A few days after Holocaust Memorial Day? Really?

On Eurogamer - of all places - there was recently this article: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2017-01-28-punching-nazis
To properly expose the real fascists - which do exist - it is useful...

The self-styled 'anti-fascists' of the far-left now seem bolstered by the much larger group of people of the political center-left who are merely demonstrating against what they consider the excesses...

With record unpopularity ratings for the socialist president, a new socialist candidate that is seen as representing the more radical wing of the party, and the Republican candidate already embroiled...

'Doing anything about it' is NATOs job, and on that a lot of European countries have been asleep at the wheel.
What else does the EU do? Sanctions, of course! The EU is very proud of its unity in...

Thanks; it seems the report I read this morning incorrectly summarized the passages by cutting out some crucial parts.

If you look at the result of the FN in regional elections, you'll see that where they come out on top in the first round they often lose in the second because socialists will back the remaining...

The president's order allows 'visas or other immigration benefits' to be issued still. Just on a case-by-case basis. It also allows people to enter the US 'as refugees', for example when a person 'is...

Thanks, not a surprising number.
Isn't that to be expected? To some, Obama was instantly a communist because that's the fancy word for Bad Lefty. Never mind his actual policies. To others,...

Maybe, but from a political point of view, if you're going to do a review of procedures you might as well do it in a way that seems to deliver on an important campaign promise.
On the other hand,...
Thanks for the link.
It echoes some of the points made by Robert Fisk in December, in an article for The Independent.

I don't disagree. But given the reaction by some, highlighting the temporary character of the ban seems important. During the campaigns Trump specifically said he wanted a ban 'until our country’s...

I wouldn't be surprised if that played a part, but refraining from criticism of Saudi Arabia in all but the most carefully worded statements is not unique to Trump. It's a habit of a lot of political...

The best thing about it is that the world's great exporter of radical Islamic ideology and the home of most of the 9/11 hijackers isn't on the list.
That of course being Saudi Arabia, the One Who...
The theme of the page seems to be landscapes, and lasers. A great combination!
And I've probably noted this before, but why don't more developers tap into that fantastic Nordic feel that Skyrim...

There is indeed a difference between these various forms of torture. What is not different is what they are: torture.
The Americans also did far more than merely drowning their victims. They...

While 'these people' are certainly more diverse than the adjectives you used, it is in some sense good that the views of the American people are represented in the White House. At least on this...

If you look at polls from before Trump announced his run, you'll find that Americans supported torture all along.
This is what the country is, and Trump is a better reflection of their wishes on...

It's not really a case of shouldn't - it isn't. It never was under Bush either. Nobody outside of the most extreme partisans actually believes the 'enhanced interrogation' nonsense. What they did is...

There are over half a billion people in Europe.
Even if you limit it to just Germany, you're talking 80 million people, which includes millions of non-Germans.
Inbreeding is not even close to...

With regards to migrants from the Middle-East; Japan is famous for being extremely selective when it comes to recognizing people as actual refugees and they seem to do just fine.
You can have...

Or maybe it's not all that bad to listen to what the administration has to say:
Some website being updated = we're fucked?
If that's how low the bar for panic is placed...

Why would it be that obvious what the results might be? Alternatively, walking back Trump's support for Israel drags his critics into the sphere of the 'appeasers' who would sacrifice Israel's...

This is a fantastic image. That must have been quite the device.
I'm sure he does, but projection is very common so I'm not sure Trump is very unusual in this.
It wasn't that long ago that...

There was no war on Syria's government when Bush left office. Under Obama's presidency, the United States openly trained and equipped Syrian rebels whose aim was the overthrow of the government, and...
