Politics 2017 part 4

Besides, would you rather have no one know about everything wikileaks releases?

 

Even if they truly are anti-west, they have a very good point, and we need to look at the issues they point out. They are not anti west, if anything they are anti western government. And I can see why, and for the most part get behind the points they are making.

So with that Vauld 7 stuff, does it mean that Alex Jones is actually decent journalist? xD

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

What if Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Had Swapped Genders?

 

It takes gender bending for neoliberals to see why Hillary lost.

Clicking is hard for you or something?

Well he's trying to share a link, likely you wouldn't have come across it in other news sites for a while if at all. I guess he needed to comment on it to magically be different ?

Are you seriously not getting what I mean? Point of forums is discussion (usually). If he doesn't add any perspective or his view on it what is point of sharing links? Would it be ok if I just randomly drop links here and there?

Well I assume posters never read their links because half the time what people say doesn't really match what their posted article says. Would a snappy summary like "it takes genderbending for neoliberals to see why Hillary lost" somehow improve the post?

Sure. That is the whole point of the news thread in C&C. Bringing some info without the usual crank editorializing is perfectly fine in my book.

Didn't notice. It is still on a forum so still applies. It's the same as mentioning an article you read to someone else.

I am done debating this, seems like moders agree as well, have fun defending pointless argument

Not quite sure what gives you the impression that the mods care either way.

Except Wikileaks doesn't make " governments " transparent

 

 

They typically only  target the USA, where are all the leaks around Russia or China and these are much more intolerant and dictatorial governments than the USA

 

So its not about keeping governments in check, Wikileaks is a personal campaign to undermine the USA  and the West

 

This is ironically such a Russian response through and through.

 

Whenever someone in Russia exposes government corruption the typical response from pro-Putin camp is, "But in America/Europe/etc. they do this too. You're are targeting us. You're doing this to undermine our country. You're an American agent (just like Wikileaks is being labeled a Russian front) etc, etc..."

That's such an every country response, really. If it's a leaker you attack their patriotism and label them a traitor and criminal, if it's external you label them an agent of a foreign power and a criminal (even obviously stupid things like Assange being a traitor to a country he isn't a citizen of) and you do everything you can to deflect from what is actually said. Someone who thinks the US doesn't do exactly the same after Snowden if not after Wikileaks' Manning releases would be... naive, or just blindly backing their team.

Very interesting development, US marines are being sent to Syria...so its a modicum of  " boots on the ground " 

 

 

What do you guys think? I think the USA  should stay out of Syria, apart from its current commitments, and the let the Russians and other ME  countries do the work

 

The good news is this will lead to a quicker annihilation of ISIS  in Raqqa which is there capital. Once this falls there utterly unrealistic objective of a " Caliphate " will be over

I wonder what this means for Rojava.

 

No, but seriously... I'm very sceptical. US intervention in the ME has not archieved the greatest results. I hope they prove me wrong, but I'm afraid that Assad's regime will be strengthened by US forces and thus allow Assad to further oppress his people; in the name of anti Islamic terrorism (again, similarly to how te US funded dictatorships to fight communism).
