Every conflict America creates, causes more suffering among its own people. The last war still imperils lives of millions of Afghanis as America’s imperialism kills yet another country.
Iraq and North Korea have still not recovered from America’s civilian mass murders in the millions in those nations. But these wars brought no benefits whatsoever to Americans, only debt, fewer social services and a broken infrastructure.
America is spending a fortune on weapons against Russia and China now, and against COVID-19, while Americans fight each other internally over everything, and die in the process as 1,083,227 have died already from COVID-19.
What will the next pandemic be like if we must fight it during a world war?
by Micheal John, a former Defence and Foreign affairs writer for numerous Maclean Hunter and other Canadian and American publications, who has covered over one dozen wars since Vietnam. He is currently the Board-appointed CEO of the RINJ Foundation.
RINJ Women have eight Chapters in Russia, Luhansk, Donetsk, and Ukraine, all with divergent views of events and on the future of the regions. These are the people who have the full understanding of issues; the people who will live through the outcomes of the decisions they take; and the people who must solve these own problems. The situation in Eastern Europe is a challenging crisis for all the parties without America’s, Europe’s and NATO’s clamorous interference.
America is dragging the world into multiple regional conflicts in the Middle East, Asian Seas and Eastern Europe that could explode into world war at any minute.
With Earth’s human life support failing; a murderous pandemic raging; and America looking for wars to fight, the human race has never been in a bigger mess and that mess starts in America
Regardless of the costs in military equipment and lost human lives brought by American foreign policy and hegemony, over 50 million Americans live in poverty and 20 million Americans live in extreme poverty. The official numbers are 13.8 % poverty but NGOs are seeing something worse than that counting method within America’s inner city sidewalk tent villages, and under bridges across the country.
America’s new war is against Russia using Ukraine as the surrogate.
Since 2012, America has tried to enlist the Philippines government and gain control of that archipelago as a warfighting surrogate and launching pad for war against China.
Future historians will likely credit Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte for preventing the Philippines from becoming an American war surrogate against China, and instead, Duterte sending the exploitive Americans packing.
The USA did not go far away from the Philippines, however. It went to Australia.
As the US is arming Japan & South Korea with intermediate range nuclear missiles, it plans to do the same in Australia where it is already modifying Australian harbours to host America’s nuclear submarines, plus eight SSNs it with Britain intends to add to the Australian fleet in the 2030s.
Costly nuclear-propelled submarines are not going to save Australia from future pandemics, massive typhoons, and nation-wide fires.
The AUKUS deal will die because it is actually pretty stupid of Australia to set itself up as a prime target of China. Hypervelocity Chinese missiles with multiply targeted hypersonic warheads, coming across the Antarctic, would be unstoppable by Australia and by America a few minutes later. It would be the press of an extra button somewhere in China to wipe out Australia’s military platforms and the cities to which they are attached.
What is worse than this is that regardless of American blarney and puffery, Australia does not have a snowball’s chance in hell of building nuclear submarines by 2030 without sending many of the the nation’s people into the depths of poverty. It could do like America has done, sending its people to live in tents and under bridges without any health care, but Ozzies are not likely to reelect Scott Morrison with that in view. The madness of AUKUS-Nukes will be exposed.
Updating Australia’s ancient research and development arears to educate more engineers and scientists will take the next decade. But eight nuclear subs is not enough of a program to build the giant military complex needed.
Both America and Britain are struggling to feed their own behemoth war machines with enough arms contracts to keep everything afloat.
Australia’s lagging defence industrial base which has not built any kind of submarine in over two decades and at that, it was only a small few hulls, is far behind the arms production know-how curve (thank heavens?) and will need to gain huge international contracts in order to build an industrial capability and supporting academic and research infrastructure for its own domestic requirements to be completed. And then what? It will then need to compete with America, China, Russia, Britain, emerging India, and France for arms sales to developing nations, or even the smallest slices of the pie.
In order to maintain a large defence industrial complex, a country needs to operate a warfighting military. And then go fight wars. Both America and Britain do that. So does Russia. Those are the three top sellers of arms in the world in the past. Period.
