My diary rating continues to climb for no reason, and it's about time to do somehting about it. To that end, here's my views on the war with Islamists.
The war is a perfect example of denial of reality when it is too hurting. Leftists simply deny that they all will die prematurely if Islamists are not stopped, because most of leftists are good people. They cannot comprehend the scale of murderous villany which engulfed the Middle East. It is unreal to them, they do not believe that no matter how much we appease, help the poor, donate hospitals and schools, etc., it is all in vain. I think Raph is one of those good natured and tragically misguided souls, and it's sad.
In other news, I am confronted with a port of rmap to s390. It may not be a big deal, but only if PMD entries form full pages on the platform (crossing fingers).
