Thanks to the weakling that occupies the White House the world is a lot closer to the possibility of an outbreak of world war. Whilst I am not predicting a world war can happen, I am continuing to monitor the various situations that are erupting all over the world. Anyone who thinks that “climate change” is some kind of moral imperative needs to pay more attention to the real world.
First of all, there is the threat of a trade war involving China. This is a very real threat brought about by the European community and their commitment to watermelon policies, including a carbon tax on incoming flights to European cities. The Chinese do in fact see this as an impediment to free trade. Always keep in mind that the Japanese prior to their involvement in world war 2 had issues about trade agreements. Keep in mind that up until at least the 1980s most countries had their protectionist policies. Keep in mind that Østupid has made noises about protectionism and there is no way of knowing what RP would do if the worst possible outcome was ever to eventuate. The possibility of China starting a trade war is indeed a very real threat in the future.
Second, Iran is making plans to strangle the shipment of oil from the Middle East. They plan on taking over the Suez Canal. However, Østupid is just too dumb to see what is happening. Such an action is a threat to the rest of the Middle East as much as it is a real threat to Europe, the USA and Australia.
Third, Turkey has continued its refusal to acknowledge the holocaust against the the Armenians which occurred prior to and during the first world war. There was indeed a pogrom against the Turkish Armenians and thousands were slaughtered by the Turks. The Turks stole the property of the Armenians at the time. However, there were survivors who told their story. France has been determined that Turkey must stop denying the Armenian holocaust. As a result legislation has passed in the lower house of the French Parliament, and is awaiting passage in the French Senate. Reuters reports that Erdogan has slammed the bill and is making (empty) threats against France. Erdogan has slammed the bill based upon “racism, discrimination and xenophobia”. Really? The truth is that the Turks are guilty of acting in a racist manner towards the Christian Armenians, and that they took action with the intention of wiping out the whole community. The fact is that had it not been for the survivors of this particular holocaust the world would have remained silent. Turkey needs to admit its mistakes and stop denying what took place. The Turk’s claim that there was a partisan conflict with killings on both sides still sounds like baloney to me.
