The Manchester bomber was enabled by the British government, by Patrick Cockburn – The Unz Review

Monday, May 28, 2018

Salman Abedi was responsible for what he did, but he could not have killed 22 people and maimed another 139 others, half of them children, if the British government had not acted as it did in Libya in 2011. And its responsibility goes well beyond its disastrous policy of joining the Libyan civil war, overthrowing Gaddafi and replacing him with warring tribes and militias.

A century on, why are we forgetting the deaths of 100 million? | Martin Kettle | Opinion | The Guardian

Sunday, May 27, 2018

This year is the 100th anniversary of the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918. Estimates about its impact vary. But when you read that a third of the entire global population probably caught the Spanish flu and that it killed between 50 and 100 million people in all corners of the globe – up to 5% of all human beings on the planet at the time – you get an inkling of its scale.

Wow, hard to imagine the number of dead.  FIVE PERCENT of the population.

Our American Pravda, by Ron Unz – The Unz Review

Friday, May 25, 2018

A photo showed the two individuals who negotiated that agreement. Britain was represented by John Maynard Keynes, a towering economic figure of that era. America’s representative was Harry Dexter White, assistant secretary of the Treasury and long a central architect of American economic policy, given that his nominal superior, Secretary Henry Morgenthau Jr., was a gentleman farmer with no background in finance. White was also a Communist agent.

“American Pravda”  — how appropriate!

Makes you wonder how many Conspiracy Theories are essentially true?

I, for one, am beginning to learn that EVERYTHING I’ve been taught may be FALSE, at worst, and SPIN, at best.

Argh!

Friday, May 25, 2018

Kansas created a video of two animated traffic cones discussing how early mergers back up traffic by creating one slower lane versus cars moving ahead with more efficient zipper merges.

I get annoyed when some bozo uses the should to be first.  Karma would put a cop up at the merge point!
