meeh, no need to waste 5 trillions are not needed, corruption is only in North Korea where nothing is private. Or china or Russia. US is corruption democratic free country.
Well to be fair they set up several committee groups to look in to the case of corruption and the representatives from Coca Cola and Microsoft agreed that there was no corruption in the US government... and they also passed a few amendments that removed any liability for a US company in case a foreign individual or group is injured of killed because of the negligence of a US based company (that has all its production off shore and pays no taxes in any of the countries it operates within.)
Garry mentioned Superman. It wouldn't surprise me if the character was a deliberate propaganda construct. Superman expresses an ideal that is, in fact, diametrically opposed to the reality of how of the US developed or it's true nature. But, in a symbolic sense, the ideal (which is a lie) is internalized and believed in. Reality is dismissed, excused away or ignored. WHO NEEDS THAT SHIT.
The sad thing is that Superman is obvious... what is less obvious are things like Walt Disney cartoons... the underdog not only always wins, but wins with ease... with class you could say. In the real world the mouse might occasionally get away from a cat or a dog, but most of the time it is lunch... and the reason the mouse is usually lunch is the reason we tend to keep cats in our houses... that is their primary function.
Coyotes are faster than roadrunners, hunters generally shoot lots of rabbits... the reason there are still rabbits is their ability to breed... which is not how it is depicted in Disney cartoons with Bugs and Elmer Fudd.
The huge irony is that Disney and Hollywood in general gets you rooting for the underdog.... and hating the bully that threatens that underdog... but I found myself rooting for the bully because after so many defeats the bully becomes the real underdog.
A further twist in the irony is that it is the US that is the bully in most of its confrontations and incidents...
But having said that I suspect most people around the world are patriotic and have little idea what their government does around the place... the problem with the US government doing things is that the things they do generally have a significant effect on those involved.
So much irony... the US media goes apeshit over alleged foreign interference in their elections, yet US has such an effect on the world perhaps it would have been the one case of justified interference... I mean all those countries donating money to the Clinton foundation and all those donations stopping when she lost the election... how is that not trying to bribe the potential next president of the US of A?
Electorial officials in the US can discount enormous blocks of ballot papers for whatever reason, but a $200 advert on Facebook that there is no evidence influenced a single vote is treason?
Sorry dude, but America is a joke.... and not a good one either.
Perhaps the solution is a hypersonic glide vehicle... what you need to do BKP, is get all your politicians... all of them... democrat and republican... into one building out in the middle of nowhere in Utah at a specific time and organise a live test with Mr Putin... he is going to get the blame anyway...
