2020.10.26 20:06 Crystalidus [EVENT] The Biggest Enemy is Fear Foundation of the Crimean Army

Fight for your Traditions, Ideals and Liberty

Our lands are in danger from all sides and it is our duty to protect them with all our might. Many enemies are near us and are a constant threat to the health of the Republic and the people living in it. With every day passing and without our own defence forces we are under the risk of a Coup d'état happening in our lands or even worse - a full-on occupation.
We already saw the Red Terror happening in our lands from 1917-1918 and we must not let this repeat. We must show our determination and our hearts towards the people of our lands, to make them trust us and respect us as we are the sole force that shall protect them to the very end of our lives. We must never commit indecent acts against an enemy and instead show our superior will and respect for human lives, unlike the Soviets and the Black Army that only bring death and dread on our lands. In the end, we are the sole fortress that protects the innocent and the young of the horrors of the front.
With all this said, in these last days of his term Prime Minister Maciej Alexandrovich Sulkiewicz signs the executive order of the foundation and creation of the armed forces. With this order done lieutenant general Maciej Sulkiewicz will be stepping down from his position on November 16th and will be peacefully passing on the position to Solomon Krym making him the new Prime Minister of the Crimean Regional Government.

The Foundation - Proposed Units

Infantry:
  • 1st Infantry Battalion of Simferopol - 800 Bayonets, 24 Machine Guns
  • 2nd Infantry Battalion of Sevastopol - 800 Bayonets, 24 Machine Guns
  • 3rd Infantry Battalion of Perekop - 800 Bayonets, 24 Machine Guns
  • 4th Infantry Battalion of Yalta - 800 Bayonets, 24 Machine Guns
Artillery:
  • 1st Artillery Battery - 8 Field Guns
  • 2nd Artillery Battery - 8 Field Guns
Cavalry:
  • 1st Dragoon Squadron of Meñli I Giray - 150 Horses
  • 2nd Dragoon Squadron of Sahib I Giray - 150 Horses

The Teachers of War

With the new armed forces, we ask for Britain and France to send Advisors to teach our newly formed units in the art of warfare during these ever-changing times. Combat experience is extremely valuable at this time and we do not have the manpower nor the equipment to make mistakes an untrained army might do. There is no space for Error, as any mistake might mean the fall of Crimea. With this, we plea for help from the two great powers of Europe and hope that our call for help will get a reply.
We also ask for any spare supplies France or Britain can spare for the expansion or modernization of our soldier equipment.
Faithfully,
Crimean Regional Government
Date: 1918 November

2020.10.26 18:58 partypastor Unreached People Group of the Week - Urdu in Ireland

So I was talking with my girlfriend about how in the ideal world we could do ministry in a small Irish hamlet one day, so I found an Irish UPG!
Before getting into their unreached info, here is a fun article talking about Urdu and Irish Gaelic! contextualization.jpg
How Unreached Are They?
In Ireland the Urdu people are 0% Christian. That means out of their population of 8000 ish people, there are likely maybe a few believers or none at all.
There are full Bible translations in their language and in English.
What are they like?
Typical qualification that all people groups can't be summed up in small paragraphs and this is an over generalization.
Urdu-speaking Muslims can be found in every level of society. They are the illiterate and the educated, the poor and the money lenders, the landlords and the religious leaders.
The Urdu speakers are the descendants of immigrants who were the "cream of society" in their own countries. Some are the descendants of Arab merchants and soldiers. Others descended from Turks, Persians, and Pushtuns.
Presently, there is such diversity among the Urdu speakers that it is difficult to generalize their lifestyles. Within any given region, their differences are related to class distinctions.
Before the partition of Pakistan and India in 1947, the Urdu consisted of a wide range of economic and social classes. When Pakistan became independent in 1947, many Urdu-speaking Muslims stayed in India. While the petty merchants and laborers only noticed minor economic changes, the landholders experienced drastic changes. Middle class immigrants to the Persian Gulf and other nearby regions felt discriminated against in jobs and educational opportunities. Such immigrants tend to retain their original citizenship. The bulk of their earnings are sent back to their families in Pakistan and India. On the other hand, those who immigrate to westernized countries usually take on the citizenship of their new country. However, unless they live in neighborhoods containing numbers of other Urdu speakers, the second generation often loses contact with their native language and culture.
In rural areas, housing takes the form of a mud hut with separate living quarters for the women. Urban dwellers live in more modern houses or apartments. Urdu women are responsible for all of the household duties as well as caring for the children. They also enjoy embroidering, sewing, and visiting with other neighborhood women.
Among Urdu speaking Muslims, there is still much social pressure to "maintain honor" in all levels of their societies. Purdah (the seclusion, concealment, or unsociability of women) still exists, but to varying degrees. A woman is generally secluded from public view and is protected from "dangerous" contacts. This is done to protect either her husband's honor or the honor of her father's family. In some areas, the entire covering of the body with only an embroidered screen for vision is required. In other areas, the women are much more outspoken. They may cover just their heads and wear dark glasses to maintain a sense of privacy. In some of the wealthy, urban levels of society, purdah is losing its value as it competes with western values. Women entering professions lean toward such occupations as teaching or practicing medicine in which their students and clients will be female. Joshua Project
History Lesson
The term "Urdu" does not adequately describe the Urdu people as such, but is merely a language distinction. Urdu-speaking Muslims are not an ethnic group in the strictest sense, but are rather a collection of ethnic groups who have been widely dispersed geographically. They possess a sense of "group identity" based on cultural and historical factors: the Islamic religion, a Persian cultural tradition, the Urdu language, and the tradition of Muslim supremacy in northern India.
A majority of the Urdu speakers live in Pakistan and the northern states of India. However, in recent years, many Urdu-speaking Muslims have emigrated to the Persian Gulf and Saudi Arabia, searching for economic opportunities. Skilled laborers and highly educated professionals have also emigrated to Western Europe, North America, and the Commonwealth countries.
Urdu, now the national language of Pakistan, is an Indo-Iranian language that developed from the Hindi language. It is heavily laden with Persian and Arabic words and is written in the Persian script. Joshua Project
What do they believe?
Although the Urdu are all Muslims, this is no longer a unifying factor. There are intense differences among the various Muslim sects (the Hanafites, Shafiites, and Ithna-Asharis).
Since entire communities tended to migrate together, different Islamic sects are found in different countries. For example, in Turkey and South Africa, the Urdu speakers are almost completely Sunni Muslims; whereas in Canada and in Pakistan, they are almost completely Hanafite Muslims. Joshua Project
How Can We Pray For Them?
Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. (Romans 10:1)

2020.10.26 18:43 AmericanNewt8 Boned: Problems (but not too many) in the US Air [and Space] Force!

