That would be the job of taking down a tyrannical, frankly illegitimate US goobermint. The real question, though, is: why on earth would they bother?
WHY RUSSIA WILL DEFEAT THE UNITED STATES
Like many boys in the 1980s, I dreamed of being a “Wolverine.” If you hail from Generation X or you are a late-stage Millennial, you know that is not a reference to a Marvel superhero with retractable metal claws. It is a reference to the teenaged freedom fighters in the movie Red Dawn. Raised on a steady diet of American patriotic zeal and a hatred for communism, boys my age fantasized of killing Russian invaders. Those days are long gone. The United States is no longer the “good guy,” and Russia is no longer the “bad guy.” We are the Marxists, now.
If we go to war with Russia, which I suspect will likely happen, Russia will win. The reason is simple: ideologies never defeat national identity. This has been true throughout time. Whenever an ideological army attempted to conquer a defined people, the defined people have always won. Even within the ideological proxy wars of the 20th Century, fighting was defined as contests between peoples. Communist North Vietnam framed its war with South Vietnam as one in which Vietnamese patriots fought European-American imperialism and manipulation. The Soviet Union was trounced in the early years of World War II for a multitude of reasons, but one of those reasons was that early propaganda tried to frame the struggle as one between fascism and communism. Soviet peasants could care less about the global proletariat. When the political messaging was re-framed within the context of a “Great Patriotic War,” Russians galvanized and hardened their resolve. Many such examples exist.
Today, there is no American people. The United States has been intentionally redefined. American identity is rooted in post-nationalism. It is ideologically globalist, combining the totality of the economic coin – Marxist on one side, free market capitalist on the other. In so doing, American political and cultural leaders have created an ideology that supplants God with Cultural Marxist societal elements – from homosexuality and transgenderism to subjectivity versus objectivity in all facets of decision making (e.g., “Common Core” math). Simultaneously, free market capitalism has been weaponized as a democratization process, creating a world of consumers addicted to cheap trinkets and material comforts that transcends sacrifice for one’s national best interests. This is evident from outsourcing manufacturing to the importation of cheap labor en masse. The United States that you once knew is dead. The guardians of this new American dystopia – the DOJ, FBI, IRS, and DOD – will target those who question the paradigm shift. Consequently, J6 protestors are hunted with impunity while the antifa – i.e., those who fight most violently for this new ideological state – are protected from prosecution.
Russia, generally speaking, has none of these problems. Russians know they are Russian. Russians are not seeking a globalist new world order. Russians prefer a world order led by Russians, but in the absence of that power, they would be happy to have a regional hegemony that protects Russian interests. In other words, unlike the globalist ideologues that lead Americans and their Western allies, Russians are nationalists. In a war, you need nationalism to win. If you think I am wrong, consider the U.S. military’s current struggles to recruit. It dovetails with a drop in patriotism. It turns out that the U.S. DOD never realized that transgender black dancers with a victim mentality do not volunteer to fight for a country they perceive to have oppressed them; misguided patriotic Southern White boys do – and less of them now want to be part of it. Putin’s military leadership enjoys no such confusion.
The US military having been reduced to a mincing, dress-clad paper tiger of indeterminate gender thanks to Woke leadership, I have little to no doubt the Rooskies could defeat it handily, all else being equal and assuming the Ukrainiain thorn had been removed from the Bear’s paw. But the US domestic political situation being what it now is, the bond between Heritage Americans and the US military is nothing like as strong as it once was, always a seriously bad omen for any nation’s defensive prospects.
On the other hand, the occupation phase is liable to be a stone bitch, I imagine, a fact I’m confident the Russian leadership is every bit as cognizant of as I am myself. On the other other hand, the Left has trashed this place so comprehensively, over so long a period, one has to wonder what Russia would really gain from such a chancy move. In sum, they probably COULD do it, sure. Which doesn’t mean they SHOULD.
I have to say, I can’t wait to see what Aesop’s take on this speculative proposal might be.
Not only do you have no idea what our military is capable of, just get rid of the current “leadership”, you have some way overinflated idea of what the conscripts that make up the Russian army are capable of.
Any day now the russians will finish off the ukranians in record time*. And they don’t even have to move half way around the earth with men, materials, and resupply. Quite a feat.
Any day now!
*Sure, the russians can defeat the Ukrainians. After all, the russians, weak as they are, are the 2nd most capable behind the US. The Ukrainians? Not even in the top 20.
The US military budget is nearly 20 times that of the russians. The USA can and has moved forces around the world and resupply them indefinitely, when other countries have no means of moving crap. That includes the fucking pos russians.
By the way, for the uninformed, one of the problems with the draft was always the unprofessional nature of the drafted. It is one of the reasons it was ended and never restarted.
400,000 is the number of russian conscripts in any given year. They serve for, get this, one year. In a million man military, 40% are conscripts with less than one year of training. American military are still training after a year, and they desire to be there.
I have two in the military and they both say 80% plus are it’s only a job folks. Russia has islam problems. NOBODY will nuke our farm land. But a lot of people would like to have it. Davos WEF would like it out of production to starve the world into their guidestone numbers.
God is going to act soon IMHO
The Army officers are 71% white. Blacks make up 11% of the officer group, in proportion to their population percentage. In the enlisted group blacks make up 21%, a bit higher than their population percentage.
I don’t doubt that quite a few enlisted are there because it’s a job, but no way is it near 80% IMO.
In any event, it matters not what the enlisted will do. It matters what the officers will do. Will they carry out the illegal / immoral orders? How many will? 100% of the captains I currently know (two, Army/Navy) would not. None of the brass I have known in my life, a considerable number, would do so.
44% of Military recruits are from the South. The South has 36% of the national population. If you believe 80% of Southerners are going to war with their kin you’re smoking some powerful stuff. And the South is where the war will have to be fought if they wish to subjugate this country.
You can file all this bullshit in the same place the “end of the world” claims go. They are constant and always wrong.
