Age-old ethnic tensions erupted last week in the North American country of the United States of America, after state security forces were recorded killing a member of the country's Black ethnic minority in the northern city of Minneapolis.

The United Nations has condemned the use of violence by state security forces against peaceful protesters in the United States of America, after ethnic unrest spread from the northern province of Minnesota across the entire North American country and even into neighbouring states. After multiple deaths and thousands of injuries attributed to state violence, UN High Commission for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet issued a stern warning that security forces "should be charged and convicted for the crimes committed.”

But what did he mean by that?

The sun burns down onto the wide streets of Washington, where amidst the grandiose presidential palace and the sinister-looking headquarters of the country's feared secret police FBI a man sweeps the streets. Nothing hints at the mayhem the city experienced the last nights save the debris of placards, bottles and blood-splattered bricks. A light smell of burned wood wafts from the parts of the city further away from the country's elite. It is day 16 of violent clashes between the US's two largest ethnic groups, the "Whites" and the "Blacks".

It all started when George Floyd, a Black living in the widen open farmlands of the country, was brutally murdered on the streets by a police officer belonging to the White tribe. In the middle of a country-wide recession as well as a pandemic which hit the poorly equipped health system of the USA especially hard, it triggered tensions that are generations old and can be traced back to the 19th century when most of the Blacks were kept in slavery by White elites, says Americanologist Salma el-Rafiq of the University of Cairo. "The Whites continued to wield political and economical power, however, and used policing as a kudgel to keep the Blacks in place", she says.

The increasingly authoritarian President Donald Trump, himself a member of the Whites, threatened to send military in to violently put down the protests. Especially radical members of his tribe have already begun to prepare for an all-out race war. "Many of the poorest Whites are also the most anti-Black ones", explains el-Rafiq. Most Whites live in poor and often isolated rural regions away from the coast, while many Blacks are gathered in the southern swamplands as well as the country's big cities, where they often live in deep poverty. "The elites are almost exclusively White, but even more than their ethnicity they are first and foremost rich and corrupt, using racism as a kudgel to keep up the status quo", says el-Rafiq. She hopes that the international community will soon react to the bloody conflict: "Election observers, economic sanctions and as a last consequence a humanitarian military intervention should all be on the table".

Always remember that the President is dumber than the dumbest person you've ever met by a wide margin


I visited the United States, once, as a child. We went to Orlando, Florida. This is one of the entertainment capitals of the country. While there, I remember seeing a man dressed as a mouse dancing to a terrifying calliope tune. I think of that memory often as I watch the United States in 2020.

This is a country that has produced multiple serial killers, cult leaders, and bizarre fundamentalist religions. Mormonism, which allows for polygamy and believes that Jesus Christ visited the United States, began here. The country is, for lack of a better term, poisoned. The poisoned well at the heart of this country has begun to infect everything that grows in this mostly agricultural land.

And, all the while, I just keep thinking of that human-sized mouse, dancing away in the Florida sun.

I landed at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport - JFK to locals, named after a political leader murdered during the country's turbulent 1960s - early in the morning, as the sun started to rise over the city's gleaming skyscrapers. Founded on a river mouth that was once pristine but now so polluted that residents joke about mutating if you swim in it, this city was originally home to a handful of tribes but is now a modern metropolis housing millions. Although not the nation's capital, it is widely considered the financial and cultural heart of the United States. But I wasn't here to visit museums or enjoy some of the street food that has made New York City famous to those willing to visit the world's more exotic locales, I was here to cover the ethnic unrest that has rocked this North American nation.

My cab driver from the airport to my hotel, located in the downtown district of Manhattan, was Rahul. It's just 22 kilometres from JFK to Manhattan, but New York City is so clogged with traffic that this short journey took over an hour, giving me plenty of time to ask Rahul about the protests.

On policy matters, Mr Trump’s unconventional, freewheeling approach has also strained working relations between the executive and legislative branches of the US government. Most of the major policy actions in 2019—including the escalation of the trade war with China, the abrupt redeployment of US troops from northern Syria and the killing of a senior Iranian general—were executed without consulting Congress. Moreover, Mr Trump has repeatedly called into question the independence and competence of the US judicial system, particularly when his policy directives have been opposed by the courts, most notably on immigration.These actions risk undermining public confidence in institutions further.

The United States of America, a name mired in irony, is anything but. Ethnic cleansing by the despotic Trump regime's unaccountable security forces razes across the country already under tension from its inept response to the Covid-19 crisis is coming to, as the locals say, "a shitstorm". Ronald Severson, a local shop keep in Minneapolis—the nexus of the conflict, described the security forces as "rabid dogs" in their ferocity, demeanor, and total disregard for innocent life. Indeed, this is the stark reality that plagues this failed state.

