War Machine

In 1924, German anarchist, Ernst Friedrich, published the most powerful anti-war book of the 20th Century, WAR against WAR. At a time when the media are showering us with a barrage of pro-war propaganda on the 100th anniversary of the First World War, Friedrich’s anti-war propaganda is more vital than ever.

Noam Chomsky: The Sledgehammer Worldview

War Machine

The front page of The New York Times on June 26 featured a photo of women mourning a murdered Iraqi. He is one of the innumerable victims of the ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) campaign in which the Iraqi army, armed and trained by the U.S. for many years, quickly melted away, abandoning much of Iraq to a few thousand militants, hardly a new experience in imperial history.

U.S. Military Training in Urban Assault

War MachineFor the past few years the U.S. military have been training in tactical urban assault. A few stories have surfaced describe the training as preparing for new, unfamiliar, and not yet thought up scenarios focusing on suburban and urban terrain. As the state is preparing for "asymmetric warfare" the society is further enslaved by media delusions. The U.S. military clearly thinks that impending economic collapse will cause further social unrest leading to full blown class warfare. If this happens know that urban environments will militarized over night (see: boston bombing aftermath). Here is a few news articles documenting the rise of urban assault training.

War Machine

The National Security Agency is using complex analysis of electronic surveillance, rather than human intelligence, as the primary method to locate targets for lethal drone strikes – an unreliable tactic that results in the deaths of innocent or unidentified people.

'It's Intimidating. And It's Free': Iraq War Surplus Militarizing US Police

War Machine

Weapons of occupation are coming to cities and towns across the United States after the Department of Defense handed 165 military fighting vehicles formerly used in Iraq to local law enforcement as part of a military surplus program. This transfer of military weaponry, reported in an Associated Press exclusive on Monday, will send massive mine resistant ambush protected vehicles, or MRAPS—which weigh 18 tons each and include gun turrets and bulletproof glass—to urban and rural areas, some of which don't even have the physical infrastructure to support such heavy and large vehicles.

Remembering the Maine for 115 Years (What We’re up Against)

War Machine

February 15, 1898 was a muggy Tuesday night in Havana Harbor. Some 350 crew and officers settled in on board the 24-gun battleship USS Maine.

“At 9:40 p.m., the ship's forward end abruptly lifted itself from the water,” writes author Tom Miller. “Along the pier, passersby could hear a rumbling explosion. Within seconds, another eruption—this one deafening and massive—splintered the bow, sending anything that wasn't battened down, and most that was, flying more than 200 feet into the air.”

U.S. Military: A Multi-Gender Crime Syndicate

War Machine

Mic Check: Not all equality is created equal.

Any American woman who cherishes the freedom (sic) to fight alongside her male military counterparts is -- both directly and indirectly -- signing up for and endorsing Daisy Cutters, cluster bombs, and predator drones; depleted uranium, napalm, and white phosphorus; launching cruise missiles into crowded cities, blowing up dams to deliberately flood rice paddies and starve civilians, shooting enemy soldiers after they’ve surrendered, destroying villages in order to save them, etc. etc. etc.

War Machine

On November 5th, a lawsuit filed in 2009 by antiwar activists against Army spy John Towery will go before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in Seattle, WA.

Panagacos v Towery is a landmark civil liberties case that comes at a time of increased political repression of Pacific Northwest anarchists. The lawsuit is against the Army, Navy, Air Force and countless law enforcement agencies.

Germany: War Starts Here camp

War Machine

Enemy behind window. Cover, aim, shoot. At cyberspeed, the Laser-Duel-Simulation-System informs those in combat in real time. One man down, another hits his target. One man will continue training, another will remain on the ground in the steppe of Saxony-Anhalt. The German army but also soldiers from most of Nato armed forces train at the GÜZ Altmark. They learn how to invade and occupy a village in Afghanistan, Kosovo, or – following a Nato prospect on wars to come – any old city on Earth. In 2012, construction will begin for a city of 500 buildings, with streets, an airport and a subway. This to train for urban warfare under any circumstances in neighborhoods, city centers, slums, industrial estates and shopping malls.
