Die Welt muss aufhören, nach der Pfeife der Finanzoligarchie und der Rüstungsindustrie der USA in den Abgrund zu tanzen!

Als unter Bill Clinton die nach dem Ende des Kalten Krieges aufkeimende Hoffnung auf einen dauerhaften Frieden erstickt und ohne UN-Mandat Jugoslawien zerschlagen wurde, als unter Georg W. Bush – angeblich als „Vergeltung“ für die nach wie vor nicht aufgeklärten 9/11-Anschläge – Afghanistan überfallen, der Krieg gegen den Irak herbeigelogen und der ABM-Vertrag mit Russland gekündigt wurde, als unter „Friedensengel“ Barack Obama Libyen bombardiert, Syrien destabilisiert und der völkerrechtswidrige US-Drohnenkrieg eskaliert wurde, haben die meisten Medien sich jeder Kritik enthalten und diese Präsidentendarsteller, die auch nur Marionetten der US-Finanz- und Rüstungsindustrie waren, sogar noch bejubelt.

New war authorization from Congress unveiled following Syria strikes

„For too long, Congress has given presidents a blank check to wage war. We’ve let the 9/11 and Iraq War authorizations get stretched to justify wars against multiple terrorist groups in over a dozen countries, from Niger to the Philippines,“ Kaine said. „Our proposal finally repeals those authorizations and makes Congress do its job by weighing in on where, when and with who we are at war.“

Will Congress Ever Limit the Forever-Expanding 9/11 War?

(28.10.2017) The law, commonly called the A.U.M.F., on its face provided congressional authorization to use military force only against nations, groups or individuals responsible for the attacks.
