  1. Have to say this is the first time in my lifetime...

    Have to say this is the first time in my lifetime I've really had to think about it. I suppose it's the same as eg. living next to the San Andreas fault, or people living next to an active volcano....

    "He shrugged and said ”Iraq, too” under his breath. “Anyway. I’m 75,” the Republican leader added as the crowd erupted in laughter."

    I'm liking GWB more and more, especially compared to what...

    Well not really, we're likely months away from article 5 guarantees. I'm relieved the application's in, even though I don't see any short-term military threat from Russia. However, this should...

    One of the more difficult reads I've had in a while. A field study in cognitive dissonance, deeply unsettling but...

    The pro tip with a treadmill is to park it in front of a tv.

    Yeah that's not gonna happen. Not sure what the allowance is nowadays (I served 20 years ago), but I think it's still a daily allowance equal to a pack of cigarettes.



    Here it's voluntary for...

    Sweden has a decent airforce and navy, enough to make things tough for Russia. They seriously lack troops though after ending mandatory conscription some years ago. Finland still has conscription,...

    It'd probably help if people had more (real) options than us v them. I'm sure it's easy to identify with one and consider the other option to be the polar opposite, and never even consider switching...
  10. Well joining, or even just applying to join can...

    Well joining, or even just applying to join can be seen as a hostile act by Russia, there's sure to be a lot of pressure put on us during the process. Some think this is unnecessary and "we've been...

    Finland and Sweden will certainly look for security guarantees for the application process which probably takes months. Aid and supplies are a given, troops/direct military involvement likely off the...

    No official decision by either yet, but I'd say 99% certainty both will apply in May.

    What's wrong with subject matter expertise?



    They're an abomination. I though at least this would have raised suspicions about my seriousness.

    How is Japan "a particularly civilised Western country"? Like the same Japan that has tentacle pedo porn, used underwear vending machines and cheese-flavored Kitkats? What they don't have is law...

    I don't get what there is to disagree or even discuss about the slapgate. They both acted poorly, Smith more so. End of story.

    "Independent journalists do not fear their editor firing them and other consequences of truthful journalism."

    You do realize that this is at least equally true:

    "Independent journalists do not...

    Yes, and I feel this is the main issue here. All reporting has some kind of editorial bias, either political partisanship or more commonly sensationalism. There are still actual news organizations...

    Hm nope. We can have a separate discussion about how someone else sucks, this thread is about Russia. There's not a single nation on the planet that hasn't done something shitty sometime in the past.

    Yeah I was careful choosing that exact verb. Civilian casualties always happen, and are never excusable. Drone strikes to targets where civilians are killed are not justified in any way, but there's...

    No, we're just trying to stick to relevant topics. Yes, what happened in Iraq and Afghanistan was also bad. But is Ukraine a threat to the safety of the region or its own citizens? Did the West...

    The point was more like Russia probably murdered more people yesterday, Ukrainian and their own, than you can find examples of the west doing since WW2.

    Totally the same as torturing and executing a few hundred civilians in a war of conquest. It boggles my mind that you keep doubling down.



    Right, so let's just listen to this one Craig guy...

    Wait so there's one case which (I suppose?) was a false accusation of a political assassination, so we must have been brainwashed? Sergei Yushenkov, Yuri Shchekochikhin, Alexander Litvinenko, Galina...
