Beginning a new year in 2017 should be a happy, uplifting time, but that no longer appears to be a real possibility with the new reality of a Trump administration staffed with billionaires and militaristic neocon generals all pledged to do Israel’s bidding to whatever extreme Netanyahu might desire – and, as we have seen repeatedly, that is extreme indeed. Coupled with the newly fervent anti-Russian furor, it is no longer a 1950s delusional nightmare to contemplate outright nuclear war with Russia and/or China in the near term, not somewhere down the road. As the attached articles point out, it seems as if the U.S. has finally gone insane in its attempt to rule the world without dissent or competition. If one is not frightened by this new reality . . . well, you know the rest. Happy New Year . . . we can only hope that saner heads prevail.
