Genocide government led by the genocide-criminal military of Myanmar recently demanded all online service providers including Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc to store information of all users in order to allow the genocide-criminal military to violate the privacy information of all people in Myanmar without warrant.

The genocide-criminal military of Myanmar is worse than Sadam Hussain from Iraq.

It took few months for US to completely dismantle the Sadam's government before and it should take only few weeks to dismantle the genocide-criminal military of Myanmar because it's very weak to the extent of losing war to the AA rebel force from the Rakhine state in Myanmar.

So the urgent mission for US now is to dismantle the genocide-criminal military of Myanmar immediately just like it did to Iraq before in order to stop
the genocide-criminal military from roaming freely to further commit inhumane crimes without rule and order as well as to liberate all people in Myanmar from becoming slaves under the genocide-criminal military of Myanmar.

UN is not functioning righteously under the bad influence of China and Russia so both should be kicked of UN immediately in order to return justice to the world community.

In remembering of the greatest thief in US history, all Americans should be allowed to spit on the grave of thief Trump forever as a way to remember that the thief Trump once stole 50% assets of all American by devaluing US dollar against Gold by 50%.
Trump must go to jail early next year for the rest of his life for the crimes of thievery and treason and once dead in jail, his grave must become a spitting pool for all Americans so that no future president may no longer dare to steal money from the government and the people as did by the most shameless thief Trump now.

The national debt of US is out of control now and standing at whopping 23 trillions now unlike never seen before in history.
So the question now is when US is going to print out more irresponsible money and then consequently collapse its whole financial system with the support of whole world or all countries which consequently reject the overprinted and unaccountable US dollar in the international transaction.

Before the coronavirus happened, Trump wasted 1 trillion for each year in average for his last 3 years so Trump already wasted 3 trillions for 3 years before the coronavirus happened.

No sitting president ever spent as much as 1 trillion per year just like this dishonest Trump.
So this should be an act of thievery by Trump.

All thievery has to be handled sooner or later but US really can't add more national debt anymore or else the whole financial system would be collapsed as all international countries are preparing to reject the unreliable US currency now without any mercy so the real thief Trump and his accomplice Jerome Powell can't be allowed to continue to steal money from the government and should be arrested for thievery and treason immediately in order to save the financial system of US from collapsing or else the complete collapse of the financial system of US is not too far from now on.

Attempting to interfere with this November election by the dumb Trump is clearly a manifestation of the nature a traitor.
So no more excuse is necessary but to arrest the traitor Trump and his whole family for this unexcusable treason or else the dumb Trump might become the next autocrat smart Xi of China.

Trump surely shall not get re-elected for presidency this year but the mass he left behind especially the devaluing of US dollar against Gold by almost 50% under his administration would never be forgiven by all Americans because this is the greatest thievery in history that is kind of stealing of all possessions of all Americans as much as 50% so far until now of all US dollar based assets and money.

Not only not forgiven but also Trump and Trump's whole family may not rest in peace forever by the power of all Americans.

So while in office now, Trump should expedite to correct his mistake by restoring the value of US dollar against Gold to the level left behind by the previous Obama administration or else his fate and family's fates might be terribly unimaginable starting on next year.

Americans are all real weaklings allowing the murderer Trump to keep on slaughtering more and more Americans for his pleasure as well as allowing the thief Trump to discreetly steal the value of US dollar which has been massively devalued comparing to Gold from over 1,100 US dollar per ounce of gold under the previous Obama administration to the current almost 2,000 US dollar per ounce of gold, almost 50% of the value of US dollar has been lost against Gold under the current greatest thief Trump administration

Sooner or later all Americans would become real beggars under the greatest thief Trump.

No terrorist is as terrible as the murderer and thief Trump to all Americans so for what all Americans are holding guns for...

Former boss Ma of Alibaba thought there was no better time to withdraw money from the stock market now so withdrew as much as 6 billions US dollar probably from the US stock market recently.

Thanks to the manipulation of the most corrupt Trump who abuses the stimulus of trillions US dollar to pop up the price of stock market unreasonably.

