Russian Today news is carrying a number of stories about the bellicosity between the US and North Korea since this is right on Russia’s eastern flank. Since the US Congress, US media fake news propaganda machines and now Trump joining these to howl at the moon, the noise level is deafening…and China issues warnings for everyone to shut up.
A fair number of interested parties in the Middle East are calling for the US to bag it, too. The US is stuck out on this limb: NATO nations leeching off the US and Saudi Arabia and above all, Israel, want the US to smash Syria and Iraq and other pesky countries into a putrid, bloody mess so the power of all these hanger-on countries will increase while the US goes bankrupt.
Why on earth are we fighting? I remember the fight over Kuwait: the Kuwaiti government re-emburst the US for that little limited war. Since then, we have paid through the nose for one war after another and none of these benefited us or the victims in any way, shape or form.
The Russians have given up on courting US politicians. They now will go back to making fun of us and kicking us in the shins and we deserve this: Tillerson backs down on ultimatum mission to Russia — RT Op-Edge
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, nicknamed T-Rex, was in Moscow this week roaring with an ultimatum and threats of isolating Russia. After hours of intense talks, the American meekly quit the Russian capital, more like a wounded vegetable-munching sauropod.
Yes, great diplomacy. So far, every one of our political ‘leaders’ and their buddies/owners/tormentors, the Bilderberg gang, has been a laugh riot. They are stupid, inept and produce nothing useful for US tax payers. Goodie gum drops, we get to pay for all of Eastern Europe’s military/financial needs, too!
What a wonderful…we are going bankrupt! How stupid is this? What do we get from this? Nothing! And now, thanks to the leaders in Europe, these former Russian satellite states are moving back to Moscow for protection from being forced to host millions of angry Muslim males of fighting age that the Bilderberg leaders want to force into an invasion.
This weird demand baffles me. Don’t these clowns know anything about the lat 500 years of history in Eastern Europe? Like, the Muslim armies invading? The Battle at the Gates of Vienna and all that? What the hell?
Australia is sleepwalking into confrontation with China — RT Op-Edge warns yet another country about the obvious dangers of sticking one’s nose where it might get punched.
The United States is at a critical moment. Having exported its all-powerful manufacturing base, run down its industry and reduced millions of its once-hopeful people to poverty, the principal American power today is brute force. When Donald Trump launched his missile attack on Syria – following his bombing of a mosque and a school – he was having dinner in Florida with the President of China, Xi Jinping.
China has long received this message. In its rise as the world’s biggest trader and manufacturer, China has been encircled by about 400 US military bases – a provocation described by a former Pentagon strategist as “a perfect noose.”
This is not Trump’s doing. In 2011, President Barack Obama flew to Australia to declare, in an address to parliament, what became known as the “pivot to Asia”: the biggest build-up of US air and naval forces in the Asia-Pacific region since the Second World War. The target was China. America had a new and entirely unnecessary enemy. Today, low-draft US warships, missiles, bombers, drones operate on China’s doorstep.
And this ‘noose of bases’ isn’t a power point, it is our weakness. China is big, united, has industries and remembers the past invasions and is very paranoid.
The US is fractured, being heavily invaded by illegal aliens who openly wave foreign flags and talk about dismembering the nation by force, we have industrial cities that are in violent chaos and a disaster socially and politically, cancer sores that are spreading poison, killing the host.
And we are deep in debt, Obama doubled it, Bush Jr. made it huge, too. And so how ‘strong’ are we? A hollow giant wasting millions of dollars of weapons to knock off a few dozen ‘terrorists’ who are replaced within minutes with even angrier ‘terrorists’ determined to destroy and bankrupt America.
This is not a position of strength, there is a name: overstretched, over expanded, ripe for collapse. I looked at Japanese news to see how upset they are about what is going on. NOT. Nope, they are discussing how to keep the US trapped doing stupid things for Japan! So they plan to open a few factories in the US to keep the US from figuring out, the Japanese believe in one way trade.
Japan should use U.S. economic talks to boost investment: gov’t adviser ‹ Japan Today: the news in Japan is mainly about business, as usual. Low down on the scale is the warmongering between North Korea and the US/Japan/South Korea military machine.
Japanese companies should use the U.S.-Japan economic dialogue as an opportunity to boost investment in factories in the United States and protect market share, a Japanese government adviser says.
Japan should also welcome any opportunity to negotiate a two-way free trade deal to improve relations with one of its most important economic partners, said Motoshige Ito, a member of the government’s top advisory panel on economics.
I know how they will ‘negotiate’. It will be glacially slow. They will make verbal promises that won’t happen. There will be endless excuses. Then we get a new President and it all starts all over again.
A waste of time. Will our ‘leaders’ figure this out at last? It will amaze me if they do. So far, the ability to learn from past errors is vanishingly small.
