    Russian models dressed as NURSES pose with soldiers to promote war
    Dressed in nurses’ uniforms from a bygone era, social media influencers and models pose by tanks in a crude effort to boost Russian war propaganda. The smiling group – called ‘Sisters for Victory’ – mingled with Vladimir Putin ’s troops as their uniforms displayed the Z sign promoting the brutal invasion of Ukraine. Online posts claimed some of the women are ‘wives and girlfriends’ of servicemen fighting in Ukraine.
    Which reminds me of this other woman/child ...

    I first saw them here a couple of days ago.

    Apparently a totally grassroots phenomena is occurring where several very pretty Russian girls have found themselves so overcome with patriotism

    that they spontaneously decided to dress up in identical old school nurse uniforms, hunt up a ride to go visit and glorify the boys on the front to a catchy little tune, and someone just happens to be following them around getting it all choreographed for video pending immediate release.

    Cringe worthy propaganda? Yes of course. But comparable to similar coming from the other camp:

    How many on PA forums have succumbed to Qanon? Many-- and I think they are somewhat representative of the new republican party. These beliefs represent an existential threat, as they are laden with atrocity propaganda. The radical left counterpart is 'me too' over reach and pronoun wars. Most on the left find it goes way too far, is largely irrelevant, and unnecessarily divisive.

    But do Q republicans and Metoo overreach on the left, mirror one another? They do, in terms of echo chambered group-think, irrational black and white thinking.

    This is the point I was making.

    Pleas note: I got your points (the first time around) from your previous posts ... Sensing now, you feel the need to re-sum up your stance on all this shit ...

    Taking (obviously what you believe) the higher ground (above it all position) on whether it be real world or forum "War" is just what i posted above - Trying to have it all is just bull shit.

    In my broad view Putin, just like Bill Ryan (overall) has let down the possibilities of world (and alternative forum) peace.

    If you think I am pro-Putin, that's kind of funny. I looked at PA the other day, for about 5 minutes, mainly to test my theory that they would automatically line up behind Putin and demonize Zelensky. Looked like it, so I left.

    Both Russia and Ukraine have valid fears that will very likely end up with a paranoid and egomaniac Putin, backed into a corner. If that happens he will start blasting Ukraine with bunker busting nukes. Who loses then, and where does that end?

    And btw, I don't think I insulted you with my opinion, so don't insult me. It's tiresome.

    Speaking tiresome ...

    I never said you backed anyone, that's my problem
    with previous posts like yours ...

    But good to see you clarified my doubts ...

    Trying to be fair, Gio, and understand other perspectives, even though I may not agree with them. I back those who are hurt by war, ignorance, poverty.

    Being fair has nothing to do with war.

    True. The unfairness, manipulation, propaganda are run-ups to war. After it starts, all anybody sees is the atrocities, ignoring how it might have been avoided, and how it might be resolved.

    WW2 would never have been an issue if Germany hadn't been forced to pay reparations for WW1. It was a tyrannical burden. Understanding that, rather than whole scale demonization of the Germans would have helped. They became the monsters, living down to expectations, in a horribly stressed atmosphere.

    I have no desire for more back and forth with you. It has helped me clarify my thoughts though, so thank you. And thank you for inferring I am diplomatic. I will take that as a compliment.
