Germany to halve military aid to Ukraine from €8bn a year to €4bn
  • Does being ridiculous come naturally to you?

    Or does it only show up when your white liberalism-derived hysteria is threatened by reality?

    Here.

    Ask Vietnamese people how quickly China can turn on it's "allies." I'm sure they will be glad to tell you.

  • 32 percent of Americans believe a military regime or authoritarian leader would be a good way of governing the country.
  • I’m not saying their transition to democracies liberal democracies

    FTFY - so-called "liberal democracy" is about as democratic as "social darwinism" is Darwinist. And those are two terrible examples to use - they only went pretend-democratic after the fascist regimes murdered and tortured any elements in society that could be called democratic with a straight face.

    If that's what you want for the US you might just as well start marching with the fascists.

  • Germany to halve military aid to Ukraine from €8bn a year to €4bn
  • China is already helping Russia.

    As I've already said... China could help Russia logistically - but this help could disappear in a puff of hot air tomorrow. Again... China has no friends.

    Modi just had a big state visit to Russia.

    And this doesn't mean much in any way whatsoever.

    I don’t need to ask Jonas Savimbi, I’ve been reading current events.

    Actual history will tell you a lot more than warmed-over propaganda.

  • Germany to halve military aid to Ukraine from €8bn a year to €4bn
  • Good thing Russia isn’t making friends with China and India,

    China has no friends - it's like the US in that regards. And India even struggles to project power within it's own borders, never mind outside it.

    China could help Russia logistically, but Putin (and all of China's other "allies" - and I use that term lightly) understand fully well that China's "loyalty" can switch at any time - just ask Jonas Savimbi if you don't believe me.

  • Germany to halve military aid to Ukraine from €8bn a year to €4bn
  • You don't need to be some geopolitical genius to know that this assessment is correct - Russia simply doesn't have the economic and logistical power to engage in a wider European conflict with any prospect of success, and this was perfectly clear even before Russia invaded Ukraine and before everyone lost their minds to Putin-hysteria.

  • Eric Garner Murdered by NYPD (2014) On this day in 2014, Eric Garner was murdered by the NYPD, choked to death after police suspected him of selling loose cigarettes. Garner said "I can't breathe"...
  • I remember this. They made such a big deal about the (supposed) "loose cigarettes" he was selling, and that made me think - they'll kill you for selling loose cigarettes... but sell a shipload of the stuff and you get to live in a mansion.

    Considering that it came only two years after the Marikana Massacre here in South Africa, it probably broke the last bit of faith I had in liberalism. It didn't make me hate the police - at that point my hatred for them had already gone as deep as hatred can go.

  • He'll Be Fine
  • how we can snap the Democratic Party out of this corporate controlled mediocrity.

    You can't "snap the Democratic Party out of this corporate controlled mediocrity" because "corporate controlled mediocrity" is the point.

    What? You actually thought they "represented" you?

  • Sovcit is sooooo close..
  • How do you give a handout to the “military” without putting that money into circulation?

    That's the beauty of "trickle-down" economics - it doesn't. Give it to the military and the parts of it that doesn't get hoarded by MIC billionaires gets spent on things such as R&D and asset/infrastructure development and maintenance - there's not a lot of that money "trickling" down and circulating amongst the general population.

    If you were to spend it on health infrastructure and development, the money will still not be "trickling" down - but the benefits will. A bunch of F-35s means next-to-zero benefits for people - but a functional hospital does.

  • Unions hail UK’s rail renationalisation bills as a return to ‘public service’ | Rail industry | The Guardian
  • private train operators warned nationalisation could increase costs

    Who the fuck do these people actually think still believes them?

    Holy fuck I wish my country (South Africa) would start renationalizing stuff - but our two largest factions of political racketeers are as neoliberal as it gets.

    A recently released document from the FBI indicates anti-fascists are as violent as those who would overthrow the U.S. government

    FBI Labels Anti-Fascists and Anti-Racists as Violent Extremists - UNICORN RIOT

    A recently released Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) document titled “Domestic Terrorism Symbols Guide”* links common protest symbols to “terrorism” — another marker in a common theme of conflating militant protest for social justice with deadly terrorist violence within the United States. Groups like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Brennan Center have raised warnings about such documents, citing inadequate protections for people’s constitutional rights.
