Intervention: A Success Story!

0 comments

In light of President Trump's missile strike on Syria, Reason has put together a quick refresher on a few of our many questionable interventions in the Middle East.

In 1953 the CIA lead a coup against Iran's democratically-elected prime minister, Mohammad Mosaddeq. In his place America and Britain helped install a king. That regime came crashing down in 1979, and Iran has been suspicious of America ever since. The United States subsequently supported Iraq during the Iran-Iraq War, providing both intelligence and arms to Saddam Hussein. Interestingly, Iraq's brutal dictator turned out to be a brutal dictator. We went to war with him during the early 90s and again in 2003. To the great surprise of the Bush administration, ousting the strongman has not transformed Iraq into a liberal democracy.

Similarly, when Nobel Peace Prize recipient Barack Obama bombed Libya to oust Muammar Gaddafi, the vacuum of power invited more strife and violence.

During the Cold War the United States provided support to a group of anti-Soviet Islamist fighters in Afghanistan called the Mujaheddin. Their ranks included Osama bin Laden and they would eventually spawn the Taliban the United States would fight in 2001.

Our attack on Syria is just the latest development in a long series of American interventions in the Middle East and it's worth considering the rubble, chaos, and ally-cum-enemies that often accompany our adventures in the region.

    Hello, I've started using a technique for long operations in python and I'd like to know if it seems reasonable in a TD context, or if there are better or more standard ways of doing things.For this application, I have to communicate with three HTTP APIs (including sending files) and use a number of command line programs (a slew of small utilities to control a Fastec camera, and ffmpeg to assemble the camera's output frames into an h264 video file). My general approach so far has been to kick off work in a threading.Thread, then use a Timer CHOP to poll for a result. I use a threading.Lock for memory safety.For the HTTP stuff, this seems to work fine. The use case is pretty simple -- make a sequence of requests in python, and at the end, make sure things turn out OK. I'm using the requests module and write "synchronous" code that then wrapped in a thread.I'm doing something similar with the command-line tools, but I use the subprocess module. The ffmpeg code should be very similar to the http/requests code. The camera controls are a bit more complex, so I'm using a queue.Queue (which is conveniently synchronized) to pass command and response objects. A Timer CHOP calls a poll method that pops things off the queue and reacts accordingly. Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

    Hello, The longer I play this game the more I feel like Wisdom is just a supporting colour, it has ramp (new horizons),card draw (LG etc).Dominion Control likes this. Other colours too (mid-lategame decks). Another reason is there aren't enough of cards designed for mono wisdom. Even the expansion makes me feel like this. New Aurites, Peacocks clearly are not created for mono wisdom. They actually need other colour to be viable.There aren't cards that would benefit from Wisdom levels.For example Corruption has Word of Pain and Consume Spirit. Rage has Word of Fire, Burning rage etc.I might be wrong but I find some of the Wisdom cards kinda lame too, like the Ice or Lightning Elemental.I'd be happy if Spellweaver had a scaling wisdom card (we got Word of Knowledge but it's not the level/affinity of other Words spells. It's a support action for other colours just like Wisdom is - I feel. How about a card that would help Wisdom with the creature department like Word of Construction - construct/upgrade artifact(s)) For More Details:- Real Estate Video marketing Thanks

    Hello Everyone, I had a response from my SS regarding the issue of exposed plumbing under floating vanities.“When the wastes are connected, a small false frame will be installed and then tiled”I will be meeting my SS next week to understand what he means by that. 2 out of 4 vanities have plumbing that’s visible underneath and it is going through the floor while the other 2 have plumbing through the wall and nothing is visible underneath. Not sure why they have done it differently. Has anyone else had this issue? Not sure if I am worrying for nothing Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
