean something like the war on Christmas or drugs or some TV pundit whom somebody else insulted. I mean war. There is a new U.S. war in Western Sahara, being waged by Morocco with the support of the U.S. military. The U.S. military,… »

Everything Will Fundamentally Change

Everything Will Fundamentally Change

In June 2019, Joe Biden promised wealthy so-called donors that nothing would fundamentally change. At this moment hundreds of millions of people — from those shooting off fireworks to those ranting as though they will soon shoot up public places in their MAGA hats — seem convinced that everything will… »

Troops Out of Germany and Down a Rabbit Hole

Troops Out of Germany and Down a Rabbit Hole

By David Swanson I read this nightmare fantasy in the Financial Times: “Of course, a second term for Mr Trump would have a wholly different impact on US-German relations than would a Joe Biden presidency. It is conceivable that a victorious Mr Trump would push hard to end US wars… »

Military Bases Never Go Unused

Military Bases Never Go Unused

By David Swanson – World BEYOND War If, like me, you have the unfortunate habit of pointing out the dishonesty of the cases made for various wars, and you begin to persuade people that the wars are not actually for the eradication of the weapons of mass destruction that they… »

Unique New U.S. Genre Emerges: The War-Is-Good-for-You Book

Unique New U.S. Genre Emerges: The War-Is-Good-for-You Book

The New York Times loves the latest war-is-good-for-you book, War: How Conflict Shaped Us by Margaret MacMillan. The book fits into the growing and exclusively U.S. genre that includes Ian Morris’s War: What Is It Good For? Conflict and Progress of Civilization from Primates to Robots (Morris came to the U.S. from the U.K. decades ago)… »

Conversion to Peaceful Industries Just Happened

Conversion to Peaceful Industries Just Happened

The greatest impediment to doing anything, for homo sapiens, is often that it hasn’t already been done. “Well, sure, that sounds easy enough, but I just don’t know. I’ve never seen it done and my cousin’s friend heard it was impossible.” The greatest means of smashing through that impediment is for… »

The Supreme Court Vacancy Is in the Hands of the House of Representatives

The Supreme Court Vacancy Is in the Hands of the House of Representatives

I know the common story is that the Supreme Court vacancy is a matter for the U.S. Senate. But if you read this recent memo on what the Democrats could do if they really wanted to prevent packing the Court with rightwingers, something may jump out at you: The House also… »

Unvanquishable Number

Unvanquishable Number

By David Swanson On September 21, the International Day of Peace, you will be able to watch online the new film “We Are Many,” and you darn well should. The topic is the single biggest day of activism on earth: February 15, 2003 — an unprecedented statement against war,… »

Both Dangerous: Trump and Jeffrey Goldberg

Both Dangerous: Trump and Jeffrey Goldberg

If we were to look beyond words to actions, there would be no doubt that virtually all U.S. politicians have, in effect, taken the Trump/Kissinger view of U.S. troops for as long as there have been U.S. troops. “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.” –Donald… »
