WW3: Because Killing Civilians Is Only Okay When Obama Does It

  • With what could be the prelude to World War 3, Obama has effectively announced confirmation of his plans to move foreward with military action in Syria after the recent alleged chemical weapons attack that left thousands of innocent civilians dead. The decision prompted the representatives from both China and Russia to walk out on the UN meeting earlier today.

    Someone somewhere seems to have reached the conclusion that it was, in fact, al-Assad's government that launched the attack on the people of Damascus rather than desperate measures taken by the rebels (the FSA have pulled a series of lesser shots in the past), knowing that Obama stated that the "red line" would be when chemical weapons were used, in order to prompt international intervention starting with an expected Kosovo-like airstrike campaign. Because why not needlessly kill thousands of your civilians by way of an internationally denounced method when you're already winning your war? Sounds like a great idea! Not a blatantly stupid move at all.

    We all remember what happened the last time the POTUS decided to go ahead with military intervention based on a hunch back in 2003.

    It's ironic that Obama & co. would be so eager to launch another military invasion into the Middle East considering he's the one who finally brought the ridiculous move into Iraq by the Bush administration to a long-awaited close, but here we are. Yet again.

    It's no question that something needs to be done about obscene death and destruction inflicted by both the SAA and FSA, but when Britain is seeking authorization from the UN to use military force before the investigation of the incident is even finished, and when your major international allies are advising against it, and when 70% of your population is opposed to the idea -multiply that by the amount of love trigger-happy Obama has for killing civilians with drone strikes - you come out looking pretty bewildered at this sudden decision 27 months and 100,000 deaths into it.

    Will this be a repeat of the Iraq War, or are we really in for another World War like the media expectedly keeps hinting at?

       Walmart, the world's largest retailer and the figurative ass hole of consumerism, gets hit with its share of controversy on a regular basis. A few years ago, one of their security guards was trampled to death by a horde of Black Friday shoppers bloodthirsty for discount Ipads, lawn chairs, and underwear. They've since spent almost half a million dollars to avoid paying a small fine. Essentially, that bouncing yellow smiley face might be the face of corporate satan.  In...

      On July 9th 2013, I departed on an adventure like I have never done before. One where I decided to leave my home, Montreal, and to live across the world in the beautiful land that is Sydney, Australia, for an entire year to study on an exchange program at the University of New South Wales. A country that everybody craves to see, a country that everybody could live there, and a country that I wish I never left. Australia is a magnificent country for so many reasons, it is truly hard to pin every...
      Children and Civilians suffer as truce talks fail

      After days of negotiations and meetings on the Jewish sabbath, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected a proposal put forth by John Kerry for a truce in Gaza to last just one week; instead, a 12-hour truce had been accepted between the two sides and the latest news reports that a 24-hour extension of that truce has been rejected.  Kerry proposed the original weeklong truce to give time for further long-term negotiations between Israel and Hamas. Acceptance of the weeklong truce...

      So I’m a noob/layman in terms of Hip-Hop. I like myself some smooth rhymes and I’m a downright fanatic for RnB, but when it comes to what actually defines the genre of Hip-Hop… I’m clueless. Sixteen years in the making and five years into my residence in Montreal, I’m kicking myself for only now taking a jab at the MEG (aka. Montreal Electronic Groove) Festival. Only, one year too late, given that Breakbot brought the MEG BOAT (yes, I said BOAT) down for their 15th year. No matter, given the...

       Qohen Leth is a man who cuts himself out of society, thinking communication and human interaction is a pointless waste of time. He isn’t necessarily unsocial, rather a recluse; hidden away in an abandoned burned down chapel, he bought several years earlier. When he does talk about himself, it’s always as a collective, stating “we are dying” or “we fear nothing most of all”. His life, according to him, is meaningless and will amount to nothing. The only thing holding him together is the...

      Jack et la Mecanique du Coeur

      Opening up in a Victorian realm of white and blue, in an unwelcoming frosty landscape where many have risked and lost their lives, we witness the birth of an average boy with a mechanical heart, one built with gears like a clock. His name is Jack, the protagonist of Jack et la Mécanique du Coeur, a beautiful French film drenched in CGI and based on a novel and a song by the same name. The mastermind behind the animated piece's history is co-director Mathias Malzieu, who is also the...
