We must dissolve the current geopolitical UN war system, and convert the UN to a global peace system.


Dear Roger,

Many thanks for the brilliant article by Dave Lindorff that US militarism is the main threat to America's security. I published it here: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=804

I am very pleased with your excellent commentary o­n the UN into this article: We must dissolve the current geopolitical UN war system, and convert the UN to a global peace system. It accurately and lapidary expresses the deep essence of our GHA project of UN reform: "UN Harmony." (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=769). Therefore, your comment was included in it along with the comments of Prof. Michael Brenner (see attachment) and published o­n your personal page in two languages: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=680
Best wishes of peace from harmony,

Dear Leo,

Good to hear from you. I am very favorably impressed with your large collection of articles taking aim at the failed UN geopolitical system, and GHA's call for harmony and to seek out the best people in your 4 Spheron sectors to make global government succeed in a positive way.

I've made some edits per your request through page 21 which seems to be where the most editing needs to be done; and after page 21 is not really my area of expertise.  I've used the color gray to recommend deletions, and used the color yellow to indicate suggested re-wording -- in most cases the changes are minor, but the use of English is improved.

 (I salute you for writing in English!  That is a difficult and o­nerous task but makes your material available to us who o­nly use English -- proving that we Americans are very narrow culturally speaking!)

No need to list me as a co-author.  You've cited a couple of my articles which is good enough.  I'm not going to write any phrases about the GHA project because it is an area that I am not an expert, and because my main concern is creating a popular following among activists and to obtain support at the UN for the Constitution for the Federation of Earth ("Earth Constitution"), of which I am a personal ratifier and strong advocate.  

Your critique of the UN and of US/NATO/(Israel) is very similar to my own thinking, and I respect you and your group for speaking out like you do.

Hope all goes well for you.  Although I deeply dislike President Trump's domestic plans (he helps the rich and hurts the poor), I would still like to have Putin and Trump co-host a Global Peace Summit, and include India and China...and of course, my own NGO group!

Best regards,

Roger Kotila PhD.

Dear Roger,

Thank you very much for your laconic, but significant in meaning editing the project first (critical) part and most importantly for your courageous and powerful support of this UN reform project. You expressed an honest view of a scientist who recognizes the facts and is not afraid of them, does not hide from them and does not falsify them. You have congenially understood the essence of our approach to reforming the United Nations o­n the basis of the deep harmonious structure of the four Spherons of each nation that overcomes their wars and militarism.

You have inspired me to the corresponding first, philosophical, part of the project in 2-3 pages, which I will send tomorrow or the day after tomorrow, and I will keep its critical part in the project as its Appendix.

All this allows me to offer you a joint transformation of your "Earth Constitution" into the "Earth Constitution of Spherons Harmony" o­n the basis of the philosophy and sociology of the Spherons. Is this acceptable and possible for you? Could you answer this question after getting acquainted with the new, philosophical part of the project? Thank you,
Best wishes for peace from harmony through the Spherons science,

Philosophy and Dialectics of the UN Spherons

GHA members, friends,

I am glad to send you 3 pages of the new first part of the UN reform project, the former first part of which is transformed into the category: "Appendix 1. Facts: Critical Part.Motivation."

"Philosophy and Dialectics of the UN Spherons" (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=785) has an independent meaning of the philosophical summary of the social harmony knowledge in its deep structure of spherons. It is extremely important in our time of the collapse of all old philosophical and ideological paradigms such as Marxism, liberalism, fundamentalism and others and the maturing fundamentally new o­nes, of which the philosophy of Harmonism/Tetrism has the deepest historical roots in all world civilizations. Especially Greek, in the face of Heraclitus, 2,5 thousand years ago realized the key meaning of harmony, which neglected the violent disharmonious ideologies of the past two centuries that led them to an irrevocable collapse. Amen to them! o­nly the tree of harmony grows green!

My resume is intended primarily for people with a philosophical mindset and who has at least some knowledge of the history of philosophy. From them I wait and accept with gratitude critical remarks which I will publish.

Special expectations from the "Demiurge" members with whom we started this difficult and unique way of understanding the spherons represented in it as its four spheral micro-groups (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=305) since 1976. It is very interesting to see how we have "come down" with our micro-groups / spherons for more than 40 years. I am sure that someday at the UN Harmony will erect a monument not o­nly to Nume Pompilius, but also to the "Demiurge" for their contribution to global peace from harmony. Of course, if we do not burn everything in the American nuclear global Auschwitz (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=613). But let us hope that God will save humankind, still unreasonable and ignorant in harmony, from this world evil. Unfortunately, there is no o­ne else, even 72 years powerless against the wars of the UNwhich could save us. We can o­nly hope for God's Grace.

If we do not receive other versions of our project before December 5, it will be recognized as approved by the GHA.Many thanks to all for the hard work with this very important peacemaking project of the UN effective against the wars and militarism especially Roger Kotila, who inspired me to this text (see his personal page).

Heartily, best wishes for peace from harmony through the spherons science,

Dr. Leo Semashko, GHA Honorary President



Dear friends in the European Parliament & fellow peace activists,

 Please read carefully the following analysis by an American journalist familiar with the geopolitical undercurrents swirling against Russia and impacting Europe.  Will the EU be able to resist the economic sanctions imposed by the American Congress against Russia which could be interpreted as an act of (economic) war? 

We are witnessing in the USA an intensive propaganda campaign to give the (false) impression that Russia is an "enemy."   With an unpredictable President Trump, Europe must be cautious. Trump is naive about false flag operations (such as Gladio III), if activated by the Deep State,  could trick Trump into impulsively going to war.   

 Best regards,

The American Empire Is Rapidly Imploding!

Posted o­n July 30, 2017 by State of the Nation

Yelm, WA

July 30, 2017

by Rich Scheck


A brief review of the latest foreign policy developments demonstrates how rapidly the US Empire is coming apart at the seams.

With an Administration in Washington that is run by extreme nationalists and former military men along with a belligerent foreign policy that threatens war and more war across the planet, the economically weak US government has little prospect of avoiding WWIII much less staving off civil unrest at home.

Fed by massive MSM (main stream media) propaganda such as recently appeared o­n PBS, the American public is being conditioned to see Russia as its enemy: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47547.htm

Sterlings excellent analysis presumes the possibility that rational minds will prevail and war with Russia can be averted. That is extremely unlikely considering that the US empire is rapidly imploding under the Trump Administration which pays lip-service to fighting theDeep State but which is a more nationalistic
version of it. http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=79226

The American public is brain-deadand addicted to sports, consumerism and worse. Trump has made the mess he inherited worse with his misguided leadership. His selection of Cabinet members was dominated by hawks and hacks who are unable to deliver o­n his campaign rhetoric because they see the need to rely o­n the failed doctrine of projecting military force instead of fostering economic growth through cooperation with Russia and China:

Instead we see an escalation of tensions in all the key trouble spots:
Russia: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47545.htm
China: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47544.htm
Iran: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47542.htm
North Korea: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47548.htm

The apparent retreat in Syria is suspect because of our continuing support of the Kurds and is subject to a quick reversal at the behest of Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey or any of the other players in that o­ngoing war.

The collapse of the unipolar world and Pax Americana is upon us. Efforts to perpetuate Americas imperial foreign policy under-girded by a criminal mentality that violates the spirit and intent of the Nuremberg Doctrine is being resisted across the planet.

Even the EU is threatening to abandon its (former?) ally in response to the latest sanctions outrage.  We have returned to a delicate historical moment similar to August, 1914 and September, 1939 that preceded the start of the two previous world wars. With such poor leadership at the helm of the Americas Ship of State, the greater likelihood is that we will soon see a repeat of what has gone before.


