  1. Looks like a decent game, nothing spectacular but overall OK. Looking forward to it. Btw does anyone know who is voicing Jayne? Very familiar but I can't pinpoint it.
  2. So you`re basically saying that (jsut our) ends justify the means in a thread about talibani unacceptable means towards their end? I find this killings a crime and condemable but I don`t allow for their use in lowering our standard of behaviour. Its not ok to stoop to the oposition level just because theyre there. Especially cos we have an option not to and are allegedly superior by allways pursuing that option. The west doesnt get this conflict and thats why we`re doomed to fail. That fact beautifully demonstrated in this thread where people compare the war there with a nation stat
  3. I find it hillarious that out of all the dangerous dangerous men held at guantanamo they only managed to sentance bin ladens chef and driver the other day. Its a good thing they`re there, safeguarding the civilized world from people like osamas dry cleaner who would put too much starch on our clothes, the filthy terrorist. I mean do me sideways and call me nancy, a chef/driver. Its tragicomical.
  4. Saw Kick-ass the other day... could barely finish watching it. So bad. I still have a bad taste in my mouth. Cage showcasing that his bad judgment transcends his financial affairs into choosing scripts aswel lol. Watched The Ghost Writer after that. Very impressed. Polanski delevered yet again and Ewan was very good. And I allways knew there was something fishy about tony b.
  5. Its funny that out of all the concrete facts and reports on the appauling state of affairs in Afghanistan from wikileaks the propaganda machine... I mean mainstream media... got hung up on speculation about Pakistan... Under the line the situation seems like a dejavu of the last years of the soviet presence... and the modus operandi to get out of that debacke is about the same and about as effective awell. Russians must be laughing their arses off. Saying that, Pakistanis would be idiots not to play both sides. They know that in a year or so the last nato chopper will lift off and
  6. You don`t even know what nation buidling is lol. Germany and Japan allready had a national identity. Waht you`re thinking off is demilitarisation. Nation building has flopped pritty much everywhere, when we talk about forcing a national identity from the outside (ie. Iraqis, Afghans etc.). And we all know this, so que "state building" - deliberate efforts by a foreign power to construct or install the institutions of a national government, according to a model that may be more familiar to the foreign power but is often considered foreign and even destabilising. Which is such an improv
  7. Each state has a right to choose itsown political, economic and social structure. We may not care much for it, but any meddling into internal affairs of any given state by another state, like the one proposed in the OP, is quite illegal. One would have thought that 2 "nation building" disasters in quick succesion were enough to teach people such change has to come from inner inertia and not outside influence.
  8. Disputable given the nature of the two and their past. You can almost look at them as north v south in the US frozen just before the last blow of the south to the north. And lets not even get started on how big a threat Iran is heh...
  9. Not as ofthen as the US does about China or Russia selling stuff to say Iran. Cos I mean, how will WE be able to invade THEM if THEY keep arming them? lol
  10. Irrespecitve of the motive (I`m with Gfted1 on that one btw lol), there is one tncy wincy problen in afghanistan. The same one that`s pestering Iraq infact, just worse, far worse. Well 2 problems actually. a) there really isnt an afghani nation. Not really there isnt. Really. and b) the whole notion of "nation building (by force)" is dead set to go down as one of the more pompus historical blunders. Next to the lebensraum one. Afghanis are not afghanis, they`re tribal people. Say it with me: tribal people. And there are so many tribes there that they make Iraq look friggin
  11. I like it. Seems like a barrel of laughs to pass the time. The Obama article is gold, UN is`t that bad either. Boy time flies when you start sifting through that. Not sour if I should be laughing or crying thoe.
  12. Luckly an older autosave seemed to work. *shrug* Ya well, just goes to show, save often and on different slots. But keep one backup save file from when you first arrive on a planet lol.
  13. My game ctds on the spot after I make it through the "underground sanctuary" maze. The cutscende between mira and hanharr in the arena takes place ok, pictures fades out and instead of combat... boom. desktop. awwwww. Is that a known bug? I have vista 64b and other than that it all worked fine upto now. btw, sry to hijack the thread.
  14. Gameplay Fixes Have been removed - all fixes will be integrated into TSLRP. Very funny hehe.... But seriously now, I`ve hold off from replaying K2 for a year now waiting for TSLRP but now I cants take it anymore, I`m playing it again. Any chance these fixes (most notably for the broken quest on NS) available anywhere still?
