Re: The Liberation of Venezuela

It's in Spanish, but I suppose you can use Google translator to get a fair translation of what it says about the consequences of the boycot against Venezuela.

Re: Pope Francis and the Economy

Pope Francis... he's the one living in a tax-free compound, surrounded by gold and guns, promoting charity and world peace, right? His thoughts are what matters, not where or how he lives.But the latter is easier to criticize than the former... Just saying that sounds awfully libertarian to me. :lo...

Well, do you think that 9/11 was insufficient justification for the U.S. to invade Afghanistan? What had Afhgani...

Re: Trump's Revenge: US floods EU with oil

Hundreds of million of people all over the world trust Russia and Putin more than they trust the US. Citation needed. Which is quite understandable. Who can trust a country which denounces every treaty it has ever signed? And yet it's Russian policymakers, not U.S. ones, who have used gas supplies ...

Re: Trump's Revenge: US floods EU with oil

Logical... Europe has plenty of oil and gas just accross the eastern border, but it would prefer to import them from the US, because the US is more reliable!...
