Meanwhile back at the latest “war to make the world safe for democracy”

Don’t seem to recall any Vogue cover shoots for Mrs. Trump. Plenty for the Mooch but for the super-model? Nyet. Now, as the “democracy” of the Ukes winds down, lots of time for Annie to shoot this “power couple.”  As for how Ukraine is doing? Well, it’s debatable. But more money and arms and Americans is Ukraine’s strategy for feathering the boltholes in the west. The Russians, of course, are just wandering around and are mistakenly advancing.

2022: Arestovich [adviser to the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine] “The Russians are advancing because they simply don’t know what to do.”

1945: The Russians are advancing into Berlin because they simply don’t know what to do.

Previously from Arestovich: War could be over by May, says Ukrainian presidential adviser | Reuters
Meanwhile, this guy is back:

To paraphrase Wretchard, “The terrible WTF?’s accumulate.”

    This “First Lady of the Ukraine”—or better, the “Last Lady of Ukraine”—is sitting in a very unladylike position that invites the Russians both to seize her and to seize Ukraine. Very classy. She and her husband are made for each other.

      Well, Annie Leibovitz is an aging lesbian who rode Susan Sontag into the grave so maybe there’s some projection there.

        I can hardly conjure up a more pitiful phrase than “aging lesbian”. Empty bed. Empty womb. Empty heart. Empty soul. Better the poor creature runs toward the Styx with the payment already in her mouth.

        The phrase “aging sodomite” has no traction simply because most males of that persuasion die off before they could be termed “aging”. Oh well. The wages of sin and all that.

    Kim looks rested and ready. Damn sharp flat top. Maybe he’s got new energy because he knows Trump will be POTUS soon.

    Olena Z. I thought her hubby was a gay coke fiend? Maybe I need to look at Vogue for the actual dope. She and he are so far to the right of anyone ever featured on Vogue it does make your mind itch, doesn’t it?

    I can’t speak to Berlin, 1945, but I did read a direct account of Russia’s taking of Vienna (the runner-up to Berlin). Tens of thousands – nay – hordes! of oriental Soviet soldiers, untrained and ill equipped, drunk as shit on vodka, burning barrels in the full-open at the very leading edge of the battle, massing like orcs and overwhelming the SS panzer and panzer grenadiers falling back through the city. It was a nightmarish scene from Hades itself, much less Dante. The author of the book (Other Men’s Graves), who was my exact counterpart as far as my job in the military (mech inf captain), pulls dead men over himself after swimming the Danube, which was on fire, and hides from the demonic cohort as it swallowed up the capitol city with pure, unalloyed MASS, and no artillery, tanks or rifles. No food, no command, no civilization. It was the absolute reincarnation of Genghis Kahn’s hordes, minus the elan. Satan, himself, took notice, and wrote notes.

    Our author was captured alive, and spent 10 years in a Siberian Gulag for the crime of not winning his war. Looks hard at you…

    Russia did not plan, nor kid-glove, the debacle it is now embroiled in. Ukraine-Russia makes Afghanistan and Vietnam look like Pee Wee Herman’s tickle fight Saturday night. It is hell on Earth and I think it’s important that we all assess this son of a bitch with a clear eye.

    At this late point in the Uke War, I doubt that a spill-over will take place. Russia hasn’t got the bullets, or the army, that it would take to enter Poland. What happens next is a post-Russian world, as far as influence goes. Putin has blown his wad.

      “Olena Z. I thought her hubby was a gay coke fiend?”

      “Ukraine’s First Lady tells Piers Morgan the invasion of her country has made her marriage to President Zelensky stronger and the couple are ‘now more interested in each other”

      Nothing like getting “more interested” in each other. Gay coke fiend and his attractive wife. I wonder if they were on Epstein’s list.

      I agree that Russia won’t enter Poland but not because it hasn’t got the bullets. It would overplay the hand. Just not part of the plan, or what survives of the initial plan in the current grinding plan. (That would be the initial plan that did not survive contact with the enemy along the road to Kyiv.) Maybe this will all be reversed when that fantastic million man army big pushback from the Ukes unfolds in the coming weeks. History shall tell.

      I have no knowledge of the actual capacity of Russia to manufacture munitions but probably more in terms of bullets, tanks, and shells than the current US capability (of which I have only the vaguest sense.) Hell, bullet makers in the US are just now catching up with domestic demand. And yes, I know all about the failures of Russian Armor but as was said (Napoleon?) quantity has a quality all its own. In the meantime, we are teaching the Russians a lot about our own weaponry that they did not know and I really don’t think (although I have absolutely no real idea about it) that we have seen even close to all of the Russian military force in the “SMO.”

      Don’t know about you but if I was risking going all out against NATO and the US I’d probably hold back some stuff and I don’t mean just nukes. Don’t really know anything at all only that it makes sense in terms of tactics. I just don’t think they are anywhere near all-in in terms of non-nuke weaponry and soldiers.

      The future? Two visions. Zelensky’s


      Poland and Hungry Roumania and Moldova and others come out fine in the deal and Zelensky still has a place for photo ops.

        I don’t disagree with the sentiment about holding back your best stuff. But things go awry and plans go out the window. In Vietnam we were sending a few advisors and some obsolete rifles. Next thing you know, B-52s–strategic assets–are being shot down over Hanoi.

  • Dirk July 28, 2022, 11:44 AM

    So pleased that Ukrainians have kicked the shit out of the Russians. I read that Kiev’s back to normal, shows, concerts, dinning out.

    It’s just a matter of time before Mr and Mrs will be tried and hung.

  • Callmelennie July 28, 2022, 12:09 PM

    The Russians advance because they dont know what they’re doing?

    I guess that means we knew what we were doing in Afghanistan when we spun our wheels for twenty years and then stomped on our dicks when we withdrew

    • ghostsniper July 28, 2022, 1:42 PM

      And “they” aren’t on your side.

      • Dirk July 28, 2022, 10:45 PM

        Yes sir, THEY are not!

    Time for the Joker Trump meme with a miss me yet caption!
    Two dollar gas and no recession, good times then the COV-LARP Fundamental Transformation for the sad trombone.
    Section F is why they threw everything but the JFK/MLK/RFK treatment at Trump.

    Thank you for linking the Russian Sins. Hard to type with the tears still in my eyes. Hope that list continues, as laughter really is the best the medicine 😀

    Еще раз спасибо

    Back in those crazy hazy days of 2020 a female acquaintance, who wasn’t exactly brilliant but could do a great job on your aching back, told me she heard that there were Klansmen in full robes setting fires in Minneapolis.

    My replay: “Have you seen pictures of the mobs? Every third person is holding a cell phone in the air. How exactly did the KKK avoid getting photographed?”

    • Dirk July 28, 2022, 10:47 PM

      Gordon, those dam klansman are tricky devils. Must be wearing the new improved stealth hoodies.