Dear Roger,

Many thanks for your very interesting and important info about excellent review with the key true conclusions:

"The American Empire Is Rapidly Imploding!"+++the US Empire is coming apart at the seams.+++The American public is brain-dead+++The collapse of the unipolar world and Pax Americana is upon us".It was published o­n your personal page: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=680

It sounds like a funeral ringing for the American Empire of global militarism and aggression, a fall of which was predicted by Dr. Johan Galtung for 2020 as early as the end of the last century: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=599 . His prophecy is coming true!

Best wishes for peace from harmony through science,

Dear Leo,

Here's the letter I sent to President Donald Trump, and separately to his wife, Melania Trump.I fear that Mr. Trump may not have the wisdom or desire to do something so sensible, so I urge you to consider advising Mr. Putin to take the lead and launch an emergency Global Peace Summit -- with, or without Mr. Trump.

For peace and humanity,



"LET'S MAKE A DEAL"... call for an emergency Global Peace Summit

Dear President Trump


You will be receiving an APPEAL from a group of concerned social scientists from Russia, India, US, Mexico, Great Britain, and more. We are a group of experts (GLOBAL PEACE SCIENCE) alarmed that the world seems stuck in perpetual wars with the looming danger of a nuclear confrontation.

Nations have made a terrible mistake by favoring militarism and military science to find security, while overlooking peace science. As we have seen so clearly in the Middle East, militarism has proven to be a massive and tragic dead end.

We urge the G20 to explore with representatives of GLOBAL PEACE SCIENCE what steps might be taken to pull the world back from the brink of a world war and a nuclear catastrophe.Our liaison contact person for GPS is Dr. Leo Semashko (leo.semashko@gmail.com).

The July G20 Summit or September, 2017 UN Session would be a good time to initiate the "Global Peace Science Agenda of the UN" which was proposed to the leaders of the UN member states by peacemaking organizations and Nobel Prize Laureates.*

(*The text of this proposal is published in 8 languages o­n the website: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=757)

A bold and inspiring strategy would be to take advantage of President Trump's offer "LET'S MAKE A DEAL!"In practical terms hosting an emergency Global Peace Summit initiated by Russia (Putin), the US (Trump), India (Modi), and China (Jinping) with the help of representatives from GLOBAL PEACE SCIENCE.

Respectfully yours,

Please read carefully.  Alarm is justified.  Without  a "new UN" under a world charter such as the Constitution for the Federation of Earth,  these world crimes will o­nly continue as they have in the past with no adequate governing structure to stop them.

Syria: Trump May Just have Started World War III

By Peter Koenig

Global Research, April 08, 2017


 President Trump just ordered an US attack of at least 59 Tomahawk missiles from US warships in the Mediterranean Sea o­n Syrias al-Shayrat airbase near Homs.

Mr. Talal Barazi, governor of Homs province, reports several deaths but at this time does not offer further details. This Tomahawk assault was supposedly in response to Bachar al-Assads alleged nerve gas attack o­n 4 April, targeting the civilian population in Idlib Province that killed in excess of 60 people, among them many children.

It reeks all over of False Flag Gladio 2 level world. But nobody smells it, nobody wants to see it, nobody wants to hear it and especially, nobody wants to talk about it. The truth cannot be spoken. The attack has to be launched immediately, before any investigation could reveal the truth. Thats the way its always been. Kill the witnesses. Thats what Washington and its Zionist masters know best.

The Pentagon says Moscow was informed about the attack. There was no reaction from the Russian Government yet.

Earlier Mr. Putin stated that

it was unacceptable to bring accusations against anyone until a thorough and impartial international investigation was conducted.

Philip Giraldi, former CIA officer and Director of the Council for the National Interest, says that military and intelligence personnel, intimately familiar with the intelligence, say that the narrative that Assad or Russia did it is a sham. 


This is a classical case of a false flag, instigated by the CIA and carried out by Saudi-Turkish planes to blame Assad. Western presstitute media propagated and hammered into westerners indoctrinated brains the same lie as in 2013, when the East Ghouta Chemical attacks were killing children to justify US Humanitarian Military intervention. Then as today, the Washington assault was to follow quickly before the lie could be discovered, but Mr. Putin intervened by warning Washington not to attack or else and insisting o­n an investigation. Russian naval facility in Tartus and airbase in Khmeimim, Syria, were ready to counter a US attack.

Later it was proven beyond any doubt that the attack did not come from Syrias army, nor was it ordered by Mr. Assad, that it was indeed, o­nce more, a false flag carried out by the Syrian opposition, the so-called rebels, but in truth the western paid terrorists, with the purpose to blame Mr. Assad and to justify the regime change planned since 2009, since well before the CIA instigated start of the 2011 civil war.

(http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-ghouta-chemical-attacks-us-backed-false-flag-killing-children-to-justify-a-humanitarian-military-intervention/5351363 ).

It is depressing to see how the world the corrupted-to-the-bone western world swallows these lies and actually openly calls for war against Syria, for the removal of Mr. Assad, Syrias o­nly legitimate and sovereign President, elected by the Syrians and still enjoying more than 80% support of the people. Renown socialists, so-called peace seekers eyes are blurred by the western corporate lie-machine. It is sad to see. They believe the western criminal media. It is too hard even for them to admit to themselves that they have been duped, perhaps all their lives, and that they must now seek out and see reality. They cant. But instead to look inside themselves to ask themselves, what interest would Mr. Assad have to kill his own people, the children of his nation, the future of Syria and God help Syria to have a future again these shabby progressives are too noble to admit to reality and instead they join the blinded and call for regime change. Thats exactly what Washington and the Zionist murderers behind that foul inner-beltway monument of assassins, called the White House, want.

We are living a higher level of Operation Gladio again where evil reigns, where the most horrendous of what was o­nce called human beings are in power, killing mercilessly innocent people for their BIG PURPOSE, for world hegemony. This Judo-Christian civilization (sic-sic) has a history of more than 1000 years of Crusade killings, followed by colonial killing and raping and exploitation of countries and their people around the globe, from Asia to Africa to Latin America and there is no end. Our western culture is sold to Lucifer and his banking clan continuing killing for greed and power.

People wake up! If you dont, you may be next.

We all have this little spark left somewhere in our brains that tells you that something is not right that those who call the shots are liars, that the worlds justice is not with evil that justice is seeking peace not subjugation, power and material gains, but solidarity and harmony among us, brothers and sisters of the human kind.

But also, be aware that this monstrous beast knows no scruples. It has o­ne goal Full Spectrum Dominance and will not let go, under no circumstances, until this goal is fully achieved or itself, the monster, the exceptional nation, is subjugated and disabled.

People stand up and become disabler of the empire!

Syria is a mere square o­n this murderous chess board, as was Yugoslavia, Libya, Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan, and many more to come. The purpose is not winning a war that would be too simple. The purpose is creating and leaving behind chaos, eternal chaos. In the case of Syria a balkanization of the country, what Clinton did to Yugoslavia. The old divide to conquer it still works after hundreds of years. People are still blinded to these oldest and most rudimentary of war strategies. They still fall for it; dont notice; swallow the lies.

In Syria, the stakes are high. In addition to the insane profits of the war and weapons industry there is the little talked about Qatar-Turkey-Syria pipeline that was to bring oil and gas from the Gulf to Europe to demolish the Russian gas market in Europe and to make trillions for US petro-giants; a pipeline Mr. Assad rejected in 2009. Instead he approved and promoted the Iran pipeline through Syria to Europe. Iranian hydrocarbons would complement, rather than compete with, gas and oil from Russia for Europe. Thats when Obama decided that Bachar al-Assad had to go. It also fitted the bigger picture a balkanized Middle East, with steady conflicts fueling the war industry but eventually leading to a Greater Israel, stretching from the Euphrates to the Nile, absorbing, parts of Saudi Arabi, Iraq, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and Egypt.  

Its barbarism. I see it coming masqueraded under lawless alliances and predetermined enslavements. It may not be about Hitlers furnaces, but about the methodical and quasi-scientific subjugation of Man. His absolute humiliation. His disgrace.  Odysseas Elytis, Greek poet, in a press conference o­n the occasion of receiving the Nobel Prize (1979).

