War is dehumanizing, propaganda is a tool and part of dehumanizing a people by which any act in war will be accepted by the other side. A moral compass is way beyond what the the real world possesses. Sliding further down ...
Unfortunately, after the dropping of two atom bombs on Japan by president Truman of the US in August 1945, the world has seen too many wars which have been useless and mostly worsened hardship of the countries involved.
Need the world a reminder of the Iraq-Iran war where dictator Saddam Hussein received full backing of the powers of America. CIA intelligence reports of Iranian defenses for targeting of Iraqi missiles, some loaded with lethal chemicals.
After trench warfare in Northern France in the war of 1914-1918, mosterd gas was used and dispersed by the German forces. Graveyards as far as one can view is the local landscape in the Somme area.
The genocidal massacres of Cambodia and the Rwandan people in 1994 ... everlasting evidence of cruelty perpetrated by men. Starting a war makes you responsible for all war crimes that follow. Wars have become more cruel, not less than at the time of Napoleon at Waterloo.

An Economic `Siege' of the Islamic State of Iran | May 21, 2018 |
Persons at the U.S. State Department have always sought revenge for lives lost during the Lebanon Wars between Sunni, Shia proxy groups in conjunction with Israel. Many American citizens were taken hostage for ransom in Beirut and the greatest loss of American lives was the Beirut Marine baracks bombing during the Reagan administration.
The US retaliated by supporting Saddam Hussein during the Iraq-Iran war and turning a blind eye when massive use of chemical warfare was used. During this war Iran lost a million lives on the battle field. Iraq used US satellite intelligence to pinpoint it's destructive arsenal of weapons.
By shredding the JCPOA nuclear deal, the USA has lost all of its credibility across vast regions of the globe.
Seeking answers for Iran's chemical weapons victims--before time runs out
Three decades after Iraq unleashed chemical weapons on Iran, scientists there are unraveling the long-term effects
After the war, Iraq--pressured to own up to the attacks--acknowledged that it had "consumed" 1800 tons of mustard, 600 tons of sarin, and 140 tons of tabun. All told, according to Iran's Foundation of Martyrs and Veterans Affairs (FMVA), the chemical onslaught killed nearly 5000 Iranians and sickened more than 100,000.
That doesn't include Iraqi victims: In March 1988, Iraq's forces attacked its own citizens with mustard and nerve agents in Halabja, killing as many as 5000 and wounding 7000.
Sulfur mustard, a family of compounds first used in World War I, left the deepest and most visible scars on survivors of the war. Three decades later, about 56,000 Iranians are coping with lingering health effects from the blistering agent, ranging from skin lesions and failing corneas to chronic obstructive lung disease and possibly cancer, says Tooba Ghazanfari, an immunologist at Shahed University here.

Earliest reports from Ukraine and Bloomberg headline Aleksadr Dugin was murdered ...
In the suburbs of Moscow, Dugin's car, in which his daughter might have been, exploded - mass media
Around 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 20, 2022, a car belonging to the head of the "International Eurasian Movement", one of the main ideologues of racism and the armed invasion of Ukraine, Oleksandr Dugin, exploded and burned on the outskirts of Moscow (RF)
According to still unconfirmed data, Daria Oleksandrivna Dugina (Platonova), who is also known for her active public activity in support of Putin's regime and the destruction of Ukrainians, was in it. Dugina called herself a philosopher and journalist, gave lectures. The Russian news telegram channels Baza and 112 were the first to report what might have happened to her around 24:00.
"A Land Cruiser Prado car was blown up near the village of Velyki Vyazemy. As a result, the owner of the car died on the spot," Baza said.
Could just as easily been a Russian operation as also Kremlin has its dissidents and citizens against the war in Ukraine 🇺🇦.
Russian media are reporting that a car exploded in Moscow oblast; allegedly, Darya Dugina, Alexander Dugin's daughter, was driving and that she died on the spot. No official confirmation at this point, also no information on the cause of the explosion.
RED LINES AND DECISION-MAKING CENTERS: THE RUSSIAN RESPONSE TO THE DEATH OF DARYA DUGINA
Russian people mourn the death of a journalist, daughter of the philosopher Alexander Dugin Darya. Along with condolences to the father, they call to cross out the red lines and respond to Kyiv with strikes on decision-making centers.
Senator Andrei Klishas was one of the first to react to the death of Daria Dugina. He brought Alexander Dugin his deepest condolences and stated that the terrorists who killed his daughter must be destroyed.
Military correspondent Semyon Pegov notes that the death of Daria Dugina was a planned action by the SBU. This is not a psychopath who was just lucky, but a long and systematic work. Perhaps the attack happened not without the help of "their man" in our own security system.
Russian writer Zakhar Prilepin calls for national unity and notes that we should not forget about the death of Darya Dugina.
LATEST NEWS: At the last moment Aleksandr Dugin switched cars. Preliminary info suggests it was a contract killing, explosive device attached under car.
Dugina was a political commentator and daughter of the veteran Russian philosopher, known for his staunch anti-Western and ‘neo-Eurasian’ views.
Western media has painted Dugin as a driving force behind President Vladimir Putin’s foreign policy over the past decade.
In Russia, the supposed shadowy puppet master is largely considered to be a marginal figure. While he has served as an adviser to several politicians, Dugin never enjoyed official endorsement from the Kremlin.
The US think tank RAND Corporation wrote in 2017 that despite Western media reports of Dugin’s alleged “ties and connections” to the Russian leadership, he is “perhaps best thought of as an extremist provocateur with some limited and peripheral impact than as an influential analyst with a direct impact on policy.”
The Occult, Russian Nationalism to Geopolitics
Prokhanov’s interest in the occult began in the 1970s when as a young man he was introduced to the circle of writer Yuri Mamleev, a far-right nationalist and a founder of the “metaphysical realism” movement in Russian literature. Another member of the Mamleev club was Alexander Dugin, the son of a Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) general. Over the years, Dugin became a widely cited, influential Russian far-right ideologist and an author of dozens of books with subjects ranging from geopolitics, to Russian nationalism, to sorcery. His 1997 bestseller “The Foundations of Geopolitics” is claimed to have had a strong influence on the Russian foreign policy establishment. Some even say it is being used as a textbook at the Academy of the General Staff of the Russian military.
The book also drew attention in the West with its list of priorities for the Russian security services to be attained through a program of destabilization and disinformation. Among what Dugin sees as Russia’s first concerns is separating the UK from Europe, “absorbing” Finland, annexing Ukraine, and “dismantling” China.

