I think he thought was going to get support from Russia's military and he didn't, so this is the best he can get without getting him getting MIA'ed.

The main purpose of nuclear weapons is nuclear deterrence, not launching them. Belarus being next to NATO's occupying forces makes it a highly likely target for a NATO invasion, this secures some stability in the region from Russia's perspective.

Is anyone for real going to federate with them? This is such a dumb move, who would think they care about this? It is a fucking oxymoron, how do they think they are going to make money with this? Jesus, capitalism is truly in autopilot mode at this stage.

Edit:

Meta is talking to celebrities like Oprah and the Dalai Lama about being early users.

WTF, how do they think it's a good idea to ask the fucking monarchist paedophile who just recently was discovered licking a fucking child a good idea? Facebook can't die fast enough.

It's something the US has basically enforced, it's their excuse to things like military bases in Okinawa, which goes against Japan's ideas of not having an army (even though the JSDF has broken this promise of sorts). More military spending it's not going to bring any good to anyone, specially coming from Europe and its record, specially the Brits.

You must have experience with that, it's what you've been doing for the last 200 years.

Saying "decent countries" clearly has a perverse slip within the thought, the idea of a collective I in the our countries and an objectifying negation of the I in the other group. Basically good ol' civilisation and barbarians. The same rhetoric you and your people have been using to oppress me and my third world brothers and sisters all around the world. You really think you need to do the missionary work of educating the beasts, don't you?

Hey, that's not possible because MY dad was in front of those tanks!

Decent countries. What a slippery slope for supremacist thoughts.

China doesn't say nothing happened, what they say is that counter revolution happened, and it was effectively suppressed. Why would you let someone celebrate the equivalent of an extremist movement?

Yeah, like Julian Assange? Who's that guy? No idea. Oh, maybe you meant Chelsea Manning, ah, no, also don't know who's that one.

I’m not saying there can’t be news about China, what I’m saying, and I’ve seen this a multitude of times, is that there is something that Usonians and Europeans do a lot, is that they post news about their countries as if they would be the world. In my book “World News” means something the entire world should care about, not just the Anglosphere and Europe, the description seems just a silly thing to put as a placeholder, at least that’s how it has always worked in this community, news that the entire world cares about. It is a good rule that something global would involve at least 2 countries, or some event that it is really worth mentioning, like a natural disaster in some country, etc.
