    Would be prudent for media outlets to start using a non-geographic simple name before Cuban gov protests, perhaps something like "alpha/beta/gamma.. syndrome" or some other generic term following the WHO guided "delta variant" naming conventions example.

    On a side note, France just made a non-surrendring alpha move (in the diplomatic domain): France condemns US, Australia 'lies' over security pact snub, recalls ambassadorsIn recent past, a French media outlet had published disrespectful cartoon of Prez Biden and former FLOTUS Melania Trump but it does not appear such media publications played a role in recent Biden snub. Caution: Graphic cartoon that many may find offensive https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/OrwAA...63~/s-l400.jpg

A US Air Force C-17 cargo aircraft lined up at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar to evacuate Afghans fleeing Kabul 21 Sep 2021 The US House of Representatives is moving to approve $6.3bn in emergency assistance to help resettle Afghan refugees in the United States after the country’s evacuation operation from Kabul last month. The funds are part of a larger $28.6bn disaster relief and stopgap government funding bill expected to be passed in the House on Tuesday evening – but could face an uphill battle in the US Senate.

    again. How do media owners' employees decide which missing person story should be made a top national headline for months and 90% of all exygen given to one case while ignoring all other missing persoon cases.. when there is a good photogenic person involved to boost media ratings? All possible efforts should be made to recover missing persons but what justifies months long national level focus on a single case while zero coverage of all the other cases.

    These are subjective opinions mostly based on media reports and Nobel Peace Prize factor may have also colored some opinions; until some judicious entity (not ICC) takes account of last 20 years wars policies and actors role, a fully accurate comparison may remain elusive. But some educated guesses can be made based on what is in public domain, see post above.

    EM Putting aside partisan/tribal aspects (that also play a role no doubt) for a moment, in this particular case 'the guy in the middle' is being called architect of the "Afghanistan mess" and not of the entire 20 years Afghan policy. It is undisputed that largest troops surges/war escalation, deaths of highest number of US troops, civilians, children (and creation of largest number of terrorists) took place on his watch. The 12-Year War: 73% of U.S. Casualties in Afghanistan Occured on Obama's Watch If he was being pressured behind the scenes, he should have taken Congress/public into confidence instead of being a compliant puppet of deep neecons pushing lies based global interventions. He could still do that following the example of Colin Powell who to his credit tried to set the record straight few years after launch of Iraqi freedom war blunder.

    Biden's Peace credential also seem lacking relatively since he never won a Nobel Peace Prize. While observation about Biden being 'an old white guy' may be factual, is the suggestion here that Obama got a pass from liberals over his alleged war crimes and Afghan war bungling because he was of 'mixed race'? Had read some unproven theories previously about deep neocon lobbies' plays during Iraq, Syria, Libya, Gaza interventions of recruiting and grooming weak, politically orhpan minorities (Jamaican heritage Colin 'I'm not reading this. This is bull$hit' Powell, Kamala Harris, Latino-American Marco 'need to dig in for a fight in Iraq' Rubio, Rafael Ted 'boots on the ground in Syria' Cruz, Condi 'Iraq war birthing pains' Rice etc) to use them to push US taxpayers funded global wars. But this at best could be one of the multilple factors and media liberals role seems to be part of a bigger more complex media-politics nexus story.

    One drone strike on Biden watch (that killed 10 civilians) has got more scrutiny, transparency and condemnation in US media than all the thousands of drone strikes combined on Obama watch that killed thousands of civilians and children. What is driving this stark shift in attitudes? 'God bless partisan politics'... or recent social justice campaigns ('Me Too' following Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein takedown, BLM following Miriam Carey and George Floyd killings) or something else...

    Couple of MSM news/views that do not cast a positive light on former Prez Obama. In the past, liberal progressive section of media has mostly painted a flattering picture of Obama but there has also been harsh sporadic criticism (he was famously called 'war criminal' & 'hypocrite of the century' in Irish Parliament, 'a puppet of bankers' by his former pastor Rev Jeremiah Wright, 'Founding Father of ISIS' by Trump, 'Uncle Tom' and other disrespectful names in social media following execution of unarmed black mother Miriam Carey by elite cops outside Obama White House). Obama is architect of Afghanistan mess, says former US special ops general Tori Richards August 17, 2021 Throughout the Afghanistan withdrawal debacle and the Taliban's rapid takeover, one person has been strangely silent: former President Barack Obama.

    Corrupt Afghan warlords who fleeced US taxpayers for 20 years in the failed $3 Trillion Afghan war are coming to k-street in effort to pull US back into that bottomless pit of corruption and incompetence. Be Interesting to see how Deep Neocons / Forever Wars lobbies react to this (assuming they are not facilitating this dubious plan).

Once in a while WaPo does print news with potential to inform. Perhaps the Trump inspired growing wedge between moderate/left-wing, pro Iraq-war zionism of WaPo/NYT and hard-right pro-Israeli settlements zionism of the Kushner family is resulting in some infighting that might benefit tax payers in the end.

CUFI Leader John Hagee confirms Christian Zionism is anti-Semitic

Evangelical pastor John Hagee, the leader of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the US’ largest pro-Israel organization and the most powerful group in the Christian Zionist movement, has adamantly insisted that Christian Zionism is anti-Semitic.

WorldNetDaily (WND), a far-right website published an article in March 2015 about the “Blood Moon Prophecy,” an end-of-times theory that lunar eclipses are a sign
