The Pentagon's Bottomless Money Pit - Rolling Stone
Meanwhile, the Air Force, which has a $156 billion annual budget, still doesn't always use serial numbers. It has no idea how much of almost anything it has at any given time. Nuclear weapons are the exception, and it started electronically tagging those only after two extraordinary mistakes, in 2006 and 2007. In the first, the Air Force accidentally loaded six nuclear weapons in a B-52 and flew them across the country, unbeknownst to the crew. In the other, the services sent nuclear nose cones by mistake to Taiwan, which had asked for helicopter batteries.

Bambi? But the story is by Felix Salten, who also wrote Josephine Mutzenbacher, a pornographic novel about a 13-year old prostitute. In these #MeToo days should we even be watching the movie, let alone ordering other people to do so?

Trump: Time to recognise Golan Heights as Israeli territory
"Israel annexed the Golan in 1981 in a move not recognised internationally."
Winning (without bogus people's votes)
"'The Golan is not disputed. It is in the hands of Israel and will always remain in the hands of Israel,' Graham said from a cliff [!] overlooking Syria, where Syrian flags could be seen fluttering in the distance on buildings damaged in the country's civil war. 'My goal is to try to explain this to the administration,' he said."

This is a fine example of the good kind of territorial annex: "not now actually possessed by any Christian Prince or People." Finders, Keepers! 9/10 The Law! moral authority.
