    The coming weeks will expose fractures in the NATO alliance. Britain, for example, woke up this morning to learn that the once mighty pound Sterling, which once had twice the value of the US dollar, is now worth less than the dollar. That means that the Brits will be paying more for products they import from the United States.

    The US produces almost all of its own natural gas, and like other resources, the majority of imports are fulfilled by Canada or another country in the Western Hemisphere.

    While there might be short-term hiccups due to instability in the Old World, the US and Canada collectively have the largest capability of being resource independent. The fact that we trade with anyone outside of our immediate neighbors is about convenience more than necessity.

    No doubt Canada has potential, but when the tar sands pipeline was shut down due to a party it isn't as capable.

    The other major issue is rising interest rates and debt marurity for a lot of fossil fuel producers. I feel many may merge or go bankrupt. The latter will create added pressure.
    dergeist, sorry for being rude to you before. We probably had disagreements regarding politics etc, and there is alot of stuff i am restricted and cant do.

    but i think you are a good lad, and we have common ground despite our differences.

    anyway, please accept my apology for being a jerk to you in the past.

    No problem, it's water under the bridge. I apologise for being a bit of a prick to you.

    I understand your situation, hopefully we can engage in frutiful discussions in the future.
    they say the inflation over there in your place got to 10%
    how do you feel about that.. :hm

    It's forcing prices for everything to go up, and massively at that. The Conservatives could cut fuel duties and reduce the price of fuel by 40%, but they won't do that.

    The first happened on 12 march and seems just a generic protest against Draghi.
    Can't find news articles on it except stuff on italian Twitter, probably it was insignificant.

    The second happened a week ago and it wasn't about cost of living lol
    It was taxi people protesting against the 'ddl Concorrenza' ('law proposal on Competition' from Draghi, he wants to liberalize some sectors and one of these is the taxi sector that in Italy - from old laws regulating it - is not open to free competition from services like Uber).
    In that video you can see a sign with "fuck you uber".

    So these fuckers are protesting because they don't want their little "cartel" to be open to competition and thus improve their services (that are notoriously shit, no one in Italy like taxi drivers... except taxi drivers themselves lol).

    Those two tweets are literally fake news (from Russian trolls seeing the flag on their profile) :catsleep

    Damn, whos winning?

    Depends on what you define as winning, Russia is taking more territory but at a cost (sanctions and loss of equipment).
    I have heard somewhere that the EU sent 10% of its weapons to Ukraine, how accurate is this claim? :hmm
    dergeist
    dergeist
    Not sure they sent advanced (strategic) hardware, but the bulk of the small arms and spare munitions have been depleted, iirc.
    I am hearing that Poland might have some interest in taking west Ukraine under its control... :hmm
    do you think things might spiral out of control if Poland were to "attack" or take those territories in some way, shape or form?

    of course, assuming those Infos are accurate ... :cute

    It does, it claims Lviv and the area as historic Ukraine. However, I doubt they'll try now, they sent their tsnks over and Germany didn't gove yhem replacement tanks, so it's not really able to do much.

    I think he changed tact and claimed trolling, because he couldn't ban on empathy (I was). Besides the latter is not a reason to ban someone. Even though I didn't troll, I'm like how many people troll, bait and flame there on a daily basis, but he turns a blind eye.

    He's already told me there's no point raling about it, so there's no point appealing it. And in the past he's pretty much said he can interpret rhe rules how he wants, so not sure I'll even get anywhere.

    I'm mulling abandoning the section and letting it become an echo chamber. @blk can run wild and unchecked.

    I think he wanted me to start crying and have a breakdown ans try and raise them.

    Tbh it wouldn't be as interesting if there's no one posting contrary points of view, so i'm not for banning (unless we are talking about inappropriate posts) :catsleep
    is it me, or are those members who were saying that NATO is more united than ever and blah blah
    are crying and whining about how weak and divided it is, just now? :lmao

    Yes, that's exactly what they're doing. Although, in this case they're referring to the EU:mjlol

    Yeah, but the point at hand is how Germany is treating the afghans as less of human-being than the Ukrainians.
    otherwise, why kick them out for the Ukrainians (aside from racism and condescending look on the afghans people? )

    you see all that social science they badmouth folks for mentioning about in group preference and the like, it's all real, they subscribe to it too, and they default to that position when it suits them and they won't even be forthright about it from the off so that everyone knows where they stand.
    this ukraine instance being one, cause this is the civilised eurosphere now producing refugee's not some random war torn part of the middle east or africa's. wars that they made no less but i digress.

    they are simply doing what was always on the cards if the trigger so needed to be pulled on it.
    all these affected people were never people to them, just numbers. quite literally they are inventory but i probably get censored again for saying that and then the world follows suit on the sentiment a few months later.

    really the design is so sinister all that's left to do is marvel at it and see where it goes now :oldshrug
