82 years ago, during World War 2, almost 2.4 million German soldiers died on the eastern front. The eastern front being Russia. Thousands of German tanks were also destroyed in the Russian steppes.
Not having learnt their lesson 82 years ago, a fully German crew of a German Leopard 2 tank were killed in Ukraine again. The German crew from the Bundeswehr (German Army) were operating a German Leopard 2 tank near Zaporizhzhia in Ukraine when their tank was hit by a Russian anti-tank missile. Here is a quick video.
The British who are hoping that incidents like this will prompt NATO countries to declare war on Russia were disappointed.
The German crew died more than two days ago and until today no one gives a hoot. No NATO country has even released a statement about the death of the German tank crew in Ukraine. Even the German government is keeping quiet.
Who asked them to go and get killed in Ukraine in the first place? They have our condolences, now dig a hole, throw the dead guys into the hole and move on. No one cares. That German tank crew died for nothing.
There is something basic that the Brits, the US and NATO are ignoring. They are fighting Russia inside Russia's doorstep. The Russian airforce is not only flying missions from Russian airbases but they are firing their missiles from inside Russian airspace. Russian logistics, weapons factories, fuel and ammunition are within driving range of the battle front. Russian troops are getting fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, milk and meats direct from home everyday. And they are defending Russia. Plus the Russian weapons are incredibly powerful (compared to the western weapons) and highly effective.
That German tank crew began screaming in German when they got hit. The ground on which they died would not have recognised them. They were lost. Just like they got lost in 1941.
