The world is changing YES
But do you want it to change at a USA Agenda
AMERICA have been looking for a way into the EAST for a long time a place to position it,s WAR machine for refueling a BLACK SEA BASE NAVAL PORT giving them control of access into the Black sea .
What these three say they want and what they actually want is two different things ,
Once you take a deal with the devil there is no way out and it will cost you dearly ,they have the UK following them like sheep everywhere.
If you do not be prepared for the COSTS and CONSEQUENCES.

I hope this visit is taken seriously, and the government it is not falling "in love" with America again. Specially Senator McCain is a trouble maker. When ever he goes, there is something cooking? He is a flip-flap politician and he is coming with a" special mission" to get something for nothing, and empty promises. He is no longer distinguish politician. In USA his reputation is none, he lost his ,and his involvement in Ukraine's crises it is nothing more then gaining financial personal interest. He is not powerful at all! Bulgarian people are smarter then that, and should be more practical, and patriotic when it comes to negotiations, and stop being bud kissers. Before communists sold the country to USSR, and now to USA. Why? They /the politicians/ don't have to "sale" themselves nor the country. Have some moral and pride. Bulgaria is a great country , and so are the people! Stop believing that, they are coming to help Bulgaria. There is no such think-everything is Money, who gets what? It is simple as that. What about people's interest, and what is the best for the country? What is so hard to understand that, when big companies are coming to Bulgaria, they are coming to gain more ,not to give! It is business, profit and not always in the best interest of the country offering. The price is very high for the country, and its people to pay!

United corporate hooligans arrive as economic hitmen to chase the "evil Russians" and impose in Bulgaria the New World Order democracy. By blackmailing weak and small countries with no efficient economy and tell them: "Listen, pals, you either do what we tell you OR Brussels will stop funding your economy." It used to be that way in the mid 90s when wrestlers called "insurance agents" were threatening people to make an insurance or something bad would happen to their business. Something like the Godfather story in America in 1930s.

These are powerful people in the US. They are coming here to make sure Bulgaria follows the NATO position and to put barriers up against trade with Russia by making sure Bulgaria stops the South stream pipeline.
