Roll for the results of the counter-offensive 0. Counter-offensive defeated, no gains for Ukraine 1. Counter-offensive defeated, Ukraine gains 2 to 5 villages they lost in 2023 2. Counter offensive manages to capture 1 or 2 small to middle cities in DNR, that they lost during 2022-2023 3. Counter offensive pushed the lines of control with Russia by several dozens kilometers in multiple regions, medium sized cities captured. 4. Counter offensive pushes the lines of control with Russia by significant margins, 1 or 2 big cities captured, that open up the possibility for further splintering up of Russian frontline, forcing Russia to retreat from wast territories 5. Counter offensive pushes the lines of control with Russia by significant margins, either reaching the border of Russia in DNR or LNR, or reaching the Black sea inside Kherson or Zaporozhie. Big cities captured. 6. Ukraine manages to severe the land bridge with Crimea by capturing Kherson region, or completelly captures one of the Eastern republics DNR or LNR. 7. Ukraine manages to capture 2 regions - DNR and LNR, or Kherson and Zaporozhie. Meaning enormous waves of refugees. 8. Ukraine manages to capture three regions of Russia in Ukraine, or significantly advances and captures the North of Crimea 9. Ukraine captures 4 regions of Russia in Ukraine, or captures Crimea completelly and whatever regions stand in the way.

My "russophobia" stems fully from my intimate acquaintance with Russian societal mores and political modus operandi, not any "Western propaganda", and it seems to me you are the one that has poor understanding of Russian realities, judging from your posts. Let me explain it very briefly: the Russian Federation in its current state is, effectively, a cartel. Russia is no Commie China. There is no coherent chain of command in the war effort, there is no clarity in the operation of its economics for anyone involved, from top to bottom. It's just a bunch of competing strongmen with a petty criminal turned billionaire at the shaky top. The very notion of the possibility for adequate coordinated reaction to anything is hilarious.

You are exact type of person who would believe the most wacky and bizarre fake news, just because it conforms to your hate-fueled expectations and makes you feel warm and cozy in your tummy if i was some weirdo who would hate Bulgarians and it was my core driver, then if someone would tell me that Bulgarian Kukeri piss and defecate in their costumes and groom children on every new year's eves, then fueled by my Bulgarian hatred, i would find it pleasurable to believe it

It seems they are more successful there. >they just bail, instead of trying to fix their vehicles under artillery fire Sounds like the smart thing to do.

Some dam got blown up and i don't understand why some Ukrainians are happy. They insist that their goal is to return their territories, so if they manage to return territories - they wouldn't have a dam. Building the dam is expensive and hard, you'd think they wanted to return not just land, but everything on it. But instead whats getting destroyed is (from their perspective) is Ukrainian infrastructure. They more or less imply that they don't have hopes of geting that territory back, and just going scorched earth on it.

Copypasting some context I think is important from **twitter**: (proofs attached and archived) >Very important on #Kakhovka. The chronology of the terrorist attack by Russian terrorists. Or how Russians screwed in their excuses. >At two o'clock in the morning, the Russians blow up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station, but they don't see how much. It's not very visible, but it can still hit. >1. The Russians still think that they have neatly blown up a small part of the HPP and are flooding our military on the islands. At 6:06 a.m., the head of Nova Kakhovka, Leontyev, said that the explosion of the GES was nonsense. Like, we don't know why the water rose there. Here is the link to Ria Novosti's http://archive.is/aTyK8 >2. Russian OSINT intelligence community Rybar picks up the thesis and says a small area was blown up at 6:51 a.m. Link http://archive.ph/flapa >3. At 6:51 in Nova Kakhovka, they see that the dam is a complete ass, and the mom's stratagems start to realize that they are in trouble. The mayor of Nova Kakhovka abruptly changes his rhetoric and says there was no explosion, it was a shelling by the Ukrainian army. Link http://archive.ph/LFFKF >4. But the propagandists, who do not know what the fuck has happened, continue to work according to the methodology and continue to throw into the information space that the dam was previously shelled, and then it got a little tired and broke a little. Here is a post by Podolyaki's propagandist http://archive.ph/DgQIV. And the propaganda channel War on Fakes http://archive.ph/GRN55 >5. Other telegram channels that cooperate with the military are happily hopping on one leg, cheering, because of the undermining of the Kakhovka dam, the positions of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the islands are flooded, the Ukrainian Armed Forces are trying to evacuate and escape, and then they publish joyful reports of how they are hitting the positions of our guys on the islands. 08:25 Link http://archive.ph/c0iHL >6. Here, the Russians are slowly realizing that they have created a large-scale man-made environmental disaster, almost as large as Chernobyl. And they are starting to reverse. Russian influence on the information space is changing its tone dramatically. They instantly change their tune and start accusing the Ukrainian side of provocations. Like it's a Bankova operation A reference to the same "war on fakes" that said the dam had somehow collapsed on its own.... http://archive.ph/x8uwT >But even in their excuses, the racists still screwed up. Either the dam was blown up, or Olha was shelled with MLRS.... http://archive.ph/uF0Xm Although any sapper will give a hundred percent guarantee that it is impossible to make such destruction from the outside, the damage here was done by planting explosives >And then they are already beginning to adhere to this thesis, because what they have done is a huge international tragedy, especially in the environmental sense. >I have translated this text from https://t.me/jurnko Telegram channel In other news, the water in that irrigation canal is now flowing back from Crimea into Dněpr.

