Down the drain

Putin conspiracy theories:  "Nemtsov killing exposes cracks in Kremlin unity".  It takes the blame off Putin, so there may be some truth to it.  On the other hand, Reuters also has a very vague (and late) story on MH17:  "Exclusive: From 'Red October' village, new evidence on downing of Malaysian plane over Ukraine"

"Philly busses ordered to accept ads featuring Hitler"

"Israeli op-ed writer calls on Israel to nuke Germany, Iran"  Hilarious only if they nuke Germany using German-supplied subs.  Remember:  "Israeli Professor - 'We Could Destroy All European Capitals'"

"Mind the PUP: Top download portals to avoid"

"Silvio Berlusconi's 'bunga bunga' acquittal upheld by high court"  Seriously?

"‘New IMF loan to Ukraine will go down the drain’"  "Ukraine SITREP Thursday March 12th, 2015"  It is difficult to remember that the Maidan protests were ostensibly about corruption.

"Obama’s Hard Turn to the Right in Hemispheric Policy"  This weirdness is yet another symptom of imperial collapse.

"The Christopher Hitchens Prize For Un-Hitch-Like Behavior"  The $50,000 is to help cope for the embarrassment of winning.
