You losers need to stop invoking Brexit as some sort of benchmark for your shambolic decision to elect Trump.
Brexit had nothing to do with Left & Right and everything to do with Sovereignty.
Stop listening to Nigel Farage.
More to the point, stop fearmongering with this civil war crap.
It's all you bang on about nowadays.

Yes, and Trump is as honest as Old Abe Lincoln.
Confession of a CIA Agent: They gave us millions to dismember Yugoslavia
Who were the terrorists in question and why were they supposed to carry out these attacks?
They gave us files about a group called “Supreme Serbia” detailing plans to conduct a series of bomb attacks on key buildings in Sarajevo in opposition to Bosnia’s ambition to leave former Yugoslavia.
Did that group ever exist and what exactly you were doing in Sarajevo under CIA command?
No such group ever existed! Our headquarters lied to us. Our mission was to alarm and spread panic among politicians in Bosnia, simply to fill their heads with the idea that Serbs would attack. To begin with, we accepted the story, but after a while we started to wonder. Why were we raising such hysteria when the group clearly did not exist?
So there was only propaganda against the Serbs?
Yes and no. The aim of the propaganda was to divide the republics so they would break away from the motherland Yugoslavia. We had to choose a scapegoat who would be blamed for everything. Someone who would be responsible for the war and violence. Serbia was chosen because in some ways it is a successor to Yugoslavia.
You mentioned that the media was controlled and funded, how exactly did that happen?
This is already known, some CIA agents were responsible for writing the official statement that the announcers read on the news. Of course the news presenters were oblivious to it, they got the news from their boss and he got it from our man. Everyone had the same mission: to spread hatred, nationalism and the differences between people through television.
The real claims of the CIA assessment are not known. Neither is any evidence known on which an assessment is based on. All claims about the alleged CIA report WaPo and NYT report on are hearsay - unverified whisper by anonymous people. Some within the CIA seem to disagree with at least parts of the assessment. WaPo writes: A senior U.S. official said there were minor disagreements among intelligence officials about the agency’s assessment, in part because some questions remain unanswered. According to someone talking to the NYT the FBI also disagrees with at least parts of the alleged CIA conclusion: One senior government official, who had been briefed on an F.B.I. investigation into the matter, said that while there were attempts to penetrate the Republican committee’s systems, they were not successful. That is important because the FBI, not the CIA, is responsible to investigate cyber related crimes within the U.S. .
Actually it is a needed investigation and assessment as to whether another country has tried to influence our election. If they have, Trump will remain President, but this point must be ascertained and dealt with. I hope you know we cannot and will not permit this. Or at least we shouldn't. We won't have a President now who supports an investigation, but hopefully some of the agencies will continue to pursue it. It has to be done.

Why is anyone getting their panties in a knot over the "call" for anything from an ex-CIA operative? Seriously??
