Re: Will Roe v Wade be overturned? How do you feel about that?

Honestly, that bit about the first breath is well-aligned with modern medical practice. Termination of a pregnancy past the point of viability is not taken lightly. It's done in cases of incest discovered late, severe birth defects, or if the mother's life is at risk. But, in that last case, if they...

Special heating...I see what you did there. :rofl:

How many generals do they have? And how many do they need? Just trying to figure out how much longer the war can go.

Re: Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

If their answer to modern weapons is nuclear threats they're pretty much admitting that their conventional military technology hasn't been keeping up with NATO's conventional military technology and their only hope of "winning" at this point is dropping nukes. Though they kind of were alre...

Re: World News Thread

Well, to be fair, Macron didn't kick her backside as hard this time. Still beat her by more than ten points, though, and most of the vote for him was really a vote against her. It is worth pointing out that Macron is only the second French President to win reelection in 20 years. Which, given Macron...

Re: Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

I'm really wondering how the fighting in the Donbas is going to actually go. Everyone's got Russia down as the heavy favorite because of the terrain but it seems like that would just make it easier for the tractors to come out and get them. On a more serious note, the US will be sending heavy equipm...

Re: Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

I know the Russians are refocused on a more attainable part of Ukraine. The danger is far less acute now, otherwise I suspect both Zelenskyy and Johnson would have been in helmets and flak jackets But the city is so quiet while they're walking around out there. Did the roads get closed off? Were tho...

Re: Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

MH17 is a passenger jet shot out of the sky in Ukraine by a Russian missile from a Russian missile launcher in 2014. 298 people who had absolutely nothing to do with the conflict died. I am not sure if Russian military personnel were directly involved or if the artillery was just sort of loaned or b...

Ick. I was hoping, but these types are not easily dislodged. Especially since Orban seems to have taken an interest in genitals and what people do or don't do with them. That really gets the right-wingers excited. They'll put up with a lot so long as anyone who's not strictly heterosexual and confor...

Could have been Ukraine striking back. Could have been a planned false flag operation. Could also have been a huge mistake now being dressed up as a false flag.

Re: Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

I think the world's noticed the difference between being and not being a nuclear power for a long time now. That's why China, Pakistan and India have all built them. It's why Israel convinced France to help them nuke up. It's why Iran and N Korea have or have had nuclear programs. You will, of cours...

Re: Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

Even in Poland, which has taken in the bulk of the Ukrainians, it's not the government that is doing the work, it's self organized individuals, and they are burning out. The same thing happened in Serbia in 2015, when the waves of refugees started pouring in from the Near East. Eventually, the gove...
