>They argue that these weapons serve forces that openly espouse a neo-Nazi ideology and cite evidence that the right-wing Azov militia, whose members are part of Ukraine’s armed forces, and are supported by the country’s ministry of internal affairs, is using these weapons.

For good measure in case anybody still wants to claim "conspiracy theory" if somebody brings up the Neonazi Army trained and equipped by the CIA and MOSSAD.

European intelligence services have been sound asleep to allow americans to play south american games here in Europe.

There is a Neonazi army, run by Jews and Americans in Europe feeding a european population to war. And european intelligence agencies have let this happen. This is beyond failure. It's even hard to explain this with negligence.

One of the most successful fast-food companies in the world believes so, and success proves them right. They have paid dividends for decades, and they will not stop paying dividends soon.

Successful franchising is about selling a working system, from the salad down to the cash register. The system does work. When fools start tweaking, they will break it.

The brand is tied to expectations. If those expectations can not be met, the brand will become meaningless and thus worthless. If the brand delivers a consistent experience, the consumer will return to the brand wherever he goes, choosing the known above the unknown. If the brand delivers an inconsistent experience, it will become worthless. Logo says 'hamburger inside tastes like this' and hamburger tastes different? That brand is a liar, do not go there anymore. Yes, people are that primitive.

some German economic centered newspaper/magazine recently wrote that most companies pulled out of Russia quickly because leaving is easier and more profitable than staying, because a) the damaging in reputation is more costly for a western business than staying in Russia selling products which b) is apparently not too much either, Russia is not a very big/important market for many western firms it seems.

It's easy to leave the market, but it's nearly impossible to return because it will be occupied by the local companies, or non-western alternatives.
They companies are basically forced to either choose to lose money or to get fucked by their respective governments.
I can guarantee you that if they will ever want to return here they will be met with chinese level restrictions and will have to spread their ass cheeks for them.

Short term this is bad of course, but long term telling foreign investors to fuck off will make it easier for local investors to make money here.

No, the point is exactly that they didn't actually "pull out", they just made it seem like it. They closed the stores, but the companies themselves still exist with the employees and the properties, but without providing services. They suspended operations to appease western audiences while trying to stay one foot in the door in Russia, even if it's not that big of a market.

Well not just in the web. I saw some time ago some half-assed appeal by some politician to the people not to discriminate against russians in Germany, but it missed the usual fervor like if were about brown people. Russians are basically nazis anyway.
The best thing though was that Heckler & Koch pulled their workers of russian nationality or even just russian descent from some "safety relevant" positions (https://www.tagesspiegel.de/politik/arbeiteten-im-sicherheitssensiblen-bereich-heckler-und-koch-versetzt-mitarbeiter-mit-russischen-wurzeln/28149784.html).

>In many Western countries, people are subjected to persecution just because they are originally from Russia. They are being denied medical care, their children are expelled from schools, parents are losing their jobs, and Russian music, culture, and literature are being banned. In its attempts to “cancel” Russia, the West tore off its mask of decency and began to act crudely showing its true colours. One cannot help but remember the anti-Semitic Nazi pogroms in Germany in the 1930s, and then pogroms perpetrated by their henchmen in many European countries that joined the Nazi aggression against our country during the Great Patriotic War.

Devilish even. In the video that the Russian MFA posted, it included a segment of that Irish truck breaking through the embassy gates. This could easily be construed as something against the Russian government as opposed to "russophobic", but the leadership is hell bent on connecting hate towards the Kremlin with hating Russian speakers.

This is basically expats everywhere. It's easy beig nationalistic if you don't have to live there. One third of turks in Germany voted for Erdogan, that is two thirds of those allowed to vote in turkish elections.
Imagine having a german diaspora somewhere that had a 60% approval rate of the AfD.
I also know a guy from Morocco who avoided his expat countrymen like hell because he said they were all stuck in the 60s islamic shithole mindset and the present country is really not like that.

