>the Fedorov rifle
Popenker starts the video explaining how that's an automatic rifle that is about as much of a "machine carbine" as the Chaucat or the Lewis.
>I was referring to the M1 Carbine and .30 carbine, not the .276 Pedersen.
The whole idea came up in 1938 as an alternative for the 1911, and it was only intended for rear-line units.
And the AK-47 was originally intended to be an SMG, so what? Regardless of initial intent it turned into one of the most popular small US small arms in the arsenal, and the single most requested gun by allied countries from the US. It was fulfilling the role of an assault rifle regardless of its intended use.
That's basically the point I was hinting at, yeah. 7.62x39 obviously poses certain advantages, but the fact that only specialized units still make use of it implies that these advantages are, well, specialized.
since this thread is sort of about scrutinizing youtube videos, heres a neat one i found
They seem determined to do it this time. And with advances in armor and most fire fights being in the 600 meter range now that we're out of urban fighting it makes sense to go to something that can beat armor at the distance and is still relatively small.

I guess I'll bump my own thread then. Did that last post not go through?
It did, I saw it. Surely bumping is not a deleteable offense here on Julay?
Maybe I just deleted it myself, had a retard moment and forgot.
Polite sage.
Probably your post got eaten by mong db in the recent fuckup. The nosql meme strikes again.

What are you trying to do with them?
>what kind of math is involved in long range shooting?
Mostly trigonometry like your target is x MOA in size and you know it's ~ y feet tall, now calculate its distance. You might also need calculus too if you're not using a well studied cartridge like .308.

This seems like as good a thread as any for my question, does anyone have experience with mounting FLIR monoculars in front of scopes for night shooting? A friend has a problem with hogs rooting on his farm.

Chinese civil war thread Strelok 10/10/2019 (Thu) 21:22:58 No.1796 [Reply] [Last]
While the topic of a second American CW tends to come up on /k/ every now and then a possible new Chink warlord period is seldomly discussed in detail even though it would rival a burger collapse in economic and geostrategic/political significance thanks to the wonders of globohomo.

Given how much of Western semiconductor and general consumer goods manufacture is situated in Chinkland an outbreak of world war is certain to nuke all Western economies and societies save for perhaps Russia as all those IC fabs in Shenzen will suddenly no longer be able to manufacture anything for Intel, AMD, Nvidia, Walmart and the other 6 billion contractees from all over the world removing 600 trillion shekels in investments and stocks overnight on top of removing maritime trade leading to material shortages on both sides.
Albeit Chinks may appear to be an exporter they are far from autarkic with China needing considerable amounts of food and oil imports to support its massive population+industry with things that would no longer be there inna war with the west and quickly lead to widespread famine if Chink history is any indication.

Could the Communist Party retain its hold over China particularly in Urban centres which have experienced considerable amounts of soy addiction and general emasculation via bugnet+gutter oil consumption over the last few decades and in the very likely event of local warlord cliques forming which regions/communist party factions would be proper candidates for such a thing?
Would neighbouring powers try and grab summa dat clay or would they drown in Chinkfugees?
Would the PRC or any warlords try and nuke their neighbours particularly Taiwan or stick to nuking themselves and would anyone even care if they do so?

I wonder how the Konggers that were waving the Stars and Stripes felt about what the U.S did to the Kurds. Do you think they know? It's only the most recent example too.
Would they care?
Like you said it's only the most recent example, and it's not like they're unaware what the US does.
I'm pretty sure they're waving the burger flag just to further piss off chinkland, not because they actually care what the US does in some desert shithole.
Unless they were receiving direct support from the US governemnt and I was unaware of it this whole time.

>they trusted a clap
In my view they just wave the US flag mostly as a symbol for democracy and trying to get attention since most of the world doesn't really care about the situation in Hong Kong, heck they even appropriated pepe as one of their protest mascots.

Can someone explain to me how the state that produced some of the most prominent small arms manufacturers in history as well as revolutionize both the submarine and helicopter became so hostile towards these industries?