Atleast you didn't sperg out something about "worry" In fact this dumb game of crafting the narratives is very benefitial, because in the end you lower the IQ of your own side, by forcing them to believe in such dumb shit. without a shred of self-criticism or self-consciousness, because common sense and critical thinking is discouraged because it portrayed as serving "the other side". Americans and westerners are already dumb, but increasingly they are forced to believe the more and more retarded sets of lies and those lies become the building blocks of conclusions that lead to mistakes and failures in the future.

All other liberals, outed themselves by flying to Israel and denouncing Russia and by supporting Ukraine. There were actual politicians, opposition politicians who had some political capital in Russia and could have had some support in future elections, but by openly supporting Ukraine, they commited political suicide inside Russian polical arena. Its like that one action that dooms your career in the field, like loosing the legs for runner, or loosing the sight for sniper.

You don't understand the scales. Russia is ...le big. Those pmcs have some freedoms in regions of Ukraine, but everywhere else they are under control of FSB and they can't simply start moving their shit without orders and permissions. Remember when Prigozhin cried to Shoigu about Ammo? So if army wanted, they could just strangle Prigozhin or other PMC by not giving them any ammo, yet they were giving him a lot. >when Pitun croaks You have no idea what would happen. By succession, Mishustin would become acting president and as one of his first actions, he would assert his dominance by purging a few oligarchs and would be contenders, and in a few weeks the Leviathan of Russian government would go along as if nothing happened.

Each of the borders with the neighbouring country is the potential gateway for smuggling. And the links can be real big, so country X ships goods to country Y and they ship it to Russia or China.

>>273771 >When Russian war effort is exhausted so Russia has to pull the military out of the region. So you mean...never? Because this war is at the defensive stage right now. And even then, Russia didn't declare the state of war, defence budget is still at 3% of GDP, so everything in Russia chugs along as if nothing happened. We can sit those soldiers in trenches for 10 years or even 21 years like US in Afghanistan. And eventually someone will crack. Maybe Ukraine will crack, its presidential elections are soon, maybe Europe will crack, maybe US will crack. But Russia has a long history of those frozen conflicts. You have this fixation that this soon has to be over somehow, that there is going to be some sudden change in one side or the other, that the winner is going to be declared soon - no. Status quo can be maintained by Kremlin where we occupy Crimea and other Oblasts of Ukraine and it lasts, and lasts, and lasts for year, years, years, years, untill people stop listening to Zelensky cries and eventually even Zelensky will go, and multiple administrations in other countries will change, but Russia will still be sitting on that border, not allowing Ukraine into NATO and slowly destroying its economy via attrition.

This one currently draws a lot of money and resources from both sides, and to freeze it Russia would have to withdraw most of its forces as otherwise 3% would become 63%. > Russia will still be sitting on that border, not allowing Ukraine into NATO and slowly destroying its economy via attrition That's what I meant by strategies outdated by decades btw.

>>273642 >Offensive is hard No question about it. The front where the (supposed) main attack is (Velika Novosilka-Vulehdar) the least fortified, only one line were established - or so I heard -, by the Russians, so if anywhere there Ukraine perhaps can do something. On the other hand it's open terrain. We really are early on. >>273671 Ukraine is now in Westerner pockets. Rebuilding the dam will be a good project for US/EU. >>273697 Meh. It seems most of the proofs: they talking gibberish. I bet at 6:51 the mayor of the town doesn't even had his morning vodka, not to mention go to the scene and take a look what's going on. Anyway. Russia could gain: - Flooding AFU troops on the islands, make the terrain downstream less passable. AFU is/will be launching supporting attacks, to engage forces, not allowing them to reinforce the direction of the main strike. One site is this Kherson front. Ukrain could gain: - most of the water flooded Russian hold territory - stopping water supply to Crimea - lowering reservoir level, creating more opportunities for landing strikes across it, somewhere near Energodar, behind the reservoir there is barely any fortification and very few Russian units (Russians did some strikes earlier, perhaps preemtively) On the third hand it might had been accidental in the sense that wasn't conscious effort to blow up the dam. It got damaged last year, no maintenance, and water level was the highest since a long time. >>273700 NS2 was US-Norway co-production: https://seymourhersh.substack.com/p/how-america-took-out-the-nord-stream