From the late 19th century German immigrant community, funny last names remain. New northern European arrivals are just people who moved here to retire, they're all right even if a bit odd.

You're only a russophile when you see russians that act in the way you would like them act. We've talked before and it's rather obvious that your opinions are hardly different from the generic opinion of an average westerner.
I think you have a very warped understanding of russia in general, which makes sense considering the state of the western societies nowadays that remind me of 1930s.

We have a plurality of opinions, any place and any group of people does, and to your information, westerners are slightly more into individualism and so on, all powered by freedums, not being beat down for 70 years by an authoritarian government and less conservatism does that.

>considering the state of the western societies nowadays that remind me of 1930s.
So, could you elaborate further? I doubt anything resembling our current reality will come out of it but I am all ears.

>Extreme conformity disguised as non-conformity.
I kekd, "your" society is more conformist than ours, make dealings. Factors are as mentioned above, more conservative bs and the fucking soviet union. How about you search for something about culture and individualism? Guess the internet is good for something, heh?

>Eat the same, watch the same, read the same, THINK the same. And whenever someone says something different he's instantly attacked by the drone horde cause that's a clear indicator of a thought crime.
Meh, it is worse over there at your place. What are the metrics you use to measure this shite? How did you even come to this warped conclusion?
Humans may be simple creatures who hate others because of perceived differences, they gather in groups of similar minded people and hate groups of "others", humans fear being ostracized, humans fear the unknown, all traits your society has and mine does too, but your shithole actually does magnify this behaviour.

>The cultures of economically developed regions such as Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, North America and Western Europe are the most individualistic in the world. Middle income regions such as Eastern Europe, South America and mainland East Asia have cultures which are neither very individualistic nor very collectivistic. The most collectivistic cultures in the world are from economically developing regions such as the Middle East and Northern Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, South and South-East Asia, Central Asia and Central America.

So basically when you think about an independent person you think about some sort of nonconformist who does things that are unpopular because they are unpopular in this society.
Just like this nonconformist you fail to understand that the society comes second. It comes after the individual not before.

Multiple of independent individuals united by a common goal - form a collective. This collective is the perfect form of human interaction with eachoether.

Democracy is inferior because it puts the LAW, the SYSTEM, the SOCIETY above the individual.
I believe that an individual does not need authority of any sort or law of any sort and that a communty of people can exist without laws.
So in that sense i think that breaking up and igniting democracies across the globe is necessary to free people from the rule of law.

Wut? I could advocate for a system which does not benefit me, say like a system with high taxes which I have to pay to finance a social or solidarity program which takes care of orphans... Why would I? Because I think this is gud. Just an example of course.

Why is it shitty?

Of course i were a monarch or some royalty or the slave owner i would defend monarchy or slavery too. DUUUUUH.

So, how will society function without all of that? Since I think people are stupid I also think that laws are a needed evil. And yes, despite my "want to be free" or individualism, how will the protection of weaker members of society be organized if I happen to want just that? I mean I could want to rape and pillage with my imaginary goons... After all I think that my freedom ends where someone else's freedom begins and vice versa, it is complicated.

>What is so bad about "the law"? Sure, arbitary laws may often be a pain or outright nonsense, but most laws do make sense.
Nothing is wrong with the law when you describe it as "thing written on paper". What is wrong is when people are AFRAID of breaking the law and turn it into a fetish.
People should not be afraid of breaking the law.
People should be conscious enough to NOT break the law while being aware that they CAN break the law and get away with it.

How to achieve this? Education. More education. The more - the better.

Do people do that? Maybe people should be afraid of breaking the law? Jaywalking? Who cares. Arson for the lulz? Ehhhh, now that requires punishment.

>People should not be afraid of breaking the law.
There are different laws. From don't jaywalk to don't fucking murder, different shit requires different punishments coded in law. We could start a discussion on the state, the organs, division of power, monopoly on violence...

