    Dayton shooter was armed counter-protester at Ku Klux Klan rally

    The man who killed nine people in Dayton’s Oregon District was seen carrying a gun and protesting against the Ku Klux Klan at a rally downtown in May.

    Connor Betts, 24, was shot and killed by Dayton police during the Sunday morning rampage. Neither the police nor the FBI have identified a motive for the attack, though the federal authorities said Tuesday he “was exploring violent ideologies” before the shooting.

    Apparently the "Strong and Stable" Britain has released Grace 1 and did totally not cave to Iran.

    They shouldn't have detained it in the first place .

    edit: what did Trump/Bolton expect? The moment the UK did the US's bidding (shameful display!) they dropped the UK like a hot potato. The UK was stupid to assume otherwise from Trump, the US was stupid to not follow up. For the US this was kindergarten powerplay by a kindergarten administration. All they achieved was to put the UK, the US's most loyal ally, in it's place. And for what?

    "Trump says he canceled peace talks with Taliban over attack"

    Why even bother having talks? The Taliban aren’t going to stop fighting the Afghan Government until they have there heads on pikes.

    deja-vu?

    It's the only way to save face, which is important (yes, really). Also, these peace talks may be the best chance to get the Taliban to agree not to harbor Al Qaeda, ISIS, etc and stick to that agreement.

    Edit: But yeah, the Afghan government is over shortly after we leave.

    So according to the Beeb, the Houtis claim to have dronestrike'd a Saudi oil terminal. Link. Of course, the word Iran is used as often as possible.

    Tricky situation, i think most of the liberal west is more critical of the war in Yemen than of the Houthis striking back. But if you fuck with uncle Joe's gas prices, who knows what happens.


    Or maybe im overvaluing this, as usual.

    First, it is ridiculed.
    Second, it is violently opposed.
    Third, it is accepted as being self-evident..

    you know what, the US staging massed strikes and a eventual invasion of Iran after Bolton getting run out of office like the fucking muppet he is would not be out of tune with how Hellworld usually works.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    I think it's funny because even in his melting-brain fugue he's at least a little skeptical of all the neocon foreign policy.

    The idea of "start a war" may pop in his brain anyway, but at least he's not psychotically laser-focused on that goal like the Bushes were

    one advantage of that is that (hopefully) he's not religiously convinced that the miliitary might of the US is unbeatable.

    on one hand, that reduces the chances of a burning carrier in the gulf and increases the chances that the actual war is going to be prosecuted by not completely insane people on the other hand, it's Trump, he might just open with nuclear strikes because the Iranian government said something mean about his real estate projects on twittter.

    Few silly drones and all sins concerning one embassy visitor few months ago are forgotten.

    But the attack has had quite high RoI... The next stage from dropping grenades into open tank hatches.

    I think thats just a super low percent shot. There is definitely video of dropping 81? mortar shells from a drone, so they are using the technique. Then again, ME tank crews and their “Us pillbox” tactical mindset.
    meh

    There have been plenty of videos around of just that, no one wants to sit in a t-series tank in the desert if they can avoid it, big unventilated steel cans...
