Syria Thread - Iranian Backed Edition Bernd 02/22/2024 (Thu) 21:33 [Preview] No. 51681 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Previous: >>50296

Nothing much going on in Syria anymore. Bit of ISIS I see on the map, and the SAA bombarding rebels on the north east. Beside that Israel is constantly attacking into Syria, targeting Iranian backed terrorists, and Iranian backed militias, and apparently Iranian militias themselves.
In Israel, the IDF still wrestling with some Iranian backed, dirty, barefeet, stone throwing kids since October... Where Yom Kippur and Six-Day Wars disappeared? Anyway. In Gaza they bombing Iranian backed Hamas, in Lebanon the Iranian backed Hezbollah. Sometimes they have a cease fire to release hostages as the Iranian backed Qatar negotiates it.
From Yemen, the Iranian backed Houthis raiding the shipping lanes with drones and whatnot.
In Ukraine the Iranian backed RAF/RuAf is on the attack. The initiative is theirs, AFU tries holding their trenches, forts, and foxholes. I heard couple of interesting things today, but would need some drawing and look up possible sources.

I found something. Well nothing that outright say a deal had happened. But a situation where we could hypothesize a deal happening.
Here's this CNN article:
https://edition.cnn.com/2024/03/09/politics/us-prepared-rigorously-potential-russian-nuclear-strike-ukraine/index.html
It's basically an advertisement for that book, The Return of Great Powers. Available on libgen, and I got it too. While the book is longer, but in that particular topic it basically writes the same as the article - I've only skimmed it so I overlooked lotsa details - I search Kherson and rolled through the pages. What I can tell that it polishes the rod of the US govt. and tells us that Putin and Co. are stupid so the US won against an inferior opponent, very impressive.

The story in short:
Kharkov offensive was a huge setback for the Russians, and when the Kherson offensive started they started to panic. Their worries was twofold:
1. they were scared losing Kherson;
2. they were scared that their troops will be steamrolled by the Ukrainians;
So this would have been a great debacle for them, and they were seriously considering to use of tactical nuke if both happened. They started to circulate Ukraine dirty bomb story in case they have to cover up a nuclear strike.
But heroic US diplomacy and secret services were vigilant. So they and Sholz went to Modi and Xi Jinping, and bullied them into going to Putin and pressure him not to use the nukes.
World Saved again by timely and resolute US intervention.

Now.
We can speculate that yes losing lots troops, equipment and key city was actually uncomfortable, and the use of nukes are kinda sorta are always on table, so these offensives could have triggered the use of them. So they could make a deal that they make Ukraine halt and give time for an orderly retreat, and Russia don't use nukes.
This doesn't sound very convincing, but rounds out the story above and offers something to negotiate with.

I have heard that but I don't know that I believe it. I think the most likely explanation was simply that both sides knew that a fight over Kherson would be bloody and miserable for them both.
The Russians were not going to lose their army but fighting in such conditions would have meant their army would be poorly supplied and that many Russian assets such as aviation and helicopters would have to be redirected to resupply the Russians over the river and also to provide air support for them. It could have ended in a situation where the Russian army was stuck in Kherson city, terribly supplied but on the other side the Ukrainians would have to fight in bloody urban combat against an enemy with their backs to the wall, all the while being hammered by Russian airpower and from Russian artillery on the other side of the river. It would be bad for both of them, and also bad for the city itself and the people living there. Most likely it would have ended with a permanent but poorly supplied Russian bridgehead located in Kherson city and then a permanent force of Ukrainians stationed around the city to keep them in check.

We need to learn from the Ukrainians who are fighting for their lives and their country.”
>the fact is that the conflict is witnessing a highly dynamic ‘war in the ether' unprecedented in its intensity
Electronic warfare is more important then ever. The real countermeasure against drones, and against anti-drone capabilities are these equipment.

“What Washington is proposing is, 'We [the U.S.] take a loan, Europe takes all the risk, you [Europe] pay the interest, and we [the U.S.] use the money for a U.S.-Ukraine fund,'” said one senior European diplomat. “We might be stupid but we’re not that stupid.”

Frankly this whole war is the USA beating the stinging nettle with someone else's dick. With Europe's and with Ukraine's.
Interesting tidbit:
>who legally will be liable to pay the loan back if Hungary [...] vetoes the prolongation of EU sanctions against the Kremlin, which legally have to be renewed every six months
Especially this part:
>have to be renewed every six months
The fun thing is that one day perhaps another EU country will veto it.
Another:
>While EU officials are receptive to these concerns, they’re reluctant to agree to something that comes at the expense of their own taxpayers.
This whole war is payed by EU taxpayers. And the money lands in the pockets of the US oil and military industry. This fucking war is a US money grabbing scheme for their economy is going down the shitter.

