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

Some guy took a selfie with the hijacker:

I think this means Merkel is going to invade Poland in about 3 years, if I'm doing parallelism correctly.

 

(the Polish military in 2017 would probably win against the Germans)

Isn't there a Commissar Binkoff matchup showing the Krauts would win over the Poles, but only by Zerg rushing them?

The Polish Military in 2017 would almost certainly kick the ever living snot out of the Germans in TYOOL 2017.

It appears the Guardian is less than completely convinced by the recent disclosure of Osama Bin Laden's documents:

Quote

One 19-page document contains a senior militant’s assessment of the group’s relationship with Iran, which describes an offer by Iran to provide some unidentified “Saudi brothers” with “money, arms” and “training in Hezbollah camps in Lebanon, in exchange for striking American interests in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf”.


It is not known if the offer was accepted – if it was made at all – and the inclusion of the document will raise suspicion that one motive for the release of the new hoard was to place material that casts Iran in a bad light in the public domain.

Mike Pompeo, the Trump-appointed director of the CIA, has a reputation for an aggressively hawkish stance on Iran.
