so, US Navy just parked two landing ships right next to Kaliningrad

https://english.pravda.ru/news/world/153989-gunstron_kearsarge_poland/
So, burgers just sailed USS Kearsage (Wasp-class amphibious assault ship ) and USS USS Gunston Hall (dock landing ship) to Gdynia port in poland, basically a spitting distance from Kaliningrad Oblast.
Thats about two thousand marines with bunch of F-35s and AH-1Zs as air support.

                Ya know, instead of risking males only why doesn't Russia train female soldiers for the invasion of Ukraine? Men are clearly not volunteering in the numbers they want, so they supplement the numbers with women. The Soviet Union found soldiers can be trained and deployed in around 8 weeks in the 80s so it's not like they don't have the institutional memory and experience. They'll be more motivated too instead because they get to kill Slav men.

                I guess I was one of those useful idiots because while I never thought they were anywhere near a peer, I did think the whole "cheap but rugged" bullshit was legit and had a place in modern warfare. Also everything just seemed logical to me, the cold war was over and they were engaged with muslim extremists all over the world, just like we were. Unfortunately that all turned out to be propaganda and russia fucking loves muslims so much that they promote them not only fucking their women but also invading western Europe to establish the Soviet Caliphate of Russia. Needless to say my silly delusions are all shattered and I'll go to my grave hating russians and paying every tax dollar necessary for their destruction.

                I think the only part of that which is incorrect is the word "modern", and I think there are only about a half-dozen countries that could actual prosecute a "modern" war. It just happens that all of them are basically all-in for Ukraine at this point. The weapons they're going up against have literally evolved in an environment explicitly designed to make them better at killing Russians. Rats tend to get killed by rat traps too, even so they're a major force in the world.

People that openly fantasize about other people getting killed, and talk about saving the white race and teaming up against the muslim world aren't moderates.

                Newfag, PrepHole, despite the 4chan interlopers, has always been a very libertarian and liberal board, in the classical sense of liberal. Our most famous and accepted tripfags were a anime loving moron who I'm certain fucked his Galil at one point who went to defend Bundy, a cross dressing 2hu affecionado who had a hardon for 5.7, a rich white kid who loved the SCAR, a gunsmith who would'd do the dumbest shit and document it for us, and a quite likely glowmoron who either worked at a nuclear thinktank at the minimum or was doing even more fun stuff then that. Prior to the big influx of tourists with the 2016 election, this board was no more racist then any other, which meant that laughing at racist jokes and other form of edgy humor without any real malice behind it. The reason that PrepHole doesn't come across as a centrist and moderate is because you have the few loud retards screeching constantly, and the Democrats have made it an eternal mission to fuck over gun rights so saying anything nice about them is sure to catch the ire of people who think you have to like or dislike a party's entire platform to agree with them on a singular issue.

                [nospoileron/k/]I fucking miss the way the board used to when it was a bunch of broke college kids who liked anime and guns. The whole Mosin being a good rifle meme was because it was the only thing a whole lot of us could afford and afford to feed, a fucking SKS was gucci shit[/spoiler]

                I've been here since 2011, thats a retcon. It was more libertarianish in the really early days like all of PrepHole but there has always been an actual right wing edge to it. Those guys shot up a crowd in minnesota and the whole board loved it

                That was, what? 2019, long after the board had started to decline? It also was a pretty clear case of defending themselves from a mob, and they might have got off if they hadn't made a bunch of videos using a collection of edgy memes from here that they broke containment with.

                I'm pretty sure dudes who crashed the moron protest that ended up in attempted lynching and some shots fired in self defense against morons are most famous PrepHole tripfags.

                MicNig is still far more famous then them, and I'd argue that boof and Openheimer are as well even if they've fucked off for greener pastures.

They pretty clearly forgot that edgy racist memes aren't going to be so well received by the average moron on the street, much less ones hyped up on the koolaid at BLM march. However, they fucked around and found out.

                Yeah, that makes sense. At the end of the day most right wingers are right wing because they think gays, trannies, and other liberal stuff is weak and unmanly, not because of any conviction.

                It's not about what China or Russia or any authoritarian state actually is. Those places can be whatever you think they are.
                That's why to the right, Russia is a traditionalist bulwark against degenerate behavior and to the left, it's a pro-gay, anti-imperialist utopia. Both groups are imagining Russia as being the opposite of the US, and because they hate the present day America that must make Russia the good side.

                Russia largely kept it's head down and made overtures towards working with the West in the post 9-11 world. The globalization of the internet also means that a whole lot of people have friends who're from different countries, Russia included, and while Russian leadership is all corrupt bastards, people are largely people all over the globe. The US and Russia did have some similar goals in the Middle East, particularly wanting to see ISIS defeated, and there was certainly a chance for cooperation and mutual understanding before Putin chimped out in 2014 and made it clear that giving the Russians an inch would lead nowhere good. I don't hate Russians, but I do hate Russia and if the Russians are willing to wear the chains of slavery and apathy around their neck instead of revolting, I'm not going to be heartbroken about them suffering even if I'd prefer they didn't.

