Seems about right, tack on another 300-400,000 wounded for half a million total.

That also kind of jives with reports of Russian casualties in the 80-100,000 range.

That works out to about a 1:5 ratio for Russian losses vs. Ukraine. We have been hearing 1:8 or 1:10 in the media, so in that ballpark.

Why stop there? Pinky finger to lip, millions... [icon_lol2.gif]

Meanwhile, in the real world this happened.

Image

So, the flag of the Russian Imperial Movement. A mixed bag of Accelerationism, (cool, cool, so they have that in common with some elements of the Convoy movement), Clerical fascism, Russian nationalism, Russian irredentism, Christian nationalism, White supremacy, Anti-communism, Antisemitism and Neo-Nazism. What's not to like? It's like Kanye West and Nick Fuentes grew penises and actually do manly things.

david D. @secretsqul123 on twitter breaks it down even further. A mismatched combination of Airsoft equipment, US knockoff multi cam uniforms and boots that are sure to render the phrase "dead man walking" a complete misnomer during the Ukraine winter. (They won't be walking long.)

Image

Run? Not this guy, unless of course he doesn't mind getting hit in the gonads by his own bayonet.

Image

Old 1st edition AK74, hands that might be clenched into a fist because he's tough, but more likely because he's cold already. At least he has his airsoft plate in the vest, one never knows when they might be hit by a paint ball. But check out the patch... Authentic Airsoft "Tactical Beard Owners Club". Scary.

Image

This guy didn't even bother with the plates in his airsoft carrier. Same AK74 his grandfather used to carry... one mag up, one mag down - so that's probably new and a watch he likely stole from a Ukrainian citizen.

At least the Neo Nazi adjuncts are well equipped for an airsoft competition - in the spring or fall seasons.

My picks of the day...

Um, ok, thanks for the detailed uniform analysis. I guess the point being, again (sigh), "crazy dumb rooskies"?

Did you not see that leaked document " instructions from Kiev", something like that. Basically a list of the talking points they push out to their bot farms and propagandists. Guess what was on there "emphasize Russian disorder, chaotic mobilization etc etc"

I just love the headlines

EU "We gonna give $18 bil to Ukraine"
Hungary "Nope"

NATO "Russias losing cause theyre using old tanks"
Reality "Russia has tanks, Ukraine? Nope"

NATO "Whatever it takes"
Reality "We got some old muskets left, those good?"

West "We are committed to rebuilding Ukraine"
Ukraine "pls send cheque for $300bil, made out to Zelensky"
Reality "How *bleep* much? Hahahaha... ciao"

It really feels like the Americans are close to surrendering, they just need an out. But Kagan posted an astonishing piece today about why Ukraine should keep fighting, contrast that with recent editorials in the WaPo and NYT saying "mmm... maybe we should talk".

Tells me the neocons and neolibs are getting scared and desperate. Hopefully some adults get to talk to the White House cabbage. Otherwise we could see a scary false flag incident to try and pull the Yanks in.

Of course, but we still get editorial license and can pick from the Russian disorder/chaos stories of our own choosing. You should be thankful I'm not publishing the details of Putin's December 1 meeting from his residence. Who would want to hear the explicit details of an old man that wears bulletproof diapers?

Image

Meh, I changed my mind.

So, the old guy slipped on the stairs and couldn't get back up. Guards helped him to the nearest sofa and medics arrived moments later to examine him, but they couldn't. The doctors had to help him to the bathroom and into the shower before they could conduct an examination of his bruised coccyx.

Image

What a crappy job that would be - eh?

By the way, what happened to all the stories about how he's about to die due to some deadly disease? Supposedy pictures of somebody carrying a doctor's bag around just for him? Annnnnnny day now, right?

I remember your reports about the convoy of big scary black SUVs heading to the Kremlin like back in April because of a medical emergency, apparently... what came out of all that? Are they still driving? A big nothing burger? [icon_lol2.gif] (I liked this one).

You haven't heard about "Deuce"? Or seen the evidence to suggest some "DeepCake" (Yandex, google - doesn't matter) deep fakes? He's not well. That's not my opinion, it's the opinion of many Kremlin watchers. The most unfortunate thing about that is the void it leaves and the uncertainty around the obvious picks to fill it.

Yup.

Somewhat confirmed by this Ukrainian internal document that I posted back in August claiming 72,000 dead.

So, another 30K since then in three months. Roughly 10K dead Ukrainian soldiers per month.

Awful, just awful. Ukrainian govt trying to convince their own populace it's not true, and they're about to win ... but when the European Union officials say 100,000 soldiers are dead ... hard to ignore.

Hmmm, let's see. Source of information for super secret intel? Anonymous Twitter account. [icon_lol2.gif] :biggrin: Basically garbage produced for people with zero critical thinking.

I'll give you a couple of Twitter accounts that have details on how Joe Biden is actually a robot controlled on the inside by a midget, taxes are optional, Earth is flat, and 5G causes chickenpox. The same quality super secret intel, seems reliable!

Well, if it sells advertising - I guess that works for the papers. And if it shows you lack reading comprehension skills - that works for me. Telegram. Both articles reference a telegram account. I didn't get it from either of the articles, telegram, or twitter.

Oh my goodness, that changes everything! All of a sudden your super secret intel is super reliable just because it comes from another anonymous social media network where anybody and everybody can put literally anything and millions of idiots around the world will take it at the face value without a single shadow of a doubt and then spread it further like a little robot [icon_lol2.gif] Keep it coming :130:
