In under 7 months Russia's military has been proven to be a complete joke.

Has there ever been anything comparable in history, where a nominal superpower's military has, in under a year, been proven to be a complete and utter joke in a conventional war?

        Tbf, Stalin purposefully sabotaged the 1920 war because he didn't want Trotsky and Tukhachevsky to get a win and he was worried capturing Poland would drag in more European support against the USSR

          It is sometimes hard to discern Russian scheming from Russian idiocy. And I tend to subscribe to a different interpretation. I don't consider what Stalin was doing to be sabotage aimed at Soviet defeat. I think bolsheviks were so certain of victory, that they actually started competing over who gets a larger personal triumph. That's why Stalin was obsessed with capturing Lviv instead of going west to reinforce Tukhachevsky.

      There are 2 and only 2 reasons Russia managed to ever score victories in the period between 1800 and now:
      - Massive amount of disposable Russians to use for human wave attacks.
      - A population so submissive that it would never complain about being used as meat shields and zergs by dangerously low IQ military leaders.
      Despite the infinite amount of Russians they still managed to lose against small nations in the past, because Russians are just that retarded.

        idk about that, zhukov was pretty talented. Sure the russians had massive amounts of manpower to throw at anyone that's coming their way, but that doesn't mean they can't be strategically sound. The current war and the western perception of it is mired in russaboos insisting that they can do no wrong, and westerners making a point to be as vitriolic as possible because it's something to do. We won't have a clear picture of things until a solid decade later.

          If you think Zhukov was even remotely talented you are eating up the soviet propaganda image of him. He was at best competent, and that is being generous.

            Over the years, you will come to the harsh realization that, the men and equipment Russia sent to Ukraine is all they had. They tried to flatten the entire country, look at Mariupol.
            Hard as they tried, they couldn't. This is the best they ever had to offer, and it wasn't good enough.

            Remember how people postulated at the start of the war that Russia was trying to avoid civilian casualties by not flattening every city? Well, we now know that to not be the case since they've flattened a few they were able to get in range of, but they still believe Russia merely has to stop caring about civilian casualties and they'll magically start winning.

    "Has there ever been anything comparable in history, where a nominal superpower's military has, in under a year, been proven to be a complete and utter joke in a conventional war?"

    I believe so. I remember reading some absolutely bonkers stories about Chinese dynasty which got some ass-backwards crazy that the they lost to mongolian raiders. And I am not talking about even Genghis Khan here, but some random-ass no-name-recorded nomadic bandits in the desert.

    It was very similar situation than with Russia. Corruption was rampant in the court, the country was rotten to the core, emperor did not have ANY clue how to be a good ruler or have any connection to the lives of ordinary people (him being raised his all life in the palace). And of course the usual court officials being placed as regional governors based solely on how good terms they were with the emperor, and only saw the job as means to enrich themselves and their family.

    So over the years the military was totally negledged (to to point where soldiers had to grow their own food) and officers sold their weapons to make themselves rich etc etc.

    So when the mongols came, the on-paper-mighty Imperial army just evaporated and the mongols raped and looted the land as they pleased. What did the emperor do? came to conclusion that he needs more capapble officials. How you get more capapble officials? By demanding that they know poetry and other noble arts in the entrance exams. This did not have the results he intended.

    Unfortunently, I can't give you any specific dynasties, as I don't remember them. I think it was around the year 1000 or so. Could have been Northern Song (960–1127)?

    Chinese history has plenty of stories like these. Some absolute bum-fuck inbred idiot ruling a nation with no fucking clue what he's doing. But you get the idea. Total collapse of a military since the whole country is rotten to the core.

He or someone imitating him tried to reestablish his threads, but the board currently still is too fast paced for them to survive long, when they are nothing but weak bait and bland threads.