      You are an idiot. If Russia had a small sphere of influence in the Baltic states (Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia) and Ukraine, Europe would still be receiving gas and the world would be a much more peaceful place. Russia is deadly serious about not letting Ukraine become a hub for the US military. Several armies have marched right up through Ukraine and inflicted devastating losses on the Russians. China is also deadly serious about Taiwan not becoming a US military hub either.

          Doesn't matter what lies you yellow monkeys tell about your 'reasonable sphere of influence' (deliberately impoverished slaves). They hate you and want nothing to do with you. And you simply can't stop us taking them under our vastly more prosperous protective wing. You tried in Urkaine and what did it get you? A failing war and a pariah status. Finland and Sweden balkanized against you. Your only "friends" left are the literal scum of the human race. Inbred shrieking ragheads, cannibals from Africa's dark heart, famine-wasted Korean pygmies, street-shitting cow worshipers, and worst of all, the Chinese.

          Good fences make good neighbors. Major powers will jockey the states between each other for influence. We just destroyed US-Russia and EU-Russia relations for decades (at minimum) over a fucking crooked shitbag country that neither the EU or USA had any tangible stake in. Not big trading partners, no military bases, no key commercial enterprises, no energy, NOTHING! Ukraine has and always was an afterthought. It's a fucking disaster and you're too stupid to realize it. You will repeat the same retarded mistake when China chokes out Taiwan because they are also deadly serious about not seeing the place become another US vassal state to project military power from. Only this time we will all get to marvel at how good the USS Ronald Reagan is as an artificial reef for fish.

        Doesn't matter what lies you yellow monkeys tell about your 'reasonable sphere of influence' (deliberately impoverished slaves). They hate you and want nothing to do with you. And you simply can't stop us taking them under our vastly more prosperous protective wing. You tried in Urkaine and what did it get you? A failing war and a pariah status. Finland and Sweden balkanized against you. Your only "friends" left are the literal scum of the human race. Inbred shrieking ragheads, cannibals from Africa's dark heart, famine-wasted Korean pygmies, street-shitting cow worshipers, and worst of all, the Chinese.

                this might be true for wagies but for manufacturing there's a bit more education in the people there.
                Even Vocational people are going to by educated in the WHY of what they're doing, it's way too easy to fuck things up not only from the QC standpoint but from a safety and a "What the fuck have you done you've just broken a workstation worth a few-hundred thousand dollars" standpoint.

                It is dumb to say "no one knows how to do things the old way or even why they do things" on the level of a fucking boomer working as a mechanic in a shit tier cannery (I know, I know one personally). Yes canneries and factories processing raw resources can hire retards to work on shit. Aircraft and Ship Manufacturers cannot. Incompetence in those places come as a result of higher ups pushing impossible deadlines and brow beating workers into hastened work and handwaved QC, and even then it's really difficult to pass off a non functional boat or plane, with most bullshit coming from failures of planning and design, again on the higher levels.

                Well when you work for the government, your money is basically guaranteed and there’s huge profit margins thanks to the generous taxpayer. Even jobs that go to complete shit and are way over estimated costs still make companies money hand over fist. The work gets done eventually, maybe not in a timely or efficient manner, often not even correctly but it gets done. Tools get better, workers get worse over time.

                Seems like the nukes are the biggest issue (aside from funding, but we know congress could find that if they wanted to), just don't work on the subs there. Make San Diego and Newport News the designated nuclear repair depots, and build the corvettes and LCSs (or whatever) in Ohio.
                I mean I don't have all the info that depnav has, but that seems almost trivial.

                Shipbuilding is insanely expensive but has a very low floor when it comes to labor skills. As such areas with cheap labor are highly competitive, and governments subsidize local efforts to maintain capability.

              If there WERE a rush to put out warships as fast as possible you can guarantee our supply chain isn’t going to be as strong as it currently is. We already have trouble sourcing microchips and bulk quantity of good steel as it is so if china decides to stop selling it to us we’re sort of fucked

        The hilarious thing is that to the US, the Bonhomme Richard isn't a carrier. It's a transport as far as the USN is concerned, but the Russians and Chinese think it's a fucking capital ship or something.

    This ship is so much more dangerous now that F35Bs are a thing. They were right.

      A nuke would sink anything and destroy everything. There's no point in discussing things through that paradigm because there's no win condition

    Witness a textbook geopolitical snookering in REAL TIME! What will Putin do? Presumably China moves on the Krygz/Tajik, and we get to see how chummy they really are with the Taliban. Presumably Turkey helps the Azies and George and Armenia suffer. Will the West play ball there? Will Israel manage to plunge Syria / Lebanon into total chaos? Will Pakistan look North or South? That leaves poor lil' Russia wondering if it gives up Vladi to focus on keeping Kaliningrad and some influence in newly formed North Sea shipping routes, or if it accepts Europe as lost and tries to quietly assume the role of Chinese Vassal State #2 and play for influence with DPRK and the Mongols...

    2,000 Marines with F-35s and Cobra support could literally take all of Donbas in a week.
