我不太确定如何解释这一点,但 CBS 新闻发布了一部似乎基于 Daily Stormer 文章的纪录片。 这部纪录片在某处上映,我还没有看过,但他们在推特上发布的预告片开始谈论如何没有人知道这些武器的去向。

他们没有透露受访者的姓名,但一位女士表示,没有任何机制可以追踪这些武器的去向。

另一名男子说,只有 30% 的武器到达目的地。

然后,某个带有英国(或澳大利亚?)口音的人说,如果武器落入“坏人之手”,他“根本不在乎”。

他们随后采访了一些人,他们说欧洲人民被承诺欧盟项目意味着结束暴力冲突,现在欧盟正在告诉他们的人民,欧盟的目的是针对俄罗斯的世界大战。

我不知道主流媒体正在制作批评这场战争的纪录片是什么意思。 它可能一定意味着什么。 它不可能是被生产出来然后意外发布的。

请记住,在西方媒体的各个层面,这里的背景都是不停地对战争大肆宣扬,任何质疑战争的人都被指责为不爱国,因此对民主构成威胁。

我将尝试弄清楚如何观看这部纪录片。 看起来他们希望您为此付费。 但是,提出美国发送的70%的武器正在消失得无影无踪的想法是相当大的。 显然,这些武器中的大部分将由乌克兰官员出售——但他们卖给谁呢?

我们在网上看到了未经证实的广告,人们向中东的恐怖分子出售各种武器,尽管这些广告似乎是个人发布的。 如果乌克兰政府官员将这些武器批量出售给各种恐怖组织,他们就不会通过互联网上的广告这样做。

总而言之,这些武器在某些时候不会用于欧洲境内的恐怖主义活动的可能性实际上为零。 你不能让价值数十亿美元的武器化为乌有,并期望它们永远不会被使用。 有人计划使用它们,否则他们不会购买它们。

主流媒体极少反对叙事。 你不会看到哥伦比亚广播公司的纪录片检查桑迪胡克是危机参与者制造的骗局的证据。

这里的基本含义是,由于管理不善,美国发动和输掉了这场战争,媒体正准备将这一切归咎于乔·拜登。 我认为这就是我们前进的方向。 所有这些超级愚蠢的东西——最终将非常不受欢迎——将被归咎于乔·拜登。 然后,在 2024 年大选前夕,该党将发生某种转变,他们将选出一位新候选人,他将一切都归咎于拜登,并发誓要解决这一切。

哥伦比亚广播公司的预告以乔·拜登的一句话开头,这为“乔的愚蠢战争”奠定了基调。

我们已经看到其他迹象表明乌克兰正在被抛弃。 联合国和国际特赦组织现在都公开指责乌克兰参与了严重的战争罪行,特别是在系统性使用人体盾牌作为核心战略学说方面。

然后你让美国转向中国,其明确目的是让乌克兰脱离头条新闻。

字里行间不难看出:美国已经输掉了这场战争,现在他们必须摆脱它。 但人们不会只是忘记它发生了,所以有人将不得不被扔到公共汽车下。 乔·拜登对每个人来说都一文不值,对于民主党人来说是一场彻头彻尾的灾难,他们把所有的精力都放在了这个年迈的老笨蛋身上,却从来没有解释过一个年迈的总统的目标是什么。 但他们可以很容易地说他们不知道发生了什么,拜登和他的人用武力进来并接管了。

很明显,与中国的战争不会比与俄罗斯的战争更好,即使他们确实认为他们在佩洛西登陆时取得了“胜利”。 但如果失败了,他们可以把乔扔到公共汽车下面,这只是另一件事。

从长远来看,这意味着美国将不得不摆脱持续的地缘政治惨败,转向内向。 这没有多大意义,因为至少自二战结束以来,美国的整个目标就是统治全球。 还有一个问题是,在所有这些持续的屈辱之后退出世界舞台将意味着美元将被取代为全球储备货币,这将意味着美国将不再能够保持不变在家中进行控制,因为他们只是没有钱进行所有这些项目。

当然,整个世界秩序都是以美元作为储备货币为基础的,如果美元下跌,即使是这些反对这一点的国家——中国、印度、沙特阿拉伯等——也会有很多损失。 在过去的几个月里,他们有点说“好吧,好吧——我们只是要承受打击,因为我们别无选择。” 也许如果美国退出全球舞台,他们在取代美元的计划中会放慢脚步。 如果我是一个期待 2024 年的民主党人,那这就是我所希望的:有一种方法可以从世界舞台上撤退,并发出一种“哈哈,对不起,伙计们。 啊哈哈,没有难过的感觉……”然后继续在世界经济中占据重要地位,而不是恶毒的恶霸。

话虽如此,我真的不认为这些人足够聪明,无法完成任何事情,即使他们确实有一个模糊的计划。

观看会很有趣。

    There was an internal AFU (Ukraine military) memo leaked this past week giving an inside look to what a clusterfuck it is for the Kiev regime.

    The Moon of Alabama, a military analysis site, highlighted key parts on the memo:

    -The AFU are only at 43-48% strength

    – medical workers at their limit

    – small arms and armor are not enough

    – 191 thousand soldiers were killed and wounded (only AFU, not including others)

    – there is not enough hydraulics and liquid nitrogen for M777 howitzers

    – no one cares about the missing – there are no statistics

    – the equipment transferred by the West is running out

    – western weapons are operated by amateurs, since there are no qualified specialists

    – no way to repair weapons on the spot due to the lack of spares and specialists – everything is sent to Poland

    Amazing, and meanwhile Russia hasn’t even activated its military and is only conducting a limited operation with an expeditionary force.

    There is a saying that Russians are mathematicians and Ukrainians are farmers. So maybe NATO commanders would be doing better and winning if they had Russian soldiers and fighting against Ukrainians??

    The billions supposedly sent to Ukraine are actually gifts to the US MIC. Overpriced military weaponry is sent to Ukraine as this advertised aid, lowering US inventory and thus necessitating contracts for a resupply. The US weapons are overvalued and much of it is revealed to be garbage. They’re using this war as an advert for US weapons to hype sales. The Russians seem to be successfully interdicting much of it and who knows what else is going on with all this anyway since it’s a war situation. The US wants to see as many people killed as possible and their collaborator Zelensky is obliging them till the day he skips out, leaving his former countrymen holding the bag.

  9. It doesn’t take much to read between the lines here: the US has lost this war, and now they have to pivot away from it. But people aren’t just going to forget that it happened

    Yes they will. The average Westoid has the intelligence of a retarded squid. They went from “Tee-hee let’s bomb all the Muslim children on their way to school for fun. Trade your rag for a flag Muzzie terrorists” to “OMG teh evil Chicoms are sending our precious Muslim terrorists to manners school! This is genocide!” in a matter of months. No cognitive dissonance at all.

