    So outrageous and dangerous that Pakistan’s Imran Khan was so AGGRESSIVELY neutral!!

    Ranks up there with the outrageous and dangerous position of people who are AGGRESSIVELY circumspect or AGGRESSIVELY prudent or AGGRESSIVELY peaceloving or AGGRESSIVELY sane.

    Such a good thing for the world that the Mafia rogue State known as the USA is sensibly fanatical, sensibly imprudent, sensibly violent and sensibly INSANE.

    GO, GO, GO USA, f*ck yeah!!! Jail or kill everybody else!!!
