Default War, terrorism, and social media

I don't know how true this is, but I do know a lot of people have reported seeing stuff, and X does indeed have no functional ability to handle things right now, even apart from it being unclear whether they want to.

I am not providing my email to read that article but I imagine, which is all I can do from pseudo safe cozy home, that the reality of mutilated babies and children and raped dead women is a pretty tough thing for the human eye to behold. You know in real life.
