Lab Rats to the Front! by Patrick Armstrong

Nobody, certainly not the Russians, stands a chance against the US and NATO’s combined woke forces. From Patrick Armstrong at strategic-culture.org:

We sleep soundly in our beds, because rough men stand ready in the night to do violence on those who would harm us.

George Orwell

NATO contemplates Kaliningrad: “We think through those plans all the time, and… if that would ever come to fruition, we’d be ready to execute.” It would be “a multi-domain, very timely and effective capability”. “The best Polish military units, numbering 30,000 soldiers, should take part in the quick offensive“. Multi-domain, best Polish; in the imaginations of the strategists of Laputa, the Russians passively await the blow. But now we must leave the empyrean realms of pure thought and float down to earth; there we find that “The largest headquarters military exercises Winter 2020 in Poland ended with the complete defeat of Polish troops: on the fifth day of the virtual conflict, the enemy reached the banks of the Vistula and surrounded Warsaw“.

Moscow has just told us (in the guise of a “suggestion” from two scientists) what it would do while NATO was polishing its multi-domains. Andrei Martyanov summarises it. Russia knows that US/NATO attacks start with a heavy air bombardment. And very effective it is too. Against Iraq or Libya which had poorly-coordinated, poorly-maintained, obsolete air defence systems. Or against Afghanistan which had none at all. Went well until the Serbs sent the F-117 into premature obsolescence. But Russia has excellent air defences. But more to the point, which is what our two professors are talking about, it has a host of highly effective missiles, many of them hypersonic and it knows where to aim them.

  1. ” NATO has already spent twice as long in Afghanistan as the USSR did and there isn’t anything to suggest it will be leaving: despite the agreement to be out by 1 May 2021, “no decision”.”

    Something has going right in Afghanistan (if true) namely the increase in opium( and thus heroin) production for the last two decades. Mere coincidence? for reference 28.349 grams = 1 ounce

    • That’s why we’re never getting out of Afghanistan. It’s also one of the reasons why we stayed in Vietnam so long. I can’t recommend highly enough The Politics of Heroin, CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade, by Alfred W. McCoy for anyone who wants to deep dive into the subject. I’m using it as a research reference for my next novel.
