Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
So, as we have been saying, things in the Krain ain’t looking too good. A lot of the talk has been all about the money, in that Krainfeld just left out of here and crawled back into whatever hole he hides in from his own people, and if I had to hazard a guess, a CIA hit team that’ll make it look like the Russians did the deed.
The only shekels he was able to worm away from the (p)Resident was the remaining 200 million that was -already- accounted for and was due to be handed over eventually. Word from some sources, to include Moon Of Alabama said that the real reason for the ‘summons’ of the Piano-Penis-Playing Pundit to D.C. was to give him some new marching orders, more than likely to cut the bullshit, try for some peace talks and let the Junta-in-Charge get the corpse better known as the Pretender to the Glorious and Harmonious P&PBUH (Plus 10%) Orifice of The (p)Resident, The Dementor-in-Chief, Emperor Poopypants the First, Chief Executive of the Kidsmeller Pursuivant, Good Ole Slo Xi-Den re-(s)elected.
Anything less is going to play piss poorly in Peroria, especially since now they’re starting to do “things” like deploying a 3 Star Retard namely Lt. Gen. Antonio A. Aguto. Now, looking up this guy, he’s apparently the first Filipino General Officer. His bio is thus:
“Antonio Alzona Aguto Jr. (born November 18, 1966) is a United States Army lieutenant general who served as the 40th commanding general of the First United States Army from July 8, 2021, to December 2, 2022. He previously served as the Commanding General of the 3rd Infantry Division and prior to that served as the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations, Plans, and Training of the United States Army Forces Command. In November 2022, Aguto was nominated to be the first commanding general of Security Assistance Group–Ukraine. (en) “
Which, to be honest doesn’t say shit about his background. No early life, no wife, no mention of kids… Wiki only had this to say about his early part of his career:
“Aguto is a 1988 graduate of the United States Military Academy with a Bachelor of Science degree in aerospace engineering. He served as the commanding officer of the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment from 2010 to 2012 and the 7th Army Training Command from July 2016 to May 2018”
Again, that doesn’t tell us shit about him. No branch except to say his degree from West Point in 1988 is in Aerospace Engineering. Problem there… West Point only has a minor in Aeronautical Engineering
Odd that Aye?
Link HERE if you want to see for yourself.
Add on there is ZERO info that I can find about his background after Hudson High. Usually there’s a progression as we all know, 2nd LT and so on and so forth. What his first command was, platoon/company/battalion… the usual stuff… but in his case?
This guy seems to have come into the DotMil in 2012 as a General Occifer fully formed with ZERO mention of first command(s) or any other -normal- DotMil progression. Now, maybe back in 1988 they had a Aerospace Engineering degree, however…
I called my old LT and asked him as a former Graduate of West Point. He retired as an ‘up or out’ Light Bird in 2011 after 21+/-. He got his 20, and a few months +/- but he told me Aero has always been a minor, and usually the guys who had it were headed to the Engineers for their branch, as opposed to Infantry, Chemo and the like…
Aguto’s branch BEFORE he was ‘born’ as a fully formed General is noticeably absent that I can find. If any of you sleuths find anything more, put it in the comments. My personal guess?
Seeings that he commanded “Combat Units” like the 11th ACR and 3rd Infantry, there’s a BIG fucking difference in being an actual Combat Commander as opposed to the fucking Big Dick General who never set foot outside the wire. Any bets he’s a Artillery or Engineering Occifer made good and is being ‘sold’ to the Krainians as some whizz-bang Gen’rul? I mean he was the HMIC (Head Motherfucker In Charge) of 7th Army Training Command which means Hohenfels… MY old fucking unit.
This guy will be great at the planned wargames that they’re supposed to run to try and teach the Krainians how to fight the war, as that’s all 7th ATC is good for as running the OPFOR is the 7th’s primary mission.
That being said however, there are some folks who believe that the idea is that Aguto’s job is to actually learn what real war is all about, as ZERO of the current DotMil Command Structure have ANY experience fighting a peer-on-peer fight.
Everyone we’ve gone up against have been Goat Herding Mountain Men who, BTW have purely kicked our asses over the past twenty years. We’ve never gone against a peer enemy, and that includes Gulf One when the Iraqis who’d been bombed nonstop for weeks/months, starved, and generally demoralized much like the Krainians are being now, so much so that they were done before we even started.
As to any hope of ‘ramping up’ our production to maybe help the Krainians?
Ain’t happening in this lifetime. As Oleksii Arestovich, the Anti-Krainfeld said the other day quite succinctly:
“The problem is not that they can’t give us money.
The problem is that they can’t give us shells.
A much-touted microchip factory in Phoenix, Arizona, has been pumped in $40 billion, like a transfer from Taiwan.
The plant is idle, there are no workers.
They tried to recruit Taiwanese, but they didn’t send either.
Under the existing system, the Americans cannot launch the military-industrial complex, neither with the Moroccans, nor with the Mexicans, nor with dancing, nor with tambourines.
The fundamental motivation of the market is financial speculation.
Arms offices show an increase in capitalization, but never show an increase in production (because there is practically none).
If production is growing at all, it is extremely slow so as not to break the capitalization schemes.
Their task is to increase the value of shares, not to make new equipment.
Tens of billions are being invested, but there is no growth in production.”
Yep. In fact to show how correct he is, the cost of producing a single 155mm HE Artillery Shell went from approximately $2000 a round to $7000 a round.
Sounds like a bit of War Profiteering Aye?
For damned sure it does.
Gotta pad that ‘bottom line’ for the Investors, never mind the board members like the SECDEF Lloyd “Gungrabber” Austin who serve(s/d) on the Board of Raytheon with $500k in current Stock Options and a yearly Salary of $2.7 million.
No shytte there Aye?
So, what’s you thoughts?