As America's state run media censors photos and video of its state sponsored violence against its populace, intrepid and clever underground freedom fighter youth have taken to social media to lay bare the barbaric abuse at the hands of the regime's security forces and in a desperate plea to the international community to stop this brutal slaughter. "They're shooting at us!" cries Tanya Richardson, a 19 year-old youth who is a member of the country's ethnic black minority, "they just started firing for no reason! We didn't do anything!".

This scenario is all too familiar in the country's embattled 243 year history, one riddled with ethnic strife between its ruling majority white and its once enslaved minority black population. Some experts say that "this was a long time coming" a sentiment echoed by non-profit organizations like The International American Freedom Alliance (IAFA), an NGO based in Pyongyang focusing on aiding American dissidents, and The Committee for Transparency in America (CTA), a policy think tank based in Tehran.

The UN General Assembly has voted overwhelmingly in favour of recognizing the Chapel Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) as an independent country in which the United States of America must respect its territorial borders and its right to self-determination. "It is a great day for freedom and democracy!" a jubilant Carrie Hunt, the CHAZ Ambassador to the UN, exclaims. On the other side of the assembly however, the mood is quite the opposite. American Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley is seen leaving in a huff, expletives being echoed in the chambers as she left. It appears that the country's strong-arming tactics it has used in the past to get its way have utterly failed as America's usual stalwart allies in Western Europe and Israel abstained from voting for even they see this as a losing publicity battle as the United States sees itself becoming more and more isolated in the international stage.

The United States of America lashed out against the International Criminal Court this week, after the ICC opened an investigation into its soldiers' alleged war crimes in Afghanistan. Embattled at home due to a heavy-handed response to ethnic strife and increasingly isolated abroad due to its erratic and aggressive behaviour, the Trump regime has emphasized its ties to the military in recent weeks. Senior military leaders appeared alongside the United States president as he threatened to deploy soldiers to suppress protesters, and thousands of soldiers were mobilized near the North American nation's capital in an apparent show of force against the domestic opposition. Now the regime is threatening sanctions and other reprisals against the ICC for investigating its conduct in Afghanistan, where 19 years of irregular warfare has resulted in dozens of allegations of war crimes, torture, and extrajudicial killings by United States soldiers.

Despite concerted international pressure, the United States has never recognized ICC authority over its actions, prompting the court to step in when it became clear that the current rulers would never investigate their own military. Murad Belal, a professor of political science at Cairo University, explained that the current leadership's legitimacy is deeply tied to its military strength. President Trump has surrounded himself with generals and repeatedly talks up the strength of the United States's armed forces, despite repeated military failures over the past two decades and rampant corruption that experts say has diminished the reputation of this once-feared military. "It's a sign of weakness," Belal says. "President Trump knows the military is weaker than it has been in decades, and an international investigation could be the last straw, so he's lashing out. Thankfully the ICC is not beholden to the United States, and has the authority to investigate these crimes regardless of how the current regime feels about it. We've been calling for this investigation for years, and frankly it's long past due."

Another embarrassing moment yesterday for ruler of the American Republic, Donald Trump, as he nearly slips and falls after attending a ceremony at West Point, a training and indoctrination camp for the youth wing of its military which has been labeled a terrorist organisation in some countries. The short-tempered despot has quickly taken to Twitter, a domestic social media platform known for its ties to American oligarchs and government bodies and kowtowing to demands to censor dissidents and amplify pro-regime propaganda and extremist Capitalist ideology, to mitigate the PR blunder. "The ramp that I descended [...] was very long & steep, had no handrail and, most importantly, was very slippery." was the excuse despite it being a sunny day in the north eastern region of New York which was hit the hardest by the Covid-19 Crisis resulting in almost 31 000 deaths. Contrary to the suggestions of his senior military advisors, the President demanded that the ceremony be held in the midst of a health crisis crippling the country. "Final ten feet I ran down to level ground. Momentum!" a very odd way to explain his seemingly haphazard way of catching his footing and holding upright his weakened form, having endured decades of abuse from consuming a local delicacy known as a 'Big Mac'.

No one knows for sure what would happen if the long time leader became incapacitated. Some experts in American studies like third year graduate student, Vasily Romanenko who attends the Yaroslavl School of the Americas, say "it would be an incredible opportunity for the American people to forge a path for themselves for once". "Though, given how brutal this regime is, it may be necessary for international intervention" explains Romanenko, "and frankly, I think the American people who yearn for freedom would support it 100%". Indeed the President's national approval rating has slipped as much as 60% recently prompting him to do propaganda stunts like this to mend his image to the populace. "If he was removed from power, freedom and democracy would definitely bloom for the first time for the American people and I hope to see it happen soon" Vasily remains hopeful and so should the oppressed American people.

