Scott Ritter on how the US sees China, and how it sees itself – don’t miss it !
Hard-hitting truth-telling. Why the US political elite / military industrial complex (MIC) / main-stream media (MSM) is not rational. Facts don't matter to this elite; the lies they tell, that they know are lies are just for the sheep, who are also victims ... On how the transition to multi-polarity is as dangerous as it is welcome (and inevitable) ... US (and vassals) world hegemony versus world development (what the rest of the world wants, has been denied, and needs); the conflict we are in is win-lose trying to conquer the possibility of win-win. YT comment : "China is not your enemy. The people who told you that China is your enemy are the real enemy".
