Are the Democrats about to cook up a fake war

A lot of this was/is simultaneously true of the Ukraine - we have no idea what their attrition rate is and how they're replenishing men at the front or what training they have. We do know that Russia has 3-4 times the population.


How do we know what he's going to do? Does he see this as a must-win situation? How are we able to read his thoughts? Admittedly, he talked about this at the beginning and didn't do it, so maybe we assume he therefore won't. Seems like Washington wants him to as it's now incandescently obvious that they wanted this situation with Russia. I haven't seen Washington this committed to a war since 2003.


They are, but from the RUssian point-of-view they're locked out of economic cooperation already and the sanctions seem to be hurting both sides. This was John Robb's point about there being not much room to escalate except to WWIII and nuclear war.


Well, nuclear radiation from certain isotopes lasts a really long time. Look at Chernobyl.
Lol.

Great movie.

Watch it in full here.

"Although there'd been "doomsday dramas" before it, Stanley Kramer's On the Beach was considered the first "important" entry in this genre when originally released in 1959. Based on the novel by Nevil Shute, the film is set in the future (1964) when virtually all life on earth has been exterminated by the radioactive residue of a nuclear holocaust. Only Australia has been spared, but it's only a matter of time before everyone Down Under also succumbs to radiation poisoning. With only a short time left on earth, the Australian population reacts in different ways: some go on a nonstop binge of revelry, while others eagerly consume the suicide pills being issued by the government. When the possibility arises that rains have washed the atmosphere clean in the Northern hemisphere, a submarine commander (Gregory Peck) and his men head to San Diego, where faint radio signals have been emanating. The movie's all-star cast includes: Peck as the stalwart sub captain, Ava Gardner as his emotionally disturbed lover, Fred Astaire as a guilt-wracked nuclear scientist, and Anthony Perkins and Donna Anderson as the "just starting out in life" married couple. "

“US war games predict that a conflict involving use of tactical nuclear weapons will quickly spiral out of control,” the Union of Concerned Scientists blog said.

“A Princeton University simulation of a US-Russian conflict that begins with the use of a tactical nuclear weapon predicts rapid escalation that would leave more than 90 million people dead and injured,” it said.
Sounds good! Fortunately we have sane people running our government who will avert this catastrophe:

Looks like I've been deepfaked! What's real and what's fake anymore?!?
Son, this is the erBB. We ain't going down like a punkass bitch. This is clearly real; we just need to figure out where this is from.

I am guessing USA because it's a CDC graphic:


This predates the tweet by 5 days.

@Subway are you counter-subwaying this subwayage? Have you been in Ireland longer than five days - I think yes? Do you recognize the windows or the door or something that makes it not the NYC subway such that you're confident in subwaylaying this assertion?

The CDC radiation poster is part of the radiation awareness program held every September.

The image of the poster on a subway is from New Jersey, not NYC.
