In November 2011, I wrote, “Wait, that stuff is still going on?”
So what was still going on three and a half years ago? Post in bold, links show it’s all still going on.
Syria is still killing people. Actually, that one is more nuanced than the rest, it’s pretty much a dog’s breakfast of everybody killing everybody there. Syrian Military, Isis, Hezbollah, other
The Gaza death cult is still shooting rockets at Israel. Yup.
Fukushima is still going on. Yup.
Mexican cartels are still killing Intertubers. Yup, though most of those alive are “self-censoring”
Somali pirates are still pirating. The funny part being that after ships avoided the area, it seemed as if piracy went down, when ships went back, it went up. Surprising only fools and the willfully ignorant.
Armenia is still occupying and acting all aggressive on Kazakh Azerbaijani lands, totally without Russia’s help and encouragement (wink wink, nudge, nudge). This is a case of people who’ve hated each other for a long time hatin’ on each other and Russia is still involved.
Terrorists are still operating in the Sinai. Now it’s ISIS of course. Giving Hamas Jihad Envy.
North Korea is still working on nukes and threatening with said nukes. Yup.
Iran is still threatening all and sundry with nukes. Now with more aid from Obama! This poll makes me proud to be an American. Subhed
A new Zogby poll suggests that more and more Americans trust Israel more than Obama to get rid of the Iranian nuclear threat.
A large plurality of Americans prefer that the Obama administration take a more dovish approach to end the Iranian nuclear threat but at the same time back Israel’s bombing the Islamic Republic…
EUnuchstan is still boned and still won’t even contemplate actually fixing anything. They keep talking “austerity”, which used to mean, “Living within your means” and now means, “Increasing taxes to pay for what you want.” Good luck with that.
On the lighter side, we might be looking at revolution in China. Yup.
Something not new, but the vid of the day
Crazy Russian guy lights himself on fire and jumps from 9 story building.
It lives up to its billing.
This liveleak vid is from the guy’s head-cam. I cannot figure out how to embed it. I’m computerly challenged.
Added 30 seconds later because I forgot it:
Same H/T, my generally sour attitude today.
