Because it’s only a special military operation and not a war


Recommended Posts

Many Russian soldiers are refusing another assignment to Ukraine and the worst punishment they can receive is being fired (discharged).  If it was really a war punishment could be severe.  Russian lawyers are helping refusers fight any charges.   Odd that Putski hasn’t closed that loophole.

Might be the last thing they refuse! Navalny got lucky!

I wonder if that was a rule that was instituted after the fall of the Soviet Union?

Surprised that would make a difference. Can a servicemember refuse combat service because of nomenclature? Wasn't Korea a "police action" officially? None of our wars have been "declared" as such for generations.

Different country different rules.

You're asking about American soldiers; the story is about Russian soldiers.  It's a giant logical leap to assume that soldiers in every army worldwide fall under the same regulations.

And we haven't "won" one since 1945.  don't know why we keep getting involved.

Sooo, I was talking with my dear tovarisch Boris Ivanovich Vladimirski  and we were knocking back shots of wodka. When he was ‘in his cups’ so to speak Boris waxed philosophical and professed, “Is all part of Comrade Stalin’s Master plan I tell you. The West will believe the Russian Army to be incompetent, will join together in an alliance, will reduce the size of their armies, and Mother Russia will rise up and crush them, roll them into the ground. Brilliant!”

 

this was a spoof!

How much have the other allies sent? When I see something, it seems to be just a few million. We sure do get played.:angry: :FlagAm:

Yes, a whole new constitution, etc., though the interpretation suffers a little.

No doubt a reaction to Afghanistan, et Al.

As Father Vasiliy Vasileivich, spokesman for the Church Outside Russia of Orthodox Christians (COROC) and pastor of Saints Boris and Gleb and Olga and Vladimir Orthodox Church of Sydney, Australia, would say, "Is OUTRAGE! Was exposing of military secrets in seventeenth century Russia? No! Is OUTRAGE!"

With all the money wasted abroad, we could have a good start towards a socialist  utopia here.
