How can Russia afford the latest weapons, and wars in Ukraine and Syria, when it can't afford to feed its own people? 90 million living in poverty in a country of 145 million.

Pamela Karlan wants Ukraine fighting the Russians there, so we don't have to fight them here! That's Edith Bunker.. .Dingbat crazy!

I have bad news for the old bag. Russians in the "war with the Ukrainians" have not even showed up yet. And the professor would have heard if the Russians had started at Ukraine. Because instantly, all the firing canons that kill civilians of Donbass, would be silent. Forever and ever.
In Syria, Russia is fighting against international terrorists and their godfathers. Very limited contingent. And it is visible and audible to the whole world, while the arrogant and deceitful statements about the "war with Russia" for 5 years have never been confirmed by any photograph, not a single video, and indeed, only an idiot, scoundrel or professor of Stanford can talk about the war of Ukraine with Russia in while Ukraine and Russia conclude an agreement on the passage of gas through Ukraine. What are they smoking there?

Dreamworld....

Sure, the Donetsk and Luhansk "People's Republics" have howitzers, heavy artillery, battlefield radar vehicles, armored and unarmored vehicles, self-propelled artillery, Grads, and ... and .... T-72B3 and T-90A tanks which were never exported to any country.

Look! A 2018 rebel Victory Day parade in Donetsk!!!!!



A DPR tank column.



Funny, isn't it? All these tanks, and no flags, no insignias.

Canada is another country who refused to buy the F-35 super-wunderwaffe.
Total: Canada, United Kingdom, Turkey, Germany, France.
For the $ 1.5 trillion spent, it was easy to buy a dozen countries without even starting drawings of this ***.

Americans have a tendency to wildly overstate how bad things are here, while being completely ignorant of conditions anywhere else.
Of course they do!

People in these US counties are at risk of dying early

In brief: rich fuckers live longer, while those who are in counties that are losing jobs...especially full time jobs, have made the US of A the only developed nation in the world today where life expectancy is in decline. Natch CNBC wants to sugarcoat that trendline, but they have to acknowledge that the US's comparatively low and declining public spending on health and other social needs is increasing all of the factors that lead to earlier and untimely death: lack of health care, substance abuse, diabetes, poor nutrition, sedentary lifestyles...................



'A distinctly American phenomenon': Our workforce is dying faster than any other wealthy country, study shows
Jorge L. Ortiz
USA TODAY

The engine that powers the world’s most potent economy is dying at a worrisome pace, a “distinctly American phenomenon’’ with no easily discernible cause or simple solution.
Those are some of the conclusions from a comprehensive new study by researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University showing that mortality rates for U.S. adults ages 25-64 continue to increase, driving down the general population’s life expectancy for at least three consecutive years.
The report, “Life Expectancy and Mortality Rates in the United States, 1959-2017,’’ was published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The study paints a bleak picture of a workforce plagued by drug overdoses, suicides and organ-system diseases while grappling with economic stresses.
“This looks like an excellent paper – just what we needed to help unravel the overall decline in life expectancy in the U.S.,’’ said Eileen Crimmins, an associate dean at the University of Southern California who’s an expert on the link between health and socioeconomic factors.

In a trend that cuts across racial and ethnic boundaries, the U.S. has the worst midlife mortality rate among 17 high-income countries despite leading the world in per-capita spending on health care.
And while life expectancy in those other industrialized nations continues to inch up, it has been going in the opposite direction in America, decreasing from a peak of 78.9 years in 2014 to 78.6 in 2017, the last year covered by the report.................

T-90A sightings in Ukraine
In the summer of 2014, reports of T-90 family tank sightings in eastern Ukraine started to appear. A Telegraph article cites a Ukrainian activist with the words: “Lugansk. We are retreating. Long convoys of tanks […] The men have endured a battle with a battalion of new Russian T-90 tanks”. Until 2016, there was only limited visual evidence supporting the claims.

One piece of visual evidence has surfaced in the form of a YouTube video, reported to have been filmed on August 25th, 2014. That would place the video’s filming date towards the end of Battle of Ilovaisk, meaning a phase of active hostilites between the forces. A noteworthy fact is that a number of Russian tanks were destroyed during the battles. The exact filming date however is difficult to determine without access to the original source, but the video can be geolocated to confirm the filming location.

The existence of the video was first reported by Ukrainian conflict researcher Askai707, who tweeted about it on 21.11.2016. At the same time, he posted a geolocation of the video, documenting the presence of T-90A tanks in the conflict zone. The video was filmed near a railroad crossing south-east of Lyse (48.469797 39.596891), a small Ukrainian locality in the Luhansk oblast.

As mentioned earlier, the video was allegedly filmed on August 25th, 2014. According to situation update by Ukraine’s NSDC for the date, Ukranian positions were holding at Novosvitlivka – just 6 km west of Lyse where the video has been filmed. Proximity of hostile forces could thus be one explanation of the uncovered elements of the Shtora-1 countermeasure suite.
