Whereas the spokesman/person need not have the last word, must journalists have the last question of the person/s being interviewed—at that time and in that space. Context is not secured until this privvy-Fact is ascertained. I went outta my way from 1957 thru 2003 w US-military, in uniform and outta uniforms; w politicians from 1972 thru 2008, w philosophers and professionals; w professors; w anti-NucleaRist: boomers, as well, of course, w we-Boomers. I knew about NSDU-238 as a Radionuclide at age 5.6 years, which one I could not find-out until my walk w Prof. Howard Zinn, on tip of Manhattan Island 1968. I had maintained that one could find factual-Basics to share: Universally, thru-out the past 47 years.
“The United States engaged in unnecessary wars, and when these wars were easily won on the immediate battlefield, the unplanned for occupations lead to guerilla insurgencies that were not so easy for a conventional military to confront. The U.S. Army was not prepared for guerilla warfare in urban areas, nor for the brutal and immoral tactics that their new enemies were willing to engage in. They obviously had not reflected upon the Soviet experience in Afghanistan, nor the nature of their new enemies. As casualties mounted due to roadside IEDs, snipers, and suicide bombers hidden amongst civilians, the U.S. military and the defense industry were forced to find ways to protect soldiers and make vehicle less vulnerable to these types of attacks. This resulted in vehicles of every description being armored and new IED resistant vehicles being designed and fielded in large numbers. This in turn, equated to a vast amount of time, effort and money. It also focused both the U.S. military services and the defense industry away from fighting conventional wars against peer adversaries.
After a decade of fighting an insurgency in Afghanistan and almost as long in Iraq, the U.S. leadership decided to destroy the sovereign nation of Libya, and foment a war in Syria immediately afterward. There is no doubt with the knowledge of historic events today, that the CIA and State Department facilitated a foreign invasion of Syria of Islamist radicals. They funded and armed these groups, provided clandestine training, and facilitated the logistical movement of fighters and weapons into a sovereign nation to cause its disintegration. In these two examples they decided not to occupy these countries, but to destroy all semblance of ordered society and replace it with brutally violent chaos. The U.S. political and military leadership seems to have learned that their past adventurism resulted in costly occupations, yet instead of refraining from using the military option as a tool to alter geopolitical realities they did not like, they merely opted to abandon the responsibility of occupation and re reconstruction all together.
Why the U.S. Military is Woefully Unprepared for a Major Conventional Conflict Benghazi, Libya. An example of democratic progress and stability in North Africa courtesy of U.S. led “humanitarian intervention”.
While Secretary Mattis describes the “near peer” nations China and Russia as “revisionist powers”, it was not these nations that made the irresponsible and reckless decisions that have weakened the U.S. military establishment, nor aim to revise the ill-conceived and executed catastrophes of their American “peers”. They have reached a state of military and technological parity with, and in many cases a position of superiority vis a vis the United States, because they exercised better judgement over the past two decades, invested their time, talent and treasure in developing powerful conventional and nuclear forces, and refrained from using their national defense assets to punish their perceived adversaries in such a way that more damage was caused to themselves. In many ways, the poor example of the United States and its ill-conceived military expeditions, influenced both Russia and China to advance along different paths. Now, without recognizing and acknowledging the failures of leadership and decision making that have lead the U.S. military to a weakened state, the United States has declared that it is now in a period of strategic competition with the two other strongest kids on the block.
In order to understand how Secretary Mattis has come to such a declaration, we have to look at the U.S. military decisions, actions, mistakes, and failures of leadership at the highest levels that have brought us to this point. A brief analysis of the resultant metamorphosis of the United States military from a robust and balanced conventional fighting force, backed up by a viable nuclear deterrent into a force obsessed with occupation and counterinsurgency must be conducted. This must be followed by a study of how the U.S. military has decided to invest its extensive funding, the weapons systems it has pursued, and how it envisions that it is best suited to protect the national security interests of the state. Finally, a comparison must be conducted of the capabilities of its declared strategic adversaries. A conclusion can then be made regarding the ability of the United States military to successfully engage and defeat these adversaries in a future conflict.”
Whereas, no mention of NSDU-238 causing worldwide causticity amongst knowing semi-Educated and not nonchalant persons, tribes, ex-military and even current service-personnel serving in thesis rogue-empire, as well as a host of other nation-states.