There is no justice under the thief Trump so the rich are richer through the stock market under the influence of the stimulus of trillions US dollar even during this difficult time which is beyond reason and logic and the future of most American has beem completely doomed already because Trump has already wasted almost all money belong to American for the future of all American in order to selfishly enrich himself and greedy people around him.

A thief in US stole over 50% of all American’s all US dollar based assets over the last 4 years.

Under the scammer Trump, US dollar has been massively deprecated against the gold by over 50% already.

Yes the thief is no other than the most dishonest Trump and all American have the responsibility to protect the value of US dollar against gold so have to arrest the thief Trump and demand to restore the value of US dollar against Gold to the day before the thief took over the office of the honest Obama.

The thief Trump must be arrested immediately for the greatest scam in history for attempting to collapse the US dollar or it may be too late.

UN seat must be returned to ROC, Taiwan which earned it due to its contribution during WW2 unlike the free loader China communist party which was even utterly useless during WW2 to defend the Japan invasion.

The immoral China communist is not worthy of the UN seat which China communist party didn't earn it but stolen from ROC and then given by the previous immoral US president unlawfully.

Consequently China communist party abused the UN seat many times before such as to deliberately protect Myanmar military and its accomplice, the current Myanmar government which clearly committed the genocide crime on Rohingya in order to protect China's interest in Myanmar, etc.

UN seat is not supposed to be abused without justice as being abused for profit by the immoral China communist repeatedly because it's viewed as a benchmark for justice from around the world especially by the western countries so UN seat should be returned to where it belonged, the rightful heir ROC, Taiwan.

SARS and coronavirus, both epidemics were coming from China. One epidemic might be an accidence but both epidemics are hard to be accepted as epidemics.
So China has responsibility to inform the whole world of its research related to viruses or else China should not blame the world from being shut down to China.

The doom of stock market is going to follow now and this time it would be much worse than where it was left before because the artificial uplifting of the stock market from US is no longer sustainable as the reality in US is getting worse where as much as 47% of US population are jobless now due to the coronavirus so the artificial uplifting of the stock market fails desperately to match the reality in US and this is also where the start of the real doom of the stock market begins so prepare to sell quickly or else prepare to lose your fortune.

All people around Trump are lackeys and they are historically most instrumental to support Trump to accomplish to collapse the United States of America.
All of them are the greatest enemies of Americans.

About 3 trillions have been wasted without abating the virus in US whereas the whole world spent about 300 billions or 10% of what US wasted and the virus is well contained accross the world now.

3 trillions wasted for nothing without being accountable by Trump is a history which might also be a sign of nearing the collapse of the United States of America.

Since Trump entering the white house, the value of US dollar has been stolen by at least 50% now comparing to the honest Obama administration.

Under Obama administration, gold price is over 1100 US dollar per ounce of Gold and now under the thief Trump administration, gold price is over 1770 US dollar per ounce of Gold.

Trump has to be immediately investigated for the crime of thievery because all Americans are suffering the value of their US dollar being stolen endlessly comparing to Gold.

Trump commits crimes of not only thievery but also massacre of over hundred of thousand of Americans by shirking the responsibility of the role of US president in the process of committing the trillions thievery crime or else the death toll of coronavirus in US should be less than China where in China, the death toll of coronavirus is less than 5,000 people until so far so Trump must spend his own money to compensate to all the families of over hundred of thousand coronavirus dead who are all the victims of the irresponsibility of Trump and then Trump has to go to jail to pay back for all his crimes for good.

Myanmar government which has been shamelessly and endlessly committing genocide and war crimes upon Rohingya, other races such as Rakhine race, etc but incredibly still being supported by the genocide support organization such as IMF which recently announced to assist 356.5 millions to the genocide Myanmar government as well as the world Bank which has been closely cooperating with the genocide government led by the real criminal Suu Kyi.

All the hundred and hundred of millions of fund coming from IMF, the world bank, etc would end up being used in Myanmar to support genocide and war crimes against Kayin race, Rohingya, etc.

