It's time to claim our Peace Dividend

It's time to claim our Peace Dividend

We need to beat swords into plowshares.

We need to beat swords into plowshares.

A program for real change...

What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Was it Assad or the CIA?

Did the CIA explode these chemical weapon bombs in Syria to whip the American people into a mood for a big war?

Think about this:

What motive would Assad all of a sudden have to bomb civilians with chemical weapons?
This has all the earmarks of a CIA action.

Have I gone "out on a limb" suggesting the CIA is responsible for the chemical weapons explosions in Syria?

I think not... Remember the USS Maine, the lies that led us into the Korean War, the Gulf of Tonkin and "weapons of mass destruction?"

U.S. imperialism uses incidents it creates while blaming others as the excuse and pretext to justify going to war.

Who, if not the CIA, was responsible for the huge 2011 explosion in Cyprus that brought down the democratically elected Communist government of Dimitris Christofias?

The CIA uses murder and mayhem to undermine governments all over the world not to Wall Street's liking so I don't think it is out of character for the CIA to be behind this release of chemical weapons in Syria.

After all, it was the noted journalist Seymour Hersh who made the charge that it was Hillary Clinton who helped arrange for these so-called "Syrian rebels" to attain Sarin nerve gas.

And then we have Trump looking for a way to try to make himself appear to be a legitimate President... something that isn't possible.
