And we need to humiliate them

"WaPo: Professional Comics Just Can't Find Anything Funny About Joe Biden" (Sailer).  They can't as it would look cruel to make fun of somebody suffering from dementia.  Also, it doesn't match their politics (SNL spent a fortune mocking Trump and every minutia from the Trump White House).  Comment by Frank McGar:

"I think part of the problem is the fact that the stuff he has been doing and saying is so ridiculous it looks like parody but it’s not. The actual, real Biden is the joke. Biden’s the human equivalent of “Not the Onion.”"

"Cracks in the Anti-Russian Narrative (Soon Painted Over)" (Robinson).  The colorful anti-Putin PR.

"Iran’s leaders signal interest in new nuclear deal, but U.S. must act soon" (Devine).  Very narrow window due to election timing in Iran.  Of course, Biden's Khabinet has absolutely no interest in doing a deal against the express wishes of Bibi and the Israeli generals.

"The Benjamins May Be Losing Their Ability to Get US Politicians to Toe the Israeli Line" (Winstanley).  Sadly, WWIII is going to prove the enduring strength of shekeling and Maxwell-style blackmail.

"How the National Security State Manipulates the News Media" (Carpenter).

Backfired immediately!:  "U.S. Tells The Afghan Government To Form An Interim Power-Sharing Agreement With The Taliban" (War News Updates).  "U.S. Launches New Afghanistan Initiative Which Is Unlikely To Fly" (Moon).  Tweet (Justin Logan):
"Henry Kissinger on why he supported the Iraq War: “because Afghanistan wasn’t enough.” In the conflict with radical Islam, he said, they want to humiliate us. “And we need to humiliate them.”

Unspoken option three seems like where we wound up: humiliating ourselves."
