There's combat footage out there. Doesn't look like anything is gone that can't be replaced. They did the job.

Oh, and far more than 50 - 113, last report - plenty more where they came from. :smt045

(You'll see it soon. Russian friendlies are now sharing it out.)

Remember that time in April when Putin didn't go anywhere near the frontline, but did visit the headquarters in Shchaslyvtseve? Yeah, he won't be doing that again and apparently it's much closer to the frontline now. Well, the smoking pile of concrete and dust is anyways. [icon_lol2.gif]

The combat footage forums are alive with lots of clips of armor getting destroyed.

The Russian Helicopters are in their perfect environment - advancing tanks and columns with no air support.

Also crazy to see so many very expensive tanks getting taken out with drones that cost a few thousand dollars. There is a clip of suicide drones taking out a tank a 3 armored carriers literally one-by one within minutes. 10's of millions of dollars gone for the price of a used Honda.

Everyone makes fun of Russia for being poor but Frank Herbert knew what happens when you have a society with the most oppressive conditions - you get a very tough and innovative and adaptable group of people. The US military actively shorts certain groups amenities, equipment and comforts to ensure they stay highly adaptable.

Russia is Salusa Secundus.

Kyiv

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau paid a surprise visit to Kyiv on Saturday as the Ukrainian military stepped up its long-anticipated counteroffensive to drive the Russian army out of occupied eastern and southern regions of the battered country.

Trudeau arrived in the Ukrainian capital as President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's government struggled to assess the damage and mount further downstream evacuations following the destruction of the giant Nova Kakhovka dam. The prime minister is in Ukraine with Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland.

Amazing when you think of the last 6 months really, Leopards! Bradleys! NATO training! Hype! "We're comin for ya Putin!'

And all of it blown away in the last few days and the days to come. And foretold too... the common consensus amongst people with a modicum of understanding was "suicide mission".

This is where things get really dangerous, the West has no Plan B. It was always Wunderwaffe + NATO training + Ukie morale = win bigly, Putin overthrown, USA USA!

Pretty quick the Ukrainians will turtle and try to save their remaining forces. So at that point... what? We have no more weapons, they have no more men. Thats my concern is the Ukrainians will say "you said whatever it takes, NATO troops now!"

The alternative is Blinken/Nuland resign in shame, and I think theyd rather destroy the world than lose.

Actually good politics, he knows when to turn up. Skip town while the China thing and fires are happening, get some great photo-ops, drop a few bucks and off he jets again.

Engaging targets at +10kms these tanks can't even see what is hitting them.

I feel bad for them.

The only defense at that range is preventing the helicopters from taking off at all. The KA-52 was literally designed for this type of theater. Open wheat fields filled with advancing tanks. The Russians have everything mined so all the vehicles get funneled into killboxes and that's that the Russians just pick em off.

Trampolina Baerbok of Germany - makes a fool of herself in Brazil [icon_lol2.gif] [icon_lol2.gif] [icon_lol2.gif] [icon_lol2.gif] [icon_lol2.gif] she's dumb.

Germany's fanatically pro-war Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock went to Brazil, a country with a 20 percent poverty rate, and complained that average Brazilians care more about the price of rice and beans than they do about the Ukraine proxy war

Jackson Hinkle laughs at the warlord of Ukraine - Trampolina Baerbok who tells Brazilians they are more concerned with food like rice and beans than they are with a country thousands of kilometres away.

Why would a Brazilian want to flush $billions into a war for big business men in America and Germany?

I don't see you fighting, but you definitely do get credit for your unwavering support of fascist imperialism.

Speaking of burn... it appears the Russians are doing a lot of that in the last 24 hrs on the left bank.
