what's a war board without a conflict?

Welcome to /k/. Strelok 09/07/2019 (Sat) 10:23:40 No.1 [Reply]
RULES work in progress, see meta thread >>10348 1. spamming will result in post deletion and a 4 hr ban >what is spamming Spamming is posting the same thing repeatedly in a thread that does not contribute to its discussion or topic. Purpose for doing so can vary, but the intent isn't relevant to the ban. 2. spoiler porn and gore 3. do not post personal, identifying information. if you are posting pictures of places you've been and shit you own, remove EXIF data, metadata, check for reflections, etc. better yet- don't post your own shit! 4. offtopic discussions should not be carried over between threads. if you find some riveting thing you'd love to talk about that isn't relevant to the board's topic, make a thread on a more specialized board and link it with a post. >what is offtopic? Offtopic means not directly or indirectly related to weaponry, outdoorsmanship, and general survivalism or the territories or circumstances they are employed in. >this is vague This is intentional. As long as someone can reasonably demonstrate how a topic is relevant to the board's topic, it should stay. 5. Name/avatar/tripfagging is gay and antithetical to imageboard use, do not do this. 6. follow global rules (>>>/meta/) 7. dont shill other websites outside of the webring (check out my D*scord!/69420chan/etc) 8. you are your own moderator. if someone disagrees with you or posts something you don't like, then just ignore them

Review of the last week >UK minister: "What stands in front of us, what could be weeks away, is the first peer-on-peer, industrialised, digitised, top-tier army against top-tier army war that’s been on this continent for generations.

>>21834 Considering that the US of the time was trying to play anti-communist world police, it's highly likely the US may have at least marginally tried intervening, but it's unlikely with the US already distracted as much as they were that they would have been able to actually open up another front and the most the anti-communists in the territory would get would be sporadic arms assistance and special operations actions. That's just me talking off the top of my head, though.
>>21806 They could also rile up the Oirish Community in the US by telling them stories about the Anglos introducing the draft only to use the poor boys of the Emerald Island as bullet-catchers. Imagine if they conducted such an effective propaganda campaign that there are constant protests in New York, calls to boycott any company that does business with the British Empire, and so on and on.

>Germany does not participate in the 1895 Triple intervention at all >Kraut-Nip relations remain stable, they order more warships from german shipyards to build up the IJN than they did historically, though their pre-Dreadnoughts are still built in British shipyards >France loans several cruisers flying Russian flags with French crews to the Russian second Pacific squadron during the Russo-Japanese war, Admiral Rozhestsvensky puts the fleet under quasi-French command by putting French "observers" next to his more troublesome officers for much of the voyage in order to more effectively beat some morale and talent into his men >the Dogger Bank incident never happens and the Russo-French fleet can properly dock and resupply+train at French ports, as such they sail into Tsushima strait in noticeably better condition than they did in OTL and defeat Togo's fleet, albeit not decisively >Japan still wins the Russo-Japanese war but the peace treaty is much less favorable to them leaving both sides displeased at the outcome >the great game doesn't end Would the Japanese grow paranoid and try to build up a large fleet of Battleships to deter European great powers from invasion at any cost through German shipyards because the British don't want the IJN to grow uncontrollably while the Krauts want just that as long as the Japanese leave their colonies and Chinese concessions alone or would the loss of IJN prestige lead to internal conflict with the IJA? Could a possibly opportunistic/paranoid Japan at the outbreak of WWI in combination with more overt Franco-Russian colonial ambitions and Wilhelminic dreadnought wankery convince the British to remain neutral so as to not risk a two-front naval war against regionally competitive opponents? How would german-built Kongou in TTL's Kancolle be like?

>>21895 >that nobody should wage war ever. And edgy Streloks are so used to creating fanfiction that they forget that the majority of wars involve maybe a few hundred dudes, none of this complete annihilation shit. >Balkans example Because every country on earth is a former Mongolian (later Turkish) vassal state made up of several ethnic minorities that never got along but were forced to work with each other for a few centuries to avoid genocide, right? >If a war broke out between these nations Then a war would break out between those nations and it would need to be judged based on their cultural values etc. IIRC I was reading articles just a few years ago about how the Balkan populations are the most at-peace with each other that they have been in centuries right now because the Internet lets them get their angst out and realize that everywhere is a shit hole. Consider that Pakistan and India were working together on a civilian level during this Chink Flu pandemic even though their governments claim they hate each other. Misery makes for interesting allies. All of that is to say, not every war is about genocide you dumb fuck.
>>21895 Don't get me wrong, in such situations war crimes make more sense but as you yourself pointed out not all wars are like that, not all wars require such levels of violence.

Group uniform, customs, and culture are all details that can be worked out latter, but actually getting a youth organization up and running cannot be delayed if that is your goal. Luckly there is a lot of material for this: As for books: >1967 edition of the Boy Scouts of America Handbook. It is one of the last Boy Scout Handbooks edited by Green Bar Bill Harcourt, and arguably one of the best.

