The entire thing dates back to Europeans deciding to steal some of the best land in the area and make a new country due to feeling bad for something other Europeans did in WW2. Bonus points for it doubling as holy land of significant importance. Super bonus points for since getting Israel to pick a side in the Sunni vs Shia religious conflict in the region. Ultra bonus points for repeatedly invading the region to the point where they hate us.


It dates back to the Byzantine Empire. To try and make this about the end of WWII is ignoring the fact that Jewish people lived in Jerusalem for millennia.

Israel didn't really pick Hamas (Sunni) to be it's enemy either. Hamas at one time worked with Israel as it's originally stated mission was to push the PLO out. Once that was successful Hamas changed it's tune and said that it's original intention all along was to liberate all of Palestine for the Sunni Muslims and it then turned on Israel and the USA. This was probably when Irans Quds got involved and thus began the Israeli/Hamas proxy war of the US v Iran and why certain politicians need to learn some history about the USAs political allies before they open their stupid mouths.


Good post, Sixty.

Most newspapers are reporting on the death toll in Gaza, and those children and stuff. I don’t think it’s propaganda even tho we’ve seen that before in Lebanon.

There’s no “good guys” in this fight, that’s for sure. Israel is your ally for political reasons only

Anyway violence begets violence. Israel won’t solve this by killing people and it looks like that’s their future strategy. Not sure how things cool down over there.



Just for clarification; I don't think the civilian deaths are inflated or being used as propaganda. And, Both sides have committed war crimes. But we have allies and there are proxy wars being waged.

1. I have an Xbox Series S.

2. I don’t care about Bethesda rpgs anymore unless they get stellar reviews declaring them mostly bug free. The only good things to come out of them since Skyrim are things they weren’t directly developing (Ie Doom from ID)

——————————-

Prior to the creation of modern Israel; Jews were treated better in the Middle East on average than in Europe. I care mostly about the event that pissed everyone off; not the reasons those things happened.

That being said, all this **** was more than 70 years ago. The modern problem is Israel and Iran; neither one of which currently plans to be reasonable.

Imo the US needs to stop shielding Israel completely from any consequences. They are going to turn into our North Korea at this rate; except we aren’t geographically close.

No, I've never been out of the country except Canadialand and Tijuana. Never really had the means to until the last few years. We were gonna go to Turks and Caicos and then the Pandemic hit.

I used to think my life was a tragedy; but now I see that it’s a comedy.

o, I used a program called ePIC charcter generator to make a rendering of one of the characters in the book i'm working on ,here's what she looks or as close i could get with the program. The issue is that it's not really meant for non-rpg use i'm finding or at least without spending a chunk of money. The setting for my book is 2004 high school lol

It looks like someone from the first 30 minutes of Village; from before you realize the game has an inventory.

———————

Village speedrunning is trying to decide whether its better to do the entire run in 30 fps on pc or switch back and forth between 30 and 60.

———————

I dislike the later land sections of Below Zero. The entire thing is such a pita you can’t enjoy exploration. The game didn’t include enough ways to juggle heat the way you can deal with oxygen; and the wurms cover too damn much of the map for how oppressive they are.

So about the latest elections in Chile I would like to share just one little piece of info:

-We elected 155 'Constituyentes' (people that will write and vote the new constitution).

-'Constituyentes' were elected with the same mechanism and the same geographic/population representation that we use to elect Congressman/Congresswoman. With the D'Hond system.

-Gender parity among elected 'constituyentes' was the one thing that changed, this forced political parties to push competitive women into the elections, at least 45% of their lists needed to be of the less represented gender.

Results: The parity mechanism ended up forcing men into the new elected 'Constitutional congress'.

Loved how that turned up.
