Not all arms embargoes are created equal.

The Houtis seem to be effectively cut off. The Gaza strip is cut off by land sea and air. Rhodesia was cut off by the RN bringing it to its knees, so it is just a matter of time before the Libyan embargo shows results. And pigs fly of course.
Hafta has just bombed a sanction breaking arms running ship as it arrived at the docks and sunk it. Governments Worldwide are waiting in line to thank him. Pass the pipe.

Long term offenders show strikingly different brain structure.

Interesting article. I am hardly surprised that there is an evolutionary survival angle on predatory behavior. I am speculating that differences in brain structure for highly altruistic people might also show differences and somehow be linked to an evolutionary advantage. The sample size is small, relying on the data of just 672 individuals but the research has been posted in the 'Lancet' so has probably been peer reviewed.

In a dystopian World I envisage job applicants bringing MRI scans along with their CV. Come to think of it some places in the World are already at that stage, almost. China comes to mind - for now.

Xi Ji ping is being blamed for a supposed leak at Wuhan P4 biological weapon center.

If you want to read the tea leaves there is an internal war going on in China to oust Xi Ji Ping. In recent days there has been much posted on line that has not been censored, which is unusual but the big one is people are submitting posts and even articles saying that something is terribly wrong at the Wuhan P4 biological facility. In a police state that is simply reckless. Zerohedge published the name (and telephone number) of the scientist hired last September to work on latent coronavirus in bats and WAPO published another one so that is common knowledge, the interesting thing is the Chinese article is still on line, detailing the facility and challenging the official cause of the outbreak.

To Xi Ji Pings enemies it does not matter if the coronavirus was released from the Wuhan lab or not, it is useful ammunition to challenge the new "Emperor".

Wapo has reported that possible counter rumors have been placed on line by the Chinese government blaming the US for releasing the virus.

A footnote. SARS has escaped from Beijing labs (corrected) repeatedly according to Nature. OK, that is confidence building.

Britain Quietly Becomes a Police State

23 December 2019 - 11:41 PM

In case you missed is Britain quietly became a police state. A panel of 5 judges have confirmed that MI5 (MI6) officers and informants may KILL if it is the national interest. This is along the lines of a secret "Third Directive"

Here is one tag. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-50870307

The ruling by the Investigatory Powers Tribunal (IPT) last week represents a formalizing of secret British government policy of affording its internal security service unlimited powers and immunity from prosecution in the execution of activities.

The policy was legally contested by four British human rights groups, calling on the IPT to ban such powers.
However, the tribunal of five judges concluded it was lawful for MI5 agents to be permitted to commit crimes if, by doing so, they were acting in the public interest or national interest!

That is a pretty sweeping power. Informants can kill too.
