Pepperidge Farm remembers.
NATO had a closed doors meeting and announced it was 100% Ukraine and Zelensky and co cried for days "It was Russia!" even when every piece of evidence said otherwise.
Although I sadly think Nato will eventually be dragged in. There is no off ramp to this conflict and it escalates every week. I mean could you ever imagine seeing the headline "Moscow hit by drone attack" or "The Kremlin hit by drone" by a Nato backed country in your lifetime? I certainly didn't :/
Yeah Russia was always gonna win this war. I mean it does seem the Ukies want to drag in the US and NATO especially with stupid shit like today drone striking Moscow but if we do manage to stay out this, this war was only ever gonna go one way.
It's also eerily similar that before the Cuban missile crisis there was the Cuban Revolution which only happened because Cuba was totally being fucked over by the US and was being used as America's playground.
Ukraine is the same situation, how many Democrats and Republicans had their hand in that cookie jar? I mean christ the President of the United States put his fuck up son on a energy board there. Just like Cuba we're risking a nuclear war because a few senators and other politician's wallets went lighter.
Just like Soledar.
"Not strategically important", but once the Russians started stockpiling all their ammo in the salt mines all the Himaris'o'clock memes and Himaris strike footage completely stopped.
Gotcha. I just find it funny that yesterday they were like "Yes the city is fallen" to today being like "The entire Russian army is being encircled rn" and "Don't worry guys, Steiner IS coming and will save the day".
Right? I thought Wagner was down to suicide charges with shovels? Why do they need F16s if they're winning so hard? Why do they need all these arms and billions of dollars?
Why even have air alerts? They can shoot down 20 out of 6 hypersonic missiles right?
Have you actually looked at the maps? Even the most pro ukie ones show there's literally no "encirclement" and they've lost the city. It's literally Soledar all over again with how much cope is being made right now.
"Ukraine is counterattacking along the flanks" "Ukraine is encircling the city" <- You are here
"A countattack will definitely happen once Wagner leaves, they are just waiting"
"The city is worthless anyway, a strategic retreat was needed, the forces are needed elsewhere"
"The city was never strategically important"
Insert next ukie city stands! "Slava Ukraine!"
I mean "modern" women are on drugs in general. The last number I saw that categorized how much of the female population that was on some kind of medication was staggering. Like there's even research now that just their birth control has a wild effect on them and can effect their mood, decision making, and even who they're attracted to.
Yeah they're pretty terrible in that regard. Some of their steam recommendations and reviews are okay but they always seem to be sandwiched between their social justice wank.
Why do you think the moon landing was a conspiracy theory? I mean right now in your pocket is probably a phone with gps that only works because we put satellites in orbit. It's not much harder to put up a rocket to something that orbits our planet already. Rocketry is not space magic, it's just physics.
That's even ignoring the incredible idea that somehow the greatest enemies in the cold war would somehow work together to embarrass one of them for reasons. Like the soviets never once doubted the moon landing. If they thought it was fake why not embarrass the US and take home the biggest propaganda victory in history. It's just pants on retarded.
At the end of the day it's just pattern recognition which ex-military, mental health professionals, and autists have in spades. I don't think you need to be booted out of society for it, just that when you have or adopt that mindset you start noticing so many things that people tune out on a daily basis. There's probably a component of mental trauma there because those three groups also usually have them as well.
The thing is that it's not a dream job to them and not because they want to mandate things. Oppressinator hit the head on the head above.
Imagine being a journalist and going to school for years, being in debt from it and being introduced at parties and to family members as they guy who has to write about Pokemon vidya. Someone once brought up the point to me once that really made sense is that the reason why these journalists hate their audience so much is because they hate themselves most of all.
Didn't GTA San Andreas do that? Like if you kept hitting the drive through you got fat as fuck and if you biked everywhere you got thinner? I don't remembered if it affected gameplay though.
The Sims did too, at least the older ones. Like if you became a fat fuck you were more likely to die early and no one would sleep with you iirc.
This. As I said in a comment below, alot of homeless people want to be homeless. They want to be free of responsibility and be able to drink/do drugs. The homeless vets who worked or went through the programs earnestly didn't stay homeless for long.
