  1. He's got a ton of stuff on Russian demographics, and they're ***** appalling. Russia has 144 million people, but only about 8 million of them are males aged 20-29. In comparison to say, the 1941 USSR, which had 180 million people, but 15 million active duty soldiers and reservists.
  2. Right, so back to the topic Peter Zeihan on why May, 2023 will give us a decent idea of who's going to win the war. Zeihan is an analyst of macroeconomics and demographics. He's currently giving talks at major economic forums, Ft. Bragg, Ft. Benning, the US Army War College and a bunch of other places. His big claim to fame is that he predicted the Russian invasion of Ukraine down to the year and month. To make a long story short. By May 2023, Ukraine will have had time to repair and refurbish the mountains of weapons it's captured from Russia. Russia will have had time to fortify its positions and flood Ukraine with poorly trained, badly lead, badly equipped cannon meat. So May is when we find out who wins, Ukrainian quality or Russian quantity.
  3. I really hope you're right. Otherwise we're going to see Hong Kong style crackdowns at best. Xinjiang or Tiananmen Square level brutality at worst.
  4. Belichick can't stop Josh Allen. Belichick's best hope for stopping Josh Allen is Josh Allen's own bum elbow. The real wildcard is losing Dabol, a guy that knew the Pat's schemes, concepts, culture and tendencies like the back of his hand.
  5. Hot take. This is all just 4D chess by McDermott to make the squad learn how to gut it out. Even when they ***** up, even when everyone is hurt. I hope.
  6. It does sound familiar, but I'm not quite ready to walk off a cliff yet...
  7. NATO said Poland was hit by a Ukrainian missile that malfunctioned. The real story took 18ish hours to figure out.
  8. I heard a story once about ancient China. Some sherriff out in the sticks had captured a bunch of criminals. He was waiting to turn them over to the emperor's officials. While he was waiting the prisoners escaped. The emperor's officials arrived and were not happy. So the sherriff asks the officials what the punishment for losing the criminals was. The officials said it was death. So he asked them what the punishment was for rebellion. They said it was death. So he started a rebellion.
  9. The D is missing half a dozen starters and forced two goal line stands. The D did enough to win.
  10. Well that's great. Josh went from throwing a red zone int every two years, to throwing 2 a game.
  11. What the hell is "recreational abortion"? I dont know anybody who goes to the doctor because they're bored.
  12. Agreed. There is no party of limited government. Just a party of big government, and a party that hopes I'm dumb enough to think small government and limited government are the same thing.
  13. Seems like the Russian withdrawal in Kherson is underway. Ukraine is snapping up a lot of territory very quickly, without much reported fighting. Edit: Now there's lots of chatter from sources on both sides that, somehow, Russian forces weren't ready to pull out. Russian troops are jamming up the crossing points along the Dnipro River and that panic is taking hold. Ukrainian forces are smashing crossing points with artillery, rockets and drones as they come into range to help things along. We'll know what's what in the next couple of days.
  14. The GOP has to keep ignoring Ron DeSantis because he's a threat to Trump. If they embrace him, Trump will go nuclear on the GOP. DeSantis' politics are the carefully polished, broadly palatable version of MAGA that the GOP needs to sweep national elections. But they don't dare use DeSantis because elevating him means DeSantis vs. Trump in a fight to the finish. Fox News looks like they're jumping hard on the DeSantis train following last night.
  15. They'd better be careful. Russia is fortifying the hell out of the right bank of the Dnipro River. Defense lines in triplicate if the open source guys are to be believed. You can bet they've got ever blade of grass zeroed, dialed in, bore-sighted, whatever that's within arty range of their defenses. That includes all of Kherson the city too. Ukraine is rightly being *very*cautious with their advance in Kherson. That and Russia has a ton of real-deal professional soldiers there from its paratrooper and Marine units. And unfortunately theyre fighting hard and well.
  16. Well, our aid to Ukraine has been incredibly effective in stopping Russian operations, blowing up Russian gear and killing Russian soldiers. In my book, this gives us leverage over Russia and Ukraine. Marjorie Taylor Greene wants us to give away leverage in this crisis for nothing. Zero concessions from anyone. Just stop it flat out. That incredibly stupid. Especially when we have leverage that we can use to work events to our advantage. Suppose you're MTG. Why not tell Russia we'll stop our aid to Ukraine when Russia pays for and completes the border wall. And a second wall right behind it. That's an easy win right?
  17. The Doom! posting is pretty wild today. You'd think we'd lost a Superbowl by 40 or something.
