Even if covert supply by sea is the more realistic option, I'm just imagining the size and design of tunnel needed to fit a whole rear end SRBM through it.

Has Elon hosed with Starlink there yet? Or is it not operating there yet?

No ground stations in the area to provide coverage.

e: Nearest one is about 1200 km away in Turkey, and I think the ground stations are only good to about 800 km on average.

So what's everyone's thoughts on which airbase the US is going to take over and the CAF is going to set up a Timmy's at?

quote:

Oct 30 (Reuters) - Maria Julia Assis was sitting down to a meal in her terraced home in north London when her 6-year-old son ran into the dining room, his face pale.

The puzzle game on his Android phone had been interrupted by a video showing Hamas militants, terrified Israeli families and blurred graphic footage. Over a black screen, a message from the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs told the first grader: "WE WILL MAKE SURE THAT THOSE WHO HARM US PAY A HEAVY PRICE."

Assis, a 28-year-old barista from Brazil, said that the ad left her son shaken and she quickly deleted the game.

[...]

Reuters documented six cases – in Britain, France, Austria, Germany and Holland – where people had seen the same or similar ads as Assis' son or said their children had seen them. In the Assis family's case, the ads appeared in a game called "Alice's Mergeland" made by a developer called LazyDog Game. Other ads appeared on family-friendly digital pastimes such as the block-building game "Stack," puzzle game "Balls'n Ropes," "Solitaire: Card Game 2023," and run-and-jump adventure "Subway Surfers."

Israel confirmed it was their ad, but also said "we told the ad companies it wasn't supposed to end up in kids' games" as if that makes everything better. Christ.

I give it less than 48 hours before one side or the other (or maybe both at the same time) break the ceasefire.

Man, I don’t think anyone had “forced circumcision of enemy combatants” on their war crimes bingo card for this one :stare:

Actually, this raises a question: seeing as there’s no way you could spin it as necessary medical procedures, if done on a captured combatant that would count as mutilation of a POW and thus be against some kind of international law of war, right?

Is this the 2023 version of "IF TRUMP WINS I'M MOVING TO CANADA, A GOOD COUNTRY WHERE NOTHING BAD EVER HAPPENS" or something?

Because much like how lol I had bad news for those folks about the state of social and racial justice in Canada, lol I have bad news about every developed country ever

swear to God i thought one of us in dnd asked at some point, maybe they had a VPN policy that they hosed up

I'm honestly surprised it's not just general policy at this point to altcheck any new account that immediately starts posting in the politics forums. Like, that'd catch 90% of reregs that aren't the five accounts a day spam guy.

As I recall she came back a few years later saying that her husband was possibly faking being allergic to their dogs and she was on Lexapro, so, Shim was right.

I'd assume they have more than a handful given their signalled willingness to use them in the event Israel fell.

IIRC one of the more recent US secretaries of state had estimated around 200, yeah. What kind of delivery systems they have, I don't know, but even with IRBM capability that's enough to return every major population center in EMEA to the dirt.

It should be noted that Rosatom is building them (as they did with completing Bushehr I), so given what's going on in Eastern Europe, there's a possibility the two additional VVER units might never get finished.
