The threat came amid reports that Navalny, who is in his third week of a hunger strike, had been moved to a prison hospital because of rapidly declining health and a statement from his doctor that the government opposition leader could be near death.

  1. Nalavny survived “a nerve agent attack” with no damage but now is going to starve himself to death in jail?

  2. If you compete fairly as other countries do, I can confidently say the world wouldn’t mind you dominating the world. Even if China overtakes u , their soft power will not win the hearts and minds of the ppl than the Americans do. America ,though has a short history, has strong soft power and attractiveness. And why is US afraid of competition? Don’t u guys have the nature of cowboy duels in the past when both parties fight but on fair terms? I guess US generation has lost this chivalry long time ago.
