Are... you for Gaddafi's plan here?
😂

The mere notion that Gaddafi was going to get anywhere setting up a United States of Africa is genuinely hilarious. The claim that the Americans would kill him over it is therefore correspondingly risible.

Look, I know this is a sensitive topic, but if Ireland reunites, you gotta somehow keep the Stormont name for you parliament. It's always been a cool name
I mean there's no reason to change the name, it's function would be what's in question but it would probably just become a Belfast City Council headquarters or something.

But yeah, it's better than Leinster House. Which I always hated because Ireland is more than just the south east as much as our politicians like to pretend otherwise.

There were plenty of other more 'legitimate' reasons to kill Gaddafi

Indeed.

I can also only assume dumb Americocentrism being behind people apparently forgetting that it was mostly France and the UK that pushed for the Libyan military intervention, including the fact that if I remember rightly, combined, they contributed more military assets to the operation than the USA.

Oopsiewhoopsie, saying the quiet parts out loud again.

Not the first time either. David Frum comes to mind.

@BrawlMan , you're from Michigan, right? Got a feel for how good this doofus' odds of winning are?
Not new. After 2016 the right were already trotting out "tyranny of the majority" in lockstep when people were arguing that maybe 1 person 1 vote (that is weighted the same as any other person's) might be a good idea.

I think that might be a scam account dude. Followed the thread a few more posts 'cos I was interested, and it just ends up trying to flog you NFTs and crypto.

That's not really the point, though; it would indicate NATO got involved for a really flimsy reason.

Granted, the evidence presented actually only implicates Sarkozy, not the rest of NATO. And it's not as if Sarkozy ordered the intervention unilaterally.

Considering all the high support Governor Whitmore still gets, not likely. Although, I am not surprised this idiot has supporters in Michigan.

Republicans want to move us to "one dollar, one vote", just as "the Founding Fathers intended". Because it's pretty easy to get a bunch of dead guys to agree with you on just about anything.

Because US foreign policy is just so measured and benign...

We kill people for all sorts of reasons. Including no particular reason at all!

It was funny because at the same time that demo was also arguing that not just powering through with Brexit was wrong because it was anti-democratic. Which, like I actually agree with, I just would have liked to see more democracy around what Brexit would look like.

Long in tooth and soul
Longing for another win
Lurch into the fray
Weapon out and belly in

Warrior struggling to remain consequential



Bellow aloud
Bold and proud
Of where I've been
But here I am


Beating chest and drums
Beating tired bones again
Age-old battle, mine
Weapon out and belly in



Tales told of battles won
Of things we've done
Caligula would grin


Beating tired bones
Tripping through remember when
Once invincible
Now the armor's wearing thin
Heavy shield down



Warrior struggling to remain relevant
Warrior struggling to remain consequential

Cry aloud
Bold and proud
Of where I've been
But here I am
Where I end



Warrior struggling to remain relevant
Warrior struggling to remain consequential




Tears in my eyes
Chasing Ponce de Leon's phantoms
So filled with hope
I can taste mythical fountains
False hope, perhaps
But the truth never got in my way
Before now, feel the sting
Feeling time bearing down

The scumbags are up to something, and are just trying to spread more of their conspiracy bull crap.

People like them aren't true Catholics or Christians, just fools being mindless slaves to their "ultimate truths" and ideology. Forcing it on others, because they can't get laid, or insecure that different people have it better than them.
