Why The Neutralist? The term Isolationist implies a narrow Fortress America outlook and is used as an epithet. The term Neutralist does not indicate someone hiding out from the world. No one calls the Swiss isolationists. The Wilsonian world view is old, tired and wrong. Our interventions have been less and less successful and now the failure can no longer be covered up.

Covert Action Magazine...Where have you been all my life

 At Antiwar.com, I noticed an article, Abolish the CIA John Kiriakou on the agency’s nefarious missions. Clicking on the link, took one to his article at Covert Action Magazine.

I had seen Covert Action Magazine articles before, but just read the piece and linked or moved on.

This morning, even though having much to do, I spent too much time checking out the website. The great enemy of life is time and it would have been lovely to have spent the whole day at CAM, but I’ll be back. 

Meanwhile, if so inclined, Covert Action Magazine the place to go.

Stephen Walt reflects on U.S. stupid

 Harvard Professor Stephen M. Walt has a column at Foreign Policy with the title The United States Couldn't Stop Being Stupid If It Wanted To.

There is a subtitle, For Washington, self-imposed restraint will always be a contradiction in terms.

Well, yes.

Just this little tidbit is worth it, 

Remeber the Kuwaiti Incubator Hoax? Bought and paid for by a foreign government and abetted by a U.S. public relations firm.

Now, we wouldn't be posting this except, his article is an argument for attaining a neutralist ethos in foreign policy, even if he does not realize it.

The Yemen war is heartless, stupid, and cruel. Some congress members have a resolution to stop it.

 Of late, Bernie Sanders has seemed to be a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democrat establishment.

So, it was a bit surprising when he, according to an Dave DeCamp antiwar.com article told The Intercept on Monday that he could bring a Yemen War Powers Resolution to the floor of the Senate for a vote “hopefully next week.”

Putting aside the silly use of "hopefully," it is a welcome development why Sen. Sanders is do it, we applaud him,

Not sure if this is happening because the Saudis are dancing away from our relationship with them, but we hope it passes no matter the impetus.

 Dave put this also in the article:

 Call 1-833-Stop-War to tell your senator to support the legislation, which would end US support for the Saudi war and blockade on Yemen

 Great idea.

Jamie Raskin, war democrat.

 Excellent discussion and exposure of Jamie Raskin's pro-war stance at the Grayzone.

It is par for the course. My own congressperson claims to be anti-war yet also supports intervention.

Worth listening to.

George Will blathers about Putin with the worst of them

Wicked Shockah, George Will does not like Putin. Yeah, like you're going to lose a gig for going after the Russian leader. Remember how he got Iraq right? No, he was goofy then, he is goofy now.

Anyway, linked below is my article on how silly the George Will WAPO column is. the man compares Mussolini and Putin.  The comparison is ridiculous.


George Will speaks ex-cathedra at WAPO-Actually, he just mails it in.

Neutralism in another country has to deal with being out of favour with the cool kids

In our substack, The Long Hill Institute, we have written a piece about how neutralist policy is being subtly and not so subtly shunted aside in Ireland.

Neutrality had served Ireland well. Her youth would not be cast up to and slaughtered in a war not their own in the 1940s.

Now, spurious arguments are being put forward why neutralism is passé.

We disagree.

The substack looks at a country not abandoning neutralism. Professor Pascal Lottaz writes about Austria, which was able to free itself from foreign powers via neutralism and is not throwing it over as Finland is.

There is also Pascal's YouTube interview with Prof. Dr. Heinz Gärtner about Austria and the value of credible neutralism.

The Compendium of Post-Soviet American Hegemonic Policy that Twitter does not want you to see.

Eric Zuesse has written an article that lists Ten Truths That Can’t Be Published Under The U.S. Regime.


The Neutralist tried to post it on Twitter and got this message:


“We can’t complete this request because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful.”


Thus, they made the case for Mr. Zuesse.

As to where the Regime begins and Twitter ends, we leave to others to study. 

We endorse the link.

War Democrats

  There is still an antiwar left, It just isn't in the halls of Congress.

War Democrats

Or the anti-war hawks.

What was Madeline Albright like? Joe Lauria remembers.


At Consortium News today we have:

The Madeleine Albright I Knew

The Consortium News editor-in-chief covered Madeleine Albright, who died on March 23, on a daily basis between 1993 and 1997 when she was the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Here are some of his recollections.

It's not a pretty picture.

Ron Paul-Common Sense on Ukraine - Another Racket of War


Ron Paul's column this week at the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity is dead on:

The Ukraine War Is a Racket.

The following paragraph tells you all you need to know.

"One group of special interests profiting massively on the war is the US military-industrial complex. Raytheon CEO Greg Hayes recently told a meeting of shareholders that, “Everything that ‘s being shipped into Ukraine today, of course, is coming out of stockpiles, either at DOD or from our NATO allies, and that’s all great news. Eventually we’ll have to replenish it and we will see a benefit to the business.”

Remember when the press was celebrating the death of the Ruble? It's back 100%

 Yup, read about it at MishTalk.

The Western Press may not always be wrong, but it is always propaganda.

Avoiding Aegospotami

 The Z Man has an interesting piece at Taki's Magazine The Last War for the Neocons .   Since the Peloponnesian War, many have considered wars between two major powers as epic life and death struggles.

The Ukrainian War is seen as this as no one with an above average IQ and some tether to reality sees it as anything but a war between the big Us and Them.

What I got out of Z's article, is what, for better or worse, I get out of most them. It wasn't worth it, and didn't have to happen.

As usual, projecting further, we could do ourselves a big favor and leave NATO and come home.

Aegospotami was the last battle of the Peloponnesian War.

We're Back

 It has been almost a year since out last post and much has changed. 

The suggestion of Mr. Lieven's post was not listened to and the war is on.

Clearly, the US media is unreliable, so we have added three links

The Grayzone

Consortium New

Gilbert Doctorow

They are better information than NPRFOXMSNBCCNNCBSABCNBCNYTWAPO.

We hope to do better posting articles, in case anyone cares.
