That time again. 18-30yr olds get ready. Good luck non white Russians who live in and around Moscow and St. Petersburg.

Bring me more meat

"Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree setting out the routine spring conscription campaign, calling up 150,000 citizens for statutory military service, a document posted on the Kremlin's website showed on Sunday."

Have fun with those 2 weeks of training guys. On the bright side, I hear everyone gets a helmet these days. :smile: Good for you Yuri, good for you.

Information to what he said in the video are not that hard to find bud. It’s not some ‘conspiracy’. They’re not trying to hide it. Since you guys prefer news from the establishment propaganda like CNN and Yahoo instead of actual news, here are some links:



BTW, this business strategy of destroying a country then using tax money to ‘rebuild’ it is nothing new. We did it before in Iraq when Bush gave Cheneys buddies over at Halliburton multibillion dollar contracts for the reconstruction.

Here is another link on that:


But if you want to be a sheep and believe these wars are all about ‘freedom and democracy’ instead of what they actually are, which is money and power projection to keep our worthless dollar from collapsing, be my guess.

That money is a tiny fraction of a down payment on the reparations ruzzia will be forced to pay when they get tired of having their trash "army" embarrassed on a daily basis.

So good ol' Johnson has said he'd bring Ukraine aid up to a vote after this most recent recess.

Somehow I doubt it's going to be clear cut and straightforward since he mentioned 'innovation' when describing it.

Personally I wouldn't be irked if the bill that passed the Senate goes into action. Basically my home in WV will get upward of a billion dollar shot in the arm. We could use that there. One of the things we do is make aluminum plating and aluminum plating accessories (insert King of the Hill meme here.)

Somehow I imagine it's going to be months more out from ... sly sneaky shit.

I'm not sure; we shall see how it plays out. The thing is that if MG tries to kick him out as speaker; he will need dem support to stay; the dem might be willing to cut a deal with him if he doesnt' screw over ukraine. So MG might be the reason the ukraine aid passes ;)

Just some confirmation to those who aren't brain damaged shills promoting genocidal fascism; if you find yourself agreeing with RFK Jr, you're likely in need of mental health care.

This conspiracy obsessed twat thinks his anti vax posts getting taken down during America's worst modern pandemic is a worse threat to democracy than an insurrection and multiple fake elector plots.

You Can't Make This Up™

"I can make the argument that President Biden is the much worse threat to democracy, and the reason for that is President Biden is the first candidate in history – the first president in history that has used the federal agencies to censor political speech, so to censor his opponent,” he said."

That's not an argument, even SCOTUS thought so, and you weren't an opponent then, or now. Fuck off RFK Jr.

It is interesting that N. Korea is firing hypersonic missiles while America, with its very much bloated $1 trillion military budget, still does not have one. Where is all this American military money going? Building mansions and making politicians rich?!

Meanwhile, Ukraine is constantly lowering standards for its military recruitment - now it is trying to bring in very young men, very old men and apparently, not even fit men. But considering the shortage of qualified men in the country, this is not surprising. Maybe there are still plenty of fit Ukrainian men in Poland and Germany, as refugees? But they would have to be forcibly deported to Ukraine and I doubt Germany and maybe even Poland will do that.

Also, wealth of Russia's very rich men is rising. I know this is small compared to the Western billionaires, but for a country under very harsh sanctions, the Russian elites seem to be doing OK.

America and its media acted very suspicious after the Crocus City Hall attack. Without knowing or not telling how they know, the Americans said that Ukraine did not do it! What the hell? How did they know? Very weird for them to do this. Interesting that the apparent guys who did it were heading for the Ukraine border. But I am sure the American media will say Ukraine is innocent.

The thing here is that by immediately reacting and saying very much confidence that Ukraine did not do it, it makes America look very suspicious. This is why Maria Zakharova, Russia's foreign ministry spokeswoman and very smart and sharp lady, said that they have a hard time believing that the Islamic state did this. Keep in mind that Russia's government officials and diplomats are on a higher level than American officials. They are more informed and less ideologic, so it means they want proof rather than stupid statements that Ukraine did not do it.

Anyway, regards to ISIS and Russia -

Russia is the true combatant to ISIS since they helped their good ally, Syria, in defeating them. And sadly, America works with ISIS to overthrow Assad so I don't know. I don't know which side is right on this but we know US has plenty of connections to various terror groups, including ISIS. This is a side point but it needs to be said that Russia and Syria did go after ISIS because they and America were trying to overthrow Assad - this is because America loves regime changes and wants to regime change Assad.

I really suggest you stop drinking bleach.

First off, they warned Russia about this so it's no mystery that they would have a handle on who did it.

Secondly, you just fucking explained why ISIS-K would have a beef with Russia but then descend into complete stupidity about the USA having "plenty of connections" with ISIS. I guess you may have missed it, but the USA played a big part in turning ISIS from a embryonic state back into a fringe terrorist group.

The fucking Iranians told the Russians this was going to happen and the Kremlin simply did not pay attention. Either because they are incompetent or don't actually care if their civilians get slaughtered, quite possibly both.

The whole concept for Putin as a strongman that is irreplaceable because he is effective is hilarious. He has engaged in a disastrous war that they won't win, almost got couped by his chef, and let a bunch of half assed ISIS guys kill hundreds because their security services are too busy doing war crimes in Ukraine.

The fact is that America goes into countries to regime change them and this creates an environment for so-called terrorist groups to form. This has been shown many times before. That is why some believe that the USA is the leading country in creating chaos and turmoil in the world, mainly because of reckless regime change foreign policies. The Syrian government is thankful that the Russian forces came and protected them from American regime change operations, with help of ISIS groups and other radical Islamists that the US has connections to. To this day the US has forces illegally occupying Syrian land, stealing resources and creating chaos. That is what the US does - create chaos and regime change wars. This cannot be denied, even the dumbest American nationalists cannot deny this fact.

If the US had info on this attack, and they may have known because they talked about it, then why did they not give it to the Russians through diplomatic ways rather than using their spokespeople. The American government simply warned their own people to be careful in Russia a few weeks prior that is all. And now President Putin is very suspicious of US claims and I cannot fault him for this. There are other people besides the 4 guys they have captured, trying to escape into Ukraine for some reason. So when the American media says no connection to Ukraine, this can be refuted due to these guys trying to find passage to Ukraine. Was there somebody in Ukraine waiting for them?

The Russian government is going to look at this and I am sure the US is worried about it. It will continue the trend of making US look like aggressive regime change country that it is - always creating turmoil, etc.

Meanwhile, countries are gaining upper hand over US in technology and this will worry the US I am sure. The US spends $1 trillion or more on its military and yet has received very bad results from it. Losing war after war and it still does not have hypersonic missiles. Shameful. And now, North Korea is said to have successfully tested one! So this very bloated US military spending is going to buy mansions and luxury yachts for executives and US politicians?!

No wonder US politicians love war - they make too much money from it! But poor results for the military though - cannot find enough recruits, missing money, still no hypersonic missile, etc.

I'm glad to see some official recognition of China in the context of this war between Russia and Ukraine, finally. A bit late to the party. There's got to be some element of China in the background giving Russia a helping hand. I've been saying that for years in this very thread. Hard to believe this shit has persisted for so long.
