  1. More snow this month in Baghdad than in NYC.
  2. Five-year old me would hardly recall the winter of 97-98. I guess this is how it felt.
  3. About an inch in the initial band. I forgot what it was like to see snow accumulate so fast
  4. Iran will never admit it. Russia never apologized for MH17/KAL007, we never (formally) apologized for IR655, and so on.
  5. Quick opinion - war avoided...for now. I don't know what else is really left to sanction in Iran at this point, so that feels like a mostly symbolic move. The focus will likely turn to all the pro-Iran proxies in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen at this point; Israel and the US, along with their partners, should keep their eye out. As long as neither side makes another reckless move, we should be clear of a full-on war. Likely we're back to the same old rhetoric from both ends. But that could easily change.
  6. Air crash might sadly have been someone overanxious who fired at the plane. 82 Iranians reported to be on board so it's unlikely to be a deliberate shootdown. The US has been given an off-ramp by the Iranian government. I pray they take it.
  7. These guys are pretty damn connected. LIke I said, not over yet...maybe for tonight, but certainly not in the future.
  8. I'm willing to bet he would have if there were US casualties. Hopefully more confirmation for the reports of no deaths on our end.
  9. I'm not so sure it's over yet. Maybe not much happening in the next 24 hours, but this could drag out for a long time with rockets and missiles every now and then, like Israel and Palestine. Of course, if Trump does choose to retaliate in the short-term, it could go right back downhill rapidly.
  10. To clarify that is of course no AMERICAN casualties. Unfortunately there were Iraqi deaths.
  11. Assessments are still ongoing, but numerous sources have had the zero casualties report. Hopefully it's just for damage purposes.
  12. Al-Shabaab is a Sunni group that is tied to Al-Qaeda. Highly doubt that's related to these events.
  13. There is little doubt in my mind. We apparently just assassinated one of their senior military leaders. This is simply not good. A war with Iran would be a total disaster, far worse than anything that happened with Iraq. https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/03/middleeast/iran-war-games-kiley-intl/index.html
  14. How many times are wingnuts and MAGAts going to drag this point out?
  15. Guess I can do the virtual hibernation for 45-60 days thing again.
  16. I don't see the need to trade for guys like Lindor and Hader. The pen is currently loaded up pretty thick and Gleyber's our SS of the future. I don't like the idea of trading away big name prospects for them.
  17. Standing at just 1.1" for the year. Per usual, I'm the city's snow loser.
  18. Too bad McTurtle and his merry band of Trumpists have basically already decided on acquittal.