 "Bad American Values? Freedom to Lie, Cheat, Steal, & Kill"  Reader Supported News (March 3, 2017) was a troubling article to write.  But after reading "The CIA As Organized Crime" (2017) by Douglas Valentine, I knew I must speak out. (see link below)


 At the end of the Viet Nam war, many of us thought we could relax, that now America was o­n the right track.  But it got worse. The corruption is far deeper than most of us anticipated which is why I believe that we will need a global movement to make the needed corrections.

Bad American Values? Freedom to Lie, Cheat, Steal & Kill


Written by Dr. Roger Kotila   

Friday, 03 March 2017 06:28

Is America a bad guy masquerading as a good guy?

President Trump himself has a reputation for lying.  Yet he was elected President of the United States. o­ne joke going around asks What two words tell you that President Trump is lying?  When he says Believe me!

Mainstream media repeatedly portrays America as the worlds leader for freedom and democracy.  But sadly, this view of America appears to be factually false.  Aside from having undemocratic allies like Saudi Arabia, a country notorious for human rights violations, Douglas Valentines The CIA As Organized Crime (2017) is Exhibit A.  It portrays a different picture of who America is, a perspective that even President Donald Trump appears to agree with when he remarked, You think our countrys so innocent?

The exceptionalism myth fools Americans into trusting that their country is doing good, when in reality, America has routinely violated civilized standards of conduct, and could even be described as a rogue power
.  The US, for example, refuses to belong to the International Criminal Court, thus protecting its officials, military personnel and covert operatives from judicial prosecution when they commit crimes.

But does the right wings delusional fantasy of American exceptionalism give the US the right to violate international law and customs, to target nations for regime change (Syria, Libya, Iran, Russia), to invade countries (Afghanistan, Iraq), or to kill anyone whom the US designates as a terrorist (drone strikes, covert operations)?

While torture is considered a crime under international law and customs, the current President of the US proudly declares he supports torture.  He will not go to jail for this.  After all, he is running the country.


When President Trump implies in an interview that Americas moral standards were no better than those of Russia, Establishment media howled with shocked disbelief.

Trump waved off a description of Mr. Putin as a killer by suggesting that the US was similarly immoral. We got a lot of killers, Trump said, You think our countrys so innocent? (The Wall Street Journal reporting o­n a Bill OReilly Fox TV interview with President Trump, 2-6-17.)

But Trump makes a valid point. Mr. Valentines painstaking research o­n the Central Intelligence Agency documents a litany of criminal actions conducted around the world:  Assassinations, torture, overthrowing governments (regime change), supporting terrorists, and terrorism (false flag operations such as 9/11), drug smuggling and money laundering.

CIA methods include lying (Psy Ops/propaganda -- infiltration of media, fake news), cheating (bribing or blackmailing politicians), stealing (other countrys resources), and killing (assassinations, supporting terrorists, military invasions).


Mr. Valentines investigative research leads to a shocking conclusion about the CIA and America:

If we were allowed to understand the CIA, wed realize its a criminal organizationthat is corrupting governments and societies around the world.  Its murdering civilians who havent done anything wrong.  The (US) military does the same thing in a more violent way (p. 39).

It is not just the CIA involved in what o­ne might term as world crimes.  Pentagon generals allow the potential use of weapons of mass mutilation such as cluster bombs, depleted uranium munitions (e.g., in Fallujah), landmines, and of course, weapons of mass destruction (nuclear weaponry).

Americas bad guy role is carried into the United Nations, where the US shows a lack of respect for less powerful nations, and the UN itself. The US opposes a UN General Assembly proposal to ban nuclear weapons.  As a result, other countries possessing nuclear weaponry (like Russia) also refuse to accept the proposed ban.


From its birth the vast majority of nations at the UN have been frustrated by a rigged geopolitical system favoring the US, Russia, China, Great Britain, and France the Permanent 5 veto powers o­n the Security Council.

Less powerful nations in the UN are second class citizens.  When they stray from the desires of the Permanent 5 veto powers, there can be reprisals.  The UN itself can be subject to threats.

US Senator Lindsey Graham, angry that nations voted their conscience regarding the illegal settlements by Israel o­n Palestinian lands, vows to pull US funding unless the UN Security Council repeals Resolution 2334 (cnn.com, 12-25-16).

Similarly, former US ambassador to the UN, John Bolton insists that there must be consequences against the 14 countries that supported Resolution 2334.  Neocon Bolton, who shows little concern regarding the needs of the world community, proclaims that the US should defund its assessed contributions to the UN, presumably as a warning to the UN to submit to the demands of Israel (Wall Street Journal, 12/27/16).

Finally, the Trump Administration is considering withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council for being biased against Israel (politico.com, 2/25/17), yet the US has accepted Saudi Arabias presence o­n the Council.


The UN is powerless to prevent international crimes directed by leaders of powerful, bully nations. International law is routinely violated by favored nations who excuse themselves from the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court, a court that can try individuals but with no independent enforcement capability.

The ICC has mostly been applied to a few corrupt dictators of African nations, but never to the leaders and corrupt officials from the most powerful nations.

The UN stands by helplessly even when nations are taken over by corrupt dictators who steal the peoples money. These kleptocracies, as documented by Sarah Chayes (Thieves of State, 2015), go unpunished, protected by the UN Charters principle of national sovereignty (Chapter 1, Article 2).

In the UN geopolitical system of sovereignty for each nation, nations police themselves.  As a result, deeply corrupted nations rarely prosecute their own world criminals since the leaders of those countries are often the very o­nes who are responsible for the criminal behavior in the first place.

An unlucky citizen who lives in a deeply corrupted country has no recourse for justice especially when the corruption starts at the top and runs through to the police and the courts.

The UN is generally not allowed to interfere with the domestic affairs of a nation, thus is unable to prevent the theft of the peoples money and unable to stop human rights violations.  This is why Saudi Arabia is allowed to oppress women, abuse immigrant workers, and maintain a royal kleptocracy.  It supports terrorist groups like Al Qaeda linked to Wahhabi extremists, uses beheadings, and continues its barbaric invasion of neighboring Yemen.


The World Constitution & Parliament Association has the solution to the gaps in the Charter which have allowed unrestricted lawlessness among the nations.  WCPAs Constitution for the Federation of Earth (aka Earth Constitution) corrects these problems, and efforts are underway to reach the UN General Assembly.

Americans lost their country when the US Supreme Court gave the nation away to the billionaires by allowing unlimited amounts of Big Money to enter the election process.  Essentially, the Court cancelled democracy and turned America into an oligarchy.

While peace, environmental, and human rights activists work fervently to try to save America from an out of control oligarchy and a Deep State shadow government, world citizen activists are looking at the Big Picture -- the need for a popular global movement to help end the nightmare of world crimes within and between the nations.

Recent academic research confirms that a Charter Review is legally required and was promised, but has never been conducted
.  In response, Democratic World Federalists based in San Francisco has launched a campaign for UN Charter Review.  DWF is calling it The San Francisco Promise.

A Charter review by the UN General Assembly could open the door for a comparison of the current Charter to the Earth Constitution the latter an invaluable resource for the UN to understand the type of world judiciary system that will be needed to end global lawlessness.

The Earth Constitution also calls for a democratically elected World Parliament, giving we, the people o­nce and for all, a real voice in global affairs.

Dear Roger,

I was happy to publish your honest and courageous article about institutionalized and legalized American freedom "to Lie, Cheat, Steal, & Kill" in the "factually false democracy" o­n your personal page: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=680

This is an honest diagnosis of the doctor. But the patient's disease is systemic and deeply social, he was struck by all the central agencies and governance of the US, so the lotion of the UN Charter will not save him from death. There is little hope that  Trump's catharsis  will cure the patient but the patient wants to kill Trump and their forces are unequal ....

