Congrats. You had a preconceived opinion and confirmed it by finding some other people who agree with you. Good science. Also, much better journalism
than I was ever capable of.
Sources should not be needed for things that are obvious.
Claim 1. It has just been announced that CIA and other officials believe Russian hackers influenced the 2016 election results, and an official recount
of state polling data has begun across the nation. Source: Every major news outlet as of 9 o'clock last night.
Claim two: White House has announced sending soldiers into Syria despite Russia's stance against U.S. involvement. Again: Every major news outlet as
of 9 p.m. last night.
Here's a new piece of the puzzle, actually. A shipment of 50 new F35 stealth bombers has just been purchased by the state of Israel, and the shipment
is allegedly en route. Source: CNN, MSNBC.
Let me ask you clever naysayers something.
What exactly do you think you're debunking here?
Seems guy one is pissed off because I made another post a couple years ago, and the other is pissed because he feels he shouldn't be forced to Google
and read the actual news and decide for himself whether I'm wrong or right about WW3.
How dare some guy who used to work at a pizza place have an opinion and submit it for other people to consider.
Oh, and lastly, I am quite sorry for saying "Them's the brakes." As a super important journalist who never uses colloquialisms and whos editor lives
with him 24-7 to revise any internet posts, I'm sorry you were subjected to that wildly unprofessional behavior.
You have found the smoking gun. We will publish a front page correction in tomorrow's issue.
No, but seriously, you seem to have an unreasonably high opinion of the people who actually gather the news.
How do you think reporters live, anyway? Do you think we run off of nuclear power, slick our hair with Gorilla Glue and have cybernetic implants that
allow them to know just how to speak on the internet to convince you they're reporters?
Friend, even the people running this world are not much smarter than we are. It's a scary thought, I know, but also an important thing to realize.
Furthermore, the old dynamic of ATS used to be: We watch what's going on in the world, and bring it here to connect all the dots.
I've noticed a lot of users complaining that the quality of ATS has gone down in recent years, and while I don't mean to launch a personal attack I
have to say, maybe attitudes like this are a significant contributing factor.
I make a prediction based on known data, and here some of you are, attacking every possible aspect of the OP except the actual prediction, because
you're so focused on your righteous duty of putting a former fast food worker in his place.
And we wonder why wars keep happening. Heck, people on ATS can't even set aside their egos long enough to discuss a prediction without resorting to ad
