    Why The Empire Never Sleeps: The Indispensable Nation Folly

The true fiscal cost is upwards of $1.0 trillion per year (counting $200 billion for veterans and debt service for wars), but there is no way to pay for it.

    It is surely appropriate that the self-proclaimed ‘Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics’ [DPR, LPR] date their ‘statehood’ from a fake referendum that even Russia eventually decided not to recognize. This is not the way the so-called ’11 May referendum’ is presented in the militant-controlled media and a new...