So it's time to cut off all relation to the the genocide government led by the real criminal Suu Kyi.

IMF, world bank, etc are the accomplices of the genocide Myanmar government so they should be charged with appreciate genocide and war crime immediately.

Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell wasted trillions and trillions of dollar recently for mission-impossible recovery conspiracy deliberately unlike never seen before in US history and said and confirmed yesterday that (as if) he betted the wrong move as no more recovery is available for US anymore. (where most of trillions of dollar were wasted around the circle of friends and families of the most corrupt Trump such as the Tesla CEO, the accomplice of Trump, received 770 millions or 0.77 billion worth of stock-based package this year though his Tesla company made a profit of merely 16 millions for the first quarter of this year so Trump and Jerome Powell are accountable to explain how much 100 billions were injected in the rubbish Testla company through Tesla stock and then how much profit they shared among themselves together with their accomplice Tesla CEO, etc)

Jerome Powell also has been deliberately devaluing the US dollar by at least half comparing to gold where the gold was 1100 US dollar per ounce of gold under the great Obama era and now over 1730 US dollar per ounce of gold under the greatest scammer Trump who no one trusts worldwide now.

The consequences of Jerome Powell's betrayal results US dollar collapsing worldwide now as most countries are dumping overprinted and untrustworthy US dollar which was printed by trillions and trillions irresponsibily under Jerome Powell's mismanagement.

Worldwide influence of US dollar is pretty much done hopelessly now but Jerome Powell is still shamelessly alive so should be punished to what is due for his betrayal by planting his head in toilet bowl to fit his appropriate worthiness.

The greatest contribution from Trump is sacrificing almost 30% of worldwide coronavirus death with American blood, over 90,000 American death out of over 300,000 death worldwide.

Trump even beats the record of the Spanish flu epidemic where only 10% death was coming from US until 1920.

Until now Trump is shameless unlike human being to the extent of not willing to take a responsibility for his greatest failure in US history by resigning proactively or is Trump still waiting all United American to expel him like a Rubbish Dog to a prison?

American are well treated in the old justice system of US Constitution until the Rubbish Trump has been controlling and destroying the old justice system 4 years ago where the system blood known as dollar has been shattered much more than half of its value comparing to gold price from 1100 dollar per ounce of gold under the Great Obama era to the current 1760 dollar per ounce of gold under the shameless manipulation of the Rubbish Trump and even worse the old justice system is leading for a collapse now as the Rubbish Trump is printing the system blood in trillions and trillions irresponsibily out of nothing on top of over 16 trillions debt still owed by US to international credit owners.

American are under the master class before Rubbish Trump popping up and now the Rubbish Trump is creating slaves out of all Americans now by destroying the old justice system.

Are you happy in your silence until the old justice system is gone ?

US is going to bankrupt soon, thanks to the achievement of the bankruptcy king Trump being able to persuade to the moron Powell of the FED to print and sell the dollar in trillions recently resulting the US dollar losing the trust of worldwide immediately now where actually US is not qualified to print dollar anymore until its debt of 23 trillions are fully repaid.

Consequently, all countries are going to dump the US dollar very soon and US dollar would not be accepted in international trading gradually.

Thanks to the traitors Trump and Powell, US has no more next generation but just waiting to pay debt to the dollar return from worldwide until the whole nation of US is collapsed consequently.

Gold price has been already massively skyrocketed now as much as 50% against US dollar comparing to the era of great Obama.

So all Americans are openly scammed by the very shameless scammer who Americans elected to be the current president of the United States who shamelessly scammed Banks through bankruptcies for whopping 6 times shamelessly between 1991 and 2009.

It was a choice of Americans then, but now all of the countries all over the world are suffering the consequences of the mistaking choice of Americans electing an untrustworthy scammer whose untrustworthy actions foretell the collapse of the trust of the financial system of the United States with his usual predictable scamming methods practised earlier on the aforementioned of his whopping 6 bankruptcies.

