I agree with Garry, This needs to be put in the propaganda section.
Reading this, i would not know where to start to comment on based from my own experiences within NATO and the U.S Millitary.
The U.S Millitary is very good at digging its own grave to defeat in combat. It always sees itself as an force that is unmatched in terms of skill, firepower and technology. Groslly misrepresenting the true enemy's strength and capability's. And always acts according to exactly that. This forms and very fragile glass bubble around their psyche that bursts at the first signs things are not as uncle sam advertised. And usually its already too late at this point.
In Afghanistan, Americans lost almost entire platoons in single ambushes because as soon the dying starts and command structure starts falling appart the individual american soldier is overwhelmed that things could have gone so badly while since basic training they where told they where "unmatched". And even questioning this line of "superiority" or being self-critical is seen as betrayal inside the U.S Millitary.
even when their own dead are loaded up in cargo aircraft and send back to the States they do not even question that they might have been wrong in their assumptions. even major tactical blunders and failure of leadership are ignored.
Altough, this may have also been atributed because the U.S Milltary can not keep up filling up the rotation spots for their missions in foreign country's. Americans that did their tour in Iraq and assuming they where going home, often get told they get two weeks R&R in Europe before going for another Tour in Afghanistan without prior notice. They litterally might need every breathing body, regardless of skill.
NATO troops themselves have grown disillusioned working with the U.S Millitary during the past decade of war in the middle east. NATO's Millitary's have functioned as auxillary forces to the U.S itself in its foreign adventures of course. In the field however, U.S Millitary actions often irritated and angered their NATO counterparts.
Americans are seen as violent, trigger happy. unsensitive to collateral damage and disrespectfull to others. Untrustworthy and likely to shoot you in the back if the situation demanded it from them. During my stay at Camp Holland in Tarin Kowt, Afghanistan. Dutch And Australian Troops grew a deep dislike for american forces.
If it became actual war in Europe, or in this case Ukraine. No sane NATO soldier would stand with the americans in the conflict against Donbass or even Russia. Far too much incidents already happened between EU army's and the U.S forces in mission zones.
The crippling internal issues within EU NATO countries itself is also a list that never ends.
This manual is simply pure fantasy.
If i where an U.S soldier going to Ukraine, I'd trade it in for an English-Russian wordbook and use a permanent marker to encircle "dont shoot" and "i surrender".
