DON'T operate then! To h..ll with your ammo and your TikTok!
I wanted TikTok nuked from the first day I've heard its name! After all, isn't it counting the two seconds left to Midnight, in bad English?Ah, now it becomes clear who really wants TikTok banned....
The poor defence contractors and the even poorer.military complex!!
Yep, we're definitely getting old. I don't know if there's more sensationalism these days than there used to be, or if in our more advanced ages, we notice it more because we can more easily see through it.Maybe we're just getting old, but yes I agree that the old internet surprisingly was the better internet. When sites were written by passionate people instead of for getting the most views/monetary gain.
Yeah, I didn't realise that Ukraine was using it up that quickly. Now that I do know, I realise that this is more important than I had originally thought.Probably because Ukraine isn't receiving enough shells for their artillery. Although like any sane person I'm generally against war I can't say I'm against it when a country is defending itself. The solution isn't to roll over and stop shooting back.
America's artillery stockpile isn't as vast as you might imagine. Ukraine is firing 6000-7000 rounds a day which is about a third of what Russia is doing. This is because they need to ration it, not because they wouldn't be able to use more of it. The US can produce 14000 a month, so that stockpile can be depleted really really fast.
I completely agree with you. Modern forces are going completely overboard with the military tech and it's because the "defence contractors" (read: arms dealers) like Lockheed-Martin, General Dynamics and Raytheon are lobbying the governments and military commanders as hard as they can. They're "convincing" these commanders that they need only the "latest and best" for their militaries. Back in 1977, the commanders of the RCAF were adamant that the only suitable replacement for the Voodoos and Starfighters was the F-15 Eagle. Fortunately, we had one of our greatest PMs at the time, Pierre Elliot Trudeau (Justin's father). He was far too smart to believe a word that the RCAF commanders told him. He held an honest and transparent competition and it was discovered that the F/A-18 Hornet was far more suitable for the RCAF than the F-15 (and far less expensive too!).Militaries have been busy spending billions on fancy toys but now that there is an actual war and not some underfunded terrorist group they're coming to the conclusion that war hasn't changed all that much and the 'dumb' stuff still works pretty well. Like digging trenches and covering areas in artillery fire. Europe is struggling to provide battle ready tanks as nearly all of them seem to have been neglected and need some serious maintenance and factories all over the world are struggling to keep up with artillery shell production for a war between two countries. Russia is even sourcing them from North Korea of all places.
<- Oh not a American btw.
Well, as far as I'm concerned, I have no problem with nuking TikTok but if we're going to do that, Twitter and Facebook MUST be nuked along with it.I wanted TikTok nuked from the first day I've heard its name! After all, isn't it counting the two seconds left to Midnight, in bad English?
Idk. There has to be a limit on how much electricity can be produced right now in the region where ammo factory is located.If Norway doesn't have enough electricity to power everything in their country, they need to generate more. It's just that simple.
NATO already has shiploads of artillery rounds and whatever amount that Norway could produce is insignificant compared to the US output. Prove me wrong.

It's also because Zuckerberg feels threatened by TikTok and he has lobbied the US government HARD to get them to ban it.So, TikTok somehow is using all the electricity?? Not the 1000s of buildings with 1000s of GPUs doing their mining scams??
Somehow TikTok is now the new villain because, hey, it's Chinese!! And the Chinese government is so much interested in American and European trolls and influencers peddling their pathetic BS videos!
Or, it could be exactly what it seems to be, an extremely lame and dishonest excuse to take a shot at the thing that makes Mark Zuckerberg feel threatened the most, TikTok. He has enough wealth to "influence" what the media reports. This is a perfect case-in-point because this whole article is just so stupid that it would be more at home in The National Enquirer than on Techspot.Idk.

I simply dont know how many shells NATO has to give. Perhaps, they recycled a lot when the artillery that is still used in Ukraine became obsolete.
Possibly, they can't give anything until they fulfill procedures required by their laws too.
There are hundredth of thousands soldiers on each side in this war, a huge line hundredth miles long where they fight. Maybe, they have to use artillery where a newer and precise weapon could be used better, they just dont have it.
