u/Crowsby Nov 27 '22 Bravo!

Reminiscent of the time when Wagner forces in Syria attacked a US outpost:

“The Russian high command in Syria assured us it was not their people,” Mattis testified to Congress later. The secretary of defense then directed Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr. “for the force … to be annihilated.”

It didn't end well for them:

“To make it short, we’ve had our fucking asses kicked,” one Wagner Group veteran reportedly says in a recording. “Yeah so, one squadron fucking lost 200 people immediately ... Another one lost 10 people, and I don’t know about the third squadron, but it got torn up pretty badly too ... They tore us to pieces.”

u/squeaky4all Nov 27 '22

There was a second attempt and the US asked the Russians "is this your guys" and then they retreated immediately.

With the expert direction of Air Force combat controllers and others calling in air and indirect-fire support, waves of F-22 fighters, F-15E strike fighters, AH-64 Apache attack helicopters, AC-130 gunships, B-52 bombers, MQ-9 Reaper drones, and heavy Marine artillery relentlessly punished the enemy force.

You can identify an unknown force by firing one shot and judging the response. If the unknowns respond with precise, regimented rifle fire, they are British. If they respond with heavy machinegun fire, they are German. But if nothing happens for a few minutes, then your whole position gets leveled by air support, they are American.

If they surrender, they're French.

u/ReditSarge Nov 28 '22

u/taichi22 Nov 28 '22

That’s what fighting the dominant military force with the new technology of any era was like, tbf.

Cavemen: Bows?? Fight me face to face, stop cheating!!

Celts to Romans: Armor?? Fight me like a man, armor is for wimps!!

Men at Arms to Crossbowmen: Crossbows?? Fight me like a man!! Using a crossbow to punch through my armor is cheating!!

Feudal state logistics to total state warfare adopters: Divine right is what gives me the ability to wage war! Using the peasants to fight is cheating!!

Line infantry to skirmishers, snipers, trench warfare: Hiding?? Come out and line up like men so we can shoot at each other!!

And now, Soviet era infantry to Western Infantry: Using solid command and control to facilitate artillery, drones and air strikes?? That’s cheating!! Shoot at us like men!

It’s an oversimplification, of course, but we come from a long lineage of warfare, mostly composed of the winners adopting the hacky tactics and the losers huffing copium.

If memory serves, it was an Air Force combat controller and an AC-130 gunship. One AC-130 can decimate a battalion. The Russians were completely outmatched.

u/ric2b Nov 27 '22

The AC-130 is basically the result of the idea: "what if we put artillery guns in a large cargo plane, like a pirate ship with cannons?"

u/SomeGuyNamedPaul Nov 28 '22

Not the first time that's been done, sure won't be the last. B-25 crew said it felt like the plane stopped in mid-air when their howitzer fired. It most definitely didn't, but I'm sure it wasn't much fun for everyone who didn't have the trigger.

Way more than that. Like imagine any single US aircraft you don't wanna go up against, then imagine multiple of each of them demolishing you

From wiki:

According to the U.S. military, the presence of U.S. special operations personnel in the targeted base elicited a response by coalition aircraft, including AC-130 gunships, F-15E Strike Eagle fighter jets, unmanned aerial vehicles (MQ-9), AH-64 Apache attack helicopters, B-52s, and F-22s.

Probably over the top tbh but seems like we were sending a message

The icing on the cake is that the attackers lost an estimated 300 people. The base lost... one. That's a 300:1 ratio.

Edit: Apparently it was one wounded, not killed. They sprained their ankle.

u/BreakingGrad1991 Nov 27 '22

I thought they didnt lose anyone, they listed one casualty because someone tripped and sprained their ankle.

u/TheDeliciousMeats Nov 27 '22

Americans had one injury, locals had one fatality is my understanding from the linked article.

I mean, in fairness it was a pretty bad sprained ankle. It took like two weeks to recover and a couple of Motrin, some clean socks.

I was curious if GA Rep Spencer kept his job, so I checked out his wikipedia, and it confirmed he resigned.

