Posted in: U.S. looking for ways to reduce nuclear risk with China See in context

China is in the process of building something close to 250 new missile silos at three sites in northwest China. Each of those silos will hold an ICBM with potentially 8 or 10 separate warheads.

Great, another reference to a blog as a supposedly legitimate source. And even in this blog article, this is what they say "In this article we use words like suspected, apparent, and probable to remind the reader of that fact." In the meantime, the US already has more than 3,000.

Yep, everything in China revolves around the red envelope. Refuse and you get inspected, fined and maybe run completely out of business. China is as bad as any third world basket case for corruption.

This is not something that foreign business has to worry about, don't mislead people.

Posted in: Biden, Putin to speak over Russia's stepped up security demands See in context

Just me but I think over the course of January 2022 the US and NATO should increase air power on Ukraine's borders with Poland, Romania and Moldava and conduct joint exercises with NATO air forces and Ukrainian air and ground forces to improve their mutual coordination.

That's warmongering

Time for the US to start having military units rotate through Taiwan openly to conduct joint training, and invite their Air Force to Red Flag exercises.

Time to call John Rambo to save the world!

The only hope is for the Russian people to decide to put in term limits and throw Putin out, take back all the money he stole while they are at it. 

It seems that Putin has the majority support in Russia. Do you know something that those Russian people don't know? Like about how much money he stole, could you share the details?

So who would be responsible for something like this, is it the "young new engineers learning the ropes" or "older engineers who are their mentors and team leads."?

I'd rather row the boat and enjoy the fishing.

That's pretty much all you can do if you don't have that kind of money. Just don't complain about how other people spend their dough.

I think space tourism is dumb and doesn’t contribute anything to science.

Should it? It's "tourism" after all. Do you know of any tourism that does contribute to science?

They bombed Serbia. Liberated Kosovo (it is free and independent now) and bombed parts of Libya which remains a sovereign state and in dispute between domestic forces.

Your version of truth is astonishingly far fetched like many Russian narratives.

So are you saying that your version of truth is the right one? Based on what, Wikipedia?

Posted in: Russia sets out tough demands for security pact with NATO See in context

Monroe Doctrine from the 1820s

Yes, exactly, the Monroe doctrine. So if the Russians have a similar principle in place (as I am sure most countries do), then it's easy to understand why they want NATO to stay as far from its borders as possible.

Posted in: Russia sets out tough demands for security pact with NATO See in context

Russia has no right to try and dictate who can and cannot join NATO.

Let's say Venezuela decided to join SCO and host a Chinese or Russian military base, would the US be ok with that? If no, why not?

Posted in: Blinken vows more U.S. military might in Indo-Pacific See in context

Of course being a CCP supporter you will now reply with a rubbish statement and try to put down the US and it's regional allies and declare China as the moral and rightful leader that should be left to rule the region and beyond as it see's fit.

In other words, you are saying that the US should be "the moral and rightful leader..." and that any opinion that doesn't agree with yours is rubbish.

Posted in: Blinken vows more U.S. military might in Indo-Pacific See in context

It would simply get much worse without them to back up regional allies.

In other words, you are saying it should be the US to "dominate with little to no opposition and push others out of their traditional fishing grounds, out of their own EEZ and move on disputed territory to wrest control of a larger footprint in the region"

Actually what happens is that OPEC and the US ramp up production and wave to the Russians with only one finger.

Right. Just like OPEC and Russia waved to Biden a few weeks back when sleepy Joe was begging them to increase oil production. What's the price per gallon these days in the States, btw?

Um, no and they were sure as hell not attended by "paid" marchers.

Obviously a surprise to you, but yes, it was all orchestrated. Just google Nuland and her classic "F... the EU" in 2014 Kiev.