    To these Westoid tards, the whole Russia hysteria thing basically never even happened at this point. We’ve always been at war with Eastasia.

  10. The entirety of the weapons racket Andrew Anglin writes about, including all the personalities involved and the minutiae of its operation, was laid out in John le Carré’s novel 夜班经理.* As has happened before more times than can be counted, fact here replicates fiction.

Like the Jews, the bad guys—for whom they ought to be seen as stand-ins—remain untouchable.

    I’d be surprised if even 30% arrive “at their destination”. It seems a lot. The hope is that most of those weapons are not even delivered, and it is just a money laundering scheme where no actual weapons are sent, just money. Otherwise, there will be lots of terrorists with new toys.

  17. On the one hand, I am pleasantly surprised that even a faint hint of the truth has been put out by the Western media.

    On the other, well, is anyone surprised to hear this?

    Three months ago, when Rand Paul had the temerity to suggest that it might be good idea to appoint an inspector general to oversee just where these tens of billions of dollars in military aid were going, you would have thought the end of the world had arrived in the US Congress. “What, you mean 指派某人 to take a look at where all of this money is going? Who do you think you are, Putin’s boyfriend?”

    Now, of course, we find out that the money is just being carelessly thrown around. Wasn’t there a similar episode in America’s Iraq debacle where actual shrink-wrapped 托盘 of 100 dollar bills ended up at Baghdad International Airport and were trucked to Iraq’s central bank only to mysteriously vanish shortly thereafter?

  18. Ukraine stated officially that it has lost 190,000 troops so far. The Jew Zelensky and his NATO backers are effectively killing ofg Ukrainians.

    Also, just like the war in Syria was useful for eliminating Muslim extremists from all over the world so the war in the Ukraine is helping to kill off NeoNazis from everywhere. Jewish media and ZOG governments are encouraging all their NeoNazis to enlist as mercenaries and head to the Ukraine where they’re usually blown away en masse in their barracks by Russian missiles before even firing a single bullet at the frontline. And despite the warnings of a few who have managed to escape back to the West more and more more idiot NeoNazis are being recruited and sent over there to meet the same fate. It’s all rather cynical of the ZOG governments, getting the Russians to kill off their NeoNazis and white supremacists so they won’t have to fight them at home; they don’t want to win the war but just get as many Ukrainians and international NeoNazis killed. Since they intend to clear space for a New Khazaria it would probably be best if Russia were to deny them that opportunity and just take over all of the Ukraine when the time is right, probably soon enough. Leaving any part of it to the Khazars will only create more instability and problems in the future as those remaining in any rump Ukraine will be plotting to convert their dream of a Greater Khazaria into reality.

    It’s pretty obvious that the war with China is not going to go any better than the war with Russia, even if they do think they scored a “win” with the Pelosi landing.

    Well, they scored a “win” when they pulled the Maidan coup and look how it’s ending. And no, there isn’t a chance that the USA will start looking inward and there is a simple reason for that: the USA isn’t run by Americans, it is run by “rootless cosmopolitans”.

  20. To translate = Only 30% of arms are actually getting shipped to Ukraine” = IN REALITY – the Russians are taking them all most out before they get to the battlefield, but us “useless eaters must not know that the Russians are winning hands down” PLUS there is a side issue of them being moved to other “hot spots” and freely available on the dark web.

    Russia takes out 45,000 tons of NATO ammo – MoD = https://www.rt.com/russia/560405-russia-ukraine-depot-nato-strike/

    报价

    “The Russian military has taken out a depot in southern Ukraine that stored NATO-supplied ammunition, the Defense Ministry claimed on Sunday.

    “In the Voznesensk area of the Nikolaev region an arsenal that stored 45,000 tons of ammunition recently supplied to the Ukrainian Armed Forces by NATO countries has been destroyed,” the ministry stated, adding that Russian forces eliminated five other ammo depots.

    Meanwhile, the Russian army conducted strikes on the deployment point of units of Ukraine’s 72nd mechanized brigade at an agricultural facility in the Donetsk People’s Republic city of Artemovsk, wiping out up to 130 soldiers and eight transport and armored vehicles, the ministry’s statement read.

    Moscow’s forces, the ministry continued, also used high-precision air-based missiles to attack a howitzer battery of Ukraine’s 95th Air Assault Brigade in the village of Dzerzhinsk in the DPR. According to the statement, the strike killed up to 70 service members, destroyed three 2S1 Gvozdika self-propelled guns and four vehicles.

    The Russian Defense Ministry noted that faced with high losses, “the regime of [Ukrainian President Vladimir] Zelensky is taking measures to make up for the shortage of military personnel” in Donbass. Kiev, the statement said, has decided to send to the frontline mobilized Ukrainian citizens from a training center, as well as wounded service members who did not have enough time to fully recover.

    On Tuesday, Zelensky said that the fighting in Donbass was “hell,” claiming that Kiev’s military remained heavily outgunned and even outnumbered by Russia. He appealed to the US and its allies for even more weapons, in particular the HIMARS rocket launchers.

    Moscow has repeatedly warned the West against sending weapons to Kiev, saying it only prolongs the conflict, increases the number of casualties, and will result in long-term consequences.”

    I am not sure the Russians are 相当 that efficient, but you may be right. My own impression is that the Russians are slowly grinding the Ukrainians down largely through artillery strikes.

    Regardless, I should think it is obvious by now to all but the most wishful thinking that the Ukrainians are in a bad way. My understanding is that their morale is pretty much down the pan.

    The only way the Ukrainian military is maintaining any semblance of order after so many months of war is by treating their own troops so brutally that sticking around and fighting the Russians is viewed as the lesser of two evils, but not by much. Perhaps I am underestimating the resolve of the Ukrainians, but I cannot see them lasting more than another 2 or 3 months before they start surrendering 集体 to avoid dying pointlessly.

    Any way you look at it, white people murdering white people in the hundreds every day is a catastrophe and only evil people would wish it to continue.

    {Just how stupid do you have to be to store 45,000 t of ammunition in one place in wartime?}

    It is not implausible.

    I calculated 45,000 tons (metric ton, i.e. 1,000 kilogram, = 45,000,000 kilograms) 碎石 to be roughly a cube of 30 meters x 30 meters x 30 meters. or about 100 feet side cube. Or maybe a warehouse that is 20 feet high x 500 feet long x 100 feet wide. Of course steel is not gravel and there is some empty space between the bullets in the crate or the shells in the crate, but it is within the ballpark. For example, the M777 projectile weighs ~ 50 kg. So 1,000 shells would be 50,000 kilograms and wouldn’t take that much space.

