Re: Betrayal Blues

I miss playing the game in person where when I got stabbed I could deprive the stabber of the pleasure after the first thrust. I'd identify where he could go next as I withdrew to throw all my remaining forces at his new ally. Thereby making this new alliance shaky as his weak partner became stronge...

Re: War, what is it good for?

Putin knows, from doing it repeatedly, that the Western countries will soon return to accepting him no matter how egregious the acts of war. He's invaded and got to keep pieces from other countries, shot down a commercial airplane, and assassinated enemies in their countries. Russia isn't some third...

Re: Nuclear power: yes or no?

A fun fact on nuclear power stations that isn't widely talked about is their environmental impact. The cooling systems suck in and kill fish. Lots of fish. Millions and millions of fish every year. This is true of regular buildings. For instance Trump's hotel and tower in Chicago takes in water and...

Re: Minting Trillion Dollar Coins

First the Treasury and Biden oppose minting a trillion dollar coin. Second it causes inflation and devalues the US currency by increasing the amount of currency even if not circulated. Third it encourages even more wasteful spending because Congress can keep spending if they can always have more mon...

Re: Conservative men most open minded and tolerant

You don't believe that how you choose the person you wish to share your life with is the surest indicator of open mindedness and tolerance?

Re: After 20 years of fighting the Taliban

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.

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...
