The attack promoted by the Donald Trump government cost more than 100 million dollars to destroy two targets in Homs and one in Damascus.

US President Donald Trump attacked Syria last Friday, jointly with the governments of France and the United Kingdom, with the launch of at least 105 missiles against the Asian nation.

This new aggression of the North American country, which was made in response to an alleged chemical attack in Damascus that was not proven, brought consequences of all kinds, especially the rejection of the international community in the face of violent action.

Even in the economic sphere, the United States (USA) was affected, despite not knowing the total costs of the operation.

The US force fired about 66 Tomahawk cruise missiles against three Syrian targets, costing 92.4 million dollars.

Oligarchy v.s Democracy


“When a majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites or with organized interests, they generally lose. Moreover, because of the strong status quo bias built into the U.S. political system, even when fairly large majorities of Americans favor policy change, they generally do not get it.”

Like Everything Else, Trump Wrecks Travel to Cuba, Too – Via The Root


By Angela Helm

If you’re like me, practically all of your friends, associates and even one rogue co-worker took a trip to Cuba in the last year (only one, however, bought this writer back a cigar, ahem). Without exception, all loved the island-nation filled with black people, salsa, and respite from life in the United States, rolled into a financially reasonable travel destination.

But those travel tales are starting to come fewer and farther between.

Naturally, the man with the big ass in the White House is to blame.

Things are moving towards the next Summit of the Americas, to be held from April 13 to 15 in Peru. It will be Donald Trump’s first major attempt to separate the “good guys” from the “bad guys” on the continent; where the “good” are those countries that serve the mandates of the White House and the “bad”, namely, the non-aligned.

The tactics used by Trump are specific. Some very basic, such as not inviting Venezuela to the Summit. Others, more elaborate, like the one Washington dedicates to Cuba, another of the “bad guys” of America, according to the US government.

Travel Destinations: Holguin

Via Cuba Travel Site 

Holguin as a tourist destination, in Cuba, is distinguished by its authenticity, diversity and high level of sustainability. It also stands out for its picturesque relieves of great scenic value. It shows a set of tangible elements, loaded with cultural symbols and resulting in a platform for dialogue not only between cultures but also between man and nature.

The extraordinarily crystalline waters and white sand of the north coast demonstrate the excellence of its beaches. We have the hop-on hop-off bus transfer to the beaches and surrounding places. For lovers of nature, the sunset on these beaches is a unique formulation that contrasts with the progressive predominance of green vegetation over the blue of the sea
