    Current Events and Politics

    Post articles and things about current events and politics here. Historical events are okay too as long as there's at least some recent development or connection.

    One ground rule: try not to clog up the thread with too much back-and-forth on any one topic, so that things can keep moving along. If something turns into an argument that keeps going on as new topics are posted, please take it to a new thread. This especially goes for anything particularly contentious, such as the Affordable Care Act or the Israel/Palestine conflict. I'd rather this thread be a spring than a sponge for discussion.

    To start things off light: recently the Library of Congress released President Harding's love letters to his mistress. His family had agreed to donate the letters to the Library in 1964 on the condition that they remain sealed for 50 years on account of them being quite saucy. He nicknamed his penis "Jerry".

    Baghdad is in turmoil, and it has nothing to do with ISIS.

    Pretty much everyone is sick of Prime Minister Malaki's shit, including us, for being a sectarian dickbag whose agenda has stoked the rise of ISIS and been ineffective in dealing with it. Numerous voices, some within his own party, have been calling for him to step down before he begins a third term so that President Masoum can choose someone less controversial to name as the next term's PM. Masoum has delayed doing so on account of Maliki failing to form a majority coalition for the next term's government, though his party controls the largest number of seats.

    Maliki has just stationed Special Forces loyal to him around the Green Zone (governmental center in Baghdad) and delivered a blistering speech stating in no uncertain terms that he intends to stay in power, and accused Masoum of violating the constitution in stalling the process of naming him for another term as PM. This may develop into a full-blown coup, and it couldn't happen at a worse possible time as ISIS continues to wreck shit throughout Iraq.
