Hi Sky,

I think this is more correct:  Most common stereotypes of some Americans:

I am some of those things, not nearly all.

How many fit you?

Jerry Baumchen

See the thing with stereotypes......

Quite a few fit me as well...Canadians and Americans aren't THAT far apart.

So I asked you this before and you couldn't answer.

You see a girl being bullied.  The bully is trying to take her clothes off and crazy glue her to the school door, because he thinks that would be funny.  You are bigger than the bully.

Do you tell her to let him do it?  Or do you stop the bully?

Why are you posting an article from March, when it's no longer remotely reflective of the events on the ground?

WHO IS THE MURDERER HERE? The BBC finds Ukrainian forces executing Russian prisoners in real time.  https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-63676446 End the war ... Seek PEACE!!!!

That's a freeze frame of the russian firing his weapon. His colleagues are on the ground, appearing to surrender, then the last russian comes out and opens fire.

Yes, they are all filmed dead afterwards, but pretending to surrender (perfidy) is a war crime.

 

Also, did you not read to the end of that BBC article? They also talk about a gruesome murder done by the Russian side.

 

You're regurgitating weeks old Kremlin lines, do your handlers have to use paper letters to send them to you to rehearse?

Latest estimates are about 500 of his countrymen are being killed or wounded every day. Supplies are so erratic that some resort to drinking water from puddles.Supply depots are now being kept as far from the front as Russia itself to avoid HIMARS attack. In the most active areas of fighting secondary lines of troops are maintained. To ensure troops from the first line fight and don't flee.Just like they used to do in WW ll.

Its either the party line or the Ukrainian front.

Hi Wendy,

Neville Chamberlain tried that; did not work so good.

Jerry Baumchen

Worked very well.  UK was in no way ready to confront Hitler in 1938.  RAF was still largely equipped with Gloster Gladiator biplanes due to years of neglect under Stanley Baldwin, while the Luftwaffe aready had Bf109s, He111s, etc. and experience in the Spanish Civil War.  WW2 would have been over in a month had UK gone to war in 1938.  

The extra year allowed a big build up in the RAF's inventory of front line fighter planes, and completion of the Chain Home radar system.  Even then the BoB was a close run thing.

Hi John,

Re:  WW2 would have been over in a month

IMO 'would haves' are pipe dreams.  It did not end 'in a month.'

I still say Neville Chamberlain tried that; did not work so good.

We will have to disagree.

I wish his efforts had succeeded.  Not much of a chance considering who he was dealing with.

Disagree all you want.  Britain was not in a position to fight a war in 1938 after years of neglect of its military.  The extra year brought completion of the radar chain, introduction of the Dowding system for directing the fighter defenses, and dozens of squadrons of Hurricanes and Spitfires.

They do have a nice collection of yachts. Surely Joe appreciates that! Some even have art collections with Faberge eggs.

Everyone knows a yacht has much more curb appeal than a plain black submarine.

Yeah, but if you don't pay your electric bills, the power gets shut off and the submarine reactors nearly have a meltdown (this really happened back in the 90s)

Nothing like nearly having a catastrophic nuclear accident to show the world how powerful the Russian Navy is.

A lesson not learned by some of our NATO partners, sadly.

Finnish PM Sanna Marin has said Europe is "not strong enough" to stand up to Russia's invasion of Ukraine on its own, and has had to rely on US support.

During a visit to Australia, the leader of the pending Nato member said Europe's defences must be strengthened.

"I must be brutally honest with you, Europe isn't strong enough right now," she said. "We would be in trouble without the United States."...She added that Europe must make sure it is "building those capabilities when it comes to European defence, European defence industry, and making sure that we could cope in different kinds of situations".

Well somebody agrees with you Joe.

And apparently not by Russia either.

Lame and you know it. Canada is first on the list of NATO partners who are happy to send their version of hopes and prayers when the shit hits the fan. Yes, Canada will buy some of our stocks and also put a few bucks into a reconstruction plan but Canada is always being dragged along. Canada needs to kick into gear big time and no more BS about the US and yada yada.

I'll get right on that Joe. I love the new B-21 you guys are buying at 750 million a copy. I hear some of your war monging generals want 100 of them. Maybe we can slash a little something out of our healthcare budget and chip in for some spare tires for one of them.
