Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes! So gonna be out on Med Leave for a day or two. Getting the eyeball done, with the other sometime ‘after’… depends on how #1 goes. I already filled in the Politburo, and they’re cool with it
So, in keeping with yesterday’s footlockers, I realized there was another gift that Gretchen had gotten me when we had -first- started dating. At the time I was still smoking occasionally, so she found and got me an ashtray.
Mind you, not an ordinary ashtray. I have -no idea- where she found it, but man, there’s cool and then there’s very fucking cool:
In keeping with her taste mind you… She’s got a ‘thing’ for the 1940s pin-up stuff. I say that she was born too late.
The ashtray came from Duncan Ceramic Studios, of Fresno California, and was made in 1949:
Now, as it -is- an antique and in outstanding condition, I never used it as an ashtray. It’s just too damned pretty. Instead, I reutilized it… Meet, as we call it around the Casa, “The Butter Babe”
Works like a charm!
The knife slide under the legs, keeping it in place. Hand washed only, I mean hell, how much cooler a butter dish could you ask for Aye? I’ve looked and continue to look for either duplicate, or something similar, but man, they just aren’t out there… even on eBay there isn’t anything quite as nice as that out there.
Again, file this under “Shit that makes me smile/happy”
Everything can’t and should not be all Doom and Gloom 24-7-365. There’s enough of that already, as anyone could or would tell you.
Even if it’s as stupid as a video like this of a couple of Chikinz that someone threw up on TikTok. Gretchen strikes again with this one:
I have NO IDEA why that cracks me up so hard, but it does.
Maybe it’s just that it’s that stupid maybe? Tough call, but I’ll take all the laughs I can get. As should we all.
Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes! I got this from Wirecutter’s place, seems the guy who runs The Daily Gator is in need of some assistance. Per Wirecutter:
“If you can see your way to join me in donating a few bucks to help out a fellow Patriot, I know it will be appreciated. Times are tough and it sounds like Doug could use a helping hand.”
And per Doug:
My name is Doug, and my mother has decided to cease her dialysis treatments. I have been her caregiver for four years, since my dad passed away in 2019. I have not worked since 2019 because mom has needed full time care, which I have provided in our home and we have been living on her Social Security benefits.
When she passes away, her benefits will cease, and I will very soon run out of money to live on. I was just beginning to apply for Medicare and Disability for me, so, it will be a few weeks before I can begin supporting myself. Our bank account is low, and the final expenses will likely deplete it entirely.
Frankly, I need some help, and would be grateful for any help you can give.
God bless and thank you very much
Now his GoFundMe is HERE As I well know from experience, every lil bit helps, especially when family is involved. So, there it is.
So, the Krainian Klown that I referenced in the lede?
Seems our favorite ‘Murican Born Crazy As Fuck Wannba-Whammenz, Sarah Ashton-Cirillo, who used to be a dude named Michael John Cirillo, well… besides being a fucking full bore psychopath, some new news that may or may not be related to It’s suspension from being the Krainian English Speaking Spokesthing has surfaced:
Yep That’s about right Nothing these days phases me, nor surprises me. It makes sense however, as most of the fucking loons are known for having exceptionally dangerous sexual practices. Getting the HIV? Par for the course IMO. Deviants gonna deviate I suppose…
Now, as far as the rest of this weekend, or at least -today- I spent it cleaning up and painting some footlockers. About a month ago, Gretch was surfing the Fecesbook marketplace, and found a couple of old army footlockers for sale. An anniversary gift… been together 7 years at the end of August… Mind you, she didn’t tell me… just up and bought ’em. I was mad surprised and she told me she only paid $50 for the two. They’re in great shape too! The only problem with them was someone had done a shit-job of painting them. Like covered up the original stenciling that was common to them…
I did manage to clean off a dataplate and date one of them:
Post war… like RIGHT after WW2… these were from the Korean War timeframe. Made in 1946. I know this as there was a old label on it stating that it was “Locker #2 of 5” and the destination was Sasebo Air Base in Japan… I unfortunately couldn’t save the label as it fell apart to itty bitty pieces when I tried to remove it… that being said… Cool huh? So the paint job sucked… it was all nasty and fucked, and as much as I wanted to try to clean them up to the original, I just ran out of patience, and broke out the rattle can(s) and hit them both. Now the OD I’m using is period-correct, Color Number 33070 Early WWII Flat Olive Drab…
The only issue I have with it is Rapco paint takes forever to dry, and it’s sort of -thin- which means it takes a number of coats to get it done right. Personally, I think they came out OK:
Only thing that does suck is they’re both missing the internal trays. Sucks in that they’re not complete, BUT… I’m using them to store spare tactical gear… like they’re both full the hell up. Who knew I had so much shit? I got more pouches in ALL colors than I care to admit…
Anyways, the latches on them are intact, as well as the internal hinges, the lock hasp, everything. The one on the bottom is missing the dataplate, and otherwise, they’re both perfect. All the rivets are good, as well as the metal banding.
