Stopping The War, Hopefully

The statements, views and opinions expressed in this column are solely those of the author and do not necessarily represent those of this site. This site does not give financial, investment or medical advice.

The Stop The War Coalition was founded in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. If you are old enough to remember that terrible day first hand, you will probably remember also the commitments that were made on both sides of the Atlantic when the world had recovered from the shock. Our governments proclaimed a war on terror. And now we all know where that led. Rather than being a war on terror, this was a terror to perpetuate war. War in the metaphorical sense as well as the literal one; everything from near total surveillance to enhanced civil asset forfeiture can be traced back to this.

Stop The War is made up overwhelmingly of leftists who believe and spout all manner of drivel. Doubtless it is also used by some organisations as a recruiting ground, but if it succeeds in its primary goal, does that matter?

In Britain, Stop The War held a day of action on May 7. This included meetings in Cardiff, Swansea and Glasgow with 8 in London.  They have called an even bigger event for June 25. Styled INTERNATIONAL DAY OF ACTION FOR PEACE IN UKRAINE, they say: “We are calling for the withdrawal of Russian troops, an end to the military escalation by the NATO countries and for all efforts to be focused on finding a negotiated solution to this terrible war”.

Stop The War has a YouTube channel with 24 thousand subscribers, far too few, but check it out. It includes not only campaigning videos but explanatory videos. You may not agree with or even like their explanations, but if you listen to only one video, listen to the recent seven and a half minute upload by Professor Paul Rogers who points out that not all the blame for the current madness can be blamed on Russia, much less Vladimir Putin.

It’s 2022 and here we are fighting as though we haven’t learned a thing in the last 5000 years. Oh. but we can help the neocons achieve their lifelong goal of ruling the world and feeling so good, and then blame it all on Putin and the Russians because they didn’t think that NATO nukes 3 minutes from Moscow was a sporting good idea. Space to Earth. Space to Earth. Do you have any examples of intelligent life?

Yes. Why is no blame being directed towards the likes of Jens Stoltenberg for pushing NATO expansion at any cost whilst describing it as defensive action? For me , he should receive daily descriptions in the press as an unhinged maniac.He has been given a free pass.

I was under the impression this lunatic had a new job in the banking industry, so why is he still representing that criminal organisation called NATO ???

What in the world would make anyone believe that anything anyone says about the war would make the neocons stop it?

It wouldn’t make the neocons stop it, but we are trying to educate the sheeple about what’s REALLY going on, and why, to perhaps stop the brainwashed sheeple from supporting and cheering on the neocons in their criminal and self-defeating endeavors.

Helga, I am a subscriber to RT, and take note of many comments posted thereon. It has come to my attention over the last three weeks or so, that there has been substantial increase of supportive comments being posted, supporting the actions of Russia and their allied forces within Ukraine. Which to me, is a big relief, telling us all, that finally the wool is slowly being pulled back from people’s eyes and they are beginning to see the reality facing us all. Today, I read of the Ukrainians turn off the gas supposedly in transit to the E.U. who… Read more »

Why are you punishing yourself with a Sisyphean Task (rolling a boulder up a steep hill, only to watch it tumble back down). The sheeple purpose on this earth is to be deceived by the ruling establishment, and there is nothing you can do about it.

UK & US require Ukraine to fight to the last Ukrainian.
This fits their depopulation agenda.

Henrik Palmgren from Red Ice Radio, interviewed Tim Ball on the 1st December 2009.
 
The title of the interview is ‘Climategate & The Anthropogenic Global Warming Fraud’, and it is a must listen. It completely opened my eyes to the Climate Change Hoax.

Public protest by peoples of all nations certainly has an effect on the sensibilities of those who participate, but not on the complices of the deep Khazarian state that dominates the Western world with the power of money and media. They want to dominate the world alone (NWO – WEF) and this includes the destruction of all nation states as well as their populations (with the help of covid poison injections). As an important stumbling block on their path, Russia must be brought under control. That is why they are waging a proxy war against Russia on the soil of Ukraine… Read more »
