Looking ahead, the IMF forecasts this to become the new status quo, with India expected to leap further ahead of the UK up to 2027 – making India the fourth largest economy by that time, too, and leaving the UK behind in sixth.
India’s growth is accompanied by a period of rapid inflation in the UK, creating a cost of living crisis and the risk of a recession which the Bank of England predicts could last into 2024.
This situation, coupled with a turbulent political period and the continued hangover of Brexit, led to Indian output overtaking that of the UK in the final quarter of 2021, with the first of 2022 offering no change in the ranking.
Looking ahead, the IMF forecasts this to become the new status quo, with India expected to leap further ahead of the UK up to 2027 – making India the fourth largest economy by that time, too, and leaving the UK behind in sixth.
Poland could end up in a military conflict with Russia within three to ten years, Deputy Defense Minister Marcin Ociepa told the Polish newspaper DGP in an interview published on Wednesday. Warsaw would need the time remaining before the supposed war to acquire as many arms as possible, he added.
“There is a serious risk of a war with Russia,” Ociepa said, adding that the timing of this potential war depends “on how the conflict in Ukraine ends.” According to the official, it would ultimately depend on “how many years Russia will need to rebuild its military potential.” He did not identify any additional factors that could either increase or decrease the risk of a conflict.
Ociepa raised the issue while describing the “geopolitical reality” that was supposedly forcing Poland to rapidly increase its own defense potential. “We have to use this time for the maximum rearmament of the Polish Army,” he told the newspaper, as he defended what the Polish media called a “record” defense budget, augmented by certain “undefined” additional expenses.
Poland’s draft state budget for the next year entails record outlays on the armed forces, amounting to 97 billion zloty ($20.52 billion), Poland’s PAP news agency reported. Some additional funds for modernizing the army would be raised through the extra-budgetary Armed Forces Support Fund managed by the Polish state bank BGK, it added.
According to the Polish government’s statements, the fund created this past spring accepts “donations” from anyone willing to “make a contribution” to Poland’s defense. According to Ociepa, the fund could amount to some 30-40 billion zloty ($6.36-$8.48 billion). The exact sum remains “undefined” as it would depend on “financial markets,” he added.
Warsaw has been pointing to the alleged threat from Russia for quite some time. Since the launch of Moscow’s military operation in Ukraine in late February, Poland, together with the Baltic States, have been asking the US and NATO for additional military support, citing this alleged threat.
Moscow, meanwhile, has been insisting that the bloc’s expansion towards its borders was one of the reasons for the offensive in Ukraine.
On Wednesday, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg defended the bloc’s military aid to Kiev by arguing that, if successful in Ukraine, Russia might risk “an attack on NATO allies.” Poland has been one of the staunchest supporters of Kiev since the start of the conflict and has also taken a hardline position on relations with Moscow. In particular, it stopped issuing visas to Russian citizens and was one of the EU members advocating for a bloc-wide visa ban for Russians.
The UK’s new Prime Minister is essentially preparing to authorize a massive taxpayer-funded handout to ensure Britain’s underclass don’t go on criminal looting sprees. All caused by her government’s desperation to prolong a war 1500 miles away.
Police in the UK are preparing for a widespread “breakdown in public order” caused by the cost of living crisis if new Prime Minister Liz Truss doesn’t authorize a big enough government handout.
After a huge spike next month, energy bills are set to soar to around £6,522 a year by next April, a level that threatens to push a third of the country into poverty.
A leaked national strategy paper obtained by the Times reveals that police chiefs fear “economic turmoil and financial instability” has the “potential to drive increases in particular crime types.”
Shoplifting, burglary, and vehicle theft, as well as online fraud and blackmail, are all expected to soar as people desperately try to make ends meet, with criminal opportunists also eager to justify their actions.
Having already noticed an increase in some offenses, the National Police Chiefs’ Council report cautions that “a more complex and unpredictable risk is the chance of greater civil unrest, as a response to prolonged and painful economic pressure.”
One MP briefed by local police said if the new Prime Minister, almost certain to be Liz Truss, doesn’t introduce a big enough government handout, it would “push more people towards crime and lead to public unrest.”
“If the support doesn’t meet expectations, they would be expecting similar scenes to 2011,” said the MP, referring to the London riots which also spread to other parts of the country.
“A senior officer at one force in the north of England told a local MP that without significant government intervention they feared a return to the febrile conditions that led to the London riots in 2011,” states the article.
With over a million people vowing to stop paying their energy bills, there are also fears that large numbers would drive away from petrol stations without paying.
Emily Spurrell, Merseyside police, and crime commissioner, even suggested that people who steal milk, food, or nappies for their children wouldn’t be prosecuted, an approach that hasn’t worked out so well in big American cities on the east and west coast.
Meanwhile, the government is also preparing for phone lines and computer systems to fail as a result of blackouts. An exercise code-named “Noble Birch” took place which was centered around keeping Whitehall operational during a widespread power grid failure.
As we previously highlighted, energy executives in the UK warned the government that the country faces the prospect of mass civil unrest as a result of people being unable to afford their heating and electricity bills this winter.
One senior industry figure said that when people “realize how bad this is going to get,” they could take their anger to the streets in the form of violent demonstrations.
Ten million patients – one in six of the population – missed out on NHS treatment, including hundreds of thousands suffering life threatening conditions such as heart disease, strokes, asthma and diabetes.
It shows hospital waits, emergency ambulance delays, and “persistent” mental health problems at “record” levels since pandemic measures were introduced. But despite government “catch up efforts”, it finds tens of thousands of deadly conditions are still being missed.
“75,000 people have pledged to strike on October 1st! If the government & energy companies refuse to act then ordinary people will! Together we can enforce a fair price and affordable energy for all,” tweeted “Don’t Pay UK,” an anonymous group spearheading the effort to have more than one million Brits boycott paying their power bill by Oct. 1.
The strike comes as an inflation storm of high energy prices has obliterated household incomes. Brits are the most miserable in three decades as inflation is expected to hit 13%. And while Bank of England (BoE) Governor Andrew Bailey hiked interest rates the most in 27 years to tame inflation, risks are mounting of a recession.
On Oct. 1, the average household will pay almost £300 a month for power, the BoE warned. Couple surging power costs with negative real wage growth, and it becomes apparent households are being squeezed. This excludes soaring prices for shelter, food, and petrol at the pump — this trend is unsustainable and could result in social instabilities.
British news outlet Glasgow Live said the strike is similar to the “action in the late 1980s and ’90s to fight against the poll tax brought in by PM Margaret Thatcher. In protest, 17 million people refused to pay.”
UK financial journalist and broadcaster Martin Lewis said this about the strike:
“I think I can categorise it more accurately now, the big movement that I am seeing is an increase of growth in people calling for a non-payment of energy bills, mass non-payment. Effectively a consumer strike on energy bills and getting rid of the legitimacy of paying that.
“We are getting close to a Poll Tax moment on energy bills coming into October and we need the Government to get a handle on that, because once it starts becoming socially acceptable not to pay energy bills people will stop paying energy bills and you’re not going to cut everyone off.”
Meanwhile, Ofgem (UK energy regulator) Chief Executive Jonathan Brearley told BBC Radio 4’s Today on Saturday that people shouldn’t join the strike for two reasons.
“First of all, it will drive up costs for everyone across the board. And secondly, if you are facing difficulty in paying your bill, the best thing you can do is get in touch with your energy company.”
He added: ‘I would not encourage anyone to withhold their paying their bill because that just damages things further and it will impact them personally.’
Last week, the UK government slammed the movement, calling it “highly irresponsible.”
“This is highly irresponsible messaging, which ultimately will only push up prices for everyone else and affect personal credit ratings,” a government spokesperson was quoted by The Independent.
Don’t Pay UK believes 6.3 million UK households will be pushed into power bill poverty this winter, with millions more feeling the stress of out-of-control inflation.
Perhaps the movement’s involvement will be an excellent proxy for the growing discontent festering among Brits that could result in civil unrest this winter as millions will struggle with keeping the lights on, the furnace hot, and putting food on the table.
The Governor of the Bank of England has warned of “apocalyptic” global food price rises and said he is “helpless” in the face of surging inflation as the economy is battered by the war in Ukraine.
Andrew Bailey said he has “run out of horsemen” when counting the shocks facing Britain, with runaway energy and food costs driven by global market forces beyond his control.
Prices are rising at the fastest rate in 30 years, creating a “very big income shock” that is expected to intensify in the coming months with a risk of double-digit inflation before the end of the year.
