    The dumb has always been there. social media has just made it easier for them to get together. The 24 hour news channels also hasn't helped , as news has changed from information to entertainment .

    If and when history will find me on the wrong side, a cynical part of me thinks it would be productive to rise in the new russian mir and then persecute shit out of everyone to the extent that would make Beria blush, just to teach them a lesson. Blame reading Herbert's God Emperor in my teen forming years. Turns out it might be the only way.

    I remember reading that current head of state security was his old pal, as he needed someone he could fully trust after he won the election. But now with war going, he needs somebody that has actual competence to run the job.

    Yeh boyhood friends. He is not pleased that some of his secret service et all are not fully 100% for taking the fight. I get that. He is a all in kind of guy (by now).

    All truth passes through three stages.
    First, it is ridiculed.
    Second, it is violently opposed.
    Third, it is accepted as being self-evident..

    If this were true, why not ask his old pal to resign rather than firing him in the way he did?

    A #Russian parliamentary commission stated that blood analysis of #Ukrainian servicemen showed that they had been subjected to "secret experiments". According to the commission, these experiments resulted in the transformation of the soldiers into "cruel monsters".

    Well considering russian troops were issued mres from 2014, you can kind of guess reaction to observing soldiers that are well fed with protein rich diet.

    It is the first time I see barrel life mentioned.
    Been wondering for a long time, how long can the USSR artillery keep firing.