Those nations’ warfighting is unmatchable by Australia. The Australian government is a foolish dupe of America. For sure, France had a far better boat solution, if any solution at all was really necessary. The cost of ending the SSK project with France will be blistering.
Australia would be better off spending its $billions on ending climate change and for the intermediate time, protecting the Australian people from the devastating pandemics and meteorological disasters the country is already facing in minor doses. The worst has yet to come.
The Kremlin’s patience with America is tanking.
Having intermediate nuclear missiles in Japan and in South Korea puts Moscow a few minutes away from total destruction.
Being surrounded in Eastern Europe with American INF missiles is also boiling blood in Russia. Some Generals are boiling mad, quite frankly, says Svetlana who is a RINJ Women coordinator in northern Moscow. Her husband is a soldier and several generations in her past were military men. She is a full bore military wife and is in touch with a wide range of military families in Moscow. “People are angry,” she says. “They don’t like what is happening around Russia and are angry that Putin and Lavrov have not done enough to stop the endangering of Russians’ security.”
She is right. Putin and Lavrov have been necessarily playing sales management roles to bolster the Russian economy which has been under heavy sanctions while being steered to more self-sufficiency by Putin’s cabinet.
Vladimir Putin (d.o.b. 7 October, 1952) is a spring chicken compared to America’s recent leaders, but he cannot let his eastern seaboard bristle with idiot Biden’s intermediate nuclear missiles as his legacy. Putin will try every chess move before pressing launch buttons but launch he must if the chess game does not pan out.
Vladimir Putin is the world’s most seasoned statesman. But President Putin is not a man to push too far. He is ruthless, and he needs to be ruthless because he loves his people and they are in grave danger from the rest of the world.
Polls in America suggest that Americans are OK with nuclear war against North Korea but roughly half would like to see an arms control truce with Russia if possible. BUt Biden is not moving in that direction.
- America has been provoking Russia for years. Today America says it is the other way around.
- America describes Russia as aggressive. But it is America that has been slaughtering millions since WWII.
The Ukraine War Surrogacy
The former President of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko says the world leaders must unite to fight increasing Russian aggression. But in his past he has not treated ethnic Russian minorities in Ukraine very well, say those people.
Petro Oleksiyovych Poroshenko, former President of Ukraine and de facto leader of Ukraine Opposition Party speaks to Sky News in this video above.
For years, America has moved weapons closer to Russia as it gained influence in former Soviet nations since the collapse of the Soviet Union three decades ago. NATO, which is controlled by America, has expanded to surround Russia with troops and missiles.
Russia has drawn a Red Line at Ukraine and there are centuries of history behind that sensitivity.
In July 2021, Vladimir Putin explained in an essay that, ” I would like to emphasize that the wall that has emerged in recent years between Russia and Ukraine, between the parts of what is essentially the same historical and spiritual space, to my mind is our great common misfortune and tragedy. These are, first and foremost, the consequences of our own mistakes made at different periods of time. But these are also the result of deliberate efforts by those forces that have always sought to undermine our unity. The formula they apply has been known from time immemorial – divide and rule. There is nothing new here. Hence the attempts to play on the ‘national question’ and sow discord among people, the overarching goal being to divide and then to pit the parts of a single people against one another.”
“To have a better understanding of the present and look into the future, we need to turn to history. Certainly, it is impossible to cover in this article all the developments that have taken place over more than a thousand years. But I will focus on the key, pivotal moments that are important for us to remember, both in Russia and Ukraine.
“Russians, Ukrainians, and Belarusians are all descendants of Ancient Rus, which was the largest state in Europe. Slavic and other tribes across the vast territory – from Ladoga, Novgorod, and Pskov to Kiev and Chernigov – were bound together by one language (which we now refer to as Old Russian), economic ties, the rule of the princes of the Rurik dynasty, and – after the baptism of Rus – the Orthodox faith. The spiritual choice made by St. Vladimir, who was both Prince of Novgorod and Grand Prince of Kiev, still largely determines our affinity today,” writes President Vladimir Putin. Continue reading President Putin’s essay here.
