Olga Petrova, the creator and builder of the truck

______________________________

Who woulda thunk it? The creator of this massive monster truck was… a woman! Mirabile dictu! What’ll that do to all those guys who hang those goofy “balls” on their trucks?

This truck can carry 1.5 tonnes payload in its body and a similar amount in a trailer cross-country. To speak roughly, it can carry twice that amount on a modern metalled (“paved”) road. Thus, it can carry more than a HMMVW… and is far more capable of handling extreme terrain and conditions. Do recall the story about the silver flea and the humble Russian smith…

26 July 2015. A Demot: None DARE Care It Repression

00 kabul then and now 01. 220715

______________________________

I saw some demots using the above comparison images on the web… they convinced me that I could do better. However, instead of criticising the original posters, I decided to buckle down and do the work to create something of higher quality… I’m of the Little RED Hen school, after all. Besides, some people have good ideas, but their computer skills suck (or, more likely, their PhotoShop skills suck)… that’s by no means a personal failing. As I say, you can buckle down and produce a “good work” or you can issue ad hominem criticisms like Dreher and Whiteford do. I prefer the former… it’s a positive contribution to the common dialogue. As far as the latter’s concerned… the less said of it, the better.

Look at the images… the Soviets protected women’s rights in Afghanistan… the Anglo Americans (and their Islamist pals) trampled all over them. Now… WHO is the “Evil Empire?” Not so simple, is it?