Mr.Bailey told MPs on the Treasury Select Committee that he is increasingly concerned about a further surge in food costs if Ukraine, a major crop grower, is unable to ship wheat and cooking oils from its warehouses because of a Russian blockade.
The Governor said that he had spoken to Ukraine’s finance minister and added: “The [risk] I’m going to sound rather apocalyptic about I guess is food.
“Ukraine does have food in store but it can’t get it out at the moment. While [the finance minister] was optimistic about crop planting, he said at the moment we have no way of shipping it out as things stand, and it is getting worse.
“That is a major worry. It is not just a major worry for this country, it is a major worry for the developing world.
“I am by no stretch of the imagination a military strategist, but whatever can be done to help Ukraine get its food out would be a huge contribution.”
The comments from Mr. Bailey are likely to increase pressure on the Bank from Conservative MPs who are increasingly exasperated that he failed to act sooner.
Many experts believe the institution acted too slowly in increasing interest rates as prices took off last year, and it has also been criticized for failing to reduce its quantitative easing money-printing program over the past decade.
The bleak assessment will also likely add to pressure on the Treasury to hold an emergency Budget to tackle the cost of living crisis, after Rishi Sunak, the Chancellor, chose to raise taxes at the same times as incomes were being squeezed.
Food prices are already surging because of fears about disruption. Ukraine supplies large parts of the Middle East with grain, and there is a risk that families will be unable to afford to eat unless a solution is found. Wheat prices rose as much as 6pc on Monday.
The Governor also admitted that the Bank has little hope of bringing inflation back to its 2pc target, with prices already climbing by 7pc and a further surge expected in the coming months.
Asked by MPs on the Treasury Select Committee if he felt “helpless” to control inflation, Mr Bailey said: “Yes.”
He said: “It is a very very, more than uncomfortable – I am trying to think of a word that is even more severe than that – it is a very very difficult place to be.
“To forecast 10pc inflation and to say there is not a lot we can do about 80pc of it, I can tell you it is an extremely difficult place to be. We have to recognise the reality of the situation we face.”
The traditional policy requires the Bank to raise interest rates to combat high inflation, which works by raising borrowing costs and slowing the domestic economy. But most price rises currently are coming from global markets, so this would have little effect in the short run.
Instead, the Bank has only increased rates from 0.1pc in December to 1pc now in the hope of stopping these cost increases feeding into the wider economy.
Once the energy price shock has passed it hopes inflation will fall back to 2pc.
So far the biggest impact on the UK has come through soaring gas bills and higher petrol prices, which could worsen depending on the supply of fossil fuels from Russia.
The series of shocks to inflation are so severe that a Cabinet minister criticized the Bank over the weekend for failing in its “one job – to keep inflation at around 2pc”.
Another cabinet minister told The Telegraph that Government figures are “now questioning its independence”.
Mr. Bailey hit back that the Bank’s independence and the trust placed in it to bring inflation back down are vital at a time of rampant price rises.
He said: “This is the biggest test of the monetary policy framework that we have had in its 25 years.
“What I would say to these people is, this is when the independence of the Bank and the target framework and the nominal anchor matter more than ever – more than in the easy times.”
If you have enough time here is the whole discussion:
He implied that he would be prepared to raise rates to control inflation even if that led to a recession, saying: “We have to get [inflation] back to target. And that is clear.”
Mr. Bailey suggested that he does not expect higher rates to trigger a house price crash, arguing that growth is likely to cool as the crisis bites but a “structural” shortage of properties will prevent a plunge.
Sir Dave Ramsden, a deputy governor at the Bank, said that it was hard to disentangle the impact that a post-Brexit labour shortage has had on inflation, given that data suggests the European Union and the US are both dealing with similar price surges and many countries are suffering more than the UK. Mr. Bailey added that he still believes Brexit will have a negative impact on trade over the longer term.
Meanwhile, the Confederation of British Industry called on the Chancellor to step in with extra help for poor households and for struggling companies.
Tony Danker, the business group’s director-general said it is crucial “to help people facing real hardship now; it’s the moral underpinning of our economy and society”.
“Putting pounds in the pockets of people struggling the most should not be delayed,” he said, adding that it is also vital to “start stimulating business investment now”, potentially by extending the Recovery Loan Scheme to help businesses get back on track after the pandemic and now the energy price shock.

