The Greenland Gap.
Why didn't submarine patrol planes fly out from Greenland in order to close the "Greenland Gap" (aka The Black Pit, the open area between the ASW air patrols between Iceland and Newfoundland)? Bad weather? Difficulty in operating airplanes out of Greenland? Difficulty in building air bases there? The gap would not be closed until 1943 when long-range ASW patrol planes were made and assigned to it and escort carriers were extensively used.

The USA had permission to build bases there. In April 1940, Nazi Germany occupied Denmark on its way to an invasion of Norway, and almost a year later, the United States signed the US-Danish Agreement on Greenland, which permitted the United States to establish military bases in Greenland. The US had a similar agreement with Iceland, built bases there and flew extensive patrols from there.

- The Mid-Atlantic gap was an area outside the cover by land-based aircraft, those limits are shown with black arcs (map shows the gap in 1941). Bluish dots show destroyed ships of the Allies.

>Bad weather? Difficulty in operating airplanes out of Greenland? Difficulty in building air bases there?

Pretty much. Greenland was used more as a layover stop for ferry flights to the UK. It was easier to operate from Iceland, which had a big city and was also closer to the UK, and aircraft there could range further towards Norway and so on.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenland_in_World_War_II
>Greenland played an important role in North Atlantic air traffic during the war, but the island's role as a major base for anti-submarine warfare assets was hampered by adverse weather, winter darkness, and difficult logistics. For a long period, a flight of six PBY Catalinas of VP-6(CG) was maintained at Bluie West One, carrying out a great variety of missions.

Individually it hasn't been changed too much, the technology gets cheaper and more common, and this is the only difference. The problem is manpower, of course, qualified specialists capable of doing the effective and failsafe surveillance job - you are going to get less of them because of dwindling educational standards. On the other hand, corporation management think they will be able to control all the people with "big data" they receive, if they just going to mine as much as possible. I can't wait for this overgrown hyperstructure to fall down on their own heads.

Remember how popular this place was before newfags who didn't understand that ethnic jokes really were just jokes got all upset about serv being jewish and made up a bunch of bullshit and forced him into surrendering ownership of the site to a more acceptable group of white christians?
What happened, were all those people satisfied after they'd screwed a jew out of his rightful property so they left?
Was OPchan actually 90% jewish to begin with and all the jews left when the white pride crowd took over?
All the people who use to post here sure aren't doing so anymore, what went wrong?

your thoughts on chinese total surveilance
how long before it comes to america?
is it true that if you don't have access to illegal information or substances that you are effectively under 100% total government authority?
this is why i'm hoping thing they start up the west coast marijunana wars again, there aren't too many groups of people who're regularly willing to risk it all trying to pull a fast one on uncle sam, potheads seem pretty crazy in that respect.

  This movie was one of my favourite ones in my coming of age years. It was almost prosthetic by many aspects of it.

Modern surveillance is at least two generations past what you can observe in this movie, and the devices that are displayed here are probably available at some black markets already, because modern commercial GPS trackers are just short of flash memory drive in size.

Gene Hackman was in a 1974 mystery thriller film written, produced and directed by Francis Ford Coppola called The Conversation and it is regarded as a prequel to the 1998 film Enemy of the State, which also stars Gene Hackman as co-protagonist. Hackman's character in Enemy of the State closely resembles Caul: he dons the same translucent raincoat and his workshop is nearly identical to Caul's. Enemy of the State also includes a scene which is highly similar to The Conversation's opening surveillance scene in San Francisco's Union Square.

"The Conversation" (1974) Trailer - Francis Ford Coppola, Gene Hackman https://youtu.be/6TMT8t-NUW8
The Conversation is a 1974 American psychological thriller film written, produced and directed by Francis Ford Coppola and starring Gene Hackman with supporting roles by John Cazale, Allen Garfield, Cindy Williams, Frederic Forrest, Harrison Ford, Teri Garr and Robert Duvall. Nominated for three Academy Awards®, including Best Picture (1974), Harry Caul (Hackman) is a respected but less-than-perfect surveillance expert who is wracked with self-doubt and carrying a heavy conscience since his work led to the death of two of his subjects. So when he comes to believe that his latest assignment - eavesdropping on a pair of young lovers - may end in murder, Harry can no longer avoid confronting the moral consequences of his chosen profession. Also featuring John Cazale (The Godfather Trilogy), Teri Garr (Dick, Mr. Mom, Tootsie) and Harrison Ford (K-19, Indiana Jones, Star Wars) in a cast of favourites, THE CONVERSATION is a tightly gripping big-screen classic that is not to be missed!

Eh. Syrian regime is pretty secular for the region. Don't get me wrong, they've done some evil things, but I don't think exporting Jihadis is one of them. We were pretty tight with them prior to the revolution because of how staunchly anti-Al Qaeda they are.

