I think a lot of it learned and there also some sort of training effect.Disagree. A lot of the stuff you’re talking about becomes second nature.
Does Mazda still do any offers for members purchasing a new car? Haven’t seen anything for a while but looking to buy something in the coming months. Cheers
A wider war is very unlikely, for a host of different reasons I listed before, most of which come back to the two main participants being unable to afford a war.
-Iran is suffering from mass internal protests and political repression. Tehran is under huge fuel and economic strain atm. Russian and Chinese support is nowhere near assured.
-USA, political suicide, economically disastrous for the national debt and militarily draining against a determined enemy. Geostrategically, any ground invasion would further destabilise the ME.

- The U.S. military attempted to kill a senior Iranian military official in Yemen on the same day a drone strike killed Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani.
- The plan shows that the White House had a broader aim in mind than was previously known: stopping Iran from carrying out proxy wars in other countries.
Trump said on Friday that a senior Iranian general killed by a U.S. drone strike had been planning attacks on four U.S. embassies, a claim made to justify the decision but that was at odds with intelligence assessments from senior officials in Trump’s administration.
I can reveal that I believe it probably would’ve been four embassies,” Trump said.
But a senior administration official and a senior defense official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss classified information, said they were only aware of vague intelligence about a plot against the embassy in Baghdad and that the information did not suggest a fully formed plot. Neither official said there were threats against multiple embassies.
The senior administration official said that Trump has been fixated on not allowing an attack on a U.S. diplomatic facility, out of fear of being compared unfavorably to his predecessor.
Trump is “totally obsessed with not letting something like Benghazi happen to him,” the official said, referring to the 2012 attack on a U.S. facility in Libya that has achieved totemic status among Trump allies, who see it as evidence of former president Barack Obama’s alleged weakness in the face of terrorism.
The embassy in Baghdad did not receive an alert commensurate to the threat Trump described, said a person familiar with the situation, who was not authorized to comment publicly. When the U.S. government has specific information about threats to embassies, warnings or alerts are often sent to embassy personnel to be vigilant.
