Burning to death in a tank... no, i have no feelings for the invaders, not that much. But it does not get much more horrific.

So, are you feeling even a little bad about enjoying this video?

Try this one weird trick. Imagine burning to death in a hospital, school, food depot, or mall purposely targeted by Russian orcs.

There. Now this video is much more palatable.

This.  The guys in the tanks aren't conscripts like the foot soldiers, they're professional volunteers.  They bought their tickets, I say let them crash.

It is possible to both be 100% sympathetic and supportive of the Ukrainian cause (Defense of their Homeland) and also maintain some element of humanity.

It's just an absolutely brutal death... I'd prefer it if the scumbags would withdraw... but... the death shall continue until it doesn't.

You could counter that being raped and murdered by a Russian solider is more brutal and we can go back and forth and all of that... But war is just f*cking disgusting in all it's many ways of fantastically horrific death.

It just makes me think about night sleeping in the hell hole of my Bradley out during training wondering what would happen if there was ever a fire/explosion... In armor, it's just about the scariest thing you can imagine. Didn't help that the Bradley they gave us had burn marks on the back interior hatch from some previous issues it had...

No sadness from me either.  Also, there are worse ways to die in war.  Slowly dying of a gut wound in a ditch for 72 hours for instance.

Ah, you're right, Ed. A parachute not opening... that's a way to die. Getting caught in the gears of a combine... having your nuts bit off by a Laplander, that's the way I wanna go!

you'd think they'd engineer proper bomb sights for this kind of thing.  And maybe they have.  This might be a lot less lucky than it looks.

There's a similar one out there but I'm not sure how to find it (I saw it at Itemfix a few months ago). Similarly, a drone (?) was dropping bombs on some Russians and they ran to the safety of a nearby car. They started to take off but the sunroof was open. The bomb went straight in the sunroof. Can you imagine the guys in the car? The bomb entered but then took a second or two before it exploded so they CLEARLY knew what just happened before boom.

They decorate and bury (Russian) tankers in groups of three, they decorate and bury infantry one at a time. They're attacking other people so putting them down is the only answer.
 
2022-08-17 4:13:24 PM  
I think the tank was abandoned; they shut the engine off and let it sit with the hatches open to air out.  They know they're a sitting duck with a big target on their head so they don't hang around.

This can't be real, can it?  A single tank, absolutely parked, with no infantry in sight?  Are they still this bad at combined arms six months in?

I like how the drone operator started putting distance between drone and explody tank.

100% agree.   I'm never sure how to feel in these situations so what I rest in is at any time the Russians could stop the invasion - they can stop the war.  The Ukrainians can't stop the war.  So the only ways I see the war will end is Russia takes over Ukraine entirely or Ukraine does such a great job at repelling them the Russians withdraw.  Of the two Russian withdrawal seems preferred by far to me so I figure the more of these Ukrainian victories happen and the faster then the faster the war will end.  It's how I rationalize weirdly celebrating these things.

Not that you're suggesting it at all but on a similar note I'm never sure what the right thing to do with these videos is.  Seems gory and bad to publicize them but I sincerely believe a long tradition of hiding the true horrors of war is one of the main reasons first world countries still get into wars.   So short term it may be better to hide these videos but long term I think it would be much better if the voting public of any country at war was forced to watch these images because this is what they are supporting.

Even if there was nobody inside, I'm sure that Yuri was pissed when he got back to the tank with his 5 gallon gas canister that the jerk at the station totally gouged him on.

Modern warfare is just terrifying. No warning. Just sitting there enjoying a moment of silence. Then before you can sense or react you are dead.

Not that you're suggest ...



The fact is, if the Russian soldiers all put their weapons down, they'd get to go home.  If the Ukrainian soldiers all put their weapons down, they'd be taken to prison camps, tortured and murdered.

I know, I did the screen grab and the video looks fake to me. I'd say it's more plausible that the tank was being scuttled, there was video of it and it was doctored to show off.
