The High Price of Becoming History

According to Reuters, in recent months the pace of mobilization in Ukraine has doubled. More than two years after the start of the war, the defending state still fails to recruit enough soldiers to even stabilize and hold the front line, let alone to advance. At the same time, as the local media suggest, it’s becoming more and more difficult for recruiters to fulfill their tasks. The population is not only tired of the fighting, but also losing faith in the possibility of winning the conflict. Citizens who have not yet been mobilized are looking for an opportunity to avoid conscription or even ..read more

‘Peace’ Seems To Be the Hardest Word
Antiwar.com Blog
by William Astore
3d ago
Reprinted from Bracing Views with the author’s permission. With apologies to Elton John and Bernie Taupin, “peace” seems to be the hardest word, for both Democrats and Republicans. This is hardly surprising. The National Security State is the unofficial fourth branch of government and arguably the most powerful. Presidents and Congress serve it, and the SCOTUS carves out special exceptions for it. Back in the days of a bit more honesty, it was called the Department of War. And so it remains. Let’s say you’re like me and you see war as humanity’s greatest failing. We kill and maim each other, w ..read more

‘I Am Not a Terrorist’: Letters From Gaza Children Decry Daily Horrors of Israeli Assault

A U.K.-based humanitarian group on Tuesday delivered “heartbreaking” letters from two Palestinian girls – including one who lost her arm in an Israeli attack – imploring new Labour Prime Minister Keir Starmer to “intervene and help bring about a permanent cease-fire” in Gaza. “We write to you with hearts full of sorrow and spirits crushed by the daily suffering inflicted upon us by the brutal war,” wrote 15-year-old Mais Abdel Hadi, president of the youth-led Palestinian Children’s Council, in a letter presented to Starmer’s office in London by the charity Christian Aid. Palestinian Children’s ..read more

Bipartisan Support for More Genocidal Nuclear Weapons

Reprinted from Bracing Views with the author’s permission. Whether the president’s name is Obama or Trump or Biden, whether it’s the red team in charge or the blue team, there was and remains strong bipartisan support for “modernization” and “investment” in new nuclear weapons for America. The new Sentinel ICBM, the new B-21 Raider bomber, and the new Columbia-class nuclear submarine may cost America as much as $2 trillion over the next thirty years while making genocidal nuclear war more rather than less likely. This is insanity. It’s time for a different path. It’s time for deep cuts in nucl ..read more

Trinity and the Parts Left Out of Oppenheimer

Reprinted with permission from Greg Mitchell’s substack Between Rock and a Hard Place. Every year at this time I trace the final days leading to the first use of the atomic bomb against two cities, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, in August 1945.   In this way the fateful, and in my view, tragic decisions made by President Truman, his advisers, and others, can be judged more clearly in “real time.”  As some know, this is a subject that I have explored in hundreds of articles, thousands of posts,  and in three books, since 1984:  Hiroshima in America (with Robert Jay Lifton), A ..read more

The Distraction of Joe Biden
Antiwar.com Blog
by William Astore
1w ago
Reprinted from Bracing Views with the author’s permission. Joe Biden has become a major distraction. Much like Donald Trump, he’s demanding far too much attention. As genocide continues in Gaza, as war continues to rage in Ukraine, as America continues to pursue militarism both at home and abroad, all the press can talk about is whether Biden should stay or go. The answer is obvious: he should go. Sure, Biden remains capable of having a “good” day in the sense of doing OK at a rally while reading prepared remarks from a teleprompter. Yet it’s impossible to ignore brain glitches where he introd ..read more
