War on Russia?

 

By Alberto Pupo

War is brewing in Russia. Is it time to call the world police? Has the time come for the United States to once again become embroiled in another conflict, one that is a relic from the Cold War era. With Sochi now ended it looks like Putin is gunning after the Ukraine. Meanwhile the hawks in Congress are remembering the glory days of fightingf Mother 1393712507000-AFP-527606986Russia, only this time we are fighting two halves of what was once an Evil Empire (brought to you by Ronald Reagan). The question is now beginning to pop up. Where is America? Where is the shock and awe that we are used to? Is Obama afraid of the great bear wrestler Putin? Should he make a move and sink us all into a nuclear wasteland? The pundits question and the people silently recoil in nausea at the thought Continue reading

Let the Games Begin!

 


By Alberto Pupo

Let the games begin! The Sochi Winter Olympics are underway and with these games so come a nice heavy dose of Anti-Russian rhetoric and “hang Putin mentality”. Yes Mr. Putin is no saint, as his brutal anti-Gay and Lesbian Laws are horrid, and ancient. However the neo hated of Russia is something that has been building in America for the last decade or so (guess we miss the Old Evil Empire!). With the arrival of Sochi the cropped-sochi_2014_mountainsCorporate American Media can get back to what it does best good ole Soviet Commie hated! (Talk about a throwback Thursday).

The Sochi Olympics have been a controversy since they were announced. Coast to Coast, Americans feel betrayed that such an honorable tradition will be taking place in Continue reading

By Alberto Pupo

As America prepare for Iraq the sequel.. er Syria. We the people have to sit back look at this travesty and watch history coming dangerously close to repeating itself. Once again ten years after the initial disaster , a decade yet apparently we as a Nation do not learn our lesson. Going into Syria is a tragic mistake, the bottom line is that nothing productive will come from involving our Nation in another war for a variety of reasons. Yes the first and most important reason is that war in itself is an aberration of human nature and does no good to any of the parties involved. Ideologically driven Pacifism aside there are a host of other reasons why America must stay out of Syria.

This is a Civil War- Yes as sad, tragic, destructive, etc as the conflict may be it is a Civil War that has been going on for years now. The dispute is between different parties with a competing vision of governance for their own country. America cannot get involved in an internal dispute. Not only is it not prudent due to a lack of understanding of the culture and internal politics of the Syrian Nation, but also because as an outsider looking in, an outside Country should not ever dictate policy and governance to any Nation,

An attack will only Kill more Innocents- Whether we want to acknowledge it or not missiles are destructive weapons. When these weapons are fired down from the Continue reading

The tables have now turned America has become that overzealous tyrant, searching desperately for its blood sacrifice. The young man’s crime? Continue reading
