News flash: even old folks here don’t want to fight. Being disillusioned and propagandified ain’t for young people only.

Old folks say that about every generation.

Every generation.

Without fail.

The current generation will once again take up the pack and do what every generation has done before.

Honestly don't think that having the sand to fight is the point, gen Z has been brainwashed to low level hate America. Everything wrong in the world is America's fault. America stole land, America mistreats people of color.

Why would anyone want to fight for something they have been told is evil their entire lives?

It took Russia almost 5 months to take a city only a few miles from one of their strong holds.

10 years to go a few miles.

I am running more than that today and I will do it in under an hour.

But, in order to want to fight for the guy next to you, you have to be there first. It's looking like gen Z isn't volunteering in sufficient numbers. IMO at least part of it is their generation has been brainwashed to hate America.

A lot of factors in play.  

Conscription is never easy, the Russians have their own unique challenges I'm sure.   The U.S. certainly did during Vietnam and I imagine even during WW2 there were more than a few draft dodgers even if that's not how history recorded it.  

Ukraine is trying to build a modern military and wants to build domestic military industrial capacity in the middle of an invasion. That's a very tall order and likely impossible to do in this age.   It is why I believe it was always a foregone conclusion that Ukraine would lose territory to Russian permanently as a consequence of this war.  

As the Romans said thousands of years ago "Si vis pacem, para bellum," which is a Latin adage translated as "If you want peace, prepare for war".  This is why a standing well funded miltiary and a robust domestic military industrial capacity are so important to maintain during peace time.  This invasion, hopefully, will be the slap in the face that the USA needs to get its affairs in order and re-examine its priorities, but I fear it will ultimately not have that impact.  Sadly, for all the talk in NATO of how important defense is I don't think there has been any real catharsis.   The West is falling and the barbarians are already ravaging the frontiers.  Nothing we debate here or say here will change any of that and you should all plan for the future accordingly, because things are getting worse not better for Western civilization.

The average age of an infantryman in Ukraine right now is 43 years old.

Don't kid yourself folks, if there is a WW3 a lot of the younger GEN X guys will be at the front as well.   If your cardio and health isn't squared away, you've got more motivation now.   Demographic decline in the Wests means the older guys have more a burden now than they have in the past.

Once upon a time, several years ago, Goatboy posted a thread for discussion of how to improve the forum. AFAIK, none of the suggestions offered were taken. Many good members have been banned, and other good members have quit from seeing good members get banned. The signal to noise ratio in GD is a good deal worse than it was years ago. That's just how it is.

Ukraine Drafting 500K MORE MEN To Serve In LOSING War Against Russia: Rising


Others face reality, paying for training. rather than getting grabbed from the street and having to fight or facing a decade or so in prison for refusing to fight. Surprisingly, only 3-5 years for rejecting mobilization. I wonder if Ukraine will ever pull a Russia and have prison inmates go fight.

Looks like the gov there is trying to avoid a larger mobilization by encouraging volunteers through the option of choosing their unit/role. Mixed results. Private companies being paid to facilitate the recruitment.