No. You don't frighten me, Mollari. If you try to go up against our forces, you'll lose.
Yes, your ships are very impressive in the air, or in space--but at this moment, they are on the ground.
Right--they're on the ground. But they can sense an approaching ship from miles away. So what are you going to do, Mollari, blow up the island?
Actually--now that you mention it--[pulls detonator from pocket]
No!
[presses detonator]
Babylon 5, explaining the vulnerability of aircraft to ground attack in typical hammy fashion
Hello, and welcome to another episode of "AmericanNewt8 explains the global military situation at present in a convenient, possibly easy-to-read guide". Maybe I should make a YouTube channel or something. All the cool kids [and a lot of idiots who know nothing about military equipment] are doing it. Anyway, today we have the US Air [and, for the moment, Space Force--they haven't fully separated yet], and, surprisingly for once, a somewhat more positive message. I'm sorry this one took so long; I've been busy for the past month or so, but I figured I should get this one out I already had 80% done before talking about Turkey and the war in the Caucuses, which are likely to be shorter, more current, and arrive sometime in the next week if all goes as planned.

Current Effortposts In My Series:
  1. What you [might] need to know about South Korea's ludicrous arms buildup
  2. We shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches.... uh, what do we do after that again?: The Perilous Defensive Position of Taiwan
  3. "You've hit another cargo ship? The Problems with the US Navy: Not all of them begin with "Seven" and end with "th Fleet"."
  4. Will China's PLAN survive contact with the enemy?
  5. Biden's New START and modern nuclear war
  6. Boned: Problems (but not too many) in the US Air [and Space!] Force
  7. Erdogan Sallies Forth [inserted largely on account of the recent breakout of a war between Armenia and Azerbaijan]
  8. Begun, the Drone Wars Have: Why You Should Pay Attention To This "Tiny" War
  9. First And Last Stand Of The Tin Can Navies [ASEAN + Australia and the smaller adversaries China may contend with]
  10. --Unnamed-- effortpost on Japanese military matters, mostly about how weird the JSDF status is
  11. --Unnamed--effortpost on Indian military matters, and why they can't focus on China or buy anything that works
  12. --Unnamed--effortpost on the rest of the PLA, mostly the air force though
  13. --Unnamed--effortpost on the rest of the US Armed Forces, mostly talking about how the marines are changing and the Army's new love affair with INF-busting weapons
  14. Conclusion?

1. Our Pride And Joy

America's Navy may be its key instrument of power projection abroad and in some ways the most important service branch, but the one that is by far the greatest beneficiary of American skill, the apex of our capabilities, is without a doubt the US Space Force. From Day 1 the US has had a commanding lead in the field. Mind you, that's not saying that nobody's ever challenged or exceeded the US in limited areas for limited periods of time--the early 1950s were about the last time that happened though [aside for commercial launch vehicles from around 1980-2010]. In the modern era, it is very rare that buying something other than an American-made aircraft or rocket makes any sort of economic or strategic sense [political is of course a different matter entirely]. The US Air Force has generally benefited from high, consistent levels of investment and has had relatively light burdens placed on it operationally [though in recent years post 9/11 this has changed to an extent], and it has developed into one of the best-trained and most doctrinally sophisticated forces in the world. More on that later. Anyway, the Air Force is probably the best-loved branch politically [Marines might be more respected but they get budgetary scraps], at least of the military as a whole, and it ends up with more funding, smarter people, and a much better QOL as a result. In fact Air Force personnel are usually treated to quite a bit of envy and ribbing about how much better their conditions are than their Army, Marine, or Navy counterparts.

2. Aging Equipment [again!]

Guess what? The same problem that seems to afflict most of the US military [and, for that matter, most European, Latin American, and non-East Asian militaries] is aging equipment from the Cold War finally wearing out. In the Air Force, this takes a number of different forms. Often, it's a case of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it", but even then airframes do wear out eventually and need replacement and a lot of them are getting to that point.
Logistics, Support, That Kind of Thing
One of the least glamorous parts of the Air Force, logistical and support capabilities are rapidly aging. The primary airframe the Air Force uses for these is the.. wait for it... Dash 80, as the C-135 whose commercial variant is better known as the Boeing 707. It was a very impressive aircraft, but it was designed in the 1950s. Even though we've reengined the C-135 with more modern engines, and done some serious overhauls, they're getting pretty long in the tooth. Most notably we have the 398 KC-135 Stratotankers which make up the bulk of the US midair refueling fleet, which are joined by 31 E-3 Sentry AWACs, a number of specialized RC-135 derivatives doing everything from SIGINT to hunting for nuclear weapons and 17 E-8 Joint STARS. While these were produced up until the early 1990s, the airframes are aging and they need replacements, and the sheer quantity of aircraft is likely to cause trouble. There are also other aircraft that have to be replaced in the mid-term [by the early 2040s] like the C-5 Galaxy and the KC-10 Extender, but these are somewhat less of an immediate concern. There are some C-130 Hercules replacements also needed but those are largely being done with newer versions of the same aircraft.
Bombers
The B-1 Lancer is first on the chopping block, due to high maintenance costs and time [it generally takes 120 hours of maintenance for an hour of flight time]. That represents 60 bombers, on paper anyway, and a good chunk of the USAF's supersonic strike capability. However, cutting it should free up resources for new hardware, and in fact new USAF budget proposals suggest rapidly retiring the B-1. The B-2 Spirit is also on the chopping block due to high price and high maintenance demands, but it can't really be replaced until the B-21 Raider shows up. There is also a need to find a replacement for the B-52, but nobody is really sure what that looks like and it's much less urgent--the B-52 will soldier on for the indefinite future and may well hit a full century in operational service. Even if one runs into the "airplane of Thesus" the fact that you could well have fourth or fifth generation B-52 pilots flying on 90-year-old aircraft is, to be honest, kind of neat.
Fighters
The F-15 and F-16 originally took flight in the 1970s and are still seeing interest today, though the modern F-15 and F-16 are very different beasts from their originals. However, the overall fleet is starting to age--primarily the F-15C fleet operated by the US Air National Guard which does air policing in the US. This is why the Guard is actually first in line for new F-15EX aircraft and has even received brand new F-35s [that, and the fact that the Air National Guard is actually pretty integrated with the Air Force]. F-16s are also starting to wear out; the USAF still operates over a thousand of the type. They are set to primarily be replaced with the F-35, though, with around 1500 aircraft on order. They will also replace the A-10 [along with drones, I suppose], and I'll take a moment to say that the A-10 is heavily overrated, there's a reason the USAF wants to dump it, and it's notorious for friendly fire incidents. Its job would be better done by drones or even aircraft like the Super Tucano.
Trainers
These are, guess what, also wearing out. The USAF currently operates over 500 T-38 Talon trainers, but it already has a replacement lined up for this aircraft which was first flown in 1959. It just adds to the list of things that need replacing.
ICBMs
Also should mention these, I suppose. The US is currently operating the Minuteman-III) as its sole ground-based nuclear deterrent/ICBM, and these 1970s-era missiles have survived their replacement, the LGM-118 Peacekeeper. They have to be replaced as well, and the USAF actually recently awarded a contract to do so to Northrop Grumman [though there are issues with that mentioned below].
Maintenance
One side-effect of all this is that the Air Force has increasingly high demands for maintenance which are simply not met, which combined with a shortage of maintainers [partially due to good outside pay but mostly because anecdotal reports suggest life as an Air Force maintainer is terrible] means that the Air Force has a poor readiness rate, especially because a lot of airframes aren't in good condition to begin with, having been worn out by decades of use.