Just with this I can agree, I am always an advocate for education.
I am also an advocate for free healthcare (taxed), free education (again through taxation) and so on, at the least the basics should be covered, luxuries like expensive artisan sweets or other crap aren't necessities and can be bought with own money. Duh.

Read the experiments and papers. There are a shit ton of examples of people who go insane (or worse) if social needs are not met, but you can also find data for the other points of the pyramid.

a) No, I do not think so, it is AT LEAST one of the following imo:
a.1)-The post is considered retarded/does not confirm to reality and thus backlash
a.2)-typical imageboard banter
a.3)-a reaction to the other posts you made before
For me it is .1 and .3 with a bit of .2. Well... Well......
Anyway, I could and can see how one would come to that conclusion, but you are mistaken. Your takes are just shit, sry bra.

Your radical opinion on (non)conformism is an age old debate

>thought is being suppressed

No, you are allowed to spill your opinion on this board day by day. I repeat to you again, democracy does not mean everybody has to agree with you.
And btw things like social deviance and social control have been studied by academics in western democracies for a decades. It is not denied that even democratic western societies have norms. Your views on nonconformism and conformism are not very complex, differentiated. You simply think because your opinions differs from others it is a good opinion, it's not the opinion that counts then, but what counts is its difference, a wholly abstract thing that you value, detached from any concrete reality that could be the actual object of an argument, or a conversation, which frankly is not excluding each other, we are not here to talk about the weather.
Also, your problem is that you can think you can separate individuals and society when both only exist because of a difference that is made between them in order to define and determine both concepts (which is thought to correspond to something in reality).

So far I've only seen scoped versions of the Mosin-Nagant, which is a comparatively decent choice for a dedicated sniper rifle even now (not so much for a marksman rifle, of course, but I have no idea how exactly those are used).

I wouldn't call it decent compared to modern alternatives. Obviously with a constrained budget you might call it decent but same applies to the DP. They both still work just fine for what they were designed for. Not sure I'd like to use something like a Suomi-KP when the opponents have body armor.

Frankly, it's almost everything you can squeeze out of the 7,62x53mm match round in terms of long-range accuracy. Surely there are better rifles of that kind, but they would utilize rare ammunition and would be more expensive by orders of magnitude - not something your average army can usually allow.

I've read few first texts, then realized how many of them are there and read few most interesting of the rest.
My favorite: https://nitter.net/kamilkazani/status/1498692916511924232

I don't know anything about Medieval Chechen history or modern warfare theory (besides that in Civ5 helicopters beat tanks), so I can't judge him on it. But for topics I'm informed about, I've mostly come to similar conclusions. Remember of explaining some of same things to westerners here on EC.
He's done a great work. It's easier to say what I disagree with him about:

First text: the headline is clickbait. In it he says that Russia will lose the war, but doesn't actually prove it. Yes, Russian army fucked up really badly at first. Yes, moral of troops is low. Yes, they'll have to level cities to grounds (already doing it). But they have superiority in numbers against Ukraine. Not just in zergs, but also in aviation, artillery and so on. So I'm not convinced.

> Huge asymmetry in online visual info creates a certain bias. It seems that Ukraine is flooded by huge amounts of Russian troops, but it's not quite obvious whom they are fighting with. Ukrainian army stays in shadow. That's perhaps why so many observers thought Russia won
That's probably like that on Twitter where gore and violence is banned. On boards such asymmetry creates opposite effect: you see a lot of DEAD Russian soldiers. Corpses, combat footages (where hohols blast Russian tanks), videos of Russian captives calling their mothers and so on.
Some sosachers take address of registration from dead soldiers IDs (from https://t.me/rf200_now ) and look it up on Google maps (if settlement if big enough for streetview -- usually army is the only job opportunity for villages and small dying towns). Imagine spending whole life among rotten barracks at Dzerzhinsky's street only to die 19 years old God knows what for. At least most of streetviews are taken on summer, thus it's not so depressing.
A huge irony is guy who was born in Chernigov, emigrated to Russia, joined army and died fighting against his motherland (maybe even near Chernigov).

