    "Civil war" is an overrated term. I don't want to sound pretentious, but today's America shoots enough people to fill up the ranks for a small civil war already. The real civil wars you really would wish to talk about,...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    to Heteromeles @368 The odd thing is that we do have massive conflict in terms of cyberwar I don't really witness any of so-called cyberwar, other than usual flame war between stupid people doing stupid things. The military hasn't been...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    You're assuming that US generals have any say in how these treaties are modified? Considering that US politicians are so busy with their own electoral cycle, I would judge that they bear much more responsibility than they would like to...

    Whew that was a quite a post, and I thought I only started to get up some steam. I don't know the context There's a lot of proverbial anecdotes in Russian culture, especially ones connected to historical persons. Most of...

    I'm going to become a boogeyman for saying this, but Japan and South Korea getting nuclear weapons doesn't change things. No, it does, it does matter very much now, when it's been almost 30 years after Cold War and people...

    South Korean and Japanese nuclear arsenals This is absolutely worst that can happen, but it seems like it is happening. Now, with new propositions. The nuclear war becomes real as never before. OTOH, it is a strange situation. China does...

    Since people there managed to touch upon a topic that is my professional area, I thought, it would be interesting to eliminate some illiteracy in this area and drop my own 2 lb anvil in the topic. to paws4thot @214...

    I've spent some time checking the Google history for signs of this enterprise and I found out that this "secret base" dates all the way back to 2014. (It seems Google is one real search engine that can be used...

    Property has nine piers, a helipad and enough housing to accommodate a small army So they've found the place that can host the army, but there's no army and no sign that it is owned by military. I wonder what...

    Saudis are also closely involved in certain areas in Syria, so I fully expect a titanic effort to sweep the cause under the rug ASAP. Though experts now wonder what's Turkey's game in this situation, we got to see. your...

    amal Khashoggi was the nephew of the high-profile Saudi Arabian arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi, known for his part in the Iran–Contra scandal,[14][15] who was estimated to have had a net worth of US$4 billion in the early 1980s. Adnan Khashoggi...

    My most favorite group (I do have some other favorite groups, but this is the greatest) - UK "Hybrid" ensemble - recently came up with new album, and it seems to me that they've been responding to certain worries too....

    Well, it's about politics, so that makes it political Only strictly speaking! I did not intend make any particular political statements, if only expressed a sarcastic remark. I hope Bellinghman won't get particularly upset with it - it is better...

    For that matter, there's also several gifts they left behind when they gave up on their usual business. http://tank-photographs.s3-website-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/ww1-british-mark-V-composite-hamaphrodite-tank.html http://tank-photographs.s3-website-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/ww1-british-mark-V-composite-hamaphrodite-tank-Kharkiv.html http://tank-photographs.s3-website-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/ww1-british-mark-V-composite-Russian-tank.html http://tank-photographs.s3-website-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/ww1-red-army-mark-V-female-tank.html...

    Excuse me? It is a century-old history, what's "political" or "diatribe" about that?...

    Said Grandfather apparently also snaffled an Order of St Vladimir, 2nd class If this is true, the term "snaffle" would be more than appropriate. Such high-ranked award, according to Wiki, could only be awarded to 1-3 class in "Table of...

    To put it simpler, here's a citation from Pelevin's work that illustrates an interesting interpretation of this point of view, in a short parable from "Chapayev and Void". (Did not find the source on teh internet, so here's manual translation.)...

    I was once a bit younger and pondered some about this question until I got tired of it. Consider the following, more mechanical and systemic approach. Suppose, what "you" is a neural map (hello Accelerando and friends) that considers itself...

    Indeed. While it occasionally comes up among historically aware people I don't know that anyone has seriously looked into the question. Sigh... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crisis_theory Actually they looked at it very well for the last century. In principle, the idea of market...

    The Laundry doesn't have P2 levels of behind-the-scenes influence, but there are parallels—notably their willingness to release notorious criminals in order to deploy them against the admittedly hostile regime, and their belief that they know what's best for the nation....

    to whitroth @1120 Come to think of it - average age of giving birth at some point in the past was probably around 18-20 at best, now it is closer to 30, which already makes it 30% down birth rate....

    to Pigeon @1109 Alright, I think I have confused the terms... (facepalm) I may have thought about "radically", which is actually one of the more, ahem, radical arguments pretty close to the idea. Still, I think, even gradual reduction of...
  • Commented on Do my Homework
    Is that waht I'm seeing again with my own eyes? I think we already addressed this issue, like, 400 posts ago, and here we are again. Like, erm, what the hell is it with you, people? Did you not learn...
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    Looks like Britain had quite an impression with fast-spinning things at the time, but at least one time it was good enough to work out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOGRTlrYCIE https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bouncing_bomb...

    And more useful still if people didn't post a controversial statement as "fact" with no supporting evidence. I can't see how it is a controversy, why should anybody else? What is wrong with promoting ideas through the conventional means of...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pmteh_NChOQ Modern sniper rifles are coupled with smart scopes that do automatic calculation of impact point, and similar. They take in account a weather conditions(wind, humidity and temperature, including remotely-sensed parameters), gravity, spin drift, and even the movement of a...

    It would be immeasurably more useful if people wouldn't trigger rejection reaction at something that isn't immediately falling in their world view. It is probably something popularized by modern social nets and media, but I can't really judge since I...

    just somewhat agitated I was also referring to EC and GT "agitation", for that matter. OK, it got longer than I hoped Thank you for the extended answer. I've had hard time to distinguish between some nuances. Probably it is...

    I wonder how many anglophone people really would bother to learn other languages good enough for long conversations, because I rarely even see such people on the Internet, not to talk about knowing one personally. Although I've heard one person...

    Also, the other day I was casually reviewing a history of rocket artillery and I remembered about German version of compact rocket cart that is capable of impressive firepower. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nebelwerfer Look, it even has this neat photo of Sd.Kfzf 10...
