Default Van attack in Barcelona; one confirmed dead so far

Van Attack In Barcelona – Balloon Juice

I wish I had something coherent or reassuring to say right now. Unfortunately, I don't.

Thank fuck we have your "president" to tell us what to do:

Trump responds to Barcelona attack by reviving debunked myth | World news | The Guardian

Quote:
“They were having terrorism problems just like we do,” Trump said. “And he caught 50 terrorists who did tremendous damage and killed many people. And he took the 50 terrorists, and he took 50 men, and he dipped 50 bullets in pig’s blood.”

He claimed that Pershing then “had his men load his rifles and he lined up the 50 people, and they shot 49 of those people. And the 50th person, he said, ‘You go back to your people and you tell them what happened.’”

In 2016, Trump claimed such mass executions ended the Islamic insurgency for a quarter-century. “Twenty-five years, there wasn’t a problem,” he said. In his new tweet he revised that estimated upward to 35 years.
Any way you could shut this cretin up for a while? Fucking hell.

So the Philippine war has now been re-branded as islamic insurgency. By the man who is terribly worried about remembering history (through statues) so that we may learn from the past.

Most of us Americans want an answer just as much as you Europeans do. If you figure out a solution, please do let us know.

Hmmm...I'll have to dig out my copy of War Is A Racket! and see what Smedley has to say about his Philippines experience.

Well ... this one's on you guys, I'm afraid :(. I can only repeat what I said last year: the rest of the world should have a say in what moron you guys decide to send to the WH. This isn't acceptable. Globally.

I must protest that, by a nearly three million-vote margin, we pretty clearly indicated that we didn’t want him in office, either. And unfortunately, there aren’t many mechanisms for removing a clearly unqualified politician from office in this country. The existing ones depend upon the other branches of government acting in good faith, which has clearly not occurred in quite some time.
