Antinuclear

Australian news, and some related international items

The week in nuclear news Australia

A bit of good news – Marc Jacobson: No miracle tech needed: How to switch to renewables now and lower costs doing it.

In my newsletters and on my websites, there are a lot of articles critical of, indeed condemning, NATO and the USA.  There are also articles critical of Ukraine, and some revealing the Russian point of view.   This isn’t because I’m a Putin supporter. I’m not, and certainly don’t support his illegal invasion of Ukraine. I have publicised some atrocities by the Ukrainians –   but I don’t doubt that there have been some atrocities by the Russian side.

The pro-Ukraine, pro NATO/USA side is fulsomely covered by the mainstream media. My reason is simply that the mainstream media is blanketing us with a very biased coverage of the Ukraine war – we are being brainwashed to believe that Ukraine is winning this war,  – there’s no case for a negotiated settlement, and that the might of NATO/USA is the solution to this problem, and to pretty much every other problem on the planet. China is evil, but NATO will fix everything. The message is, as a notoriously corrupt Australian Premier used to answer questions , –   ” Don’t you worry about THAT” – (ie. ”don’t think. just cheer us on.”)

AUSTRALIA.

NATO has completed its post-Cold War transformation from Europe’s guard dog into America’s attack dog.    If you want to be accepted as ”Western” – best to be white.      NATO to add Finland, Sweden, prepare Australia, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea .

NATO pressures Finland, Sweden to back “Türkiye’s” war against Kurds as price of admission.     Finland, Sweden join Turkey’s war against Kurds to get NATO pass.      New, aspiring NATO members must adhere to Anglo-American pieties, dogmas, articles of faith .         NATO summit: Pentagon to establish permanent military bases in Central, Eastern Europe.       Military social media campaigns promote the war in Ukraine, and attack any ”wrongthink” that dares criticise role of USA and NATO.
