When the U.S. pushed occupied Europe into Nato to help stop Russian expansion from E. Europe, Senator Robert Taft warned that it should be ONLY until Europe recovered and could defend themselves, especially Germany which the U.S. and Britain bombed into the stone age and insisted on unconditional surrender rather than letting the General Staff get rid of Hitler and make peace with enough forces to keep the Russkies out. NATO is now an imperial U.S. puppet and Rasmussen, the head of Nato, is the only warmongering Dane since Hamlet’s step father! I have argued for years NATO is an atrocity, not a peace keeper.
I’m 77 and was born in Miami in 1937, very Southern on my father’s side, but my mother and her large family were all English-Canadians from Hull, England, and Hamilton, Ont. I think most Canadians, like most UN nations, are being forced by the U.S. to go along with these insane wars by threats of withdrawing the nuclear umbrella, by secret extortions and blackmail of leaders [because the U.S. secret police have all kinds of secret tapes and videos of rulers doing naughty things], by bribery of all forms, and by implied threats of worst, including “accidents” by third parties (sub-contracts to Murder Inc. small corps. by the off-book CIA and FBI organizations).
Canadians, Brits (especially Scots!), and Europeans are on average far better educated than Americans, far more peaceful, far more kindly, far less drugged… I know this from family but also from lots of friends who left the U.S. way back in the Vietnam War to teach in Canadian universities like Toronto and Halifax. I was even an outside member of a Ph.C. Comm, at U. of Toronto. I almost took a prof. at UBC—beautiful up there! One of my daughters and her family were just on a long vacation from Vancouver and Quadra over to Nelson, etc. Gorgeous country. And I gave talks and did research in Europe and the U.K. and have known lots of the people there.
Be of good cheer. the u.s. will probably destroy itself financially soon and we Americans will go back to our roots in freedom and brotherhood, including brotherhood with Canada for sure. It will be very hard to rebuild our nation, but i think most of the young people, certainly my children and grandchildren and lots of in-laws and young friends are able to do it and will.
And other nations will do the same, as Russia and China are doing now with fierce hard work and determination.
Certainly Canadians will go free, return to their roots and be very peaceful and friendly around the world.
Carry on, steady as you go….
