True. They have no excuse for invading Iraq when it was clear at time that it was a terrible fucking idea.
As for Afghanistan, that one wasn't a war of choice, but we never had a viable strategy for winning and our entire plan was to stick around in the hopes that shit would for some reason just start suddenly working, It was clear for over a decade that we weren't going to win that one, and every day we stayed after that point was because of sheer morale cowardice.

what's the strategic implication of showing people if they kick the ass of recruiters that you'll stop conscripting them?
>what's the strategic
kid why do you keep making these threads
russia's gonna come in and conscript every single male age 5-80 and rape every single female 5-80 and fix that little problem.
I hope this is a positive development but I feel like the kgremlins are about flatten another apartment block

it gives russia a chance to show the west that their nukes still work, without risking escalation by nato.

My aunt was a medic in the Russian army after the collapse, she says weapons training consisted of an hour long AK-74 lecture followed by shooting three bullets. None of hers hit anything, the trainer just shrugged and said "just keep it clean." Looks like nothing really changed.

How would /k/ deal with a modern underground insurgent movement?
You're trying to hold a captured area, but they're capable of unrestricted and unmonitored movement via tunnels and trenches. Men and materiel can be brought within spitting distance of your FOBs, or worse, your depots and logistical centers.

Spotters can hide in spiderholes and 'listening posts' along major thoroughfares, using cheap cellphones or wired communications to report on troop and supply movements.

Infrastructure is undermined--tanks and troop carriers fall into steep-sided pits, stopping or slowing them and causing logistical strain as the need for repairs skyrockets. Primitive "earthquake" bombs are used to great effect, as simple fertilizer bombs set underground destabilize the footings of walls, radio/cell repeater towers, bridges, etc.

What sort of doctrinal approaches and specific tactics/tools do you use? To make things more interesting, I'll point out the things that failed in Vietnam. Naturally this doesn't mean they're completely useless, but think about it first.

>Gas them
Pushing a huge amount of OC spray, tear gas, smoke, or carbon monoxide through a large tunnel system is challenging, if not impossible. Simple sealed doors stuffed with soaked rags can render these approaches much less effective, and concealed secondary ventilation/exists can make them entirely pointless.
>Burn them
Often treated as a subset of the above. The issue is that in a tunnel with multiple entrances/exists, a small fire near one entrance only serves to increase ventilation from the other, like 'draw' on a wood stove. You would need a massive fire spread throughout the entire complex, which has its own challenges.
>Drown them
Depending on the tunnel design and soil composition, this could be effective. Do consider, however, that even a 'small' tunnel 3 feet wide, 3 feet tall, and 30 feet long is 2,000 gallons in volume. How are you transporting this water, and where are you getting it?

What if you just paid them to come out? Might be cheaper, and have better political metrics for the insurgency after party.
Anyone have the underground slime suit pic?

Hey guys, just got a 10/22 for practicing fundamentals and plinking, put about 100rds of CCI minimag through it from farm n fleet and it worked great. I will probably put a romeo5 on it and setup like pic related, I want to use it to get better with my AR and just for fun.

What's some good cheap ammo and how much should I be looking to spend? Is the lead nose ok? Also would like to know what the best "self defense" loading would be. I have other options for HD 12g 9mm and 5.56 but I think it would be just fun to at least keep it loaded just in case.

I want to get better at shooting so i bought this so I could shoot cheap, I have an aimpoint on my AR too so I am hoping some of the skills and practace will transfer over.

Also I need 25 rd mags what ones are good?

Trying to keep it cheap here
Federal Punch for self defense.
Don't bother with 25s.
get whatever is cheapest on ammoseek for plinking
Whatever runs good in it. Lead bullets tend to gum it up in under a magazine.
>what mags
Factory, if it's ruger go factory and don't think twice.
cci standards are pretty good. try out a few different types of ammo, you never know what your specific gun will like or dislike. bulk 22lr is roughly 10cpr right now.
self defense ammo- maybe cci stingers?
as far as magazines go, get the ruger bx-25. do not get anything else.
have fun and enjoy shooting, OP
For plinking? The cheapest you can find, preferably US made if it's the same price. A lot of places are having deals on the Federal AM22 boxes right now. 325rds for $20-21. I tend to go for the higher than normal velocity ammo (around 1200-1280 fps and 38-40gr) because it's the same price as standard velocity and cycles better in some semi-autos. I suggest sticking with OEM magazines on most guns. The BX-25s are reliable.

CCI Stingers are slightly better than the Federal Punch for hunting/defense. Heavier boolet @ only 10fps less.
I put whatever cheap bulk ammo I pull out of the ammo closet in mine and it seems to eat whatever I throw at it. I tend to buy cci standard velocity because that is what my Ruger precision rimfire shoots best with, but I still have piles of cheap bricks of whatever I've ratholed over the years.
Absolutely do not buy aftermarket 10/22 mags. Most of them are shit and even the good ones are hit and miss. Just buy factory and skip the bullshit.
Federal punch is the best 22 defensive round I've seen because it penetrates well and 22 has penetration problems with heavy clothing. There is also the silvertip that I think is Winchester, but it is made to expand into petals and I don't think that's optimal for a small underpowered bullet.

So, this is probably what will happen?
>Russian planes getting past the baltics

>someone shooting nukes over enemy territory and thinking there would be any 'warning shots' afterwards.
>Plan A
The A is for assumption that anything Russia has is still working. They're having quite a crisis of confidence right now.

I'd also like to discover other people like Mr. Heemeyer, I genuinely find people who take matters into their own hands fascinating.

Charles Nungesser. Ace pilot, shot to shit, kept fighting with a wooden leg, lived through the war and died at sea. I admire the hell out of Hans Rudel for much the same reasons.
My great-grandfather D'Arcey flew in WWI as an American volunteer, got shot down in France and trapped in the wreckage of his plane, and survived for days on the eggs of a chicken who nested next to his shot-up leg. Tough, mean old son of a bitch who wore a necklace made out of three of the seventeen bullets they pulled out of him and carried two more in his hip until the day he died. My granddad on my mom's side designed the engines for the re-entry stage of the Minuteman and commanded a gasoline tanker during the Japanese occupation. Doesn't matter if he was an old bitchy drunk at the end, he was a good guy and helped me get sober when I needed it.
My dad. No details but he deserves it. Same goes for my boys Kekoa and Grizz, they know what they did.
