The U.S. Government is following the propaganda formula used by Joseph Goebbels that was devised by Sigmund Freud’s nephew, Edward Bernays. The basic idea is to keep repeating a lie enough times so that eventually the masses believe it. The “Russia hacked the election” propaganda is the perfect example. Hillary Clinton first mentioned it in reference to “Russia hacked the DNC emails” during one of the debates. That lie transformed into the “Russia hacked the election” false-narrative repeated every 30 seconds on Fox News, CNN and the greater mainstream media. In truth, to this day not one single shred of evidence has been produced to support the claim. And yet, the lie perpertuates and the public fears Russia. Charles Dickens could not have scripted a better socio-political parody.

This year, as of yet, North Korea has not been responsible for a single death of a foreign national. Nor has the tiny communist state ever used a nuclear weapon against an enemy like the US did with its immoral and hellish destruction of two Japanese cities, Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the conclusion of WWII.
On the other hand, since the start of the Trump Presidency, US-backed forces have been responsible for the deaths of some 3700 civilians in Mosul, Iraq.** This is not to mention its murderous armed strikes in Yemen and Afghanistan. Nor is American aggression limited to direct military action, but its arms supply sales to despots and its puppets has escalated tensions and makes conflicts that do break out much more brutal.
Fortunately, for the future of global peace, US hegemony is coming to an end. The nation is hopelessly broke while its welfare/warfare economy is beyond reform and faltering badly which means that when the inevitable collapse does happen, it will mean the end or a serious pull back of the Empire. A similar situation took place in Great Britain in 1945 after it took part in another senseless global conflict which liquidated the British Empire once and for all.
