Democracy = 搞不定了 July 21, 2017

許多人以為美國的民主制度是世界上最好的政治制度。

為什麼這些人有這種想法呢?

因為美國從二次世界大戰以後就拼命的鼓吹美國版的民主政治有多好。美國動不動就把民主放在嘴上,跟其他國家談判時就自以為了不起的批評那些沒有採取民主政治治國的國家。

美國先把美金懸在對方的頭上,然後把民主和人權當做皮靴在後面踢對方的屁股,用美國錢和實行民主做籌碼逼迫其他國家就範。

一次又一次,美國搞的得心應手,在世界上到處搞政變,搞顛覆,搞推翻,搞新政府。美國自以為自己有多了不起,把個臭頭抬的高高的,自以為天下無人,只有美國可以永世稱霸於世界。

你看美國聯邦政府在川普上台以後這半年做了什麼?川普的幾個重要競選保證:共和黨說了七年的推翻歐巴馬健保,稅法改變,重建美國基礎設施,建墨西哥高牆,阻止穆斯林恐怖分子進美國,到現在沒有一個保證成為法律。要知道,美國國會上下兩院都是被共和黨控制的。共和黨裏面自己搞不定才發生的結果。如果民主黨再進來攪混一下那不更要天翻地覆了嗎?

過去六,七十年,美國橫行霸道,許多落後國家沒有其他的方法,只有向美國低頭。美國為了自己的利益,只要它對那一個國家看不順眼,或者對那一國的元首有意見,美國就暗中或公開的想辦法把能那個國家或元首搞下去,然後弄一個討好美國的人上台,給他和他的政黨許多美國錢,還派美國軍隊鎮壓任何反對分子。過了一兩年以後,美國把這個政府推上民主的舞台,搞個選舉,大搖大擺的的成立了一個親美國的政府。

可是民主政治真的那麽好嗎?50.01%的多數就能控制一個國家所有的人嗎?

美國三權分立,相互監視就真的那麽有效率嗎?共和黨要幹掉 Obamacare,在Obama在位時就搞了好多次,結果一次都沒有成功。好了,現在共和黨有了白宮,有了國會,有了最高法院,可是這個政府又爲人民做了些什麼呢?

一個大鴨蛋。

一兩個人在國會反對,不管你喜歡不喜歡,就可以把美國所有的人搞得死去活來的。

而這一兩個人也只不過代表幾萬個選民罷了。那你以為這幾個人為什麼要反對呢?是他維護正義?維護美國人民的利益?

都不是。

因為他下一任選舉就要到了。

這就是美國的民主政治。

A new world order is emerging June 11, 2017

A matter of fact discussion of shifting of the balance of power in the world is clearly stated in the following article. 

The end of the Anglo-American order? – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-40227270

American exceptionism is fading because Trump has been building a wall to isolate the U.S. from its former allies while digging a hole to bury the America alive. Of course, we can not forget Obama’s ‘appeasing’ foreign policy and the wars the U.S. have been and still are wagging against Muslim countries.

The American century will not be seen again and a new world order has already taken shape without Trump and the U.S.. 

Some highlights from the article are here:

America the hyprocrite June 5, 2017

It’s about time that America stops being a hypricote and a snob of the world.

The reason is simple: America hasn’t followed the ‘America value’ when dealing with its own citizens and other nations in the world.

Let’s face it, America for years has violated human rights at home and at many areas in the world. It has never earned the respect from other nations for being the holder of the standard of justice. But America continues to claim moral highground and self-rightousness while criticize other nations, almost 200 nations in 2013, for human rights violations without uttering a word of its own transgressions.

Over the years America was pround of itself for having laws and hiring quotas to prevent social injustice against minorities. But what actaully happens in everyday life in the United States tells a vastly different story. Racial discriminations and mis-treatments against blacks, Latinos, Muslims and Asians at work and in public in the U.S. are everyday occurances. Police brutalities against blacks are sometimes deliberate, always troublesome and widely seen on TV by millions of people around the world.

