    Reviewing Football Manager is like reviewing Buddhism. Yes, you can do it, but you have to take your time.

    I look forward to the US vetoing any attempt to hold the Israelis accountable.

    I'll start PMing you what I'm going to post so you can pre-clear whether it's important or not.

    If you haven't watched Mehdi Hasan's interview with Erik Prince, I so highly recommend it. This is journalism at its absolute finest.

    I understand that and fully understand that and I think we had a previous President who did not understand that but I understand that and we have spoken about this before.

    Please note this post was made by the 2012 NFL Losers Pool Champion.

    I have a strong suspicion Prince is going to end up going to prison as part of the Mueller probe. People like him still being out there unindicted are why I've never bought any of these "oh the Mueller report is coming any day now" takes.

    Man you sure have to have an ego the size of Iraq to feel like you're going to go into an interview set up like that and come out the winner.

    At least Israel's right wing doesn't bother pretending this isn't their goal:

    A public relations firm has claimed credit for placing cameras in Arab polling stations in support of Mr. Netanyahu’s Likud party, boasting that the effort helped lower voter turnout, according to posts on the company’s Facebook page.

    The company, Kaizler Inbar, in a public Facebook post wrote: “Thanks to us placing observers in every polling station we managed to lower the voter turnout to under 50 percent, the lowest in recent years!” according to a translation in the Israeli news outlet Haaretz.

    The company said it worked with Likud to distribute the cameras. The company is headed by Sagi Kaizler, a former leader of a West Bank settler group, who confirmed to Haaretz that his company was behind the Likud-funded effort.

    A photo of staff members standing alongside Mr. Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, was posted with the note.
