If this ended up being the year of the first North Korean nuclear attack or the rise of a neo-Communist insurgency in the West or an all-out cyberwar between major powers or a fake alien invasion, who would even be surprised at this point? We've lost our sense of normal. There is only chaos.
we must never lose sight of the fact that this argument is not about accounting procedures or statistics or dollars and cents. It is about the blood of innocent men, women and children who are being slaughtered in the name of a false narrative based on lies and perpetuated by liars.
...it’s hardly surprising that a company chaired by Erik “We Need A New Phoenix Program” “CIA Contractor” “Trump Advisor” Prince is pushing to start a military contracting relationship with a major foreign power.
The North Korean nuclear dance has sometimes been perceived as a type of harmless parochial hoedown.... But with every new spin around the floor, the dance gets more serious.
Indeed, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un has been photographed posing with what appears to be a genuine miniaturized nuclear warhead for ballistic missiles.
But whatever damage the individual missiles may have inflicted in Syria, they have the potential to inflict even greater damage in the arena of global geopolitics. In this regard’s, Russia’s response has been of particular interest.
As it turns out, the armada was 3,500 miles away from Korea and heading in the exact opposite direction when the MSM started flipping its lid...
In reality, like any other geopolitical bombshell there may be one specific incident that sparks the powder keg,... but there are a number of different factors that compel each of the players at the table to act for their own interests.
...the Afghan war is not about protecting America's interests or ridding the world of terrorists, and the war on drugs is not about helping to end the opioid crisis.
The question is, what is the answer? Is the US ever going to be comfy with a nuclear North? Nope. Yet they too know that if we go in, it’s going to be uglier than most imagine.
...this negotiation with the Taliban is born of desperation, not principle, and the US Empire has painted itself into a corner in Afghanistan that no amount of dollar bills is going to get them out of.
