I was just going to do a blank post but since nobody’s going to read it, I might as well put in content.
Some people who got into a land war in Asia!!!
The Ukrainians kicked out their tsarling and now they’re being invaded by Tsar Putin I but they haven’t lost their sense of humor.
‘Russian-style’ ceasefire includes lots of shelling
These people dealt with Stalin-Hitler-Stalin, Tsar Putin I is like a walk in the park after that.
So Obama’s at the NATO meeting as they talk about the world exploding and we see this from our favorite Weasel, S.
NATO is meeting in Wales at the moment, so this doof is over our side. It was reported on the radio this afternoon that so many things are happening in NATO’s territory, there’s a chance the meeting will hold Obama’s interest this time. That, ordinarily, he finds these meetings so boring, he sends his aids out to buy crossword puzzle magazines to get him through.
I shit you not. It was a straight news broadcast, so maybe I…surely I misheard…?
You know, if everything bores you, it isn’t an indication that you’re extra super smart. If the most important job in the Western world seems beneath you, you aren’t a sooper genius. You’re a malignant narcissist and borderline retard.
Okay, that’s totally not funny at all because it’s true.
So as the world figures out their on their own, we might get interesting deals that drag us into a war. Yay,,,?
The NATO folks are giving some aid, but nothing military, but…
Stopping short of promising to send weapons that Ukraine wants, NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen noted that individual nations can make their own decisions about arming Kyiv.
France just declined to deliver the ships they were building for the Russian Imperial Navy, so maybe they could make up the slack by selling Ukraine some stuff.
I wonder what NATO’s gonna do. Sanctions aren’t going to do crap because if they sanction Russia, Russia raises the rates on their energy. It’s hard to economically war on someone when you’re economically dependent on that person.
It’s not a ‘deal’ with a Tsar/Bond Villain without a howler.
But Lavrov implied the US is hindering hopes of a swift progression towards a truce:
Okay, that’s funny.
I agree, albeit not for the same reason. I’d say it’s because Tsar Putin I knows there will be no response so he was a free hand.
You have to love this bit too.
Later on Thursday (September 4), Lavrov reportedly discussed and agreed on the need for a ceasefire with his French and German counterparts, while “avoiding any action that could undermine the positive trend.”
The positive trend being in the war Russia started and is waging. He’s actually playing the “Peace-Process” shell game.
That’s pretty funny.
IMMIGRATION: “Not many years ago, the idea of Minnesota as a hotbed of Islamic terrorism would have been laughable. No longer: a mass immigration of Somalis has put Minnesota on the front lines.”
Gee, how could that have happened?
Muslim cab drivers refuse to transport alcohol and dogs.
What could people have done to encourage that kind of thing?
Some Muslim Cashiers at Minnesota Target Refuse to Scan Pork Products
Eh, we’ll probably never know.
A little bit of hope.
Earth will experience a close call on Sunday, as an asteroid discovered only a few days ago is expected to safely pass very close by. The space rock will zip by our planet approximately 25,000 miles above our heads – one tenth the distance between here and the moon.
Now I plugged the numbers into y Fisher-Price orbital dynamics calculator and got a different number, but we all remember the last time that happened. At least I do, but keep your fingers crossed, we might get lucky.
Last, a chuckler stolen from the Outrider, don’t tell him. He can probably kick my ass.