    One or two high precision Kalibers with the appropriate warhead will start all the ammunition and charges cooking off, and the whole warehouse is gone.

    Forgot to address your main point:

    In war, you are between a rock and a hard place. You have to have some large distribution/storage facilities in the rear from where you distribute smaller amounts as needed: you can’t really spread the ammo all over the place, because then you lose track of what you got and also you lose control.

    Presumably the distribution warehouse was deep in the rear, “secret” location, and well camouflaged. But as has been numerous times, Russian intelligence — which appears to have excellent sources — finds these places and strikes them remotely.

    The same thing happened long time ago, if you remember, when Russia struck the “secret” training camp of foreign mercenaries near Polish border and killed ~200. We can say the same thing: “….were these guys stupid to have 200 fighters training in one place?…..”

    “I agree that it’s hard to phantom the United States getting out of the world hegemony business” seems an accurate comment. The world probably benefited from the 1 Super Power status for the first 30 or 40 years following WW2 but since then we morphed into being the worlds mafia. Leaders of countries around the world who were not to our liking were given the choice of walk away peacefully with some CIA cash; have your government overthrown by our CIA; or be assassinated by guess who. 2/3rds of Washington D.C. is addicted to war.

    Actually, on this one, I don’t think it is so much Russian intelligence’s success as it is Ukrainian idiocy at work. I mean, the nazitards in Kiev announced that they were about to launch an offensive to retake Kherson, they moved troops to the Nikolaev region, and obviously those troops would have needed ammunition, so they stockpiled the ammunition in one storage facility on the road to Nikolaev. My guess is that the much advertised Ukrainian offensive on Kherson has now been put on hold.

  41. Not only the Ukrainians and NeoNazis getting killed in this conflict but also many others elsewhere could face death from the cold and starvation as a consequence of the war and sanctions. This also seems to be very convenient for the NWO and in line with their general plans for the world’s populations. Their propaganda is designed to demoralise the masses and make them accept their present and future suffering with resignation. All attempts at revolution to improve their situation seem to be futile as now Russians are blamed for fuel and food shortages, rising prices, poverty, etc. instead of the elites and their government policies.

    By the end of August, the secessionist oblasts, Luhansk and Donetsk, will be liberated from the oppression of the Ukro-Nazis, completing Phase 2. Most of this progress will have been achieved with the Luhansk and Donetsk militias, the Wagner Group (retired Spetnaz mercenaries) and Russian Army artillery, without much involvement from the actual Russian Army (as you say).

    Phase 2 will have resulted in the destruction of most of the AFU and this will allow the rapid liberation of the Mykolaiv, Odesa and the rest of the Black Sea coast. Without an Army, Ukraine will either beg for terms or more likely continue to fight (per instructions from the U.S.), putting up only token resistance and the Russians will proceed to occupy the rest of Ukraine.

    Yes, I have found MSC to be one of the better sources for information, if only because Dima (the chap who runs the channel) is forthright about specifying which bits of information he is using come from the Russians, which are from the Ukrainians*, and which bits are his own speculation.

    He is not infallible, but he is trying his best and most of his projections turn out to be correct; I cannot ask for more than that. He certainly beats most of the Western sources, who have been sounding like auxiliaries of the Ukrainian MOD for so long even their own audiences are beginning to notice.

And when things crash, as they are intended to, the desiccated husk of Joe Biden will be a perfect scapegoat.

    The West is agreement-incapable (Putin dixit), so never to be trusted. The world is also fed up with the US and want to distance themselves from the bully.

    The US sanctions are destroying Western Europe’s industrial base. When the general population of Western Europe finds that this destruction is real, their current governments will be replaced by governments that will repudiate their subordination to US control. It appears that the US could only have won the Ukrainian/Russian conflict if the conflict had ended before October, 2022.

    Strangely enough, the US formation of AUKUS (and its alliance with Japan) seems to have anticipated the loss we are now seeing unfold. One interpretation is that the US diplomatic professionals (if any or at all) have seen that the US no longer has the industrial/political base to maintain its policing of the commercial sea lanes, and for several decades has been switching to a carrier group based blue water domination strategy. Given that interpretation, Europe is not an asset, but rather an indefensible risk, and should be left to defend itself through integration with the Russian Federation. The current Ukraine/Russia conflict is just political theater with lots of bodies (as was the Vietnam War, don’t forget [1]).

    As for the rest of the world not liking the US, well, the US doesn’t like the rest of the world that much. The US likes the rest of the world much less after (a) watching the world under US guidance transform into a bad imitation of the US or a penny dreadful barbarism, and (b) having the scum of the world brought to the US under US sponsorship so that the US citizenry could see close up what they look like and do.

    The utter failure US suzerainty, both domestically and internationally, appears to have triggered what used to be called “isolationists” by the advocates of US Empire, but is now looking like simple prudence, or perhaps simple survival.

    Excellent observation. It would be good if Galicians’ the closest allies, Croatian Ustashas, are more present there. Croatians were the only European nation that was never denazified and for decades were hiding behind Croat Tito and communists who protected them. Ustashas currently enjoy 99.99% support in Croatia (and 100% among Croats here). Unfortunately, they are cowards, brave only to slit the throats of kids, women and elderly. Russian sources say (Jun 22) that only 51 Croat was killed in Ukraine and 79 deserted from mercenaries what is pretty disappointing.

  58. Odyssey 说:

    While we await one of the main battles in Ukraine for the city of Bakhmut (formerly Artemovsk), let’s recall a little history. That area was ravaged by the Tatars and practically had no inhabitants. At the same time, Austria-Hungary decided to disband the Military Krajina, which was the protection of Europe from the Ottomans and stretched from the Carpathians, through Vojvodina and along the Bosnia-Croatia border to the Adriatic Sea. That Krajina (‘borderland’) was made up of Serbs who had tax privileges and received noble titles.

    A part of the Serbs decided to move to the Russian Empire and to settle there. They received two empty areas for settlement in today’s Ukraine and formed a new Serbian Krajina there. One was ‘Slavo-Serbia’, which center was Bahmut and the other was ‘New Serbia’. This is how Serbs actually formed today’s Ukraine (=‘borderland’). Although they wanted to maintain their uniqueness and their church, they were still assimilated by Russians. Of these Serbs, there were 7 generals of the Russian army who were distinguished for the victory of the Russian army against Napoleon. Many current fighters of the Donbass Republic are descendants of these Serbs who immigrated in 1752, and there are probably some of them in the current Ukrainian army as well.

  59. @Wade Hampton

    You are very optimistic – the Evil Empire is putting a lot of effort and (our) money into the fight on the Ukrainian side. Eternal paranoia is essential when confronting such people.

