Blinded by the Hypocrisy

CA MinuteManIII test launchWe lecture and threaten Iran and North Korea about the evils of weapons of mass destruction (WMD). But the US routinely tests our own WMD's from Vandenberg Air Force Base in southern California. And there will soon be another "test firing" of a Minuteman III nuclear missile from that base.

A protest is planned at the time of the next launch of a Minuteman III from Vandenberg. The target of the rocket will be the Ronald Reagan missile test range, Kwajalein atoll in the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean.

The protest will begin at the start of the launch window on midnight June 29. You can see launch details at

The vigil will be held at the front gate of Vandenberg. The protest will continue until the rocket is launched.

The event is sponsored by the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom and the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power is Space. Andrew Lichterman of the Western States Legal Foundation will be the keynote speaker at the front gate vigil.

We must become "dehypnotized" so we can see things as they are. The US uses the fear of other nuclear pipsqueak nations to get our own citizens to support massive US military buildups that are all about dominating the world.

If the US was genuine in wanting other nations to stop the development of their nuclear capability then we'd lead by example, as is required by the United Nations Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), and we'd get rid of our own evil WMD.

But alas we don't do the honorable thing and the world looks at our mad ramblings and says - you are a hypocritical nation.

And they are right. MMIII2


  1. Is that Bruce Gagnon?

    Are you one of us now Bruce?

    Righteous. COTOCrew is a growing folks.

  2. Yes I joined the crew, glad to be here.....

  3. Uncle Adolph made the mistake of starting shit on too many fronts at one time. Why must we repeat history? Its like deja-vu all over again.

  4. Hypocrisy, what else can be expected from a nation that calls itself Christian?

  5. Bruce.. welcome! so glad you joined us. I've long been a fan of your articles.

    It's amazing the whole of America isn't wise to the hypocritical policies of not only the U.S. but Israel.

    We are really teetering on the edge of nuclear war with.. pick a nation.. N Korea? Iran? China? Russia?
    And the average American doesn't have a clue as to why.

  6. And I a fan of your comments Jersey girl. One day I stopped and noticed that your, and several other, regular commentors had disappeared from my posts on OEN. Then thankfully someone sent me a message letting me know what was going on.

    Yes we really are heading into danger as Russia and China are saying, "Why should we reduce our nukes when you are developing Star Wars to give the US a first-strike advantage?"

    No real change so far........

    Good to have you aboard Sir.

    Yeah, what is going on at Op Ed Snooze has been going on at LOTS of places.

    They are all being exposed.

    We will build on that.

    Hold on to your hats folks. We are poised on the edge of growing BIG TIME.

  8. Welcome Bruce. Glad you could make it, and thank you again for all of your work at Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space.

    Yes, many people were banned at "the other site" and for no apparent reason, other than we're tired of the status quo. I've also read several comments at Common, and they too are beginning to screen messages.

    By the way, nice article. We are indeed a "hypocritical nation."

    And I hope you don't mind me posting this lad? It is brilliant.

  9. Why thanks Munich...very kind of you.

    I've got a new video online from a speech I made last March in Florida where I did an overview of Obama's foreign policy. See it at:
