This sure is a lot of saber rattling. Though I guess if Pelosi quits at this point the US would also look weak.

Also this summer is so hot I could do with a nuclear winter anyway

China just closed their air space along the coast, locals report Chinese jets are heading to the Taiwan straight.

China has quite a few domestic issues so this "crisis" is great for their propaganda.
The question is who blinks first and if the US was right to think that the Chinese were bluffing and grand standing.

She's close to landing now but they could also prevent her from leaving of course.

Pelosi has landed. A big W for freedom, a big L for the communist losers.

They can't do shit.

Super Power China can't stop a single plane from landing literally next door.  :lol

Smirnoff has landed :cruise

thanks to China's grand standing the entire world has seen them take this L in real time.

See Democrats it isn't that hard, just bomb a few terrorists and hand out some L to the communists.

Sunak is at 26%, Liz Truss is at 60%.

The libs wondered for 4 years, what could be worse than Boris Johnson and Donald Trump leading the free world?
Well Liz Truss and Donald Trump maybe.

I don't want to look through this thing just to find out, was there no follow up when she proposed age-gating the entire internet?

This is actually part of why I hate "debates" because usually the moderators are too stupid to realize the candidate just said something insane they should be able to immediately ask about and that's the actual service they should provide rather than trying to stir shit claiming that "holds them accountable" about irrelevant shit. Traditionally, the UK media has been slightly better at going "what the fuck did you just say?"

Another L for Nintex

Quote
The Dutch government declared a national water shortage Wednesday caused by the hot, dry summer that is parching much of Europe, and formed a national team to draw up measures to manage supplies, while asking the public to also chip in with savings.

“The water shortage is already having a negative effect on shipping and agriculture in particular,” said Minister of Infrastructure and Water Management Mark Harbers.

lol that's fucking bullshit. They make up new 'crises' every day to blame on Putin.
If he's making everything so horrible just declare war already and level the Kremlin, even better give me command of NATO for a week and I will mop up China and Russia.

If you ever wonder why we haven't had a nuclear armageddon in the last 70 years, it's because no Nintex has made it to power.

Why is no one worried that the UK is about to give control over 225 live nuclear warheads to Liz Truss  :doge



Putin has been sitting on his nukes for 20 years and mostly benefits from ground wars against countries without a strong air force.

How and why Russia never managed to establish air superiority will probably be a topic for the various military think tanks for quite a while.

Good for Ukraine though.

The fact that Russia apparently has no working anti-air or missile defense systems to protect their bases seems to be easily ignored.

But they do have Steven Seagal so it's about even.

It'd be a real shame if those people living in an annexed province of another country were caught up in the war started by their president...
