Re: Australia leads in foreign aid in Pacific, USA lags behind China

The US journalist Brooks recently made an interesting comment about Trump, describing Trump as micro tough, but macro soft. Trump has been gabbling about China's growing power for quite some time. Does freedom of navigation in the South China Sea ring any bells Leon ??

Re: Expanding universe

Does God know about this stuff Octavious our Oracle ? There's no guidance on co~mingling Galaxies in either the Bible ( Catholic, Protestant or Mormon ) or Koran. Maybe those heretical Scientologists have some Divine advice on the topic ?

Re: The Elephant In My Room

I'm not sure what Prince Vilhelm means by forcing the opponent to play a game he doesn't enjoy. I will refer to my controversial actions in a game when I did not make a mistake in orders, but did mistakenly attribute more honour to a player than they actually possessed. Other players in that game in...

Re: Suggestions and Pricing for making a good gaming computer

I've got an old NCR "tower" series Server with quad processors that runs Unix software in my "tools & technology museum"..... Not for sale, but I wonder if that might be "game ready" ???

Re: Australia leads in foreign aid in Pacific, USA lags behind China

Japan also gives more in foreign aid in the Pacific than the USA. So Japan, New Zealand and Australia each invest more in foreign aid in the Pacific than the USA. China's "foreign aid" in the Pacific is about 80% "low interest loans" and is clearly an "entrapment in debt" strategy. Daffy Donald Trum...

Re: Australia leads in foreign aid in Pacific, USA lags behind China

I think even New Zealand delivers more foreign aid in the Pacific than the USA. The USA, one of the richest nations in the world, outspent in foreign aid in the Pacific by two much smaller nations & it's partners in the ANZUS alliance.

Re: Australia leads in foreign aid in Pacific, USA lags behind China

Australia should increase our Foreign Aid, not continue to decrease it. But the USA is just not delivering the foreign aid in the Pacific that it should if it wants to counter China's growing influence. Trump only seems to have a strategy of "sabre rattling" with trade tariffs and military threats. ...

Australia leads in foreign aid in Pacific, USA lags behind China

The Lowy Insitute has released it's analysis of foreign aid in the Pacific. China is using foreign aid, but also "loans" to Pacific nations to increase it's influence in the Pacific. Despite the decline in Australian foreign aid, it clearly gives far more in foreign aid in the Pacific than China and...

Might life imitate art & at some future time a stranded astronaut dig up the parked Mars Curiosity Rover & after dusting it off use it to call home ? How many candles should be on the birthday cake ?

Shoe fleas ? Do fleas in flea circuses require shoes ?

Re: Neo Nazi America a step closer

"Because "shoo flee" makes no sense at all" It was posted by sweetypie ssssorrennn. Why do you expect it to be logical or rational ? That expectation, imho, also makes little sense. If you want any reasonable degree of rationality, or logic, or wisdom in posts you read, then might I suggest that you...

Re: NHS, Britain’s National Heath Service

I think the creation of the UK's NHS has to be understood in it's historical context. The experiences of post WW1 Britain influenced the way they approached the post WW2 period, I think there was a strong collective desire to create a better society "for all". It can also be argued that there are na...
