Conference of NonAlligned nations even though Cho En Lai of aligned China attended.
This is where we have a difference. Most sources cite our army strength as staff and 20k conscripts currently in training, then add 280k reserve.My hunch is that the million mobilized civilians will be given basic combat training and then placed in military jobs that best match their civilian skills. Every military has a huge administrative and logistical "tail" that is every bit as important to the fight as the guys "at the tip of the spear". Good move on the part of the Ukrainians.
Seen that this morning but didn't show on ADS-B Exchange military filter but did if you used the LADD filter. And I really didn't pay any attention to the information that was displayed about the plane. It was just another spook.
They're already here. And more just to the south of us in Venezuela and probably many other South and Central American countriesRussia has no way to get here. They don't have a large Navy like U.S. and they are losing planes left and right. The only thing they can do to the U.S. is nuke us or hack something. The chance of that happening increases by U.S. interfering.
I also think U.S. should completely stay out of this war, but they are not. I still think what I did originally , that those in control in the U.S. want to have a war with Russia. They are continuously poking the bear, and trying to weaken the Russian army as much as possible before the "official" war with Russia starts. Just a matter of time. Most wars take many years. They are not over in a few months.
Here is my thought on what would happen if US stayed out of it completely, Russia would win a little faster and get the areas of Ukraine they want, or all of it. That's it. No loss to the U.S. or the rest of Europe.
Many of us can decide for ourselves the difference between what is right and what is wrong. Invading a Sovereign Nation and indiscriminately murdering it's civilian population is wrong and does need defended against an aggressor who would have no problems doing the same thing to you and your family. Also, if we can help defeat Russia in Eastern Europe, then they will not be a threat later down the road when the next conflict rolls up. You as well as many others here know I do not have any television and have not had any for 3 years now, so to blame my opinion on MSM and saying that I am as bad as a Karen is just Juvenile and untrue.It's amazing to me how fast the news media can get the U.S. population to accept the direction they want them to go.....
( which in this case would be accept that U.S. will defend Ukraine one way or another, because they are supposedly the "good guys" , even if it makes no logical sense for the U.S. to interfer)
This to me is just as bad as the "Karens" during the covid crap. I wished people and countries minded their own business. There would be so much less trouble in the world
Good and interesting information.View attachment 440197
Our favorite Uncle... Zhouenli....
He used food diplomacy a lot. Used to come to our embassy for lunch. Loved our food.
If China and America can still talk to each other, it's because of him.
A bit of trivia.... how did China and Pakistan become friends. We were always friends but how did the two new countries realize they had to stick together?
It was all thanks to America.
PIA (Pakistan International Airlines) was the very first airline to open up China to international travel. We had just got a new Boeing 707 and we proudly flew it to China on one of our first passenger flights to that country.
Boeing had installed spy sensors of some kind on that plane. And it took the Chinese like 2 minutes to catch them.
They took us aside and told us "we realize you have been tricked...."... And that was the start of a beautiful friendship.
Cold War shenanigans....

It means something to stand up for what is right against what is wrong.First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
Well, before that...At the US national level, Americans got "introduced" to Pakistan as the launching pad place where Kissinger started his historic opening up trip to China
Bangladesh wanted to be independent from the rest of Pakistan. It was a blessing in disguise.A few kept up with the East Pakistan / Bangladash conflict with India.
I’m not putting words in your mouth. I’m taking your simple little statements and expanding them to meet reality.No, you are putting words in my mouth so you can virtue signal to your buddies here. I care not what the Ukes do. Fight on, surrender, makes no difference to me either way. I am 5,000 miles away after all.
You guys are just pilling on because it makes you feel better about yourselves. All I did was try and answer a question about the possible outcomes of this war. I am not engaging with fantasies about Ukrainians marching to Moscow, because it is ridiculous.
