    Whomever says its Big Government that is wastefull has clearly never worked for a Fortune 500 company.
    Big companies are just better at hiding waste.

    Any organisation over 200 people is going to be wasteful. If you want to see real waste work in construction on literally any single project of any size.

    Everyone seems hates big government unless the big government is arresting black people or splitting up migrant families.

    Congrats CIA for taking over Bolivia just as they started considering nationalising their lithium mines.

    That's very legal and cool.

    But what's wrong with just wanting to pay less taxes?

    The same lithium required for EV batteries? Their fault for putting their country in such a valuable resource...

    Also, aren't the CIA/Deep State busy trying to bring down Trump?

    The very same lithium, they were drawing up plans to deal with international markets directly as sellers instead of through western corporate entities.

    The CIA/deep state are everywhere at everytime. Lizard men don't need sleep.

    not really considering how badly Venezuela was handled.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    It is a rookie mistake if you want to avoid a military coup backed by America.

    During the Cold War the KGB suspected the CIA to be behind everything that happened that wasn't according to their plans.
    At the same time the CIA suspected the KGB to be behind everything that didn't go according to their plans.

    Yet when you look at each other's missions during that time, usually neither side was involved in the eventual outcome, if at all. At best they jumped onto things way too late.

    The actual success stories were rare for both sides.

    This became super obvious to me when I read histories of each service back to back.

    betting on the whole thing getting fumbled as badly as Venezuela was and just passing by entirely doesn't strike me as unreasonable considering the sitting administration.

    but on the other hand, never bet on hellworld, it's invariably going to make you lose.

    This has pretty much been my conclusion about most "Grand Conspiracies" just simply observing how N(N-1)/2 applies in rl.

    It's funny though how paranoid both services ended up being about each other. Literally everything was the other side, down to the weather.

    Gary Webb definitely shot himself twice in the head and Jeffery Epstein hanged himself with paper towels.

    I was somewhere around Old Man Star, on the edge of Essence, when drugs began to take hold.
