Topic: Zimbabwe Agrees to Compensate White Farmers
Replies: 140
Views: 1998

Zimbabwe is doing this as they want investors to have confidence that if they invest in Zimbabwe's agriculture sector the state won't just nationalize it. That said, the regime is returning to its bad behavior towards political opposition, with arbitrary arrests and detention, after they were expose...

It is untrue that the entire objection to tear gas is that it violates the Geneva Conventions. Well? It does for war. Police using it is a different matter. I'd say the problem with the narratives flying around right now is that what is legally permissible is down to the laws in place. Legally, as ...

I don't think that perpetual NATO-Russia hostility is beneficial in the long-term. Neither side unfortunately wants to suggest disbanding NATO and CSTO, demilitarizing the borders, and establishing an alternative organization in Europe to maintain the peace, which would probably be the better way to...

As far as the US is concerned, you can't have socialism by believing in the Democratic Party, you need a third party system that splits the vote both for Republicans and Democrats. If the US had a more left party i.e. a green party or progressive party, and another right party i.e. a libertarian par...

Source for all this rebuilding? The safest way for everyone, if we're talking about safety and nothing else, would be to detach North Kosovo from Kosovo and give it to Serbia. As for KFOR being a force for good, that's highly debatable. Realistically, Kosovo was created to forestall a decision on w...

True, but we need to ensure it is a failure if they try invading Taiwan. It would be grounds for war, although perhaps this is best for the Taiwan thread, although if the PRC starts and loses a war, perhaps a successful uprising against the PRC in Hong Kong becomes more likely. As long as the US ne...

One can only imagine who’s next if Taiwan falls. If the PRC is able to gain control of Taiwan most of the eastern Pacific is within their grasp. Big thing is if, as it would require the US to let it be invaded unopposed, as even under the best case scenario for China, it would take months to develo...

China's aggression at mininum will lead to a major arms race in the region, and nuclear proliferation of China's neighbors.

I'm reading a book on how WWI started, and it's a comedy of errors. No country's blameless. It'd be interesting to do a thread on that.
