    As if being in g7 has any practical benefits lol.
    The practical merit of that event was never the official outcome, but that the leaders of those countries are able to easily talk to each other in private literally within minutes. In various combinations, if needed. And getitng someone else from another country in on short notice.
    Yes well considering that trump is a russian shill he has a direct line with putin 24/7 and china is not in this whites only club anyway.

    You should post it so we can disparage it

    This forum is better when we have things to disparage other than each other

    No, he just reflexively says whatever he thinks whoever is in front of him wants to hear right now. It means nothing. It might as well be a dog barking at a car that's driving past "it's" garden.

    IIRC the allies used nearly their entire supply of TNT in Berlin to demolish just 2 of those things, after that they took a slower approach

    t was 1947/48, before the British Army blew up the tower complex. The smaller ‘L’ tower was blown up successfully on the first attempt on July 28, 1947. The larger ‘G’ tower required far more effort and explosives than the British engineers had expected. Initially, the G-tower was packed with 25 tons of explosives, and press had gathered to watch the demolition. The explosives were set off at 16:00 hours on August 30; however, when the dust cleared, the G tower still stood. One US journalist is reported to have remarked "Made in Germany".[22] With the third effort, the British spent four months preparing the building for demolition. Over four hundred holes were drilled into the concrete structure, and packed with dynamite. A total of 35 tons of dynamite was used in the third try, which was successful.[4] It was the only tower that was successfully completely blown up, though attempts were made on the others.
    the things are fucking vast, even during the fall of Berlin the Soviets often just bypassed them and afaik Zoo tower was one of the last holdouts for German forces before the breakout attempt/surrender.

    I mostly remember about it because Medal of Honor: Airborne has a somewhat ambitious mission where you parachute onto a tower and fight downwards

    He didn't bother to turn up for the start of this morning's sessions (on gender equality, naturally). Entirely by coincidence the moment he chose to finally turn up was when the press pool photographers had briefly been allowed into the room. He then proceeded to walk at a snail's pace to his chair.

    He's a thirty stone, bald toddler having a tantrum.
