Maybe Boris Johnson isn't looking so bad anymore.
Boris Johnson, the man ousted as UK prime minister by his own government just three months ago, has emerged as an early front-runner to be the next prime minister.

Any chance that you can post a link to that video so that we can see what you're talking about?

Looks like the residents of the newly annexed regions are so excited about now being part of Russia that they had to declare martial law.

Actually, Russia and Belarus got together and formed the Union State of Russia and Belarus.

Why would the US Navy fund research that would be used as evidence in lawsuits filed by down wind cancer victims against the US government?

Anybody with a decent Geiger counter can probably still find radioactive contamination down wind of the Neva Test Site.

Hiroshima survivors did try suing; they were not able to sue the US government directly and the lawsuits didn't go anywhere
But people down wind of the Nevada Test site did sue the US government and their lawsuits did get somewhere.

Traditional bombs also contaminate the battlefield and also cause cancer - https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/23779497.2017.1369358
So now you're denying that radioactive fallout was found downwind of the nuclear bomb test sites? ???

Who found this? A group organized or funded by the US NAVY?

"Fusion, unlike fission, is relatively "clean"—it releases energy but no harmful radioactive products or large amounts of nuclear fallout."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermonuclear_weapon

Okay, a bit late, but let me complement you on your quote mining skills.  However, a fission reaction is used to initiate the fusion.
Fusion, unlike fission, is relatively "clean"—it releases energy but no harmful radioactive products or large amounts of nuclear fallout. The fission reactions though, especially the last fission reactions, release a tremendous amount of fission products and fallout.

Also:
The misleading term "hydrogen bomb" was already in wide public use before fission product fallout from the Castle Bravo test in 1954 revealed the extent to which the design relies on fission as well.

It is the few nuclear power militaries who have the evidence. You do not have any evidence yourself and are arguing based on nothing more than your belief.
If that's so, then why is Rushy asking us for evidence?  Haven't the nuclear powered militaries already provided sufficient evidence.  Shouldn't the ample documentation of the devastation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki be enough evidence to satisfy any reasonable person?

Yes, the nuclear power militaries have provided a sufficient amount evidence for the existence of nuclear weapons. They have not provided evidence that they are honest about their evidence, however. For that you only have blind belief.

So I suppose that all of the lawsuits and government payouts to people who developed cancer from the radioactive fallout from the nuclear bomb tests are part of the cover story too.

Markjo the nuclear physicist, everyone! He understands nuclear bombs and reactors. You don't. Bow to his knowledge (which isn't just obvious ignorance!). Markjo, it's obvious you don't know what you're talking about, can you stop pretending you do? Why embarrass yourself like this?
Actually, the physics behind nuclear reactors and nuclear bombs really isn't that hard.  The engineering and construction are the hard parts.

Last I checked, an acronym is synonymous with the word abbreviation.

Perhaps you should check again:
An abbreviation is a shortened version of a longer word (such as Dr. or Prof.), while an acronym forms a new word using the first letter of each word from a phrase (such as radar or ASAP). Writers often use the words abbreviations and acronyms interchangeably, yet the two are quite distinct.

Yes, when someone says something mind-numbingly stupid, it usually is a pretty good clue that they were probably joking.
Yes, markjo, that is exactly what happens when someone spends 3 posts defending something idiotic and then flips to "well duh I was kidding" out of the sudden.
How many posts has Rushy spent defending his idiotic claim?

Obviously I was joking.
Yes. As always when you say something mind-numbingly stupid, you were obviously joking. That's also why you defended your claim several times. It was because you were joking.
Yes, when someone says something mind-numbingly stupid, it usually is a pretty good clue that they were probably joking.  You know, like Rushy's mind-numbingly stupid claim that nuclear bombs don't exist.

Maybe you should change your profile name to "Sheldon Cooper" because you both seem to have a lot of difficulty picking up on irony and sarcasm.

Do you believe that boiling water is the same thing as blowing up cities?
If you understand the physics involved, then you would realize that the two are, indeed, very similar.  The biggest difference is the reaction rate.

If anything, nuclear power plants and their complete inability to violently explode (instead they 'meltdown') should tune you into the nonsense that is nuclear weapons.
Ah, so you don't understand the physics involved.  Good to know.

"Now home to a majority of Russian-speaking people, they moved there only in recent decades. Now, Russia has given more than 720,000 Russian passports to roughly one-fifth of the region’s population, according to The Associated Press."
So you're saying that a bunch of Russians move into Ukrainian territory and now want that Ukrainian territory to become part of Russia?  Still sounds like an invasion to me.

59
To put it into more concrete terms, because America invaded Iraq under false pretenses we must allow Russia to erase Ukraine from the map.  By sacrificing Ukraine we cleanse ourselves of the sin of the Iraq invasion.  And this is where Tom has landed with this war I suppose.
Check me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that America annexed chunks of Iraq, Afghanistan or any of the countries that we invaded since WWII.

Tom, if you read the sources cited (including your own) you will see that the 500,000 dead children claim is supposed to be a result of UN sanctions, not US bombing or war crimes that you claimed.
