Irony is lost on the GOP. Jim Jordan attempts to weaponize the federal government.

Harrowing piece I read a couple of nights ago about what's happening in Ukraine, and specifically about a city of a half million people in southern Ukraine 75 miles east of Odessa called Kherson.

The article, Inside the City of the Damned: What's Going On in Putin Occupied Kherson Has Been Hidden From the World begins:

"A cloud of thick smoke hangs over the occupied city of Kherson in Ukraine. Its very stench is evidence of Russian war crimes, on a scale almost too sickening to contemplate.

The smoke comes from mobile incinerators that are running night and day. Vladimir Putin's paranoid soldiers are burning the corpses of Ukrainian citizens tortured and murdered on suspicion of helping the resistance."

And from later in the piece:

Even working 24-hours-a-day, the incinerators might not be able to dispose of all the dead. When the Russians retreated from the town of Bucha in April, a mass grave of hundreds of bodies was discovered. Many of the dead had their hands bound behind their backs, and scores had been tortured.

Not all the victims of civilian slaughter were buried. Troops left hundreds more strewn in the streets. Photographs of the carnage provoked a worldwide outcry. But even those hideous scenes could not compare with the aftermath of the destruction of Mariupol in March. Satellite photographs showed trenches that could conceal an estimated 9,000 bodies. Witnesses said the dead were buried in layers, across an area the size of three football pitches.

When Kherson is finally liberated, who knows what fresh horrors we will uncover.

However the Russians try to disguise it, this is mass murder of civilians on a scale not seen in Europe since World War II.

    Unfortunately we knew this was coming up. It's a civil war created by an external dictatorship. Putin is losing, therefore he'll do "whatever is necessary." He's already killed at least 2 of his general officers, and it's starting to look like the battle of Stalingrad. People with guns that will shoot cowards and deserters.

    Next step for Putin is Chemical/ biological weapons.

    Libertarian-ish GOPs and libertarians on the progressive side, like Tulsi, and on the conservative side, are getting itchy to let the Russia-Ukraine thing go its own way, but not pb.

    The argument is that we're making Ukraine the next Afghanistan.

    pb will say this: He thinks that financing the Ukrainian resistance to Putin's insanity is an investment in restraining the expansion of evil.

    AND, pb's consistent. He's one of a small minority who supported maintaining a presence in Afghanistan...for the same reason.

    Yeah, pb!!!!!

    I think all three of us have been. I think it's a little strange, considering how politically different we are. But therein lies the quandary. What do we do, and how do we do it. It's pretty apparent we're all standing firm on this.

    And Putin is working his way in to his demise. Almost like when Hitler chose to take on both the east and west fronts. He does have a lot of "reserves," but how well are they going to fight? Again, I would be shocked if he didn't start using chemicals sooner than later. What's the world going to do? The US is a paper tigre, Europe needs his gas, China isn't going to get into it (except to perhaps start a two front war or not with NATO/SEATO).

    No doubt, we all agree with helping Ukraine defeat Putin's military.

    He does have kind of an Ace on his side. He used something call trichothecene in SE Asia for a year or two. Extremely effective. In two days, the only thing left are bones. Those would be easier to burn and don't smell as bad. Then basically, you just use them as fertilizer. It's really a bad way to die, but death occurs within an hour or so. Horrible, horrible death.

    This just rolled across my desk. Thought a couple of you may be interested. My view is the unit isn't as bad off as they say it is. Their saying it took about 10%-15% of the unit. I won't be satisfied until it's 90+%. You've got to take the head of this snake. That's the only way to do it. The heads will keep doing this until they're dead. We found that out in the Balkins. I do want the SR NCOs and Officers. I want the Ukrainians to have the trial for them and let them decide what to do with them. I think that's the least we could do.

    Russian Units Linked to Bucha War Crimes Likely 'Destroyed in Combat'

    Russian units linked to the killing of civilians in the Ukrainian town of Bucha in the Kyiv region have likely been "destroyed in combat," a U.S.–based think tank said in an assessment on Friday.

    The Institute for the Study of War (ISW), citing a report by Radio Free Europe/ Radio Liberty (RFE/FL), assessed that Russia's 64th Separate Guards Motor Rifle Brigade (64th SGMRB) of the 35th Combined Arms Army has likely been destroyed, possibly as "part of an intentional Kremlin effort to conceal the war crimes it committed in Kyiv Oblast."

    The think tank cited an investigation by RFE/FL into the brigade, which was conducted following alleged massacres in April in the suburbs of the Ukrainian capital Kyiv. The investigation found that after heavy fighting in the area between Izyum and Slovyansk the brigade has "largely ceased to exist."

    Out of 1,500 soldiers who were in the brigade before Russian President Vladimir Putin's war against Ukraine began on February 24, 200 to 300 troops were likely dead, ISW noted, citing the investigation conducted by RFE/FL investigative journalist Mark Krutov.

    I agree - good news, but 300 is just a start. Lots of mass murderers are still on the loose.

    It may be the russians are "saying" the unit is "disbanded." Please, for God's sake, watch for more. When you see mass killings and not mass graves, they're using Sarin, which is their favourite. What though, for the skeletons. That is bad.

  11. by oldedude on August 12, 2022 8:24 pm
    not What but Watch. Sorry.

    "Inhibitory effect of trichothecene mycotoxins on bovine platelets stimulated by platelet activating factor."

    Okay everyone. Parental guidance is suggested. Isle, turn the page. trichothecene is sprayed usually with a coughing agent to enhance the intake of the suggested chemical (trichothecene in this case). So you cough a couple of times. Then you cough up (literally) your lungs. As the chemical moves down, you shit out your intestines, and puke out your stomach, because they are all liquid at this point. This process lasts 1.5 hours (est).
    Isle wants me dead by this, but I pray no one ever experiences the chemical/ biologic.
    Russia has done field work and is ready to deploy it. The interesting thing is that in 24 hours, it's inert. Completely. Welcome to the new world you want.
