Spirit AeroSystems Whistleblower Dies After Sudden Infection

The series of mysterious deaths among Boeing whistleblowers continues.

Joshua Dean, a former quality auditor at Boeing supplier Spirit AeroSystems and one of the first whistleblowers to allege Spirit leadership had ignored manufacturing defects on the 737 MAX, died Tuesday morning after a struggle with a sudden, fast-spreading infection. 

Multi-resistant germs, they say.

Further on, the verbally always competent Cory Doctorow on Boeing and the Material Review Segretation Area.

Admit it folks, we all love to fly Boeing!

Once they arrest all the protestors, ban Tik Tok and make it illegal to say "Israel bad" it should be smooth sailing from there

They're concerned it will disrupt and challenge their authority - similar to events surrounding the Arab Spring.

You mean the Arab states. The Arab nations support the Palestinians, but are mostly under the thumb of US-supported autocrats.

When you get down to it, Hamas was voted into office, and currently has the support of 80% of the citizens of Gaza.  Gaza is Hamas is the Palestinians; they are synonymous as in one and the same. Also the only support that Hamas / the Palestinians has in the Arab world comes from Iran and its proxies.  The rest of the Arab nations wish they did not exist, which is why you see none of them offering refuge or aid.  The Iranians only see them as cannon fodder, which Hamas has no problem in offering up its citizens as by using them as human shields and stealing the aid meant for the citizens of Gaza.

Biden would disagree with you.  While he came down against the antisemite protests he also came down on the people who don't support Hamas.

He did what Trump did only in reverse essentially saying that there are bad people on both sides instead of saying that there are good people on both sides.

And, while those who called out Trump over and over again for his remarks, I have heard no one call out Biden for doing what is exactly the same thing.

i'm not sure i saw that?

When/where did Biden do that?

Hamas and Putin represent different threats, but they share this in common: They both want to completely annihilate a neighboring democracy — completely annihilate it.

Hamas — its stated purpose for existing is the destruction of the State of Israel and the murder of Jewish people.

Hamas does not represent the Palestinian people. Hamas uses Palestinian civilians as human shields, and innocent Palestinian families are suffering greatly because of them.

Well that’s because it’s not exactly the same thing. The Palestinian people being killed by Israel are mostly innocent bystanders, other victims of the actions of Hamas.
The crowd that Trump couldn’t repudiate weren’t bystanders at all. He should’ve been clear instead of supportive.

One of the funniest movie scenes EVAH!

I told my parents to watch "The Big Lebowski"—"great movie, hilarious!". Two weeks later I tuned into the movie on cable, just in time to watch Walter Sobchak (John Goodman) smash up a car while bellowing repeatedly, "This is what happens when you F&VK a stranger in the ass!"

Ultra cringe. Actually, my parents loved it. Dad giggled like a schoolboy at that scene...
