This sounds good, but it's actually really fucking bad. It helps our education system, what's left of it after the past 17 damn years. Here's what's no longer available.

Making sure kids can read and supporting adulthood literacy: Education for All

A program that monitors and assesses access to education across income levels and genders around the world. This program funds the expansion of early childhood education, education for girls, and adult literacy.

Gone.

Keeping our water safe for children: International Hydrological Programme

Devoted to water research and resource management, this program helps member nations use the latest science to create effective strategies for conserving water.

Gone

Preserving historical documents: Library Digitization
Because parchment and papyrus don't last forever, UNESCO helps libraries around the world digitize and preserve their most precious documents.

Leaving UN programs is actually a really fucking bad idea if we can't come up with alternatives for ourselves. Don't say we can't.

Also US aid for UNESCO has been vital for preserving historical landmarks across the world, particularly ruins of old civilizations. And we also help bring what we get. It's one of the better UN programs and there's little to no downside.

Leaving because of "Anti-Israel" bias, is not only fucking embarrassing, but stupid. Extremely fucking stupid.

This overall, is a fucking terrible idea.

Anthony Garcia

You're basically right. It's probably a good idea to show some skepticism and restraint over support for any one group fighting there (no matter how good they seem, it almost seems inevitably things can turn shit in an instant). But considering the circumstances the Houthis are fighting against what they need to and should, for bringing this bullshit into their country.

I almost think the Cholera outbreak was purposefully done by the Saudi government

When President Kid Rock changes the national anthem to his version of Sweet Home Alabama, will it be better or worse than the current abomination?

Houthis are mostly just angry mountain folk. They were in revolt against longtime leader of Yemen Saleh. H'd killed their leader or something. Saleh received support of the US (a lot) to combat Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Those guys currently control eastern desert in Yemen, and are in deep with the Saudi's. This support mostly beefed up the Republican Guard, an elite unit.

Now, for some reason or other Saleh got deposed and replaced by Hadi, a weak Saudi puppet with some support of South Yemen groups, some of whom want independence. This made Saleh strike a deal with the Houthis, bringing over the Republican guard, superbly equipped and trained by among others the US. They promptly seizes most of the country.

Of course, at this point the Saudi's, who are feeling insecure due to Arab Spring, Iranian expansion after Iraq war, and so on, flip their shit. They try to unseat the Houthi-Saleh alliance by air bombardment, and sending in a ton of mercenaries (their own troops being too ineffective). The Saudi's and their dogs have however suffered a couple of embarrassing military setbacks. They starve Yemen by blockading it and destroying vital infrastructure out of pure spite.

Make of that what you will.

Isn't as cold anymore due to global warming, and winter barely exist in the southern part of Sweden, lots of rain though. If you migrate you'll be granted free healthcare and ability to seek welfare the moment you do. But you need to show strong interest in wanting to live in Sweden, meaning you have to act independantly of the state to make sure you'll be able to stay, do so and the state will assist you

I love that Trump's dismantling of Obamacare is actually going to force the Democrats to abandon the program altogether and adopt universal Medicare as their official party platform. They can't work with the Republicans on a repeal (i.e., political suicide) and they can't defend something that's dying right before our eyes, so they really have no other choice.

Is it me or does Erdogan leave the impression of a manchild?
“What a shame if the great United States of America is being governed by an ambassador in Ankara. Because this is the position they are holding. They should have said, ‘You cannot treat my strategic ally this way, you cannot act this way.’ But they couldn't say this,” he said, as quoted by Anadolu Agency.

The US State Department has denied that claim, saying Bass had the “full backing” of Washington, and that his actions were coordinated with the department, the White House, and the National Security Council.

Erdogan went on to deliver a blunt message to Washington, saying “we do not need you.”

“We are not a tribal state. We are the state of the Republic of Turkey and you will accept it. If you don’t, then sorry but we do not need you,” he said, as quoted by Hurriyet.
