Russia: proving once again that it is little more than a backward country ruled by KGB thugs and kleptocrats, a punk rock band gets 2 years for “hooliganism” aka thinking that peaceful assembly was a human right, while the Moscow city government bans gay pride marches for 100 years. You don’t need a gulag when you’re grinding your country into the dust.
Syria: descending into civil war which will likely take Lebanon down with it. Still no sign of an international consensus, so the bloodshed will continue.
Paul Ryan/Mitt Romney: there’s nothing to say about these two amoral, cowardly liars that they haven’t said already.
Iraq: also on the cusp of civil war, the sooner we’re out for good the sooner a settlement can be reached. Since they have 60% of the population, while controlling most of the government and the firepower, the Shiites will win.
Afghanistan: the disaster continues. It’s clear there’s absolutely no reason for us to remain another 2 years. If Obama is reelected, we’ll pull out next year.
Asian island madness: who cares?
Unemployment: should be the number one issue, but has roughly the same importance in this election as the question of which Asian country owns which island. A disgrace, but what do you expect when both parties essentially serve only the wealthy?