Before it's too late, it's the responsibility of all Americans to stop the scammer from destroying the trust of the whole world upon the financial system of the United States or else afraid no one may not trust to hold US dollar anymore in trading at foreign countries and consequently US dollar being the world currency might become a history of the past under Trump.
Gold price must be restored to a healthy level where an ounce of gold should be less than 600 US dollar which I believe, would have been already achieved now if great Obama were in the office now instead of the extreme wasteful Trump.

Culprit Trump is adding almost a whopping 1 trillion budget deficit to all American annually since 2017 so the culprit Trump has already added over 3 trillions to the national debt for all American in just 3 years unlike never seen before in US history.
If the culprit Trump were allowed to create debt for American for another 5 years, US might be collapsed on its own due to massive unsustainable debt weight, thanks to the corrupt American politicians helping and protecting the wrong culprit Trump.

US debt to China is just 1.07 trillion, merely a third of debt created by the culprit Trump during his 3 years extravagent stay in the office.

The worst terrorist action under Trump is seemingly to destroy the world currency status of US dollar by depreciating the US dollar against gold unreasonably and unacceptably.

Great Obama worked so hard during his 8 years in the president office to restore the value of US dollar against gold and the day, Dec 20th 2017 when Trump took over the president office, the price of gold was just 1138 US dollar per ounce of gold and now it's a whopping 1663 US dollar per ounce of gold.

So the price of gold has been skyrocketed over 46% against the never-ending depreciating US dollar since the unworthy Trump took over the office so US dollar is heading for a collapse seemingly now, just waiting for other countries to dump US dollar, thanks to the foolishness of the culprit trump or probably Trump executing the instructions of Russia in secret to collapse US dollar.

With the collapse of US dollar, US shall absolutely suffer no less than the crisis of Vaneuela where happening inhumane skyrocketing hyperinflation, shortages of food and medicine which seemingly what Trump has been leading all American to for the ugly final solution as jews were led by Hitler during WW2

So all American must immediately have the culprit Trump restored the value of US dollar against gold to the day on Dec 19th 2017 prior to his first day in the president office and to stop adding the national debt altogether.

If not submitted obediently by the culprit trump, American must pursue justice against Trump for life for the sake of the right of all American not to be further abused in the future.

Trump is the only thief among all the US presidents ever elected.

Trump not only broke the trust of all American but attempting to destroy the value of American completely by making the US dollar more and more worthless comparing to gold.

Every single American has a right to request the thief Trump to compensate all the value of US dollar that has lost so far during the last 1 month and also has the right to seek a lawsuit against the thief Trump for the treason upon the way of American.

All saving of Trump should be investigated as some of them might be now turned into gold, if so, this is also a treason as Trump abuses his position to bet gold on the expense of the lifeline of US dollar which is the blood of US existence.

Anyway, Trump must go to jail for the sake of justice for all American and all his possessions including all the businesses among his family must be confiscated for the treason.

It is the greatest treason for allowing Trump to be the president of the United States with the assistance of enemy Russia.

Right now, it seems Trump no longer works for the interest of the United States anymore but seemingly for the interest of enemy Russia which motive is to collapse the United States and this can be easily achieved by destroying the trust of the US dollar worldwide which Trump has been executing hurriedly now.

Trump's stupid excuse of China the reason that US should follow suit is illogical because China appreciate its currency as much as 13.5% from 8 Yuan per US dollar to the current 6.92 Yuan per US dollar. Instead of US following suit to China, US depreciate its US dollar instead as much as 5.5% against the gold within the last 2 weeks. Trump is clearly the currency manipulator and the poor liar of illogical reasoning.
Anyway, US dollar is clearly the world currency now unlike the China currency which holds nothing more than the regional status. is Trump also planning to help China claim the status of world currency.

Unless no one stops Trump from following instructions from Russia, the day of the United States can be numbered.

The current administration of IMPRUDENT Trump bets foolishly on the 8965 tons of gold reserve at the expense of destroying of the TRUST of US dollar all over the world.

The market value of the 8965 tons of gold is probably just 311 billions comparing to the 80 trillions US dollar asset, the total amount of US dollar circulating all over the world.

