    Been to Bosnia. I started to understand the slav human. Saying please is weakness. Then they laugh at you. To Putin the Russian people mean nothing. He will use nukes if he is losing. It is all the same to him. Russia can disappear if he loses. The same as Hiler said the stronger race won. Germans can die.

    But in situation like tanks in a wrong place " we will kill all of you in that place if you don't move ".
    "
    The slav General said well said. We go away immediately. End of story.

    I don't know how but we must be strong. Asking please is weakness to them. What has UN or Eu Created? Bring back Patton. And see you in Moscow. We are weak when we should be strong. Russia sniffs that.

    The Russian Imperial Guard had its origins in the select group established by Peter the Great in the neighbourhood of Moscow in his youth.

    After his coronation, Nicholas II of Russia leaves Dormition Cathedral. The Chevalier Guard Lieutenant marching in front to the Tsar's right is Mannerheim, later-to-be the main national and military figure of Finland during the century.

    Not bad. I might put more weight on hit-and-run tactics in Winter war, when also the winter was coldest in ages. The Finns hit quickly with ski troops and as quickly disappeared into the night. The Soviets were isolated into smaller groups that did not get supplies and were eliminated one by one. The way back was cut and new troops stopped from coming to help. In continuation war the Soviets had better tanks and more men but our artillery, the Finnish will to fight, our bomber force and the panzerschrecks we got from Germany stopped the Red Army finally in Tali-Ihantala. Stalin decided he needed the troops to get to Berlin not trying to invade Finland and pulled back leaving us alone and we made peace in September 1944.

    Teams of autonomous aircraft collaborating with a crewed airplane, in which each aircraft in the formation performs a unique mission on its own, is far more effective than the so-called “loyal wingman” approach, in which a piloted aircraft pairs with just one similarly-equipped, autonomous multimission aircraft—or so Lockheed Martin has concluded. It also found cost effectiveness in pairing expensive but survivable uncrewed systems with relatively cheap ones.

    So said John Clark, the new head of Lockheed Martin’s Advanced Development Programs unit, or Skunk Works. Clark, who has had a career with the ADP unit in intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and uncrewed aircraft, has been running the unit since April, when previous general manager Jeff Babione retired.

    Billionaire Bill Gates has pledged again to give his wealth away, adding that he will eventually "drop off" the world's rich list.

    It came as the Microsoft co-founder announced he would make a $20bn (£17bn) donation to his philanthropic fund.

    I never actually realized how relaxing it is to shoot a target full of holes. What with the price of ammo now a days I'm down to 30-40 rounds of .22 through the Hi Standard HD, followed by a couple magazines of 9mm. Wait a week or so and repeat. Nothing eases stress like punching holes in a face size target at 15 yards.
