    "Between 1918 and 1921, over a hundred thousand Jews were murdered in Ukraine by peasants, townsmen, and soldiers who blamed the Jews for the turmoil of the Russian Revolution. In hundreds of separate incidents, ordinary people robbed their Jewish neighbors with impunity, burned down their houses, ripped apart their Torah scrolls, sexually assaulted them, and killed them. Largely forgotten today, these pogromsethnic riotsdominated headlines and international affairs in their time. Aid workers warned that six million Jews were in danger of complete extermination. Twenty years later, these dire predictions would come true.

    Drawing upon long-neglected archival materials, including thousands of newly discovered witness testimonies, trial records, and official orders, acclaimed historian Jeffrey Veidlinger shows for the first time how this wave of genocidal violence created the conditions for the Holocaust".

    The other Historian https://foreignpolicy.com/2016/05/02...yr-viatrovych/.

    The Historian Whitewashing Ukraine's Past.

    Volodymyr Viatrovych is erasing the country's racist and bloody history stripping pogroms and ethnic cleansing from the official archives.

    There you have it, both sides of the History of Ukraine.

    In the meantime in Israel "This week, the veteran right-wing journalist Andrew Neil tweeted "Israel fails to stand up for Ukraine. Reluctant to impose sanctions Stayed silent after Russian airstrike near Babi Yar memorial, where German Nazis killed tens of thousands of Jews in WW2". https://inews.co.uk/opinion/israel-f...ot-be-ignored-.
    So their ancestors did some truly shitty things 100 years ago. Let me give you a hand here. It wasn't the first time. Bogdan Khmelnitsky and his hordes massacred Jews as far back as in 16th century.

    And Ukrainians did it again during the WW2.

    So your point being is what? That they deserve what's coming to them now, in 2022?

    What's your take on today's Germany?

    Back down from what, you ignoramus? Russia was so confident that Japanese "wouldn't dare" that Nicolas promised to pelt them with Russian hats. Not unlike the current tsar, he tried to raise Russian nationalism by taking on a supposedly weaker opponent. That arrogance eventually ended in a cellar of a private house in Siberia with him and all his family buchered by bolsheviks.

    A thought-experiment and challenge to those who keep trotting out the nukes issue.

    To begin with, I'm certainly not an expert on nuclear deterrence, but I have lived through the Cold War years, with fallout shelters, duck and cover drills, and all that.

    So feel free to correct me if I make any substantially incorrect statements, but it's my understanding that both the US and Russia have enough nuclear capability to obliterate the other. Sure, there might be survivors in remote areas or in hardened shelters, but (if either side desired it) they could destroy pretty much everything that made the other's society viable. I don't know if the terminology has changed, but I recall that being described as Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD).

    Also, as I understand it, a significant portion of each side's nuclear arsenal is either mobile (submarine, ship, aircraft) or housed in facilities that would be resistant to being taken out in a first strike. I'm sure there might be other retaliative capabilities, but those are all I need to make my point.

    And the point is simply this: Neither side can know with certainty that: a) The other side wouldn't respond; and, b) The other side couldn't respond. They might think the probability is low, or high, or something in between, but they can't know for sure.

    So let's assume there are people on both sides who are more hawkish than others. Let's say Russia has some hawks who might be willing to risk launching a first strike. Well, at the moment of launch, it becomes irrelevant how many hawks are on the US side because retaliation becomes a defensive imperative. In other words, the reasons for not launching a first-strike pretty much disappear when you're retaliating against an attacker. And, unless a Russian (or US) hawk can guarantee they can take out each and every nuclear-capable asset of the other, they've essentially condemned both sides to the same fate.

    Let's take it one step further. Assume there are some intelligent people in the chain of command on both sides. It's my argument that, for those people, an order to launch a first strike, when your own existence is not being threatened, is the same as an order to kill your own family, hometown, and society. Faced with such an order, why wouldn't the intelligent person refuse to comply? Even if threatened with death, they're dead either way. My personal response would be something like, "If you want to destroy humanity, and our country, I can't stop you. But I'm not going to be the one to do it!" and there's no incentive I can think of that would change that calculus. And this isn't something you can practice. Sure, you can have drills and readiness exercises, but nothing prepares people for the real thing as it's like putting a gun against your own head (and the head of your wife, kids, etc.) AND pulling the trigger when you really want to continue living.

    While there's no way to know for sure, there's a huge uncertainty when it comes to the human factor if a first-strike order was to be given. And it's that very uncertainty that is woven throughout the fabric of MAD.

    Ah, but what about tactical nukes? There's certainly an argument that can be made about differences there. But what if one tactical nuke is responded to with another, and then a tit-for-tat ensues that leads to escalation and back to the MAD scenario? Once again, uncertainty rears its ugly head.

