    Something more lighthearted...

    Parts of Melania Knavs-Trump turned 49 years old this week, and the White House chose the worst possible photograph to congratulate her on Twitter, which brought on some very creative photoshop work in the replies.

    I swear even the lower level employees of the administration are completely out of their depth.

    In some cases there are things that suck in the world that has nothing to do with us. And if we are getting involved, it's because it directly effects our interests.
    Looks like you didn't pay attention to your history class when they covered the Cold War.

    Myself selfish cruelty? When your response is to send more soldiers to die and kill for a cause that has nothing to do with us. Or maybe prop up another murdering mad man. Or maybe arm some more people we will fight against some day. You have warped sense of what your advocating for there hero.

    How is "has nothing to do with us" not selfish?

    If you can save the life of innocents, it should not matter whether they live in Pristina or in Pennsylvania.

    This naive and dumb. You are talking about war. To save innocent lives you still have to risk your own soldiers lives, kill other soldiers lives, and still risk civillian casualties for a purpose that has nothing to do with you. And lets be real blunt, the majority of the time we are doing it, it's some bs moralistic story to cover that we had an alterior motive.

    It's not our job to play world police force half way around the planet and contribute to violence to feel better about ourselves. War is messy, it exists throughout human history, it isn't going away. Sometimes you have to realize when something that has nothing to do with you is not worth the cost of lives and potential fallout.

    The last US intervention was Dubya's foolishness in Iraq - with no plan to stabilize the country afterwards beyond wishes and fantasies it ended up creating a bigger problem than it was trying to solve. A problem that persists to this day. You could consider the effect that has, or you could take the false equivalency route and apply Godwin's law.

    You have to always be aware of when you should intervene, lest you create a bigger problem than the one you are trying to fix.

    Canada’s new far right: A trove of private chat room messages reveals an extremist subculture

    They come from all walks of life: tradesmen, soldiers, a student teacher, a financial analyst, an aspiring lawyer, among others. And they are in every province, in communities large and small. They gather on the internet to strategize and seek pathways into mainstream politics. They are anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, Islamophobic, sexist and racist. They are young and radicalized. They are the new far right in Canada.

    The Globe and Mail has obtained a trove of 150,000 messages posted between February, 2017, and early 2018 that reveal the private communications of a loosely aligned node of Canadian right-wing extremists. The record of their continuing conversations reveals a movement, energized by the rise of white ethnonationalism in the United States, that aims to upend a decades-old multicultural consensus in this country.

    The discussions reviewed by The Globe and Mail originally took place on a text-and-voice application called Discord, an app meant for gamers that is also popular with the far right. The group called itself the Canadian Super Players, apparently to disguise themselves as video gamers.

    Psychiatrists Say Mueller Report Offers More Proof Of Trump’s Unfitness

    WASHINGTON ― President Donald Trump’s “reckless” response to the investigation into his campaign as detailed by special counsel Robert Mueller shows that he is unable to rationally process risk, making him a danger to the entire nation, according to a new analysis by a group of psychiatrists.

    “The singular reaction is perhaps indicative of the extent to which the president is, as with his contrary reaction to Russia’s attack on the integrity and validity of our process of electing a president, preoccupied with himself to the point where he does not even consider the good of the nation,” states the report, which is being released on Friday.

    The report bears an unwieldy title: “Mental Health Analysis of the Special Counsel’s Report on the Investigation Into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election.” The authors’ chosen subtitle, though, goes more to the heart of their thesis: “If One is Too Incompetent to Commit a Crime, Despite Trying Hard, Is One Competent to be President?”

    Oh I forgot the US entered World War II to heroically stop the Holocaust and stop all the atrocities. Oh wait they didn't even know it was going on and waited until they were attacked first.