3. Procurement Woes... fixed?

So, the Air Force has had a pretty troubled history with procurement in recent years. By far the most infamous one is the F-35. Well, yes, the F-35 was a procurement disaster. Another Redditor has done a great service by writing up the account Ash Carter [Secretary of Defense under Obama] gave of the program. It's long [full version here] and probably doesn't give a full account as it is Carter's memoir--but I'll just pick out one of the most significant parts of it:
At one point of the meeting, after we'd made it abundantly clear that the grossly inflated price for the JSF jets was unacceptable, CEO Bob Stevens casually said to me, "Well, if you tell me how much money you have, I'll tell you how many planes you can buy."
I was taken aback. Rather than negotiating a fair price with us, Stevens was behaving as if his company were entitled to all the money the taxpayers could afford. And although he obviously had a per-plane price in mind, he didn't care to divulge it openly, nor would he agree to a fixed-price contract holding him to it. I found this cavalier attitude offensive. With deeper disrepute, the JSF program would go down the political drain, and we wouldn't be able to buy any of these needed aircraft.
With all this in mind, I let his question hang in the air unanswered for a moment. Then I replied, "How about none?" With that, I walked out of the room. "None" was a reasonable prediction in the political climate surrounding this out-of-control program.
However, the F-35 was a pretty uniquely messed up procurement program due to suffering from what I'd broadly call "jointness", where interservice procurement made things less efficient.

The Air Force on its own has had some pretty impressive procurement messups though. Look no further than the KC-46 Pegasus, a tanker designed to replace the KC-135 [as mentioned above loads of these are getting retired in the next couple years]. The first sign of trouble probably should have been when the first program to replace the tankers with the KC-767 [now the KC-46] was cancelled on account of a bribery scandal involving the CFO of Boeing offering the procurement official an executive position. The second sign probably should have been the whole bit where, unlike its competitor, the A330 MRTT, the KC-767 didn't actually exist. And when the A330 won the contract bid, Boeing of course protested and, ultimately, got the contract evaluated again, with [at least per Northrop Grumman's claims, who was running a joint bid with Airbus] requirements rigged for the KC-767, and, finally, almost a decade after the program started, Boeing won the bid.

Except there was the small problem that Boeing hadn't built the plane yet, which turned into a large one. Ultimately the program was marred by years of delays and major technical problems. It only recently finally began delivering aircraft to the Air Force, years late and over-budget [though the USAF did manage to claw quite a bit of it back from Boeing].

However, there are some positive signs that future procurement will be better. Besides the F-35 being saved, there's the example of the T-X program, which is to replace the elderly T-38 Talon trainer. It invited foreign competition to the field, featured vigorous competition, and resulted in an actually effective aircraft--developed by both Boeing [of course] but also Saab--yes, the Swedes have a significant hand in the trainer jet likely to equip much of the world.

In particular, something very interesting the US Air Force is doing is diving heavily into computer design and open systems architecture. What this means, in short, is that they'll design new planes with a heavy emphasis on doing detailed computer design and simulation, only finally building an aircraft to demonstrate it works IRL--which of course cuts costs substantially--and they'll try to build common hardware and software that will work in any number of aircraft. The overall idea is to make aircraft inexpensive, easy to design, and modular. The Air Force even has a buzzword for this already, the "Digital Century Series", referring to the last time the Air Force very rapidly built a whole bunch of aircraft on a relatively common hardware platform. Whether this will bear fruit remains yet to be seen.

4. Fighting the Peer Conflict

The USAF, for the past thirty years, has not faced a peer competitor. Arguably it didn't even face one before that--the Soviet Air Force was no match for what the USAF could field, as was demonstrated quite well in a number of conflicts. The good news is that the USAF has had a long time to build up a lead, and is still far ahead of China or Russia, further ahead than the Army or Navy is by a long shot--Americans like their planes and electronics. For an illustrative example, China'sJ-20 stealth fighter has been produced in a quantity of... 50; while the USAF has almost 200 F-22s and is ordering over a thousand F-35s. The Su-57 barely even flies and is nowhere near peer to what the United States can field despite whatever scary articles you might have read. The bad news is that only recently has the USAF actually begun preparing to fight a peer conflict, which will tax it in different ways.

The main vulnerabilities the Air Force has in a peer conflict are more logistical and operational than regarding the quality of its aircraft or pilots, which are moreless unmatched. The first problem is that readiness isn't fantastic thanks to the War on Terror burning through all the ancient Cold War aircraft that the USAF has operated, and yes, aircraft do wear out. In fact, large numbers of F-15Cs operated by the US Air National Guard have been grounded due to age and fatigue. The shortage of maintainers also plays a role here. There's also the problem that the US Air Force is still quite vulnerable on the ground in any peer conflict; especially to precision strikes with ballistic and cruise missiles--the US Air Force has downsized considerably and now only has a handful of bases for both political and budgetary reasons, but that means that, when facing, for instance, China, the USAF must rely heavily on just six airfields--Osan, Kunsan, Misawa, Yokota, Kadena and Andersen [maybe bring that to 9 by adding USMC and Navy installations, which field fewer and less capable aircraft].

Thus, the primary challenge that the USAF faces is a quiet one--ensuring that it can operate from dispersed locations, at high opstempo, and repair its facilities rapidly. This is really also the biggest question mark in terms of the USAF's performance, but there's some reason to be optimistic here--the USAF is aware of the threat and is actually working to solve it. However, ultimately only changes in the political environment [the addition of bases in the Philippines or Palau, or the development of readied airfields in Japan] will fix the basing problem. Better ballistic missile defense will probably also help here. Russia or China will probably have poor luck against the USAF in the air; seeking primarily to deny the USAF free reign and thus the ability to support ground offensives, but they could cause significant damage by hitting ground facilities, and everyone knows it.

There's also the question of surface-to-air missiles; which have driven quite a bit of concern the past few years as China and Russia field increasingly capable systems like the S-400 and HQ-9. It is feared that the sophistication of these weapons could create "A2/AD bubbles" where the USAF and USN are unable to operate. While the access bubble does still look quite real for the Navy, recent developments have seriously called the efficacy of surface-to-air missiles into question--particularly the fact that the Israelis and Turks seem to be able to almost ignore them, or at least their shorter-range counterparts. The destruction of Armenian S-300 launchers by Azerbaijan with Turkish drones is certainly an ominous signal for anyone thinking advanced air defenses would keep them safe. How good the full-scale systems are against conventional targets is still unknown, but my guess is much less effective than the marketing--and keep in mind that despite years of concerns, SAMs have only been successful from about 1960-1980, and even then relatively minor adjustments in strategy seemed to significantly mitigate damage--so it's unclear how concerned we should actually be about such technology.

