Clicked on the article of curiosity which republican was being quoted. 1st guess was cruz then blanche

FTA:
Olga Suyetina, foster mother of a soldier mobilized for the Ukraine conflict said she has heard from her son that the troops are underequipped. "There are no gunsights, nothing, we have to buy them by crowdfunding," she said, . . .

This "mother" disgusts me. If she had any moral compass or any human feelings for her son, his soul, or his victims; instead of crowdfunding his participation in the illegal invasion of Ukraine, she would send him money and advice for going AWOL while avoiding be murdered by the state.

Russian doctors are probably allowed to practice with few barriers in former Soviet republics. Even if Russia did not already have a shortage of doctors, they probably lost thousands in the recent "population decline". Those former Soviet republics are probably grateful to address their own shortages of doctors with these skilled immigrants.

"Putin said that he sometimes speaks with troops directly by telephone, according to a Kremlin transcript and photos of the meeting.

"I've spoken to (troops) who surprised me with their mood, their attitude to the matter. They didn't expect these calls from me," Putin said."


Putin on phone with trooper: "You're having a good time, RIGHT? YOU ARE UPBEAT."
Trooper: "Da, all is great here, sir! I couldn't possibly have convinced myself otherwise."

Putin, for sure, is going to hang.
Rope, if the Hague gets him.
Meathooks, if the traumatized populace of the Ukraine does.
ANY one who did not denounce him is fair game.

I'm looking at you, babuska, worried about your Russian boy on the front lines
You and your boy.

There's a reason that some of us are reluctant to draw a hard line between "military" and "civilian" when defining "orcs."

It's weird the sorts you see supporting Russia, or at least carrying water for them.

I have to admit, given the state of their country and military readiness, I always assumed they had no doctors. To find out they have at least one is impressive tbh,
 
2022-11-26 7:23:34 PM  
Reminds me of that line from Doctor Zhivago,

"Even Comrade Lenin underestimated both the anguish of that 900-mile long front... as well our own cursed capacity for suffering. Half the men went into action without any arms... irregular rations... led by officers they didn't trust."

I wonder if this current generation of Russian has that same capacity.
 
2022-11-26 7:23:59 PM  
They need to conscript all those draft-dodging traitorous civilian doctors, arm them with tampons, and send them to the front!

The USSR had satellite countries to provide tons of resources and capable personnel.  russia has half the population the USSR did in the early 90s and the half they have is not the smart half.  They lost a ton losing the western regions.

In pirate ships, and probably most legit ships back in the day,  the surgeons were very important. But shiat happens and if your vessel lost the surgeon to disease, battle, or the "medicine" they thought worked in that era, basically anyone who could read a little latin would be promoted to "surgeon"

Imagine on the front lines it's the same for the Russian conscripts now. If someone is hiat near Igor, and it's not Igor himself, Igor is the doctor now. Good luck to comrade casualty.

SBinRR: Leonid Slutsky

Huh huh huh huh huh
"Slutsky"


Back in about the mid 80s there was a scandal involving an MD researcher out of, I think, San Diego State University. He was publishing something like 200 papers in one year. Some thought him a star, others were immediately sure the guy was a fraud. A few folks looked into what he was doing and it was bad. He would publish the same thing, including the exact same figures, in multiple different journals. It also became clear that he was faking a significant amount of his data. His name? Robert Slutsky. For some unaccountable reason, that stuck with me.

Plenty of Republicans exist who still remember the Reagan years and the USSR and haven't changed their views on the "commie" scum.

I don't personally know any, but Ive heard pacifist Liberals talk about Ukraine ending the war by embracing peace and laying down their arms.

Honestly I thought she was talking about HWS or ACOG sights when I started reading it, and I thought "Well yeah, they're expensive and they're getting rusted out shiatty AK's, of course they aren't going to have advanced optics mounted. They still have iron sights, right? Iron sights work just fine."

Then I realized "Holy shiat, maybe the iron sights on their rifles have fallen off, or rusted and they can't be adjusted. And if the sights have rusted to that point, the rifling in the bores of the rifles has probably been corroded to the point that you could never accurately shoot the rifle in the first place."

To which I guess... good. But these are the rifles going to the hundreds of thousands of people who were conscripted. If you voluntarily wanted to go to Ukraine, you don't get to complain. If you were forced to go... well, just surrender. And hope you don't end up back in Russia with a sledgehammer hitting the back of your head.

iToad: Russia is basically an all-powerful Tsar, supported by corrupt and incompetent boyars, ruling over downtrodden and terrorized serfs. From their earliest history, right up to today.


They're completely open about it, including the label. One of their pundits recently made headlines for saying "We chose autocracy and gave the Leader basically unlimited power for a reason, and if the Leader isn't able to use that to give us victory and glory, we reserve the right to eliminate him."

In true Russian fashion, the well-spoken pundit still used an incredibly ugly / violent reference for "eliminating him." Lovely culture.
