You can accurately measure explosions by the blast effect through science & math. It's a given part of weapons design, construction, mining, demolitition, earthquake research etc. Halifax happened in a hilly harbour amplifying the blast effect. Transnistria dump- could/may- break the record, but my opinion is irrelevant. It is what it is. Khmelnitsky is one he🏒🏒uva big explosion💥 that MSM reports as 2 killed 12 dachas damaged, fire's out, no mention of radiation; big story line is it's home of Ukr eurovision entry. 🤕 I'm not joking.

There was no fertilizer at that site and you need to mix it with fuel and light it with ignition to make it blow up.

Not even close, Halifax explosion, 1917. Ammo ship collision. At least Kanada leads in something.

Beirut blast was absolutely a low yield tactical nuclear weapon. There wasn’t even any fertilizer there. That warehouse was full of dirt and rocks.

I can’t believe the Jews dropped a nuclear bomb on Beirut! But they’ve done it before. The Jews used the same weapon in Syria earlier and in the Lebanon War.

The US has also used tactical nukes in Iraq in 1991 and at Tora Bora. The Americans and the Jews* are the worst people on Earth.

*Jews means the Jews’ hate state called Israel. I could care less about Diaspora Jews, but those scum in Palestine are really something else!

There was DU at the site. There were not any nuclear. chemical, or biological weapons there.

The Russians need to make more explosions of this magnitude happen all over Ukraine, ASAP. As I’ve commented previously, they should’ve been doing this since last year, as soon as it became clear that no negotiated settlement would be possible. That should’ve been their signal to initiate total destruction and unconditional surrender.

WTF, man I appreciate your commentary a lot of the time, but it's the so-called West that pioneered the "shock and awe" carpet bombing of civilians and infrastructure that the Russians have been avoiding. Dresden. Hiroshima. Nagasaki. Laos. Seoul. Cambodia. But then I guess you might justify all that human hatred with your own hatred of commies? Just askin'. Do you think that the South American and Asian cultures of mixed martial arts would have ever embraced the brutality of how the USA has done it? Fedor was one of the most kind brutes and undefeated champions of MMA all - time.

Because Russian troops are being killed and wounded unnecessarily, due to them being forced to fight with one hand tied behind their backs. Also, the longer this drags out, the more time the Russians are giving NATO (aka, the US neocons) to come up with new plots and schemes, as well as devise weaponry that can counter the Russians’ superior missle systems, etc. It’s time for Russia to deliver the knockout punches.

I believe it's the exact opposite: the longer this lasts, the more time it gives "5 Eyes," NATO, US, and EU to devise new shenanigans and subterfuges, restock weapons and ammo, and come up with new weaponry to counter the Russian missile superiority. Also, the longer this lasts, the more Russian troops get killed and wounded unnecessarily.

I am with Ed. The long game works well for Russia.

A shorter and sharper conflict will lead to more Russian losses, not less.

Besides reducing Russian losses there are other good reasons to draw this out as long as possible.

Simplicious has shown in previous posts how Ukrainians are dug in like Alabama ticks. Big arrow offenses would get A LOT more Russians killed than pulling Ukrainians out from behind elementary school and hospitals launching "counter offensives" to please Western Masters. Russia is using Western impatience to their advantage. Time is on Russia's side on the battlefield, geostrategic, politically and economically. Use it IMO.

Only solid argument for rushing is civilians Ukraine is killing in it's terror gambits

Carpet bombing with heavy bombers and very large bunker-busting missiles works wonders at dislodging "Alabama ticks." So do thermobaric and incendiary bombs.

Time is not as much on Russia's side as you believe. The more time they give their Anglo-Zionist enemies, the more tricks they can pull - and WILL pull. This is taking way, way too long now.

The longer this lasts, the greater the chances for a financial crisis in the West, which would be followed by a political crisis. If the West has to cut its support for Ukraine due to political turmoil at home, Ukraine will fall within hours without Russia having to sacrifice its armed forces.

The real war is political and economic, not military. Excessive force will make it harder for the non-Western world to support Russia. As long as it is Nato that's escalating, Russia will win the political and economic war. Currently, only 15% of the world population support the economic war against Russia. That's the reason Russia can prevail.

