By the way. I have noticed some of you who barely mentioned the train wreck except to downplay it, have been VERY vocal in support of Ukraine. What does that say about your priorities?

It says they get virtue signaling points for backing ukraine and none for the ohio disaster

I think it says they've been duped by propaganda. Especially effective propaganda because it plays on their nationalism, and hatred of Russia, which as they point out, they have good reasons for. But I don't know a single patnetter who's ever virtue signaled. We're way too based for that.

How it was:

“Violence is not my weapon,” he said.

So shortly after Russia invaded Ukraine in late February and Ukraine prohibited men of military age from leaving the country, Klever sneaked out to London.

Klever’s mistake, which would bring devastating consequences, was writing to a friend about being smuggled out and making it to London.

The friend betrayed his trust and posted their conversation on social media. It went viral, and Ukrainians all over the internet exploded with anger and resentment.

“You are a walking dead person,” one Twitter message said. “I’m going to find you in any corner in the world.”

The notion of people — especially men — leaving war-torn Ukraine for safe and comfortable lives abroad has provoked a moral dilemma among Ukrainians that turns on one of the most elemental decisions humans can make: fight or flee.

Thousands of Ukrainian men of military age have left the country to avoid participating in the war, according to records from regional law enforcement officials and interviews with people inside and outside Ukraine. Smuggling rings in Moldova, and possibly other European countries, have been doing a brisk business. Some people have paid up to $15,000 for a secret nighttime ride out of Ukraine, Moldovan officials said.

The draft dodgers are the vast exception. That makes it all the more complicated for them — morally, socially and practically. Ukrainian society has been mobilised for war against a much bigger enemy, and countless Ukrainians without military experience have volunteered for the fight. To maximise its forces, the Ukrainian government has taken the extreme step of prohibiting men aged 18 to 60 from leaving, with few exceptions.

https://bdnews24.com/society/ukraines-draft-dodgers-face-guilt-shame-and-reproach (reprinted from NYT)

How it's going:

According to recent reports, Ukraine has recently begun experiencing some military recruitment issues, a problem that has plagued Russia since the start of its war in Ukraine.

On Wednesday, Ukraine's Security Service (SBU) announced it had blocked 26 Telegram channels that were allegedly helping people of military age avoid mobilization. The news came following a February 26 report The Economist that said, "Ukraine has visibly stepped up mobilization activities in the first two months of this year."

The Economist further detailed that mobilization in Ukraine has become increasingly aggressive with reports of draft notices being issued at military funerals and officials patrolling ski resorts for people avoiding enlistment summons.

More:

In a country like Ukraine there are inevitably less-than-legal ways to escape the call-up, too. “It’s a dialectic of nature,” says Colonel Kevlyuk, who worked in the army’s general staff until 2021. “Wherever there is demand, you’ll always find someone to supply it.” Some arrange fictitious marriages with mothers of three or more children. Others get corrupt military doctors to issue a medical exemption For a few thousand dollars one can pay to be smuggled across the border. But the appetite for risk is falling after a series of well-publicised draft-dodging prosecutions.
Government officials say that any excesses are being tackled as they come to light. But with the army set on achieving a breakthrough on the battlefield before the summer, the recruitment of less-motivated Ukrainians will surely be stepped up and scandals will probably persist. The armed forces may respond to legal challenges by sharpening up their bureaucracy, but there are other ways to deal with them. Informed sources say that at least two lawyers disputing draft orders have abruptly been called up themselves. As the army well knows, mobilised lawyers are automatically barred from practising.

cisTits says


Meanwhile, the Russians executed a substantial mobilization which has added upwards of 400,000 thousand effectives to their forces. Contrary to almost-universal predictions that Russian armaments would have long-since been exhausted, and their economy crumbled under the weight of western sanctions, neither has occurred.

The problem with the initial invasion is that the pro segment of the army was material rich but infantry poor, though well trained, but had no follow on forces to keep the areas they swept through clear and stop defeated elements of the AFU from regrouping. Then, because it was kept secret, there was no logistical prep to resupply the Russian advance AND the swept through areas were reoccupied by AFU elements since there was nothing to "Hold" the roads open.

