Germany to send Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine.

German news magazine Der Spiegel and others published stories on Tuesday evening saying that the government in Berlin had decided to send Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine.

This follows a long-running debate on the issue among NATO allies, and comes after Poland formally asked Berlin for permission to send some of its Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine earlier on Tuesday.

Spiegel magazine reported that the decision would involve sending at least one company of Leopard 2A6 tanks.

Spiegel attributed its information to government sources but did not identify them. Broadcaster ntv issued a similar report, and the dpa news agency later said its "coalition sources" had said the same. But the government did not immediately comment publicly on the reports.

German-made military equipment can only be sent to third countries with approval from Berlin. Spiegel reported that other European countries, including some in Scandinavia, would also supply their tanks to Kyiv.

Although Germany's Defense Ministry, military, and several other actors would surely have been involved in discussions, ultimately the authority to make this decision rests with Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

We're cruising right into World War III. Long before Putin is 'eliminated' or defeated in Ukraine, tactical nukes will be used.

I understand that Ukraine intends to use the tanks without removing the German markings!

Past motherfuckery of Switzerland from BIS American and European investors in Hitler in WWII resulted in German tanks and planes early on sporting the white Swiss cross of their sponsors. How NASCAR of them. When the climate changed later in the war, the Swiss insisted that they turn the crosses back to the German black center.

Since Ukraine is going full Nazi and running out of soldiers, they will have to start drafting kids and babushkas to man (woman) those tanks.

Our Great Christial Leader says you nuclear warmongers should cool it:

Vladimir Putin has said the threat of a nuclear war was rising, but insisted Russia had not "gone mad" and would not use its nuclear weapons first.

....he asserted that Russia would "under no circumstances" use the weapons first, and would not threaten anyone with its nuclear arsenal.

"We have not gone mad, we are aware of what nuclear weapons are," he said, adding: "We aren't about to run around the world brandishing this weapon like a razor.

The life expectancy of a tank in battle is less than ten minutes.

Historically, when you get out of the trenches battles happen quick. When two maneuvering armies clash it's usually the one that gets there "the firstest with the mostest" that wins the battle, which is often short, brutal, and deadly for the last or the least.

What are they going to do with these panzers? Do they plan on blitzkrieging through the Donbass until they have reclaimed Crimea?

Like Oscar Schindler said to his wife in the dramatized depiction of life during the war.

“There's no way I could have known this before, but there was always something missing. In every business I tried, I can see now it wasn't me that had failed. Something was missing. Even if I'd known what it was, there's nothing I could have done about it, because you can't create this thing. And it makes all the difference in the world between success and failure.

Emilie: Luck.

Schindler: War.”

I'm starting to think so.

I've never heard of a war a year long without any description of how the war is actually going. I know I bore you all with this, but I think it's a key thing.

We knew about Blitzkreig in 1939 and about Jungle Guerilla warfare in 1966. In the age before the internet, satellite transmissions... yet now everybody has a smart phone...

As for money laundering:

Backflip: U.S. Now Set to Approve Abrams Main Battle Tanks for Ukraine

The White House is set to approve sending advanced M1 Abrams main battle tanks to Ukraine, U.S. officials said Tuesday, reversing a months-long policy of resisting the repeated calls of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for the same.

Which is considered the baddest ass tank?

The value of tanks is dubious in today's battlefield. There isn't any machine-gun nest or tightly packed infantry for tanks to over-run. Tanks can be easily taken out from above by drones and from the sides by ATGM's (or even old fashioned RPG's against the treads). A dozen or two tanks are not going to be able to do much against dispersed infantry that have good to decent anti-tank weapons.

It's about inventory turnover and new inventory build. Old Russian weaponry gets sent by former Soviet client states to Ukraine, to be replaced by NATO (especially US) countries' weaponry. US sends weapons to Ukraine to be replaced by newer US weapons. Ka-ching rings the military industrial complex cash registers.
27   cisTits   2023 Jan 25, 11:23am  

It's all BS.

These tanks can't be repaired in Ukraine or even serviced. They will have to be shipped back to Poland or Slovakia to do all that.

Also, Ukey Nazis don't know how to operate them. For one, these tanks don't have autoloader like the modern Russian ones do that Ukey Nazis are familiar with.

And last, there aren't many Ukey Nazis left to fight anyway.

Sure you have. Did you even realize we were at war with Afghanistan in 2012? There was no news on the subject. We are still in a state of war with Syria - did you know that?

None of the wars seem to be fought with the intentional of actually winning them. We aren't even given goals. We are bombing Yemen and Somalia right now - to what extent I do not know, but I know we are. Our media doesn't even bother to inform us which wars we are fighting anymore.

Ukraine is actually largely in the background, and although technically we are not in that war, I would bet we are with "advisors". People simply have no idea what is going on, and even if you make good attempts to understand it, it's extremely difficult. I can sometimes discern why we are at war, but its only guesses. We are PROBABLY at war in Syria for Israel's benefit and some oil interests there. Syria really doesn't have a ton of oil but they have some. At the end of the Iraq War, about 75% of their energy exports went straight to Israel.

Most of these wars have energy as part of the reason, but not always for the United States. We're run by madmen and honestly, most government employees have no idea what is going on. They just "do their job". Look at how little Fauci, for example, cares about public health. He is the one that got AZT approved for AIDs, that's a chemotherapy drug, it killed people. He did that in the 1980's, no consequences. It was a pointless drug, the drugs that worked are protease inhibitors. People in charge just take charge, they don't care if they actually are fixing a problem, just that they appear to be working on it. They are completely unconcerned with the results. This is true for all levels of government. Intelligence agencies don't care that they lie, or convict innocent people, they don't care about corruption, they create narratives, they don't care if people believe them. Same for doctors, military experts, think tanks - all of them.

We're in a mad world.

Yep, on top of that most of mainstream media mostly focuses on what's happening inside the country. Outside politics gets a small mention at best. Hence why you can go days and days without any popular outlet reporting on Ukraine situation

Truth be told, I've pretty much put corporate media on ignore for the last 25 years for the most part. They'll jump on the opportunity to talk about anything other than something that is somewhat relevant to my existence. So many stories go unreported.

I remember when Hunter Biden got a job at Burisma in 2014. I thought "aha! They HAVE to report on this" - nope, single line mentioned than forgotten. I didn't even know he was a crack addict at the time.

Actually that's about right for a T-34 in WW2.

But that's at least partially because they never or rarely bothered to fix them.

Already the case for at least some of their existing tanks They are going to lots of places for repair. Add Bulgaria to your list, but I'm sure that there are more.
34   casandra   2023 Jan 26, 12:38pm  

Only stooges would want to operate these tanks. They will be highly sought after prizes for the Russian military.

and

Aren't tanks old technology. I remember watching how the US destroyed them in Iraq like children playing video games.