Unfortunately, America is deprived of scientific knowledge of social health, its deep societal structure of SPHERONS' harmony. Therefore, its social consciousness and its doctors are powerless to cure it. o­nly a catastrophe can be life-saving, but it will require a lot of innocent victims. Why America does not want to learn and develop social science and scientific public consciousness, to prevent a catastrophe, and millions of victims? WHY? Would you like a doctor to answer this key question? Thank you.

Best wishes for peace from harmony of SPHERONS,
Dr  Leo  Semashko

NATO at Russia's Border Arouses Ghosts of a Nazi Invasion


Dr. Roger Kotila

Tuesday, 04 October 2016     Reader Supported News


There is increasing concern regarding the United States and Russia, fear that current conflicts in Syria and Ukraine, along with U.S./NATO's move o­nto the borders of Russia could escalate to a war and a possible nuclear confrontation. This is not a fantasy.


The U.S. appears to be looking for a fight. Investigative journalist Robert Parry in "The Existential Madness of Putin-Bashing" (Consortium News, 9-14-16) describes what is going o­n against Russia as a "breathtakingly dangerous strategy."


Parry writes: "By targeting Putin and Russia, the neocons have upped the ante when it comes to their 'regime change' agenda. No longer satisfied with inflicting 'regime change' in countries deemed hostile to Israel Iraq, Syria, Libya, Iran, etc. the neocons have raised their sights o­n Russia."


According to Parry, Russia is being destabilized by "weakening its economy, isolating it from Europe, pushing NATO up to its borders, demonizing its leadership, and sponsoring anti-government political activists inside Russia to promote regime change."


In an urgent Special Report (Consortium News, 10-3-16) Parry asks "Do We Really Want Nuclear War with Russia?" He is convinced the American people are being prepared for war.  "The U.S. propaganda war against Russia is spinning out of control, rolling ever faster downhill with a dangerous momentum that threatens to drive the world into a nuclear showdown."




A leading Russian peace activist explains why Russia cannot trust the U.S. and NATO, but also offers a strategy for peaceful cooperation rather than war.  Dr. Leo Semashko, a State Councilor of St. Petersburg, Russia, shares Parry's alarm and has reached out to American peace activists.


A sociologist and philosopher, Semashko is founder of Global Harmony Association and the Chief Editor of Global Peace Science.  GPS is the title of a new book by "peace experts."  It features articles o­n world peace by 174 authors from 34 countries.  For Semashko, GPS is an important resource that should be used to avert war and bring peace.




Dr. Semashko tells us that NATO's expansion to Russia's borders is an ominous sign, bringing up memories for Russians of the Nazi invasion of World War II -- Operation Barbarossa.


From Wikipedia we learn: "Operation Barbarossa (German: Unternehmen Barbarossa) was the code name for Nazi Germany's World War II invasion of the Soviet Union, which began o­n 22 June 1941. The operation was driven by Adolf Hitler's ideological desire to destroy the Soviet Union, as outlined in his 1925 manifesto Mein Kampf."


Semashko elaborates in an open letter (sic) to members of Global Peace Science (8/30/16):

"The whole world is alarmed today with the United States and Russia extreme level of nuclear confrontation, more dangerous than the Cuban Missile Crisis 1962. It is caused by three most menacing facts:

The first. Deployment of NATO nuclear weapons and the accompanying infrastructure o­n Russia's western border that reminds to the Russians the Hitlers concentration of the Nazi troops within an aggressive plan Barbarossa in 1941. Now it is in 2016 - 75 years later.

The second. Intention of the US administration to spend an additional $ 1 trillion for modernization of nuclear weapons in the next decade. For what is it? It is not for peace, it is for nuclear war.

The third. Traditional, since Hiroshima/Nagasaki 1945, US policy, which allows the first use of nuclear weapons.


Sensing catastrophe, Semashko (8/30/16) exhorts "...we, peacemakers, cannot be the indifferent and helpless sheep to be slaughtered o­n the altar of a nuclear war, which would be a disaster for humanity and the planet."




Working with colleagues from the Global Harmony Association, Dr. Semashko issues an Appeal for a "Copernican revolution" in Russian-American relations. But how?


Semashko proposes forming a joint Institute of Global Peace Science with offices in Russia and the United States. Such a Russia-USA Global Peace Institute could open doors for peace science not found in our present military-fixated culture where funding goes almost exclusively to military science rather than peace science.


Semashko also sees the need for a "Scientific rearrangement of the global power (including the UN) architecture and building a multipolar world order, ensuring global peace since the end of the 21st century."




For rearranging the global power architecture Semashko looks to a world constitution designed as a democratic world federal union with enforceable world law:  "Scientific basis of the Earth Constitution as a Global Peace Constitution: the highest instrument of international law."


We must hope that Semashko's interest in the Earth Constitution is also seen positively by the leaders in Russia. In "NATO To Nuclear War, Yet Russia Not Our Enemy" (Reader Supported News, 7/14/16) I argue that Russia wants peaceful cooperation, not war. It seems pretty obvious that working together is the best strategy to avoid the nightmare of a nuclear war.




Journalist John Pilger reports that the leader of the British Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn would definitely talk to the Russians. In an election debate Corbyn was asked: How would you act o­n a violation by Vladimir Putin of a fellow NATO state?


Corbyn replied: You would want to avoid that happening in the first place. You would build up a good dialogue with Russia We would try to introduce a de-militarisation of the borders between Russia, the Ukraine and the other countries o­n the border between Russia and Eastern Europe. What we cannot allow is a series of calamitous build-ups of troops o­n both sides which can o­nly lead to great danger."  (Pilger, Provoking Nuclear War by Media, Global Research, 8/23/16).




Pilger explains the frenzied opposition to Trumps plan to talk to Putin:

"The CIA has demanded Trump is not elected. Pentagon generals have demanded he is not elected. The pro-war New York Times taking a breather from its relentless low-rent Putin smears demands that he is not elected. Something is up. These tribunes of perpetual war are terrified that the multi-billion-dollar business of war by which the United States maintains its dominance will be undermined if Trump does a deal with Putin, then with Chinas Xi Jinping."




A new type of Summit is needed in order to avoid the typical type of diplomatic (summit) meetings which have proved ineffective as evidenced by our world floundering in crisis.  Key world leaders must honestly face the need for both a geopolitical and spiritual revolution. Such a Summit should plan o­n 30 continuous days together, and include examining the need for the obsolete UN Charter to be phased out and replaced with a Global Peace Constitution the Earth Constitution.


Would Putin (Russia), Obama (USA), Jinping (China), and/or Modi (India) agree to host such an emergency Global Peace Summit, co-directed by a special NGO/GPS team to help guide these key world leaders out of the danger zone of a WWIII and nuclear war?

NATO Warmongering at the Highest Pitch: Anders Fogh Rasmussens Recent Book & the 21st Century Colonialism
Professor Filip Kovacevic | October 28, 2016
NATO: The dark god of death that every day brings the world closer to a nuclear apocalypse!

Introduction: Rasmussen and Me

On a warm spring evening in May 2014, when Anders Fogh Rasmussen, then secretary general of NATO, met in Podgorica with the top officials of the corrupt Montenegrin regime led by the prime minister Milo Djukanović, I was o­ne of the protesters in front of the building in which the meeting took place. In o­ne hand, I remember holding the sign that said "No to War, No to NATO" and in the other, a flag of the Movement for Neutrality of Montenegro (MNMNE), a civic social justice organization where I am the chairman of the board.

Later that evening I issued a public statement, reported by the Montenegrin media, in which I accused Rasmussen of a direct meddling in the electoral process, because his visit came just a few days before the decisive mayoral election in Podgorica.[1] Djukanović's clique was o­n the brink of losing the election after two decades of uninterrupted rule and it was clear that Rasmussen's visit would be used as the proof that Djukanović still had a strong backing among the "Western allies."

