Syria is a region war between Iran the Saudis.China will transition and will do what's in the best interest of the Chinese government, which is progressive economic liberalism. Europe will become a region ruled by socialist governments whom are controlled by a Central Bank. Mali and Yemen are the same problem that can be solved with drone strikes and special forces raids.

There, now back to posting white people crying over Romney's loss.

Listen, we're facing 1000 years of darkness, the death of America, and my name on some celestial hotel booking to Hell (I'm still waiting on my email confirmation) and I'm supposed to care about the rest of this giant planet that doesn't revolve around the U.S.?

You're taking crazy pills.

The Drudge Report auto-refreshes every 30 seconds. At least it did back when I used to visit a few years ago. Then he brags about all the hits he gets.

Execution by mortar fire? WTF?

Even ignoring the logistics, that seems unnecessarily expensive.

Can some conservative please clarify for me when the thousand years of darkness is supposed to begin? Was it election day? The day after? Or will it be inauguration or some other day?

Thank you.

Everytime I read current events briefs like this or in the first few pages in a copy of The Economist, that song by Midnight Oil starts running through my head. You know, that one.

oh, don't forget that you all missed that Iran fired on a US drone that was unarmed and not in their airspace.

oh wait, you missed that because the White House chose not to report it last week.

ooppsie.

Do you think we would wait for a Russian or Chinese drone to enter our airspace before firing on it? I don't.

Why wouldn't Iran fire on it? We've been harassing them quite a bit lately.

Are you trying to sound like a racist black person or a white guy who is down with the homies? Or are all republicans white? Or just Romney supporters?

Someone should send this to Fartbama. If anyone has been out of the loop, it's him. Maybe he can blame it on a video.

If you're going to have target practice you need a target. I was surprised to hear the US has conducted 35 drone strikes in Yemen, and that the Yemeni government endorses the program.

Know how we can tell grammar wasn't your favorite subject?

538 got everything right. Drudge is constantly wrong. -- These are the two different sides? Reality vs. Crazy Town?

I wish to live in a world where reality isn't a political issue. But, sadly I live in reality where reality is a political issue.

Why is this worth mentioning? Is it a big deal? Should we start another war? Be pissed because we didn't know sooner? I'm genuinely curious how this is supposed to make me feel or care.
 
2012-11-08 04:19:19 PM  
tl;dr of TFA from a guy that didn't read the article: I know that we, the journalists have stuck to solely spewing bullshiat about the presidential election for the past year, but it's clearly due to your lack of intelligence, not our inability to do our jobs and actually cover news events other than the major 24/7 story, and to prove this fact here's an article for you to read about how I was totally doing my job but you weren't paying attention because you're too stupid and misinformed.

Clearly Romney would have won by that predicted landslide if the White House hadn't kept this terribly important news a secret.

IMPEACH!

War continues in the Middle East, gas and groceries are expensive, technology continues to amaze and children don't show enough respect for their elders.

Cut and paste for next year.

Why wouldn't Iran fire on it?
oh, I don't know, but maybe when you fire on someone else's military equipment when they aren't even in your country, people think that is a bad idea, ya know, that whole provocation or act of war thing.

I am pretty sure they were curled in a fetal position in a corner under a box muttering and whimpering. That's how I like to picture it.
