  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    to JH @1161: nd conduct policies that lead to significant minorities of the population in Ukraine, Crimea and other places to welcome Hitler's armies. Now this is when it got on my patience again and I decided to write another...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    to Elderly Cynic @1107: The concerted attempt to destroy western democracy (such as it was, let alone is) dates from well before Putin's rise to power and, even today, the VAST majority of the influence comes from people and organisations...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    to Troutwaxer @1060: If you're showing something like 15-percent of the population as "recidivists" (or whatever) you're failing to note that subversive or violent actions are only undertaken by the most extreme members of the population - your filters are...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    to Marino_bib: I've been a card-carrying Italian Commie* for most of my political life, and I subscribe to your post, verse, line and chapter. Well, I guess, this is what happens when communists of the "free world" agree that communism...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    1008: His modus operandi has therefore always been: "Deny everything, never admit anything, ignore/devalue/reject all proof that is offered, deflect all blame by making The West responsible for whatever allegation was made against Russia, and/or deflect the attention by pointing...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    to Charlie Stross @1000: Are you seriously proposing that the 1.5 million in camps were all would-be Da'esh volunteers? Well, to begin with, I would like to point out that a total Uighur population of the region is estimated to...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    to JH @1035: I am going to repeat what has been said before, with some additional details. This is merely a part of the knowledge I posses, as disclosing even small part of it is too much for this blog,...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    to Greg @994: The PRC are conducting a campaign of Racial genocide against the Uighurs, mainly because they are not Han Before going any deeper, I will note again that my knowledge of history and politics, apparently, gives me very...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    to Charlie Stross @986: This is just plain wrong, per the UN definition. Genocide is the targeted killing or cultural erasure of an identifiable group. The Canadian abduction of First Nations children and subsequent use of orphanage/homes to deprive them...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    to JBS @979: Is there a word that means the same thing as genocide, but would be appropriate to describe mass murder when a particular group is not singled out to be murdered? What if the murderers didn't care WHO...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Then again, communism is considered "unlawful" by many flavors of fascist regimes, which means that, in the most extreme case: 1. Any action performed by communists is automatically a crime and terrorism, including up to continuing to live and breathe....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    to _Moz_ @951: I suspect you are seeing survivor bias, because the people who are still in Russia are the ones who did not leave or die, or descended from same. More like there's always been a selection bias among...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Now you wouldn't surprise anyone who lives there with this kind of story (or anywhere in USSR, for that matter), so this kind of missing the point. Most of them, of course, have more complex biography than a few abstract...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    to SFReader @926: Yes - another case of Soviet-era genocide. In this case it was via relocation rather than the more usual: man-made famines and other disasters. *inhales* For how many more fxxking years, decades am I going to listen...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    to JBS @910: don't know if that still holds true in Russian, but ... No, it doesn't. to JBS to 912: Going by the 1991 Crimean sovereignty referendum, Crimea should be an independent state rather than a part of either...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    But under Stalin, yes the original meaning turned into something very different. And hey, if you really think that Stalin's gulags were nice little "winter camps," Never wanted to say anything about them being nice, but from the point of...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Allen Thomson @835: AFAIK "liquidate" in the sense of "kill" comes from 1920s Soviet era Russian ликвидировать and was used in a mass sense. Just how it acquired that meaning IDK. Liquidate has, and always had the meaning "eliminate" in...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    So then, they executed him *after* they'd already taken him prisoner? Well, that's pretty much following the Bin Laden precedent, where Obama had him killed despite taking him prisoner would have been easy 'cuz dead men tell no tales. This...
  • Commented on Creative writing challenge!
    Here's a spinoff that I came up with a bit late that involves a bonus option also. Though the real plot twist is that the dog and the Romanian circus is real thing, but the prison plot isn't. Some pretty...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    They don't think in terms of extremely rapid change. Their initial decision to target our Earth was based on initial exploration reports dating to the first millennium CE Totally forgot about this little detail. After first intelligence report on Laundry...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Basically: their bonkers strategic posture was the outcome of faulty intelligence and faulty assumptions, all of them highly path-dependent. Though tbh I simply cannot foresee if there was a successful strategy for the Alphar to win, ever. Probably only through...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    And now I am looking at fresh video (series) from Bloomberg that just pops out on my feed and I see nothing by an empty void. 80 minutes of Absolutely Nothing but Promices. People are definitely off their meds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlbZTyBuFlQ...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    Very easy explainable, it was described in many details, like, 90 years ago. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Air_Seller To be serious, there's a tendency I've noticed quite a long time ago. I think this is a new business model for modern first world industries...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    Allow me to suggest he was actually talking about (kind of) these anti-fascists you can see on the news (usually only at special occasions): https://twitter.com/edkashi/status/1182410000691580933 https://twitter.com/LawkGhafuri/status/1070082317924880385 They look all the same, aren't they? Hey, there's another joke - some people...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    to Heteromeles @105 One MoFo of am appropriate payback for the Opium Wars, considering that China's currently supplying a majority of the carfentanil and fentanyl to the US. There's no real reason to look so far down into history to...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    to Heteromeles @2186: The problem with 20th Century Capitalism is that it runs as dissipative system, like a tornado, a flame, or a living organism. It's quasi stable, operating far from thermodynamic equilibrium, and it continues to exist so long...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    You seem to be conflating marginal cost reasons for turning things off and on with technical abilities of the tech involved. Nah, that would be a hair-splitting at this point, you don't need to disengage the entire boiler if you...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    What's amusing is that it's the coal plants that have big running costs, the marginal cost of wind and solar is close to zero. Sometimes governments want to pursue secondary goals like industrialization and employment of people, because while some...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    @1181 Based on my observations in various places including USA and Ireland, when wind power shares space with farming the amount of land it occupies is the diameters of the towers plus a meter or less of weeds. Oh, ok,...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    to gasdive @1098 I didn't say it makes no difference to the budget. It obviously makes a difference to the budget, but it makes a bigger difference to the return on investment. Apparently it takes much more time to explain...
