I'm sure some of the Social Injustice Warriors who hang out around here will get a kick out of this. Faith, the worlds first plus-sized female super hero, has tossed her support in with Hillary.





Some retailers are not too happy.

What is a "solicits"? Is that some sort of comic business term of art?
The headline and picture obviously convey the main point, but the article itself is so incompetently written that it's virtually unreadable.

Russians ofc are not any better, just pointing out Russian reactions are within bounds of reason under these circumstances.

NATO didn't hunt out Syria or Ukraine or Georgia. The latter two asked to be part of it and so did the "rebels" (as if they're one monolithic group) in Syria

Invading Crimea unprovoked and then blatantly lying about not invading Crimea seems rather not within bounds of reason

Nor does deliberate and repeated bombings against refugee shelters and hospitals and clinics in Aleppo and not even bothering to lie about it this time

It's not like the US goes around conquering other natio... Ah shit. Well we don't deliberately bomb hospitals and shoot at people and helicopters on their way to hospitals

You don't? watch the whole video


Ofc all support to rebels (of who majority are jihadists like al-nusra) is motivated by one main reason, to weaken Russia and Iran. You have to be stupid or ignorant on the issue not to see this. It's proxy US/Saudi vs Russia/Iran.

Yes Ukraine now asked to be part of NATO after democratically chosen government was overthrown with the support of the west, ofc Ukraine gov was corrupted and fuckin terrible but what exactly did you expect Russians to do? If Ukraine would join NATO or EU which seems inevitable at some point, Russian would not get renew on the lease of Sevastopol(runs out in 2042? or smth). So when things turned to shit, they figured out a way to steal it. They looked out for their long term business and if you were in their shoes you'd do the same.

Publisher's send solicits out to retailers and the media to help generate buzz for future issues. They are short PR blurbs about the issues in question.

Bleeding Cool is a good source for news, but they have some sub-par writers on staff. It's a running joke in the comment sections.

There are videos of US helicopter pilots opening fire on unarmed civilians and journalists and killing them while injuring children in the process. Fortunately it was released by Wikileaks, so blow hards such as yourself would not claim otherwise.

But that video is really just a sidenote, to be so blindly following some idiotic notion of American military graciousness and extreme carefulness in 2016 is ought to be some sort of mental disorder.

Both the article and the comments are entertaining. From the article:

Plus, also coming in the oversized, 48-page...

I hope that was done on purpose.

I also have a hard time believing there are no body-positive, female empowerment Republicans.
Of course there are. Just like there are also gay Republicans, rich white Democrats, PHDs voting for Gary Johnson and people who drive Hummers in the Green Party.

Well, we have a rich, white person about to become the Dem POTUS so I guess at least those exist...

While that's a shitty incident what's going on in Aleppo is far worse. Civilians going to hospitals are gunned down and then the area bombed when rescue workers try and go help them. This happens repeatedly. The same refugee shelters are bombed multiple times over a long period of time until shelter reinforcements give out. When shelters are relocated those are bombed too. Only the shelters are only guilty of treating both rebel and pro government forces

I don't see deliberate repeated vicious attacks on clearly the same civilian shelters on behalf of the US. On the other hand I see RT front page calling US hypocritical and equivocating the two. That would be like saying accidental deaths in a cop shootout is equivalent to a psychopathic serial killer who rapes and murders only women 16-18 yo

You'd have to be fairly blind to see it simply as Russia/Iran vs Saudi/US.

Why does SA keep flip flopping over their support over the Muslim brotherhood who are currently just one part of anti Syrian government forces? One minute they're trying to destroy the Egyptian uprising, next they're hosting MB leaders, then they're sending supplies to competing Islamic groups.

Why does SA ally with hardcore Salafi groups while also allying with the US? Why do the Saladfi groups accept support despite this blatant hypocrisy?

The Kurds want their own area (parts of which like northern Aleppo Russia wants them to have as a buffer) and are fighting the Syrian government, Turkey doesn't want Kurds to gain power, but is against the Syrian government, US is supporting the pro-democracy group only they're not really pro democracy

It's a huge shit show and to put the Syrian civil war as a proxy for the West versus Russia/Iran is just so oblivious to what is happening

If you want a good laugh, Google the character Faith and read about her power set. I still refuse to believe no one saw the irony in them when creating her. The jokes practically write themselves. wink.gif

Faith has already appeared in our feminist thread.

i've said west main motivation is to weaken Iran and Russia, thanks for pointing out there are 374238 more actors on this stage but USA wants Assad to fall for a specific reason and that's what matters in this context
post #2323 of 3373
Only it's not the main motivation. Does weakening ISIS have nothing to do with anything? If weakening Russia and Iran were the only objective why supply nominally democratic forces? They could easily just support any one of the other groups especially the hardcore Sunni groups who would totally tilt regional power against Iran

If they only want to weaken Iran why do they support the Kurds and thereby weakening Turkey who is one of the main counterbalances to Iran?

Your binary view really doesn't make much sense

The overarching theme is yeah Russia/Iran vs US but that's not all there is and seeing it simply as a proxy war seems a little oblivious
post #2324 of 3373
I would be very impressed and completely surprised if it comes out later that all this NATO encirclement , sponsoring of orange revolutions in Ukraine and Georgia, installing CIA stooge as president and then pretending to invite them into NATO was well thought out strategy to provoke Russia to actions that could be sold to EU as aggression. Just to get EU to dance to Washington tune & agree to slap some economic sanctions on Putin. Planned or unplanned, but the whole Russia-US confrontation is unfolding in US favor. Result of all this shitthrowing is EU economic ties with Russia severed or severely strained, which is good for WH. And now if recession strikes EU, US will come to the rescue with TTIP agreement.
Could they in Washington plan such a long game...I don't know.

They are doing just that, anyway what democratic forces you are talking about? Most effective and numerous fighting forces are jihadists. "Moderate rebel" is a very rare animal in Syria.

Gen. Petraeus had even idea to give weapons directly to Nusra. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/sep/02/david-petraeus-bright-idea-give-terrorists-weapons-to-beat-isis USA wants both Assad and ISIS gone, some of you guys are willing to arm al-queda to see that happen. Doesn't it ring a bell at all with what Reagan did in Afghanistan hmm?