Funny that when I looked on eBay, like WOW again!
$175 plus $75 for shipping??? With a broken/missing right hasp? Maybe I should sell these? Hard to call it… the problem is the shipping… these things are heavy even when empty. “Stout” is the word that comes leaping to mind. That and Wifey might get upset that I I sold her anniversary gift.
So tomorrow, I have to do almost a full day of work, as when I tried to log in, I got the ‘system maintenance’ messages… I should have known. The IT Commissar always does his ‘stuff’ on the weekends… ah well…
Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes! Now, a whooole lotta interesting things to go over, some related, some not so much. More like a list of ‘things that caught my eye’ today and over the past few.
Call it the Friday Afternoon Round Up.
So, first off, found a guy recommended by Simplicius76 on his substack, namely Dr. Rob Campbell’s stack. Guy does a pretty good job, and is added to my ‘regular read’ list now. Link to it is HERE. He had a pretty good write up this A.M. and some pics and breakdowns vis-a-vis the whole Krainian Klownkar Show.
One of the things that caught my attention was a picture of Andreevka, a ville located just outside of Artyomovsk, AKA Bahkmut. The location that was broadcast far and wide as touting the Krainian Kounteroffensive as being “Great” and “Successful AF” as well as “Unstoppable“… the way they (The various Ministries of Lies and Propaganda) were spinning it up, this was a Major Coup and showed just how winning the Glorious Armed Farces of the Krain were doing against the Russian Orcs… that the “Stunning” and “Brave” farces of the Krainian DotMil ‘rescued’ the town from the Godless Invaders…
Included in the write up was a picture of the town…
Yeeeeeeeeeeeeah… With ‘wins’ like this, who needs a loss? Mind you, this’s a Krainian Town “Rescued” Heh It did, however, positively SCREAM at me for a meme:
Appropriate Aye? Figure the reason the Russians left was there was literally nothing left to fight over… even the rubble has rubble, and I’d say that is the very definition of “obliterated” i.e. erased… gone, done, el finito. Even Carthage wasn’t so thoroughly thrashed I’d reckon…
And then, over at Art Sido’s place, he did a nice write up on how Krainfeld was ‘spun’ by the Ministry of Lies and Propaganda when he addressed the UN… his poast is HERE. The TL;DR is that when they showed Krainfeld at the podium, they used old footage of the General Assembly listening earlier to Krainfeld do his “Putin is Hitler, give me shekels Goyim!” shtick… problem is you could tell that they used old footage ‘cos Krainfeld himself is in the Audience apparently listening to himself drone on! WOW! Talk about ‘not sending your best/low effort retards’ IRL, the audience (which I found on PBS) was actually this:
Quite the difference Aye? Looks like everyone is tired of that grifting lil fucker… Jes’ Sayin’ And speaking of ‘not sending their best’…
Seems that Kumdumpster Karen AKA Kameltoe Hairyass, has been named the head of the new ‘White House Orifice (sarc) of Gun Violence Prevention’:
Well consider me relieved…
Seeings how every single thing that this fucktard touches goes completely and utterly sideways like a motherfucker as well as pear-shaped, I’d say it’s safe to say that we don’t have a hell of a lot to worry about… this broad is too stupid to even know which end of a weapon the bullets come out of, so I’d say this might be a good thing. I mean she’s doing such a bang up job on the Border amiright?
Then, back to the Krain for a moment. Seems that we might have an idea what Russia’s plan for the winter is, which looks like “Make them freeze to death in the fucking dark.”
According to multiple sources, they (the Russians) blew the ever-loving-shit out of a metric fuckton of Krainian power infrastructure over the past 48 hours… most of which is probably going to be non-recoverable.
Yep. “No Power/Heat For You!” It’s looking grim for Krainfeld… he only went home with the consolation prize of 300mil as opposed to the ‘retirement’ level funds of 24 billion he was demanding. That’s barely enough for him and his wife to settle in back in Israel. Damned shame eh?
And lastly, again, in keeping with the whole ‘not sending our/their best:
According to the article HERE, 17 Geniuses got caught mailing and/or selling “Spice” also called “K2″… that fake synthetic Weed… now, not for nothing, I personally think it’s bullshit, as there’s drugs, and then there’s drugs. That shit is fake assed bullshit, no matter how you ‘class’ it… However, the South Koreans are hardcore when it comes to smuggling as well as illegal drugs. So, that essentially means those guys are toast.
Ahhh the DotMil of today… gotta love it. As I’ve said before, and I’ll keep saying, Thank God I’m out. So More Later Big Country
Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes! So over the years of being DotMil and a DotGov Contractor, I collected (much like all of y’all) a bunch of patches and whatnot. I also have a few posters and ‘things’ that I’ve gotten, the majority from Gretchen as gifts as well as the occasional out-of-the-blue ‘cool thing’ that Sapper finds while surfing the web.