>>273774 >Oh, I think using dollars and euros is more likely to be the first time Europe and the United States established a world market Nah, the "world market" you're referring to was established by the US, what you see now as Europe was formerly just the western half as a geopolitical vassal of America. Europe at this point did not have that much weight on its own, nor own currency. What happened then is, EU expanded eastwards gobbling up as much as possible from Soviet Union shitting the bed, established its own currency, and challenged US trade hegemony. And should I mention, all those pics of how China took over the trade hegemon status from US? Well, reality is that EU is actually who predominates in most of those parts of the world which China "took over". See attached two maps – the first one shared a lot by west-haters with iq89, and the second one showing the actual situation. What I'm saying is, EU successfully took over a huge chunk of trade power from US, implemented its own economy... and America did not, in fact, ever manage to do anything against it. You cannot wave it away by claiming "but it is known that Europe is just America's lackey that cannot do anything on its own". Let me remind you that Europe successfully blocked the Iraq invasion from passing UN security council (not that it mattered much, with how US pulled what Putin hoped for and failed spectacularly to do), and even started a trade war with America over it.

>>273791 >first the top feudal lords have to decide whom the people want to be the president. No, there is a clear system of chain of command in place. If old man crocks, then everyone will ask "Who is the big man, who is the boss?" and by law, the boss will be the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister is not some rookie, not some fish out of water idiot. its a very powerfull man, who already has close advisors, friends and colegues who are his clique. The moment he has the FULL power, it means he has the power over propaganda apparatus to ensure he wins elections in 3 months, it means his clique of people will be put in the positions of power in the presidential administration, the guards of the presidents will be his guards. FSB, and dozens of other secret services at his beck and call. The only possible obstacle in the way for the Prime Minister is the leader of Uniter Russia party and previous president - Medvedev. But i guess they will decide something, maybe share the power somehow. Medvedev stepped down at the request of Putin in 2012, and so he can be reasoned with, he is not the one to stab you in the back, because he wants the power and doesn't want to relinquish it, so maybe he will become Prime minister and Mishustin - president, or vice versa. > they want to be rich and powerful fast. They are already rich and powerfull, lol. And all of them have no illusions that they can be somehow accepted in the West again, neither they have the trust in the Western institutions. Before this conflict, they believed that Swiss banks are actually neutral, that UK laws are fair, but that belief is erroded. Oligarch's yachts are getting confiscated abroad, making it unlikely those oligarchs will be embracing West again, because they know that these things can be taken away from them without any legality. >I don't think any of the self-appointed successors want a dragged out conflict When Putin took power from Eltsin, he inherited Chechnya conflict and he dealt with it, solved it so succesfully, that Chechens now are the most loyal soldiiers of the regime. He also inherited simmering conflict in Georgia, Transnistria, Nagorny Karabakh. But he never tried to solve them, just conserving them in that frozen state as they were. Conflicts like that not all loses - conflicts like that become status quo in and of itself. There is a conflict there - and that is reality, that is the fact and that reality is driving certain business and industries together, generating not just loses but profits for many right people. Some people are getting real rich on that conflict in both Ukraine and Russia.

The Ukrainian offensive is still going at Bakhmut and in on the Zaporozhya front in Tokmak direction. All the other push were halted. Real gains for now is at Bakhmut, but then the front is the least solidified there due the Russians stopped their attack only recently. The destroyed Leo 2(s) were geolocated at Mala Tokmachka which means they weren't participating in the attack. Were struck by artillery behind the front. >>274018 The offensive is ongoing for a good 5 days now. So maybe they took out 74 vehicles, but definitely not in one day.

Problem is what they got held up by just forward positions the fortified line is perhaps 10 kms more from there. Anyway offensive is hard when facing planned and prepared defensive lines and enemy in similar strength. Both Kherson and Khakriv offensives were successful because they vastly outnumbered the Russians who did not dig in. Those who expected something like that are beyond optimists.

There are a lot of territories that are modern nomansland. It can be fields, villages. Meaning, that its a territory that you CAN capture, but you can't defend it, because once you capture it, you are inside enemy's line of fire, so if you pour units to defend that nomansland, they are just going to be destroyed by artillery barrage and drone harassment. A lot of territories in the South, where Ukraine tried to attack is just that - flat fields nomansland. Even the name of the city Huliaipole literally translates like WanderField. Russia probably has several lines of defence and reinforcments system. So if Ukraine manages to get some results and push some unit of RuArmy, from frontline, forcing them to retreat, there is ALARM going off in command HQ and planes and helicopters take off, going to that place, and RESERVE armored brigades advance to patch that breach. Ukraine doesn't have time to reach defensible positions, before getting pelted and even if they get far, they don't have time to dig up, before RuArmy reinforcments start working on them. Seems like Ukrainian bet was literally just hoping for RuArmy's low morale and incompetence in creating that system of alarm and reinforcments. Literally, the bet was that once Russian soldier sees leopards, he will piss his pants and start running, thinking there is nothing he can do to it. And Ukraine would just be advancing into empty trenches and cities. And Russian South Operational army command was supposed to ignore the losses of territory and just report that everything is fine, just like they did with Izyum, occasionally throwing at the advancing Ukrainian forces the unpreppered re-inforcments that were drawn from different places in Russia, not accustomed to local battlefield and not supported by airforce. Seems like that bet didn't pay out so far. The brigades that defend the South front have been there for a long time, they know their trenches, know the communications and how to call on air force, reinforcments are competent too. Does Ukraine have any ace up their sleeve to reveal in the upcoming months?

