  1. To the Citizens of this Planet:
    My name is Adolf Kruger, I was born on 12-25-1939. If any of You Citizens want to learn the Truth from the last 125 years, read former US President Herbert Hoover’s book, his memoirs “FREEDOM BETRAYED”. It was suppressed by the US government for 50 years. Finally published in 2014. Your Eyes will be opened.

  2. US out of Europe. Shut down Ramstein and all military bases in
    Germany. 71 years occupation is long enough.

  3. Thank you for your work. Here in Vancouver, Canada very few people even speak about the war even though Canada has military forces and industry supporting all these wars of aggression. I do what I can from my old retirement easy chair, a telephone, an email address and a local coffee shop.

  4. WHEN YOU SPEAK OF DESTRUCTION of the environment through war please include mention of the many animals that are senselessly killed in war.

  5. Thank you for your outstanding work keeping people apprised of our real history and current events. I have been volunteering with the Peace Alliance since 2003 when I was campaigning for Dennis Kucinich for President and learned about his legislation for a cabinet level Department of Peace. I continue to believe that this is a concrete move to change our violent culture. Campaigns for similar structures within government are active in more than 50 countries. In California a group of us were able to educate the CDP who following 3 years of intensive education endorse the legislation HR1111 now introduced by Rep. Barbara Lee and renamed Dept of Peacebuilding.
    I do hope you’ll read it – it will blow your minds because the strategies for peace make sense.
    Rep Lee will be introducing the bill again next week hopefully to keep the HR # 1111 ( so our campaign doesn’t have the expense of changing all our literature) We have been working hard nationally to lobby Congressional Rresentatives to be original co sponsors of this life saving cost saving department. The saving comes from reduction in violence containment, including mistaken need for court and imprisonment.The legislation will probably be dropped next Monday
    Please get in touch with your member of Congress and ask them to co sponsor so we can begin creating a culture of peace and nonviolence. We cannot expect to export peace if we don’t have it at home so this is a nonpartisan effort.
    We have never needed this legislation more.

  6. …if this nation just spent a fraction of what it does on arms and war (including the “accounting errors” of the Pentagon), we could fund many of the programmes Mr Sander’s proposed during his campaign.

  7. Think of all the wonderful things we could do if we redirected money spent on war to building a world of peace, friendship and greater equality.

  8. War is like cancer, it kills its host by the very means it kills itself.
    “I hate war for its consequences, for the lies it lives on and propagates, for the undying hatreds it arouses, for the dictatorships it puts in the place of democracies, and for the starvation that stalks after it. I hate war, and never again will I sanction or support another.”

  9. those who use the bible to weaponise the bible for all they hate this is also on the statue of liberty and is a verse from the bible of what god said to do. not to build a wall to keep them out and only let the good rich whites in..
    “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

  10. Memo reminder to all 7+ billion of the human race:
    Live life by the golden rule, “Treat others as you want to be treated.”

  11. Have you set up an office or affiliate in Moscow yet? Now would be a great time to do so. Let the world see how brave your organizers truly are in face of a true police state. It would be an inspiration to the world.
