    The US has 50 warheads stored in Turkey for them. Pretty close ally which is being reported as a potential reason Trump doesn't want to support one of their enemies now that ISIS is in check.

    Just amazing that this wasn't bigger news.
    I thought there would be massive uproar when Russia shot down MH17 too. This stuff doesn't really land any more. I think people are only ever up to 95% certain in the news nowadays, and don't think that's enough to support any kind of confrontational policy.

    Hold on, didn't that lead to Russia being booted from the G7 and some sanctions? Infinitely more compared to this, and I do think that at least soured a lot of people on Russia in general because no one wants to be turned into mince meat at 30000ft.

    it does make for an amusing flight path when your plane passes through armenia then dives south for turkish airspace to avoid the black sea.

    Connecting through Doha few months back made for some interesting flight paths, what with having to avoid UAE and Saudi airspace and all.

    I realise this happened two years ago, but I just saw this funny headline: "Man arrested in possession of original Dayton Agreement". Imagine trying to explain that away.

    I'm sure Google will use this new breakthrough for things which arent at all nefarious.

    Any nefarious thing Google has done was probably done already at least 5 years ago by DARPA and the NSA. Almost every single known actual practical use of quantum computers is variations on "factorising massive quasi-prime numbers really quickly".

    In general I still basically assume that "any really dangerous technology that's known to the public public was probably already achieved by DARPA or maaaaybe Skunk Works years ago". It's been true for like 50 years.
