America is world’s bully


The United States is just used to having things its own way.

And its leaders don’t like people and nations who won’t let them do what they want, when they want to do it, so they do all they can to paint them as the bad guys, since they consider themselves the good guys! And most of the mainstream media go right along with them, repeating the same government line and pumping out the same propaganda. The United States has become the sort of bully that it used to accuse the Russians of being, trying to bully Russia and picking on other nations when it can get away with it; usually weak little nations that can hardly fight back, like Afghanistan and Iraq. You’d think the American government would almost be ashamed to pick fights with some of these weak little third world countries, full of poverty-stricken people and dinky little antiquated, untrained and under-equipped military forces. So Russia is starting to stand its ground rather than give up any more ground. The United States isn’t as bright and shiny and attractive as it used to be. The United States, by its own blustering, bullying, self-righteous, obnoxious ways, is managing to turn nations and governments against it all by itself. So one so-called superpower is declining and it’ll be interesting to see what, and who, comes next.
