Obeidi vs. Obi-Wan

According to the headlines, the big news this weekend: French fans of Star Wars flock to Paris while the US offensive in Obeidi, Iraq, against Syrian-supported insurgents is considered a success by the Pentagon.
Question 1, about Star Wars in Paris: Who cares? Lucas ruined it for us with the previous two steaming piles of Ewok droppings. Why does anyone want to see Number Three? Revenge of the Sith? Come on! It should be called, "Episode III - George Needs another Olympic sized swimming pool."
Question 2, about the offensive in Obeidi: Does anybody else notice how convenient it is to pull off a major offensive along the border of one of the next two countries we're going to invade? Next we'll be training Iraqi security forces how to dismantle a nuclear reactor near the border of Iran.

Speaking of headlines, what ever became of the the largest Ebola outbreak in recorded history? Remember, headline news mentioned it once or twice a few weeks ago. First off, they were calling it "Marburg" to keep the public from knowing what they were talking about (Marburg is a strain of Ebola) and secondly, it was in Central African Republic (or was it Congo? See I already forgot), so America as usual turned a blind eye and a deaf ear.
