  1.

    But your failing to identify what the squad defined..was white supremacist anglo American and British societies who have practiced Zenophobia in America for centuries, but whose Racist culture has killed 22 million foreign ethnic citizens of the world since world war 2, including North Korean, Vietnamese, Panamanians, Grenada, Cuban, Yugoslavians, libyan, Syrian , Lebanese , Iraqi, Yemenese..Afghanistan Somalian, Sudanese, and waging economic genocide against Iran, North Korea, Venezuela…all funded by the ethnic immigrants of America who are free to create as much money as fund a White supremacist government of wealthy Aristocrates of Bankers, Corporate Oligarks, and Religious Special interest groups to monopolize all the world ethnic populations!

    You are a hypocrite in promoting regime change perpetual wars as humanitarian efforts of an entire government,when they are simply wars of conquest and ethnic genocide against Non Anglo citizens of the world!

    Xenophobia of the world !
