Exposing Russia as a Military Fraud, Is China Next?

Ukraine has revealed the Russian military as a fraud. I believe the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army is a fraud too!

For a very short time following WWII, America basked unafraid in the satisfying sunlight of freedom and prosperity, fearful of no one until the Soviets detonated their first atomic bomb followed soon after that by a thermonuclear device, space achievements, and bluster. Since then, until today, Americans have languished under the cloak of fear of mutual self-destruction, and we have lived in fear of the Russians ever since. 

The idea of fear, when implanted in the mind of a group or a whole society, can become paralyzing and destructive if not provided for.

Ronald Reagan proved how economically weak the post-Afghanistan Soviet Union really was despite its braggadocio, flouting its military prowess, with its grand army, navy, and air forces capable of interfering in American activities around the world. It was a Cold War that lasted until 1991 when their house of cards came crashing down, and the Soviet Union ceased to be. The fear abated somewhat, but the Russians still had atomic bombs. Clues to their potential demise were evident to even the most casual observer if one looked and understood what they saw.

The first blow for the Soviets came when they were humiliatingly driven out of Afghanistan. Of course, we helped, but the massive material cost of lost equipment, lost personnel, and a questionable reputation for being badass’s, seriously depleted their future prospects. With the 1991 collapse, the Cold War supposedly ended, but it proved that if we didn’t fear them, we still respected them. The contagion of fear abated a bit.

Russia went through a period of internal adjustments and opened to Western tourism and commerce, considering new leaders we don’t recall anymore until Putin, a Soviet throwback, arrived. During what Putin might consider Russia’s Dark Ages, when Americans flocked there as tourists to see the Kremlin and other sites, Putin set about rebuilding Russia’s Army and Air Force, but especially the Navy focusing on submarines as it did in the Soviet days. Putin wanted a high seas surface fleet which has turned out to be of no particular significance, and an Air Force that was flying copies of newer allied nations’ stuff.

Old habits never change. Russia cooperated with us in joint space adventures and scientific applications of new inventive ways of killing one another. But Russia was also getting restless, its perceived enemies encroaching on its borders, and as old Russian fears about its neighbors rose again, they had to be addressed.

In 2014, Russia militarily invaded eastern Ukraine.

Thirty-one years after 1991, another real leader, a Ukrainian stand-up-comic turned President, showed the rest of the world how fragile the Russian military really was by thwarting Putin’s plans to reestablish the old Imperial Russia. It’s not to be!

If we had looked closely in those intervening years, we could have seen the clues of their demise. Many in my field (CE/CI) did, but the world had changed, and while geography hasn’t, the methods of getting from here to there with our weapons have pointedly changed the dynamics of fear.

Politicians facing the prospective loss of political control through fear-mongering of something ⏤ Russia then and China now ⏤ limited any real responses that could have achieved a safe world with Russia in it. 

Putin’s failed quick, sharp military thrust to capture Ukraine’s Capitol, Kyiv, an expected four-day operation, was denied at a terrible price, especially for civilians, but pointedly for Russia. They cannot afford to carry on with their campaign to subjugate Ukraine. The inept progress of the Russian army’s untrained conscripts, the sinking of Russian warships in their own Black Sea bathtub, their massive loss of military aircraft and elite Commando units, hundreds of junky tanks, and armored fighting machines can only foreshadow the end.

So today, Ukraine has revealed the Russian military as a fraud. In truth, Russia has been a military fraud for all these decades, and we should no longer be afraid. We must now turn our sole attention to the protection of Taiwan.

I believe the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army is a fraud too. We can help the Taiwanese prove it. We can’t be afraid of China. Then, we must clean out the nest of evil Marxists in our own government to bask in the sunshine of freedom once again.

Remember, freedom is the goal; the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!

Having served in one war, let’s not send our sons and grandsons to another.

