The Captain Marvel sequel should have had just one Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers. Carol Danvers' memory was taken from her. A subplot should be Carol Danvers trying to remember her past. Maria could tell her that she had a boyfriend. Carol would then meet him, and the romance is rekindled. Interpersonal relationships should be a part of MCU movies especially romantic love, the most pleasurable emotion humans can feel. Fighting should revolve around these interpersonal relationship. The MCU has lost sight of this. That is the reason they are not doing as well as previously. It began with Spiderman: No Way Home. The movie did very well giving the MCU the illusion it was on the right path. Note three Spider-Mans and three Marvels but Spider-Man: No Way Home might have done well because people wanted to see Tom Holland and Zendaya. However, the MCU foolishly broke up Peter and MJ despite them being part of the comic book. In Spider-Man: No Way Home, Dr. Strange should have made the world forget Peter was Spider-Man not the existence of Peter Parker. The romance between Peter and MJ would have continued in following movies. A following movie could touch on MJ's background. The MCU should want the audience to feel the pleasure of romantic love through Peter and MJ.

It is a beautiful photo. The photographer got an excellent shot. However, the significance remains to be seen. When US Marines raised the US flag on Mt. Suribachi, it signified the US victory in the Battle of Iwo Jima. But if the assassin was simply a man with mental problems, what would be the meaning of the photo? How many people in the US survive murder attempts. If the assassin was opposed to Trump's agenda, it would show Trump defiant to an attempt to silence him. Actually, the real meaning of the photo could be the courage of the Secret Service protecting Trump with their bodies. That is being American which would be what the flag signifies.

Don't wait until 2028, the Democratic leadership should replace Biden immediately. If Trump becomes president, he will endanger democracy. Remember that the Nazi Party rose to power because the democratic Weimar Republic could not control inflation. Presently, inflation is high, and the US is being flooded with migrants from the southern border. Trump will exploit this. Trump is a good speaker although not as good as Hitler.

Censorship-Industrial Complex Loses Bladder Control Over New Study Implicating mRNA Covid-19 Vaccines in Global Excess Mortality — Headlines — June 20, 2024 by carn0ld03 in WorldNews

From https://theconversation.com/covid-vaccines-saved-millions-of-lives-linking-them-to-excess-deaths-is-a-mistake-231776

If the vaccination campaign was contributing to the excess deaths that we have seen in recent years, then we should expect to see more deaths in people who have been vaccinated than in those who have not. The most reliable analysis in this regard was done by the UK’s Office for National Statistics (ONS). In this analysis, the ONS matched death registrations with the vaccine histories of each death recorded. They then calculated “age-standardised death rates” to account for age differences between those vaccinated and those not.

What the ONS found was that in all months from April 2021 to May 2023, the death rate from all causes was higher in the unvaccinated than in people who had been vaccinated at least once.

If Biden is afraid of Trump being elected, he should step down and make room for someone who has a better chance of beating Trump such as Josh Shapiro or Andy Beshear. Obama also expressed concern about Trump being elected. Then he should tell Biden to step down. If he refuses, he and other Democratic leaders should force him to step down. Obama is supposed to be smart. Can't he see that people don't like Biden? Can't he see that it would be better to have a young Democrat run against Trump? Then it would be a matchup between a young Democrat and an elderly Trump, a sharper contrast than Kennedy vs Nixon. Perhaps Obama is only academically smart.

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

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.

Biden is stupid in letting the Israel Hamas war continue. This is the proposal Biden should offer 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. The conflict might not be confined to Israel and Iran. If the US attacks Iran, Russia might join Iran's side.

Interesting take on the Ukranian conflict by Musky in politics

[–]Dune1032 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Russia launched a two-pronged attack in 2022 in an attempt to take Kyiv, but Russian military incompetence and ferocious Ukrainian resistance forced the Russians to abandon the assault. Russia did not just play defense. They attacked Bakhmut. Presently they are attacking Avdiivka. Russian losses are far greater than that of Ukraine. The reason is the use of human wave attacks. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwkIsnTn01E&t=64s 1:39 into video. The Russians use this tactic because of their vast manpower. Ukraine because of their limited manpower is more careful in how they're used. In their 2023 counteroffensive, Ukraine had to abandon large scale attacks because they were suffering unsustainable losses attempting to break through deep minefields. Consequently, Ukraine had to resort to small unit assaults. Russia's present strategy is probably a war of attrition hoping that the West will abandon Ukraine. Ukraine's strategy is probably to wait until the F-16s arrive. In the meantime, they can hit targets deep in Russian-held territory with their longer range ATACMs.
