In summary: Earlier this year Park Geun-hye, the daughter of Korea's third president/military dictator who was assassinated in 1979, turned out to have had this Rasputin style cult-leader/psychic and his daughter as BFFs/"spiritual advisors" who naturally used this position to take bribes bribes, blacklist people they didn't like, enable corruption, influence government, etc. (The guy who assassinated Park Senior claimed this was one of the motivations for killing him.)

The resulting corruption investigations have nailed a number of important people including the VP of Samsung who, amongst other things, formed a "equestrian team" for the company, said team received $8 million dollars and a horse worth $1 million but never grew larger than Female Rasputin's daughter and a single coach.

Currently the president's supporters have started rioting and attacking the police, and three of them have died so far, including a 70 year old man who apparently climbed on top of a police bus and then fell off.


>A South Korean court removed the president on Friday, a first in the nation’s history, rattling the delicate balance of relationships across Asia at a particularly tense time.

>Her removal capped months of turmoil, as hundreds of thousands of South Koreans took to the streets, week after week, to protest a sprawling corruption scandal that shook the top echelons of business and government.

>Park Geun-hye, the nation’s first female president and the daughter of the Cold War military dictator Park Chung-hee, had been an icon of the conservative establishment that joined Washington in pressing for a hard line against North Korea’s nuclear provocations.

>Now, her downfall is expected to shift South Korean politics to the opposition, whose leaders want more engagement with North Korea and are wary of a major confrontation in the region. They say they will re-examine the country’s joint strategy on North Korea with the United States and defuse tensions with China, which has sounded alarms about the growing American military footprint in Asia.

WikiLeaks has published a huge trove of what appear to be CIA spying secrets.

The files are the most comprehensive release of US spying files ever made public, according to Julian Assange. In all, there are 8,761 documents that account for "the entire hacking capacity of the CIA", Mr Assange claimed in a release, and the trove is just the first of a series of "Vault 7" leaks.

Already, the files include far more pages than the Snowden files that exposed the vast hacking power of the NSA and other agencies.

In publishing the documents, WikiLeaks had ensured that the CIA had "lost control of its arsenal", he claimed. That included a range of software and exploits that if real could allow unparalleled control of computers around the world.

It includes software that could allow people to take control of the most popular consumer electronics products used today, claimed WikiLeaks.

"'Year Zero' introduces the scope and direction of the CIA's global covert hacking program, its malware arsenal and dozens of "zero day" weaponized exploits against a wide range of U.S. and European company products, include Apple's iPhone, Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows and even Samsung TVs, which are turned into covert microphones," the organisation said in a release.

The public files don't include the cyber weapons themselves, according to a statement. The organisation will refrain from distributing "armed" software "until a consensus emerges on the technical and political nature of the CIA's program and how such 'weapons' should analyzed, disarmed and published", it said.

This is what cracks me up about all the Snowden hate/leaks this, leaks that stuff. The what of it all is hardly surprising at all, but that part is what (barely) gets the populace riled up for a week or two before they forget again.

Meanwhile what Snowden leaked that caused the gov to flip out wasn't the lol methodology, it's *who* we were really watching. Which wasn't so much terrorist groups/foreign govs/or domestic spying... it was environmental groups.

>In their haste to post articles about the release, almost all the leading news organizations took the WikiLeaks tweets at face value.

>Yet on closer inspection, this turned out to be misleading. Neither Signal nor WhatsApp, for example, appears by name in any of the alleged C.I.A. files in the cache. (Using automated tools to search the whole database, as security researchers subsequently did, turned up no hits.) More important, the hacking methods described in the documents do not, in fact, include the ability to bypass such encrypted apps — at least not in the sense of “bypass” that had seemed so alarming. Indeed, if anything, the C.I.A. documents in the cache confirm the strength of encryption technologies.

The CIA stuff got leaked man, everyone has access to their backdoors. This is open information.

According to French intel sources anyways.

>According to a French journalist, Israel’s newly received F-35A Adir stealth fighters have already seen combat. Reportedly, a first air strike was flown against targets in Syria in January – less than a month after the jets first touched down in Israel.

>Georges Malbrunot, who writes for French newspaper Le Figaro, cited French intelligence sources. He posted on Twitter today that examples of the Israeli F-35 – two of which have been delivered to the country to date – took part in a raid over Syrian territory on the night of January 12-13. The mission saw them strike objectives around the capital, Damascus.

>According to Malbrunot, the F-35s targeted warehouses containing Russian-made Pantsir-S1 mobile surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems that Israel feared could be delivered from Syria to Hezbollah forces operating in Lebanon. The warehouse was located at Mezzeh, a military airfield in Damascus.

