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. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

US-EU sanctions at work....



And Europe is buying Russian energy from China at hefty price increases.

How about those sanctions on Russia?

Working like a charm, but for whom? 

All those hundreds of years of US-European exploitation of the global south is coming back to haunt them.

Blow-back, Karma, boomerang, chickens coming home to roost - call it what you wish.

It's real.

Arrogance and denial are the Achilles heel of the west.

The neo-cons who are running this shit-show of sanctions and attempting regime change in Moscow and Beijing are finding their strategy is blowing up in their faces. They have no alternative and can't back down so they press onward into chaos. They don't mind if the working and poor people of the world suffer - the neo-cons just see them as superfluous populations anyway. Not wanted, not needed. Let them suffer.

The rich elites will be taken care of - they have few worries. Except they are afraid the public just might turn on them.

It's good to see some people across Europe rising up in protest in recent days.

Will it be enough? Is it too late? Time will tell.

Here in the US most people (especially the loyal Democrats) are still sleep-walking. After all, their favorite party is in power and will take care of them....right?

(I heard from one friend in Florida that the only protests underway in her local community were connected to the upcoming November elections. One more sign how the Dems steer their loyalists into electoral work rather than work on issues that really matter to the nation and the world.)

I'll be on the street on Thursday and Friday holding my protest sign. It is the least I can do under these circumstances. Someone just might take notice....

Best of luck.