Also in general he's biased in favor of ethnic minorities, which roots in him being Kamil Galeev (not Ivan Ivanov). But that's a minor stuff.

You just basically repeated what I said about being budget-constrained. Also surprising that they'd use 7.62x53mm. Did Finland supply those mosins?)))

We still do use mosins as snipers in the form of TKIV 85 which is just slightly modernized version with decent optics unlike the PUs on the "separatist" mosins. So if when Russia invades Finland there's still gonna be mosins around. Though TKIV 85 is now being replaced some sort of a AR-10 and AR-15 style rifles chambered in 7.62x51 NATO but the old rifles will still remain in stockpiles.

His point is that wars are won not by military victories, but strategic victories.

Strategic goal was to take kiev in blitzkrieg. That's failed. You could have another goal - annex ukraine. Occupy 40m country with what troops?
And what about political goals?

The only question here is what the conditions of the loss will be; either back to status quo with hurt ecenomy, concessions, or internal collapse.

The strategical goal in my opinion was to start something in the first place.
Maybe it was the goal of Biden, maybe Putin was forced to invade because the other option is that Ukraine joins NATO and then it's even more problematic that before because it will effectively create intermarium. Maybe Biden did not expect Putin to invade and it took him by surprise.
From my point of view it's too early to draw conclusions. This is something that has JUST happened. Geopolitical repercussions will follow in the next few years.
From now on a more or less clear frontline has been created between the "west" and the "east".
The entire world currently in my opinion is in the state of chaos and nobody understands what is going on.

One thing is clear - the old post-cold-war world order is not coming back, there is no way to revert back.
I believe we will see more wars and possibly revolutions happening in the next decade.
China and Taiwan is currently a hotspot.

Machine translation:
The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation refutes the information of the Ukrainian General Staff about the allegedly large-scale losses of the Russian Armed Forces in Ukraine. According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, during the special operation in Ukraine, the Russian Armed Forces lost 9861 people killed, 16153 people were injured.

I'm kinda wondering where Russia will be headed politically if this war is eventually resolved via compromise between Russia, Ukraine and the EU (if it doesn't turn into a decade long shit show) .

Because?..
That's considerable, but reasonable losses, given all the factors. In early March I myself predicted the losses of about 30k in the scenario of the complete military defeat of Ukraine (probably would slightly increase the estimates now). For reference, in the active phase of the Second Chechen war (which lasted less than a year) we've lost just about 5 to 6k troops dead.

That's definitely what the ruling elites would at least attempt to do. Russia is just too dependent on the EU in the long term.

Sadly, I see no sufficient grounds for liberalization. At least it's inconsistent with what the government has been doing since the early 2000s.

In normal times, I think Germans shouldn't even be allowed to wear boots lest they get silly ideas but, all things considered, a central and rich democratic republic in Europe should maintain a functional military. The Germans need to play their part in the greater framework of European security. I think European defence is paralyzed in part because of its Atlantic overdependence and partly because of the EU federal army question. Personally, I support the creation of a limited federal overseas force that could ensure the EU is capable of carrying out necessary things without exclusively relying on Americans. That the EU was not able to deploy a force to Afghanistan that would assist in the evacuation of EU citizens after the Americans jumped ship from their failed venture is pathetic. however, the idea of a single federal army is psychotic and should be opposed vehemently

If a country as militaristic as France is capable of being the last EU military power in a responsible manner, the German Federal Republic could also play a part in that.

I'm not talking about the nature of the conflicts but the effects. The poor performance and huge losses are a great way to lose support for the war. And there's gonna be a lot angry moms and dads, brothers and sisters back home for those 26k casualties.

