    The gentle art of editorializing through file photo selection.

    Vladimir Putin has appointed his ex-bodyguard to become Russia’s new “Emergencies Minister” after the last person to hold the office fell 90 feet to his death down a waterfall.

    That's on brand. In International Realism, you trade the rights of powerless nations to insulate powerful nations from inconvenience. So, you oppose Finland joining NATO for fear of alienating Russia. In Liberalism, you trade the rights of powerless people to insulate powerful people from inconvenience. So, you oppose BLM for fear of alienating Middle America.

    To his credit, Kissinger is not a hypocrite. He never pretended he was anything else -- his hero is Metternich. And he does say the difference is in the latter case the worst you risk is internal social upheaval, whereas in the former you risk nuclear annihilation. There is something to that.

    That's only fair. With wire transfers embargoed how else are they going to pick up their checks?

    So the Russians banned about 1,000 Americans from visiting, including Biden, Harris most politicians, dead people and Morgan Freeman whose only connection that could be thought of is that he was a CIA head in a movie based on a Clancy book that almost nuked Russia. However, Mitch, Rand and Donald were not banned.

    Russia's goal: eradication of Ukraine including the people and culture. Whatever they don't accomplish, they're just going to claim whatever they can get was the end game.

    Amazing. We're watching the Ukranian Trail of Tears, unfold in the digital era and 30%+ of Ameicans, let alone the globe, can't be bothered.

    This will make you feel better if you've ever fucked up at work.

    Russian journalist filmed the location of Russian military hardware in Ukraine. Ranting the propaganda malarkey whilst he was at it. After the video was shot. A Ukrainian missile landed on the hardware he was talking about. Dude disclosed 'classified' information
    The strike, because war is a video game now.

That my backyard dammit, not his. I'd be just as upset if said neighbor was encroaching on another neighbor instead of me. And no, I wouldn't be friendly with said neighbor if he was moving fences.

    This editorial is lazy and dangerous.

    Centrists are always willing to give up somebody else's rights in the name of "pragmatism."
