Unless by some form of luck Kim Jong Whateverthisoneis takes his lesbian haircut and goes home, but I don't see that as overly likely. Maybe Trump has a grown up on staff he can refer to who actually knows what the fuck they're doing.


Besides the ones kissing his fat disgusting ass and sucking their own cocks? :)

Exclusive: The chaos behind the scenes of Fox News' now-retracted Seth Rich story

The case of when one of their own "fake news" stories blows up in their face. By no means is it the worst thing Fox News has ever done but I hope those remoresless fuckers pay out the nose for making Seth Rich's family suffer.

He'll soon be on Fox News joining the Tucker Carlson-Sean Hannity "Blame Hillary/Obama/Trump is totes awesomesauce!" circle jerk, already in progress.

The scary part is that the hair doesn't look out of place at all.

Australia's PM said today we will support the US in any conflict with North Korea due to the ANZUS treaty. It's funny how many treaties we've signed that we blatantly ignore (human rights, refugees, climate change & environment...), but this one, this is the one he wants to uphold?

If Russia and/or China aren't on board with any attack, Australia opens itself up to being the frontline of attack.

Pure stupidity. GlobalResearch.ca has some great articles about this going at the moment.

hasn't AUS kept faith with the US dating back to their help in WW2 when they were left open to attack from Japan because the UK had all their troops in north Africa defending the Suez canal? long history there.

The UK was defending Hong Kong (with Canadian troops as well), but of course they lost there and got taken prisoner. Singapore also.

And they waged a long campaign in Burma - UK and Indian troops.

Of course Australia was involved in all this too, but it was a big theatre of war, going from Hawaii to the edge of India.

Of course, the UK prioritized the war against Germany - everybody did except China. They did not" abandon" Australia to the Japanese - they were stretched as thin as they could be.

But Australia was involved with the US efforts more, because of the battles in the Phillipines leading directly to the battles in neighbouring New Guinea.

It's the lame way they act as a US sidekick more recently *gough gough* which is a problem.

BTW, China made a fairly clear and important statement on this issue:

wasn't implying that they abandoned Australia, though I know apparently some people see it that way. i imagine countless factors went into the strategic deployments of the truth, not least of all that losing control of the Suez canal to the Germans would mean having to travel all the way around Africa to get their troops to Australia in support in the first place, was just suggesting it as a historic reason for the continuation of the treaty.

Apparently Trump is implying that the U.S. might take military action against Venezuela because reasons. Does he have any hotels there?

The impeachment and removal of this walking taint can't happen soon enough. Fucking hell.

And Hillary was the "war hawk" every conservative was shouting from the rooftops about.

Good job! :stupider:

Brutal accuracy here - https://www.facebook.com/TheHamptonInst ... 84/?type=3

Quote:
The US has 800 military bases in 63 countries worldwide, and military personnel presently active in 156 countries.

The US has been at war or in a military conflict for 224 of its 241 years in existence.

The US defense budget is over $610 billion yearly, which is higher than the defense budgets of the next 8 countries combined: China (215), Russia (69), Saudi Arabia (63), UK (48), France (55), India (55), Japan (46), and Germany (41).

The US is the only country that has ever dropped a nuclear bomb on a population, killing about 200,000 people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

A December 2013 WIN/Gallup poll asked 67,806 respondents from 65 countries, "Which country do you think is the greatest threat to peace in the world today?" 24% of respondents said the US. The next highest perceived threat was Pakistan at 8%. 5% believed North Korea was the greatest threat.

The US has 6,800 nuclear armaments.
North Korea has less than 10.

The US has overthrown or attempted to overthrow 57 foreign governments since WW2.

North Korea has overthrown or attempted to overthrow 0 foreign governments since 1953.

About sums up the "conflict."

Dude I just don't want the fucking world to end. You'll be the dipshit arguing over the ashes about who's fault it is. It doesn't matter who's fucking fault it is, this has to be stopped.
