  1. You should also provide reasoning for this. There are not many other viable options coming up in the near future. F-35s may become available to Bangladesh after 2030 if we align with the West militarily and politically by then.
  2. The way things are going, Bangladesh might become one of the first third world countries to procure F-35s whenever that might happen (not before 2030). Competing aircraft are nowhere as ready for export. F-35 unit costs can only go down given the huge initial investments made. The US will need to expand the market beyond closest of allies to make good return on investment.
  3. Indians fly their Russian jets way too often. I understand that they need to keep flying to maintain operational readiness but Russian engines are not purpose-built for this. If AESA radar equipped, F-16s or Gripens supported by AEW&C aircraft can wreck havoc on Indian fleet due to their superior servicability.
  4. He probably ran afoul of the massive corruption and mafia racket within RAB which threatened exposure of higher ups. No army officer simply "disappears" for 18 months.
  5. Well, the main purpose of UNFIL is to keep Hezbollah in check, not the IDF. Of course the IDF would not mind. Regardless, I would like Bangladesh to cooperate with Israel extensively in STEM.
  6. We have tried the non-recognition gimmick for 49 years now. How has that helped Palestinians in any meaningful way? Once the far-right, fascist Liqud is out of office we should offer conditional recognition to Israel in exchange for allowing peacekeeping operations and humanitarian aid to Gaza and West Bank and continued negotiations for a two-state solution.
  7. Sanders rescues medical debt-ridden veteran Navy pilot from the verge of suicide. Before: After:
  8. Sanders' race is now against himself. He has to win the majority of delegates nationwide to prevent the convention from entering the second ballot (contested convention). The only reason the 5 establishment hacks are still running is to divide the votes and force the convention into the second ballot in which the undemocratic 500 superdelegates will come into play to steal the nomination.
  9. For the first time in the history of the United States, a primary candidate (Democrat or Republican) wins the popular vote in the first three primaries: Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada. Sanders wins over 50% of delegates in Nevada: @sibghat_99 @avicenna
  10. I am sorry folks but I cannot stand such two-faced hypocrisy. This muppet voted against MLK day: https://thehill.com/homenews/229844-lawmakers-reflect-on-no-votes-on-mlk-day He refused to denounce Trump's racist comment against sitting Congresswomen: https://apnews.com/a10c3e3c0d4f42bda21426047755fa2c Yet he has the gall to lecture us on tolerance? He should learn a thing or two from his fellow Senator Sanders:
  11. A Republiturd complaining about religious persecution is very rich. His own party is the proponent of the Southern Strategy and champions of minority voter suppression and jerrymandering.
  12. Sanders wins backing of top Muslim political group Wa'el Alzayat, CEO of Emgage Action, said Sanders is popular among Muslim voters because of his health care plan, criminal justice proposals and environmental policy. By HOLLY OTTERBEIN 02/20/2020 06:01 AM EST Emgage PAC, which calls itself the biggest Muslim political action committee in the country, is throwing its weight behind Bernie Sanders. The organization, which has chapters and affiliates in 11 states, is the latest in a series of high-profile Muslim groups and elected officials to endorse the Vermont senator. Wa'el Alzayat, CEO of Emgage Action, said Sanders is popular among Muslim voters because of his health care plan, criminal justice proposals and environmental policy. He also noted his international affairs platform and record of supporting Palestinian rights. “More than any other presidential candidate, Sen. Sanders has built a historically inclusive and forward-thinking movement: one that represents America as a set of ideas grounded in the belief that all humans are equal and worthy of a dignified life,” he said. “Our endorsement is intended to galvanize Muslim Americans at the polls to ensure that our voices are heard.” An informal survey of Emgage’s members and email list users found that nearly 75 percent said they support Sanders. Sanders was one of only two 2020 candidates to attend a presidential candidate forum co-hosted by Emgage at the Islamic Society of North America's annual convention. That didn’t go unnoticed by Muslim leaders, who have argued that most of the 2020 contenders have all but neglected them. "From where we’re sitting and what we’ve seen, it doesn’t seem that any major candidate has reached out in the same way,” Alzayat said. Sanders’ relationship with Muslim voters contributed to his upset victory in Michigan in the 2016 presidential primary. This year, Sanders has won the support of Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, the first two Muslim women elected to the House. “It is an honor to receive this endorsement from Emgage Action,” Sanders said in a statement. “While Donald Trump has demonized our Muslim communities, our movement is working to bring Muslims and people of all backgrounds into the political system. Together we will create an economy, justice system and immigration system that are rooted in human rights for all." https://www.politico.com/news/2020/02/20/sanders-wins-backing-of-top-muslim-political-group-116284
