The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

Old friends talking politics....

 

Regis Tremblay, originally from Maine, now lives in Yalta, Crimea, Russia.

I worked with Regis for many years here in Maine until his move to Crimea earlier this year.  He's very happy about being there.  He recently fell and broke his hip and needed a replacement operation.  He got a real taste of the Russian medical system.  It cost him $8,000 while in the US such an operation could run up to $45,000 or more.  

In this video we talk about the recent elections here in the US and Maine as well as the growing tension between the US and Russia.  We additionally talked about the current US drive to 'control and dominate' space.

Lastly we spoke about the ascendancy of Russia, China, Iran and other nations in what is fast becoming a multi-polar world.  The days of US (and western) military and economic domination are fading.  Regis asked about the implications - will there be war between the US and the Russian-Chinese alliance?

We ended with the deep reality of climate crisis and how the Biden administration (a total puppet for corporate oligarchs) will do little to help deal with this colossal problem. Washington talks about plans to be carbon neutral by 2050 - but that is way too late.
