Re: Woke

Ah, the bizarre concept of cultural appropriation. It seems little more than the way elements the left justify their destructive racist thinking. It's possibly the most disturbing development to come out of the political classes in recent years It applies to more than just white people in America u...

But then Trump's own deals were make an outrageous opening demand and then cave when he doesn't get it.

Re: After 20 years of fighting the Taliban

Trump's plan for Afghanistan, hit them hard and let them rot. https://www.newsweek.com/trump-says-us-should-have-hit-afghanistan-hard-years-ago-let-it-rot-1624588 I guess nation destroying is better than nation building, because it's easier. But then Trump invited the Taliban to Camp David and negot...

Re: After 20 years of fighting the Taliban

Democratically elected governments don't always result in the people making good choices and some remain in power without having another election that would remove them. Hitler, Abbas of the Palestinian Authority, and Hamas were all election winners with the last two never allowing another vote. Tr...

Re: After 20 years of fighting the Taliban

Unlike the Vietnam Conflict, the "Korean War," and the fighting with the Indians, the Afghanistan War was legally granted by the US Congress as a war.

Re: After 20 years of fighting the Taliban

The US is entering a Civil War with an us (Trump supporter) versus them (all others that don't support Trump). Much like the last Civil War, you have two sides that can't agree and are blocking the other side's agenda. Instead of resolving this with discussions and voting, you are having the Trump s...

Re: After 20 years of fighting the Taliban

Thelongest war by the US is ended to a fanatical group 9in Afghanistan. Now a new one is breaking out in the US with fanatical Trump supporters rewriting history. Trump is denying blame for not planning a withdrawal and his treaty with the Taliban didn't encourage them.

Re: After 20 years of fighting the Taliban

You first point was that the Afghan military acted like mercenaries, and it was complete nonsense built on a foundation of ignorance. This is an extremely valid point in that soldiers at the local level were reportedly selling their weapons to the Taliban last year. Also soldiers were abandoning th...

Re: After 20 years of fighting the Taliban

Donald Trump will be furious he didn't use the same contractor the Greek government has hired. 25+ miles of new wall springing up in just a few days. A lot better than the orange fuckwit managed. But that contractor wasn't donating to Trump and/or the Republican Party. That's why the US got such in...

Re: After 20 years of fighting the Taliban

The Taliban have been negotiating with China and now want the rest of the world to let them do what they want inside their borders in return for not exporting terrorism. So a return to what they had 20 yers ago.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-calls- ... 00665.html

Trump calls for VP Harris to become president. I guess Trump really wasn't paying attention during all the classes that discussed the constitution, because if Biden leaves office it doesn't make Trump president.

Re: After 20 years of fighting the Taliban

Yeah, Biden's really taken the opportunity to make America look weak and run with it. American democracy is at a painfully low ebb. From the ineffective to the insane to the incapable. Biden honored the negotiated Trump truce with the Taliban. Trump agreed to withdraw most of the troops by May 1. B...

I can confirm from a few hours ago, that a different player has to open a game after all players have readied their moves for it to advance. In the Retreat phase there was only one player with a move and after it was readied, I as a different player open the game. It showed all players readied and w...

This who entered by plane and overstayed a visa becoming 'illegal' were not affected.
That's because US immigration policy give preferred status to illegals that arrive, "by land," meaning by boat and plane over those who use other means. It is seen mostly in Florida.

I know from a few weeks ago that it definitely didn't process unless another player looks at the board after everyone else has readied their orders. I was sole retreat order and no matter how many times I looked and not ready/ready order it wouldn't update until the full time had passed. It still se...