Previous one is autosäging.

Wanna watch The Longest Yard, the original Burt Reynolds movie.
I only see two remakes, the Mean Machine with Vinnie Jones, and the Adam Sandler comedy from 2005. Probably the only good Adam Sandler movie. It's greatest selling point is the catchy tunes played in the background and the supporting cast. Judging by the screenshots it follows the original story quite tightly. The Mean Machine is adapted to the circumstances of a Bri'is prison and normal football. It was entertaining too.
One more remake was made, and Egyptian one: Captain Masr in 2015. Not sure if it's available anywhere, or has any English dubs or subs. Also features normal football.

Watched the movie The Ambus/Al Kameen.
It's a recent (2021) war movie about an irl event, Emirati soldiers were ambushed by Yemeni rebels three years prior.
The scope is small. The story focuses on a handful of characters from a platoon, some other from a higher level formation, and a couple of rebels (eg. their chief and the sniper). Most of it plays in a canyon, they show bit from the camp, a corner here and there, and the command and control center.
The pace switches back and forth, the rapid chaos of the combat vs. the quiet conversations inside the MRAPs. The combat gradually escalates.
I don't think it is too realistic, but it tries to be. Equipment, weapons, and their use (I liked how the sniper was played out, the death was written poorly tho). The RPG should destroy an MRAP I think. While against tanks their value is not really in penetration (but apparently they can from certain angles).
The director is French so I'm not sure how the movie actually represents the Emirati view, or way of thinking.
The acting was not good, but passable, I've seen worse.
All in all it was cool-ish. More like a curiosity as an UAE movie, like Damascus Time (which is Iranian).

Thanks to the NEEToes, I had the luck to watch Westworld, the 1973 movie. Then I dl'd Futureworld which is a sequel to it. Watched it as well.
They are all right, immensely different from the telly show, for they were made in the 70s. Futureworld differs from Westworld too, has different focus, they came up with new things like controlling the hosts, playing chess or boxing matches with them like some arcade game. And they added a conspiracy and mistaken identity plotline too. I think it's a step up from the first movie.
Rewatching the telly show. I forgot how awesome the first season is.

Wine. White. But we eat it, or drink it as juice, because not enough for wine, and we have neither the tools nor the facilities to make wine although I could give it to a pal who has, or even to a relative, but again, the amount lacks seriously, plus too much bother.

Jesus Christ this weather.
We have rain every day for a month now. Last week and last night we got a storm with constant lightning. I've never seen such thing ever in my life. Last night it kept on lightning for ~25 mins, with constant thunder (couldn't guesstimate the distance), until it passed over. Huge downpour too. Was a bit of blackout. It was weird with the constant lightning when the streetlights went out.
It was fucking insane.
It's raining again, half past 10 in the morn but it's dark outside like in the anus of a mole. Less lightnings luckily. Expecting more blackouts. Or brownouts whatever it is called.



Politics Serious Discussion - Getting out edition Bernd 04/24/2020 (Fri) 17:54 [Preview] No. 36217 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Justice Minister Moro resigned. He is immensely popular and was doing a good job. There have been high-profile arrests and in 2019 the number of murders dropped by 10 thousand compared to the previous year, a decrease of a fifth. This is a result of many factors: in the Northeast cooperation among cartels reduced violence, but the reduction happpened in other states. Legislation wasn't a factor as there was next to no real change in this regard. He retains much prestige despite the scandal with his leaks, eternal hate from the left due to being Lula's nemesis and repeated disempowerment of the anti-corruption struggle by Congress and the Supreme Court.
What caused this was Bolsonaro's elimination of Federal Police director Maurício Valeixo, who had been picked by Moro. In his final address he noted that:
-There was no legitimate reason for this as he had been effective in his post
-This was a violation of the promise Bolsonaro made upon naming him Minister, that he'd have freedom to handle subordinates
-Bolsonaro also intends to replace a subordinate of the director, the Rio de Janeiro superintendent, and possibly other superintendents, which goes against his spirit of giving autonomy to subordinates
-A replacement now would create confusion and harm the Federal Police's functioning
-Bolsonaro personally told him this was a political choice

Why political? He did not say this straight, but what everyone says is that it was to protect Bolsonaro's sons from investigation, and hence why the Rio de Janeiro superintendent is also involved. Their corruption accusations are petty for Brazilian standards but what's bigger are accusations they might be tied to militias. As always Bolsonaro's sons are his priority. This behavior doesn't come out of nowhere as he has few contacts in Brasília, having lived his career in the sidelines, and many reasons to be distrustful. Moro isn't someone he has a reason to distrust but his sons still came first.

