Stop all the clocks by W H AudenStop all the clocks https://t.co/en2QNhWuIS A poem that came to mind the day after I realised Trump had turned neocon. #r4today— Claire Khaw (@ntfem) April 6, 2017
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.
Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead,
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.
He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last for ever: I was wrong.
The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good.
How do you fight such a thing except question the very political system that allows the US Military Industrial Complex to run all Western governments - democracy itself?
The only countries in the world that still have an independent foreign policy is China, Russia and Iran.
How much do you think the average voter cares about foreign policy?
How much do you think the average female voter (to whom all political parties pander) care about foreign policy?
We know what happened to Athens as a result of its compulsive warmongering, do we not?
We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military–industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together.
Is it too late now for Donald Trump to nationalise the Military Industrial Complex by Executive Order?
That would mean an undignified W turn.

April 4: Assad launches "chemical attack", Trump admin changes mind
Not fishy at all.
Trump 2017 needs to listen to Trump 2013. https://t.co/HUcNYV7IYB— Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet) April 6, 2017
President @realDonaldTrump, we will not support a war with Syria. You are being played by war mongers.— Mike Cernovich 🇺🇸 (@Cernovich) April 5, 2017
Dear @realDonaldTrump - you are being manipulated by the same scam they pulled in 2013. No regime change in Syria. https://t.co/AfEbjGGqAN— Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet) April 6, 2017
"The world" already intervened in 2011.— Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet) April 6, 2017
It led to ISIS, the refugee crisis and a once secular country wrecked by Islamists. https://t.co/CTufoFpuGn
The same media that sold intervention in Syria that led to the refugee crisis & ISIS now moral grandstanding yet again— Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet) April 6, 2017
Pretty fucking rich.
Intel officials (who the left now says we must believe) told Seymour Hersh 2013 chemical attack NOT done by Assad. https://t.co/dybmmEP2D9— Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet) April 6, 2017