    For example, there’s a CNN piece on how at present the “Green Route” by which civilians can cross between Russian/Ukrainian zones is mostly used by people heading for Russian controlled territory and seemingly not intending to return. Russian-allied forces are at present stopping most people going the other way.

    People online are presenting this as ethnic Russians cheerfully heading for “Russki Mir”, but for all one can tell they may be resistance sleeper types waiting for the much-promised Kherson offensive.

    I’m very surprised at how open the Internet is in the conflict zones. There are a number of pro-Ukrainian sites on Youtube showing live webcams from both sides of the fighting, and on some cameras in places like Donetsk you can see (and I have seen) Russian military vehicles pass. That strikes me as a massive security hole that Russia/DPR/LPR should be filling. You only need someone to do a bit of geolocation, zero in an artillery piece and wait, unless the cameras can be somehow delayed. Similarly there’s a feed of a Donetsk shopfront and the commenters are openly discussing whether ‘Z’ troops use the shop.

    I’d have thought it a priority to locate and shut down or delay all webcams in Novorossiya that could show Allied military movements.

    Another thing to consider is phone/internet comms – I see 6 people in Bakhmut were arrested overnight (there’s a tweet that they were all shot and killed, but it’s totally unconfirmed) on charges of being “Russian sympathisers”, which presumably means giving away UKR troop positions. We know it happens (UKR soldiers and mercenaries have been complaining about it forever) but the fairly recent arrests of more than 700 people near the front lines seems to imply that UKR are getting better at detecting it.

    Are they, probably with US/UK help, monitoring phones and web comms? If so, the Allies need to think how people can help them without endangering themselves. Tricky problem.

    “Hey, where’s jew2, bumboycommand, and peterPOS? I want to hear all about the long-awaited Ukrainian counteroffensive. It was supposed to start in August, right?”

    Oh, you want to hear all about the counteroffensive? That surprises me. By the way, I am not Jewish. But let us first discuss the article by our top expert Andrew Anglin, just to get a feeling how reliable he is. Here is the comment to the document by CBS:
    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/ukraine-military-aid-weapons-front-lines/

    From it follows that the document was made in April and reflects the situation at that time. It also does not address the situation with weapons but nonlethal help, like night googles and bullet proof vests. This is because the main source of the document, Jonas Ohman, is a NCO and cannot transport weapons. Ohman estimates that in April only 30-40% of the stuff he was transporting got the the destination, rest was taken over by oligarchs or security forces or something. Surely Ukraine is a corrupted country, just the second most corrupted in Europe after Russia. We would expect that if you had over stuff to Ukrainians in the border, then much of it disappears. However, Ohman says that the situation has improved since April. The article adds that there is now some American overseeing what happens to US weapons.

    Let us then continue to the Ukraine counterattack. First, see three maps, all are Ukrainian, but they match to a large extent with other maps.

    The map one shows military icons, so you can read Ukraine deployment of forces (that is only the author’s guess, do not expect it is precise)
    https://militaryland.net/maps/invasion-maps/kherson-front/
    This is only from Kherson front, where the counteroffensive should be going on, but
    you find lots of maps in militaryland.net. The author of the website is a private person, but obviously former military. In case you do not know NATO map icons, check the Wikipedia.
    The issue with Kherson area is that Ukraine army has forbidden all information of the area, so nothing changes in the Northern corner of occupied area. We have to wait until there comes information.

    The second map shows Russian unit displacement in Ukraine guess. These icons seem to be pigs and not actually NATO or any other military official icons. But maybe they are better on your level.
    https://deepstatemap.live/en#7.75/48.466/36.948
    我们注意到 militaryland.net and deepStateMap differ in details, e.g. whether Vysokopillia is under Russian or Ukraine control. The DeepStateMap shows Ukraine counterattack on another front, just under Izium.

    The last map is liveuamap
    https://liveuamap.com/
    It is imprecise, but nicely shows the Russian bombings as announced by Ukraine. What strikes to the eye is that in the Northern part of occupied Kherson area there are only few Russian bombings. It may indicate many things, including that Ukraine is pushing Russians to the South. But we cannot see it from these maps. From the British Intelligence announcements this may be the case. Additionally there is the ISW map, but as the head of ISW is a Kagan, I leave it out. But ISW daily analyses may be quite good for you to read as you seem to have second rate sources.

    The situation in the war is that Russia has in 4 months advanced in Donbas about 40 km. That is, one km per day. That is poor. In the same time Ukraine has gained back almost as much area elsewhere. Ukraine does have some kind of a counteroffensive going on and we should wait until there is some information, at least we should wait to the end of August. Russia uses now volunteer batallions. These volunteers get about 4000 euro/month if they make an attack. Therefore we can be sure they make an attack but only as much as to get paid, not as much as to die. This also implies that these attacks do not advance far. Russians seem to be stopped and often pushed back. This is what you can expect if you take non-trained men who would like to earn 4000 euros/month and send them to the battlefield. They will do just enough to get the money, and they will try hard not to die. So, phony attacks is what you can expect. But Russians advance slowly because of artillery. That is, until Ukraine gets weapons to counter that artillery or Russians destroy artillery tubes by firing too many times (there is a limit to number and a highest firing speed, else you destroy the weapon, from 1 month trained men you cannot expect much expertise). Ukraine services Western weapons abroad, mostly I think in Czech, but it can be now in Poland, I do not know. In Ukraine Russians still shoot missiles, though Iskanders are already out.

    That’s about it. Hope this helps, and fix this jew2, it is j2. And tell Anglin to check his stories, they are already far too bad level. Cheers, amateur.

    As for the reason why CNB aired the document now though it was made in April, of course there is a reason, not difficult to figure out. Jews, who run all American major news agencies, would like Russia to win. This is why Jews like Kissinger and Kolomoisky state that Ukraine should give land area to Russia. From the very start MSM was on the Russian side: exactly MSM claimed that Russia would take Kiev in 72 hours, which turned out to be largely incorrect. The same is with other Jewish owned sites, like e.g. this The Unz Review: they are strongly pro-Russia. It is not surprising considering how many Russians have moved to Israel and all Russian-Jewish oligarchs. Sure, Jews wanted this war and wanted Ukraine to provoke the war, but their goal was that Russia would easily win and Ukraine be merged to Russia. Why else would any reasonably clear-thinking Jew want the war if they were pro-Ukraine, as the usual expectation was that Russia would surely win?

    First, it’s not allegedly 45 kt of explosives, it’s allegedly 45 kt of ammunition. Now, the Ukrainians announced an offensive to retake Kherson? Did it happen? The likely reason why it didn’t: the Russians blew up the warehouse where the Ukrainians stored the ammunition for the offensive. How much did they store in it? We don’t know for sure. What we know for sure is that the announced Ukrainian offensive hasn’t happened yet.
    If the offensive happens in the next few days, the Russians are wrong about what they blew up. If the offensive doesn’t happen, the Russians are right about what they blew up.

