  1. I'm too lazy to dig up old threads but I did predict earlier this year that Olaf Sholtz would be the next German Chancellor leading the SDP and form a coalition with the Greens, and this was way back when the SDP was lagging in the polls. I'll take that as good news if they do win, Germany going more left could have positive repercussions for the Anglo world as the EU is still technically allied with the U.S.
  2. Red Flags abound, and I hope the Kremlin is not directly involved. Mali and The Wagner Group (dailykos.com)
  3. These are not long term solutions to curb the root causality of social ills inflicted by the current economic structure of the U.S. A lot of people like to point to some European countries like Denmark as a success story, but what people don't understand is that a lot of these generous welfare states are only successful because they make a killing off of the curtails of the American Empire, just like middle class people are only middle class because they are sandwiched between the rich and the poor slums, hence: Europe, the middle class of the world. Without the U.S. and without poor countries they would not be able to stay afloat like they do.
  4. Both the Russians and Chinese have plenty of citizenry who critique their government, they just do it "flying low" like on the internet (netizens) and in small circles etc. In fact, the government often likes these critiques because it helps them gauge public opinion better and in turn direct policy accordingly. Really not much different from the U.S., I mean technically you CAN go out on a podium in town square with a loudspeaker in the U.S. and trash talk Uncle Sam, but you bet your sweet rear end that you're gonna be on The List if you choose to do so.
  5. Potion Craft Now we're talkin'! This is the PC Indie crap I love. Too bad it's Early Access, but I'm almost compelled to try it out and do some research on the subject and slam the devs if they get any of the basic fundamentals of solvents and reagents wrong.
  6. Looks interesting. Of course I'll probably get bored of it after 1 hour or so like I did the original but I'm liking the trend of reskinning and modding old gamestyles into the current and some of them are certainly a breath of fresh air.
  7. What's funny is South Africa is now part of BRICS, has an independent foreign policy, is no longer part of the Angloshpere (U.S., Australia, U.K., Canada), and its worlds largest trading partner is....China. Yet Bruce comes off sounding like some Englishman from the mid-20th century xD. Ye long for white colonialism of yore, God Save the Queen! *rollseyes*
  8. Missouri cave with ancient Native American drawings sold (apnews.com)
  9. U.S. has been blowing up civilian vehicles based on faulty intel "accidently" for decades now, this is really nothing new except MSM deciding to report this particular case for some reason. I think it's because they're disgusted with Biden's withdrawal and kinda lost their hero complex in him so decided to get back at him, or something along those lines. It's concerning because nations, like people, pay for their transgressions and I'm afraid all this is gonna back and haunt the U.S. sometime in the near future and my family and myself might be in physical danger.
  10. Now we're talkin'! If you're gonna do minimalism, do it RIGHT left.
  11. My ignorance? You're the one who comes off sounding like some grey puffed up elitist know-it-all. But I shall concede that I forgot General Smedley Butler who wrote "War is a Racket" which should be mandatory reading for all middle schoolers. Milley did nothing wrong, and I'm not even sure I would have the courage to do what he did were I in his shoes, taking such big countermeasures against an unhinged maniac POTUS and his basically neo-Confederate constituency.
  12. Joe Biden has ‘great confidence’ in top general Milley after Trump revelation | Joe Biden | The Guardian A general with integrity, haven't heard stories like that since what? The Civil War?
  13. More "likeable" than funny but RIP nonetheless.
  14. ‘He shouldn’t be lecturing anybody!’: Trump blasts Bush over Capitol riot remark on 9/11 (nypost.com) Ha, when Bush and Trump go at each other, everyone wins. A negative plus a negative equals a positive.
  15. Sure I can. Every single military conflict the U.S. has engaged in has been a disaster since 1945, and has never achieved its set objectives, in fact the opposite, has resulted in senseless slaughter with the enemy ultimately prevailing*. Hell, I'll go out on a limb and say that the American business community has done a far better job at achieving ideological victories that its military, I mean just check out the first McDonald's that opened in Moscow in 1991 or all the American corporations that set up shop in China in the late 1970's to the present. Heck, American businesses to this day are pushing against restrictions on Chinese trade, as I'm getting the impression that they love China more than they do the U.S. and are getting quite fed up with the American public lately. Strange times. *The Iraq War being an exception, but ultimately worse forces like ISIS operating in the region is also a massive backfire.
  16. Yup, especially since 1945 when the U.S. decided to be British Empire 2.0. Just look at the Korean War where Mao was forced to send Chinese troops into North Korea so a U.S. puppet state wasn't right on their door step....and ALL THE WAY TO MODERN TIMES where the U.S. supported Neo-Nazi's in Ukraine in order to put a puppet state right on Russia's door. The list goes on and on and on but I figure taking the first example and the latest one is sufficient for demonstrational purposes.