In my case, a few weeks back, Gretchen found a BIG ziplock bag in one of the closets. Turns out it was my BIG bag of patches. I had shown you guys some of my patches that’d come out of the medium size bag… I mean it’s pretty funny when you have literally a multiplicity of bag(s) of patches floating around Aye? Well the BIG one was buried in the walk in closet at the back… I swear that must be the “Singularity” of the house there… ALL my missing shit seems to end up there…
Anyways, I finally got around to getting a ‘patch board’ which is about 3.5 feet by 2.5 feet… its a fuzzy-side of the velcro blanket essentially, with grommets. Found it on the ‘Zon HERE (and yeah, I get a ‘taste’ if one of y’all buy one). It came in a few days ago, so I went and dug out all the patches. I had to eliminate the duplicates, unless they were specifically different, I.E. the 101st and 1st Cav Patches, besides the Class A Color Patches, also have the Infrared Patches on the board as well…
Took a while but man, I personally love it.
And yeah, I have more, but some of them are on my Tactical EDC bag, on my briefcase, which is a 5.11 tac-laptop bag, and some are on my vast collection of hats.
The patches underneath all the nametapes are the Units I supported. 1st Armored, 94 ARCOM, 18th ABN Corps. 4th ID… the ‘usual suspects’ so to speak. The top middle are MY unit patches from the ones I served in, 101st, 7th ATC OPFOR, and 187th Infantry Brigade (Reserve).
Plus of course my 187th Regimental Combat Team patches. RAKKASAN!!! Below that are my Affy Patches, which I showed you guys a ways back on the wordpress site. Then next to and underneath them, starts the Morale Patches and traded patches. That one with the Saint Christopher Cross, the Confederate “Stars n Bars”
I got BEFORE they had to stop selling them ‘cos “rayyyycism” and “reeeeasons” and sheeeeit. Not that anyone genuinely cared, but a couple of Nogs threw a fit, and the Chain of Command outlawed them. I got lucky and had bought it before the ban. The Kenny patch is funny b/c by the time I left, they had it up to “You sent me to Iraq 4 Times!”
Then the ‘other’ banned patch:
Again, another one that caused mad butt-hurt…
Now that lil Canadian Crown is interesting, in that I traded it from one of 4? I think Canadian Observers in Iraq. As in there were four Canadians, in Iraq in total. Leastways that’s what they told me. Guys were winding down too and getting ready to leave, so we worked a trade, and I got that ‘un for the collection.
In the Morale patch arena, Sapper found and got me this one:
More truth in that than I care to think about… After watching that video of the Fed questioning that guy at his front door, and then offering to pay him to be an informant… I mean really!?! It’s out there at multiple sites, but essentially, the Feds show up, never really state -why- they’re there, and then tell him that IF he’s got info on ‘suspicious people’ that they’re willing to pay him to give them up.
That right there is going to cause a WHOOOLE lot of problems in the very near future I think. Figuring that the current (mal)Administration is convinced that whytte sooperpreemiecycts are the #1 Terror Threat, and that the Feebles are out actively offering $$$ in a seriously fucked economy, that they’re going to get just what they asked for which is neighbors ratting out each other for cash, left and right.
Which is going to lead to the same exact problem(s) we had in Iraq and Afghanistan. Initially, like 75% of the ‘bad guys’ that got ‘turned in’ by neighbors or ‘other folks’ were people who the Narc either owed money to, or wanted their land, or had some other dispute with the guy who got snatched… Bunch of innocent guys caught up, for money, to ‘pad’ the number of ‘terrorists’ that the “Good Guys” (i.e. the DotMil) had caught…
Essentially people are going to start ‘making up shit’ in order to get that sweet, sweet filthy lucre, despite it destroying whomever they turn ins lives… and proving your innocent? Look at them poor fuckers from J6… what? almost 3 years for most of them, no trial, and the majority of them NOT what I’d call any sort of ‘real insurrectionist’… The whole of the J6 narrative stinks like Hillaroid’s unwashed coochie. Those people have no idea what a real insurrection looks like… not that we have to worry though…
Seems Sergey Lavarov just gave what -I- consider a ‘final warning’ to the US, as well as our GAE Minions… that we (our countries that is) haven’t been hit yet, and that the Russians are about to change that up a bit… I’m paraphrasing quite a bit, but essentially, the Russians now see the proxy war as a US Versus Them, and that it’s time to teach the US and it’s Minions a lesson in pain and suffering…
Not for nothing, but when you read that the United States has been involved in over 200 shooting war(s)/incidents/proxy “things” since like 1945, and Russia has been involved in 20 or less in the same time period, one has to ask
Uhh… yeah… I’ll leave it at that. The next few days are going to be light as I get the surgery on Monday and I’m front-loading my work over the weekend so I don’t miss any hours, as I already burned out the vay-kay for this year… So More Later Big Country
Greeting me Droogs N Droogettes! Just a short one as I sliced open the tip of my pointy finger, one of the two I use to type with. Cut it w/out even noticing when I opened my Box o’ Coffee Brand Coffee K-Cups that I’ll review tomorrow. Get yours on the link in the right side of Ye Olde Blog with 10% off with the Coupon “NTJ”!!! I get a teeny taste of any purchases FWIW.
