Global Reign of Chaos Leaves Record 65 Million People Displaced



Endless wars breed displaced people, breed civil unrest, breed terrorism. And so it goes:
U.N. says 65 million people displaced in 2015, a new record, The Mainichi, June 20, 2016 (Mainichi Japan), http://mainichi.jp/english/articles/20160620/p2g/00m/0in/068000c

GENEVA (AP) -- The U.N. refugee agency says persecution and conflict in places like Syria and Afghanistan raised the total number of refugees and internally displaced people worldwide to a record 65.3 million at the end of last year.

The previous year, 2014, had already seen the highest number of refugees worldwide since World War II, with 60 million displaced people....
US neoconservative policy in the Middle East has played a significant role in producing this global chaos:

  1. The neoliberal politicians make it harder for dispossessed citizens here and people displaced that end up here.

    The prison industrial state, homelessness, banking bailouts. Mass discriminatory unemployment, and mass homelessness caused are caused by the policies of neoliberal crooks here. Those same neoliberals happen to also to have the neoconservative views that have displaced so many people internationally.

    Trump says he will make this country great again! That means to him beefing up the us military industrial complex. It also means continuing neoliberal policies here.

    We now only have the choice between two neoliberal, neoconservative candidates for president. They both are also for continuing the nuclear madness, is Trump and Clinton.

  3. There are more mundane things people can do to stop nuclear. Divest of all investments or pensions that support nuclear power and continued nuclear weapons development.

  4. I agree with brexit by the way. Hope Cameron does not come back. He said he would leave in 3 months under certain conditions.
