    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    The US is sending 40,000 rounds of artillery, Ukraine is using thousands per day. They’ll have enough artillery for a few weeks. We are working with partners to send more: https://theweek.com/russo-ukrainian-war/1012644/ukraine-might-be-running-out-of-artillery-rounds-us-official-warns?amp...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Sorry if I didn’t respond to this question. Here’s how I look at it “Long range missiles”, “short range missiles”, “mid range missiles”, “lower mid range missiles” “higher midrange missiles” “low altitude flying missiles” “high altitude flying missiles” … you’re getting stuck on range...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Yes I understand this W, I’m curious what makes you think I don’t? The US takes very measured steps when attacking the enemy infrastructure in Iraq, they would mostly bomb at night to ensure that civilians are not outside and getting what we coin “collateral damage.” I agree with this...

    @Stop crazy: No the article does not state that, just because the article doesn’t say that doesn’t mean it isn’t true: https://www.theage.com.au/national/3000-bombs-and-missiles-to-shock-and-awe-20030319-gdvebr.html I thought this would be common knowledge amongst people who lived through the...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Russians might be firing that much now, but it comes back to the first 10 days of the war. The US was able to gain air superiority in Iraq within its first 10 days as they were able to hack as well as destroy the Iraqi infrastructure by sending over 2,000 missiles within the first several days...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    I’m going to watch this video tonight when I have some time. No one has much insight into the Russia’s arsenal of bombs, which makes it concerning for me to leap into the fray of individuals who want us to escalate this war. Parts such as military chips are not accessible to Russia at this...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    There has been quite a bit of chatter about Russia not being able to control the Ukrainian airspace, the reason behind this isn’t because the Russians don’t have the expertise or weapons to do it. The problem was that Russia miscalculated Ukraine, and as a result, shot less short range...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    This question runs through my mind often, I don’t have an answer for this. And I don’t think our state department and defense has an inkling of an answer for us neither. Just how many of these large bombs (short of nuclear) do the Russians really have? In short, we really don’t know how many...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    I would disagree that the Russians are fronting on this, making a less powerful bomb than nukes isn’t all that difficult, the one we were able to drop weights about 30,000 pounds from what I remember. But I do agree that deploying it is the challenge. However that challenge is negated by their...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    You may want to look up Russia’s “Father of all bombs.” The bomb is reportedly four times more powerful than the US military's GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb (whose official military acronym "MOAB" is often colloquially said as the "Mother of All Bombs"). This makes it the most...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    World War 1 casualties: 15-20 million. Zero nukes dropped. World War 2 casualties: 70-85 million. Only 2 nukes were dropped on Japan killing approximately 120,000-210,000. The rest were non nuke causalities. You cannot discount China’s involvement from the equation when talking about a World...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    It’s easy to feel some form of hubris watching Russia struggle with its offensive war on Ukraine due to supply chains, this doesn’t mean Russian’s defensive system is as bad, on the contrary, they have very capable defensive systems that’ll give us problems. The issue at hand is once you start...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    All good questions. We’ve heard the slogan “amateurs talk tactics, professionals study logistics.” To put it bluntly, the answer to all your questions comes down to money, and national security. Here’s how the $13 billion funding Congress approved for Ukrainian aid breaks down: From the...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    I can’t say this about everyone here, but you’re one of the few that has intellect and the ability to decipher through vast amounts of military and political information. Most don’t understand the complexities around sending things like jet fighters and are driven emotionally to push our...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Absolutely true. some people here think it’ll be like Hiroshima where 1 nuke is dropped at a time and only a few hundred thousands will die, once MAD is triggered hundreds of nukes will be sent during phase 1 and 2, on day 1 about 50 million people will perish, day 2 close to 100 million. Each...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    I bet you most people here have no idea of something called Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD). Both the US and Russia have thousands of nukes aimed at each other to ensure that if one country fires nukes at the other, a phase 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. return fire will send a minimum of 3-5 nukes to each...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    You won’t have to worry, we have our military and intelligence looking into this. If supplies are coming from China, they’ll know. After battles, the Ukrainian military will assess the battlefield and send the US a few equipment found on the field for studies, reverse engineering, etc...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    An F15 cost $80 million a piece, a pilot shot down during war is nearly priceless as training takes years to replace. The training process is rigorous, even a healthy quarterback athlete will fail the physical attribute needed to become a fighter pilot. Whereas sending stingers costing $40k...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Ukrainians will say anything to get their hands on our fighter jets. Having 4,000 doesn’t mean much when the other side has likely drawn a red line that sending in Jets could mean a small nuke being deployed. This is a trap to get NATO involved with boots on the ground. As soon as those nukes...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    A no fly zone without military intervention is an oxymoron. In order to implement a “no fly zone” US troops would need to be sent in (which means boots on the ground), our boys would need to setup its Patriot missile system, map out the terrain and teach the system to read its surroundings, our...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    From my angle sending US made jet fighters to Ukraine is off the table for various reasons: 1 Ukrainians are not trained in utilizing American made jets. It would take years to train Ukrainians to operate them efficiently. Even high tech surface to air missile systems like the Patriot will take...

    You have to wonder if this group/party is being paid by the Russians, why are they acting as though they’re Putin’s puppet? I’ll bet they’ll either be featured on Fox News, or end up working as a news anchor for Fox.

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    If Russia can’t get its hands on vital parts for their military then they’ve already lost this war. With morale being low, recruits being called and handed WW2 guns it’s only a matter of time. I think the US politicians in charge understands that Russians generally doesn’t deal with military...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Really sanctions haven’t saved one life Ukraine? You mean the sanction that’s pretty much brought Russian tank production to a halt? The same sanction that has stopped the Russians from getting their hands on smart chips that goes into jet fighters, missiles and smart bombs? The same sanctions...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    When you can’t get the parts you need to build tanks, missiles, jets, etc. and send your military into war, you’ve lost. Putin hasn’t realized this yet, but the longer this drags on, the chance he’ll survive politically dwindles.

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    If the West sends boots on the ground it’ll give Putin a propaganda tool to use Nukes in Ukraine as it would threaten Russia’s existence. How do I know? Look at Vietnam and how the communists used propaganda against the US sending boots on the ground in that country. You don’t risk losing...

    Because Nationalizing will be suicidal, it’ll mean no company will feel safe about investing in Russia, ever again. It’s a nuclear move that will end up eating Russia like cancer. If it’s so easy for Russia to get parts then why are they struggling to get tires for their military, why aren’t...

    Try to look at where China is headed, and not where it was in the past or where it is currently. Somewhere around 2030, their economy will be the world’s largest, surpassing the U.S. economy. China is currently giving up some social welfare in order to invest abroad & expand their influence...

    I agree communism didn’t work for China/Russia, China was able to pivot away from that to progress it’s economy to where it is today by a hybrid social/capitalist framework. In some ways, every Western nation has adopted more or less socialism: free education, college financial aid, medical...

    Great assessment. The only question that remains is how long can Putin’s $300 billion in reserve buy itself some needed time? If China will help in any form? And whether India or others will buy Russian oil, which will also give Russia more time. From the beginning of the invasion reporters...
