    USA would sodomize Russia and it would work out perfectly as long as we didn’t try and rebuild their shit hole country.

    I thought I read from Rand or similar that Russia would just obliterate the NATO air assets pretty quickly with just sheer overwhelming SAMs. I guess the big problem here is the US is not in Europe anymore- it’s not 1988 anymore. We’ve retreated out- this is NATO vs Russia with US long distance support in theory. I feel like it would be 6 months until the USA could project real force in Europe.

    timo was in our group chat pumping Russian military propaganda telling us how scary their nuclear torpedos are, but after very little research it seems like that project is mostly propaganda.

    same with hypersonics- Russia is definitely working on these items. But they aren’t a thing right now

    I don't really see how this ends well for Ukraine if Russia decides to square up.

    I can't find it but there was a good thread on Twitter a day or three ago about there being a water scarcity issue in Crimea because Ukraine dammed up the main aquaduct and things are coming to a head now.

    Got it.




    Also if you aren't following this guy you are really missing out. Guy has great perspectives into global logistics, trade and geopolitics. I listened to him talk about the impacts of the Suez canal blockage for an hour the other day and it was riveting.

    I wasn't pumping Russian propaganda, just that they have some weapons systems that they are developing that are scary. Also, for as much as you seem to be dismissing them, they could kill every single American in 30 minutes if they wanted to also be turned into ashes.

    Also, even if this stays a regional war between Ukraine and Russia, given the last, idk, thousand years of human history, any war in Europe is bad (because there's always another war right after the last one)

    As the man said


    I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

    I mean, this is revisionist. You implied these systems are in use.

    And yes, a war in Europe is always bad, and I doubt once in motion that the Russian military stops with just Ukraine

    Pretty arrogant to name a war after yourself.
