Just for context, maybe we should remind everyone that there is a sovereignty dispute over the Malvinas/Falkland Islands between Argentina and the UK. This dispute is recognised as such by the UN and the whole international community. There is no negotiation going on between Argentina and the Islan...Jump to post
Probably no trust that the passengers would be civilians.
A group of Argentine Salvage Workers arrived at South Georgia in 1982.
Turned out to be Argentine Marines.

Which standards for goods have changed since we officially left?
there is also a fringe element who have spent the last few years opposing LE not because of racism or social justice, but from opposition to the very notion that police powers exist. These groups apparently believe almost all LE requests are Constitutional violations, and there is a YouTube channel...Jump to post

So the Librarian has to read every book before it goes on the shelf.

We are talking about 'Classified' documents here.
The level of classification is actually more important than the volume. That often seems to get lost in this type of discussion.
Do we know what classification the documents were in these three instances?.

I thought it was just 14 Leopard 2 from Germany and 14 from Poland.
From the police reports, she was resisting arrest by the officers who were trying to handcuff her. She was flailing her arms around to avoid the cuffs, and struck one of the officers in the face. It wasn't intentional, but it was resisting and assault. The first rule of protesting is don't actively...Jump to post
Anarchists by definition are not political because they reject systems and institutions wholesale.

Not sure why we discuss every mass shooting.
Why not have a single 'thoughts and prayers' thread.
And of course our cowardly supreme court, heavily protected as they should be, is unwilling to see that our children and ourselves have any protection. What do you suggest?.

"Adult" has several different definitions in the US and many other countries. Therefore, I don't see how any of this makes sense. My point is that describing porn as consenting adults watching consenting adults do adult things makes numerous assumptions. Also exposure to violent content i...Jump to post

The Challenger 3 is an upgraded Challenger 2 rather than a new build.
Is there the capacity to build new Challenger 2's, as the Challenger 3 is not yet available.

If you want to tackle violence I'm not sure porn is the obvious target... I do think porn should have a bit more regulation, in particular regarding the contracts performers sign. If a girl decides she no longer wants to be in the industry, not only doesn't she have any control over the videos, but...Jump to post
Several places around here (deeply MAGA territory) simply scan the bar code on the back of my drivers license and can also use a UV light to ensure it is a legit license. The "adult" web sites I have seen simply say "click here if you are over 18" but no UV light or bar code sca...Jump to post
If they searched his bag and didn't find it, was it in the bag or elsewhere (locker?.).
As for the gun being on the top shelf, (assuming this is true) once you stand on a chair it may be reachable.
If it had a trigger lock, (which was locked) then where was the key.
If these countries (and others) send MBT to Ukraine, how do they backfill in their own armies?.
Can they build new Abrams, Challenger and Leopard or do they introduce a model, if so what?.

If a man tried to enter a female toilet, could he be refused entry if he had a GRC?. So here is the confusing part: You are stating "a man who holds a GRC". That implies the person is trans and a male as applied by the GRC, which means the person was formerly... assigned female at birth. ...Jump to post

I could be wrong, but I dont think the P-8 can carry a harpoon in the bomb bay. They are mounted on the wing. The only ordinance that can fit in the bomb bay are the light weight torpedoes, depth bombs and, SBDs and maybe 500lb JDAMs. So I don't think an A320 can carry a cruise missile in the a pot...Jump to post
A man with a GRC is a woman, so why wouldn’t they use a female toilet? Who would be refusing entry to the toilet? My understanding is that the law now says that if you 'live like a woman' for three months you get a GRC. There is no requirement for a medical assessment. So what exactly does 'live li...Jump to post

There is merit in this argument, however it's also true that a person doing that without a GRC would have questionable intent. Whereas if they had the GRC, their intent would be regarded as benign.
