  1. Is there any reliable estimation of how much ISI invested into the Taliban? I'm really curious what the spending ratio was compared to US funding ANA.
  2. Some analysts counted on that army to resist for 6 months but no more. If defeat was inevitable, you can't blame them for not wanting to die in an attempt to meet foreigner hold-out quota.
  3. So Taliban has reached Kabul and 'peaceful transition of power' discussions are on-going. Talk about a massive house of cards.
  4. That history book would show Poland to be effectively isolated since the 18th century so not much changes there. But maybe we could stop calling that parasitic relationship an 'alliance'.
  5. Better yet - a sphere. When sun sends its photons...
  6. So details of Nord Stream 2 deal are starting to emerge. So far it looks like a big loss to Ukraine and substantial win for Germany. There is the usual lip service of assurances but they are hopelessly vague with no mechanism to force Germany into anything.
  7. Protasevich is not Khashoggi. Not that it makes the act any less heavy-handed, but he was nabbed over the news-site he run not some criticism. I bet hundreds of names are being extracted from him and his hardware at this very moment.
  8. Affording is really rarely the issue in the developed countries. Few in the middle-class are about to starve for having to take care for an extra kid or two.
  9. That was inevitable. What's really interesting is if Germany will give Biden a face-saver over this.
  10. More like a lifelong mental health sufferer. Some of his posts about attempting time-travel and allowing 'wemen to have multiple organisms' can still be found online.
  11. That's all nice and well but that's just a legalistic argument. Courts may declare themselves fit to decide on what the right emission targets are. But they cannot set those targets or means of reaching them.
  12. Stadia. At least so the rumor goes.
  13. Another 25GB patch and machine gun attachments are still bugged. At this point I'm pretty sure this game is never getting fixed.
  14. You do know that Polish liberals are even tougher on Russia? Issues like Belarus or Navalny matter to them more than to the current government which just maintains it's hate/envy/emulate attitude.
  15. Couldn't they have a wrestling match instead? Preferably on the top of an active volcano.
  16. If you go full stealth this fight can be a nightmare. I only beat it thanks to a random wrench I had in inventory.
  17. So for 7 years Rockstar's cash cow could have been loading 3 times faster? So much for the notion that money buys at least some support.
  18. And all code got sold. Wonder how long until Chinese take on Cyberpunk and Witcher emerges. They could be just passionate about gaming you know.
  19. Almost everyone. Navalny would have emerged better off then before.
  20. Just like most fusion based ideas. But it might be viable in a century or so.
  21. 5GB patch on steam and the only fix I noticed was duplicated dialog entry removal. What made them think they could ever pull off a multiplayer version?
  22. Not even ESA has that. It may technically be possible but associated costs would be ruinous for commercial ventures.
  23. If porn mode in browser doesn't work you can try the amp link.
  24. Schrier's take is finally up. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-01-16/cyberpunk-2077-what-caused-the-video-game-s-disastrous-rollout?__twitter_impression=true
  25. They needed a roadmap to show that patches and free DLCs will be released within a year. Now that is concerning.
