Yeah, there was almost something refreshing about watching a boring asshole reading a literal list of policies to a room full of boring assholes for over three hours. I mean, it had its own form of pandering in parts (specific party buzz phrases that don't mean anything), but compared to a lot of what is going around in democratic circles, Xi stuck to policy. :lol:

In other news another Spanish airforce jet crashed, this time an F-18. Also, why is my google feed spamming me about Israeli Air Force F-35 being damaged by Syrian Regime S-200?


Seen stuff about a double bird strike on one jet, much more believable than an s200 hitting one.

Looks like Spain is not going to put up with Catalonia’s shit for much longer. I really don't know what this "we're just asking for dialogue" nonsense was supposed to gain them.

The Type 10 is currently the most sexy looking MBT in existence right now, but as its designed to be a smaller lighter weight MBT, I hope it can actually take a hit from a more modern Russian round. Even with bolt on armor, I kinda cringe at its ability to take a hit.