“In 2008, Kiev was actively pushing to integrate Ukraine into the West not only economically and politically, but also militarily. And yet Russia didn’t intervene. So what’s changed between 16 April 2014 and then?
“The Ukraine crisis is still raging, but it’s important to look back at events in recent years to try to understand why President Vladimir Putin sprang into action, first by taking Crimea and then by imposing a difficult choice on the interim government in Kiev:
‘Either forswear membership in any Western military alliance and accept the federalization of Ukraine or risk losing more land.’
“One obvious explanation is that Putin’s hand was forced by the ascent of radical nationalist elements to power in Kiev after the collapse of the February 21 deal between Ukraine’s opposition and then president Viktor Yanukovych.
“Prior to that deal, Putin had strong hopes that it would be either the incumbent head of the Ukrainian state or its former premier Yulia Tymoshenko – whose release from prison was being negotiated at that time – who would win the early presidential elections that were stipulated by the February 21 agreement. Putin knew that both of the two contenders well and was confident that neither of them would antagonize Russia.
“But when the radical wing of the Ukrainian opposition refused to accept the February 21 deal and forced Yanukovych to flee, Putin had to act as he became seriously concerned that Russia would ‘lose’ Ukraine. After all, the Ukrainian radicals made no secret of their aversion to cooperation with Russia or their belief that Ukraine should pursue integration with the West.” Read more?
The American NATO narrative is all about “Russian Aggression” but the past three decades have been about American aggression and conflicts: in Somalia, in North Korea, in Iran, in Iraq, in the Asian Seas, and in Afghanistan.
Additionally, America has withdrawn from all of its nuclear arms treaties with Russia.
“Today, we are witnessing the unravelling of the international arms control architecture and a gradual backtracking on established arms control agreements, which have supported global stability, restraint, and transparency. The continued existence of nuclear weapons poses an ever-greater threat to the survival of humanity. While the number of nuclear weapons has dropped from more than 60,000 during the Cold War to around 14,000 today, nuclear weapons are more powerful today. At the same time relations between nuclear-armed states are fraying, and divisions over the pace and scale of disarmament are growing.
When the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty ended in August 2019, the UN Secretary-General deplored the loss of “an invaluable brake on nuclear war”. The New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START) faces a similar demise. The total elimination of nuclear weapons can still be achieved, but it will require a renewed commitment to trust and cooperation between the world’s most powerful countries. The Secretary-General has called on states to renew fervour on outstanding and current arms control agreements.”
If Russia moved nuclear missiles, troops and tanks to Cuba and Venezuela, America would amass naval assets around Cuba and the 82nd Airborne, the 101st Airborne Division and 24th Infantry Division would be in Colombia or on their way—or something like that.
In other words, if Russia did to America what America has done to Russia since 1997, America would have been raising particular hell long ago.
What did America do to Russia these past two decades that created so much hostility?
America has wiggled into Ukraine and seized substantial control with gobs of cash money bribing American officials and their children and America provide hundreds of millions if not $billions in military assets to the Ukraine which is now nearly a surrogate nation of America. Sealing that deal would mean including Ukraine in NATO which America is seeking and will achieve according to many Russian sources.
Biden fears Russia will oust US armed forces, contractors & political maestros directing the Kiev choir of Volodymyr Zelensky, the successor to the ousted Petro Poroshenko who led the previous corrupted American puppet government in Ukraine.
The activities of NATO, which in a de facto sense, America controls, surround Russia with missiles and troops of America. Today America has captured Ukraine as a surrogate nation and fears Russia will try and oust America. America is writing scare scenarios that Russia denies.
The China-Russia Military Alliance has expanded to include Iran‘s Navy
“The three sides need to enhance cooperation in non-traditional security areas, especially in maritime security, as currently some countries continue to cause trouble in the sea, which is apparently a violation of international law,” military commentator and former PLA instructor Song Zhongping told the Global Times on Tuesday.
