Posted in: Skepticism remains as China veers from assertive diplomacy See in context

Desert TortoiseDec. 4  07:16 am JST I believe that China is concerned that Russia will eventually lose the war, causing a regime change in the Kremlin and leading to the democratization of Russia.

Russia will democratize but maybe not dramatically overthrowing Putin. Either he figures it out and stops being a child or the next Russian president figures it out.

Posted in: U.S. privately asks Ukraine to show Russia it's open to talks: Washington Post See in context

This should not be mistaken for tolerance of Russian aggression against Europe. To the contrary, Russia is preparing for a long war against Europe. FNATO is signaling a willingness to allow a peaceful withdrawal of all Russian forces from Europe, today. Russia should accept that offer while it is still available.

180 war planes. If DPRK had an aviation industry that would be an impressive number. Instead, we have to wonder what qualifies as a "war plane."

“We need to pay the bills somehow! Twitter cannot rely entirely on advertisers. How about $8?" Musk replied.

Posted in: Unlicensed drunk driver involved in hit-and-run, attempts to avoid police See in context

In addition, he had lost his license in a previous DUI seven years ago and was driving a truck with an inspection sticker that expired one year ago.

One has to wonder how the vehicle had any sticker prior to expiring a year ago if his license was taken seven years ago. Maybe he didn't have the vehicle for the previous time? Or was it still listed in someone else's name?

They don't explain why some are hanged and others used firing squad. Barbaric, regardless of the reason. They should still have to explain the method.

Posted in: Trump Organization CFO pleads guilty in tax case; agrees to testify See in context

He could have had a deal where he didn't need to go to jail at all, but this is what he wants. What sort of deal did the man get from the other side that he is willing to go to live with New York's lower class criminals on Riker's Island for 100 days?

Madness. The whole thing is madness because the Russian base at Sebastopol was working fine and had no trouble with Ukraine. Now look at that base and the trouble.

"The church’s substantial assets have, over time, included a shipbuilding operation, seafood company, vast real estate holdings including the New Yorker Hotel, The Washington Times and Pyeonghwa Motors in North Korea. Kim Ki-hoon, the Unification Church’s North America chairman, reports that the church owns about a dozen business subsidiaries in the U.S. worth about $1.5 billion. In South Korea, the church-owned conglomerate Tongil Group deals in everything from ginseng to guns. The church’s 13 South Korean subsidiaries represent another $1.6 billion in assets, according to a recent Korean newspaper report and confirmed by Kim." https://www.ozy.com/news-and-politics/meet-the-billionaire-holy-mother-of-the-unification-church/80841/

I am sure the members are nice. But this is a business that doesn't need a penny from anyone. In fact, it has the money to send the other direction.
