Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that the massive explosion in Beirut was a bomb attack has revived fears of the president’s potential to foment international crises.

In off-the-cuff remarks at the White House on Tuesday, Trump called the blast a “terrible attack”.

“I’ve met with some of our great generals and they just seem to feel that this was not some kind of a manufacturing explosion type of event,” the president told reporters. “It was a bomb of some kind.”

A massive terrorist attack .. in the orange president's mind. It seems he made up a coversation with his generals that never actually happened, then made a statement based on that.
The blast killed over a hundred, but the idiot president could have killed a lot more if he'd ordered revenge attacks against whomever he imagined the bombers were.

Saudi, America's big pal in the middle east (as far as Arabs go) is developing nuclear tech - The US regime hardly says much.
Yellowcake uranium is a big deal in more than a few ways, more if you have background.

A massive oil producer is looking at nuclear - Nothing to do with a bomb, but a lot to do with oil reserves. Once you look at their Vision 2030, you start to understand.

Saudi was where the petrodollar was born, but that country now does more business with China than it does the US, and it does so in BRICS (As with other GCC countries).

.. and a lot more

The real story here has little to do with yellowcake uranium, but a lot to do with a shift in world power away from the US in favour of China. The dangerous part is how the US manages the situation as they have a choice of accepting their delcline gracefully, or starting a war.

What does it actually mean?

I have a 100Mb package with virgin. According to speedtest.com my download speed varies between 15 and 22 and upload speed is about 4.
I am currently downloading a very large file and it's reporting its progress as varying between 2.5 and 4Mb/s, which means it's going to take three hours instead of the 25 minutes I was expecting.

If the "speed" claimed by the provider doesn't refer to data transfer speed, what does it refer to?

The Home Office has agreed to stop using a computer algorithm to help decide visa applications after allegations that it contained "entrenched racism".

The Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants (JCWI - also known as ABoW - A bunch of wankers) and digital rights group Foxglove launched a legal challenge against the system.

Foxglove (FABoW - Foxglove, Another bunch of wankers) characterised it as "speedy boarding for white people".

The Home Office, however, said it did not accept that description.

"We have been reviewing how the visa application streaming tool operates and will be redesigning our processes to make them even more streamlined and secure," it said in a statement.

The controversy centred over an applicant's nationality being used as a part of the automatic system.
Lefties are moaning again, this time because common sense is being used in preference to leftie blind stupidity.
A suggested example might well be a visa application from Haiti, a country with an attrocious crime rate, being treated differently from an application from the Dominican Republic, a country with far fewer issues and a massively better economy.
It's just common sense to look at these two countries in different lights because they are different places with different socio-economic conditions, but the moronic lefties tell us it's racist, even though the two countries are the same island and have the same racial mix.

Isn't it time all these leftie groups were made illegal on the grounds they're a bunch of time wasting morons?
