Why North Korea stands no chance against US

Comment: 3 days ago

My point exactly: the first part (destroying NK missiles) is easy, but the second part isn't.

Why would the US be any more successful this time, considering their experiences in the Vietnam and the Korean wars?

Why North Korea stands no chance against US

"No chance against the US"? Depends on the type of conflict.

North Vietnam had "no chance" against the US, Afghanistan had "no chance" against the old Soviet Union, the IRA had "no chance" against Britain.

Agreed, in a conventional head-to-head military conflict, smaller and worse-armed forces have no chance, but they don't always agree to play by the rules the superpowers want.

So the argument seems to be: we should discount what the A-listers said about Trump because they didn't say it about Weinstein?

While we might question their consistency, it doesn't mean they were wrong about Trump

Theresa May's "extraordinary" conference speech

Comment: 12 days ago

"A cold" certainly seems to be the spin being put on things. But listen to the whole speech - the first 50 minutes doesn't sound like someone with any kind of cold, let alone a heavy one.

Theresa May's "extraordinary" conference speech

Comment: 16 days ago

She didn't start with a cough, she started with a strong voice but there was something she said that literally stuck in her throat.

If you watch the whole speech, there's a clear point where it all changes and she has trouble sounding convincing. I'd suggest this was the physical manifestation of an internal conflict - something she didn't believe in that she had to say nevertheless.

What was she talking about? Brexit.

What was the phrase that stuck in her throat? "I believe it's profoundly in all our interests for the negotiations to succeed."

She campaigned to remain and now has to try and sell Brexit and it was literally hard for her to get the words out.

I was initially unsure if she was telling the truth or not - but was finally convinced by her hat.

Pastor Jim Bakker helps you stay alive during the apocalypse

Comment: 20 days ago

I get increasingly worried by these shysters normalising the apocalypse and making stupid people think it's survivable as long as they have one of Jim's floatable buckets.

Combined with the tweeted "rhetoric" of Trump threatening "Little Rocket Man" they're making the world a much less safe place.

An alternative to her being bonkers is that maybe she's being totally cynical and a hypocrite.

This is a business, they're looking for donations and to shift merchandise (including an "extreme survival" water bottle for $25 + shipping) In order to shift more "extreme survival" products, you need to talk up the apocalypse and that's what they're doing.

Jim Bakker did time in prison for stealing from the "Praise the Lord" club and now he's in the survivalist business.

Televangelist, my arse.

Dunkirk statistics

"I would be much more humble towards hurt feelings in France" Hmm - I'd actually try and establish a more objective reality check. Hurt feelings I think are more likely to give rise to myths and obfuscation.

"criticism from in the US" Yes, right - take criticism on the depiction of WW2 in films from the country that brought us "The Great Escape", "U 571" and "Inglourious basterds" (sic) amongst others?.

"But then, the filmmaker never intended to tell a realistic story about Dunkirk." Where did you get that from? OK, you can't have an exact duplication of the event (which would last days and people would really be killed or injured), but Nolan wanted to recreate what it like on the ground and I think he did a great job.
