    USAID is a tool of financial imperialism

    You just have to look through the history of ISIS and Al Quada interviews to see USAID printed on the tents behind them when they make their videos...

    USAID violates all WTO rules... it is basically I will give you a low interest loan, but you can only spend it in my shop on my weapons and depending on who you are they might be new or they might be old and worn out... but we will decide.

    Losers can keep dreaming. As if Uncle Swine-shit and his harpies have not been trying to "deal with Russia" since
    before 1990. And they just can't exert the power that they think they can. So these "calls" and "demands" are
    tantrum baby spasms.

    Putin should keep making it clear that any military move against Russia will be met with a hard response on
    the soil of the attackers. These old smelly c*nts like their simp male counterparts think that they will
    be safe and secure away from any front lines.

    No matter how noisy the finale of the US presidential election may be, it is not necessary to expect decisive changes in the State Department’s foreign policy from the change of figures in Washington. This was directly and, perhaps, even directive stated by Victoria Nuland.

    First appointments of new Biden administration: retired general Lloyd Austin headed the Pentagon
    Today, 07: 03
    US Foreign Policy and Diplomacy under Joe Biden 16113710

    For the first time in the stories led by an African American. Retired General Lloyd Austin took over after Senate approval.

    On Friday, the Senate of the US Congress finally approved General Lloyd Austin as head of the Pentagon, and he will be sworn in soon. It is clarified that Austin took the post of minister as an exception. The fact is that in the United States it is forbidden to occupy the chair of the Secretary of Defense for persons who retired from active military service less than 7 years ago, and the general retired in 2016.

    Austin was nominated for the post of Secretary of Defense by Joe Biden, and the US Congress passed a separate bill that allowed him to be approved for this post.

    The new Secretary of Defense is the first African American to occupy the post and the sixth in US history to receive four General's stars. In total, he served 41 years, before retiring as head of the US Central Command (CENTCOM), in charge of the Middle East, South and Central Asia and parts of North Africa.

    He considers Russia and China "posing a threat," and specifically Russia, a "key adversary." At the same time, he advocates cooperation in some areas.

    Meanwhile, the new chief of the Pentagon did not postpone things and held a telephone conversation with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. Austin stressed the importance of the alliance to the United States and discussed missions in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Biden suspends arms sales to Saudi Arabia and UAE


    White House hold on Trump-era deals includes fighter jets tied to Emirati recognition of Israel

    The White House has suspended arms sales agreed by Donald Trump to two Gulf allies, the first significant move by President Joe Biden to reset US relations with Sunni Arab regimes heavily courted by his predecessor.

    The temporary freeze puts a landmark deal to sell 50 F-35 fighter jets to the United Arab Emirates, as well as other arms destined for Saudi Arabia, on hold.

    Antony Blinken, the new secretary of state, has endorsed a series of Trump-brokered accords to normalise ties between Arab allies and Israel, which started with an agreement with the UAE in August. But he told reporters he was reviewing the commitments made in order to secure those pacts.

    The Trump administration agreed the F-35 sale after the UAE agreed to formalise diplomatic relations with the Jewish state. Mr Trump also recognised Morocco’s sovereignty over the disputed territory of Western Sahara, in contravention of diplomatic norms, after Rabat agreed to normalise ties with Israel.

    Saudi Arabia had been expecting the new US administration to take a tougher stance after Mr Biden criticised human rights abuses under Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s watch and vowed to “review” relations with the kingdom.

    Mr Trump had put arms sales to Saudi Arabia — one of the world’s biggest weapons buyers — at the core of his relationship with Prince Mohammed, standing by the kingdom’s day-to-day ruler despite the brutal 2018 murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi agents. He also vetoed a bipartisan bill to end US support for the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen’s civil war. 

    In another blow to Riyadh, Mr Blinken said he would review sanctions imposed on Iranian-aligned Yemeni rebels after warnings that the measures risked triggering the world’s worst famine in decades.

    While Mr Blinken accused the group of committing atrocities, he said the US should be focused on alleviating a humanitarian catastrophe.

    Saudi Arabia and the UAE intervened in the war in Yemen to fight the Iranian-backed Houthis after the rebels seized Sana’a, the capital, in 2014 and forced the Yemeni government into exile.

    “We’ve seen a campaign [in Yemen], led by Saudi Arabia, that has also contributed to what by many estimates is the worst humanitarian crisis in the world today, and that’s saying something,” Mr Blinken said. It was “vitally important” to get humanitarian assistance to people in desperate need, he added.

    While Mr Blinken said he had “real concerns” about some policies pursued by Riyadh, he also said the US “should do what we need to do to help defend Saudi Arabia against aggression directed at Saudi Arabia, including from Yemen and from the Houthis”.

    The Houthis have fired scores of missiles and drones at Saudi Arabia, targeting airports and oil infrastructure.

    The UAE, which had also drawn criticism in the US for its role in the Yemen war, was hoping that its decision last year to normalise relations with Israel would win goodwill with Mr Biden’s team.

    Both the UAE and Saudi Arabia are critical US allies in the Middle East and supported Mr Trump’s decision to pull out of the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal and impose sanctions on Tehran.

    In addition to US criticisms for its role in inflaming the Yemeni war, UAE has faced opprobrium for its support of Khalifa Haftar, a renegade Libyan general who has challenged the internationally recognised regime in Tripoli.

