  1. I've got an idea. Let's NOT trust scientists & doctors who ACTUALLY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT. Let's trust Fox news, who've done a stellar job of brainwashing people into being very unsafe (recent poll showed only 38% of Fox watchers thought virus was serious). Let's trust the average Joe. Like we do on climate change in america, where the scientists are all liars but folks making money off fossil fuels somehow have no reason to lie. Oh, and basic biology is not based on evolution, just ask the average joe. And the earth is 6000 years old. Just ask Joe. And average Joe wants

    Tal Othman continued> Hezbollah fighters moving up, after repelling yet another HTS attack. Meanwhile, 9K111 operator engages a T 72M. Distance to target: 1300 meters. Missile flight time ~8 seconds. The operator is being encouraged by militia machinegunner. The missile is fired. The missile flies straight to its target. Target hit! The tank is knocked out. Turret crew evacuates, no sign of the driver - mechanic.

  4. Also, on the bright side, not only are the symptoms mild in most middle aged and younger people but even some of the elderly are able to recover. I copied the below from a news article: A great-great-grandma from Washington who was recently diagnosed with COVID-19 is showing the world what strength really means as she continues to fight off the infectious illness — and win. At 90-years-old, Geneva Wood is not letting anything stop her from living life with her five kids, 11 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren, according to a feature in Seattle Refi

  7. Not here. All closed. Schools closed. Restaurants closed but doing curbside or delivery. No events. Town meetings all by video or phone conference. No gatherings > 25 people. Over 60 no gatherings > 10 people. Chamber of commerce has a helpful web site with a spreadsheet on line with all food vendors (stores, bars, restaurants) their hours, and whether they do take out, curbside, delivery or drive thru. Local micro brewery is taking next week off from brewing to spend a full week making hand sanitizer. Then they'll give it all away. Pretty awesome. This is not a big company. Pretty

  8. we don't yet know what is happening now as this disease has only been here since late November. The Epidemic of 1918 circled the globe 3x due to reinfection in a world nowhere near as connected as ours. They didn't even really know what a virus was and their world was already totally disrupted by the war. This won't be the same for sure. However to say we are over reacting (and I'm not referring to those idiots buying 100 rolls of toilet paper) by getting people to socially disconnect in order to give our health care system a chance to handle the influx of folks is just wrong. Think about

  9. Have been seeing accounts, plus the rare and blurry pic occasionally, for years, but here is a crisp clean pic of a T-34/85 (shot at Brandenburger Gate in 1945) with two different kinds of protection: one for the turret and another for the upper hull. Below pic expands when clicked. Regards, John Kettler

  11. Zamulin's groundbreaking Demolishing the Myth (Prokhorovka) is on sale ($9.99 on Kindle) at Amazon today only, but that's how I found the book which is the topic of this post. Reviews are wide in their rating swings, but it appears the low ones have a lot to do with perspectives. For one, the book was done in the Soviet era, so is propagandistic to a consdierable degree, For another, for reasons unknown, formations are identified by numbers (Arabic or Roman) and such, but their commanders' names aren't given. Stalin isn't mentioned, either. Both things are weird.. Also, it's considered too dry

  17. Hi, I am released from my employer for 4 weeks because of Corona..., here in Germany the number of sick people and unfortunately also the number of deaths is increasing..., everything not nice at all. We can't leave the house anymore. Red Thunder would be a small ray of hope. Will it be something with the release this month, or not until April? Stay healthy all together!

  22. Perhaps you're right. Time will tell. Let's pray it won't get as bad as feared. Not taking any risks with my parents either. Only visit them to deliver their shopping, which I put in their barn without seeing them. Mother has half a long left, so ANY flue will kill her. But I still have severe hesitations about the economical measures. Something in the middle would be more wise, but as said, time will tell.

  23. I'm not sure whether I believe him, to be honest. But I like to keep an open mind on matters, which seems to be getting more and more difficult. And no, all is not good and measures have to be taken. But a lockdown? Destroying our own economy for years to come? I have the strong feeling another 2008 is coming and this time perhaps even worse. The reaction on the situation is getting out of balance, that's what worrying me. And in 1918-1919 between 50 to 100 million people died. Among them many young people. Quite different from what's happening now.

  24. That is some logic. If everyone gets the virus at once, the hospitals get inundated, respirators are already in short supply - result LOTS more people die. Health care workers that would be needed to treat folks are sick. The mortality rate for Corona virus is well above that of the flu even by conservative estimates. In Italy the mortality rate for older folks is close to 19% (overall rate is estimated at around 8%) Flu rate is around .1%. Might want to spend a little more time reading up on real facts. The panic etc is in good part due to our leaders spreading false information and ou

  25. If you think about it, logically the best way of handling this crisis is if everyone was infected. Then there would be no reason to not go out and live normally and keep the economy going. 30,000 people die from the flu every year and something like 70,000 die from traffic accidents and many more are seriously injured, but we don’t panic about that. If we focused on protecting the most vulnerable and let everyone else get sick for 2 weeks, our society & economy would probably be in better shape very much faster. All we've accomplished so far is create panic buying and pri

  27. Now part two: As all that gunfire was going on with the two American half-tracks, two more half-tracks were coming up the road behind them, making four in total. Right when the first firefight was ending, the two new half-tracks opened fire down the road. They didn't even see the Stummel right in front of them, but were instead shooting off to the right side of the road where they saw muzzle flashes from the firefight (where my shot-up HQ teams were). Some of my forward troops had already turned around from infiltrating the city and were rushing back to the sound of shoot

  28. Here's one of the more crazy close-range firefights I've ever seen in these games. This post might have spoilers for the Kampfgruppe Peiper campaign for anyone that cares. I was the Waffen SS attacking into Stavelot in the early morning hours, with the skies overcast and visibility almost at zero. You could walk right up to enemies and not see them even at point blank range. As the battle began and my forward platoons were fanning out toward the city, my company HQ and most of the company's half-tracks were kept back a bit. I thought they were all safe back there, silly me! Before lo

  32. That's a nice way of putting it. It should be a very interesting read but it seems the author is in some type of competition to see how many modern catch words & phrases he can pack into every sentence. Maybe it was time for his Officer Evaluation Report and he his trying to impress his rater with how articulate he is. After awhile I started to laugh and just read it for comedy sake. There are entire paragraphs of impressive, flowery, prose that might have one sentence of substance. Below is one example. This network encouraged vertical and lateral coordination and information
