Well-meaning sanctions

"Jerusalem is ready to explode - the world can't say it wasn't warned" (Hearst).  Birth of a new intifada.

Tweet (Alan MacLeod):

""Well-meaning sanctions""

"Syria Regime Change Still on Western Agenda – Ex-Ambassador Peter Ford" (Cunningham). Would have been more enlightening with some Yinon.  On the OPCW and its shameful efforts to brush away the many whistleblowers and carry on with its broken Narrative:  "The Douma Controversy: Now is the time for transparency and accountability at the OPCW" (Robinson) and "Challenged on Syria cover-up, OPCW chief lies and US-UK-France evade" (Maté) and "The Syrian government has been blamed for the 2018 Saraqib chemical attack, but this time around India isn't buying it" (Klarenberg).

"Biden ‘drops by’ national security adviser’s White House meet with Mossad chief" (Magid).  Impossible to tell what happened, but in a world where everybody accepts Biden is functioning, who knows?:   "President Biden Met With The Mossad Director In Washington D.C. To Discuss Iran" (War News Updates).  Obviously, these meetings where the lackey gets its orders from the boss are fraught with PR peril.

The value of excess deaths:  "Are Inheritances Helping Stimulate Consumer Spending Booms?" (Sailer).

On bringing a gun to a knife fight:  "Vox at Its Voxiest" (Sailer).

Tweet (John Edwin Mason):
"Astonishing cartoon for 1884. "The only way to prove that you have been clubbed by a policeman -- photography him in the act." 1884!"
Tweet (Ben Norton) ("Colombia’s president withdrawing tax reforms after mass protests"):
"Police in Colombia (who were trained by the US) have been shooting anti-austerity protesters in the eyes.

Police in Chile's US-backed right-wing regime did the same thing, shooting thousands of anti-austerity protesters in 2019 & 2020, blinding hundreds: https://thegrayzone.com/2020/02/24/chiles-us-backed-shooting-protesters-blinding-maiming-thousands/"
"Thomas Frank: Bill Clinton Destroyed The Democratic Party" ('Hunter Wallace') (Frank starts at 4:40).  NAFTA and welfare 'reform'.

Osama's bookshelf:  "Noor Bin Ladin Reflects on Osama’s Death and Biden’s America, Where Patriots Are the New “Terrorists”" (bin Laden):
"A strange twist of fate is revealed by documents found in Bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound showing an assassination plot to kill Barack Obama. The specific intention was to weaken America by having Joe Biden ascend to the presidency:
When American special operations forces raided Bin Laden’s compound in 2011, on Obama’s orders, they found a trove of computer files. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence translated and published the last of that material in 2017. Among the many memos was one where bin Laden called for the assassination of Obama. 
“Obama is the head of infidelity, and killing him automatically will make Biden take over the presidency,” bin Laden wrote, according to a 2012 Washington Post article. “Biden is totally unprepared for that post, which will lead the U.S. into a crisis.” [Austin American Statesman]"
