He leaves out that the "high bonuses  for old men" is to retired NCOs and mid-level officers to come back.

At the height of WW2 only about 11% of Americans were in the miltiary.

In any given society you can expect only about 3% of the population to really be worth a damn in a conflict.   Anything above that is at best "support" unless the government has been really effective both in terms of propaganda and actual battlefield success.  As they say "victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan."   If Ukraine was just unequivacably kicking @#$  you'd see an uptick in enlistment, but they're not and so you're not going to see a lot of men joining up voluntarily or even reporting in when drafted.  Add to that the corruption that is taking place regarding recruitment (happens on the Russian side as well).  

Ukraine still does have some very highly motivated ideologically driven troops though like Azov Brigade.  Say what you will about their politics, but the Azov Brigade has put up one Hell of a fight since the start of this conflict. Those type of soldiers though are always rare.

I suppose a President who's biggest accomplishment before being elected was playing the piano with his genitals isn't as inspiring as Western media make him out to be.

That’s not accurate.

Ukraine is fighting for the survival of their nation. If they didn’t want to fight they wouldn’t have picked up arms to fight Russia.

Would you surrender to a burglar who said he was going to take your house, family, and possessions? Why not?

Because they are not actually pro-Russian, that only exists in your head. They are likely pro-America, which means no more debt spending and tax dollars for Ukraine's border defense and pensions for their retirees.

Incorrect.

Could you define what would make someone a pro-Russian?

For example, would having a Russian invasion tactical marking be a good sign?

It does mean something. It’s literally a Russian tactical marking for the current invasion and used as a propaganda sign.

The Z in the screen name is also a good indicator

It’s actually more than just one or two.

Probably about a dozen or so.

Dodging the question with smoke, mirrors, and pocket sand.

That doesn’t work here.

Does having a Russian invasion tactical marking as your avatar signify support of Russia during a time when said symbol was associated with the Russian invasion and that very photo Was taken off of a Russian army vehicle?

It's illegal for a current serviceman to join another army. We haven't even gotten into security clearances but on it's face it is blatantly illegal.  We haven't even addressed the State level military codes which you conveniently left out.

Like I said, you are able to go to Russia but yet you don't. Not a true believer I guess. Maybe the war isn't going so well for Russia?

Ironically enough one person from Arfcom did go to Russia. He disappeared about a year and a half ago and hasn't been heard since.

We aren't allowed to make lists or list people. I had a thread locked because I posted a list of folks who posted the most Russia/Ukraine threads in GD. I wasn't number one. I was 4 I think but I'll have to look the thread up to see my ranking.

I don't keep lists (but some people do and not on the pro-Ukraine side), but needless to say Daoliver924 is one of the more prolific pro-Russian posters. And yes, his actions and statements including actually agreeing with Russian statements place him in that category.

There are only a handful of people I have openly stated were pro-Russia. Most of the people on Daoliver924's list aren't even that. You can be against aid to Ukraine and not be pro Russia.

I'll say that again for the impaired and ignorant:

You can be against aid to Ukraine and not be a pro-Russian.

And no, Daemon and Ron sure ain't part of the "Pro Russian legion", and to my knowledge you aren't either. I've argued with both, one more extensively than the other in very obvious heated debates. He's not a pro-Russian by any means.

You can't be against Ukraine aid while pushing Russian propaganda, talking points, and proclaiming every Russian victory as a death knell and pushing Ukrainian setbacks and avoid that title.

"On December 25, 2023, the Cabinet of Ministers submitted to the Verkhovna Rada the draft law "On the Introduction of Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine to Improve Certain Issues of Mobilization, Military Registration, and Completion of Military Service" (No. 10378)."

I thought they had made the 25th Christmas for Ukraine. Wartime necessity I get, but submitting a draft of such a law on what is supposed to be for them a holy day and holiday? Makes me question their sincerity on that gesture

As for where funding for mobilization would come from, does it matter if it wont be directly by foreign money? If they get billions, even in equipment, that means they can spend their own billions elsewhere. And I recall Zelenski saying foreign money was paying pensions and such, so really any mobilization would be inadvertently paid by foreign money offsetting national budget costs elsewhere. Just seems rather odd to me

Scenes of people being hauled into vans. Report of peoples' bank accounts being frozen if they don't report for service. Pending mobilization bill.
Ukraine divided over controversial mobilisation bill • FRANCE 24 English


I would like to see vids from Russia of the same happening. I suspect it is worse over there. Reportedly (I can't recall from where), a good chunk of soldiers are being called up from more rural areas as to avoid the sudden draw being noticed.

2 days a month/ 2 weeks a year?

You can fit in a few days helping out https://www.militarytimes.com/flashpoints/ukraine/2022/02/27/want-to-go-fight-for-ukraine-heres-what-to-do/



I do a few days helping out here already as I'm preparing another couple packages to some training guys in Ukraine.