Cities will always be a necessity, since there are some things you can't do over the Internet, or things that you can do over the Internet but are cheaper to do if everything's physically close together. However, cities do not have to be nearly as fuckhueg as they are now. They don't need to be a majority of the population the way they are right now. Cities being this gigantic and packed together is a product of democracy and democratic politicians turning cities into nigger vote farms, and inflating their population through food stamps and Section 8 housing.
What would be an appropriate size for non-degenerate cities then?
Something with about 30-50,000 inhabitans tops and no skyscrapers or judeo-communist subsidized housing?
i think cities turning to shit is just an inevitability, since a city forms around ports, factories, wherever a lot of people work or buy shit. you get enough people settling there and as with anyone, there will be less Haves vs Have-nots, and well people just love spending someone else's shekels. You could delay it with very strict or outright abolishing most gibs/vote farming programs and limiting rights/privileges if someone goes on the dole, but a couple of generations will probably fall for the usual tricks down the line anyway.
Open file (241.48 KB 570x456 ClipboardImage.png)
I imagine there would still be skyscrapers. And I wouldn't think about it in terms of an absolute population, since sanitation, space efficiency, etc., are always improving, and more in terms of proportion of total population; no more than 30-40% of the total population. You can look at pictures of Detroit around the turn of the century to get a decent idea of what a non-kiked city would look like.

>but a couple of generations will probably fall for the usual tricks down the line anyway.
As long as we remain in democracy this is true, because voters have a unilateral incentive to demand gibs under democracy and politicians have a unilateral incentive to hand them out.
Take a long hard look at what states are North and West of them.

Afghanistan war: US-Taliban deal would see 5,400 troops withdraw
>The United States would withdraw 5,400 troops from Afghanistan within 20 weeks as part of a deal "in principle" with Taliban militants, Washington's top negotiator has said.

>Zalmay Khalilzad revealed details of the long-awaited deal for the first time in a TV interview after briefing Afghan leaders on the agreement. But he said final approval still rested with US President Donald Trump.

>A huge blast rocked Kabul as the interview aired. The Taliban said it was behind the attack, which killed at least five civilians and wounded dozens more. It said foreign forces were the target. The bomb targeted a residential compound housing foreigners and the Taliban said gunmen were also involved. The attack highlights fears that US negotiations with the Taliban won't end the daily violence in Afghanistan and its terrible toll on civilians.

>The militants now control more territory than at any time since the 2001 US invasion and have so far refused to talk to the Afghan government, whom they deride as American puppets.

>The deal outlined by Mr Khalilzad in an interview with Tolo News is the product of nine rounds of peace talks that have been held in the Gulf state of Qatar. In exchange for the US troop withdrawal, the Taliban would ensure that Afghanistan would never again be used as a base for militant groups seeking to attack the US and its allies. "We have agreed that if the conditions proceed according to the agreement, we will leave within 135 days five bases in which we are present now," Mr Khalilzad said.

>The US currently has about 14,000 troops in the country.

>A Taliban spokesman confirmed in a text message to the BBC that the details of the troop withdrawal as outlined by Mr Khalilzad were correct. A pullout of the remaining forces would depend on conditions, including the start of peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban as well as a ceasefire, reports the BBC's Lyse Doucet from Kabul.

>Afghan President Ashraf Ghani will study the deal before giving any opinion, his spokesman Sediq Seddiqqi said earlier on Monday. He said the government still needed proof the Taliban were committed to peace. Many in Afghanistan fear that a US-Taliban deal could see hard-won rights and freedoms eroded. The militants enforced strict religious laws and treated women brutally under their rule from 1996 to 2001.

Zimbabwe ex-president Robert Mugabe dies aged 95
>Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe's first post-independence leader, has died aged 95. He died after battling ill health, his family confirmed to the BBC. Mr Mugabe had been in hospital in Singapore since April.

>He was ousted in a military coup in November 2017, ending three decades in power. He won Zimbabwe's first election after independence, becoming prime minister in 1980. He abolished the office in 1987, becoming president instead.

>Mugabe's early years were praised for broadening access to health and education for the black majority. But his controversial land reform programme sparked an economic collapse and his latter years were marked by rights abuses and corruption.

>His successor, Zimbabwean president Emmerson Mnangagwa, expressed his "utmost sadness", calling Mr Mugabe "Zimbabwe's founding father" and "an icon of liberation".

>Mr Mugabe was born on 21 February 1924, in what was then Rhodesia. He was imprisoned for more than a decade without trial after criticising the government of Rhodesia in 1964. In 1973, while still in prison, he was chosen as president of the Zimbabwe African National Union (Zanu), of which he was a founding member.

When does the "young lad" threshold end?
25? 30?
Considering genuinely evil fucks always live to older than 80 I'd say it's something around 50 or earlier.
Kind of depressing that he died of old age.
