The Ghost of George W. Bush

By Alberto Pupo

Jeb Bush, has still not declared his candidacy however the sins of his brother may become a liability for his political run. Recently the Ghost of Bush past is haunting Jeb in two embarrassing events that will hurt. In one Jeb Bush in a misguided attempt to show brotherly affection openly states that like his bother he would have also thrown our Nation into a useless and expensive war. Shortly after making such a bold declarative statement tumblr_njt6wgbJHu1rhkttmo1_500he realizes that he made a mistake and tries to play it off with the ever popular “I misheard”. Jeb Bush knows that he has made a major misstep as the whole point of his campaign is to be the “other Bush” a compassionate moderate with no Neocon ambition, but this misstep would not be the end of his recent brushes with public embarrass

 

Jeb Bush knows that gaining the support of younger voters is important, however in an America were younger voters are ultimately more politically progressive, she confronts good ol Jeb and states that his brother George w. Bush created ISIS. While this may seem like the words of an uninformed youngster who does not understand the political nuances and complex foreign policy, however the misinformed youngster was not far form the truth. ISIS, is essentially an Continue reading

Endless War?

By Alberto Pupo

War…. This seems to be an ongoing part of the fabric of our Nation. America prides itself on a fierce and powerful war machine, and when there is no enemy in sight or one is nearly defeated (Al Queda for example), there is always a necessity to create a new enemy. That new enemy is what we so lovingly call ISIS. A group of young jihadists, with endless-wara blood thirsty penchant for dramatic beheadings broadcasted around the Globe via the internet. While they are but a small ragtag group their visceral violence has been enough to elicit responses from National governments (for example the Jordanian king). However in a show of restraint and surprising maturity America has not been falling for the bait that is until recently. Now after avoiding the conflict the Obama Administration in order to placate the War Machine has been proposing a war on ISIS, so now we have entered a debate on whether or not we should Continue reading

End Corporate Media Now!

By Alberto Pupo

War, blood, death, and devastation, America this what we are fed every day. The corporate media as of late has been on a roll talking about the “ISIS threat”. The latest blitz is trying to hammer the point home to the people that the threat is very real and manufacture a new coalition of the willing to engage this new found enemy. This march for war is quite tiresome. The media instead of focusing on how we can improve our Nation, is too busy focusing on the next beheading video or sensationalist bombing escapade. indexThere seems to be a concerted and coordinated effort to keep us from asking about how to improve the issues that plague us

 

 

If one were to follow the reporting from corporate media outlets one would think that the United States is in a very precarious situation. Many will believe that there is a vicious group of terrorists ready to storm and attack our shores. In order to boost the media propaganda right-wing politicians like (Lindsey Graham of South Carolina for example). Will get on the air and start to spout out apocalyptic theories. The push to an all out ground war against Continue reading

Time to let go?

 

By Alberto Pupo

So here we are again singing a familiar refrain! America is back in action in Iraq. This week airs trikes have been authorized over Iraq. The target? Cobra… er ISIS (the latest terrorist organization of the month). This time the agenda is different and has a new twist. Wheres as the original assault in Iraq was to “ spread democracy”. The latest venture offers a more human twist in “stopping genocide”. This time the motive seems to have a less selfish and imperialistic tune, yet underneath the new shiny coat the motive still 1407532785000-iraq-airstrikes-explainedunveils one basic fundamental truth, We as a Nation simply cannot stop the urge to Bomb Iraq. It seems that for all the spin the “lessons of Iraq have not been truly learned and once again we are stumbling into an abyss.

 

Iraq has been an American stomping ground since the early Nineties. For almost thirty years our nation has been embroiled in some form of active conflict against this nation. Sadly the truth is that Iraq is a helpless situation. It was a Nation invented by the British empire as they combined and mashed up individuals of different cultures, religions and ethnicities and randomly mixed into a Continue reading

Back to Iraq?

By Alberto Pupo

Back to Iraq? Like a bad flashback it seems that there is widespread sectarian violence on the rise. Upon hearing of this the Neo Cons are salivating at the thought of another war. A chance to redeem themselves for the absolute waste of human life and finances. The American people for the last decade have been trying to move away from this quagmire. b2ilogoWhy is there this sudden rise of violence in Iraq? Is this an unhappy coincidence ? Or is there more to the sudden emergence of this “terror group” onto the scene?

The last three years has seen the American military moving away from excessive war (slightly). There has been talk about budget cuts, and reducing the size of the military. This however does not bode well for the “Lords of War”. CEOS who run the massive war machinery are fretting as their Continue reading
