    ‘we’re within an inch of war almost every day’ in East Asia…just the way the military industrial complex and war mongering US likes it.

    • War-mongering U.S.? And the civil wars in Africa (Somalia and Sudan), the recent genocides in Bosnia and Rawanda, and the sectarian violence in Iraq, and the urban violence in Lebanon and Egypt, the Philippines, Myanmar, Syria and India, China, Iran, Venuzeula, and Pakistan all spending money stock-piling weapons of war when they can barely afford to feed their own people. How about the drug violence in Mexico or the organized crime violence in Brazil and Russia? How about Argentine and British war postering over the Faulkland Islands or Iran and the UAE bitter brawl over Abu Musa in the Persian Gulf? The disease has infected most nations on the planet and countries. From what I see; the whole planet is war-mongering. Many more who don’t have guns in their hands; have hate in their hearts and God says hate is the same as murder.

    With all the free trade relationships with china, they should take care of this issue. Perhaps china wants south korea as the trade for involvement. An aweful lot of fear mongering going on to further the globalization efforts.
    Syria is in chaos because through out history, it is how the elite take control. The dept of offense has been busy.

    The strategy of the London-centered financier oligarchy has always been to pit nations against one another to assure mutual destruction. Unfortunately, the US military and politcal system has pretty much been subverted to become the iron hammer of the Empire. Expect the worse in the coming days as the EuroZone comes unraveled.

I will not publish any comments involving nation, ethnicity, or race bashing. The comments will go straight to the trash can and the user will be banned. This blog is not a sounding board for anybody’s rants nor will it be used to find an audience for your bigotry.

    when I was a child, I thought by the year 2000 we would be like the Jetsons, I thought we would be doing a great thing for mankind by then, but alas those were only a childhood dream for the world has become more ruthless and destructive instead of helping one another all we want to do is hurt each other, why is that? Have we not learned from past history? Apparently not! I once heard of talk about colonizing another planet if one was found that can sustain life before we would end up doing is destroying that as well because the hate and disagreements as human beings would travel to the planet as well no matter how hard we tried to make it better. Maybe the end time is near, I couldn’t blame our Creator for it seems we just don’t learn what it means to live in peace and help each other instead of killing each other. If our destruction is going to happen soon, then so be it!

    The question is, are we really ready for all this. How do you prepare yourself for the end ?
    Do we all build bunkers and underground basements, and for what ? To continue to survive in a world we no longer recognise!
    Its just a case of, well we had our life, and now its coming to the end, what was the point of it ! ?

    I don’t understand all the hate and fighting that is going on, but I do believe that people are not the ones that want to fight eachother. I really believe people want peace. It’s the worlds governments that if anything are creating this mess and unfortunately, we all would suffer for their decisions. I really hope that it’s not the end whether it’s because of war or any natural disaster. I really feel that something bad is going to happen and it scares me to the core. How do we prepare not everyone has money to build a bunker and I really would like to have my children just as I’m sure any other parent would want their children to be safe and have the same chances that our governments families would have if something happened. It’s not fair and makes me angry that I feel so helpless that I wouldn’t be able to provide that for my family. Yes, I do stockpile but what good is it when you have to get your family to a safe place. I am so glad I found this website at least I can hear peoples thoughts and connect with what they are feeling plus learning the real truth of what is going on around the world.

        Thanks Phyllis, I have been worried about all these things that are going on around the world today and feel like I have no control, I try to put my mind at ease thinking at least I can store food if anything happens, but even if it isn’t war that happens something is going on and people are blind or just to atraid to think about it. I try to talk to my extended family about it and they think I’m crazy. I look around me all the time with such frustration and wanting to just scream to people to wake up and pay attention. They are so caught up in there everyday life worrying about famous people and material things and I’m like are you kidding me. Maybe I should calm down a little, buts its so hard when your gut is telling you something how can you ignore it. All I want to do is give my family a chance and how crazy is that? I just feel stuck with all these thoughts about what I can do, but no money to do it accept save food. Am I crazy? I’m just scared I don’t have a car and I live in New York City how do I even plan to go to a safe place with my family?

      People have always fought for peace, that’s the irony, unfortunately war is now about a host of modern dilemas, greed and power to name a few.
      Personaly, I hope it’s with God’s will, not man.

    Just finished watching Cage in “Lord of War”. So sad, and so true. Especially the text at the end about the Security Council Members being the biggest arms dealers.
    “Security Council”, what a laugh!

    My concern is about the grands, and the rest of the family, but the 7, 6, and 5 year olds are in my hands, and their grandmother. Everybody else can and will pretty much take care of themselves, and only themselves. Going to set them up a pool this weekend. I so see the Lord through their eyes when mine get clouded by rage, depression, resentment, and ego! Thank you Lord!
    Thanks to you too, Alvin, thanks a lot, bless you and your family.
