  Some fuckers crawling around the fenced and mined border between north and south korea, and a mine goes off.

No idea which side it's on, or who's who.

South Korea's military has promised "searing" consequences in retaliation for land mine blasts last week that maimed two of its soldiers on the Seoul-controlled southern part of the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ).

The army's announcement didn't go into specifics about what exactly is planned, though included is the resumption of propaganda broadcasts across the border towards rival North Korea for the first time since 2004.

As a result of Tuesday's explosions, one soldier had to have part of each of his legs amputated, according to the South Korean Defense Ministry, while the other had his foot removed at the ankle. The two had been on a routine patrol near a wire fence in the southern side of the border.

There was some shelling beforehand, could SK have been dropping minelets?
>> No. 33182 ID: adbbc9

na the mine started it all, norkos placed a landmine right at a south Korean gate into the DMZ, soldiers going through the gate stepped on the mine. south Korea demanded an apology and some other stuff so norko fired some arty at the south Korean speaks that have been blasting k-pop at the north for years.
>> No. 33183 ID: a34477
Well K-pop aside the real issue is that those speakers are blaring up to date weather information making them a more reliable, accurate and timely weather knowledge disseminating device then anything the average North Korean has access to.

The North Korean gov has access to accurate weather info they just dont have a quick and easy way to disseminate it to its peoples so Norks actively go to the DMZ to listen to the South's weather broadcasts. Pretty hilarious stuff if you ask me.

  The Staggering Cost Of The Last Decade's US War In Iraq — In Numbers Jun. 20, 2014 http://www.businessinsider.com/the-iraq-war-by-numbers-2014-6
...With Iraq back in the news, it's worth reflecting on the staggering price of the last big U.S. entanglement in the country — and recalling what the U.S. has already sacrificed there.

We drew from sources including various news reports, The Brookings Institute's Iraq Index, and the Costs of War Project to document money and blood spent on the Iraq war between 2003 and 2011.

189,000 direct war deaths, 4,488 US service personnel killed directly, 32,223 troops injured (not including PTSD), 134,000 civilians killed directly, 655,000 persons who have died in Iraq since the invasion that would not have died if the invasion had not occurred, 2.8 million persons who remain either internally displaced or have fled the country, $1.7 trillion in war expenses spent by the U.S. Treasury Department as through Fiscal Year 2013, $5,000 spent per second, $350,000 to deploy one American military member, $490 billion in war benefits owed to war veterans, $7 trillion projected interest payments due by 2053 (because the war was paid for with borrowed money), $20 billion paid to KBR, contractor responsible for equipment and services, $3 billion KBR payments Pentagon auditors considered "questionable", $60 billion paid for reconstruction, (which was ruled largely a waste due to corruption and shoddy work), $12 billion per month of the war by 2008, $7 billion owed to Iraq by the U.S. after the war (mostly due to fraud), $546 million in missing spare parts; 190,000 guns, including 110,000 AK-47s, 40 percent increase in Iraqi oil production, $5 billion in revenue from Iraqi oil in 2003, $85 billion in revenue from Iraqi oil in 2011, $150 billion oil companies are expected to invest in oil development over the next decade, $75 billion expected to go to American subcontracting companies, largest of all Halliburton, 0 Nuclear Weapons of Mass Destruction found (though a bunch of chems were discovered, pre-1991 Gullf War & garage kit stuff).

Jeb Bush: ‘Taking Out Saddam Hussein Turned Out To Be A Pretty Good Deal’
AUGUST 13, 2015 http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/jeb-bush-saddam-hussein-good-deal
The quote was also reported on by The Daily Beast. Bush was speaking at a forum sponsored by Americans for Peace, Prosperity and Security at St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa, according to the website.

The Beast reported that Bush went on to say he didn't want to hypothesize about what would have happened if his brother, former President George W. Bush, had not ordered the invasion of Iraq, which led to the toppling of Hussein.

"Then that's back to the future and you could make a movie," Jeb Bush said, according to the Beast.

Bush has previously said "premature withdrawal" in Iraq created the void for the the Islamic State terror group.