Finland gave Ukraine 3 Leopard 2R HMBV (Heavy Mine Breaching Vehicle) in total. In this picture you can see all of them destroyed, close to each other. Also in this picture Bergepanzer 3 Buffel given to Ukraine by Canada. Sooo...there is a mine field. How do you demine it under fire? There are different approaches, one is to drive next to the mine with mine clearing vehicle and make a breach. This seems to be loosing proposition. At the very least those mine clearning vehicles should be unmanned, because if each of them has people inside, then its a useless loss of life. There is a remote way of destroying mines using explosives fired from the distance, but the charge to make a breach is really heavy most of the times and can't fly far. And to clear the mines you need to explode them on the big depth, but then you just turning the ground up, it just creates big elongated crater with comlicated bottom that a few vehicles can drive through.

The mines can be laid down remotely too, like this. This isn't just reactive artillery, this is new system of creating minefields using MLRS. Each of them falls down, digs and waits for vehicle of enemy. That way you can create mine fields in the enemy backyardm blocking their retreat or resupply routes without even stepping foot on them or even mine area right in front of advancing enemy.

Pynya had a pressing today, or something. Among other things, he said that Puccia lost ==54 TONKS== in this counteroffensive. Meanwhile, Oryxspioenkop, the known inflator of figures and peddler of photos of same wreckage several times (source: ziggers) has only counted 31. Pynya's claim also falls in line with the losses Ukr MoD is claiming – 58 tanks since last Wednesday... tl;dr Pynya accidentally confirmed that those numbers you see here are correct

Some say this was their real plan. And they might not abandon it, because they still have a lot of meat, steel and a lot of determination to foce this counter-offensive meme. Might even attempt tonight Even though everyone already knows of their plans and there is no mystery, no secret about it.

>>274980 That's silly. Liek at Velike Novosilka they have tank, marine, and territorial defense brigades, and I think no mechanized ones. And right now there is the main effort it seems. Besides I don't think they have such plan that is set in stone. Lots of units aren't committed yet, and I think they are having this special probing operation where they are trying for the way of least resistance and if they find it, there will they commit the most weight which they can re-allocate. But for that they still have to reach the fortified lines and see how they fare. In Tokmak direction even if they brake one line, there are more behind. The least fortified part is at VNovosilka. They probably will just go on take patches of land. Problem is AFU is handicapped in the air, and their air defense is inadequate. They are aware of these shortcomings. This offensive has to go, because they promised it so much, and Westerner public opinion has to see it is worth to supporting them. They'll gonna get further equipment both from Europe and USA, more tanks (Leopard 2s and Abrams), and even fighter jets. These won't arrive tomorrow but if they can keep up, maybe half a year and they have more units trained, and reinforcements for the current ones (which will have considerable combat experience like the 47th Mechanized Brigade which is now essentially green). Ukraine has no previous experience in real fight against fortified enemy, nor Kherson, neither Kharkov was an offensive against such. So they blunder through this one. They have theoretical knowledge, they saw what Russians did, and themselves participated as defenders so they know what the defenders do. But putting that into practice is a different thing.

>>274991 They had losses around Bakhmut, so they might redirect vehicles and people for re-arming and re-populating those old Brigades, or have those brigades try some local offensive attempts on isolated directions, but not concentrated in one place as one armoured fist. Because if you really concentrate many vehicles and people in one place, for the supposed offensive, they are easily detected, those 4000 people per brigade need to be housed somewhere, and 10 brigades its like 40000 people, easily detectable, lots of chatter on radiowaves. Its not a video game, where the commander gives the command and the unit follows it precisely. The task of coodrinating those brigades is also hard, because each of them has the mind of their own, eager to make new dumb mistakes. i saw a lot of disconnected vehicles just driving around, as if alone by Ukrainian army, often they don't really care that they are part of some brigade, they just get fired upon, get a few hits, few wounded and like they got a checkbook, here is their logic: - our vehicle got hit - CHECK - we have wounded soldier - CHECK We have two checks, now we can retreat as far back as we can and just sit our ass in the back, claiming our radio was malfunctioning and we didn't hear commands, lets retreat 100km and while army will figure out how to transport us back to battlefield, we can rest and sleep in the rear end of the action. Thats how many of them think and you'd have a hard time convincing them to march through artillery barrages and minefiields to Mariupol.

