    What makes you think it has anything to do with Trump? He's got absolutely no political power as present.

    do apologise I just thought that this topic was discussing the state of health of world and so much problems going on in the world

    So hence why I used the Bible quote, because if you read the Bible Judgement Day, you'll find pretty much what's happening in the world right now is happening is written in the Bible sorry again if I put wrong subject matter

    Sorry

    i think the west have caused the most trouble throughout history and continue to do so , but no need to turn a blind eye to what other nations or regions are doing.

    Look at any war over the last 100 years , if there is anything profitable to be made out of the wars watch us and uk stroll right in like they own the place.

    The west have also contributed a lot, alleviated suffering and prevented 'trouble'. Not pure by any means but a lot of the trouble has been good intentions gone bad. Or defence. They might be arrogant about their intentions, strolling in, but that is beside the point.

    As for 'in history' you might be right but it does depend on your definitions of 'trouble' - is war the yardstick? or what about suffering on a daily basis though society, culture etc? Should it be per capita or are all countries the measure regardless of size? There are quite a few contenders.

    Also who is now the west - it used to be western world but seems to be morphing into english speaking western world.

    should also note why societies and communities were created. world peace was not the motivation but the betterment of themselves (or those with power and influence). we have a lot of development to do as a race

    when i say the west i think of us,uk,france and maybe germany.

    war and suffering are what i would class as trouble, failure to recognise that other cultures and countries are far too complex to be going there and deploying troops etc for whatever reason they see fit. i think now more than ever its driven more by greed and craving of power

    No one invaded us and tried to push down the values we have today down our throat.
    It took our ancestors centuries to create them by them self

    Shouldnt the west be better then those you mentioned? Or are we no better then the great Khan.
    And even the Ottoman empire got more or less halted and in the end stopped by stuborn people ln the balkans who didnt accept their idea of values.

    In modern times yes but when you use the word 'always' you're very far off the mark there. I would've thought Latin, Arabic, French, Greek would've been 'templates' long before English

    Anyone following the wikileaks email dump on Hillary Clinton?

    Getting a confirmation that the Rothschild family is by far the most influential .... their humungous wealth surpasses Gates, Saudi Royal Family, Soros, Warren Buffet, .... the lot of them together ... by miles and miles.

    A demi-god family. Rulers of the World.

    I've been following the constant deflection of anything that happens to Clinton being blamed on Russia. I had to check it wasn't 1965.

    Attack the source, ignore the content; basic deflection gobbled up by the masses. The flow of attacks regarding almost anything towards Russia is really concerning, and Clinton is still maintaining she wants to implement a no-fly zone if she gets in power which is basically a declaration of war.

    Yep. Wars deplete the population of the world which is in danger of being over-populated. It seems to be the thing they want.

    The full extent ... no. Fabulously rich, yes. But not that our politicians like Blair and Clinton report to them.

    Can you give me the highlights, both about what the e-mails reveal about the family other than their wealth, and what Clinton's dealings with them are?
