    The U.S. Department has approved the sales ... not Biden ... yet. We'll see. These deals began under the Trump Administration.

    Going for the throat, Aragorn ...

    Biden isn't the issue. We all know he's only a puppet for the same warmongering factions that have been running the US empire all along. Abby is indicting that whole empire, not just Biden.

    Fair enough, but he still has a chance to change the direction, if he doesn't ... bad, very bad, if he does good, very good. It is possible that the issues in the Americas is not a primary concern for him given the sad state of domestic issues. If the sales hit a nerve he would do something about it. We need a little time to see how it plays out. I don't know much about recent South American political situations other than what I've learned about my neighbor's feelings. The greatest fear is the communists. Left/Right doesn't matter so much to them. It's the communists they fear over and beyond that 'communists' are inherently authoritarian, perhaps less so than the fascists. It doesn't matter to them.

    "I'm gonna guess it's not the Palestinian half," may have been the better choice.

    Here come the mountainous molehills.

    I don't know how people will get out of this moral and human morass in Isreal.

    I can't imagine the depth of the bad karma being built up by Isreal. And I hate to see what the final culmination will be.

    It's sad DT. The Israelis once upon a time had many in sympathy with them. I myself included, but now the authoritarians rule, and once again they have f*cked up any chance for a positive move forward in social consciousness and global peace.

    Abby is sincere but maybe a little over her head in terms of analysis of conditions. She shows some contradictions in her condemnations. But I've concluded that she has the best interests of the world in mind. Perhaps she does this gig knowing that her presentation is not completely accurate but instead works for emotional appeal. I'll give her a break until she really steps over the line.

    Abby does good work overall. The fact that she's reporting on so much that others aren't is important. She doesn't have the final word, of course. And she provides content which is a great starting point to a path of knowing and understanding more.

    She's not leading you down a garden path, out of the way of the real action.
