At CCI, we see the need and possibility for changing this situation. When real people in large numbers get involved, amazing things begin to happen. Join us! Let's help reduce the tensions existing today between the two Superpowers.
Read below and ask yourself these questions: Does it benefit our country to deliberately be hostile to Russia whose nuclear weapons are as numerous as ours? Where is the logic in this direction? What will it accomplish? Is the end game to pursue this policy of hostility, surrounding Russia’s borders with missiles and troops (as it is now) until war is finally triggered? Do these senators believe that such a war would remain non-nuclear? Do they not remember the fates of Napoleon and Hitler who tried to conquer Russia? Have they not heeded Russia’s clear warnings? What is behind all of this?
Are the D.C. policy makers so fearful that they will lose power in a multi-polar world that they will risk the lives of all Americans to prevent this from happening? How far will they go with their “Full Spectrum Dominance” theories? Have they talked up their own propaganda until they believe it is true? Has the rubicon already been passed? Let us hope not!
What must we citizens do to demand a change in direction of both Republican and Democratic congress members who have the combined power to vote in these continuing insane pieces of legislation?
Send your ideas! We will work them into a medley of enlightened actions to inform American citizens of the risks and options we have to stop these nonsense pieces of legislation in their tracks. Friends, as Ed Snowden said two years ago, “There are more of us than there are of them!” Numbers count when people of conscience come together to act in their own interests.
This is not a partisan issue. For this grave issue, it doesn’t matter who you voted for.
If we don’t solve this ultimate issue, other important issues can be blown into oblivion in a 30-minute exchange of warheads.
At this juncture in our public lives, Americans of all persuasions must become conversant regarding (a) the history and relationship between Russia and America, (b) problems in our present-day democracy and (c)–if we survive this period–what kind of nation we want to build in the future.

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Agrees to Be Hostile Toward Russia
Bipartisan Consensus on New Sanctions, Need for New Hearings
There is a lot of political rancor in the Senate these days, but the Senate Foreign Relations Committee has found something everybody can get behind: a general anti-Russian sentiment, and the intention to take some more actions against the Russian government.
The Chinese billionaire tells it like he sees it at the World Economic Forum. Don’t miss –– we should take notice. Others don’t see us as we see ourselves.
Nobody ‘stealing’ your jobs, you spend too much on wars, Alibaba founder tells US
The Chinese business magnate earlier in January met with US President-elect Donald Trump, who has bemoaned the loss of American industry and jobs due to the outsourcing of labor to countries like Mexico and China. Ma, however, has a different view of what is behind the US economic decline.
“Over the past thirty years, the Americans had thirteen wars spending 40.2 trillion dollars,” said Ma, speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos. “What if they spent a part of that money on building up the infrastructure, helping the white-collar and the blue-collar workers? No matter how strategically good it is, you’re supposed to spend money on your own people.”