Europeen Parliamentary Elections is ongoing from 6 to 9 of June. This is when us Europeons cast our ballots to get rid of the most useless cunts in our country for 5 years by sending them to Brussels.
I'm not sure about other countries but here one topic, frankly the major topic is the Ukraine war. War or Peace!
Fun thing, this was mentioned by Wyatt of DPA, that the Ukrainian Defense Ministry does not give out reports these days, and he suspects it might be because of the "peace conference" and Ukrainian govt. want less bad news to talk about. I hit up DW to read about the peace conference, they sure mention it, but the "Ukraine" headline disappeared from the navigation bar at the top. This made me think maybe, the thing is hushed now because everything is a propaganda, and it is common practice that during the days of elections the campaigns are paused. Therefore they shut down UDM communications too for a bit.


I picked this image because that hand placing the ballot into the urn looks like a dispirited man gave up all hopes, or a peon bowing to their masters. Granted a bit too squiggly legs.

Here's the comparison between the previous and the next EU Parliament. This will change somewhat, for most are still "Provisional" results, but especially for the "Non-attached members" and the "Others" can find a party group to join. Fidesz is NI at the moment, and there were talks beforehand if they can join somewhere.
https://results.elections.europa.eu/en/tools/comparative-tool/

This website also has a handy tool for calculating majority.
https://results.elections.europa.eu/en/tools/majority-calculator/
Frankly this doesn't matter as much as for national elections because these parties don't form a government. The EP accepts or rejects laws proposed by the European Commission, and they vote however the fuck they want. So the party groups on the right might gained more seats, the EPP oriented towards the left so they can vote in whatever the left pushes currently.

Greens and Renew Europe Group (liberals) lost a lot of seats. I think trust in Greens fell due to agricultural issues and energy crisis. The libs perhaps has little to offer in current issues. I dunno.

Also what's up with Ireland?

Essentially it is ready. I might make it thinner, and/or coat it with varnish (so the oils it gathers from the skin, the dust that settles on the surface won't build up and make it dirty, so it can be cleaned and kept clean easier).

I just realised something... something spooky as fuck.

You know how sumo is derived from some ancient rituals? How it was performed in shrines, to appease the kami, to ensure prosperity? It was only later professionalised, and is now performed on a national level by salaried wrestlers, but there are still many religious elements, from how the ring is consecrated by a priest before each tournament, yokozuna entering the ring with that big white rope around his belt, to wrestlers actually throwing salt into the ring before each bout as a means of consecration. It is a deeply religious ritual, somehow performed to appease the kami for the entire nation of Japan. Kinda like how the ancient Olympic Games were performed on temple grounds, and were a form of vitalist worship of Greek gods.

You know when's the last time sumo wasn't performed as scheduled? March 2011. The March of the earthquake and tsunami that rekt Japan. But guess what? The tournament was cancelled a month before. Because of some match-fixing scandal. Yep, that's right. And the earthquake happened 2 days before the tournament was scheduled.

The earthquake happened because the sumo ritual wasn't performed. Because the kami weren't appeased. They were pissed and caused the earthquake as a warning.

Haven't written much about this tournament, but perhaps it's not too late. Heh.
So the makuuchi yusho was won by Onosato. He achieved this feat on his seventh (7th) tournament since he enrolled into pro-sumo. He took the place from Takerufuji, who did it on his 10th tournament in March. Considering the 3 tournament difference, it might not be possible much earlier. Perhaps on the 6th. Onosato could have won the previous. Maybe 5 bashos could be possible. 2 complete domination in makushita, then 2 in juryo, and then on first tournament in makuuchi - bam yusho.
Onosato's winning bout was against Abi. He successfully held against Abi's initial charge, then pushed on quick, herding Abi out with ease. Wasn't a sensational bout for the audience, but was a climactic for him and his family. His dad cried, just as Onosato when he went out and back to the changing room or wherever they go after the matches.
12-3 is a good start for an ozeki run. He had a bit of luck with almost everyone being injured, but I think he has the potential to get 21 points in the next to bashos (a 10 and an 11 should be enough). I'm kinda hyped.

Should enter the new year without mentioning, and frankly celebrating the fact that Hungary is out on the UEFA Euro Cup 2024!
We came out on the top of group G without suffering 1 defeat. Such as this had not happened since the 1972!!!! Extraordinary excite!
We landed in Group A, and will face Germany, Scotland, and Switzerland. Germany is the absolute boogeyman here, and they host the Euro Cup, which will make 'em press the doorbell so hard, they will mow each opponent down.
Which means we'll compete with the Scotts and the Swiss for the second place. Which won't be a joke, but with them - at the moment considering the quality of the Hungarian team - are on more or less level, so while no matches can be taken granted, we can say we have a chance.

