War On Hold For Big Bird

by lizard

For the moment it appears two wars are on hold so Americans can talk about Big Bird at an initial rate of 130,000 tweets per minute during the presidential debate.

Two wars you say?

Yes, because things happen in the world while we watch our Coke/Pepsi candidates fizz fuzzy math at us.

For example, a family got shelled in Turkey, killing five. That resulted in Erdogan making a play for parliamentary war powers.

Turkey’s PM has said his country has no intention of starting a war, after parliament in Ankara authorised military action inside Syria.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the authorisation was purely deterrence but he also warned that his country’s determination should not be tested.

Parliament earlier approved military action in response to Syria’s deadly shelling of a Turkish town.

Sure, no intention at all. Because NATO isn’t going along with it right now. Because America has a choice to make before more wars can start.

And that’s also why Bibi has had to deflate his war hard-on. Uri Avnery covers it pretty effectively, here.

In conclusion, instead of words, pictures.