    “Jews want Russia to win? We now know, without the slightest doubt, that you are 100%, absolutely fucking insane. ”

    We know without the slightest doubt that you are pro-Russian troll, but there are some arguments pointing to the direction that Jews want Russian to win this war.

    Firstly, let us notice that the countries that most help Ukraine with weapons and everything are not Israel but the former Communistic countries, some of which were in the Soviet Union. This is naturally because these countries have been under Russian power and do not want to end up there again. These countries include Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Czech, Slovakia, Moldova and so on. Israel, instead, blocked Ukraine from getting an air defense system from the USA as it contained some Israeli Iron Dome technology. Israel has not sent weapons to Ukraine. Israel is buying gas from Russia. Israel is not in the bandwagon for Ukraine.

    Secondly Kolomoisky, whom The Unz Reviw identifies as the real power behind Zelensky, has recently made a statement that Ukraine should give land area to Russia, echoing what Kissinger and MSM were saying around the same time, about two months ago when Western military experts made no such statements and were mostly predicting that this will be a long war and a stalemate. But MSM (which The Unz Review commenters know is Jewish run) and some prominent Jews were clearly wanting Russian to win by Ukraine agreeing to a peace where it gives land. (That would not help, as all military people know: Russia would simply rebuild its army and attack again in a few years, that’s what Russia has earlier done.)

    Thirdly, Jews do not have a stake in this war. Instead, this war has a very simple explanation as a war against Russian expansionism where the USA takes part for geopolitical reasons. The main argument by Giraldi and others that this is a Jewish war is that there are several Jews in high positions in the US government. There are Jews in high positions everywhere in the USA, so if that argument would be valid, then everything the USA does would be determined by Jews. But this is not the case. For instance, the Obama government in the very end did not veto on a UN vote condemning Israel. Clearly, this was not pro-Israel action from the USA and it was not done by Jews. (Trump did veto this vote later.) The USA also has its own geopolitical aims. The role of Jews is mainly that US politics is not against Israel or Jewish interests. Russia also has geopolitical interests. It had these interests long before there were any Jews in Russia. These interests include getting seaports and controlling e.g. Ukraine area. This is the context where the present war is most natural to be seen: even if there were no Jews in this world, Russia would still try to keep Ukraine under its influence, but also, all countries under Russian influence tend to like to get away of this influence because it is not good for them. The USA as a major power can and wants to take part in this conflict as it in that way can increase its own power. There is nothing to win for Jews in this war. There are Jewish millionaires both in Russia and in Ukraine. Jews have historically hated Ukrainians much more than Russians, as in Ukraine there was a Cossack uprising against Jews. The argument of second Khazarian state is totally silly, i.e., that some part of Ukraine would be emptied of people because of this war (that so far has killed maybe 20,000 civilians of 40 million) and Jews of Israel (or maybe the USA) could move to Ukraine. This idea, mentioned at least by Commentator Mike, is really insane.

    “For those who don’t understand, that current battle line is the last urban area before the fields. After the Ukraine line collapses – which it is probably going to do within the next month – Russia can just make a beeline to the river, moving as fast as their trucks can move.”

    So we say, Commentator Mike thinks this story was a reasonable military analysis of the current situation and therefore he predicts Ukraine to fall probably withing the next month. We will see if you are correct. Everybody can make predictions, whether with some military understanding or not.

    “I also read that the Ukrainian police are rounding up and disappearing people in areas they control to prevent them from voting in such, and forthcoming referenda. Can’t wait for such referenda in Kharkov, Kiev, etc. no matter under whose control. ”

    “Kherson is effectively under the control of the Russian National Guard. They are the so-called police. These are people from the Berkut who, after the Maidan in 2014 fled Ukraine. Now they are returning, filled with hate for Ukrainians,” he said.
    So, the Ukraine police unit that Russia is using in Kherson are former members of Ukraine riot police unit Berkut, which was opposing pro-Maidan demonstrators and mainly responsible for violations of human rights. The unit was stopped in 2014 when Yanykovitch run away, they went to Crime and are now back. They do cause disappearances, and they are from (former) Ukraine police, but they are pro-Russia and want people to vote for annexation.

Of course Zelensky will keep resisting this until there is no Ukraine left but if this is part of a Jewish plot I can’t yet tell.

    “Many commenters on UR have repeatedly shown evidence of Israel arming the Azov Battalion.”

    You find the equipment of Ukraine land forces from this list, it includes weapons donated to Ukraine for the present war:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_equipment_of_the_Armed_Forces_of_Ukraine

    From this list you locate the Matador anti-tank missile and see that it is partially German made and was donated by Germany. You also see many Israel made rifles, of the type Fort. Ukraine makes Fort rifles by license in Ukraine and has bought other rifles from Israel. Additionally you find that Ukraine has two Bird-Eye UAVs bought from Israel in 2008, but Ukraine could not pay for training and it is unknown if these UAVs are used. From the arsenal of many countries you find some Israel made weapons as the country is a weapon producer. Russia also also has weapons from Israel, even such that Ukraine has destroyed. From the Oryx list
    https://www.oryxspioenkop.com/2022/02/attack-on-europe-documenting-equipment.html
    you find the line
    3 Forpost reconnaissance UAV: (1, destroyed) (2, destroyed) (3, destroyed)
    That is an Israeli UAV.

    What Israel could have done was not blocking the USA from giving an airdefense system to Ukraine that is not the Iron Dome that presently is in Israel but an American system that partially uses technology that belongs to Israel. Giving this system to Ukraine would not harm Israel, but they did not want to do it. Indeed, Israel has good relations with Russia. During the Syrian war Putin allowed Israeli planes to shoot at Hezbollah in Syria though Hezbollah was on the same side as Russia. For Israel a strong Russia is good: if the enemies of Israel are friends of Russia and Russia is a competitor of the USA, then the USA gives weapon help to Israel. What would have happened if the Arab Spring (an American idea) had succeeded and all neighbors of Israel had become peaceful democracies? Then the USA would fast stop funding Israel army, as this army is funded as a foothold of the West in a hostile territory that for some time was armed by Russia and not by a friend of Russia, that is Iran. But Israel-Russia relations are good. Putin is no antisemite having so many Jewish friends. Putin may be partially Jewish himself. Jews have no problem with Russians. They found antisemitism in Ukraine, Baltic countries and Poland, because those were the countries where they lived. In Russia they got good positions in Communistic times and spies who gave the Soviet Union the atomic bomb were I think Jewish. Very good relations, I would say. They still continue. But Ukraine, there were the Ukri-Nazis hunting Jews in the WWII time. Why would Jews help Ukraine?

