U.S. War on Terror generated karmic whiplash

Back in the ’70s and ’80s, when I was a “violent peace activist” and the cold war featured the mutually MAD United States and the Soviet Union, I noticed this odd fact: the initials of the one, U.S., happened to be the mirror image of the initials for the other, S.U.

What a convoluted history we have endured since then! The U.S. morphing into our fearful image of the old S.U. as U.S. whistleblower Snowden finds refuge in Russia, and the post-9/11 endless, corporatized, and very-very-profitable-for-the-1% “War on Terror” now turned on our own “homeland.”
