Re: 'Europeans won’t fight" - Spengler.

:o Don't take it personally Jim.

Just insinuating (with a tangential reference to how this has indirectly impacted on me) that given the shaky character of the Nigerian state, the crowd in Silicon Valley who visualise this land as a potential high tech hub are very likely indulging in fantasy.

Re:Iran: the enemy that America made.

Iran is a threat to Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states that are traditional allies of the US. Also, don't forget Israel. The US will be energy independent soon and will no longer need to protect Gulf oil for itself. But its allies (like Europe, Japan, Singapore) need to import oil. Valid point. But...

Re: rather, American workers are copping it in the neck again.

Meantime, why is Trump attempting to drive Iran out of the oil export trade? Don't you think that this is putting upward pressures on the world price of oil? Yes of course. It is a matter of supply and demand. But he perceives Iran to be a threat. So the rise of oil that any restriction of Iranian ...

Re: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Iran’s oil was embargoed for a Long time till oBUMa raised the blockade. It didn’t block Hormuz. Well, I suppose that since Obama raised the embargo then Iran would have no incentive to block the Strait of Hormuz. In any case I believe that the Iranian leadership would be saving that up (ace up its...

Re: 'Europeans won’t fight" - Spengler.

Nigeria already has considerable IT expertise as it is. I cannot count the number of approaches I have received over the years from scammers over there attempting to gain electronic access to my bank account.

Untouchable. They will never be brought to trial in the US.
True. But now they can't go there or anywhere with extradition arrangements with the US.
It probably won't bother them Milo. By now they would probably have been well rewarded.

Re: Czech communists return to government as power brokers.

Can you imagine: their Communist Party making it possible for the scandal ridden scumbag of a multi-billionaire capitalist to assume leadership of the government? :o Once upon a time I thought that Communists were supposed to be against that kind of thing. Indeed. Well, that's sort of like how the ...

Re: rather, American workers are copping it in the neck again.

According to your link, that's because of rising gas prices which is something beyond Trump's control and certainly not due to his policies. In fact, his encouragement of more drilling and withdrawal from the Paris Accord ameliorated the effects of rising gas prices. Gas prices would have risen eve...
