    I like a good gloat at the latest Russian fuckup, but I'm just a random twat. These statements seem massively counter-productive.

    This is probably (hopefully) calculated. When Rus is threatening to bust out nukes, NATO can either go, "we aren't assisting, Ukraine is on there own", which no one will believe, or "heck yeah we are assisting the war efforts, maybe Rus needs to give up this hopeless cause."

    A week ago, it was reported that the Norwegian army test fired a bunch of old mothballed M109 mobile artillery pieces. The test firing was apparently a success, but no one said why they were testing them.

    In completely unrelated news, a Antonov 125 has landed at the military part of Oslo airport two days in a row. No one is telling why the plane is there.

    Ukraine will need a lot of support and a steady fast supply line for offensive operations to kick the Russians out, estimated five brigades (40k troops) drilled and equipped by NATO.

    A TB2 just bombed a Project 11770 Serna-class landing craft in front of the boat ramp at Snake Island. Depending where it sunk and the existence of another boat ramp on the island, Russia might have lost the ability to unload any vehicle, not amphibious, on the island. Pretty munch goodbye air cover considering Ukrainian bombed an SA-15 there not long ago.
    Catch 22: Russian navy could try to provide air defense by positioning a Project 11356R/М Admiral Grigorovich class frigate which would would be tied by the anti-air bubble it can project and make for an even juicier target.
    Probably means as well that the video of the Project 11356R/М Admiral Grigorovich was fake and this event happened instead. Could explain ambulances at the naval base.

    I still like this site for updates on the war.
    https://www.understandingwar.org/bac...nflict-updates

    It has an interesting update for yesterday, it seems Ukraine arms are not only counterattacking in the north, while having enough defence in the south and east, they're making considerable gains and the site calls it an counteroffensive.
    https://www.understandingwar.org/bac...sessment-may-6


    I read about that Germany is now delivering 7x Panzerhaubitze 2000, with the Netherlands 5x. First i thought well only 7 what a pity as the US delivered like 90 howitzer but then i checked what that Panzerhaubitze 2000 is capable of. 12 of this thingies alone are bad juju for Russia, they come with counterattacking radar, smart ammo and the fire rate... holy shit.

    Does a population have informed consent when that population is not taught the inner workings of its monetary system, and then is drawn, all unknowing, into economic adventures?

    Good that NL did that, also its 2/3 of our arty capability. Better there than here in a garrison tho.

    I hope not. I'm legit worried the "different route" is nukes.

    I thought I was done with that shit after the 80's.

    Also, living well within instant-kill range of a major U.S. City first-strike target, so fun times.

    Putin may be just insane enough to end all of humanity.

    Because I'm affraid it will result in even more resentment and will sow further chaos in the time when united and firm stand with regards how to deal with what's happening is of utmost importance. Ie today police in Berlin confiscated Ukrainian flag from protesters and it all landed on twitter. You can guess what followed. Or Portuguese Communist Party codemning Ukraine for russian aggression. I expect a lot more dumb and tone deaf decisions from politicians suddenly forced to deal with cognitive disonance of their lifetimes.

    Still no declaration of war and mobilization (day is still not over).
    Have to admit I did not expect this.
    Why is it called earth, when it is mostly water???

    Allegedly Russian men of all ages are receiving general mobilization notices.

    Not saying it cant happen or is not happening, but unless Russia is running out of bond paper or printer ink, why reuse a 2021 notice?
