Extremely Dangerous Times!

US Stoking Tensions with Russia, China, North Korea, etc.

Amid Global Climate Catastrophe!

     Weapons, weapons, and more weapons are not the way to world peace. More weapons are the path to global destruction from nuclear war if human civilization is not destroyed first by climate catastrophe.

     The US keeps pumping Billions of dollars of more powerful weapons into Ukraine for its proxy war with Russia. It is taking provocative actions by sailing US warships in the Taiwan strait, and even doing joint US-South Korea “decapitation drills,” to assassinate DPRK (North Korea) leader Kim Jong Un. (thedailybeast.com, Aug. 19). All of these actions are extremely dangerous. The US history of CIA assassinations and more recent hi-tech assassinations by Reaper drones must be making Kim Jong Un and other world leaders very nervous. Reaper assassin drones are now based at the Kaneohe Marine Corps Air Station on Oahu, and train at the Pohakuloa military base on Hawaii Island.

US Reaper Assassin Drone

     Humanity is, according to United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, “just one misunderstanding, one miscalculation away from nuclear annihilation.” https://popularresistance.org/the-terrifying-research-nuclear-powers-dont-want-you-to-see/

     “It’s beyond lunacy,” say scholars Noam Chomsky and Daniel Ellsberg. In their 90s, the two men tirelessly fight to warn people of the need for urgent action to deal with climate change and the threat of nuclear war. https://theanalysis.news/a-warning-from-chomsky-and-ellsberg/?cmid=1f754761-0e69-43de-9174-e1df07052447

    The US mass media, with its military and intelligence community experts, keep beating the drums of war for the US arms merchants, and the war-based economy of the US global empire. This has got to end. The US spends more on the military, $813 billion for fiscal year 2023, than the next nine countries, including China and Russia, combined. What is needed is a cooperative transition to a global economy of peace. Specifically in Ukraine, what is needed is not more weapons, but a ceasefire, and diplomatic efforts toward a negotiated settlement agreeable to all parties.

Peace is a Victory for all sides!

1. Mourn all victims of violence. 2. Reject violence & war as solutions. 3. Defend civil liberties.
4. Oppose all discrimination: anti-Islamic, anti-Semitic, anti-Hawaiian, anti-Black, anti-Asian, anti-Russian, etc.
5. Seek peace through peaceful means and work for justice in Hawai`i and around the world.