There are also questions about whether or not the USAF is operating the right mix of aircraft for the job, and these are valid ones. The USAF is buying new F-15EX, which has literally been described as not survivable after 2028 [though there is a case for the plane as a carrier of standoff weapons or a homeland defense fighter], and still operates the A-10 [an aircraft now mostly known for a number of notorious blue-on-blue (friendly fire) incidents] which, if used in a modern environment where the USAF didn't have total air supremacy, would simply not be able to survive. Yes, there's a reason the USAF wants to scrap the A-10, and no, the GAU-8 is cool but it doesn't even kill columns of modern main battle tanks. Unless you're primarily planning on fighting North Korea, the A-10 is close to useless(ly dangerous). The B-1 has also been highlighted as obsolete, largely due to high maintenance costs. However, the USAF is working hard to scrap these aircraft as fast as politically feasible.

5. New Technologies

The Air Force has always had a certain inclination towards adopting the newest, shiniest technologies, and at the moment there are a number of interesting concepts that it is exploring. I'll talk about two of the most significant ones [especially combined] here.

First, the Air Force is seeking to create future aircraft entirely virtually--using highly detailed computer models to design numerous types of specialist aircraft, and only building prototypes to test the results that simulations produce. Their latest trainer, the "eT-7", uses this methodology--the "e" is supposed to designate that it was designed this way. There's also a move towards using common avionics and software for a variety of different aircraft. Figures high up at the Pentagon have discussed a "Digital Century Series", modeled after a chain of fighters rapidly developed in the 1950s for a number of different roles, from the F-102 interceptor to the F-105 fighter-bomber. This could potentially create numerous new aircraft rapidly; a shift back towards the times before the 1990s where a single fighter project took the entire attention and budget of the Air Force. Nobody is really sure how this will pan out but it looks quite promising. In particular, the fact that the USAF was able to take its new prototype fighter jet into the skies a year after it was originally envisioned is stunning--and suggests that this potential return to the old days of the 1940s and 1950s when new aircraft showed up every year is not just a pipe dream.

Second, the Air Force is investing in UCAVs [Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles], most notably in the Skyborg concept. The goal is to develop a low-cost drone that can both deliver additional weapons to target while being accompanied by a manned fighter--a sort of drone wingman, which is cheap enough to be expendable [thus serving a secondary purpose, soaking up enemy air to air missiles]. Numerous companies have been awarded contracts to develop UCAVs and this program is looking quite promising, so expect to hear more of it in the future.

6. Drones

Drones are a rather interesting topic and one that I'll most likely get into more detail in on my next two posts specifically regarding Turkey. The US was one of the pioneers of UAVs, with the other big player in the field being Israel--in fact the US has bought Israeli drones from time to time, though of course China and Russia have also established a presence, without even mentioning Turkey. The US has a number of drones for different purposes--largely for reconnaissance of different types and precision-strike capability. It has the RQ-4 Global Hawk, for reconnaissance, the MQ-9A Reaper, for strike missions, and the RQ-170, which.... well, probably something involving reconnaissance, it's half-CIA so who knows. However, the US may not have kept up on the ongoing drone revolution, which is actually something I can't really blame them for since the 'revolution' only started in January. Yes. Last January.

This 'revolution' began on January 5, 2020, to be exact, and was led by an unlikely candidate: Turkey. They say necessity is the mother of invention, and this was certainly the case for the Turkish drone program. After the US refused to sell Turkey drones on account of the fact that they might be used against Kurds [use of Turkish drones suggests they definitely are used against Kurds], Turkey decided to make their own drone program with blackjack and hookers--or, well, just drones. Their DIY effort didn't really garner much attention until sent to Libya,but investment in their program skyrocketed, largely for two reasons. First, Turkey has been largely barred from major hardware acquisitions from the US and, to an increasing extent, Europe. Second, Erdogan deeply distrusts the Turkish Air Force and has dramatically cut pilot numbers through his multiple purges of the service. Third, Turkey is competing out of its class, against Russia, the UAE, and other major regional powers.

Once it arrived in Libya, it suddenly became clear that the Turkish drone program was much more important than previously thought. In many ways it bore the primary responsibility for turning the war around from what looked to be almost certain defeat for the UN-recognized GNA into a state where whether or not Haftar could survive was in question. In particular, it came as a great shock to most how easily Turkey defeated the very systems that were designed to shoot down UAVs--the Russian Pantsir in particular, which has been destroyed in great quantities with few Turkish casualties to show for it--and with the sticker price for a Turkish drone less than half of the Pantsir systems they kill, it could well revolutionize warfare. Experiences in Syria, and now in Armenia, where Turkish drones have destroyed hundreds of main battle tanks and casually destroyed SAM systems from some distance above, continue to bring into question just how vast the drone revolution is going to be. I'll cover this in more explicit detail in my next two posts.

However, the USAF is watching and learning--its main difficulty with drones is more political than anything. Drones are often considered less important than manned aircraft by a leadership that largely flew manned aircraft [particularly fighters at that], and it is the bottom tier of officer recruits that fly drones [though, interestingly, some drones are actually flown by enlisted pilots] and even then there's usually a shortage of RPA pilots--that's why a few are flown by enlisted in the first place. Whether or not they'll take these lessons to heart, only time will tell, but the history of the Air Force leaves me relatively optimistic on the matter--more than many other services, it's willing to embrace change.

7. Nukes

The US Air Force runs two legs of the nuclear triad--the air and ground portions. The first is dominated by, believe it or not, gravity bombs--mostly the B61. This weapon has been sitting around in the United States [and Europe under nuclear sharing, in Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy, Germany, and Turkey] for a while now, the first variants being made in 1968, and has recently been updated to the latest B61-12 variant, which offers high precision [as precise as JDAMs, not that it's likely to matter in most situations where nukes are being dropped] and flexibility--the bomb can be deployed from low altitudes at high speeds, and from within the internal weapons bay of the F-22 and F-35 [not to mention the B-2 and future B-21], so it's not as dumb as it might sound. Air-launched weapons also have useful features like the ability to recall them once launched, which isn't an option for missiles, along with fitting into doctrine for a tactical nuclear war. While I could go on about the lack of air-launched nuclear cruise missiles [which hopefully will be fixed by the end of the Intermediate Forces Treaty] it's not a big deal.

