    Default Obama Years - A Dark Chapter In World History

    Lessons From a Dark Year in Syria
    Bloomberg - ‎21 minutes ago
    Noah Feldman
    The sad but I think inescapable conclusion is that the Syrian refugee crisis has a high probability of becoming permanent -- even if the war eventually ends in a de facto Assad victory. It shocks the conscience to think of almost 5 million people unable to return to their homes.

    It was sarcasm- using the word "Dark".

    I wasn't aware this commonly used term was politicaly incorrect term. If it is, I would request title to be changed to "violent chapter" or something that depicts growing bloodshed in the world.
    Is using the term "White House" ok ?

    Chill. It was just intended as a tacky joke.

    Or see them same in some other context.
    I see O as following what W put in place- however, he is considered weak by the elite for things like the Iran deal, which I was happy he did.

    Noting that the trend started under Bush and his invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan.

    The article associated with the chart in the OP notes: http://www.economist.com/blogs/graph...daily-chart-12

    Most of the deaths last year (and every year) are in the Middle East and Africa—not the West. Iraq, Nigeria, Syria, Pakistan and Afghanistan together account for three-quarters of the global total. Western countries suffered under 3% of all deaths in the past 15 years.

    Boko Haram, a jihadist group that operates mainly in northern Nigeria and Cameroon (and recently pledged affiliation to Islamic State), was responsible for over 6,600 deaths according to the Institute for Economics and Peace (which excludes military targets). That is more than any other group in the world—even IS. Nigeria has also been plagued by a new outfit in the south, the Fulani militants, which did not even exist until 2013. The increased bloodiness of both groups contributed to a quadrupling of deaths to 7,500 in 2014, the largest rise ever seen in one country. If deaths caused by war were counted, IS is far more deadly than any other organisation, even using the most conservative estimates.

    I can't help wonder what kind of smoking ruin we would be in had McCain been elected.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    That was my thought, too. Cato ranks McCain even worse than Bush on foreign policy.