The things eventually played out just as I had predicted. Djukanović's candidate won the election thanks in part to Rasmussen's support. In his role as NATO secretary general, Rasmussen thus played a significant role in keeping the corrupt and authoritarian, but geopolitically loyal elite in power for years to come. His actions openly exposed the deceptive nature of NATO's claims that it stands for democracy, human rights, and the rule of law.

Rasmussen's Political Profile

In fact, moral duplicity and geopolitical bias have been Rasmussen's modus operandi from the very beginning of his political career. Ever since his time as the prime minister of Denmark (2001-2009), Rasmussen acted as the staunch supporter of the U.S. neoconservatives' efforts to impose the hegemonic Pax Americana o­n the world. He saw the expansion of NATO into East-Central Europe, including the ex-Soviet republics of Ukraine and Georgia, and the extension of the U.S. imperial reach into the Middle East and Central Asia as political imperatives.

Rasmussen was also o­ne of the most vocal supporters of the Iraq war and Danish soldiers went into Iraq almost immediately after the U.S. invasion. And when a Danish intelligence officer Frank S. Grevil leaked to the press the intelligence reports showing that Rasmussen knowingly exaggerated the threat of Saddam Hussein's WMDs (which turned out to be non-existent),[2] he was fired and jailed for four months, even though what he did was a act of whistle-blowing in defense of the public right to know about the misdeeds and abuse of power by public officials. In contrast, Rasmussen denied that he received the reports, or that he knew anything about them, and was able to stay in power successfully for another five years.

Even as recently as 2015, the Danish government blocked attempts by the opposition to have a thorough investigation into Rasmussen's decision-making process that led to the decision to go to war against Iraq. As some observers pointed out, the former British prime minister Tony Blair, another advocate of the Iraq war, was not so lucky and the Chilcot Commission's report condemned his actions in no uncertain terms.[3] And yet, even this report led to hardly any significant political or legal repercussions for Blair. Did anyone really expect that the corrupt British political elite and intelligence community would turn o­n o­ne of its own?

The 12th NATO Secretary General

Rasmussen even got rewarded for being the poster boy for the political immorality and cynicism of the global Pax Americana promoters by being selected for the position of NATO secretary general in August 2009. During his entire five-year tenure (until October 2014), Rasmussen worked around the clock to push NATO military and intelligence apparatus further East and legitimize its bloody interventions in the Middle East and North Africa. The "Arab Spring" rebellions, NATO's destruction of Libya and covert intervention in Syria all took place under his watch. He was o­ne of the main architects of the strategy of NATO's imperial expansionism, which I think should be referred to by its true name - the 21st century colonialism.

In addition, no secretary general before him was driven by such a deep-seated negativity towards anything Russian. He openly supported the Ukrainian coup in February 2014 and condemned Russia for the firm reaction to what was an unmistakable attack o­n its vital national interests, something that no state in the world would tolerate, not even the tiniest o­ne, let alone a nuclear power. Therefore, it did not come as a surprise when, several months later, Rasmussen was awarded the Ukrainian "Medal of Liberty," the highest Ukrainian decoration for foreigners, by the NATO-installed president Petro Poroshenko.[4]

In a twist of morbid cynicism, Rasmussen was praised by the Kyiv leadership as o­ne of Ukraine's "liberators," even though he was o­ne of those most responsible for instigating a horrendous civil war in which thousands of Ukrainian citizens have lost their lives and more than a million were driven into exile. While this may sound like a scenario of the Ministry of Propaganda from George Orwell's dystopian novel "1984," it is even worse than that because it is not fiction, but real life.

The "Rasmussen Global" Consultancy Firm

After his mandate as the NATO head ended, Rasmussen opened a geopolitical consultancy company called Rasmussen Global. According to the company's website, Rasmussen Global was set up to offer "strategic advice to governments, global organizations, and major corporations."[5] As I have shown in an earlier article, Rasmussen boasted o­n his Facebook page that he expected to have "many customers."[6] While it is not clear how many he has had so far, his most significant "customer" appeared just a few months ago, when, in May 2016, Petro Poroshenko appointed him to the position of a special presidential adviser.

Rasmussen was hired to do what he was best at: to do as much damage as possible to the EU-Russian relations. For instance, in an interview in February 2016, even before he got the job, Rasmussen strongly condemned the construction of another Nord Stream gas pipeline connecting Russia and Germany.[7]

Every time Russia is concerned, Rasmussen has quickly abandoned his doctrinal insistence o­n market freedom and free trade. He is "a fierce defender of freedom" (as he likes to refer to himself) o­nly when "freedom" is advantageous to his own geopolitical agenda. In all other cases, no freedom is to be allowed and even the legitimate public right to know can be punished by jail time as in the case of a whistleblower Frank S. Grevil mentioned earlier.

It is no wonder then that the Russian parliamentarian Leonid Kalashnikov called Poroshenko's appointment of Rasmussen as an adviser "a hostile gesture."[8] o­nce again, Rasmussen's well-documented Russophobia acquired the "official" cover. Not long after the appointment, Rasmussen crisscrossed the EU capitals in order to pressure (and perhaps even blackmail) the already doubtful EU leaders not o­nly to extend the sanctions against Russia, but also to make them even more stringent. At the same time, he argued that Ukraine had already taken great strides o­n the road to democracy and respect for the rule of law. He stated that "the current Ukrainian administration under president Poroshenko has carried out more reforms of Ukrainian society than you have seen in the past 20 years."[9] In other words, the EU should consider Poroshenko an angel and Putin a devil.

Rasmussen is far from being alone in publicly pushing this narrative. This line of thinking is also dominant in the CFR-dominated Washington power elite, including vice-president Joe Biden and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. That does not bode well for the future of the world.

Rasmussen As A CFR-Sponsored Theorist of the 21st Century Colonialism

It is precisely the CFR circles that have recently brought Rasmussen to the U.S. to promote his new book The Will to Lead: America's Indispensable Role in the Global Fight for Freedom, an apologia for the U.S. world dominance.

The thesis of the book boils down to the claim that the U.S. must [notice the imperative!] be the world's policeman, and not o­nly that. As Rasmussen writes in a September 20, 2016 op-ed in Wall Street Journal, "just as we need a policeman to restore order; we need a firefighter to put out the flames of conflict, and a kind of mayor, smart and sensible, to lead the rebuilding."[10] So, in addition to being a global policeman, the U.S. should also assume the roles of a global firefighter and a global mayor.

There is no mistaking it: this is a call for the U.S. to colonize the entire world. It is a geopolitical narrative for the 21st century colonialism. Rasmussen's narrative fully reflects the megalomania of the U.S. neo-conservatives in its worst authoritarian manifestations as exemplified, for instance, in the Project for a New American Century. It is ominous that after the Project has been discredited by a decade and a half of failed wars and covert operations, Rasmussen is again recycling it for the U.S. audiences. Bringing that 'intellectual zombie' back to life can o­nly mean further suffering and pain not o­nly for the world's most vulnerable populations, but also for the U.S. citizens, especially those from the middle and working classes.

Rasmussen and his CFR sponsors are far from being oblivious to the inflammatory character of his statements. They are in fact perfidiously provoking Russia (and, to a lesser degree, Iran and China because they are "saving" these countries for later) in order to peg the responsibility for the "line of fire" (the phrase used by the U.S. secretary of state John Kerry) in East-Central Europe and Central Asia o­n the recent Russian activities. As already pointed out, the prime target of their constant verbal attacks is Putin.

According to Rasmussen, Putin is a corrupt dictator who "brutally attacks his neighbors" and works to undermine the "rule-based international world order."[11] The fact that NATO itself undermined the U.N. Charter and the U.S. Constitution, and hence the "rule-based international order" so dear to Rasmussen, by its military attack o­n the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in 1999, when Putin was still a relative unknown in the Russian political circles, is conveniently swept under the rug. It does not fit the narrative that NATO is a moral force for peace, democracy, and human rights.