So, yeah, the latest sign of all the winning?
So yeah, Females getting drafted. That’s bad What’s even worse?
Pregnant women? OK, granted that the US DotMil has preggers Uniforms for the females, however… if you read this article and others, not only are they making uniforms but body armor.
Not for nothing, but uh… any US DotMil females who are ‘in the fambly way’ are generally exempt from deployments, and/or anything that could even be considered ‘hard work’. No way in hell would even the pozzed out US GAE DotMil expect, or even design a set of body armor capable of being worn by a pregnant chick.
As far as I’m concerned, this’s criminal to the extreme.
Just like all them healthy members of the SBU who seem to take such enthusiastic pleasure in rounding up folks for the meatgrinder. Seen a couple of vidyas of people turning the tables on the Krainian Recruiters and curbstomping them into oblivion. Funny how these (((guys))) all seem to have made a pile of cash, and are riding around in premium rides (I saw one with a guy driving an H2 Civvie Hummer) and somehow still not on the front line themselves? Funny how that works huh?
And for the final few, first, I need to re-record this with the Benny Hill song on it… “Yakkity Sax” I think is what it’s called:
This goes under “Nowhere to Run…” AGAIN And then lastly, I’ll leave the video of the FSB (Russian KGB/FBI) snatching a spy… according to reports, “…
a citizen of Russia, born in 1981, proactively reached out to citizens of Ukraine through social networks, in communication with whom he began to express radical views on the political course of the Russian Federation and readiness to support the Ukrainian armed forces.
As proof of his intentions, Vyrus poisoned the water intended for mobilized military personnel. He filmed the entire process on video, which he sent to representatives of Ukraine involved by the SBU to recruit Russian citizens for the purpose of organizing sabotage and terrorist acts on Russian territory.
A criminal case has been opened against Vyrus for attempted treason and terrorism. He was charged and taken into custody.”
What interesting is the very last 2-3 seconds of the video… notice something on the wall?
Indeed These days? Yep… nowhere to run to, nowhere to hide baby…
Found some vidyas courtesy of Simplicius76 on his substack. They’re all shot from the perspective of observation drones (for the most part). a couple of them are drones that appear to be dropping small mortar shells, my guess is 50mm as it’s the smallest mortar round they got with a weight of 1.8 pounds in total. These drones also seem to have “Laze and Blaze” capacity, in that a lot of the Artillery shells that are being dropped land -right- where the crosshairs of the drones Point of View is looking, meaning they’re probably laying a laser designator on the target, allowing the Russians to pinpoint the targets for elimination.
That one is about 5 minutes long, I personally would hit mute as it’s got some cheesy 90’s ballad going on for a soundtrack… The next one is an absolute horrorshow 3 and a half minutes of guys getting blow’d up. Looks like a bunker, with about 2-3 Krainians in the bunker, with two guys in the open. The drone looks down, and it’s pretty obvious that the operator passed on word “Troops in the Open, fire for effect!” It gets bad… just to warn y’all NSFW for damned sure…
It looks like the Russians start of with a stonk of probably 82mm Mortars… they bracket the fuck out of them, and the two dudes in the open? Yeeeah… it’s bad. Then as they’re obviously fucked up, what I really think is worse? Their buddies in the dugout/bunker? Yeah, they don’t come out to help. I’ll leave it to you to watch and reach your own conclusions.
Thing of it is, one issue I have is that I’ve been watching a lot of these videos. The number of videos of Krainians being obliterated versus Russians catching hell is like 30-40 to 1. Meaning that there are vids of Russians getting blow’d up, but nowhere at the frequency that you find vids of Krasinians kicking ass…
Add on another disturbing observation of mine: A LOT of the videos show what looks like a staggered line of Krainian Grunts hoofing it down either a trail or a hardball when “all of a sudden” >ERF SHATTERING KABOOM!< An arty shell hits, and one or two, maybe three guys go down… The rest of the squad hit the dirt and wait. One dude ain’t moving, closest to the point of impact Call him KIA The other two? Flailing around, obviously fucked up. The squad? Yeeeeah, more often than not, they seem to go over and collect the squad weapon(s) IF the guys hit were carrying the RPK/PKM or RPG… then they leave them behind!!!NO MEDEVAC!!!No helping/First Aid attempts!!! Nothing but PURE Blue-Falconry (A Blue Falcon in the DotMil, in the Army in particular, means that a BF is a “Buddy Fucker”)
In fact I’ve seen this sooo often, no fucking wonder no one in their right mind in the Krain wants to be in their DotMil… fucking guys in these videos, shot via drone (meaning the video itself) guys getting hit, and the survivors show them ‘hatting up’ and unassing the A.O. with a quickness, leaving their buddies to die…
Just like in the vid above (#2). Granted, it became obvious at the end that that bunker/dugout wasn’t worth a shit when they dropped that BIG shell (probably a 152mm) on it, but still…
There was enough of a break in fire that someone could have gone out and at least dragged them poor fucked up sumbitches into the hole in the ground, and patched them up, instead leaving them outside to get continually blown to shreds and die outside.