The main concern here [and perhaps a suggestion that procurement is still messed up] is the ground-based deterrent, which currently consists of a few hundred Minuteman III missiles buried in the northern central United States. These missiles, like much of the Air Force, date to the 1970s and have outlasted their supposed replacement--the MX Peacekeeper. These missiles are finally approaching end of life and are to be replaced by a new ICBM system. This process is... problematic. First off, it was a sole-source bid because Northrop Grumman acquired Orbital ATK Systems, the primary American producer of solid-fuelled rockets and missiles, and this resulted in Boeing pulling out of the competition. Second, the cost seems rather high, at least in my view, with lifetime cost estimates of as much as $90 billion, with development alone amounting to $13 billion at sticker price. It positions the cost of rebuilding the ground-based deterrent as comparable to the US Navy's program to replace the Ohio-class submarines with the Columbias. The ground-based deterrent has also lost substantial importance as sea-launched and air-launched weapons have become much more accurate and capable of fulfilling the ground-based counterforce mission [which arguably died with Peacekeeper], and it remains the most vulnerable portion of the triad. What good it does is largely as another independent nuclear deterrent and one that soaks up enemy warheads in the event of nuclear war that could be directed towards other targets. A disastrous procurement here could cause problems for the Air Force you will see in the future. My suggestion would be either to continue modernizing the Minuteman IIIs or aim to replace them with the cheapest option possible--something like, for instance, a land-based Trident missile [as if the Air Force would ever allow such a thing to be built]. All the ground-based deterrent needs to do is be there, be a credible threat, and soak up enemy fire. That's it.

8. Space Force

The Space Force is now its own service branch, but as it really hasn't emerged yet I'll cover it here. In fact, just recently, the Space Force enlisted its first trainees. This is somewhat less in my area of expertise; but at the moment things look fairly promising. While the Space Force sounds silly it's almost certainly the part of the military you interact with the most in your daily life on account of running the GPS network. They also operate a variety of communications satellites and the system for monitoring ballistic missile launches, among other pieces of hardware. Expect to hear more about these guys in the future, as space becomes a potential battlefield--we've seen the deployment of a space-based anti-satellite weapon by the Russians just recently, and numerous powers now field anti-satellite missiles along with jamming equipment that can blind reconnaissance satellites, so space is becoming much more militarily important. I don't have much more to say about these guys at the moment, though, other than noting that they're already talking about being even "less physical" than the Air Force--translation: Less mandatory exercise--and they're teaching classes about space law, which is neat I guess. The main downside of the Space Force is that it's going to be very small, around 20-30,000 people, which is half what even the Coast Guard fields, and that could lead to problems with maintaining personnel and inefficiencies with redundant missions, procurement, and the like.

9. Conclusion

The USAF has problems; particularly with aging equipment and manpower, but it seems to realize that most of them exist and is moving to address them. Political constraints mean that the USAF is stuck supporting a variety of obsolete platforms and investing its large budget poorly in new ICBMs and poorly managed tankers, and procurement continues to be a struggle for the USAF, though nowhere near as bad as with the US Navy. Drones have the potential to revolutionize warfare and the USAF is working to develop capabilities in that area, albeit maybe not as fast as some other players in the field, and digital design promises more aircraft designed and produced faster--much, much faster. The USAF faces logistical challenges in a peer conflict, but nothing insurmountable--though the work there is likely to be painful and sidelined because it's less interesting than buying shiny new toys. The Space Force seems to be going along well though they could face some problems in the medium term from losing access to the USAF's resources--political, financial, and of personnel--until/unless they develop into a larger, more influential service. On the whole, though, the outlook for the USAF, at least, looks quite bright--a hope spot, along with the Army and Marines, that the serious problems of the Navy will not cripple the entire military capability of the United States.

2020.10.26 18:40 davewood95 My [34 M] girlfriend [34 F] of 7 months wants me to move with her in another city (2.5 hrs drive away) next summer, to get closer to her parents and sister who live there + who can help her raise a child we'd like to have. Is she asking too much?

tl;dr: Girlfriend wants me to move 2.5 hours away with her where her family lives so that we can have a child there. I do not feel financially or emotionally ready for this, as her family's presence will overwhelm my feeling of independence. Girlfriend agreed to stay where we are, but is having doubts after her family pressures her to change her stance. Is her uncertainty a red flag and deal-breaker?
I have been dating this woman since March. We love each other and everything seems to work great. We both own our own homes, and live together at each other's home, switching every home every week or so. We do want to move in together next year. This would require us both selling our homes and buying a new one together:
She understand the financial stakes and the emotional baggage of moving on from past relationships and we've agreed that it's best to start fresh - we both sell our homes, and we use both our capital to make a large down payment to buy a new home we pick, chose, design and live together next year. We also agreed that we shouldn't have a child until we live under the same roof, to minimize time and financial expenses related to maintaining two homes.
She previously mentioned how she'd love to one day live in her parents' neighborhood, since they also live close to her sister (32F) and brother-in-law (30ish?M) who are trying to have a child. As my girlfriend (34F) would also like to try for a child sometime next year or the year after, she'd love to have her child grow up surrounded by her extended family. Her family is very tight, and the parents frequently pop-in at her sister's place for dinner, or her sister regularly eats at her parent's place, as they live within cycling distance.
On the other hand, my girlfriend and I live 2.5 hours drive away from her family.
We met here, not there, we live here, and our careers are here, not in her family's city. During this pandemic, we've had the privilege to work from home, and this privilege may continue for the foreseeable future, so we may or may not be able to continue working from her family's city, but even if we could, I don't think I'm comfortable moving, at least not yet.
She may be okay with her family popping in our homes several times a week, but I'm not. Once a weekend? Sure. Multiple times a week? No. I also do not know anybody in her family's city. I do not have any family, friends, or contacts there. I have a network here, and building a new network in my 30s is hard. If for whatever reason I need to look for a different job, it would be very difficult for me (much more than for her due to our jobs) to find another job without going back to my previous city. Add to the stress of not only moving into a new house and being in an uncertain employment situation by moving, it would be my first time trying to raise a child - surrounded by her family who will obviously always take her side in case of a a disagreement between us.
So I told her moving right away would not be working out. We need to look for a home in our own city first, raise our own family ourselves, and then we can consider moving closer to your parents and sister, but as our own family, not as their family + the "string-along boyfriend". She agreed - she told me she wants to make a family with me, not with her parents and sister with a side help of me.
Everything was great and we start browsing homes for sale in our city. A few of them seem to please both of us, so we're already hopeful to start making offers on the market next year. But then she just came back from a weekend at her family, in which I exceptionally preferred not to join (harsh COVID travel restrictions in my region). Her family is put a LOT of pressure on her to move in their neighborhood, constantly criticizing her and questioning her why is she was looking for homes in her city when she should be moving to them, because raising a child with them would be so much easier, and why was she "accepting" to stay in her city instead of fighting for her best interests in our relationship.
This further reinforced why I do NOT want her parents constantly around me, because anything that we agree together, I feel that I'll have them on a bandwagon criticizing how I'm profiting from, or taking advantage of their daughter, and if it causes us to split up, I'll have lost my home, potentially lost child custody, and potentially lost my career prospects.
Just to be clear, I'm NOT trying to isolate her from her family, in fact I'm willing to have 1 or 2 spare guestrooms for her family to visit us, and I'm willing to stay at her family's home perhaps once every month. It's only 2.5 hours drive away, it's not on the other side of the country! To me that sounds like a perfectly feasible solution. And until last weekend, it seemed to be one for her too. But ever since last weekend, she isn't sure anymore, because supposedly her sister could only visit us once or twice a year because of how demanding her work is. Her parents are retired, so it shouldn't be an issue for them, but I guess they're less willing to travel.
With all that being said, I do not feel more comfortable moving to her parents' city more than I did before, in fact now perhaps even more so. So I told her - ultimately, she'll have to choose: is raising a child with me more important, or is raising a child with her family more important? Because if it's the later, perhaps we should end it so that she can more to her family and find a suitable father there.
The fact that she's still undecided, to me, is a HUGE RED FLAG. Because what if she changes her mind? Should I really try to find a workable solution, or is this a fool's errand?

