Joe Biden the Imperialist: "I pressed Clinton to begin air strikes against Serbia”

 By Nikos Mottas.

Joe Biden is officially the 46th President of the United States. Bourgeois media affiliated with the Democratic Party and various “progressive” voices, in the U.S. as well as in Europe, have been engaged in an campaign to present the Biden administration as a factor of “positive changes” in the international political affairs.

Mr Biden is not new in politics. On the contrary, he has been a U.S. Senator from 1973 to 2009 and U.S. Vice President from 2009 to 2017. Since the beginning of the 1990s and the victory of counterrevolutions in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, Senator Biden has been a proponent of the interventionist imperialist policy of the United States. The last three decades are full of examples where the U.S. and their NATO-EU allies initiated imperialist wars under the pretexts of “democracy” and “human rights”.

John McCain: An imperialist warmonger and Nazi-collaborator

The notorious war hawk U.S. Senator and former Presidential candidate John McCain has died. The bourgeois political system in the United States and the corporate mass media have already started their campaign to whitewash McCain, presenting him as a “hero” and a “patriot”. 

From George W. Bush to Senator Bernie Sanders and from Barack Obama to Hollywood actor Tom Hanks, the bourgeois establishment is glorifying the Arizona Senator, presenting him as “a man of decency and honor” (Sanders) and “a patriot of the highest order”.

Yes to PEACE, No to NATO: Demonstration against NATO Summit in Brussels on 6-7 July

The World Peace Council (WPC) appeals to all organizations and activists in Europe that defend the cause of Peace, to promote actions against NATO and its summit in Brussels (6-7 July 2018), for the dissolution of this political-military block and in favour of the struggle of each people within each NATO member state for withdrawal from this military organization.

We recognize that NATO has now existed for almost 70 years, and that during this entire period NATO has continued to increase its membership, in expanding its sphere of influence, its aggression and its demands on the people.

We recognize that NATO has continued to exist, without any interruption in its role, through many changes of governments in all its member states, including the US.

We recognize that it is important to concentrate on raising public pressure and attention to NATO and its imperialist nature, instead of concentrating on a particular leader.
