Oh, the native Americans are not surprised. Via NATO where the US pretty much controls policy says:
“The Heads of State and Government that participated in the NATO summit in Warsaw Poland on 8-9 July 2016 issued a series of documents and statements, including a Summit Communiqué and the Warsaw Declaration on Transatlantic Security.”
Whereas the majority of countries worldwide are ready to end the danger posed by nuclear weapons and to start negotiations for a treaty banning nuclear weapons, both NATO documents reaffirmed the NATO commitment to nuclear weapons, and the Communiqué included a return to cold war style language on nuclear sharing”
But this contradicts our signing a START treaty with Russia our using the Non-Proliferation Treaty to justify squeezing Iran, and our previous invasion of Iraq to eliminate their non existent weapons of mass destruction.
HIllary’s guy, Tim Kaine was one of 14 Senators who signed a letter, dated July 8, to Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter, calling on the Department of Defense to reaffirm its commitment to modernization of all three legs of the “strategic triad” – the land and submarine-based missiles and aircraft that deliver nuclear warheads and bombs.
In his speech yesterday, accepting his nomination as Hillary Clinton’s Vice-Presidential candidate, he said: “Trump is saying he’d leave our allies at the mercy of an increasingly aggressive Russia, and folks, that’s an open invitation to Putin to just roll on in.” (washingtonexaminer.com/clinton-unleashes-attack-dog-kaine-on-trump/article/2597478) This was after talking about his son, a Marine’s, imminent deployment to Europe. (I haven’t been able to find a transcript of the full speech, though video of the speech is posted on YouTube.)
All this is further proof that Hillary supports the NATO press eastward, the propaganda that Putin is aggressive in wanting to protect the historic borders of Russian influence, and that nuclear disarmament and international law take second place to US hegemony and military industrial NRA profits. We have been snookered into a position where those who operate out of this distorted and unjust analysis and foreign policy “must” be supported or we get Drumpf and outright fascism (rather than veiled versions).
