Looks like 8 or 9 orcs caught some frags?

IIRC, there was a series of signs posted on a trail outside Da Nang I'd read about..
Don't bunch up
As you patrol about
Or you'll be picking
The fragments out.

Ugh, sorry to hear it. At least you will lose some weight from the inedible food if my recent experiences are anything to judge by.

CheatCommando: Ugh, sorry to hear it. At least you will lose some weight from the inedible food if my recent experiences are anything to judge by.


food in this place is actually not too shabby. Lunch is always a hot delicious meal, breakfast is german breads with all sorts of schmears, yogurt and 2 cups of joe... dinner is a bit of a joke but that's fine i wouldnt eat it anyway really since you dont need 3 squares when you're immobile.

honestly its really ok, very different mindset from the summer when i felt like a prisoner. Given the consequence of this going badly, if they say they wanna keep an eye on me and i get 5 more days of IV antibios and ensure i the infection doesnt return i'm game.

and they put me on an anti bio i cannot drink on so i'm sober too... its called metronidazole, which evidently in Latin means "we are going to dry your ass out while you take this".

That's a loooot of arty for yesterday.  The troops liquidated count seems oddly low and has since Lyman got liberated. Wondering if they're intentionally undercounting the numbers in that regard, for some reason.

my theory is that they're not including prisoners in the count. they could well be taking more prisoners than killin' at this point.

except for that guy in that vid hiding in the outhouse. He didnt get taken prisoner, now did he John. No. No he didn't. he got shot with like 10-15rds.

Wondering if most of that equipment is getting abandoned in the retreats. Especially the arty, which is both heavy and may or may not be working or even have ammo. Seems like the last thing they would bother taking with them in a rout. Explain a lot of equipment with a smaller body count.

On one hand, their absolute lack of any attempt to move tactically, and complete lack of situational awareness offends me on so many levels, having served in training units for over a decade.

On the other, GET REKT LMAO

Ukraine aid links

A month and a half into the war (day 44), many of us felt helpless and listless at not being able to do more to help, so here is a list of things that we can do.

There are plenty of charities that could use your help, but even if you don't have spare cash lying about, there are still things you can do, so keep reading


You can donate directly to Ukraine if you want to help them make more videos of tanks blowing up. (See 'military aid' below)

There are lots of humanitarian groups working to feed the displaced people and even their pets.  (See 'humanitarian aid')

And even if you're not in a position to give cash, you might be able to find a group that needs some volunteer help or attend a protest.  If you don't have a group in your area specifically helping Ukraine, you can likely still find other worthwhile causes.  And there are groups that have tasks that can be done online or over the phone without even leaving your home. (See 'other notes'). Even just calling politicians to remind them that we need to support Ukrainians.

You can call out dumbasses online who are spreading russian propaganda and otherwise spewing toxic crap.  (Or join groups like NAFO) And by ignoring or blocking the assholes on here who try that shiat. (Make sure to watch for other threads, not just the daily one)

And you can even support capitalism, and buy stuff made in Ukraine or are fundraisers for the war effort.  (See 'buying stuff')

This is in no way a comprehensive list.  This is just groups that Farkers have mentioned in past threads.  If you want a more comprehensive list, see https://supportukrainenow.org . They also have links to specific groups by country that you're coming from for protests, taking in refugees, etc.  You might also find interesting charities at https://standwithukraine.today/ukrainian-charities/ and https://www.reddit.com/r/ukraine/comments/tgc00n/want_to_support_ukraine_heres_a_list_of_charities/

I make no claims about any of these groups.  I've trimmed a few that people have said might be suspect, but I have no personal knowledge of any of them.  If you feel the need to vet them before donating, see GuideStar or Charity Navigator.

If you're currently employed by a large-ish company, they may have a donation matching program.  You can check https://doublethedonation.com/ but it's also worth contacting your HR to ask even if they're not listed there.

If you've gained profits from stocks, consider donating the stocks directly, so they get the full value and you don't need to hold some back to pay capital gain taxes.

If you can't donate money, but have free time and the health to do it, consider volunteering your time to groups to help them free up money to spend in Ukraine.

You can search Charity Navigator ( https://www.charitynavigator.org ) or GuideStar (https://www.guidestar.org/NonprofitDirectory.aspx) for terms like Ukraine, and look find a group near you that needs extra hands.  If you can't find a Ukraine specific one, pick another one with a mission that you support.

If you're a US citizen, call your congress critters and let them know how you feel:  (202) 224-3121.  Or if you want to sponsor refugees:  https://ukraine.welcome.us.  But you may want to try to find an NGO, as if you directly sponsor them you're financially responsible for two years.  (https://www.uscis.gov/ukraine ; So tell your representatives to give them refugee status).

