Now that The Korean Peninsula is cooling down, where is the next major conflict between peers likely to happen?

The baltic? Siberia? Israel? Indo-Pakistani Border? SCS?

>once NK achieved it's goal of getting nuclear weapons the sanctions and threat of action option became useless. Kim Jong Un is now trying to secure his position by improving his peoples living standards.
This. The nukes are to give NK some sort of guarantee that the US woun't try to murder them the moment they let their guard down.
Ukraine would love to be part of NATO, but the existing members won’t let it join because that might drag them into a war with Russia. If the Russians tried to occupy the Russian speaking parts of Ukraine, they would face an ugly and prolonged US-backed guerilla war.

No one is willing to risk bloodshed because it’s just not a big enough issue.
Now that the Syria situation is mostly done, and the NK stuff never evolved into anything major, I think that next up on the plate is Venezuela. There's enough material for the media to make a narrative about "muh oppressed hungry Venezuelans", plus Maduro seems like the kind of guy who'd pull a Saddam/Qaddafi with his oil exports.
Hopefully nothing happens though. Now that Bolsonaro is in charge of Brazil, maybe the world can just sit back and watch Venezuela crumble on its own.

Why did the Romans had no long-swords despite their advanced metallurgy?

I was reading up on the history of long-swords and came across the factoid that the Chinese during the Han-Dynasty (around 200BC to 200AD) already had not only long-swords, but actual ~140cm large twohanders to cleave through cavalry and stuff.

All the while, Rome literally relied on spears and small little pokey Gladii in the dimensons of around 30 to 40 centimeters blade length.

Most of their enemies didn’t even have armor.
Celts went in to battle practically naked when given the chance.
>The anabasis was written by Xenophon. He was from Sparta.
Xenophon was an Athenian who was subsequently exiled and allowed to immigrate by the Spartans and enroll his sons in the agoge -- and lose one of them in battle, which is apparently why he stopped writing -- because that's how badass he was.

You need to reread the source material a little more carefully.
The Roman legionary's primary weapon was his sword, the gladius. His two pilae (javelins) were there to be thrown at the enemy, mainly to literally get stuck in the enemy's shield walls and render them useless right before charging into the stunned enemy lines with swords drawn.

They didn't fight with spears like in a phalanx or whatever. Roman legions actually used this javelin/gladius form of combat to conquer the Greeks.
>Celts went in to battle practically naked
Common misconception. The average Gallic warrior was better armed than a Roman legionary. Roman armaments were known for their low quality. And Romans were severely lacking in cavalry during the Gallic wars. Julius Caesar relied on Germanic and Gallic cavalry all throughout the conquest.

Roman success in Gaul is mainly because Caesar was a literal fucking genius master of warfare, politics and logistics.

I just ordered a “pistol” from SanSwiss arms. What can I expect from this mountain-jew weapon? Are they as good of quality as they were years ago when sig owned them? I ordered one of the 553’s in 762x39.

There's probably two major reasons. First a lot of the kids here have built up their sense of self around guns, military things, things like that. So in this case the military looking guys are who they identify with, and who they will automatically root for. To do otherwise would be to risk a crisis of identity. And second we have a bit of reverse underdog. They simply like the feeling of power they get when imagining cutting loose with heavy fire-power against those who would be near enough defenceless.

Took my PTR out today to the after installing the enhanced recoil buffer.

Holy shit, what a difference that makes. It felt like I was shooting my SKS, it was so soft. It was an absolute joy to shoot. I'll also never get over the fact that it flings brass literally across the entire range (~30 feet).

How does the buffer make that much of a difference?
Making my jump to battle rifles after collecting nothing but 5.56 spitters.

Will you guys laugh at me for getting a RFB? Plz no bully.
It's pretty onions, and pretty squishy.
Solidly suggest the PTR or build yourself a FAL or at the very least an M14 yet I'd say the M14 is the weakest choice despite being a m14 owner.

Its literally a lock.
It can't be accidentally engaged by recoil. It must be depressed and turned 90deg to engage it. You will need the key to do that. On my version, aside from the trigger, it is the only safety and serves as the takedown detent.

Theyre famously good deer rifles, and allow for faster followup shots than bolt action
However, and this is possibly the simplest, but most common reason, theyre fucking fun.

They're beautiful, functional, sturdy, ergonomic, and fun rifles.

season-appropriate bump!
One thing that's always killed me about trying to write anymore stories taking place in somewhere like Rhodesia, is that there's not too many ways that I can find material and recordings relating to Springbok radio, which was apparently the first commercial radio service on the south end of the continent. There's very little to find, and like a lot of radio programs, there seems to be a very small sample size of their broadcasts which have either survived, been made available to the public, or been recorded. It kinda blows the wind out of trying to at least mentally attribute an aesthetic to the station, and in just about ANY story during it's run up to 1985, springbok radio would undoubtedly be present.

Yes. I was a dumb enlistee and I ended up developing some weird medical that I kept putting off thinking I could muscle through it and in they end they just separated me after enough fuckups.. In hindsight, it was probably for the best.
