Protests are apparently going to be held in the UK on the 31st.

I'm wavering on whether to attend. I'm pretty sure this is still bullshit to grab votes and show them listening to the people by not taking action.... which is what the strategic goal seems to be.

That said, I've been reconsidering my stance on protests and going would probably be useful in that regard.

Anyone else in the UK/elsewhere hearing similar things?

The 31st as well, in Portland. I'll be in Oklahoma, though, and I'm pretty damned sure I'm not of the ballz to try my luck at demonstrating there.

Also, from the "so fucking true, it's funny" file:

Posts calling for an end to the antagonism begin to drown out the antagonistic posts, resulting in increasingly antagonistic posts calling for an end to the posts calling for an end to the antagonism. Fortunately, many of those engaged in the more contentious arguments have already stated that they do no not plan on attending the event itself.

"It was Prince Bandar’s intelligence agency that first alerted Western allies to the alleged use of sarin gas by the Syrian regime in February." "The CIA is believed to have been working with Prince Bandar directly since last year in training rebels at base in Jordan close to the Syrian border. The Saudis are "indispensable partners on Syria" and have considerable influence on American thinking, a senior US official told The Wall Street Journal yesterday. He added: "No one wants to do anything alone"."

Well, shit.

As an exercise in highlighting the structure of the system, it's superb.

It's just, you know, the death. And propagation of shittery. All roads and options that seem likely to be adopted lead to bad times. Attempts to take other options will probably be thwarted.

Nobody said it was a healthy laugh.

You know, the reality we're living in is written more poorly than a Tom Clancy novel.
