There is massive faux outrage over the video and manifesto being shared online. Meanwhile, Hitler's Mein Kampf is being sold on Amazon.com, while videos of jets crashing into the twin towers are copiously available on YouTube. Videos of people jumping and falling from the burning buildings can be found in seconds on YouTube.

Forced to Work or Forced to Pay Over and Over Again Until Perpetuity?
Published: Friday, 08 March 2019 15:28
While the major news media hastily assessed the repercussions of last week’s sudden conclusion of the second Trump-Kim Summit in Hanoi, Vietnam, what has been transpiring for the past several months at the highest court in South Korea may also deserve much attention and commentary.

By Marshall Wordsworth
The high-profile arrests of Huawei's CFO and Nissan's Chairman in the past several months, while they have made spectacular news headlines, the information presented to the general public by the media including the reasons for their apprehension barely scratches the surface of a much larger, more complex geopolitical ramifications that cannot be ignored.

911, what is your emergency?
Countless journalists and others have dedicated substantial portions of the recent two years screaming that President Trump would start a war.
All this time later -- we were all supposed to be dead by now -- Trump has utterly failed at starting a war beyond Twitter.
But now, the latest great hope for Trump war rests on the brutal murder of a Saudi citizen by Saudi citizens almost certainly ordered by King Tut himself, probably while sitting in a gold jacuzzi with Stoney Daniels or whatever her name is.

Many words flying around: "Why doesn't Trump do something!?" (Always the interrobang on this one.)
Firstly, let's talk about precedence and reality. The world is filled with savagery. Pick any compass heading and there will be savagery. Often under our own feet.
Why doesn't Trump turn the seas into fresh water to solve the water crisis!? Why doesn't Merkel do this? Putin? That guy Xi?
Well, back to precedence.

Finally, A Serious Scholarly Work on Comfort Women Translated into English
By Marshall Wordsworth
Professor Ikuhiko Hata, a premier authority on modern Japanese history, has finally managed to make available his highly-informative exhaustive research on comfort women to the English-speaking audience. His Comfort Women and Sex in the Battle Zone, an admirable English translation of his 1999 work Ianfu to Senjō no Sei (which had been referred to Comfort Women and Sexuality on the Battlefield in previous years) includes a few additional chapters to reflect on much of what has transpired in the past two decades concerning the issue of Imperial Japan’s military brothel system.

BookX – The Michael Yon Campfire Series
I am an author, photographer, war correspondent, and former cannibal hunter. Stick with me, and you might find this to be the most interesting fundraiser you’ve ever seen. The best parts are near the end.
According to Los Angeles Times, my simple website was once one of the busiest in the world. This success was accomplished with only a laptop, camera, and willingness to swim deeper into war than practically any correspondent.
According to the New York Times,
“…[Michael Yon] has spent most of the last three years in Iraq, writing prolifically and graphically, and racking up more time embedded with combat units than any other journalist, according to the United States military. He has been shot at, buffeted by explosions and seen more people maimed — fighters and civilians, adults and children — than he can count.”
I was just getting started when that article came out in 2008. The ‘best’ is yet to come. Readers who invested in me always got their money’s worth.

Combat comes unexpectedly, even in war.
On Monday, while conducting operations in west Mosul, a voice came over the radio saying troops from our brother unit, the 3-21, were fighting with the enemy in east Mosul on the opposite side of the Tigris River. Moments later, SSG Will Shockley relayed word to us that an American soldier was dead. We began searching for the shooters near one of the bridges on our side of the Tigris, but they got away. Jose L. Ruiz was killed in action.
Although the situation in Mosul is better, our troops still fight here every day. This may not be the war some folks had in mind a few years ago. But once the shooting starts, a plan is just a guess in a party dress.
