US State craft is driven, first, by the arrogance of power and delusions of ideological superiority, as well as by self-serving elite concerns. The US ruling interests to prevail are those of “The Blob” (the permanent foreign policy establishment), military-industrial-complex, a media also engaged in expedient myth-making, not news reporting, crooked corporate elites, and a sanctions-giddy US Congress, in which there are currently no pro-détente thinkers (nor thinkers, for that matter).—ILANA MERCER,”Neocons, Neolibs And NATO Inch Us Closer To Nuclear War With Russia,” January 29, 2022

    I heard a phrase one time on radio “perpetual wars for perpetual peace.” That describes what results from “balance of power” that has caused continuous wars in Europe; the US has assumed the responsibility. If the US would strive to overlook as much of the world as possible, we would not be in endless wars.