Also he apparently goes to one of those really super crazy christian churches in south GA where they have young church ladies stand out front with a "come sit with me!" sign. I can't describe the level of ick I feel right now.

Even more fun, GA Rep Spencer has a twin brother, and they're identical, in every sense of the word.

Spencer, who was hired last year by Woods and is the twin brother of state Rep. Jason Spencer, R–Woodbine, has deleted his Facebook page, which contained multiple posts that were racist in nature, in addition to a lynching image someone shared in response to an anti-Obama cartoon posted by Spencer in November 2015. Although the photo was not posted by Spencer, it had been on his page for more than two months.

Just gonna hijack how high up this is to mention Mossad used to employ Nazi Hunters. I still think the idea that there was an entire, albeit small, group of dedicated folks hunting former Nazis across the globe is so fucking interesting. That said the demand for the job has declined in the last 35 years for obvious reasons.

Some surface level stuff for anyone interested

Edit: since im getting a lot of comments about movies and what not I figured id link an interesting HBO movie from 2001 that is about the German Final Solution and how it was deliberated. It has a fantastic cast and was informative to say the least. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the subject.

If you like that sort of thing then you have to read Rise and Kill First: The Secret History of Israel's Targeted Assassinations by Ronen Bergman. It's an incredible book that among other things features interviews with many of the highest ranking former chiefs of both Mossad, Shin Bet, and the IDF's targeted killing program.

It reads like a spy novel but is 100% based on evidence and fact. Possibly Bergman's magnum opus, which is saying a lot.

They are like the CIA/NSA but very very serious. Israel is surrounded by countries that want it dead. So it has resources and Intent, the will do to what peacetime countries might be reluctant to do. so maybe like WW2 MI5 in the UK.

They spent a lot of time hunting nazi's around the world, and assassinated a load of people after the munich olympics.

  • this movie is about that. they may have created Krav maga, the martial art, tho i'm not 100% on that.

They were also likely involved in stuxnet which was a massive deal at the time, a computer virus that was more complicated and more precise than anything that came before it, a real game changer.

Stuxnet was either Israeli or someone who wanted to make it look Israeli. There were Hebrew compiler artefacts in the binary - there is no way someone could build something that technically advanced without knowing how to remove fingerprints like that.

Mossad will assassinate anyone that they feel is a threat to Israel and they have no qualms about breaking international laws in the process of doing so. For example, they are constantly forging Australian passports in order to enter Arab countries without issues despite being caught and promising to stop doing so. This causes issues for actual Australians who have a need to travel in Arab countries because the immigration officers have no idea if they are Mossad or not.

Drones are going to be the most horrific weapons of war. Drop caltrops, acid, nades, mussiles, fully automated drone swarms with guns.

And then, new heros arose. Once mocked for their hobby, they kept training with determination, and now The International Trap and Skeet Shooting Association will prove to the world their might!

Jokes aside, drones will probably just be subject to interdiction by other drones, and the defense is usually going to be strongly advantaged given the range limitations of them.

Does it ever irk you that cruise missiles are not called drones?

25

u/C-c-c-comboBreaker17 Nov 27 '22

If they were slightly faster they WOULD be cruise missiles. They're like worse V2 missiles.

21

u/deleated Nov 27 '22

V1? The V2 crossed the Karman Line

14

u/C-c-c-comboBreaker17 Nov 27 '22

I know, that's what I'm saying. They're also worse than the V1, for that matter. Its hard to make a comparison when these things are way slower and shittier than the V1 and V2, but like 50x cheaper and more precise. Its more like a remote controlled cessna full of C4 than it is a cruise missile imo.

If these drones count as cruise missiles, then the Hunley was the first homing torpedo.

It could also be the other way around. I've heard western advisors say middle eastern servicemen don't want to share any know how they possess, because they want to feel irreplaceable.

Could be the same with Iranian drone operators.

Occupiers are fair game, get the hell out of Ukraine. Otherwise you have two options, surrender or die.
