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

U.S. & South Korea: Fading warmonger prez poll numbers



Thirty-three percent of Americans approve of US President Joe Biden's handling of the conflict between Palestinian movement Hamas and Israel in the Gaza Strip, the lowest level recorded in a CBS News/YouGov survey since the start of the hostilities.

This is down from 44% of Americans who approved of Biden's approach to the conflict last October and 38% this February, according to the poll released on Sunday and conducted before Iran's drone and missile attack on Israel.

The survey also found that the share of those who believe the United States should send weapons to Israel dropped to 40% from 48% in October 2023.

Meanwhile, 66% of Americans who believe that things in the country are going badly point to the economy as the reason, more than wars and other developments abroad (47%). Moreover, 72% of those sampled said the state of domestic politics was to blame. 

The approval rating of South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol has dropped to the lowest level of 32.6% since October 2023 after the main opposition bloc won a landslide victory in the general elections last week, the Yonhap news agency reported on Monday, citing a poll conducted by Seoul-based company Realmeter.

The survey found that the positive assessment of Yoon's job performance declined by 4.7 percentage points week-on-week, while public disapproval rose by 4.1 percentage points and was expressed by 63.6% of those surveyed, Yonhap reported. 

Last week, the ruling People Power Party (PPP) and its satellite People Future Party won a total of 108 seats in the parliament, while the opposition Democratic Party and its satellite Democratic United Party won 175 of the 300 seats. 


These are all good signs for peace. Biden and South Korea's Yoon are working feverishly to ramp up military spending and war games aimed at China. That of course means more cuts in social spending and for clean energy. 

The more people become disillusioned with these two agents of doom, the better. 

Now we just hope these public expressions of doubt spread to other US puppets in the region - the Philippines, Japan, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand and more.
