Schrödinger’s terrorists: Washington warmongers suddenly worried about Al-Qaeda and ISIS, amid Afghanistan agony

I am an American constitutional lawyer – and I see our government using Covid-19 to take away our fundamental rights

Do we really think “it can’t happen here” in America? Could we quarantine the constitution? Are we doing it already? Panics from pandemics unleash unchecked governmental power.

The richest and most war-mongering nation on Earth is still addicted to bombing poor, defenseless nations

A nation-state version of a psychopath, the US refuses to give up its addiction to bombing innocent people. In just over a month, it’s bombed Syria, Iraq, Somalia and Afghanistan – and shows no signs of developing a conscience. Kill anything that moves March 15, 1968 was a normal day in America.
