  1. Syria Truth Finally Hits US MSM

    what does it matter? i mean of course it matters, but what is going to change? not a thing. how many times can they rinse and repeat? Answer = ad infinitum. this is basically them rubbing it in our face. if it wasn't... then it doesn't make it to MSM.
  2. lol. wait 'till you get the bill from the old orange turd. what's the bet you'll just look the other way.
  3. i was about to say the exact same. there's no stopping this. apathy is a horrible affliction; and we all got some.
  4. Our 3 Year Anniversary of COP

    congrats, people.
  5. dude. i don't know what is true and what isn't. so my thoughts generally drop somewhere in the middle of what each respective "side" is saying. i'll revise what i think after i see evidence. i examined the strike pictures last year and... that incident didn't seem to indicate (to me) thousands of lbs had hit much. so either they fired empties, or they were interdicted. logic, no? do you think we practice propaganda? do you think "our" side could intercept their stuff? and if you do, why is it so hard to think they have the same ability.
  6. one reason could be.. perhaps... you don't ever want to play your cards before you actually have to. so for instance if the U.S. are keen to know the true capability of a certain system... the best way to achieve that is run a probe. so you fly stuff in and see what lights up. from that you learn things. so i dunno. maybe they didn't arc up because they're not stupid. as for effectiveness. IF they did take down 71 of 103... with older shit... that's not too bad at all.

  8. even if that were true--which it isn't--but even if it were... lolz.. what kind of idiot can't protect what is his!? fact is there has been a piggy back off of each other. one develops something and the other looks at it, and says "smart idea, let's develop that". that is the nature of warfare. a game of one-upmanship. here's the thing. both Russia and America took in some curious people after ww2. that's where nearly all of the development came from. #Germans. annnnnd some may even suggest that the germans were given their guidance from someone even smarter. ;o)
  9. when you don't own the airspace where all your guys are trying to move around... you get to experience what those camel jockey dudes have been dealing with. they've been walking around feeling like gods in places like afghanistan and iraq. imagine what's going to happen to them mentally when it is their position that is having 2000lbs dropped on it.
  10. Death threats and insane people

    is AE still going? see that's strange to me. i thought Elaine had health issues and was nearly homeless. been a few years since i've been there.
  11. well. as it turns out... that shit is not the holy grail everyone has been led to believe either Study questions reliability of fingerprint evidence https://www.theguardian.com/science/2007/mar/23/crime.penal
  12. Paycheck Changes If You Make 20K to 269K

    you are free. free to do as you're told. or else. very similar in my "lucky country". $1 – $18,200 -- Nil0% $18,201 – $37,000 -- 19c for each $1 over $18,2000 – 9.65% $37,001 – $87,000 -- $3,572 plus 32.5c for each $1 over $37,0009.65 – 22.78% $87,001 – $180,000 -- $19,822 plus 37c for each $1 over $87,00022.78 – 30.13% $180,001 and over -- $54,232 plus 45c for each $1 over $180,000 -- 30.13 – less than 45% plus the other stuff. GST and levies n'such. in all there are somewhere between 125 and 259 different taxes to be paid, dependent upon your situation. (http://taxreview.treasury.gov.au/content/paper.aspx?doc=html/publications/papers/report/section_2-03.htm) and that is the reason they can't have an properly educated, and well armed population. that wouldn't help them at all. bit of potential for that to go sideways on 'em. much easier to thieve from someone when you don't have to worry about them shooting you in the face.
