But it has nothing on what is in store for the world in 2020. Here's hoping to get through it.
“You wouldn’t want to be an American in Iraq just now”
"After U.S. Strike On Iraqi Forces Its Troops Will (Again) Have To Leave" I tagged this onto the end of a previous post today but it is fully deserving of a post of its own. I am now officially disgusted with the US. They don't deserve to breathe the same air that everyone else does. ... Continue Reading →
Getting Along Together…
"Contract on Russian gas transit via Ukraine stipulates ‘pump or pay’ principle - Naftogaz" See? It's not all that difficult to get along together, is it, when issues are put aside or amicably settled for mutual benefit? Much better than shooting at each other. The world should operate more on these principles. "Starting tomorrow maybe?"... Continue Reading →
2011 Repeat? That Would Be Nice.
Wow! Australia's Stan Grant hosting news bulletins on al Jazeera! That's something I wasn't aware of - but not what I'm sharing this for. https://youtu.be/pY3khWH4268 The US has attacked militia units associated with an ally. That's pretty newsworthy and, being already on the nose in Iraq, it wouldn't take much of such action - this... Continue Reading →

A total of 124 people to Donbass and 74 to Kiev, were swapped. "Decision... Continue Reading →

"Strategic... Continue Reading →
When It’s Time…
One of the many songs I love, songs that tend to evoke (changed this from 'invoke' which carries meaning I did not intend) some emotional response whenever heard, is Andrea Bocelli's 'Time To Say Goodbye', or 'Con Te Partiro' (I Will Go With You) as it was originally called. Sometimes it is more meaningful, especially... Continue Reading →
US, Oil Thieves
The US, through its continued presence in Syria is stealing $30 million a month in oil revenue from the Syrian government. This is how the US 'secretly' funds its military adventures. Syrian Oil And US Troop Withdrawal, Explained: - SouthFront In what universe can this be said to be a fair and just situation? There... Continue Reading →
A Little Can Go A Long Way …Even To The Top
When you climb to the top of the tree and from that height piss on all the neighbours, you had better damn well make sure you stay there at the top, no matter what it takes. Take for example the US. Do I need to explain further? With nauseating arrogance, that is exactly what the... Continue Reading →