The early phase of the war didn’t go well for Russia, serious, possibly massive casualties, extensive equipment losses, tanks, planes, helicopters, artillery, but Russia still has massive amounts of artillery and now is making small attacks rather than large ones, continuing to advance on a smaller scale but still advancing.
Russia is an authoritarian regime, turning tyranical, governed by oligarchs under Putin’s direct control.
Authoritarian regimes may not see casualties and equipment losses, even defeats on the battlefield, in the same way as people in Western Democracies see them.
In places such as Vietnam, there were extensive body counts, probably hundreds of thousands, if not millions of casualties, but that didn’t stop the N. Vietnamese, the Communists, from fighting. It was the Americans who finally decided enough and surrendered. The same in Afghanistan.
Just because Ukraine wins some battles, inflict enormous casualties, and even sinks a ship, there’s little likelihood the Russians will stop and with the fall of Mariupol with hundreds if not thousands of Ukrainian prisoners, the Russians will be energized and can be expected to make even greater efforts, or if they stop now and negotiate a settlement, Putin will have won, gaining territory and a land corridor to Crimea and incorporating the region into Russia, with the Donbass region having the greatest natural resources of oil, gas and coal in Ukraine and Putin will also gain important cropland, which will be even more important in a world short of food if not facing famine.
I can’t call the Russian Army a fraud. Foreign weapons such as Javelins and NLAW missiles enable Ukrainian small units to ambush Russian tanks and armored personnel carriers, however the war in the East of Ukraine is a more traditional conventional war with heavy artillery and tanks as well as Russian air support which will make it extremely costly for Ukraine to contain unless the are able to access advanced weapons, hundreds if not thousands of artillery pieces, more tanks, missiles, advanced anti-aircraft missiles and radar, and anti-ship missiles to break the Russian blockade of Ukrainian ports. The war is far from over, and Ukraine could still lose, depending on support from foreign countries, what happens with China and Taiwan, and what Putin is willing to do, because he can likely mobilize hundreds of thousands if not millions of more soldiers and continue the conventional war while threatening nuclear.

Huh?

another real leader, a Ukrainian stand-up-comic turned President

Ok, now I’m just laughing. I suggest getting caught up on the full history of the conflict. Also, see how many videos of Azov battalion members torturing Donbass residents you can watch before becoming physically ill.

Forty-seven Democrats and forty-nine Republicans are under observation.

Something more seems to be at play at the origin of our food supply. Currently, two of the most prominent investors in American farmland are China and Bill Gates. Government interference in how farmers are able to do their jobs is also causing issues. Throughout history, many mass famines and starvation of people have occurred because of government direction.

A Disturbing Symptom of Social Disintegration; Mass Murder Incidents are an Ominous Sign

The Social Justice approach to crime obviously contributes to the rising tide of violence. Although Leftists may consider the increasing crime rate a fair trade for the political capital they generate with their policies, what may be less obvious to many is that the degeneration of fundamental human morality poses an existential threat to the continuity of human society writ large…

Statesmanship is Overrated When You’re Fighting this Level of Corruption

Statesmanship is supposedly based on the once-long-standing rules of dignity, collegiality, and propriety, but the results are always the same. The Democrat’s rules of statesmanship are found in Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. The Left has been the only side fighting this war through the years. Republicans have been slammed to the mat so many times that they’ve gotten so used to it…

A Literary Thanksgiving of Gratitude: Twain, Rand, Cicero, Francovich, et al.

Ayn Rand’s take on this American holiday is truly insightful. Rand has the following to say about Thanksgiving Day: “The lavish meal is a symbol of the fact that abundant consumption is the reward of production.” Reflection about the many things that Americans should be grateful for is a healthy practice that breeds long-lasting goodwill while fending off…

Beyond Slogans – Keys to Winning in 2024

The Democrats are not going to change anything even though continued political relevance demands that they change basically everything to sound more like JFK than Karl Marx, but here is the thing ⏤ by and large the American people just don’t care about election fraud in 2020 (or 2022). Running on that may win the primary, but it will lose the general election…

Your Guide to the Coming Riots

Your Guide to the Coming Riots

One of America’s great pastimes is “the protest.” A constitutionally protected right, it has somehow gotten confused with its violent and illegal cousin, “the riot.” It seems that today’s mainstream media has a rather difficult time discerning between the two. With a building burning intensely behind him, a reporter described an actual riot as a “mostly peaceful protest.”

Joseph Stalin once said he didn’t care who voted or how, but who counted the ballots. Like Stalin, the Democrats discovered that the voters weren’t important; the ballots were. Control of the ballot process, whether ballot harvesting, absentee, or mail-in ballots, so long as they have the ballot counting devices, they can win most elections…

The Security and Exchange Commission has No Business Making Climate Change Policy

The SEC approvingly cites several reports and numerous comments by prominent ESG advocates.

For example: Favor climate risk assessments based on warm-biased models run with warm-biased emission scenarios. Societal factors such as increases in population and exposed wealth…

The Biden Family Crime Syndicate

The Biden Family Crime Syndicate

While it was successfully covered up by the Democrat Party allies in the media, who declared that the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop was the result of “Russian disinformation,” it’s since been determined that the laptop in question was and is legitimate. Was Barack Obama worried in 2019 that Biden’s criminal activities would come to light during a presidential campaign and could result in President Trump’s reelection, which is why he tried to subtly discourage Biden from running?
