The ECI codename for AT&T is "FAIRVIEW" and also US-990, but pay attention to the US-990 SIGAD code and it tends to indicate when a code and alias was initiated.

* funkenstein is now known as funkenstein_ [15:56]
trinque whether it's possible to solve that problme from the position of "US president" is questionable [15:56]
mats ISIS is an existential threat at this point in time [15:56]
trinque bullshit [15:56]
trinque they can knock down a few buildings at best [15:56]
mats if the caliphate is established, they'll have materialized as a real threat [15:57]
trinque if, sure [15:57]
* ColinT ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [15:57]
punkman established how? [15:57]
trinque but what about pakistani nukes, what about etc etc [15:57]
* assbot gives voice to funkenstein_ [15:57]
mats ie, control of baghdad and damascus [15:58]
trinque the thing is, this has never been total war between the USA and Middle East [15:58]
trinque it's been trying to manipulate countries into this or that state with the military [15:59]
trinque if something poses an "existential" threat to the USA, what do you think will happen? [15:59]
trinque assuming sure, said USA is aware enough to see it [15:59]
trinque why didn't the chechens take over even after the USSR fell? [16:00]
trinque seems about the same size [16:00]

funkenstein_ the "president" tv show seems mostly produced for foreign consumption, kinda like friends or baywatch [16:00]
mats USG will attempt to parlay another group into battle against ISIS [16:01]
trinque were I an ISIS, I would look for a large ally that was not the USA [16:01]
mats e.g. the kurds, shia [16:01]
trinque at that point I could believe that they're an actual threat, in that not they, but the actual other superpower, is a threat [16:01]
trinque no, larger [16:02]
punkman mats, aren't they already battling? [16:02]
mats yes. [16:02]
trinque or "wake me up when" they strike a deal with Russia [16:02]
funkenstein_ forbes piece is nice in admitting the 1st priority of a university: real estate developer [16:02]
punkman funkenstein_: and they even have an antique car museum [16:03]
mats ISIS doesn't benefit from the allegiance of any nation state, and nor do i expect any to give it [16:03]
trinque mats: some kind of "muslim unity" thing against the USA could very well happen [16:03]
trinque I really don't understand this thinking, tbh [16:03]
mats their influence and wealth is transnational [16:03]
trinque and what of ICBMs [16:03]
trinque and all the rest [16:04]
trinque the USA has done total war before, even if it's been a while [16:04]
trinque let us panic about our demise a bit and see what ideas are palatable [16:04]
* ColinT has quit (Quit: Leaving...) [16:04]
funkenstein_ lol, yeah look at that 250 cars [16:04]
mats USG cannot afford total war, and they do not have the stomach for it, either [16:04]
lobbes ^ [16:05]
trinque the us military will be the last light shut off, not the first [16:05]
mats ISIS merely needs USG to stfu, not die, to succeed [16:05]
trinque I don't buy any of that [16:05]
mats it'll die on its own [16:05]
trinque we have the stomach for the whole 20th century [16:05]
trinque die like Russia did I suppose [16:05]
trinque we'll lose ground but there's a vast difference there [16:06]
trinque and mind I'm not particularly thrilled at the thought [16:06]
trinque I would really like to understand this logic by which the entire US military vanishes, rather than at worst being handed down as an heirloom [16:08]
mats we'll see how committed NATO is to fighting ISIS when PMCs fail to take Mosul and a few F-16s get smoked [16:08]
trinque not what I was discussing, at least [16:09]
trinque whether or not ISIS controls Iraq is not the same question as whether they can destroy the United States [16:10]
funkenstein_ trinque, one possibility: if no more paycheck people will just walk away, sell off the gear [16:11]
trinque am I wrong in understanding that there is still a considerable Russian military? [16:11]

trinque if there is not a single man inside the us military who can figure out something to do with even fragments of the thing, wtf? [16:15]
mats given enough time, US generals will sell off parts just like SU did. [16:16]
trinque so russia's military is gone [16:16]

trinque usm? not at all [16:17]
funkenstein_ trinque, it has always been my assumption that such folks a) have the gold b) move the drugs c) controls m0 presses [16:17]

mats usm, usg, and usd are liver, kidney, heart [16:17]
mats well, kidneys. [16:17]
trinque when in history did a vast military power not fragment into many pieces, and instead dissolve completely, leaving no trace? [16:18]
ascii_field 'no trace' is a tall order [16:18]

mircea_popescu we'll lose ground but there's a vast difference there << nobody has any incentive whatsoever to be "american". it's not even vaguely an identity. you might wish to be texan, maybe, liek some soviets wished to be russian. but otherwiose, being an iowan or a californian or a wisconsinian or generally an american is the epitome of fair weather friends : for as long as it pays to do so and no longer. [20:37]
mats yeah seriously. the army, for instance, is being whittled down to nothing, which has been in the works since rumsfeld/bush [20:37]
mircea_popescu I would really like to understand this logic by which the entire US military vanishes << the "entrie us military" long ago vanished. it now consists of boys playing video games and girls playing the tomboy. that is not an army, it's a psycho patient support group. [20:38]
mircea_popescu in no way different than any other mental healthcare hospital, except it's larger and per-patient cheaper [20:38]
mats idea goes: we fight moar proxy wars and don't need so much line infantry, so we'll employ doorkickers and hire out to palantir and academi for the rest [20:38]

mircea_popescu much like the third reich military had no debts owed to weimar and generally was hitler's creation. [20:44]
mircea_popescu the future where russian military was like present day german military seemed the likelier eventuality in 1990. [20:44]

asciilifeform nothing, that is, but open mouths. so you - close them. [20:48]
mircea_popescu militaries require competent leadership. when i say existential threat, i do not mean ISIS will march on DC << it doesn't want or need to march in dc. all it conceivably might want is to pull a rotherham over at vassar. [20:48]

mircea_popescu what do you think a military is, some sort of a country club ? it exists to obey orders. the orders atm are on the line of "scoring officers' sensitivity to inane nontopics" [20:49]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform mexicans are kinda lazy methinks. the arabs are more serious when they do it. [20:49]
mircea_popescu and I would expect a military dictatorship period directly following the fall of usg << IF you can find a certain corporal in the army that will get badly defeated and who resents the coupla decades of peace which consist mostly of american teenagers being used as public toilets from rashapur to ankara, then yes, maybe, dictatorship. [20:51]
mircea_popescu that's a big if, tho. [20:51]

mircea_popescu but the notion the usian will put up any sort of resistence, to any sort of invader, ofany kind come from anywhere... [20:55]
mircea_popescu yeah, he would. like the woman puts up resistence. with her uterus. [20:55]
asciilifeform didn't we earlier 'there is no american' ? [20:56]
mircea_popescu whole fuckthing wouldnt' work too well if you just fell in. [20:56]

mircea_popescu merely because the ww2 cost the us less than it cost europe does not mean it wasn't costly. [20:59]
