What’s Your State’s Part in the Military Industrial Complex (MIC)

While Sister Cities have been established between Minneapolis and St. Paul and the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and Minneapolis became a Sister City with Najaf, Iraq to further mutual friendship and peace, it’s outrageous that a warship can navigate the world’s waterways literally bearing the names of our cities.

Hedges: The Greatest Evil Is War

Preemptive war, whether in Iraq or Ukraine, is a war crime. It does not matter if the war is launched on the basis of lies and fabrications, as was the case in Iraq, or because of the breaking of a series of agreements with Russia, including the promise by Washington not to extend NATO beyond the borders of a unified Germany, not to deploy thousands of NATO troops in Eastern Europe, not to meddle in the internal affairs of nations on the Russia’s border and the refusal to implement the Minsk II peace agreement.
