You already know this, but Russian dictator Vladimir Putin has invaded Ukraine. Putin has launched missiles into Kyiv and sent attack helicopters and ground troops into the country. On top of that, Putin warned the western nations to not interfere, or there will be grave consequences.
Vladimir Putin has given a chilling warning to the West that an attempt to stop or interfere with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine would lead to “consequences never encountered in your history”.
What difference does that make? It’s not like the illegitimate president will stop him, nor will NATO.
The Russian president made an early morning address declaring that a special military operation would be launched in the east of Ukraine in separatist areas. But what immediately followed was a “wide-scale” assault on their Balkan neighbour with multiple missile attacks on the capital Kyiv as well as other cities across the country.
He said in the televised speech at 6am local time: “Whoever tries to hinder us, and even more so, to create threats to our country, to our people, should know that Russia’s response will be immediate. And it will lead you to such consequences that you have never encountered in your history.
F. Joe Biden will make a speech claiming he will apply sanctions on Russia, but that will be the end of it. It is funny, however, that he will not support the country which funneled millions of dollars to him and his drug addict son. Sorry Ukraine, you’re on your own.
P.S. – The Russians made a move on Snake Island in the Black Sea and demanded the thirteen soldiers there to surrender. The soldiers replied with, “Go f**k yourselves.” The Russians then bombarded the island, killing the Ukraine soldiers.
Not for nothing, but that’s badass.
Our good friend and ally Vladimir Putin has shipped Russian “peacekeepers” to Kazakhstan in order to help the Kazaks control their violent protests.
It has nothing to do with Putin’s plan to invade the former countries of the USSR.
Russia-led alliance troops arrived in Kazakhstan on Thursday after increasingly chaotic and violent protests rocked the nation for days and resulted in dozens of people killed and hundreds injured, according to authorities.
What could possibly go wrong?
The troops were deployed as part of a “peacekeeping” force from the Collective Security Treaty Organization, a Russia-led Eurasian military alliance akin to NATO. The CSTO, composed of Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, announced early Thursday that units had arrived and would be conducting operations “stabilizing” the country and protecting “important state and military facilities.”
Yeah, the stabilization will occur when Russian troops land in Kazakhstan… and never leave.
A female Afghan air force pilot who was reportedly stoned to death in Afghanistan is alive in well in the United States. Safia Ferozi escaped Afghanistan during the fall, and made her way to Qatar before settling in America.
An Afghan woman who was one of the few female pilots in her country’s air force quashed an online assertion that she had been stoned to death by the Taliban, saying she is alive and well on the West Coast.
Safia Ferozi spoke with Stars and Stripes by phone over the weekend about her evacuation from Afghanistan, her reaction to a viral photo purportedly showing her death and her hopes for remaking her life in the United States.
She flew out of Kabul on Aug. 15 with her husband, Jawad Najafi, and their 5-year-old daughter Nargis shortly after the capital fell to the Taliban. An American adviser had helped the family board a U.S. military transport plane to Qatar.
Give Ferozi a background check, then offer her a spot in the Air Force. If nothing else, you can be sure she doesn’t tolerate our American fully woke pilots.
President Biden* has decided to withhold $200 million worth of military equipment from Ukraine as Putin is threatening to “annex” portions of the country by force. What could possibly go wrong?
Democrat President Joe Biden is reportedly holding off on delivering military assistance to Ukraine as Russia prepares for what many experts believe is a likely invasion that could happen at any moment.
“The Biden administration prepared a $200 million package of additional military assistance for Ukraine in recent weeks but held off on delivering the aid despite appeals from Kyiv and some lawmakers,” NBC News reported. “The administration’s delay of the smaller shipment of weapons and military equipment was designed to give more time for diplomatic efforts to defuse tensions and to retain leverage in the case of a Russian attack on Ukraine.”
Remember, this is the same dullard whose drug addict son was receiving $80,000 a month from Ukraine’s Burisma Holdings. I guess once the money stopped coming to Hunter, the “president” decided to cut off funds to Ukraine.
A source claimed to the network that the administration was considering a larger package that would be approved “in the event of further incursion by Russia.” The package has been on Biden’s desk for roughly a month while Russia has amassed tens of thousands of troops near the Ukrainian border.
Russia is going to invade Ukraine, and it’ll likely happen before Christmas. The United States will do nothing, they you’ll see the dominoes fall. China will invade Taiwan, and every tin-pot dictator will think it’s okay to invade other countries, as well, because the illegitimate president will not interfere.
It has been eighty years since the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor; an incident which brought the United States into World War II. Americans rushed to recruitment offices in order to avenge the attack, while other hard-working citizens did their best to replenish the American naval fleet and raise money for the war effort.
