The United States Is a Dead Man Walking

PC ROBERTS—Apparently, Washington has succeeded in delaying the final liberation of Syria from US-supported terrorists. However, the Russian military, if not the Russian government, understands that at this late stage in the game, Russia cannot back down without being inundated with massive provocations as the price of its rectitude. This is why there is an armada of Russian navy off the coast of Syria armed with Russia’s new hypersonic missiles against which the US has no defense whatsoever.

Since being dumb is a form of progressive debilitation, a sort of “negative feedback loop” as really brainy guys like to put it, each round of lies, each assault on reality, is less likely to be resisted or even remotely detected by the beaten down, pacified populace. A huge part of this is simply the organic result of living under unrestricted capitalism, with few USAers ready to disinherit themselves from their birthright, the American Dream.
