Call It The Department Of Aggression, Not “Defense”

“It’s silly to call the US war machine the Department of Defense. The US military doesn’t do ‘defense’, it does nonstop unprovoked aggression around the world. Defense is what the nations who resist US acts of aggression against them are doing. … If you believe the mainstream narrative about any US-targeted nation you will wind up on the wrong side of debates about that nation. This is because the US empire is the single most corrupt and murderous institution on earth and its power is held in place by lies and propaganda. … It’s so obnoxious how the empire destroys entire countries and sows chaos, destruction and poverty around the world and the only mainstream pushback we ever see against any part of this is opposition to the arrival of immigrants who are fleeing that devastation.” (11/13/21)
