https://youtu.be/UXADj372WU0 On Sept. 1, 1939, 70 years ago, the German Army crossed the Polish frontier. On Sept. 3, Britain declared war. Six years later, 50 million Christians and Jews had perished. Britain was broken and bankrupt, Germany a smoldering ruin. Europe had served as the site of the most murderous combat known to man, and civilians had suffered worse horrors than the soldiers. By May 1945, Red Army hordes occupied all the great capitals of Central Europe: Vienna, Prague, Budapest, Berlin. A hundred million Christians were under the heel of the most barbarous tyranny in...

COI #259: War in Ukraine Could End Too Soon for Some NATO Members

coi259

On COI #259, Kyle Anzalone and Connor Freeman cover the NATO hawks’ desire for a protracted war in Ukraine, the American people’s support for war with Russia, and the latest news on the Iran deal talks. Kyle discusses new revelations in the Washington Post that some NATO member states’ governments actually prefer to see Ukrainians “fighting, and dying, than to achieve a peace that comes too early.” There is further indication that the U.S. led, Western sanctions imposed on Russia will not be lifted even in the event of future diplomatic breakthroughs with Kiev and Moscow or if there is a...

Afghan Translator Alleges American Soldiers Tortured an Afghan Commando Before He Died

A Department of Defense investigation into the death of an Afghan commando includes evidence the man was tortured while in US custody and died hours later. Eight Green Berets received reprimands for their role in the soldier's death.  On October 22, 2018, Wahidullah Khan opened fire on three Czech soldiers, killing Cpl. Tomáš Procházka and wounding two others. Khan, an Afghan commando, was suspected of infiltrating NATO's training program and then carrying out an "insider attack." Khan was then arrested by Afghan forces and handed over to NATO - American and Czech - soldiers for...

We Must Not Repeat Cold War Errors

china the collapse of communism in the soviet union east europe qbs featured

With Russia launching a military invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, the corporate press has grown shrill in its calls for punishing Russia with draconian sanctions, supplying Ukraine with increased military aid, and diplomatically isolating the Eurasian power as much as possible. The Two Minutes Hate against Russia has been cranked up to eleven, making any nuanced analysis of why the conflict between Russia and Ukraine has reached such a point almost impossible. The failure of policy wonks to understand why Russia took decisive action against Ukraine is emblematic of a flawed grand...

The End of a Forever War? – News Roundup 2/18/2022

News Roundup from The Libertarian Institute by Kyle Anzalone

French President Emmanuel Macron announced that European troops will begin exiting Mali after nine years. Operation Barkhane – which has become known as ‘France’s Forever War’ – will wind down its ground operations over the next six months.  The decision comes after months of increasing tensions with the ruling military leadership of Mali, headed by Col. Assimi Goïta. The colonel most recently seized power during his second coup last May.  While Goïta is currently at odds with the West, he was backed by France and the US after his first successful coup in 2020. He has also participated in...

Lunatic With a Plan: Erdogan and Turkey’s Economic Woes

vladimir putin and recep tayyip erdoğan (2015 06 13) 3

Since the first assault on Turkey’s finances in 2018, which I wrote about multiple times (here, here, and here), I’ve been the lone voice telling everyone that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is a lunatic but he’s a lunatic with a plan. That plan is to de-dollarize the economy of a valuable member of NATO geostrategically. Since the first shots across the bow by the Trump administration at Erdogan’s toying with those powers east of the Bosporus (Russia, China and Iran) the Turkish lira has been the primary mode of attack against Erdogan. Erdogan has pursued what has been deemed unorthodox...

Government boundaries are not productive acquisitions, as is private property. They are almost always the result of previous aggressions and coercion by governments on both sides. We cannot assume that every existing state has the absolute right to “own” or control all the territory within its generally arbitrary borders. Murray N.