Most NPP’s have tritium problems?
I am not going to ‘hazard’ a guess, but the gRaphite ReactoR @ Hanford, is the one that was leaking in 1970-71 when we protested there—on site! As almost all American sites have tritium problems meaning, both gas and radionuclide, the fire may not have been a release of pu-239—which would have been ultra-deadly! Yet, the immediate indoors area of that plant has always been a polemic of “stay aware” and the Geiger meter readings were as chauvinist as the NRC themselves i.e. no report to what actual background levels are/were?
Hanford decommissioning of gRaphite reactor building, hits snag that has gone UN-reported for two weeks… The Calhoun plant on the Missouri River above Omaha NE was constantly leaking ‘tritium’ and the other US gRaphite Reactor, Savannah River site leaked both pu-239 and tritium, in 1971, altho that was a big cover-up that was finally uncovered because the plant was in operation—1974. “R”

NSDU-238 Cannot be used in Ukraines
Ever get to Ukraines, where the we-people are peace-Loving but the animosities of bureaucracy were waylaid to install ”neo-Fascism” no freedom around, yet! Yess. The punks-of-puke on you, are a bit not miserly! Order of morosely Yugoslavia, and Libya, but here,NSDU-238 will-not-be-used! “R”
“A political disaster planned and funded by Washington is entering a new and even Orwellian stage. What is Victoria Nuland’s impact on the Ukrainian crisis? Is there a peaceful resolution of the crisis? And what is on Nuland’s mind?”

“Promoting themselves as an “international group of intellectuals,” the organizers have issued a publicity handout—excuse me, a “Manifesto”—in which the meeting is described as “an encounter between those who care about freedom and a country where freedom is dearly won.” There is some truth in this statement, as the overthrow of the Yanukovych government did, in fact, cost the United States a great deal of money.
The meeting is an exercise in imperialist propaganda. Its sponsors include the embassies of Canada, France, Germany, Poland and the United States. Other sponsors include the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, the European Endowment for Democracy, and Eurozine. On the Eurozine web site, which is heavily promoting the Kiev meeting, there are numerous postings relating to the geostrategic implications of the Ukrainian coup. Prominently featured are articles such as “How to Win Cold War II.” Its author, Vladislav Inozemtsev, is presently a visiting fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, DC.”

Neo-Liberalist Disease, Police state & Noam Chomsky Speaking
“April 15 marks the one-year anniversary of the imposition of de facto martial law in Boston in response to the Boston Marathon bombings. In the aftermath of the attack, residents were told to “shelter in place” while squads of police in body armor bearing assault rifles conducted warrantless house-to-house searches, and machine gun-mounted armored vehicles occupied the streets while police helicopters circled overhead.
This was a dry run for dictatorship in the United States. It was carried out with near universal support from the political establishment and the media.
The social and political buffers that in the past mitigated the conflict of opposed classes are disintegrating under the pressures of economic crisis and social polarization. The class war has to this point been one-sided. The American working class has not yet responded in a mass way. But that will come, sooner than many think.”
Police killings in America
WSWS 9 April 2014
“The past month has brought the criminalization of political dissent in the United States to a new stage, with the May 5 conviction of 25-year-old Cecily McMillan for assaulting a policeman during the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City, and the April 25 sentencing of three anti-NATO protesters to long prison terms for taking part in discussions about violence initiated by two Chicago police infiltrators.
The circumstances of both cases are outrageous, with severe penalties being imposed on individuals who are not criminals, but political opponents of the policies of the Obama administration and corporate America, for which they have become victims of police violence and provocation. The cases involve people who took part in peaceful, legal protests in New York City and Chicago, only to be framed up and convicted on felony charges.”
