This is going to upset a lot of Brosheviks, many of whom should know better.

I'm going to point out the hate fact that Ukraine has not committed ANY war crimes.


Russia started by attacking civilian habitation with no military necessity--shelling apartment blocks to the ground and calling in strikes on entire subdivisions IN CLEAR ON THE RADIO.

Three days in, they were stealing food without payment or signing for compensation.

They bombed marked hospitals, including a maternity hospital.

They bombed a marked civilian shelter.

They murdered refugees who didn't take the official, "we'll only let you flee to Russia" route they declared.

They stated they'd murder uniformed mercenaries as "War criminals," which they are not. But if Russia does murder them, it certainly is a war crime.

While sending in their own mercenaries to rape and murder.

They raped and dismembered civilian women.

They desecrated bodies by pulling out the gold teeth to sell.


Genocide counters any Hague or Geneva restrictions.

Ukrainians rounding up Russian "soldiers" and exterminating them like vermin isn't a "War crime." It's more like scraping dogshit off your shoe.

Russia hasn't abided by any LOAC since this started. None applies to them. They are invading savages and terrorists, not a legitimate military force.  

Historical background:  The day Germany lost the Battle of Britain.

During the Blitz, a reporter asked Elizabeth, Queen Consort (Later the dowager Queen Mother) when the Royal children were leaving London.

She replied, "The children will leave when I leave, I will leave when the King leaves, and the King is not leaving."

If the King would not leave, his people would not leave, no matter the threat.

They were all one people, and they would fight and live as one--Princess Elizabeth, the current Queen, trained as a truck mechanic and ambulance driver for the Territorial Army. She was 16.

             Germany should have given up at that moment.


This is a Ukrainian recruiting commercial from about four years ago.  I think it defines the entire war, and is possibly one of the best commercials ever, from a production and market standpoint. 

Let’s go through this:  It starts with shovels in farm and industrial use, and used as toys. It establishes the humble shovel as a critical tool for an agricultural society, a common link for everyone.

Next, we move to the battlefield—management of expectations. You are not joining the Ukrainian Ground Forces for some PT, foreign travel, and college money.  You are joining a military that expects to fight.  But you will have a shovel.  You can dig a hasty position, a tank sump, trenches and breastwork, raise it over the parapet to look for enemy fire, paddle across a river.  If you don’t have a (I believe the actual word in the original is a generic “chopper” that can refer to any tool such as a cleaver or axe) to cut your frozen bread in the trenches, you will have a shovel.  If you run out of ammo, you will still be in the fight, because YOU HAVE A SHOVEL.

Then they conclude that shovels will be used to build a fortress around their nation.

The commercial doesn’t glamorize the rifle, the tank, doesn’t even show missiles and aircraft, which they have plenty of.  The most important tool for a Ukrainian soldier, or any Ukrainian, is a shovel.     

The Russians can invade with aircraft and tanks, artillery and missiles, but as we’ve seen from the stranded convoys and horrifically outdated logistics (about 1930s tech), the Russians don’t have shovels, or at least not enough.

They really thought they could beat a people who are that down to earth, in all definitions.


Wear a mask!


What NIOSH rating do you recommend?



The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health has ratings for masks and respirators, depending on what type of contamination they protect against.


It doesn’t matter.


So, if you were going to be exposed to phosgene, you’d just rely on some random scrap of cloth?  Because you’d die. You need specific filters for specific contaminants.  That's why it specifically says on the labels they don't stop viruses.


They have to say that for liability reasons.


Incorrect. Your fluoride toothpaste can say it reduces cavities, because it has been proven to do so in extensive studies.


It stops the droplets.


What droplets?


Droplets that contain the Covids.


Viral particles can be aerosolized in large droplets that stop in cloth, and in droplets small enough to pass through, or airborne, or can transmit through the fecal-oral route, or several other disseminations. Cloth masks bottom out at a 3 micron mesh.  Coronavirus particles are about .1 nanometers.  They're smaller than cigarette smoke or VX nerve gas.  A cloth mask is incapable of stopping them.


The mask helps.


The most favorable meta-study in 2020 claimed a 1.9% reduction in spread, but failed to account for demographics, movement patterns, population density, or natural or artificial environmental factors.  A recent study cherry picked one village in Bangladesh, rather than comparing, say, Houston to New York or LA, and only found a 1% reduction in spread, only above age 65, and again failed to account for any other factors. This is a failure.


Why don’t you have faith in science?


First of all, science does not involve faith, it is a methodology, and when your observed facts, such as above, contradict the hypothesis, then the hypothesis fails and is junked.


Masks work!  The fact checkers say so!


The fact checkers are usually journalists with zero scientific credentials, disputing people who do have credentials. They also usually misstate the claims.  When they attempt to refute a claim, they tend to use a single recent pop article, or out of context single study, to argue against 50 years of professional research that random cloth masks don’t do anything.


Just wear a mask and this will be over!


That claim was made in July 2020, that “6-8 weeks of masks” would end the virus. Once again, observable facts contradict the hypothesis, therefore, it fails and must be junked. There was no statistical difference in disease spread between areas requiring masks and areas not.


Wearing a mask is doing something!


You could also hit the ground with sticks.  In our study group, 100% of people hitting the ground with sticks daily avoided COVID.


That’s ridiculous. How would a stick possibly work?

The same way a mask does. At least it would be doing something.


I hope that by not wearing a mask you die.


But if the mask is to protect others, then why would not wearing one affect me?  Please make up your mind how it works.  And, if it stops viral particles going out, why wouldn’t it also stop them going in? Also, that’s a pretty uncharitable position.


Follow the science!


There are fifty years of research on masks, regarding viruses and other contaminants.  I’m following that science, which also means questioning claims.  Including the recent claim that a random scrap of cloth is effective at anything other than reducing airflow.


(At this point you’ll either have broken their programming, or they’ll insist you’re a “Trumper” and refuse to debate further.)

Oh, I know. You want to sit with your grandkids and tell them how you helped beat the Rona that almost wiped out America.  You did it while walking around in a gimp mask like the bottom bitch in a porno.

Or maybe you sat your fat ass on the couch and saved lives while drinking whine as part of the "quaranteam."

Possibly you can show them the grainy tube-saved video of your killer TikTok dance video, or your hymn praising Dr Fauscist.  Good luck finding a rhyme for "Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy."

At the end of the day, though, the mortality is .07%, and once all the cancer victims who just happened to test positive, half of them falsely, are removed, it's a lot less than that.  Even the Infection Fatality Rate, which is a term you can look up to educate yourself, is .23%, dropping rapidly on the curve with younger demographics. The actual Case Fatality Rate, that your revered High Priest Anthony couldn't actually quote correctly, is on par with a bad flu year.

What we're dealing with is the Media Industrial Complex, Big Pharma, the Demorrhoid Party, and the brand new Mask Industrial Complex finding ways to terrify you into begging them for the opportunity to use their products.

Meanwhile, normal people are walking around, breathing the air, and not falling over dead.

Where are your vaccine mandates over pertussis, measles, and polio (that last with an IFR near 30%)?  You're mentally incapable of grasping that any disease exists except Muh Covids!

This is why normal people are getting sick and tired of your pathetic cowardice, conspiracy nuttery, and outright fascist hysteria.

When it's all over, succeeding generations are going to laugh at you, as normal people are now, and blame you (correctly) for engaging in the bizarre combination of self-flaggelation and potlatching that's damned near crushed the economy, and murdered millions of non-Covidiots trapped in hospitals with your pathalogical obsession.  It's all on you, and you will deserve it.

Stop shitting your pants over a fucking cold.
