THE ABSURD TIMES

BERNIE OR BUST, EMPORER ERDOGAN

Illustration is self-explanatory. The seven are Hillary’s and the six are Bernie’s representatives on the pre-convention committee. Arguments in favor of Clinton only hold credibility to the extent that she is not Donald Trump.

There is something to this, however. In 1964, there was a choice between Barry Goldwater and Lyndon Johnson. Most felt at the time that they were voting for the peace candidate, but Johnson was responsible for the deaths of thousands of young Americans, perhaps hundreds of thousands of civilians in Southeast Asia. However, it is highly unlikely that the Republican would have allowed the civil rights bill, the voting bill, and Medicare while Johnson accomplished these things to an extent.

Still, the illustration explains quite clearly what the problem is with Hillary. Also, note that all Republican attacks on her have nothing to do with her war mongering.

TURKEY

Erdogan sold out to Israel just before the attacks by ISIS at the airport. Apologists point out that such an attack could not be planed so quickly. However, they overlook the fact that many attacks have been planned all over (no, I don’t know where), and the participants are simply waiting for an excuse.

Here is some detail on the situation:

TOPICS

Funerals have begun in Turkey for some of the 42 people killed in a triple suicide bombing Tuesday targeting Turkey’s main airport in Istanbul. The attack also left 239 others injured. Authorities said three attackers arrived at the airport’s international terminal by taxi and blew themselves up after opening fire. The airport is the 11th busiest in the world. No group claimed responsibility for the attack, but Turkey’s prime minister said the initial probe pointed to the self-proclaimed Islamic State, or Daesh. A senior Turkish official told the Associated Press the three suicide attackers were nationals of Russia, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. Earlier today, Turkish police raided 16 locations in Istanbul and detained 13 people on suspicion of involvement in the attack. Turkey has seen an uptick in bombings since last year, when the United States began using Turkey’s Incirlik Air Base to carry out bombing raids in Syria and Iraq targeting ISIS strongholds. We speak to Koray Çaliskan, associate professor of political science at Bogaziçi University in Istanbul.