I don't agree with you on a lot but you are not wrong here. I worked with homeless veterans as a vet a couple years back and they fell into three categories.
The dudes who would go out with signs or cups did not want to work period. Any change given would go straight to cigarettes, alcohol or coffee. They had no intention of finding a job or fixing any of their issues.
The guys who either already had a job or were just pushed out by batshit s/o's would continue or find work and get out of the shelter extremely quick. They would never be caught dead with a sign.
The last group were guys who were living innawoods and only came back because of medical issues. They usually would get fixed up, make some money to get more supplies and then go back to the woods. They also would never beg or use a sign.
But how are they beaten though? They're still in Ukraine, their government hasn't collapsed in "two weeks" like they said it would, Putin is still in charge and not dying of cancer. And even though Ukraine is recieving billions of dollars weekly and huge weapon shipments daily the status quo hasn't changed an iota since Kherson.
If western governments truly believed the propaganda they put out they should be kicking back with a margarita right? Except they're not. They're reinforcing the Suwałki Gap. They're putting tens of thousands of troops in Eastern Europe. They're putting next generation fighter jets and AD in there as well. Why? Russia is down to using shovels because they're out of ammo supposedly right?
I just don't see how that's a possibility for the Russians. NATO and the west has made it very clear that as soon as the shooting stops, Ukraine is being brought in and some type of defense umbrella will be immediately enacted. At that point NATO is on Russia's doorstep and what happens when they lob shells or drones or partisans over the border? They just have to suck it up for the rest of time?
You can't just claim a small success and leave, the west has made it clear the only end of this war is the breakup/humiliation of Russia. At that point why not just keep fighting? Like Putin doesn't even have to make propaganda for his people, they are literally openly saying this every week.
People keep saying that but then what's the end to this then? If you're letting Russian cities be captured will you retaliate ever? Like this war started with sending over helmets and sleeping bags and since we've put NATO forces on the ground there, bombed Nordstream, gave long range missiles and even let the dumb asses drone strike the Kremlin.
What's the end goal to this madness other that pushing the Ruskies to use nukes?
Which is a pants on retarded take from them. If the first 20-50 pages of a book are complete ass why would the rest of the book or series be different or why would I have to keep reading it in the hope it gets better?
It's a same take I see when games are bad and review bad and people cry out "But but the developers will be out of work!!", like that's reality everywhere. If you're a shitty cook or welder or whatever, you need to find a new job.
They did try to start WW3 when they dropped that AA missile into Poland and blamed the Russians so it wouldn't suprise me.
The article and leaks it's based on says Hungary because they're pissed off them for more leaning towards Russia.
The problem I think is that there is no off ramp or end to this conflict. No matter how much western media cries that Russia is just "two more weeks" to total collapse or Putin has cancer or something else flat out retarded, the reality doesn't match the propaganda. If any of that was true, they why is NATO reinforcing the western flank with 10000s of ground troops and F-22 Raptors? Why did they announce that they're reinforcing the Suwałki Gap just this week? I mean according to the media Russia is out of troops, out of ammo, out of missiles, and have to resort to suicide charges with shovels. Seems kind of silly right?
The west also thinks they can get this to a peace deal but like you said they would literally have to put Ukraine in NATO to prevent future attacks. So why would Russia give up and let that happen?
The scary part is that this doesn't suprise me. I went and got a beer with a buddy who's a teacher recently and he said that their administration seperated all the teachers by race and the white ones (including my buddy) were ranted at over "white privilege" and other shit.
Shit at least you'd have a chance there even if they signed you up for the war. Especially since from some of the rumors and pictures I've heard/seen there's foreign units there including an American one led by a former USMC colonel.
I mean you might die but that's better than having your life destroyed and sitting in jail waiting for shower time.
It's funny I thought that was just a meme the first time I heard it but when you dig it's literally the most logical thing in the world. It's incredible how obvious it is too when you compare him to younger photos of good ol' Castro.
I do find it hilariously ironic considering that the Nazi's were vehemently against deviant sexual degeneracy and most of the books they actually burned were pedo or trans shit of the time. Like if you really wanted to LARP the only correct course of action would be turning your own gun onto the Western coalition overlords.
