Consequences of service

OCS classmate Tucker Smallwood: “This is a link to a short film, which addresses PTSD and veteran suicide.  Two concerns very dear to my heart. 
“The intent of this film (Proof of Concept) is to generate sufficient funding to produce a full length feature film.
“The treatment program described within it (ALL THE WAY HOME) I conceived in 2009.  I am still trying to generate a pilot that could encourage similar satellite efforts across America.”

Putin’s nukes

“And Old Joe tells us we have nothing to worry about; this tangled mess isn’t going to come to a nuclear war. He wouldn’t lie to us, would he?

“Well, actually, yes. That’s just about all he does. The record of Joe Biden’s lies goes all the way back to the Syracuse College of Law’s Dec. 1, 1965 faculty report about then-law student Joe. The report stated that Biden “used five pages from a published law review article without quotation or attribution” and recommended that he fail a legal methods course because of his plagiarism. Biden staggered out of law school ranked 76th in a class of 85, but he later proceeded to lie about how well he had done…”

“Ukraine’s telecoms agency also announced that Russian TV channels had been hacked to broadcast Ukrainian songs, the Kyiv Independent reported on Saturday afternoon.”

That’s gotta sting.

Germany vs Russia

I do think it very unwise for Germany to be sending anti-aircraft missiles and anti-tank ones to Ukraine. I hope Slippery Joe is wiser. I mean once his pilots and tankers start dying in large number, how do think Putin will react? He’s gone this far, making widows in his own population, creating aggrieved mothers. He must be in it to win. Not to be humiliated.

UPDATE: And so we’re in it now that the prez is sending anti-air and anti-tank missiles to the Ukrainians. How long do you think Putin will allow foreign weapons to kill Russian soldiers without retaliation? Or at least takes out a Ukrainian city with a tactical nuke to show the world he means business.

Ukraine vs Russia

Putin may have bit off more than he can chew. Sort of like Afghanistan, which the Russians also lost, like we did. He’s divided his army into four wings, hundreds of miles apart, each with their own resupply problems. And the Ukrainians seem to be fighting back successfully, at least in the initial stages.

I don’t blame Slippery Joe one bit for this war. Putin certainly wanted it, as part of his bid to reconstitute the old Soviet Union. Now Big Joey will have to tread carefully to avoid Putin throwing a nuke or two our way. That could include stopping arms shipments to the Ukrainians. Probably should include it, just to be on the safe side.

I hope we don’t get involved directly. We can’t afford to be nuked. Nor to respond with nukes.

Big Joey’s War Machine

“The War Machine — you know, the War Machine that convinces Americans to spend trillions of dollars liberating foreign people when all we do is kill a bunch of them and then abandon the rest — that War Machine is furious Americans didn’t bite on this Ukraine narrative, furious that the ole gotta-liberate-the oppressed-peoples ploy flopped. You see, we’re just not buying their shit anymore, especially when the president of Ukraine is all: I don’t know what y’all are talking about. We’re fine.

UPDATE: Zelensky’s quote didn’t age well, obviously.

Who’s wagging whose dog?

“How much of Ukraine will the Western powers be willing to sever from that country, perhaps by plebiscite, over the heated objections of Ukraine’s government?

“Call me cynical, but I think we may soon know the answer to that question. Or possibly some seemingly unrelated concession to Putin is on the table. But I think the congruence of political interests among the relevant leaders is too strong for war to be the most likely option.”
