Highlights from around the Canadian Football League in Week 16.
How We Got Here: The biggest problem with these stories is the fact that most people are not suffering from amnesia, or any other types of severe head injuries that would impeded our ability to reason. NATO is NOT "responding" to Russian "provocations". Instead, it has been Russia responding to NATO incursions. This is the same as the Chinese responding to Washington's incursions, and the Syrians responding to Washington's invasion (via international terrorists). If it were just ONE situation, then Washington "might" be successful in passing off their usual brand of highly propagandized "news"...but it is one thing after another, and all of it paints a hideous picture of an empire that is embarking on a "claim it all or scorch the earth" policy that we CANNOT afford to live with. China is supposedly "aggressive" for having ONE aircraft carrier that has never even left port...while Washington keeps 8 such vehicles parked right at China's doorstep. Russia is "aggressive" for deploying their forces to counter the various missiles and forces that we have moved right to their doorstep. Syria is somehow "wrong" for fighting back against jihadists that Turkey and Saudi Arabia have imported into their country...with Washington using our own tax dollars to fund, train and arm them. ANd let's not forget the "more than 5 billion dollars spent on certain democratic institutions" that were used to overthrow the government in the Ukraine, and the falsified WMD reports that were used as an excuse to invade Iraq. Too much going on at once, ALL of it pushing well beyond the bounds of credibility and ALL of it courting a self-inflicted extinction-level event that NO ONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND SHOULD BE PUSHING FOR. There is ONE country at the heart of all these various disasters going on in the world. Eventually, the rest of the world is going to see where the problems come from.
