Sanctions: A Wrecking Ball for a Global Economy
US sanctions on more than 40 countries are a “wrecking ball.” But they’re also a boomerang that is devastating Europe, and rapidly surging into the lives of people at home. High prices for gasoline, food and other necessities are the tip of an iceberg, or the headwinds of a hurricane. Much worse is headed our way. We need this book to understand what’s coming and get ready. We need the explanations and background, to really understand what’s happening, and we need the “Sanctions Kill Toolkit.”
Biden Travels East in Clouds of Mistrust
There’s a trust problem for the U.S. at all these global conferences. “Joe Biden comes to COP27 and makes new promises. He’s like a salesman selling goods with endless small print.” In Cambodia, “ASEAN leaders reiterated their strong ties with Beijing and issued a statement supporting One China, opposing independence for Taiwan.” And in Indonesia, the U.S. finds the G20 to be “a symbol of the transformation from the West having the only say to common governance across the globe…”

The US/NATO confrontation with Russia in Ukraine is achieving just the opposite of America’s aim of preventing China, Russia and their allies from acting independently of U.S. control over their trade and investment policy… the Biden Administration’s plan was to split Russia away from China and then cripple China’s own military and economic viability. But the effect of American diplomacy has been to drive Russia and China together, joining with Iran, India and other allies.
Anti-Russian Propaganda Limits Peace Prospects
Ukraine’s current leadership and its U.S./NATO backers would like to avoid a settlement that reflects the demographic and historical reality of the country. But this is precisely one key issue that should guide negotiations for a peace agreement. A peace agreement reflecting Russia’s legitimate concerns (voiced for many months and years) would establish a viable basis of cooperation by Russia with Ukraine and with Europe.

The canonization of Bush Sr.
The recent fawning canonization of George HW Bush (senior) on the occasion of his death was really too much for me. So I appreciate the comments of Glen Ford of Blackagendareport.com. He said, in part:? The daily whitewashing of imperial crimes that masquerades as...
