Make it another 10, please.
I get why you'd express that sentiment. It's certainly plausible that this information isn't fully accurate.
The difference between a conspiracy that exists, and the conspiracy that actually happens can be tested simply:
Would an uninformed idiot think it's actually a good idea to do?
If yes? It's probably happening.
If no? Find a new theory.
It's not that idiots run everything. But idiots get involved in every piece of decision making, somehow.

You're doing god's work.
Now, while happiness does help us catch lies in advertising, we're also more likely to react positively to advertising in general when we're happy. Thus google's mission should be to make people happy at the expense of news quality, since they're in the advertising business.
Friend google has prescribed me 3 doses of happy happy to be taken at the nearest confession booth.
Strictly speaking, the assertion mwvdlee makes is logical. You can't affirm the consequent like that. But it's completely unreasonable in that it freely disregards other available(and in fact trivially commonplace) information about how diseases, and HIV in particular, work.
Oh, no, that's absolutely an attempt at large-scale mental manipulation as well.
Because HIV has numerous properties that allow it to remain dormant in a host for a long time.
Oh this is the most intellectually lazy of bullshit.
Saying "Why would stopping treatment lead to a relapse?" as if there was no trivially understood relationship there. It's just... silly. I mean, come on bro, no one wants to jump to conclusions, but this is like saying "I stopped watering my houseplant, and at some point, it died. We don't know there's any relationship there."
If they count as a foreign nation. Since "no one country" owns space according so some treaty or another(okay, I admit, my memory is fuzzy on this), they might not.
But they will pay taxes on the income/profits. And there's no economic system that doesn't value the availability of new raw materials as a primary interest.
Worse than that. It's like Brave New World news. The only things fit to publish are the things that keep us happy(and thus amendable to advertisements in this case). It's not trying to make on specific entity look good, it's trying to engage in actual mind control via selection bias.
Yeah, but see, you can have your cake and eat it too. Eject someone if you don't get what you want, once you have the pretense to defy the US.
It's never about the moral high-ground. It's always about diplomatic leverage.
This excludes actions by populist elected bodies or particularly fickle monarchs. But in general if one nation is doing something to another nation, it's maneuvering by state and intelligence departments.
No, a surprise would be throwing US agents in jail. This is definitely regular international diplomacy stuff.
The occasional persona non grata happens.