Moreover, as others have pointed out, a big offensive will lead to more Russian deaths than the current slow grind.

I would not worry about the US catching up with Russian advanced missile systems any time soon. Analysts have been saying that the US is on average, around 25 years behind the times. And with all the stupidity in US weapons procurement these days I don't see the US narrowing this margin any time soon...

There is a lot of room between here and taking out London and New York. There have already been threats to take out satellites, and power plants, and life goes in in Kiev Odessa and LVIV. I think the entire economic system is vulnerable because all the money is on computers and networks. If we're spending billions transporting stuff to Ukraine, then every hotel in LVIV and Odessa is filled with contractors. But perhaps people will get impressed by big explosions including the thermobarics and multi-ton daisy cutters. I'm sure a few daggers could take down the remaining high-rise's in Bakmut. But there will be escalation and more people will die until funding to the Ukraine stops, just like in Vietnam.

Neocons are Trotskyists i.e. Mensheviks, the arch rivals and bitter enemies of the Bolsheviks. Trotsky only begrudgingly joined the Bolsheviks after they more or less won the revolutionary struggle, but he was never truly one of them. Trotsky would even try to destroy the Bolshevik government in 1935 with his formation of a 5th column that he hoped to use to coup Stalin. Thankfully, this plot failed, and the second Russian Civil War that would've destroyed the Soviet Union just in time for the Nazi invasion was avoided. Stalin exiled Trotsky from the USSR and he fled to Mexico, where his constant anti-Soviet and increasingly pro-Nazi and pro-Anglo-American Empire writings made him a problem, and so a Mexican Stalinist would do Trotsky in with an ice pick as deserved.

It's from Trotsky that the Neocon's ideas of global revolution and perpetual revolution originated. The Bolsheviks believed in "Socialism in One Country" which was an explicit rejection of Trotsky's adventurist plans to spread the revolution all over the world by force. As a matter of fact, the actual Bolsheviks such as Lenin and Stalin are the most similar to the MAGA movement in American politics, as the MAGA movement is only interested in American civilizational revival (i.e. Communism) within the context of America with no attention paid to the affairs of the rest of the world (America first). Basically, MAGA is in lockstep with the Bolsheviks on the national vs. international question, while the Neocons are in lockstep with the Mensheviks.

Expand full comment

ThermalVision... thank you for your explanation. Just a note about MAGA. There is a divide between the big US cities which are mostly run by liberal democrats and the rural communities, usually with people who like the freedom of living in the countryside with peace and fresh air. They are the Trump and undecided voters and are from every type of social strata, poor, rich, black, white, hispanic, etc.

A great deal of them still think that it matters to vote Republican or Democrat, however, they are waking up to the truth that the political system in the US is a unity party made to look like two parties. This unity system picks only the pre-approved and no other candidates are allowed. Trump is an outsider and so is another candidate, Robert F Kennedy Jr.. If these two get together for a series of debates on the new Twitter. this will be a huge blow lto the Deep State. No one will watch the Democrat and Republican fake debates show. Let us watch and see what happens. When MAGA says US first, they mean fix our country first before you go and bomb other peoples country.

Took me some time to figure out what arsehole you sucked these perverted lies from. Turned out to be lenin-stalin's one. While the actual facts tell the opposite, they are well-known, can be easily googled and checked, with a little effort of staying away from official bolshevist lies.

So, 1st of all, the idea of the World communist revolution was postulated by Engels, "It follows that if the workers in England or France now liberate themselves, this must set off revolution in all other countries – revolutions which, sooner or later, must accomplish the liberation of their respective working class."

https://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1847/11/prin-com.htm

2nd, one of the reasons why RSDLP divided into 2 fractions was lenin's idea, that the Party must consist of true revolutionaries, ready for whatever it takes: terror, killings etc. Mensheviks were much more subtle.

3rd. In 1918 lenin itself proclaimed that the World Communist revolution has started, created comintern, "the destiny of the world revolution is being decided here,. in Russia."

https://www.marxists.org/archive/lenin/works/1919/mar/06.htm

This idea was widely covered by soviet propaganda in 1920s

https://historyrussia.org/tsekh-istorikov/monographic/idei-mirovoj-revolyutsii-na-stranitsakh-sovetskikh-ezhenedelnikov-v-1920-e-gody.html

4th. Menshevic idea was indivisible Russia and gradual development, while lenin, being ultra anti-Russian, together with stalin, for example, created ukraine, giving it original Russian regions.

