Seem to recall Col McGregor talking about this months ago. Not the claim the Russians are not manufacturing. They have been manufacturing ammunition for years. 60,000 shells a day fired at Ukraine, manufacturing that output and much more, was not something that started a year ago.
McGregor’s contacts in NATO said the French only have days of ammunition.
The UK admitted a week or so back it doesn’t have more than a day’s worth.
20 years of fighting weak opponents and jihadi’s (their paymasters fund(ed)).
But what with the desired war with China, they may well have to start manufacturing more arms.
And the UK said this week they are exploring manufacturing arms in Ukraine.
That will be like a firework display once a Russian cruise missile hits the plant.
And where are the fighter jets and the pilots that need months if not years to learn how to fly them?
War is a racket.
Personally I think Bakhmut is going to fall to russia. I don’t think Ukraine will fold in half as a whole though. Russia is using Wagner prisoners as bullet sponges keeping Ukraine tied down in the battle while russia prepares for a wider offensive. I hope Ukraine is ready, they always do surprise me. Hope russia gets their shit pushed back to Mordor.
Bakhmut doesn’t have any strategic value. Ukraine did not deploy significant armored brigades to the region. The only thing they need to achieve in Bakhmut is to maximize Russian casualty for every inch of Russian advance. If you want to see where Ukraine absolutely is determined to defend and eventually launch a counter offensive, look at what’s going on in Vuhledar and Prechystivka.
“Aren’t there enough people in the world seeking revenge against the United States? They simply don’t have the weapons to do it. Why are we yet to supply weapons to them? Why didn’t some unknown person, totally unknown, blow up the lines of communication that are strategically important for the United States?”

I’m not sure if this guy knows this yet…but Saddam’s entire military was soviet weapons(desert storm) and he had the biggest tank military in the world. And also vietnams military was all soviet weapons. …so yeah russia has tried this before, payback is a bitch.
these russian propagandists are hilarious.
The Vietnamese Peoples’ Air Force—as it was officially called—sent pilots to the Soviet Union and China for training in MiG fighters but had no jet aircraft of its own until February 1964, when the Soviets donated 36 MiG-15s and -17s to the VPAF.
USA and allies still dragging on fighter jets, I say send the armada. Payback fuckers.
@cake so russia fought the USA until the last Vietnamese and they won.
Soviet fought Republic of China from 1945 to 1949 through Comintern local proxy. Formosa is all what is left! Taiwan ROC waited for 8 decades, it could take its revenge and finish the Northmen aggressors off in the Ukrainian quagmire. A once in a century opportunity! Why is Taipei not at the forefront in sending fighter jets, drones, long-range ballistic missiles?
Taiwan’s survival depends 100% on the U.S. military. So no, it could send more weapons to Ukraine. Poland and the Baltic States that share a common border with Russia have depleted their armories to support the Ukrainian war effort. No excuse. Same for Japan that still has its Northern core territories under Russian occupation. But lacks the will.
If you believed that was a proxy war, that would include Ukraine, as well as a load of other countries that were part of the Soviet Union.
Also, I did not know the USA were defending millions of ethnic Americans whose first language was English in South Vietnam. Many of which wanted South Vietnam to be a part of the USA.
The ROC illegally annexed Formosa before a treaty was even signed with Japan. Taiwan is never legally a part of the ROC, never mind the ROC government in exile. The sovereignty of Taiwan belongs to the Taiwanese people who are guaranteed self-determination by the UN charter.
Remember that Russia is completely fucked up. Please listen to the musician Timur Matsuraev, remembers that there was a was a war for Chechen independence from 1990s. Мы вернемся Грозный Тимур Муцураев - YouTube Chechnya, Grozny. 1990s…
you mean terrorizing the population with unmarked soldiers and killing all ukranian people in the area. moving in goat fuckers from the mountains to live there and then claiming it to be russian? that one?
