A verbal contract is legally binding. The only problem, which is solved by a signed, written document, is proving exactly the parties agreed to if they later find themslves with different memories.

Most of us have never met you, so we're not motivated by hearing you are concerned about something. If you want to add other voices to yours it might help if you found out how many crimes they commit, what drugs are they bringing into the country and why don't we stop them, and what welfare costs they are running up.
Or at least pass along where you found this information, the better to share it.

As soon as the plans for the anti-COVID-19 vaccines were released, Nature was publishing a critique from Shibo Jiang that deplored the skimping on animal trials and warned that it might lead to vaccines that did not prevent transmission.

A couple of other exceedingly mainstream med journals were also on the job.

Have you considered that they may not be making their decisions democratically? The answer is so obvious and so openly available -- separate powerful organizations do what they're told by one powerful leader each and those leaders all have the same advisors. How many "powerful tools" are briefed by the same intelligence factory? You want to control a journalist? Be his source.

The Ukrainians are utterly inept. Their "NATO allies" despair trying to train them. They finished last in the European games.

In the event of an attempted war, the Ukrainians would inflict more serious losses on their own feet than on the Russians.

This is not Yeltsin's army.

All republics are "self announced." Did you think there was a licensing office?

In 2014, Ukraine had 6,000 combat-ready soldiers.

Whether it is in better shape than that now is open to question. They have not been trying. They've been urging their tank manufacturers to run three shifts, but that is because they have a good market for their knock-offs in Africa.

If we don't count enlisted men who are better described as "deserters-in-waiting" it is not at all certain that they have more than 6,000 combat-ready.

When was that? I must have been napping.

That going upstairs part is not as easy as you're making it out to be!

Well, there WAS Chechnya, a dirty war if there ever was one. Of course, it was not Putin's war. He inherited it in the late stages when it had morphed from a national protest to the spearhead of the movement for a homeland of Muslim extremists.

Hello, Rip Van Winkle. It has been decades since the first CIA director publicly bragged that he had at least one agent on a newspaper in every city of any size in the country.