    “And why is it unreasonable to demand that the Ukraine gives up ethnic Russian regions?”

    As Ukraine is an independent country, it is for Ukraine people to decide if they allow some part of their country to separate. But those eastern areas are not majority ethnic Russians. The majority of people there speak Russian, but only a part of them are ethnic Russians. In an old map from the Russian Empire just before the Communistic Revolution the area of Ukraine has the main language marked as Ukrainian (small-russian), also in the East. One should let the people say what they want, but this has been asked: even in the separatist areas the majority did not want to join Russia. They wanted to remain in Ukraine as an area with autonomy.

    As Americans speak English, why should it be unreasonable for the UK to demand that the USA gives up regions of ethnic English (i.e., those who speak English) to the UK?

    Military Krajina (borderland) in Austro-Hungary was an uninterrupted Serbian ethnic area, stretched from Carpathian in Romania, through Vojvodina (northern Serbia), along the current Bosnia/Croatia border up to the Adriatic Sea. Some of these Serbs got from Russian Empress two areas in modern Ukraine to settle. First, they established New Serbia (1752), where only Serbs lived and who gave the names to their places from the old homeland. There are today several dozens of places with same names in Ukraine and Serbia. In the second settlement, Slavo-Serbia, Serbs were also a huge majority but the Serbian general who led the second migration (1753) accepted some other nationalities in this settlement.

    The current map of Croatia (with communists’ borders) looks like a horseshoe. That was the part of Military Krajina, consisted of Serbs, who were a majority within these borders at that time. Croats mostly lived outside of this Krajina and historically (this is an oxymoron because Croats did not have any history) Croatia was the area which could be seen from the hill above the city of Zagreb, and this is area which Croats brought from AH Empire to Yugoslavia in 1918. Before, one horseshoe branch was part of Austro-Hungary, while the other branch mostly belonged to the Venetian Adriatic coast. Inside the horseshoe was Bosnia under Ottoman Empire. Ethnically, the entire Krajina from both sides of the border was ethnically Serbian. There was a place in the middle of Serbian ethnic area where all three Empires (AH, Ottomans, Venetian) were adjoined.

    Btw, communists created today’s Croatia borders where the majority were Serbs. In 90ies, Croats wanted to exit Yugoslavia, but they wanted to take all Serbian ethnic areas and the entire Serbian Military Krajina, not only their ethnic areas. Because of this started a civil war. Before, during the ww2, Croats conducted the genocide and killed about 1.5 million of Serbs in today’s Croatia and Bosnia. In 90ies, with help from Nato, Croats ethnically cleansed Croatia by expelling almost all remaining Serbs.

    OK, you are Anonymous(236). I already gave you links to three maps to Anonymous(156), find this comment from me. If you can read the military situation from maps, those are all you need to study the counteroffensive. If you cannot, I will give you a very short summary of the situation:
    – Ukraine has forbidden giving any information of the movement of its troops in the Kherson area. Russians have not given any information of these movements (at least, nothing reliable). Therefore military maps do not show present changes and we have to use only hints that there are. These hints indicate that Ukraine counteroffensive is on-going and we better wait to the end of August before evaluating it, by that time there should be more information.

    I give the hits that there are:
    – Russia is moving forces from the Donbas area to the Kherson area in order to prevent the Ukraine counteroffensive. This shows that some kind of Ukraine counteroffensive is going on in the Kherson area.
    – Ukraine is destroying ammu and fuel depots in the Kherson area (also in Crimea) and command posts and bridges. These all cause logistical problems and shortage of ammunition for Russians. It may reduce Russian artillery power in Kherson area so much that Ukraine can attack with land forces in a matter of days or weeks.
    – Ukraine has got anti-radar ammunition, and probably long-range ammunition. These may be sufficient to suppress Russian airplanes and air defense for a sufficient time so that Ukraine can take local air superiority for some time and eliminate Russian artillery from a part of Kherson area.
    – Ukraine gets this month troops trained in UK, most probably capable of attack operations.
    – Ukraine has made local counterattacks in the Northern part of occupied Kherson and just under Izium. These can be seen in the maps.

    That is about what I can tell you now. For better information, call the Ukraine General Staff and ask them to reveal all their operations and plans to you. I am sure they will be more than happy to tell to a nice guy like you.

    I have no other information than from public sources, they do not clarify the issue. Ukraine both denies that it has anything to do with the explosions and admits that it was done by Ukraine partisans with Ukraine weapons, so a typical denial and admittance. From these we cannot even say if it actually was done by Ukrainians with HIMARS and 300 km range precision ammunition (which the USA says Ukraine does not have, but some press accounts say that Ukraine wil/may get). What I think is least likely (though possible) is that the explosions were an accident. Weapon depots do rarely blow up accidentally and Soviet-era ammunition may be unstable after so long time, but it is more likely that something set it up intenti0nally.

    The advantage has been on the Russian side since Feb. 24 and they still have several advantages. However, the attack in Donbass seems to come to a stalemate. Russia advanced 10 km in the last 30 days, so the advance is down from 1 km per day, which was already very low. Now Russia moves troops and weapons to Kherson and Ukraine is still getting more weapons and training troops, so I do not expect Russia can advance much in Donbass.

    About Russian successes, as I do not read Russian (only studied for one year), I do not follow Russian milbloggers. I sometimes follow Tass, but it is often not reliable as Russians claim taking areas that later turns out they had not yet taken. ISW analysists occasionally comment on Russian milbloggers. About the damage Russia is doing: it is clear that they are doing lots of damage with their artillery. Russian artillery (howitzers and rocket launchers) and missiles are the reason why Ukraine cannot more often make counterattacks. But as is seem already, Russia does not manage to destroy so much Ukrainian resources that it could make a breakthrough. The question we have is not whether Russia will make a breakthrough (it will not, we have seen it trying for months).

    The question is whether Ukraine with recently obtained weapons and recently mobilized troops will make a breakthrough in the Kherson area. By all calculations Ukraine is superior in number of soldiers: they had 200,000 in the peacetime army, they mobilized 500,000 conscripts, and have 300,000 territorial troops (militias, police, border guards organized as military units, but these are not regular military units, they are paramilitary, not trained for military operations and mainly can do defense and partisan actions, but the UK is now training these troops in UK). Together this is 1 million, but you have to subtract the losses. The total Ukraine losses may be about 60,000. This means that Ukraine has 900,000. Russia has 300,000. That is 3:1 ratio, which should give the ability to win. But there are the aspects of weapons, training, leadership where Ukraine has weaknesses. That is, so far, but the situation is changing. These are operational level issues. Strategic level issues speak of Ukraine advantage: it is backed by the stronger block, both in economy and in technology. Russia is under sanctions which will finally bite. Ukraine gets help and even if common people get tired of helping them, governments have made clear commitments, they will do it as they see that Russia is weaker than expected. Ukraine has a too large population to run out of men. Ukrainians have strong fighting spirit that so far has not been beaten and most probably will not. These strategic level issues mean that in the long run Ukraine should win.

