>>55920 (^: >>55911 That's a rather interesting point that's being made. I wonder if they'll actually go through with it without giving him a trial. There's actually this guy who formerly lived in New York Called Louis Rossman. He has a business where he repairs computers, laptops, and phones. During his time in New York he attempted to buy a place for his business. He had a device with him that allows him to easily measure the length and width of the room. Every single time he did this, the place turned out to be smaller than what was listed. This was quite harmful because many times, these places were asking for $10,000 a month for his business. Keep in mind, he has over 50 videos showing this off. >>55951 I'm definitely not an accelerationist in that kind of way but I think it would be rather interesting to actually see if they lock trump up. Would trump being locked up cause a civil war? Are the neocons worse than the democrats? >>55954 Heh.
>>55969 >I wonder if they'll actually go through with it without giving him a trial. If I'm reading the news correctly the judge already has. There's going to be a hearing for something unrelated but he's effectively ordered the judicial dissolution of Trump's assets. Trump will obviously appeal but it's a civil trial so things work a little differently. And yeah, Rossman came to mind when I saw the ruling. >Would trump being locked up cause a civil war? I don't think it would necessarily cause a civil war, but it would result in young men seeing the federal government as illegitimate. That's the kind of thing that takes several generations or genocide to mend. It doesn't guarantee a civil war, but it certainly fast tracks you towards one. >Are the neocons worse than the democrats? Four years ago I would have said something like "Democrats are racing off a cliff with the doors unlocked, and Neocons are driving towards the same cliff at the speed limit and with child safety locks turned on." These days I don't know. I think the Neocons are currently worse because they suffer from spoiled brat syndrome where they will inevitably try and tear the whole thing down because making sure nobody gets the proverbial pie because they took a fat shit in it is better in their mind than letting people who disagree with them get slices of it. Neocons worry me because they are actively fighting a civil war against the Freedom Faction and are tying up resources on their frivolous bullshit. The Democrats are genetic dead-ends who are losing the school choice battle while simultaneously sterilizing their young. Math dictates the future will be conservative in the next 10-30 years. So while they shriek increasingly loudly and beat their fists against the concrete pillars of society, they've destroyed their own tools necessary to destroy the pillars in the name of "progress" and their hands are bloody/broken from the chaos they have sown; they will slowly die off or go out in a blaze.

Yeah I kind of have the same feelings. I don't really fear the Democrats because they are so reality averse and incompetent because of that reason that they can't really succeed in taking over. Worst case scenario with them is that you have some degree of the French Revolution + Reign of Terror and then subsequent Thermidorian reaction that that brings the mess to an end. Neocons on the other hand are just competent enough to install hell on earth and make it work if they aren't countered. Else that or they destroy everything in revenge for not being allowed to get their way. I fear corrupted conservativism far more than loony leftism.

Kusarigama and Other Ninja Gear Strelok 11/14/2021 (Sun) 10:24:43 No.20438 [Reply] [Last]
The kusarigama confuses me. The design itself is perfectly reasonable: It's a flail with a short-range weapon attached for when you get a bit too intimate with your enemy. It leaves me wondering why European flails didn't have a spike on the handle just in case, but whatever. No, the confusing thing about the kusarigama is why a sickle of all things? Why not use a kunai, a hatchet or a pick instead? They are typically seen as ninja weapons and in that regard the obvious answer is to use the sickle as a grappling hook. However, a Japanese sickle would be an absolutely shit grappling hook because the shaft is longer than the blade is wide and that's the opposite of what you want. And even if you do manage to catch something, you're going to be putting half your bodyweight directly onto your carefully sharpened blade so now all you've got is a shitty warpick. A normal pick would make an excellent hook, with the downside of losing your throat-slitting capability. And as for skirting ATF-san? Do you really think your local glow-kokujin is going to believe you when you tell him that you thresh your grain with a meteor flail, and that you do it out in the rice paddy? It would be perfect if you could just stick the chain on with a bow shackle, but I don't know if the nips had anything quite that convenient back then.

I wonder about what makes the different shotel designs. Are they regional or do they represent different developments over time? I tend to think of the long thin types as the "real" shotel, but I'm not sure if that's accurate.

>>53347 >Nah, kids and adults alike will want nothing to do with it outside of government mandates or maybe the poorest of the poor. Foreign alternatives will be better/cheaper/sleeker because economies of scale, and inevitably "cooler". That doesn't matter if using these devices is mandatory during compulsory education, and then they get it for free*, and then they get to keep it, or they can give it back for recycling or reselling. With that many free* devices floating around, you'd inevitably have some hobbyists using them for various projects, and that could eventually lead to some cult following. *Free as in the taxpayers pay for it. >brain drain >lagging behind and playing catchup Neither of these is a problem if you set out realistic expectations and are honest about them. If people pay out of their pockets to learn the basics of anything related to this industry, then letting them go to learn even more is not a loss from a purely monetary perspective, and there is always a chance that one of them starts doing some industrial espionage out of pure patriotism. And the main goal of this whole program would be to make sure that the government doesn't have to rely on foreign tech companies to function, not developing bleeding edge experimental stuff in a l'art pour l'art fashion. Similarly, profitability is not the end goal, although selling stuff to niche markets could at least lessen the financial burden. On that note, other than education and military, I somehow completely forgot that the administration itself could use these computers. It's not like you need supercomputers to work with spreadsheets.

