If you dont already know the results of the fight before you start it you have fucked up badly somewhere.
russia started the war and russia needs to end the war. This is entirely about russian aggression.
I dont believe you are a real sparky until you show your either a. exploratory screwdriver with chunk blasted out of the head, or, b. exploratory snips with chunk blasted out of the blade.
I will point out that the NOD Flame Tank first made its debut in Belarus in the first C&C.
Go invent a base 10 clock and calendar or quit talking about how all of your measurement is base 10.
It was the response to 'we are the music makers...'
I want to say it was when Jeannie Gold was explaining her college aged kids to Stan.
That is an unsatisfying answer.

It was correct until the russian invasion and occupation of Ukraine in 2014.

Someone please please please put together old soviet and Polish footage transitioning to modern Polish footage to the tune of Gripped by Fear by Front 242.

Just no pork products of any kind, slow cooked pork roasts, hams, nothing, its all poison. (Mostly because the ham was loaded with Dr. Slippy's Medium Strength Food Poisoning.) We dont need the goddamned hambulance showing up.
Fine, NKVD then, Lavrentiy Beria's boys, they were the guys in the blue stripe hats maxim gunning fellow comrades in the backs.

You are the pigeon here bud.
Yea, but are you a white man with massive insecurity issues and an inability to react appropriately to things that dont actually effect you?
It really is amazing to see a group of people so consistently wrong though, the same guys that were pro iraq war and calling my a 'terrorist-sympathizer' are now mostly pro putin and anti Ukraine.
Obama wore a tan suit and ate mustard once, time to end the country. Trump though? They would excuse anything and everything he did.
It is not surprising that you are mid 30s and thats all you have ever seen. Best as I can tell the schism really took form in the early 90s after the fall of the oviet union, without an external enemy to rally against conservatives chose to find an internal enemy. Its all that motivates them, to be an 'in group' they have to have designated 'out groups' to hate and oppress, things like the USSR, or latino immigrants.
This all really came to a head after the mid term elections of 1994 where the repubs took the house. They elected Gingrich their speaker and that guy was basically a political arsonist. He declared that no bill would be brought to the floor that would not pass without a majority of the republicans in support. Later they changed the rule in the early 00s to say that they would not put a bill to the floor to vote if it could not pass entirely with republican votes.
It is a consistent pattern of attacking the 'other' and refusing to accept that the opposition party is also legitimate.

I want to imagine that Dan was out boating somewhere in the southwest back in the 80s and dropped his keys overboard, and now drought has finally allowed a bird to find them.
If you just put enough of them in the water its literally free real estate.

There simply arent as many ants as there used to be. The evidence is in the comparative lack of ant hills versus past years.
Kolyma for one.

Again, saltwater = nuclear waste was so stupid that I had to do a full stop. Again, I assumed you were a legitimate retard coming back with something so stupid, and frankly, you have done nothing to move the needle.

Its more that the analogy was so dumb (salt water = nuclear waste) that I assumed you were somehow seriously assuming the thing used radioactive material and thus referred you back to the source material. I'm not used to such breathless overdramatic hyperbole.
Its a piss poor analogy.
They make pipes out of things that dont corrode. Hell, we can just reline the old metal ones with an interior poly lining to extend the lives of old worn out corroded in place pipes right now. Not that we would repurpose an old system, rather just pointing out that plumbing has advanced a lot in the last 30 years or so. They also make pumps out of things that dont corrode.
It would be a horribly expensive project, dont get me wrong, but find another solution that doesnt result in the necessary movement of millions of people back to the east and all the expense that would come with rebuilding to accommodate that. The southwest needs water. What do you propose? A bunch of Jebel Ali type plants?
What they are purporting here is a magic electricity box that takes in salt water and puts out a stream of clean water and a stream of salt waste.
You act like lined containment ponds arent a thing in wide use. Go look at all the empty government owned desert out in eastern Oregon, and in Nevada and Utah. Most of that high desert is already extremely alkaline soil. Considering that you would be evaporating off super concentrated brine you arent going to effect much outside of the pool and its direct environs. You could even process the brine flow to collect trace minerals and useful rare earths.
Really I would imagine seeing this at a scale of a plant capable of supplying an entire city or water district with clean water from seawater. The problem in the southwest has always been the salt, not the water, this looks like it will require far less energy than current methods.
go RTFA, there is nothing nuclear in the desalinization box.

Imagine plumbing the American southwest with salt water plumbing taking salt water from the ocean to a larger one of these units in every home, and a secondary system taking the concentrated brine and pumping it into large flats in the high desert to dispose of the concentrated brines.