In our team's recent successes the key figure is Marco Rossi who manages our so called "National Eleven". Absolute legend. God Bless Him! He got his citizenship in October, I hope it won't end his fortune.

Enhanced Edition makes it possible to play this classic DnD based crpg on modern steel, fixes bugs, changes some rules, adds new NPCs with quests, new items, two new expansions (The Black Pits - arena fight generator?, and Siege of Dragonspear - which is a module for the original story, taking part between BG1 and BG2). It seems okay all in all.

I put Order of Battle WWII by Slitherine Software back. Previously I tried the tutorial, now I started the Africa Corps campaign.
The game looks like a carbon copy of Panzer General, and it feels kind of a remake, I'm sure the inspiration was there very much. It implements things differently, like arty units range is many more hexes (like in People's General), and has additional features (like can buy kinda talents for your campaign for the battle group you command which effects every unit), which are okay.
As for the campaign, haven't finished with the first scenario yet. Botched the first try (nothing bad, I just fucked up unit composition), the second went well until I lost attention and it turned out just moving units forward ad hoc without a plan, and now it's kind of a mess (although I'm winning at towards at the end - playing on second easiest level however...). I might restart it again. I get to know the features and how things are done. I've no idea where it shows how much ammo and fuel a unit has for example.
I might try some other campaign too.

Oh and here's a modernized mod for playing Morrowind

https://openmw.org/

I liek Morrowind, but it feels really outdated compared to most recent elder scrolls games. It needs a lot of improvements IMHO.

>Has this ever happened to you bernds?
No. I rarely play multiplayer. And wouldn't consider playing GTA multiplayer.
>ps
I also don't play on consoles.
>All of the clothes are available from the start of the game
That would be nice feature.
>Storyline with 2 players
Interesting. Now I would consider MP.
>Accessible interiors
Cool. Sometimes I wished I could enter some buildings.
>Second player has a skin selector
Second player should be Cesar
>Both players can drive vehicles at the same time
Very cool.

So. After a couple of maps (and restarts) later. It's a good game.
There are features to get used to for sure. Like artillery don't defend units around them (but AT do help). Or the exit points - and enter points that can serve as exit.
Lot depends on the designer, editor of a map, if events are planned for it, sidegoals defined - and rewards for them -, and if its clear what is expected and should be done.
One thing that bugs me: can't tell which are the main goals, the hexes that needs to be occupied. As far as I can see there is nothing that indicates a hex with elevated importance.

I don't think that's Turkbernd.
Could be the guy from bernd.group who mods the site and posts with Turkball soemtimes, but I don't think he is from Turkey.
Could be the Bernadette from >>>/agatha2/ who is apparently studies in Turkey.

It's a cooking channel which offers a historical background for each meal he makes.
Here's so called "Boyardee Spaghetti Sauce" - which comes in cans (I don't think we have that here):

Probably not. Turkeybernd is more cheeky to banter with and funy :DDD

Or perhaps he got sour and disillusioned. I hope not.

I'm looking for a car but I don't know much about them. I am thinking of a car like a Fiat 500 or a VolksWagon Beetle. What other cars are there like this, cars that are small so they are easy to park and don't use much fuel but that also look interesting and nice.

I wonder if the routing Korean units could have been stopped and recruited to do fortification works, and perhaps create some reserve from those who are willing to fight. But ultimately Chinese were stopped so.
Bombing own/allied units is a surprisingly common phenomenon.

Particularly for the US, what was that WW2 Joke again? Something like,
When the British fly over the Germans duck, when the Germans fly over the British duck, when the Americans fly over everybody ducks.

Ack bernds, the junior developer we hired just ruined the entire code base. I had to spend a long tiem fixing everything up and my boss got angry at me for things not working. So me and my boss just went and agreed that we should just let him go, after explaining to him why the junior dev crashed all the code.

I gave the junior a lot of code feedback and best practices advice, but he never listened to me and did everything all crazy like. Some people just don't wanna hear when you talk with them.

I also was suppose to be getting a new position and raise soon, but nothing really came of it, YET. Some people in charge of handling that are on paternal leave, so dunno what's going to happen next. Maybe I'll wait.?

That looks raly tasty bernd. Maybe add some steam around it so it looks like they just got cooked recently.

>best practices advice,
Those are all just routine habits everyone forgot their origin, and circumstances that called them into existence might not exist. Or was a misunderstanding in the first place.
