Russian Military Recruitment Video from NORSKK on Vimeo.

The video above is a recruiting advertisement for Spetsnaz (спецназ), the acronym for the Russian Special Operations Forces (Войска́ специа́льного назначе́).

The Sock Puppet Administration through their corporate propaganda arm claims Russia is an imminent threat to the US.

Perhaps it is, though I suspect Russua sees our interventionist policies to be an imminent threat to them. They sure seem spooked by us – given the lunatics the Oligarchy installed as President and Vice President last November, can’t blame them.

Whatever.

If we are to believe our Sock Puppet Administration that Russia is a threat, watch the video above, and consider the warrior ethic Russia embraces for its спецназ. You don’t need to understand Russian to get the point of who they want in their military.

Now, consider what we seem to be looking for in the way of recruits.

Check out this US Army recruiting video (warning – it is very painful if you were ever part of a combat arm in the US military): https://cdn.jwplayer.com/players/Pot0BbLN-XLzx33eA.html

  • Who do you take more seriously?
  • Who do you consider delusional?
  • How seriously do potential adversaries take us with our video?
  • What’s the potential for their miscalculation (or rational conclusion we are led by lunatics) when they do the same comparison?

“The Book of Isaiah is the first of the 18 “Prophetic Books”. Isaiah is the first of the six “major prophets” active between 750 BC and 450 BC. He shared his vision on the destiny of Jerusalem into and after the Exile.

The Deutero-Isaian part of the book describes how God will make Jerusalem the center of his worldwide rule through a royal savior (a messiah) who will destroy her oppressor (Babylon).

Isaiah speaks out against corrupt leaders and for the disadvantaged, and roots righteousness in God’s holiness rather than in Israel’s covenant.

Here’s Isaiah from his “Song of the Vineyard” (5:25-30):

Therefore the wrath of the LORD blazes against his people,

he stretches out his hand to strike them;

The mountains quake,

their corpses shall be like refuse in the streets.

For all this, his wrath is not turned back,

his hand is still outstretched.

He will raise a signal to a far-off nation,

and whistle for it from the ends of the earth.

Then speedily and promptly they will come.

None among them is weary, none stumbles,

none will slumber, none will sleep.

None with waist belt loose,

none with sandal thong broken.

Their arrows are sharp,

and all their bows are bent,

The hooves of their horses like flint,

and their chariot wheels like the whirlwind.

They roar like the lion,

like young lions, they roar;

They growl and seize the prey,

they carry it off and none can rescue.

They will growl over it, on that day,

like the growling of the sea,

Look to the land—

darkness closing in,

the light dark with clouds!

Their arrows are sharp,

and all their bows are bent,

The hooves of their horses like flint,

and their chariot wheels like the whirlwind.

They roar like the lion,

like young lions, they roar;

They growl and seize the prey,

they carry it off and none can rescue.

They will growl over it, on that day,

like the growling of the sea,

Look to the land—

darkness closing in,

the light dark with clouds!
