    Seems like it started off with us vs China. Now it's gone global. The important part is that if it's too expensive to buy orange juice from USA then they get it from Brazil and same goes for other products. This in turn would cripple America. This tied in with Russia banking out it's bonds with America freeing it's money shows other super powers are bailing out ahead of something that is big to come.

    Turkey being rejected the new f35 fighter planes because of buying Russian new s400 defence missile.

    Brexit in the UK and Europe being pissed.

    WTO falling apart.

    As you know we live in a world when each nation is interconnected as evident in the bubble crash of 2008 and the way America is going it means only bad news for the rest of us.

    Stop bedwetting. It's not as though there's a ship full of nuclear weapons headed for Cuba or anything. We've survived worse in the past.

    Life in the EU is hunky dory.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    interesting just watching that ****er Farage on Daily Politics just and the connect between him, Trump, Bannon and rise of the far right across Europe, whilst Bannon is touring Europe whipping up nationalist lies wherever he goes.


    It does begin to look like this stuff is orchestrated at a global level so maybe war is inevitable.

    War is a good way to suppress the masses, build up patriotic fervour, increase hatred of all things foreign, and most of all, it helps justify massive defence spending, while reducing help for citizens.

    Sure, a few people die, but they don’t matter if it helps the money flow in the right direction.

    Nothing like a good "hate".

    Two minutes of hate

    A hideous ecstasy of fear and vindictiveness, a desire to kill, to torture, to smash faces in with a sledge hammer, seemed to flow through the whole group of people like an electric current, turning one even against one's will into a grimacing, screaming lunatic.
