A lot of unconfirmed reports that Yanukovych and some of his top allies have either fled by air to Kharkiv or from Kharkiv to Russia.

Great news!
127  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Obama pisses China off meets with Dalai Lama in the White House on: February 21, 2014, 04:35:52 pm
The Dali Lama is such a crock. China annexing Tibet was for the best in comparison to the way that place was run when before. The Dali Lama isn't even useful to America anymore. Tibet will never be "free" again. It is part of China now and that's all there is to it.

This is why if I were a Syrian I would reluctantly support Assad.

Well, if you think that by getting involved in the way you spoke of now, and totally destablizing Central Europe when the peaceful resolutuion is still possible, you're going to advance the U.S. interest, then you're just naive. If only it will make Putin very happy.

The idea isn't to prevent a peaceful resolution, it is to make sure that said resolution is in favor of the faction which benefits our interests. The idea is to bring Ukraine close to the EU in the long-term. This is a chance to peel a vassal away from Russia.
130  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Ted Cruz's "heart weeps" over gay rights on: February 21, 2014, 04:29:19 pm
Cruz needs a psychiatrist too. He has to be suffering from something if he actually ever thought that he could get Obama to repeal Obamacare.

He didn't.

Another right-wing activist judge for the impeachment block.
132  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Plan to split California into 6 states advances on: February 21, 2014, 04:27:51 pm
This reminds me of the epic timeline Rumsfeldia: Fear and Loathing in the Decade of Tears.
133  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How horrible would Gov. Perry do? on: February 21, 2014, 02:54:59 pm
In a general election? Perry VS Clinton:



Give or take Indiana/Georgia.
134  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Writer Crashes Wall Street Frat Party (pics): on: February 21, 2014, 02:47:28 pm
Why does this thread say "(pics)" but contain no pics?

Because the pics are in the video.
135  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Pro-EU demonstrations in Ukraine on: February 21, 2014, 02:46:42 pm
Go meddle in your own f**king hemisphere, please.

Our interests expand beyond our own hemisphere, sorry.
136  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Scott Walker scandal?? on: February 20, 2014, 03:14:16 pm
How is his Deputy Chief being convicted of a felony, and he being aware of and complicit in the illegal activity not an issue!?

Because "campaigning on county time" is kind of a ridiculous charge to begin with? I mean, c'mon this is something that literally everyone involved in politics at any serious level does.
137  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Russian Security forces attack Pussy Riot in Sochi on: February 20, 2014, 03:09:51 pm
I'm no fan of Putin but Pussy Riot is just retarded. It's hard for me to get worked up over some jackasses who think they are "cool" and "deep" getting some taught some basic decency.

I've always though that genera of "music" was just degeneracy anyways.
138  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Scott Walker scandal?? on: February 20, 2014, 12:59:43 pm
This happens in literally every office of an elected official.

Start video at 5:16 for the good part.

This thread reminds me for some reason of what a joke network Russia Today is, and how it's frustrating that so many people think they are being "alternative" by watching it.
141  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Pro-EU demonstrations in Ukraine on: February 20, 2014, 12:05:34 pm
Did we slap sanctions on Bahrain when they murdered protesters? Oh wait no, they're our ally so it's okay.

Well of course. It would be stupid to make foreign policy solely on humanitarian grounds. The goal is to gain influence and power, not to be nice and moral.

The reason I think the West should support the "rebels" in this case is almost solely to undermine Russia.
142  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Pro-EU demonstrations in Ukraine on: February 19, 2014, 09:31:17 am
If this escalates into a virtual civil war, remember Hungary 1956.

I don't think the EU or NATO would allow a full-scale Russian invasion of the Ukraine.

Just finished and already can't wait for Season 3!
144  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: U.N; North Korea responsible for Nazi-like atrocities. on: February 18, 2014, 01:54:59 pm
I'm not disputing the gross insanity and brutality of the Kims, but they haven't attempted to mass-exterminate entire races of people (though TBF there are basically no minorities in either Korea) or embark on aggressive global conquest.

This is more a consequence of circumstance then intent.
145  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Woodrow Wilson on: February 15, 2014, 10:20:32 pm
Voted FF.

It's always perplexed me though how someone so enlightened about foreign policy and an economic progressive could at the same time be so utterly backwards in his racism and free speech infringements during WWI. He was a product of his time I guess.
146  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Fascist uprising in Venezuela on: February 15, 2014, 10:09:56 pm
Can people please stop using the word "fascist" to describe any quasi-authoritarian movement they disagree with? Because it's really fing annoying.

"Fascist" should only refer to movements that actually endorse the tenets of…well…fascism.

This. "Fascism" =/= "Anything To The Right Of Socialism". It's like when conservatives say anything to the left is "full blown Socialism".
147  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Breivik on hunger strike: Wants his Playstation 2 replaced with Playstation 3 on: February 15, 2014, 10:04:07 pm
I want to hurt HIM.

This attitude is very wrong and you should work on changing it.

This is the mentality of a victim.
148  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Universal Car Insurance? on: February 14, 2014, 09:46:59 pm
Oh, btw, don't want to pay Car Insurance? The answer is simple: Don't bother driving.

Things don't work that way in America. Not everyone lives in a big city.
149  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Belgian Parliament pushes through euthanasia for children on: February 13, 2014, 08:54:40 pm
And the child?

I don't think assisted suicide should be legal for anyone under the age of 18. I just can't see a seven year old being able to make a rational decision on the matter.

Obviously the child would have to be the one who initially requested it. It goes without saying.

No. It introduces too many variables for any campaign to be comfortable with.
