“The Brutality Cascade” by David Brooks (TIMES, 3/5/13)

What “common-sense caucus” does the GOP have? It is the party of pirates that serves the interests of an American plutocracy and obstructs the workings of democracy at every turn.

After a century of exploitation by a consortium of nations, the Chinese learned to hit back. No wonder the former bullies are crying foul.

Once upon a time, the Western Powers, led by Great Britain, tipped the balance of trade with China by the massive importation of opium in to the country. That ruthless strategy undermined the Chinese economy and deeply scarred its society.

Doesn’t Brooks know that story?