2020.10.26 18:32 rczc [MEGATHREAD] 2020 HOLIDAY DEALS (aka Black Friday is cancelled)

It has been a crazy year and we hope everyone has been able to find at least one bright spot in all this mess. Just wear sunscreen har har har.
With that said, (responsible) companies have rightfully cancelled Black Friday and will be offering days/weeks-long deals. To get all the information collected and help everyone adequately prepare, we're starting a megathread of brand and company deals you have come across and would like to share with everyone.
Have fun! And remember friends, drinking and hauling has its consequences.
10/26 note: This will be stickied tomorrow after the makeup Monday un-stickies itself.

2020.10.26 18:19 TestingTheStrongOnes 100T Valorant Begins Qualifying for First Strike NA Tournament Today

Today is the first day of the first qualifying tournament for First Strike NA, the biggest Valorant tournament to date.
For those who haven't been keeping up with the process for this tournament, its the first event organized by Riot Games itself and is happening in every major region. This week's tournament is the first single-bracket elimination bracket to qualify for the main event. If 100T doesn't make Top 16 of this event, there's a second large bracket in two weeks we can enter to qualify.
For a full breakdown of how the event flows, checkout this great flowchart.
Here's the full tourney bracket: https://battlefy.com/embeds/5f8df91f1e4fe72f8afa8aa3/stage/5f8df9374eb3c2458668784c?showFullscreen=true
Here's the official broadcast schedule: https://i.redd.it/ybsk934pcev51.jpg
The entire tournament is BO3s (which is good, since its single elim) and some matches will be streamed by community casters and NSG up until the Top 8, than each match will be streamed. The community at ValorantCompetitive is compiling the community streamed matches w/ links in this thread.
100T got seeded 10th which is actually pretty high considering this is this roster's first event, but hopefully fair considering its on paper skill ceiling.
The first two rounds should be heavily favored 100T's way today, the only team I recognize near them on the bracket is Moon Racoons. Round 4 should be 100T vs Dignitas (unless Beastcoast plays spoiler for them). Round 5 could see 100T go against TSM, Renegades, or Time In (Ninja's team).
I'm not sure if they'll be official match threads for these games, so I'll update this post with links to streams as I find them.
Round 1: Streamed on NerdStreetGamers' official channel - https://www.twitch.tv/nerdstgamers

2020.10.26 17:58 retrotronica The Ulster-Scots brought the craic

The word crack is derived from the Middle English crak, meaning "loud conversation, bragging talk".[4] A sense of crack found in Northern England and Scotland meaning "conversation" or "news"[5] produces expressions such as "What's the crack?",[6] meaning "how are you?" or "have you any news?", similar to "what's up?", "how's it going?", or "what's the word?" in other regions. The context involving "news" and "gossip" originated in Northern English[7] and Scots.[8] A book on the speech of Northern England published in 1825 equates crack with "chat, conversation, news".[9] The term is recorded in Scotland with this sense as far back as the 16th century, with both Robert Fergusson and Robert Burns employing it in the 1770s and 1780s.[10][11][12] The Scottish song "The Wark o The Weavers", which dates back to the early part of the 19th century, published by David Shaw, who died in 1856, has the opening line "We're a' met thegither here tae sit an tae crack, Wi oor glesses in oor hands...."[13][14] A collection of folk songs from Cumberland published in 1865 refers to villagers "enjoying their crack".[15] "Crack" is prominent in Cumbrian dialect and everyday Cumbrian usage (including the name of an online local newspaper), with the meaning "gossip".[16][17] A glossary of Lancashire terms and phrases published in 1869 lists crack as meaning "chat",[18] as does a book on the local culture of Edinburgh published in the same year.[19] Glossaries of the dialects of Yorkshire (1878), Cheshire (1886), and Northumberland (1892) equate crack variously with "conversation", "gossip", and "talk".[20][21][22] These senses of the term entered Hiberno-English from Scots through Ulster at some point in the mid-20th century and were then borrowed into Irish.[1]
The Dictionary of the Scots Language records use of the term in Ulster in 1929.[11] Other early Irish citations from the Irish Independent relate to rural Ulster: from 1950, "There was much good 'crack'... in the edition of Country Magazine which covered Northern Ireland";[23] or from 1955, "The Duke had been sitting on top of Kelly's gate watching the crack."[24] At this time the word was, in Ireland, associated with Ulster dialects: in 1964 linguist John Braidwood said of the term, "perhaps one of the most seemingly native Ulster words is crack.... In fact the word is of English and Scots origin."[25] It can frequently be found in the work of 20th century Ulster writers such as Jennifer Johnston (1977): "I'm sorry if I muscled in on Saturday. Did I spoil your crack?"[26] and Brian Friel (1980): "You never saw such crack in your life, boys".[27]
Crack was borrowed into the Irish language with the Gaelicized spelling craic.[1] It has been used in Irish since at least 1968,[28] and was popularised in the catchphrase Beidh ceol, caint agus craic againn ("We'll have music, chat and craic"), used by Seán Bán Breathnach for his Irish-language chatshow SBB ina Shuí, broadcast on RTÉ from 1976 to 1982.[1][29][30] The Irish spelling was soon reborrowed into English, and is attested in publications from the 1970s and 1980s.[1] Craic has also been used in Scottish Gaelic since at least the early 1990s, though it is unknown if it was borrowed directly from Irish or from English.[1]
At first the craic form was uncommon outside Irish, even in an Irish context. Barney Rush's 1960s song "The Crack Was Ninety in the Isle of Man" does not use the Irish-language spelling, neither is it used in Christy Moore's 1978 version.[31] However, The Dubliners' 2006 version adopts the Irish spelling.[32] The title of Four to the Bar's 1994 concert album, Craic on the Road, uses the Irish-language spelling as an English-language pun,[33] as does Irish comedian Dara Ó Briain's 2012 show Craic Dealer.[34]
Now, 'craic' is interpreted as a specifically and quintessentially Irish form of fun. The adoption of the Gaelic spelling has reinforced the sense that this is an independent word (homophone) rather than a separate sense of the original word (polysemy).

