War Hawks on a Suicide MissionBy Harley Schlanger
The Zelensky tour of European capitals provided the opportunity to NATO leaders to increase the risk of triggering nuclear war, while impoverishing their people, by committing more resources to the war, and imposing harsher neoliberal economic policies on their people. In doing so, they are arrogantly turning their backs to a peace offensive, especially from China. Does this mean a larger war is inevitable? Listen to the speech by President John F. Kennedy, linked below, when he publicly announced a shift from the drive for war from the U.S. Cold Warriors, following the danger of nuclear confrontation over the Cuban Missile Crisis, to pursue peace, based on recognizing common interests of the people of both nations.
