The one thing Russia would have over Japan though would be man power. They literally could just throw troops at Japan until the Japs ran out of ammo and their swords go too dull to cut.
American: 2 million
Japanese: at least 50% of the archipelago's population.
We did the right thing nuking them into submission. If we hadn't, then I believe we would have been forced to level every major city in the invasion.
alternate history is kewl
In the meantime, I've been offered two trades for my 1911.
I've been offered another 1911, and a Glock in .45 GAP.
Fortunately I had got my edginess out halfway through sophomore year when I realized blowing up and going on rants was a terrible idea.
In an attempt to keep this firearms related, is there a place to buy adjustable competition stocks out of sheet metal? I saw a stock for a Winchester that was made out of Aluminum and had all the knobs to adjust the cheek rest, trigger pull and etc.
Here's the thing about the whole Soviet-Japanese war scenario. The Russians failed miserably in the first Russo-Japanese war back in 1904-1905. It was a major embarrassment, and showed the Japanese that they were ready to take on just about anyone. However, after the first world-war, Russia (shortly later the Soviet Union) had some understanding about prolonged conflict. When the Japanese invaded China, the Chinese were severely ill-prepared, and did not have any of the supplies needed for fighting the Japanese. This made the Japanese cocky, and again the Japanese engaged the Soviets in the Khalkhyn Gol incident. Again, the Soviets werenít ready, and were crushed by an overwhelming Japanese army.
Though both sides turned to their invaders, such as the Soviets to the Nazis, and the Japanese to the Americans, they still had their conflicts. As said before, Manchuria and much of the northern islands of Japan were under Soviet control. Had the Americans stopped their attack on Japan, and the Soviets would be tasked to invade, it wouldnít go well for either side. The Soviets were used to attacking in large numbers of shock brigades in urban, snowy or forested environments. Much of Japan is mountainous or low-lying jungles. The Soviets also hadnít mounted many sea-born invasions except for the rare conflicts on the small volcanic islands. The Soviet tactics didnít differ much from the Japanese, although their equipment was better.
The Japanese would instantaneously pull in reserves and militiamen, much like the Soviets. The Soviets would run out of supplies and be eventually forced to pull back to the shoreline, but the Japanese would lose so many men and women, that they would eventually fight to a stalemate.
TL;DR - Itís the Somme all over again
Where did I get all of this? I'm subscribed to Armchair General magazine.
So my uncle just received a loaded, unregistered revolver that was shipped like any other package in the mail yesterday... GG US Postal
Do you have to register it where you live?
Not if the gun is a Mac 10
Well, I just spent the last hour arguing with someone in the Australia Thread. Seems their only response to gun ownership is "you don't need them", and that my support of them made me look like a Conservative Redneck American
You don't need video games either. What the hell kind of argumentation is that?
Here's my belief for 'sane society' regarding motor vehicles.
- No one is allowed to have any sports cars, and instead are forced to take a train or to use a three-wheel tuk-tuk.
--This Tuk-Tuk has government mandated fuel rations which is decided on by how far your employers work site is from your home.
- Road Trips are now illegal. Highways are meant for military transport only.
Breaking any of these laws will have you excommunicated from society for being 'thrill seeking nutjob'
But seriously.... People arguing for 'sane societies' need to roll over and fuck off.
At least in australia you have animals that might be dangerous if you like spending time in the nature for longer periods of time and plenty of things to hunt.
The most dangerous animals we have in Denmark are bees and somewhat poisonus snakes. Maybe you will even see a slightly distressed looking fox if you are really unlucky, but it certainly won't maul you badly.
All animals such as Boars, Hogs, Elks, Bears and Wolves are now completely extinct here because they were hunted to extinction over a hundred years ago and now they have been removed from the list of species natural to our nature, which gives every hunter the right to shoot them on sight if spotted in Denmark, so they won't ever come back.
Seems like a damn good way to alleviate boredom
Indeed it does. Be back in a couple hours.
Did you know that while a 40 mm grenade is illegal in new york, a 37mm grenade is not? The grenades are even classified as flares!