Sailors, Marines, and Soldiers fought back with extraordinary courage, often at the sacrifice of their own lives. Those without weapons to fight took great risk to save wounded comrades and to save their ships. Pilots took off to engage Japanese aircraft despite the overwhelming odds. Countless acts of valor went unrecorded, as many witnesses died in the attack. Fifteen U.S. Navy personnel were awarded the Medal of Honor — ranging from seaman to rear admiral — for acts of courage above and beyond the call of duty, ten of them posthumously.
I’m a big fan of history, especially World War II, which is why I post about Pearl Harbor every year. There are very few Pearl veterans still with us, and I want to make sure others never forget them and their sacrifices.
A World War II bomb exploded near a Munich construction site yesterday, injuring four people. Seventy-six years later, the Allies are still sticking it to Hitler.
A World War II bomb exploded at a construction site next to a busy railway line in Munich on Wednesday, injuring four people, one of them seriously, German authorities said.
A column of smoke was seen rising from the site near the Donnersbergerbruecke station. The construction site for a new commuter train line is located on the approach to Munich’s central station, which is about a half-mile to the east.
Bavaria’s state interior minister, Joachim Herrmann, said the 550-pound bomb was found during drilling work. Unexploded bombs are still found frequently in Germany, even 76 years after the end of the war, and often during work on construction sites.
It’s a miracle a 550-pound bomb only injured four people; the incident could have been much worse.
It would not be a stretch to think the illegitimate president is one of the largest arms dealers on Earth. Thanks to his ridiculously criminal actions in Afghanistan, the Taliban will soon be in possession of enough U.S. weapons, vehicles, and intelligence to create a formidable army.
But hey, no more mean tweets!
The U.S. military is leaving behind 75,000 vehicles, 600,000 weapons and 208 airplanes/helicopters in Afghanistan as the Taliban takes control of the country, according to the watchdog group Open the Books.
“We’ve made the Taliban into a major U.S. arms dealer for the next decade,” said Adam Andrzejewski, CEO & founder of Open the Books. “They now control 75,000 military vehicles. This is about 50,000 tactical vehicles, 20,000 Humvees they control about 1,000 mine-resistant vehicles, and even about 150 armored personnel carriers.”
The worst part is the Taliban will sell many of these weapons and vehicles to other countries, who will use American technology to make their own weapons equal to or better than ours.
Andrzejewski said his organization “found a Federal Audit that detailed up to $200 million worth of drones that had disappeared,” adding that “we don’t know where 600,000 weapons are within the country.”
Two hundred million dollars worth of drones, gone. We laughed at Obama when he was droning American citizens overseas, but eventually our own drones may be wiping out American citizens on U.S. soil. Well, I guess the fact that Trump is out of office is certainly worth it.
The crew of a USAF Osprey became the Ugly Americans in England this week, as they landed at Addenbrooke’s helipad and, um, made an impression.
This is a video of a USAF Boeing/Bell CV-22B Osprey 10-0053 landing at Addenbrooke’s hospital helipad for a medical-transfer training operation and then on takeoff literally blowing up the helipad with its rotor wash.
I just wonder what would’ve happened if any of the rubber matting had actually gotten caught in the rotors. Is it like throwing string at a drone where it gets tangled up and basically brings the whole thing down? Are modern helicopters as easy to take down?
Honestly, you’d think the helipad would have been made with concrete instead of what appears to be Persian rugs.
You can see the video below the fold…

While undergoing sea exercises last week, the Royal Marines transferred one of their own to a warship… via jetpack. See how cool the Marines are now that Prince Harry is gone?
The Royal Marines recently ran an exercise testing the $440,000 Gravity Jet Suit to aid in boarding operations and it looks like something out of a James Bond movie. Obviously the future is going to be super annoying when every pizza delivery person is flying around in a jet pack, but for now this remains the coolest thing my 10-year-old self has ever seen. I mean, this and the old Playboy I found out in the woods that one time.
Personally, I think it would have been cooler if they launched him via catapult… like Angry Birds.
After sustaining a week’s worth of Hamas missiles, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made the decision to fight back. On Friday, Netanyahu sent ground troops into Gaza to wipe out the terrorists.
It’s refreshing to see a leader who doesn’t back down to thugs.
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) sent ground troops into Gaza early Friday morning local time, in an effort to uproot Palestinian terrorists who have fired nearly 2,000 rockets at Israeli civilians over the past several days.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted a video message, vowing to restore “quiet and security to the State of Israel.” He added: “The last word was not been said, and this operation will continue as long as necessary.” That may have been a warning to the international community, including the United Nations, not to intervene until Hamas had been defeated.
Explosions were seen over Gaza as Israel launched a massive wave of airstrikes against Hamas targets there.
Personally, I think they should wipe out everyone in the Gaza Strip, then retake it as their own. The “Palestinians” will never stop trying to kill Israelis, so Israel might as well get it over with and steamroll the entire region.
UPDATE: The Israelis are freakin’ awesome!
