Lolz.
Yeah...it seems I read it wrong, wrote it worse, and upon further investigation I confused production with reserves, or deposits, or whatever. It pretty much puts me out of the lithium game forever, doesn't it??

I shall latch my cilice a notch tighter as punishment.

Tensions are building between Greece and Turkey. It looks like both countries have got their navies out after Turkey sent some scientific vessels into Greek waters.

Massive US troop movements, leaving Germany to redeploy in Poland.....could have a maximum of 20 thousand. I wonder why?
I know our own troops have been leaving Germany, just look at all the new housing being built in Wiltshire to house them. This move to Poland shouts of something else to me.

12,000 US troops out of Germany with 5600 to remain in Europe. The rest are being returned to the US.

^^ Thats what they said, then added, with the potential to have 20,000 in Poland - watch this space.

The other thing about Belarus is the fact that with all the marches going on, not a single person I have seen is keeping distance or wearing a mask.
Lets see how that works out.

Foreshadowing Russia's next move I presume. No body gets involved in the Ukraine thing so Russia can do what they want.

Germany is not meeting it's commitments on defense spending in regards to NATO.
The US is re-posting a number of troops currently stationed in Germany to countries like Belgium, Italy, etc. - in other words countries that are still fulfilling their commitments.
Approx. half the US troops being moved will return to the US, half will remain in Europe.

No. Our troops have been there since 1945-ish. It's time to go home now....the invasion is over, finished, cancelled, kaput.

The real question is when did Poland invade Britain?
Sometime between 1990 and 2008 or so, to hazard a guess.

I was entirely joking with that, I think that was fairly evident.
