LMS - Last Man Standing.. Not FMS (First Man Standing) - This game is for night time only, not morning, afternoon, or evening.. NIGHT TIME ONLY!!

At night while most of the world is sleeping there are some members which are looking to socialize since they have no one else to speak to; they play a really exciting and fun game which basically every couple minutes you write a comment, the comments range from standing to sleeping, from young grasshoppers to old grasshoppers. it usually begins around 1:00 am EDT

RULES OF THE GAME:

1) Game starts at 1am Eastern, 12am Central, 11pm mountain, 10pm pacific... You get the point.
2) Anyone can call a roll call, just make a reply with "Roll Call". The roll call must be readable to the naked eye.
3) No more than one roll call every thirty minutes.
4) You have 30 minutes to respond to the roll call to stay active.
5) To respond to a roll call just post a reply with "Here" or "y y y"
6) If after one hour there are no more "Roll Calls" or "Heres", then the last person to post correctly either by calling a roll call or with a reply of "here" is declared winner of LMS.
7)You must have been awake for at least 12 hours before making or answering a RC.



OR IN SHORT:

When someone calls for a roll call. No more than one every 30 minutes and you have 30 minutes to respond "Here".

don't - something a person should not do.

DDF echo-chamber  :)
don't - don't do it or we will wipe you off the face of the earth.

There is a very long distance between "it would be nice if you wouldn't do that" and wiping off the face of the earth.

"Don't" usually needs a qualifier: "or what?" When the leader of a country which prides itself as being the most powerful on Earth says, "Don't," it's assumed that the, "Or what?" is a somewhat significant consequence. When there is no consequence, there's a legitimate question to be asked.

On the other hand, it still remains to be seen what if any consequences Iran may face. Biden's statement last night did mention convening the G7 and we will see what comes out of that and hopefully it will have real teeth.

I am confused.
The 6-day war was a massive pre-emptive strong response.
There are numerous situations where Israel has responded forcefully (strong response) since then.
Things are not that simple.

IMHO the effective Israeli response should be an unequivocal announcement that henceforth if any of Iran's tentacles (proxies in Yemen, Iraq, Gaza, Lebanon etc.) attacks Israel, the response will be first at the heart (Iran). (And I think the world at large should do the same, and not tolerate what's wrong going on in the Red Sea!)
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

What will then stop a different bad actor from posing as one of those proxies and attacking, just to stir up the conflict? It's hard to make such a blanket threat regarding proxies.

Echo-chamber is one thing. Then we have something that goes way past that and Kool-Aid drinking. Not sure what to call it but we have one member that is in first place without no one else in site.

DON'T

Kirby: “Eh, let me finish. He added military resources to the region right after October 7 and then, when we had an inkling that this kind of thing was coming, he added even more military resources to the region, more destroyers that were capable of shooting down ballistic missiles, fighters — fighter squadron that was able to shoot down drones and that's what we did. So, you can talk about the ‘don't’ word all you want, but let's talk about what did happen. And what did happen was Iran utterly failed. And if I'm sitting in Tehran right now, I'm betting that President Biden takes it pretty seriously. When he says, ‘don't’ escalate, he’s going to act to make sure that you can, and they didn't. Yes, they fired an unprecedented amount of munitions, but how much of a success that they have, Peter? None. Zero. Very little infrastructure. It was an embarrassing failure for the Supreme Leader for the IRGC.”

So, don't, or else we will try to block your attempt?
Is that meant to be a deterrent?

Biden has backed up his word with actions. The US defense of Israel is "iron clad".

Now Israel has the iron dome and the iron clad.  :)

Sorry, the attack had hundreds of teeth.
The fact the Israel has the best defence system in the world against airborne threats (and the allies helped them against the multitude of threats) does not nulify the fact that Iran attacked Israel with tremendous potential lethality.

The ironclad is long obsolete.
Anyway, is he sending the USS Monitor or the USS Cairo?  ;D

And what happens if Iran decides to use it's closest and most heavily armed proxy, Hizbullah? Who pays the price if the Iron Dome and Iron Clad and any other defense system has a tiny failure that results in loss of innocent Israeli lives?

It's a tough dilemma. No one wants escalation. No one wants an official WW3. But the price for avoiding an open and declared WW3 is an ACTUAL WW3 that has been going on for years with the IslamoNazi Ayatollah regime working mostly through proxies, and other Islamic forces around the world fighting their own Jihad.

In other words @CountValentine, how many of your own children would you be willing to sacrifice to avoid escalation into a declared WW3? (this is the dillema faced by Israelis. I don't envy Netanyahu, or other decision makers).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

What would actualy happen if the US and its western allies decided to go full out against Iran and its proxies? short of nuking the place, how long would it actully take to nueter the entire Iran axis?

And from another perspective, that I would assue many here might agree with, there's a price to pay for being arrogant and over confident in one's own abilities. Humility, especiallly in front of the Master of this world, might be the recipe needed.

I have posited that Trump being elected president was a sign from above to all pundits and political experts that they are lacking humilty. When that didn't work, the world got COVID-19, where all scientists and leaders needed to say was that this is beyond them and caution is needed. But instead they continued with the arrogance of KNOWING what's going on, what needs to be done, how the virus acts, how it is transmitted, etc. etc. ALL OF WHICH HAVE BEEN PROVEN WRONG.
