Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it – no matter if I have said it! – except it agree with your own reason and your own common sense.” – Siddhartha Gautama, a.k.a. the Buddha

Maybe I’m wrong

I keep tabs on things in the Kraine, and the one thing I keep coming back to is a logistics issue. Certain talking heads in the bloggos keep mentioning how Ivan is losing his ass,,, Mehbe,,,,

Look at the logistics of things. You have one country being overrun by another, and the locals are holding,,,

BUT, NOT ON THIER OWN. There is a logistical tail attached to them that flows all the way back to DC through several Euro countries,,, Rumors of troops along with equipment (and I can well understand why they want those to remain nothing more than rumors,,,) but the Ruskies don’t have the same benefits as Krainfeld does (IE the rest of the ‘free world’ by the short hairs supplying his weapons and feed)

Cut the supply, Kraine folds like a cheap suit,,,, I have no doubts. BUT, that goes against everything they ‘stand for’, so they keep sending in our “just about ready for DRMO” gear, and that frees up the space so the Generals can buy more new toys, and the MIC gets to keep the profits flowing,

and Ukraine becomes the proving ground without our having to send in troops.

I know there are a lot of armchair warriors watching, learning, studying the tactics of the low-down against the ‘big-boy’,,, BUT lets be honest, WINNERS don’t call for help,,,, And the Ukraine has been bleating for help from the west since day one.

And if we hadn’t made it a point in Affy, our gear is sorta lacking in durability,,, A large majority of it was designed to go against modern tactics, and for all intents and purposes, ‘modern tactics’ are not the wars we will be fighting anymore. The only ‘war’ we fought using modern tactics (Call it 3G, not the 4G we saw in Nam or Affy, or the other little skirmishes we have been in,,,) was Kuwait, and that wasn’t a war so much as race across the desert. 3 days, and I slept not a wink becuase we were moving to the next position. may only have moved a mile, but we did it several times a day, and by the time we had locked in the guns, were being given orders to advance AGAIN,,, I don’t think I dropped on round off my truck until AFTER the war was ‘officially’ over (only the poor SODs in Aljuafra didn’t get the message,,,) and then it was ‘Send it all downrange, we ain’t takin’ nuthin’ back to ship,,,’

then I got some sleep, sitting on the beach waiting to load up on the jollyboats to get back on the Tarawa,,,

I have no love for this shit. I have said it here, that the whole thing, BOTH SIDES, smells of grift and graft to milk the people, of both sides, of their means; all to keep the shell game of the Twentieth Century alive and well. That shell game started in 1913 and expanded when we made trade sanctions with some assbackwards tribes and turned them into Oil Kings,,,

That shell game is about to collapse, from several reasons, but the ‘owners’ of that game,,,,

—————————————————————— I gotta get to work and my brain is running on four tracks right now,,, if this is confuzzed, that’s why. more later and maybe a bit more coherent.

    One of the better takes I have seen on this mess “ they keep sending in our “just about ready for DRMO” gear, and that frees up the space so the Generals can buy more new toys, and the MIC gets to keep the profits flowing,”. That pretty much sums it up completely and concisely.

    I wonder if this is lost on the armchair generals going rheeeeeee about tactics/winners/losers. I reckon it is.

    Whole damn world seems to be showing the fault lines that have been present for ages, just deep and wide enough now TPTB barely care enough to even try to hide it. The populace so apathetic as not to see it.

    Getcher popcorn, this is a hell of a movie aint it?

    I’d venture to say , that both sides of this are basically doing just that . Stimulate the home industry and use up old crap.
