Say what now?
Soviets were not some Vietcong-style underdogs, they were self proclaimed superpower and a next step in the development of human civilisation according to them (and only them)
The Soviets set themselves apart from the colonial west and the fact that they survived despite taking on the entire rich and powerful colonial west shows they were a group to be respected.
So many other countries folded and fell into line and followed orders and demands, but not the Soviets even to this day the Russians.
This ''muh evil colonizers'' shtick don't apply to them
The Soviets tended to get allies in the form of the broken countries the west rejected, or the strong little countries that would not bow to US bullshit... countries like Cuba and Vietnam and North Korea and Iran... they also suffered for their independence, but only because the west is a vengeful bully that holds grudges and is a nasty piece of work.
Russia should STFU
Says nobody serb on the interweb. And that is not an insult either because they wouldn't take advice from any member here... except probably Mindstorm.
Did you just try to use word Borg as an insult?
The west has created the Borg and made democracy an insult.
The most advanced civilisation in entire Start Trek mythos?
I think the analogy is spot on... they didn't develop any technology themselves... they just pinched ideas and technology from the cultures and alien species they ended up destroying...
No morals and no ethics... the only problem with it is that the west is way too preachy and judgemental to be Borg... they are more like Vulcan Borg perhaps?
But we all know the Vulcans are Jewish... just as the Klingons are supposed to be the Soviets and now Russians... but starfleet is more accepting than the western general public... a Russian would have to badmouth Russia before being accepted on a US ship.
One that everyone shits their pants when even thinking of encountering?
Very much so... who knows what the **** the Americans are going to do... whether you are on a civilian airliner just leaving Iranian airspace, or on a Japanese fishing vessel off the coast of Hawaii, or maybe on a gondola in Italy... look out... here come the Americans...
Need I say more?
Not the 1990s any more... today it is more like:
But where is Serbia... but I don't blame you... Armenia is suffering the same problems too...
Yes they should
That's how fucking up and shutting up works
And they don't either.
When your murderbots sucessfully murder people it means that your murderbots work (unlike certain Soviets/Russian subs)
The murder bots are supposed to kill enemies of America and in practise they just tend to kill random people and lots of other people nearby actually creating more enemies of the US than they actually kill so they don't work at all.
I am sure when Russia and China put their first potential murder bots into service America will suddenly realise such things need to be regulated and controlled and that international law should be created limiting their uses to only places where America wants to use them no doubt.
Easy for you to criticize now that you moved away from New Zealand and went to... oh wait, you didn’t move anywhere, you are still in good old Queen's dominion
The thing about Liz is that she is actually a very well behaved monarch... But I find it amusing you think me not running away is somehow something bad...
Runaway or don't... it is a choice.
Ironic, it's like Benji Netanyahu calling someone a kike
What is a kike?
There is 4 or 5 points in this video where the host implies that the Soviet sub has things that his boat didn't. He's basically in aw of this sub through the video. Russian subs are no joke
You will find it is internet warriors like Vann and PD who dwell on failure and defeat... it is called throwing the baby out with the bath water...
An optimist would say the glass is half full, a pessimist will say it is half empty... and an engineer will tell you you have more glass than you need so use a smaller one and fill it up.
