  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    Since 1837 actually .... Or certainly since 6/2/1952. Sorry, snark should carry the implied * *Accuracy alway limited by snottiness....
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    I am baffled Yes, I know....
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    Double sigh... My strawman has a heart, actually. If Chiang's government had held mainland China, the situation you describe never would have come up, so yes, it did come down to Mao owning Beijing. And even then, it took 22...

    "you're arguing it" Sigh. You can hold onto the sherry. Take a bath, though....
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    I think you are missing the point... and quite spectacularly so, I must say. Such a cliché rhetorical response: "You just don't understand my point! How shallow of you!" No, I understood the point and the slightly whiffy (such BO!)...
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    As for losing the Security Council seat, it's not going to happen in the short-medium term. Britain (as can all permanent members) can veto any resolution to remove them as a permanent member. I must remember to tell that to...
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    I think you have to separate the verbiage from the actions. For example, Trump wurfled about before the inauguration about US China policy and took a call from the Taiwan president, much to everyone's horror. But since he's been in...
  • Commented on Sometimes I don't know why I bother!
    Since someone has already taken Mad Jack Churchill (who topped out at Lt Col, not General), I'll throw in Adrian Carton de Wiart, who, among other things, bit his own wounded fingers off when the doctor refused to amputate, and...
  • Commented on Bad puppies, no awards
    The US state of Nevada has something like this and voted 'No Governor' recently I'm going to need a citation for that as 1) I don't believe it, and 2) I couldn't find anything like with an (admittedly cursory)...
  • Commented on Bad puppies, no awards
    Okay ... and aside from uber competence, do his characters have any ... you know ... humanity? Early on (in the first few Honor Harrington books), Weber seemed to be using CS Forester (Horatio Hornblower) as his character development...
  • Commented on Bad puppies, no awards
    You are creating straw men. I shall respond to correct your misrepresentations, but not do so further. That you seem not to understand my point is not the same thing as it being a straw man. I know white males...
  • Commented on Bad puppies, no awards
    Yes you do. Or should see them if you look. The ratios are different but they are definitely there. In non trivial numbers. You're not understanding the discussion (Elderly Cynic isn't, either). Whites don't get systematic mistreatment BECAUSE OF...
  • Commented on Bad puppies, no awards
    That last sentence is a gross exaggeration, and would deny most oppressions throughout history. No, it's not, and no, it wouldn't. Your comment strongly suggests that you have no idea what you're talking about, and no idea the points that...
  • Commented on Bad puppies, no awards
    I have encountered that, as both an employee and manager, though I accept that there are relatively few circumstances under which it happens Yeah, no. "Oppression" isn't a "few circumstances under which it happens" it's a systemic and societal problem....
  • Commented on Bad puppies, no awards
    As long as it truly is equal opportunities for everybody, and not "well, let's bias it against the establishment because they've had it good for so long" as seen at many of the US universities that instituted "affirmative action",...
  • Commented on The morning after
    It's just amusing to compare and contrast that reaction with the wailing, gnashing of teeth, and claims of mass disengagement following the slight decline in the formal vote at the last Australian federal election to about the same level as...
  • Commented on The morning after
    I have to say, as an Australian, I found it absolutely adorable that some media outlet was describing an ~89% turnout in Edinburgh as ‘huge’ on Twitter. Wait, you think that having a law requiring voting makes you superior? How...
