“The prospects of Russia achieving victory this year have greatly reduced as a result” of the resumption of weapons supplies and aid, said Ben Barry, senior fellow for land warfare at the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies. “Russia might have the largest number of soldiers, but a lot of their first rate armored vehicles have been destroyed” and it’ll take years to rebuild the army to its 2022 level, he said.

Yes, Putin will continue his aggression until he's stopped or unless the world wants to submit to him. From https://quotesexplained.com/a-coward-dies-a-thousand-deaths-julius-caesar/

“Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once.

This means that someone who is afraid of dying dies many times in their head before they die, but someone who is brave only dies once. The speaker thinks it’s strange that people are afraid of death because it is something that happens to everyone and is unavoidable.

Consider that death, the actual passing from being alive to dead only happens once and is in an instant. The fear that it is going to happen, however, is something that scares us at our very foundations. The fear of death is the oldest fear of our species and perhaps the only single fear we’ve shared with every other member of our species. However, Caesar argues, that the best way to live is to just accept that death is inevitable and pay it no attention.

But Germany had no right to invade Poland. Also, it was Germany which invaded France. France and Britain should have attacked Germany from the west while much of Germany's military was in Poland.

No. The people are highly skilled but are paid less than their American counterpart. Even if the US prevented this, the US would still need foreign skilled workers because there aren't enough Americans to fill these jobs. For example, doctors and nurses. Also, all companies aren't cheating.

Like Hitler, Putin wants land. If he conquers Ukraine, he will become more powerful because he will have the resources of Ukraine, the breadbasket of Europe. Also, countries such as North Korea and China will note that the West fears nuclear threats and threaten likewise. If there is a nuclear war, it is because it was unavoidable. When Hitler invaded Poland, France and Britain did nothing because they wanted to avoid war. The result was that Germany conquered France and Britain had to fight Germany alone except for some Commonwealth countries.

The Russian attack on Kharkiv has stalled because of the ferocious resistance of the Ukrainians and Western weapons now striking targets in Russia. Russia has been unable to achieve a breakthrough. If they did, they would be moving rapidly across Ukraine such as Russia's offensives in 1943 and 1944 against Germany.

If the attack on Kharkiv was just a diversion Russia would be advancing much quicker in the South. More likely Russia is attacking along a broad front hoping to gain ground before more Western weapons arrive including F-16s. Also, Ukraine has been given permission to strike targets in Russia. This could stop any Russian advance. Unlike the war in Vietnam, Ukrainians are fighting ferociously to defend their country. That is the reason that despite overwhelming numerical superiority, Russia has not conquered Ukraine.

This is the plan Biden should offer Israel 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.

This plan will win the support of voters who dislike Biden's Israel policy. They will see that he has an innovative plan.

Because there is no choice. If the West fears nuclear threats, Putin will use nuclear threats to get whatever he wants. So would China and North Korea. The West should reply to Putin with this:

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” ― Frank Herbert, Dune

Covid is deadlier than the common cold. Remember when hospitals were overflowing with patients dying from Covid. That's not true today because most people have some immunity to Covid through vaccination or infection. However, the government was too cautious. Although, there was little evidence of people catching Covid outdoors, sports stadiums limited the people in attendance. Although, pediatricians recommended children go to school because they would fall behind, needed social contact and usually do not suffer harm from the virus, many schools resorted to remote learning. If a person is infected with Covid, drugs such as Paxlovid is prescribed. However, these drugs were not yet developed.

With Trump having taken a hit, the Democratic leadership should replace Biden to take advantage of this. Democrats cannot have a candidate who people vote for simply because Trump is a worse choice. They have to have a candidate who people support enthusiastically. A young moderate such as Josh Shapiro or Andy Beshear would be good. After the Battle of Gettysburg during the American Civil War, President Lincoln replaced the Union commander, General Meade because he failed to pursue the Confederate army. Lincoln said that Meade reminded him of an old lady shooing geese across a creek. Lincoln replaced Meade with Ulysses S. Grant who would lead the Union army to victory.

"Wrong. Unanimity to convict, but they may disagree about the underlying theory of criminality," posted Anthony Michael Kreis, a constitutional law professor at Georgia State University in response to Roberts.

