Check out your local craigslist. You'll find some good deals on Ukrainian AKs right now.

These weapons are made for the purpose of harming a large number of people, the contradiction they have as useful weapons of war is their purpose.
In most wars an army can be expected to deploy the lowest amount of troops and supplies possible as to ensure the lives of its soldiers are safe and the government it works for has surplus army supplies it can use to maintain its security over a state and the potential success of coming out victorious n future armed conflicts. WMDs contradict this basic behaviour by their own nature, if any armed conflict ever breaks out so violent that weapons that need to kill hundreds of thousands to millions need to be mass produced that represents a problem with how 2 or more armies are fundamentally approaching war and are said armies will have their governments invest in better infrastructure and machinery that can counter the effects of WMDs along with tools to make war less lethal as to ensure surplus troops. Evidence of this can be seen in the Cold War which saw an arms race to develop tech that could detect and down a nuke before it hits or launches like the internet and satellites, hazmat suits to counter radiation damage, or ww1 which saw the development of gas masks by garret morgan as a means to counter the effects of mustard gas and bio agents etc.
In conclusion WMDs are useless in warfare as the concept of a WMD itself contradicts the policies any properly maintained army would make to ensure its longevity and security in fulfilling its tasks, for every hypersonic ICBM developed there are radars made of reflective material detecting and sending missiles towards it before it can hit its target.


>for every hypersonic ICBM developed there are radars made of reflective material detecting and sending missiles towards it before it can hit its target.

Problem N°1 anti missile defense systems don't work. The data about performance in real world condition (actual combat) suggests that they even struggle against low speed, low altitude, low range unguided missiles. Expect that the 50% interception rate from synthetic tests will drop dramatically in an actual conflict.
Problem N°2 If they worked you'd need too many.
If your opponent has one ICBM you need a missile shield for every potential target. The more ICBMs your opponent has the larger the list of potential targets gets.
Problem N°3 war-heads that can subdivide into many small bombs.
Nukes can be made very small, and you can fit potentially hundreds or thousands of small nukes on a single ICBM, at this point statistics of large numbers take over, and getting a high interception rate is very unlikely, even if you had tons of effective missile defenses. Decoys will make this even harder.
Problem N°4 newer intercontinental missile systems that are already in service are not flying on ballistic trajectories, and it's not realistic to think that those can be intercepted by another missile, because without a predictable predetermined flight path, it's not likely that you can catch up to something going above Mach 5.

Once you can make lasers or directed particle stream weapon of sufficient power, this will change and anti missile defenses will become plausible, but not before.


highly recommend that anyone worrying about nuclear war watch this film:


Why isn't the invasion of manchuria ever talked about?
It's easily in the running for one of the greatest feats of warfare ever executed as it was instrumental in the Japanese surrender, yet overshadowed by the enola gay.

The WW2 /edu/ thread contains good stuff, but to be honest the only complete picture of the Red Army Tactics of the war are going to be in Russian (soviet) literature.


Embedding error.
>Why isn't the invasion of manchuria ever talked about in the West?
FTFY, Manchuria and its conflicts are not forgotten in the former USSR
>overshadowed by the enola gay
You've answered your query; it isn't politically expedient for the American people to know that Japan's surrender (and in fact the reason they never attacked the USSR at all) is due to numerous defeats at Soviet hands, specifically Khalkin Gol and "Operation August Storm". On the latter I have a pdf on it that I'll post later.


Glantz wrote a good book on Manchuria

Looks pretty good, thanks dude
Posting for everyone else


I mean, yea, that was quite an impressive feat of the red army, and the reason why the japanese surrendered.
But the Enola gay and the other nuke were fucking nukes, the literal two times were nuclear weapons were used. Like, I know it isn't that fair, but the nukes is possibly the more destructive thing ever made and they were dropped unto the civilian population destroying an entire city with just one bomb.
I mean, you could talk about how the dinosaurs became extinc because of their monstrous size requiring tons of food and so on and that we're destined to become extinct sooner or later, but people talk about the meteorite because it was a fucking meteorite.

Also it might be the reason why there aren't any alien civilizations out there, since the earliest space opera technology bullshit available to civilizations are literally nukes with the power to destroy civilization.

What the fuck are you talking about? The NRA doesn't sell guns, and it's not a government corporation. Are you high/drunk right now? It's not safe to handle firearms while intoxicated. Sleep it off and post when you're sober.


i think they mean the companies funding the NRA


This is just blatantly wrong. You shouldn't let ideology lead your life to the point where you get this out of touch with reality.


No. I get giving the guy the benefit of the doubt, but this post was just retarded and he should feel bad.

Sorry for any misunderstanding, English is not my first language

I mean "it flies under the radar of the goverment" as in "leftypol.org is not a popular or even known site to the government for them to even ban"


Ahh ok, I see now. I had interpreted that as leftypol was known by the government but not seen as something to censor.

The US tried to capture a "terrorist" in Idlib, the helicopter the special forces were using ended up getting shot down.


Who were they going after? That Golani HTS commander? Also did the crewmen of the heli die?


I couldn't find anything about the fate of the Crewman. Apparently it was ISIS commander, though we don't know this for sure. It is known that this happened in Afrin.


they did kill him and he was the new isis leader

I am fairly certain you can do it with just plain cotton as well.
Nitrocellulose was developed from a cotton rag being used to clean up a nitric acid spill, no?