That’s another reason the Krainians are getting slaughtered in wholesale lots. You may not believe in your Country. You may not believe in the reason for the War. You may even have Zero Beef with the Russians and sympathize with them. BUT, when all else fails you fight and possibly die for the guy to your left, and the guy to your right. Your Brothers in Arms. You may not even like some of them motherfuckers, but you know what? In the Infantry, you’ll go down fighting to help and/or save one of them.
Leastways that’s the way -I- was ‘brought up’ It’s readily apparent that the fucktard Krainians don’t feel that way about each other. At ALL No unit cohesiveness… no comradery… no Brothers in Arms That right there means they’re fucking doomed.
Telling ya, the Krainains are their own worst enemy. Russia doesn’t have to do shit Between that, and their cowardly and corrupt leadershit? And from what I see, a complete lack of unit cohesiveness I give them maybe til February/March.
Another subzero Winter in the trenches, without food, low on ammo, no armor/artillery/tracks and being constantly shelled by Ivan, while their “Commanders” sit 5-8 miles behind the lines in comfort? I’d say that we’ll not hear about it from OUR Ministries of Lies and Propaganda, but watch for mass surrenders and/or mutinies. Russia Times (RT) and Spunik will break the news… They (the Krainians) won’t be able to hide it long. That and watch for Krainfeld and his Koterie of Thugs and Thieves to bow out and bail to either Tel Aviv or Florida, although Florida, got me a hunch he won’t be welcome here…
OH! Another thing I found! Seems the much vaunted Stryker?
Judging from the lack of damage to the wheels, it either took a top-down arty round or a direct fire tank/ATGM/RPG round. Doesn’t look like a mine took that out… I’d say no one got out of that alive. And considering I screenshot that, it was burning quite furiously… badly enough to have me question again everything we were told about the ‘new and improved fire-resistant surviable‘ Stryker’ and how it ‘…was an improvement over the Bradley!’
In what sense? That it was made out of Laminated Gasoline? Sweet Jeebus that thing burns like a motherfucker…. Like I said, Infantry and the means to carry the Infantry to the field of battle? Yeah, it’s over for now… Jes’ Sayin’
Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes! Sorry for missing Sunday’s poast, but after the Red Headed Nuclear-Powered Firestorm, both Wifey n me were wiped the hell out. The very fact I was able to get up and be even operational is credited to running first thing this AM to the Gas n’Go for Monster Ultras… yeah two of them caffeinated hand grenades. Haven’t been able to get back to the Dollar Tree to pick up some RipIts… -yet-.
The Memes have been brutal AF about the Marines ‘losing’ an F-35 just North of Charleston:
Seems Sunday afternoon, the pilot had -something- go wrong badly enough that he had to punch out. Seems before he did so, he turned on the autopilot. Link HERE
So now, I guess the name of the plane must have been “Waldo” as in everyone is asking: “Where’s Waldo!?!” The DotMil put out a tweet or so asking for the public’s help in locating the plane, ‘cos apparently they don’t know where it is!
As the Critical Drinker would say:
Let me get this straight… An 80 million dollar aircraft Known as the “Flying Turducken” or “The Turd” 80 fucking million dollars, and they don’t even have the fucking thing LoJacked!?! My car is fucking LoJacked FFS.
Again, there’s that whole “competency” thingy again we keep going on about. Getting to the point of “What’s not to believe?” The DotGov, as well as the DotMil it seems could fuck up organizing an Orgy in a Bangkok Whorehouse with a Suitcase full of $100s… Only thing we can do at this point is Laugh.
Somehow, I suspect ‘Muh Diversity’ played a role in this cockup. Any bets?
Tell you what, this’s gonna play pure hell on the sales figures, as the Belgians, the Finns, the Norwegians, from what I understand they ALL signed up to ‘donate’ their old F-16s and then buy the newest, bestest greatest all-around fighter aircraft evvar built! It does Mach 2, can shoot itself down, and slices, dices and can make julienne fries! It’s stealth capability is sofucking good, our own guys can’t find it!!!
Sorry… that’s a -lot- of sarcasm in one statement Aye?
Seriously. It’s like God has looked down on us, and is just like -waiting- to find the “New Noah” and hit the ‘smite’ button for this weak-sauce country… can’t say I’d blame him at this point.
Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes! So commenter “Dan” seems to be ‘balls deep’ in the “Teh Russians are losing!” line of propaganda. In many comments he makes the case that “Russia ain’t shit”. OK… Based off that exact hypothesis, how do you say that?
Your own comment: “…the fact that Russia hasn’t rolled them up and finished this in the 18 months this shit show has been going on is elegant proof that Russia is and has long been a paper bear…” makes me exactly wonder where you’re getting your intel from? I mean me? I only have multiple connections (professional and personal) from ‘days gone by’ (also known to me as “the days of Wine and Roses”) who’ve been keeping me ‘in the loop’ for both personal, as well as professional courtesy, so I know which way I need to jump.
