>>469280>a NATO assault
With what? Several NATO members have actually disarmed some of their divisions and sent the weapons to Ukraine. Latvian sent their whole airforce, Denmark and Netherlands sent all their tanks, Denmark sent all of their Caesar SPGs. They've sent all but the bare minimum of ammo they need for defense (not offense). US can't help, they'd have a hard time moving anything across the Atlantic in case of a war with Russia, it'd be a shower of missiles and drones, American fighter pilots would be falling like flies and ships would be sinking all over the place.
NATO can't attack Russia right now, NATO knows it, Russia knows it, China knows it, hell everyone probably knows it except you. That's why they're throwing Ukrainian workers at Russians in hopes it reduces the Russian arsenal somewhat.
It is true Russia is using old equipment. But why wouldn't they? That stuff has been sitting in storage for decades, it was produced and kept in case of a NATO attack. It will only get older, now is a good opportunity to use it.
But rest assured, Russia has plenty of materiel. Unlike the Western militaries who changed their doctrine every decade, inventing a new wunderwaffe and then basing their whole strategy around it. Always someone coming up with brilliant new ideas and finally finding the right formula. Meanwhile Russians have focused on what they have focused since the 50s: brigade level artillery (meaning they have lots of shells and rockets), BTGs (meaning they have a lot of tanks), and manoeuvering (which means they have a lot of vehicles that can traverse all kinds of terrain with heavy loads).
And now we see the results of the different histories. The side supported by NATO doesn't have enough artillery ammo, artillery pieces, tanks or vehicles to fight a conventional war, meanwhile Russia has plenty of it. Ironically, all the fancy and super cool operator high-tech shit that Western militaries rely on they refuse to send to Ukraine. It's fucking tragic and also hilarious.
Still waiting on that ammo to run out… Hey, remember when in the beginning of the war they said Russia, A.K.A. "Europe's gas station" was going to run out of fuel? Always a few months left, victory always just out of reach.
Now they're claiming they've destroyed more tanks than they claimed Russia originally had?https://minusrus.com/en
600.000 wounded out of the 180.000 + 300.000 Russian soldiers in Ukraine? Who the hell are they fighting over there?
The lies are so fucking transparent: ghost of Kiev, snake island, old man shooting down Su-25 with a shotgun, a goat killing 30 Russian soldiers, Russia running out of fuel, Russian soldiers stealing washing machines (this one was really weird), Russia running out of ammo, Russians bringing "mobile crematoria" for all the Ukrainians they were going to genocide (but then left bodies lying around for weeks while in Bucha)…
And you fucking redditoid NAFO libs believe EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. OF. THEM. Then when it turns out not to be true, you're all like "well it's good for morale". AAAAAAAAA I just wanna scream and punch every single one of you.
Not because I think you're retarded, because if I did, I wouldn't beat you up. You can't help being retarded. No, I wanna punch you because you disgusting liberal worms know EXACTLY what you're doing. You've thrown out truth, logic, reason, and knowledge, in favour of tribalism and cheering for your "team". Just like the Trump supporters you hate, you think you're nothing like them, but you're exactly like them.
Look in the mirror son, is that the kind of man you want to be? One who says one thing, but actually means another? One who tells you something, but then schemes behind your back? And for what? To "win"? What are you going to win? We all just lose.
Is your life so boring that the only entertainment you get, only joy you feel, is this para-social, de-humanised consumption of the war?
Have you considered that the feeling of "righteousness", that hate against Russians, is nothing more than your thought processes being influenced by the endorphins and dopamine released after you see number go up, or your colour getting bigger on the map?
Go play cookie clicker, and think about something mundane, I guarantee you you will feel strongly about that mundane thing. That mundane thing will suddenly be important.
We're not that hard to manipulate, and if you aren't trolling, I'm afraid you've been had. Turn off the PC, go outside, Ukraine is thousands of miles away, Russia is even farther away. Just go outside and breathe.
