The Boogeyman Trio as part of Republican propaganda
« on: August 23, 2020, 10:32:52 PM »
In the time of Reagan, the Soviet Union was "the evil empire".  In the time of Bush the enemy were the Arabs.  And with Trump the enemy is China. 


Do you think this is real or just a political strategy?

Reagan got along with Soviet leaders of the time although we were geopolitical enemies long before they assumed power. Some attended Reagan's funeral. After Iraq invaded Kuwait and 9/11, Arab nations asked America to increase our presence there, mainly due to the threat from Iran. Trump doesn't want war with China, just a better trade deal.
Over 220 generals and admirals say we are in a fight for our survival like no other time since 1776. If you want to stop the war in Ukraine, fix elections, stop medical tyranny and forced vaccinations, lower inflation and make America and the world a better place, get Trump back into power. The Democrats and Republicans have shown they can't do the job. They are good at robbing us and getting people killed in non stop wars.

The US needs a bogeyman to justify its constant wars, regime changes and meddling abroad. Russia, China, North Korea, Muzzies, axis of evil, war on drugs, war on terror.....

It’s classic 1984 stuff.

Trump doesn't want war with China

Of course not. The US doesn’t fight those who can fight back. Why Gadaffi and Hussein are dead and Kim Jong-un isn’t. The latter has nukes.

All we are seeing is a realignment of world power along multipolar lines. The US was never going to accept it’s reduced role quietly, so there’ll be a lot more bellyaching about China and Russia yet.

Read a trip report from North Korea >>here<< - Read a trip report from South Korea, China and Hong Kong >>here<<

Look what the American media makes some people believe:
Putin often threatens to strike US with nuclear weapons.

Heard that  Kim Jong-un is in a comma in today's news.

If King Jong Un is in a coma, it might set other people off since they claim he's running the country and showing up at events. I've said for months, he's missing and the photos released of him visiting a fertilizer factory were photoshopped.

Tell China those facts so they can go take Taiwan back without US intervention.

Manny you must admit, the conturies you have listed  have made it easy to be most countires enemies
with their policeys and human rights records, add some of their more obvious acts.
the US are one of the few who can say something and get away with it.

Curious in the last 50 years, how many proxy wars have the US and Russia had against each other?
There is nothing permanent except change.
