- The Rolling Tigers (Korea, 1950-1953) 🧵-

We already saw how the U.S. used Vietnamese superstitions and ghost stories to try to have the upper hand during the Vietnam war (1/6) #svagaiature #Korea #KoreanWar #History #Historian #UnitedStates #USA #War Image
But that wasn’t the first time the U.S. resorted to psychological warfare and scare tactics. During the Korean War the American discovered how 1950 was the year of the Tiger in the Chinese calendar (2/6)
For these reasons American tank crews were ordered tiger faces and claws on their tanks in an effort to spread panic between the enemy lines, hoping that those superstitious among the Chinese in the Korean lines would run rather than shoot a tiger (3/6) Image

governed."
@Mike_Pence "Under the Trump-Pence administration, I am proud that #America did not turn a deaf ear to the pleas of the #Iranian people, and we did not remain silent in the face of the Iranian regime’s countless atrocities."

SCOTT RITTER: Phase Three in #Ukraine
No amount of western military aid has been able to prevent #Russia from achieving its military objective of liberating the entire territories of both #Lugansk and #Donetsk as Phase Three begins.
1/
#Russia’s “Special Military Operation”, which began on Feb. 24, is entering its fourth month. Despite stiffer than expected #Ukrainian resistance (bolstered by billions of dollars of western military assistance and accurate, real-time battlefield intelligence by the U.S. and..
2/
... other #NATO members) #Russia is winning the war on the ground, and in a big way.
After more than ninety days of incessant #Ukrainian propaganda, echoed mindlessly by a complicit western mainstream media that extolls the battlefield successes of the Ukrainian armed forces..

The #UnitedStates is considering whether to send HIMARS to #Ukraine in its fight against #Russia. What is the M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) and could a deep strike precision guided munition tip the scales towards #Ukraine in the #UkraineRussiaWar?
HIMARS are capable of firing both rockets & missiles. The most common rocket is the Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System M31A1 rocket (see below) that comes in pods of 6 rockets. These rockets can travel beyond 70km (reportedly 84km) to strike targets with an accuracy of 2m.
The M31A1 rockets have a 200 pound warhead with a variable fuse that can be used in different modes to engage different target sets. This include: point detonating (explodes when it hits), proximity fuse (explodes at 3m or 10m above ground) or delay (1m or 2m delay after impact).

#Ukraine #foreignfighter number "ranges from merely several hundreds to a few thousand" per @FightExtremism report "This is dwarfed by tens of thousands of Ukrainian volunteers who joined units in Ukraine’s Territorial Defense Force (TDF)"
Per @FightExtremism report, at least 2 violence-oriented foreign extremists who traveled to #Ukraine "have been killed in the latest round of hostilities"

"Both were on the pro-#Russia side, including one who was a left-wing extremist"
