When we oversaw Japan and post-NAZI Germany at the end of WW II, did we “look the other way” (under orders) from atrocities committed by those regimes, as to “respect their culture”? (To our everlasting shame, we DID let some off the hook in both countries). Do we not learn? Ever?
Victimizing children for one’s sexual pathologies is absolutely unacceptable, “tradition/culture” be damned.

Gee, how soon can I get transferred to that world-center of progressive utopia?

That is crazy! One question though – that guy flies without any eye protection? What happens if so much as a bug gets in his eye? As a former motorcycle rider, I can’t help but wonder.

I was wondering how that was going to work as well – “cloud-based”. Perhaps it can update when ya get back to a service area, but I don’t think there are typically a lot of 4G towers in wilderness areas?
its getting there, actually its more economical to do cell than wire phone in remote areas. but the gov will still leave the tax on fewer wired phones

If one wanted a picture of affirmative-action gone bad, a pic of this complete fool would do a fine job. I mean, this is a SPECIAL kinda stupid here.

Sucked out the brain fluid, apparently. Geezus.

This is a meeting of equals. Robby Gordon is also a moron.

Wait, I know many in the Middle East hate dogs (tells me all I need to know right there), but I thought they kept cockroaches at pets. (Yes, I realize Turkey isn’t technically in the M/E – work with me here….:).

“So what happened to the original Baltic state who started the conflict?”
(Psst – I think you meant “Balkan”).
Russia, Austria-Hungary, and Ottoman Turkey were also big players in WW I.
I can’t recommend Dan Carlin’s “Hardcore History – Road to Armageddon” podcasts on WW I enough. Fascinating and compelling.
And I did want to say Balkan. Thank you for correcting me. The Serbian assassin was a member of a secretive group known as the Black hand.
Remember it's not my job to be always at least 85% correct. I try to get folks to think rather than them to continue consuming more one liner jabs at leaders.
You Sir are among the 1% who list a reference book of historical value instead of goading folks into more open sourced videos which is the same as watching a movie in high school history class[sleeping] instead of doing the work[reading] to commit to memory.
And yes I listed the 'big players' as being; America, France Germany, and woefully omitted the UK. All of whom bore the brunt of the combat deaths in brutal trench warfare.
The countries you listed and their ideology are curiously tied to our current situation again.

Deaths in single days in WW I were also staggering. French lost 19,000 on the first day of Verdun alone, as I recall. Brits lost that and more on the first day at The Somme River. Passchendaele was also complete slaughter on day 1.
We also supplied the Soviets with a lot of materiel in that time.

“War is cruelty. There is no use trying to reform it. The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over.”

He was right then, and he’s still right today.

His purge of the entire military leadership in the 30s contributed to this debacle as well. For my $$, he’s the worst of the worst, even worse than Hitler and Mao.

I’m guessing the coworker is pro-”choice” as well.
Okay, not that that was a hard guess – just sayin’.
 May 31, 2015 at 5:50pm
Couldn’t agree more, H/F. Absolutely compelling listening. I had no idea of the slaughter of WW I. I’ve even let up on the French a bit, given what they suffered in the war that didn’t even need to happen.

That was an unbelievable crash, and then to see him walk away?! I’d guess that 10 years prior, he’d have been dead.

While I see some merit to their fame bringing some attention to this long-overlooked atrocity, I’d personally prefer to go the rest of my life without having to endure one more word about them after today. Only this bimbo could sully such a solemn site.

I’d say the Pope has the responsibility to recognize genocide. Politicians make it political, as to not hurt the feelings of the tender Turks.

I believe Glenn has an upcoming show on April 24th, which is regarded as the 100th anniversary of this slaughter of Christian Armenians, Greeks, and Assyrians. I’m looking forward to it, in hopes it increases awareness. Perhaps at this solemn time, more governments will have the courage, integrity, and decency to finally recognize this holocaust. Given that Erdogan is Fubarack’s favorite ******, don’t look for him to do what he insisted W do back in the 2000s.
Crucifixions, bashing the skulls of babies onto boulders in front of their mothers, pandemic rape, and forcing victims into caves, then burning or asphyxiating them with fire and smoke. Sound familiar to what ISIS does today?

One question though – will Kate McKinnon who portrays Hillary have to get cankle-implants, for the sake of authenticity?
