Biden vows G7 response, ‘ironclad’ US support for Israel after Iran attacks ( www.aljazeera.com )

US President Joe Biden has condemned Iranian attacks on military facilities in Israel, pledging a coordinated Group of Seven (G7) diplomatic response while highlighting the United States’s help in taking down “nearly all” of the attacking drones and missiles....

Israel is the US's unsinkable aircraft carrier in the Middle East. It's strategically priceless for US world domination.

Yeah I don't think it's going to work this time.

Will you vote for Biden if he gets us into WW3?

I'm going to write in Aaron Bushnell's name, who already cast the only vote that matters.

I'm trans in a red state. If Trump wins I might die.

I'm still not voting for Biden.

Not like it fucking matters, if my state passes a "kill all the trans people" law Biden wouldn't stop them.

They're very clearly pushing Democrats and especially Biden on this issue.

If it weren't for the uncommitted movement I have no doubt that the US would have responded to Iran striking back at Israel.

queermunist ,
@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

No. I'm arguing that both sides are bad in different ways.

I voted for Biden in 2020 and Democrats in 2022 because I believed they were the lesser of two evils.

Then the genocide in Gaza accelerated and I'm realizing there are no lesser evils in this country. Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good? My dude, America is the enemy of the good! And as those protesters in Michigan said, Death to America

Think about this: he never killed anyone else. You think a murderer would be able to just one-and-done like that after getting away with it?

Clearly he was innocent all along.

My logic is impeccable.

Yeah this is a one-time retaliation that Iran can do to hurt Israel. If Israel provoked them again they're probably going to be forced to do something more violent.

It's literally how communist states are organized, how is it not a political system?

queermunist ,
@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

It's not required for communism per se, but it's certainly a form of government organization. It's how the People's Congress works?

queermunist ,
@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

The more steps of complexity there are in the system the less efficient it is, this seems incredibly obvious to me? Turning plants into cow flesh is less efficient than just eating plants.

Also it's way thicker than oat and almond milk.

queermunist ,
@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

Soy milk has a more distinct flavor imo - not as sweet either

Also soy is spooooooky~

queermunist ,
@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

Oh yeah, I always get unflavored tho because I use it for making pea protein shakes for my Huge Factory Labor Muscles

@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

What funny soy milk are you drinking? It tastes distinct, for sure, rather than being sweetish like oat or almond milk. But in terms of viscosity soy milk has them beat.

queermunist ,
@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

Huh, yeah, it totally does taste like grass. Kinda.

I still drink it tho 💪

queermunist ,
@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

Imagine drinking milk from something that can't consent smdh 😞

queermunist ,
@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

It depends on how much sugar is in it. Shelf stable soy milk lasts a long time in my experience. 'Silk' goes off in a couple weeks tho

Why does Germany support America's unsinkable aircraft carrier? Hmm.

@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

Uh oh!

If only there was some obvious thing Biden could do that would bring back disaffected voters. 🤔

Trump is old, fat, and loves fast food. Neither he nor Biden will make it to 2028

And they'll fail again because their last attempt to overthrow the government was to smear shit on the wall of the Capital building.

“Well aren’t you a saint.”

Bourgeoisification is real. First world workers can have an elevated class status if they own property and investments, directly tying their own net worth to finance and markets, and so they stop seeing themselves as part of the same class as people on the lower rung of the class ladder. If you aren't going to buy low and sell high then that makes you a 🚨 🚨 🚨 class traitor 🚨 🚨 🚨

Saying what can't be said: Israel has been defeated – a total defeat ( www.haaretz.com )

We've lost. Truth must be told. The inability to admit it encapsulates everything you need to know about Israel's individual and mass psychology. There's a clear, sharp, predictable reality that we should begin to fathom, to process, to understand and to draw conclusions from for the future. It's no fun to admit that we've lost,...

On the heels of restricting exports to Israel, is Turkey making an alignment change?

Personally, I don't think she should ever be allowed to die until she pays back her debt to society. Death is too easy.

Rules HAVE to exist. Enforcers HAVE to exist.

Yes, that's the fundamental contradiction of anarchism. Rules need rulers.

To understand the risks posed by AI, follow the money ( theconversation.com )

There is one class of AI risk that is generally knowable in advance. These are risks stemming from misalignment between a company’s economic incentives to profit from its proprietary AI model in a particular way and society’s interests in how the AI model should be monetised and deployed. The surest way to ignore such...

How about the risk of dumbass managers overestimating AIs ability to save on labor costs and firing too many workers to function?

There won't be a prace deal without Israel agreeing to a captive exchange, so this is an unserious nonstarter.

I've seen some interesting ideas from Low Tech Magazine - one that I found particularly interesting was flywheel energy storage. Take a heavy disk or drum and spin it up with excess electricity, then discharge the spin from the battery when the Sun goes down.

Last year I began saving vinegar from pickled jalapenos to make into sauce, instead of buying a spicy sauce for my veggie wraps.

I'm probably going to need to start making my own tortillas too, shit's getting expensive.

Yeah but you didn't consider the fact that I'm incredibly lazy

This is why your prior should never be 0 or 1 for anything.

For anything? Are you sure about that?

Because I say there's 0 probability that six sided dice will ever produce a 7.

queermunist ,
@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

Okay, so by your logic the probability of literally everything is 1. That's absurd and that's not how Laplace’s law of succession is supposed to be applied. The point I'm trying to make is that some things are literally impossible, you can't just hand-wave that!

And I'm not saying that solving hallucinations is impossible! What I'm saying that it could be impossible and am criticizing your blind faith in progress because you just believe the probability is literally 1. I can't say, for sure, that it's impossible. At the same time you can't say, for sure, that it is possible. You can't just assume the problem will inevitably be fixed, otherwise you've talked yourself into a cult.

queermunist ,
@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

You do not know that it is nonzero, that's just an assumption you made up.

Also, Laplace's law of succession necessarily implies that, over an infinite number of attempts and as long as there is a possibility of success, the probability that the next attempt results in success approaches 1.
