Re: Afghan debacle cedes Eurasia to the dragon and bear.

I just wish that our idiot government here in Australia had taken this into account before committing my country to this AUKUS deal as those words describes exactly what they have done. That's why I favour a strong partnership between Russia and Europe, capable of counterbalancing China's power . A...

The one reason I read here that nuclear subs can be detected more easily because of heat does not make a lot of sense, outside shallow waters, where they can be easily optically detect a...

Re: Afghan debacle cedes Eurasia to the dragon and bear.

I don’t believe in evil myself. You don't think that Hitler was evil? He was disturbed. Being "disturbed" and being a perpetrator of evil are quite compatable states .
