Complete BS

A breakdown of law and order bubbles just beneath the surface of American society. This ironic op-ed from the State-run China Daily asks: If rape, robbery, murder and disorder is what happens after a well-anticipated natural disaster, what is likely to occur after a major terrorist attack?
This answers itself, but BS

YAY!

America 'Kidnaps' the United Nations Summit
The Summit for the 60th Anniversary of the United Nations was ‘a grotesque farce' that failed to address almost all of the pressing issues facing humanity. What or who is the culprit of all this, you might ask? According to this article from Mexico's La Jornada, it was ‘the arrogance of the Everlasting Vacationer's government.
