Jordan on edge after ISIS win; celebrates campaign against smoking instead

Ya, it's not looking great in the war on terror... but by golly, look how we're doing in the war on cigarettes!

In fact, that's what took the life of Eric Garner, didn't it?

He was selling duty-free smokes in the street. That's why he had to be strangled to death. A policeman was enforcing the cigarette taxes.

That is so far beyond fucked up, I'm not even going to try to make a joke of it.

Jordan is on the cusp of revolutionary change. The big dogs in Jordan, who are pretty much invisible dogs in Washington and Brussels, are declaring war on cigarettes, when one of their warplanes just got shot down by fellow Arabs while carrying out a bombing mission on fellow Arabs.

This is, to say the least, confusing.

But I'm guessing the Jordanians can figure it out...
