Y’all please educate me. Does the Brit monarchy have any effects on policy? If so or not so what’s the uproar about?September 12, 2022 at 12:49 am #115699choochParticipantSeptember 12, 2022 at 3:12 am #115701
‘Don’t the Russians have total air superiority? Don’t they have missiles which can hit any target in Ukraine? Then how is the Ukrainian army able to resupply?’
Easily explained: the fascists use schools, apartment building and hospitals etc. as weapons stores and combat fighting positions, and when they need to move equipment or cannon-fodder they commandeer civilian vehicles whenever possible.
Unwilling to make indiscriminate attacks, the Russians hold their fire until the Uke/US/UK military units are in exposed positions and are confused and suffering low morale after making suicide attacks.
That said, the Russians have specifically targeted particularly nasty Ukrainian units via long range missiles and bombs when those units are holed up in a civilian-free location.

‘Will Putin declare war and force general mobilization?’
Putin has no need to declare war. The US-UK already have [in 2014].
The Special Military Operation to de-Nazify Ukraine commenced shortly before the US/UK were about to launch their invasion of Russia.
As for general mobilisation, again Putin has no need: Russia is using less than 15% of its military capability at the moment.
One of Putin’s major concerns at the moment is the welfare of the ‘tsunami’ of people leaving Ukraine eastwards.
That said, it is reported that most of the villages occupied by the fascist forces at the moment were depopulated a while ago, and most of the population of the contested zone has already moved to the safety of Russia.September 12, 2022 at 3:36 am #115703

Before she died, Lizzie ‘owned’ about 1/3 of the land area of Australia. Now Charlies ‘owns’ it.
He also ‘owns’ about 10% of the land area of NZ, and everything under the top layer of dirt in NZ. it’s called ‘Crown’ Land.
Crown Resources are what bought-and-paid-for politicians orchestrate to looting and polluting of.

‘PM announces one-day public holiday to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II’s passing on Monday, Sept 26, same as South Canterbury anniversary day’
Everyone gets an extra day holiday. Except people who live in Canterbury: they need to be discriminated against and punished for living there.September 12, 2022 at 4:03 am #115707
Breaking news: ‘The [NZ] Government has declared that the COVID-19 emergency is over.’September 12, 2022 at 5:55 am #115708
What the professional* liars are saying:
‘4:55pm – Prof Michael Plank from Te Pūnaha Matatini says with COVID-19 moving from an “acute threat” to an “endemic disease”, it’s understandable some interventions used to flatten the curve “are less effective as we move into the next phase”.
“Blanket measures such as mask mandates in places like retail, schools and workplaces are likely to have a marginal effect on the number of infections in the long-term. The reason is that, at any given point in time, the large majority of the population will be immune to the virus and so the majority of masks will be having little or no effect.
“Masks do have downsides and it’s important to weigh those against the benefits they provide. Many countries have lifted mask mandates without experiencing a significant increase in sickness or death as a result.
“However, this needs to be balanced against the fact that mask wearing still affords protection to individuals who are at higher risk. It makes sense to target measures to high-risk settings such as healthcare and aged residential care. Mask requirements may also need to be re-introduced for example if a new variant threatens to cause a major wave.
“Overall today’s changes look like a reasonable response to the current situation. But we should use this period of relative respite to focus on lasting public health measures like improving indoor air quality, better sick pay entitlement so everyone can afford to stay home when they are sick, and continued investment in vaccine development and delivery. These are sustainable measures that can largely happen unnoticed by the general population but will deliver health benefits more broadly than just for COVID-19.”
4:50pm – Here is Auckland Mayor Phil Goff’s reaction to the announcement:
Mayor Phil Goff says the government’s decision to remove the country’s COVID-19 Protection Framework (known as the traffic light system) reflects the significant reduction in risk posed by the virus due to rapidly falling infections.
The traffic light system will be removed from midnight on 12 September, including masking rules; however, some mask requirements will remain in sectors such as healthcare where there is continuing need for them.
Mayor Goff says, “The traffic light system has helped Kiwis to manage the risk to themselves, their families, and our communities for nearly a year.’
