Re: End of the INF & consequences

Putin has made a dead man switch Actually, the Perimetr system existed before Putin. It was created during Soviet times. Also note that most if not all nuclear powers have equivalent systems, designed to ensure that the national leader can be swiftly replaced in case a surprise attack disables him,...

Sertorio,

Actually he is Chinese Singaporean. I don’t approve of his lifestyle. Nor his politics.

He says he will go for baptism when he is about to die. Meanwhile he intends to carry on his sinful lifestyle.
Hedonistic, yes. But who determines what is a "sinful lifestyle?"

Sell Montana to Canada

https://nypost.com/2019/02/20/petition-calls-for-us-to-sell-montana-to-canada-for-1t-to-help-pay-off-national-debt/ Why not? Theys same as us. I'm sure they would like and maintain some of my old hang-outs there. One problem - the (former) Americans would have to acquire a taste for the Canadian nat...

Re: RIP Lyndon LaRouche

Any involvement David Goldman has had with LaRouche is going to be like that yarn that begins with An Irishman At The Bar that turns to the man next to him and says, "You see this bar? I built this bar with my own two hands ...">.... It's my understanding that Spengler is one of the suspects in an ...

Re: RIP Lyndon LaRouche

Lyndon LaRouche is dead at 96. For those of you lucky enough to have no idea who he is, imagine if the choice cuts of Jordan Peterson, Alex Jones, David Miscavige, and the platonic ideal of a Bernie Bro were put into a blender, then filtered through a philosophy degree. He ran for president eight t...

Re: The US and Europe

"Why in heavens would Germany want to intervene in Syria?..." (Sertorio) Yes, why indeed? The question came up as a response to Angela's stated opposition to the withdrawal of American forces from there. Some of us wonder that if she considers it so important to have a few thousand "Western" troops ...

Re: The US and Europe

Again with the "grossly underfunded" German army, neverfail? You obviously did not check out this link, posted earlier. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bundeswehr "As of 31 December 2018, the Bundeswehr had a strength of 181,274 active soldiers."

Re: The US and Europe

So Again why doesn't Merkel send a few thousand troops to the ME? This is presuming that Merkel has the troops fully trained, equipped and ready to go. Not a guaranttee as I believe that the german army has for years been grossly underfunded and is rather run down. Presuming that Merkel (and German...
