US, Allies Seek to Boot Russia From G20 in Ongoing Effort to Isolate Moscow

2021g20

The White House is placing sweeping sanctions on Russia and pressuring every country to follow America's lead, but the effort to isolate Moscow does not end at economic warfare. Western states are seeking to remove Russia from the Group of Twenty - G20.  The G20 - 19 countries and the EU are members - was formed in 1999 to allow the nations that made up 90% of the world's global product to work together. Reuters reports that several Western officials are looking to remove Russia rather than attempting to use the organization to facilitate diplomacy.  One source from a Group of Seven (G7)...

pexels alexander isreb 1797428

The socialist left says the evidence capitalism oppresses the poor is that free markets relocate factories to the poorest nations in order to pay the lowest wages.

While the US has its problems, future global Chinese supremacy won’t be one. Far from being in a position of overwhelming strength, China and its Communist leadership face imminent multifront domestic crises that will threaten the existence not only of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) but the existence of the Chinese state as a unified whole. Further, there are several insurmountable obstacles to it seriously disturbing core US interests or expanding its influence much beyond its own coasts before this happens. First, China’s geography is terrible if projecting power is a state aim....
