    Default Is This Acceptable?

    There is No Discussion in the US Presidential Campaign:

    There is no discussion in the US presidential campaign of the preparations of the ruling class for an immense escalation of war following the elections in November.

    Is this acceptable? Does anyone feel we're being handed a 'bait and switch?' Perhaps you don't buy the line of 'immense escalation.' Or, perhaps you look forward to it and hope we DON'T catch on to what's coming.

    Thoughts?

    Dear IMT:

    Give us a link and start the conversation.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

    From his link:

    War and the 2016 US elections
    22 February 2016
    Amidst the endless media commentary, debates and
    stump speeches by the major candidates for US president,
    there is virtually no discussion of the active preparations
    of the ruling class for an immense escalation of war
    following the elections in November.

    The elections themselves are being held under
    conditions of expanding militarist violence all over the
    world. In the Middle East and North Africa, the Obama
    administration launches air strikes in Libya even as
    NATO-member Turkey and US-ally Saudi Arabia
    consider a ground invasion of Syria. A leading German
    newspaper recently commented that a Turkish invasion,
    resulting in a conflict with Russian forces backing the
    Syrian government, could quickly “mean ending a cold
    war [between the US and Russia] and starting a hot one.”


    US denunciations of Russia’s role in Syria come amidst
    a relentless militarization of Eastern Europe in the two
    years since the Western-backed coup in Ukraine. The
    right-wing nationalist Baltic states and Poland are being
    armed and given a virtual blank check to stage actions
    against Russia with the knowledge that they will be
    backed by the US and NATO.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
