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?

      I've been particularly interested in Anti-Feminists lately and watched a thought provoking profile piece by VICE on the women activists within then Men's Rights Movement. Broadly speaking the Men's  Rights Movement (MRM) is a countermovement to Feminism. Mens Rights activists see men as an oppressed group and believe that society has been 'feminized' by the Feminist movement.  (1)  Bish please, if you have the time to pose for a picture with a sign about how you're 'against...

      A testament to his expertise at being bad-ass, "Easy Rider" is Action Bronson's latest gold. Produced by Party Supplies and directed by Tom Gould, the video tracks Bronson trippin' on acid through the desert.   So, let's review the level to which he is bad ass. He's chased by the po' on a Harley. He fights a group of truckers on acid. He rocks out like Slayer on a guitar, sunset fading in the distance. Oh, and did I mention he's on acid the whole time?   I heard your bitch...

      You may have thought to yourself many time already "wow I shouldn't have done that" or "I'm gonna regret that in the morning", but just remember, you will never be able to fuck up as bad as Tucker Blandford did with his ex fiance. We can already celebrate to that fact. British Student Alex Lanchester was studying for one year over seas in Connecticut when she met Tucker Blandford. We all know what usually happens on an exchange.... lots of partying, not much studying, and possibly...
      Ready for fall: The War on Drugs release video for "Under the Pressure"

      Lost in the Dream is far and away my favourite album of 2014 so far and I don't even listen to music that utilises guitars and real drum kits regularly, so I was extremely stoked that The War on Drugs have released a perfectly-suited Houman-directed video for "Under the Pressure", one of the very best tracks on the record.  Better-than-Instagram filters and depressing-yet-familiar suburbs give the video a hazy, late-autumn tint, which suits the mood of a song that initially...

       Released just this past Friday on Sony's electronic sister label, Ultra Music, Swedish-born superstar David Vrong strikes back with a brand new track that will have listeners dancing on their toes. Composed alongside a Belgian female vocalist known as Amaëlle, "Breaking Out" has an amazing fusion of style, that blends heavy electro synths with the structural patterns of deep house. Vrong has to be one of the hottest upcoming producers of 2014, and I guarantee you that you'll see...

      The "L" in LA must stand for longevity. Flying Lotus has been one of the leading pioneers in the LA beat scene since the release of his cult-classic debut 1983 and isn't showing signs of slowing down.  Since the enigmatic beatmaker has had the tendency to evolve with every passing record groove, it's sometimes hard to pinpoint just what makes Fly Lo so special. Somewhere in between the buzzy sine synths, hypnotic percussion and bargain-bin vinyl crackle of his early cuts lies a...