>That would amount to about 6% casualties
Casualties include injuries. Maybe some return to fight but generally you don't apply a bandage to your gunshot wound and go back to fight. The news article is talking specifically about Russian losses, and if the reported 190k troops tied to the operation is accurate you 13% casualties already. And there's a good chance those numbers are optimistic for Russians.

Should i as a russian care what an average european thinks about me? I think no. I shouldn't. If someone does not like me because i don't protest against Putin and his invasion - it is his problem, not mine.

It requires really little effort in the current situation, mind you.

The centralized sanction policy of the US and the EU isn't much different: it's mostly the "overthrow Putin or suffer" kind of sanctions. Rest assured, most Russians will make certain long-term conclusions out of that situation even without the kind help from the Kremlin.

>All he did was: he didn't lie to people and just said how it is.
And he got nailed to a cross for that.

People don't like hearing the pure, unadulterated truth. Never have. The truth won't change though, especially not because of how they feel about it, and that's what most people don't seem to get. And I think that that's a problem not just of our times, but of all times. Truth dies first in any conflict. What's dangerous about that though is that everybody tries to spin their own version of the truth and it's becoming increasingly hard to tell the difference between truth and lies. The logical step then would be to take a few steps back, consider both sides and return your own verdict, but considering the majority of the people on this planet that's nearly impossible. Most people are just too dumb for that. It may sound arrogant, and it probably is, but there's always been dumb people and bright people, and dumb people are naturally against everything they don't understand.

In conclusion: I think that the Russian government is lying and in the wrong, just because people believe these blatant lies.

And what are those moms gonna do? Fight HOMO with bare hands? People in Russia are deprived and atomized. Meanwhile:
> In Russia, 914,500 people are on the staff of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. This is the third largest police force in the world (of course, after China - 1.6 million people) and India (1.5 million). At the same time, in terms of the number of police officers per 100,000 inhabitants, China (120 people) and India (128 people) lag behind Russia (623 people) by about five times. It is worth noting that all developed countries lag behind us in this indicator: in the USA, the corresponding figure is 256 people, in the EU countries - from 300 to 360. Ahead, apart from exotic islands and dwarf states, are only our closest friends - Belarus and Serbia (and it is not clear how South Sudan got into this company). In the days of USSR, 623,000 people were in the service of the Soviet Ministry of Internal Affairs and the rate of "policisation" was almost three times lower.
> However, of course, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, although the most numerous, is not the only security service in the country. Separate from it there is the National Guard, numbering up to 400,000 people, the Ministry of Emergency Situations with 289,000 employees, the Federal Penitentiary Service, which employs 295,000 people, the Federal Security Service with a secret staff, estimates of the number of which are usually 100,000-120 000 people, and with the border service - up to 200,000, the Customs Service (about 70,000), the Prosecutor's Office and the Investigative Committee (more than 60,000), Drug Control (almost 34,000), the Migration Service (up to 35,000) and a number of other less numerous in number employees of agencies such as FSO, FAPSI and the like).

People will eat grass like in North Korea but won't be able to do anything with it. Moreover, they'll be more dependent on state. It will be possible to make police or "collectivos" to suppress dissent for a pack of eggs.
In 2012 lahta shills were paid 15 roubles per post. Now rouble is several times cheaper but they still get paid 15 roubles per post. Considering that oil rent is more or less the same, number of shitposts which Putin can afford only went up.

That you are right.
Honestly people who hope for anything to happen in russia are delusional. We had a revolution only 100 years ago and another revolt 30 years ago.
Everyone is tired and nobody wants change because the history has shown that change rarely means something good for the majority of people.
Especially when you're talking about pro-western type of change like in the 90s.
A bunch of people profit off it of course, everyone else suffers.
Those who agitate for change online today - are typically the first ones to emigrate and run off when shit hits the fan.
It's the kind of people who are just looking for an excuse to become a refugee.
To be honest i find the cautious optimism and "hope" for change nauseating because it's the same as when people believe in magic or miracle.

