Ukraine War and its metaphors — mud, rats and Western idiocy

When things begin go badly . . .


. . . for the West's proxied Ukro-Nazis, they tend to go notably poorly.


Consider the following two news blurbs.



First news item


Observe the below-cited — and seasonally predictable — picture of a weighty British Challenger tank haplessly burrowed into Ukraine's winter mud:

One might think that a skilled tank driver would know enough to avoid miring his crew in bottomless mud.



Is the depicted 'come kill me' mishap the fault of miserable NATO training?


Or is it just a representation of being at the mercy of Nazi leadership's self-initiated war with a foe that it foreseeably could not defeat?



Second news item


Quoted by non-French media sources from France's Le Figaro:



Many equipment components of Western armored vehicles and artillery systems, made from “environmentally friendly” materials, failed due to rodents during the fighting in Ukraine.


The French publication Le Figaro writes about this, citing its own sources in the ranks of the Ukrainian armed forces.


Components of Western armored vehicles and artillery systems on the Ukrainian front were chewed by mice and rats.


The French publication writes that a number of protective sheaths for electrical wires were made from corn fiber.


Naturally, rodents found such “eco-friendly” materials attractive to the taste and began to chew them. After this, the equipment began to fail.


For European manufacturers, this situation is another reason to think about whether production should always be subordinated to ideological goals abstracted from reality, or whether one should still be guided by common sense.

Given that rural Americans (for example) often have trouble with rodents chewing up cars' wiring, one would think that a manufacturer of NATO's military equipment would have the sense not to build the same flaw into its battlefield weapons.



The moral? — The Collective West is being done in . . .


. . . by our characteristically belligerent stupidity.