>During the same attack, the Israeli Air Force (IAF) also reportedly destroyed an S-300 SAM battery deployed near the Syrian presidential palace, on Mount Qassioun. According to the same unnamed French intelligence source quoted by Malbrunot, the F-35 aircraft finally overflew the palace of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad, before returning to Israel.

>Malbrunot provided a final quote from an unnamed soldier, explaining that: ‘With the Pantsir, Hezbollah ensures that the Israeli Air Force is almost totally unable to operate over Lebanon.’

>Providing the account is true, it seems unlikely that Israel would admit the use of F-35s at this stage. However, in the past the IAF has been quick to put new assets into combat if required for specific missions – and the continued effort to prevent advanced weapons landing in Hezbollah hands may fit that remit.

Proposed Oklahoma legislation heading to the Senate would exempt property owners from civil action if they destroy drones not regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration.

The proposed bill, authored by Republican Sen. Ralph Shortey, passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee with a unanimous vote Feb. 21, the Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/2lwsEMG ) reported.

Shortey, who said the issue has become a big problem, cited an incident in 2015 when a drone was shot down during a pigeon shoot being held to raise money for Republican U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe. Showing Animals Respect and Kindness, an animal protection advocacy group, was filming video of the event on private property.

Shortey said the measure doesn't mention how the drone should be taken down, whether it is with a gun, a net or another device. He also said the measure doesn't exonerate a person participating in a criminal activity, such as discharging a weapon where it's prohibited except for self-defense.

The FAA seems to have some regulation for all uses of drones.

The vast majority of FPV drone pilots routinely buzz residential areas for fun, so on some level they deserve to have their hobby destroyed.
I just don't like that the government has to step in, with FAA or with this shit. I would much rather that commercial directed-energy weapons were used to soft-kill them.

No mercy for the dronetards though, they brought this on themselves.

No it's more that technically skilled personnel are more likely to play video games. The whole correlation is not causation thing. The idea that you play Call of Duty 12 hours a day and suddenly that makes you a great prospect for the Air Force is ludicrous. You've still gotta get a GED from a 4 year and then go through officer and flight training same as somebody who would end up flying C-130s or F-16s. Though I think now the sensor operators can be enlisted.

>What kind of drone (capacity wise) do you need to drop a decent payload anyway?

About the same size as a real airplane. Attempts to put guided mortar shells on smaller drones like the RQ-7 have had little success.
>> No. 115849 ID: d4c8ee
They changed it back in December so that senior enlisted can get sent through pilot training for the Global Chicken. IIRC it was E8s and above (so at least 8 years of prior service) with a six year commitment after graduation.

Meanwhile the current bonuses for pilot retention have been increased to almost half a million for 9 years because flying a CRJ or 737 back and forth is a better option than staying in the Air Force, in both morale and pay aspects.

The American College of Pediatricians issued a statement this week condemning gender reclassification in children by stating that transgenderism in children amounts to child abuse.

>The American College of Pediatricians urges healthcare professionals, educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. Facts – not ideology – determine reality.

>1. Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: “XY” and “XX” are genetic markers of male and female, respectively – not genetic markers of a disorder. The norm for human design is to be conceived either male or female. Human sexuality is binary by design with the obvious purpose being the reproduction and flourishing of our species. This principle is self-evident. The exceedingly rare disorders of sex development (DSDs), including but not limited to testicular feminization and congenital adrenal hyperplasia, are all medically identifiable deviations from the sexual binary norm, and are rightly recognized as disorders of human design. Individuals with DSDs (also referred to as “intersex”) do not constitute a third sex.

>suicide rates among faggots.jpg

There is little difference in a child being groomed to be a child bride or fucktoy from early ages on, and grooming a child to be a deviant.

People for instance have had child brides through much of history, was there harm done to the children then? Kids sexually mature at what, 12? Biologically they're good to go.

>The little girl in the VICE piece I posted had a little "Boy Princess" book. That book didn't make her transsexual. It's there to help the kid deal with her situation.

The VICE piece that is no longer available. And that is a tall statement to make. How do we know for instance the child wasn't picked on for something, and seeing nobody picks on girls he decides it's easier to be a girl.
The parent(s) being morons who have little understanding of their own kid and can't make a firm stand to man up the pussy little faggot instead of turning him into a woman, acquiesce with the kid's insistance on being a girl. For instance.

You are taking the assumption transfags aren't mental patients as is, and are thus likely to kill themselves regardless.
In today's day and age where many are tip-toeing around them being careful what they say, even encouraging them to be openly faggots they still somehow find it's too hard to cope.

>Ignoring the argument in this thread about whether or not this accounts for any statistically significant portion of deviants.

