I agree, but I wonder how you all feel in the context of the current middle east situation.
I love you.

Syria intervention plan fueled by oil interests, not chemical weapon concern
Massacres of civilians are being exploited for narrow geopolitical competition to control Mideast oil, gas pipelines

Here's my guess:

a) Putin is great
b) Assad is Putin's mate, so he's okay
c) Obama was a warlord
d) The moon landings never happened
e) Trump is misunderstood
f) Hillary is a cunt
g) d is fact, because g is as well.

How did I do?

Except for a bad parody of my views, which is more of what Davey, Copehead and co. seem to have said, it is more of the same non-expression of views of what is happening in the middle east. If you agree with what the mainstream media have said about the situation then say so. As for you, DD, except for a talent of trolling me, you too have said nothing.
I love you.

I don't troll you. I just find your need to put up 10 threads over almost the exact same subject a touch tiring Jimbo.

I seriously doubt even you at your most myopic could suggest I haven't previously made my opinions on Clinton, Obama, Putin and Trump crystal clear.

Just trawl your own threads, it's all there.

I was rather hoping this was a "who does the best trip hop?" poll.

Imagine my disappointment.

Well, it's Putin, of course, a tyrant in waiting.

But history keeps on repeating itself: I'm just going to enjoy the music while I can.

I've got better things to ponder on. Like the Sgt. Pepper remix.

Poorly. I was hoping for some kind of over-arching meta-theory that would also include the assassination of JFK, the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa, the death of Diana and GCHQ.

You disappoint me Peter, you really do.

How dare you. That nice Mr. Putin is a lovely chap, all warm, fluffy, big-hearted and totally blameless.
Your problem is that you swallow too much Western propaganda, Try RT for an unbiased & balanced view.
