Re: Exit the United Nations?

A new honcho at UNESCO was just voted in. She's French, and promises to reform the organization. Apparently the two Arabs who had thrown their headgear in the ring split the Muslim vote. We'll see. The reality is that France is so far in the arms of Arabia that it is unlikely to reform the corrupt ...

Re: even when America wins it still loses.

If the Iraqi government forces are driving out ISIS that can only mean that the Shias are tightening their grip on the Sunni north. Big geostrategic gain for Iran. Maybe or maybe not. I think Trump's assistance has restored some American influence in Iraq. It lessens their dependency on Iran. Even ...

As for not being exceptional or superior in any way, you've apparently mistaken them for Portugal. (See how obnoxious that is?)
We are really superior, but we are too shy to let other people realize it... We prefer to enjoy our superiority in complete silence... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Exit the United Nations?

Great news. Israel and the United States are departing UNESCO. But what took them so long? Withdrawing from any international forum is never a good thing. Countries need to talk to each other, no matter how little they like each other. Americans are already far too disrespectful of other nations so...

And plenty of dumb Europeans ready to let them try... Will a civil war in Catalonia be of advantage to anyone in Spain or in Europe? If not, then...

Re: Yom Kippur

My theory is that the Democratic Party like all leftist parties is the party of the welfare state. It encourages you to become dependent on the government. Those with strong faith will turn to God to solve their financial and other problems. Those without faith will turn to the government. If one m...