Well if you had faggots showing you their dicks all your life and shoving them up your ass as well, I guess you could consider it normal where you come from. From where I see things, deviants are either multiplying or they came out of the woodwork in the past few decades.
If they're multiplying, then we're making more. If there was always a set number of them, I prefered it back when they weren't openly proclaiming their deviancy.

>Let's make their lives harder just to be assholes.

By calling them what they are? Serious disingenuity here and it's obvious why. To avoid the fact it's a retarded concept to have a 3 year old tranny.

Freed up by the Supreme Court’s ongoing reluctance to engage in depth with the Second Amendment, the Fourth Circuit has taken it upon itself to rewrite Heller en banc. In a 10–4 decision, issued yesterday afternoon, the court upheld Maryland’s ban on both “assault weapons” and “high capacity magazines.” By so doing, it deprived the people of Maryland, the Carolinas, and the Virginias of the core protections to which the Constitution entitles them.

As Judge Traxler’s dissent pointedly establishes, the majority achieved this transformation by contriving “a heretofore unknown ‘test,’ which is whether the firearm in question is ‘most useful in military service.’” In effect, this “test” is designed to permit judges to determine that any weapon they might dislike is unprotected by the Second Amendment and can therefore be prohibited with impunity. Forget that Heller contains its own explicit tests. Forget the “common use” standard. Forget “dangerous and unusual.” There’s a new kid in town, and he’s coming for your rifles.

Mini-14s are $1000 new and have issues, most notably they're overgassed, and the barrels flex too much and need to be replaced with either a heavy barrel or have a barrel strut attached.

How so? "Terroristic threats" is a general catch all for threatening to harm another person or property. Gets used all the time for idiots calling in bomb threats because they don't want to go to work or whatever.

For example, threatening to shoot up a school.

Banging on somebody's door and waving a gun.

Threatening to kill your wife and assaulting her after she asks you to buy socks for the kids. (jesus fucking christ)

>certain powers like Israel, Saudis, Turkey and NATO all independently and sometimes together worked to promote the Arab spring
But on the other hand, they can sometimes get a lot of friction, and as far as I know it has been exploited a great deal of times before. For example, it is pretty clear why there's two insurgent armies in Syria that can't unite at all even though they are both fighting against central government. It is because "FSA" is funded directly by western powers and allies, while "ISIS" is clearly supported by Arab oil kings. While in reality there's no FSA or ISIS, only a lot of different groups that fight for their own reasons.

US strategists, of course, are themselves trapped in a huge dilemma. They can't decide, who to fight and who to support. They would like to support ISIS to fight against EU, China and Russia, to support EU to fight against Russia and ISIS, and support China to fight against ISIS and Russia as well, to support Russia in fight against ISIS, EU and China. But after all the consideration, all they come to is just more of different sorts of terrorists. We don't know why, maybe it is just because it somehow worked last time (maybe not).

Also a reminder that border patrol agents routinely violate the rights of American citizens within the 100 mile "constitution free zone" and are almost never punished for this.
>The Trump administration is seeking to loosen some security requirements for hiring Border Patrol agents in order to meet a dramatic surge in immigration enforcement, according to internal memos obtained by Foreign Policy and analyzed by five current and former officials in the Department of Homeland Security.

>Customs and Border Protection, part of DHS, is seeking approval to relax some stringent standards that have made it difficult for the agency to meet recruitment targets in recent years. That includes a request to potentially loosen congressionally-mandated requirements such as a polygraph, as well as an entrance exam and background check.

One former DHS official said the current requirements, especially the lie-detector test, are “insanely cumbersome,” and a big reason the agency has trouble recruiting compared with other law-enforcement agencies and even other immigration bodies within DHS, such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

No I don't want you posting videos of border security forces attempting to do their job, I already know they try every day in spite of faggots.

First of all Ivan, nobody in the US calls the border patrol the "border security forces," despite your continual attempts to make it look like you're not sitting in a basement in St. Petersberg earning half a ruble per post.

Second, their job is to protect the border, not violate the constitutional freedoms of American citizens hundreds of miles away from the border.

also good job admitting you're using a proxy to shill for yourself.

WTF are you talking about?

>their job is to protect the border
And how do you propose they do that without:
1. Power to question people crossing the border
2. Power to search vehicles crossing the border
3. Power to detain those who break the law

The kind of logic you're using would lead to THE ONLY KIND OF BORDER CONTROL POSSIBLE would be shooting anyone who tries to cross from Mexico into America with a cannon at long range.

Even Americans who went there and are coming back would have to be shot before their identity could be ascertained, because the border patrol wouldn't be able to fucking ask for papers to determine their citizenship.

I'm fine with that kind of border but... you're kind of shite at being a liberal mate!
