Photographer: SeongJoon Cho/Bloomberg *Mark Thompson, Bloomberg*: *What to Do About the Koreas* No good U.S. military options exist, and the consequences of Trump’s confrontational policy aren’t yet clear. Rolling a painted mock-up of an intercontinental ballistic missile across a Pyongyang plaza before 100,000 cheering regime loyalists is a lot different from sending the real thing across the Pacific. North Korean scientists do know the difference. They’ve been slowly learning about the challenges posed by aerodynamic stresses, unstable rocket fuel—and possible U.S. cybermischief... more »

Governments Now Extending “Human Rights” to Rivers

Alex Newman at rss - 7 hours ago
As if the United Nations and its largely autocratic member regimes had not yet sufficiently perverted the concept of “human rights,” now “human rights” and “personhood” are being bestowed on rivers and other inanimate creations by governments. Animals are next in line for “human rights.” Meanwhile, the UN and most of its member governments continue to trample on the actual human rights of actual humans — and especially the smallest, most innocent, and most vulnerable humans. The legal and religious implications of the developments are enormous.
