    The number of migrants in Spain has exploded over 230% in the last month because Italy doesn't give a crap anymore.
    But--- but not a single party is against them because they remember Franco. Take that "uhu we don't want migrants in YOROPE and it's not racism" team.

    Oh right, you were talking about him. Guess you don't know much about him? He's our own brand of brazilian far-right and possible future president.

    Well, he is a possible president because most people who are engaged in political discussions in Brazil can't seem to be centrist.


    Or they support far left and PT.
    Or they support far right and Bolsonaro.


    Any other non extremist parties are labeled "conniving with corruption".

    Eh I think the Tories are worse off - they've got a vicious right-wing media smearing Corbyn like the Muslim(-friendly) Communist Antichrist AND a significant Blairite wing in Labour trying to weaken his position as well, yet somehow have managed to shoot themselves in the foot even with situations that could've technically been boons to them (the Grande concert bombing could've stoked the anti-immigrant/refuge and Islamophobic flames but the police force managed to turn it to a conversation about May cutting funding to them while Corbyn even managed to get support for his nuanced view of the situation, not that I don't think he's still generally fuzzy foreign policy-wise)

    Either way, we can see that both governments are easily clinching the 'worst administrations ever' title in their respective countries (and hopefully holding onto it for a good while). Also, from what I've heard I think we can add Turnbull and his Liberal Party to the 'right-wing governments making an absolute fools of themselves' pile with the recent ideological splits concerning gay marriage.

    President Trump signs a memo addressing intellectual property violations in China
    So it seems Trump has decided to start the much hyped trade war with China.I don't think it's just a co-incidence that he has done this just after the newest economy data for china is not that positive,asn shows the first sign of a slow-down.

    I wonder if china will still go ahead with their sanction implementation against N Korea.
    And i would say this has put a lid on any possible flaring up at the Doklam stand-off.Not like there would have been any conflict anyway

    Can Trump start a war in Venezuela ? I mean, would he get the votes at the Senate to go there ?

    Absolutely not. There's not even the slightest grounds that even Republican warhawks would go for.

    You're still making the mistake to think random idiot comments suggest real plans, and not just his mouth running brain free.

    I'm making no mistake. I was just asking how the Senate was feeling because all I got was just the Nebraska senator (Ben Sasse) saying:"No. Congress obviously isn't authorizing war in Venezuela" "Nicolas Maduro is a horrible human being, but Congress doesn't vote to spill Nebraskans' blood based on who the executive lashes out at today."


    What would the Senate would vote a war for though ?

    Technically speaking, the U.S. has not officially declared war since WW2. It's usually called "military interventions" or something along those lines.

    So Nicolás Maduro is rallying against a foreign invasion from the U.S. It appears to be resonating with lots of people. Features a special guest appearance by Mike Pence.

    Oh, I did not know that. I would think with the Korean War, Vietnam War, etc., it was a declaration. I guess I did not pay much attention to how it all went about.

    How sickening. These people just want to take advantage of the opium and minerals which Afghanistan possesses.

    Will we see a new reenactment of the 1842 retreat from Kabul ?

    You would be right, if we were living in the 90's or early 00's.

    But, now, we have Lava-Jato, and more important, Sérgio Moro. As much as the fake news loves to say that the Lava-Jato is just a way to persecute Lula and PT, it is not going to stop with the possible arrest of Lula, it will investigate any corruption, regardless of party (and with Cármen Lúcia's decission, it will have full support for another full year), so yeah, 2018 will be a chaotic year for Brazil.


    Nowadays, "Fora Temer" is not a left or right catchphrase, is somewhat, magicaly a brazilian motto. And not just Temer, but other corrupt politicians.
