A manic or morbid Monday? War! What is a good far!? Absolutely nothing

It is what you make of it.. It seems humanity is making the worst of it regardless of where you look.. A collection and smattering of spatterings making headlines from the world at large..

Image: Militants from ISIL lead away captured Iraqi soldiers in plain clothes after taking over a base in Tikrit
There has been a dramatic escalation of violence in Iraq over the weekend as ISIS--or now ISIL (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant)--has been accused of mass murder. The accusation makes it easy when they go online to brag about their mass murder.. There are images and grisly videos circulating the world wide web.. the entire planet can now see the barbaric nature with which ISIL/ISIS imposes Sharia Law.  And now this: Iran is directly getting involved with the conflict while the United States contemplates what else it will do.. In the meantime all eyes are on the Baghdad Embassy where personnel are still housed and militants take over more areas, closing in on the city..

At this point: 550 (or more?) Marines are on a warship in the Persian Gulf..

And of course there are some websites that argue the images are faked and photoshopped..  DUTCHSINSE paints a good picture that some may be, but not all are.. nor are all videos.. Sometimes "conspiracy" is shouted too often and too loudly..After all, let's take a quick historical trip down amnesia lane .. Many are pointing out (rightly so) that the Bush adventure in Iraq was a bad move, few are speculating on how the recent movements by ISIS could actually be a product of the Obama Administration.. Lest we forget.. America's allies are funding ISIS and so is America, too..  recent history tells us that it's unwise to play our meager chess games in the Middle East. There's never a victory..

Legend gone..Casey Kasem dead at 82
Very sad news this weekend as the legendary Casey Kasem died at the age of 82--this after recent weeks of making the news as his family debated the proper way his life should end. At one point recently, Kasem seemingly vanished and a judge had to order him back... The voice of Shaggy and so many other characters put Kasem into our living rooms and lives every day.  I will also smile when I hear the famed tape of Kasem flipping out.. Good show, Casey.

Big bucks!! Starbucks is making some mighty big news today.. the company is offering its workers FREE COLLEGE TUITION!  There are some strings attached and limitations within, but it's quite an adventureous venture.  SO  now you know..A shame a college degree these days is worth as much as a Starbucks cup of coffee..

Bad form, thieves, bad form..

Miley Cyrus Goes Topless Before Her Shower on Instagram!
At this point, Miley Cyrus should just start her own nude website in which people watch her scratch herself and stick her tongue out all day.. The less than dignified music sensation posted a photograph of herself prior to a shower. Topless. Good thing you can't smell a person through Instagram--after all this was prior to bathing. Smellagram is a future endeavor, but until then we can only just imagine..