When appearing in front of a mic or a video camera, many white American politicians (and talk show hosts and entertainers) are die hard human right defenders. In private, they often show their true colors as racists and look down on other races. 
Remembered what B. Clinton said to T. Kennedy and what H. Reid said in private about Obama? If you don’t or choose to ignor them, let me remind you for the sake of human rights in America. Their comments sadly illustrate ‘white supremacy’ mentality ingrained in the American culture. 

First, this shows what B. Clinton said about Obama to T. Kennedy:

This shows what H. Reid thought of Obama:

To further illustrate this point, one can clearly see ‘white supremacy’ in the following picture which shows the confirmed members of Trump’s cabinets: 13 white males (72%), 4 women (22%) and one black (6%.)

Source: Alternet.

Other actions by the U.S. government against its own citizens and other people of the world include massive cyber survaliance on emails and cellphones of common U.S. citizens and many if not all world leaders and the use of torture at Abu Ghraib.

Trump’s executive order on travel bans to the U.S. from several muslim countries and building a physical wall along the U.S. and Mexico border were blatant violations of human rights against muslims and Latinos. The real sad truth about Trump’s action was that the same sentiments are shared by millions of Americans who helped elect Trump to become the 45th preident of the U.S. in the first place.

And what has America done to secure its national interests in the world in the past? With its massive military machines, of course. The purpose of U.S. military in any conflict is to secure dominance in air, sea, land and space. To support this objective, America has deployed in more than 150 countries and has at least 662 overseas bases in 38 foreign countries plus many others in Iraq and Afghanistan.  

While banishing other countries for their poor human right records, oppressed actions against their own citizens by autocratic monarchy governments in the Middle East were conviniently and unabashedly brushed aside by the U.S. government because many of these Islamic countries are strategic partners of the U.S. in the Middle East. America often criticizes its enemies for their poor records on human right violations but dismisses equally bad actions by their friends.

Many military actions and missile and drone attacks taken by the U.S. military against other nations aren’t viewed as legitimate or morally defensible because they were carried out for American’s self interests. Most noticeable were America’s covert, but sometimes public, frequent, forceful and always deadly interventions in the Middle East over the past decades. Civilian deaths caused by American military machines have been ignored by the U.S. government because they were viewed as colleteral damages of American’s war on terror. In fact, US military forces have been responsible for thousands, possibly millions, of civilian deaths in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, Yemen and other regions around the world in the past decade. One might want to ask: ‘Has any of these countries invaded or attacked the United States?’

Over the past six or seven decades, America has done enough bad things around the world. Finally, it knew that the status quo can not continue. Obama’s leading from behind and Mr. Tillerson’s comments are proofs that America has finally realized that America’s glamour of self-righteousness is fast contracting. Its aggressive military and political interventions against many under-developed nations have created enough enemies for the most powerful nation in the world. For that, America is now paying for the consequences. 

America’s march to the bottom continues.

Anti-Trump sentiments, THAAD and Moon May 12, 2017

Trump believes that being the president of the most powerful nation in the world entitles him to demand other nations to do whatever he wants. 

It doesn’t work that way.

Trump wanted South Korea to pay $1 billion for the deployment of THAAD which angered South Koreans because THAAD wasn’t really designed to protect South Korea against missiles from the North. America forces THAAD on SK because it needs to monitor China and Russia as America “pivoting to the East.” In the end, the State Department quietly announced that America tax payers will pay for the deploytment. Trump ate his own words again.

In fact, 56.5% of South Koreans, according to a recent poll, want the deployment of THAAD suspended and leave the decision to the new government. 

But, after SK and the U.S. agreed in July 2016 to deploy one THAAD battery in SK, U.S. sent two mobile launchers to a U.S. military base in SK in March 2017 because America wanted to speed up the installation before a new government comes into power in May 2017. 

However, THAAD deployment has been under fire from the get-go because it was made without parliamentary approval and discussions by the public. The heavy-handed approach by the U.S. government against the will of majority of the South Korean people angered the opposition party which swept Moon Jae-in (文在寅) to the office. Of course, Park’s indictment decimated her party which also helped Moon won the election.

