Russia ‘no threat,’ NATO expansion ‘dilutes effectiveness’ of bloc – ex-US defense secretary to RT
17 Feb, 2018

NATO’s rapid expansion has not necessarily strengthened the alliance and the US should rethink its hostility towards Russia, former US Secretary of Defense William Perry said on RT’s SophieCo program.

Perry, who has previously stated that NATO’s eastward expansion during his tenure as defense secretary was a mistake and largely responsible for the current confrontation between Moscow and Washington, told RT’s Sophie Shevardnadze that he was sceptical that incorporating Macedonia or Montenegro into NATO would benefit the “defensive” alliance.

The Diner Pantry / 🐰 Doomstead Diner Dinner Special: 2/17/2018

Here in the FSoA, having the Easter Bunny for your Doomer Dinner is not all that common, but it is elsewhere in the world.  Like Chickens, Rabbits were domesticated as a source of food, unlike Dogs & Cats which were domesticated to be helpers for Homo Sap.  I have cooked Bugs Bunny (or hare) a few times when I nailed one with my slingshot.  Best slow cooked in a stew as the meat is somewhat tough.

RE definitely knows all this (if he has read any of my stuff before), but hates Trump so is willing to overlook the "slightly unbalanced reporting" and EXECUTE Trump based on it. I would not sail on his ship, or eat his Breakfasts, Lunches and Dinners, or sing along with Tony Bennett FCS.

But you'll eat canned tuna from Thailand!  ::)  Your loss, I make a mean Python Stew. :P  Oh, and GO put up the Tony Bennet post.

... the CIA issued a statement that “[t]he Director stands by and has always stood by the January 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment.”

An intelligence assessment is some one's opinion - not proof. In fact it was the opinions of 3 people selected by CIA/FBI/NSA of CIA/FBI/NSA staff, and as such is just CIA/FBI/NSA saying it is so.

So is Donald Trump a traitor?

No.

The whole thing is a Russophobic set-up, typical of the whole Cold War 2.0.  The author, James Risen, was a NYT reporter,  and now works for the Intercept (owned by billionaire eBay founder Pierre Omidyar).  Like all these things, there are some good journalists at Intercept and NYT and some bad ones.  This article puts all the claimed pro-Hilary things together without giving any of the pro-Trump things, to make its case and appear balanced. The "evidence" all boils down to "who is hacking team APT28/29 ?" for which there can be no firm answer.

No. Wrong.

And I posted it, not RE. Just keep counting the indictments, Putinbot. You have to be in full-bore denial to call indictments unbalanced reporting. And they are just beginning to roll out. More changes for Manafort, and next to come American counterparts to the Russians.

Allow me to offer your your choice from a bag of dicks from which to suck.

Environment / Re: Official Ocean Death Watch Thread
« Last post by Palloy2 on Today at 02:24:48 PM »
WWN-style reporting.  What percentage of the oceans are dead?  The Gulf dead-zone isn't due to global warming so much as agricultural pesticides and other poisons being dumped in the Mississippi - it's outrageous, but nobody cares.  And nobody will care when polar bears go extinct, so long as the Alaskan oil dividend is still being paid to keep everyone quiet, and you can always watch Attenborough videos of them if you like bears that much - bloody nuisance around town.

Forgot about the Microwave.

Use it so much, especially to heat up my coffee that I don' even think about it.

The other items are of no use to me, but my old lady likes to play around with that stuff.

Here's another truly fabulous one, the Electric Smoker!  :icon_sunny:


You REALLY keep your costs down if you like stuff like Pastrami, Smoked Turkey, Nova & Lox Salmon etc.   Drop it on the porch, smoke for a few hours and POOF! fabulous dinner!  Also Lunch and Breakfast meals too.  I smoked some Baby Back Ribs for the 2nd Diner Convocation in Saluda, NC.  Big Hit!  :icon_sunny:

I cook on the Foreman, she cleans it when I'm done, you could say we share it.  :laugh: :laugh: ;D

Matrimony is all about sharing.    :icon_sunny: :LolLolLolLol:

Best two items I ever bought for the kitchen.

It's a great industrially produced electricity dependent cooking tool, but I am not sure it's the best.

Also high on the list of these things are a Food Processor


Slow Cooker


Waffle Iron


and of course, the Microwave Oven!


How did we ever survive without microwaves?  ???   :icon_scratch:
