I don't get the point.

The point is this:

Name one soldier, sailor or airman that started a war.

"War is the final political act of failed diplomacy"

What is that quote from the past?

"They gave their todays for our tomorrows"

Yep, unfortunately the one thing technology has never been able to do & never will, is improve the Mk1 GPS or Mk 1 Computer systems.

For years improving technology has assisted in transport safety. However, in doing so...

Ah, been waiting for the crap to hit the fan over this for the past several years :-)

DUE to the EU carbon emission regulations, the pen pushers here in the UK thought they were smart when they came up with the current excise duty for vehicles.

Well, they were wrong

It was ultra smart, so smart in fact that the treasury ended up losing "loadsa money"

...so to rectify their error, guess who has to fill the treasury coffers?

Just in...

Germany got "Tangoed"

...that's gonna hurt :-)

Hmm, I recall Part 4 of the Europe series getting sent into cyberspace all because of "perceived attacks" on Germany...

...Will those that took that action send Trump into cyberspace?

Hmmm, better hurry up then as you only have 72 hours to do so!

Hmm, those Monday Morning blues...

...not this morning :-)

◾Brexit: It was a "smart" decision by the UK
◾UK-US trade deals: "We're gonna get something done very quickly"
◾Angela Merkel: She made a "catastrophic mistake" by letting in a million migrants
◾The EU: "It's basically a vehicle for Germany" and other countries will also leave because of anger over immigration
◾Nato: It's "obsolete" but "very important to me" and other members should pay "their fair share"
◾Iran nuclear deal: It's "one of the dumbest deals I have ever seen"
◾Iraq war: It was "like throwing rocks into a beehive"

Looks like Europe had better start stocking up on incontinence pants :-)

The thing is that the US has been 1 of those bullies and thugs stirring up unrest around the world for decades now and it's about time it was stopped by all sides.

No cheers for stupidity.

I didn't read much about the US bullying and being thugs coming from Australia during WWII. Perhaps when China comes to call on Sydney the US will 'refrain' from 'bullying' them.........no, we don't abandon friends.

Now let's see, WWII, oh yes you Yanks sat on your arses while we were evacuating British colonials out of SE Asia and holding the Japs back until the Japs did Pearl Harbour, then your generals wanted to use us as cannon fodder to protect your troops (yeah nice allies)..

Don't forget the worst American military sycophant who ran & left his command behind. Where did he run to - Australia leaving behind General Wainwright in overall command.

Wainwright had no choice but to surrender his forces to avoid senseless bloodshed. On his release from captivity, Wainwright still agonised over his decision asked a question: What did they think of him back home. He was stunned to be told he was a hero & awarded the Medal of Honour.

Here's the kicker:

The proposal for Wainwright's CMH was made in 1942. However it was rejected due to the vehement opposition of General MacArthur, who felt that Corregidor should not have been surrendered. MacArthur did not oppose the renewed proposal in 1945.

Enjoy your vacation but on your return, before you post, strip down your computer, clean out the dust bunnies then run a scan as it's pretty certain that your computer is infected by an A.I bot that thinks it's human.

Oh & while you're down there, let the Argies known that it's the Falklands Islands not Las Malwinos :-)

So far, all you've done is post B/S & rallied against practically all groups - YET when questioned has not answered with either a possible solution or even your own opinion.

Unless you're prepared to do so, go populate your bathroom as everyone knows, that's the best place for B/S.