In the worldview of those who advocate U.S. global hegemony through military domination and the "empire of bases," NATO is depicted as the "savior" and all its destructive activities are silently passed over. In the mid-to-long term, these activities are ideologically justified, minimized, or even filtered out completely in "scientific" research articles and history books by the geopolitically sympathetic, but corrupt academics.

In this respect, it is particularly revealing to note what Rasmussen writes about Libya, the relatively prosperous state brutally wiped off the map by NATO bombs and turned into a safe haven for head-chopping extremists. Referring to Libya, Rasmussen suddenly become strictly factual. He says that "in North Africa, Libya has collapsed and become a breeding ground for terrorists."[12] He provides absolutely no analysis as to why and how this happened. He makes it seem like a natural catastrophe. Out of the blue, the state collapsed and terrorists just moved in.

Most of Rasmussen's arguments are as infantile as this o­ne and yet, o­n October 3, 2016, he was invited to present his book at Harvard University.[13] The championing of the U.S. hegemonic agenda, while, at the same time, seriously eroding the space for its critics, shows the near complete capture of the premier institutions of the U.S. higher education by the military-industrial-intelligence complex. Disrespect for other world's cultures and traditions and the overall "dumbing down" of the American society are the obvious consequences.

From the perspective of the U.S. global hegemonists, even a perfectly rational suggestion by Putin is made to sound like a war crime. Rasmussen tells of a meeting with Putin in 2009 when the latter said to him: "After the Cold War, we dissolved the Warsaw Pact. Similarly, you should dissolve NATO. That is a relic of the Cold War."[14] Rasmussen almost fell off his chair when he heard this because, for him, NATO is the "holy of holies" that nobody is supposed to come near and criticize, let alone call for its dissolution. And yet, what he and others from his ideological camp consider the "holy of holies" is none other than the dark god of death that every day brings the world closer to a nuclear apocalypse.

NATO To Nuclear War, Yet Russia Not Our Enemy Say Citizen Diplomats
by Roger Kotila, Ph.D.

Militaristic expansion to Russias borders by US/North Atlantic Treaty Organization is a dangerous brew of geopolitical maneuvering which increases the likelihood that by accident, by reckless provocation, or by secret design through CIA false flag operations--war could unexpectedly break out.

A string of lies and sophisticated propaganda has been strung regarding Ukraine, Crimea, and Syria to make Russia appear to be the bad guy.  These areas of contention are all potential flash points for further conflict and war.

The present dangers are aggravated by the recent Warsaw NATO Summit which announced plans to situate US/NATO troops in Poland and three Baltic states (Estonia, Lithuania, & Latvia) bordering Russia.  There are additional plans to deploy a ballistic missile system (Wall Street Journal, 7-9-16). 


The United Nations, shackled by its obsolete Charter, stands by helplessly unable to intervene as US/NATO moves full speed ahead with a campaign of disinformation demonizing Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russia itself as an aggressive enemy.

The quandary for the world community is that the UN cannot do what is necessary to keep the peace or to prevent nuclear war.  Moreover, when it comes to war mongering, the UN lacks the tools needed to prosecute those who use propaganda to manipulate public opinion to justify military build-ups.       


Russia sees NATOs military moves at its borders as potentially hostile acts and grows ever more suspicious of US motives, alert to the fact that Russia may be targeted for regime change.  The US has already used covert and/or overt operations for regime change in Iraq, Ukraine, Syria, Libya and elsewhere.    

In response the Russians are increasing their own troop levels and putting into place their own advanced nuclear weaponry.

Former US diplomat J. Michael Springmann, author of "Visas for Al Qaeda -- CIA Handouts that Rocked the World" (2014) concluded that the U.S. State Department works with the CIA to "destabilize governments that the U.S. opposed."  This was clearly the case in the Ukraine. 

Springmann, now a lawyer in Washington, D.C., estimates that "the average percentage of intelligence officers (CIA, NSA) to real diplomats at a given Foreign Service post is about o­ne in three." (Springmann, 2014, pp. 4 & 9).

In the Foreign Service sewer described by Springmann, o­ne could see how Russia is falsely made out as a villain, when in reality it becomes a victima target for falsehoods and "regime change. 


Is Russia really an enemy, or is it a victim of a propaganda campaign? Is Russian President Vladimir Putin being falsely demonized by the establishment press? 

There is ample evidence that supports condemnation of both the government and the establishment press.  The public is gradually learning about the lies that led to the Viet Nam war, the o­ngoing 9/11 cover-up, and the disinformation used to justify the brutal and illegal invasion of Iraq.

In NATO Reaffirms Its Bogus Russia Narrative (Consortiumnews.com, 7-11-16) veteran investigative journalist Robert Parry shows clearly how deception is being brazenly used by US/NATO in order to falsely make it appear that Russia is an aggressive enemy. Parry writes:

[Its unnerving to realize that the NATO alliance bristling with an unprecedented array of weapons including a vast nuclear arsenal has lost its collective mind. Perhaps its more reassuring to think that NATO simply feels compelled to publicly embrace its deceptive strategic communications so gullible Western citizens will be kept believing its lies are truth.

But here were the leaders of major Western democracies lining up to endorse a Warsaw Summit Communiqué condemning Russias aggressive actions while knowing that these claims were unsupported by their own intelligence agencies. Robert Parry 7/11/16]

Facing the possibility of an unthinkable nuclear war, it is of no small consequence that the public is being deceived, and that the NATO governments cannot be trusted to do the right thing.


With the UN unable to defuse the NATO vs. Russia confrontation, citizen diplomats have sprung into action having just returned from Russia.

Meet Sharon Tennison, president of the Center for Citizen Initiatives (CCI) whose open letter o­n CCIs website (www.ccisf.org, July 2016) tells a very different story about Russian intentions than what we are told by Western media.    

Ms. Tennison is a uniquely qualified expert o­n Russia.  She has visited Russia in "hundreds of trips...in the past 33 years."  CCI was started in 1983 during the Gorbachev and Reagan era with the bold idea that ordinary Americans could insert themselves into the nuclear arms race and bring about a constructive relationship with the Soviet Union. 

Nowadays Tennison is sharply critical of the American press.  Our mainstream media doesn't give us the accurate information we need," she reports, disturbed by how Western news sources paint the Russians as the aggressor and therefore an enemy contrary to her direct personal knowledge of Russia and its people.

CCIs Track Two diplomacy proved to be hugely successful. But unfortunately, writes Tennison, over the last two years relations between the two nuclear Superpowers have deteriorated badly.

As 2016 opens we find ourselves again facing the possibility of an unthinkable nuclear conflict. o­nce again its time for citizen diplomats from both countries to step in and help guide us back from the precipice at which weve arrived (Tennison, open letter, July 2016, www.ccisf.org).


Retired U.S. Army Colonel Ann Wright is part of the 20 person delegation that went to Russia. Wright, who o­nce served in the State Department, questions US/NATO's militarism and its characterization of Russia as an enemy.  She comes away convinced that the Russians want peaceful relations, not war, and provides a persuasive analysis in "Russians Ask Why Do You Demonize Us When We Are So Much Like You?" (OpEdNew, 7-4-16; also in www.ccisf.org).

Take Crimea, for example. The Wall Street Journals editorial (7-11-16) is misleading. It describes Russias annexation of Crimea as part of a Russian land grab, ignoring the fact that Crimeans freely voted to be part of the Russian federation rather than stay with Ukraine.  

This fact is confirmed by CCI citizen diplomats who met in person with numerous Crimeans.  The great majority of people they talked to indicated that they did not want to be part of Ukraine and preferred to stay with Russia.

Ukraine is another case where the public is misled. As the result of an intercepted phone conversation we now know that Ukraines democratically elected President Viktor Yanukovych was overthrown in a violent coup engineered through the covert efforts of the likes of the State Department's Victoria Nuland. Mr. Yanukovych was the victim of an American plot for regime change.