Green party Evers German government->war starts.

This is not a coincidence. The so-called green party is the CIA-party of Germany. It has the following tasks:
1.) Deindustrialization of Germany so German industry does not become too much of a competition to the US
2.) Involving Germany in American wars, too harm Germany and to strengthen America

This is interestingly delusional.

Greens didn't start a war, they react to a war situation as strong EU country, basically leader together with France and as NATO member. They react to a war for which Putin is responsible in that he gave the order to attack Ukraine sovereignity. The tipping point.

Second, why does Intel industrialize Germany then? Crackers like you never understand that the Atlantic bridge has common interested and are allied, they both ally against more and more fragile supply chains in a multipolar world and their question of power and former dominance. You can't trust China as much as you trust EU to stay a relevant partner in supply chain organization from an US pov. hat doesn't mean that the EU and/or Germany will try to secure and stand its position and interests.

Third, Germany is the strongest and most relevant EU country and also a NATO member, a double role that it seems is to lived up to. Germans cry rivers about how bad they have it (and some are valid concerns just like as the system as a whole is organized) but seem to disregard how well off they are in comparison. This is paired with the delusional believe that Germany is always falling behind while it still excels very well on a global scale, just look at any postwar discourses on Germany in Germany and you have similar whining and yet a securing of its global position at the same time. The whining is doesn't add up to reality, but it propels a reality. Everybody jokes about the old internet infrastructure and yet Germans are the ones proposing actual concepts like Industrie 4.0 as any other world economic power is following through to secure its economic position.

My hunch is that hoarding sugar isn't about making a profit, but making sure that you and your family has sugar to last through the hard times and avoiding the incoming price hikes at least on one front. It's not as feasible to hoard flours or anything else you use on a daily basis at similar quantities since most of the stuff goes bad in a couple of years max.

Honestly I'm more an EU independence bloc supporter and mild slavophile than anything which shouldn't really matter regardless because we're nameless strangers discussing ideas on an imageboard. There's a reason I basically stopped coming here or any imageboard you know? I'm down to about 2 cigarettes a day on average, already had two because dealing with taxes and fucking FedEx, had none yesterday. Only even lurking here to see if any video of Ukraine happenings leak, and basically the whole board turned into schizophrenic shitposts by Germans. You, yourself, gradually turned into more and more of a degenerated k*hl shitposter tier, blending in to all the retarded German shitposts and stupid frog memes that were shitposts 6 years ago.

I was making fun of how downhill the entire board went for some reason, and you getting to enjoy rather than slinging shit at Americans and Russians getting to be wholly colonized by psychotic German shitposters instead for what looks like several threads worth by now. However, clearly it's not just leakage from k*hl, you among them.

Honestly at this point I'm really just skimming over der deutscher posts entirely and mainly just reading what Russia and sometimes Finland has to say, since who gives a fuck what some Iberian's got to say about this conflict. Which really gets to the root of the problem anyway and why I've come to believe habitual channers are like alcoholics, heroin junkies, and incel weebs, because basically the chans were "good"ish back when we had people like Iran and India until you'd driven then away, thus turning the whole place into basically an echochamber of the same handful of eurotrash countries saying the same sad shit about losing it to prostitutes or whatever dumb shit for ten years, and then trying to personally cast shade on someone trying to make a real argument like Russia to make up for your own inadequacies.

There's something that just rubbed me raw about the guy watching his full interview, and I did this around the time I watched some 2002 documentary on Iraq's sanctions so yeah I personally pretty much want to see them all go down at this point, and even in so doing this do I also wish to see Russia fail as well as Azov Battalion Nazis and Ukrainian nationalist militias get wiped out, to see Ukraine gain its neutral independence and friendly EU relations. I actually have a whole library full of weapon and survival pdfs, I think some interrogation techniques, explosives manufacturing, improvised weapons, intelligence asset tactics things like that, all of which I remained mum about mostly because I didn't want to have my hands dirty on being basically a fat American putting the gun into a civilian's hands and telling them to go get shotsame person who advocated boobie traps over useless feel good molotovs.

