It's ridiculous, I'm so pissed those pilots are jeopardizing their comrades and NATO like that. For money and Chinese girls. Citizenships should be revoked, at the minimum.

The West helping fund, build and train the force we're going to have to fight someday, it's always nauseating to see.

The Biden admin. has the distinct advantage over the previous Trump admin. from not having to obligingly grease Trump's sticky palms and those of his totally corrupt circle of crooks over purchases the federal gov't makes in order to run the gov't.

Currently only available in Germany and France so if you can travel there (virtually)


In 2015, Mantas Kvedaravicius filmed life in Mariupol, the Ukrainian port city that was attacked with rockets by pro-Russian soldiers during a ceasefire. In 2022, shortly after the start of the Russian war of aggression on Ukraine, Mantas Kvedaravicius returns to Mariupol. There, in the centre of the war, he wanted to be with the people he had met and filmed in 2015. At the end of March, he is captured and killed by Russian forces in Mariupol. The filmed material can be saved, and Kvedaravicius' producers and collaborators have put all their energy into passing on his work, his vision and his films.
As a filmmaker, Lithuanian anthropologist Mantas Kvedaravicius (1976-2022), who holds a doctorate, wanted to distance himself as much as possible from the agitation of the media and politicians. With great power and sensitivity, "Mariupolis 2" depicts life in the midst of the bombardment, showing images that both show tragedy and convey hope.
In a shooting note, Mantas Kvedaravicius writes: "Do you know what is most extraordinary about Mariupol? None of the inhabitants feared death ... Death was already there and nobody wanted to die for nothing. People supported each other, even if they risked their lives."

And a third critical subsea cable cut - in multiple locations - in short order... all just happenstance of course, nothing to do with a certain petulant Fascist dictator based out of Moscow

This is an interesting system and there is no real reason you could not scale it up for larger weapons.

I think you'd need a recoilless (or near recoilless) modified weapon, I'd think the kick on a typical rifle would destabilize the drone badly. Unless you start getting larger 100kg+ drones that have mass and stability to handle it.
