I dunno he's ramped up every pre-existing conflict in the ME and this conflict with Iran is self-imposed

still pleasantly surprised here

I could see Hillary ordering that attack without blinking but she wouldn't have struck down the Iran Deal just to try and undo the black presidency

I mean Bill. Kosovo. I guess Kosovo is the new Forgotten War for America. It actually went well and didn't result in a quagmire and it was reacting to a very real genocide so the world didn't remember it as yet another imperialist chess move. I honestly don't even know if it was an imperialist chess move. I guess the 90s was the time when the US became "the world police" because we didn't stay in Iraq, Somalia seemed like a legit humanitarian conflict, and so did Kosovo. And with what happened after 9/11 to overshadow the 90s conflicts I don't think many people have publicly analyzed those conflicts to figure out how they were imperialist. I mean I clearly remember Kosovo and yet I remember nothing about it beyond the news coverage at the time so I can't even comment on what might have been going on behind the scenes, unlike so much of what happened in the 2000's.

Bill Clinton was a particularly bad president, but he seems like a real chill guy

Fake Streams Could Be Costing Artists $300 Million a Year

Quote:
In streaming, there’s a finite pot of revenue. If any of that that goes to an illegitimate source due to streaming manipulation, that’s a problem for members of the independent community.
That's a cute way to describe passing on the costs of a flawed system onto the people it couldn't survive without.