But yeah on that note I'm going to go and try spreading the word to ZZZ potato beetles to start focusing anti-Western propaganda campaign towards US led UN sanctions on Iraq and showing the suffering of whole Russian people, itself very reminiscent of Nazi tactic where they take you and 1/10th out of village and shoot you in retaliation to some partisan aktion to punish all. I hope someone can use it as the obvious idea showing Wect how evil they government is, how much bad is sanction for ordinary Russian and how VICE should come and show documentary program of sanctions effect on ordinary peoples like on Iraq, Cuba, and Iran, and how they should talk about Russian sanction as collective punishment, no?

Anyways on that last note I do wish you luck, whatever you are Russian, on someday speaking sense to them and toppling whole order to build a Christian commune on the ashes of this neofedualism or something like that. Meanwhile I'm going back to youtube and other places because I feel like I learn much more there now, even steam ffs, than this deuscher schizophrenic shitshow. P.S. just steal the fertilizer from southern Germans, retard, simple as.

Oh right and sugars and oils, while non-nytritive, are pure concentrated calories packed into very tight space.
T. Burger

Actually I'm really not joking, because at one point I had to swallow balls of flour soaked in oil to at least slow down the weight I'd been dropping. You should think about survivalism. Not, idiot with a "anti-zombie" machete, avoid the fuck out of those guys, but a real survivalist mindframe and be frugal and wise with what you have. As forget if I said this or nor, but I told people around me back in January to start stocking up on food and canned goods now. Some of them just seemed really confused, like why now, to which I said well, the logistical structure and economics are temporarily stabilizing, and you don't buy stocks at ATHs do you? You should buy when it's cheap and not sought after, then hoard it for the rough times. Millenials, zoomers, and particularly boomers lost all the wisdoms of their parents and grandparents and so if you have baked beans now they are worth more than they were when you bought it compared to dollar fiat exchange rate. I am sure many retarded Russians did not understand or pay attention to why many of them should have bought what they needed a month ago. You never want to try and stock up on supplies when everyone else is in there with you clearing shelves and fighting over toilet paper. Instead, you empty your savings account close as right before the bank run as possible.

In survival, as in all things in life, timing is everything. Had you been there and not moved from your seat five minutes ago, you would've been taken out by that rocket along with your buddies. But you didn't, because you moved right before it. 'Nam vets talk about this and "Fate" a lot, but quite frankly fate is just another way of saying timing.

While everyone is focused on Ukraine, both DRPK and Iran started making some moves.
North Korea soon will be in a good position to strike the south. They already have the mobile ballistic missiles now which effectively means their nuclear arsenal could be constantly on the move and thus nearly impossible to counter.
While the war is unlikely i assume what's going to happen is that some sort of pro-north movement will appear in the South Korea.

Same with Iran-Iraq, however because Iran has no nuclear weapons and Israel has - well. This is a bit too complex to predict. Obviously the unified state of both countries will be a major power on the middle east and of course this is the ultimate goal of Iran. But of course this is a direct threat to Israel and they won't let it happen so easily.

China and Taiwan is not the only thing happening now thanks to Ukraine. Just saying.

Not sure whether i should post this here or in the today thread.

Just went to convenience store to buy some oden and noticed there's one last pack of kdv krokant left on the shelf. Here kdv krokant has become a symbol of pro-rus stance, while roshen (which the store doesn't sell) a symbol of pro-ukr. I was reminded of the japanese twitter trend to buy russian mre to supposedly starve russian troops. It's really weird that consoomerism of russian goods could be interpreted both as benefit and detriment to russia. And I doubt russophiles buying krokant is any support for putin given the news of sugar shortage.
I took it and told the clerk it's out of stock. He was surprised and said it was just replenished a few days ago.