If you would like to avoid doing business with companies still operating in russia, seehttps://www.dontfundwar.com

If you use streaming music services, search for Ukrainian artist playlists, so you'll give them a fraction of a penny and maybe find some new artists to support more directly.  See https://linkpeak.io/l/defendukraine

If you watch cam sites, consider supporting Ukrainians (although some may currently be displaced, others may tag Ukraine to show support because they're from neighboring countries, and some of the most in need of support may not currently have internet access; I don't have any sort of definitive list)

There are also efforts to DDoS Russian websites, but I'm not linking to them to avoid risking the mods removing this whole list.

Also see the official Ukrainian website on ways to support their effort:  https://war.ukraine.ua/support-ukraine/

Aren't they just grabbing prisoners and protestor at this stage, shoving a gun in their hands with about a week's training, and pointing them at the front line now? Not sure what they'd expect.

A week might be optimistic from what I've seen, and barely the time to sober up from getting spectacularly drunk on the bus ride down. (Not hyperbole, saw a few videos of that the other day and there was so much vodak that my liver hurt by proxy.) I just found it interesting that I was highly conflicted to see such poor, well, soldiering, but at the same time, OhNoAnyway.gif, y'know? :D

That's annoying. I'd hoped the rout would push them back further but it sounds like they've managed to stabilize something.

Part of me feels bad becuase most Russian Soilders don't even want to be there and prey to get wounded bad enough they have to return home but not enough to have life altering injuries.
Then I remembered the mass graves, thousands of Civilians stolen and transported to somewhere Siberia and probably now being human trafficked.
Then I say, Fack the Russians.
Let them nuke a city.
Finally give Nato a reason to erase Russia and its culture from the map once and for all.
Maybe when we rebuild, we'll do it correctly the second time round

In further corrections to official Russian government statements:

* Rumors that President Vladimir Putin has been unable to complete a speech without breaking into severe coughing fits are false. Putin is simply delivering coded messages to the Russian army generals . . . *checks notes* . . . mucus and phlegm.

* Word has reached the Kremlin of the decadent West's plans to pardon marijuana users, and our top generals are reacting with glee at the thought of our enemy being reduced to legions of ineffectual Beckys shooting up the marijuanas. In celebration, all Russian soldiers deployed in the Special Military Operation in Ukraine will be issued an extra ration of krokodil or methamphetamine at their preference.

* In spite of some claims, Excalibur rounds from the American M777 howitzer do not come in Pumpkin Spice flavor.

* With Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu's latest escape attempt involving water wings and the Moscow sewers having come close to success, the FSB has decided to place him in protective custody in the Tower of Moscow. For those in our viewing audience who are not familiar with this famed landmark, the much inferior Tower of London was based on its design when built in 1097 AD, with the minor change of having been constructed from bricks and mortar instead of traditional Russian building techniques involving mud, beer cans, and cursing. It is hoped that Shoigu will acquit himself with patience and perhaps even become part of the wax statue tour.

* With attendance numbers dropping sharply in the wake of multiple death and dismemberment cases in the opening week of BlyaatLand, park management has decided to extend the ongoing promotional tie-in with Stars Coffee in which any visitors to the theme park can receive a complimentary Blyaat size Gopnik Spice Latte upon surviving any of the park rides. Additionally, in order to show our appreciation to Russian army veterans on leave, all 'you must be this tall to enjoy this ride' requirements have been removed due to the large number of missing legs. Blyaat the Caat-branded tranquilizers can be available on request should any battlefield trauma return during park rides.

* Rumors that President Vladimir Putin has been unable to complete a speech without breaking into severe coughing fits are false. Putin is simply delivering coded messages to the Russian army generals . . . *checks notes* . . . mucus and phlegm.

* Word has reached the Kremlin of the decadent West's plans to pardon marijuana users, and our top generals are reacting with glee at the thought of our enemy being reduced to legions of ineffectual Beckys shooting up the marijuanas. In celebration, all Russian soldiers deployed in the Special Military Operation in Ukraine will be issued an extra ration of krokodil or methamphetamine at their preference.

* In spite of some claims, Excalibur rounds from the American M777 howitzer do not come in Pumpkin Spice flavor.

* With Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu's latest escape attempt involving water wings and the Moscow sewers having come close to success, the FSB has decided to place him in protective custody in the Tower of Moscow. For those in our viewing audience who are not familiar with this famed landmark, the much inferior Tower of London was based on its design when built in 1097 AD, with the minor change of having been constructed from bricks and mortar instead of traditional Russian building techniques involving mud, beer cans, and cursing. It is hoped that Shoigu will acquit himself with patience and perhaps even become part of the wax statue tour.

