It would be different if we knew the billions were all actually making it to the war effort. Absolutely no accountability, and we know old Joe and company have a significant history with corruption in the Country.
I don’t want the Russians to win in Ukraine. I don’t want to get into WW3 over Ukraine either.
Unfortunately I think the Ukrainians are being used by the West to try to bleed Russia dry while keeping our hands as clean as possible. It is a dangerous game and the Ukrainians are paying in blood with very little chance of being able to outlast Russia regardless how many printed monopoly dollars we throw at the problem. The smart move would have been to negotiate right after the Russians were first repelled but the British and U.S. apparently didn’t like that idea. The Ukrainian position is likely to get weaker as time goes on. Their offensive got them nowhere at great cost of lives and equipment that may have been better used to hold the line.
Not to mention that a war with China over Taiwan would destroy our largest trading partners and manufacturers used by countless US firms. Looking “scared and weak” is nothing compared to the economic havoc a military intervention with China would produce.
We spent 20 years or so trying to defeat the Taliban in Afghanistan, and 2 weeks after we pulled out, government collapsed and the Taliban took over. The Taliban have no industrial capacity, no organized military (my impression is that it’s a warlord society), no tanks, no planes, largely illiterates who draw their world view from the 7th Century. Way different than fighting the Chinese army and trying to subdue and occupy a nation of more than 1 billion people.
Still need a bit more
I run a ³_⁹x 40 leatherwood on the .308 armalite. Would need allot more glass for that shot.
Thought 400 yard rested shot was good. Guess I’m under equipped.
Homeless folks in San Fran miraculously disappeared
David Copperfield must have been in town.
That, or the Clintons were invited.
we, as civilians in the US, have access to longer ranges than this is capable of too.
A looooong shot in my AO is considerably less than 1,000 yards, with the vast majofity under 600 yards. I’m happy with my Mossberg MVP LR in 5.56NATO with a 2.5-10× IR 30mm-tubed scope.
