Gaza strikes: Motives and consequences – Inside Story – Al Jazeera English

Gaza strikes: Motives and consequences – Inside Story – Al Jazeera English.

I’ve taken an entire course just on this one conflict and I will tell you that this goes beyond the impasses of American politics. This isn’t just ideologies against ideologies. This is religion, ethnicity, politics, ideology, history, anger, international pressure, fundamentalism and just a whole bowl of human stupidity and stubbornness.

Something is going to have to change. And I think it will. Soon. And I only hope it falls to the good instead of the really, really messy and, frankly, terrible.

BBC News – Mali crisis: African Union backs plan to deploy troops

BBC News – Mali crisis: African Union backs plan to deploy troops.

Here is some news from Africa. Very interesting in that I don’t think you get to see often so much careful planning and coordination shown in the news.

BBC News – US election: Unhappy Americans ask to secede from US

BBC News – US election: Unhappy Americans ask to secede from US.

*facepalm* oh my goodness America. What is this? 1860? I mean, if you really want to make Obama into Lincoln, that’s fine, but if I recall correctly seceding from the Union didn’t go so well for those that did.

And of course, they won’t be able to. If the “South” didn’t secede during Civil Rights, I doubt they’ll actually do it now. But this is still SO DUMB.
