Rules of Warfare, 21st century edition
« on: February 01, 2023, 05:47:09 am »
This is a work in progress, feel free to add relevant bits.

1.  Never interrupt Americans, because they WILL get in a land war in Asia.
2.  Never outnumber Ukrainians.
3.  See that Yemeni shitting into the commander's hatch of your shiny M1A2?  That's as close as you're gonna get to an offer of armistice.
4.  Human wave attacks aren't what they used to be.
5.  Everything you spent the last century learning about war is now wrong.
6.  It's not about the money now.  Now it's about spite and ancient butthurt on the part of anyone.
7.  Never tell an Armenian or an Azerbajani to be patient.
8.  Never assume that Chechnya is on anyone's side.  Even their own.
9.  Weapons are not made for wars, wars are made for weapons.
10.  Scholz is a punk.

More to follow.

The "Foreign Legion" is always a propaganda op. No exceptions.

Establishing friendly trade relations with a former enemy or potential adversary doesn't put you in a position to exert a positive influence; it makes you more vulnerable.  It's like having kids because you think it will save the marriage.

The shredder bin is full of indispensable trade contracts.

Never start a proxy war with yourself as the proxy.
