A Drone Strike Blows Up Internet…And A General
First of all after the US killed an Iranian General with a drone strike, social media went nuts. In addition all the other media went nuts. I think it’s time we sorted it all out in War-AntiWar-Con-Job-Bob Davis Podcast 891.
War-Anti-War Con Job
Things Could Go Either Way
Real News Too Confusing and Complicated
Unfortunately no one was thinking about foreign policy when they voted in 2016. Moreover most Americans consider foreign affairs to be too confusing and difficult to think about.
Real World Too Complicated?
Above all when it comes to the US role in the rest of the world every action has a reaction. The hard part is managing reactions going forward.
You Want A Democracy? Grow Up!
Most noteworthy is the question of exactly what Americans want when it comes to foreign dealings. Sorry but it’s not as easy as a meme or a four line capital letters post on social media. More on that in War-AntiWar-Con-Job-Bob Davis Podcast 891.
Shouting Matches Are Not News
Even more these things aren’t solved with split screen debates on television where guests are encouraged to get into shouting matches. Meanwhile we show pictures of planes and ships.
Explaining The Issue
Finally it’s time to attempt to explain the contours of this story. In contrast to the magpies on the line, I am not going to tell listeners and subscribers what to think or what to do. I will not do your homework for you.
