I Am Anti-War, Pro-peace

Libertarian activist Thomas Knapp has this article on why he is antiwar, and what he says applies to me, too.

I am not a pacifist or an “isolationist.” Just a non-interventionist. The government shouldn’t intervene in other countries’ business or their conflicts. (And the government shouldn’t intervene in its own country’s domestic business and economic affairs as well.)

Knapp writes:

Non-interventionism is the belief that regimes (or at least some particular regime or regimes) shouldn’t intervene in disputes between other regimes…
…War is organized, violent conflict between nation-state regimes. To be antiwar is to oppose such conflict, period, end of story.

And my antiwar position is, in turn, a product of my position on nation-state regimes as such. In my view, they are simply violent criminal organizations. Their disputes are of a piece with turf wars between mafia “families” or brawls between street gangs – the difference is one of degree, not kind.

Joe Biden, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, and Vladimir Putin are just Corn Pops or Tony Sopranos with bigger crews and better public relations departments.

They’re no-goodnik psychopath crooks, and my sympathies are reserved for their victims, not for their turf claims or their lame excuses for calling out their hired – or conscripted – guns.

I don’t and won’t support them. Or their wars.

And this means certainly not supporting the U.S. government’s stealing money from the workers and producers of America and redistributing it over to the Zelenskyy parasite cronies, or the U.S. government sending weapons over to Ukraine to further enrich the merchants of death Boeing, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin, etc., etc.

That does not mean supporting Russia in that current war. There’s no obligation to take sides in other countries conflicts.

By the way, I’ve linked to articles showing how the bureaucrats of the U.S. regime do not support the people of Ukraine, as U.S. bureaucrats are not pushing for diplomatic talks, and they have shown that they oppose diplomatic talks and peace. As I have said before, today’s “liberals” are warmongers, they are pro-war, they are pro-violence, anti-peace.

U.S. Foreign Wars Do Not End Well

So, we need to end the warmongering. This proxy war against Russia that the U.S. government is having via Ukraine may very well go nuclear. Why are “liberals” risking a nuclear holocaust and “TEOTWAWKI”? That’s who is in control in Washington now. “Liberals.”

And as Caitlin Johnstone’s article points out, the insane warmongers in Washington want to “help” Ukraine attack Crimea, which is considered to be Russian territory. Such a move is bound to escalate.

Not a moment too soon, a “Not One More Penny for War in Ukraine” protest will take place in Washington on February 19, according to John V. Walsh. The group arranging the protest is a “Right-Left” coalition, supposedly.

And by the way, many people in the West have been condemning Russia for its war of aggression in invading Ukraine, but what about the U.S. regime invading Iraq? As Jacob Hornberger asks in his post today. Hornberger points out that the U.S. regime and its military were the aggressors in that war, not Iraq.

Meanwhile, U.S. warmongers might be getting involved in a possible future war with China if China invades Taiwan. Not good.
