White Supremacy is Fundamental To The "WAR ON TERROR"

From the

By Amelia Lefevre and Aly Wane

In the US, the state can murder a child with impunity if that child’s skin is a certain color, as in the tragic case of Tamir Rice. This represents a kind of terrorism, and yet the US government goes abroad to fight a so-called “War on Terror,” rather than fight it here. Some have argued that the government’s war on terror is in fact a war of terror, with its Hellfire missiles raining down on wedding parties and unsuspecting civilians.

Our Terrorisms

From the

By Ed Kinane

Pundits and politicos incessantly invoke, but seldom define, “terrorism.” Like the phony “war on drugs,” the phony “war on terrorism” promotes economic interests, serves political agendas. Neither war reduces drug use or violence. Nor are they designed to.

“Terrorism” – past and present – pervades the US psyche and economy. Terrorism, so-called, and the fear thereof, blunts our minds, shrinks our hearts. This contrived national obsession gives the Pentagon and NSA/Homeland Security their ever-expanding powers. It tightens their grip. It swells their coffers.

From the

By The PNL Editorial Committee

This issue of the Peace Newsletter debunks the US’ so-called “War on Terror.” The quotation marks are purposeful. The phrase was pushed by the G.W. Bush administration after 9/11/01. It has been downplayed by the Obama administration, yet it has persisted in the public conversation about the US military presence worldwide.

Damning Leak of Drones Documents

From the

By Carol Baum

In an astonishing act of civil courage, one American just shattered an unspeakable lie….There’s never been a major leak of documents relating to the US drone program. Until now.  
– Tweeted by National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden on the release of The Drone Papers (https://theintercept.com/drone-papers).

We’re allowing this to happen. And by ‘we,’ I mean every American citizen who has access to this information now, but continues to do nothing about it.
