Dear Friends + Interlocutors,

Respected, progressive journalist Chris Hedges takes a look at the current madness. The Russian invasion of Ukraine appears to be the ultimate payoff from Washington’s Neocon/Neoliberal foreign policy since the end of the Cold War in 1990. 

At the moment, it looks like the 9/11 2001 terrorist blowback from Washington’s Israel-first bonanza...the “Operation Iraqi Freedom” fiasco in 2003 based on non-existent WMD’s...and the 20-year war to nowhere in Afghanistan…these, among other more minor atrocities, were warm-ups. 

Is Ukraine a jackpot for Washington, or will the negative ramifications blow up in the collective face of Europe and America, and get us all killed? That is the question.
