Today, while the American mainstream media chews over the latest twists in the election for president which is still a month away, important events happen all over the world, blithely ignored by American voters. It should not have surprised anyone that former governor Gary Johnson, the libertarian candidate, didn't know what 'Aleppo' was, and couldn't mention even one world leader -admired or not: he is on a par with most American voters.

On this first Monday in October, protesting Greek pensioners are being pepper-sprayed by their government, the Taliban raised their flag over the Afghan city of Kunduz on the fifteenth anniversary of the start of the Afghan War; Polish women protest against an anti-abortion law that would force rape victims to give birth or risk prison; and amidst a government state of emergency, thousands of Turkish teachers and university professors suspected of backing a recent coup attempt protest being been laid off; the presence of tens of thousands of refugees from Middle East wars continues to roil Europe, as Hungarians vote overwhelmingly to refuse to accept a Brussels-mandated quota, and Serbia announces it will follow suit, while the new British Prime Minister declares she will lose no time setting up Britain's exit from the EU.

Notwithstanding these events, the only significant piece of news broadcast on CNN has been Washington's suspension of talks with Russia over Syria. as part of the PR campaign intended to build public support for all-out war.