By further stalemate of frontlines, leading to an escalation in use of lethal arms and missiles, the world gets closer to the last option M.A.D. — 77 years after Nagasaki and Hiroshima.
Close allies, friends even and dissidents aren’t safe in both countries involved in this devastating war. Danger comes from collaborators and traitors. Moment for expanding covert action and urban guerrilla tactics.

Re: Sadly, the revanchists have a point | Feb. 1, 2008 |
But we only have so much political capital. And we - Europe, that is - decided to squander it making Instant Capitalism(TM) and pissing on Russian dignity in the early ninties. That was as blind as it was stupid, and now the political chickens are coming home to roost. Pressing the issue when you are clearly in the wrong means that you'll be less able to press the issue when you are clearly (or not so clearly) in the right. Right now we are paying the price for our high-handedness 15 years ago and and quite frankly we have nobody and nothing to blame for that but ourselves and our own stupidity and arrogance.
I want Europe to be a responsible great power on the global stage, not a power-drunk empire that petulantly strikes out against anyone who doesn't dance to our tune. The world has entirely too many of those as it is. And part of being a responsible player on the global stage is acknowledging when you've fucked up and acknowledging that fuck-ups come with a political cost.
The truly galling part of it was that most progressives knew that Instant Capitalism(TM) and Shock Therapy were Bad Ideas. In that sense, it's not our fault, and it's eminently unfair that we have to see the fight for progressive ideals hamstrung because a gang of far-right ideologues decided to use Russia as a sandbox for those policies that were too manifestly insane for even the American public to swallow. In fact, it's desperately, wretchedly unfair. But life isn't fair, and we can't let the madmen run the asylum for a decade and then expect everyone else to forgive and forget and not hold us accountable for the actions our countries took during that period.
Friends come and go. Enemies accumulate.

EurAsianism and Russian Ultra-Nationalists United In Aleksandr Dugin | Jan. 17, 2017 |
Two representatives of the old Soviet system are Sergei Kurginyan and Aleksandr Dugin. They do not represent mainstream Russia and are quoted by right-wing American institutes to smear Russia and the policymakers in the Kremlin. The scheme by NATO to confront Russia of Putin will endanger world peace. There are no more standing armies to play out a conventional war, thus by continuing this reckless policy may ultimately lead to a clash with nuclear weapons. US Congress is a tool of right-wing extremism in the United States, lobbyists and corporate power of the billionaire oligarchs … a dangerous playground without realpolitik of an evolving world in the 21st century. US/UK failures in Middle-East military intervention has made the world a more dangerous place in the coming decade(s).
Democrats can join this foolish enterprise, or study the concept of war and peace in a unipolar world. The US can become a leader to confront the issues confronting a habitable planet or continue on a path to a Cold War 2.0 with Russia. Join Marco Rubio, John McCain, or set a new policy for the Democratic Party and path forward to solve problems, not create them.
The “progressive” centrists of the Democratic Party have jumped the shark with HRC and her followers.
Follow US Intelligence and declare Vladimir Putin insane
There is no need to negotiate … forever war.
