Posted in: Hamas says Gaza ceasefire efforts are back at square one See in context

Time running out for Israel....Palestinian statehood is an idea whose time has come....hurrah !

I’m genuinely curious: Let’s say Palestine is granted statehood and both the West Bank and Gaza are formed into a single state with Israel completely removing all settlers and blockades. Would you consider the entire issue resolved?

Needs leaders of both sides to agree to a ceasefire or a surrender.

Why does there need to be an agreement between both Parties? If we’re going to compare it to Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan like you did earlier, the Allies didn’t agree to a ceasefire. They devastated both countries until they were forced to surrender. Was that bad in your eyes? Should the Allies have been less aggressive towards Germany and Japan in hopes of a ceasefire?

Germany and Japan both surrendered without every soldier having to be eliminated.

Yes, the keyword here being surrendered. Has Hamas surrendered?

The majority of the world does not classify Hamas as a terrorist group.

The majority of countries do, yes

There is NOTHING in Rafah, No Hostages, No Hamas Leadership, and No rewards.

There’s was an article posted 2 hours ago from Haaretz stating that 14 rockets had been fired out of Rafah towards Beersheba. There’s clearly a Hamas presence there

Which one was banned? The TEC?

Yeah the TEC

How about universal background checks, through federal and state databases?

I 100% agree on this

Hence the need for severe regulation.

What more regulation could there been done to prevent someone from getting a weapon that was already completely banned?

High capacity semi-auto pistols and rifles need to be severely regulated on both a Federal and State level.

One of the weapons used by Dylan was completely banned 5 years prior to the shooting yet he still managed to acquire it. All of the guns they used were acquired illegally.

That is not an argument to doubt the current consensus, there is "potential" for any kind of more data to come in the future, that would not excuse refraining from acting on what is actually available now.

It absolutely is a reason to doubt the current consensus. Am I saying that the current consensus is wrong? Absolutely not, but doubt and skepticism is an extremely important aspect of the scientific method. An ideology of blind acceptance of known truths would have left our ancestors in the dark ages

If the scientific community have reached a consensus that means the evidence is clear and the reports have a valid and recognized methodology that allows for the shared conclusions to remain accepted.

This argument has applied to scientific theories in the past and still been completely wrong years down the line. A great example is that of the earth being the center of the universe. At the time, as you put it, “the scientific community had reached a consensus that means the evidence is clear and the reports have a valid and recognized methodology that allows for the shared conclusions to remain accepted” that the earth was the center of the universe

Saying "people have been wrong before" is not an argument against this huge mountain of data and expertise, it is at much an excuse to avoid accepting something based on absolutely nothing.

Actually, it is an argument as it shows the fallibility in our way to understand the world around us.

See how you're conflating that to mean people using the scientific theory method now, with peer review, and published results, cannot be trusted.

People have used the scientific theory to come up with incorrect results in the past plenty of times, for example the growing earth theory.

Sure, as more data arrives, they come up with more accurate results.

Okay perfect. So we can both agree that there’s potential for more data to come in that will eventually prove global warming false? Yes or no?

Because one time someone lied or made a mistake about X, no one can ever be trusted with Y.

When did I say that? I never said that. Maybe you should learn to read because I clearly said in my previous post that

“Appealing solely to an authority figure without doing your own research and without having a healthy bit of skepticism makes you as much of a brainless sheep as the people you’re criticizing”

My point is that you should do your own research and not blindly believe things simply because “experts” say it’s true

Not if you're in America it doesn't.

Yes, it does. Higher HDI, better universities, etc.

Even Canada can't keep American guns out, and Canada has a protected border.

This here, are a HUGE part of why American's dont give a crap about making and real changes. It's always the "liberals" or "conservatives" fault. Both sides point fingers, and both sides yell and scream at each other, and wont give an inch, like little spoiled kids!

People are killing each other indiscriminately, and bullets dont care one bit if you are Republican or Democrat, they are equal opportunity "killers" .

It's not a Republican nor Democrat problem! It's EVERYONE's problem, and until both sides can get over themselves, incidents like this are just "wash-rinse-repeat" and WILL happen again, and again and again.

You clearly don’t know what you’re talking about. California has some of the strictest gun laws in the US and yet gun crime is insane there. That means gun control doesn’t work

But theUS gun corporations, NRA and Russian companies providing ammo to US gun and ammo merchants are perfectly happy to sell to gang members, and even to those on terrorist watchlists.No wonder Republicans want to defund the FBI, the FBI are trying to reduce damage done by some of the Republican's herd, which includes domestic terrorists.

How is this the fault of Republicans? This happened in California, an extremely liberal state with some of the nation’s stricter gun laws

Here’s a basic roadmap to how shilling for China works on this site

1: China does something aggressive towards Japan

2: Japan responds to this aggression bilaterally with US ally’s

3: Chinese shills accuse Japan of being a proxy state of the U.S. and blame blame the US for being aggressive towards “peaceful China”.

And looking at current Japan's economic situation & even Japan's future population trajectory, Japan will need China's market much much more, rather than the opposite.

Not true. China’s response to the pandemic and volatility on the global scale has made it an ever increasing unreliable trade partner resulting in the west shifting production to other countries. Apple has already begun to pull out of China and other companies are soon to follow. Some experts say China has 10 years before it collapses

Of course you will say, "but China lies about the figures" without a shed of evidence of that.

The evidence is literally posted in the article.

”In a first, China's health authorities - which have been reporting five or fewer deaths a day over the past month, numbers that are inconsistent with the long queues seen at funeral homes - did not report COVID fatalities data on Tuesday.”

Try actually reading the article you’re commenting on

The USA dictates to the world with its gang mentality of the order of how we should all live in a bogus fantasy freedom la la superhero land.

Posted in: if Japan shoulders most of the burden of its defense while America provides the alliance’s striking arm—then U.S. forces will enjoy a sanctuary from which to prosecute combat operations in Taiwan’s vicinity. Sanctuary is oftentimes a pivotal ingredient of victory in a hard-run conflict. You try to create it for yourself while denying it to antagonists. See in context

This is how they think. Japan is just cannon fodder for US global ambitions. Look at Ukraine for reference.

China is acting like a spoiled baby in the region trying to constantly assert military dominance over surrounding nations. The US stepping in to guarantee security for its allies is hardly a surprise. You acting like this is some grand conspiracy by the US is completely disingenuous.

While I’m not arguing McDonalds is healthy, Super Size me was an extremely manipulative documentary. Morgan was a massive alcoholic at the time of filming and attributed all the negative health results to eating fast food while completely omitting his alcohol dependency since the age of 13

It seems many in the US are taught that because Japan committed atrocities and war crimes during the war, it somehow justifies the even more atrocious war crimes of the US and allies

It wasn’t a war crime. Total war means total war. Pretty much every analysis has concluded that the invasion of Japan would have taken more lives than the bombs did. Just look at the firebombing of Tokyo as an example.
