T_t for tat response for "secretly" placing nukes in Turkey 90 miles from Soviet border. Not released to the press, removal was the reason Khrushchev did in kind.

Can thank Dr. Sergei Khrushchev back in 2007 for that bit of information. Said his father went in a TIRADE after learning about the Turkey based "flower petal" Jupiter missiles.

As I said, Donald Trump would never confront Vladimir Putin in this way.  He is beholden to the Russian leader, not the safety of the American people.

Moot point since President Bill Clinton and Boris Yeltsin of the Russian Federation negotiated an agreement between their respective countries not to target strategic nuclear missiles at each other.

Warmongers and the sore losing left hated the end of the Cold War, so much wants it back. :(

Dictators can't be trusted.

Dictators lie to each other.

Hitler lied to Stalin.

Erdogan lied to trump.

Putin already has trump in his back pocket, it wouldn't be that hard for him to do whatever it is he wanted to do and get away with it.

You might as well face it, the president of the United States is no match for the dictators of North Korea, Russia or Turkey.

Are you ever out of touch with reality, Erdogan is NOT a dictator, was ELECTED in 2014.

Like in this country, the left / progressives hates any nation that wants a secured border, ironically Turkey's southern border.

You are the one out of touch with reality.  Many dictators get elected legally, and then crush all opposition and democratic institutions. This is what Donald Trump is currently attempting to do here, although it is debatable if he was legally elected.

You should read up more on Erdogan:

On 14 June 2018, in a video that was leaked to the public, President Erdogan is caught calling his party members to resort to electoral fraud, by "marking" the votes of an opposition party, HDP, in a bid to consolidate a better position for his own party at the 2018 June elections in Turkey.

Other topics include:

Silencing the press

State of emergency and purges

Authoritarianism

Suppression of dissent

Wow Turkey is now our enemy, when did they left NATO? :lol:

 

 

That Turkey is still in NATO means squat when it comes to whether their leader lied to and played our moronic “leader”, showing him up as the incompetent fool that he is.  You can’t be that naive; you are just twisting yourself in the pretzelogic trying to defend the Effing Moron’s STUPID decision.

Hahaha.  Barack Obama was no fool, nor traitor, nor backstabbed our allies.  All these things Donald Trump did with one phone call last week.  Obama did not try to bribe foreign leaders for his own personal gain.  His biggest mistakes was his caution in exposing Donald Trump’s traitorous collusion with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election!

You really are naive.  Other countries have much more ruthless ways of dealing with the opposition and getting rid of free elections.  Trump is trying to get there, but our institutions may be finally fighting back with this latest impeachment inquiry.

Trump can only serve 2 terms MAX!  If he wins re-election, blame your inept Democratic party!

And how many campaign promises HAS Donald Trump really kept, other than pledges to billionaires and foreign dictators.  He did say he would defeat ISIS, but this week he has opened the floodgates to their resurgence.

Hahaha.  The Effing Moron is setting the groundwork for a much longer stay in power.  Or does your naïveté not allow you to see and hear that!?!

Don’t worry. A good impeachment and removal of the Effing Moron will go a long way to solve 2016.  A more permanent condition is the deplorable base who will not know what to do with their sorry asassssess once the Orange Idiot is no longer around to tweet to them how to think and act.

Now back to the purpose of the thread!

Just watched "Deadly Engineering - Challenger Disaster / Bhopal" (2019)

It took 35 years to make a proper documentary about how and why the chemical disaster happened at Bhopal on December 3, 1984? :huh:

When it was discussed in the past, details were sketchy about the accident itself.

Plant was a piece of junk when it happened and is still sitting there slowly rusting away. :blink::wacko:
