there is no way the rushtards could have kept up the pace of attacks without
iranian and north korean weapons and of course chinese plastic airsoft hats

War profits

The weapons industry, led by Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, and Northrop Grumman are the biggest winners so far, with each of their stocks climbing since the war - Lockheed alone rising 38 per cent.

And that’s only the tip of the iceberg.

President Biden has signed off a military package that clears the way for $858 billion in Pentagon spending and nuclear weapons work at the Department of Energy in 2023 – more than the US paid out at the height of the Cold War.

The $80 billion increase alone from the 2022 Pentagon budget is more than the military budget of any country other than China.

More than half of that $858 billion will go to the US defence industry, with the top 5 – Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Boeing, General Dynamics, and Northrop Grumman – splitting between $150 billion and $200 billion in Pentagon contracts.

For its part, the Pentagon is preparing to place a number of large orders to replenish the US stockpiles drained of billions of dollars’ worth of weapons and military equipment over the past year.

It’s not the first – nor last time – the “merchants of death” have moved in on a global catastrophe.

so what is your solution 'vibes ?

stop the assistance and hand it to potin ?

think he'll be satisfied ?

I don't .

What is happening was planned, for decades. Some of the previous management must be really pissed that they missed out on all the action and bonuses.

But for the current executives ...

if i may make a guess as to what the poo boy intends to do with glorified ww2 era tanks en mass

i think a few of the yooks have worked it out

and its a very rushtard style of tactic

the yooks referred to it as a zerg swarm attack ( used as a description of some of the rushtard attacks on bakmut )
for those unfortunates unfamiliar with ' starcraft ' it was the last of the three popular strat games to come out .. command and conquer then warcraft then starcraft .. the zergs were a race of insectivoids .. the zerg swarm attack was basically a mass attack of low level low cost zerglings

my guess is that is what is being planned .. a mass attack with museum pieces to overwhelm the yook higher tec defence lines

the yooks need the A10 ... for this type of attack it is without peer
the rushtards will be advancing fast and will not be able to use high tec air cover for fear of the yook air defence that could still be in pockets way behind the advance front

all just a guess at this point .. but i think plausible
if the yooks get the A10 soon it may stop it ever happening
although the rushtards have shown themselves to be an excessively stupid lot and may well carry on regardless .. the A10 in that case could be a war winner

Man, PA is really a heaven for trolls, so many idiots replying. Makes their day.Every reaction is glory to their greatness.

Anyway, Ukraine news is the normal, a plane shot down, a railroad Himarsed, Bakhmut holds for now.
Only really news; Peskov said Russia is preparing for a long war, and everything points to that. So in short.
Kremlin refuses diplomacy on Ukraine: The goals of Russia in the case of Ukraine cannot be achieved by political and diplomatic means, they will be achieved by the military.

So that is the end for the tankies reasoning; we should talk about piece and do not send weapons. Russia is not listening to that. Russia is all in.

How about Afghanistan 2021? Sure there were diplomatic negotiations prior, but the taliban rolling into Kabul forced the US out much sooner than agreed to and thus ended the war.

Did the VC and NVA troops overrunning Saigon not effectively ended the war in 1975?

Where there no negotiations and civil gov't determining in advance what the reaction was going to be? My understanding is that in both cases, the military was leaving. If left to a military decision on how to respond, the US forces -could- have escalated massively.

My favorite ex mil Trumper is now watching Arabic sites and becoming convinced his support for Ukraine was in error. The stories of Ukraine competence are news propaganda. Ukraine is the most corrupt country in the world and was the leader in sex trafficking before the invasion. They need to gift Putin half their territory and hope the war stops.

Ukraine needs to counterattack fast and hard, before the US proves fickle. The far right propoganda machine is hard at work on behalf of Russia. Likely he’s seeing links to Arabic sites on some conservative board. Meanwhile I find TVP interesting, showing the Polish view.

There was some of this tanky nonsense on the left as well.
The Nation and CJR had it. It was driven by vanden Heuvel and her husband, Stephen Cohen, who has since passed.

That's O/K - the Cold war ended when the USSR was bankrupted by trying to keep up with the West - this time they will get bankrupted the same way only it's unfortunately a shooting war.

Wow. All Putin had to do to mess up the grand scheme of the US MIC was cancel the invasion. What a missed opportunity.
