Estimated damages $100m writeoff. 3,500 cars destroyed. Immense destruction. I would not want to be their insurance right now.

Iran’s IRGC has said that any “small mistake” by Washington would be met with force. The threat came as reports emerged that IRGC Quds Force head Esmail Ghaani had travelled to Iraq. In Iraq, the Iranian-backed proxy groups Kata’ib Hezbollah and others have upped their rhetoric against the US in rec...Jump to post
He was being sarcastic lol. Anyway, why are you getting all riled up about the India-Pakistan conflict?

It’s ‘a bit naive’ to claim China thrives when the west suffers - their current ‘Belt and Road Initiative’ would be a fantasy had they not enjoyed GDP growth rates between 5 and 15% on a consistent basis since 1990.

Its a bit naive not to believe that China, Russia, Iran and others have absolutely nothing to lose from this. These nations thrive when the western world suffers. We haven't seen any evidence that this was planned but if it is found out that they did later on, I wouldn't discard some serious confro...Jump to post
100K people are not going to die from the coronavirus.
This is a bullshit number from the CDC meant to scare people into staying at home (which is working)
If 20K people die in the US from the coronavirus, America will go into full lockdown mode to prevent it from going any further.
Excellent step in the right direction. INSTEX has been a long time in the making.