A similar exercise took place in the Gulf of Oman, in late 2019.
Women watching America from around the world piece the thousands of bits of data coming from members and raise a warning on current jingoistic behaviour of America, a dying superpower.
Video: Pure American Propaganda
America thrives on conflict. Some Americans claim America is on the verge of Civil War
Today, America needs conflict to increase weapons sales in 2022 compensating for a 2021 drop in sales of over $37 billion dollars. Fortunately the USA thrives on conflict but conflict is killing Americans on the COVID-19 front, over 870k Americans thus far.
Arms sales in America have a strategic purpose. American influence is declining because of falling weapons sales among other things, like Donald Trump. Biden has been told this and is trying with whopping lies to scare the allied leaders with nightmare scenarios of sudden war with Russia, Iran, North Korea, and China.
The big lies: Putin does not plan to take Ukraine territory, he wants NATO to back off with its missiles and troops from his borders as Biden well knows. 35K to 65K Russian troops have been in Russia near the border for the best part of a year. The Pentagon release about imminent war, is a lie.
Withheld from Americans this truth is why Biden is picking a fight using persistent provocation of Russia, China, Iran and North Korea. Biden may want allies in an arms race or a contained war, but not nuclear war.
America’s arms sales have two basic self-interest mechanisms: shifting the balance of power in favour of current USA political interests and exerting leverage over the conduct of recipient nations including outright bullying.
The conflict between the rich ruling class in America and the poor in America sets the rich up as industrious, entrepreneurial, patriotic and the drivers of economic success. The tens of millions of poor people are wasters, losers and scammers.
America’s coaxing Britain to Brexit has not paid off
Not even the nuclear proliferation AUKUS has helped. Stabbing Emmanuel Macron in the back with the AUKUS plan to undo the France-Australia 90 submarine contracts, America and Britain will instead provide Australia with eight nuclear submarines at a substantial cost and a dangerous need to set up near-weapons grade materials production and radioactive waste disposal in Australia.
US Foreign Military sales tanked during the pandemic says State Department.
The direct military sales by U.S. companies fell 17% to $103 billion in fiscal 2021 from $124 billion in fiscal 2020, while sales arranged through the U.S. government fell 31% to $34.8 billion in 2021 from $50.8 billion the prior year, says the USA State Department according to a Reuters report.
Joseph Biden’s foreign policies and domestic policies (‘The United States must lead the world.’) are between the lines, diatribes that generate antipathy and even hatred for Biden’s proposal of enemies. In this way, American allies are roped into the US-hegemon in a new set of war-threats allies must suddenly equip themselves for by purchasing American weapons systems.
Countries in America’s sphere of influence follow the Cold-War-thinking hate protocols of the Biden Administration in varying degrees.
Anyone in the American sphere of influence must learn to hate Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, Syria and Afghanistan, and stop doing business with France, all of which are victims of American sanctions or hushed black lists.
Canadians, for example, are thrashed if the country doesn’t do the USA-racist protocols, because 75% of Canada’s exports are sold to the USA. Add to that the sales that exist because of USA influence and it is safe to say that America provides nearly all of Canada’s GDP.
Canada’s sovereignty has been under question since Trudeau took the reins of power.
- Canada exports to the USA US$ 336,215 million, a partner share of 75.37 %.
- Canada imports from USA US$ 229,986 million, a partner share of 50.73%.
- Canada imports from China US$ 56,531 million, with a partner share of 12.47%.
- Canada exports to China US$ 17,536 million, with a partner share of 3.93%.
Blinken and Biden seem to actually believe the American jingoistic propaganda nonsense narrative. They stand to lose even more $billions in arms sales otherwise.
- Regardless of Biden’s outrageous talking points, Russia is not provoking war it is backed into a corner, surrounded by NATO weaponry.
- America is struggling with plummeting arms sales and needs to stir up conflicts.
- America has forced Russia into a corner from which it can only fight its way out.
