Sanctions and economic warfare will massively aggravate starvation
I would love some of the talking heads on any network to read this and comment…. but I will have to launch a monkey out of my ass first. 👍
Your comment makes some good points, but its tone of emotional blackmail towards the reader left me feeling uncomfortable - but not guilty. The facts in the article are powerful enough without anything else. Perhaps best to direct blame at the perpetrators - the deep state and their buddies.
I remember Obama, then Trump, increasing sanctions on Venezuela, and I remember talking about how sanctions kill people (flashback to Madeline Albright's comment on Iraq sanctions killing 500,000 children). And I remember not being able to get that point across. "sanctions", kinda like "no fly zone" are words that have this anodyne sound. Comforting. And nobody in the west who's well off & comfortable actually believes in starvation.
That said, there's also, I think, an underlying sense of helplessness in all this--people are so numbed. So, yes, complicit. But I think it goes deeper than willful ignorance. Or maybe willful ignorance goes deeper than I want to think. Time to reread Debord.
