French Department of War visits this blog


This April 2017 video says about itself:

On Thursday, the US military dropped its so-called Mother Af All Bombs on a remote town in eastern Afghanistan, near the Pakistani border.

… It is believed to be the most powerful non-nuclear bomb dropped by the US in any battlefield.

And on Saturday, a US government agency announced the successful test of a mock nuclear bomb in Nevada. It is part of an effort to upgrade one of the nuclear weapons that has been in the US arsenal for decades.

Are America’s military actions fuelling an increase in global defence spending? Countries around the world are increasing their defence spending.

The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute says the US is still the biggest spender when it comes to its military. … Trillions of dollars are spent every year to get the latest and most advanced military hardware.

But critics say that is leading to an arms race that will have long-term consequences.

Presenter: Laura Kyle

Guests: Oubai Shahbandar – Military Analyst who served as Middle East Foreign Affairs Specialist under three U-S Secretaries of Defence at the Pentagon.

Sergey Strokan – Political Analyst and Columnist at the Russian newspaper Kommersant.

Tariq Rauf – a Nuclear Arms Control Specialist.

WordPress stats say that today, there have several times been visits to Dear Kitty. Some blog from the French Ministry of the Armed Forces.

Welcome to this blog! I hope that all governmental Departments of War (now mostly called euphemistically ‘Defence’) in the world will visit this blog. And learn from it that all these expensive useless arms races and all those bloody wars should stop, and that there should be peace.

So far, the only country about which I know that my blog is censored is NATO country Turkey. So, it is good to see that, though there are Internet censorship plans in that other NATO country France, at least Department of War employees can still read Dear Kitty. Some blog.
