Is there any reason to prefer a less reliable source then to quote similar statements directly from Mearsheimer's verifiable published works? Not being able to verify a quote to a WP:RS, is not really a good reason to include it. I have started a discussion on Talk - I am generally in favor of improving the sources in this article. I don't know how other editors will feel about it. Mearsheimer is certainly a specialist/expert, but as you may know, other editors may question publishers that appear biased, and demand to include their own biased sources to balance - you may want to leave a note on talk about your decision and we can discuss it.

Ali Khamenei - copyright violations[edit]

Hi. A user removed several sourced paragraphs in the article about ayatollah Kahemeni because of copyright problems. I rewrote the content in different words in order for an extended confirmed user to restore it. Please, would you mind taking care of it?

Maps of Rwanda showing the communes[edit]


Run into you before, to the best of my knowledge, you have my apologies for my being abrupt, you will find, obviously that I am correct. Darkness Shines (talk) 23:10, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

For all I know you may be an objective editor, but you totally lack a cooperative spirit. That is a problem. Uglemat (talk) 23:14, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

DYK for Peter D'Aguiar[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 9 March 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Peter D'Aguiar, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the founder of Banks Beer, Peter D'Aguiar, was also a prominent Guyanese politician? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Peter D'Aguiar. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Peter D'Aguiar), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Thor Sm 75[edit]

Using wikipedia is completely new to me.

I were a "Missile System Analyst" at RAF Hemswell. I knew the Inertial Guidance System vey well. It had no radio link. POSSIBLY this may have been a feature added much later when it became part of the Satellite launch kit.--Michael Calan (talk) 21:11, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

Welcome, Michael Calan! I undid the edit just because the sentence broke; if you had removed "Bell Labs" as well I probably would not have done it. I recommend that you leave an edit summary to communicate with other editors. In this particular instance, you could simply write that the information is wrong. Thanks for editing!