People in all walk of life all over the world start feeling the danger and insecurity of holding US dollar so it is just the beginning of massive dumping of US dollar in order to switch for gold for the sake of security, we're talking the amount of the whooping 80 trillions US dollar.
At later stage, no one shall not be able to save US dollar anymore at any cost because TRUST has been destroyed completely, even sacrificing the flesh and blood of Trump as well as selling the whole US nation wouldn't be able to redeem and restore the damage done to the US dollar, people from all nations dumping as much as 80 trillions US dollar must be equivalent to no less than destroying the whole US nation completely.

With the US nation gone due to the foolish consequence of IMPRUDENT Trump devaluating US dollar against gold IMPRUDENTLY, all American would have no more future in broken country created by foolish Trump but only China would appreciate the fake-respectable Trump's support raising the price of gold which benefits China the most at the top of the world as the invincible top producer of gold because the foolish would contribute to what China urgently need now through gold fund to end and terminate the dominion of US worldwide forever. Yes, Trump does contribute towards the interest of China according to his current stupid, imprudent action today and Trump is worthy of a medal or two of contribution from communist China on the last day of US existence.

China is the top producer of gold worldwide. Though the information of year 2018 production for China is not available, it's estimated to be more than 600 tons and the total gold reserve of US can be easily produced in China in less than 15 years or maybe much more faster.

It is still not too late to save the US dollar from the whole world dumping and Trump should not be still acting foolish and instead restore the TRUST of US dollar immediately by pressing down the gold price until China vomit, unless 80 trillions US dollars were available to stand against the world wide dumping of US dollar or else US nation would be gone as well because US nation and US dollar share the same fate.

China currency is actually overvalued currently though US repeatedly accuses China of its currency as undervalued untruly.

Few years ago, 1 US dollar was equivalent to 8 Chinese Yuan, and now Chinese Yuan is overvalued as much as 6.68 Yuan per US dollar.

So many US politicians accusing China of undervalued Yuan are dishonest and morally unacceptable because they bark repeatedly that white is black untruly. If they accused China of overvalued Yuan, then they speak the truth and would earn due respect internationally.

More and more people all over the world don't like dirty US politicians so there were few terrorist attacks to US. US shouldn't blame everything to terrorists but instead should examine its dirty and corrupt politicians to correct its mistakes and there would be peace.

US may force China to further undervalue Yuan unfairly now but US should not forget to reap what it sows now in the trade deal now in the future. There is always a consequence of retribution for the unfair treatment.

Instead US should consider to do the right thing by forcing China of its Yuan to play according to the world currency market and not to be micromanaged by the China central bank. And by doing the right course of action in the trade deal by US now, US should not only earn the respect of China in the future but also benefit the fair trading of both nations in the future

The world urgently needs world peace, harmony and oil price control to return peace of mind, stable life and inflation free society.

Though China claims no internal interference in other countries' affairs.

However, China's public support of the Myanmar's annihilation of the Rohingya is clearly the crime of the internal interference of the Myanmar's affair.

No one will believe this support of Rohingya annihilation coming from one of the five leaders of United Nation, China. This ununfortunate fate may turn to you too if your fortune turned upside down and powerless in the future, and then China is never trustworthy as Rohingya are being double stabed by Myanmar along with the Myanmar reliable partner, China communist.

People in Myanmar suffer in all area wherever China has interest in such as cattle and so on.
China is like the heartless Satan and never consider the consequences of their action affecting to the livelihood of Myanmar people such as massive importation of cattle from Myanmar, resulting the hyperinflation of beef price in Yangon, Myanmar as much as 50% within 1 year. However, China hasn't claimed its responsibility of the hyperinflation of the beef price in Myanmar until so far.

India is much more considerate to people in Myanmar. For example, probably 2 years ago India announced to import bean or pea massively from Myanmar and overnight the price of bean or pea was inflated by the greedy Myanmar trader culprit as usual. People in Myanmar did suffer the consequences of the higher price of bean or pea too. In order to alleviate the suffering of the Myanmar people, India government cancelled the plan of pea or bean importation altogether from Myanmar and consequently the price of pea or bean was dropped lower than before the previous importation announcement of the India government.

