I wish I could fight for my country against invaders with a clear conscience and knowing I'm doing the right thing. I would make my family proud and make sure that they are safe.

I've got a distant relative in Ukraine who's civilian (he's over 60 so he won't be mobilised), who's going to fight if invaders are taking his town and teaching his wife how to use a rifle. He says nothing about pride and a lot about how he never wished anything like this.

>>140948 I hope he will make it out alive. But I'm sure it must be satisfying to fight to defend your territory and not the interests of crooked politicians. Just defending your territory. It's the most noble thing there is.

>>140949 I hope that too. I can see why you find it noble and satysfying, but I'm almost sure if you (or me) would be in such a situation satisfaction and nobility would be the last thing we care about. It's quite sad though that we cannot find satisfaction in our ordinary lifes... Makes you think, if all this social evolution and civilization a good thing after all.

I have a question for German bernds. Is that true that a civilian can't enroll a military university to become a Bundeswehr officer? I.e. you have to enlist as private, serve some years as a grunt, may be get an NCO rank, and only then you'd be suitable for becoming an officer candidate?
Russia Bernd 2022-02-13 12:26:56 ⋅ 3mn No. 136292
>>136289 Nope, they too have a separate officers school. >It all starts at the recruits’ first call-up, where soldiers are tested to gauge their abilities and determine their best placement. Those who do well on these tests can move on to officers’ course. ... Once cadets are accepted to the course, the real work begins. The officers course takes place at the IDF Officers Training School, or Bahad 1, which is in Mitzpe Ramon, in southern Israel.

>>136273 Universal military service is historically a bit of a fluke too. In Europe it hasn't been a thing since old Roman Republic days until Napoleon decided to just flood the rest of Europe with grunts. Imperial armies were pros and foreign auxiliaries, high medieval armies were special military class, and early modern armies (as well as medieval Italian armies) were mercenary bands.

>>136312 The Roman Republic didn't have universal mili service, they conscripted only those nibbas whomth they thought were the best suited for service
Slovenia Bernd 2022-02-14 17:29:28 ⋅ 3mn No. 136588
>>136584 Well you get what I mean, in pre-Marian system every single Roman citizen was conscriptable at politicians' will. But there was no mandatory boot camp. You only received training when a campaign was actually called. So in times of peace you could avoid conscription. Now in say Athens, however, everyone had 2 years of military training.

Some of them might be quite rare or non existant on the open internet. Pics related a T-55 with fake Iron cross to mimick a German Leopard I/II tank. Legend has it that that was enough to make Chetniks withdraw at that location in panic because they thought German army is intervening, when of course in reality outside of Serbian propagada Germans weren't even part of the conflict.

>>134885 It was a symbol that Croatia had the will and the means to resist the Serbo-Yugoslavian Army occupation plans. The vehicle was made by the company "Dalmacija" near Split and was a bit later in the war destroyed in the Zadar region. The same factory also made the HOT-011 and HOT-111 armoured vehicles in autumn of 1991.

Russia soon stronk? How significant is a new trade route like this? Will this have any geopolitical implications considering balance of power? Route from China to Rotterdam for example goes down from 48 hours -> 19 hours (says in linked video), a huge reduction. Any Russian posters here know about the subject? (don't know how reliable source, just found it on google)

>>133011 Interesting point of view, do you mean it will be open for a short while because of the climate in the area or what is the reasoning for it to be closed down? In the video they talk about the area melting and making it possible for ships to move without icebreakers tagging along. >indonesian geopolitical advantage I am not aware of this, interesting. What I was thinking about is that if this would cause a significant change to the global trade routes and challenge some of the current winners, since this would open up new routes for example for both China and Russia to Europe. And if the route is shorter, it should lower shipping costs according to my logic. A broad subject that I am not very familiar with. Here is another link of the subject for interest:

>>133014 >In the video they talk about the area melting and making it possible for ships to move without icebreakers tagging along. I didn't watch the video but you need to consider that at this point, the passage is transversible for a short while on years with lowest ice extent. And every winter it regrows all the way to Kola, and down through the Bering strait on other side. And then you also have floating ice which spreads way way further than the nominal "sea ice extent" that can fuck you up.

>>133014 Regarding Indonesia; Indonesia has a crazy strong position, massive growth potential, and isn't stagnating unlike most comparable countries (e.g. Brazil). Plus, they're on the equator, that's the best position for launching shit into space. They're in shape good enough that they could project a new capital somewhere in Borneo. And then there's massive mineral wealth they can get from Papua. Which is already getting quite nasty, with big mining moving in and natives making a fuss about it. But most importantly, Malays have been a trade superpower before; there's also a Chinese diaspora that might come in play with taking over and moving stuff out of China in the future possibly, and their location is right on the main global shipping route. If they can start homegrowing their elite (or perhaps, if their growing power starts to get Singapore gravitating their way, and they just de facto take over institutions already there), I can see them as a potential future superpower.
