American warmongers need not worry about this. They could launch missiles at Russia, and claim that the missiles were Israeli. That way the Russians would not defend themselves.

When will China top the US as the world’s largest economy?

The Chinese real economy surpassed the US real economy years ago. That’s why the American government is attacking Chinese companies like Huawei.

The London-based Economic and Business Research Center (CEBR) falsely claims that the US budget deficit is a problem. Therefore USA must reduce its federal deficit by eliminating social programs, in order to remain competitive with China.

Critics of Syria withdrawal fueled rise of ISIS

“If the mission was to destroy ISIS, then why did ISIS rise in the first place? And why was the jihadist organization still festering right in the midst of the U.S. military occupation?”

Um…because the USA and Saudis created, armed and funded ISIS™ in the first place? Along with Al Qaeda, plus the “white helmets” head-choppers, etc.

Because she has a pet eagle? Wow.

Tale of a number-one cold-blooded bastard

Cheney and Bush are now admired and adored, thanks to Trump derangement syndrome. I remember vomiting up my lunch on 3 Nov 2017 when former leftist Keith Olberman appeared on The View and said he owed a huge apology to Bush and Cheney. On the show, Olbermann groveled to John McCain’s obese daughter Megan, saying, “My favorite person in politics in the 21st century is your father.” Olberman has been whining about Trump, and groveling to warmongers ever since then.

Incidentally, regarding that new movie Vice who would want to sit through it, let alone pay to see it? An old, bald, and ultra-corrupt fat man? That’s entertainment?

There are credible rumors that Trump’s “withdrawal” from Syria and Afghanistan is actually a plan to give the wars to Trump’s personal friend Erik Prince and his private army known as “Academi” (formerly Xe Services, formerly Blackwater).

Erik Prince (brother of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos) has been pushing for this privatization since Trump was elected. Private mercenaries are unaccountable, and are generally not followed by the corporate news outlets.
