Lets list in my opinion the worst decisions taken or nearly taken by largest navies around the world. #εpsilon Image
The #USNavy #Zumwaltclass destroyers were supposed to have #AGS capable of firing ultra long range 155mm shells, have no shells as they were canceled. Now, to re-add the X-factor the #USN is replacing AGS guns with VLS for upto 12 hypersonic missiles. Costing a lot of $$$$$$$$$s Image
Once the greatest #Navy on Earth, decided it was too great and powerful to have a ship mounted AShM. The #Brits decided #RoyalNavy could retire its #Harpoons without procuring a replacement anytime soon. Luckily , it didnt happen. This is why I feel #UK will cause #AUKUS to fail? Image

A year of the nine-year war (longread)

LONG-TIME APPEASEMENT (1991-2014). Due to the immense potential to destroy humanity, vast resources, and incurable optimism of the renaissance nations, 🇷🇺has been a prism through which the West has been looking at the nations in-between.
The brutal second #Chechen war, orchestrated by @putin to grip power, was hardly noticed. 🇷🇺was let in from the cold just a year after the invasion of #Georgia.
Contrary to common sense, the Kremlin was awarded more say in global affairs and even more role in #Europe, thanks to the Partnership for modernization Angela #Merkel had championed.

🧵A Thread On Who REALLY crashed #FTX and WHY
1) #SBF was owned and operated by Davos as a front for Offshore Dollar Market (ODM) money creation and laundering through Ukraine and beyond the jurisdiction of the Fed.
2) Davos used #SBF and #FTX as the tool for regulatory capture of the entire #crypto industry. They need to control the industry in order to control stable coins because stable coins are the replacement of the ODM/Eurodollar System.
3) The ODM is being destroyed as Powell raises rates and bankrupts Davos. Therefore Davos’s only hope was to capture the entire stable coin market so they can keep printing more money to fund wars and overthrow governments (and steal the midterm elections).

Ever heard the old adage? Money goes where it grows.
That is why global capital flows to China and SE+NE Asia have become gargantuan over the last 70 years or so, especially after Deng introduced the Open policy in China in 1979.
It worked for them for multiple reasons, but, the thing which differentiated the Asians from the Europeans was the progressive work ethic that promoted both smart and hard work together.
Smart work will give you more productivity but at the expense of higher wages, whereas, hard work will give you more output per head but at affordable rates.
All SE-Asian and even the Chinese Megalodon Economies have adopted the latter strategy to date.

I am not saying these are correlated.

I am saying this is interesting

It looks to me that china is selling the f out of brit bonds.

Ok, now thats even more interesting

#1 points to a swap with GBP - everyone freaking out about a crash - no - this is intentional.

Brit pound is nuclear bom in the formula - notice its a mirror image of what GBP does (blue vs purple)

GBP moves HEAVILY influence formula.
What this means is if you were holding oil contracts in Pounds, oil price CRASHED bigly.

You will liquidate your position (or buy cause its now cheap) - im betting the liquidate after looking at the oil price move.

There is no cure for stupidity & nonsense & @Expedia epitomizes it. The crap they have on their site on #BallyBridge connecting #DakshineshwarTemple & #Uttarpara. Again, I have to fix the false narrative. If you are interested read on. Anyone who has traveled to #Kolkata (1/n)
(2/n) and been to Dakshineshwar Temple must've stumbled upon the famous Bally Bridge. Here is a history of the engineering marvel that you may not have known. Believe it or not, #Crowdfunding was not invented at #PaloAlto. Kolkata was separated from Hoogly District by.....

🎶 Why are hit songs getting shorter?

📉The average length of tracks nominated for Song of the Year at the #BRITs has fallen over the past 40 years to just 3 minutes and 7 seconds

Thread 👇🧵…
⏰When the category was launched in the 1980s, the average length of a nominated song was four and a half minutes.

The contenders for Song of the Year at this year’s Brit Awards include:

🎵Easy On Me by Adele: 3:44
🎵Bad Habits by Ed Sheeran: 3:51 Image
But those songs are relatively drawn out in comparison to other nominees in the category 👇

🎵Bed by Joel Corry: 2:58

Comedian @MoTheComedian was in a KFC car park when he got the call to host the #BRITs…
@MoTheComedian "For me the goal is to inspire. There’s probably some young kid who’s watching me, like: ‘Oh my god, I never thought I’d see someone who looks like my uncle or older brother host the Brits’"… Image
@MoTheComedian The comedian spoke to The Big Issue about his career ahead of hosting the #BRITs tonight.

“I love The Masked Singer, because it’s proper Saturday night entertainment TV... I never thought I’d be in a space of doing Saturday night TV"…

1/13 Een #Draadje met #Ernstige #Kritiek op het #Corona-#Beleid van dat #Neoliberale Kabinet van #Rutte.
Ik geef dit al aan vanaf voorjaar 2020, eerst via @OccupySchagen, daarna ook via m'n eigen Account in het Nederlands. Eerst wat cijfers en zo: ImageImageImageImage

1. #ZeroCovid: Beperk Besmettingen, roei 't virus uit.

2. #WeinigCovid: Beperk besmettingen.

3. #HerdImmunity: laat het virus rondrazen in afwachting van vaccins.

Hieronder alle 3, met hun impact.

Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.

#My_Twitter_Rule 20/1
Our youth in a rush to create following on digital platforms. It is good start, but do they know what next. Having big following is just tool, unless one knew what to do with it, interest will die down after a while. Please read & learn who we (Muslims) are?
#My_Twitter_Rule 20/2
But read what? How to build #knowledge. #Information & Knowledge are two different things. Use Authentic sources, Introspection, Deliberation & Exchanges brings #Wisdom to the discourse.
Starting point is always #Quran! Read once translation & commentary....
#My_Twitter_Rule 20/3
Quran is a biggest gift of Allah, a guide, a constitution & a Hidaya. THAWAB is not its primary purpose!
Prophet SAW biography. He is a leader, head of state, a commander, peace maker, Mercy to mankind, role model (husband, father neighbor an orphan himself)

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites" Image
In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)… Image
People from #Gütersloh district may have to scrap all their holiday plans anyway...

An official #Lockdown is just being announced for the entire district.
(for one week, as of now)

1) Most of #history is a total lie, designed by people wanting to infer meaning of historical events in a modern context, as a means to elicit a response from you which suits their needs.

This is a story about the #rothschilds from the early 20th century.

#QAnon #GreatAwakening
2) Even within this tweetstorm are probably a lot of missing nuances. Do tell your stories.

I will start after #WWI and the Treaty of Versailles. It never made sense. Why divide #Germany in these pieces and leave it's people impoverished? Isn't this a recipe for resentment?
3) Why did the #Germans, even though a foreign boot never shot a boot on their soil, make overtures of peace to end the #war, while they were poised to win?

Their objectives were met.

Why was the #USA brought into WWI? Why were large payments sent to #communist #Russia? #QAnon
