Quote from: seafoid on February 29, 2024, 03:18:18 PMGenocidal regimes don't tend to have a long shelf life in the modern era. The Khmer Rouge, Interahamwe and Nazi Party were all removed from power.

Unless some prominent nation has the balls to call out the Israeli Government / IDF for the shower of absolute tramps they are hard to see things changing soon.  Everyday goes by Netanyahu makes Putin look like Mother Teresa.
Israel is deteriorating on a daily basis. Biden thinks he can support Israel and get reelected. Let's just say that is a long time to November.
Bidens useless but Trump would be no better on the Israel question

Trump would be absolutely worse. The evangelical Christian base of the Republican party believe that the founding of the State of Israel is a sign of the end times and Jesus returning. They have no interest in anything like a Palestinian state. At least there is some desire for a solution on the Democratic side.

What does Tucker have to say?
Tucker is too overcome by the quality of Moscow's subways to make any comment.

It's ok though, fans of some other teams resent Taylor Swift.
America is a mad country. That is awful.

Were there many fatalities?

Israel: Palestinians Given Ample Time To Evacuate To Nearby Bombing Sites

JERUSALEM—In response to criticism surrounding the death toll during its ongoing incursion into Gaza, representatives from the Israeli government Wednesday emphasized that warnings sent to Palestinian civilians provided them with ample time to evacuate to nearby bombing sites. "We are being very careful and thorough as we carry out our targeted strikes, and I can say, without question, that Palestinians are given more than enough time to leave their residences and find shelter in a future bombardment target," said Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon, adding that whether alerted by phone, text message, or leaflet, Palestinians have sufficient opportunity to relocate to any number of locations marked for imminent aerial strikes. "Giving Palestinian civilians the chance to seek safety in the home of a family member or friend that will be shelled to rubble in the next 48 hours is a gesture we deserve praise for, not condemnation. In fact, this initiative has been a major success in this campaign." Ya'alon added that since there were numerous bombing sites Palestinians could take shelter in, he was not responsible for whatever happened to people who chose to stay home.

There has been a losing bonus point awarded in all the games that didn't involve Ireland. A losing bonus point was never really on in either of Ireland's games.

Quote from: JimStynes on February 07, 2024, 10:41:40 PMBooked New York marathon for November! Anyone ever done it?
I live in New York and I have done it 8 times. Nothing too fast, my best time is 3:56. It is the only marathon that I have done so I can't compare it with anything else but I loved it.
