Internet connectivity and cellular service was disrupted for hours on Monday

I've been wondering if the new Starlink network is going to make some of these attempts at controlling the internet futile when the laser inter-satellite links are perfected. I don't think they'd take a chance of angering a big, potentially violent player like China or Russia, but would they care if some tinpot got his knickers in a knot at them?

Yes, but signing up and paying for Starlink from one of these countries will be difficult. And having a visible starlink dish might putting a target on your back.

If the last two years have taught me anything, it's that Americans aren't the best when it comes to sheltering in place.

I'm confident there's a clause in the user agreement puts the responsibility of injury in the event of coup on the end-user.

That's an easy one

What's with the "apparent" coup?
This isn't the first time I read something like that said or implied.
Is it a coup or not??

Perhaps it's Shrodinger's Coup - 
It's both a Coup and Not a Coup until the media decides whether it succeeded, and whether their offices will be targeted if they report it as one...

Because the general hasn't said "this is a coup", so he could sue them for slander if they said it was a coup and it wasn't.

Sudan?   pffft.    I commute through the east side of Youngstown, Ohio twice each day.   I am always aware of my current surroundings.

It's also generally good life advice.

I see soldiers, armored personal carriers, barbed wire, Al-47s, and berets.

I hear women weeping, soldiers yelling, gunfire, and the screams of the innocent.

I feel a boot on my neck, asphalt on my face, and the sting of tear gas.

I smell dead bodies and burning houses.

I taste blood in my moth.
