Regarding the U.S. attack on Europe, the situation with Iran and Russia is only the tip of the iceberg.

For example, the Justice for Uncompensated Survivors Act was unanimously passed by the U.S. Senate on 2 Dec 2017, and then unanimously passed by the U.S House on 24 April 2018, and then signed into law by Trump on 9 May 2018.

The law requires the U.S. State Department to give regular reports to Congress about which European government are continuing to pay billions of euros to the Jewish descendants of “holocaust™ survivors,” and which countries are failing to pay.

Poland feels it should not have to pay the Jews, since the occupying Germans (allegedly) perpetrated the holocaust.™

Israel says all non-Jews must pay, since all non-Jews are guilty.

Now Trump says he is thinking about cancelling the summit meeting with Kim of North Korea. John Bolton is talking about what Bolton calls the “Libya option” (first lie to them so that they voluntarily lower their defenses, and then destroy them).

With so much U.S. lies and treachery, will Europe break away from the U.S. Empire? Or will Europe continue to submit?

The answer, as always, will depend on what Europe’s rich oligarchs decide is in their best interests.

“John Bolton is talking about what Bolton calls the “Libya option”

He has referred to the Libya deal “of 2003-2004” ie the Bush2 admin deal... not anything the Obama people put together.... that Bush2 deal was working ....

As usual, the US made a deal and then did not follow through on it. NK is well aware that the US cannot be trusted to honor its word.

Disarmament of Libya

Tom you’re doing it again... when ever it goes bad under Democrats it’s “the US!” ... when it goes bad under GOP it’s “the GOP!” ...

You consistently exhibit this bias....

The original deal the Bush2 people put together at the start of the GWOT withLibya was working... it went south under the Obama people...

May have had something to do with Libya’s gender/racial/LGBT identity policies... same with Russia....

“Pussy Riot is a Russian feminist protest punk rock group based in Moscow. Founded in August 2011, it had a variable membership of approximately 11 women [1] ranging in age from about 20 to 33 (as of 2012).[2] The group staged unauthorized provocative guerrilla performances in public places, performances that were filmed as music videos and posted on the Internet.[3] The collective’s lyrical themes included feminism, LGBT rights, and opposition to Russian President Vladimir Putin,”

Ambassador Chris Stevens was gay, etc....

The whole thing is a big LGBT female racial thing that the Obama people created... Libya and Russia are probably all bisexuals trying to suppress the homo by being all anti-LGBT all the time...

Trump is going in another direction now we actually have elections... the LGBT/gender/racial stuff should die down now.... Trump is focused on business and deal making...

Pope:

Pope Francis tells gay man: 'God made you like that and loves you like that'

What are you talking about?

Clinton broke the promise that was given Gorbachev not to expand NATO eastward.

W unilaterally withdrew from the ABM treaty and the United Nations Convention against Torture (UNCAT), also a treaty.

Obama did not deliver on the deal Bush made with Gaddafi and attacked Libya, and did nothing when the US military blew out the the deal Kerry struck with Russia over Syria

DJT unilaterally withdrew from JCPOA.

This is was bipartisan, and it can be described as the US not honoring its word almost as a matter of course.

What? "The Obama people" created feminism, and the LGBT movement and the export of Western ultra-liberalism? Really?

Pope Francis is apparently agreeing with the genetic basis of gender preference, as in — science.

The RCC accepted the scientific basis of modern cosmology, and evolutionary theory a while ago, for example.

.... to please their modern day flock. In the sanctum live on ‘One Creator’, ‘Three Regents’, ‘Seven Spirits before the Throne of God’, all doctrines inherited from the ancient Brahmins and disfigured in the transition, passed down through the Egyptians and Chaldeans, preserved in faith in every religious tradition ever existed on the planet, from the Chinese to the Zoroastrians – and no one can quite say why?

While we wait for science to unveil to us where an atom, each one absolutely unique, comes from (never mind the universe of atoms); whence Life and Consciousness? How these atoms intelligently arrange themselves in the most fortuitous of compositions, create amazing energy fields of mind and consciousness, to produce a Mozart or De Vinci (art majors) - or a raving psychotic. And others, the very same atoms, remain just a rock. In Space which is Absolute.

Oh Padre, pour me a drink ....

""The Obama people" created feminism, and the LGBT movement"

ok maybe not 'created' it from scratch but they indeed pushed it harder than any admin before and even internationally... look at Samantha Power's initiatives at the UN...

The dominant theme of the whole Obama 8 years is gender/racial/LGBT identity stuff... that is the Obama legacy and what Hillary wanted to continue with her as the female gender President... "It's our turn..." with 'our' being female/women identity...

this was the basis for every decision in that admin... they were zealous about it apparently to the point of criminality in their campaign against Trump...

You anti-war biased guys are always like "ooohhh! how can Obama deploy the military! ohhhhh!" well Obama was happy to deploy the military with LGBT people now among the ranks....

Trump has different priorities... they seem to be as you say related to material economic interests... "deals!" etc..

We have elections here not an "oligarchy!" as you put it so the policies are potentially going to change and perhaps radically every 4 or 8 years with the term limits...

The world's tyrants are going to have to deal with it too f-ing bad...
