Re: US Foreign Policy

The UN represents the world as it is, and is the only place where people can talk before they start shooting. It's either the UN or nothing, and nothing will only make wars more likely and more frequent. That's false. There is also the option of multilateral talks, which historically have proven oc...

Re: The Trump-Fatty Kim summit in Singapore

Even if was taking Kremlin propaganda at face value - which I don't - I would never support my opinions on surveys using biased samples. When you habitually post it without comment, it's pretty tough to tell the difference. For instance, believing that Bashar al-Assad uses chemical weapons based on...

Re: Discrimination against Asians in University admissions

I must remind my black liberal Friend who is always reflexively complaining about discrimination. The only groups facing institutional discrimination are Asians and whites. Well, until you look at police brutality statistics. That is due to black people disproportionately commit more crimes. Spoken...

Re: US Foreign Policy

"US withdraws from UN Human Rights Council" http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/world/us-withdraws-from-un-human-rights-council-10449488 A good start . . . Once the US has subverted the UN in the way it did the League of Nations, we may expect the same consequences... By "subverted" I guess you mea...

Re: The Future of the World

I wish people would stop seeing Russia as a threat. Russia is much less of a threat than a trigger happy US. But one shouldn't threaten Russia by keeping building NATO bases around Russia, or by trying to subvert Russian interests in its near abroad. The attempt at having the Ukraine expelling Russ...

Re: The Trump-Fatty Kim summit in Singapore

Having a reliable picture of North Korea is not easy. It's actually pretty easy to see the accounts from people who have escaped from there. But you've long since proven capable of ignoring anything that doesn't support an anti-American narrative and believing anything that does, no matter how gull...

Re: Neverfail's North American ruminations.

And for all that, some parts of the West Indies are actually upper income. Bermuda and the Caymans are wealthier than, say, Australia. On paper? Nope. Bermuda is like if you put Beverly Hills on a rock in the middle of the ocean. Bermudians are so well off that they have to import people from elsew...