5th. After millions of deaths during the Civil War and obvious bolsheviks inability not only to install commie governments in other countries, but even to sustain economy in the USSR, the idea of the World revolution was delayed.

New Economic Policy was introduced, which was exactly Menshevik-Capitalist idea

"The New Economic Policy means substituting a tax for the requisitioning of food; it means reverting to capitalism to a considerable extent—to what extent we do not know."

https://www.marxists.org/archive/lenin/works/1921/oct/17.htm

6th. Driven by power-hunger, bolsheviks always lied about everything. Stole slogans of other political parties to attract population and never kept those promises. lenin proclaimed peasants the revolutionary class only to start war on them later, and even taking hostages and trying to use chlorine in Tambov riot.

later stalin, a true bolshevik, lied about his ex-comrades and ex-foes, all exterminated by him.

Later he tried to somehow revive the World Commie Revolution, but that's another story.

7th. Based on 5th and 6th, even though in 1924 stalin wrote, "the development and support of the revolution in other countries is an essential task of the victorious revolution. Therefore, the revolution which has been victorious in one country must regard itself not as a self-sufficient entity, but as an aid, as a means for hastening the victory of the proletariat in other countries."

https://www.marxists.org/reference/archive/stalin/works/1924/foundations-leninism/ch03.htm

in 1925 bolshevik Bukharin (later to perish in stalins' purges) proclaimed the idea of "Socialism in One Country"

So, the timeline and quotations of bolsheviks themselves, show them stealing Menshevik ideas, while lying about their opponents and their own politics.

Why you spread those lies is another question, as is Simple the Tinker liking those lies

TL;DR?

Expand full comment

Hold on their pardner...

Stalin may have promoted a one-nation Bolshevik Communist program but his actions didn't support that. He had no problem in the lead up to WWII in swallowing up around 7 nations including parts of Romania.

Stalin had every intention swallowing up the entirety of Western and Eastern Europe. See McMeekin's, "Stalin's War"; newly released research and a great read.

In the end, there is no difference between Trotskyism and Bolshevism as they are two sides of the same coin. Both of them simply want to destroy for the sake of destruction...

The US, Germany, Britain, and France all invaded Russia to stop the Bolsheviks after Red October. The "real revolutionaries" you speak of invited those countries into Russia, just as Russian and Ukrainian fascists do today, and the Bolsheviks pushed the imperialists out.

Inseparable traits of stalinist retards are: ignorance, lack of education and denial of facts

lenin and his henchmen were sent by Germany to make Russia quit the war. lenin, "During a reactionary war a revolutionary class cannot but desire the defeat of its government."

https://www.marxists.org/archive/lenin/works/1915/jul/26.htm

Like navalny today.

And bolsheviks did what Germans sent them to do. Russia was the country from the winning side that lost the war and it's own territories. Lost millions of people in the Civil war.

Ultra anti-Russian lenin (all his works showed that) even seceded Russian territories to ukraine and stalin proclaimed ukrainization there,

"We heard similar talk five years ago about the Ukraine, about the Ukrainian nation. And only recently it was said that the Ukrainian Republic and the Ukrainian nation were inventions of the Germans. It is obvious, however, that there is a Ukrainian nation, and it is the duty of the Communists to develop its culture. You cannot go against history. It is obvious that although Russian elements still predominate in the Ukrainian towns, in the course of time these towns will inevitably be Ukrainianised."

The Anglo oligarchs are using "salami tactics" increasing the level of their actions and attacks little by little, but fully participating in this war.

"The Anglo oligarchs that are behind this new war, will just use another new puppet: Poland..." You are right about Poland.

This is why I think Russia will go all the way up to the Polish Border and Oddessa. Ukraine will be no more and the Black Sea will become a Russian lake. Go back to the Heartland theory. Now what will or can NATO do about it? Nothing. When the Ukraine is over, Russia will ask the Poles if they wish to have NATO missiles on their side of the border and Russian Hyper Nukes on the other side of their border? That will be the question.