* With attendance numbers dropping sharply in the wake of multiple death and dismemberment cases in the opening week of BlyaatLand, park management has decided to extend the ongoing promotional tie-in with Stars Coffee in which any visitors to the theme park can receive a complimentary Blyaat size Gopnik Spice Latte upon surviving any of the park rides. Additionally, in order to show our appreciation to Russian army veterans on leave, all 'you must be this tall to enjoy this ride' requirements have been removed due to the large number of missing legs. Blyaat the Caat-branded tranquilizers can be available on request should any battlefield trauma return during park rides.


Having a good time visualizing the packaging for Blyaat the Caat-branded tranquilizers

So how many helicopters do they have left?  Four or two?

The two Russians crossed the Bering strait by boat to avoid being drafted into the military and landed on a remote Alaskan island earlier this week, where they have appealed for asylum, according to reports from the region.

Honestly, that's as valid a reason as I've seen, certainly no worse than what they've been allowing through the other borders.  They're trying to avoid being sent to their certain deaths in an internationally-condemned conflict by a lunatic tyrant.

On one hand, their absolute lack of any attempt to move tactically, and complete lack of situational awareness offends me on so many levels, having served in training units for over a decade.

On the other, GET REKT LMAO

Aren't they just grabbing prisoners and protestor at this stage, shoving a gun in their hands with about a week's training, and pointing them at the front line now? Not sure what they'd expect.


I don't think that they even get a week, sounds like a couple days during which they just stand there with no equipment. russians expect new recruits to train up once joining their units, but that isn't happening since there is no time before they are in combat. Sounds like they are lucky if they know how to load their weapon.

It's not Ukraine but it's a bit related.
Maybe Armenia and Azerbaijan will stop fighting



Armenia and Azerbaijan agree to recognize each other's territorial integrity and sovereignty. Russia's preoccupation with Ukraine created this opening. EU mediation effort led to this. A major milestone that needs to be formalized in an official document. https://t.co/xdRpgpPAw9

If you consider the timeline, and the reports of captures being 3-7 days after they were initially conscripted, there's gotta be at least 5 or 6 dudes who are thinking "shiat, I just wanted to play tarkov, not live it"

I think Georgia is waiting for Russia to have some big internal problems before taking back their land but if they wait too long it's going to be tough.



Russian occupiers continue the process of illegal borderization of Georgia by installing metal poles and wires in the village of Dvani in the Kareli municipality. Our territories shrink day by day. Russia craves continuous creeping occupation of Georgia, while killing Ukrainians. pic.twitter.com/mn24Bbt72e

Turkey and Greece getting along as well as when your uncle tried to deep fry in the backyard.



⚡ Turkey has deployed attack drones in Cyprus, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.

"Turkey has deployed UAVs, including attack drones, in the north of Cyprus. I do not rule out new supplies of weapons to the island. This is our right.

That's quite the feat, Putin:  Losing Armenia AND Azerbaijan at the same time?

Starting???

We can safely consider this the oafishal position of the russian government, based on Solovyov's background as Pootie-Poot's chief knob-gobbler. They're not blaming NATO or 'Arab mercenaries' or UFOs for getting their asses handed to them in Ukraine, now they're primarily concerned everyone is making fun of them. I suspect that's a significant factor in the decision-making processes for the not-a-war: trying to avoid 'losing face' on the international stage.

Hate to be the one to break it to you, Vova, but that ship has long since sailed, and is currently sharing a watery grave with Moskva. All of your pre-not-a-war chest thumping and saber-rattling and posturing is being compared to the Keystone Kops-level stupidityness publicly demonstrated by the russian military over the last seven months, and everyone is laughing at you. Most of the world has been laughing at you since March. You wanted a legacy for your rule of russia, and you've got one. Unlike Peter the Great or Ivan the Terrible, that legacy will be memorable solely for your many abject failures. The last Tsar will forever be remembered as Vladimir the Incompetent.

For those of you new to the Ukrainian War threads or who are only able to check them occasionally, here's my post summarizing the WW3 threads for September 24 to September 30. Russia ramped up their side of the war with a partial mobilization of 300,000 men but it didn't stop Lyman from being retaken by Ukraine

Oneiros should be around to post the most up-to-date list of aid links, but here's the most recent list which should be mostly fresh until he is. Older summaries along with an archive of threads can be found here in a spreadsheet being maintained by notmyjab if you need to catch up on that. Specific posts are under the "articles" tab. And if you need a good laugh, check out danceswithcrow's meme emporium.

As always, let me know if there's anything more to include that I missed and help me keep an eye out over the upcoming week for key events.

The us dod put out a video of an anti ship munition, skip to the end for three liver test, takes like 5 seconds to put it a freighter under water.
I think the acronym is a bit silly but it sure looks effective.



Watch as this @AFResearchLab simulation demonstrates QUICKSINK, a low-cost, air-delivered capability for defeating maritime threats. Watch until the end for the live demonstration, where it destroys a full-scale surface vessel! #lethality
