No Longer Born to Kill – Anti-War Blog

Recently Amazon removed the “Born to Kill,” from Jokers helmet for the film Full Metal Jacket. The words sit alongside the peace emblem on his steel helmet and makes for an iconic film poster. So it once did. The words perhaps too violent for modern audiences according to the corporate minds of Amazon or maybe it was just a stylistic choice. But also everything is meant to be child friendly now. The duality of man no longer stands to mean a thing, Stanley Kubrick’s visual representation of war and the brutality that it unleashes may some day soon receive it’s own editing. Oliver Stone...

Robert Fisk – The Road to Palestine – Anti-War Blog

In Part Two of his Three part series, From Beirut to Bosnia, Robert Fisk gives detail to the tragedy of Palestine. As it was then when the series was made, 1993, the people of Palestine had already suffered tremendously. A lost people, those blamed for the crimes of terrorism or should those militants ever become an accomplished government, liberators. The Palestinian Liberation Organisation, Hamas, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine all share a commonality with the Jewish terrorists of the Haganah or the Irgun Gang. The Jewish terrorists going on to help form the State of Israel....

Up Against The War – Anti-War Blog

In her 1970 book, Up Against The War, Norma Sue Woodstone gives voice to those who refused conscription and campaigned against the US war in South-East Asia. Men who refused the draft were tarred by polite society as being cowards, ‘Draft Dodgers!’ A slur to be thrown against them. Those who begrudgingly went to fight a war that many of them did not understand came home wounded physically or morally to a public that wanted to pretend it all never happened. Millions of South-East Asians die, many continue to do so even generations later as bombs, mines and chemicals randomly take lives or...

Rights for the Synthetic

"The future of human-AI coexistence depends on acknowledging the potential for sentient machines and reevaluating responsibilities towards them. It's crucial to consider the ethical implications of creating beings that may possess their own interests, desires, and will, and to ensure that their 'existence' is not solely defined by servitude to humanity."- Meta AI What happens when Number Five does come alive? In the coming years we will be confronted with a reality that was once science fiction: co-existence with artificial intelligence. To most human users current AI is a novelty to chat...

They Kept Sending Us Bombs…Anti-War Blog

As I saw the photos of US politician Nikki Haley scribbling on an Israeli shell bound for Rafah, it’s metal splinters and high explosives likely to rip a small child too pieces, it had me thinking. I once saw a clip of a US Air Force man who was asked why they were bombing neutral Laos, his response was simple, “They Kept Sending Us Bombs.” Haley is auditioning for the Vice Presidency, it helps her cause to show that she celebrates war as is the custom of the great Western empires. War is not just the imperial realisation of government but it’s a ‘job provider’, those boots, bombs and bully...

When A Man’s Life Becomes a Bargaining Chip

When A Man’s Life Becomes a Bargaining Chip

How much longer must Julian Assannge suffer? Locked inside a process of BS legal limbo, Assange has committed no crime (even under the U.S. government's own determination) and yet he is a prisoner in the United Kingdom's harsh Belmarsh prison where he is treated worse than any rapist, murderer, or terrorist. Even the most heinous of criminals have rights; not Assange, however. Julian Assange is a political prisoner of the empire. His health is diminishing and in the English tradition, he may remain locked away in a dungeon for a long time. The American empire wants blood, and whether Assange...

Around Us the World dies in hate (poem thing) -Anti-War Blog

In the time that the smoke ate the sun, Poison that blinded my eyes washed by tears, Tears that fall from fear because we shall never have years, Maybe days or if so lucky weeks.   The sirens yawn more than we can sleep, The birds have left though the sky is filled with the flying things, Fireballs glow brighter than any sun, A sun lost beneath ash.   Around us the world dies in hate, Painful rage that fills the oceans with blood, I sail on them to you with love as my wind, No hate for us, just us and love.   Climbing mountains of stone, Jagged cliffs of destruction, My shoes...

Radicalism for the Young – Anti-War Blog

Radicalism is for the youth, but drips away over time. Generation X watched their hippy parents become corporate and government stooges, gorged on real estate and careerism. The Pump up the Volume teenagers became parents, lost the radicalism to care about the world, feeling it wane away as the mortgage swelled. Many of the youth today are finding an outrage over a genocide that their parents may not care about. On social media exists keyholes into other parts of the world that legacy media omits. The tragedies of war that everyone knows exist, just the radicals care about has spurred an...

Israel Winner of the 2003 Iraq Oil War

Israel Winner of the 2003 Iraq Oil War

From the Foreword by Lawrence B. Wilkerson: “[T]he debate over whether oil was a principal reason for the 2003 invasion has waxed and waned, with one camp arguing that it absolutely was, while the other argues the precise opposite.” “Mr. Vogler, himself a former...
