Some men will pin Playboy magazine posters to the walls and some with portraits of Einstein :-)

is there ever an end to the weapon race, and conditional on that the world survive such as nuclear period is there a chance the end stage will stopp all big wars or be the end of the world?

So lasers weapons really seem to start to get practical, this in future could likely stop all incoming conventional rockets etc. The problem is lasers also can be used for attack, when moving at speed of light there is no pre-warning (?), or is there any chance at all for energy shields domes in far fetched future?

a simpler solution; each country should only allow leaders that had to send their own children to the front first, and themselves had to duell one to one with tops of other country.

In the worst outcome of your reform, I'd rather not imagine what kind of people would become leaders :-(

Is anyone thinking that now is the perfect time for NATO to conduct a “special military operation” in Russia?

Perhaps the stupid question of the day is whether there is (or should be) any fundamental difference in how Osama bin Laden was treated and how that other guy deserves to be? On a related note, some news sources this week claimed that VP himself definitely wanted to be physically present at the next G20 meeting. This is admittedly 7 months out in time, but to be held in Indonesia, which is a long way from home.

In Inglorius Basterds II, a MiG-29 is "accidently" left unattended (and fully fueled) on a Polish runway, where it is stolen by a Ukrainian pilot. He flies it to Moscow, has been tipped off by unnamed sources to Putin's location, and takes him out.
