Yesterday we had the first full confirmation that the last and most serious Ukrainian brigade, meant for the big offensive, has finally been committed to battle. As you know, from the Pentagon leaks we’ve had the full ORBATS of the 9 brigades of the so-called 9th Corps. All but the 82nd had already been committed and most were decimated.
Hopefully, Russia kills them all, then flattens Kiev and takes out that little runt POS. Enough is enough.
It's ironic to see the Challenger 2s equipped with what were derided as "cope cages" when Russian tanks started sporting them at the beginning of the conflict. Of course our intrepid media are letting it pass without comment.
Ukrainian soldiers described as "bulk low-quality human material". It's not rude, its true and tragic.
Besides America's ego and stalling whilst planning Distraction Plan B, could there be another reason behind deliberately decimating Ukraine's population? Property? Anything else?
Are any of the biolab documents available? Translated?
The Challenger 2 with a pigeon house on it lol.
It seems that things are quickly going to approach a head. We will likely start seeing more signs of how it will all shake out pretty soon.
Of course the SMO Show will throw us a few more curveballs, but that is to be expected.
Beautiful flags! Echoes of history with another Battle of the Bulge. RFK Jr and Vivek are rising in the polls because they speak the truth about the warmongering neocons and Ukraine.

@simplicius76, why not break down your post into Military SitRep and Everything Else SitRep? That way, easier to keep one idea in mind, and comment section hopefully on topic (fueled for discussion).
Appreciate a link for that interesting poll data.
great run down, thanks!
ukraine offensive is beginning to look like the second day at gettysburg. played over 2 or 3 months
kiev (nafo!) does not have robert e lee, and their field commanders are less aggressive than longstreet.
russian federation has position, much more preparation (time) than meade who as an engineer 'selected' (kept the deployment he found) good, high defensive ground on cemetery ridge but russian federation has not lost control of sickles' corps who moved out of the designated defensive line.
like lee the kiev issue is logistics! 'combat set' nearing depletion!
2d day at gettysburg was a rough fight for the defenders of cemetery ridge, while an operational side show on culp's hill (meade defending there as well) overlooking the town was tense and should get more study!
the operational defense is useful when you wish to attrit the enemy!
lee used it at fredricksburg, and the battles in spring 1864 falling back to the investment of petersburg, va.
kiev has none of the opportunity to maneuver that lee had, and lost to hard luck and strong defense.
"The 82nd Air Assault brigade is an elite force which was entrusted with the British Challenger 2 tanks, American Stryker AFVs, and even German Marder IFVs. In fact, they were even rounded out with the British M119 light howitzer which makes them the only brigade out of the entire offensive supergroup to be armed entirely with modern Western/NATO arms and not a single legacy Soviet system."
Day by day It's blaringly obvious that this is a war between Nato and Russia. The Empires puppets won't admit it, but we can be 100% sure that Moscow and Beijing see it that way.
Why Beijing? Because they know they will be next.
What a waste!
"Well, 8 'elite' brigades had their guts ripped out to absolutely no effect so surely a single, lonely 'elite' brigade will really make a difference and surely constitutes a 'big push.'" -Delusional NAFO people, probably.
20,000+ "elite" soldiers gained a few miles of territory and there are 50 left to go to reach their objective. Who thinks ~3,000 are going to get anywhere useful?
Emergency! Everybody to leave street!
Invaluable stuff Simplicius .The context , truth and integrity so desperately needed and elsewhere so sadly absent.
The devil's in the details (and headlines/ledes) isn't he?
"ALLOWING Ukraine to Cede Territory for NATO Membership"
Allowing, eh? Who would that be who's "ALLOWING" Ukraine's ostensible government to make decisions for itself?
"Open to Ukraine ceding territory for NATO membership"
Who's open to it? The way it's worded it certainly ISN'T Kiev.
I think we all know the answer to that and we have since this whole thing started.
There are no more reserves...God have mercy on them.