The U.K. has for many decades been the United States’ junior partner in pushing for an aggressive and imperialist foreign policy, but in the Ukraine war it may be the U.K. that’s pushing the U.S. to adopt a more aggressive stance in confronting Russia, potentially leading to a nuclear confrontation between the two great powers.
Jimmy and journalist Michael Tracey discuss the latter’s recent Substack piece about how even members of the allegedly anti-war left in the U.K. have adopted a belligerent stance against Russia.
Michael Tracey writes: There’s a chap called Tobias Ellwood who’s spent the past week doggedly promoting his latest idea to save Western civilization. “From a military perspective,” Ellwood explained during a recent speaking engagement, it’s never been more urgent to impose a “humanitarian sea corridor” off the coast of Ukraine. This would involve an outright naval intervention by NATO in the Black Sea — with the objective being to prevent Russia from seizing control of the strategically important city of Odessa. Perhaps upon commencement of this mission, Ellwood suggested, listless denizens of “The West” will finally come to appreciate the existential stakes of the conflict now before us, and “accept that we are actually in a 1938 period, but actually worse.” The double “actually” was presumably included for maximum emphasis.

As many of my readers already know I am not the biggest fan of Vladimir Putin, and for good reason. The war in Ukraine is not a factor; rather, it’s Putin’s duplicity, or at the very least it’s the manner in which he has been presented to conservatives. The notion that Putin is “anti-globalist” has been circulating within the alternative media for at least a decade now and frankly there’s not an ounce of truth to it.
No, he never kicked the Rothschilds out of Russia, they’ve had banking operations in Moscow for many years. Putin has been close friends with New World Order advocate Henry Kissinger since before he became leader of Russia, it’s all described in his autobiography ‘First Person.’ And, Putin has been heavily involved in the World Economic Forum for many years, and only last year Russia joined Klaus Schwab’s 4th Industrial Revolution Initiative. There are claims that this is all about Putin “keeping his enemies close,” but that’s just childish naivety. No one keeps the globalists close unless they agree with the globalists on a majority of concepts.
Yes, the WEF told Putin he was a bad boy for invading Ukraine, and Russia is not invited to their next big conference. However, the WEF did the exact same thing after Russia annexed Crimea, and a year later Putin was invited right back in again. Fake squabbles between the globalists and their allies are for the benefit of the public, they don’t mean a thing in reality.
I don’t really care about the Ukraine war either way. There are no good guys in this fight. Both sides are puppets of elitist interests. The effects on the civilian population of Ukraine are unfortunate, but the rest of the world is about to face similar or worse threats in the near term because of economic decline. My purpose here is not to defend Russia, my purpose is to dismantle the obvious propaganda. There is a reason why the establishment is so interested in getting the public riled up about Ukraine.
Ultimately, the Ukraine war is immensely convenient for the globalists. Think about it – The very moment their covid mandates begin to fall apart and more than half the world refuses the vax passports, suddenly the invasion of Ukraine strikes, and all is forgotten? It’s as if someone flipped a magic switch and the mainstream media’s covid propaganda machine immediately shut down, all at once. The war on skeptics of the vaccines is mostly gone. The push for the mandates is gone. Even the masks are basically gone. All the restrictions which authoritarians argued were essential for “saving lives” now no longer matter. They have vanished because they never did matter.
Now we’re on to the newer bigger distraction of potential World War III. This was facilitated by Putin and expanded on by NATO countries into the realm of economic conflict, which is where the real war is happening. The globalists have shifted from using covid as the excuse for inflation and economic decline to using Russia and Ukraine as the excuse for inflation and economic decline. Again, it’s all very convenient.
In the meantime, there have been epic amounts of theater and distraction surrounding the reality on the ground in Ukraine. I don’t think I have ever seen propaganda narratives implemented in real-time on this level before. I’m talking about immediate agenda-driven lies developed the very moment any event happens in Ukraine and spread via social media. The disinformation is moving so fast there’s often no time to examine it before the next event occurs; and maybe that’s the point. When the public is bombarded with lie after lie, sometimes mixed with a little truth, they have no time to react or to think.
