Small correction. Apple does not have customers, they have "acolytes".

gary_7vn Re:Just askin... (221 comments)

Can MIT render you or kill you in a drone strike? And I guess you missed the "voluntary" part.

Electric Vehicles Might Not Benefit the Environment After All

gary_7vn fuck off (775 comments)

The idea that every single human on the planet can haul their ass around in about 1000 kilos of metal and plastic on road, literally, paved with oil, is about as stupid as a plan ever devised by us monkeys. Whether by oil or lithium, it's still a remarkably stupid idea.

Which is exactly why America has the Bill of Rights, 200 million misinformed or manipulated people cannot "vote" to take away ones human or civil rights.

USA Calling For the Extradition of Snowden

gary_7vn Re:Someone start a defense fund (955 comments)

The oath he swore was to protect the Constitution, he has NOT violated that oath, quite the opposite. What he did do was violate the terms of a non-disclosure agreement.

China Criticizes US For Making Weapon Plans Steal-able, Alleges Attacks From US

gary_7vn Is__el (209 comments)

Israel has been caught, many times, stealing and spying. Yet, I have never seen a US President complain about this. Why?

The next enemy for America is China. Right now the US is in cold war with them. But it's going to get hot soon. Much of what is happening in the Middle East is about controlling the oil and thus, China.

The next battlespace will be Africa.

America is sleep walking, as usual, into a war with China.

Working Handgun Printed On a Sub-$2,000 3D Printer

gary_7vn 3 d printing and a lathe (521 comments)

You don't have to be super skilled to use a lathe to make a steel barrel either, so between the few, and perhaps a few other easily or obtained metal parts, and you might have yourself a serviceable device.

Machine Gun Fire From Military Helicopters Flying Over Downtown Miami

gary_7vn Re:Provoking (1130 comments)

What was he supposed to do? Stop reading to the kids, stand up, and say "Children, I must save the United States! Begone!" - demon

Right, you get a call that your house on fire while you are at work, but you just sit there for 20 minutes to finish reading your email. Laughable. His location was also known, it was scheduled visit, public. Sitting there put himself and the kids at risk. OTOH Cheney was practically dragged out of office by SS men just as soon as they got the news. That's just SOP.

Machine Gun Fire From Military Helicopters Flying Over Downtown Miami

gary_7vn Re:Provoking (1130 comments)

In his book Jawbreaker (2005), Berntsen said that his team had pinpointed bin Laden's location.[page needed] He wrote that a number of al-Qaeda detainees later confirmed that bin Laden had escaped into Pakistan via an easterly route through snow-covered mountains to the area of Parachinar, Pakistan. He believed that bin Laden could have been captured at the time if the United States Central Command had committed the troops which Berntsen had requested.[4][page needed] In a 2005 interview, the former CIA officer Gary Schroen concurred with Berntsen's opinion.[5] Pentagon documents suggest bin Laden escaped at Tora Bora.

Unwilling to "scorch the earth"? How kind of you. 20,000+ people did get "scorched" so there is that. You are losing because no one likes invaders. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.
