Either that, or RUN+BLK, DN DN FWD UP

Since I'm in a supremely shitty mood - worse than usual - I'm going to make a concerted effort - more than normal - to dredge up nothing but bad news. That is, until I just punt on everything for the day. Doing what I can to spread the joy. Happy Friday! Fuck everything.

Oh look, bad news from Iraq. That's just fan-fucking-tastic, and should do wonders to help our already shitty image over there. Is this just an isolated number of incidents? Probably. But do you think people are going to see it that way or give a shit even if they do? Hell no. We can't win over hearts and minds if we're too busy torturing and abusing said hearts and minds. It doesn't matter if it's "regrettable" or in small numbers; any incident is one too many. Yeah, yeah, yeah, no one ever said it was going to be easy, BUT MAYBE THAT'S WHY WE SHOULDN'T HAVE GOTTEN INVOLVED IN THIS FUCKING BULLSHIT IN THE FIRST PLACE.

I also liked CNN's article on the subject. Kimmitt said he has met with representatives of Iraq's newspapers to discuss how to report the story. He met with them to discuss how to report it? What the fuck is that bullshit? We're shutting down papers who don't like us, telling, ERR, discussing with the others how to report our fuck-ups... Yeah, just fucking great.

Seriously, I wish I could do Smoke's fatality - the stupidest fatality ever - where he just unloads a bunch of bombs and blows up the world. RUN+BLK, UP UP FWD DWN.
