The UA artillery is just relentlessly carving up the orcs.

UA getting within gun range of Russian MLRS's is just fucking astounding, not because the UA artillery has great range, but because those MLRSs should be farther back.

We focus on all of the other shit that Russia is doing to turn off nations as a whole, but these two examples are the stuff that turns off a lot of people.  It's something that turns off a lot of people considering tourism in various countries.

For sure. I’m a huge proponent of changing peoples minds about America(ns) by showing up, showing interest and dropping some money. Soft power works. Missed my opportunity to do that in Russia for a while it seems.

Let’s not go casting too many stones about jingoistic “patriotism.” It’s not unique to Russia.

Oh I'm not, but I love the idea of him whipping the crowd up to fight for Mother Russia, knowing what an actual shitshow their military and military leadership is.

Hell, this almost feels like some kind of scene out of WWII (USSR or USA).

The one thing grabbing my attention is  the bombing of conscription centers.  Perhaps they know more than we think, but they have no way to object that does not involve a gulag stay - so they secretly do what they can.

Sending the minority boys from Poorasshitistan to fight and die is one thing.  Embarrassing, but too far away.  Russians are racist as fuck - and Mongols dying does not move the needle.   Once Moscow gets draft notices for their men and boys, we may see some different pushback.   Those big city fucks prolly have a much better idea how badly they are meat-grinder fodder.

Regarding tourism and investment:

Cartels : Mexico :: Kremlin : Russia

It’s a wet blanket on foreign investment when the legal system doesn’t work, the cops work for the criminals, and tourists sometimes get held hostage.

And I mean this in the nicest way possible.  The Ukrainian people are awesome and resilient.  But the eurotrash techno music they play in all the clips of Russian stuff getting blowed up needs to stop.  My ears are bleeding.

If the Russians spent the same amount of money on their military as they do on their state media studios or these concert places…their military would probably be better equipped.

Have you seen Putin’s yacht and house by Sochi? ~$2+ Billion on just those two line items. I don’t know exactly how many T-72’s you could refurbish, overhaul, upgrade, etc. with $2B; but I’m pretty sure it’s “all of them”. I believe someone said Putin’s yacht cost more to build that a replacement Moskva would.

Here is a graphic with casualties per region. Noticeably light is Moscow, St Petersberg, and....Chechnya. TikTok warriors still surviving all of those intense firefights with those traffic lights.

North Ossetia up there near the top of the per capita death rate in Ukraine.  Maybe South Ossetia needs to reconsider its planned vote to join Russia.

I'm wondering if Turkey is going to dump some of their Russian hardware for American.  Also, there was this article month ago about Turkey wanting 40 more F-16s and 80 modernization kits for existing fighters (https://www.reuters.com/world/us-says-potential-f-16-sale-turkey-would-serve-us-interests-nato-letter-2022-04-06/).
Or hell, perhaps the US might open them up to the F-35 program.
And I'm also wondering if a bunch of countries are lining up to buy some of the stuff Turkey is making.  Ukraine has put out quite the highlight reel for Turkish drone sales alone.
Turkey coming back in on the F-35 is a nonstarter from those that I know on Air Staff.

Well they probably aren’t buying the s-400 anymore. Seems like the supply chain for those just got wrecked. So we have the upper hand in that negotiation when they come calling for weapons systems. We can tell them we will sell them upgraded F-16s or maybe even the new F-15 and they’ll just have to like it. The price of their insouciance.

McDonalds trying to sell its 850 stores in Russia, with 62,000 employees.  That means they won’t be coming back.  Putin still master strategist.  

https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/16/business-food/mcdonalds-russia-exit/index.html

I guess in Russia the franchises aren't owned by individuals? Or perhaps McDonalds is just trying to help package a massive deal? Interesting.

Really dumb question:  how can chips from dishwashers be compatible with advanced weaponry?

There are lots of general microcontrollers that can be programmed to do a variety of things.  One potential problem, though, is that microchips designed for military use are often tested and rated for extreme temperatures and shock, and are sometimes better shielded to prevent electrical interference.  A microcontroller from a dishwasher or other normal appliance wouldn't have any of that, and would therefore potentially be less reliable.

Looks like the Russians are stealing the Ukrainian's ideas, but their execution is much shittier.

Yeah that wasn't much of a big bada boom. 

 

Also notice their drone is hanging out WAY higher up than the Uke's drones are. They know they'll get shot down otherwise.

That coupled with no fins means you really can't control where that thing will actually land

So they are putting grenades in plastic cups so they will go off when they land when dropped from UAVs:
 

Looks like a “Just add ice” cocktail kit.

If they're chips taken from Samsung appliances, I can confirm that they'll break frequently and cost a fortune to repair.

Sweden has officially entered the NATO chat.  

https://www.bbc.com/news/live/world-europe-61461805

Norway, Denmark, and Iceland join the UK in pledging to defend Finland and Sweden if Russia attacks

Quote

Norway, Denmark and Iceland issued a joint pledge to their "Nordic neighbours", offering them support should they come under attack before their respective applications have been processed. Jonas Gahr Stoere, Norway's prime minister, said in a statement:

Together with Denmark and Iceland, Norway stands ready to assist its Nordic neighbours by all means necessary should they be the victim of aggression on their territory before obtaining Nato membership."

Quote

It’s rare to see Sweden’s two largest parties holding a joint news conference, and in such agreement, especially just months before a general election.

But Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson and Ulf Kristersson, leader of the largest opposition party, the centre-right Moderates, clearly wanted to send out a message that Sweden is united when it comes to its Nato application.

Andersson suggested it was the end of an era for her country and said she was confident that the Swedish public supported her decision.

Kristersson argued it wasn’t a time for party politics, but couldn’t contain his excitement that a policy his party has been pushing for for two decades is finally coming into fruition.

Their news conference followed a three-hour special debate in the Swedish parliament earlier on Monday.

There wasn’t a vote, but this was an important chance for opposition parties to express their views before the government’s final decision on Nato membership.

Although most offered strong support for the decision, the Left Party and the Greens remain opposed to the application.