As usual, after a year or two the Russians will get their shit together, in pretty much every single war Russia ever fought, and then it's a whole new ballgame. Russia always sucks in the first few innings or the first quarter of the game.

Then before you know it, Cossacks are inspiring the Kan Kan in Paris.

In the war which ended with Cossacks in Paris their opponent was fighting on multiple fronts. In the other war where they "got their shit together later" everybody loves to mention not only their opponent was fighting on multiple fronts but also decisive amounts of armaments, materiel and other supplies was handed to them by the allies (read USA). And in the war between these two thir opponent was also fighting on multiple fronts but they managed to completely collapse first as an army and then as a country. Oh, and in the smallish war before that one they had their ass handed to them both on land and on the sea (this is when their previous loss of a flagship happened, btw) by an "inferior" adversary supported by the West.

Which one of the scenarios are most similar to today's war?

The one mentioned the last checks most marks, imo: the opponent is not fighting on multiple fronts, the flagship is already lost and the Western support is there (albeit too little and too late).
165   AmericanKulak   2023 Mar 12, 1:07pm  

No, almost every war. Multiple wars against Poland-Lithuania, Sweden, the Turks. Even the Winter War in Finland.

The battle of Poltava had the Swedes' rampaging through Poland-Lithuania and all over Russia and then Peter I got the Russian Army's shit together and broke Sweden's Great Power status forever. At the Battle of Narva a year earlier, the Swedes clobbered a Russian siege relief force 4x it's size.

Eventually the Russians get their shit together and the vastness of their resources and manpower come into play. Without a huge commitment of foreign troops in Ukraine, it's over and at the very least Russia keeps/takes Donbas and Crimea.

Putin tried to pull a Georgia in Ukraine using only the modernized faction of Russian Army units, but they didn't have the manpower to hold territory and had to withdraw for their inadequate supply lines. Once the additional troops are commited, it's game over for Ukraine, barring NATO intervention.

Putin points fingers at the US once again over Nord Stream sabotage

Moscow, Russia - Russian President Vladimir Putin has dismissed reports of possible Ukrainian involvement in the blasts that destroyed the Nord Stream Baltic gas pipelines in September as "total nonsense."

Such an action at this depth and on this scale could be carried out "only by specialists," Putin said in a television interview broadcast on Tuesday. "This also still requires the support of a state that has the appropriate technology."

Trump was the first POTUS in many years NOT to start a new war. He resisted the Neo-Cons attempt to invade Syria and Iran. IMO, this is one of the major reasons that the election was stolen from him. Check out this article:

Donald Trump Has Got It Right on World War 3

On Thursday, President Trump released a new “Agenda 47” video for his 2024 campaign and slammed what is going on in Ukraine, and our current criminal administration:

“We have never been closer to World War 3 than we are today under Joe Biden. A global conflict between nuclear-armed powers would mean death and destruction on a scale unmatched in human history. It would be nuclear armageddon.”

“Nothing is more important than avoiding that nightmare. We will avoid it, but we need new leadership. Every day this proxy battle in Ukraine continues, we risk global war. We must be absolutely clear that our objective is to immediately have a total cessation of hostilities. All shooting has to stop.”

“This is the central issue. We need peace without delay. In addition, there must also be a complete commitment to dismantle the entire globalist neocon establishment that is perpetually dragging us into endless wars, pretending to fight for freedom and democracy abroad, while they turn us into a third-world country and a third-world dictatorship right here at home,” said President Trump.

Ukraine is more corrupt, but Russia is just looking like a massive moron at this point. Negotiate. Give them money for the land you want with negotiations over resources. It's not complicated.

John Bolton is Mad that Ron DeSantis is Not Gung-Ho About Waging War Against Russia

After Florida Governor Ron DeSantis offered the reasonable, realist perspective that the Russo-Ukrainian conflict does not merit any further United States involvement, the neoconservative and superhawk wings of the Republican Party went bonkers. After the launch of Russia’s “special military operation” into Ukraine on February 24, 2023 these wings of the party consolidated to support waging a proxy war against Russia. For them, anyone who dared question such actions against Russia would be deemed a Putin apologist or agent of the Kremlin. Well it looks like DeSantis might be on the Russian government’s payroll.

