Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Crying on the TV

Getting owned by Trump:

"The infestation of bedbugs at The New York Times office" @OANN  was perhaps brought in by lightweight journalist Bret Stephens, a Conservative who does anything that his bosses at the paper tell him to do! He is now quitting Twitter after being called a "bedbug." Tough guy!

I bit too much honor for Bret to be noticed by the Boss himself!

Bret will find another gutter to hide 😊

Murdoch's WSJ Editorial Board Going Bats**t

Bret Stephens, WSJ/Murdoch Are Inseparable


If there is still some escapism to the true colors of neoconphile Bret Stephens [RightWeb], this presentation must convert all doubters ...

    Bret Stephens: The next US president may not be pro-Israel | JPost - Feb. 11, 2016 |

    Wall Street Journal's Bret Stephens talks on 9/5/12 about the threat of Iran organized into "moral categories" of self deception, deception, clarity, friendship and courage. He's one the most brilliant foreign policy minds of our time. It's one thing to read his extraordinary columns but even more powerful to hear him speak about the Iranian nuclear program and the threat it means to the world.

when did world war 2 start?

In Europe, if we say that the annexation of austria was consensual, then it ws on 1st October 1938 if you lived in Czechoslovakia, cos that was when the Germans invaded.

Britain and France declared war on 3rd September 1939, 2 days after Germany invaded Poland.

Germany declares war on USSR on 22nd June 1941

Germany declared war on the USA on Dec 7th 1941.

As for the war in the Pacific, well, Japan invaded china in 1937.

So, depends on your perspective really.

In American popular opinion, 7 December 1941. Nothing happened before that.

I glanced at that (different source). Nominated NY Yella Cake columnist and all "followers" for a 2020 Fredo Award.

I remember reading Die Zeit 10ish years ago until I couldn't stomache the incredible insincere Atlanticism any more.

Along with their ignorance of America. I was already reading them less and less when I stopped completely in disgust, when they made the claim that Al Gore claimed to have invented the internet, long after this had been exposed as a lie.

For me it was an article that praised the Greens for being the only ones actually debating the morality and merrits of the Afghan war. (As long as the answer isn't "no" of course.)

It is a good fit however:

Urteil des Bundesgerichtshofs: ,,Die Zeit" verliert gegen ZDF-Satire - taz.de

Das Landgericht Hamburg kam beim Nachzählen auf sieben Organisationen, erklärte den Unterschied aber für irrelevant. Schließlich gehe es hier um eine Satire-Sendung. Das Oberlandesgericht (OLG) Hamburg gab im September 2015 dagegen Joffe Recht. Bei etwas strengerer Auslegung seien es nämlich nur sechs transatlantische Organisationen, mit denen Joffe verbandelt sei. Wenn es aber um nur sechs statt acht Organisationen gehe, dann sei die ,,verfälschende Abweichung" so groß, dass sie ,,geeignet wäre, den sozialen Geltungsanspruch des Klägers zu beeinträchtigen."

When the satire show die Anstalt showed a picture that had die Zeit publisher Joffe as a member of eight transatlantic lobby organisations he sued them (the number is actually six though the first court of law counted seven).

I had completely forgotten that Bittner, the guy who triumphantly announces the Setphens gig, also was part case. He also lost.
