As for "new," hardly.
Looks to ME very old, ancient, primitive, archaic, barbaric, reptilian, and, of course, resuscitated imperialist, colonialist, FASCIST, i.e, "imperialism being the last (expansionist) stage of capitalism."
A terminal end game, dying breath.
Looks like they will NOT "go out with a whimper, but, A BIG BANG!!"
As for "normal," MY commentary at the end.
So, without further ado, as THEY label it:
"The/A/Our New Normal":
Exemplifying A/THE/OUR NEW/OLD GRIZZLY NORMAL ABOVE AND BELOW.
MY EMPHASIS in RED, BOLD, HIGHLIGHTED, background.
Remember IRANIAN BUTCHER, MOWAFFAK AL-RUBAIE in OCCUPIED IRAQ??
(Apparently, Al-Rubaie is NOT his REAL name which, anyway, gets translated different in English depending on source.)
Anyway, you should familiarize yourself with him and his/their tactics, since he/they very much PART AND PARCEL OF OUR/A NEW NORMAL.
I featured alias Rubaie on many EARLIER posts.
As a refresher, a link to NAZI BUTCHER- IN-CHIEF IRAN RUBAIE FEATURED at one of our proliferating, "PRESTIGIOUS," NAZI THINK TANKS--
FROM OCT 5, 2007:
In conclusion, MY LATEST response to many NORMAL misnomers, as in Mel Brooks movie, "Young Frankenstein," more proper, an "A.B. Normal" brain.
