      We’ve had decades of basically nothing changing in western countries. Politics is just an abstract thing that we commentate on because it doesnt materially impact us. Politics happens out there in the hinterlands. People have their entire lives ruined and their families destroyed in the blink of an eye and without warning in the hinterlands. I’m not actually sure any of those people are actually real, anyway. So I will vote for the red team or the blue team depending on my aesthetic preference.

      That will change of course. We are on a collision course with the laws of physics. Liberals of all stripes will ignore that though and continue to play empire.

    Correct, I’m not voting for the guy who has been enabling genocide for six months regardless of whether he stops tomorrow

    I don’t want Biden to “call for” a ceasefire. He’s the goddamn commander in chief and Israel is his vassal. I want Biden to enact a ceasefire

    The Palestinian goal has always been self-determination. Liberals want to ignore this and think a ceasefire was always the primary goal, when it’s a temporary compromise.

    No, the goal is decolonization and a single Palestinian state. That’s the only solution

      they’re defensive bombs, what do you think the D IN IDF stands for? it’s all about using the right words, and that’s why Biden Bros are so thrilled he’d called for a temporary pause on the conflict. next up I’m looking forward to the tut tutting

    It’s too bad the President of the United States can’t do anything to stop a genocide beyond wagging his finger and politely asking them to knock it off.

    I always wonder who would be gullible and stupid enough to hear the empty pledges without looking deeper into the actions taken before, during, and after making them? Who would see “Russia and China block ceasefire” and just repeat that line to own the tankies without looking further into their reasoning.

    That’s when you meet people like the poster of that meme and everyone agreeing. You can argue damn near anything and they’ll find some way to convince themselves they’re in the right. And these are supposedly educated people with degrees.

    Guys it’s not like he’s in charge of the country keeping “Israel” afloat, it’s not like he has blocked Congress to send them bombs so they can continue their genocide; listen, he said he’s really mad, what else do you want? He can’t do anything else, he’s powerless.

    And yes, Trump would use his power as President to make the United States a part of Russia.

    Ceasefire ain’t gonna do much at this point. He needs to demand that Israel help rebuild Gaza cause that land is nigh unusable at this point. They completely obliterated all of its critical infrastructure. How do they expect people to live in rubble?
