Lots of tension. Lots of contested Islands. Lots of provocative actions. Lots of bluster. A day don't go by without some country threatening another. Just once I would like to see the U.S state equivalently to North Korea or Iran that an attack on the U.S. will be the last thing they ever did. See the video of New York burning put out by North Korea? We just keep maintaining the "high road" and they get braver and braver.

So? It's merchandising.

Sometimes a leader like Kim or Putin/Medvedev (Siamese presidents) needs to take control of the news cycle so as to highlight something they're doing or to hide it. Look at the video Iran is shopping around of video they say they got from the drone. That's Khamenei punctuating his refusal of direct nuclear talks with the US at what he calls the point of a gun.

Headlines can be deceptive and others, well:

http://www.mercurynews.com/education/ci_22502...

"You don't have to spend much time in Vietnam before you notice something unusual. You hear no birds singing, see no squirrels scrambling up trees or rats scurrying among the garbage. No dogs out for a walk."
"In fact, you see almost no wild or domesticated animals at all. Where'd they all go? You might be surprised to know: Most have been eaten.

I bet you didn’t realize how much you were helping the wildlife over there by eliminating diners.

You know I loves me some critters but nobody ever told me to do it for mom, apple pie and the rodents in the alley. That first cruise I bet I got as many squirrels as VC.

Too funny...if we jailed everybody who criticized the government, Uzi would be serving a death sentence (in absentia).

Ahmad could receive the same sentence right now after posting that Morsi should have slapped Abbas' fat flabby face after the confusion of who he was actually kissing. Good thing Ahmad's here enjoying our sweet liberties and anonymity. I mean Nablus is in the West Bank. Even his family would have felt reprisals for what their boy frequently says about their revered leader.

And one more thing, over here people lose their jobs if they criticize our glorious leader on Facebook and Twitter, but they stay out of serious trouble, unless they joke about terminating his term with extreme prejudice. First Amendment be damned.

It's not too safe in Cairo for Persians either.

Perhaps the trend will turn around...Abu Islam's comments were not well received in the Twitter universe.

“When will you Egyptians kill Abu Islam? We do not need more [idiots.]”

Twitter is the great equalizer of the Arab world.

Thanks, poor arab women. Shit soil the Pal said that muslim women are respected by their men and i-slime. Proof, this is respect for them, I mean its much much better than stoning to death or honor killing your own daughter or wife. Yes, i-slime is good for muslim women said the retarded muslim man.

Oh, I'm sure we all got it. I, for one, don't respond to immature childish posts meant to attract someone with sub-standard intellect. Well, you hooked one. I guess I have to lower my standards. 1 for you and 5 for me. I'm just here as a straight man for your comedic success. I'm telling you, that "Bush" reference is a turn on for Southern Wimmins without one. No fair.