Which BTW, is what we in the real world called a ‘hint’… if this place, as well as the substack goes perma-dark, it means I headed to greener, safer pastures. Jes’ Sayin’.
The major problem, as I tried to outline yesterday, perhaps poorly, is that there are a NUMBER of people who, despite the world changing, cannot get past their own personal prejudices when it comes to Russia, and by extent, the Russian DotMil.
Hell, I grew up with the LAST of the “Cold Warrior” mindset… when I went to Bayonet training, we were told we were DICKs… Dedicated Infantry Communist Killers. Old habits, it appears to ‘die hard’ so to speak.
I mean reality? Yeah… Faaaar too many people programmed for faaaar too many years, especially the fucking Boomers (and NO no boomer-defense comments will be allowed… insta-block, especially since this isn’t necessarily a negative) who were, as a whole, brainwashed into a “Hate/Kill a Commie For Mommie” from the get-go. Never met Aesop IRL, however, his railing against Russia stinks of Boomerism. Add on from what I know of when he served (1980s, early 80s), and yeah, Brainwashed Anti-Russian Marine… not normally a bad thing but these days? In light of our new reality? Best to tone it down IMO.
Mainly because for all the trash-talk going on, the reality is? Right now, despite the “cheerleading” going on, do you REALIZEwhat’s ACTUALLY HAPPENING!?!
All these ‘talking heads’… All these ‘former DotMil’ experts… All these ‘former Generals’ from all over… Even worse? All these ‘foreign policy experts’?
Do you know the one thing that ALL OF THEM HAVE OVERLOOKED!?!
Let me fill you in dear reader.
It’s that no matter what, no matter how insignificant the interaction is, be it a firefight at a squad level, a minor Tank-on-Tank Battle in a minor village, or a larger fight between massed units, The Russians Have Gained Combat Experience That The West Can Only Dream Of.
The Russians are Fucking Blooded Now.
Even at the height of our US DotMil “War on Terror” we only had the smallest amount of troops who’d “seen the Elephant” as Kipling would call it. Active shooters so to speak… Not fucking many of them as I well know… These Russian kids/troops, the ones who have survived are the betters of those who didn’t. Consider my own commentary regarding this current conflict, let me tell you, a Grunt who’s lived this long is FAR better than his non-living predecessors… like as in “Who’s your Daddy?” better. Trained, Blooded, and Experienced.
Oh FML if I were still in….
Add on the fact that the folks out there keep using the Russian experiences in Affy, as well as the Georgian conflict, as well as Chechnya as examples of Russia getting their asses kicked. And they keep using them unironically. Tell you what, when you look at the US DotMil record, they need to sit down, and shut up.
OK, with turnabout being fair play, I’d call Korea (draw) Vietnam (loss) Lebanon (loss) Iran (Operation Eagle Claw, loss) Libya (50/50 win/loss) Grenada (win) Persian Gulf and Gulf War I (win but a lot of give and take) Panama (win) Bosnia (loss) Somalia (loss) Gulf War 2 Iraq and Afghanistan “Retards Strike Again” (Both Loses)
Overall, if you notice in the ‘win’ category of the US DotMil, it’s all penny-ante itty-bitty NON major-players involved. And no, don’t want to hear how Iraq was “…the 5th largest military evvvvar!!!” I was there, it’s a bunchabullshit. Numbers are great, but when the numbers are made up of ‘hastily recruited’ ground troops (“Join us or we shoot your children!”) you don’t get a DotMil worth a fuck all at all…
Nope, the US DotMil has not gone up against a peer rival since either Korea (the Joe Chinks) or since World War Two…(Japs and Krauts) your choice… either way, the thing that makes/has me somewhat nervous is the very fact that right now?
You couldn’t write a better script for the Russians to take every. single. country. in. Europe. right now. Think on it objectively.
LITERALLY The Germans, the Dutch, The Austrians, the Belgians, hell, everyone just ’emptied the cupboard’ to send everything to the Krainians. ALL the artillery, all the artillery shells, all of the spare tanks, parts and even the secondary reserve tanks. Every. One. Of. These. Morons. just opened up their borders IF Ivan is feeling really frisky.
And they have no ability to refill those deficits. Not only that, but by all accounts, even the “Great ‘Murican Arsenal of Democracy” is looking a mite burned out at this point…
In fact THAT is what worries me most, as more and more reports ‘slip out’ showing that the current Intel that the “Big Bois” like fucking Milli Vanilli are using, as well as ALL the intel services BESIDES some elements of the DIA and NRO are trying like fuck to point out that the Krainians are fucking over…done with… through… finished.. However, because the limpcock mouth breathing Pedophile we currently have as the primary stakeholder in this unreal shytteshow is still nominally “in charge” we ain’t going to see no changes.
