  1. This would certainly qualify as a black swan, or not. Maybe next spring if not this one. http://mirrorspectrum.com/behind-the-mirror/the-van-rensburg-prophecies-predict-a-russian-usa-nuclear-war

  2. US foreign service is a joke. Ambassadors are picked based on political donations not merit. Staff by and large don’t speak the language of the country they are in. The result is faulty baseline intelligence from which people with no risk make bad assumptions.

    Those few in USFS that take their mission seriously are to be praised. There are just too few of them.

    • That and the ‘foreign service’ is just another tentacle/organ of the CIA/NSA
      Deep state parasitic class.
