    Ignore your grudges against religion and Islam and take a minute to listen to the straight forward explanations of this Trinidadian gentleman.

    Even if the US withdraws, the Russians or even the Chinese will step in to control the region.

    There is no need. The region Will be quite fine if the US left and took their CIA funded jihadis home with them.

    If the US leaves, the Russians and Chinese will move in. The Russians are already taking over Syria.

    Again, there will be no need. Russia have Crimea and Syrian port now. China will secure BRI with a base in Pakistan near Kashmir if they can convince the Indians. Iraq will be left in Iran's hands if the US pulls out. Thats a big IF as I highly doubt any peaceful withdrawal will occur. My money is actually on an increased US deployment in Iraq.

    US power is already waning. Look 30 years into the future, I don’t see Iraq occupied by Americans. Russia and China are both empires and empires will expand if they can financially and if their military is ready. This isn’t a choice by their citizens but the rule of nature.

    I was talking more short term. In 30 years I doubt there will be a hegemonic US of A as we see today, it'll be replaced by Greater Israel as the new hegemon of the world.

    Here is a video that shows both missiles hitting the plane. It really bugs the f' out of US haters when their own "team" is the bad guy/f#uckup in any given situation, doesn't it?

    And how, pray tell, did the recorder of this video know exactly when and where to turn on his camera and film this act of callous murder? You yanks can't see past your crooked noses to unveil the dirty fingerprints your leaders leave around the world.
