Americans fail to condemn terrorist attacks

While the world reels from another attack in London, it overlooks attacks elsewhere. Pundits on western TV, who are unknowingly collaborating with Islamic State forces, are asking where “the good Muslims” are, who they feel should be condemning the attack in London. There is no question about the location of the “good Americans” who should be condemning airstrikes on civilian targets in Syria.

Yesterday, the US-led coalition was blamed for an airstrike on a school sheltering 50 refugee families. 33 people have been confirmed killed, and an untold number are still missing and suspected to be in the rubble. These victims were comprised of men, women, and children who were attempting to stay out of the fight. They were noncombatants by any definition of the word.

12 Stories you missed while following the ‘hack’ that never was

The country has its sights firmly placed on the spectacle occurring over the hack/leak of documents that may or may not have influenced the election. It’s irrelevant. The people of the United States cannot grant the Central Intelligence Agency (or any intelligence agency) the power to cast doubt on the results of elections via unconfirmed, unsourced, and politically biased findings. At the end of the day, the precedent set by allowing a secret agency to veto election results is the death of democracy.

So what did you miss while this was occupying the national narrative? Lots. Troops are deploying to Afghanistan, the Boko Haram is back in the headlines, a new pipeline fight, and much more.
