It seems to take eons for Americans to understand what is more than obvious to the rest of the world (and not veiled in capitalist neo-con word-doobage designed to hail a down-going empire, and paint shades of glory, where there really is only shame that could be painted).

And this happens with the unconscious help of all their vassal nations "deep asleep" in their own neo-liberal black plague.

Capitalism is killing lives while it is filling singular pockets. From the beginning to the end. Only thing, towards the end, it'll eat itself completely. And this has begun to happen everywhere. A true incarnation of perversity and perversion (i.e. self-destruction) in the truest form: Neo-liberalism, paired with neo-conservatism in it's worst form. All hail to their inventors, the US of A!

A failed nation has (hundreds of) thousands of tent-dwellers and uninsured heroes, performing essentially needful surgery on themselves when they have to... plus cleaning the better offs' garbage for edibles and wearables (not what you think)...

Home of the poor and downtrodden!

And YES - there are those claiming this be PUTIN - closing their eyes to the truth on the streets and in the country. The blind leading the blind so to speak... gaslighting away from their shortcomings to other nations' problems - or throwing smoke screens of important (!) issues to the public, like a Royal family member photo-shopping their own image. Or the Oscars! Sorry, gotta puke again.......

Let me puke, SIr, please!

There was someone speaking such truths - and he's still being crucified every day, even after two thousand years.

(Who feels it knows it, Lord.)

Neocon Iraq war architects want a redo in Gaza
Post-conflict plan would put Western mercenaries and Israel military into the mix, with handpicked countries in charge of a governing ‘Trust’

Several key architects of the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq 21 years ago are presenting a plan for rebuilding and “de-radicalizing” the surviving population of Gaza, while ensuring that Israel retains “freedom of action” to continue operations against Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

The plan, which was published as a report Thursday by the hard-line neo-conservative Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, or JINSA, and the Vandenberg Coalition, is calling for the creation of a private entity, the “International Trust for Gaza Relief and Reconstruction” to be led by “a group of Arab countries such as Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates” and “supported by the United States and other nations.”

With regard to Palestinian participation, the report by the “Gaza Futures Task Force,” envisages an advisory board “composed primarily of non-Hamas Gazans from Gaza, the West Bank, and diaspora.” In addition, the Palestinian Authority, which is based on the West Bank, “should be consulted in, and publicly bless,” the creation of the Trust while itself undergoing a process of “revamping.”

This is a familiar trope for you to trot out, but it seems absurdly contradictory on the face of it. Laws—international or otherwise—are rules.

Accuse the US of hypocrisy all you like but that doesn't invalidate the concept, because the alternative to a rules-based order is a power-based order. We see this writ large by the authoritarian despots you relentlessly cheerlead for: they do what they like to whom they please because they can, and we should just let them. Empowering those they do it to is warmongering because it prolongs their agony. They should just surrender and accept their fates.

Funny, attacking them in the first place isn't warmongering, it's totally legitimate. Because...history. Or something.

You'll respond to this (if you do at all) with a pithy one-liner or yet another cut&paste screed, but it would be interesting to know how you square these circles in your own head. Not some RT mouthpiece's head, not some convoluted digression flinging rhetorical dust in the air, just explain how you want nations to interact with each other. 

Lazy8,  I am trying to figure out the difference between your approach to public policy and that of a sack full of rank and file MAGA Republicans; I do not see it.  

Anti-data, science and expertise.   Prone to 'us versus them' stereotypes and arguments.  

No fundamental respect for well-defined and secure economic property rights.   Not much interest in this nebulous concept of the 'right to self-determination'.

Biden wants to put the US on permanent war footing
The new 'defense industrial strategy' is a boon for the arms makers, not so much for regular Americans
The Biden administration is supersizing the defense industry to meet foreign arms obligations instead of making tradeoffs essential to any effective budget. Its new National Defense Industrial Strategy lays out a plan to “catalyze generational change” of the defense industrial base and to “meet the strategic moment” — one rhetorically dominated by competition with China, but punctuated by U.S. support for Ukraine’s fight against Russia and Israel’s military campaign in Gaza.

Instead of reevaluating its maximalist national security strategy, the Biden administration is doubling down. It is proposing a generation of investment to expand an arms industry that, overall, fails to meet cost, schedule, and performance standards. And if its strategy is any indication, the administration has no vision for how to eventually reduce U.S. military industrial capacity.

I was gonna post the same thing just now!
