Re: World News Thread

There are 10 million people in Moscow alone. This is Moscow in 1991, when the city turned out against the tanks to stop the August Coup . The tanks stopped. 57b7a783a30b0.image.jpg But back then, they had Eltzin to rally around. Now, there is no candidate for the throne left alive, no leader and no ...

Re: Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

Putin's house cleaning continues. Reported but not confirmed that Strelkov/Girkin is dead. He was the war criminal responsible for the downing of the MH17 flight over Ukraine. He was arrested by Putin for blog posts that criticized how the war was conducted and demanded that harsher measures be used...

Re: Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

Radio Free Europe (And other source) Friends of noted Russian blogger Aleksandr Morozov said on February 21 that he committed suicide after citing unnamed sources online saying that Russian troops might have lost up to 16,000 troops while fighting for the Ukrainian city of Avdiyivka. Morozov is said...

Re: War between Hamas and Israel

And yet it's the only option that makes sense. :(

There have been reports of fighting on the border between Gaza and Egypt as Egypt is determined to keep the refugees behind the very tall wall they built at the border.

Re: AI! AI! A ChatGPT is come!

It must just be generating text that is shaped like the sort of response a person would expect to their prompt, without much regard for whether it is actually correct. That's exactly what it does. It predicts the most probable sequence of words that is related to the prompt. And as the web fills wi...

Re: War between Hamas and Israel

Ceasefire is only good if both sides adhere to it. Hamas continues daily bombardment of Israeli cities, which goes almost entirely unreported, and refuses to return hostages, some of whom have since been reported dead. They also continue to state the destruction of Israel and its people as their sol...

Re: The (no longer) much too early 2024 election thread

Never mind that MRNA vaccines are not available in Russia (Sputnik is an adenovirus vector based) and Navalny has been imprisoned since January 2021, before mrna vaccines were released in the West.

Carlson posted a video of his shopping trip to a Moscow supermarket, presumably one of those that are kept ready to be stocked for the visiting foreigners. He was very impressed at how cheap everything was. His total came to about $100, iirc, which at the current exchange rate is between 30-50% of m...

Re: The (no longer) much too early 2024 election thread

This is the talking point on the right. Navalny = Trump and if he is convicted he will die in prison. Also Navalny was killed by the CIA, who infiltrated Russia's most secure prison to keep him from telling the investigators about... They don't know what it is but they are sure it's really bad for t...

Re: World News Thread

It needs to be said that while Navalny's courage in speaking against Putin is undisputed, that the West labeled him the leader of Russian for freedom and democracy speaks more to the lack of leaders for freedom and democracy in Russia than to Navalny's actual views. The list of people murdered by Pu...

Christo Grozev: "Russian telegram channel VChK-Ogpu notes that the press release announcing @navalny's death was posted literally 2 minutes after the official time of his death." And while it may be a mere coincidence that the death occurred days after Tucker Calrson did his best to polish...

Re: Chaos in Congress

I dunno, but Tucker was last seen wearing a traditional Buryat costume, and managing to look like a right pillock despite the costume being objectively gorgeous. Buryats are an ethnic group native to Siberia that saw so many men conscripted to fight in Ukraine that some called this an attempt at gen...

Stealing, as UNRWA claims, or using with full knowledge and permission, as Israel alleges. Having seen the pictures, I think the latter is more likely.

Re: Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

Yup. And also that Ukraine didn't exist until Lenin made it in 1917, and also that Ukrainians really wanted to be a part of Russia since 1700s. Also Rurik. Prediction: Poland is going to forget whatever economic issues they are having with Ukraine at the moment because they will want to punch Russia...