Considering the action of China internationally, China is kind of terrorist to people without power such as powerless Rohingya suffering to the extent being uprooted in Myanmar now.
However, as usual China is the best friend to whoever in power such as the lunatic leader of North Korea.
How will people trust a permanent member of UN like China who is always siding with power against the people's will?

So China is too practical and don't have a bit of the quality of human being to be qualified to be a permanent member of UN.
How can the world trust the leadership of China in UN?

First of all, irresponsible action of China in Myanmar is not acceptable as a member of UN so China must withdraw whatever its involvement from Myanmar such as economic including all China investment altogether, politic in order to prove that it's still worthy to the current membership of UN.
Or else with the crime China commits so far by supporting Rohingya annihilation in Myanmar , China should have been already kicked out of UN if there were a strong leadership in US for UN. Unfortunately US doesn't seem to have a strong leadership now in UN. US should at least stop China from all involvement altogether in Myanmar.

While US is pressing China to play by the rule, Taiwan meanwhile shamelessly takes advantage of the US-China trade war and manipulate the value of its currency lower and lower against US dollar to take advantage of its export against the US market unfairly.

Taiwan central bank is a real bad culprit like a rotted egg insulting the goodwill of US repeatedly shamelessly by not allowing its currency to play by the world currency market rule.
So US must really punish the Taiwan central bank this time to a point that the Taiwan central bank may not dare to manipulate its currency again in the future.

Taiwan must be included in the US currency monitoring list again immediately to ensure Taiwan currency play by the world currency market rule from now on.

Higher tariff to punish other countries is never a solution but a real problem and ripoff to the American consumer.
The only solution is to accept an "equal tariff for tariff" deal for the sake of fairness. So if the tariff for the import of bicycle to the US is 2.5%, the exporting country like India must also align to the rate of US tariff for the same item which is 2.5%, not the current 50% in India or else the easier solution for US is to ban the importation of the aforementioned item altogether from India until India adjusts the rate of tariff of the aforementioned item to the same rate in US which is 2.5%.

Applying this "equal tariff for tariff" deal to China and then sooner or later China would be turned into the backyard market of US and US businesses should prosper unlike never seen before even just staying in US but controlling businesses in its backyard China market.
Indeed, US need more than the "equal tariff for tariff" deal to have the American business empires sprouted in China and that is exactly what Trump needs to figure out and achieve in his final deal with China.
However, as a mild reminder, only the practical and possible demands should be raised, and also striking a deal the soonest possible is required for peace or else the outcome of impossible mean "war" which US might not be a winner as history revealed US lost the then poorly equipped, no air supported Chinese in Korean war and now the situation of China is unbelievably much better than during the Korean war.
Peace is worth fighting for but war is not.

The good-for-nothing India starts threatening the helpless and poor Rohingya refugees in India to the extent of to be slaughtered unless leaving India soon.
International communities have been treating India with due respect not because India is worthy but because of being human being.
Since the scumbag India is treating Rohingya refugees unlike human being, international communities should also treat India according to its worthiness which is less than human being and also weak women are bullied and raped daily in New Delhi city, India, unlike any other cities all over the world.
US and Europe should consider the mistakes that they have done with inhumane India, especially in the matter of recent military equipment sale because sooner or later those weapons would be used to target back to human being which is not what the human societies would like to see.

I find that there is a glaring lack of information here regarding costs for a person who drives for their commute versus has no car and takes public transportation. Yes, you can look at gas prices and transit pass costs but ultimately that doesn't show the whole picture. Cost to have a car are beyond just gas and in many other places (Cleveland, for example - I used to live there) you almost have to have a car and deal with insurance costs, payments, upkeep, etc. In DC, you can do without which will still cost a bit in transit passes but will save you SIGNIFICANTLY month after month. In Cleveland, I would pay a few hundred for a car payment, plus a hundred in insurance, plus parking (downtown this was around $100), plus about a hundred for gas - that's $500 a month before anything goes wrong with the car! Then you're looking at another several hundred dollars. Over the course of a year, I'd pay $6500 easy with at list one repair lumped in there. Here I pay $80 a month for my Metro pass and that's it! That's less that $1000 a year. Moving from Cleveland to DC has actually SAVED me money - who would've thought?? Transit costs are REAL, people.

