FleetWeek2016Sailors from the USS Bainbridge, docked in Brooklyn, enjoyed time-off in the East Village last evening during Fleet Week. On this Memorial Day, Americans recall the lives of their fellow citizens destroyed by feckless presidents (going back to William McKinley), who took the country into unjust wars in the service of plunder, exploitation, and domination of other countries. The result of 120 years of ‘manifest destiny,’ is not a flourishing democracy but rather a bankrupt and malevolent state — now looking to escalate wars with Russia and China.
