Because that would be an excellent way to get a bunch of NATO countries to stop fucking around and actually directly intervene both there and in Ukraine.

As I see it, using Transnistria as a western "front" by the Z army to encircle Kiev, will definitely risk more border incidents.
This is without even considering Moldova's EU candidate status, and Moldova's ambiguous relationship with that " breakaway " region.

It's exactly the same op as they ran in Donbass and Luhsnsk

Yes, instigation & occupation comes right out of the Ruz Imperialisic playbook.
There are more examples, like Georgia, and some attempts in Lithuania as well.

Wealthy countries shoulf stop exporting waste to LICs as well though.

I get what you are saying. But for reference, developed countries also import waste from other counties. All countries are payed for the import and for waste process. What the countries really do with it is an entire other matter, but it seems many countries simply dump it.
Also the proposal to turn it in a methane producing plant, or simply fill it up with soil would be smart choice. Some countries don't do either.

The bot missed what Stoltenberg said:

"The Nato chief, Jens Stoltenberg, has said any attack on the western military alliance would be met with a “united and forceful response”, after Donald Trump invited Russia to attack member countries that he perceived as not meeting their financial obligations.

Stoltenberg said in a statement: “Any suggestion that allies will not defend each other undermines all of our security, including that of the US, and puts American and European soldiers at increased risk. I expect that regardless of who wins the presidential election, the US will remain a strong and committed Nato ally.”

US funding failure will have serious battlefield consequences, says Ukraine (www.theguardian.com)

As the two-year anniversary of Russia’s full-scale war in Ukraine approaches, Ukrainian officials say the delay in US support has already had a clear impact on the battlefield, where Kyiv’s exhausted troops have a severe hardware deficit in comparison to the Russians

The best word I've heard that covers that, is the Portuguese " Saudade "; especially because it's ingrained in the culture ( e.g. Fado) .same for Brazil ofc.

HowRu68 , (edited )

something that didn't happen though

Maybe because longing for something or someone you knew is also Saudade ofc, and is the more commonly known, like for people close to you. Otherwise " sinto falta de" ( I miss).

Afaik [ Brazil and some Portuguese fiends], you can have Saudade for something that might have happened, something you thought happened, never will happen, or even Saudade for something you don't know ever happened, or without knowing whatever it is, or knowing whatever it is or coming from; like undefined.
Like a state of being.

That's also how it's said in the wiki page I linked , a quote:

The Dictionary from the Royal Galician Academy, on the other hand, defines saudade as an "intimate feeling and mood caused by the longing for something absent that is being missed. This can take different aspects, from concrete realities (a loved one, a friend, the motherland, the homeland...) to the mysterious and transcendent.

A good storm in the northeast can knock the power system.

But they didn't mention a storm in Moscow, that's the thing isn'? And the outages have been at multiple places across the RF.

Here is a link fromThe Moscow Times

Also nobody knows what you are talking about when you say northeast : NE from where?

Becasue it's ironic to have a huge oil reserve as a country, but autocrats filled their pockets with money and spend in wars, instead of investing in infrastructure.

It's relational because common people unfortunately always pay the price for having bad leaders; because it's freezing cold in many parts of the world; and finally, because RF Gvment said Europe was freezing to death last year according to their propaganda/ YT link
