Well as this thread implied.

I just sit back and wait and see what FBI investigations.
The pissed of Republican base that don't like that Pence is left out of the loop.
CIA aint too happy either.
The Israel posturing.
The North Korea missile firing.
Russia ramping up Ukraine tensions.
Ukraine now going right wing like the USA. (They don't like other ethnic people also)

The pot is now bubbling and the meal is almost ready.

I don't know why we keep skirting this issue, lets just come out and admit since we have forces on the entire globe that we are now nothing more than an empire trying to consume everyone else.

To some "old guards" in Washington, DC, "Russia is still the thing that is supposed to make us 'Duck And Cover.'"

They don't want to talk to Russia. They don't want anyone in the USA ever talking to Russia. They want to "investigate" anyone who dares do so.

In "Russia," they have the "faceless enemy" that every propagandist dreams of – as long as no one ever comes into actual contact with anyone who lives there. The thought of "cooperation" or of the existence of "a common purpose" with regards to anything at all is ... of course ... "unthinkable."

Why, if you profess to even know where Moscow is on the world map, we might need to "investigate" you.

Whereas, the Chinese government, which in many ways "was always far more 'Communist' than the USSR ever was," is ... a most-favored nation because they produce lots of cheap crap stuff for us (right now).

And it is these kinds of idiots with their control of legacy media, pounding the drums of war that will get us all killed. Remember we have a lot of Maxine Waters in our government - that level of stupidity is beyond dangerous.

You still also see this in the media - citing Russia 'up to her old tricks again' of being aggressive - yet - http://www.rferl.org/a/ukraine-russi.../28268104.html - you still have Ukraine and NATO poking at the bear, then blaming the bear for acting aggressively. Rather stupid to me, I mean I guess I should go throw rocks at a nest of wasps, and I should get mad at them for swarming and stinging me. Yet they do not even try to hide their intentions anymore anyways, they just don't care it is that blatant.

Practically free slave labour to US corporations, that is all that it is.

Well, never forget that both the "United States Military-Industrial Complex" and "the European Military-Industrial Complex (NATO)" have no use for a "Russia™" that is not "up to her old tricks again."

After the German and the Japanese threats were finally extinguished, Russia, in the form of The USSR, became the new and faceless justification for the construction of thousands of atomic bombs and missiles. "The Russian Threat™" became the justification for construction of hundreds of military bases, [still] paid-for by hundreds of ##CLASSIFIED## of dollars in mostly-##CLASSIFIED## spending every ##CLASSIFIED##.



While, obviously, "no nation (including the United States)" is "guiltless" in much-of-anything ... (we are all human, you know )) ... I do think that this has gone entirely too far.

"Ike" Eisenhower sternly warned us about "The Military-Industrial Complex" during his farewell speech to the Nation – the speech in which he coined the term. Let us remember that he was a General who had attained the highest rank ever afforded to any living man. (A very-peculiar Act of Congress grants a superior rank-plus-one to the long-dead George Washington.) As a military commander, he knew military issues as well as anyone could. And, as President, he knew politics as well as anyone could. He could warn about it, but he was powerless to stop it because ... "there's so goddam much m-o-n-e-y in it."

Europe has the same issues, too.

All correct but I just want to add a bit more about Trump's innocence quip - it shook the whole American Exceptionalism to it's core and rightfully so. Every country is 'unique' however this 'American Exceptionalism' is nothing more but a way to deflect any sort of criticism of the US and it's policies - to the point of sheer arrogance and disdain for everyone else.

Now - this is something you don't often see or here:

If "the Intelligence community is declaring war against its Commander-In-Chief," and releasing to the public information that they are required to keep secret, that's called: treason.

In this case, I am sure it had to have been someone from the intelligence agency let alone probably tied to the previous administrator and/or Clinton too. At this point as a matter of principle I have to support Trump's presidency - because this is the first attempt at a bloodless coup but will not be the only card played. If this coup is successful things will go back to the status quo of the passed 40 years. If it does not succeed - well I am not going to think about that.

If these leaks are just designed to try to topple a legitimate leader, then I also agree that this is treason - these leaks do not seem to be for the sake of informing anyone but to be used for nefarious ends, so on this I agree.