The former governor has struggled, since announcing his candidacy, with questions regarding Iraq, the 2007 surge, and the role his brother played in the country after 9/11.

It really would have economically worked out, over the next couple decades, had Iraq turned into a flourishing nation full of oil and petrodollars.

Except then Obama said "eh dont care" and pulled the occupation force out that was holding the country together, handed it over to Khameini and Al-Baghdadi.

Or the fact that the Iraqi government hammered out an agreement with George W. Bush that all US forces would leave Iraq in 2011 and President Obama honored that agreement.

The withdrawal of U.S. military forces from Iraq began in December 2007 with the end of the Iraq War troop surge of 2007 and was completed by December 2011, bringing an end to the Iraq War. The number of U.S. military forces in Iraq peaked at 170,300 in November 2007.

The withdrawal of U.S. military forces from Iraq was a contentious issue in the United States for much of the 2000s. As the war progressed from its initial invasion phase in 2003 to a nearly decade-long occupation, American public opinion shifted towards favoring a troop withdrawal; in May 2007, 55% of Americans believed that the Iraq War was a mistake, and 51% of registered voters favored troop withdrawal. In late April 2007 Congress passed a supplementary spending bill for Iraq that set a deadline for troop withdrawal but President Bush vetoed this bill, citing his concerns about setting a withdrawal deadline. The Bush Administration later sought an agreement with the Iraqi government, and in 2008 George W. Bush signed the U.S.–Iraq Status of Forces Agreement. It included a deadline of 31 December 2011, before which "all the United States Forces shall withdraw from all Iraqi territory". The last U.S. troops left Iraq on 18 December 2011, in accordance with this agreement. US Forces, in the form of air support, resumed operations in Iraq in June 2014, to defend it against ISIS. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Withdrawal_of_U.S._troops_from_Iraq

Ian and Karl of Inrange TV somehow talked a South African hottie with an awesome accent to join them in talking about guns!

You guys are watching your favorites on Full30, right?

Military Arms Channel, Forgotten Weapons, Larry Vickers, Polenar Tactical. The video quality sucks compared to youtub, but hey, gotta support a gun friendly community.

The video also brings up the point about using cheater technology, like good rifles and decent optics. I think I'll ditch the red-dot next time I'm shooting steel.

Congrats bro, you just become the newest member of the Opchan tripfriend stalker club.

People like Clio, Slavic, Brospeh, serv, Acid Man, Dece, Rimfire, Meplat and probably more Imma forgetting, all stalked by stalkers who called them the worst posters and never makes a good post and blah blah I got no life so I must focus on some random internet person blah.

As part of your membership you get a lifetime supply of whiny posts directed at you, a butthurt stalker of your very own, and all the moldy cottage cheese you can eat. Yum yum.

Seriously though, do people not have anything better to do then bitch about posters? I know the board has gotten slow but come on.

Kind of an overblown title and a topic that's hardly press-stopping.


To be frank, I don't care the way they want me to care, and I don't watch movies either. But if someone really ever wanted to press me on it, I'd say it's less a white thing and more of a Jew thing.

Speaking of Fantastic Flop, internet mill's saying that the movie had a willfully poor production value and Josh Trank is such a basket case that he got fired by Disney from the upcoming Star Wars movies.

Kate Mara was on with Kelly Ripa and she said that nobody in the crowd at Comic-Con noticed them outside their panel.

I don't really feel sorry about what Fox has done for the same reasons that despite being Asian I'm not really railing for more Asian-Americans in Hollywood. Capeshit's a business just like show business is a business, and unless the diversity crowd can bend the producers' ears in the future (which they might), it won't matter if they're already controlling the art and letters in the comics themselves, because all the Kamala Khan or Miles Morales or whatever merch isn't going to cut it for the bottom line. Their respective top audience demographics that bring in the most bucks are neither minorities nor women.

Just off the top of my head, I was thinking of Sanaa Lathan's character in the first Aliens Vs. Predator movie. Yeah, the movie was not Oscar material, but it wasn't bad, and she did a wonderful job with what she had to work with. Black, female, action-movie star.

Anderson in Ender's Game was black, I don't remember her or Graff even having race mentioned in the book. It was a good casting call.

