My main feeling is that the US has finally lost the plot. They have spent so long using the same tactics of sending in arms, financing proxy wars, leaning on governments around the world in so many ways they have finally over extended themselves.
The worldi is weaning itself off the petro-dollar. The dirty Gas the US wants to export will not be wanted.
The drugs culture the US and friends has propagated will be shut down, the drugs simply burned such as the Phillipines. No drug money no proxy armies.
I have this suspicion that the Quatar episode at the moment is some kind of Trojan. A diversion.
The real issue is why the war in Yemen is not being downscaled when the cholera outbreak will threaten all countries surrounding it soon. Also outbreaks of polio in Syria.
War is not so much the problem as epidemics caused by it. I am not justifying anyone's position, just pointing out that rich or poor, Cholera, or Polio do not respect status.
So very sad.
Everyone has problems right now. We need some out of the box ideas to resolve so many issues.
We don't want to become Northern White Rhinos ourselves. Hunting ourselves to extinction.