The same can be said about the Ukrainian MoD's daily reports of the Russian losses, where they write "liquidated" at the personnel line make it appear as they actually killed that many people. They lump together KIA, WIA, MIA, and POWs, when those are all different things - with the exception that they are called "losses" or "casualties", which doesn't mean dead. Plus a person can get wounded on more then one occasion, and that person can missing - then reappear, sometimes returned, sometimes as POW, or wounded, and the same person after all this can still die, so only one man can make up several in the "casualty" report.

Just from the top of my head ATACMS are coming soon. F-16 will come later. Germany, Norway, Czechia, Italy ordered Leopard 2A8, older Leopards will be sent to Ukraine. Germany will deliver first batches of new Gepard ammunition in July. A few dozen Abrams tanks will arrive this year. About 100 Leopard 1 will arrive this year. Israel is selling Merkavas, very likely older tanks will go to Ukraine in exchange. Ukraine isn't running out of support any time soon. Meanwhile we get more news about Russian cruelty. Apparantly it is not that uncommon that they castrate Ukrainian POWs. This might be demoralizing for a few individuals on the front line, but it will strengthen the resolve of everyone else and make the world despise Russia more. Putin completely rejecting any kind of attempts at peace talks will also further escalate Western support for Ukraine, while Russia is losing more and more modern combat systems that they can't readily replace. Fighting with older systems means more casualties. Fighting with less experienced troops means more casualties. Putin is exterminating the Russian male population and the Chinese are lying in wait. They will take Vladivostok, they will take Russian wives and they will take over Russian economic assets. I still remember Roosters gloating about the flight and expulsion of 10-15 million ethnic Germans after WWII and how Germany lost like half it's territory. Well, soon they will experience something very similar themselves. And all they have to blame is Putler and themselves. Smert occupantam. Slava Ukraini.

And not to mention the Nanking Incident (Nanking Massacre). ==The Nanking Incident (Nanking Massacre) is a fabrication by the Chinese idiots! ==If there was a Nanking Incident, why is it that the population of Nanking after the Incident is larger than before the Incident? Can you explain it? Why do you believe it? Let's say there was a dastardly act by the Kwantung Army. But I can assure you that it was not commanded by the military. ==It was not commanded by the military, but by individual decisions! == and even if one person in the Kwantung Army did commit such an act, it was not a military command. And let's say a member of the Kwantung Army committed a despicable atrocity. But the Japanese military would take very severe action against the soldier who committed the despicable atrocity. Why are you being deceived by GHQ, internet disinformation, and anti-Japanese Chinese? I thought people overseas were smarter than this.

I am well aware of that. But at the time of the Tokyo Trials, "only the defeated Japanese (including those who were not guilty)" were unilaterally judged by the US. You are right, Japan is not the only one who committed war crimes. There are Americans who committed war crimes, but the U.S. was not judged at all because it was the "victorious nation. In addition, the U.S. committed the biggest war crime of all, the dropping of the atomic bombs, and yet they were never tried.

