World Politics Stuff (not brexit)

Postby Kwacky » 06 Feb 2019, 14:13

I see that in the last 24 hours France, Russia and USA have all tested unarmed nuclear missiles.

A few hours before that France scrambled Rafale warplanes for an 11 hour nuclear deterrent mission.

Brazil and Columbia have put their military on the border with Venezuela. The US and Russia are taking sides.

Russia is in the process of sealing off the Sea of Azoz

Serbia and Croatia are needling each other and their neighbours again with Russian backing.

Looks like we could be heading for another cold war.

And in almost-related news....we have assault choppers and troops practicing drills, at night, in the skies & on the ground around downtown Los Angeles.

Bring it on!!!

I get the feeling those in charge know the system is **** and at breaking point. Nothing like a good war to bring the people to heel.

Well Australia paid Indonesia $320 million in foreign aid last year and then Indo turned around and bought $400 millions worth of attack helicopters.... so we’ve literally paid to make it easier for them to invade us

Foreign Aid is just the Government giving your money to their friends in the arms industry , it seems to me that all the countries we give aid to have military budgets that far exceed what they can actually afford hence the need for the cash injection from us .

You gotta love the latina women. They never have any qualms about things like cleavage. Just part of the culture.

Those who control the media will be chuffed to see a split away from the Labour party.

I wonder if any LibDems or Tories will join them or will they sit back to see what happens?

Not seen the the press briefing yet, but 10 quid says they brought up antisemitism as a major factor.

7 of them! That's fantastic, we were only expecting 4.

Just a little bit disappointed Jess Philips wasn't one of them.
