I saw bombed buses still flaming with kindergarten notebooks and women protesting carrying weapons parts with markings clearly showing , Made in America. There is no worse genocidal country and a nation that deliberately kills fellow humans as this USA. In the pursuit of national security, they become god and the rest of the world mere mortal subjects. A day will come.

Nicholas Alexander Furst same here. I think about how people say they voted for Trump because they seen their jobs being moves overseas and they didn't like how politically correct our society has become. these problems are so minor compared to the suffering of others.
