Here are the reasons.   1) It might make Americans sympathetic to Philippines President Duterte. That's because Duterte = Trump > Hitler.   2) Because we have our own news story

Because sometimes you have to act even though you know this is what your adversary wants. This has been a lose-lose situation for Israel from the very beginning. There was no possible way to turn

Some guy took a selfie with the hijacker:

Sheriff Joe is a jackass but the next time a furry con visits town will be hilarious.

The perp is from Seattle, huh? About ten years ago there was a story about some Seattle bestiality fans who'd head out to Enumclaw (a small town an hour south of Seattle) to molest the livestock. Except this case one of the guys got his colon ruptured by a stallion and his friends left him to die at the front door of an emergency room.

Bestiality was outlawed in this state after this although not without controversy.

And it's being widely reported that the EgyptAir flight was brought down by an "explosion".

Speculation on my part but a suicide bomber in the lavatory would be a plausible explanation.

But we'll see.

Several months ago Egypt asked us to resume flights, because "now they are safe".

They even made a sympathetic film about this particular incident.

Hey, it went down after taking off from France, not Egypt.

Dang frenchies 

 

However I wouldn't be too surprised if some extreme anti-Sisi faction bombed the plane to hurt Egypt's economy and hope to get Sisi out of power. This could also help explain why no one has taken credit for it. 

 

Or it was just an accident, but that isn't nearly as interesting.

Yeah, that's also likely. An attempt to further mess up tourism and relations with other countries.

   I know, but there is plenty of reasons to us to not resume those, as Egypt is slowly swallowed into this growing Middle East mess. Saudis are going deep into Egypt, ISIS is paying much more attention to us, including their branch in Egypt. 

 

   If this plane was taken down deliberately, the most likely reasons could have been found deep in Egypt politics, and not French, because French elites sold their asses long time ago.

Putin vs Kudrin is becoming more obvious

 

   At a meeting of the Presidium of the Economic Council last week, experts with different views - from the chairman of the Center for Strategic Research (CSR), Alexei Kudrin to business ombudsman Boris Titov - tried to persuade the president to their side in a dispute about stimulating the economy.  

 

 

Russia lagged behind technologically,  said Kudrin, the country should, even on the sidelines, integrate into international production chains. And it needs to "reduce geopolitical tensions", he insisted.

Up to 60 dead when a truck drives into a Bastille Day crowd in Nice France. Reports of gunfire, and the driver being killed.

IT'S 1941 ALL OVER AGAIN

 

https://www.yahoo.com/news/leaked-proposal-us-offering-russia-military-pact-syria-075608701.html

 


The proposed U.S.-Russian "Joint Implementation Group" would be based near Amman, Jordan. At its most basic level, the former Cold War foes would share intelligence and targeting information. They "should coordinate procedures to permit integrated operations" if the U.S. and Russia decide such operations are in their interests, the leaked document said.