>this place is awesome i can farm without paying rent

The Mayflower pilgrims nearly had their boat sunk when one of them let their child unattended with access to firearms

The 5th day, we, through God's mercy, escaped a great danger by the foolishness of a boy, one of Francis Billington's sons, who, in his father's absence, had got gunpowder and had shot a piece or two, and made squibs, and there being a fowling-piece charged in his father's cabin, shot her off in the cabin; there being a little barrel of powder half full, scattered in and about the cabin, the fire being within four feed of the bed between the decks, and many flints and iron things about the cabin, and many people about the fire, and yet, by God's mercy, no harm done.

When you look at the actual historic record, "the pilgrims were persecuted" is as much a myth as "Christians are the most persecuted group in America" or "the Soviet Union was the only country that fought Nazi Germany" is today. They were motivated more by taxes than religion, and found a ready welcome in the Netherlands after leaving England, but refused to learn Dutch or to integrate into the local communities and again didn't want to pay taxes. They thought the Dutch were too liberal and feared that their children would become "overly westernized" (to use a modern term) if they stayed. And once in America, they often violently attacked and even murdered any other Christians who refused to follow their beliefs. (During the revolutionary war, one of Benedict Arnold's reasons for turning traitor was the alliance with Catholic France)

All the terrorist attacks in Europe and North America in the past decade have happened in countries that oppose Assad. Assad, and Putin, directly benefit from terrorism in Europe because it destabilizes their enemies and terrorizes people who oppose them. The USSR was "officially" anti-racist but they were covertly supporting a good number of KKK groups during the cold war because racial disunity worked in their interests, likewise now it's turned out they're running a bunch of similar groups in the US via facebook, and have likewise tried to co-opt BLM and similar movements (I say "tried" because apparently blacks are better at spotting Russian plants) in the interest of causing political disunity in the US.

Just look at how much the shills on here crow whenever there's a attack. They love it. But if it's in Russia? "oh no, this doesn't represent all Muslims, as an American we need to listen to Putin's speeches about how Islam is a religion of peace"

The guy who did the shooting isn't the one giving the commands
>get a call about a man pointing a gun a people at a hotel.
>other people in the room
They were operating under these circumstances. So I understand them going in hot.
>Sgt. giving contradictory commands to a guy who's obviously drunk off his ass
This is where the problems start
>Telling the drunk guy to start crawling towards you
...what? Why not do it like a felony stop (youtube it)? Way safer and keeps your guys out of his room's doorway (what they were trying to avoid).

Instead, they put him in the situation where he was reaching at his waist that got him shot. The Sgt. giving the commands should be the one in hot water.

All I've really got to say about it is 1) if I'm not mistaken, the dust cover inscription wasn't considered by the jury, though it did help get him fired on internal policy grounds.

On an tangent, Scott Smith's performance as mayor is precisely why I didn't vote him for governor back in 2014. I'm not impressed by someone who spends a fuckton of federal pork and bond hikes on bullshit like the Riverview and a stadium that the Cubs or even the fucking Sun Devils don't even use. That's after already wasting millions of dollars on Fiesta Mall which is now an giant in-door inner city strip mall and a good chunk of the area where the small businesses and actual neighborhood are is like pre-Arpaio central Phoenix.

The original sanctuary city bullshit in Maricopa County wasn't with Greg Stanton's weasel-wording around the time Trump got elected. Say what you will about Arpaio, but the instant a Village-Voice owned rag like the New Times which isn't even fit to be hobo toilet paper praises someone like Jorge Gascon, you know he's fucking crooked. It should surprise absolutely no one that he ended up moving back to California and continuing his bullshit there for a while before Gavin Newsom tapped him to replace Kamala Harris after she became a senator.

After he left in 2009 the department went though like four chiefs of police before the current one.

  On December 17th at approximately 2 in the morning a unknown number of persons wearing DGCIM patches (Venezuelan military intelligence) approached a Venezuelan National Guard headquarters outside Caracas. They told the soldiers on duty that they were there to carry out a search warrant so the soldiers let them in.

Once inside, they tied up everybody in the building and stole a bunch of rifles and ammunition along with a couple pistols. They spray painted references to Article 350 in the Venezuelan constitution that states that Venezuelans have a duty to oppose tyrannical rule, and harangued the soldiers about how they're dishonoring their uniforms by supporting a government of exploiters and drug dealers and so on. It also turns out the raid was led by Oscar Perez, the police officer who commandeered a helicopter earlier in the year and threw grenades at government buildings in Caracas from it. And of course, he posted video of it on his YouTube channel.

I've been reading about the PKK and Syria a lot, and a name that keeps coming up is Murray Bookchin. Apparently the PKK's leader adopted Bookchin's philosophy, and it forms the basis for the PKK's current political strategy. Even BBC filmmaker Adam Curtis is speculating that his ideas might have a significant presence over the coming decades. Thoughts?
Seems to be the book everyone is reading of him: https://libcom.org/library/next-revolution-popular-assemblies-promise-direct-democracy
