Protest the U.S.
Marching to WWIII
The U.S. is overtly waging war in six countries: Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen and Nigeria. The number of countries where the U.S. is waging covert military operations (special Ops) is said to be over 100. (See https://www.thenation.com/article/how-many-wars-is-the-us-really-fighting/). Recently, the U.S. confirmed it has used Depleted Uranium (DU) weapons in Syria. http://www.bandepleteduranium.org/en/united-states-confirms-fired-du-syria The U.S. has already confirmed use of DU weapons in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and Kosovo. The U.S. has used DU weapons in training at Pohakuloa and Schofield Barracks in Hawaii, in at least 15 other states and 3 foreign countries. Many countries are calling DU –Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) because of the long lasting (4.5 billion year half life) of harmful DU radiation effects.
In the next 9 years, the US Army will have more combat robots than humans. (See http://tinyurl.com/jjqp4ff ). This along with increasing use of killer air drones named Reaper and Predator. New experimental artificial intelligence software may allow drones to kill on their own without any human intervention. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/26/us/pentagon-artificial-intelligence-terminator.html?emc=edit_th_20161026&nl=todaysheadlines&nlid=73627&_r=1
Perhaps worst of all is the growing new U.S. Cold War rhetoric blaming Russia for nearly everything bad happening in the world. This increasing U.S. confrontational attitude toward Russia could lead to an accidental or intentional nuclear war in dangerous hot spot areas such as Syria or the Ukraine. http://www.commondreams.org/views/2016/10/15/warnings-new-world-war The U.S. and Russia together possess more than 90% of the world’s nuclear arsenal that is capable of destroying modern civilization as we know it. This warning of a possible WWIII on the horizon cannot be ignored. Citizens of the world must let their voices be heard loud and clear. No More War! A world of justice and peace is in the interest of all, except those who profit from selling arms and promoting perpetual war.
