Gun control is not enough: When the shadow of a tree is bent, straighten the tree, not the shadow

Support for gun control in America is fading. Time and emotions go in opposite directions. The more time passes, the less emotion stays.

Superpowers don’t support asylum for Assange: A hyena cannot smell its own stench

The irony in this affair is that the three main countries that violated international laws have been exposed in their lies (France, UK, and the US). The UK for instance refused to extradite Pinochet.