2020.10.26 17:54 davewood95 My [34 M] girlfriend [34 F] of 7 months wants me to move with her in another city (2.5 hrs drive away) next summer, go get closer to her parents and sister who live there and who can help her raise a child we'd like to have. Is she asking too much?

tl;dr: Girlfriend wants me to move 2.5 hours away with her where her family lives so that we can have a child there. I do not feel financially or emotionally ready for this, as her family's presence will overwhelm my feeling of independence. Girlfriend agreed to stay where we are, but is having doubts after her family pressures her to change her stance. Is her uncertainty a red flag and deal-breaker?
I have been dating this woman since March. We love each other and everything seems to work great. We both own our own homes, and live together at each other's home, switching every home every week or so. We do want to move in together next year. This would require us both selling our homes and buying a new one together:
She understand the financial stakes and the emotional baggage of moving on from past relationships and we've agreed that it's best to start fresh - we both sell our homes, and we use both our capital to make a large down payment to buy a new home we pick, chose, design and live together next year. We also agreed that we shouldn't have a child until we live under the same roof, to minimize time and financial expenses related to maintaining two homes.
She previously mentioned how she'd love to one day live in her parents' neighborhood, since they also live close to her sister (32F) and brother-in-law (30ish?M) who are trying to have a child. As my girlfriend (34F) would also like to try for a child sometime next year or the year after, she'd love to have her child grow up surrounded by her extended family. Her family is very tight, and the parents frequently pop-in at her sister's place for dinner, or her sister regularly eats at her parent's place, as they live within cycling distance.
On the other hand, my girlfriend and I live 2.5 hours drive away from her family.
We met here, not there, we live here, and our careers are here, not in her family's city. During this pandemic, we've had the privilege to work from home, and this privilege may continue for the foreseeable future, so we may or may not be able to continue working from her family's city, but even if we could, I don't think I'm comfortable moving, at least not yet.
She may be okay with her family popping in our homes several times a week, but I'm not. Once a weekend? Sure. Multiple times a week? No. I also do not know anybody in her family's city. I do not have any family, friends, or contacts there. I have a network here, and building a new network in my 30s is hard. If for whatever reason I need to look for a different job, it would be very difficult for me (much more than for her due to our jobs) to find another job without going back to my previous city. Add to the stress of not only moving into a new house and being in an uncertain employment situation by moving, it would be my first time trying to raise a child - surrounded by her family who will obviously always take her side in case of a a disagreement between us.
So I told her moving right away would not be working out. We need to look for a home in our own city first, raise our own family ourselves, and then we can consider moving closer to your parents and sister, but as our own family, not as their family + the "string-along boyfriend". She agreed - she told me she wants to make a family with me, not with her parents and sister with a side help of me.
Everything was great and we start browsing homes for sale in our city. A few of them seem to please both of us, so we're already hopeful to start making offers on the market next year. But then she just came back from a weekend at her family, in which I exceptionally preferred not to join (harsh COVID travel restrictions in my region). Her family is put a LOT of pressure on her to move in their neighborhood, constantly criticizing her and questioning her why is she was looking for homes in her city when she should be moving to them, because raising a child with them would be so much easier, and why was she "accepting" to stay in her city instead of fighting for her best interests in our relationship.
This further reinforced why I do NOT want her parents constantly around me, because anything that we agree together, I feel that I'll have them on a bandwagon criticizing how I'm profiting from, or taking advantage of their daughter, and if it causes us to split up, I'll have lost my home, potentially lost child custody, and potentially lost my career prospects.
Just to be clear, I'm NOT trying to isolate her from her family, in fact I'm willing to have 1 or 2 spare guestrooms for her family to visit us, and I'm willing to stay at her family's home perhaps once every month. It's only 2.5 hours drive away, it's not on the other side of the country! To me that sounds like a perfectly feasible solution. And until last weekend, it seemed to be one for her too. But ever since last weekend, she isn't sure anymore, because supposedly her sister could only visit us once or twice a year because of how demanding her work is. Her parents are retired, so it shouldn't be an issue for them, but I guess they're less willing to travel.
With all that being said, I do not feel more comfortable moving to her parents' city more than I did before, in fact now perhaps even more so. So I told her - ultimately, she'll have to choose: is raising a child with me more important, or is raising a child with her family more important? Because if it's the later, perhaps we should end it so that she can more to her family and find a suitable father there.
The fact that she's still undecided, to me, is a HUGE RED FLAG. Because what if she changes her mind? Should I really try to find a workable solution, or is this a fool's errand?

2020.10.26 17:51 FluffyMcGee5 Local COVID-19 Update (Mon Oct 26th)

Local COVID-19 Update (Mon Oct 26th)
  • 14 new cases reported today (all residents of London; Ages: 1 ages 0-19, 2 age 20-29, 1 age 30-39, 1 age 40-49, 4 age 50-59, 3 age 60-69, 1 age 70-79, 1 age 80+). That's not a great age distribution.
  • We are averaging 9 new cases per day (on average, 2 of those have "no known link").
  • Bad news of the day: For the first time since early June, we have an update from LHSC. This means we've crossed the threshold where they can report on the number of patients (while maintaining patent privacy). They are currently caring for 6 inpatients with COVID-19. I know some people will say it's still only 6 people in a region of 500k, but it's still a shitty milestone to cross.
  • No deaths and 10 recoveries reported today.
  • Outbreak Update: No new outbreaks. We currently have 8 long-term care/retirement home outbreaks (McGarrell Place LTC was resolved yesterday).
  • School / Child Care Update: No new cases today. We have had 14 total cases (1 childcare/early years, 8 elementary, 5 secondary).

