    Yeah, the imagery of what the soldiers actually experienced in the winters of WWI is horrific. Bodies frozen into the ground run over with vehicles. Spending weeks in trenches with your dead buddies. No modern antibiotics. Just nightmarish stuff.
    There's a reason this country was so slow to get involved in WW2.

    • On the off chance that there is a narrow slice of people who are aviation buffs but nevertheless unaware, the B-21 rollout is happening this Friday. Live stream begins at 7:30 pm Eastern at B-21 Raider - Northrop Grumman (https://www.northropgrumman.com/what...r/b-21-raider/).

      100+ of those will be a huge shot in the arm for US power projection compared with the 20 B-2 "silver bullets" that we have today.
      If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

        Thanks for that. It’s not going to actually fly until next year right?

        • So, besides Putin's small dick has any other reasons for this war been documented at this point?

            That's what I have read in the media.

              No, that's pretty much it. A 70 year-old autocrat who thinks he's the second coming of Stalin or Peter the Great, shooting his shot at putting the empire of his child and early adulthood back together, figuring he'd start with the Baltic ports and the bread basket, and failing thanks to a series of incredible miscalculations for a guy who was previously thought of as an evil genius. Putin was duped into thinking The Bear wasn't corrupt as hell and made out of paper - he was wrong. He thought The Bear would be greeted as liberators in the eastern provinces - he was wrong. He thought he could get Ukraine to quickly capitulate with a campaign of "shock and awe" - he was wrong. Putin thought the West would have its hands full with fuel & food prices, Internet conspiracies that his regime fuels, nuke threats against NATO, and other distractions to prevent them (especially the US) from providing much assistance to Ukraine - he was wrong. He thought his buddy Xi and the CCP would back him up - he was wrong. He thought the Russian economy was self-sufficient enough to survive hardcore sanctions against its global partners - after keeping up a facade for most of the summer, it's quickly tanking now, so he's wrong again.

                  We go from 10 times the power projection of every other military in the world combined to 11 times?

                      We’re lucky if we can get half our planes in the sky at any one time.

                        It is literally impossible to have all planes in the sky at once. No modern military could do it. There are far too many logistical reasons to not do that very thing.

                          Exactly. Logistical, cost, and probably strategic.