>>55992 > thought China (or it seems India) > Iran > Russia had a major deal recently to make a chunky straight railway going in that country order, Even if we disregard the geopolitics, such a railway would have to go through the Himalayas. An other route would be to go through the -stans, but then they'd have to play ball with all of them to make sure that the route works. Overall it is simpler to ship stuff between Iran and Shina through the sea, or send it through Russia. >I am now also realizing Russia's precarious position towards Azerbaturks despite being buddies with Armenia They can just ship stuff through the Caspian Sea. There is a break-of-gauge between Russia (including everything that was the Russian Empire) and Iran, so having to put everything on a boat first is not that great of a loss, because they'd have to put everything on different wagons anyway, and this way the boats can go through the Russian riverine routes, so that they can get quite close to their destination. Shina in theory is trying to build a route through the -stans as part of their belt and road program, but it doesn't seem to going anywhere anytime soon.

Modern warfare - drones & trenches Strelok 09/18/2023 (Mon) 12:14:47 No.55575 [Reply]
In Ukraine, due to drones being so cheap and plentiful, by now it is possible to observe the enemy movements relatively deep behind enemy lines 24/7, therefore any large concentration of force can be subjected to bombardment well before it is ready to attack. Therefore the only way to mount an assault is to send forward small units, and at that scale even a few conscripts with machine guns and anti-tank missiles inside some foxholes can put up an admirable defence. And even if the attack is successful, the small units simply do not have the supplies and manpower to attack the next enemy position, and it takes time for their replacements to catch up, therefore all momentum is immediately lost. The end result is that everyone is back in the trenches, just like in the western front more than a century ago. Is this really the state of warfare now, or is the situation in Ukraine is somehow exceptional, and we are unlikely to see it repeated elsewhere?

>>55848 I guess saying they were "very" effective was quite the stretch, but they are confirmed to be capable of shooting down drones and some loitering munitions. Ukraine is requesting more of them. Considering that these were originally made to detect and shoot big ass helicopters, these are pretty good results.
>>55775 >efficency Doesn't mean they wont try. My best guess is some sort of large caliber (120mm?) shoulder direct fire/at munution like the with extra rounds carried on the chasis.
Is it possible to CNT top armor a SPG to the point it can return fire after taking a direct hit from a 155mm shell? And on that note, wouldn't a hard-kill APS fug itself by intercepting a 155mm HE shell from the top due to the turret-mounted FC radar in current iterations?
>>55887 >Is it possible to CNT top armor a SPG to the point it can return fire after taking a direct hit from a 155mm shell? Yes >wouldn't a hard-kill APS fug itself by intercepting a 155mm HE shell from the top due to the turret-mounted FC radar in current iterations? Rheinmetall's APS has multiple radars spread around the vehicle that are protected from small arms fire and artillery shrapnel. It should be fine. It's the jewish Trophy that would knock itself out if it attempted to intercept an artillery shell.
>>55987 So a future where SPGs engage in downtrench counterbattery contests while AFC Fresh Fruits with laser APS LARP as Hans-Joachim Marseille in the skies above is indeed possible?

>>55616 >Actually, I think NATO is strongly opposed to the greater Turkey project All NATO (USA) is opposed to is a Greco-Turkish war. They couldn't give half a shit about Turkey's slow but sure path to becoming a regional superpower. Reminder that USA is doing absolutely everything in its power to sell F16Vs and F-35s to Turkey while at the same time denying Greece modern anti-ship and guided weapons because it would "destabilise the balance of power in the region".
Open file (97.01 KB 1094x786 wrong.jpg)
>>55774 I disagree. While it's obvious that NATO doesn't want to see the absolute clusterfuck of 2 member states at war with each other, Turkish expansion into the Mediterranean is not in any way comparable to Eurasian expansion from a US strategic point of view. I believe US/NATO willingness to screw Greece is a result of a general distrust of Greece due to a variety of factors such as perceived Eastern cultural sympathies, historical volatility (coups and such) and Greek overtures to China (involvement with the Belt & Road and even military ties and exercises). This along with the fact that NATO seems to consider Italy and Turkey more important regional airbases means that the US is quite willing to use Greek sovereignty as a bargaining chip to keep Turkey onboard for as long as possible. It's worth noting too that keeping Turkey occupied in the Mediterranean would be seen as favorable to eastern expansion anyway, especially given that such occupation would likely be extremely troublesome and costly. I maintain that a sort of union of the various Turkish states in Eurasia would be considered a strategic catastrophe, Whereas Turkey gaining the upper hand over Greece would be seen as inconvenient at worst, and possibly beneficial at best. One has to remember that the ultimate goal of US policy since 2008 (barring the monkey wrench in the plans that was the executive branch under Trump) has been balkanization of Russia, because this is perceived as the precondition of Anglo-American control of Eurasia. Almost everything the US/NATO complex does becomes absolutely predictable and coherent (still insane mind you, but internally consistent anyway) as soon as one reads zbigniew brzezinski.