Washington, London, Rome. Evil will always find another home. As you say it has been going on for many centuries. Until the majority figure out what is actually happening, opt out of the illusion, then it will go on for a lot longer. Some say this process is currently being speeded up, hard to say?

I do appreciate Putin trying minimize losses and bleeding the Ukrs, but at some point there has to be a new offensive so that Elensky's Western backers finally get the point that they are losing.

Setbacks like this will continue and each time they do the Ukrs/NATO will feel emboldened

Also, someone needs to put a gag order on Prigozhin

Beating them so they know they're losing makes a desperate already weakened adversary liable to react & go nuclear. Death by a 1000 cuts, they don't even know they're dying, making themselves weaker internally as a group until they face reality, exit or cease to exist. They can only lie to themseves & bleed their own citizens for so long before the system collapses & the fight is at their own doorsteps...

It takes a special kind of Uber monster to use teratogenic weapons. The US, UK and Israel have and continue to use them. Of course the military industrial complexes in the western world are and will continue raking in the mega loot replacing the old junk they foisted on poor Ukrainian people. Sanctions on poor countries aren't much better, modern day seige warfare. Millions dying of disease and hunger. Remember Clinton's SS Madalyn Albright saying that the lives of 500,000 Iraqi children was worth it. What kind of monster's do that? There have been a lot of evil empires through history and I believe that it's arguable the US is the world's worst and that's a high bar indeed.

Wow, those are some big explosions!

Nice detective work! The missiles appear far to small to be s300/BUK but large enough to produce the damage those aircraft took.

Aim-120 from the NASAMs/SLAMRAAM with extended range seems very probable.

polish mig's fitted for amraam is a strong possibility, however i supplying latest longer range amraam is evidence usa is "all in". normally, the latest models are 'dumbed down'.

link 16 is likely in most sam systems operational control, but it is line of sight which suggests the ambush was supported by comms relays, and also longer range search and fix sensors. it is possible the enroute amraams had "fix" updates.

Yep, but there's a report that civilian eyewitnesses on the ground saw 6 missiles firing from the ground in north Chernigov. No 100% confirmation of that but that alone would preclude the Mig strike theory

could have been hidden inside a normal van or small truck like iran even makes. theres a few possibilities that go beyond a humvee driving about unnoticed with huge missiles sticking out.

Hola, saludos a todos, quisiera encontrar más información sobre la 72 brigada ya que es foco de varias controversias, incluyendo una discusión en foros militares de los que participó y no encuentro fuentes verificables de que dicha unidad existe.

Lo más cercano que encontré es un ORBAT de un foro ruso que la encuadra como parte del 3 cuerpo de ejército del distrito militar oeste, junto a la 6 división a principios de 2023.

A mí entender es una unidad de reciente formación que no debería estar lista para el combate.

Cualquier información adicional es bienvenida.

Saludos!

El 3.er cuerpo de ejército se formó hace relativamente poco tiempo en respuesta a la ofensiva ucraniana de Kharkov en 2022. El 3.er cuerpo de ejército estaba formado principalmente por voluntarios, aunque posiblemente también incluya combatientes movilizados ahora, pero no estoy seguro. Por eso es difícil saber si la 72 es una brigada movilizada o voluntaria. Wikipedia dice lo siguiente:

"Reclutamiento

Se cree que el 3er Cuerpo de Ejército está compuesto principalmente o en su totalidad por unidades voluntarias recién creadas a nivel regional, con varios sujetos federales de Rusia reclutando unidades individuales.[3][7]"

Este es un video de la contraofensiva de Kharkov el año pasado cuando el 3er cuerpo fue revuelto para ayudar a defender Kupyansk y la región de Kharkov.

También tengo esa información pero ese cuerpo no es de voluntarios? Tengo mucha confusión al respecto, el 3er cuerpo de voluntarios no es una unidad de 10mil voluntarios y militares retirados distinta del 3er cuerpo de ejército?

En russiandefence mencionan como parte del distrito militar oeste al 3er cuerpo y sus unidades serían la 6ta Div mecanizada y la 72 brigada.

Abundan también noticias sobre ayudas sociales de los distritos de Saratov Oremburgo y ulyanovsk para los movilizados destinados a la 72 brigada.

