#1  Are there any reports from Americans on this website or just pr from the thieving, raping and mass murdering Russians?

#2 Americans should not be in a position to report on it. Because we should not be there. Our money and materiel should not be there.

#3 American reporters will lie to you even more than Russian and Ukrainian ones. It's part of their code.

#4 Are there any reports from Americans on this website

We also have PR from the Ukrainians for balance, Omineling Forkbeard1962.

Politics, opinions, culture war, land of the free, home front: war on terror… In general we try to keep our reportage as local to events as we can manage. If you know your American news media, we generally place the source’s name in square brackets at the beginning of the article text so our readers can quickly judge for themselves how to weight the presented information. As has been mentioned here before, lies and propaganda are also informative to the prepared mind.

At the moment we’re actually limited in terms of Russian sources. I’m told they’ve reduced international access to forestall hackers, so we’re mostly working with Ukrainian and Russian-Ukrainian sources for the war over there. Click on the headlines to see the source material in the original language, if you’d like.

#5 If you want relatively 3rd party analysis good luck - everyone has a dog in this fight. You could try indianpunchline dot com or medium dot com Tom Cooper for an Austrian point of view. Reminiscence of the future and the saker dot is seem to have some interesting insights from the Russian side of the house. Larry Johnson sonar21 dot com is a knowledgeable American. Three big challenges. 1 - the war is live and opsec is in effect. 2 - beaucoup propaganda from all sides. 3 - this isn’t a 3rd world beat down. The Russians are fighting a nato trained and equipped army on their home turf without an overwhelming numerical advantage. Most (90+%) commentators have little real world training or experience in near peer combat tactics - and fewer in strategy. I’m just patiently waiting for the after action reports to eventually trickle out to learn what actually transpired. If they ever do …

#6 My two biggest takeaways so far are how important railroads still are for logistics and how layered air dominance has been (below 3,000 meters all drones and manpads while the Russians seem to have matters in hand above that altitude). Surprising that EM spoofing hasn’t had more of an impact (that we know of).

#7 /\ Entirely valid observations CB. I hope someone in Washington is paying attention.

This. So much this. Though patience is not one of my virtues. ;-)
