In this series, I’ve done my best to choose complementary images of the Soviet and American veterans. I’ve done my best not only to match gender and poses, I’ve done my best to match the expressions, as well… to underscore the common humanity of them all. If you want to honour the World War II vets, you have to honour the VOV vets… and vice versa.

Remember those who came before us and never forget what they endured to smash Hitler and his evil. Don’t support the heirs of the Nazis today. Support the free people of Novorossiya… it’s your duty before God and man…

Nothing is forgotten… No one is forgotten!

They all had faces… They all had names…

They cleansed the earth of a horrid evil…

THANK YOU!

America wasn’t always an aggressor on the international scene. This is a situation where “Back to the Future” would be a definite improvement. I wish that it won’t take too high a butcher’s bill for America to find out that it can’t control the world. Alexander couldn’t do it… Caesar couldn’t do it… Napoleon couldn’t do it… Hitler couldn’t do it… America won’t be able to do it. I pray for peace… as should you.

Remember those who came before us and never forget what they endured to smash Hitler and his evil. Don’t support the heirs of the Nazis today. Support the free people of Novorossiya… it’s your duty before God and man…

30 March 2015. A Point to Ponder… Why is ISIS So Horrid and the KKK Not?

______________________________

Let’s see… is there much difference in the POV of ISIS and the KKK (I’d add in the White Citizens’ Councils and those like Lester Maddox)? I’d say much less than one would think. Actually, BOTH are perversions of major world religions. I know many Muslims… I don’t know a single terrorist amongst them. However, I wouldn’t say the same about some (a minority, but a palpable number) of the “Ukrainian Catholics” and Ukrainian Orthodox” that I’ve met. Terrorism isn’t a part of either Islam or Christianity. Full stop. Those who inject such into these faiths are heretics, no doubt about it. The hate spewed out upon Muslims by the ignorant is bullshit… I’ll stand tall and say so. ISIS is wrong for killing Christians in Mesopotamia… the KKK was wrong for lynching blacks… the Right Sector is wrong for deliberately shelling innocent civilians… I’d say that there was plenty of blame to go ’round on BOTH sides!

Guess what? Both Islam and Christianity are correct in saying that we live in a fallen world. Both are right in saying that the world is in need of redemption. Therefore, why should evil’s existence surprise us? Rather, we must wrestle with it… think on it… it’s a meaty point to ponder…

29 March 2015. “Thank You, America, for this Hummer!”

00 captured HUMMER. Ukraine. Novorossiya. 29.03.15

______________________________

The image shows Cossack commander Sergei Kozitsyn, a patriot leader in the VSN in Novorossiya, displaying his new Humvee command vehicle, captured from junta forces in Debaltsevo. There is bootless talk of American “lethal aid” to the junta forces. Firstly, the USA can’t send NATO-standard ordnance to the junta… all of its present equipment is Sov-standard; if it sent NATO-standard matériel, it’d create a logistics nightmare. Things are bollixed up enough in the junta-misruled Ukraine… to have two separate logistics streams running at the same time is an invitation to disaster. To speak plainly, that makes a classic snafu of sending NATO-standard munitions to a unit using Sov-standard ordnance (or vice versa) ridiculously probable (the junta forces are FUBAR enough without such foolishness). Frankly, the level of C3I* in the junta forces is too low to gamble with such. Factor in the fact that many of the prewar cadre of the Ukrainian forces rallied to Russia and that many of the rest were “lustrated”… well, you can see where I’m going. In the best of situations, it’s looking for trouble… Banderstan is a Jabberwockian state full of more nuts than a PayDay bar. It’d be bollocks on stilts…

  • C3I: Command, Control, Communications, and Intelligence

By the way, the machine gun on the cupola is a Sov-standard DShK… it means that the junta has enough people left with brains to remove the NATO-standard GPMG, as it’d be almost impossible to keep it supplied with sufficient ammunition. Besides that, to fire the weapon, a crewman has to expose themselves… it isn’t in an enclosed mounting. Also, note that there are no slits in the armoured visors over the windscreen. That is, the visors must always be in the “up” position when on the move. This vehicle isn’t a combat vehicle… the “armour” is only sufficient to keep out rifle-calibre rounds… a heavy MG, autocannon, or RPG could easily defeat this. On top of all that, the additional weight of the improvised armour package puts strain on the engine, drivetrain, and suspension. In short, this is a battle-taxi, nothing more.
