Re: Historic handshake between Koreas

Peace often happens when one side gains enough leverage to force the other side to negotiate. N. Korean Nukes and Missile tech has advanced to the point that Americans were running for cover from a false missile alert. N. Korea has the leverage it needs and the N Korean leader has solidified his pow...

Re: Next 24 hours are super important (huge tensions regarding Syria)

The Syria bombings mean huge reconstruction contracts for the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's construction companies. Iran is now rebuilding Syria’s infrastructure, and is the main exporter of goods to Syria. "The Fruits of Iran's Victory in Syria" https://www.lawfareblog.com/fruits-irans-victory-syria

Re: What is Facebook?

Facebook buys your data from other places too, like the grocery store you shop at.

So even if you don’t post much they have a lot of data on you.

Btw the government is doing a lot more too with regards to monitoring you under the guise of terrorism but actually just to get more power.

Re: Next 24 hours are super important (huge tensions regarding Syria)

The Iranians, and Syrians have already evacuated all air bases and such so that the Americans can make there little TV sound bite with a few bombs.

It won’t make any difference.

They go back after the show is over.

Everybody knows whose in control now.

Re: FB slow to act in Myanmar

I don't think facebook is politically motivated but since it is a US based company it comes under pressure from US interest groups and the US government. This is why what Telegram, the free chat app, did might be a good model for establishing social media platforms that can operate more freely from ...

Re: FB slow to act in Myanmar

Facebook is the democratization of the media. Those that are complaining simply don't understand how to leverage the platform. Anyone with knowledge and a few hundred dollars in facebbok ads can accomplish what once only governments and large corporations could do. The pressure on Facebook is just m...

Re: Why being a loner may be good for your health

Isolation causes depression. This has been clinically proven. Is it being alone, or the feeling of being lonely? These two things are not synonymous. And to quote a line from one of Sartre's plays: "Hell is other people". :stirthepot: Even for those that enjoy being alone and choose to be alone, by...

Re: Americans will never give up their guns.

Did you notice how these Americans are always so overweight ?

They prepare for the unlikely terrorist or intruder while the real threat to their life is an eminent heart attack.

Re: "Shock and Awe". Do you remember that?

Iran said it would only accept a ceasefire if Saddam was dead, Iraq had a new Government, and paid reparations. That is, the Iranians needlessly extended the war for another 6 years. OK. Thanks. However, my intuition is Iran would have not taken over Syria if they won. Saddam was a US puppet & prob...

Re: "Shock and Awe". Do you remember that?

You make it sounds like Iran was the aggressor in that war. Explain more, thanks. Iraq invaded Iran and took over the oil producing regions of Iran. But after the first year or so, Iran had already pushed them back into their own borders. At this point, Saddam asked for a permanent ceasefire. He as...
