I see we’re continuing the grand American tradition…of taking the word of dictators that they will not engage in genocide, so that we can act “shocked” when genocide takes place.

Lengthy article on the limo crash that killed 20 last year. Seems like a combination of equipment failure (rear hydraulic brake lines ruptured) and driver error contributed to the horrific crash. The prosecution continued to show the limos’s owner gross regard for vehicle safety.

There’s no mechanism in the North Atlantic Treaty to kick any country out, so there’s no reason to consider this any further. Turkey could leave voluntarily, but then Greece would be in and they’d be out, so that’s pretty doubtful.

Yes, this exactly. The snippets I have seen on social media imply that the coordination was done weeks ago. The only people surprised were in the US Govt. And possibly the Kurds. Although Barzani is reported to have met with Lazarov earlier this week.

Love-Child of Cassandra and Sisyphus  Oct 9, 2019 • 12:04:46pm

One of the major strategic goals of Russia, whether the USSR or the current kleptocracy, is to peel away Turkey from being so submissive to the US. Because Turkey is one of three border areas that Russia has always had as their strategic weakness (the other being trapped by ice in the north, requiring their ships to sail next to Norway, and the other in far east, with their ports also succumbing to ice in winter.)

That it took until Trump was elected to effect this strategy is telling.

Turkey has, since the days of Ataturk, been seen as an important relationship with the US.

It now appears as if the Erdogan is calling the shots on Trump, that is, the US is now submissive to Turkey’s nationalistic goals.

Limbaugh is foul, but he’s not stupid. I think it’s dawning on him - and others - that Trump is increasingly indefensible and threatens to make “conservatism” unelectable for a generation.

If Trump loses Limbaugh and his ilk, then Trump is well and truly fucked.

The livestream showed his arrival in front of the synagogue, his ammunition and weapons arsenal in the backseat and in the passenger seat of a rental car. You can also see how Balliet installed explosive devices on the Jewish church and how he tried to shoot open the front door, which did not work.

United States of America

The International Court of Justice is not the same as the International Criminal Court, although both operate under the auspices of the UN; the US is a member of the ICJ, but not the ICC (thank the Republicans for that one).

The ICJ:

The International Court of Justice (ICJ)[1] sometimes called the World Court, is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations (UN). The ICJ’s primary functions are to settle international legal disputes submitted by states (contentious cases) and give advisory opinions on legal issues referred to it by the UN (advisory proceedings). Through its opinions and rulings, it serves as a source of international law.

The ICC:

The International Criminal Court (ICC or ICCt)[2] is an intergovernmental organization and international tribunal that sits in The Hague, Netherlands. The ICC has jurisdiction to prosecute individuals for the international crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and crimes of aggression. It is intended to complement existing national judicial systems and it may therefore exercise its jurisdiction only when certain conditions are met, such as when national courts are unwilling or unable to prosecute criminals or when the United Nations Security Council or individual states refer situations to the Court.

re: #231 Belafon

At what point did they think he should resign, though, before or after impeachment?

I’d have to look for more, but USA Today endorsed resignation in Sept. ‘98, while articles of impeachment weren’t drawn up until October.

EDIT: Looks like A lot of papers were making that call ‘round September.

There’s a few Reagan quips they could use…

“There you go again, Mr. President.”

“Are you better off now than you were four years ago?”

(If Bernie or Biden) “I for one will not make age an issue in this campaign; I will not use my opponent’s youth and inexperience an issue in this campaign.”

(if the economy slows between now and Nov 2020) “A recession is when a neighbor loses his job, a depression is when you lose yours. And recovery starts when Jimmy CarterDonald Trump loses his”

“Facts are stubborn things.”

Sounds better in the original Russian; the head of the KGB in Chernobyl used it to take a dig at Reagan:

“Of course, I trust you. But you know the old Russian proverb: “Trust, but verify.” And the Americans think that Ronald Reagan thought that up…”

Yeah, I knew the story of Reagan learning that line in a briefing on the Soviet Union and sticking with it. It’s a good proverb, and smart advice.