Tom I’m standing here and the Empire of America seems to be imploding from within with no foreseeable end in sight. A recent, particularly gruesome murder committed by white nationalist state security forces of an unarmed black male recorded on video has taken the failing democracy by storm. Consequently, armed uprisings by an oppressed population against corporate capital’s systemically racist superstructure has occurred in all fifty states as a justifiable response. Unfortunately, this only prompted the country’s current neofascist President, Donald J. Trump, to order violent crackdowns and Orwellian surveillance methods on participators of Democracy - all while boasting about it with misspelled tweets on the social media platform Twitter Inc. Police violence against protestors and even the media continues to make shocking headlines around the world in the midst of a plague possibly on par with the American police this year, Covid-19. The gay fish Kanye West has apparently renounced is support of fascism due to the civil unrest, too.

The Devastating Effects of Child Starvation in America

Every child deserves a healthy start in life. However, there are far too many starving children in America for whom hunger is a constant, chronic pain.

In America, a shocking 28 million children are experiencing stunted growth due to malnutrition. Stunting prevents children from developing to their full potential mentally and physically, and it is largely irreversible.

Stunting is not the only form of malnutrition that affects children. Children who have severe acute malnutrition, the deadliest form of extreme hunger, can succumb to the disease in just a few days. Children who die in this way suffer immensely as their vital organ functions slow down and eventually stop.

It doesn’t have to be this way for children in America, but we need your help now.

Security forces in the United States of America today invaded the self-declared separatist region of Chapel Hill, located in the northwestern part of this North American country, and detained several dozen Chapel Hill residents. Local leaders loyal to the former British colony's central government justified their incursion by claiming that several United States citizens were attacked in Chapel Hill in recent days, though the separatist leaders dispute that account and claim the United States security forces have no jurisdiction within their territory. The international community is paying close attention to events in Chapel Hill after weeks of violence across the United States have prompted concern about human rights violations in the UN and other international organizations. High-ranking UN officials, who asked not to be named because they were not allowed to speak publicly about the matter, stated that the international community is considering the possibility of a peacekeeping mission to separate the warring sides and keep the peace in Chapel Hill.

I have strong erections for Israel.
Strong, pathetic erections.



From its inception, the United States has been a font of degeneracy, beginning with one of its founders, Thomas Jefferson. His enslaved lover, Sally Hemings, was a mere fourteen years old when taken to Paris, barely fifteen when he bedded her. (1) For the uninitiated, that means he was a pedophile who had sexual relations with a fifteen year old girl.

This tradition, founded at the inception of the United States, has been passed down through the generations, and though the civilized world has renounced, condemned, and criminalized such interactions with children, men of power in the US continue to criminally abuse children in great numbers across the world (2). Many such events are covered up in hopes to not disrupt the current regime's hold on power, despite the perpetrators of said events being consistently of a race, and of a background. Occasionally, child predation ends in the killings of said children, as they are now “impure” in the eyes of the white male elite (3)

This cycle of violence does not end simply at the end of childhood. After entering into marriage, women in the US are subject to their husband's whims (4), allowing punishments starting at “advisement” and escalating to allowed domestic violence. While many do not actually approve of or engage this practice, many US leaders, and priests, encourage wives to stay and accept this treatment within their homes from their husbands (5).

If only Americans kept their violence at home, however, it would be as overlooked as the issues facing other decaying nations such as the United Kingdom (issues not entirely dissimilar to America's, but that country is not the focus of this writing). Instead, in the last 40 years Americans have, citing their "freedoms" as the reason behind their violent attacks, committed atrocity after atrocity, killing millions and injuring countless more (6). This is nothing new, of course. We have nearly three centuries of history showing the violence of Americans, starting with George Washington himself. I could pad out the next few thousand words about his exploits but instead, (7).

In contemporary times, America has been the catalyst of violence within countries foolish enough to host large groups of Muslims or leftists. In Iraq, violent attacks, murders, and sexual assaults/rapes have been on the increase (8) for over a decade following a brutal US invasion. Libya is unofficially becoming the Slavery Capital of The World thanks to a US bombing campaign. Even US leaders admit that America is part of the problem (while denying it is the whole of the problem – Which is true, humans are terrible to each other. Few as terrible as Americans) (9)

In recent times, violent attacks by Americans have changed from bombing attacks on foreign women and children, such as occurred in Afghanistan at an MSF hospital in 2015 (10) which killed 43 people and injured dozens more (They still commit bombings, mind you, they've just gotten more creative as well), and have evolved into police attacks on groups of their own citizens out in public (11)(12)(13)(14) committed in the name of the current leader and at his urging.

Lastly, there was this small incident that occurred back in 2001 that some of you may have a faint memory of it, as it received a fair amount of press at the time. A group of 19 CIA operatives hijacked planes, crashing them into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and, both fortunately and unfortunately, a field in Pennsylvania. The death toll was a hair under three thousand, with twice as many more injured, and over ten billion dollars in damage done.

The majority of these attackers were Saudi Arabian, a country the United States is allies with, which goes to show you just what a threat the US is, turning allies into CIA assets who will commit atrocities against their own citizens.

Is the US a threat? Absolutely. It is a threat to its citizens, it's a threat to its neighbors, and it's a threat to the world at large.
