Excuse me but Steven Grant Rogers KNEW that the Winter Soldier killed Tony’s parents and instead of TELLING him outright and having a space for Tony to be angry and grieve and eventually work toward understanding that Bucky was the Soldier and a victim, HID THE TRUTH AND IS A SHITTY FRIEND FOR DOING THAT AND TONY WAS COMPLETELY IN THE RIGHT FOR WANTING TO BEAT THAT ASS.
Last weekend I visited the Wisconsin Veterans Museum in Madison, Wisconsin. It is a free museum with excellent exhibits, a manageable floor plan, and it is located on the beautiful capitol square. Here are links to my individual posts on the museum:
Will you explain America's missile attack on the Syrian airbase? I'm kinda confused. Why did the US choose that target? Is it good or bad that the US is involving itself in Syrian civil war? What side does the US support? Will this help or hurt civilians? If this is bad, what is the right action for the US to take? Will the US accept refugees now that we are involved? I'm sorry that I don't understand what this means in the grand scheme of things. Thank you for the information on your blog.
2) Is it good or bad that the US is involving itself in Syrian civil war?
Overwhelmingly bad. Not only is it likely to accomplish very little in the long run that will actually help or prevent the Assad regime from continuing to commit human rights violations against its population, it’ll also open the door to increased US involvement and extend its undue influence to suit their benefit at the expense of the local population.
Hurt civilians, not just in terms of the people harmed via the airstrikes, but also in terms of the retaliation that Assad will inevitably mete out towards his citizens.
5) If this is bad, what is the right action for the US to take?
Do absolutely nothing, except allow Syrians their right to self-determination. This applies equally as stringently towards Russia, Iran and any other country that’s choosing to ally itself and help with bolstering Assad’s regime and aiding his repressive measures.
6) Will the US accept refugees now that we are involved?
Trump’s travel ban has been frozen for the second time around, so it’s not implemented at the moment. That being said, there hasn’t been a whole lot of information from the White House or Trump himself regarding a changed stance on accepting refugees. Given that, I think it’s safe to assume at present that the official line is to still brand all refugees as terrorists and do whatever is possible to bar their entry.
this day in 1862, William Wallace Lincoln, son of President Abraham
Lincoln, died aged eleven. Known as ‘Willie’,
he died due to
illness which was most likely typhoid fever. His brother Tad also
became ill, but later recovered, though the illness greatly troubled his family, who feared they would lose another son.
Lincoln and his wife Mary Todd were deeply affected by Willie’s death,
President Lincoln not returning to work for three weeks and Mary Todd
being so distraught that her husband feared for her sanity. His son’s
death occurred in the midst of Lincoln’s presidency, and in the second
year of the American Civil War that was prompted by the election of the
anti-slavery Republican Lincoln. Despite these personal setbacks,
Lincoln successfully oversaw the Union’s victory in the Civil War and
the abolition of slavery - leading to him being known as the ‘great
“My poor boy. He was too good for this earth. God
has called him home. I know that he is much better off in heaven, but
then we loved him so. It is hard, hard to have him die!” - Lincoln upon his son’s death
