Biden said that a solution to the Israel-Hamas war is complicated. That's because he can't think outside the box. This is my proposal to end the Israeli Palestinian conflict. Egypt will be given the West Bank enlarged by land equivalent to the Gaza Strip. In return, Israel will be given the Gaza Strip and land at least 3 times larger than the West Bank in the Sinai Peninsula. Some of the land will be adjacent to water so Israel can build desalination plants. The Sinai is inhospitable, and Egypt doesn’t have the technology to develop it but Israel does. With its new land, Egypt can give it to the Palestinians, make it a state within Egypt, or whatever it wants.

Britain and France would not attack Russia. Their navies would keep the Russian navy from blocking Ukraine's exports from the Black Sea. Their air forces would provide air cover for Ukraine. Their armies would be the reserve, freeing Ukrainian troops to go to the front and blocking any Russian breakthroughs.

Biden should also speak there. He should propose that people cannot own an assault rifle until they are 23 years old. The purpose is to give time for criminal activities and mental problems to manifest, things which would bar ownership of a gun. Note that the age requirement only applies to assault rifles. He should also bring Evgeniya Emerald to speak. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydNueSx9_vM&t=208s Her purpose would be to get support for Ukraine. She should then go to West Point and military bases. Biden or Kamala Harris should accompany her to generate publicity.

The US is a member of NATO. It would be drawn into the conflict. In my plan, NATO in its entirety would not get involved but only some members such as France and Britain. This would decrease the chance of Russia using nuclear weapons because Putin cannot claim he is being ganged up on.

NATO in its entirety should not go into Ukraine. This would give Putin an excuse to use nuclear weapons by claiming NATO is ganging up on poor Russia. Rather a few nations should go in such as France and Britain. The British and French navies would keep Russia from blocking Ukraine's exports through the Black Sea. The British and French air forces would provide air cover for Ukraine. The British and French armies would be the reserve enabling more Ukrainian troops to go the front and block any Russian breakthroughs.

NATO countries should repatriate any Ukrainian men attempting to dodge conscription. No country should want men who don't want to fight. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sv9XNFpRdhg

If it weren't for Western aid, Russia would have already conquered Ukraine. Note that Russia is getting help from China, Iran, and North Korea. Britain would be able to provide a navy and air force, something which Ukraine doesn't have much of. Although small, Britain's army has historically excellent.

Yes, Beshear would be a better choice than Shapiro because of what's happening in Gaza. Americans are concerned with Biden's age. It is stupid for the Democratic leadership not to choose a younger candidate. Then the matchup would be a young Democratic candidate against an elderly Trump. Biden should have endorsed the tougher House bipartisan bill instead of the Senate one. This would take away immigration as an issue Republicans can use against Biden.

Yes, but I don't think the fighting would be for years. The Royal Navy and Royal Air Force would greatly aid Ukraine since Ukraine doesn't have much of an air force and navy. The British government would have to convince the public that Britain either fight now or later. Later would be more difficult because now they have the Ukrainians fighting with them. When Germany invaded Poland in 1939, Britain and France declared war on Germany but did nothing. Britain and France had hoped to avoid war but couldn't.

Yes, war would exist between Britain and Russia. France has already said it might send troops if Russia achieve a breakthrough. NATO should not get involved. It would give Putin an excuse to use nuclear weapons because he would claim he is being overwhelmed. He cannot claim that with small Britain. The problem for Putin is that Britain's military has historically been very good.

It is plausible that the M1 isn't a match for drones, because it wasn't designed for such a battle field.

Above is what you said. This implies that other tanks are a match for drone. If no tanks are designed to survive in the open with the sky filled with drones, why would say something like that?

No tank is a match for kamikaze drones. The reason is that the top of a tank is thinly armored. A battlefield full of drones is something new. Armies will have to adjust their tactics to accommodate this. They will probably have to have weapons that clear the drones while the tanks advance.

King Charles is not sentimental. He rejected his son's request to see him when he was in the UK a few days ago. Remember, King Charles has cancer and might not live much longer.

They were invited because Prince Harry founded the Invictus Games. The British government should send Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as goodwill ambassadors to various countries. They would be paid per trip using Royal Family money. The purpose would be to strength ties between these countries and Britain. The British taxpayers have to get their money's worth. King Charles' opinion would be irrelevant.

Russia has threatened to attack facilities in Britain because Britain has given permission for Ukraine to use its Storm Shadow missiles to attack inside Russia. If Russia attacks British facilities, Britain should send its military to Ukraine. The Royal Navy would be a match for the Russian navy and the RAF could gain air superiority. Its ground forces would greatly bolster Ukraine's.

The trip would have strengthened Nigeria's relationship with Britain.

See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hIDqPGcSbg&t=24s King Charles and Prince William's rejection of Prince Harry's request to meet them a few days ago when he was in the UK is a manifestation of their bad personality.

The CDC has already relaxed its isolation recommendation so it's more in line with the flu. The vaccination recommendation might also change to align with the flu.

I liked it. Saw it on IMAX. I think it was very smart for Villeneuve to have Chani leave Paul. In present times, it wouldn't sit well with women for Chani to stay with Paul although he planned to marry Princess Irulan as the book portrays. In Messiah, Paul becomes a villain. Villeneuve shouldn't follow the book. Villeneuve in Dune Part 3 should have Paul remain a hero. He should have Paul realize that Chani is the love of his life and wants to go back to be the Paul Chani loved. Messiah was not as popular as Dune. Hebert wrote Messiah to correct people's interpretation that Paul was a hero. Did it ever occur to Hebert that that's want people like, a hero? In Messiah, Hebert wanted to show the result of people following someone fanatically. But people already learn that lesson in Adolf Hitler. People want to feel the romantic love between Paul and Chani not the sadness in someone embracing darkness. We have already seen this in Anakin Skywalker.

