Thesis/Subtitle: yes, Virginia, one can blame
Concomitant: the yanks for most negative things
Corollary: like flushing our once-fine world down the tor-let.
Musing: On the one hand, nobody in their right mind wants to see death and destruction (aka mass-murder for spoil), on the other, our so-called 'leaders' don't listen to us (they don't care a fig) - nor do they listen to reason, or to any good sense either. Since our opinions sooo obviously don't matter - for proof, recall how Howard called the anti-wars "a mob" and totally ignored us, you wonder why the so-called 'leaders' = crooks set up such elaborate systems of lies?
Fazit: I planned to make a full post out of this - wars, rip-offs, neoliberalism as erring ideology; idiotic austerity as last step in the IMF/SAPs economic destruction, banksters etc., all together = mainly US M/I/C/$4a†-plex + I/J/Z-plex rapine, plus the XS-CO2-CCC leading to polar melting - but then I thought: "I don't give a fig." IF you're not convinced by now, that the US/Zs are the worst possible, cancerous pox on the planet - THEN kindly
f**k off - err, go somewhere else; you're not worth my - err, you're wasting your own time.