Citizen diplomats have reached out to ordinary citizens in others nations for mutual understanding and friendship.  They have even influenced superpower leaders to reduce the chances of a nuclear war. 

But citizen diplomats have yet to open the doors that will cause the UN General Assembly to rise up, the UN Security Council to step down, and the UN Charter to be replaced. 

The flaws in the UN Charter which prevent the UN from doing its primary jobpreventing wars and eliminating nuclear weapons, must be addressed.  The member-states of the United Nations have not done this, and as a result the UN is sidelined when it really matters, such as the crisis between NATO and Russia. 

Neither the UN General Assembly nor the UN Security Council has so far dealt with the urgent need for a new UN.  Peace activists are addressing this obstacle by demanding Charter review and showing that a review is legally required.

Earth Federation activists are lauding the Constitution for the Federation of Earth (i.e., the Earth Constitution) as the ideal replacement for the Charter. 

Yes, it is time for a new UN, o­ne that can do away with the current geopolitical war system and replace it with a global peace system.  The Earth Constitution is ready to go.

Dear fellow concerned citizens,


My world federalist colleagues and I talked to many European federalists while in Brussels. Despite their very busy schedules, they made time for us to discuss "The SF Promise." It was an encouraging trip, o­ne that I hope will ultimately make a difference.

World Federalists Seek Leadership from the European Union for a New UN

By Roger Kotila, Ph.D.


BRUSSELS, Belgium, June 6, 2016 The cobblestone streets have the feel of old Europe here at the home of the European Union, a collection of 28 nations that is considerably larger than the United States in both population and overall economic activity.

I am here in the EUs capital city with fellow world federalists from the US and Canada. Under the umbrella of Democratic World Federalists based in San Francisco, we are talking to European federalists about the necessity of creating a new UN by means of a review process found in the United Nations Charter what we are calling The San Francisco Promise.

The Promise, given at the original signing of the Charter in San Francisco, requires a review after ten years. The five permanent members of the Security Council (P-5) promised that such a review would be conducted, yet it has not happened. As a result the veto power given to the five nations (US, Russia, China, France, Great Britain) remains in force -- keeping the UN shamefully undemocratic.



The UN is not a world federation. This is why it has not lived up to its original task to end war. Old Europe, after suffering two devastating world wars which were the product of a now thoroughly discredited sovereign nation state system, changed to a partial federal union governing system which became the European Union this is the new Europe.

The EUs importance to world federalists is that there are many federalists in the European Parliament. As federalists, they understand why the UN has not been able to end the scourge of war. There have been over 250 wars since the signing of the UN Charter.

The UNs governing structure is too much like old Europe which suffered war after war.

Although the EU is currently in mild crisis mode, the 12 golden stars o­ne sees o­n EU flags show up seemingly everywhere. Brexit refers to a British referendum vote coming up soon to decide if the UK will remain, or leave, the EU. The potential loss of an EU member state has worried some European federalists, although it is unclear if Britain is more trouble than it is worth to the EU.

A far bigger problem is the multitude of refugees fleeing to Europe as a result of the wars in the Middle East a crisis primarily caused by Europes chief ally, the US (and NATO) which started the violent conflicts in the first place with its own version of terrorism the Pentagons shock and awe military invasion of Iraq, and other US/NATO covert or overt military operations in Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, and Ukraine.

It is my contention that the EUs crisis with refugees was brought about in large part because of the fatal flaws in the UN Charter which prevents it from doing its primary job preventing wars before they happen.



Ironically, Europe has put its hope for security with the US through its involvement with NATO a military alliance which could lead to the very war that the EU is trying to avoid. NATOs headquarters is here in Brussels. NATO has increasingly put itself at the borders of Russia making Moscow understandably suspicious of US/NATOs intentions and causing a military arms build-up.

If NATO is a dangerous choice for the peaceful security of the EU, what is the alternative? World federalists such as Einstein concluded that o­nly a world federal government world union with enforceable world law, is what is required. There is no shortcut.

The logical conclusion is that we need a new UN Charter if the goal is to end wars and to bring safety and security to the world as a whole, and to Europe in particular.



A world federalist colleague, Shahr-Yar Sharei, studied law at the University of Kent. Based upon his doctoral research into international law (or lack thereof) and the UN Charter, he has concluded that the UN is legally required to conduct a Charter review. As a consequence of his findings, he is in the process of setting up a new think tank the Center for United Nations Constitutional Research (CUNCR), to be located here in Brussels.

The vision of a new UN is long overdue. The present geopolitical system must be changed, or it will drag the world community (and the EU) down with it.



Will the EU, with a Parliament full of federalists, be willing to take the lead and use its resources and experience in federalism to help design a modern world constitution/charter so that military threats such as with NATO become a thing of the past?

World federalists know what the governing structure should look like. They know what is needed. The World Constitution and Parliament Association for example, anticipated that this day would come, and has waiting in the wings a model world federal constitution the Constitution for the Federation of Earth, also known as the Earth Constitution.


So will the EU join the campaign to fulfill The San Francisco Promise? Will they see the desperate need for a new United Nations and decide to act?

A New UN to Prevent the Sacrifice of Europe to the Nuclear Gods


Written by Dr. Roger Kotila

Monday, 23 May 2016


Would the US/NATO military establishment risk sacrificing Europe to the nuclear gods if a conventional armed conflict broke out with Russia and local North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) commanders believed that tactical nuclear weapons would be required to win? 

Europe faces the possibility of such a regional conflict. Tensions have risen. Russia is getting suspicious of US/NATOs intentions, feeling encircled as NATO expands militarily into Eastern Europe and the Ukraine. 

It seems unthinkable, but if a tactical nuclear war erupts, the European nations would be the o­nes sacrificed, not America, -- the United States lies thousands of ocean miles away

The world community watches in frustration as the United Nations, supposedly in existence to prevent wars, is unable to do its job. Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Ukraine, Libya, Yemen, and Palestine are all subject to violent military aggression with the vast majority of victims being civilians and families.
Could Europe be added to the list, a victim of its own involvement with NATO?

The EU already struggles with the multitudes of refugees fleeing the fighting in the Middle East, wars that the US/NATO or allies started in the first place, and which the UN was unable to prevent. 

The UN is stymied by its fatally flawed Charter. Despite the fact that the original purpose of the UN is to end the scourge of war, it has failed time and time again. While the UN has done much good, the world has seen over 250 wars since the Charter was signed. 

Despite reassurances by President Obama, nuclear disarmament is nowhere in sight. For US military contractors, present and future funding for nuclear weapons systems is full speed ahead. 

Despite committing the US to seek the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons, Obamas record o­n nuclear disarmament is dismal, having supported spending $1 trillion over the next 3 decades to modernize the US nuclear arsenal. (Cabasso, United for Peace & Justice, 5/22/16) 

A recent survey of the American public (Wall Street Journal, 5/21/16) asks Would We Drop the Bomb Again? Yes, according to the professors who did the study: When provoked, we dont seem to consider the use of nuclear weapons a taboo, and our commitment to the immunity of civilians from deliberate attack in wartime, even with vast casualties, is shallow. 

The US Congress refuses to admit the obvious fact that militarism and nuclear weaponry are a dead end.Moreover, they treat the UN as if it was of secondary importance, even though without a UN (or a new world organization) with the power to outlaw nukes and war, we will never be safe. 

Frustrated by the American governments obstructionism and its worship of all things military, a small contingent of NGO world federalists from the US and Canada is traveling to Brussels in early June, 2016 to meet with select members of the European Parliament.

Led by the NGO nonpartisan Democratic World Federalists based in San Francisco, an international campaign is being launched to demand a review of the UN Charter. Its called The San Francisco Promise and describes the fact that at the original signing of the Charter a review was promised, even written into the Charter itself, but never carried out. 

Currently the UN General Assembly (UNGA) is being foiled by the nuclear powers who are saying no to nuclear disarmament. But UNGAs Open Ended Working Group (OEWG) o­n nuclear disarmament is not taking no for an answer, and appears determined to find a way to ban nuclear weapons.

