How appropriate that this should happen just as ITV is trailing a new documentary by John Pilger about agitation by the United States for us all to see China as the new, big Enemy.

The trailer ends with a shot of a fleet of military ships, presumably from the USA as the voice-over shouts, “America is back!”

… To which Yr Obdt Srvt, viewing, was heard to respond: “Like herpes.”

It’s crazy-talk time, folks.

These military-industrial goons reckon they can make us think whatever they want – all they have to do is fill our TV screens and newspapers with their propaganda.

Don’t be fooled.

Don’t let them dictate what you think.

See the world as it is, not as they want you to see it.

Think for yourself.

Donald Trump risks opening up a major diplomatic dispute with China before he has even been inaugurated after speaking on the telephone on Friday with Tsai Ing-wen, the president of Taiwan.

The call, confirmed by four people, is believed to be the first between a US president or president-elect and a leader of Taiwan since diplomatic relations between the two were cut in 1979.

Although it is not clear if the Trump transition team intended the conversation to signal a broader change in US policy towards Taiwan, the call is likely to infuriate Beijing which regards the island as a renegade province.
