As I watch the most recent Chinese spy scandal as well as our charming idea to shoot a broken satellite out of the sky for "maintenance", as well as looking at our misadventures in the middle east and the resulting overreach of our land forces, I get to thinking about scary apocalyptic showdowns.
If China reasserted its control over Taiwan in a big way, I'm talking about an air campaign followed by a naval invasion, do you think the US would issue rhetoric, engage in a trade embargo or at least raise huge tariffs, or actually defend Taiwan?
Personally, I am sad to say that aside from deploying a fleet to the area and issuing rather harsh rhetoric, not much would happen.

I found St Johns Code but not their law school code, whereas for Suffolk I found both the University and the LS. Is the data just missing or should I just play it fast and loose and just use the universities code.
So, my landlord is claiming that a clog deep in my apartments house is caused by hair from our apartment plus my use of draino on a slow draining bathtub caused damages, thus is neglect on my part and that we are responsible for $150 in plumbing costs. I live in NYC. However:
LANDLORDS' DUTY OF REPAIR
Landlords of buildings with three or more apartments must keep the apartments and the buildings' public areas in "good repair" and clean and free of vermin, garbage or other offensive material. Landlords are required to maintain electrical, plumbing, sanitary, heating, ventilating systems and appliances landlords install, such as refrigerators and stoves in good and safe working order. Tenants should bring complaints to the attention of their local housing officials. (Multiple Dwelling Law (MDL) §78 and §80; Multiple Residence Law (MRL) §174. The MDL applies to cities with a population of 325,000 or more and the MRL applies to cities with less than 325,000 and to all towns and villages.)
This doesnt say anything about fault, but my lease says that I am responsible for repairs resultant from my "acts or neglect". I dont think that seeing your tub draining slow for two days and then using draino constitutes neglect, or that my lease would supersede NYS law, but I was wondering what you guyesesses opinion is.

I want to know if its worth membership.
Ive been trolling LSN app updates, and it seems everyone gets into a school that makes them happy or satisfied, does anyone know any really good sob stories on LSN. Like profiles where they applied everywhere with reasonable scores and were roundly rejected?
It should be noted that I'm a Mass Resident, and Princeton Review states that Mass residents are treated as instate due to the lack of public law school.
that being said, is it worth an application with my #s. Thanks for the semi educated answers
