Is the People’s Republic of China a threat to the United States (US)? Is the Russian Federation a threat to the US? Is Cuba a threat to the US? None of them are. They are only threats to US oligarchs.
Right now, 8 of the 10 richest men in the world are US citizens. Imagine how much richer US oligarchs would be, if these nations would allow the US to do whatever she wanted?
US oligarchs run the US government. US oligarchs are more of a threat to US citizens than China. While 38 million Americans live today in poverty, China has already eradicated her poverty, despite having 4 times the US’ population. Moreover, while only 40% of US citizens are satisfied with our government, 90% of Chinese are satisfied with theirs. Therefore, who is the real champion of democracy?
What does the US’ refusal to comply with 42 United Nations resolutions asking her to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans have to do with democracy? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0
What does making oligarchs richer have to do with democracy?
Are we willing to fight World War III to make US oligarchs even richer?
