In an “emergency meeting” the General Assembly of the United Nations voted overwhelmingly to condemn the American decision to relocate the US embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem.
Never mind that it’s none of the UN’s business where the United States places any of its embassies
Never mind that the United States gives far more to the UN’s coffers than any other member nation
Never mind that not a single one of our NATO alleged “allies” voted with us
Never mind that Israel captured East Jerusalem after they were attacked by a Arab-Muslim nation
With the obvious exception of the United States voting against its own condemnation, the remaining eight nations voting against the resolution have a combined square mile area roughly the size of North and South Carolina combined.
But then again, most UN member states would face an uphill battle to qualify for an American area code.
One hundred and twenty eight countries voted in favor condemning the United States
Nine countries voted against
Thirty five abstained
Twenty one nations didn’t even bother to show up for the vote
Yet in a strange sort of way, the abstaining and absent nations very well may have been paying attention to Amb. Haley’s promise that the United States would remember who voted to condemn their sugar daddy.
128 countries voted in favor of the resolution rejecting President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, 9 voted against, 35 abstained.
Once one of the most feared military machines in the history of warfare, the army of the German nation has figuratively dropped its weapons and retreated to their tents for nap time in a recent NATO combat exercise in Norway. As reported by Justin Huggler of Britain’s the Telegraph news service on Apr. 10, 2016, and also by Tom Batchelor of yet another British newspaper The Express on Apr.11, 2016, newly mandated overtime rules dictate that the Bundeswehr (Federal Army) can only actually be on duty a mere 41-hours per seven day period.

Despite a handful of Western media outlets claiming a relatively unknown treaty binding the United States and Great Britain to the defense of the Ukraine may lead to armed conflict with Russia, a closer look indicates American and British intervention may not be in the offing, as reported by the right-of-center The American Spectator and France24.com on Mar. 3, 2014; and London’s The Telegraph and The Daily Mail on Feb. 28, 2014.
“This follows a pattern of fumbled reactions by the Obama administration…”
War clouds are gathering in the East China Sea as the Beijing government as sent a none-too-veiled threat towards Tokyo over the now disputed international airspace, as well as airspace over sovereign Japanese soil at the very south of the East Asian nation, as reported by The Washington Free Beaconon Dec. 3, 2013.
The communist super-power has decided to flex its muscles by claiming hundreds of square miles of international airspace at the geographic juncture of southern Japan, northern Taiwan and eastern China.
As China rattles sabers over its newly claimed airspace in the East China Sea directly over Japanese sovereign soil, as reported by the Israeli news portal Arutz Sheva on Dec. 2, 2013, one thing that many international watchers agree would rattle China’s cage would be a militarily-allied and nuclear-armed Japan and Republic of Korea (ROK).
Especially a nuclear Japan and ROK independent of any U.S. military control.
Tensions are still running high since China claimed international airspace over Japan’s Senkaku Islands, the southernmost of the 3,000 islands comprising the Japanese archipelago.
