Do learn your facts, before spreading misinformation.
since Reagan/Mulroney. The US president and Canadian prime minister were said to be quite fond of each other and both pushed strongly for Free trade and Globalization. They were dupes or thieving bastards, mostly the first; but unfortunately hard to rule out the second part.
"Zedkaia has issued an executive order (...) introducing a no-visa unrestricted entry programme for foreign nationals of any country".
"He declared to the press: Then the Westerners came. First it was the atomic bombs, and then now their irresponsible emissions are drowning our islands. We are tired of being raped and victimised."
I don't get it: are you tired or are you asking for more? The only way I can make sense of it is to interpret it as "tired but loving it in a masochist kinda way".