    I think is is realistic to expect that there may come a turning point to this war, it may be this month. It is not certain, but I think it is probable. Ukraine has to find a way to eliminate Russian advantages, especially artillery and mines that at the moment prevent Ukraine counteroffences.

    “And Russia has stepped up missile production so that it produces more than it used up.”

    At the moment Russia is using S-300 land-to-air missiles (i.e., very expensive antiaircraft missiles) as land-to-land missiles shot at civilian buildings where Ukraine might have some military units, but usually does not. And Russia has used sea missiles (also very expensive antiship missiles) as land-to-land missiles and targeted civilian buildings where there might have been a military object, but was not. And Russia is shooting a hypersonic Kindzal missile (that is only has some dozens and which should be preserved for nuclear heads for the WWIII) to a minor military object and probably destroyed some thousand artillery ammunition (i.e., the missile was wasted on a low value object, Ukraine gets more of those ammunition). And Russia is using ballistic missiles that are too old and are shot down. So, it does not look good. What Russia is lacking is precision land-to-land missiles like Iskander. But Russian precision weapons usually require Western components that are under sanctions. In some time they would solve the problem, but is there so much time?

    This issue of a long war in order to weaken Russia is one of the ideas that are often presented in this forum. I do not buy it. The USA does not need to weaken Russia economically. Economically Russia is weak, on the level of Italy. With weapons the USA cannot weaken Russian nuclear weapons by any conventional war and Russia will remain a nuclear power. So, Russia needs not to be weakened in economy and cannot be weakened in the important part of military. What this war is, is not weakening Russia itself but weakening Russian aspirations to change the world order. The present world order where the USA is the sole superpower fits well to American aspirations. They do not want Russia to regain the position that the Soviet Union had, neither do any European countries want Russia to be strong again. This war in Ukraine is not about weakening Russia. It is stopping the Russian attack on Ukraine. As a result, Russia will not try it again. Russia may try it somewhere else, the USA will oppose it also somewhere else, but Europe will only condemn such efforts and will do nothing. As there is a difference if a war is in Europe or somewhere else. Europeans fought two world wars and do not want wars, but in Africa, Middle-East and other places people still like wars. That cannot be changed, but wars in Europe is no-go. Therefore there will not be a long war in Europe, it is no-go. Ukraine economy cannot support a long war. The West will make it so that Russia cannot support a long war in Europe. Nobody wants this long war in Ukraine. Therefore it will not be long. I think this war will practically end to the end of the year. Then comes negotiations of Crimea and separatist areas. Maybe there will be some fighting still next year, in the beginning, but the pressures to end this war will increase. But this can only happen if Russia withdraws from the areas it took after 24. Feb. The Western effort is to make this happen by helping Ukraine. As for somebody profiting from this war. Somebody always profits from a war, but a war costs very much. Too many important players lose too much money on this war. There is no economic sense to continue this war any longer than necessary.

    Mike, you can see the Ukraine counteroffensive easiest from the liveuamap (https://liveuamap.com/)
    There you have the clock symbol in the left of upper bar. Zoom to below Izium and compare the maps from July 15 and August 11 (today). That is the counteroffensive in Izium long ago announced by Ukraine, but finally getting going. Then zoom to the upper part of occupied Kherson area (zoom to Vysokopillia area). Then compare maps from May 15 to August 11. This is the Kherson counteroffensive so far. Vusokopillia is in some maps under Russian control, in some under Ukraine control. I think it is under Ukraine control because Russia shells sites close to Vysokopillia and once even the village itself, so it must be enemies of Russia there. Hope this helps. Admittedly the counteroffensive goes rather slowly, but not slower than Russian offensive in Donbass. Trench war is no blitzkrieg.

    The Russians are progressing slowly but steadily. It looks like their objective is to liberate Donbas the way they liberated Lugansk and it appears that this will be achieved despite the fierce Ukrainian resistance. One wonders why the Ukrainians are willing to sacrifice so many of their men for a hopeless cause of keeping some part of Donbass. Perhaps to slow the Russian progress as they may fear losing more territory elsewhere if they pull out, and also to allow themselves time to obtain arms, recruit and train for the counter-offensive.

    I think Ukrainians themselves stated that they had 190,000 troops put out of action so far.

    Counter-offensives can sometimes be lightning fast but if the Ukrainians were to achieve such progress then Russians would mobilise and launch an even more massive counter-offensive to push them back. Such has been the case in some previous wars.

    I am not so sure if those other areas are yet that important, to Russians at least. Perhaps they want to keep Ukrainian forces engaged elsewhere so that they can liberate Donbass with their numerically weaker force. After Donbass has been cleared of Ukrainian troops we’ll see how things develop further. If there are negotiations and Ukraine gives up Lugansk and Donbass then it could have done this a lot earlier without the need for such massive loss of life and destruction throughout the country. That’s why I think the war could be about a lot more than the Ukraine trying to keep hold of these areas.

    Russia’s objective is to destroy the Kiev regime’s capacity to wage war. That’s what they mean by “demilitarisation”. The only way to permanently incapacitate the Kiev regime’s military without outright turning the whole of Ukraine into rubble is the way they are doing it. Ukraine cannot win the war. Perhaps the retards in Kiev are unaware of it but everyone with a functioning brain is aware of it. Russia will do just what it takes to achieve the stated objectives. Not less, not more. Washington DC can stop the whole mess in a moment but Washington DC doesn’t give a sh*t if 3 million Ukrainian men die. The cabal wants to “weaken” Russia, regardless of the cost.

    Putin could end this war with a single command. You can’t blame Ukrainians for not wanting to live under a Russian dictator. If some half pint dictator ended elections and censored the internet in America you can expect that rural Americans would vote from the rooftops.

    The war never made any sense and his excuse keeps changing. First NATO, then Nazis and now Donbass. Well technically he first said that it was just a training exercise and his Unz lackeys believed him.

    Over 50k Russian men will be dead and at this point the best Putin can achieve is taking the ruins of Donbass.

    Russia has negative population growth and high rates of alcoholism and depression. It isn’t some model Christian nation. In fact Russia has a larger relative population of atheists, Jews and Muslims. Ukraine in fact has very few Jews.