I think a lot of the problem is that roles are either written for characters that couldn't really easily be race-switched because they're written to have a certain background (How to make a lower-middle-class wannabe-soldier like Captain America black, without turning it into a racial commentary on 1940s Brooklyn?) , or that they're heavily (badly) stereotypical.

I haven't read the comics, was Iron Man's buddy Rhodes white? Wouldn't have mattered, really, and that was an example of a role that literally any race could have played, and played well. Same with Falcon. The Matrix was all over the place, and well-cast as well.

But then, you also have the Fast and Furious movies, which are diverse as hell, but they're all fairly stupid stereotypes, too. Big muscly guys, cars and hoes, lotsa booze, etc... It's not helping the situation when folks of Race B are acting in movies that make them all look like assholes or fools.

I don't have a problem with the Human Torch being black, I have a problem if that characterization turns, for lack of a gentler way to phrase it, into gangsta ghetto trash. It's the culture, not the skin color, and separating the two in film seems to be a very tricky thing.

I mean, look at the two Bad Boys movies. Black heroes, but instead of being cool, professional, and upstanding, you've got Martin Lawrence. Will Smith yelled a lot, but I'd be angry and yelling too, if I had to deal with that number of gunfights and an utterly fucktarded partner. But how do I, as a white guy, write a movie where there's a proper (let's say "equal to the demographic disposition of America") number of females and blacks, if the current crop of black actors is of a certain culture, but I'm writing a movie about some calm, collected scientists and soldiers dealing with an alien invasion?

I mean, I'm a few thousand words into a story about an alien invasion. Let's say the book (which I'll probably never finish, because I'm lazy as fuck) is a huge hit, and they want it adapted into a movie. Let's say that I'm not really the type to talk much about the skin tones of my characters, so the character of "Paul Stone, radioastronomer, audiophile, and all-around average guy who gets tapped to be on the First Contact team by his local gov't " gets played by a black guy. Easily doable, right up to the point where they start decidin

From the first link.

>film lovers wanting to see change in Hollywood have the opportunity to vote with their dollars. So whether you’re supporting Michael B. Jordan in Fantastic Four or Meryl Streep in Ricki and the Flash, make your moviegoing bucks count for something this weekend.

Most film lovers and goers might want change but they want a good movie more.

Both those movies are just going by ranking alone fucking terrible. Really fucking terrible in the case of Fant4stic and average to bad for Ricki and the Flash. They are bad movies. Ricki and the Flash was apparently a poorly written Diablow Cody movie and Fant4stic was a jumbled mess made by some immature asshole. Also The Thing without pants.

They aren't bad movies because black Johnny Storm or because there is a vagina in the movie not about the Scarlett Speedster, they are just bad. And people shouldn't expect people to watch bad movies just because they have minorities or women.

If movies starring or made by minorities and women are good then it stands to reason if we carry the one, reverse the polarity on the proton couplers that those movies will have people watching them. People watch movies with Denzel Washington when they are good. People watch movies made by Robert Rodrigious and Del Toro when they are good and mostly stopped when Rob made shitty Spy Kids and shitty NotShirtlessShirtlessWerewolfBoy and RedheadLoliGirl. Oprah movies get watched by buttloads of people even if they rewrite history.

Most people watching movies don't give a shite if the main actor or actress is white or negroid or male or woman. Most people watching movies watch because it looks like a good movie or because they like the main actor/actress.

Now right now most big name actors and actresses are white. But they aren't big names because they are white, its because people enjoy their performances.

>was Iron Man's buddy Rhodes white?

No. And neither was Falcon.

My only issue is when the actor, presence-wise, doesn't fit the role; Don Cheadle's a fine actor. For certain roles; "military man" is not one of them, IMO.

Same goes for Will Smith, Martin Lawrence & Jamie Foxx. None of them suspend my disbelief that they are supposed to be "action stars." I primarily see them as comedians.

Terrence Howard? Yes, I can see him as an action star/military man. Michael Jai White? Yes. Denzel Washington? Yes (and Goddamn if he hasn't played military men convincingly). Tucker Smallwood (Commodore Ross in "Space: Above & Beyond")? Yes.
