We owe the Kurds their country.

They've been better allies to the west than Iraq, Iran, Syria, or Turkey ever were or will be. They have bled on the front lines on the same side as US and UN forces in numerous conflicts and all they get in return is further isolation and oppression.

The US should back not only their independence from Iraq, but withdraw from all ties in Turkey and back their independence there as well. We should take steps to ensure the territory they've purged of ISIS in Syria remains theirs, and pressure Iran to give them autonomy.

There's nothing more wrong we could do to these people than tell them they can't be free because we want the oppressive, corrupt, unstable regimes they want out of to stay in place.

Its an eternal stain on the US that Bush told them to rebel because we'd have their back, only to run away like a little bitch the instant they played their hand.

Turkey, on the other hand, has appointed a tyrant to rule, a tyrant who is determined to remain in power until his death, no matter how many citizens has to imprison and kill to maintain it. Upon his death the country will descend into chaos.

That time of chaos would be a great moment for the Kurds seize control of their destiny.

I honestly cannot fathom what sustains the US-Turkey alliance. It's not like this regime is keeping the islamic fundamentalists at bay like the other scummy Middle-Eastern dictatorships the US was allied with before the Arab Spring fiasco. They provide safe passage for incoming recruits to ISIS, medical care for wounded jihadi fighters, and make a profit from black market sales of Syrian oil--and that's just the stuff we have proof of.

>Bush told them to rebel because we'd have their back
Indeed, such shame. Which reminds me, Obama gave them weapons, training, and hope--only to heel-turn on regime change and the anti-Assad alliance in Syria shortly before the end of his term.

Well, you can thank Turkey for being their usual shitheaded selves about Kurds and Russia informing us that they would start firing on US forces if we didn't stop making their #1 arms importer Assad cry.

They still are completely autonomous in Iraq, primarily due to the US letting them do whatever the fuck they wanted in their territory with full logistical support. At this point they have better control over it than the rest of Iraq has over its territory.

Once Erdogan dies in power they'll have their country. It's just going to take a while. Well, assuming the rest of the Turkish military doesn't get tired of his shit, instead of just part of it. Part didn't work.

Well, if you want to get an exact total you'd have to wait, but if you want to get an estimate you can just start at an arbitrary point on the horizontal axis and count across, pick an arbitrary point on the vertical axis and count down (or up), then multiply the two numbers by each other. Do it a few times at different spots then average out the results. Won't be exact but it'll be in the same ballpark.

Hopefully you like looking at anuses.

That could be a lot more work than you anticipate. Those are almost certainly not each of them a unique anus picture. Collage generators usually use any given image of a collection multiple times, can use them at different rotations, etc, to get the most optimal rendition.

I would need sophisticated image processing to find out the hard way, but the creator of the image might remember the settings they specified to their generator (and the size of their anus collection).

I am not particularly a fan of anuses, but I'm not particularly perturbed by them either. I feel pretty /eh/ about the anuses themselves, it's the chance to say "Donald Trump is _____ assholes!" and publish this image in an "editorial" somewhere with lax standards.

What the fuck is an abortionist? Are there people out there who are PRO-Abortion? NO there are not.

ANTI-Abortion folks would like there to be so they can have a black and white debate about this but there can't be, because NO ONE WANTS AN ABORTION. They are not fun, they are not therapeutic, they are not healthy. All they do is stop an unwanted fetus from becoming an unwanted baby.

Someone mentioned personal responsibility somewhere. That would be VASTLY better situation then aborting a fetus. But too bad, stupid/religious/ non-responsible people have to fuck all the time.

Never forget the wealthy fuck all the time too. The difference is that they pay a doctor and institution to provide the abortion with enough compensation to prevent anyone from reporting it to the authorities.

The louder someone screams about how wrong abortion is, the more likely it is they're covering up a guilty conscience. Too bad that conscience won't stop them from doing it again.

To be fair, Kim Jong Tiny Penis can't launch anything heavier than a conventional warhead further away than Japan right now, and he hasn't made sufficient fun of Trump's tiny hands, tiny crowds, tiny approval rating, tiny Russian bribes, etc., etc. to elicit that kind of response from Trump.

