Re: Chaos in USA

What Hollywood wants quietly forgotten is that the proper set firearms safety guy was fired a few days before by the director because safety guy wanted major changes made to the way firearms were being handled on set. So the director picked on some random crew person to fill in, and the rest followe...

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread VI

I just don’t see it as a necessity.
Amazing what is given away unintentionally.

It's a free country.
Things don't have to be a necessity to be allowed.
Indeed, the opposite is the case. You are supposed to have a d@mn good reason to restrict anything at all.

Re: Millions of us might be **** if we ignore the Russian-Ukraine war

The fuzing mechanisms on SAMs are designed to activate on fighter-sized targets as a minimum. As we can clearly see, the missile guidance does put the missile well within normal fuzing range, but the missile does not go "Bang!" For those without weapons training, the short answer is that using SAMs ...

NEW: Three Biden officials directly involved in his re-election tell @nbcnews
his chances of winning are zero.

“He needs to drop out,” one Biden campaign official said. “He will never recover from this.”

Re: Tragic road accident kills Ryanair pilots

Even 35 years ago, chucking Tornados around. I regarded the biggest threat to my existence as an inattentive truck driver. I have bailed off roads for the night, slept in the vehicle, even turned up on the doorstep of ex-girlfriends and pleaded, rather than stay on roads with inattentive drivers. It...

Indeed you already have it real bad, and whatever happens it will get worse.

Re: Chaos in USA

The polls are showing a continuing hemorrhaging of the vote for Biden.. ..and yet most of the US media has now swung back to dismissing concerns about Biden, and attacking Trump. Trump has found the perfect environment to avoid the press, he's playing golf daily. On the betting odds, the Democratic ...

Not to be outdone, the Ukrainians have a new surface-air weapon against Russian drones...which appears to work!

Re: Millions of us might be **** if we ignore the Russian-Ukraine war

I see that illegals have been chucking improvised spears through the Poland-Belarus border fence, and one Polish border guard is dead. putin is obviously behind this, as we've seen with illegals on other borders. He clearly thinks more attacks will lead to more appetite for compromise among Ukraine'...

Re: Millions of us might be **** if we ignore the Russian-Ukraine war

To anyone with half a brain, pussy-footing time was over two years ago. But the average western leader has far less than half. So, what will actually induce them to lift weapons restrictions and increase supplies substantially? If it isn't a publicity dream excuse like a hospital bombing, and clearl...

..and yet China still holds Most Favoured Nation trading status in the US. Presumably this is what the communique alludes to, but I do not detect any willingness on the part of the US to actually change this. From the tone of the Chinese reply, which is about as close as diplomats get to "Foxtrot Os...

The Russian offensives grinding to a halt is not the point. This was always going to happen, and occupation of more ground wasn't the point.
