Yes it is pretty frustrating sometimes. However, tell me a better one-stop news shop for the US and it’s attitudes. A hard ask I know...

Something that has been bothering me generally since Biden has got in is yet again this new round of sort of casting around for whosoever is going to be the new enemy for the US. Is it Russia, is it China, is it Iran?

Seriously the US political/military industrial system can’t exist without a major enemy at all times, and if there isn’t one you have to pretend there is. It’s infuriating and childish. As we’ve seen since WWII the US loves to be binary about these things and the first instinct for your foreign policy is the hammer.

I was hoping this could one day change, maybe there was enough humility going round after donnie dickhead but apparently not.

bellingcat's OK, microfocus on analysis, seldom updated. AP more often than Reuters, sample NYT, WaPo, Boston Globe, and a pile of others Won't read opinion in any of the U. S. majors, will in Al Jazeera and others. NYT seems to be dying of age
all the stuff I was thinking but too lazy to type :D

Kristin Starnes, a spokesperson for Jeep’s parent company, the Amsterdam-based Stellantis, said in a statement that the vehicle name was carefully selected “and nurtured over the years to honor and celebrate Native American people for their nobility, prowess and pride”.
One has to ask, if they intend to honour these people, why is the car such a piece of shit?
