US/NATO Preparing for War on Russia? Six Military Exercises at Russia’s Doorstep

From inception, the US has been addicted to war, glorifying it deceptively in the name of peace.

In 1982, founder of the Pentagon’s nuclear navy Admiral Hyman Rickover explained the risks to Congress in the age of super-weapons able to end life on earth if used in enough numbers, saying the following:

“The lesson of history is when a war starts every nation will ultimately use whatever weapons it has available” to win, adding:

“I think the human race is going to wreck itself, and it is important that we get control of this horrible force and try to eliminate it.”

Rickover regretted his role in what became a nuclear arms race.

“I would sink…all” US nuclear powered ships, he said. “I am not proud of the part I played in” their development.

“That’s why I am such a great exponent of stopping this whole nonsense of war.”

Bertrand Russell noted the risk, saying:

“Shall we put an end to the human race, or shall mankind renounce war.” It’s the only way to live in peace. The alternative risks annihilation.

World powers have a choice. End wars or sooner or later they’ll end us.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Many, many years ago (when I was very young), there was a commentator on KABC radio named Michael Jackson (not the singer/dancer guy.)

And I remember him very fondly for saying, that if intelligent extraterrestrial life existed, it would never stop here on earth, because the major activity of its inhabitants was still... tribal warfare.

Unfortunately, the man was absolutely bang spot-on; there is still a part of the human psyche in love with the allure of war, and its being able to create so much death and devastation through its use.
