Girkin the "analyst" again.
Russian troops setting new records for running, without the use of performance enhancing drugs used by Russian athletic teams. Great success!
That was a great read, thanks very much.This was posted back in April, but it's still a good read. We've trained the hell out the Ukes since 2014. They've been completely remade. They're no longer a former Soviet Republic but rather a neo NATO military.
They WANT to be Western and they are willing to fight for it.
Whatever it is, however it is getting done, I would like to see more of it. Helping Ukraine defend their freedom while destroying Russia and Vladimir Putin’s ability to meddle in our domestic affairs is fine by me. That is a great use of our tax dollars.
WHAT???? In the last several examples of combined arms maneuver warfare (desert storm 1 and DS part 2), we took down a fairly well equipped military. Especially, in part 1. It's the Asymmetric stuff that we suck at.They seem to be surpassing the performance of recent (post 1945) US brass.
No, I think the US isn’t telling or advising the Ukes what to do vis a vis magical troop maneuvers. We’re giving them targeting intelligence like General Strokingov is at such and such a lat/lon. It would be a shame if something were to happen to him.
We may need to have them teach us how to use our weapons to win wars.
It's interesting in its lightning speed of course. Do the Ukranians risk over-running their supply lines ala Rommel and Montgomery alternating lightning moves forward, then collapsing and retreating, or is Ukraine small enough that fuel, food and ammo can go to the spearhead?Disagree. Strongly. Giving them intel is one thing. A small country learning the ultra complex task of combined arms movement while on the offense is an entirely Post Doctorate level skill set. Gen Milley was interviewed this week and he talked about that exact thing, about how difficult it would be to shift from the defense to the offense and execute a complex counter-offensive. The Ukes have shown amazing bravery, skill, determination and aplomb. But I don't think that skill set would be in their toolbox without some American Advisors whispering in their ears suggesting that maybe you want to structure your forces like this, send that unit over there, this one here, target this unit with your HIMARS, that one with Air, etc, etc.
And i don't say that in anyway to take away from what the Ukis are doing or have achieved or to pound America's chest. I'm just saying that I think our level of involvement is a bit deeper than just sharing intel and supplying weapons. I hope it is deeper, and I hope it stays sekrit so that Ukistan and Zelensky get all the credit they deserve.
