  • Canadian fighting in Ukraine describes the 'hell' he witnessed (video)

    [Er, yes. War is hell. Do they think this is some sort of new insight or something?]


    They were presumably taken in by the BS peddled by the Biden-loving media about how much firepower the West was providing Ukraine. In reality, it’s an occasional drop rather than a trickle, and certainly not the torrent they were expecting. 10 to 1 fire Russian fire superiority and Russia’s take that all of Ukraine is a free fire zone means that Ukrainian forces are actually worse off than the Taliban or Sunni Arab insurgents, who could hide among civilians, and rely on US ROE’s against harming enemy civilians to keep them safe.

  • Trump proven unfit for power again

    [Having worked in the same circles with thousands of others I can attest that such a position does not guarantee credibility or prove someone holds conservative beliefs. I’ve known countless squishy lefty people who somehow wound up working for good conservatives. Case in point MSNBC leftist shill Nicole Wallace who has held some very high level jobs with conservative Republicans.

    This Cassidy Hutchinson is obviously a liar and no different from many other self-important staffers whose only allegiance is to themselves.]


    As I’ve pointed out elsewhere, indoctrination/brainwashing is more a statement of personal/institutional power than anything else. I can make you listen to any damn thing I feel like, and you will smile and nod approvingly, or else... Once someone reaches adulthood, you can’t change his mind - it’s baked in the cake.

    People keep underestimating the role of guile. There is a certain type of straight shooter who says whatever he feels, anytime he feels like it. But on the whole, plenty of people know how to bide their time. There are people who understand the need to put up a facade while undermining their adversaries. Not everything’s a standup fight.

    You know how even a tightly-controlled police state like the Soviet Union fell apart? Nationalists* kept their real feelings hidden while operating at the apex of the Russian empire. Yeltsin himself was a top level member of the nomenklatura, the Soviet elite. When he saw a little daylight re an opportunity to seize power, he took it.

    People aren’t pawns on a chessboard. They will burrow into a job they like, entrench themselves, and lie their butts off to keep it. And when their superiors cross them in a way that they simply cannot abide, they will gut them from stem to stern.

    * Leonid Kravchuk kept his dream of an independent Ukraine to himself even while rising to the top level of the Soviet elite. When the Russian empire was teetering on the edge of the abyss, he gave it a little nudge, at great personal risk. https://archive.ph/7kxSe

  • Alternate view on airport travel chaos: The airlines aren't holding up their end of the deal

    Zhang Fei to grey_whiskers

    [IIRC, Congress gave the airlines $50 billion of OUR money during COVID, and all they did was try to force pilots to get the jab, and buy back their own stock.]


    Airlines don’t fly passengers to their destinations by having employees flap their arms. Their massive debt balances due to the cost of financing airplanes had to be serviced in an environment where revenues had fallen sharply. For instance, Southwest, the best operator in the US, generated $2.5b in profit per year before the pandemic. In the two years since, it has lost a net $2b, or an average loss of a billion a year. It had to dilute existing shareholders to stay in business. Without the bailout to keep paying employees, the airlines might have been liquidated en masse. Most of them are barely keeping their heads above water. And that was before oil prices above $100.

    I have heard it said that some people use a website called archive.ph, cut and paste web links into a text box entitled “I want to search the archive for saved snapshots” and read articles without paying subscription fees. Let it be said that I do not recommend that anyone resort to such a highly unethical practice. Just wanted to put it out there that we live in a corrupt world.

    [Firearms manufacturers are welcome here in New Hampshire, and we have a large collection of machine shops and other specialty manufacturers to support them. We also have business friendly tax rates and no income tax for employees. ]


    Given voter trends in NH, you gotta wonder how long the resistance to an income tax, as well as its relatively gun owner friendly regulatory environment will persist. It went from a 38% victory margin for Reagan in 1980 to a 7% loss for Trump in 2020. That’s not something that will wash out.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_United_States_presidential_election#Results_by_state

    My guess? These trends are why some gun makers have completely decamped to the South. They can read the writing on the wall, and want a state government that will go to bat for them rather than sign up to a blanket party.

