You do know the Chy-nese copies the American F-22 design don't you?

But it's proven to be a dud, unlike the American F-22s.

Losers!

...one that should be noted.

Gone a beacon of truth for Americans. News, as in the truth, for the People to make their own decisions has been usurped by "Americans" who are not prepared to make their policies known in an open atmosphere of dialog and debate.

...certainly, such behaviour indicates weakness. And it will surely be exploited by the very powers that are a threat to all of us, not "them".

https://www.theguardian.com/media/2020/ ... -cancelled

The denial of visa renewals follows a purge of executives and senior journalists from VOA and other state-run broadcasters under the authority of the US Agency for Global Media (USAGM) by its new Trump-appointed CEO, Michael Pack.


“These journalists are uniquely situated to tell the world what’s really going on inside repressive regimes, and their reporting has illuminated all kinds of atrocities and other concerns,” Capus told the Guardian.

“The USAGM and the state department, and American embassies, all worked to protect these people and, and in some cases, visas were offered, or secured for them. To send these brave journalists home to face a truly uncertain fate is enormously cruel and wildly inappropriate.”


One of the journalists fired by Pack compared the new releases to official statements of the North Korean regime.

“It is a bit Dear Leader like, isn’t it?” the journalist said. “The one about him saying he’s been flooded with people welcoming him with open arms is just ludicrous – for him to say that he’s trying to improve morale and at the same time he’s sending Voice of America journalists back home to places like Thailand, or Cambodia or China. How in the world is that going to improve employee morale when you’re sending people home, perhaps to their deaths? And that’s not hyperbole.”

A prime example of the sickness that pervades in this day and age.

America being accused of stopping free speech and open debate, despite having the most free media in the world and the Bill of Rights.

And yet, when someone legitimated accuses Chy-na of fascism, they are met with scorn.

What planet are we on?
