I HIGHLY RECOMMEND William Blum’s massive chronicle KILLING HOPE where he documents U.S. post-WWII ANTI-DEMOCRACY policies of wars (overt & covert), coups & installation of military dictatorships. It should be REQUIRED READING for every American–or at least, every one who calls themselves :liberal:” or “progressive”. Once you see the PATTERN of DECADES-long militarism and deliberate assault on democracy movements through U.S> trained/armed DEATH SQUADS & TORTURERS (at FT,. BENNING, GA), the propping up of dictators who rob & murder their own people and the EMPIRE-building through such U.S. puppets—you will NEVER buy the BIPARTISAN LIES used by BOTH Democrats & republicans to get Americans to support the latest U.S. war. WILLIAM BLUM: Rest In Power!
Thank you, Lydia.
“Bill was a record keeper, & we need that.” Well said Mr Stone. The cruel cynicism of the US “establishment” is epic. The trouble with ‘moral majorities’ is their inevitable hubris. Forget about pointing the finger left, right and centre; every single tyranny on Earth actually emulates the worst aspects of what the US has to offer or applauds, and aspires to exceed those iniquities.
Having the courage to speak honestly is a rare virtue. The cringing mendacity and loathsome hypocrisies of those who cannot even come close to any justifiable comparison with someone of the moral stature of William Blum, are simply sickening, repulsive and shameful.
One day we will have a World Court of Justice, worthy of the name.
Really appreciated his Anti-Empire Reports. A great loss. HE WILL BE MISSED!
Thank you, Amy.
Bill Blum’s important legacy will certainly live on. He was an extraordinary citizen of the world and we were pleased to honor his important antiwar contributions in our publication the US Peace Registry. His courage and tenacity will long be remembered. His selfless antiwar work is documented at http://www.uspeacememorial.org/Registry.htm.
Thank you, Michael.
What a loss! RIP. May others follow in your footsteps.
Thank you, Soraya.
