It’s the first of it’s kind they say, and I believe them. For all of recorded history, when soldiers of one country invaded and occupied another, deaths among the invading forces were accepted as ‘casualties of war’, not homicides. A soldier on active duty in a war zone couldn’t be ‘murdered’. At least until now. This week, a British national, Anis Abid Sardar from north-west London, has gone on trial for the ‘murder’ of Sergeant First Class Randy Johnson in roadside attack outside Baghdad in 2007.

The world is so messed up that calling it a ‘freak show’ doesn’t quite do it justice. We need a new word to capture just how backwards, upside down, screwed up, and utterly freakish our world really is. Thankfully, we may have found one, thanks to our friends in Russia and an odious little troll known to inhabit the U.S. State Department until approximately 1 week ago. The whole world is psaki. We may also have found a word to describe the only proper response to seeing just how psaki the world is, thanks to Jen Psaki’s equally cringe-worthy, ‘ex-CIA’ deputy, Marie. There’s only one thing to do when you’re confronted by such a scale of lies: to harf. Read More →Share
The Germanwings crash “trial by media” continues unabated. The most recent evidence produced to back up the official story is the alleged discovery of a cell phone video of the last moments of the plane and its passengers. Reporters from both French magazine Paris Match and German daily Bild claim to have viewed the video that portrayed a scene “so chaotic that it was hard to identify people” where “the sounds of the screaming passengers made it perfectly clear that they were aware of what was about to happen to them.” Read More →Share
When I heard about the crash of Germanwings Flight GWI9525 in the French Alps on the morning of March 24th, I was shocked, but to be honest, not that shocked. It’s not that I expected it to happen, but this was the fifth such incident in the last year. If that frequency is maintained, the statistically-very-low chances of meeting an untimely end on a commercial flight will have to be recalculated. Read More →Share
The 4 year-old ‘Houthi’ revolution in Yemen didn’t get a color name because it wasn’t backed by Western powers. In fact, it’s not called a revolution at all by Western governments or press, it’s called an “insurgency”, just like Iraq. And we all know that those fighting against the US military in Iraq were terrorists, right? Read More →Share
I’ve been wondering; is everyone meant to be impressed by the latest “ISIS” attacks in Yemen where someone detonated 5 bombs inside Mosques packed with innocent men women and children, killing 130? Or what about “ISIS” gunning down 23 tourists in a Tunisian museum? Do the perpetrators of these atrocities think that gunning down defenseless people in order to spread fear of Muslim terrorists makes them special? Because it really doesn’t. It makes them despicable degenerates, the shit on the sole of the shoe of the human race. Read More →Share
Boris Nemtsov was shot in the back as he walked with his Ukrainian “girlfriend” near the Kremlin in Moscow. Nemtsov ran unsuccessfully for office in 1989 before eventually being elected to Russia’s parliament in 1990. As deputy minster for economic reform under Yeltsin, he failed to actually deliver economic reform amid the August 1998 economic crisis and it cost him his job. Read More →Share
In late November 2013, the ‘Euromaidan’ in Kiev began as a popular protest against a generalized state of corruption and cronyism in Ukraine. The spark that ostensibly ignited the protests was the inability of then President Yanukovych to sign an EU Association Agreement that would cut Ukraine’s economic and military ties to Russia in favor of a closer relationship with the EU and NATO.

Days before Isis released its gory video depicting the Christian Egyptians’ beheadings, Libya’s former Prime Minister warned that the group would soon reach the Mediterranean and even Europe if order was not restored in the country.
Ali Zeidan said Libya’s fractured government and easy access to weapons seized during the fall of Colonel Gaddafi made it more susceptible to the activities of jihadists, according to The Times.
“(Isis) are growing. They are everywhere,” he added.
Here’s where the coincidence theorists come in. Read More →Share