    And isn't uncertainty therefore the fundamental problem that no amount of bravado and chest-thumping (or planning) can overcome? It doesn't matter how big or strong or loud (or clever) someone is, playing Russian Roulette with a gun that has all cylinders full will still have the predictable result. But wait, do we know for sure how many bullets are in the gun? Answer: No, we don't. And there's no way we can know with certainty. Are you still willing to pull that trigger?

    I'll close with that, and open the floor to debate. Although I'm sure there will be some who won't be interested in rational debate. But that's to be expected.

    Newsflash: US-led NATO is increasing its presence throughout Europe.

Let them wonder if it smells like victory.
    Shall we call you a WAAAH-mbulance?

    What's truly hilarious is that, no matter how much you post about your Russian propaganda wet-dreams, reality keeps marching merrily along, laughing at you and farting in your face as it passes you by.

    Russia is in a death-spiral

    Der Spiegel Editor Dirk Kurbjuweit published an article directly calling for Germany to have and use nuclear weapons. Kurbjuweit believes Germany was blameless in fomenting World War One and the Jews had it coming to them.

    The good news is that, when this round is over, Germany will cease to exist. The only consolation is that, if Latin America survives, those who bear ultimate responsibility, will be hunted down there as well. For me, on a personal level, it won't matter, as I and hundreds of millions of others will know what the Japanese felt like after the American terrorist attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. As long as America and its satraps come crushing down as well, it is all good.
    As long as they continue to follow LilliPutin's trajectory, that death-spiral will continue. Right now they're having to resort to the craziest schemes to try to find soldiers (raise age limits; conscript every male, fit or unfit, in the separatist areas, etc.). Putin can't order mobilization because it would be an admission of failure.

    And everyone is spitting in Little Vlad's eye! Kazakhstan, Lithuania, and now Germany! Not only does the "emperor" have no clothes, but now everyone can see what a small dick-army he has. ROTFLMAO!

    As for you, who cares? Certainly not anyone in this forum, except maybe for your schmegegge-twin. But, on second thought, (like you) he probably only cares about himself.

    P.S. Congratulations to Ukraine on achieving EU candidate status, defying expectations and against all odds!

    Do all your posts read like stream of consciousness, run-on sentences?

    As far as your "solider's" anecdotes are concerned. I applaud him for service and sacrifice but, with all due respect, this ain't WW-II.

    I was in Pecos, Texas in 2018. Oil was not even that much. It ranged from $40 to $60 a barrel then.
    Your personal anecdotes are even less relevant than those from the WW-II lecture you mentioned. And quoting an exchange between a reporter and a WH press operative, really? If you think that adds credibility to an argument, I've got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.

    Russia is getting economically stronger while the USA is getting weaker, and that is the point.
    That's your opinion, obviously, but how about some references to back it up? I've posted a SHIT-ton of articles citing how, while Russia can sell oil and gas, they CAN'T use that revenue to buy critical components needed for their war effort. Right now there are reports circulating that Russia is having to scavenge Sony PlayStations to find some of the microchips they need. Is that a sign of a war effort being supported by a robust economy? I think not.

    There is going to be fatigue, and Putin is counting on that
    Maybe yes, maybe no. You obviously think you can predict the future. I merely observe what's currently happening and try to extrapolate reasonable scenarios from there. As of right now, I don't see fatigue setting in. One prime example of support for Ukraine is today's historic granting of EU candidate status. That's something people would never have predicted even a few short weeks ago.

    So you may think I am talking politics but I am actually talking about the war.
    No, what you're actually talking about is your own individual opinion, which you're certainly entitled to. But you've produced no credible or persuasive evidence to advance your position. BTW, it's the exact same position that some others have expressed (albeit with more concise posts) but, unfortunately for you and the other naysayers, Ukraine continues to confound many so-called experts and exceed expectations.

The Germans were using horses, he said, "And we were eating bread made in the USA 2 days ago flown in by aircraft. ". Point is that money matters in war.

    The people who said the Russians not Americans defeated the Nazis have a point, but I had family who worked the railways in Iran during WW2, and the amount of munitions that were shipped into Russia was staggering. The Iranians never saw so much stuff in their entire lives. Many on that side of my family moved to the USA after seeing how prosperous the USA was. I know from them how brutal the Russians can be.
    This is an excellent post Elvis. I know you from the Seeking Arrangements forum here. Your posts there are very thoughtful and succinct. Don't take this wrong way, but even when I agree with much of what you say about hypocrisy in Western foreign policy I have a hard time following all of your points. So yeah, the West have been idiots dealing with Russia and still are to some extent.

    As far as your statement, "Point is that money matters in war. " This is very, very true. It's also important to note money isn't just represented by dollars, rubles and how much of a commodity like oil a country is pulling out of the ground. Money represents things like technology, industrial capacity, logistics and know-how. These all win wars.

    What the hell are you talking about? Have you ever wondered why no one responds to your posts? Plan A, go suck a Russian cock and passively accept the load. Plan be, learn to speak English rather than copy and paste. I hope I've been of help.