    Germany remains an American colony. Germans should grow some pride. And stop paying for WWII with submission to Uncle Swine-shit.
    As someone from the primary victim country of the Nazis I speak with moral authority on this issue. Fcuking Americans have no

    This retired Navy Seal say Russia is an external threat to the United States; it was mentioned that President Biden made a call to Putin about Russia having its way is going to stop. "McRaven praised President Joe Biden's first phone call with Putin, where the president, according to a White House readout, "made clear that the United States will act firmly in defense of its national interests in response to actions by Russia that harm us or our allies."

    Typical trash talk from the self-anointed masters of the universe. But just like all the other scum of their sort before them
    they will break their teeth trying to bite Russia and will get their asses handed back on a platter.

    I want to see the yanquis try. History does repeat as a farce. The commie boogeyman is not there this time around for
    the US to frighten all the local elites around the world. And Russia only becomes stronger from any embargo. It can
    also fuck up NATzO by actually cutting the exports of oil and gas to it.

    The US is a threat to the world.

    If Russia was a real threat to the US why would they have bought so much US debt before the US started attacking Russia forcing Russia to drop the debt and drop the US dollar.

    {hint you don't buy US debt and then try to break or make the US collapse... because then they wont be able to repay their debt to you and you lose that money... Russia buying up US debt was betting on the US economy to survive and some day pay off that debt with some interest... they only got rid of it because the US was using any weapon they had to damage Russia and there was a small chance they might have made some claim about Russia and then written off any US debt the Russians were holding... though that would be unlikely because a lot of other nervous holders of US debt would likely get rid of it as fast as they could if they were to start doing that...}


    Now Russia dropping the US dollar and selling off its US debt holdings is seen by the US as aggression against the US.

    If you start swinging a bat and spraying me with pepper spray of course I am going to put on a helmet and gas mask and carry a shield and body armour to protect myself from the raving lunatic... but to then say to me with my helmet and gas mask and body armour and shield are a threat to you and you have to now react to my aggression by building a tank is just a joke isn't it?

    The American Left is just as supportive of the Latin American right as the American right. This article does a good job of explaining it below; here are a few quotes from the article:


    "These were the ideas, funded and weaponized by the United States, that undergirded the spectacular political violence of Latin America’s Cold War decades, informing key flashpoints throughout the continent. Numerous coup attempts, whether thwarted or victorious, drew explicitly on the right-wing mythology of the Spanish Civil War"


    "However distasteful more moderate actors and their U.S. State Department friends may have found the means—torturing union activists, throwing students out of airplanes into the sea, massacring indigenous communities, and the like—they were quite content with the ends, which included the systematic decimation of organized labor, the suspension or reversal of badly needed agrarian reforms, the punishment of progressive tendencies within the church, and the gutting of the social movements that could have fought the debilitating, externally imposed structural adjustments of the 1980s and 1990s. The international investors heralding, and exploiting, present-day Central and South American markets as prime business opportunities have decades of conservative repression to thank. Put simply, it is not an accident that Latin America today remains the most unequal region in the world."

    The American left is a fraud. And those saps who think they are leftists are led around by the nose with Pavlovian trigger phrases
    "democracy" and "human rights". Except these cretins ignore real removal of democracy and the staging of war crime level of
    human rights abuse in the wake of their knee jerk support for "pro American" "freedom fighters" and juntas. Nicaragua is an
    excellent example, the Contra terrorists who relished killing civilians were idolized in the USA as freedom fighters spreading US
    ideals. Then those ideals must be verminous repression and not any sort of actual freedom.

    More people have been butchered in the name of goodness by orders of magnitude than any other pretext. This applies
    globally from the European crusaders, to their American offspring, to the USSR and to Nazi Germany. Now we have the
    US ramping up its dementia with a domestic war on "terror" against the people who were robbed of their votes by the
    Biden fraud. America is likely to start up concentration camps to deal with "white supremacists" and "alt right" "troublemakers".
    All in the name of what is good and holy.

    Biden begins the withdrawal of part of the American military contingent from the Middle East
    Today, 07: 24
    18
    American President Joe Biden ordered to reduce the size of the American military contingent in the Persian Gulf, starting the withdrawal of personnel and weapons. This was reported by The Wall Street Journal.

    According to the newspaper, three batteries of Patriot anti-aircraft systems have already been withdrawn from the Persian Gulf region, and one of them was previously deployed in Saudi Arabia. Following the Patriots, it is planned to withdraw the THAAD missile defense system, but a decision on this has not yet been made.

    In addition to the air defense system, according to Washington's plans, "a number of reconnaissance systems" will be moved from the Middle East, the period of stay in this region of the AUG at the head of the US nuclear aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, which goes to the Persian Gulf, but stopped in the Eastern Mediterranean, will be shortened.

    Meanwhile, the aircraft carrier's wing has begun sorties in support of Operation Unwavering Determination in Syria and Iraq.

    An aircraft carrier strike group, led by the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Dwight D. Eisenhower, began flights in support of Operation Unwavering Determination from the eastern Mediterranean on 31 March. Our strike group is ready and capable of direct long-range combat aviation support
    - said the commander of the 8th attack aircraft carrier group (UAG) Rear Admiral Scott Robertson.

    In command of the 6th fleet The US Navy stressed that the presence of an aircraft carrier group led by USS Dwight D. Eisenhower "demonstrates the US Navy's ability to support Operation Resolute Determination from multiple theaters, as evidenced by the mobility, flexibility and ability of US aircraft carrier strike groups to project force."

    Next, the AUG should proceed to the Persian Gulf, where the French carrier group headed by the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle is already located.
