Good. No upper age limit.  Now they can start burning into the pool of armchair idiots that have kept Putin in charge for the last couple of decades.

Young people are dumb. But can you count on them to be dumb enough to fight your war for you?

Russia is beginning to field mothballed tanks built from the 1960s. Russia probably needs the former tank crews to operate them.

Now they can conscript every man in the country able to walk and pull a trigger.

The good news is when this is all over, Russia will be out of men and all the hot Russian ladies will be looking for secks from old chubby American guys. Maybe even butt secks!

The free world just needs to keep the Meat Grinder going strong in Ukraine. More weapons, stronger weapons, and more aid are needed.

I've been to Kyiv before, in better times. A beautiful city rich in culture and friendly people.

What Putin has done is unforgivable, and the price Russia's clown-show military must pay is steep. Right now, the more dead Russian soldiers, the better.

FTFA: Russian forces have suffered significant losses fighting in Ukraine.

If only there were a way to avoid this.

I can't help but wonder if it's for propaganda purposes.  Oh sure here in the West it looks weak and desperate but in the East that was raised on stories of Stalingrad Sacrifice it may sell the "desperate struggle of self-defense against the foreign barbarians."

Imperial Walkers? Hell, maybe Storm Troopers would be an improvement.

A "Special Police Action" was not considered a war and so there were limits protecting who and what could be a soldier.  Russia has now decided it is at war, and has dropped all pretence.  It's a bold move.  Special police crimes now become war crimes.

An armed Hoveround would be a Fat Commander from Duke 3D, right?
 
2022-05-25 11:49:42 PM  
I mean. You'd THINK that any sane person would immediately draw parallels to Germany in WW2, what with the conscription of old men in the volksturm at the end of the war and realize "...Comrade... are WE the baddies?"
 
2022-05-25 11:51:35 PM  
I just wanna remind everyone that the Russian people have no control over their government, they are victims too, the Russian army is performing so poorly because Russian people have no good reason to fight

To bad we didn't stop this in 2014 when Russia was shooting down airliners with Buk missiles.

You completely miss the subtext here.
By allowing geriatrics to enlist, they are clearly scraping the barrel for volunteers.

When that meat grinder takes its toll and starts running low on meat, Putin will be left with 3 options:

1) start in with nuclear strikes against Ukrainian cities, Kyiv would be the obvious target, which would make the rest of the world take a collective shiat resulting in consequences never being the same again

2) Declare open war and start a draft, which could cause Russian babushkas take a collective shiat with mass protests escalating to civil unrest and possibly to revolt ending with Putin's head on a stick

3) Putin agrees to an armistice, an end to military hostilities, but not a truce or peace treaty. This is uncertain, but could likely result in Putin's fall from power and his ass being handed over to The Hague via a deal with the Oligarchs to let them have some yachts back and the sanctions lifted

Honestly, Putin's staring down death as it is with his cancer. So scenario 1 is the most likely since he has the say over the use of the nukes, the results are unpredictable and actually present a possible victory for him. Then again, that supposes that Russia still has an operable nuclear arsenal

They do have control.
Putin has a huge amount of support.
Without that support, he wouldn't be where he is.
 
2022-05-25 11:57:16 PM  
The army is in such shiat shape they've gotta go all the way back to Stalingrad to find men to make up the difference, I guess.

The Russian government is completely kleptocratic and is headed by putin, in fact the ussr was felled specifically by the kleptocratic cabal currently headed by Putin

Self defense against the people they are invading

Seems legit

If they aren't fragging their officers, they don't get any empathy. If you don't kill the men giving the orders, you are complicit. Die horribly. (the Russians, not you)

State Duma speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said: "Today, especially, we need to strengthen the armed forces and help the Ministry of Defence. Our Supreme Commander is doing everything to ensure that our armed forces win, and we need to help."

There's Putin's folly. He's been utilising troops from the Ministry of Defense, rather than the Ministry of Offense.
 
2022-05-26 12:14:41 AM  
One important thing that everyone now knows, Putin doesn't learn from his own mistakes, that means he can be led into disaster... Fun

The Russian populace, as a whole, is a mess...Alcoholism, heavy smoking, living among pollution,
poor diet, and a prevalence of many endemic diseases like TB,Hepatitis, Typhoid Fever etc..
just make things worse.. The life expectancy in Russia is also pretty terrible for men it's just 68,
for women it's 73..

Yeah, but 73 in Siberia feels like an eternity.

This is how I would like to picture Ukraine/Russia negotiations:

"Thank you for coming, Mr. Russia person.  Before we start I want to make one thing abundantly clear.  Ukraine will not surrender even 1 millimeter of Ukraine land to Russia.  Do you understand?
If you so much as even hint at suggesting that Ukraine give something to you then I will shoot you in your face where you sit.  Are we clear?
Great, so let's get started."

Uh ... welcome to America?

We're the only "first world nation" with a steadily declining life expectancy, probably because the GOP wants us to catch up to Russia's.

They ran out of tanks they initially assigned to the invasion.

But they did start busting out the 62 which is not a good sign for them.