They somehow believe russian mre on amazon were smuggled by russian officials. And to buy is to sow corruption in russia.

The war crime video might be fake as well. Especially suspicious how the shots fired on it come from a high angle yet don't show any sort of exit wound, hitting on the ground, clothes tearing, nothing. If you shoot someone with an assault rifle it's gonna go through. Especially a leg or a foot. Very well could be blanks.

Can you tell if the gun has or has not such a muzzle device from those pixels? And sure the blank fragments can be dangerous too but you can't even tell from the video if the gun is actually on target when firing. When it comes to fragments of blanks - which are also not visible on video - it has to be said that they are not generally visible at all. At least from my first hand experience. Maybe 5.45x39mm blanks are different in that aspect, can't say. Also if you're making propaganda you don't have to use conventional blanks or methods. I don't think that's too much of a conspiracy theory.

My understanding is that, tactically speaking, the North has been in a good position for decades to reduce Seoul to rubble with conventional artillery.

It doesn't get much more pro-North than the current South Korean government under Moon (May 2017 – May 2022), unless you mean something like 진보당 ("Progressive Party"?) or even Lee Seok-gi. We've seen Pyongyang shills appointed to the cabinet, a government trying to suppress everything the North might dislike (such as pro-human rights / anti-Pyongyang activism), and the Republic of Korea asking to be exempted from an international trade embargo not least designed to protect it from a rival government by whom it routinely receives threats of violent obliteration (and sometimes worse, see below).
>>70780
>North Korea won't strike anyone unless they are in really desperate position, because it will be suicide for them.
Was striking South Korea without being provoked suicidal when (disputedly) the North killed 49 people twelve years ago? Was it suicidal eight months later, when (undisputedly) the North killed civilians in South Korea? Was it suicidal when they shelled South Korea in August 2015? You might be right about even greater provocations, like shelling Seoul or invading the South again, but so far the post-Rhee South has yet to prove it won't let the North get away with everything (and even reward it in various ways such as Kaesong providing hard currency and hostages for his majesty in exchange for "Made in Korea" slave labour for the chaebeol). And if the South hardly reacts even when it's being attacked, you won't hold your breath to find out how it reacts to the North starving and working (also torturing) to death many of its own "unreliable" peons in concentration camps. We probably need some more appeas"engagement". It has been so very effective in bringing about change in North Korea.

In addition to this, she posted various maps showing possible partitions of Ukraine between Poland and Russia.
This is a person who hasn't set foot in Russia for decades now and yet still strongly tows the Kremlin line. Fascinating stuff.

To be honest Russian migrants on the west are a fairly weird and sad bunch. Most of them are unfortunately absolute failures and losers who migrated because they failed and were losers here.
The mindset is typically as follows:
>hurr russian government sucks
>the weather sucks
>everything sucks
>life is better on the west
Then they sell everything here, burn all the bridges, migrate west and ... realize that they still have to work shitty jobs to survive on the west and that virtually nothing changed for them cause they're useless white trash.
There are two ways migrants cope with it:

Option A)
They basically turn into vapid russophobes and start posting photos of prices in supermarkets, reciepts, asphalt roads, concrete roads, trash containers, cars, pavement, cut grass, houses, basically meaningless materialistic shit that normal people don't give a fuck about.
Option B)
Can be summed up as:
>"I fucking hate this place, i made the worst mistake in my life and i can't come back because i'm a poorfag and can't return cause i got nothing left in russia"
There is also option C)

That's why I said often, not typically. You can find painted devices mostly in media released by the state, e.g. from military exercises. The vast majority of soldiers of course use the easily distinguishable ones but in the context of a possibly fabricated event, you can hopefully understand that painting a muzzle device is in fact a possibility.
