    But not for the first time, I was struck with the sense of how similar to us they sounded -- just with the names changed.
    Thanks from Madeline

    P.s. ... the relatively polite segment of "us".

    Whut dafuq?

    Do you own a map, dear? What about most of the Caribbean nations, and most of Central and South America?

    And it is sloppy thinking, calling the US or Israel a "semi-fascist" government, IMO.

    I rather left off posting there, for fear of annoying them. But perhaps this morning, it would be okay?

    Do you own a dictionary? Central, South America and the Carribeans are not part of the West.

    Netanyahu and Trump are semi-fascists, so there is that.

    There are only two halves to the planet.....east and west.



    Everything to the left of the Prime Meridian is "West".

    What else do you use that word to mean, as to geography?

    I disagree that either Trump or Netanyahu are fascists. These men are certainly flawed (especially Trump) but they are not in the same class as Mussolini, Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Papa Doc, Gaddafi, Saddam Hussein, Kim Jon III, or Franco.

    I wish everyone would dial down the hyperbole, and glance across the 20th century's history a bit.

    LOL.

    There are many, many halves of the planet since it's round, depending on where you want to half it. You're not one of those 21st century flat earthers, are you?

    But I'm using the term Western as it is commonly accepted in politics. See for yourself.

    And the fact that Hitler and co were real fascists doesn't mean that Trump and co can't be semi-fascists.
