    A Second American Has Died in Ukraine. Hes Unlikely to Be the Last | RollingStone

    RT tipped me off to this article...


    **
    June 20, 2022


    [snip]


    Nettles, whose tour in Iraq was near Baqubah, with the 2nd Marine Division, says that his motivation for volunteering to fight in Ukraine is to bring attention to the plight of a South African woman, Ashley Oosthuizen, who is unjustly imprisoned for life in Thailand for drug crimes that she did not commit. If it was not for Ashley, he says, I would not be anywhere near this ridiculous mess.


    The media only tells one side, he goes on. I am here. I see the reality. Bridges blown up while friendly forces are still on the other side, no communication between units, friendly fire all the time.



    For example, Nettles says, They tell us we have support, and then fire off three mortars and call it a day. They give a guy who has never used an automatic grenade launcher and then tell us he will be our indirect support at night from 1.2 kilometers away. I didnt make this shit up. It is a fucking shit show. The Ukrainians are brave Ill say that. As for the rest, I can only shake my head as good men die for no reason at all.

    Already a thread about this guy. He tripped a wire in the fog, and the other guy with him was too close. He lived but, Zabielski died. Another (a Canadian IIRC) made a mistake driving towards the explosion to help those two, and got blown up in his jeep. Maybe another trip. He lived as well. Burnt bad though.
    DuckDuckGo is a leftist, Soros sponsored and financial contributor to the collective left. They are the proverbial wolf in sheeps clothing. They present themselves as an option away from the corrupt Google, when in fact...they are only a contrived option that really just gives money, and takes money from our ideological enemies. Qwant appears to be an option. Spread the word.

    I take my hat off to those willing to volunteer to go into Ukraine and put it on the line to help.

    Anyone willing to put it on the line for their own beliefs is someone I can respect.

    The only thing they're helping with is prolonging the war. Certainly good for the military industrial complex, but little else. I think Nettles said it best in his closing remark that I quoted:

    "I can only shake my head as good men die for no reason at all."
    "Trust those who seek the truth, doubt those who find it."

    As do I.

    It is unfortunate, however, that so many in America, even Conservatives now see fighting for freedom and victory as a worthless deed.

    Even as many support and long for Totalitarian rulers.

    Every dumacrat and half of the Redums have that Ukranian flag stuck so far up their ass the shit has backed up into there brains.

    If you want to go off and fight for the sovereignty of a foreign nation whose only tie to the US is the corrupt dealings of an illegitimate president and his whoremongering son,be my guest.

    Meanwhile millions of invaders are pouring across our southern border to compromise our laws and election process and our illegitimate president is OK with that.

    Sounds to me like you and many others in this nation need to unfuck yourselves and wake the Hell up to what's really going on.

    BTW I'm an Indie because of the kind of fucked up thinking that you just displayed.

    Volunteers.

    I'm sure Americans in the Lafayette Esquadrille died in World War One.

    I'm sure Americans in the Abraham Lincoln Brigade died in the Spanish Civil War.

    My question is: So what?
    Marxists, Socialists, Democrats, Russians, and the legacy media.

    They lie all the time. They lie about everything.

    They know they are lying. We know they are lying. They know we know they are lying.

    They lie anyway. It's what they do.