    Putin could have built Russia up instead of tearing Ukraine apart. But he is a pathetic little man that doesn’t understand war or economics. Just a KGB paper pusher that slithered his way to the top and now is playing war Tsar…..poorly. Another Nicholas II.

    ATACMS is a inertia and GPS guided missile lounched from a rocket launcher such as M270. Ukraine got three M270 from the UK, we have no information what ammunition they got. Recently Ukraine got new ammunition of HIMARS, this ammunition may include ATACMS for all what we know. HIMARS can fire 300 km ATACMS missiles.

    From the satellite pictures taken before and after this strike one can see that three buildings have got an exact hit. That is also the opinion of military experts who have made statements. There is every reason to believe that Ukraine has obtained 300 km precision ammunition for rocket launchers. This ammunition is missiles, as you point out. I am no expert on weapon technology (only on C3 technology) but all websites claim that HIMARS can launch ATACMS. Check this one

    High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) — M142

    “The HIMARS carries one launch pod containing either six Guided MLRS (GMLRS)/MLRS rockets or one Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) missile.”

    “A senior US marine officer has published an analysis of the Russian mitary operation in the United States Marine Corps Gazette which is at odds with your own. He has nothing but admiration for the way the military operation is being conducted.”

    You do not specify who is the one in “at odds with your own”, but let me answer this. The worse than expected performance of Russian military is caused by the initial intelligence error, or actually Putin did get correct intelligence, but decided that he knows better. Putin expected that Ukrainians will not fight. Therefore he decided on a strategic strike, a special military operation that is fast and relatively bloodless for civilians. Russia did not even bring the electric grid down in this strategic strike, though it should be done, and Russian troops were initially told not to destroy civilian buildings. Civilians were even pushing a tank back. Thus, this was to be a special military operation, not a war. It was to achieve demilitarization (i.e., destruction of over 60% of Ukraine military power in the strategic strike in 2-3 weeks) and denazification (i.e., replacement of Ukraine leaders by ones, who are pro-Russia). This strategic strike failed because Ukraine army, which was expected to stay aside, did fight back. After this initial failure, advances to Ukraine cities, which initially were not to take the cities by force but simply to march in, were modified to attacks in seven fronts. These attacks were not prepared, as they were intended just to enter the cities with minor resistance by peoples militias (territorial defense troops). Therefore these attacking forces did not have enough ammunition, food, fuel with them, and as supply lines were not planned for a war, Ukraine managed to destroy supply lines and in several fronts Russians had to withdraw (in some fronts under heavy Ukraine artillery fire from Soviet-era howitzers). Russians had large losses and had Ukraine changed to counteroffensive at the end of April, it might have managed to push Russia back in several fronts, but Ukrainians were not ready for that and waited for Western weapons. That was a mistake, Russia planned an attack in Donbass. First Russians made the Donbass attack with too small forces, which was a Russian planning error, underestimating the enemy. They did not advance and the first deadline in May passed without success. Then Russia close a different way to approach, relying heavily on artillery. It has made small progress and is still making some, but at high cost and Ukraine has got Western weapons that have practically stopped the progress. Russian commanders on lower levels of hierarchy have been good all the time, but Russian High Command has not been up to the task: several high commanders have been changed, which clearly shows that Putin has not been satisfied by Russian efforts. This changing of high commanders has resulted in inconsistency in Russian strategy. Shelling and sending missiles to civilian buildings has not had the desired psychological effect, so it was a bad idea, initially coming from Putin who ordered missiles to be used. Russian Battalion Tactical Groups have basically succeeded well: it has not been possible for Ukraine to encirculate these relatively small and road-bound troops, which is a small surprise as the usual response to the Russian way of advancing along roads is to make a siege. But apparently it does not succeed in Ukraine, probably the terrain is not suitable. At the moment the situation does not look good for Russia.

    Go to Kherson front. You have a magnification lense in this map. Count the BTGs in the Russian side (they have | | | | on the top of a tank symbol). There are 7 BTGs and one airborne battalion, if this map is correct. Look at the Ukraine forces, X is a brigade. There are 6 brigades, an artillery regiment and two battalions. If these forces are correct, Ukraine has some 20,000 men against 5000 in this area. (But the map need not be correct, anyway the author of the map knows more than you or me of this war). Russians can only rely on barring artillery bombardements and mines to prevent Ukraine counteroffensive. Ukraine has not started a major offensive and seems to try to run Russians out of artillery ammunition by attrition warfare and by destroying depots. This front should go to Ukraine if troop sizes matter at all. That Russians can hold this ground shows that they have a good army. But finally sizes matter. Bridges are broken, these troops are separated. Let us wait and see. So far Russians are trying to attack also in this front, that’s something.

    You do not specify who is the one in “at odds with your own”

    The author used a pseudonym, so no, I don’t know who he is. Do you think it could be Scott Ritter?

    “Do you think it could be Scott Ritter? ”

    No idea. Anyway, leaving politics aside, this is a very interesting war. You notice that it is not a mobile war, while since WWII militaries have believed in mobility and firepower. Now mobility is out, it is again trenches. Airforce has very minor role, though there are close air support airplanes (i.e., bombers), they are hardly used as dive bombers of WWII, they stay close to the font and only make fast raids. There is no airsuperiority concept. This is because air defense missile systems are too good, we are going to replacing fighter jets with drones, that is clear. The same is with main battle tanks, they are going to be replaced, in this war they are mainly destroyed. Precision ammunition and antitank weapons are too good. This is a totally different war than what was expected. What was expected by some was large tank battles and battle of airspace, Mobility, no trenches. Nothing of that type. But artillery will also finally go away, but not yet in this war. Now it is precision, protection, situation awareness and surprisingly, attrition.

    The Russians can place their artillery on the east side of the Dneiper while lighter forces sit in Kherson, they can mow down Ukies who dare to advance into Kherson. There’s no room to outflank Kherson. It requires a full frontal attack against a city prepared to fight.

    This is how you Jews do it. Say a couple of agreeable things then…

    “In Ukraine there are very few Jews”

    Ukraine has a Jewish head of state you fuckin liar. It’s famously Jew run going back to Trotsky and Kaganovich and that dumb Odessa.

    Destroying ammo dumps would mostly hamstring offensives. And only then immediate offensives. Ukies have been paralysed most of the war so you know that they’ve had their depots repeatedly smashed.

    Ukraine has 45k Jews in a population of 44 million.

    There are more Jews in Hollywood.

    Ukraine has a Jewish head of state you fuckin liar.

    LOL so a head of state somehow changes statistics? Even Argentina has more Jews.

    I work with data while you are obviously ruled by your emotions and swayed by anecdotal cases.

    Maybe do some reading outside of Anglin’s Jew blaming zone before calling people names.
