Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

And so it's okay for us to kill terrorists without due process, but it's not okay for Putin to do it, and the only reason most people don't see any contradiction here is because they believe anything their television tells them. You don’t have to go all ad hominem on everyone who doesn’t share your...

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

We are butchers, for sure. Although we don’t kill our own people overseas with polonium or novichok. I would take those "reports" with a grain of salt. Similar to the reports in Syria of Assad gassing his own people, which seem very likely to have been invented propaganda. As I recall, Obama assass...

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

Yes, and also pitiful that this this so-called news report gets reposted here as if it adds anything of value to the conversation. People should use a little thought before they repost stuff. If it's obviously propaganda, or has a high likelihood of being propaganda, then just don't repost it and am...

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

So, you think the German people would turn to a raving lunatic madman and let him kill millions of Jews and others if those German people hadn't been made the unjustified scapegoats of WW1? It seems unlikely to me. If the peace treaty at the end of WW1 had been a bit more gracious, those German peo...

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

Thanks for your posts, Silent Majority. I agree with everything you said, including about liking Grigor Dimitrov. He's one of the most likable on the ATP and maybe one of the most talented. Sometimes I think he's too nice to maximize his talent. I got to see him play live in San Diego last year. Hi...

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

The situation after the end of the Cold War and break up of the Soviet Union is reminiscent of the time after WW1 when the allies forced a terrible treaty onto Germany. If the allies had been more gracious in their victory and not forced brutal reparations onto Germany, who was by no means the only...

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

The media have been pounding it down our throats since 2016 that Russia is the big bad guy that we have to fight. It's always something. Once they saw that the war on terror was winding down they had to find another bogeyman to keep everyone scared and keep the money flowing to the military industri...

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

Question 1: Why did every country up to Russia's border want to be in NATO? Answer: Because they have a historically imperialist power on their borders that has offensively attacked them going back three centuries with the latest being in current memory. Not to mention what Russians did to their pe...

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

It works both ways though doesn't it. The Russians have been attacked from their west several times before and had huge numbers of casualties in the process. They have little reason to respect promises from European countries. So, I guess what you are saying is that the US wouldn't push back if an e...

Not going to do Covid 2 on this thread. Appreciate Krieg’s writing. The S men are factually incorrect, lying and/or totally deluded. All we’re doing here now is providing a platform for Russian or hard right American propaganda. I’m out. #NAFOfella I'm an American, not Russian, and not even close t...

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

The poisoning story on its face is stupid. I'm pretty sure if Putin wanted you dead, you'd be dead, not wandering around Europe claiming that you had been poisoned with some esoteric isotope that sounds like it should be in a spy novel. I could be wrong, but it just sounds like the kind of story som...

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

The fact is, you invade a country for no reason other than you want to there's a price to be paid and you're going to get international pushback. Russia didn't invade Ukraine simply because it wanted to. Russia invaded Ukraine to protect Russian people who were being attacked there and to prevent N...

I'm with you 1,000% Mr. Kriegspiel, and I thank you for your well reasoned posts on this matter. We promised not to push NATO eastward when the Soviet Union broke up, and yet we've done nothing else over the last 30 years, despite wise US advisers saying that it's provocative. So many people like to...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Check out the safety studies for the vaccines, even the ones that have been fully approved. The safety studies won't end until 2026 -- yes five years in the future. Which of course stands to reason -- how else could long-term side effects be studied? Anyone who is letting their children get vaccinat...

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

Wasn't it the case that hospitals got more money from the government if a death was listed as Covid related? So wasn't there also a financial incentive to fudge the numbers?

Re: Political Humor and Satire

How many people will see that Lego meme and then think that the people who wandered into the Capitol really were carrying guns? Greater than 50% wouldn't surprise me.