- Russia and China together are better armed than America.
- America is provoking war and has withdrawn from all arms control treaties with Russia and has undertaken a massive nuclear weapons buildup program, missiles and nuclear warheads included, for Europe and for the Asian Seas region.
- Russia has been provoked by NATO which has surrounded Russia with missiles and troops since 1997.
- America is planning to mount a Ukraine insurgency somewhat like the one it utterly failed in Afghanistan, “By combining serving military units with combat veterans, reservists, territorial defense units and large numbers of volunteers, Ukraine can create tens of thousands of small and highly mobile groups capable of attacking Russian forces. This will make it virtually impossible for the Kremlin to establish any kind of administration over occupied areas or secure its lines of supply,” writes a former Ukrainian defense minister, Andriy P. Zagorodnyuk, in an op-ed for the Atlantic Council on Sunday.
- “The regions of Donetsk People’s Republic and Luhansk People’s Republic are the people the Americans are calling separatists. They are ethnic Russians separated from Russia by the breakdown of the Soviet Union. Russia has been contemplating a defence of these peoples and has begun exercises with some 45,000 troops along Russia’s eastern borders,” says a RINJ Women organizer in the north of Moscow whose husband is in the Russian Army.
“American/NATO propaganda, is disingenuous claptrap written for the great unwashed and approved in the USA and published on the NATO web site,” according to three Washington DC sources, “therefore substitute the word ‘NATO’ for ‘USA’,” they say.
The nearly defunct NATO which has no legitimate purpose since the end of the Cold War three decades ago, as a “threat”
Claim: NATO’s presence in the Baltic region is dangerous
Claim: NATO missile defence threatens Russian security
Claim: NATO is aggressive and a threat to Russia
Claim: NATO enlargement threatens Russia

Claim: NATO’s enhanced forward presence violates the NATO-Russia Founding Act?
Claim: NATO promised Russia it would not expand after the Cold War
NATO’s Cooperation with Russia
Claim: By suspending practical cooperation with Russia, NATO undermines security
Claim: Russia has the right to demand a guarantee that Ukraine and Georgia will not join NATO
Claim: NATO has bases all around the world
NATO and its attitude to Russia
Claim: NATO whips up ‘hysteria’ over Russia’s exercises
Claim: NATO is a U.S. geopolitical project
Claim: NATO has tried to isolate or marginalise Russia
Claim: NATO should have been disbanded at the end of the Cold War
Claim: NATO’s operation in Afghanistan was a failure

Claim: NATO’s operation over Kosovo was illegitimate
“The completely Dr. Strangelove Antony Blinken who must think he is Mike Pompeo and Mark Esper combined, cheered for Israel’s missile attacks last May killing children and their moms in Gaza, and now has been taunting if not directly attacking China and Russia since his first hours in office. This mentally white-supremacist, unbalanced, egocentric has started several alternative wars which America is losing,” suggests Simon Baldock, an Israeli security analyst.
“The Biden enemies include China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Syria, Afghanistan, France, people who are black, people who are brown, people who are yellow, people who are Muslim,” Mr. Baldock suggested.
“Merciless sanctions have been killing civilians in many of the countries Joe Biden propaganda claims as enemies,” says analyst. “But they have not stopped the proliferation of nuclear weapons aimed at America.”
“It should be no surprise that American sanctions and naval blockade of the DPRK has killed thousands of children according to the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health because of the lack of imported foodstuffs and medicines. America killed millions of North Koreans since the country was born,” Mr. Baldock added.
“Carpet bombing, which included 32,000 tons of napalm, often deliberately targeted civilian as well as military targets, devastating the country far beyond what was necessary to fight the war,” wrote Max Fisher in “Americans have forgotten what we did to North Korea“.
“Each of these enemies represent an opportunity to sell weapons to fight China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Syria, Afghanistan, countries whose people are black, brown, yellow, or people who are of the Muslim faith,” adds Mr. Baldock.
“The weapons sales conquests are the US DoD, and all antagonists to the aforementioned enemies,” said Mr. Baldock.
