Israelis Are the “Very Best in Population Control;” US Marines Learned Much at Their Feet

An Iraq War Veteran in Palestine

Will Griffin’s “Peace Report” has just posted this short documentary by Chris Smiley. Capt. Matthew Hoh, USMC, is featured; he has nearly twelve years experience with U.S. wars overseas with the Marine Corps, Department of Defense and State Department.

In 2009, Hoh resigned from his diplomatic post in Afghanistan over the feckless U.S. escalation of the war. Virtually all sentient diplomats there were aware of the March of Folly.  Matt was the only one with the courage and integrity to turn down blandishments to “stay on the team” and eventually be promoted to still higher position.  He quit outright and went public.
Matthew Hoh is now an activist with Veterans For Peace and a Senior Fellow with the Center For International Policy. Hoh, Will Griffin, Chris Smiley, and Ray spent two weeks in Palestine during February-March 2017 as members of a small Veterans For Peace delegation.

A Punk, Not a Putin

Ray suggests it was a too-clever-by-half punk from NJ who orchestrated a faux “hack” into the DNC blamed on Russia. Coming soon: Watch Brennan squirm; and the more patrician Comey try to ‘splain why the FBI never inspected DNC computers.

On Monday, while Isreali snipers were killing scores of Palestinians, UK radio host Richie Allen asked Ray to comment, and also to describe what happened when he spoke up at the May 9 Senate confirmation hearing for (now CIA Director) Gina Haspel.

Toward the end, Richie Allen asks, “Ray, why do you bother?”  It’s a frequent question that Ray actually welcomes, since he has been blessed with tons of good example, as well as good advice.