It's illegal for a current serviceman to join another army. We haven't even gotten into security clearances but on it's face it is blatantly illegal.  We haven't even addressed the State level military codes which you conveniently left out.

Like I said, you are able to go to Russia but yet you don't. Not a true believer I guess. Maybe the war isn't going so well for Russia?

Ironically enough one person from Arfcom did go to Russia. He disappeared about a year and a half ago and hasn't been heard since.

Did you actually refer to them as a legion of pro-Russian accounts?


We aren't allowed to make lists or list people. I had a thread locked because I posted a list of folks who posted the most Russia/Ukraine threads in GD. I wasn't number one. I was 4 I think but I'll have to look the thread up to see my ranking.

I don't keep lists (but some people do and not on the pro-Ukraine side), but needless to say Daoliver924 is one of the more prolific pro-Russian posters. And yes, his actions and statements including actually agreeing with Russian statements place him in that category.

There are only a handful of people I have openly stated were pro-Russia. Most of the people on Daoliver924's list aren't even that. You can be against aid to Ukraine and not be pro Russia.

I'll say that again for the impaired and ignorant:

You can be against aid to Ukraine and not be a pro-Russian.

And no, Daemon and Ron sure ain't part of the "Pro Russian legion", and to my knowledge you aren't either. I've argued with both, one more extensively than the other in very obvious heated debates. He's not a pro-Russian by any means.

You can't be against Ukraine aid while pushing Russian propaganda, talking points, and proclaiming every Russian victory as a death knell and pushing Ukrainian setbacks and avoid that title.



folks who spew that "why are you not going over there to fight then" bullshit is ignorant, and just shows how desperate they are to try and clam up anyone supporting Ukraine. Its like telling a football fan to shut the fuck up and stop rooting for his fav football team if hes not on the field playing...

Saw that yesterday.

Draft dodgers aren't the only problem with the number of soldiers. A significant amount of public push back to "bring home hundreds of thousands of soldiers who have been fighting for nearly 2 years". In other videos (I think France 24) there was an interview with some lawmakers on sending fewer everyday civilians and instead sending more civilians who have training in fighting (i.e. police)

Ukraine looking to close military conscription loopholes | BBC News



So you have Ukrainian gov saying they need 500k more soldiers at the front than they currently have, and you have the people saying they want hundreds of thousands of current soldiers brought back.

The lack of numbers of people going to fight boggles me. I just don't get it. The fight is for Ukrainian identity/existence, so why don't more volunteer enlist to defend the country? Or do they not take the threat seriously?

38MM people, say 10MM are eligible adults 18-60. If you have just 10% of that you have a million man army.

I am ignorant of what would make this unfeasible. I would think after so many billions in aid, there would be plenty of uniforms, small arms, and will to "blue/yellow wave" the Russians out? I've read/seen videos discussing, earlier, how the Russians are winning because they just throw men at the target. Now, it is lack of artillery by the Ukranians.

I wish I could see what the mindset is over there. Post 9-11 we had what, over 180k new enlistments into the military? Granted, I don't see that there was a huge surge, went from 1.38MM 2000, 1.4MM 2001, 1.42MM 2002, and has held under 1.4MM for most of the time since then. But, 1968, there were over 3.5MM military personel.


700k men abroad. At one point it was over 1MM, have the efforts of the gov to bring folks back been somewhat successful?

Does anyone know or have a reasonable speculation on what happens to the people they grab off the street? What if someone forcibly brought does not do anything, as in refuse to pick up a rifle, refuse to put on uniform, etc? Prison? Just drop them off where the artillery is falling? What do the authorities do to someone who just goes limp the entire time in custody?

here is one elephant in the room nobody wants to talk about but which is directly responsible for this mess:

Abortion rates

in Ukraine, they are high and comparable to any former Soviet Union republic or mother Russia itself.

if the practice was prohibited, Ukraine would easily have the 500K+ they are looking for. Maybe millions more.

Liberal abortion laws brought on by far left wing progressives since 1920's have been very myopic and destructive. They highlight the personal freedoms yet what good is  personal freedom when the entire country is at risk of disappearing, in its current form?

Ukraine is not  just  fighting a war, it's facing an  existential struggle for its  very survival.  And there is a reason they got to be where they currently are.

Uh, he just responded in kind. What is this "our land" anyway? I don't see anyone sharing land around here.
Having said that, yes, I would fight if California was being invaded by a foreign power and the fight was sanctioned by the government. I would have to have a deep conversation with myself whether there was actually a will to win however.

I wonder how many make it back.

How are the draft dodgers hearing about how bad it is for those who get scooped up? Telegram?

I wouldn't. That same government will blame me and people like me for all the evil in the world as soon as the war is done. Worse if I die, they'll oppress my kids and family later without me even being around to help them.
