Lying is the mistake that begets more "mistakes".

There are some interesting (to me anyway) parts of that narrative that go back to George Sr who intentionally and quite cleverly (ok the clever bit may have come from advisors) blurred the lines between nuclear weapons and biological weapons. Before the first gulf war they were worried about Iraq maybe using bio weapons so he basically said, "We will treat use of weapons of mass destruction the same so if you use bio weapons, we will nuke you." And it worked. But the follow-on was that George Jr. could use the opaqueness to justify the next war. He only paid attention to the dubious evidence that Iraq might still have a biological program or the ability to start it up again. Then with some smoke and mirrors made it seem like Iraq had a nuke program. Powell never cited anything out of Department of Energy who are the primary agency for nuclear intelligence. And the DOE people knew it was bullshit; there was no nuclear program at the time.

Households must slash energy use to defeat Putin, says Hunt
The Chancellor urged households to “play your part” in reducing the UK's vulnerability to Russia and other despotic regimes. His plea will be part of a reported £25m public information campaign to help the public slash their bills.

It came as the electricity operator EDF delayed the reopening of three French nuclear power stations, triggering concerns that Britain could struggle to import energy from across the Channel on days when domestic supply runs short.

Putin's crony Yevgeny Prigozhin about U.S. elections: "We have interfered, we're interfering and we will continue to interfere. Carefully, precisely, surgically and in our own way; we know how to do it."

Russian court rejects Brittney Griner's appeal of nine-year prison sentence for drug possession

The Moscow Regional Court ruled Tuesday to uphold the sentence. In the ruling the court stated, however, that the time Griner will have to serve in prison will be recalculated with her time in pre-trial detention taken into account. One day in pre-trial detention will be counted as 1.5 days in prison, so the basketball player will have to serve around eight years in prison.

Griner took part in the hearing via video call from a penal colony outside Moscow where she is imprisoned.

Yeah, Adam Curtis' works all are quite epic, drawing from the BBC's camera vaults recorded over decades and putting them together into a collage of his own making. They remain a human legacy of documenting societal and political changes during our life-times.

I've become sort of a fan, since his latter work, "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" (2021)...

No idea where you're coming from with bisquits and head. Heads are needed, and they tend to die in numbers, lately. Was just trying to be friendly with the pal from Fla, not trying to chase anyone away. Well, that might have gone wrong. *blush*
 
Ah. Oh that was just me riffing. No worries. The context was lost on me. My bad. Bud and hon sounded somewhat condescending and I know miamizsun to be thoughtful and non-confrontational so I thought something might be lost in translation and it was except I was the one lost to the point. lol. I didn't mean to interrupt your conversation. carry on...{#Good-vibes}
