Not exactly good news.
The more royally fucked Russia is, the easier they could fuck us over.
The most dangerous animal in the forest is not the strogest but the wounded one.
They will be fucked if they were to fight a conventional war against NATO, that's for sure, but all they need is a finger to press a button.

So NATO actually IS a threat to Russia after all, huh
Russia is a threat to itself.
Their modus operendi was to threaten the end the world; but they fucked up this time, their bluff has been called.

Shutting down the gas supply will only ferment EU support, in addition to the US's unwavering fire power.
Game over Bitch?

EU should just reopen nuclear power plants
They should.

Never was a fan of nuclear, but hearing Germany talking about going back to massive charcoal use during the most hellish summer in West Europe's history blows my mind.

It was 44° celsius ( over 111° F) at my hometown last week.. At this point, nuclear means danger but fossil means death to me.

Yeah, everyone should, nuclear power is by far our best option at the moment. We never should have closed them or moved away from it. Except the ones in tsunami or heavy seismic zones.
Well my whole thing is that spent radioactive fuel has to go somewhere…yucca mountain in Nevada was suppose to be a nuclear waste sight which is currently a nuclear waste site, in another 10-23-30 years are these large deposits of waste gonna be an issue ? I guess there is no free lunch and you gotta pick your poison

It's seems it is possible to dump it effectively. Finland seems to have found a way, at least:



FINAL RESTING PLACE​


Finland is set to open the world’s first permanent repository for high-level nuclear waste. How did it succeed when other countries stumbled?​

This is true, any valid path for energy right now has downsides. But a (relatively) small amount of radioactive waste that, if properly contained in lead, wouldn't have much impact and would dissipate in 100 years or so, sure seems, to me, to beat pumping out millions of tons of dirty smog and CO2 every year. Even ignoring the CO2, for those who think it isn't having any impact on global temperatures, just the pollution alone is horrible. We have areas in India and China where people are dying from living in smog covered cities. In America we used to have that too, but we cleaned up our act enough that we don't really have to think about it, though it still affects us. The impact of pumping so much dirty pollution into the air constantly is huge, and to me, utterly eclipses the issue of radioactive waste, which, even if it leaks, is a local problem. But using proper protocols, and placing nuclear power plants where they won't risk meltdowns and damage from tsunamis and earthquakes, the impact is very minimal in comparison to coal.

Solar energy should be the eventual goal, but the technology is not there yet. The way we harvest it (solar panels) produces its own problems, too, which are not minor. But if we keep studying, I feel confident we can come up eventually with a way to harness all the energy we need. After all, every minute enough energy hits the planet to power every single thing we do for a year. But, in the meantime, we need energy now. And I think nuclear is the most sensible way forward.

Idk how this war will play out now that ukraine has american rockets, but it looks like within 1-2 weeks it has already buttfucked russia massively. Poland wants 500 of these launchers.

We should be mass producing them all through the west. America should of given ukraine at least 40 launchers. They need about 100 to defeat russia.

North korea and china pose a bigger threat right now. North korea should of been dealt with a long time ago. Now they have ICBM nuclear warheads that can reach america.

North Korea couldn't have been dealt with practically or realistically - at least, not without seeing much of South Korea obliterated, particularly Seoul. It's been one of the most fortified and militarized countries in the world since the 1960s, and China wouldn't have just sat back either.

Perhaps this is not very interesting for you, some people will find it silly, but I thought I would share it because I find it interesting and it would be something very important in case it happens.

According to several people the Third Secret of Fatima (the part not revealed by the Vatican) would be revealed during the worst moment of the war with Russia, this has been said a long time ago, long before the war started.
It is supposed that the Vatican would have hidden part of the Fatima message as it would be very negative against the Vatican itself and would reveal essential information about the development of an internal conflict in the Church and the corruption of the Church.

Besides this, other revelations, these not even accepted by the Vatican, from a Spanish village called Garabandal, tell that there would be a supernatural warning coinciding with a Schism in the Church that would be the product of a failed and conflictive Synod. There is also talk of communism (but not of Russia). I associate it with the techno-communism of the technocrats of the WEF.
In a short time there will be an important synod, the synod of synodality, which has all the appearance of presenting a schism....

My bet is that a big economic collapse will happen after summer, between september and december and it will coincide with a new escalation of the war, new covid waves and the monkeypox scaremongering. Blackouts could happen too, but obviously I cannot guarantee any of this.

“Dealing with North Korea “ is a little easier said than done, I think their military has 1.3 million active personnel and a good amount on stand by, they also has pretty decent technology and training

Another good point, NK would essentially blow South Korea off the map

I honestly don’t think their will be another world war, the big dog governments are to reliant on each other, either for goods or for the sale of goods or any other of the many reasons, I think the future will see more civil wars
