Just need the right candidates - local and national. To remind, Ron DeSantis won Florida by NINETEEN percentage points against a very moderate Democrat. He even carried Miami Dade. Greg Abbot won the governorship of Texas by 11%.All the liberals from Kalifornia moving into TX, and all the liberals from the NE states moving into FL, I can see it happening.
Russia is a huge country and while their military is getting hit pretty hard from time to time they have the manpower and armament left over from the USSR to continue their little adventure in Ukraine for a long time unless there's some kind of political change in their country. They've had the time to prepare a defense in depth and without control of the air the Ukraine military or any other military in the world is going to struggle to defeat something like that.With all of the damage that Ukraine shows as happening to the Russian forces, I wonder why Russia can persist with such losses- but then I see what news the US public receives from MSM and conclude the Russians get pretty much the same approved versions.
With respect to news, it is almost as closed a society as North Korea.With all of the damage that Ukraine shows as happening to the Russian forces, I wonder why Russia can persist with such losses- but then I see what news the US public receives from MSM and conclude the Russians get pretty much the same approved versions.
One of the best comments posted on that, "Flex Tape"Two photos of the "damaged" Kilo class submarine struck in drydock have emerged from Crimea. This is a pretty good illustration of what is called non-repairable. Looks like it was hit with two Storm Shadow cruise missiles or one that traversed the length with an impressive exit wound.
Destroying this sub, the B-237 Rostov-on-Don, is a pretty big deal. It is a modern diesel electric drive boat that was commissioned in 2014. Among other ordinance, it is designed to launch land attack cruise missiles and has been used extensively in strikes against Ukraine.
The extensive damage to the two drydocks themselves will also provide an enormous maintenance headache for the Black Sea fleet.
Zeihan on the coming election. I do not agree with all of his assumptions and conclusions, but as always, there are nuggets of real wisdom. Some should take medication before watching.
