Lew Rockwell Was Right About China

18 fb yelew 1200x630

Over the last year, I have focused much of my work on opposing the New Cold War with Russia and China—particularly with China. In a recent piece, “‘No One is Calling for War with China,’” I tackled a claim that I’ve been hearing recently. I understand the argument to go like this: “advocating tougher China policy is not advocating war against China.” In a very literal sense, this argument is correct. Those who advocate tougher China policy are not literally suggesting war with China. But even real dyed-in-the-wool China hawks aren't demanding war. So, if not literally calling for war is...

The ‘Threat’ of the Big Bad Bear

illustration soviet bear vector 135393777

At the height of the late Cold War period, Andrew Cockburn wrote The Threat, a book that explored the bear cave of assumed Soviet military dominance. Challenging the narrative of Soviet supremacy—the belief that the Red Bear not only had greater numbers in their favor but also technological marvels that were capable of ensuring swift victory in time of war—Cockburn exposed myths that had been invented: a perceived supremacy that helped justify NATO, the Pentagon’s spending sprees, and a military-industrial complicated nation state that continues to grow long after the Berlin Wall fell and...

Biden Admits His Own Sanctions on Russia Won’t Work

President Biden on Thursday made two big admissions about the US-led economic sanctions on Russia. The first is that the sanctions will lead to food shortages for many countries other than Russia, and that this is simply the price that Americans ought to be forced to pay. The second admission was that sanctions haven't worked to change Moscow's policies, and that "sanctions never deter" the targeted regime from carrying out aggression. So, Biden has helpfully now explained this week not only that sanctions haven't actually deterred Moscow, but that the people of the United States ought to...
