Re: Has Impeachment Weakened the United States

We believe, here in Canada, that Trump is more liked by what the media says. I've found that you need to add 10 points to any polling number for a Republican to get the actual number and to compensate for media bias. Polls are also just a snapshot of how people feel. What's really important during ...

Re: Princeton nuclear war simulation

I don't think it would require a push into Russian territory to evoke a nuclear response. The fear of such is enough. Remember, the Russians are hardwired into fearing invasion. They also could make the mistake of thinking that a nuclear strike would frighten off NATO, so an attack on their territo...

Re: Explosion rocks Iranian tanker near Saudi port city of Jeddah, oil spilling into Red Sea - reports

It doesn't surprise me that Israel may be responsible for the explosion and subsequent oil spill. It wouldn't be the first time the Jewish State has put it's politics and military actions above environmental and humanitarian concerns. I hope the UN continues to keep a critical eye on Israel as much...

Re: Princeton nuclear war simulation

idk. Maybe when they are talking about immediate casualties. I do question their theory that 5-10 nuclear warheads would be used on each city. That seems like overkill. Yeah. This strikes me as more of a 1980s-1990s nuclear war scenario than anything 21st century. Under what conditions would NATO b...

Re: US/Iran/Saudi Tentions

The movement of assets across the US is hardly classified information, and as has been already discussed, the videos are already on YouTube. Discussing that information here is well within our bounds of OSINT, and believe me is nothing our Iranian friends don't already know via Russian SATINT. Cros...

Re: 20 September : Yemen's Houthis say will stop all attacks on Saudi Arabia

I doubt anything of substance will happen. Minor attacks and skirmishes with proxies to turn up the heat. We're just in a very frosty Cold War right now is all. We learned all the lessons of the past one

Re: US and Saudi Arabia response on criticall infrastructure

Does Iran want to go to war? From their point of view, what does engaging in one provocation after another, each more egregious than the last, serve? Is it just desperation? Do they believe that they can force the US back to the negotiating table? Or is it possible that they think that they can giv...
