Depressing as all hell. There's a real fear that Afghanistan is going to slip back into something resembling the days of the Taliban, and this clip demonstrates that.

I'm going to make this thread a sticky, as I wanted it as a place for people to share just how atrocious the world is.

Ditto. And looking at Fox News, I don't care so much that they have a very conservative bent. Others have a more liberal bent, like MSNBC. What pisses me off about Fox is their self-proclamation that they are "fair and balanced" when they are so clearly not.
