    What counter-offensive? Zelenskyy has said very clearly that Ukraine doesn't have the materiel for one.

    Won't be this spring likely summer when they have all their western tanks, IFV's and other armored vehicles. 65-70k NATO trained troops will be the spearhead of the western equipped offensive and they are going to take a huge chunk of their country back.

    via Reuters
    "China needs the capability to shoot down low-earth-orbit Starlink satellites and defend tanks and helicopters against shoulder-fired Javelin missiles, according to Chinese military researchers who are studying Russia's struggles in Ukraine in planning for possible conflict with U.S.-led forces in Asia.
    The excellent performance of 'Starlink' satellites in this Russian-Ukrainian conflict will certainly prompt the U.S. and Western countries to use 'Starlink' extensively" in possible hostilities in Asia, said a September article co-written by researchers at the Army Engineering University of the PLA.
    The authors deemed it "urgent" for China - which aims to develop its own similar satellite network to find ways to shoot down or disable Starlink. SpaceX did not respond to a request for comment.
    U.S. Central Intelligence Agency Director William Burns has said that Xi has ordered his military to be ready to invade Taiwan by 2027, while noting that the Chinese leader was probably unsettled by Russia's experience in Ukraine."

    I thought the Pacific was a region where tanks wouldn't matter.

    That was a serious turret toss!

    But its a cut up version of various engagements and mix of ordnance doing the damage while showing only St Javelin clips, and at least one clip is quite old and not in the same area as the others. Not that it matters much when the outcome is the same.
    As a general observation, AFU (using the term broadly) seems to have started to release things that are obviously cut together, much more so than before, turning it into formula 1A of propaganda vids.
    I dont blame them but its not a "good look", I dont see why they need to. If that makes any sense to say in this fucked up situation.

    Edit: As for China, those comments is probably true in the broader sense. They are overall a risk factor here... Tinfoil hat is telling me that Putler would be willing to give up control of areas close to China in exchange for weapons at this stage.

    Oh man, i was like 11 years old when that thing was broadcast and i was fascinated . My parents on the other hand were disgusted too much bling bling for them....
    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?

    Eh, didn't know this one, although Dschingis Khan was admittedly my favorite band when I was a little boy. Saw them the first time in the national ESC qualifier (if I'm not mistaken) and was totally hooked.

    Somewhere in this house exists a tape cassette with a recording of me singing along to "Moscow" From Dschingis Kahn. I must have been around 10? or younger?
    It's very catchy when you are that age. (or drunk I guess) Also, if there is not a war on. That kind of takes the fun out of it.

    Fun fact: what he did with Milli Vanili was his Modus operandi since Boney M and Dschinghis Khan. It only became an issue with Milli Vanili.

    An explosion in a St Petersburg cafe has killed prominent Russian military blogger Vladlen Tatarsky, Russia's Interior Ministry has confirmed.
    Interior Ministry sources quoted by Russia's RIA news agency said a bomb was hidden in a statue presented to Tatarsky in a box as a gift.

    The cafe targeted on Sunday was previously owned by Yevgeny Prigozhin, the head of Russia's notorious Wagner mercenary group,
    Cyber Front Z, a group calling itself "Russia's information troops" on Telegram, said it had hired out the cafe for the evening.
    Here i was thinking innocent people got hurt.
