Ukraine. What happened to you.

You used to be cool. You used to be about sunflowers

I don't think the various ethnic minorities in Russia are going to put up with this much longer. They're going to have to be the ones to end this.

This is what it looks like when a country is led by a dynamic younger person instead of a moribund geriatric basket case. Don't get defensive, I'm talking about Putin.

Russia's line is "give us everything or you're provoking us to attack" and Ukraine's is "we're taking our land back and kicking your asses out".

There's definitely no room for negotiation there, Russia should 100% drop weapons and withdraw then send a diplomatic mission to discuss the return of kidnapped Ukrainian nationals and how much Russia can bear to pay in reparations.  Also, they should deliver Putin's head in a gift box.

That's not going to happen, so Russians will continue to die at a much higher rate that Ukrainians until Russia collapses.

I have cats, and they're young enough and I'm old enough they could outlive me.  There's a very good chance that will eventually happen to me.  Cats are loyal(ish) only as long as you feed them.  You stop, they get practical quickly.

Long story short, I don't think that sight would traumatize me.  Bodies are just meat, animals don't have taboos about eating people.  It's nature.  There's plenty else going on in a war zone with the living that could mess me up really good, but I tend not to worry about the dead.

Unlikely. Slavic Russians are the vast majority - 80% of the population.
 
2022-10-02 12:25:30 AM  
They have a large enough sample size of conscripted Russians to figure out that these kids don't want to be here except for the sadistic ones who should be quickly dispatched. The average Russian doesn't even know how they got there. Some in fact are defecting if they don't have family concerns back at home.

The enemy's conscripts don't even want to be there. I won't joke that they're being sent as cannon fodder, because they really are. Conscripts are being handed rusty weapons.

At this point, Russia may as well tattoo conscripts' chests with "THIS SIDE TOWARDS ENEMY".

Yeah, now Ukraine is fighting a lot of conscripts, but it's a lot harder to hate them.

I know American marines that had their name tattooed inside their lower lip. Used to work with one and the first time he showed me he told me how he'd bet women in bars he had his name tattooed inside his lip.

I suggested he tattoo 'your name' and bet them he had 'your name' tattooed inside his lip.

When he told me why he did it my suggestion didn't seem so funny anymore.

Did the Russians run out of dog tags, or were they so poorly made that they're illegible after a few days of wear?

There's something weird with that. Below, find the standard US dog tag.

And now, the Russian.

See the difference?

Standard US (and standard in much of the world) is name and serial number, often blood type and religion as well.

Russian, though?

No name. No blood type. No religion. Nothing but a number.

There's a lesson about how Russia views its troops there.

Not a bad solution, but tattoos in general are frowned upon in Eastern Orthodoxy - so, the religious among them would be hesitant to get tattoos.  Doesn't seem to stop the Russian mob, though.  Perhaps the taboo is less prominent among the general population as well now.

They could always use something only semi-permanent like henna or some "tattoo pens" I've seen advertised that only last a couple of weeks.  Not sure how generally available those are in Russia, however.

The Russian conscripts will be sent to the places where motivated Ukrainian troops are waiting to turn them into more pig chow.

It's gotta be demotivating.

Even an Authoritiarian tyrant can not hide from Google. The eyes of the world are on Putin. And his people are Googling how to escape consription by breaking one or two limbs. Traditional Russian patriotism at its Czarist, Communist and Crazy Tiny Ballerina best.  The Princes of Novoogrod would be proud of how they're sticking it to the libs, the nazis and theri Sultanic Masters.

There's some serious unrest in Dagestan and Buryat brewing and some loud calls for Chechnya to be an independent state again.

So we will see.

It would be really bad for Russia to have to fight on 3 to 4 fronts with 3 of those 4 being in their own territory while already having to conscript randos who have no interest going to war.