  15. From Georgia with love? Sucks when the tables turn, don`t it... I`ll just say thank feck none of you "geniouses" hold any office heh.
  16. Yet another generation growing up knowing nothing but occupation, state terror and missery. Sources state that 75% of population of Gaza is malnurished, that 46% of their children have acute anemia. 1/5 of them are said to have stunted growth issue. Widespread hearing disorders from military jet sonic booms. Iron deficiency. Mental disorders culmunating in the fact that half of the children under 12 allegedly have "no will to live". Zero prospect of a decent life for 1.5mil people etc. etc. And somehow we will find it in ourselves the capacity to be "surprised & outraged" when one of th
  17. Which valuies would those be btw? "God is a republican" complex and everyone not aboard the far right train is a moron? (the fact you allegedly red up on world and spanish history yet still can claim its better we conquered the world cos living under the muslim rule would meen our "extermination due to incompatibility" makes me think you are the moron here.) Taks you need professional help. Folks like you make the upcoming shift in world power balance a welcomed and overdue occurance. As far as for our "humanitarian mission"... 1mil iraqis dead as a result and a country that will c
  18. You might wanna read up on say history of Spain there buddy. And heck, of every noncaucasian race. And if you think that it would have made any difference for a native american to be subjugated to genocide from caucasioans or asians because our way of life was morea easily "force fed" on them you`re living in a friggin fairytale. I thought I`ve seen some funny stuff coming from you, but the theory that Our historical and colonial practices were the ultimate in "user friendlyness" and are there for justified cos the ""****" or "sand-n`s" would have done far worse by them" no doubt takes THE cak
  19. For petes sake, how is saying "the issues are deeper and religious fundamentalism is but a menifestation of those issues" shoving anything under the carpet? It`s the exact opposite, saying islam is "barbaric" is doing that, in a very biggoted manner. There`s a billion muslims in much of the world, vest vast vast majority of them "moderate" by our standards. Head per head and % wise there are more orthodox jews than there are muslims lol. People that have a decent life generally do noot seek refuge in religious fundamentalism. How can that be not obvious? And yes human rights are our instit
  20. This "Islam" discussion is a mute point, honestly. A shroud and an easy thing to point a finger at to avoid the uderlying issues that are the real problem. I mean sure, in some segments its an arhaic system of beliefs. Now show me a religion that is not. christianity and judaism also have more than their fair share of norms that would strike us odd. And they both have their fare share of fundamentalists (orthodox christians, zionists etc. etc.)... Saying islam is not "evolved enough" is silly, neither chirstianity or judaism are particulary more "enlightened". Their practicioners are just,
  21. What do I know about it? Some tidbits I picked up on actual law university. What do you know about it, prey tell? Just how hypocritical can you get? US demolished 2 countries for an attack on its teritories when there was harldy much to connect them with it. And now youre sweeping under the rug a fact its military is conducting fresh illegit combat operations in a third. God I actually hope syrians get their hands on some russian hardware and down one of those choppers next time. It`d be interesting to observe, the outrage. And speaking of CB, Syria has a waterproof one at this stage, US
  22. Reducing the argument to weather or not the killed were civilians is cynical at best. Those 7 or 8 might aswell been the scum of the earth smuggling crack cocain to toddlers in gotham city, that still doesnt change a few pesky facts about a certain nations army again violating all internationall law.
  23. Guess we now know why some people get their panties in a knot at the mere mention of the possibilty of Russia selling Syria stuff like s-300 defense systems. Oh, and on the back of the 24/7 sovereignty sermons not too long ago (georgia), this is friggin HILLARIOUS.
  24. sigh... Edit: atlest Bioware and LA agreed with me on the poin that OE made a bad decision of going for "the last of the jedi" thing again, killing off an exiting new era to a close to OT status... from what I gather k2 seems to be almost completley overlooked/reversed in that aspect lol. This sith empire invaded after Revan never returned and they had a bigass war killing thousands of old jedi, and there we go... Congrats on your non canon game OE? Either that or its gonna be a completley lame workaround, 20k jedi hid succesfully. Looking for the last few survivers of a decimated order in
