  8. Some Pentagon official or general is supposed to have once said: ‘if we don’t have an enemy, we invent one’. And the US still doesn’t get it why it is so hated around the world.

  9. ‘Monopoly on democracy’??? Democracy where??? Just because voting is allowed (and not even all) democracy doesn’t make. ‘We, the people’ has been usurped by ‘we, the corporations’ a very long time ago. Fascism…no more, no less.
