The linked article is very poorly researched.

It gives the person's last (or first) name, but not the complete name. Just starts quoting by name in the middle.

Also, it lists Comcast by name but just says "employed by a large accounting firm". Looks like they could have spent five minutes more on research so we know who to blame.

The other Arab countries don't want the Palestinians, despite all their talk of sovereignty.

Egypt guards the South boundary of Gaza. Jordan guards the East side of the West Bank. They won't let the Palestinians out.

In a rational world, Egypt and Jordan would annex the areas and take responsibility for subduing the people with rockets. But the area is so heavily settled it will be a net loss to anyone. So they just guard the perimeter - much better than America guards their Southern border.

The statistics I've seen for the chance that a person will commit a death and dismemberment crime are equal for all races (within the margin of error) if you look only at the people with no criminal record.

That's easily explained as most people committing death or dismemberment don't startwith that crime, but work their way up to it.

And this is the endgame of all of the 'nuclear free' 'disarmament' talks. Ukraine relied on the treaty, signed by the US, UK and Russia to keep them safe and independent. Russia is violating it. The US and UK are doing nothing concrete to stop it. Do you think for one moment Russia would have invaded if Ukraine were still a nuclear power?

A failure will not appear until a unit has passed final inspection.
