Seek help
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Usually we would be extremely sympathetic to people suffering from the long-term effects of Tory substance abuse, but when your drug addiction leads to insane outbursts about bombing Russia — which would inevitably provoke a world war, killing millions — it's hard to shed even crocodile tears.

Palmyra Was a Russian Bloodbath, According to Reuters

Palmyra Was a Russian Bloodbath, According to Reuters | Global politics | Scoop.it
Reuters reads a blog, then confirms that 10 private contractors were killed in Palmyra
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Thousands of private contractors have also died in the wars while providing logistical and security support to US troops. The US government does not thoroughly report contractor deaths, their families are often not compensated for their deaths and injuries, and contractor health care is generally substandard. Foreign workers for US contracting firms often do not have their deaths recorded or compensated.

US Dream of Toppling Putin Backfires Big Time

US Dream of Toppling Putin Backfires Big Time | Global politics | Scoop.it
Editor's Note: Helmer points out what should be obvious to the policy wonks in Washington: Attempts by foreign powers to bring Russia to her knees never work out well. The Russian economic recovery went sharply into reverse in February, according to the latest report from Rosstat, the federal state statistics service.  But voter approval for President Vladimir Putin remains super-stable at a level unknown in Europe or the rest the world.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Putin’s achievement cannot be exaggerated -- no political leader of a major country in the world is recording such durably high approval ratings. But the achievement is qualified. Without the US war in Ukraine, then US and European Union (EU) sanctions, the approval line for Putin would have continued downwards as the collapse of the oil price and the rouble tipped the economy into recession, and as Russian voters lost trust in their future.

Russia and China Catch Security Council in a Devastating Lie

Russia and China Catch Security Council in a Devastating Lie | Global politics | Scoop.it
Security Council members expressed “unanimous concern” about Islamic State's use of chemical weapons in Iraq — then blocked a Russia-China resolution to investigate. Why?
Enrique Ferro's insight:
"Unanimous concern" is a meaningless baloney phrase used to feign outrage about atrocities in non-western countries We suppose a third possibility is that "someone else" has been using chemical weapons in Mosul. At any rate, Russia and China just caught the West in a big, embarrassing and shameful lie — and anyone who's paying attention can see the double-standards and hypocrisy. This is just the latest diplomatic team victory for Beijing and Moscow. Expect many more.

Russia Has Unfair Military Advantage Because It’s Not Bombing Seven Countries, Notes US Smartypants

Russia Has Unfair Military Advantage Because It’s Not Bombing Seven Countries, Notes US Smartypants | Global politics | Scoop.it
But much of the U.S.'s spending is paying for military operations overseas, such as the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

“U.S. forces … go halfway around the world to fight. And they fight in the other guy’s backyard, at times in places of the other guy’s choosing. And that’s the problem,” said David Ochmanek, senior defense researcher at the RAND Corporation. 

China and Russia, meanwhile, are spending heavily on “modernization” to improve their militaries' quality, efficiency and overall performance. The strategy is paying huge dividends, especially for China.
Yes, of course. It's so simple, and so unfair: The Pentagon is forced to spend money on bombing defenseless brown people all over the world. Meanwhile, the devious Russians and Chinese can modernize their military forces. 
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Our favorite example of this uniquely American philosophy is when the City of Los Angeles decided that it would fix its failing public education system by spending $1.3 billion to provide each and every pupil with an iPad — because that will make them learn better.
