Comment on A One Ton WW2 Air Bomb Has Been Detonated near Novgorod by p51d007 http://englishrussia.com/2018/10/08/a-one-ton-ww2-air-bomb-has-been-detonated-near-novgorod/#comment-9665070 Tue, 09 Oct 2018 16:17:41 +0000 http://englishrussia.com/?p=172220#comment-9665070 I remember back in the 60’s & 70’s photos all over Europe of farmers digging up old WW2 bombs. It was so common, they would stack them along the edge of the road and someone would come along and pick them up. Even today, they will find one or two here & there. Just think of how unstable they are after 70+ years in the ground.

This is the L2 or “Stabo” type (Stachelbombe – Spike Bomb) the long nose spike was to insure explosion above the ground instead of penetrating like common types. This was probably for anti-personnel use rather like an air burst artillery shell. In 2017 an SC250 was found in Minsk and another in Ternopil, Ukraine. 100 years from now, they will still be digging up and defusing WW II bombs.

The title is a bit “bad” at wording, but still:

“According to experts, after reaching full capacity, the platform will be the largest in the world by the volume of hydrocarbons produced per year.” – thus shall we it’s *production capacity per year* is the “biggest” (largest).

Russian bureaucrats love to impose fines for the slightest infraction. Its in their culture.

Even fake cops set up check points on the roads and fine drivers….that’s how they make their living. Russia is corrupt beyond belief. Russki people are good overall but its sad that they have to live in that mess.

We will have a world that your contribution as a soldier has helped to bring about when future generations have grown enough to agree that no human will harm another human, no matter what. But can we teach our kids to become peaceful life loving people if we also teach them that violence is ok under certain circumstances. Then who will teach them what represents an enemy. Who’s beliefs will infect them.
Horse soldier I am sorry for my impossibly idealogical view, but it is my view and the way I live my life. I am also sorry for my deliberately inflammatory first comment about military, somedays I feel frustration and I just blame whatever.

Like most soldiers, I hate war. I accept that it is sometimes a necessary evil, but it is not something any thinking soldier enjoys. After all, who is it who suffers the most in a war. Soldiers. Yes, everyone who is affected suffers, but let us be honest, soldiers are always the most affected.

I suspect that many people will agree, at one level, or another, if they just listen to others with an open mind, and are willing to discuss with civility the differences they may have.

I also agree with you that most governments are heavily populated by wolves, and when the wolf holds the leash of the sheepdog, all of society has a problem. Wolves are very adept at lying, and making themselves look like the good guy. The problem, as I see it is that the sheep are far too often easily swayed by emotional stories, rather than facts. The modern (western) world has become so mislead by emotional fairy tales, and many “feel good” lies, that they are now willing to believe in so much that just isn’t so. They no longer listen to their own intelligence, reason, and logic, nor do most of them seem willing to go do a little research to determine the validity of an argument.

As to a future world war, or civil war in the U.S., I fear you are all to correct on both counts. Not that they will necessarily occur, but that they are increasingly likely, and worst, there are many wolves who see it as advantageous to them to foment such catastrophes.

If more people would look at the real world, not the world as someone else wants them to see it, and set aside their false outrage, the core of the Enlightenment, Reason, Logic, Facts, and Truth, would again begins to win out.

We can only hope that such will occur, and when those who believe in those things encourage others to begin to use their own intelligence, etc to look at the world, perhaps we can step away from the precipice.

They can’t see why they are hated – Americans cannot ignore what their government does abroad
https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2001/sep/13/september11.britainand911

Here’s a short excerpt …
**************************

It is this record of unabashed national egotism and arrogance that drives anti-Americanism among swaths of the world’s population, for whom there is little democracy in the current distribution of global wealth and power. If it turns out that Tuesday’s attacks were the work of Osama bin Laden’s supporters, the sense that the Americans are once again reaping a dragons’ teeth harvest they themselves sowed will be overwhelming.

It was the Americans, after all, who poured resources into the 1980s war against the Soviet-backed regime in Kabul, at a time when girls could go to school and women to work. Bin Laden and his mojahedin were armed and trained by the CIA and MI6, as Afghanistan was turned into a wasteland and its communist leader Najibullah left hanging from a Kabul lamp post with his genitals stuffed in his mouth.

But by then Bin Laden had turned against his American sponsors, while US-sponsored Pakistani intelligence had spawned the grotesque Taliban now protecting him. To punish its wayward Afghan offspring, the US subsequently forced through a sanctions regime which has helped push 4 million to the brink of starvation, according to the latest UN figures, while Afghan refugees fan out across the world.

**************************

What else is there to say? American/British warmongers are the last people on the planet to learn from their own mistakes. Nothing will change as long as western populations continue to tolerate dangerous criminals in their country’s governments and their associated 3-letter agencies.

I think you are right (how is that possible, people on the internet that agree!) in saying that there will always be a need for the sheepdog, and I am grateful that there are people that feel the need to protect and will give their lives in doing so.

