Message from Sam Anderson in Nice Respectable People Group #general
It's a enough for a deterrent but people drastically over estimate nuclear arms, they could cast the world into turmoil but there simply isn't enough yield to kill everyone on earth or anything crazy. Perhaps at the height of the cold war you would have been closer.
oh yeah, for sure. people would still live
MAD is a weapon in itself
Plus with the globally integrated economies we have now, a war between the US and China would crash the global economy.
@Lawrence of Eurabia I have faith in him, he has already sent thousands of troops over to the border as we speak, but what *KIND* of troops is the important question.
He's probably getting ready to build it with the Army.
He already has the draft to declare a SoE on the Southern border. He either builds that wall or doesn't get the second call
we'll see, but i'm not to certain anymore
I can now claim the achievement of getting Jared Taylor to set up a Discord account
Good read, Donald Trump Jr. retweeted about it http://thefederalist.com/2019/02/04/congresss-vote-keep-war-afghanistan-sells-american-soldiers/
I think all the leaders involved in these disaster wars should be imprisoned for treason.
Banish every pro war politician to the places they waged war in
Now you live in iraq since you love it so much. Have fun
What's really cool about this movement is that it doesn't require me to let go of the good ideas that I had when I sympathized with the left
I was always anti-imperialist my entire life, but a few years ago, I had to choose between the neocon right and the ethnomasochist left
now I can keep my opposition to pointless wars while also being being against mass immigration
not that neo-cons were ever really against mass immigration, but at least they're moderately against illegals
Why don't politicians fight the wars themselves anymore?
We are ruled by an effete academic class.
Pretty sure the founding fathers advocated for the total opposite
George Washington led his troops in front of the ranks at times
Even tho he sucked at it.
He was a grand strategy General similar to Eisenhower, not a battle General
or that's what he was best at
In Denmark's "school general" election in which the country's 8th, 9th, and 10th graders all participated, the Danish conservative parties collectively won 51.2% of the vote.
The older I get the more I think Starship Troopers had it right. Service = Citizenship. No time in military service, no right to vote.
Biggest redpill in starship troopers is the longer we stay on earth the more likely our extinction
Would you guys recommend Starship Troopers? I've really liked the Foundation series. And I've been thinking about something similar, voting rights based on having "skin in the game". How that would be defined or determined, I'm not sure.
The devil is always in the details. Only 8.4% for the Danish People's Party.
Starship troopers is painful because it's grim future is so much brighter than our present.
Also well worth the read.
@Jakob-NY , The first time I read it was on my 1st deployment. After I finished it I wondered how we got into this mess, and it was that the decisions were made by people who had no skin In the game . It was written in the 50s if I’m correct, and it’s just as applicable now as it was then.
Corporal punishment for parents of criminals .... 🔥
If we started canning offenders,like Singapore, there would be a severe reduction in crime.
Yeah but Starship Troopers goes next level.
Sure does 😁
I wouldn’t mind at all serving in the military were it not Israeli proxy wars or destabilizing countries for profit
Maybe these parents would stop trying to be friends and start being Mom & Dad
The military is super gay
Eisenhower warned the country, no one listened
Starship Troopers military is sweet though
