It’s always interesting to see Tanki’s alternate reality, so let’s check it out this Saturday morning. For those of you who don’t know, tanks oppose US imperialism (so far so good), but think about it only America can be imperialist. It looks like this:
I’ve covered tanks before here and here , and they’re named after leftists who defended the Soviet Union even after tanks were used to crush uprisings in Budapest and Prague. In modern times, it looks like this:
These days, they are certainly upset with Nancy Pelosi.
only shown, In a civilian plane, while dozens of Chinese planes buzz around, missiles fly over Taiwan, and all sea and airspace around the island is closed for “military exercises” — well, that is. us. It “grows”. Now, if you’re thinking, “Well, at least this tank should care about the freedom of Hong Kong people?” Ha ha no
No one is defending Britain’s colonial past, the West has a tainted history in this regard. But remember, the tank does not resist all Colonialism, only of the Western kind. So it is quite interesting that it was china which prevented Britain from transforming Hong Kong into a full democracy.
In the 1960s and 70s, when Britain considered introducing direct elections, Communist China rejected the idea, warning Britain to “preserve Hong Kong’s colonial status”. Direct elections were later allowed, but for limited seats in the local legislature in 1991, with a countdown to Hong Kong’s return to China. The last British governor, Chris Patton, expanded the number of directly elected council seats, but an angry China saw this as a breach of the handover agreement and immediately revoked that legislature after resuming sovereignty. was appointed
If you think of China as a somehow perfect society, then you should be able to overcome this painful issue of the Uyghurs.
You can find a lot of information about China’s treatment of Uyghurs, but here are the top ones from the Council on Foreign Relations and the BBC. This is genocide.
But hey, tanks know who the real baddies are:
If you’re wondering why Pelosi is “bad” for meeting the Dalai Lama, she calls him “S.”Law lords and terrorists.” You know, since he advocates independence for Tibet, and he has committed murder, let me do some math… take one… zero People in their desperate search for self-determination.
Tanks are so anti-Semitic, duh.
They are very anti-LGBT for some reason.
Imagine things that never happened, and then imagine a group more Things that are not real, and then shut up about something unrelated! Yes, God knows what his thought process must be.
Meanwhile, the US Senate voted to admit Finland and Sweden to NATO. That made Tanki sad.
Glenn Greenwald, a friend of Putin’s, was confused.
Honestly have no clue what he is talking about. 1998 expansion bringing Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic into NATO, liberal stalwart Dems. Barbara Boxer, Russ Feingold, Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Carl Levin, Barb Mikulski, and Patty Murray voted yes. (Interestingly, 9 Republicans and 10 Democrats voted no, but they were the majority of the party. Conservative Wings, such as Kent Conrad, Byron Dorgan, and Dale Bumper. Paul Wellstone and Ron Wyden also voted no, so … it was complicated. But these were certainly not some mainstream liberal positions.
Anyway, that sums it up:
Remember when Ukraine needed NATO-standard artillery because it was running out of Soviet-caliber ammo? There’s still a lot of old stuff showing up in the videos.
There are no new updates to report from the ground in Ukraine. I’m sure the situation on the ground is anything but calm, but the zoomed out version shows no movement.
Remember we don’t know what “BTG” is real strength
While the size of these BTGs is not defined, we can get a general idea of their concentration. Out of a total of 120 in the country, an estimated 22 are around Kherson, 27 between the east bank of the Dnipro River and Melitopol, and 17 south of Zaporozhye and southern Donbas. That is, almost half of Russia’s forces are in the south. Only 17-20 remain around Izyum, which once hosted around 35-40 BTGs. Interestingly, Defmon only estimates 13-15 BTGs around the city of Donetsk, as that’s where Russia is currently pushing hard.