Myanmar is tremendously daring and shameless to the extent of fabricating the following made-up news which is clearly against the weakest and helpless Rohingya currently being genocided by culprit Myanmar.

Myanmar Rohingya militants massacred Hindus, says Amnesty

It is absolutely unlogical even just to think the most helpless, almost annihilated Rohingya carrying out a massacre upon Hindu on top of themself almost being wiped out by Myanmar.

Myanmar should not be fooling around with other nation spreading fake and made-up news because other nations are not foolish neither to be easily cheated by the made-up news of culprit Myanmar.

Everyone should take a moment to feel in the shoe of Rohingya currently suffering helplessly who have clearly no future, thanks to the inhumane atrocities carried out by culprit Myanmar.

Time to unleash immediate punishment actions upon the greatest Evildoer Myanmar by showering it with the first punishment step of comprehensive sanctions on Myanmar.

Suu Kyi is the greatest humanity criminal responsible for the inhumane atrocities currently happening in Myanmar.
The atrocities happens only under the Suu Kyi government, not under the previous government so Suu Kyi should be prosecuted under the international criminal court for crimes against humanity.

While Rohingya are suffering inhumanely, shameless Suu Kyi's ministers are busy attempting to expand citis across the country including Yangon as well as places where Rohingya's land and houses were confiscated illegally to accommodate to more probably but not certain foreign investments, mostly coming from like-minded Communist China.

It is time to undo Obama's greatest history mistake and impose comprehensive sanctions on Myanmar immediately again.
And this time China must be punished to the extent of being imposed comprehensive sanctions if China violated US's sanctions on Myanmar.

The greatest virtue is to save a human race such as Rohingya from almost being wiped out.
This is exactly where the leadership role of US must be amplified that fairness and justice prevail internationally under US.
whereas China questionable, unworthy role of the permanent membership of UN, especially standing behind inhumane Myanmar upon Rohingya genocide is hopeless for the international communities so the permanent membership of China must be reconsidered whether or not sick China is worthy or fitting of the role.

Not only Rohingya genocide but also massive slaughter of ethnic races in Myanmar is so severe.
Obama made a great mistake removing a necessary sanction on Myanmar which makes the ruling military tyrant extremely wealthy by raising the property price as much as New York so with the wealth, the tyrant can afford mass-murdering military hardwares from around the world which are in turn used against its civilian such as Rohingya, many ethnic races unlike never seen before until before US removing sanction on Myanmar.
So US is responsible for all the suffering of Rohingya and ethnic races and has the responsibility to not only rectify its mistake of removing the necessary sanction but also to compensate the suffering by installing a genuine democracy government not kind of current fake democracy government led by hypocrisy Suu Kyi and then genuine democracy shall rectify not only the aforementioned suffering but also resolve the hyperinflation of property currently priced as much as the price of New York which is not affordable to most local and rent is not affordable as well so most working local sleeping like corpses lying next to each other closely without partition between them in the hall of tiny flat in the city centre.

Leed United owner seems an Indian origin and don't share the value of US in area of human right.
Disregarding the suffering of Rohingya in Myanmar, Leed United even plans to tour Myanmar.
Sharing different value to to UK resident, hope Leed United owner heads to a place instead where there is no human right

