On the outside looking in...

"The United Nations is beyond reform... It has to be reinvented"

Sounds good, let's try that here in the US. Our government has become broken & corrupted.

This interview from Democracy Now with the former UN General Assembly President Miguel d'Escoto is very telling. We need to be more aware.

This comment by Father d'Escoto is sad but true and very humiliating..
"Within the Security Council, there are five countries that have veto power. But without a doubt, the most influential country in the United Nations is the United States. And it’s really, really amazing the most warmongering country in the history of mankind is put there in charge to make sure that there is peace. "

Now here we have transparency, the neocon mutherfukers that stand before you beating their chests, proclaiming their patriotism, repeating words that are used to generate fear such as 'the War on Terror' or '9/11'. Lying ass criminal opportunistic corporate politicians, you've seen them, you've heard them, you should know them and we should remove them from positions of power.
These warmongering politicians are the problem!

We cannot afford to be so 'cavalier' in regards to our foreign policy. We must be more aware of how the world views our invasive and aggressive actions. Intelligence agencies tell us that we are subject to 'blowback' from others that suffer as a result of our invasions and occupations.
No shit?

Our government is controlled by corporate interests, that is no secret. Eisenhower warned us of the threat from a military industrial complex but I'm not sure if he also realized a threat from big oil, coal companies, big banks, health insurance companies and agriculture conglomerates. Across the board a total disregard for healthy people, a clean sustainable environment and the economy. Everything sacrificed at the alter of blatant glutinous greed.
Ironic that the lack of ethics & morality displayed is in search of a dollar, a dollar that ain't worth the paper it's printed on because of a federal banking system fraught with collusion & fraud.
