You Gotta Love ‘Em

When I woke this morning my brain immediately went to “What am I going to blog about today?” Then when I saw these two videos the choice was clear. They made me smile and I like things that make me smile.

I’m no military expert, and I don’t know the inside scoop about what’s really happening on the battlefield in Ukraine, but my sense of things tells me Ivan is in the shit. When one considers that in 1940 it only took six weeks for Germany to conquer France, Belgium, and the Netherlands (France had at the time the largest standing army in the world, 5 million men);  why can’t Russia with its huge airforce and massive numbers of troops and armored vehicles force a Ukrainian surrender?  The answer is obvious and it’s written all over these two scallywags’ faces. These guys using an ancient motorcycle and some vodka, ripped off a Russian heavy mortar and then posted a video about it. In the other image, a farmer uses his American-made John Deere tractor (“Nothing runs like a Deere”) to tow an obviously abandoned Russian air defense vehicle. You can’t make this stuff up. These Ukrainians are tough, fearless, funloving, and obviously enjoy getting one up on the Russkies. God Bless them and give them the strength and skill to prevail.

I found both of these videos on the web and will provide links below

    Pretty ballsey! Hope they took out the crew members also. Then again, maybe the Russians had had enough of this and just abandoned their equipment. Either way, good for them.

    I was thinking after reading the Immortal 32 about unity of society. Something that is lacking in the U.S.. Now I read this, see these photos and video’s of a united Ukrainian society fighting a common cause. I pray something like the Ukrainians are experiencing isn’t what it is going to take for our country to unite. I am sure history will reveal Ukrainian accounts similar to the Immortal 32. And, those guys who stole the Russian mortar with a smile on their faces. The Farmer towing the Russian Defense vehicle. Hilarious. God bless the Ukrainian’s. I am praying they are able to defend their country successfully from the Russians invaders.
