There was no stalemate in Afghanistan; the US won the war pretty quickly. The US had problems with the occupation that comes after. Russia is nowhere near that point.

@HorsesandMuchMOAR
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is simply a repeat of the USA’s invasion of Afghanistan: a bloody stalemate which will drag on with no real progress.
The ONLY difference is that the international community didn’t boycott and place sanctions on the USA like they should have.
lmao, no, not even remotely close

A young (14) girl in Arizona was denied getting her methotrexate prescription filled for debilitating arthritis because, in high doses, the drug can be used to terminate pregnancies.
It is also used in treatments for cancer, severe inflammation, and other lifesaving uses.
While she was eventually able to get her prescription filled, the delay could have been costly given the continual damage arthritis can do. Even worse, imagine a patient with chronic inflammation of the heart being denied this? Even for a day?
These are the horrible ramifications of the end of Roe vs. Wade.
Where has that one user been, the one that kept assuring us over and over that the dangers of Roe falling were overblown and that this was really a good thing? I’d like to ask them if they could look into a child’s eyes and tell them they won’t be getting their medicine today? Or worse, could they stand there being a parent and hearing the same?
This is the hill you chose to die on. Hope the blood keeps the grass all nice and green for you.

In the latest “Face Eating Leopards” news, Trump is suing CNN for nearly a half billion due to them hurting his fee-fees.
That rightward shift is sure working out huh CNN?

Got to love when people chanting pro-life are knowing making people suffer and die with no pity and no good excuse. Almost like their version of “pro-life” just means anti-women.

This shit is what made me realize how terrible the right is (at least in the USA, I don’t keep up with the rest of the world).

@Natry
Fair point; the USA should’ve been sanctioned for invading Iraq as well. And to add insult to injury Iraq was actually more stable under Saddam Hussein’s leadership than under the US occupation.
Also I would strongly disagree with the USA “winning” the war. There was still terrible fighting and chaos when they left Afghanistan.

Nevermind the fact Saddam was a war criminal (with his sons as cohorts) and he would’ve never stood trial for them had he not been caught.

The Taliban was never the internationally recognized government of Afghanistan. Their seat in the UN belonged to the Northern Alliance, and the Alliance had no reason to object to U.S. intervention.
@lonewolf
Saddam was on the wrong end of multiple UN Security Council resolutions, backed by the threat of military action. Maybe the U.S. was too quick to move in, but let’s not pretend he was a member of the international community in good standing.

Stupidity should be a crime. Someone with better foresight than me should work on the details, but someone shooting a husky thinking it was a wolf and not taking accountability should be illegal. That’s dangerous levels of stupidity that will cause her to continue to more harm later on.

Well, I keep hearing these days the call for Germany to take a leadership role (regarding the war in Ukraine). And that Poland demands reparations from us, although these have already been negotiated by treaty. What are your thoughts about that? I would be interested to know. ;-)

@DarkObsidian
Poland demanding reparations now is like the grandson of the man your abusive grandfather killed demanding money from you.
As for taking a “leadership position”
  1. Germany has a not so great recent history with the whole “wars in Europe” thing, that the population and everyone else is apprehensive of
  2. The previous conservative government and its backers are still busy cleaning Putin’s cum off their shirts and don’t want to speak up
  3. The current mish-mash government is made up of historically peacnik types and war just doesn’t vibe with their voters

Okay, I’m smirking now, but for different reasons. And yes, the current German government, however you want to see it and/or support it, is really a mish-mash. Or Mischmasch, as we Germans say. Always funny how much English deals with the c. I’d love to hear other opinions, unless there are more pressing matters being discussed here. But I am well aware that this thread belongs primarily to the American political course ;-)

New Baltic gas pipeline operational
This new one pretty much replaces the Nord ones which means Putler has lost all leverage on that front now. And of course if he tried to sabotage it that would be an instant NATO Article 5.
As mentioned before Putler attacking a supply base in Poland would be an Article 5, and would result in NATO getting directly involved, and possibly lead to WW3. But if Poland gets into this nuclear sharing program, all bets will be off on Putler using nukes. Both Poland and Ukraine are already preparing for nuclear attacks by making bunkers and passing out iodide tablets.
This isn’t looking good.

Russia has one tooth and is already biting way more than they can chew.

As Smiling said, the Poland part is way too late and just them being an ass. Even if it wasn’t so late, that type of thinking is what led to WWII in the first place.

Reading is fine. it’s only when i open my mouth i have responsibility to others.
I do seek help. Lets not talk about that here. The worst thing that can happen is someone can call me stupid and I’ll do something else, I don’t get in cycles of explosive unchecked behavior. Well worst can happen, and I know that, and knowing better is a big responsibility.
There is plenty of shit to do. Nothing wrong with doing literally anything else.
I thought you where referencing fallout.
@Meanlucario
I don’t think it will be locked. People have a right and sometimes a duty to politics. I would say a keyboard is always safer than a gun, but I’m not sure about that. Some disease is transmittable through human speech.
Mods are unpaid human resource workers, and some of the few that do it for altruistic reasons. I would listen to them by default even if I had another opinion. They will keep the place from being closed.

I actually have never played it. The apocalyptic genre never worked for me. I was always much more invested in games like Asheron’s Call … that’s where all my friends were, too, so I never even tried Fallout or other games in that set.
Plus we were too busy killing each other in Marathon around that time, if I recall correctly. That or Quake.
I did play GURPS roleplaying games, so I’m familiar with some of the mechanics, but the story line never grabbed me.
And for the rest of the stuff, you seem fine. People who can articulate their issues are rarely the problem.

TLDR bullet points:
  1. Russia overextended.
  2. Ukraine has all the morale and motivation, Russians don’t even know why they’re fighting.
  3. After the annexation of Crimea a few years back, NATO has been training Ukraine. In only a few short years they went from a pushover to the gigachads they are now.
  4. Russia is still stuck in the WW1 era of military tactics. They aren’t fighting trench warfare anymore, but they still have a very strict command structure where the generals operate on the frontlines. This means they are vulnerable to getting shot.
    4b) Russia does not encourage free thinking in its underlings. So when a general gets whacked the entire battalion falls into disarray. Even now, as generals are hightailing it to the backlines as a Russian general is now an endangered species, the troops up front still rely entirely on their orders and are left derpfaced until a general calls in to tell them to do something.