The general thrust of the whole situation, though, is that you are not supposed to think. All you need to do is accept the maxim that “Russia bad guy, Ukraine good guy.” There are even a host of Republicans and fake GOP conservatives out there calling for US boots on the ground in Ukraine, or at least the assassination of Putin. Why should conservatives, or anyone else in the West, be so invested in Ukraine that we are considering WWIII? What does this conflict have to do with us? In terms of the general public, it has NOTHING to do with us. Not a thing.
To understand why we need to discuss the many deceptions surrounding the Ukraine situation along with the many hypocrisies that undermine the narrative that westerners and specifically Americans need to be involved in…
War Crimes? The Invasion Of Ukraine vs. The Invasion Of Iraq
Before I get into this, I need to reiterate that Neo-con politicians are NOT conservatives. They never have been and they never will be. They are fake conservatives that wear our ideals like a costume in order to infiltrate and influence. Political frauds like John McCain (good riddance), Lindsay Graham, Mike Pence, etc. claim to be on our side but consistently support leftist and globalist initiatives in the meantime, all while actively seeking to chip away at our constitutional rights.
It’s important to remember that the same Neo-Cons calling for US involvement in Ukraine today are also the people that demanded US involvement in Iraq and the rest of the Middle East 20 years ago. You know, that “War on Terror” that never ends and the search for “WMDs” that turned up nothing? Do you remember that? The Neo-cons were primarily responsible. The irony of them demonizing Putin over his comparatively restrained invasion of Ukraine should not be lost on us.
The invasion of Iraq alone resulted in around 200,000 civilian deaths according to official estimates. The war had absolutely nothing to do with 9/11, WMDs, or any associations between Saddam Hussein and terrorists. In fact, there was no direct rationale for the US to be in Iraq at all. Yet, we are still there to this day after an aggressive regime change and years of fighting which destroyed a generation of Iraqis. Was there a massive global push to “cancel” the US in retaliation? Nope. Actually, nothing happened.
Even today, I have not heard a single media pundit bring up the point that accusing Russia of “war crimes” is hypocritical given the US invasion of Iraq and the damage it caused. Why is no one talking about this?
Russia Is Losing The War?
Frankly, I believe that ALL modern militaries are overrated in terms of effectiveness. Reliance on technology has pervaded the new military ethos and made them soft. This includes the US military which just spent nearly 20 years fighting a war in Afghanistan with top-tier drone technology at their disposal, and to no avail. Russia’s military is closest to the US in terms of technological advantages, but I think a lot of people have watched far too many movies when it comes to war and their expectations of how an invasion is implemented are inflated.
Invasions are usually not successful in a few weeks. They take time. Maybe Russia will fail, but it’s unlikely, and the details on the ground indicate a methodical war, not a blitzkrieg.
For example, Russia is clearly trying to avoid civilian casualties as much as possible (at least compared to the initial invasion of Iraq by the US). They have kept a large amount of infrastructure intact, including the power grid in many parts of the country, which is what I would have targeted first if I am to be honest about the strategic advantages. The fact that Ukraine has had internet this whole time, even without Elon Musk’s Starlink system, boggles my mind. It’s as if Putin is trying to drag out the war.
Also, note that Russia is operating around most major cities instead of through them. I’m not really seeing the actions of a vicious Genghis Khan here. My suspicion is that the “Russia has failed” narrative is designed more for western audiences to give us a false sense of security.
Russia Is Isolated?
No, it’s not. Not even close. At least at this time, Russia still has all the markets of the BRICS nations at its disposal. That means China, India, Brazil, and South Africa (among others) are ALL still trading vigorously with Russia and Russian exports are still flowing widely. India and China together hold 36% of the world’s population and have a massive demand for Russian energy and food exports; so please tell me again about how Russia is isolated and is about to cry for mercy.
Not only that, but China signed a 30-year gas and oil deal right before Russia invaded Ukraine, and India is now developing a trade deal that cuts out the US dollar as the reserve currency. Basically, all western sanctions are doing is accelerating the fall of the dollar and inviting the very scenario the globalists at the WEF and IMF have always wanted – A new global basket currency system that they intend to control.
Why is the media and the White House claiming Russia has been cut off from the world? Again, I suspect this narrative is only for the benefit of conning the western masses into a false sense of security. They are trying to make people feel safe in the notion that international “cancel culture” is working when cancel culture is actually a pathetic and impotent strategy used by cowards in order to avoid real confrontation while imagining they have power.
US Sanctions On Russian Oil Are Causing High Gas Prices And Putin Is To Blame?
Uh, no. This claim is nonsense. Gas prices were rising well before the invasion of Ukraine, and the Federal Reserve is mostly to blame due to its constant fiat money creation and trillions in stimulus measures that have devalued the dollar. Any economist that argues otherwise is either an idiot or a liar and I’m happy to debunk them.
That said, there’s something else the media does not talk about much, which is Europe’s reliance on Russian oil and natural gas. If you want to see actual price inflation caused by Russia, let the EU ban Russian oil imports, or watch as Putin cuts off the supply. Europe is dependent on Russian oil and gas for about 40% of overall energy production. They cannot even survive a single year without it. If Russia retaliated and blocked energy exports to Europe, the EU would have to siphon oil from many other countries, reducing global supply dramatically. This would cause gas prices to explode to double or even triple current levels.
Food And Retail Inflation Are Caused By Russia?
Again, sanctions are only helping the crisis along, but inflation was hitting historic highs well before the invasion of Ukraine. We were going to get to this point eventually anyway, but the disruption of resource exports from Russia and Ukraine is now accelerating the process. The REAL culprits behind price inflation are the bankers at the Federal Reserve along with their endless QE and fiat stimulus measures. Creating tens of trillions of dollars out of thin air and circulating them globally is a much bigger catalyst for a stagflation crisis than the Ukraine war will ever be.
There Are No Nazis In Ukraine?
It depends on how you define “Nazis.” There is in fact a national socialist part called Svaboda and they are far more prominent in Ukrainian society and in politics than many people would like to admit. Of course, these days anyone that does not agree with the dictates of the authoritarian Far-Left is now called a “Nazi,” so the accusation has lost much of its meaning. I just want to point out that the mainstream media back in 2014 was complaining about the “Neo Nazis” in Ukraine, and admonished politicians like John McCain for traveling to Kiev and shaking hands with them.
The EU even demanded that the Ukrainian government stop associating with Svaboda because of their “racist, anti-semitic and xenophobic views.” So, whether or not you agree that Svaboda is a Nazi-related entity, it is hilarious that the EU and the US media are now suddenly allies of the same Ukraine government they disparaged back in 2014 as “fascist.”
There Are No US Funded Bio Labs In Ukraine?
Yes, there are. THIS IS FACT. The existence of multiple bio-labs in Ukraine has been openly admitted by US officials including Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland. Nuland also indicated that these labs should not fall into Russian hands because of the dangerous “research materials” they contain; she refrained from calling them biological weapons. It is also openly admitted that US funding for these labs began during the Obama era (just as funding for the infamous Level 4 bio lab in Wuhan, China began during the Obama era). Obama himself toured the facilities before he became president and admitted that the labs contained anthrax and plague viruses.
The argument for US involvement in the Ukrainian bio-labs was that these dangerous materials needed to be properly secured and “protected.” Yeah, I’m not buying that, but at the very least it is absolutely and undeniably true that Ukraine holds multiple bio-labs, containing materials that could be used as biological weapons, and those labs have received ample funding from the US government. The amount of media lies and spin surrounding this one issue is truly impressive. Clearly, there is something about these labs that the government is trying to hide.
Do I think this is the reason Russia invaded Ukraine? No, not at all. The point remains, though, that White House and media arguments on the bio-labs are verifiable lies.
The Truth Matters…
Most of these disinformation campaigns in the media and by political officials from the White House to Neo-Cons in the GOP are obviously designed to accomplish one thing: American support for war with Russia. Frankly, Ukraine is not worth it. The displacement of refugees is saddening but war in general only EVER serves the interests of globalists and power brokers. We can’t be lured in by false narratives and the exploitation of our empathy.
NATO involvement in Ukraine, including military involvement, has been pervasive for over a decade, well before the Russian invasion of Crimea. It’s almost like Ukraine has been groomed as a powder keg for potential global war. Now, it appears the globalists are falling back on Plan B in a desperate play to distract the public from economic destruction. Putin is a part of it, Ukraine is a part of it, and most NATO governments are a part of it. The real war is not with Russia; the real war is with the establishment elites that are playing both sides of the conflict. Why sacrifice millions in a pointless engineered conflict when we can eliminate a handful of power mongers and finally live in peace?
