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".

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?

I have no idea. But the years that they were allowed to do their thing regionally, created lots of domestic and regional resentment. I just watched an interview with a Christian (Maronite) Lebanese leader, at or after the funeral of another who was killed by the Iranian proxies. They are fed up. I read the subtitles, but heard and saw the tone and emotions. Gas lines formed in Iran on Saurday night when Iran attacked. The Arab world is mocking Iran.

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.
Try this?

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.

From Abu Saleh (telegram channel).
Quote
כל הגזרות פעילות...תמונת מצב

קצב האירועים שמתחילים ונגמרים באזורנו אין לו אח ורע בעולם, אירוע גורר ארוע.

מה הן הגזרות הפעילות:

רצועת עזה
יהודה ושומרון
לבנון
סוריה רבתי
עיראק
תימן
איראן

צה"ל על כל יחידותיו, יחד עם כל מערכת הביטחון על זרועותיו השונים פועלים בכל הזירות המאיימות עלינו מכל כיוון.

אין זירה שלא מקבלת התייחסות, אין זירה שקטה, כולן פעילות.

רוב הציבור לא יודע מה הולך מאחורי הקלעים ואולי טוב שכך, הציבור יודע את מה שרוצים שתדעו מכל מיני סיבות שזה לא המקום לפרטן.

ישראל נמצאת ממש ברגעים אלה תחת איום ששום מדינה לא נמצאת בו בעולם, מאות אלפי טילי קרקע קרקע בליסטיים, עשרות אלפי מל"טים מתאבדים המפוזרים בכל המזרח התיכון מאיימים ישירות על קיומנו אלה הן העובדות.

מול כל כלי המשחית האלה נצבת ישראל הכבשה הקטנה מול 70 זאבים.

רק שהכבשה הזו היא רק תחפושת, אנחנו אולי נראים ככבשה בחוץ אבל בפנים ישנה חיה שהעולם עוד יכיר.

כל הזמן העוקבים החלשים באמונה כותבים לי, "אתה (אבו צאלח) כל הזמן מדבר על אמונה ודת, אני רוצה הוכחות, אני רוצה לראות נס אמיתי ולא סיפורי סבתא לפני שינה".

יודעים מה אני עונה להם??

טיפש, אתה כאן עכשיו חי בנס גלוי, עצם זה שאתה עדיין נושם ממש עכשיו זה נס גלוי.

אז אנחנו מחפשים ניסים? אנחנו חיים בתוך נס, זוכרים מה כתבתי למעלה, רוב הציבור לא יודע מה הולך מאחורי הקלעים ואולי טוב שכך.

בזמן שאנחנו חיים את "החיים הרגילים" שלנו כאן, מקבלי ההחלטות מקבלים החלטות הרות גורל שכל אחת מהן יכולה להפוך את העולם בפשטות.

ימים לא פשוטים לפנינו, אל תתבלבלו ממה שאתם קוראים בכל פינה, אל תאמינו לשום אדם לא משנה מי הוא ומה הוא עושה, יש כאן טונות של מידע שאתם צורכים שמקומו בפח האשפה.

לא סתם כתבתי שבמוצאי שבת זה היה מופע אור קולי, זה הרבה מעבר לכך, איראן לא דומה לחיזבאללה וחיזבאללה לא דומה לאיראן, לא בכמויות ובטח לא במרחקים הקצרים, לכן קחו את כל הדברים האלה בפרופורציות הנכונות, יש לי יותר מתחושה שרבים ממכם חושבים שישראל מוגנת 100 אחוז, אין חיה כזו, אנחנו לא, יש עלינו שמירה מלמעלה זה לא קשור למה שקורה למטה.

אני רק מזכיר כי בקצב הארועים שעפים כאן אנחנו עלולים להתבלבל,

יש לנו חטופים ושבויים
יש לנו את רפיח
יש לנו את חיזבאללה
יש לנו את עיראק
יש לנו את ראש הנחש

כולם יצטרכו לקבל טיפול המלווה בהרבה מאוד אבק שריפה.

אגב תקיפה באיראן, מי אמר או קבע שכל תקיפה חייבת להיות מלווה רק בפצצות??? 😜 תאמינו לי לישראל יש בנק של אפשרויות שיכולות להקריס את איראן.

כתבתי לכם כבר מזמן, תנשמו עמוק עוד לא התחלנו...

אין לנו על מי להישען אלא על אבינו שבשמיים 🙏🙏🙏🙏  ועל אלה שהוא החליט שיהיו השליחים שלו...

אבו צאלח הדסק הערבי

Before using Google translate, make sure the person writing in English can actually spell. Otherwise a waiter could burst out laughing when being asked for small intestines (bowels) when the person wanted small bowls.

Nobody is saying the situation isn't extremely volatile, but there is an element of "באבוד רשעים רינה", although as the Belzer Ruv said, it would be better if the רשע had his fall all at once.

I am not absolutely confident in the following, but I do have a good degree of confidence in it:
People shouting obscenities at Jews and/or grabbing yarmulkes off their heads is not "a pogrom."

Very simple. One guy does that, and he is ostracized, not a pogrom. Anytime, it's acceptable and you can have multiple people as a group doing that impunity, it is a hair breadths away from shefichas dumim.

Hyperbole serves no one, it merely serves to water down the word. Call it out right away and try to put a stop to it but don't call it something it isn't. I agree with @Randomex on this one if the definition is false.

Although you can hear both tzdadim. Wordweb says a pogrom is:
Quote
Organized persecution of an ethnic group (especially Jews)

How do you define organized? I would assume that multiple people doing this because they feel like it falls short of the definition (albeit slightly) - pogroms in the past had that tacit approval of the local authority.
