    Dear the 2020 presidential candidates in USA

    As humanized person who is watching the growing danger of pollution, and reading your programs , I am requesting your commitment to both cut bloated Pentagon spending by $350 billion annually and redirect those savings to fund a Green New Deal

    In Addition I believe that USA political and financial support to Israel in its continuing occupation of Palestine is not only damaging human rights of Palestinian people, but also producing pollution through aggressive wars on Palestinian people. This means that our humanity has to be united to face pollution and aggressive wars. So i ask you to stop USA supporting to Israel. .

    These issues are of utmost importance for all presidential candidates who are running to become Commander-in-Chief. If elected, you will make critical decisions on issues related to national security and defense, budget priorities, and use of military force. Given that the U.S. military is an environmentally destructive force, these decisions must be based on concerns for national security and a moral duty to respect human life, not on the profit motive of companies that make a killing on killing.

    Funding endless war is an existential threat to human life and one of the leading causes of climate change.

    You will be in a position to dramatically redirect Pentagon spending to fund the critical work we need to do to address climate change. Committing to cut $350 billion in Pentagon funding and redirect that money to fund the Green New Deal is of utmost importance for the future of our children and a habitable planet. Pentagon spending is bloated far beyond need and it’s time to stop the waste and address environmental disaster.

    Sincerely,
    Dr. Yousef

    Exactly, the carbon bootprint is the largest and worst, “…we(e),…” must stop it. Think, 400 years of supposed science, a millisecond evolutionarily, has brought humanity to it’s extinction, destroying what it took the Cosmos 18 billion years of evolution to create, an insect damaging so much grain, an instant destroying so much grace, human race be not the Earth’s still birth. Leaving no footprints, that followed none, you, illimitable potential, indivisible as life, walking in nature’s balance, giving back to it’s abundance, can know ‘the root of all oppression lies in science", Gandhi, that you, leaving no footprints, no trace, that will echo on in all ways, always, can be alival instead of survival; will you? Any scientist who doesn’t do a full public mea culpa before posting, with each post to youth, communicating anything to ‘youth’ on the climate emergency is just a corporate structure’s convolutionary and disciple of the religion of scientism; no more than a marketeer :) reality

    i think we should also query each candidate on the increasingly ominous signs of stepped-up u.s. aggressions on venezuela and iran:
    on venezuela : do you support an end to the sanctions which have killed 40,000 people in the last 2 years ? do you oppose u.s. military intervention ?
    on iran : do you support returning to the treaty that trump renounced ? do you support an end to the sanctions on iran ?

    The doubling of the military budget subject to the 911 terrorist attack has subjected this nation to a trillion $$$$ plus annual tribute to war! This insane bleeding of our national budget for contrived and unnecessary wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, and Ukraine which equals similar war costs to WWI and WWII and is by no means sustainable! Our nation’s enslavement to war will necessitate the continued thievery of our own people’s necessities in favor of our throwing away of our nation’s budget to subject all people’s of the world to our war planners, engineers, and profiteers insane war conundrums. If these war engineers, manufacturers, and profiteers succeeded in making the world subject to our whims, do you think that war would end? For these greedy warlords, there is no success like failure and for us there is the stench and putridity of paying incessantly for failure.

    Stop giving money to the military industrial complex to start new wars after new wars after new wars! The money should be used for our infrastructure, maintaining and building bridges, universal health care, improving the education system, reducing unemployment, raising the minimum wage and many other social programs.

    It’s time to recognize and openly admit that these dis-United States of America have taken the form of an empire and it’s not representative of the people, regardless of which of the two corrupt political parties are in charge. We are overdue for a revolution to reset the course of this nation before we alienate ALL of the nations of the world. We have zero business either globalizing the world economy or setting up military bases in hundreds of foreign nations. That is nowhere is our charter. We are NOT in control of our government! Revolution is the solution!.

    Its becoming clearer with each passing day that the military is NOT under the control of any functional civilian control. It’s becoming Trump’s police force with his appointment of cronies with zero military experience but with oodles of military contracting and lobbying experience. This is as dangerous as it gets for the nation. BRING THE MILITARY BACK UNDER SOME REASONABLE AND INTELLIGENT CIVILIAN CONTROL! NOW!!

    The Pentagon is losing everywhere ….. The Pentagon is our enemy.
    Terrorism is similar to pearl production …. you get a grain of irritation and use it to create layer after layer of support, which soon feeds itself. Remove the grain of irritation (ISRAEL) and the pearl of terrorism would quit growing and melt away. How do you remove the irritation? Quit giving Israel weapons and money. Within 5 minutes Israel would “learn” to live in harmony with it’s “semitic brothers” ….
    Bin Laden allegedly quoted the following passage: “If I were president, I could stop terrorist attacks against the United States in a few days. Permanently. I would first apologize – very publicly and sincerely – to all the widows and orphans, the impoverished and the tortured, and the many millions of other victims of American imperialism. Then I would announce to every corner of the world that America’s global military interventions have come to an end.” The quote is from Blum’s 2004 book Freeing the World to Death: Essays on the American Empire,
    In 2001 there were a few hundred terrorists, mostly just barefoot illiterates with small bases in Afghanistan and Somalia with NO presence in Iraq. Now, thanks to the superior war fighting skills and knowledge of the Military Geniuses in the Pentagon there are tens of thousands with strongholds in Libya, Nigeria, Yemen, Somalia, Syria/Iraq, Afghanistan,Pakistan, etc.
    Thanks to Abu Graihb,Guantanamo, Secret Dungeons out of the Feudal Dark Ages ……… Thanks to OUR misconduct and stupidity.
    Terrorism is CRIMINAL not “warfare” and must be handled as criminal in order or it will matastise. This is proven by the complete and total failure of America’s “war on terror”
    The entire purpose of terrorism is to provoke an OVER reaction by the target …..in order to create sympathy and allies for your cause. As we have seen since 9/11 ….. they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. We have created terrorist recruits everywhere thanks to Abu Graihb, Guantanamo,torture.
    (1) Terrorism is defined as “the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims”. So terrorists exaggerate their destructive abilities in order to increase intimidation and push their aims (2) The more damage people believe that a terrorist group has inflicted, the more donations and funding they will receive from radical extremists. Specifically, radicals are more likely to fund terrorists who are “effective” in inflicting damage than those who can’t pull off murder and mayhem
    Terrorism works especially well when we have so many people with a vested interest in it’s success. Politicians, intelligence agencies and law enforcement reap far greater rewards than a meagre 72 virgins and apparently it is also for eternity. I promise you there are some very rich people now that have plenty to show for it. Every “War on (whatever)” builds profits for somebody, and that’s why those wars never end.
    The true Terrorist’s are the governments that use this shit to justify the sacrifice of YOUR rights at the alter of Politics.
    “A tactic of using violence more for psychological purposes than for physical damage and that is intended primarily to delegitimize a regime by showing it to be ineffectual or by inciting it to overreact.”
    12/30/2018 The US-led coalition has published the latest casualty figures for its airstrikes in Iraq and Syria since the start of Operation Inherent Resolve in 2014. At least 1,139 civilians have been “unintentionally” killed by coalition strikes, the statement said. The death toll, presented monthly by the US, has been repeatedly challenged by Amnesty International. The group says that the coalition was “deeply in denial” about the “large number of civilians killed and injured by [its] strikes.” GEE, why do they HATE us? What would YOU do?
    9/11 killed 3,000 people in 2001. 30,000 people committed suicide in 2001. Every self-serving politician will grandstand about terrorism. None will grandstand about suicide prevention.As part of the endless “war on terror”, Orwellian surveillance is increasingly forced on an unwilling public.
    -—————————
    When we allow government(s) (or anyone) to change definitions of words to suit themselves, we are actively allowing them to “socially engineer” the general populace. As with crime/terrorism, you’ll find that the great majority of the country has already accepted that damned near ANY federal crime can be justly prosecuted as terrorism. Hell, look at the acceptance of “secret evidence” the etiology of the word “evidence” is “out” (exposed) “to be seen”.
    -——————
    Terrorism exploits three glitches in human nature, all related to the management and perception of unusual events. The first and key among these has been observed over the last two decades by neurobiologists and behavioral scientists, who have debunked a great fallacy that has marred Western thinking since Aristotle and most acutely since the Enlightenment. That is to say that as much as we think of ourselves as rational animals, risk avoidance is not governed by reason, cognition or intellect. Rather, it comes chiefly from our emotional system.
    -————————-
    The amount of resources Bin Laden spent to move forward with his plan was nothing compared to the US response. So much money, time, freedom and even our morals has been lost in reaction for just a single event with nearly nothing to show for it.
    -—————————-
    the biggest problems with the ‘remedies’ that are supposed to prevent terrorist attacks are that they are almost the same as the terrorist acts themselves with almost the same effects as the terrorist acts themselves. the difference is no carnage (thank goodness) but real delays and inconvenience. terrorists use shoes, everyone else then has to remove shoes. it’s the same with belts, with food, with bottles of liquid, the list is endless. on top of which we now have more and more surveillance (which will never be enough for governments until it is total) and it is being used for everything now, not just to try to prevent terrorist attacks but for letting governments know everything possible every day of every persons life under the banner of trying to ‘keep us safe’, the people are now being subjected to lives where there is no privacy and no freedom, just what bin laden said would happen. in actual fact, there is no need for terrorism because we are terrorising ourselves and our own governments are doing the rest!

    The total actual military budget is about $1.2 trillion per year. It should and can be cut immediately to half that – $600 Billion. The Pentagon can close 500 of it’s bases of which there are nearly 1000 around the world. They can also start real accounting and be subject to audits like every other government Department.

    If our Representatives in Congress applied the same kind of oversight and penny-pinching to the war budget that they do to social programs, $600 billion in cuts would just be an aperitif.

    Of course, the real issue here are the massive and historically unprecedented BRIBES that our country is awash in. There is no question that the US is the most corrupt nation in the history of the planet. Until lobbying and bribing is made strictly illegal or all politicians voluntarily refuse to accept bribes, the US will continue it’s downwards spiral into oblivion.

    As I’ve written before, there’s no country the U.S. can’t negotiate with. From Bush II to Nobel Peace Prize winning Dronebama and now Trump, this country’s foreign policies has been hijacked by an elite cabal of Vietnam War draft dodgers, corrupt foreign governments like Israel and Saudi Arabia who are as inhumane as the governments they want us to “liberate”, and politicians and lobbyists funded by the MIC who just to make a fortune on the lives of black and brown peoples who’ve never been a threat to us – all of this without any thought of the inevitable blow-back to the world in terms of refugees and terrorism. The post-Berlin Wall uni-polar world so beloved by non-serving think tank chicken hawks is over and it’s time all the superpowers learned to get along in a multi-polar world.
