I do look forward to each Thursday at 6. Terrible things going on that we discuss on this show. ISIS and the atrocities in Africa. Heavy times. But we will get through them and make the world better in due time. Thanks for listening and tune in next week for the Abe Lincoln's Birthday/Valentimes Edition of Dusty. You are incredible.

RE: ISIS, this whole situation was created on purpose and was achieved by disbanding the Iraqi military. Then we arm this fake army that retreats as soon as they're attacked and leaves behind all the weapons and hardware that we gave them for the terrorists to use.

i think its safe to assume there's no bullshit free nation.

@david: Adding on to Slick's idea, it could be a refueling ship, since oil is pretty filthy!

@Marcel: Except in North Africa there are many many Autotuners adding their own touch to their native music. In fact N. African music is the only sound that really works well under Autotune.

Traditionally known as "West Africa", but I'll point out that's still in the northern half of the continent, Cecile ;)

And I love the music of Ghana and Nigeria! The Francophone nations of Benin and Gabon also do AMAZING music!

King Sunny Ade didn't use autotune!

I guess I wasn't lumping them in with North Africa, Matt, just saying there are other nations out there making cool music with autotune. sorry about the confustion.

No, but he used synths.

we created isis by making a couple of huge vacuums in those countries. and we can't keep our asses out of anybodies' business so we keep the oil flowing. we are just a bunch of selfish dumb fucks. the bush family dumber than most. but realistically clinton had intel on 9/11 and was too busy dicking around. it's not a dem/rep thing - it's selfish stupid insular chest beating americanism
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Internationalized radical gang. Instead of just roughing up your block you can join a worldwide movement you heard about on the 'Net. Like street gangs, (or Nazi Germany, Clay), but more intense and harmful in scope.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm davex:

"All they understand is fear." A lot of them are nihilists from western countries on an adrenaline kick. On what basis do people make these presumptions? Is this a projection?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Matt from Springfield:

@Polyus: I'll listen for it, I certainly hope that was the case (but I'm not betting on it...)

  6:39pm Phil:

Clay, That police officer is uninformed with respect to where Oil is. It's not a black thing. Nigeria is a member of opec and #13 in global production - It's bonny light crude is also considered some of the best available. We didn't intervene there because it's hard to distinguish friend from foe, in spite of Michelle Obama's feckless pleading. We did not intervene in Sudan and this is a growing producer in spite of the egregious human riots violations committed in darfur. I understand it's almost reflexive for african americans to blame someone else when some unexplainable issue confronts them but get your facts straight when assigning blame. This applies to when cops don't get indicted for shooting criminals in MO or the US intervening in another nation's affairs uninvited like Nigeria or Sudan.

@Phil One of the many reasons why the US didn't do any real intervention in Darfur region was due to not pissing off China who happens to own one of many cheque books. China got land, resource, and water rights in exchange for giving arms and gear to militias that were displacing people.

Here's a great bbc article on China's involvement in the region, http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7503428.stm

how has everyone dealt with real evil or real bullies successfully? we have lots of resources we haven't used against cirrhISIS besides bombs. we can't destroy evil. but we can compete with it and outsell it and ... . it doesn't seem like killing ISIS members, even if identified correctly would be a very successful long term strategy. What do they care? and it just makes their brand stronger. there's lots we can do against them without reaching into the bottomless ineffective pit of american military action. love and peace to everyone. and the occasional orgasm.

@Malky - Mia Farrow of all people did what the US Govt could not or would not do. She shrewdly brought some of the things the Chinese were doing to prop up the Sudanese Govt and successfully persuaded the nation's largest pension fund CalPers to divest of Chinese energy companies it was invested in particularly Petro China and the stock has never recovered. Many other socially conscious funds followed suit - It was a master stroke.

The Chinese are 100pct responsible for the ongoing horror in Darfur because they furnish the govt with support - The govt in turn sells all their oil to Petro china and others Chinese corps like SinoPec. But their presence is felt all over Africa now on the East and West coasts. They are amoral in their support and provide aid and assistance to Govt's civilized nations have tried to marginalize. They also sell their veto vote on the UN Security Council which is another reason the UN has never had a meaningful presence in Sudan and other places that conflict with Chinese interests.
