Politics and Current Events / Qatar
Saudi Arabia breaks diplomatic ties with Qatar. UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Libya and Maldives follow suit.

So far the media reports of the underlying reasons look pretty sketchy.

"There are two competing theories," Gayle Tzemach Lemmon, senior fellow at the Council of Foreign Relations says about the origin of the spat.

"One is that Saudi Arabia felt emboldened after Donald Trump's visit, and Trump's administration has had a strong stance on Iran, which is backed by Qatar.

"Another theory is that this is a product of month's tension, all brought to a breaking point after the Qatar news agency hacking story."

Politics and Current Events / North Korea
* NK barred all Malaysians from leaving the country
* NK fired four missiles, claimed to be practice for hitting US bases in Japan
* US deploys anti-missile system (maybe planned since before)
* Russia and China objects to anti-missile system
* China National People's Congress happens now

Can't tell how much of this is the usual North Korean testing of US/Chinese/South Korean leaders and how much is a new kind of mess.

Politics and Current Events / KKK leader found dead
Quote
Frank Ancona, the outspoken imperial wizard of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, was found shot to death Saturday near Belgrade, Mo.

The body of the 51-year-old Leadwood, Mo., resident was discovered near the Big River by a family fishing in the area, according to Washington County Sheriff Zach Jacobsen in southeast Missouri.

Washington County coroner Brian DeClue told The Kansas City Star that Ancona died of a gunshot wound to the head.

"It was not self inflicted," he said. "This is now a homicide investigation."
