The Americans are not coping well with China’ ascendancy. The world can get along fine without the pain and itching of American presence anywhere. If only Preparation H worked against Hubris, Humbuggery, Hypocrisy, and Horseshit.

Burns supported the Iraq war and is on record saying that "China is the greatest threat to the security of our country and of the democratic world..."

Anyone who supported the Iraq war is a criminal and charlatan.

It is the most devastating misfortune of humanity that we have to live with the most psychopathic country on the planet at this moment.

These are colonial overlords and they don’t pretend about it anymore.

The term “Indo-Pacific” has no local origin in Asia. It’s just straight up west-point war college terminology for a colonial region.

Anytime you hear this term, understand that it tell you EVERYTHING about where that person is coming from and the framework they operate from. Colonialism.

BY HEALTHY PLACE: .. Antisocial personality disorder is defined in the DSM-5 as a pervasive pattern of disregard for and violation of the rights of others and the rules of society. As stated, this diagnosis cannot be given to non-adults but the following features must be exhibited before age 16 to qualify for the antisocial personality disorder diagnosis:

Repeated violations of the law

Pervasive lying and deception

Physical aggressiveness

Reckless disregard for safety of self or others

Consistent irresponsibility in work and family environments

Lack of remorse

Looking at the diagnostic criteria, it's clear that if one meets the criteria for a psychopath then one also meets the criteria for antisocial personality disorder. In other words, all psychopaths could be said to have antisocial personality disorder but all those with antisocial personality disorder are not necessarily psychopaths. This may be why, in the DSM-5, psychopathy is an optional secondary identifier for those with antisocial personality disorder.

Those who are psychopaths tend to have more symptoms and more severe versions of those psychopathic symptoms than those with antisocial personality disorder alone. For more information on the specific symptoms of psychopathy, please see: Does a Psychopath Test Exist? Diagnosing the Psychopath. hmm. very, very interesting !... and in one place! hmm......

Our leaders have gone insane.

Note also that all of these are NOT diplomats, but rather the highest ranks and the most hawkish wing of the the three-letter agency, placed out to control foreign policy.

That’s part of the problem with America. There are no diplomatic core. Just fully indoctrinated robots trained in a whilrlpool of hatred of anyone outside the country, and even if many inside it.

Monroe Doctrine for me (USA) but not for thee (China, Russia). Our self-proclaimed Monroe Doctrine is no longer restricted to just the Western hemisphere but now includes every hemisphere.

Anyone in the American foreign policy establishment who actually believes its narratives in spite of the naked inner contradictions is certifiably deranged. We're not talking run-o-the-mill sociopaths anymore; we're talking full blown psychopaths at the helm of state.

CJ... What a vile group of talking heads. Narcissists all. How is it that we tolerate such people in these positions of influence and power year after year after year?

I have pondered the solution to US attempts at hegemony for many years. IMO, the best "fix" for this madness is for the nations of the world to simply turn their backs on the USG and its representatives. Shun them all. Do not accept the billions of fiat $s used to bribe the planet (it is stolen from the citizens of the US anyway). Do not acknowledge or speak with any of the elite morons in charge of this Failed State. Do not purchase any US weaponry or energy. The planet does not need our services or our products (not sure we actually make anything other than toxic chemicals and cricket burgers). Turn your backs on the US/UK/5 Eyes Cabal and simply walk away.

Do maintain contact with common men and women in the US as we collectively hope for peace and friendship on this Earth that we share. We are a captured nation. Controlled and owned by some of the worst oligarchs in history and their actions do NOT reflect the wishes or desires of WeTheSheeple. Our rulers have been rampaging about the planet bullying, killing, maiming and impoverishing millions during my lifetime and it must stop.

The US posture is of course ridiculous, but there's nothing new about it: for exceptionalists, it isn't exceptional. And did Burns mean, American interests can only be advanced if... or can be advanced only if...Either way, I'm sure China is ready to fall in line with whatever is good for America.

Maybe they should try being a leader back home for change.

Interesting given current geopolitical realities. As Catherine Austin Fitts and others have discussed, the globalists - whether you see them as the WEF, Bilderberg, Club Of Rome or something else - seem to favor China as epitomizing the kind of control they desire. The USA represents a problem child with unruly independent type people who don’t take well to control - and who distrust their own government (with very good reason).

The US government has gone well off the reservation or off the rails. Can’t help but think all these various globalist stakeholder capitalist partners are playing a carefully scripted role for our benefit.

The goal is 100% control. “You will have nothing and you will be happy.”