    Not entirely surprising that blue states are chasing away a slow-growth low-profit and politically-incorrect sector. Nonetheless, it's a pretty big move for some businesses that have been in these locations since the Revolutionary War.

    We’ll have to agree to disagree. And, regardless of your personal sentiments, young conservatives will continue to join the military to further their personal ambitions. And they will continue to lie to their superiors until they get what they want. It’s just human nature. And if there comes a time when they have to choose sides, we’ll be glad that they are in a position to do some good.

    [It’s why they’ve removed every top possible future cross-sider from its hierarchy and installed wokes like Ms. Milley at the JCS on down.]


    My basic point is that loyalty tests don’t really work. People believe what they believe. It’s mostly baked in the cake by the time they reach adulthood. If they like a given job, they will lie to get it and to keep it. You might say that’s unethical. But more unethical than imposing a loyalty test like wokeism on an organization sworn to defend the nation from its enemies? More unethical than the left’s preparation for the imposition of totalitarian dictatorship on the nation? As Churchill once said, in a different context, “In wartime, truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies.”

  • BREAKING: Russian President Vladimir Putin arrives at the Kremlin at 23:00 with his full security detail for an unknown reason.

    Ukraine ping

    PIF: [FWIW: There was a rumor that if Putin came to Belarus to met with Lukashenko, he would never return to Russia ...]


    Kamil Galeev is a young Volga Tatar who has been a significant presence on Twitter with respect to the Kremlinology of the Special Military Operation. He sees Lukashenko as a contender for Tsardom. Let’s say he manages the political equivalent of 18 holes-in-one and becomes the big cheese in Russia (that presumably includes Belarus), after pushing Putin aside. The question is whether he’d see the Ukraine operation as something he should continue, or a complete waste of resources.

    Galeev believes that the problem with Russia is structural. Its rulers even after the Romanovs were butchered are basically Tsars in all but name. So whether Lukashenko, Navalny or any of Putin’s pet siloviki waiting in the wings replaces Putin as boss of bosses, Russia’s imperial tendencies will not change.

    Yeltsin tends to be portrayed as this democrat - a man of the people. In reality, he was just a putschist, a dictator, a king in all but name, who levered himself into power using the ideological current of the moment, just like his Bolshevik predecessors.

    https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1538523966914052096.html

    Yeltsin said, during a summit in Istanbul:

    https://icds.ee/en/clinton-archives-confirm-the-need-for-nato-enlargement/
    [I am a European. I live in Moscow, Moscow is in Europe and I like it. You can take all the other states and provide security to them. I will take Europe and provide them security. Well, not I. Russia will.]

    He figured Bill Clinton was a soft touch. He was right, but even Slick Willy wasn’t born yesterday.

    [Veteran 68-76 here. I tell any young man or woman who is thinking about a career in the military to learn a trade, get experience and work towards your own business. But buy and own guns and become proficient with them because the battlefield will eventually be right here in this country.

    Todays recruits are nothing more than pawns and test subjects for politically charged schemes that nothing to do with the military’s actual mission, and as Biden has shown, he will abandon you at the drop of a hat.]


    That’s a really bad idea. The Southerners who resisted in the War of Northern Aggression were mostly led by combat veterans who had served in the Union Army. If the ructions you describe come to pass, we will need people in the military who not only can operate the full spectrum of equipment in the nation’s armory, but also have access to it. Any resistance must be mounted using the full panoply of arms in the nation’s inventory. After all, we paid for it - we should get our share.

    Notice how Ukraine is hamstrung by the fact that it doesn’t have nukes or the vast majority of the weaponry to which the Russians lay claim. For us to win, we need everything from the basic M-4 carbine to Ohio class submarines with the full complement of SLBM’s. That won’t happen if only Democrats and progressives serve in the military.

