    Actually, rolling over for the Russians in Syria ws the worst example of Obama and his foreign policy. Kerry's "That'll never happen" speech was the high point for Putin. Closely followed by letting them take the Crimea. Seen any real benefits like that from Trump?

    Doing what is minimally possible does not require or indicate leadership. That's the fucking point.

    No Obama was a manipulator not a leader. A leader would have actually developed a route to single payer without admitting on film that the ACA was intended to be a mess that could only be saved by single payer. A leader would convince people instead of needing to go to the supreme court to convince the people that forcing them to buy a commercial product was a tax. Of course, it has now been shown that it is easy to dump that. A leader would have gotten the DREAM act through congress to change the existing US immigration law instead of needing to set up a DACA program to circumvent US them. A leader would have been able to convince the people of his vision and not lost the house after two years and the presidency when his terms expired. Hope is a wish. There is an old homily. Wish in one hand and shit in the other. See which one fills up first.
  4. OK, well, except for the Crimean part.

    Of course it is. Folks are afraid of climate change. Folks are afraid that if they don't have a college education that they can't make a living. Folks are afraid that they can't pay back the money they borrowed to get a useless degree. Folks are afraid that they can't pay for their healthcare. Folks fear uncontrolled immigration. Politicians can also invoke envy. Yeah, you have a house and a car and a job but other people have more. You have to hate and fear those bastards so you can take their stuff. In your terms, who was our last real leader?

    Being smart does not make you right or able to predict the future. Both Teller and McNamara were really smart people. In fact, there are really smart people on both sides of every political argument. The true fact is both sides are lying to gain power over others.

    Bullshit. The Nazi's were working on the same device and the Japanese actually had two programs competing for the same resources.

    Yeah, and some of those geniuses also felt that it was bad for the US to be the only country with nuclear weapons and shared their 'genius' with the Soviet Union. The doomsday clock is a political tool.

    That's the essence of every political schtick.

    The solution was well underway before it became an over-hyped crisis. It was basically a logistical problem to those, like myself, who were working it.

    Let me explain something that seems beyond your comprehension. The Doomsday Clock was created by the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists. These are the same people who brought you the various forms of nuclear weapons and those nuclear power plants now considered so environmentally dreadful. Why do you place such faith in their judgement? The clock is a political ploy to instill fear and the hope of salvation. Coincidentally, the Nobel prizes are funded by the invention of dynamite.
  12. A couple of weeks ago I was in Hong Kong and talked to one of the locals about the current political situation there. His view was that China actually wanted the turmoil as an outlet for dissidents. In the end, those who truly hate the situation will move away and everyone else will fall into line. They just need patience. If it looks like anyone is becoming an effective leader there is pressure on their family. There is actually more on those who are near the leadership in secondary positions. Taiwan is also concerned about China. One fellow described it as we are sort of engaged, we sleep together but Taiwan doesn't want to get married. Then, there is Cambodia that is so corrupt that it might as well be a Chinese territory. https://globalriskinsights.com/2019/10/chinese-naval-base-in-cambodia/

    It's a way to sell fear and the hope of salvation.

    Are you somehow under the foolish impression that the nuclear issues with NK and Iran were actually solved or came into existence in January 2016?
