Last edit: Sunday, September 18, 2020: America is expanding 34 unprovoked wars about extraction, exploitation and extortion.
B. B. King - The Thrill Is Gone (Live at Montreux 1993)
America is fighting at least 34 unprovoked and avoidable corporate-American wars (economic and military aggression ranging from sanctions to contractors, mercenaries, troops and bombs) in Afghanistan, Algeria, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Central African Republic, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Cuba, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Gaza, Gulf of Guinea, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Liberia, Libya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Palestine, the Philippines, Somalia, South Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, Uganda, Ukraine, Venezuela, the West Bank, Yemen and in more than 500 indigenous nations across the Americas.
None of these nations attacked the United States.
These 34 wars enforce illegal private corporate extraction of resources, exploitation of everyday people and extortion collected from victim nations. These wars are not on the front or back pages of mainstream media, but bombs, deaths, and destruction delivered by the CIA, the Pentagon and 16 additional intelligence agencies, services, contractors and mercenaries continue.
Innocent human beings in more than 34 victim nations continue to die for no good reason.
In at least ten of these nations, American bombs destroyed homes, families and livelihoods.
Others have been brutalized by political and military attacks: economic espionage, mercenary troops,
contractors, murders and other provocations by American military and intelligence resources...
to extract resources, exploit labor or demand extortion.
This self-destructive imperialism has bankrupted America.
These unprovoked and avoidable wars include 17 wars on Africa:
This is American "colonialism" at work...
The United States and the Fortune 500 continue to
misuse American military and intelligence to
exploit labor and demand extortion from victim
nations on the African Continent.
In Algeria, Burkina Faso, Central African Republic, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Gulf of Guinea, Liberia, Libya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, Tunesia, and Uganda… undeclared and avoidable wars continue.
And America continues to fund and deliver 10 avoidable and unnecessary wars in the Middle East
These wars include:
Afghanistan, Gaza, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait,
Pakistan, Syria, Ukraine, the West Bank and Yemen.
America remains at war in
South-East Asia and in the Philippines.
The United States exports sanctions, bombs and wars closer to home in Bolivia, Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela.
American wars of aggression in Central America (for extraction, exploitation and extortion) have continued for more than 150 years. Residual effects of these wars and dictators sponsored by the United States, continue to drive people North.
The "American" (installed and supported) dictators, tyrants and kings in Central and South America are why people seek asylum. The United States has become the terror.
“At home, militarized police departments allow officers to kill unarmed citizens at will with zero accountability, two weeks paid vacations and get out of jail free cards. And our leaders export this aggression overseas with illegal drones known to kill an average of 50 innocents per strike.”
And indigenous nations in North America continue to suffer attacks and indignities by the hands of colonial invaders.
It is critical that we shut down corporate wars and reinvest in jobs with justice. We can rebuild sustainable infrastructure and restore human resources by choosing peace over war. These are the tasks at hand.
