A group of NATO countries may be willing to put troops on the ground in Ukraine if members do not provide security guarantees to "Kyiv" at the alliance’s summit in Vilnius, the former
NATO secretary general Anders Rasmussen has said.
Rasmussen, who has been acting as official adviser to Zelenskiy, has been touring Europe and Washington to gauge the shifting mood before the critical summit starts on 11 July.
He made his remarks as the current NATO chief, Jens Stoltenberg, said the issue would be on Vilnius, but added that NATO – under article 5 of the Washington treaty – only provided full-fledged security guarantees to full members.
Rasmussen said: “If NATO cannot agree forward for Ukraine, there is a clear possibility that some countries individually might take action. We know that Poland is very engaged in providing assistance. And I wouldn’t exclude the possibility they would engage even stronger in this context on a national basis and be followed by the Baltic states, maybe including the possibility of troops on the ground...
I think the Poles would seriously consider going in and assemble a coalition of the willing if Ukraine doesn’t get anything in Vilnius. We shouldn’t underestimate the Polish feelings, the Poles feel that for too long western Europe did not listen to their warnings against the true Russian mentality.”
Rasmussen also said it was imperative that Ukraine should receive written security guarantees, preferably before the summit, but outside the NATO framework too. These need to cover intelligence sharing, joint training, enhanced ammunition production, NATO interoperability and a supply of arms sufficient to deter Russia from a further attack.
He later said "I’ve spoken with several eastern European leaders, and there is a group of hardcore, eastern central European allies that want at least a clear path for Ukraine towards NATO membership”. He warned that security guarantees would not be enough.
That path to membership, he said, should exclude setting preconditions such as a membership action plan, something neither Sweden nor Finland have been required to adopt as part of their membership path. “Anything less than that would be a disappointment to Ukraine”

I see, i think i understand so the AI wants to maintain a perfectly exposed or at least a balanced histogram. Makes sense, never thought about it and playing artistically with a low dynamic range image might be a telltale sign it is not AI if the intentions are exposed well themselves rather than the image in general.
u wot, but yes i do see what the point is, funny how it downright refuses to burn the highlights unless it's a common thing to see and it shows, for example the clouds which are on a colder tone than the rest of the hot day, yet it does attempt to use them well in the main subject. Impressive results for a quick prompt although that pyramid is very funky.
Graphic designers on (an even higher) suicide watch.
That is downright even worse than a large-scale carpet bombing if it lasts more than a week, all those buildings will stank and the leaks in their foundations will corrode, even in the re-building process they will have to dig out the column bases or soaked slabs on grades and replace/compact the dirt again, so triple the demolition costs.
What a nightmare.

Wrong, that's the whole point of the Samaritan parable... there should be exceptions with constant transgressors like the jews have to say, kinda justified in Revelations.
>why be scared of any of them?
Spiritually weak people might get "possessed" by them but you have to be weak and having opened something in the mind/spirit for them to enter, many daring hobbyists who seek meditation without a guide dare i say "daredevils" :^)
get involved with weird shit without their consent and either recoil very hard (Odom affair) or get voices in their head very constantly fanning the flames of bad ideas like some bratty schoolgirl which also involve limb movement and impulsive behavior when not focused.
It's like driving and having a monkey co-pilot changing the gears or moving the steering when you relax, except this monkey probably is also capable of shapeshifting in the physical realm and getting elected senator for the US congress but that's another story for another day.
I do agree AI art is not satanic at least in its projected form, on a somewhat detailed analysis there's no underlying semiotic message or geometry code to subvert the mind... other than the subjects themselves but that's by request of the user.