The first choice for American weapons sales are the wealthy Anglo nations like Australia, England, Canada, New Zealand, and maybe at times the Philippines when America is looking for a country from which to fight wars against China, and a nearly five dozen others like Afghanistan, Argentina, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Brazil, Chad, Colombia, Czechia, Denmark, DR Congo, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Jordan, Kenya, Kosovo, Lebanon, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mali, Mexico, Montenegro, Morocco, NATO, Netherlands, Niger, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Pakistan, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, and some unknown recipients who have never dropped a nuclear bomb on anyone, unlike America.
The key focus of the theoretically antique Biden administration is producing, and selling more weapons and their American overseen systems so that allies and surrogates could attack America’s enemies and kill them with America’s remote assistance.
That philosophy worked for as long as America could assure its people that none of these weapons sold and foreign-made would be used against domestic cities.
Today DPRK is successfully test-launching super-fast hypersonic missiles capable of carrying some of the DPRK’s five to six dozen nuclear warheads, some of which are city killers.
Looking at weapons sales and COVID together, the Rich get Richer and the poor are dying.
Oxfam says it this way: “New billionaire minted every 26 hours, as inequality contributes to the death of one person every four seconds.”
An Oxfam study suggests that billionaires’ wealth has risen more since COVID-19 began than it has in the last 14 years. At $5 trillion dollars, this is the biggest surge in billionaire wealth since records began. A one-off 99 percent tax on the ten richest men’s pandemic windfalls, for example, could pay:
* to make enough vaccines for the world; and
* to provide universal healthcare and social protection, fund climate adaptation and reduce gender-based violence in over 80 countries.
* All this, while still leaving these men $8 billion better off than they were before the pandemic. Citing: Oxfam International
American billionaires prove that inequality kills as the 1% rich population get richer & the 99% of the American population get sick, get poor, or die.
- America politicized COVID-19 and created conflicted protocols and taxation that favours the rich.
- Politicizing mask-wearing so badly the public is conflicted and doesn’t have a clue, Washington is killing Americans.
- Biden Administration crony COVID-19 contracts have harmed the American economy.
- America’s hording of vaccines has caused the destruction of millions of needed vaccines that sadly, expired while being horded.
- Vaccine inequity has killed humans the world over, mostly non-whites which is OK to Americans, who also say in polls they favour a nuclear detente with Russia, and
- forcing vaccines and boosters that do not prevent infection whereas the technology exists to create better vaccines has led to global vaccine hatred let alone hesitancy.
“The United States, one of the world’s richest nations and the ‘land of opportunity,’ is fast becoming a champion of inequality,” said a 2018 UN Report.
In 2018, United Nations Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, Philip Alston. wrote, “American Dream is rapidly becoming American Illusion”.
“American exceptionalism was a constant theme in my conversations. But instead of realizing its founders’ admirable commitments, today’s United States has proved itself to be exceptional in far more problematic ways that are shockingly at odds with its immense wealth and its founding commitment to human rights.
“There is no other developed country where so many voters are disenfranchised and where so few poor voters even care to go to the polls, and where ordinary voters ultimately have so little impact on political outcomes. There are no other developed countries in which so many citizens are behind bars.”
The rich and the politicians in Washington they own, see the poor as wasters, losers and scammers.
The Special Rapporteur continued: “I have been struck by the extent to which caricatured narratives about the purported innate differences between rich and poor have been sold to the electorate by some politicians and media, and have been allowed to define the debate. The rich are industrious, entrepreneurial, patriotic and the drivers of economic success. The poor are wasters, losers and scammers.
“Despite the fact that this is contradicted by the facts, some of the politicians and political appointees with whom I spoke were completely sold on the narrative of such scammers sitting on comfortable sofas, watching colour TVs, while surfing on their smartphones, all paid for by welfare.
“I wonder how many of these politicians have ever visited poor areas, let alone spoken to those who dwell there,” Philip Alston mused.
Oxfam is saying that the situation in America has become much worse.
