  1. Post Election Thread: Trumpschaton

    What the fuck does "fake news" even mean? It's a meaningless term tossed about by a deeply cynical and dishonest man.
  2. Post Election Thread: Trumpschaton

    If the NYT is failing and fake news, why does POTUS do interviews with it? It's like some weird game where they pretend to hate each other for the sake of making a buck off the attention each other provide.

    1990 David Glatz report on The Motor-Mechanization Program of the Red Army during the Interwar Years
  4. StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)

    I tried to read it but apparently it's posted in some really weird font that is hard to read. But seriously... Are you going to provide a translation on Tankarchives.com of your own article? Once you do, I can't wait for people to argue that you have mistranslated it in order to further your "Russian bias" agenda.
  5. Post Election Thread: Trumpschaton

    Time verified that its a fake. It's not really that big a deal under the circumstances. Trump is really good at getting people to look at whatever meaningless outrage he has provoked while he goes about his business of his political agenda, whatever it may be.
  6. Post Election Thread: Trumpschaton

    I like that he refers to Clausewitz as "a dead German guy."
  7. Post Election Thread: Trumpschaton

    And now Fox and Friends, who were promoting this story, have had to issue a correction. However, I doubt those that read POTUS twitter account will notice. http://www.newsweek.com/fox-friends-corrects-story-trump-tweeted-claiming-comey-leaked-classified-634916