That war happened more than 150 years ago, and uwugay is extremely irrelevant, so irrelevant that your country only provided 5500 troops to that war so they probably did not rape anyone kek. About commies, it does not have anything to do with war crimes. Offtopic. >but im pretty sure Chile raped Lima when they conquered it First of all they did not conquer Lima, they occupied it, learn the difference between a conquest and an occupation. By that logic you would be macaco or a moortuguese because they occupied the Banda Oriental for some time (and I would be a roto because they occupied Lima, my home town for sometime). Second, yes, rotos invaders commited a lot of war crimes when they invaded my country. Repaso (killing the wounded soldiers, which was already established as a war crime by the Geneva Convention of 1864), raping, pillaging (burning and destroying buildings, stealing valuable items like paintings, books, jewelry, luxurious furniture, etc. that my country and specially Lima was full it), etc. Not to mention they broke every armistice and every agreement they proposed. Contemporary rotos do not feel guilt, they actually feel proud of the war crimes of their ancestors (their history books put them as heroes instead of the common criminals and scum they really were, considering that they used real criminals and prisoners for this war effort). But Chile is not a strong nation (they have good planes but they can't use them without gringo's authorization, not to mention they have 0 real combat experience because the last war they fought is the one we are talking about and they always get REKT by Peruvian forces in war games the US makes with other Latin American countries), they live terrified of a war with any of it's neighbours (check their war doctrine) because they know that the dishonorable behaviour they ancestors did will escalate into a triple front war and probably most of it's population will be killed and most of it's territories will be annexed IF that country continues to exist after war (that would be generous to say the least). This is what happens when your nation has that kind of dishonorable behaviour you are glorifying like an edgy kid. >dont feel any guilt for that like the Germans What the fuck are you talking about, contemporary German society it's built upon guilt because of the actions of the Third Reich. It's against the law to say Holocaust isn't real and you can get into jail just by saving Nazi symbols in your PC. Now you are talking from your ass. >lool at Japan or Turkey, they show no guilt of what they done in the past. Because only cucks do that. Calling a literal puppet as Japan a strong nation is laughable. They can't move a finger without gringo's authorization and they have gringo bases in their country, they are as cuck and castrated as contemporary Germans are. Second, you can't compare things that happed 140 years ago (as the rotos invading my country) or 150 years ago (war of the triple alliance) with things that happened during and after WWI (Armenian Genocide) or things that happened during WWII for the case of Japan. The wounds of these events are still fresh, ask chinks or Koreans. >Guilt is a sign of weakness This is what a sociopath would say. The issue here is not being proud of war crimes (as rotos) or evading the guilt from war crimes (as Japan and Turkey), the thing is to teach real history as it happened, with it's good deeds and bad deeds, it's about objectivity. And if you believe that by going to war you must commit war crimes, you are mistaken (well, your whole reasoning sounds like an edgy kid). Peruvian soldiers, for example, have not done any war crimes during the following campaings where they occupied enemy territory: - Reconquering of Alto Peru by Ejercito Real del Peru (1810-1823) - Reconquering of Chile by the Ejercito Real del Peru (1814-1817) - Santa Cruz auxiliary expedition to Quito (1822) - Peruvian intervention in Bolivia (1828) - War against Bolivia (1841-1842) - First war against Ecuador (1858-1860) - Second war against Ecuador (1941-1942). Here our soldiers were greeted as heroes by the civil population because the Ecuadorian police and armed forces started pillaging their own towns and cities, and we arrived with rations to distribute to the civilians that were starving because of the aforementioned pillaging. I do not count the war against Colombia because we occupied territory that was full of Peruvians, for obvious reasons no need to signal that no war crimes were commited here. It is only fair to recognize war crimes, story can not be deleted and the truth will always be known at the end. Even Germans recognize the war crimes at WWII and Russians recognize the war crimes Soviets did during WWII too. Now, fuck off.

This is what happens when your nation has that kind of dishonorable behaviour you are glorifying like an edgy kid. Is not about glorifying war crimes, guilt plays a huge role in the political scene, because it weakens the nationalism and the nation, and the guilt always come from leftists groups specially cosmopolitans, You can see that in Germany, a cosmopilitan country at this point. If they want to implement right wing policies they couldnt because Nazis did it, and they must avoid the past at all costs. And you can cope all the time, but Chile is a strong nation maybe not globally but in our continent, the third in the rankings in hispanic america, stronger than Peru, they have war experience also, because they send countries to fight terrorism for the UN like most of latin countries do. >What the fuck are you talking about, contemporary German society it's built upon guilt because of the actions of the Third Reich.

>>275730 >If someone commits a murder, should they be released of all charges if somebody else commited another murder near that time and that murder was more violent? Why did you make such a poor analogy? There are many funny parts, but I will only point out one this time. I did say that the Japanese military did indeed suppress language and culture, and that it did so more lightly and less frequently than the powers of the time. And this is sadly "true". But please read the statement in >275722 once again.Did you finish reading. =="Did I say even one word of "because it was the Japanese military, all their language and cultural oppression is allowed"? You didn't say that, did you? == I would like you to improve your reading comprehension of the text. Then we can have a higher quality debate. >Is this some alternative history? Hangeul was revived shortly before the annexation, and later Japan banned teaching Korean in schools altogether. Yeah, he seems to have had a very intense anti-Japanese upbringing. (Or brainwashed by anti-Japanese Koreans/Chinese.) Then let me, this Japanese, explain. First of all, the Korean language used by the ruling class in Korea as a written language, a language of culture, and a language of politics, was "Hanbun", not "Korean" (there was no written language to begin with, and although there was the "Bireiyomi", which was like Manyogana, to add Korean notes to Hanbun, it never developed or spread in any particular way. ). However, since the common people would have been troubled by this, they ordered scholars to create a script to write "Joseonese" (not necessarily entirely based on the Joseon language, but it was also intended to be used as a kana so that Chinese characters could be read properly), but it was not particularly popularized or educated, and the Chinese language, Confucian studies, and Zhuji studies were the most popular. The scholars who thought that Chinese literature, Confucianism, and Jujitsu were the best, and that it was impossible to study or do politics in the Korean language, and the village Confucian scholars who would have played a leading role in the education, if it had been conducted, were not interested in teaching the Korean language or studying in the Korean language at all, but rather, were more interested in passing the Joseon-style kwaju (examination). They had no interest in teaching the Korean language or learning Korean, and even when it was forbidden or not available, they made no actual efforts to promote and educate people in the Korean language. It would be an exaggeration to say that the Hunmin-jeongeum was never used for practical purposes, but Korean scholars were not basically interested in studying their own literature, language, or history, as, for example, Hon'yi Nobunaga did with the Manyoshu and Kojiki in Japan, even after the Japanese Meiji period. It was Japanese scholars (not to say that Koreans were not involved at all) who studied the grammar of the Korean language, discovered the Hunmin-jeongeum as the script for writing the Korean alphabet, and developed the Korean alphabet that has been used to this day (including the deletion of obsolete characters and rearrangement of writing due to phonetic changes since that time), It was also the Japanese government that established a system to teach this to all Koreans in schools. Because of this history, it is misleading and inaccurate to say that "the Japanese created Hangeul," but there is no doubt that it is a figure of speech. At the very least, it is a complete falsehood, or at least political propaganda, to say that the "Hunminjeongeum (Hangul alphabet)" created by King Sejong the Great "spread and developed as it did, leading to today's Hangeul". > Yeah, killing a person is so hard and requires so many supplies and ammo. Average number of shots fired for a single kill during WWII infantry combat was about 40k. To kill strangled civilian you only need one single shot. Or you can even use a knife, hammer or whatever else there's around you. Hah, don't make me say the same thing over and over again. ==The Japanese army with few supplies and resources would not bother to use even a single bullet just to "pass the time" of that "massacre"! == Even if it was a knife, they would never use it. They would not use even a knife, because they would not want the blade to get damaged just to "pass the time" of "massacre". How many times do I have to tell you? Please understand what I'm saying. >Yes, that's why I asked you about the Nuremberg trials specifically.

