I'm not very familiar with the post-collapse spy games, but I could do a semi :effort: post about some of the games that went on between the two during the cold war, and some of the CIAs failures in the cold war.
However, basically the CIA is very good at 3things:

1. Violating its charter ie: being used to spy on american citizens under executive pressure. (Nixon lol but also Truman and jfk/bobby kennedy )

2. Showing up with a briefcase full of cash for whoever decided they hate communism this week ( South America / Africa)

3. Allowing intelligence to become politizied.


Im traveling for work this week through next tuesday though, so it wouldn't be until im home.

Wow those are some very insightful + original points u presented there. You must come across as a real knowledgeable dude at frat parties. CIA is an oxymoron amirite?

I mean my post was short, because again phone posting, but im not trying to be a douche and he asked? I can cite historical examples and compare and contrast the CIA with the KGB directorates and their satellites for all of the above and maybe we can have a discussion about it and poo poo, but if people aren't interested thats fine too.

*back to lurking*

I am genuinely interested in a response to Courthouse's question.

In other news, Thailand is now a military dictatorship.

Well yeah, for the umpteenth time in the last 80-odd years. There have been so many Thai coups that there is disagreement among experts about the exact number. That article even says "at least Thailand's 12th since 1932."

Malpractice suits can also be a rough indicator of risk. From 2006 to 2010, the government paid an annual average of more than $100 million in malpractice claims from surgical, maternity and neonatal care, records show. It would be paying far more if not for one salient reality of military health care: Active-duty service members are required to use military hospitals and clinics, but unlike the other patients, they may not sue. If they could, the Congressional Budget Office estimated in 2010, the military’s paid claims would triple.

I basically never have strong political opinions on anything, even supposedly clear-cut issues like the systematic murder of unborn children or civil rights for gays, but somehow I am 100% on the Israeli government's side here. The few people in that thread actually making arguments instead of dogpiling the IDF dude are pretending like Hamas was a peaceful organization not at all bent on annihilating the Jews until like 5 days ago when an Israeli bomb killed a kid AND THAT CROSSED THE LINE.

e: Even Hamas says that they launched hundreds of missiles at civilian targets (including a nuclear power plant) this week to avenge six militants who died when a literal terrorist tunnel collapsed. DnD is now continues to invent its own propaganda.

Portland has most of the same cultural problems that come with being a move destination for white twenty-something occupy-wall-street twits, not much in the way of natural beauty, and worse food. Glass Portland! Seattle can be saved!

I call this "Democracy Dilemma". The people you want least to be engaged in politics are usually the ones who have all the time in the world to do just that.

There's no dilemma as far as I'm concerned. America will prosper again under the benevolent stewardship of white male landowners.

Welp. I think any vestiges of good will the world could have for Israel just got pissed out all over the ground.

I agree, this meticulously researched HuffPo/Buzzfeed/Breitbart article is the last straw that will turn the tide of world opinion once and for all, mixed metaphors be damned. This 200 word blog post, which consists entirely of hyperlinks, quotes of real journalists, and "clever" snark will finally
