    Also Macron giving like 40% of France’s Caesar’s is wild- talk about a fuck you to Putin. That’s an incredibly advanced artillery system

    Yes, and Ukraine seems to be using them very effectively so far. A great towed artillery unit like the m777 is great but is somewhat slower to move and therefore vulnerable. Self mobile units have their own pro/cons but seem very well suited for this war and cesar is about as good as it gets there.

    sidenote: has to be kind of weird for the french/us/uk etc... units who have them equipment taken to send to ukraine.

    I have not seen a list of specific models being sent but I would be surprised if the US sent any tanks. US for sure would not send Abrams.

    I'd even guess that these tanks are coming from countries other than the US and they are not the supplying nations top of the line models.

    Maybe the Army doesn't want the Marine Corps Abrams that were turned over to them. That would be at least 450. :angrycorn:

    we have old Abrams parked in the desert. The Russians aren't going to learn anything they don't already know about composites and targeting systems and whatnot if we fix up some old mothballed 1st iteration Abrams and send them to the Ukrainians.

    Apparently Russia is making about as much on oil exports to China/India as they were to Western nations before their invasion

    That sucks

    BRICS is about to show the world that they do not need the West and the West's sanctions are toothless.

    Worse, the West needs them.
    Imports from Russia are down. Imports from Russia (via India) are up massively.

    Almost 50% of the world pop. and 30% of the world's GDP, yeah, they don't really need the West for shit even if they only work amongst themselves, which they will not. Not with the potential inclusion of a couple more S. American countries.

    in a world with peak oil demand and no excess supply this was always going to happen - those sanctions were stupid. However other ones are working such as electronics, planes, coal, and automotive - give them time they are creating pain

    At the end of this thing, the Ukrainian soldiers that survive are all going to be billionaire mercs, having been trained on literally every single piece of military equipment of the last 30 years.

    He was a 7th round pick and is like the 10th best Russian goalie. Basically a nobody to NA hockey media, let alone regular media.
