It's Rumble Tim e
America Has Waylaid Humanity's Products and Livelihoods
Want some of this? Let's Rumble.
Trump's greater America has been hijacked. It is never to be great again following the Trumpian-Clintonian piracy on the world, its innovations, inventions, and resources.
No one likes being held up and robbed, but when Trump and America do it to nations, a rumble is inevitable.
Syrian government condemns oil deal between Kurds and US firm as 'theft'
The deal comes months after president Trump expressed interest in the country's lucrative oil fields
(www.middleeasteye.net) "The Syrian government on Sunday condemned an agreement between Kurdish-led forces in the country's northeast and a US oil company, describing it as "theft" and an "affront to national sovereignty".
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Thursday what he described as a "very powerful" deal penned between a US firm and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which was backed by the US in the war to oust the Islamic State group (IS) from the region.
The SDF, a Kurdish-led paramilitary alliance, backs a semi-autonomous administration in northeastern Syria and controls the country's biggest oilfields, still claimed by Damascus.
The Syrian foreign ministry statement, published on state media, said the agreement was set “to steal Syrian oil... supported by the US administration."
The statement decried "an agreement between... thieves who steal and thieves who buy".
It also condemned "the hostile US position towards Syria, the theft of the Syrian people's riches and its hindrance of the state's reconstruction efforts".
In the meantime Turkey is saying to Russia to sit on it as the Turkish military invades Syria and grabs Syrian land.
Turkey has "announced" it will "rebuild Syria" with the money obtained from Syria's oil fields.
How benevolent of Turkey!
With Turkey's "safe zone" and Syrian oil sharing with the U.S. and israel, the Ottoman tyranny can go into full swing.
Maybe Turkey can buy more weapons from Russia to use against Russian troops in Libya?
Kurdish forces can buy more US weapons and everyone will be happy if not dead.

(CNN) America's top tech CEOs can't agree on whether China steals from them
"It's a question that gets to the heart of escalating tensions between the United States and China: "Do you believe that the Chinese government steals technology from US companies?"
And it was put to the CEOs of Amazon (AMZN
), Apple (AAPL
), Facebook (FB
) and Google(GOOGL
) by Rep. Greg Steube, more than four hours into Wednesday's five-and-a-half hour Congressional antitrust hearing.
The answers were somewhat varied.
"I don't know of specific cases where we have been stolen from by the government," Apple CEO Tim Cook said. "I know of no case [of] ours where it occurred ... I can only speak to firsthand knowledge," he added.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai initially followed his lead."
Gee, no one knows anything.
That means everyone is stealing from everyone
Thievery at its finest!
So, rumble on!
