"Apathy is the glove into which evil slips its hand"
~ Henry Kissinger
Which brings us to our business which is essentially War, Drone assassinations, Regime change and Weapon sales as part of an out-of-control Military/Industrial/Congressional complex ~ all operating under the cloak of American exceptionalism.
WSWS elaborates; "Thirteen years after the invasion of Iraq, which resulted in the deaths of at least a million people, some 4.4 million Iraqis are internally displaced, with over a quarter million forced to flee the country. Questions of foreign policy are not decided, much less deliberated, within the framework of elections. Nowhere in the 2016 presidential race is there a serious debate, for instance, on the character of the US alliance with Turkey or the consequences of launching a de facto NATO invasion of Syria. Congress holds no hearings or votes. It neither seeks nor desires to play a serious role."
The only anti-war peace candidate still standing is Jill Stein who most likely will be denied a place at the Presidential debates and is now marginalized to a lone voice in the impending political darkness. Note in 1988, Democrats and Republicans teamed up to create a corporation called the Commission on Presidential Debates. They set out to deceive Americans by using an official-sounding word like “commission” in their name. The League of Women Voters immediately withdrew its sponsorship of the presidential debates because the demands of the establishment parties would ~ in its own words ~ “perpetrate a fraud on the American voter."
We are obviously almost beyond the moral point of no return as WSWS explains; "The launching of a NATO invasion of the Syrian war zone brings ever closer a direct clash with nuclear-armed Russia, which is militarily supporting the Damascus regime ~ Nobody should believe that the criminal cabal that runs US foreign policy will proceed with any more deliberation or caution in launching a war whose body count will be in the hundreds of millions, if not billions, than it does in plotting wars in which “mere” millions of lives are squandered."
