BingoBoingo: ^ For the same mouth different messages out of each side files
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo if they progress to no it also, it'll be quite the gain for the femstate. in the vein of http://btcbase.org/log/2019-01-18#1888200 of course, which just happens to be a perfect fit for them.
a111: Logged on 2019-01-18 17:04 mircea_popescu: but anyway, in the us the strictly only avenue left to the dnc is to "pretend" to "ignore". if they engage they get crushed. the party's already gone as a going concern, for which reason : the only way an imaginary party can continue its imagined hold on worldly things is through "ignoring" them.
BingoBoingo: Well, overnight alt-President invited the US Embassy garrison to remain over Maduro's expulsion order
mircea_popescu: haha, which do they do ?
BingoBoingo: Uruguay's official line on the situation so far is "We're fucking Uruguay, this is out of our weight class" though individual politician statements take every possible position.
mircea_popescu: because they found the perfect thing to hang tyhem over, maduro can just arrest them and bye-bye posturing.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I imagine they remain so the bombs can fly after Maduro sends the moving trucks
mircea_popescu: 0 bombs fly roflmao, what, so there can be a case of us ambassador hung in bolivar square ?
mircea_popescu: there's no option here : if they stay, maduro arrests them, "hostage situation" doesn't really wash, us stuck spending next 10 years "negotiating" with a maduro it put in a better position than kim ever was.
BingoBoingo: Well if no bombs fly how does aircraft carrier sink?
mircea_popescu: if they leave, derpy imaginary president has to explain it. experience shows he WILL, and the "followers" WILL swallow whatever he says.
mircea_popescu: so they leave.
mircea_popescu: granted if they don't leave and maduro doesn't put them in ice, the situation's resolved the other way.
BingoBoingo: Maybe Pence at all saw how well destablilizing the neighorhood works for Israel?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you ever read http://trilema.com/2012/evolutia-onlinautului/ incidentally ? i suspect i should translate it, precisely explains (in a SEVEN year vintage piece) the problem with eg naggum's efforts, and other fundamental things.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: have not read. loox interesting.
mircea_popescu: i shall trnaslate.
mircea_popescu: thinking about it (since i have to, translation oblige), http://trilema.com/2016/the-chosen/ is probably the one claim to fame of http://btcbase.org/log/2019-01-23#1889542 item.

lobbesbot: asciilifeform: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: in other mildly concerning news, i notice that there's a header-article relation developing. if there's naked girls ima pen a frisky article, if there's a serious doctoral mug ima pen a serios theoretic piece, yet i swear i have no idea at the onset (the box where i put things in dun load the header, for one). it's sheer coincidence, yet it seems to have held for the past 3 or 4 pieces!