"People keep harping on this but are missing the context. They have to be unanimous that Trump falsified the records and did so with the intent to commit another crime. They do not have to be unanimous on what the other crime was: that's the rule under NY law," wrote legal analyst Bradley P. Moss.

Attorney Randall Eliason wrote, "Folks, this Tweet that's making the rounds is very misleading. The lack of unanimity refers not to the charged offense but to the underlying crime the defendant sought to conceal with the false business records—that's the law in NY, and the defense did not disagree."

Some US weapons to Ukraine susceptible to jamming. by Dune1032 in WorldNews

Taiwan, South Korea, and European countries are not facing weaker enemies. HIMARS and Excalibur are not cheap. It would be cheaper to buy dumb bombs and artillery rounds. If countries see that the weapons don't work, they will buy alternatives. The British Storm Shadow has a terrain contour following system that cannot be jammed. I'm not talking about Ukraine. Suppose the US got into a war with Russia or China. If American troops are armed with weapons which don't work, many troops will die.

If countries see that these weapons don't work, they won't buy them. Defense contractors could just as easily make money designing and producing weapons that work. It would be retarded to produce weapons that don't work. The consequence could be the loss of a war.

The Democratic leadership is stupid. They should replace Biden with a young moderate such as Josh Shapiro or Andy Beshear. Democrats fear that Trump will end democracy yet do nothing. This reminds me of the Battle of France in 1940. The French were shocked when the Germans attacked through the Ardennes Forest, a place they thought was impassable for tanks. One French officer suggested that all exits from the Ardennes be mined. Another had a simpler solution, start cutting down the trees in the Ardennes. Neither solution was followed. The result was that France considered one of the world's most powerful countries, surrendered in 6 weeks.

If the US knew these weapons wouldn't work against a country with advanced weapons, why would they give them to Ukraine? It would expose to the world that these weapons are ineffective against first rate countries. The best explanation is that the Pentagon never thought that weapons using GPS for targeting could be jammed. During World War II, the US resorted to daylight bombing because they thought that their heavily armed bombers would not need fighter escorts. The Luftwaffe showed this was folly by attacking the bombers head-on, dropping bombs into the formations, and using rockets.

The weapons are the same as what the US uses. The problem is that HIMARS and Excalibur were not designed to overcome jamming. In contrast, the British Storm Shadow missile has a terrain following feature in addition to GPS for targeting.

Princess Beatrice and Eugenie might assume royal duties. by Dune1032 in WorldNews

[–]Dune1032[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie don't have the star power of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle because they are not as attractive. The British government should hire Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as goodwill ambassadors to Commonwealth countries in order to strengthen ties with these countries. They would be paid per visit with money for funding the Royal Family. King Charles' agreement would not be required. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would be especially effective in nonwhite countries. Commonwealth countries would be helpful if Britain goes to war with Russia. During World War II, many Commonwealth countries fought with Britain.

Ukraine is a good testing ground for weapons. I'm surprised that the Pentagon didn't realize that weapons dependent on GPS for targeting could be jammed.

Incorrect. It is legal to contest results when the vote count is close. This usually means a recount. Overturning mean doing something illegal to change the results which is what Trump attempted to do. Ten fake electors in Arizona have been indicted.

Al Gore did accept the election results. See https://www.politico.com/story/2016/10/al-gore-donald-trump-results-230062 Also, there is a difference between contesting results and seeking to overturn the results which is what Trump did.

Biden is stupid. He criticized Johnson for delaying aid to Ukraine. Now, he restricts how Ukraine uses US weapons. Note that neither Biden nor Harris ever visited Ukraine. Probably because they are afraid to.

No, this is the peace deal that the UN should propose to Putin and Zelensky. Russia will be permitted to occupy territory it seized from Ukraine before the February 2022 invasion although the land would legally belong to Ukraine. Russia must withdraw from all land it seized after the invasion. NATO membership will remain as it is. The UN will be obligated to defend Ukraine if Russia invades again.

Biden should drop out. If he doesn't do so voluntarily, the Democratic leadership should force him out. Biden might be too old to comprehend reality. Remember Dianne Feinstein. His replacement should be a young moderate such as Josh Shapiro or Andy Beshear.