Y bueno, ni hablar de las noticias ucranianas que la dan por diezmada y reconstruida 3 veces desde agosto del 2022 hasta el día de hoy. Abajo subo algunas capturas de pantalla con los datos mencionados

I would like to think he's an idiot because what he says about the state of the Russian military machine and the russian political scene is pretty worrying.

But I can't just take your word for it.

I've got, for instance, Prigozhin backing him up. And I've got recent events in Bakhmut backing up Prigozhin.

Prighozin is maskirovka. Recent events in Artemovsk: the Ukes tried an offensive on an 80 km stretch of front, "broke through" a 5km stretch" right where Prighozin directed them to, into the waiting arms of Wagner.

Ukes took heavy, heavy losses. Silence from the msm.

What's this 'Strelkov' ? Pops up all the time. What's the significance?

Yes, I find it enlightening when someone points out that there are factions and disagreements and disparities and shortcomings and so on....

You don't?

I admire Russell Bentley for his sacrifice and bravery in the past. However he is a bar stool commentator with no input in to the Russian General Staff.

Living in Donbass and seeing his neighbours obliterated by missiles causes him emotional angst and this gets in the way of his critical thinking and he makes outlandish assertions. Don't mistake that for truth.

Yes that's what I was asking about since I didn't watch his whole interview as it's over an hour long so wasn't sure which part of it you're referring to. Well, DPR/LPR were officially publishing their casualty statistics and last I heard they were at 3-4k each, which was months ago so maybe they're now at 5-7k each which I suppose is a lot for armies which only have 15-20k total each or less, but they certainly aren't "all dead". However, it is true that many of their units are fairly depleted, exhausted etc. In particular the 'LPR 2nd Corps' army is often said to be very depleted by many doomer bloggers, but 1. it's grave exaggeration and a favorite false narrative of Strelkov's to state that LDPR are completely erased/dead and 2. much of the AFU is in far worse state/condition than LDPR as well, so it's all relative.

Expand full comment

Yep. Well that's all I suggested. That his statements be considered and that's what you're doing, considering them.

My interest is to try to know the precise truth, first.

My second interest is an emotional desire that these people be safe and be considered by the world at large.

It saddens me to think that after eight years of fighting they may be 'all dead', figuratively speaking.

They have reached that stage of depletion and yet to this day even the people who claim to 'support Russia' and be 'anti Kiev' etc. almost all almost entirely fail to mention them.

Everyone loves to see this conflict entirely in terms of Russia v Ukraine which is supposedly not what it is and not what Putin evidently wants it to be seen as.

But everyone persists.

You suppose 5 - 7 may be a lot for an army that may only be 15-20k. Well I would think so. That's potentially, on those rule of thumb numbers, damn near 50% loss. 7k from 15k.

In the trenches there should be at any one time only a percentage of the front line troops actually on the line. They have to be rotated back for rest and recuperation, refit and such don't they?

That's a fact regardless of the percentage of the whole that actually does front line duty.

So I well imagine that losses even at 30% would so severely reduce the available numbers in the trenches at any one time that a soldier may well report 'they're all gone, you only run across an odd one now..'

This is another instance where informative Telegram channels would be invaluable.

It's working fine. Looks good. I will settle down and give it a watch. Thanks for it.

And I will push the link around. I want people to know about this Ukraine v Ukraine thing because I think it is important. It stops the slow witted and 'don't-want-to-knows' believing it is a question of wicked big Russia attacking poor little Ukraine.

I know the DPR and LPR are part of Russia now. That doesn't change anything though, in principle, does it? We still have really part of the Ukrainian people shooting at another part.

Later: well I've seen it. A classic. A valuable thing. Thank you for that. It saddens me though. But thanks.

The depleted uranium fallout from the strike is really icing on the cake, and sweet irony with the winds pushing the cancer agents to the west and north. Couldn't happen to nicer people. Russia patiently waits and waits until these facilities are stocked full and then hits them good. Russia intercepted and struck further west this time because the targets were so rich. In this case, Russia caught Ukraine/NATO napping and spanked them very hard. These strikes will significantly hamper Ukraine supply chain logistics for the rest of the conflict. This strike also demonstrated that Russia can evade any ukraine AD when it wants to.

