The Man with the Laughs





Gooooooooood-byyyyyyye Vietnaaaaam! That's right, I'm history... I'm outta here. I got the lucky ticket home, baby. Rollin, rollin, rollin'... keep them wagons rollin', rawhide! Yeah, that's right... the final Adrian Cronauer broadcast... and this one is brought to you by our friends at the Pentagon. Remember the people who brought you Korea? That's right, the U.S. Army. If it's being done correctly, here or abroad, it's probably not being done by the Army.







In honor of Robin Williams, I've decided to forsake the rules and simple post a lot of what made him special to us: his humor and ability to make us laugh!!


Genie: [turns into a cheerleader] Rick 'em, rack 'em, rock 'em, rake! Stick that sword into that snake!
Jafar: You stay out of this!
Genie: [Weakly] Jafar, Jafar, he's our man; if he can't do it, great!

When Christopher Reeve was in the hospital after his accident, Robin came to visit him. Reeve said this about that surprise visit:
Then, at an especially bleak moment, the door flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. He announced that he was my proctologist, and that he had to examine me immediately...it was Robin Williams...for the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay.
When Stephan Spielberg was filming "Schindler's List", Robin would call him to cheer him up. I think I only called him once, maybe twice. I called him when I was representing People for the Valdheimers Association. A society devoted to helping raise money to help older Germans who had forgotten everything before 1945. I remember him laughing and going 'thank you.'"

So, Midland folk- who wants to go to Rezzed at the NEC in Brum on the 22nd/23rd (whichever day R2TW is showing off its new campaign map) for the pittance of 12 a day, or 20 for the weekend?

Wow, one full day without a post.

So, I was playing Euro truck Simulator (2) and I was playing in England. I instinctively drove on the right side of the road. there was no traffic until I hit around 80 km/h. Well, then I hit a car, and then another, and then another, thinking that they were drunk drivers or something, how realistic. Then I saw that all the signs were backwards. Finally, I got onto the right side of the rode, leaving behind a few broking bodies.

Tl;dr In England the right side of the rode != the right side of the rode.

That gave me quite a laugh. I like how it only came to you after you hit several cars, not just one.

I'd be slightly tempted to go, I'll have to see. Depends on what I'm doing at the time and stuff.

I don't think any side should intervene in Syria. It's not as clear-cut as government bad/rebels good. It's now believed it was the Free Syrian Army who used poison gas, not the government. Both sides have committed atrocities and I can't see how we should have to choose

Arms embargoes seem to extend the fighting, which extends the dying. Whenever these things are in place, someone always finds a way to get around them and keep the fighitng going. Look at Serbia feeding the Bosnian serbs weapons, while the embargo kept the Bosnians from getting heavy weapons. The fighting dragged on for like ten years before the Bosnians got the embargo lifted. Then, within the course of one year, they fought the Serbs to the peace table.

No side is ever going to quit as long as they have the means and will to fight, and think there is a chance of victory. Arms embargoes might limit the former, but only if both sides have access to proper weaponry can the issue be brought to diplomacy: the winning side will want to keep their gains, the losing side will want to hold what they have.

Warring sides might be brought to the peace table without force of arms, but it is highly unlikely. Once blood begins to flow, the chance of a voluntary compromise goes out the window. Syria is long past that point. The only thing that will end that conflict is when one side is wiped out, or both get tired of the destruction. And that point has yet to be reached, no matter how many are dead.

Because the weapons Russia will deliver are part of contracts signed before the uprising began. Everything Russia has given Syria has been part of arms deals signed in 2010 I believe, thus allowing them to bypass the embargo.

I was not surprised the Russians sent vehicular anti aircraft missiles to the Syrians in revenge for the EU embargo being partially lifted. In my mind it will help the rebels but in turn increase the suffering while the Russians will balance the "playing field" by sending in more weapons to Assad's regime.

The ironic thing here is the British and French seem to display a narrative that if they were to send weapons then it will be carefully done and those receiving the weapons will be vetted. Moreover, they seem to to be at pains to say that only moderate rebels, whom are friendly to the West and do not hold extreme views will be armed.

Just one problem with that: out of the Syrian rebel units its the jihadi units such as the Nusra Front and several other Islamic formations who are the best fighters, best equipped, best disciplined and have the larger numbers within the rebel movement. Even the Syrian National Council has much more "Islamists" (don't like using that term) than liberals which does not please the West. So even if British/French arms do go to the "moderate" rebels some will end up to extreme elements mainly because the extreme elements are their best fighters.

But it isn't the first time Western governments have severely underestimated an Arab country, isn't it?

Interestingly, many European, American and Arab opinion polls are AGAINST foreign intervention in Syria, yet again a sad aftermath of the Iraq/Afghanistan wars. In my view, the reason why the British and French were so eager to have the EU arms embargo lifted was because in recent weeks the Assad regime have been on the front foot; seizing towns along with cutting into rebel held territory.

General Rawlinson- This is most unsatisfactory. Where are the Sherwood Foresters? Where are the East Lancashires on the right?

Brigadier-General Oxley- They are lying out in No Man's Land, sir. And most of them will never stand again.
