We have several dozen special forces troops on the ground in Syria, where we were assured that we would never have boots on the ground. We are improving rural Syrian airstrips so that they can handle C-130s delivering things. Such as more troops.
We have announced that we just might put troops into Libya, where we already have troops that we do not admit are there. Hillary Clinton still maintains that Libya represents a successful use of "smart power." Smart, as in we totally fucked up the country and let Daesh invade without putting U.S. boots on the ground. Onward to phase two.
After the Bataclan attacks, France instituted emergency measures that allow police to raid, search, seize, and arrest without a search warrant. As you might expect, the police are making generous use of the privilege. Critics say they're mostly snatching up drug suspects and the like, not terrorists. So you're sitting there in your underwear, watching French-dubbed Dukes of Hazzard, and the gendarmes stroll through the front door.... Zut alors!
McDonald's new "Keep Calm, Caesar On," salad with kale, chicken, and croutons has more calories, fat, and sodium than a Double Big Mac. Honest.
