Recent history and my beliefs on it in brief
  • The drugs war is an immoral sham that has accomplished nothing more than enriching government officials and drugs dealers. Drugs should be decriminalised.
  • Abraham Lincoln waged war on the Confederacy for the purpose not of freeing the slaves but of preserving the Union.
  • US intervention in World War I constituted a horrible waste of American life. It did not accomplish its purported goal of making the world safe for democracy and ending all future wars and actually contributed to the rise of Lenin and Hitler.
  • Franklin Roosevelt intentionally lied to the American people when he said that he was doing his best to keep America out of World War II.
  • US officials during World War II intentionally delivered East Germany and Eastern Europe into the clutches of the Soviet communists.
  • Lyndon Johnson ... intentionally lied about the supposed attack on US forces in the Gulf of Tonkin.
  • The US government’s interventionist foreign policy in the Middle East gave rise to the 9/11 attacks.
  • Given that Iraq never attacked the United States, Mr Bush’s minders’ war on Iraq constitutes a ‘war of aggression’, a type of war that was punished as a war crime by the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal.