‘Cos right now? Putin has, by my count a quarter of a million blooded, combat experienced troops available to him, whereas, we got the 69th Non-Binary Intersectional Dildo Brigade available as a foil…
Yeaaaaaah It doesn’t look good for the ‘home team’ IMO
God I hope someone puts a bullet or cruise missile in Krainfelds ass sooner, rather than later, this bloodbath needs to stop. More Later Big Country
Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes! Got us a Fire-Headed Nookular Gran running up and around this place for the weekend… as stated by the majority of us who’ve dealt with hyper-kinetic-5 year olds “Just where do they get that energy from, and how do we harness it?”
Far be it from me to wonder… OMG… picked her up, got her to the house and >Trumpet Flourish TAAA-Daaah!< “Annnnnd she’s off!” Both cats came out for lovin’s and immediately the Sausage Princess dragged her for a walk and a poop. Poop for the doggo, leastways I -hope- only the doggo dropped, there have been shall we say awkward convos in the past when she was in her “Lets get nekkid and run around the neighborhood” at three…
So, as far as the usual bidness, I ordered me up some coffee as I had to wait til payday. Then I went over to Aesop’s place and found a meme that I think was intended for those of us who’ve been watching the Kraine situation:
He referenced the “…shit flinging poo-monkeys” which I dunno if I per se qualify but the thing of it is this, and this’s the part that I think he’s failing to grasp.
Right now, by ALL Sources, EVERYONE from Emperor Poopypants to the tardoes in Not-So-Great-Britainstan have pretty much acknowledged that the Krainians got their collective heads positively handed to them since the kickoff of the Kounteroffensive, To the point they can’t even field a complete combat Brigade. Out of 12 Challenger 2s delivered, they lost Two of Three that were committed to battle. And they were committed because they were absolutely out of anything else. In fact, the Brits were almost adamant that, after the embarrassing failure(s) of the Leo 2s in toe-to-toe fighting, they didn’t want their precious Challenger 2s to suffer the same ignominy.
Bad for business eh wot?
Thing that Aesop is running on, is that he seems to think that we expect the Russians to keep trying to take territory… that the HUUUGE gaaainz they (the Krainians) made in the summer of 22 were due to the “outmoded, inept and worthless conscripted Russian Army” running away. Since then, that’s been proven to be a fantasy story cooked up by the various Ministries of Propaganda and Lies pushing the story that the Krainians were on the march, and it was only a matter of time until they “drove the Orcs” out.
Thing is, now reading actual after action reports, the Russians engaged in a layered tactical withdrawal, and once in place, hardened the fucking Areas to the point that now? Why move forward when the enemy is oh-so-determined to break themselves on your defensive teeth? Sit back, shift fire, shell the fuck out of them, give ground when appropriate, and let them grind themselves to dust against a layered defense that makes the Siegfried Line look like a minor speed bump.
“Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance” Sun Tzu
I’d say the Russians have that down…
“Invincibility lies in the defense; the possibility of victory in the attack.” Sun Tzu (again)
And considering both quotes are, IMO dead on, the unbelievable arrogance and stupidity of the Krainians, combined with the unyielding defense that the Russians have set up, per the meme from yesterday regarding the “gaaaainz” that the Kounteroffensive have made?
Yeah… need a magnifying glass… I mean not for nothing, they are trying however, the current SMO units are going to be rotating at the end of this month. 240,000 troops being relieved in place. Now normally, a rotation like that is done piecemeal, as some of the inbound units haven’t been fully ‘blooded’ yet, and the chances of enemy action to disrupt shit is high during these changeovers.
The fact that Russia is open about it tells me that they’re not especially worried about the Krainians anymore, leastways as a ground effective cohesive combine arms force. Plus the fact that they just started fielding the new FAB-1500 glide bomb.
That there is a FAB-500. Essentially, Ivan took an old 500 pounder ‘dumb bomb’ (think of the bombs falling out of WW2 Bombers and such) and strapped a wing-and-guidance package to it. Turned it into a guided glide bomb. Problem with them is that the primary launch vehicle has been the Mig-31.
Problem is a Mig-31 needs a hella-long runway to take off from. It was designed to be a Mach 3 Interceptor. So because of this, every time one took off from a Russian Airfield, the US DotMil on-station AWACs would let the Krainians know hostiles “packing heat” were inbound.
So, as with everything else that Ivan has done in this war, namely “adapt, improvise, and overcome” they took an even BIGGER dumb bomb running at 1500 kilos and tweaked a new strap on guidance-and-glide package that didn’t need to go on the Mig-31. In this case, not one, but TWO of the FAB-1500s can be mounted on the Su-34.
Now, unlike the Mig-31, the Sukhoi Su-34 can take off from shorter, improvised runways. Which means a hell of a lot less warning for the Krainians, as well as three times the explosive on impact as instead of a 500 kilo/pound the FAB-1500 is well, 1500 kilos or pounds… not sure but three times the ka-boomy-boom.
