Phantom Pain

By mike flugennockSunday - June 17th, 2018Categories: Middle East, liberty, war and peace

I’m honestly lost for anything ironic or pithy to add to this, so I’m just going to leave this here:

“Maher Harara, 48, from the Shujaiya neighborhood east of Gaza City, told Human Rights Watch that ‘he saw a woman’s finger shot off as she was making a victory sign’ as she stood about 40 meters from the fences.”

– “Impose Sanctions on Netanyahu for Gaza War Crimes, says HRW”,
Electronic Intifada, 06.14.18

Bipartisanship No. 2

By mike flugennockTuesday - May 15th, 2018Categories: Middle East, Party Animals, war and peace

So, anyway, just so we’re clear on this… the GOP are worried that defense contractors will lose their jobs if we aren’t bombing Syria (or Yemen, or Iran); the Democrats are still “resisting” their weak little asses off, but when it comes to Syria “there’s no one more red, white and blue”, as Phil Ochs says.

There, done.

Blue Wave II: Banzai Pipeline

By mike flugennockThursday - May 3rd, 2018Categories: Middle East, Party Animals, Russiagate, Trumpism, elections, media

Well, the latest news from the “Blue Wave” midterm election scene actually isn’t looking that good for the Democrats. Despite a Reuters poll showing a 9% drop in Milennials’ support for the Democrats and – on top of that – the Chump Schumer DACA sellout, the Doug Jones disaster, their support for a massive war budget and the bombing of Syria, their continued support for Saudi brutality in Yemen and Israeli barbarity in Gaza, the collapse of the Russiagate freakshow and the whole Joy Reid hot mess, the Democrats are still acting all cocky and talking smack about a “Blue Wave” this November that will supposedly flood the House of Representatives with new and better Democrats.

Uh huh. I’ll go heat up the Jiffy-Pop.
