What to read this weekend: recommendations from the bunker

What we're reading: Canberra's forgotten dreams, ... more like the "alt-wrong", how Trump solved CNN's problems, Syria's torture wards, Trump is not Nixon, law and order in the Philippines, and the plight of pregnant women in Yemen.

    Yes what has happened in Syria is fucking bad, words don’t / cant describe the atrocity. Meanwhile the coalition of the willing continues bombing, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan, and increase bombing in Syria with lots of civilians, (yes women and children too) dying, …not much in the news about that however. Coalition hypocrites comes to mind with the convenient but justified outrage displayed. More bombing required, more civilians will die, does the coalition of the willing care, not really, the merchants of death do, they clean up big time, whoopee! Pilots bombing are revered as heroes, some would say cowards, but they’re only doing what they’re told. A ever compliant media does not question coalition of the willing about the thousands of civilians that have died since the start of the wars in the Middle East. The mighty U.S. is shitting itself lest the bad guys from the middle east come to get them in the U.S. and so the killing continues unabated.
