When I was in high school, the USSR was infamous for its persecution of dissidents. When I grew up, the US became famous for its persecution of whistleblowers.
Frankly, Mr Chubais’s efforts on behalf of Russia would be better rewarded with a jail cell than a government office.
As the US seeks to divide the world into two halves and ban both China and Russia, there’s a good chance that the world won’t follow.
Imagine what would happen if China arrested Tim Cook or Ivana Trump? That’s what the morons in Canada did when they snatched Meng Wanzhou.
Canada will be declared bankrupt. Natural resources, ports, airports, national parks, hospitals, universities, schools and water supply will be on the block.
Perfectly normal and sane to strip the earth bare and poison the air and the water in an economic system which requires infinite growth on a finite planet
At Moon of Alabama, B unleashed the gates of hell in a recent post taking on climate change: Trump Administration Acknowledges Climate Change – Predicts Large Rise In Global Temperatures. His essay was fairly innocuous musings on humankind’s carbon footprint.
Strangely the start of the comment section looked like an attack of the Catholic church on heretics in sixteenth century Spain.
Any student of history or even prolific reader who spends any time out on the web these days runs into endless posts by either the ignorant or malicious making nonsense claims or denials about various unsavory US actions or incredible propaganda.
Here’s one such post by someone with the moniker falconflight, both denying and justifying the use of white phosphorus by the US military at the same time.
I have no proof either way from the US Gov’t and certainly not from the Syrian/Russian/Iranian side. I don’t know that it is BS. BTW, phosphorous use is NOT illegal, except in explicitly outlined limitations, such as high concentration of civilian populations.