Have to come to the conclusion at this time that there will not be another Ukrainian offensive of any real size. Sure, they will attack here and there with some of their new toys, but it will be mostly terrorist type pinprick strikes. Ukraine supply chains have been severely degraded. A couple of more strikes like this past week and they will be put of out business for a long time. NATO can absolutely try to escalate further, but it will be their strategic demise.

This war is economic, political and military. Russia is effectively fighting 20-25 countries supplying Ukraine with military arms. And Russia is winning bigly, on its own, with just economic trade support from its partners. Stay calm and carry on. And keep a stiff upper lip. LOL.

As is more than obvious Ukraine has long lost any strategic capability. And let's be frank, they put up with a lot. Mainly due to the fortresses built by NATO engineers, where they spend most of their time, the billions in weapons dumped in Ukraine and the several generations of young people who have not managed to flee the country. Along with a very limited scope military operation from Russia. In a total war they didn't last 3 months! And a full-scale Spring counter-offensive has been pure fantasy since people started talking about it!

If not, let's look at Bakhmut, where even Prigozhin knew that as soon as the collapse was evident, Ukraine would do something?! And Prigozhin is not a magician but the ultimate troll! Definitely! Who realized a long time ago the pattern of the MO of the forces of Ukraine! Like me! Always PR to divert focus from Bakhmut's meltdown. Otherwise why didn't they prevent the taking of Bakhmut instead of these counterattacks on the flanks after losing the city? Where Russia is happy to retreat, if necessary, to better destroy men and equipment. In the north, it was an authentic suicide. And in the south, after losing hundreds of vehicles and men on the road of death, did they also remember to retake the hill? Please! All PR and propaganda! Just days ago Zelensky received the top executives from Balckrock and it must not have been to plan some military strategy but to sell what still hasn't been sold in Ukraine!

We should all stop thinking of modern wars as wars between nations. At least on the West side, where as Bernie Sanders liked to say during the election campaign, 3 Americans have more money than the entire lower class in the US. With more than 300 MM people! Bernie Sanders who knows as well as I do who the real US warlords are but also supports the war and Ukraine in the Senate. Remember the study by Credit Suisse - before it went bankrupt - with OXFAM, which said that 1% of the global population owned more wealth than the remaining 99%? And that the top 1% of the richest people held half of all the money in the world? It is the result of 30 years of neoliberalism! With some economic indicators in the world already in the 18th century, on the way to feudalism. Where the best job you could have was in the kitchen of some feudal lord to eat every day and live to be 30 years old. And it's not just about the distribution of wealth, where billionaires in the US pay less taxes than any merchant in Europe, but about the billions that every year withdraw from the real economy to tax havens!

What has always been at stake on the Russian border are two countries that are extremely rich in natural resources! It is estimated that Russia may have up to 2/3 of all the most valuable resources in the world! And the Arctic! Always the Arctic after the thaw! Which alone justifies all the wars in the world! And for Ukrainians like Zelensky a lot of money in their pockets. In Cyprus and in various tax havens. The big reason why Ukraine is still at war! And finally Borrell. An imbecile as corrupt as Ursula! So the EU legitimizes a coup d'état in Europe, where Olexandr Turtchynov emerged as the first Interim President, whom the European Parliament had already condemned for being openly neo-Nazi and now Borrell is concerned about freedom in Ukraine? Son of a bitch doesn't even deserve to live!

And now, finally, a question for the Thinker or anyone who wants to answer. Didn't Prigozhin insinuate today that it was the Russian AD that shot down the aircrafts? And it wasn't the first country to shoot down aircraft with friendly fire. Note that he mentions that they all fell within a diameter of 40 km, therefore within a radius of 20 km. And he says to search the net for the weapon...

P.S. I think the radiation levels at Khmelnitsky is a masterful Russian campaign. Ukraine will return the Challengers to the British. Which is a big problem for them because they don't have the money to keep them. They have to dismantle them for scrap like the Prince of Wales! 😂

While it's true two commanders are dead, they are both from the 4th brigade of the LPR, not 'Russia'. Yes, LPR is now officially part of Russia so it's a semantic issue to some extent, but with that said, they are still realistically two distinct fighting forces.