2020.10.26 17:19 TinManGrand Thanks for the mask

I've always been a girlfriend guy. You know what a girlfriend guy is? He's a guy who always prioritizes his relationship with his girlfriend over his platonic friendships. I've been a girlfriend guy since middle school. I think since I was 13 I've been single maybe a year total in that time.
Earlier this year, I got out of a six year relationship. It ended amicably. Philosophy issues about children and long term housing goals made us both realize that maybe we should end things before these disagreements became serious and verbally violent. It was probably the most mature breakup I've ever had.
We had lived together since right around the beginning of the relationship and had moved around the country together as she quested for her bachelor's and then master's degree. I was always down to go because I'm a man of few commitments in life and that's fine. I got to see different states and regions of the United States I probably wouldn't have seen otherwise.
So it's June in the pandemic. Everything is a bit crazy for everyone so we agreed to live out our lease on our townhouse, me moving downstairs and her taking the upstairs. Everything is just in a sort of frozen time for awhile. The wounds are fresh but she's still my best friend so I still cook for her and she still asks me how I'm doing and it's fine.
But on the inside, I was beginning to cave. My mental health was deteriorating at a rapid rate. I've always struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts. I have never attempted but a lot of that was due to my ex motivating me to seek counseling and get better.
Then in August, I decided I needed to truly barton down the hatches on my mental health or I'd end up self destructing in life and more importantly at my job. I got in my car, drove to Walmart, and bought the most colorful shirt I could manage to wear. It was a blue silk hawaiian shirt with some pineapples. I hated it. I hated that shirt so much. But my online therapist recommended I add some color to my wardrobe since I've always been in black or grey. He said it would make me realize I'm a human in living color. I doubted it but slapped that bad boy on during a day off.
And I felt it. I felt what my therapist was talking about. I felt colorful. I felt honest and vivid and human.
Around that same time, pics was experiencing a mini mental health marathon. Folks posting pictures of themselves doing better with an assortment of mental health issues. I said to myself, eh if it doesn't well I can always delete it later. I wanted to share my experience with the world.
And then the post blew up. I was on the front page of reddit. I was smiling in the face of suicidal thoughts with my stupid blue shirt and I was getting told stories of overcoming suicidal thoughts. People came out in droves to tell me how happy they were for me. As pathetic as this may sound, I felt more loved than I had ever.
One of the downsides to getting yourself on the front page of reddit is the mail. Holy crap. So much mail. Mostly negative. Sure there were some people publicly telling me to kill myself or that I was an attention seeking whore but the bulk of the negativity was in my reddit inbox.
And then along came a gal who we're going to call Red because of her red hair and because I'm shitty at giving nicknames or pseudonyms. Red inboxed me and told me hey I'm proud of you but damn are you handsome (I'm paraphrasing). Admittedly, I have never been told I'm handsome. Sure I'm confident enough to say I've got nice eyes and I take care of my beard enough to get compliments on it, but handsome had always avoided being tagged to me.
I had to respond. In my infinite wisdom, I used the best reply I could come up with.
Thanks you too.
I'm not good at talking to women online. Or in person. Or in general. Honestly it's a miracle I work in customer service.
But she replied back. And we hit it off. Facebook adds and the whole nine yards. It felt good to have someone wanting me again. Red herself had spent time dealing with mental health issues (more on that later) and had been attracted to me not just because of my appearance but also because I was open and honest about my mental health and the daily struggles within.
We talked daily. Texting throughout the day and hours long phone calls at night. We learned everything we could ever find out about each other. She teased me for being an adult man who really really likes Among Us. So much to the point that she bought me an Among Us face mask so all the people at my job could make fun of my favorite game as well. It was gonna take weeks to get to me and, man, I was like a kid on Christmas Eve every day when I checked my mailbox to no avail.
So this is where logistics became an obstacle. Red lived cross country from me. I liked this girl. I wanted to be with her not just emotionally but physically. She was enthusiastic. When I told her I had a vacation coming up, she immediately suggested coming to my state and spending that vacation with me. For about a month of our time talking, this was the plan. I'd get to show her all the sights in my town and she'd get to show me all the-- well you don't need those details, folks.
About a month after we made those plans, her job hit her with some work related malarkey. She couldn't take the full time off. She could take 2 of her 5 requested days off, work a shift, and then get 2 more of those 5 days off. Disgruntled, she enthusiastically agreed to reset our calendars for meeting to the beginning of the next year. I went along with it, even more motivated to eventually meet this woman in real life.
Then, about a week ago, silence. Nothing. No messages for an entire day. I sent one out at night, aiming to just get a goodnight or hey I'm busy text. Anything. I was thirsty for conversation with this woman.
Then another day. This time, no messages I told myself. Let her contact you. She'll message you. She's got to. You did nothing wrong. Finally, at about 11pm my time on the second day of radio silence, she messaged me. She'd been busy, she claimed, friends and work and she was sorry she forgot to message me. A slight pain but nothing I can't get over. After all, I reasoned, I'm not committed to her and she's not committed to me. At this point, we're just two strangers months away from meeting in person.
Then another day of silence. Forget not messaging her, I told myself. Be a man. Show interest. You like this girl. So I messaged her. She's tired, she says, tired and kind of out of it so she's going to bed early. She's a little drunk and threatening to come to my state anyway for my vacation and call out of the one shift her job "had" to schedule her for. I tell her to think about it and decide when she's completely sober and not sauced.
Well at least she messaged me, I told myself. I said goodnight and went to sleep.
3 am my time that night. A message from her.
I don't think this is working out.
I just so happened to be having a rough night of sleep when that message chimed in. I immediately replied back What?
No reply.
Another day of silence. I asked clarifying questions. What won't work out? The trip? Us? What?
The day went by and I kind of dug myself back into a hole. Maybe this is why I always wanted to be in a relationship. I like being wanted. I like being pined for. I like having someone I can point to and say see her? That's my partner. She could have any guy in the world but she chose me so she's mine and I'm lucky.
I got really depressed.
Late at night, she finally reached out to me. I was noticing a pattern here. She'd wait until she thought I was asleep to message me, trying to avoid confrontation. The old me would just move on but when she said what she said, I had to reply.
Logistically I don't think we're gonna work out. You live too far away. How would it ever work?
I told her that she's allowed to think that but I don't agree. I thought we had a plan: meet, be nice to each other, and then plan the next step of moving to one of our states. I've always been a guy willing to take risks for a relationship if there's loyalty.
She kind of stopped messaging me there. She said she was sorry. I told her she hurt me. She apologized again. I went silent and didn't reply.
So if you're still reading this, You're probably wondering "how's this true off my chest material?" Here's the thing: I'm in more pain then I was at the end of the six year relationship. Maybe it's because of the platonic state I have with my ex. Maybe the relationship ended so amicably that I never really hurt too bad, just went back into my depression because that's my default state.
The truth is that this whole thing gave me whiplash. I'm putting on a brave front but I'm not getting there quite yet. Nothing seems to work. Coffee and other drinks I like don't taste good to me anymore. I'm not eating. I'm barely sleeping or sleeping too much, it changes on a whim. I'm not even playing video games anymore to pass pandemic time. Just scrolling reddit and getting into random petty arguments.
And now I'm on vacation. No plans anymore. Just sitting here. Wearing my among us mask at the laundromat and thinking to myself this is as close as I'll ever get to her again. This is as close as to a relationship as I may get again. I'm 30 next year. I'm not in my prime anymore and it's really hard to date in our new normal. The only people even remotely interested in me romantically are exes with too much history to overlook and women in relationships already.
So if this is it, this is it. All I can say is thanks for the mask, Red. And if you're reading this, thanks for making me feel wanted again even if it ended way too suddenly and soon.

2020.10.26 15:53 TarsTarquas Any Plans for Different Start Dates

Just Question above. Are there any plans to have start dates like in 2281 or other dates? I know the dates are primarily used for regions right now, but I feel like a start date just on the beginning of the main NCR-Legion war with all expansion targets dealt with and no weird randomness that happens in these games done.
