Deserter? I don't follow.

He bailed on his SEALs team to go fight in Ukraine for free?

I posted the full article awhile back:


Navy SEAL Deserter Killed During Intense Ukraine Battle​

Daniel Swift, a former American special operator, died while fighting alongside the Ukrainian military

A FORMER AMERICAN special operator died early Thursday morning after being wounded days before fighting alongside the Ukrainian military during intense combat in the eastern frontline city of Bakhmut.

Daniel Swift, 35, lived mostly in the Pacific Northwest and served as a Navy SEAL. The U.S. Navy told Rolling Stone on Friday that Swift is currently designated as an active deserter, and has been since March 2019.



There's a guest on Sky News that's an old British professor/military analyst or something. On his intro he always brings this up, he's like - it's day 289 of Putin's 3 day war, then he gets into the segment :rofl:



the fact that the F117 had such a good performance for tech developed in the 70s is mind bending.

kinda works with the idea that each time there is a special new plane, they kinda go for it 100%, then use that new tech to make production versions.

The F35 is basically the Model T of stealth aircraft. And The Model T is 100x more effective than the best they could muster.

The shootdown of the F-117 in Serbia is worth a watch







FRANKFURT, Jan 24 (Reuters) - German defence group Rheinmetall (RHMG.DE) could deliver 139 Leopard battle tanks to Ukraine if required, a spokesperson for the company told media group RND.
