What’s your opinion on that whole Assad /chemical weapons story?
I’ve heard a couple different takes on it from the right.
It's possible, but I don't think Assad would authorize it. Now some officer freaking out/breaking orders? Definitely in the realm of 'I can see it'
But so far the stories have been that Assad's government has destroyed all their chemical weapons... which leaves the rebels themselves as either liars or guys that did it to themselves.
It's pretty immaterial though, since the UN won't ever get Assad charged with anything
I really need to educate myself more on that. I’ve been focusing on studying history so much I keep finding myself not even knowing what’s happening in present day lol
Libya's also getting spicy again: Tripoli is seeing armed groups fighting each other again, rocket attacks on the airport, etc. The whole nine yards.
>not showing the flag
Jealous as ever, I see
@Bjorn - MD oh yeah I saw that. The main actor said they left the flag out to be more inclusive
Fuck that guy
"Lead actor Ryan Gosling threw more gasoline on the dumpster fire when he defended director Damien Chazelle’s decision to leave out the flag. The landing, he said, was a 'human achievement,' not an American one, and a victory “transcending countries and borders.”
"Gosling was asked at the Venice Film Festival whether omitting the scene was deliberate and the actor attempted to sidestep the question by responding that the moon landing “transcended countries and borders.”
Get an Angolan on the Moon and I might believe that. 'Till then... naw
Was our space program that led us to the moon landing funded by anyone besides American tax dollars? If not, yes it’s an American achievement
they’re over here culturally appropriating the damn moon landing.
It's times like this that I wish VR was real, just so I could put on aviators and go, "tough luck world, get on America's Lunar Level"
He's working really hard to lose those honorary identitarian points he accrued with *Drive* and *Blade Runner 2049*...
Ah yes, 'Tism Waifu Simulator 2049
I’m showing my bf blade runner tonight. He just got into far right politics so I feel like I’m about to make him autistic
They should take the Battlefield 5 approach and make Neil Armstrong a quadriplegic black woman
I dunno, Neil Armstrong planting the flag with some metal prosthetic arm would be cool
LITERALLY a strong arm planting the flag
Neil Armstrong? How about Louis Armstrong
@TV Don't be heteronormative, bigot. *It* should be a tranny, too.
>Trump's cut funding to a UN aid agency that supports Palestinian refugees
I feel like every UN meeting is just the American Roast
Ironic given how we basically make the UN mean anything
Really the UN is just the soft end of American foreign policy
America: the worst country in the world, but still give us all your money
More like more money for Raytheon, Northop-Grumman, and Lockheed-Martin
Gotta pay for them vacations somehow
...to make weapons for the IDF <:sad:366743316475281408>