>>21998 As >>22000 mentioned, Asians eat soups as meals. Additionally while those powders taste good, they are basically salt and flavoring with only a little nutrition. Also I don't think you could make it with beef. Carabeef perhaps, but that would taste slightly different.
Anyone paying attention to the trucker situation in Leafland? /animu/ has been discussing it (see their meta thread) but I don't feel like digging through several meta threads.

Breyer Is Retiring in June October(?) so they can throw a new commie SCOTUS judge in right before the midterms! https://archive.is/r4KL6 Let's see how fast Republicans cuck out and let some woke feminist nigger tranny onto the seat. More legal stacking to keep the status quo in power. The fact that he is planning to retire right before midterms is pretty disgusting since they are going to use any Republican refusal to appoint a nigger tranny who hates the constitution as ammo against them in a losing race. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqX8vm9uDEQ
One of these two judges will be your new SCOTUS justice. Ketanji Brown Jackson >51 >Former Breyer Supreme Court clerk who in June was confirmed to join the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit >On September 5, 2014, in Depomed v. Department of Health and Human Services, Jackson ruled that the Food and Drug Administration had violated the Administrative Procedure Act when it failed to grant pharmaceutical company Depomed market exclusivity for its orphan drug >On August 15, 2018, in AFGE, AFL-CIO v. Trump, Jackson invalidated provisions of three executive orders that would have limited the time federal employee labor union officials could spend with union members, the issues that unions could bargain over in negotiations, and the rights of disciplined workers to appeal disciplinary actions. >On November 23, 2018, Jackson held that 40 lawsuits stemming from the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which had been combined into a single multidistrict litigation, should be brought in Malaysia, not the United States. >On September 4, 2019, in Center for Biological Diversity v. McAleenan, Jackson held that Congress had stripped federal courts of jurisdiction to hear non-constitutional challenges to the U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security's decision to waive certain environmental requirements to facilitate construction of a border wall on the United States and Mexico border. >On September 29, 2019, Jackson issued a preliminary injunction in Make The Road New York v. McAleenan, blocking an agency rule that would have expanded "fast-track" deportations without immigration court hearings for undocumented immigrants. >On November 25, 2019, Jackson issued a ruling in Committee on the Judiciary of the U.S. House of Representatives v. McGahn in which the House Committee on the Judiciary sued Don McGahn, former White House Counsel for the Trump administration, to compel him to comply with the subpoena to appear at a hearing on its impeachment inquiry on issues of alleged obstruction of justice by the administration. McGahn declined to comply with the subpoena after U.S. President Donald Trump, relying on a legal theory of executive testimonial immunity, ordered McGahn not to testify. In a lengthy opinion, Jackson ruled in favor of the House Committee and held that senior-level presidential aides "who have been subpoenaed for testimony by an authorized committee of Congress must appear for testimony in response to that subpoena" even if the President orders them not to do so. Jackson rejected the administration's assertion of executive testimonial immunity by holding that "with respect to senior-level presidential aides, absolute immunity from compelled congressional process simply does not exist." Leondra Reid Kruger >45 >California Supreme Court Justice >On November 24, 2014, Governor Jerry Brown announced the appointment of Kruger to the California Supreme Court. Although she had no prior judicial experience before her appointment to the California Supreme Court, her selection was publicly praised by then-Attorney General Eric Holder, Obama's then-Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli Jr., Obama's former Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal, and former Solicitor General (under President George W. Bush) Paul Clement. >During her six years in the solicitor general’s office, Kruger argued 12 cases at the Supreme Court on behalf of the federal government. One of those cases was a high-profile dispute involving whether the “ministerial exception” to employment-discrimination laws – the idea that religious institutions normally have the sole right to determine who can act as their ministers – barred a lawsuit by a teacher and ordained minister who had been fired by the Lutheran school where she worked. Kruger argued that the teacher should be able to pursue her lawsuit against the school for alleged discrimination on the basis of disability. >Kruger’s nomination was not greeted with unbridled enthusiasm within California because Kruger was not a practicing lawyer in the state, was not a judge, and lacked trial experience. However, Kruger was rated “exceptionally well qualified” by the California state bar group responsible for evaluating judicial nominees, and in December 2014 she was confirmed by the Commission on Judicial Appointments, a three-member body that holds a hearing to consider and decide whether to confirm nominees to the state’s highest courts. The commission’s members included Kamala Harris, then the state’s attorney general and now the vice president of the United States. Kruger was sworn into office in January 2015, becoming only the second Black woman to serve on the California Supreme Court.

Now imagine if somebody made a few modern heavy cruisers, and used them to constantly shadow enemy warships during peacetime, all the while obeying all the traffic laws of the sea, so that they will get shelled with 8inch guns the moment they try something funny. Who knows, maybe you could even cockblock a carrier in a cost effective manner.
