Say Yes to the Jets
The new US motto on weapons for Ukraine – Thursday Throwdown
Exciting news for fans of weapons dealers! It turns out that when Biden said “No” when asked if the US would send fighter jets to Ukraine, he actually meant “Yes! Yes! A million times yes!”
It’s an unforgettable show that is part war mongering, part fashion makeover, part Armageddon, and part family therapy session. It’s Say Yes to the Jets! Only on TLC (comment what TLC could stand for here).
But Ukraine isn’t the only place where the US is down bad for war. We head over to Israel where the US is not-so-subtly supporting an apartheid state. You would almost feel bad for the baby-faced Biden staffer, terrified by such impossibly difficult questions as “How does the US classify Palestine,” or “Who will protect Palestinians from terrorism,” if he wasn’t working for the defenders of that terrorism.
If you, unlike most of the mainstream US these days, aren’t jazzed by the prospect of all this war, we do have a palate cleanser. Fox News and Tucker Carlson, who differ slightly from the go-to-war-with-Russia Democrats as go-to-war-with-China Republicans, get a rant from Jimmy Dore, who finally finds a platform on mainstream media to shout “WE’RE THE AGGRESSORS! WE DON’T NEED WAR!”
Let’s see if anyone will listen.
It’s our Thursday mini-episode. Let us know in the comments what corporate media monologues, interviews, or anything else you want to see on the next Thursday Throwdown.
