Correct. Senate report here, start around page 6: https://www.intelligence.senate.gov/sites/default/files/documents/Report_Volume2.pdf

Analysis of the behavior of the IRA-associated social media accounts makes dear that while the Russian information warfare campaign exploited the context of the election and election-related issues in 2016, the preponderance of the operational focus, as reflected repeatedly in content, account names, and audiences targeted, was on socially divisive issues-such as race, immigration, and Second Amendment rights-in an attempt to pit Americans against one another and against their government.

Once again flawed from the start.

Unlike many legacy planes, the F-35 is built with access panels to allow technicians to more easily make adjustments. This makes changing out parts “a whole lot faster,” said Tech. Sgt. Chard Wooldridge, an avionics technician.

“For example, instead of taking off the entire nose assembly, it’s just a compartment,” Wooldridge said.

Plus, the computer catches problems the human eye might miss, Wooldridge said.

The jet’s weapons are also easier to maintain than those on legacy platforms, said Master Sgt. Jason Buffell, the weapons section lead. The F-35’s weapons delivery is “pneumatic,” which means it fires projectiles by means of air pressure, instead of explosive. This saves man hours because the team doesn’t have to spend time cleaning the weapons banks every day, Buffell said.

That’s the first rule of being a sociopathic human, it’s not bounded to a specific economic system.

Ok except the U.S. military industrial complex is the largest of all of human existence. Furthermore that entire article is based off of “who can shoot the most artillery” which is fundamentally flawed from the start.

The views expressed in this Commentary are the author’s, and do not represent those of RUSI or any other institution.

Same. In the past I tried doing the whole wallpaper thing but it always became a distraction.

The disinformation tactic he’s using against you is called “gish gallop”, just FYI.

“Go back to Reddit”, “I bet you’re a librul”, “stop watching so much CNN!” are all common copouts used when they have no legitimate rebuttal.

Except you didn’t explain how it was false, you wrote a bullshit novel that boils down to “just because”.

Your cope novel doesn’t detract my statement. If Russia leaves Russians will stop dying in Ukraine, end of story.

Nothing is stopping the Russians from going back to Russia.

17. Change the Subject ~ Usually in connection with one of the other ploys listed here, find a way to side-track the discussion with abrasive or controversial comments in hopes of turning attention to a new, more manageable topic. This works especially well with companions who can ‘argue’ with you over the new topic and polarize the discussion arena in order to avoid discussing more key issues.

Also, imagine thinking that Russian military uses unencrypted phone calls to communicate.

Like this?

“But that’s not proof!”

“Well that’s just Ukrainians disgused as Russians”

“Those Russians are a rogue group, not the real Russian Army!”

25 Rules of Disinformation

Sidetrack Opponents with Name-Calling and Ridicule ~ This is also known as the primary ‘attack the messenger’ ploy, though other methods qualify as variants of that approach. Associate opponents with unpopular titles such as ‘kooks’, ‘right-wing’, ‘liberal’, ‘left-wing’, ‘terrorists’, ‘conspiracy buffs’, ‘radicals’, ‘militia’, ‘racists’, ‘religious fanatics’, ‘sexual deviates’, and so forth. This makes others shrink from support out of fear of gaining the same label, and you avoid dealing with issues.

This is from 2017, it’s not news. “Ask the audience” isn’t news either.

Russia also claimed that Ukraine didn’t sink the Moskva, yet they still pulled their ships away from the coastline.

At the beginning Russia claimed they were just holding exercises, now it’s a “special military operation”.

Russia claims it wasn’t targeting civilians, but we have thousands of pictures and a couple intercepted phone calls that say otherwise.

They posted a false assertion that was never said then argued against it. My response was appropriate for someone trying to seed disinformation

“according to one commentator”

Read the article again Igor.

“It’s just an exercise”

“It’s just a special military operation”

Fuck Google

I agree, but I thought regular Firefox was privacy orientated.

And AFAIK using ion-trusters for travel to Mars would require using a massive nuclear reactor, thus pretty unrealistic in the short run.

I think it just takes forever, nuclear isn’t required. Recently I looked up the “warp drive” because supposedly these UFO’s use warp drives (hence why they don’t liquefy when pulling 600g’s). Anyways that resulted in me coming across this really good video which happened to mention Ion drives. That should start at 25:53 which is the relevant section.

"At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Fauci originally discouraged mask-wearing by the public because he was concerned about PPE availability for health-care workers. “We didn’t realize the extent of asymptotic spread…what happened as the weeks and months came by, two things became clear: one, that there wasn’t a shortage of masks, we had plenty of masks and coverings that you could put on that’s plain cloth…so that took care of that problem. Secondly, we fully realized that there are a lot of people who are asymptomatic who are spreading infection. So it became clear that we absolutely should be wearing masks consistently.” Source

That’s a quick way to destroy this instance.

Why would it matter if it’s fair or not.

Because it’s /c/worldnews, not /c/worldnewsbutonlywheniagree. If Lemmy could find an elegant way to block people from making “name brand” communities it’d solve a lot of problems.
