This time we're fighting with the Nazis!
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.

Should I post 6 pictures of this and present it from 4 different angles too? Nah, this is something on it's own.

Poland has arrived in Kherson with aid - and it's an impressive showing.

(PS: 4 days old, same battle, different pictures. But hey, if that's all you've got to work with - that's all you've got to work with.)

Well, it's hard to fit 11 (?) pieces of equipment into one picture [icon_lol2.gif]

Interestingly enough, these pictures represent half. HALF. of mine breaching vehicles given to Ukraine

I don't know about you, but I love Kyrylo Budanov's latest video! (Turns out he's not dead, huh, who knew? And that seemed like it came from such a reliable source too.)

It's 33 seconds long. I'll save you the trouble of viewing it...

That it, that's all. He blinks, maybe even twice.

Oh, I loved it too. For a different reason, but go with me here for a bit. Because Kyrylo Budanov has been running his mouth (along with the entire Ukrainian leadership team) about future plans FOR MONTHS non-stop.

The same silence-loving Kyrylo has been mouthing his plans for Crimea, dates, promises, and threats.

Budanov reveals post-invasion plans of Russian supporters in Crimea

Next three months to determinate course of events in war
Budanov predicted on Sept. 30, 2022, that the Ukrainian Armed Forces would enter Crimea by the end of Spring 2023.
And there are hundreds of links with their plans and everything.

But now, all of a sudden, the man who made plans to enter Crimea in the Spring of 2023 (it's summer now by the way, and the operations of "Scrap Metal Galore" is well on their way), decided to shut his pie hole because none of what he promised came even close to reality, and it's utterly obvious to the world that has been waiting for the counteroffensive since January - the counter-offensive that they were also planning and promising all this time.

I also liked the video of Ukrainian soldiers doing the "SHHHHHHHH!" in snazzy outfits - also for the same reason [icon_lol2.gif]

Here is a link to the author of, How the West brought war to Ukraine, speaking.
Not his opinions, just facts.
Russia has lost 1/7th of its population over the years due to countries pushing itself upon or inside Russia's borders. Its called threatening, and NATO needs to back off. This all started well before Feb. 24th. Firing off test missile's months before this all started 15km from a super powers door step is ignorance. Time to take a step back to test the theory that just maybe threatening another country constantly with expansion onto ones doorstep is actually the reason for this. Is there a need to build a NATO wall around Russia? Right now people are suffering because the US seems to think so.
Why is it every time the US pushes its dominance upon others, its starts a war.
The people of Ukraine are being victimized by both Russia and the USA.
Now the US is floating war ships and planes around China, and guess what, China is giving them more than enough warnings to back off.

Breaking: Russia

Any day now... https://twitter.com/i/status/1668288030141198336 Now I could be wrong, but that guy that looks like Putin seems to be mouthing an English word. Is Shoigu's first name Buck?

This one is ten minutes, lots of backstory... Wagner all signing MoD contracts in days, but certainly worth the watch...
https://twitter.com/i/status/1668427104546086912

I see we're going to airmail some Bradleys... like there was ever any doubt.

Russia - we destroyed your Bradley. Ukraine - Blyat, I spilled my coffee. USA - We got a desert full of these, make yourself another coffee. https://twitter.com/i/status/1668315047871889409

I'm still trying to figure out why Ukraine, which is currently being attacked and occupied by Russia, would want to join NATO.

Give me some more time to think about it - okay?

Sort of like Ukraine winning hearts and minds in the Donbas for 8 years?

Gee, its not like the Ukrainians are outlawing opposition and summarily arresting people for vague reasons.

Ukraine has a very real split, look at the old election maps, the "Galicians" will never be happy with Russia. And Russia doesn't give a *bleep* do they?

I think its too funny that the Yanks are gonna send more Bradleys. Huh, I wonder what'll happen to those ones [icon_lol2.gif]

I guess if the amortized cost of a Bradley is < the cost of a Russian AT missile it makes sense?

Whats next? "Well, each Ukie soldier absorbs at least 6 bullets before dying, therefore we are wearing down Russian resources"

"The Russians are incurring a lot of OT destroying all this stuff" :biggrin:

90% of the people on earth - don't like the war in Ukraine - but they support Russia
because USA is absolutely a filthy war monger country. That we all hate.

South Africa is with Russia, like all other African countries.
He stands firmly by saying " Any agenda that seems to push back the imperialist agenda is well within the policy of the EFF"
Eff is some S African thing
WHEN WILL WESTERN WAR PIGS WIND THIS UKRAINIAN GENOCIDE DOWN?????????????

BBC says tens of thousands of Ukrainians have died and Zelensky needs hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians to replace them. Yes. BBC is just that dumb.
