It took them until recently to figure that out? lol I guess America isn't the only place where a majority of the people are mindless bots.

Other countries do not dictate the laws here in the US. If you want a legally binding treaty that requires a 2/3 vote in the Senate. Both of those deals would of had difficulty achieving 1/2, especially the Iran deal.

Now that's a new concept.

I don't think they have ever talked about the instability of the USA dollar before.

WOW.

This isn't something to happen in the short term....but it shows how other countries are changing views on the USA and its role in the world.
To be honest Carney should stop making his mouth go, he can do that when we finally get rid of him as Govenor of the Bank of England in January.

Every major State war since the Napoleonic Wars has been fought over markets and currency use in said markets.

Maybe it's time to give this nonsense a rest, eh folks?

In the past, many countries may not have LIKED what the USA does, but they knew that treaties were treaties, and the USA actually would honor them. That trust is gone. Everyone is aware that Trump will at some point not be the President, however, they look at the Senate licking Trump's shoes and behind, and say to themselves that they have no faith a Trump or a Senate that looks like it does now won't be elected again.

In other words, all the goodwill the USA built for 70 years after WW2, has eroded.

Based on what? Treaties are being broken now but not before? Show proof of this.
Ask the indigenous about treaties and how much they like America.

That's not true at all and you have no proof. So Iranians loved it when we helped over throw their country in 1953? Middle Easterners love it when we go in and murder innocents with drones when the facts say 90% of those killed are not the target. This was long before Trump.

Other nations have hated America for a long time and Trump had nothing to do with it. You lost, get over it and quit making things up. It's childish.

"I" didn't lose. Americans did.

I'm not an American.
