Not sounding like Nordstream 1 coming up to speed anytime soon?

The Krauts are playing checkers. It was NATO that took a shit on Russia. So Russia's ability to pump the gas desperately needed by a big mouth NATO member suddenly goes to zerio.

No gas for you! [/Soup Nazi's Jailer]

Germany: "We have the giant pump that you can just plug in and get it running."

Russia: "Oh! Great!! OK, we'll take two so we have a backup. WAIT!! Oh, no -- It turns out you, muthafukka, embargoed Russia -- remember?"

Russia, Eplaining As To A Child: "Your embargo means that while you have no hot water nor very much electricity at this time, in about 150 days there will be frozen dead Berliners just like it was late 1945. Ain't that a bitch, bitch? Want to eat some shit?"

AND The Krauts have nuclear reactors shuttered. Normal folks would have started revitalizing those reactors the minute any embargo affecting your fellow countrymen was planned or announced. :bang head::piss

The simpleton lack of thought, lack of understanding about leverage...just boggles the mind.

Here you have an affiliation of CLIENT STATES - which, first, ALLOWED themselves to DEPEND on a foreign power not an ally...allowed it through the puerile dogma of the Radical Greens...they BECAME client states because of these foolhardy political and economic choices and diktats by more-foolhardy leaders.

THEN, having effectively ZERO leverage - all European nations manufacture now is, finished goods and debt instruments - having this lack of leverage, watching the producer of energy do something they reject (reflexively, without thought; and unwilling to GIVE it thought)...they announce SANCTIONS. No more BMWs for you! No more Paris fashions! No more McBorscht! No more Disney movies!

How could that possibly go wrong?

Germany is going to find out. I cannot understand how GERMANS - innately intelligent people - could make such foolhardy choices. In the past they've chosen barbarous tyrants as leaders, but never have they plotted such a jackass economic course. Even Wiemar's money-printing had a point, to negate the war reparations. What is the point of this, to freeze to death and starve, to ward off a fantasy crisis, and to satisfy Malthusian Davos oligarchs?

Remember where they came from.

How they lived, where they came from. Variously, they kept camels...or wore penis gourds...many of them from regions, from tribes, unable to develop the wheel or understand some sort of roller as a way to move heavy objects.

Yeah. They're gonna get cold; they're gonna light fires and burn out a lot of Krauts. And then...Camel Central. The Eighth Century arrives!

And the Eighth Century wasn't able to provide enough agricultural surplus to feed a Berlin-sized population living in high-rises, with no contact with the soil...none at all.

New Advanced Russia Subs - New Russian Navy Doctrine​

Russia is and has been 30 years ahead of the USA in military, naval and rocket technology. So says, Dr. Ronald Cutburth. Why? Better education, no fraud, state controlled military manufacturing, culture and commitment.

Strangled by their own hands. :bang head:
Any national government that does not have the best interest of its own country as its primary duty is treasonous.

We've had these psych-ops over and over again. Typical Dem two dimensional comic book like good vs evil views of reality. Fauci good, Trump bad, Fauci the super hero. Ukraine good, Russia bad, Zelensky the super hero. It would be funny if the costs were not so great and shocking.
It's propaganda for people with thirty-second attention spans. Always, black-versus-white, and the White Hat is placed on the two-dimensional superhero the Elites demand be named. Fow Chee. Preezy-Dint Zee. Whoever it is who fits the Narrative that pushes the agenda of the moment.

For those of us who've turned off the idiot box, and who haven't forgotten how to read...it's soul-searing.

Roger Waters dropping truth grenades again - Ukraine, Russia, China​

Waters done too many drugs in his younger band days.
Mao did not kill millions of heroin addicts when he took over the country ? He killed many drug users, took a break to allow other addicts to turn themselves in or go Cold Turkey and clean up. After that time out he wiped out the remaining drug population and destroy the Opium Dens that were not found in the 1st round.
Not to mention the political factions that did not come to his side to become Communists.
Yes, before Mao Taiwan was a Chinese Provence. Once the revolution gained momentum those that could get there isolated that island and with the US/British/ Aussie support gained independence from the main land and recognized as a separate nation state.

Ukraine SitRep - Casualties Leak - Ukraine Admits Russian Breakthrough - Southern Front Paralysis​

There is an report on Ukraine making the rounds that was allegedly written by the higher command of the Ukrainian army and leaked from somewhere.

Dr.Snekotron @snekotron - 12:50 UTC · Aug 5, 2022
Ukrainian channels are discussing what might be a leaked data from AFU General Staff:
- The AFU are only at 43-48% strength
- medical workers at their limit
- small arms and armor are not enough
- 191 thousand soldiers were killed and wounded (only AFU, not including others)
- there is not enough hydraulics and liquid nitrogen for M777 howitzers
- no one cares about the missing - there are no statistics
- the equipment transferred by the West is running out
- western weapons are operated by amateurs, since there are no qualified specialists
- no way to repair weapons on the spot due to the lack of spares and specialists - everything is sent to Poland
BTW, even with this dire report, I would caution against predicting a decisive break in morale. As with Peski, the walking wounded are sent straight back into the trenches
There are some pictures of documents written in cyrillic script attached to the above tweet.

The documents look legit. The overall numbers and issues mentioned seem plausible to me. The high number of casualties (plus the missing) is not astonishing. It would be astonished though if the Russian army and its allies have more than one tenth of those. This is mostly an artillery war and the Russian side has had a vast superiority in guns and missiles.

I wonder about the M-777 need for hydraulic oil and nitrogen. Both are used in the hydraulic recoil mechanism of such guns. Back when I was in the military we had similar mechanisms in our tanks. But they did not consume oil or nitrogen due to normal operation. Only larger maintenance, like changing the gun barrel, would require a readjustment of that mechanism. Is the 'light' howitzer M-777 s

For which side? Russia I'm guessing?
