The Simulation... Assumption

https://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/we-spoke-to-an-mit-computer-scientists-about-the-simulation-hypothesis/ Are we "A.I. programs running on the basement servers of some advanced future civilization?" Well, that would explain a lot ... I should remark that the above speculation, borne of a 2003...

"As we say in Persian"

"As we say in Persian" Or what is the position of Iran about the arm wrestle the US have imposed on them. In Moscow on Wednesday, Deputy Foreign Minister Seyed Sajjadpour told reporters there can’t be dialog with the U.S. while “unjust” sanctions remain. “ As we say in Persian, it was not my aunt w...

It's only a matter of time until we are free of the empire. Let's hope the warmongers in Washington will not blow up the world before that happens.
Only a matter of time until we are free of THAT empire. Yes.

Then, there will be other(s).

Have no illusion. The nature of man has not changed.

Re: Australia leads "secret" trade negotiations that will sideline the US

I am not a pacifist. I will fight to defend myself, my family, my community, my country. But I do not accept any war of aggression. And that's why I have such a critical position in respect of the US. I think you have made your position clear, Sertorio. We are all aware of it :) In 1914 everybody w...

Re: Jacka's Mob, or who was Batman's boss

Now tell me Alexis: what does this nostalgia-flashback to WW1 have to do with Australia negotiating a new multilateral Asia-Pacific trade pact? I dislike the fact that this forum is organized in one big pool of threads, leading to many smalls threads being started then being forgotten as they go do...

Re: Jacka's Mob, or who was Batman's boss

I only recognize two types of war hero: the one who is willing to die in the defense of his people, and the one who is willing to die to protect innocent civilians from the violence of war. There weren't many of those in WW I, or in any of the subsequent wars... Ok, Sertorio, then just for you & fr...

Jacka's Mob, or who was Batman's boss

Here is a little & nice video to commemorate Albert Jacka, who I understand all Australians know, but maybe not so many people outside Australia. At least, I didn't know him. And I'm glad I now know his story. :) In a nutshell, Albert Jacka was an Australian superhero who fought during WWI, sort of ...

Iran exposes European and Chinese weakness.

:) Bluster all you want to Sertorio . Europe is in thrall to the United States because it cannot get its act together. :lol: That is true. Strong differences of view between France and Germany are the root of European inaction re: Iranian situation. The U.S. position on Iran has shown that the EU’s...

Re: "War With Iran Would Be a Disaster"

Indeed, neither the US nor anybody else should endeavour to invade and occupy Iran, under pretext of making it into a better country with a better regime. That would result in a much bigger disaster than Iraq 2003-11 was. How so? Iranians have been protesting against their government for decades no...

Re: "War With Iran Would Be a Disaster"

Why doesn't Iran stop supporting terrorism? That question has no bearing to whether it's a good idea for the US to push Iran in a corner by strangling their economy efficiently at the risk of them lashing out and putting Gulf oil trade and world economy in tatters. Yeah, Iran has the US right where...