To be honest Koreans under Japanese rule had it better. Right after they were taken out of their supervision commies invaded they tore the country apart in two, caused massive war with huge casualties - a war btw has not yet closed down up to this day - and destined half of the country to stagnation and starvation for a long time. Problem with Korea is that it was always situated between a strong continental power (be it Chinese, Mongol, or Russian at any time) and Japan which always perceived as the way into Japan for an invading foreign power (as it is), and in the times when Japan found itself, she found to power to do against it. So Korea found itself between the rock and a hard place. Japan was banned to defend herself basically this is why Korea got to be the victim of the commies and the US had to make the realization that her newly acquired pet Japan - and her Pacific Ocean hegemony - is in danger and hat to intervene. It was too little and too late tho. Now we have this powder keg and have to worry about the Fat Rocketman (or at least they try to scare us with). As for the Koreans, do they have it better now? Do they really have the freedom of choice for themselves? Not North, but not even South. So in the grand scheme of things they were better with the Japs.

Japan is an extremely gregarious society, with honor and loyalty to the death as historical cultural values. When Douglas MacArthur was given the order to rebuild Japan, he knew from his personal ties to Asia for much of his life that if he were to do away with the entire millennia-old imperial political structure overnight, it would probably start a civil war. Japan was given many freedoms, because unlike the Nazis, it fought the second world war as the great empires fought the first world war, that is to say at the social level, the majority of the population believed blindly in the emperor, who by the way WAS A GOD ACCORDING TO JAPANESE LAW. (The gringos changed the Japanese constitution to remove his divine right). With a war that without the bombs would have required a land invasion of Japan, and where the Japanese army had no intention of surrendering (it was retreating from China and Korea for the defense of Japan) no one wanted to risk a pro-monarchist guerrilla struggle.

From 1910 to 1945, the Korean Peninsula was a Japanese territory, so "Koreans" did not exist and were treated as "Japanese". It is a fact that Koreans were forced to study Japanese as part of the imperialization policy in order to become Japanese during this period. Of course, they were not forced to learn only Japanese, but they were taught using textbooks with Hangul in them. Toward the end of the war, the degree of coercion became much stronger, and it seems that the Korean language was eliminated in a way that differentiated and eliminated dialects, as in the process of unifying the Japanese language, but we Japanese do not have to feel guilty about this. I don't think we Japanese need to feel guilty about that. If Korea was an independent nation at that time and Japanese language was forced to be used there, it would be a big problem, As I wrote in the beginning, Korea did not exist from 1910 to 1945 and was a Japanese territory, so whatever was done there was only due to the "circumstances of the time" and not something that should be measured by today's values. It was only natural for the military to enforce Japanese language at the end of the war. A person who only understands Korean and Hangeul cannot be used as a soldier, and the army cannot unify its will. It was a matter of course under the system of universal conscription and all-out warfare, and I think it was due to the "circumstances of the time" and not something to be measured by the values of the present day.

Q: Was Korea a colony of Japan? A: It was annexed, not colonized. Korea wanted to become independent from the miserable vassal state, so Korea wanted to be annexed to Japan. This is known throughout the world. The reason why Korea is called a colony is to erase from history the period when Korea was a slave-like vassal state because the fabricated history it created was too good to be true. If it were known that Korea was annexed by Japan and given independence, the people of Korea would find out about the fabricated history. A2: Japan also annexed Korea, and it was Japan that made Korea independent from (Qing) China, but in Korean textbooks (Article 1 of the Treaty of Shimonoseki) is all but erased because it shows Korea as a vassal state.