But (and here comes the but), I am afraid that in our current (US influenced, I’m European myself) society the herdsmen whistling at the sheepdog are not doing so to protect the flock but to appease the wolves meanwhile lining their own pockets.
I think there is something fundamentally flawed in the way governments ‘protect’ their subjects. Pushing the sheep in their corners making them have to choose which side they are on, telling them the other sheep are the enemy and making them wolves in the process.

All analogies aside, since the invention of fire the human world has been a violent one, and I think you are right in saying today is the most peaceful period we have ever lived in. But evil has never been this powerful and I fear that if we are not heading for a new World War, there will be a crippling Civil War in the US in the near future, destabilizing the entire western world with it.

Puma/Cougar/Mountain-Lion and Jaguar are New World cats which do not naturally occur in Eurasia. This Puma certainly didn’t belong where it was found. I wonder what sort of people illegally import such animals and then dump them in the wild? Idiots!

As everywhere else in the world, the largest free roaming cat population in Russia are feral domestic cats which cause great harm to birds, lizards, amphibians and of course small rodents like mice, squirrels etc. But there are also naturally occurring wildcats, lynx and even a few carefully monitored, counted and guarded leopards and tigers.

I understand the point you are making, but those weapons exist precisely because of the world we live in. Eliminating militaries will not resolve that.
Humans are, by their very nature capable of violence. The most base human trait is survival. If someone, or something threatens that survival, most humans will respond defensively. Some humans over react, but that is more because they are ignorant of what is appropriate, than what is human.
I am, as you may have surmised, a former professional soldier. I have never initiated violence against anyone, or anything. I have however, responded to provocation from threats. I have been trained, and exercised to respond, but not over react. All response must be measured by what is appropriate to the threat.
You suggest humans need to evolve. I would argue that we have. Perhaps not in the way you think we should have, but violence is far less prevalent in the modern world, than in the past. Yes, when violence breaks out, it can be very terrible, but it doesn’t happen nearly as often as in the past. Can we do better? Certainly. Should we continue to strive to do better? Absolutely! Much of the violence you know of, is only known because of media covering it, not because there is more of it.
My question to you is simply this. When an evil person, or a tyrant attacks you, should you simply allow them to do so? Or Should you defend yourself, and protect those around you who can not protect themselves. I would suggest that an honorable human defends themselves, and others from evil.

That may require violence, but only proportional violence, not gratuitous violence, lest one become the very evil they fight.

The world is made up of three types of people. The vast majority of whom are, for lack of a better term, sheep. They go along, to get along, they just want to graze the grass in peace, raise their children, and live, and let live. The next largest group are what I call wolves. They are inherently evil, selfish, and harmful to society. They will engage in any activity to accomplish their goals. The third, and smallest group are sheepdogs. We are the people who spend our lives protecting the sheep from the wolves. We are often disliked, because we encourage the sheep to do the right thing, even if it isn’t popular, or fun. We are often demonized by both the sheep, and the wolves, because we stand on the wall, sentinel, to protect the sheep, and stop the wolves.

Worry more about the wolves, than the sheepdog.

Humans that you can hurt and almost kill just with words. Try calling one of them stupid and watch them get insulted, become angry, defensive and ready to use violence. That is when they need guns and missiles to kill all the people who think they are stupid.
We need to evolve, do you want your kids and grand kids to have a world to live in.
Military, any military, is the ultimate form of ignorance.

Also i have to mention that in the media here where i live there is never a day without mention something negative about Russia or any other as such declared enemies of the US. The international sections of the media are full of Trump and full of Putin and all are negative in any sense… it is simply propaganda and outright warmongering in the name of freedom and democracy. Those people who believe in such concepts as socialism, peace and empathy are enemies as well… these people are being ridiculed and criminalised… this my point of view.

As said, no Cuban has caused so much damage to the Cuban population, as the hostile (and failed) US policies have. Thanks again for your confirmation.

If the Chinese are half as determined as the beleagered Cubans, the Orange Trump really doesn’t know what’s in store for him (and for his already dependent and indebted “dominance” economy). IMHO, both sides will suffer the same, but the rest of the world doesn’t deserve the damaging results of this economic conflict. But some changes can be good… We’re living in another very interesting era. And it’s just starting.

Comment on 36 New Weird Photos from Russia by jon spencer http://englishrussia.com/2018/09/24/36-new-weird-photos-from-russia/#comment-9664726 Wed, 26 Sep 2018 00:45:32 +0000 http://englishrussia.com/?p=171807#comment-9664726 That little wrench is probably from what is called a “ignition set”.
These small wrench’s were used to work on the points and rotors back before electronic ignitions and in other tight spaces.
They can come in sizes from 2mm to 11mm with reduced length.
Many times on the open end wrenches they heads will be angled instead of inline with the handle too.
You really don’t need a big wrench on a 2mm nut or bolt head.
