  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    whitroth @ 949: Hmmm, wonder how much the invasion of Iraq was a "message" to Saudi Arabia, of "do not fuck with us". Probably a good deal less than the desire to establish US bases in the region outside of...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    whitroth @ 948: The invasion and "conquest" of Iraq... would NEVER have been a short victorious war. Anyone with half a brain would have known that. It's a problem that comes from believing for your own propaganda. You get a...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Greg Tingey @ 886: The "Wail" is the Daily Mail, also called the Daily Hate & Daily Nazi ... Thank you. I've updated my annotation....
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Greg Tingey 874: Ironically, Iraq COULD have been a success, IF the military's plans for a "proper" occupation had been followed ( As per 1945 in Germany ) rather than the utter fuck-up proposed by the "neoliberals" - but we've...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Pigeon @ 857: "Sun readers don't care who runs the country as long as she's got big tits." The Wail, the Scum and the All-Stations-Stopper are quite useful in a way. For avoiding distractions. If anyone cites them in an...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Ioan @ 830: The number of active duty troops has fallen since the end of the Cold War and remained constant. Note that the numbers below don't include the national guard or mercenaries such as Blackwater. Thanks for putting the...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Heteromeles @ 823: Apparently, the SEALs (and who knows who else) regularly get tours doing stuff on CIA Omega teams, and when this happens they disappear off military payrolls. When missions are over, they're reinstated without any debriefs, because that...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    SFreader @ 780: Re: ' ... suggesting that the CIA/SIS are an order of magnitude more effective at ' Butting in for a sec ... Have had difficulty believing that the CIA/SIS are at all effective at spotting political/national security...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    This is completely off topic, but I think worth sharing. There's a little girl in Miami, FL, USA who needs blood donors of a specific rare type to support her while she undergoes treatment for a rare type of cancer....
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Troutwaxer @ 689: Regardless of whether Brexit was caused by Russian interference, American interference, or some combination of the two, the ground was only fertile for such interference because of "ignorance and racism." Once again, both the UK and US...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Ioan @ 676: On a different topic, let's look at what Iran's been doing: ... Are those subs significant, or an insignificant development? Take a look at a map of the Persian Gulf. Note that 75% of Saudi Arabia's oil...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    whitroth @ 651: And here I thought he'd already picked out his dacha on the Black Wea, or maybe it's in Saudi Arabia.... I dunno' Do either of them have extradition treaties with the US?...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    CharlerK @ 592: So a union of the English-speaking peoples is obviously out, a racist, exclusionary, backwards-looking federation. But ditch the USA and build off the existing Commonwealth. Now here is a world spanning super-nation with a population(2.3 billion) larger...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    RonaldP @ 588: No, you have to file a tax return because Intuit and the like want to keep taking your money. There have been efforts to reduce filing to the IRS asking you if this information is correct (we...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Elderly Cynic @ 576: Well, that's your opinion. Has the committee (or House) repudiated it or chosen a new chairman? Without any such action, they have tacitly authorised it, post hoc. That's standard procedure. It wouldn't surprise me if it...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Only about 15% of American Tories (note spelling) emigrated after the American Revolution. And 10% of that number (1.5% of the total) later returned to the U.S....
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Elderly Cynic @ 558: And it may have been mistaken, but I assuredly saw a reference to a report from Congress (I can't remember which house) that pooh-poohed Russian involvement. Congressman Devin Nunes, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee issued...
  • Commented on Typo Hunt: The Labyrinth Index
    Joern Wilms @ 36: p.91: (this might be an intentional thing, though): "Reagan International" does not exist, as Reagan National Airport (DCA) only serves US-destinations (or destinations with US pre-clearance facilities), international flights to Washington DC go either into Dulles...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Elderly Cynic @ 532: The reason that Germany and Merkel aren't reacting the way that you think is that they know damn well that Troutwaxer's theory is false, as I have posted before. Both Parliament and Congress have produced reports...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Clarify something for me please. There's been some suggestion it was American Billionaires who funded the Brexit campaign rather than the Russians. I know what the plausible motive for the Russians interfering in the Brexit campaign would be, but what...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    SFreader @ 469: Enter: HRM QE2 Under the impression that the Queen still has the authority to dissolve Parliament. If yes, then if no progress has been made on Brexit by Xmas, Her annual Xmas message will include a gift...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    julian.bond @ 456: I'm reminded again that what North Americans mean by "liberal" and "Liberals" and what people from the UK mean, are two entirely different things. That doesn't mean that either side is wrong, per se. Just that they're...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Heteromeles @ 447: Interesting. As I understand it, the current US President only did business with the Deutsche Bank Private Bank, because he burned so many commercial lenders that they (along with the Russians) were among the only to bankroll...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Erwin @ 443: Now, wait for the economic downturn in the US. (2019ish). Republican approval plummets with the falling economy. A gigantic blue wave crashes in. The now-ex-president, and great friend of Farage, moves to London - touting England as...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Oggie Ben Doggie @ 436: NATO led military coup. Natural disasters regularly force regions of the United States to allow the National Guard to take over and make the distribution of necessaries a matter of military logistics rather than market...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Heteromeles @ 429: I'm not missing the 1% and contrived separation bit at all. What I'm pointing to--again--is the pernicious nature of the separation. When people are divided along "ethnic" lines (and note that there's little genetic evidence for ethnicities,...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    whitroth @ 423: Whyat, you, too? Come on, *warn* me before you write things like this. Luckily, I'd already finished my tea before I read it.... Um, my folks were part of the "folk scare" of the fifties. I *really*...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Heteromeles @ 375; Graydon @ 376; _Moz_ @ 381: I think y'all are missing something. Much of the racism in the U.S. is a result of deliberate policy by power/privilege elites. It's intended to keep ALL lower classes - white,...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Robert Prior @ 402: I didn't mean he wrote it, I meant he was singing it.I suggested it because you were talking about reclaiming the colour red. That wasn't me. It was someone else, but I'm too lazy to scroll...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    MSB @ 391: I have some bad news for all you people contemplating a merger between either the UK and Germany or the US and Germany: Drat! ... and I betcha France will have some lame excuse for not...