So why then would we not be expecting Ivan to sit back and wait? They literally have all the time in the world, unless you get your “news” like a mid-wit normie-tard who watches CNN 24-7. Russia for the first time ever beat Germany in the top five GDP Producing countries worldwide. That right there sez something…
All the Russians have to do is watch the morons exsanguinate themselves on the offense. Just short of a full division or three of reinforced ground troops being injected from the Euros or, God help us, US DotMil and the accompanying aviation assets, the Krainians are out of men, out of tanks, and almost out of time. Y’all Have to excuse me, but I gotta put the Gran to Bed now.
Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes! Appreciate all the advice on the len(s) for the Eyeballs. Have to see what shakes out as I get closer. Been too busy making up for 1/2 day off yesterday from People’s Glorious Tractor Factory. In fact today, I got call from Premier!
Never a good thing normally, but seems it was, as he wanted to chat about some issues that have cropped up in production. The conversation went well, but is always a bit nervous-making to speak to the Premier… leave me to speak to the Commissars please. Production has ramped up in a major way, and I’m sort of floundering a wee bit, and sort of melted down on another coworker… nothing that could get me fired or anything… just a “OMG!!! Cut. me. some. slack.”
Enough about work. In the Eternal Struggle of “Always Needing MOAR Bux” I managed to snag an associate slot for CoffeeBrandCoffee.com I watch the guy who owns it/made it on YouTube who runs a pretty good channel. Seems that a bunch of associates decided to fuck with his business, namely other less-seen YouTubers who signed up for being associates, and then after four fucking days they went on “X” and p[ut the guy on blast for his politics…
Coached of course in a way that it was a blatant attempt to get him AND his company cancelled while ALSO trying to gain ‘clout’. Buch of other limp-wrist spineless jellyfags immediately cancelled their associations as well. And of course the Leftist Commiemob jumped in as well…
So when he announced that there were openings, and his quote: “I don’t care what your politics are!” I took him at his word. Signed up/Applied, and Gave him my link to El Bloggo Nasty, and waited.
As you can see in the right side, I was approved, as well as for my custom 10% off your first purchase using the Name The Jew NTJ code… My ‘cut’ of the vig is 5% of all sales made using my code(s)… I mean why not? Every. Fucking. Dime. Counts. these days, as if y’all don’t already know it. If you do try it, let me know in the comments if it’s good or not… I’ve seen some reviews that say it is, and I have to wait til payday to take advantage of my own discount Aye?
My personal favorite?
Wow Just Wow… especially when you see things like this:
Again, so much winning.
They did however ‘put points on the board’ today…
Today the “Big News” has been that the Krainians –did– hit the port in Sevastopol. Word is a dry docked Sub got taken out, and a dry docked Landing Craft (one of their BIG ones) got damaged, although the extent hasn’t been called out yet.
By their own admittance, they used the Brit Storm Shadow Cruise Missiles in a BIG strike… that the orders and Intel (Satellite and whatnot) was allll coordinated by the NATO generals, as these 70-80iq Krainians just do not have the capability and or capacity to do a mission like this without NATO. Hell, even the Storm Shadows were given to them by the Brits. All of which leads me to My Current Question:
How much longer is Putin going to hold off on hitting the sourcing of these expensive ‘toys’ that’ve been supplied? I mean the Russians have been diligent in hitting Logistics Hubs when they get the Intel, and a lot of equipment (that which hasn’t been stolen/grifted by the Krainians) hasn’t made it to the front… In fact, as an example, I saw this and commented on Gab today:
Not sure where it was taken but correct me if I’m wrong, but the newly painted crosses on there are Krainian Armor markings? If so, there’s scraping the ‘bottom of the barrel’ And then there’s this. That Frens, is a Panzer 38(t) Model. Originally made and designed by the Czechoslovakians, and when the Germans took over them, they kept using and making them. Link to the history is HERE
I am NOT going to say that they are digging up museum pieces, but maaan, even by my standards that shit IS a pure-dee Museum Piece. Made in 1938? Whew, they’re getting really desperate if in fact that is the case. So back to the original issue:
How much longer is VodkaManBad going to put up and keep allowing the Brits to keep this charade up? I mean if –I– was in charge? The factory that the Storm Shadows are produced at would suffer a calamitous on-purpose accident or a cruise missile strike. At this point he knows that the current NWO/GAE morons are literally going to let this continue… as in “the beatings will continue until morale improves” sort of shit… up til the last Krainian as it is…
And considering I’m re-evaluating just how stupid the average Krainian seems to be at this point… Dense doesn’t even start to cover it. I unfortunately had a few run-ins with some ‘Gopnik Krainians’ quite a few years ago, and no, they ain’t ‘sending their best’.
Especially in light of that mentally ill tranny they got as the English spokesthing… Link to the story is HERE and ‘it’ looks like a deranged version of the Church Lady, albeit with a ‘Karen’ wig…
I mean FFS Mr. Putin, will you please just end it all at this point? Take out London, Kiev, DC, anything… just shut this shit down ok?
Sorry but man, the longer this goes on, the less patience I have for all ‘teh stooopid’… Drop the Bomb man, End it now.
