Vietnam War left a painful legacy for indigenous minority that fought alongside U.S. 21.5.2019 LA Times: Commentary

Here in the windswept, rolling hills of central Vietnam, there are many reminders of the war that ended four decades ago.

Two Soviet-made tanks sit in the village of Dak To as monuments to the men who died retaking the region from U.S.-backed South Vietnam in 1972. The flag of the communist Viet...

Keep your eyes on the story of Jason Kenney's 'war room' -- it's going to be a boondoggle! 20.5.2019 - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga The discovery last week that Postmedia was trying to cash in on Alberta Premier Jason Kenney's promised $30-million anti-environmental "war room" at the same time it has its hand out to Ottawa for a federal bailout has rather surprisingly turned out to be a story with legs. The irony of a down-on-its-luck but still influential media corporation controlled by and heavily indebted to U.S. venture funds trying to cash in on the United Conservative Party Government's effort to give credence to a conspiracy theory about Americans bankrolling the environmental movement was just too much to resist, I guess. As many observers of the Canadian media scene have noted over this May long weekend, Postmedia has already played a highly dubious role in its one-sided coverage of the energy and global climate change stories in Canada. Readers are advised to keep their eyes on this developing story, though -- not that they'll get much help from Postmedia. That's because there's much more to come than ...

War with Iran, so soon after invading Iraq on false pretenses? 18.5.2019 Los Angeles Times - Living Green

Jason Kenney vows to end 'the war on fun' by allowing alcohol in provincial campgrounds 17.5.2019 - News for the rest of us
Hey, who can be against ending Canada's war on fun? Not me, and not Jason Kenney either by the sound of it. You have to admit, though, the Alberta premier's announcement yesterday that he plans to end what he calls "the war on fun" by allowing the booze to flow again in provincial campgrounds on long weekends, starting tomorrow, was kind of a weird one. You'd almost think the United Conservative Party brain trust was just flyin' by the seat of its pants, ripping pages from the Ford brothers' beer-sodden playbook and putting the stuff in there into action without really reading it very carefully. Do you think it's possible they confused the war on cars (Rob) with buck-a-beer (Doug)? I mean, seriously, Kenney is a lifelong social conservative killjoy and a very public adherent of the religious tradition that popularized the concept of the mortification of the flesh . Well, I suppose Richard Nixon, the old red baiter, was the first to go to China, so maybe Jason Kenney can actually be the man to end ...
