Hey there folks, how are you doing?

May Bobby Keys rest in peace.

International Politics

Overall

– Russia announced the opening of a new command center in the Arctic; I’m sure it is for control of minerals there before other powers get to the resource

Middle East

– A quick post on how The New York Times fails to cover crimes committed by Israel; It was awful in the summer during the bombings of Gaza

– In an effort to regain the “public’s trust,” Israeli Prime Minister dismissed two officials, called for Knesset to be dissolved and wanted an early election

– The problem in Syria is how the West is forcing the population to choose the lesser of two evils between the Assad regime and the Islamic State, when they are both the evils harming the lives of Syrians

– Even a Syrian official said the U.S.-led airstrikes failed to stop ISIS; Says a lot

Asia and Oceania

– With the military coup in Thailand, the U.S. would have had to cut off military funding to the government there, right? Right?
