Maybe showing anyone who cared to log in and share geo-tagged video information was not the best idea fellas?

I thought that the Russians were supposed to have competent cybercriminals. Or is that just the Troll Farms looking to extort and they never bothered to give their rank and file the bare minimum for security training? Cripes, they might have just tracked the reporter's phone to the damn thing.

No, no. Sharing geo-tags in photos, videos, and livestreams is most strategy, comrades. Please keep up the good work.

CSB:

Geraldo did an in store event at a bookstore I worked at in Manhattan. I was ordered to find him a diet coke, which I had to go to a bodega 2 blocks away to find. The whole walk back and all the way up the elevator from the entrance of the bookstore to the 3rd floor event space I shook that thing as hard as I could. It exploded in his stupid face and he screamed at me while diet coke fizz dripped from his stupid moustache. He tried to have me fired and the manager told him to eat shiat.

Several months later I fired for unrelated reasons.

The orcs are so stupid that they published a video of a mobile weapon and did not move the weapon to avoid being attacked when the video was seen by the defending forces. It is like the orcs have no clue that geolocation of video is simple.
The mortar did explode spectacularly once the Orc-be-Gone was applied. Need to see more booms like this.

Before I loaded the post, I honestly was 50/50 on whether it was going to actually be Geraldo embedded with the Russians. With Fox, that felt like a plausible scenario.

What Russia has is a hell of a lot of cybercriminals.  The vast majority can not be trusted with speak-and-spell, let alone a computer.  Their successes have been due to nothing but luck.  Throw enough people at a problem and you are bound to come out ahead on a rare occasion.  That is also their standard military doctrine.

Wasn't it the orcs that 10-15 years ago tested a new torpedo.  Which, when launched, did a 180 and hit the sub that launched it?

I recall the orcs also lost a plane load of high ranking officers that went to investigate the accident.

Not just the weapon, but the whole area is smashed. The buildings look fine in the propaganda video, but they are smashed in the drone video. This was a major attack.

This was probably located by counter-artillery radar, but geo-located is also possible. Either way, I approve.

2022-05-21 8:34:45 PM  
And it just occurred to me that maybe the reason it didn't move is because it couldn't. Out of fuel or broken down. Too bad.

Likewise. In fact when I opened the link I was searching for Gerry. It took me a bit to realize it wasn't really him. Plausible indeed.

Their troll farms are focused on convincing people they already believe. Magnifying the idiot if you will.

In the battle for the internet, that we lost, it's not the messengers who are spamming media with lies that matter. Their only value is disseminating the messaging from the villains to the petty villains who just happen to always vote republican.

bughunter: Hmm... what distinguishes a mortar from artill--


Generally speaking, angle of fire.  Also size and range.  Mortars usually fire at high upward angles, artillery uses shallower angles.

Mortars tend to be smaller, and also have shorter range since they're lobbing their shells up high.  Mortars are useful because they can easily fire from behind cover (say, shooting over a building from behind it like this one was) and hit targets in cover, since they're shooting almost straight up and the shell comes almost straight down.  Also makes it difficult to locate exactly where the mortar is firing from since there's little directional information (of course, if you send a picture of where it is, someone with some local knowledge probably wouldn't have too much trouble pinpointing it).

Also have small mortars made to be carried by one or two people.

There are some designs that have shallower angle and are basically made to be smaller and easier to transport artillery but still called a mortar.

It's a way of dehumanizing the Russian soldiers that have been sent to their inevitable death. Take is as you will.

The Russians in Bucha etc. did a pretty good job of dehumanizing themselves without any assistance.

Not gonna argue that. They've made the case time and again. I was just making a point.

IMHO it's a Fark thing, I've never seen it used outside of Fark.  As I was posting to Fark, well, ....