Trump’s bullying personality and his unorthodox foreign policy maneuvers destablized the balance of power in many countries and upset other nations’ politics because Trump’s ascent to power emboldened the populist movements worldwide.
This isn’t good for the U.S. because the strategic alliances cultivated by the U.S. over the past five decades are in danger of breaking apart. Many new governments, e.g., Phillippine and South Korea, may adapt anti-U.S. foreign policies and several pro-America royal family rulers in the Middle East might face renewed oppositions at home. 

None of that is good for the United States. America is threading dangerous water now. It will get worse and the end isn’t near at all.

Trump has no class firing Comey May 10, 2017

Since Trump isn’t doing a good job either, should Thrump be fired too?

Trump did this to the FBI top guy: 

Fired Comey behind his back first. Said that he no longer trusted Comey. Told the world that Comey was incompetent. Stabbed Comey in the back with a stick of dynamite on national TV. Above all, accused Comey committed atrocities on the job. 

What comes next, Trump decides to resign from the WH because Comey helped Trump defeated Hillary?

What’s between Trump’s two ears? 豆腐腦袋?

Is it possible that Rod Rosenstein had told Trump that Comey has found the smoking gun on Trump’s tie to Russia?

Let’s have a special proscutor to investigate Comey’s firing and stir the Trump pot some more. The messier America gets, the better it is for other countries to get ahead.

MOAB did this April 27, 2017

If you only watch American media, you’ll think that Pentagon has defeated the IS in Afghanistan with one big MF MOAB on 4/13/17.

2003 test.

BBC’s reporter, Auliya Atrafi, went to the site to inspect the damage first hand and said this:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-39705128

The BBCreporter also said that the MOAB did kill many IS fighters but more IS fighters who wear 6 pairs of socks (no shoes so that they can sneak up to government soldiers) come back. Maybe the U.S. needs to drop more MOAB to scare the IS fighters into submission, otherwise, Trump may want to send in more American boys and girls to fight the IS on the ground.
In any case, read or watch BBC News to get the real scoop instead of the make-naive-Americans-feel-good fake news.

Auliya Atrafi has this to say at the end of his report:

Turmoil in the Trump house? 


Everyone can see it clearly in public display except Trump and the White House. Don’t you think it is odd when you didn’t see Trump’s wife by his side?

Arguing in the White House bedroom? Gold laced dishes flying? Kitchen knifes throwing? American’s “national curse” exchanging? Kung-fu fighting to finish the argument in the end?

Flies on the wall, anybody? Where is NSA when it is needed the most?

Let’s talk this unique opportunity to talk about America’s “national curse”, 國罵,shall we?

台灣有”三字經”,美國有”二字經”。”三字經”是敵不過”二字經”的。

眾所皆知,美國的國罵是”Fxxx Yxx”。美國國罵簡單易學,直截了當,像一支利劍,一劍一個洞,洞洞見血。所有美國白人小孩都會,而且運用自如,一觸即發。

據我所知,台灣的國罵只能靠嘴巴說出來。不張尊口,不吭氣是罵不出來的。美國身為世界第一大國,美國的國罵跟也與眾不同,它受過文明的洗禮和時間的考驗,顯然的與其他國家的不同。

除了掛在嘴邊,隨時可以吐出來以外,這個國罵還可以用一個 sign language 來表示。左手,右手一樣好用。簡單,明瞭,絕不含糊,也不會被被罵的人誤解。小孩會。小學生會。中學生會。大學生也會。奸商也會。政客尤其精通。

May be it will come out one of these days. We are patient and we’ll wait.

Beware taking on Kim’s death cult

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4403418/Beware-taking-Kim-s-death-cult-writes-MARK-SEDDON.html


Dangeous confrontation, unpredictable outcome and deadly results. 

One hardheaded egomaniac with no foreign policy experience who back tracks many of his campaign promises. 

One determines on taking over South Korea, hates Japanese, eliminates DMZ and has means to carry it out in short order.

DMZ, Seoul, Tokyo  and where else? How many submarines does North Korea have?

The worst possible combination forAmerican soldiers, Koreans, Japanese and people of the world.

Democrat went nuclear.

Republican went nuclear.

They all went nuclear.

American Democracy at its finest moment?

Should American people on the unemployment line or running between jobs laugh or cry at the nuclear fallout?

有去無來何時了,飛彈打多少,