US has many bad examples but are being unfortunately copied most of its inhumane policies by many countries.
Sooner or later people affected from around the world by stupid policies of US will have bad impression on US and consequently will have bad attitude to US so US should show impression of serving people as examples to show to other countries instead.
Following are bad apples from US
1. TSA approved lock which key can be purchased online so no security at all so this should be removed and instead confirm security through x-ray within 2 minutes after checking in luggage.
2. Weight allowance of hand carry luggage which seems to have no restriction until US interfered before and now China copied and go even further just allowing 5kg allowance which is merely the weight of hand carry luggage. US must rectify this and allowing no restriction with the weight allowance but only the size.
3. Visa fee which should be free as soon as being granted of the visa. Big nation doesn't lack fund to process visa but just need a security clearance. US also should remind other countries to follow the same especially Asian nations.
4. Obama's policies regarding Myanmar should be reverted considering the mere existence of pupet government, no full-fledged democracy in Myanmar. According to news regarding the Rohingya, imagine Trump being a member of Rohingya community where his daughter being raped and killed by a gang of soldiers in his hometown in Rakhine, Myanmar and his son in law got killed in an explosive mines trapped by Myanmar soldiers on his way from the border camp to his hometown to retrieve the dead body of his wife. How that Rohingya Trump in imagination would grieve for his loss..
5. Syria from which US must stay away or else supporting terrorist for government seat in Syria is kind of another welcome of September 11 event in US.
6. South China Sea which US must balance reasonably regarding the territories claimed by China historically in SCS should be China's but the water outside the territories isn't China's. That is the best deal that I think US can strike a deal with China.
7. World safety rule which US must abide by not giving in unreasonable demands such as NSG which India attempting to be a member but without willing to participate the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty for unknown reason. Obama is the worst president ever elected who broke laws.
8. Gun allowance which is for personal protection during unrest so it is time cancel allowance for big city where more harms have been reported endlessly than protection. Gun allowance still should be provided for remote place.
9. Trade war which doesn't matter to the millionaire Trump and his family but how about the 80% populace who still need affordable products from other countries like China, Taiwan. Cheap products which is not feasible to produce in US is much more beneficial to import than producing locally at a loss.
10. Grudge which country may have the most upon US..Guess Vietnam, Cambodia, Germany, Iraq, Palestine, Philippines.. Japan seems never come out of US head but this was the very nation unpredictability attacked pearl habor and even planned a failed biochemical attack to US. The first 2 nuclear bombs were landed on Japan to strike terror in Japan heart which helped ended its atrocities across Asia but never its grudge. So as to prevent another unpredictable attack from Japan to US is to control Japan not allowing it to manipulate the article 9 of Japanese constitution or else US may enjoy today and dream tomorrow without being aware of no more tomorrow miraculously because everyone in US might be dead before the next day by allowing an unpredictable force to exist.
11. Gas/oil price should be below US$20 a barrel as they were before Iraq war or are we ATM machine to oil producer? Very unfair which were all started by ignorant stupid Bush. The fair price must be restored for justice or else what the government is for...
12. Inflation which is not important to US at all as long as US can keep US dollar as the precious world currency. Trump; you can't have the cake and eat the cake too. Killing the inflation is a much better choice for US.
13. Security check at the airport must be reduced to return comfort to the traveller. Everyone at the airport pays tax so should be treated like VIP, not like criminals under the current situation. The tax which goes into the pocket as well as mouth of Trump as well as the rest of his teams so VIP treatment should be given to all the tax payers, wither small or big.
14. Beef where the government should stand with the American people not with the few business owners to rip off the people with the expensive beef. Supply is more than the demand so the price must be reflected properly to benefit American people. Ripoff done under Bush era must be rectified and justice must be returned to the people immediately

US dollar has been a precious asset kept by much people all over the world for safekeeping because the value of US dollar is pretty stable without loss unlike other unstable currency. That is the also the very reason that makes US very powerful and rich.
It is unimaginable to the day when all people all over the world no longer want to hold US dollar anymore because of a harmful policy to US dollar introduced first time ever by the current US president Trump. More and more people are dumping US dollar because the value of US dollar is falling clearly against all currencies of all other countries.
More inflation is a simple intention game of Trump but Trump is clearly heading to collapse the monopoly of US dollar game. With the collapse of US dollar by printing US dollar, US shall no longer be where it is today anymore so sacrificing inflation is clearly a much better deal for US and is also a powerful weapon to lecture other countries to treat her people fairly by removing inflation.
