...and they haven't even got to the BRRRRRRRRRRRRRT yet.

These poor bastiches haven't even seen the good stuff yet. The stuff we dreamed up JUST for them. In the regions that they LIVE in. For the conditions that they're used to fighting in.

Seriously. We put guns on an AC-130 that can level an entire tank column. Gatlings, cannons, including a 105 that will blow the socks off entire buildings, and we can park a couple of those bastiches up in a daisy chain that can just call the Hand of God down on targets. That's just what we talk about. What we use to ADVERTISE for volunteers. Volunteer military. Everyone said, "sign me up." And they got trained. Professionally.

These kids are scared of the Ukrainians? To be fair, that's not a bad way to go, considering the history and the fact that you're in the back yard and it's PAST planting season and they've had to deal with your asses, plus...you know...all those war crimes. But your boss wants to expand this mess?

The Ukraine doesn't even have a Navy deployed, and can sink your ships with impressive regularity, and your boss wants to make it open season for Russian vessels? With subs and planes alone your Navy are already sitting ducks, as are all the train tracks and routes into Ukraine and Finland, or anywhere else you might want to adventure to. That's without deploying even ground forces. No reinforcements. No supplies. No way home. That's what your boss is courting. And you are worried about the Ukrainians? We're just giving them the off the shelf stuff.

Seriously. Y'all would be better off surrendering to the closest Ukrainian force, and getting kept in POW holding than what is still on the way. Your boss made a bad call, and it's only going to get worse, because with sanctions, you can kiss replacement vehicles and parts goodbye once you go through the warehouse stock that your bosses have already looted.

I wonder how long it'll be before Russian soldiers start defecting in large numbers.

Can you even consider a Bayraktar a "western" weapon?

Why give Putin an easy PR win by putting easy air targets like the A-10 and AC-130 up when what we're doing is working?

We need to help by sending these new fun weapons. We have to help keep Russia scared.

khitsicker: Can you even consider a Bayraktar a "western" weapon?


Considering the OG ones were made with off the shelf parts from western countries, yes. Most of that has been replaced by domestic parts after the civilian aerospace companies balked at having their stuff used on Turkish warplanes but the replacements are functional copies of the originals.

There were a bunch in the first week of the war, but then the Russians sent in their military police to start shooting deserters and the non-compliant.  Fear of getting shot in the back while you head forward to surrender at the front is a powerful motivator.

Nope. Cancer. That's what the official autopsy (which will not be performed) will say, and that's what they'll stick to.

Admittedly, I still like my Death of Stalin-esque idea where he legitimately dies of falling down a flight of stairs and infighting winds up getting the rest of the oligarchy killed.

You send in the Terminators and the Russians will shiat themselves to death.

Universal healthcare would actually save us about 7% of GDP freeing up more money for weapons, but there's too many very wealthy entrenched interests to fix the issue so long as we have unlimited money in politics.

The only rational justification for brutality is to terrify the enemy.  Otherwise what you mostly want is to wound them in ways that weigh down their support systems.

Sure, they have lost the right to humane treatment, but that does not mean you have to indulge for the sake of it.

You'd think at some point Russian soldiers would be all "Tons of us are dying for no reason. We're being issued Mosin Nagants, steel helmets, and are losing all our vehicles. Meanwhile the Ukranians have drones, Javelins, and are being supplied by nearly every Democracy on Earth. FARK this." and just refuse to fight and/or mutiny.