Ukraine has already used ATACMS effectively against Russian targets. See https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/other/ukraine-deploys-new-weapon-for-first-time-after-secret-delivery/ar-AA1nAWY4

The F-16 and Su-35 have their own advantages. See https://www.defencestreet.com/sukhoi-su-35-vs-f-16-fighting-falcon/ With the F-16, Ukraine will be able to counter any Russian air threat.

Russia has suffered heavy losses. See https://www.reuters.com/world/us-intelligence-assesses-ukraine-war-has-cost-russia-315000-casualties-source-2023-12-12/ However, just as in World War II Russia knows it has a massive personnel advantage over Ukraine and is willing to sustain heavy casualties. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8fWp-i-BGA&t=11s Ukraine can offset this with superior Western weapons. During the Korean War, UN forces were able to offset China's numerical superiority with superior weapons.

Russians are not eager to fight. See https://www.npr.org/2023/04/13/1169464889/russia-military-draft-ukraine-war

Ukrainians should draft and have countries return men who avoid the draft. If Ukraine have good leaders, troops will fight for each other and their country, although some will have to be forced. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sv9XNFpRdhg and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZGSfFFuujw

To the contrary, Ukrainians love Western weapons. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0iZYxnBCQk&t=26s and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0Un__ss_ag

Firing a rifle and moving under fire remains the same. Specific tactics can be adjusted as instructors get advice from Ukrainian veterans. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXYp4kAhvnU&t=14s

The US will be supplying Ukraine with more ATACMS. This will force Russia to move their supply depots further back making it difficult to sustain an attack. Ukrainian pilots should be trained on the F-16 soon eliminating Russian air superiority. The Russians are not making huge gains as you claim. See https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/russian-forces-make-advances-as-ukraine-awaits-fresh-us-weaponry/ar-AA1nJpXQ You think Russians like fighting for Putin?

This shows another benefit of the West supplying weapons to Ukraine. Weapons and tactics and can be analyzed to see how well they function in a war against an enemy with advanced weapons.

Hitler claimed that the territory he wanted belonged to Germany. Specifically, the Sudetenland and then the Polish Corridor. Britain and France giving Hitler the Sudetenland only encouraged him to get the Polish Corridor.

The Vietnam war does not compare with the war in Ukraine. South Vietnam was not invaded by an outside country initially but had an internal uprising from the Viet Cong. Ukrainians are fighting ferociously against the Russians whereas many South Vietnamese were unwilling to fight. NATO tanks were not turned into scraps. Instead, the Leopard 2's are loved by the Ukrainian tank crews and feared by the Russians. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0iZYxnBCQk&t=322s The Ukrainian counteroffensive failed because they had to cross layers of fortifications including dense mine fields. Ukraine didn't have the personnel or equipment to do this. Arming Ukraine is far cheaper than having American troops fight Russia. Putin will not stop with Ukraine no more than Hitler stopped with the Sudetenland.

Biden should invite Olha Bigar to go before Congress and thank them for providing aid to Ukraine. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwkIsnTn01E&t=20s People will see the contrast between Bigar and Marjorie Taylor Greene, who has no military service. Bigar is an inspiration to women. Biden should get her to speak at West Point, before the NRA, and any other place willing to invite her.

‘Blatant aggression’: Reactions to US veto of Palestine’s UN membership bid by Drewski in WorldNews

This is the peace proposal the UN should present. Egypt will be given the West Bank enlarged by land equivalent to the Gaza Strip. In return, Israel will be given the Gaza Strip and land at least 3 times larger than the West Bank in the Sinai Peninsula. Some of the land will be adjacent to water so Israel can build desalination plants. The Sinai is inhospitable, and Egypt doesn’t have the technology to develop it but Israel does. With its new land, Egypt can give it to the Palestinians, make it a state within Egypt, or whatever it wants.

Biden is stupid. This will lead to higher oil prices for Americans and more hardships for Venezuelans causing many to flee the country. Democracy is not the best government for all countries. Some countries require a strongman to maintain order. An example of Bukele, president of El Salvador.

I have no means of presenting my plan. Consequently, we do not know how Israel and the world would respond to it. If my plan is rejected and there is no ceasefire, then the war could spread beyond the region. Remember that World War I started off small but spread.

This would be a stupid Democratic strategy. An immigrant has to be in the US at least 5 years to vote and Biden immigration policy is turning Latinos and Blacks against Democrats.

Biden has already told Israel that the US will not participate in any offensive operation against Iran, but Biden should also tell Netanyahu that Israel would be on its own if Iran responds to an Israeli offensive operation. However, as I previously said to stop the conflict Biden should offer this proposal to Israel provided Egypt agrees. Egypt will be given the West Bank enlarged by land equivalent to the Gaza Strip. In return, Israel will be given the Gaza Strip and land at least 3 times larger than the West Bank in the Sinai Peninsula. Some of the land will be adjacent to water so Israel can build desalination plants. The Sinai is inhospitable, and Egypt doesn’t have the technology to develop it, but Israel does. With its new land, Egypt can give it to the Palestinians, make it a state within Egypt, or whatever it wants.

If Israel doesn't accept the proposal or it's not feasible, the UN should impose a ceasefire.

Then Russia will not be permitted to occupy the Donbas. You are thinking of Trump's plan not mine. Remember in my plan Russia only is permitted to occupy land it seized before the invasion.

Yes, but the land would be land Russia occupied before the invasion. Ukraine would not be permitted to join NATO, but the UN would be obligated to defend Ukraine if Russia invades again.
