Noooo, it sounds like America is finally taking the fight to China.

It sounds like a parody of loud mouth Trumpists who are all wind and piss.

We've got plenty left for China, Toasted.

Yeeehaw!

Yes, we're going to feel some pain from this trade war. It's pay now or pay a whole lot more later. We choose now.

We choose "no". No to either of your nations. The US cannot win this trade war without massive damage to its own economy and the livelyhoods of millions.

The U.S. has more bullets than China for this trade war.

Too busy using them on each other, the Americans. This is the war that Trump will lose both on the world stage and in the ballot boxes come 2020.

the Kochs and their company bankrolled a decades-long movement to cast doubt on man-made climate change and to thwart efforts to fight global warming through reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Well, they've got their wish now, the Amazon's on fire threatening 20% of the planets oxygen.

What about the constant lies of liberals? Should they be blocked or given attention?

QED.

Interesting that Trumpists bellow the "freedom of speech" mantra when it suits.

But they are happy to deflect on this one, bringing liberals into the topic.

Russia, China and the US are too large and unwieldy to ever function properly as responsible members of the global community. Hopefully one day these countries will be fragmented into smaller entities in a similar fashion to the Eastern Bloc back in the 90s.

And that's how farcical this has become.

Somebody is benefiting from the situation and it's not Japan or South Korea.

Posted in: G7 leaders to open summit focused on world economy See in context

They're calling it a "counter-summit" and have a packed schedule of conferences and workshops along the Basque coast to protest social and economic inequality, climate change, migration policies and other concerns.

No better place for it. People power needs to triumph over the so-called leaders. They care nothing for us.

He got schooled by Macron. That was entertaining.

The main sticking point in that deal was the so-called Irish backstop, designed to prevent the return of customs checks on the border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom

For now.

He's not wrong. American foreign policy under this administration is pure poison. In fact, most administrations with the occasional exception from time to time.

I think liberals need to relax, really

I think you need to stop calling me a liberal. I'm very relaxed unless some clown comes up to me and makes fun of mine or anyone else's accent. Then, they'll get a milkshake over their fancy suit. The PotUS is a fool, a jester, a sideshow diversion from important issues. He'll be out/jailed/etc sooner or later.

But a whole generation has been enabled by his bigotry. That's going to take some healing and educating to overcome.

Posted in: Marvel films to lose Spider-Man as Sony deal breaks down: reports See in context

DS-9 started deviating from the originals and Voyager stank. Then the movies started turning into soap operas too. I gave up after that, around 1998 or so.

DS9 was brilliant, a real change from the somewhat tired formula and a forerunner to the magnificent BSG. Voyager took a while to get going, admittedly. Once Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine) joined the cast, it took off. I don't rate the Star Trek films after First Contact, until the Kelvin Timeline. They were good fun. Are they canon? Don't care - they were entertaining. Discovery is compelling, although it takes a couple of episodes to get into and season 2 is top drawer. Not sure how they can top it...

No interest in more Superhero movies, but "The Boys" is the best series I've seen this year.

The Boys is very much typical of Irish writer Garth Ennis, he's always been into mischief and turning the genre on its head. The superhero as a morally corrupt entity isn't entirely new - see Alan Moore and Grant Morrison's stuff - but The Boys is so in your face and darkly comic. Not one for younger Spiderman fans!

I'm ok with Spiderman leaving the MCU for now. They don't want to rely on him too much. Loved the Raimi films (apart from the average 3rd one) and loved the Tom Holland iteration.

But I'd say the most experimental and fresh take was the recent Into the Spiderverse movie. My head's still spinning after seeing it!

Ignorant Americans, sadly, are very vocal and of course when the #1 ignoramus is the PotUS, of course there's going to be coverage.

I would like to reiterate that the majority of Americans are not bigoted and prone to this kind of idiocy.

That said, it's important to stop this kind of racist behavior. Even if it means butting into someone's conversation, if you hear this.

It's not funny, it never has been.

Horrible and misleading headline. But of course, she's a strong and popular woman who's been forced to defend herself, so it must be a "rant", right?

We'd rather not be like the US, thanks all the same. Did anyone read his comments about Kashmir the other day?

Or attacking ally Denmark, whilst pimping for international despot and destabilizer Putin?

Quite shocking; as in, he hasn't got a clue.

Yes, sad, but still doesn’t change the relationship.

Relationships change. History shows us that. You were at war with the UK back in the 19th century, remember?

Not so long ago, Saddam Hussein was an ally of the US, when Iran and Iraq were at war.

Yeah and we will all be riding Unicorns one day as well, trust me, it’s a known fact

That got you rattled. UN monitors are often sent in to observe elections, it could easily happen in the US under the Trump junta. And plenty of people already boycott US goods, it's not a stretch that one day your country could be hit with sanctions. You've already got the trade wars.

Dunno, I used to go to Hawaii twice a year and been a couple of times to Alaska, they all seem happy and healthy.

Did you notice the Hawaiian flags, as opposed to American flags flying in parts of the Big Island and Oahu?

Anyway, this is the usual spiel about how some think they can buy anyone and anything because they have the money. The might is right option.

It's not going to fly with Greenland. The US does not get to dictate to other nations like Greece and it certainly doesn't get to purchase other nations.

Yeah, that’s what they said about Hawaii and Alaska, you never know for the right price.

Oh, I know.

With such blatant disregard for humans and their homes, being seen as commodities to be bought and sold, it's hardly surprising that slavery lasted so long in your country.

But that won’t change the outcome of the strategic relationship we need with the Saudis.

You don't need it. It's a sponsor of terrorism and behind the proxy war in Yemen. The pursuit of money results in the deaths of millions.

Personally, I wish they would move the U.N. out of the US, let Trump turn the building into grand condominiums.

Maybe. Maybe one day the UN will have to act against the US with sanctions. Who knows?

The UK doesn’t have that kind of cash. Come on!

I'm not British. I'm giving you a scenario where another country decides to buy large tracts of your country. Or maybe even the whole thing. Because, y'know, mineral resources and real estate.

Would you be ok with this?

If the United States and allied nations do not heed this warning the time may come when it is too late to stop the most militarily and economically powerful dictatorship in the history of this planet.

It's never too late to stop a dictatorship, whether in Beijing or Washington.
