Former NATO Commander Disguises War Propaganda as Novel

ed ba690 bkrv20 jv 20210414192222

On March 9, 2021, the former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO, Admiral James Stavridis, co-authored a fiction novel with Elliott Ackerman, another former U.S. military officer. The book, entitled 2034: A Novel of the Next World War, imagines a kinetic war between the United States and China. Given the pedigree of its authorship, the novel provides a compelling window into the psychology of NATO’s military leadership and, correspondingly, the foreign policy establishment behind it. To those familiar with said psychology, the events of the novel will not be surprising. It begins with a...

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...

coi251

On COI #251, Kyle Anzalone and Connor Freeman break down the latest Iran deal news, Senator Rand Paul’s support for the JCPOA, the ongoing genocide in Yemen, and the war industry’s profiteering. Connor covers London settling decades old debts with Tehran, a new IAEA report on Iran’s uranium hexafluoride processing, the Ayatollah’s support for the JCPOA talks, and Ned Price’s attempts to dampen optimism on the agreement’s seemingly “imminent” finalization.

After Ukraine, Is Taiwan Next?

taiwan volksrepublik china.svg

While the western world busts its own fingers googling the location of Ukraine, many newly-minted Ukrainian partisans have loudly predicted that China will capitalize on the crisis to finally invade Taiwan. Indeed, the day the Russian military began its so-called “Special Military Operation” in Ukraine, several mainstream outlets once again trotted out the tired hawkish headline: Chinese warplanes violated Taiwanese airspace! Unfortunately, Google Maps does not display ADIZ designations, which arbitrarily assign airspace in the southeast Pacific. If it did, the western public would...

Putin’s Donbas Move Threatens U.S. Global Dominance

file 20211209 140267 1qxzte8

Russian President Vladimir Putin has agreed to recognize two break-off republics in eastern Ukraine as independent states, stoking cries of horror and condemnation from the Western keepers of the ‘rules-based international order.’ The Russian legislature passed a bill last week calling on Putin to recognize the ‘People’s Republics’ of Donetsk and Luhansk, which each declared secession from Ukraine following a U.S.-sponsored coup there in 2014. While the Kremlin initially dismissed the idea, saying the move would run afoul of ceasefire agreements struck in Minsk, the president reversed...

Macron-Putin Meeting Produces Potential Deal as Biden Continues Threats – News Roundup 2/8/2022

News Roundup from The Libertarian Institute by Kyle Anzalone

The meeting between French President Emmanuel Macron and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin has produced a potential agreement to de-escalate tensions over Ukraine, according to officials in Paris. The Financial Times reports that Putin has “moved towards de-escalating the Ukraine crisis by promising not to undertake any new ‘military initiatives’ and agreeing to withdraw thousands of Russian troops from Belarus after the completion of planned exercises.” While Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov clarified that any deal would “require agreement from France’s EU and NATO allies, first...

The Usual Suspects Push for War With Russia

636481508359354686 xxx gettyimages 159825349 master

Here we go again. Since the original Gulf War in 1991, a certain pattern has emerged. Every few years, the regime in Washington attempts to whip the American people into a frenzy so as to support the latest American invasion “necessary” for regime change, “spreading democracy,” or some other agenda item. It worked with Iraq in 1991, with Serbia in the late 1990s, and with Iraq again in 2003. It worked in Libya in 2011. They tried it again in 2013, but Americans showed so little interest in the floated Syria invasion that the move was eventually rejected by the White House. The American...
