The Israeli right wins elections by fear mongering about palestinians, pandering to colons and extremists, then makes these issues worse so that they can do it again at the next election, will the people finally see the light ?Jump to post
While Trump was a known douchebag, it's difficult for people to remember what they thought about him back then vs now.
The cult wasn't as strong, so it might have swayed enough votes.
Also I wonder how do kids living in Florence cope as there is a copy of the statue outside in the street.
Also the Manneken Pis in Brussels (add pedo to pornography, there...).
Someone needs to look up the dictionary definition of pornography...
Too bad she resigned under pressure, I would have either held on until they fired me, or resigned as soon as I heard about the fuss as in "WTF I'm out of there".
I guess the stop & start implementation can vary. In my manual car it definitely takes a fraction of a second and I deactivate it not because I mind that but because I end up stalling at the worst times as I forget about it and engage the 1st gear too quickly.

Because then you can't call it an accident or a misunderstanding or whatever.

I don't get it either. I don't know if Germany ever used their Tigers in combat, but I can't imagine telling French Tigre pilots who fought in Africa that they would have been better off in an H145.
In fact there were also Gazelles engaged and some pilots were killed because of the lackluster armor.

Yes fishing nets with some metal weights at the bottom so that they form a vertical screen.

An alternative to my high end hunter killer UAV armada would be cheap, off the shelf drones just flown into the path of the enemies' drones. Buy thousands of them. Maybe attach some kind of net to them so they catch the propeller of the adversary.Jump to post
If there is a will, there is a way. A law was passed recently in France to accelerate the building of new nuclear reactors, reducing the number of appeals, commissions, environmental studies, etc. (environmental studies are a moot point as the reactors will be built at existing sites).

The manufacturing issue is also true for the chips.
About the M1's secret armor, just having one's hands on it allows to know how it's made and conceive and even test various weapons able to defeat it.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe by saying they're not against abortion but there is no right to it.
If now they ban a perfectly safe drug that makes abortion safer in fact than other means, they clearly show they are in fact against abortion and violating their supposed impartiality.
The idea of letting drones fly hundreds of Km over your country until it gets to its target to be shot down in the last hundreds of meters might not fly with everybody. What about going like for like and having an "UAV Air Force" ? Hundreds, thousands of hunting/killing UAVs you can launch...Jump to post

No you should allow immigration of young women. They're probably not the ones pushing for that crap (some are, of course), and the sex imbalance should enrage the men in these states (whereas women cope fine without enough men...). And of course declining birth rates there would help too.Jump to post
