    To wit: in 2022, the US gave Ukraine $113B of aid. By contrast, Russia's 2023 budget for its entire military is supposedly ~$80B, and that is much higher than usual.

So we lean on the courts/rule of law and complicated military equipment when a confident, self-reliant character rooted in cultural and historical norms and simple military arms that function reliably in challenging conditions would more than suffice.
    Vox Day put it like this: "The US has WWII Germany's problem on steroids". There is simply no way the US is winning an extended conflict with a Russia/China axis. The US's only shot is a spectacular shock-and-awe campaign so front-loaded that basically nothing is saved for Plan B, except perhaps nukes. The fact that it's openly provoking such a conflict highlights the utter insanity of our "leaders".

    My theory on the stupid balloon: It's just like Russian "hacking". The shit probably happens all the time, is taken care of (or not), and kept private. They obviously want you to get your panties in a twist over China, so maybe the best way to react is not to get your panties in a twist over China. As if we don't fly all kinds of garbage over their airspace. I don't think it takes a genius to see that this a propaganda driven event. What the fuck does China need a balloon for when they have thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of spies embedded in our institution? I mean, come the fuck on.

    What are we trying to win? I mean, I don't need anything from the Chinese, do you? I ain't got no beef with the Russians either. What are they wanting? More space around the bear's cave? Can't blame 'em. They got shit geography. Seems to me all "our goals" over there are really someone else's goals.

    Our real problems are much closer to home.

    State of the Union address tonight; either they shellacked the wrinkles on FJB's forehead, or that's a double with an old man mask. Usually when he lies, the wrinkles climb up to his scalp.

    I made it through around 5 minutes and shut that shit off. Just wanted to see what the propaganda machine was churning out today.

    But what is the real lesson here?
    Voter fraud has consequences?
    Border states now have enough illegal aliens to democratically secede from the US and become part of Mexico?
    The US is unable to fight or win a war on foreign soil, if it can't first regain control of the territory within its own borders?

    And the large "farms" the CCP is allowed to own adjacent to major military installations.
