Re: End of the INF & consequences

What's the difference if their missiles are 10-12 minutes from Washington vs. 30 minutes or however long it takes them to go from launch sites in Russia over the North Pole? The Americans would die twenty minutes later, so what?

Re: Sell Montana to Canada

Either way, the U.S. should throw in the Northwest Angle of Minnesota and Point Roberts, Washington into the bargain, since they're two towns that aren't connected by land to the rest of the supposedly contiguous United States, but only to Canada.

Re: A parable about wealth

According to Max Weber, the Protestant ethic is why North Europe and North America have done better than South Europe and South America. So you come from a part of the world where the people are bums, sorry I mean, less productive. The most important thing to point out is that virtues are the cause...

Re: Re:just in case?

Convince me by identifying the connecting link! As Sertorio rightfully pointed out, this was Eisenhower's warning, not some Alex Jones type figure. Do you think things have gotten better since the '60s? Thanks fellows. Seems to me that the USA is caught up in a conundrum re. the (so called) militar...

Re: Re:just in case?

Yes, in fact that's exactly what I'm talking about, since individuals who benefit from military spending control political power. Convince me by identifying the connecting link! As Sertorio rightfully pointed out, this was Eisenhower's warning, not some Alex Jones type figure. Do you think things h...

Re: RIP Lyndon LaRouche

Lyndon LaRouche was an absolute lunatic, but the world is a less interesting place without him in it.

Re: Europe's imports of US LNG are political, not economic.

Wars are the great money generators. No, they are not! Wars are great destroyers of wealth: for the winners as well as for the losers. Never fail is right Sertorio. Countries don’t get rich from war. Modern wars are costly. You lose people and infrastructure. Tell that to the producers of weapons a...

Re: The truth about chemical attacks in Syria is coming out

This is not mainly a BBC problem. The US, the UK and France bombed Syria on the basis of this falsehood, while they should have known the chemical attacks were fake. A good example of what the Middle East western policy is: to bomb and kill on the basis of falsehoods. But, of course, Russia is the ...