  17. I suppose you're probably correct, Republicans could care less about state identity or individual states rights, they just seem to want to turn the whole of the U.S. completely Red. Kind of have a hard time taking both sides seriously at this point, as they both seem to care more about national dominance than governing to help the people. Time for a new vision I guess, outside of the box. Also, I wonder if that Australian woman really believes what she's saying or if she's just hired to say such things. I know both sides have a habit of employing and paying attractive women to give their agenda a boost, as sex does sell. For instance: North Korean defector says 'even North Korea was not this nuts' after attending Ivy League school | Fox News She comes off as rather fake, and just found a way to make money by finding an audience that it willing to cater to whatever grief she has from the DPRK. I can imagine every old graying Gen-X or Boomer Fox News watching troglodyte simping the Hell out of her. ^That's North Korea, so when I hear rumors that they're all starving and have no electricity, I can't help but laugh and think the whole world is just one big propaganda machine.
  18. Tripwire President Starts Controversy by Supporting Texas Abortion Law | TechRaptor Hmmm. I have tons of hours clocked in on Red Orchestra (surprise!), and I suppose it's good that he's honest...but I'm still indifferent to the issue, and almost inclined to say it's a state issue not a federal one because from what I can see the U.S. appears to be heading towards decentralization rather than centralization. There's nothing I see indicating that the U.S. is headed towards central authority so why should I screeeeam at Texans for doing crap their own way? As long as they don't revert back to slavery I really could care less what Texans do xD
  19. Live Afghanistan updates: U.S. could work with Taliban against terrorists, Pentagon says (msn.com) How the narrative can change on a whim. The federal government is nothing if not consistent. Tucker Carlson praised the Chinese government for doing 'something virtuous' with its new restrictions on gaming and celebrity fandoms (msn.com) ...and even a broken clock is right twice a day!
  20. Whelp I would cite China's example of dealing with economic matters What’s Happening in the World Economy: China’s ‘Common Prosperity’ Pilot Zone - Bloomberg Like that^ except keep the U.S. Social Security and Food Stamp program intact. And I would suggest that the central government stop Texas from it's ass backwards abortion policy, by force if necessary but there's always that someone who will scream authoritarianism (Lion, tigers, Beijing, Moscow, oh my!) by actually having the balls to do something about long overdue issues. So the solution I guess for the U.S. would be to find more decentralized ways of dealing with issues, no? Americans seem happy when D.C. cracks the boot on foreign nations but not it's own citizens apparently.
  21. Not sure how I feel about the supreme courts decision to allow Texas to outlaw abortions. On one hand I find it morally bankrupt, on the other hand the U.S. could be moving more towards decentralization (of some form) in the near future so this could be a certain symbolic demonstration of that,. A part of me says "Just leave Texas if you don't like it".
  22. https://twitter.com/i/status/1432241425740009477 Gee what a shocker, U.S. sailors c**king to the Japanese and waiving anime girls around, to a ship sporting the flag of fascist Imperial Japan. What's next, U.S. troops stationed in Germany waving swastikas at Germans in full Waffen S.S. regalia?
  23. Afghanistan drone strike: Relative of victims speaks to BBC - BBC News Oof that ain't good, one American bomb kills 10 members of one family, including 6 children, and that's just one case that's been reported! No doubt they'd just claim it was an accident, as per U.S. Air Force custom (Pretty rare for the BBC to report such things! See my post earlier about the U.K. being seriously distraught at the U.S. over Afghanistan, I wasn't kidding.) South Korean democracy slowly eroding away - Asia Times South Korea is often portrayed as this poster child of WONDERFUL democracy and freedoom inadvertently sticking it to those godawful dreadful North Koreans (BTW I will be the first to admit that the DPRK leaves something to be desired xD) but like everything, the reality is more nuanced than what you hear. Looks like South Koreans are getting fed up with right wing crap circulating in their media and taking the proper steps. Fine by me. @BruceVC I understand, your brain is locked on Zone A sentiments, you like West and think its ideals are worth fighting for and maintaining. I also like Western values but I like the East more and just think Western civilization needs a serious overhaul and vision on how to proceed forward, because imperialism sure as Hell ain't working. Too early to gauge with certainty about Afghanistan's future but yes prior algorithms don't look favorable but I have to remain hopeful that things will work out for the better and that Zone B will be far more successful than Zone A in dealing with a group like the Taliban. The word 'Crisis' in China can be translated as "Something bad, but also with opportunity", I think that's where I'm coming from there.