Then again, even if he did, Trump's handlers wouldn't let him see it. Fox & Friends does a good job of filtering out anything they don't want him to see, and all anyone else has to do is not include his name in every other paragraph for Trump to stop reading his national security briefings.

The long game:

The right casts a shadow of treason, and bolsters the frightful spectre of Russia the left pans them for it, makes them look weak, divided, they falter; the American people--and finally the president himself--slowly redefining what it means to "hack" by propagandizing that hacking someone's dirty laundry is an attempt to sway public opinion. At the same time the left is going to be polishing the image of Russia in the self-identifying intellectual leftist core of loyal viewers as well as the channel-surfing general populace with a granule of curiosity about the outside word; helping people come to terms with Russia as a "peer" nation.

No one isn't colluding.

Has anyone else noticed that people are becoming generally more belligerent and less concerned with reality outside their point of view?

It seems to me like more and more I hear comments that sound like his tweets; get into arguments against opinions based on nothing more than hearsay; etc.

I think people have been going down the wrong track when it comes to Trump threatening Comey. They're missing the obvious.

Trump spends his life surrounded by conspiracy theorists. They funnel every stupid idea posted on the internet 24/7 to keep him in a perpetually agitated, distracted state. This is a man who think global warming is a conspiracy created by China, that fluoride is a form of mind control, that jet contrails contain biological agents, that vaccines cause autism... it's really not much of a stretch for him to think people are recording his every move every single day.

Given this I find it highly unlikely that Trump was threatening Comey because Trump had recorded conversations. Instead he was threatening Comey because he thought Comey had recorded their conversations.

The threat wasn't about Trump going to the press with a recording. Its a threat against Comey going to the press with recordings of what Trump said.

And take more than they gave they did. I'm not disputing that. What I'm asking is, what better propaganda for the motherland if not showing off to the world its ability to not just prop up, but to make its satellites PROSPEROUS. What country wouldn't want to be in its good graces and under its wing? If the USSR had had the ability to do such a thing, the way America did, they probably would have. The exploitation they engaged in, as I see it, is in part A RESULT of their inability to compete with America. America didn't have any need for such behavior. So why would we engage in it? We stood nothing to gain from raping Western Europe. So why would we do that? You might say that, given how war-ravaged it was, there was nothing to take to begin with. But Eastern and Western Europe were equally war-torn. And yet the USSR still found something to pillage. The point is, we could have done the same, but we didn't need to. Helping Western Europe instead made us look infinitely better than the USSR on the world stage. I'm not saying that it was a purely cynical move. I am saying that it was only possible for us to do because we had the means, and that therefore it was a no-brainer. Any great power whose power was great enough to grant it the ability to do such an ostensibly benevolent thing would have done the same. We happened to be the only one that could.

You could be right. Particularly about this:
>The exploitation they engaged in, as I see it, is in part A RESULT of their inability to compete with America
That's likely. It would have been great for them to have prosperous nations along their border, but they probably couldn't have sustained them--let alone the USSR itself. It was certainly more cost effective to strip their remaining resources, though not as profitable.
and this:
>You might say that, given how war-ravaged it was, there was nothing to take to begin with
Don't be too quick to put anything past the United States. We've done a good deal more than our fair share if international dickery, but only when the profits from doing so significantly overcame the costs. The USSR was willing to accept a thinner profit margin for immediate gains; we wanted countries that would depend on trade with us and be able to give us loans in the future.

It does seem very much like both sides took advantage of the opportunities they had to the fullest capacity they were able.

Why isn't anyone thinking like this in our Middle Eastern wars? Both sides keep swapping incompetency and half-measures while the situation only gets worse and the staggering costs continue to skyrocket.

Look on the bright side. Now that Russia has openly started killing citizens of the middle east, now they're going to discover what actual terrorism looks like, instead of just Putin's false flags.

They might even discover that their own citizens become disillusioned with being a perpetual underclass and start joining in.
