Oh Putin invaded Ukraine and Georgia eh? Why not just take the whole fucking countries while he's at it-it'd take him less than a week to do so, with both countries at the same time.
The eastern part of what is now Ukraine has never, ever, at any time, belonged to the state of Ukraine, nor were these ever part of Ukraine enclave. Ukraine, as a state, has never existed until 1991. The actual Ukraine state itself, is historically at least twice smaller than what it is today. The western part (Lviv), the entirely eastern part bordering Russia, and the south (Crimea, Odessa) have never ever been considered part of state Ukraine.
Keep drinking kool-aid.
So basically the wars these days boil down to who can mass more drones, as if it were a zerg rush in Starcraft? Aren't anti-air missiles supposed to be way cheaper than drones to manufacture and use?
I don't want to derail the topic too much, but Putin's depravity must be stated here because it's relevant for this conflict. Those countries were supposed to be Russia's allies. Is that how you treat your allies? By grabbing their territory? That's surely a wonderful enticement for everyone else to embrace the "friendly" hug of the bear. Should France snatch Louisiana, following your logic? After all, that's what allies are here for, to fuck each other over.
Putin's fanboys can't seem to realize that Russia doesn't have allies, only hostages. They grab territories, fund color revolutions or the corrupt authorities just like the CIA does, and they blackmail countries by threatening to cut off their gas in winter. That's just the tip of the iceberg. Look up Pridnestrovie and so on.
Every single country that wanted to be friends with Russia ended up getting shat on. Russian foreign policy is based solely on its narrow economic and militaristic interests, they are not protectors of Christians nor do they fight for any higher values. That's not a strange fact nor an exception, but for some reason, Putin's fanboys cannot grasp this simple fact because they desperately want to believe in the cool big daddy who bravely stands up to Western clown world.
If you actually want to praise a country that's an example of traditionalism, shed all your wet dreams about Russia and focus your gaze on Poland. The Poles would never build Europe's biggest mosque in their capital (like Putin did) and I honestly doubt they would condone the massacre of Christians, like Putin does.
Armenians were completely unprepared for drones. Note that these aren't even the newest in drone technology.. Even though Israel has been selling shitloads of these pests to Azeris, they always keep grade A technology for themselves and sell old stuff from the warehouse. Turkish Bayraktar drones, which are being supplied to Azeris in almost unlimited quantities, are ancient technology.
There are systems against drones, even Russia has some, but no one seems to be willing to sell it to the Armenians. The worst thing about drones is that they prevent any possibility of a serious Armenian counter-attack, their air supremacy simply doesn't allow Armenians to group forces. As soon as they do, they are mowed down by drones. The only hope for Armenians is to stand their ground in the mountains and lose as little territory as possible until winter arrives. Winter will slow down the Azeri advance. They have no hope whatsoever of ever reconquering the territories that Azeris will capture in the process, they can only play the game of attrition and hope that the human cost will, hopefully, become too high for the dictator Aliyev.
As you can see, the flat southern half of Artsakh by the Iranian border is almost completely under Azeri control now, it is a matter of days until they reach the border of Armenia proper. That territory is indefensible and Artsakh has lost the border with Iran. Armenians can only hold the lines in the mountains where they're dug in.
Armenia has started to build kamikaze drones according to some military sources.
Before to make them operational , they might buy Chinese or Iranian drones in order to keep competing with Azeris on the battleground.
Daily reminder that the Armenian military has still not engaged the Azeris
And some here expect Russia to come in and save the day, at huge geopolitical expenses. It is just not realistic
* Azeri drones have knocked out S300 air defenses in Armenia proper. These S300 did not engage the incoming drones
The President of Armenia, Soros' lapdog Pasinyan, is sabotaging the Armenian defenses from within. Armenian forces are not engaging the Azeris even when attacked within Armenian territory.
But wouldn't the soldiers manning the air defense fire anyways, regardless of their orders, rather than just sit and be killed? Or was the SAM site emptied and all personnel withdrawn?
