“Capitalism’s need to control and consume resources is what drives most of these current war mongering activities.”
“[Johnstone] recounts in detail how the Western left betrayed its historical principles of social justice and peace and let itself be lured into approval of aggressive U.S.-NATO wars on the fallacious grounds of “human rights”.
“When a nation is guilty of military aggression, it is not those who prosecuted the war who should be honored, it is those who tried to stop it.”
