Trevor Noah Blasts Trump Claim That Video Games Inspire Shootings

Trevor Noah Blasts Trump Claim That Video Games Inspire ShootingsPresident Donald Trump would have taken no joystick in Trevor Noah’s mockery of his suggestion that video games share blame for gun violence like the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida. The president convened a meeting of video game industry leaders on Thursday to explore the possibility, prompting “The Daily Show” host to imagine the conversation. “Why isn’t Mario here?” says an imitation Trump, who is reminded that video game characters aren’t real.

Kurdish president defiant over referendum in face of war games and flight suspensions

Kurdish president defiant over referendum in face of war games and flight suspensionsMasoud Barzani, president of Iraqi Kurdistan, was last night defiant over his decision to hold a controversial referendum on independence, even as its neighbour Iran mounted pressure by closing its airspace and launching military drills on the border. Tehran announced on Sunday it was blocking all flights to and from Kurdistan at the request of ally Iraq, which has described the secession vote as “unconstitutional” and warned that it could fan the flames of tensions in the Middle East. Some five million Kurds will go to the polls today in the three provinces that have since 2003 formed the autonomous region of Kurdistan, but also in territories disputed with Baghdad such as the oil-rich province of Kirkuk. Mr Barzani, a 71-year-old guerilla leader-turned-politician who enjoys something of a cult of personality in Kurdistan, has mustered huge popular support for the vote. The streets of Erbil, Kurdistan’s capital, are festooned with red, white and green Kurdish flags and large crowds holding nightly rallies. The Kurds – more than 30 million people spread across Iraq, Turkey, Iran and Syria – have long sought a state of their own. The result seems a foregone conclusion.

Instead, observers say, Mr Barzani is using the referendum as leverage in the Kurdish Regional Government's longstanding disputes with federal authorities. “Our relationship with Baghdad is over, it is no longer working,” Mr Barzani told reporters during a press conference at the presidential palace in the mountains outside Erbil.

He said he had hoped for a better relationship with Baghdad after the fall in 2003 of the late iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, who arrested, tortured and killed tens of thousands of Kurds during his rule. “We had a hope our relationship with Baghdad would improve, based on pluralism and democracy. But it didn’t take us long to realise that while the faces of the politicians changed, their mentality was the same,” he said. When asked why the vote could not be delayed, as the international community has repeatedly requested, Mr Barzani said: "We cannot wait another year, they will not change their mind, it will only strengthen their position." Some Kurds the Telegraph spoke to said they were planning to vote “yes” at the polls today, but worried about the consequences. “Our course we want our own country, to stand on our own, but I am scared about how our neighbours will respond,” said student Ahmed Rasol. “We will not have security in the future if we have no friends.”
