Some child victims we care about, some we don't

Some child victims we care about, some we don't. An injury to a child caused by someone we don't like, we beat our breasts and tear our hair out. An injury to a child caused by someone we do like, well, shit happens.

Top left, you'll undoubtedly recognize little Omran Daqneesh, injured in a "Russian or Syrian" airstrike, and nobody ever figured out, or cared, what party dropped the bomb. Little Omran was photographed by the "White Helmets," a group of PR campaigners embedded in Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian al-Qaeda affiliate. The "White Helmets" are dearly loved in the "West," are seriously funded by the "West," and have amazing contacts in the Western LameStream media. If you've managed NOT to see a photo of Omran, you'd be quite unusual. Omran, despite being alive, which makes him luckier than a lot of Syrian kids, is a victim we care about. A "worthy" victim.

Syrian "Revolution": Campists unite!

We're duds!

Those of us who support the elected Syrian government over the foreign-supported and supplied proxy war, the fighters of which are a wahhabist, head-chopping rabble, have it all wrong. We're not anti-imperialists, we're "campists."

Former CIA spook endorses Clinton! WaPo!

(Achtung! I despise Donald Trump. Maybe even more than you. I've despised him for many, many years, since long before he decided to run for POTUS. This is not a pro-Trump piece. I discuss here what I believe to be the actual situation.)

Lies, lies, more lies...Milošević exonerated

This is an absolute stunner. Slobodan Milošević has been completely exonerated of being the “mastermind” behind the war crimes in Bosnia. Here's where to find it.

In March this year, the "International Tribunal ... issued its judgement in the case of Radovan Karadžić, the head of the Republika Srpska (RS).

Trackpads: Deliberately Useless Devices?

Recently I managed to drop my laptop less than a third of a meter to the floor on its side. Unfortunately, this this pushed the little USB thingie that runs the wireless mouse up into the housing to the point where the mouse no longer worked.

So, until I returned home, then, I was stuck using the trackpad. There was some bad language involved.

Vũng Tàu: Further than I thought

I was in Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam for a doctor's appointment a coupld Fridays ago (nothing serious), and had to return the following Monday.

What to do? Well, Vũng Tàu's only 84km away, why not go there for the weekend? Simple!

Er... not so much

'Political Correctness' means pretty much zero now

You getting tired of "political correctness?" I know I am.

Maybe not in the way you are. The term is much in use by people who've appropriated it to use as a cudgel.

John McCain: Make-Believe Maverick

A closer look at the life and career of John McCain reveals a disturbing record of recklessness and dishonesty.

Israel, Palestine, Terror

To assist in understanding what's going on when reading about the Israeli occupation of the West Bank/Jerusalem, and the acts of genocide that are taking place there, I offer the following:

"Terrorism" is a strategy of committing acts to provoke terror in the general population so as to create pressure to effect political change.

Achcar: Left confused about Syria. Me: Oh, really?
