Would parts really be a problem? I would heavily assume the arms manufacturer creed of "if I don't sell it to them, someone else will" would apply. A bit of lobbying and trade deal/sanctions and sooner or later its all operational enough.

And that's without random idiot acts, just corporate logic.

Hells, the way reality currently works there was probably never a war to begin with.

Which cities are you referring to, Faust? I've tried looking but obviously there's a lot of Afghanistan news lately.

As for going back in...depends. I can't see Biden doing a U-turn, even in light of current events. I can see him launching drone strikes at whomever is deemed the responsible party...but in the longer term it will depend how much the Taliban pivot between their "responsible members of the international community with extreme views" and "actually supporting international terrorism and genocide" wings.

From the reports  of various arms, biometric data, aircraft etc. That got abandoned, it feels like 1 wing got a bit of bonus.

Is it just me that finds it incredible that not only has a 20 odd year conflict been totally lost, the fleeing nations have chosen to arm the erstwhile for to fuck on the way out? Realistically, if its a logistics problem and you just can't shift all your shit in time, moving it into a big pile and throwing a match is surely both the spiteful and sensible option. This is shit that is designed to explode. The problem can literally solve itself.

So, with more than a few states probably willing to supply training, parts etc. I'm cutting my guess down to 2 and a half. Bidens not got the balls to launch what I assume would be needed to be several hundred drone strikes in a leaving blitzkrieg and doing so would make the US into a bit of a pariah state. Easier to wait for an atrocity or two and start again. Probably better for the war economy too.

So, what's the current expectation on going back? I was guessing 5 years or so, but with a couple of bombs today in kabul I'm cutting that to under 3. One successful bombing on us/associates soil and its prime fodder for a particular kind of electioneering.

I'm in the UK.

I can strongly empathise with both an island nation and urge to do a coup. And if I did, I'd be sure at least two other fucks would join in. Itd Probably be at least be between farage, piers Morgan, count binface, p3nt Cain, blair and me. And I'm reasonably certain we're each waiting for the other to go first.

I have heard good things about Tyranny. I picked it up for free from the Epic store, but I've not yet committed myself to sitting down and giving it a playthrough

Have you given this a fair try yet? I quite liked it, and there are a few nice "betrayal! moments. Which only happen if you really look for them, but that's actually quite nicely done too.

Oh, didn't know it was time for another one yet.

I'm due to emerge from the cave at some point in the next few weeks, for perhaps 4 days. I have seen you've all made great progress with that global warming shit while I've been underground.

Reminder: unnecessary personal posts interesting only to the poster are a mandatory part of death rattle threads. Expecting at least 2 recipes by page 5.

Not been lurking for a few weeks, this is the new open bar, right?

From what I've seen so far, there's some kind of 3 way power struggle going on, which is great. Nothing like trying to do a kind of coup and having 2 other fucks join in.

So, might just be the start of a huge shitshow.

Much obliged gents, will dig into it over the next few weeks.

I'm honestly surprised more isn't being made of this generally.

Hey Cain, what's the deal with the Haitian assassination? Big bag of fun?

Accurately sums up launch of gb news. No one yet pushing the legatum links but from a quick look that's a whole other shitshow.

Fucking useless is about right. How every pmqs is not a public flogging is just bewildering.

I'm honestly considering an open letter to the chap. The lawyer shtick isn't working, you need someone willing to throw pig Latin in his face and mock the fucker until he does the decent thing and hangs himself. Possibly harsh, but I can tell you of around 130,000 others that would probably agree.

So at the last count, 6 sleaze enquiries, more overt corruption than can be easily summarised and the total resignations stands at, er, 1. Over none of the above.

"the last 36 hours has been eye opening". Silly bastard. You could have worked this out at any time over the last 36 YEARS

Reports now of 2 herniated discs. I'm not au fait with current torture methodology, but I would guess the back and head are a bit off limits due to the chances of an accidental bugger up.

There's no way he's going to be able to walk out of prison at this rate. Assuming no one fucks up and he survives his sentence.
