The RAND report makes sense as an analysis from the point of view of USA interest. My country has its own point of view of interest, convergent with USA but taken further. The US has a history of throwing its "friends" under the bus when its in their interest. The UK in Suez & BREXIT,...

I think its unlikely the US would just capitulate. The only circumstances maybe if Russia stopped at the Donbas, abandoned its policy of seeking a multi-polar world, agreed not to undermine US power in anyway, allied against China and Putin left office...maybe There`s a lot of rubbish and rumours fl...

I agree that it is morally wrong to identify as something you are not be it autistic or black etc. There is nothing questionable about it, it is just bad. Autistics have enough stigmas we have to deal with. Those non-autistics identifying as autistic and faking autism just add more stigmas and ster...

Not sure how fighter jets can be delivered.

Unlike tanks they require proper airfields and bases which of course are under Russian missile attack.

If they use Polish or western airfields the act of bombing forces from your own country is an act of war in everyone’s book

Until A u t i s m S p e c t r u m d i f f e r e n c e s can be reliably diagnosed with more precision I think it important to not over-generalize. Some o n t h e S p e c t r u m get along just fine. They might be "different" but they are educated and have good jobs. And some marry. Some h...

There`s already plenty of genocide for autistic people at the moment, have you ever checked out the life expectancy of being autistic.[/quote I posted articles about our short our shortened life expectancy. That is not a result of a plan to eliminate us being carried out so it is not genocide. Meta...

With exception to autism caused by possible denovo mutations unfortunately natural eugenics already exists. Very few autistic men go on to have children so their genes are not passed on In the future whole genome sequencing will be very cheap. You can already get one done by Dante labs for around $3...

Aborting fetuses based on expected genetic outcome is eugenics. I don’t think it will be a Nazi repeat or government mandate. Like with Down’s Syndrome now it would be a choice of the mother. That is why it is called “Consumer Eugenics”. It is questionable that this will happen in Autism or particu...

A similar thing was mentioned by Mona on a previous article however such arguments make little logic. These are scientists that research brain disorders and genetic science. They went to university for many years passed lots of exams to do what they do So they are not responsible for free train pas...

The main issue as ever is people trying to speak above and impose their views on others who don’t accept those views. For a start why are ND advocates at an autism scientific conference researching potential treatments? Many proudly proclaim their autism is not a problem to be fixed, they don’t wan...

Yet the hostility in autism research is not only aimed at non-autistic researchers. Botha, who has also considered leaving the field, said there have been “quite a few” autistic graduate students, research associates and Ph.D. colleagues who have walked away from their academic dreams because they ...

Sad this type of thing is going on, the only people being hurt are autistic people, especially the most disabled and without a voice. The only way i think this will ever be resolved is to retire the word "autism" or "ASD" and have separate categories based on type of disability a...

To add to my last comments, you cant be legally disabled without having an official medical disorder. You cant get disability welfare or a blue disabled badge for a car in the UK without doctors / medical evidence. I cant just demand a carer to do my shopping for me because i cant be bothered to wa...
