THREAD Re. today's expected flood of "Dear #Tito" tweets:
#OTD 25 May, is birth anniversary of former #Yugoslavia leader Josip Broz Tito. Many call it his #birthday although he has been dead for 43 yrs. I do not wish to rain on their parade, merely offer my own and my family's /2 ImageImage
THREAD to clarify, question in a PM: we were a normal & pretty ordinary non-Communist family. Not (openly) anti-Communist but not collaborating with the regime in any political capacitiy.

#Zelenskyy’s shirt featured #Ukraine #military emblem, not hate symbol”

#russian #disinformation Image
“AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. #Zelenskyy wore a #military T-shirt that featured the official #emblem for the #Ukraine #Armed #Forces. In its center, the emblem includes Ukraine’s official coat of arms.
The image on his shirt did not match the #Iron #Cross or any hateful symbol, according to historians and #extremism experts.”

#Ukraine #murdered the people of #Donbass and #Lugansk? Falsehood” Image
‘It was not #Ukraine that #murdered the people of #Donbass and #Lugansk

Sometimes anti-#Ukrainian #propaganda uses falsehoods – e.g. #fabricated documents or photos, through which it gives a completely new, #untrue context – or simply untruth.
This is the case here. In the post we read that the current Ukrainian authorities "#murdered the #people of #Donbass and #Luhansk due to their #ethnic origin."

In this thread, we'll explore the reasons behind the establishment & dispersal of #Army #cantts throughout the country. Image
1. #India has long desired to target Pakistan's strategically located cantonments, which are critical for the country's defense. However, due to Pakistan's well-planned cantonments, Indian attempts of harming Pakistan were stopped in their tracks. Image
2. Now, the social media negativity is being used to peddal the age-old Indian desire of shaking this stalemate, albeit using PTI social media machine. Old wine in New packaging.

1/6 #Armenia and the #CzechRepublic will cooperate in the military sphere. The #Armenian government has started the process of ratifying the agreement "On military-technical cooperation between the governments of Armenia and the Czech Republic".

2/ It was signed in 2010, but it was not ratified for 13 yrs. The reason may be #Russia's threats. 🇷🇺 had a monopoly in the military sector of 🇦🇲 both in the supply of weapons, in the field of #military edu. Accord. to SIPRI, in 2011-2020, 94% of 🇦🇲's weapons were supplied by 🇷🇺.
3/ However, losing the war against #Ukraine, #Russia cannot sell weapons to Armenia. Russian military-industrial companies are under sanctions. And Russian weapons are a real curse for Armenia, which does not want to have problems with the West.

Warum die BW zu viele Generale/Admirale hat.

Der Ursprungsthread war ja mit einem Hauch Sarkasmus versehen. Aufgabe: Gib ein Statement was triggered!

Du kannst ja MC nicht mit BW vergleichen - dies, das. 2/n

Sicherlich hinkt der Vergleich. Die Aufgaben und auch die Fähigkeiten sind nicht gleich. Lediglich der Personalkörper ist von der Gesamtstärke vergleichbar. Und das ist ja schonmal was. Denn ganz egal ob wir uns mit LV/BV befassen oder mit Expeditionary warfare, es 3/n

#Germany: As @nld_37 has mentioned, #Bundeswehr is taking on a structural reform in #Army (#Heer). This is essential not only for Germany, but also for the allies of Germany. On one hand, @Deutsches_Heer is becoming more mobile, but this comes with a price - a hefty one 1/
German Army is going to have only three "heavy" brigades, i.e. with #Leopard and #Puma battalions. Another one is the Dutch 43 Mech. Further three will be "medium forces" / Mittlere Kraefte based on Boxer APC. Not only the Franco-German brigade and 23 Mountain, but also 2/
21 Mountain. While this will improve mobility of German Army, even after provision of full equipment for the Army, #Germany will have very limited capability when it comes to "schwere" (heavy) forces. This has certain implications for NATO posture... and for Poland 3/

"Seamos realistas, pidamos lo imposible" gritaban los melenudos del mayo del 68. Ahora están todos calvos y dirigiendo la @UN 🇺🇳

No veo otra explicación para que 193 países firmarán los "imposibles" Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible (#ODS) 2030 😅

¿Los vemos desde el arte🖌️? Image
Los #ODS son objetivos para vivir en un planeta que parezca humano 🫂🌏🫂

Un mundo sin hambre, sin discriminación, sin injusticias, sin cambio climático... 😳

¿Utopía o una noche loca de los de la ONU? 🤪
Agradezco el homenaje al cubismo con cuadraditos de colores para representar cada objetivo... muy milenial pero poco atrayente 😓

¿Y si usamos obras de arte universales, como universales son los objetivos, para representar a cada uno de ellos? 🤔

NEWS 🧵: I've filed a federal lawsuit against @WestPoint_USMA over its (and the other service academies') policy of denying FOIA requests related to Army's athletic department.

I explain more in @Sportico today:…

#sportslaw #journalism #NCAA #Army
In 2015, Army followed in the footsteps of Air Force and Navy, by petitioning Congress to allow it to spin off its athletic department as a separate nonprofit organization—Army West Point Athletic Association (AWPAA)—which would then manage its NCAA sports programs.
Since then, it has asserted that its entire athletics operation is outside the bounds of the Freedom of Information Act. Though secrecy was perhaps not its main rationale for seeking to privatize athletics, it seems to have been treated as at least an ancillary benefit.

Continuing on the French GTIAs. Today we are looking at the Armoured focused GTIA. #ARMY #frencharmy #Military
1. The Armour-focused GTIA is constituted of a core of 1 HQ + 3 Tank Companies or 2 Wheeled gun system companies, usually taken from the same regiment.
2. Additional complements that come in the form of infantry companies, recon and artillery are then directly integrated at the battalion level and additional engineer units are also added

#MedalOfHonor Monday 🇺🇸 At about this time in 1944, a hero leads his men in a tough battle against the Japanese. Then-First Lieutenant Robert B. Nett would be wounded multiple times, even taking a shot to his neck. Amazingly, Nett survived..... /1 of X #history
He would go on to personally receive his Medal of Honor.

Nett was inspired by a family friend to join the military, originally joining the Connecticut National Guard in 1941. Unsurprisingly, his unit was activated in the wake of the attack on Pearl Harbor. /2 of X #history #Army
By 1944, he was serving with the U.S. Army in the south Pacific. He’d been in Guam that summer, but found himself in Leyte by the end of the year. / 3 of X

Since a few days have passed and thing have "relatively" calmed down, I want to comment on the optics of bringing out APCs in #Lahore Cantt. You all have seen the images go viral on this platform, and some were rightly outraged. 1/n
However, this isn't the first time #PakistanArmy brought out APCs against protesting public. Many years ago, there was a dispute between farmers and the Army over some land in #Okara. That's when this image was shot. For me, personally, it became of the most defining images 2/n