Bolton said the following on Twitter on March 16, 2023:

I am disappointed by @GovRonDeSantis comments on Ukraine. Whatever the political strategy was, I think that it was wrong and in terms of geopolitics it was badly wrong. The conflict in Ukraine is of vital interest to the US and we deserve leaders who understand the importance of America’s global priorities.

Zelenskyy got elected because he promised to end the civil war in Ukraine. If that had happened, Russia wouldn't have attacked Ukraine, or at least, Russia wouldn't have had that excuse to go into Ukraine.

Zelenskyy is just a puppet, the US wants this war, it will continue for years I expect. Hopefully I'm wrong about this but we'll see.

DeSantis Says ‘War Criminal’ Putin Should Be ‘Held Accountable’ Days After Saying Ukraine Not a ‘Vital’ U.S. Interest

DeSantis angered Republican hawks, Never Trumpers, and neocons less than two weeks ago when he characterized the Ukraine-Russia conflict as a “territorial dispute” that is not a “vital” U.S. interests.

DeSantis had told Fox News’s Tucker Carlson:

"While the U.S. has many vital national interests — securing our border, addressing the crisis of readiness within our military, achieving energy security and independence, checking the economic, cultural, and military power of the Chinese Communist Party — becoming further entangled in a territorial dispute between Ukraine and Russia is not one of them."

Kremlin: We'll Attack Any Country That Tries To Arrest Putin

There's been a number of new developments including tit-for-tat warnings and threats following the International Criminal Court's (ICC) last Friday issuance of an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The most blistering and alarming attack on the Hague-based court this week has been from former Russian president and current deputy chairman of the security council Dmitry Medvedev, who said any attempt to actually arrest Putin would be an act of war.

First, on Monday he said, "It’s quite possible to imagine a hypersonic missile being fired from the North Sea from a Russian ship at The Hague courthouse." He added as part of the warning: "Everyone walks under God and rockets… Look carefully to the sky..."

In follow-up on Wednesday he said in a video statement posted to Telegram that any "arrest" would surely spark world war 3...

"Let's imagine — obviously this situation which will never be realized — but nevertheless lets imagine that it was realized: The current head of the nuclear state went to a territory, say Germany, and was arrested," Medvedev said.

"What would that be? It would be a declaration of war on the Russian Federation," he continued. "And in that case, all our assets — all our missiles et cetera — would fly to the Bundestag, to the Chancellor's office."

Medvedev was responding to Germany saying it plans to cooperate with the ICC and arrest Putin if he were to ever fly to German soil.

WWIII Brewing? U.S. Launches Airstrikes in Syria after Drone Kills Contractor

'No group will strike our troops with impunity...'

(Headline USA) A strike Thursday by a suspected Iranian-made drone killed a U.S. contractor and wounded five American troops and another contractor in northeast Syria, the Pentagon said.

American forces said they retaliated soon after with “precision airstrikes” in Syria targeting facilities used by groups affiliated with Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, with activist groups saying they killed at least four people.

The attack and the U.S. response threaten to upend recent efforts to deescalate tensions across the wider Middle East, whose rival powers have made steps toward détente in recent days after years of turmoil.

“The Chinese military is willing to work together with the Russian military to fully implement the important consensus reached by the two heads of state, further strengthening strategic communication and coordination,” Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Col. Tan Kefei said.

Tan said this enhanced cooperation could include more joint exercises and patrols, such as the five days of training held in the Gulf of Oman by China, Russia, and Iran during the week of March 15. Tan said the exercises would help the three authoritarian countries to “jointly carry out diversified maritime military missions.”

Yes. From what I understand of it, it's a nuclear bomb set off above the atmosphere. The atmosphere is charged, moving it suddenly creates a magnetic and electrical surge, this hits all circuits with eddy currents, and it blows everything out.

Yep, and Air Force jets like the KC-135 are actually hardened to be able take an EMP pulse and continue functioning.