It seems that although they educated Koreans in Japanese, they did not go so far as to completely deprive Koreans of the Korean language. According to a Japanese translation of a Korean broadcasting history website, Japanese-language broadcasting by the Korean Broadcasting Corporation was discontinued in September 1945, immediately after the liberation of Korea; the proclamation posters of the Provisional People's Committee of North Korea used a lot of Chinese characters but did not include hiragana or other Japanese characters. and a photo of a welcome convention to welcome Kim Il Sung home shows the " The fact that the "banner" behind the banner is written in a mixture of Chinese characters and Korean characters suggests that the Japanese language had not penetrated the Korean people for a long time. (Or, perhaps, the structure of Japanese and Korean was not as strong as it had been in the past. (Or, given the similarity in structure between Japanese and Korean, it may be that knowledge and information coming from Japan could be converted into Korean relatively easily.)

People in Korea say things like "36 years of Japanese colonial rule, (Annexation, not colony)" but in terms of full years, it was only 34 years and 10 months. Schools were basically in Japanese, but Korean was also available, and the Korean language was compulsory until 1940. It was during this period that Hangeul became widespread.

Q: What is the Miracle on the Han River? A: The Miracle on the Hangang The Miracle on the Han River was the result of the South Korean government using all of the reparations (including those for comfort women) paid by Japan to South Korea. Devastated after the Korean War, Korea was the poorest country in the world until the early 1960s, with a GDP below that of North Korea. Such a revived South Korea lied to the Japanese side that it would pay its citizens individually under the Japan-Korea Claims Agreement, and the $300 million in grant money paid as a claims fund was used to fund domestic investment for the development of the South Korean economy. As a result, Korea developed into one of the world's top 10 economic powers in half a century, and the Korean companies that benefited from this development grew into huge conglomerates. This is the trajectory of the Han River.

Ukraine evacuating Sumy Oblast. Why? Do they think they can repeat Prigozhin's march on Moscow while Russian forces dug up in Kherson and Zaporozhzhzhzass? Its so funny.

Problem is in theory they can't use Western toys for this, but then they have the weapons, Biden can't prevent them to use them. Further problem is: with what force? They prepared that 12 brigades of 40K people, and I think most units still haven't been committed, but those who did are getting eroded by the day, and this offensive still have to go on at least to July 11-12, because they have to show results till the NATO summit.

I can say with confidence, that Ruthenian government got a little more serious about war production. Just a bit. Because the big boys, big name politicians started regularly visit millitary factories. Why does it mean more serious? Because often the visit of big boss is like a catalyst to "get your shit together" and many factories start moving when they are visited by important person, they stop fiddling their thumbs and clean shit, put people to work, activate. And since the big faces regularly go everywhere, everyone starts moving. Its not a big plus, but its something. Before - big faces were doing...something, but not this.

How do you know Russia is losing? Excellent Ukrainian operational security has mostly blacked out news for the front. 1. Russians are asking for a ceasefire. Russia desperately wants to freeze the battlefield; 2. They are sending less trained soldiers into battle in large numbers. The best RF units have been eviscerated; 3. Most conscripts sent in now are equipped with ancient Russian helmets and very old weapons and nothing else. They often seem to have been drafted only weeks before their capture (no training); 4. Russians, boasting of making hundreds of T90M tanks, seem only able to send ancient T62/T54s into UKR now. Every day the Ukrainian military grows more modern than the Russians; 5. Russia has stripped its other borders of military personnel and equipment; 6. The refugee flow to Poland, where I live, is almost nothing now. I drive right by their embassy every week, where there were big lines in the early months of the war. Many Ukrainians actually going home now. 7. Russian military bloggers are not making the rosy reports like the Kremlin post. They also totally contradict the Russian trolls on Twitter. 8. The Russian economy is tanking. Ruble is rapidly becoming worthless; 9. We do not see many new videos or photos on Twitter from pro-Russian sources depicting great tactical victories. The isolated instances have been re-posted hundreds of times. One Russian guy just admitted this. 10. Dozens of Russian units and their families back home are posting videos asking for help due to their lack of support on the front and the "suicide" missions that they are asked to perform. 11. Russian units are starting to see mutinies and desertions on a bigger scale; 12. Ukrainian drones operate feely on the battlefield and deep into Russian lines. Air defense has been shredded by UKR precision artillery and drone strikes; 13. No Russian advance is ultimately successful and only leads to massive losses. They are drawn into combat and destroyed. Russians units have lost most of their combat effectiveness. None of these indicators reflect any chance that Russia is winning or that the war is even a "stalemate" right now. Confirmation will be forthcoming as major Ukrainians victories are very close now.
