‘We’re Going to War, Bro’

  If you know anything at all about the 82nd Airborne, you know that it’s an all-volunteer unit — an elite combat force. You don’t get there unless you want to fight America’s enemies, and so the troops view their deployment to the Middle East as an opportunity: FORT BRAGG, N.C. (Reuters) — For many […]

Breaking: Iran Attacks U.S. Forces in Iraq

Details are still very sketchy: Iran launched more than a dozen missiles at two Iraqi bases that hold US troops in what appears to be retaliation for the American airstrike that killed a top Iranian general last week, the Pentagon said Tuesday.

Why Do ‘Incels’ Want War With Iran?

David Futrelle is a “male feminist” who I’d ordinarily ignore, but he found something genuinely weird this time: Incels welcome possible war with Iran because “the more dead normies the better” Over on Incels.co, the regulars seem pretty stoked about what appears to be an impending US war with Iran.

Happy Fourth of July, You Fascists!

  The Democrats are now a party of paranoid conspiracy theorists: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said in a new interview that she believes the United States is heading in a fascist direction under President Trump. “Are we headed to fascism? Yes. I don’t think there’s a question,” Ocasio-Cortez told Yahoo News earlier this week after […]

Report: Trump Cancels Strike Against Iran

If true, this is good news: Officials said the president had initially approved attacks on a handful of Iranian targets, like radar and missile batteries.