In Europe OEWG has information revealing that NATO has nukes in Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Turkey. According to documentation by the Federation of American Scientists (FAS),
these countries host from 160 200 nuclear weapons (OEWG Report, Vol. 2, No. 9, 4 May 2016). 

OEWGs efforts are vitally important but they remain stuck within the parameters of the outdated UN Charter.
The UN General Assembly must find a way to break free of the Charters restrictions that prevent the UN from ending the nuclear nightmare

World federalists like Einstein and many other top thinkers have concluded that the o­nly way to end the danger of nuclear annihilation is to form a democratic world federal union government with enforceable world law. These critical features are missing in the present UN Charter. 

That is why the Earth Constitution drafted by the World Constitution and Parliament Association takes o­n such importance. It is ready to go, designed to shut down the nuclear gods o­nce and for all. The nations and the world community must make the decision they want world peace more than they want a world in perpetual war. 

There is an urgent need to reverse the downward course of militarism that is destroying the Middle East and endangering the European Union.
The European Parliament could play a crucial role by supporting Charter Review. The Parliament could also challenge NATOs ever expanding military posture, a policy that is stirring up fears in both Russia and China and causing an arms build-up. 

UN Charter Review opens the door to compare the present Charter to the Earth Constitution. The Earth Constitution brings an inspired yet practical democratic governing structure that includes a democratically elected World Parliament, a well-designed judiciary system, and the opportunity for world union. 

Will the upcoming meetings in Brussels between world federalists and members of the European Parliament mark a turning point which ends the death spiral caused by misplaced faith in the nuclear gods?

Ukraine, NATO and more:

Time for the UN to look to the Earth Constitution?


Written by Dr. Roger Kotila

Sunday, 01 June 2014


The United Nations Charter seeks "to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war," but has not been able to live up to its rhetoric. 

From the UN's inception in 1945 in San Francisco world federalists warned that the UN's Charter was fatally flawed. Sure enough, geopolitical hotspots and war have erupted with regularity. 

The current crisis in the Ukraine is the latest example of UN helplessness. The elected government of the Ukraine was overthrown with covert help from the United States, and then Russia, fearful of encroachment by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, proceeded to annex Crimea. 

Politicians and the public are largely unaware that there is a potential solution to these dangerous geopolitical maneuverings that could spark a world war. The Earth Constitution is waiting. It is ready to go (

Ending the "scourge of war" has been out of reach for the UN. Weaker countries are routinely the victims of Bully nations who use covert operations, economic manipulation, and outright military aggression to control or overthrow governments.

The UN's defective Charter allows the leaders of the so-called "great" powers to toss international law aside, indeed to do almost anything at all, with impunity. The UN watched helplessly as the United States illegally invaded first Afghanistan, then Iraq. 

For the world community the leaders of bully nations are literally "above the law" as was seen in the brutal "shock and awe" attack o­n Iraq wherein the US president and the generals responsible for this illegal invasion were never prosecuted for their war crimes, including torture.

The UN has also been unable to prevent wars by proxy. For example, it could not prevent the upheaval in Syria supported by Saudi Arabia, the US, and Russia. Saudi Arabia has openly provided the insurgents with money and weapons in its campaign for regime change, ironical in view of the fact that Saudi Arabia itself is a dictatorship.

Israel's brutal attack o­n the Palestinians in Gaza and its o­ngoing silent war against them in the form of a blockade have left the Palestinians essentially imprisoned in Gaza. The UN cannot free them.

Israeli leaders have never been prosecuted for committing world crimes, nor have UN sanctions been applied because the US protects Israel from consequences by using its veto power in the UN Security Council. 

The UN has been overshadowed by US/NATO. The results have been disastrous for the countries invaded by this military alliance which ignores international law and makes its own rules, apparently motivated by the goal of world empire and for "energy security" which o­ne suspects means to satisfy the financial yearnings of private oil corporations. 

Targets of US/NATO assaults include Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya. The people see their homes and cities destroyed, including the infrastructure so that basics like water and electricity are barely available. Horrendous civil wars have resulted. 

Libya was targeted by the US/NATO and the dictator Muammar Khadafy deposed, yet the people are worse off than ever with the country devastated and in a state of anarchy. We see a similar fate for Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and soon, possibly the Ukraine. 

In the Ukraine the UN is unable to prevent the internal interference by the United States that helped cause the violent overthrow by neo-fascists of Ukraine's elected government. To complicate matters, US/NATO seeks a door into the Ukraine, a move that has caused Russian authorities serious alarm since the Ukraine lies o­n its border. 

Is US/NATO a threat to world peace?

The UN has been unable to restrain US/NATO expansion. The facts about NATO as revealed by Mahdi Nazemroaya in "The Globalization of NATO" are alarming. The US/NATO military alliance, he reports, is carrying out plans to militarily encircle both Russia and China. 

NATO's interest in the Ukraine along with the announcement by the US of its "pivot to Asia" seems to confirm Nazemroaya's analysis. Fear of encirclement caused Russia to annex Crimea, and spurred China to begin to increase its own military might. 

US/NATO actions appear so irresponsible and reckless that it is even conceivable that an attempt at regime change could be in the making to oust Russian President Vladimir Putin who is currently being demonized by the western press. 

One can reasonably conclude that NATO, basically a military alliance led by the US, threatens world peace because of its actions to expand worldwide, yet claims it o­nly seeks "security." But isn't that why we have the United Nations? 

It is easy to illustrate the UN's failures. We are living them everyday through the news, -- always a new geopolitical conflict or outrage of o­ne kind or another. Nations operate in a global war system. 

The Earth Constitution provides a global peace system. Disputes between nations are resolved without war (which is outlawed). Conflicts are resolved peacefully through adjudication in specialized world courts, or by a democratically elected World Parliament -- lacking in the UN structure. 

A core problem is that the UN cannot override the decisions of the undemocratic UN Security Council with its five permanent veto members who use the veto to protect themselves and their allies no matter what wrong they have committed. The United States, Russia, and China have most often abused this veto power. 

The public knows little about the UN's real problems which go back to its unsatisfactory Charter. They know even less about the Earth Constitution, drafted by the World Constitution and Parliament Association in order to have a constructive alternative to the UN, o­ne that has the potential to actually end war and the lawless anarchy which so undermines a civilized society. 

Professor Glen T. Martin, author of "World Revolution Through World Law," has described the Earth Constitution as the "most important document" of the 20th and 21st centuries. It is designed to accomplish what the UN has been unable to do. 

The Earth Constitution offers a solution to the nightmare of war and nuclear weapons. Its design is for nonmilitary government both at the global and national levels, of critical importance because military power can never bring true security or peace, a lesson not understood by the US/NATO. 

The o­nly realistic goal for a safe and secure world must be world union. We must federate. The nations must form a world federation that truly represents the global community. There must be enforceable world law in league with a democratically elected world parliament. There is no shortcut. 

It is time for the UN and the peoples of the world to look to the Earth Constitution.

Dr. Leo Semashko, The GPS Editor in Chief note. This excellent article is written in the spirit of the Global Peace Science (GPS: see this article in GPS Chapter 8.19, p.299-301: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=606) and coincides with it in assessment of the UN and the USA/NATO military alliance as the main threat to global peace. The offered alternative - "Earth Constitution" is absolutely necessary tool for the peaceful world order. But it is, in our opinion, will not be work, touching o­nly the governments and not covering the population in the major actors of global peace - SPHERONS discovered in GPS (see chapters 1 and 2). GHA offers jointly to modify the Constitution, adding to it the structural idea of SPHERONS, which constitute global social structure, provide the most correct division of the population in democracy and thus actualize the most profound and full social foundation for Earth Constitution. Through SPHERONS it receives the status of "the basic law of republic" by Montesquieu, which is ignored the traditional militaristic democracy (see Chapter 8.9.).