    If the war you envision comes into view, we will need more than our personal weapons to prevail. That’s where control of the nation’s arsenal, conventional and nuclear, comes into play. When Biden says Democrats will crush Republicans with F-15’s and nukes, he’s assuming they’re the only ones with F-15’s and nukes. And it’s patriotic young Republicans and conservatives interested in things military who will deny Democrats and progressives a monopoly on this loaded gun pointed at our collective heads.

    [Ah, the old demonrat playbook in use. When losing an argument resort to name calling and be sure it includes nazi.]


    The Democrats call people Nazis just for disagreeing with them on fairly pedestrian things like abortion and revolving door justice. The Russians are turning Ukraine into piles of rubble leavened with meat scraps unless it surrenders and you are backing Russia. That makes you the nearest thing to a Nazi this side of the 21st century. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course. Being a Nazi sympathizer is not the same thing as being a Nazi. A Nazi has actually killed the lice the rest of the world considers people. The commonality between you and the Nazis is that you consider Ukrainians lice. Again, it’s a free country, and you can think whatever you want.

    Nazis like you are cheering Russia on, so you do give a crap, which is you keep commenting on these threads.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course. Germans gonna German.

    [The wounded were all killed, usually with their heads being crushed by stone mallets or war clubs. The very few unwounded that fell into the hands of the Indians were treated most barbarously. There is evidence suggesting that three were burned. The dead were horribly mutilated.]


    No quarter given or asked. The theory is that the wounded can be treated and returned to battle, and they couldn’t exactly afford to feed the prisoners, plus they were too much of a handful to enslave. Of course, the mewling by the descendants of the Indians invited to take a really long hike by Andrew Jackson is a little unseemly, given what their forebears did to losers, civilian and military alike, of any ethnicity, Indians or white, exemplified by the massacre at Little Big Horn. Same exact reasoning used in Vietnam by two sets of combatants - the Vietnamese Communists during the Vietnam War, where they butchered entire villages unwilling to assist them, and the Chinese during their invasion in which the Vietnamese claimed they massacred 100,000 civilians in 6 weeks, after encountering guerrilla resistance.

    Ruthless? Sure. Effective? So far, so good.

    [No. None of the Russian provided equipment was their best. Od F-16 variants would be a good analogy. ]


    Mig-21’s were a decade old when they handed them to North Vietnam. F-16’s have been around for over 40 years. Aircraft are a lot more valuable than artillery. The skies are the ultimate high ground. That’s precisely why they’ve been denied to Ukraine. Western leaders are strangling Ukraine while pretending to prop it up because their voters are aghast at the carnage Russia is inflicting while simultaneously being impressed at the valor displayed by Ukrainian fighting men and women.

    Ukraine ping

    The West has provided a trickle of equipment nowhere close to denting the 10 to 1 big gun advantage in Russia’s favor. Western pols highlighted the dollar amounts, 90+% of which is humanitarian aid, to distract from the measly additions to Ukraine’s arsenal. In total, Ukraine has received less than 200 howitzers. In 1964, the first year of the Vietnam War, China alone handed over 1000 artillery pieces to North Vietnam, with 64,000+ in total supplied by 1974. Russia handed over MiG-17’s, MiG-19’s and MiG-21’s, with MiG-21’s being the state-of-the-art Russian airframe of the time. It would as if the US had sent F-15’s, F-35’s and F-22’s to Ukraine.

    Given the massive imbalance in firepower, sheer courage alone stands in the way of withering Russian shellfire. Unless they have a death wish, foreigners sympathetic to Ukraine’s plight would literally be more productive picketing the home of their local pol to urge them to send more howitzers and big gun ammo than volunteering in Ukraine.

    He’s running in what is probably the most conservative state in the union.

    The author is factually wrong. SC is one of the least right-wing among GOP-majority states. Trump won the state by under 12%. That's the bottom 1/4 of the victory margins among the states he won. That's how a Confederate flag-banning quisling like Nikki Haley retains her following in the state. Don't take my word for it. Check out the 2020 results table from Wikipedia.
