Just happen to noticed a An-124 on flightradar24 from Leipzig Germany descending in the DC area . According to wiki Antonov Airlines (Ukrainian cargo airline) operates An-124s out of Leipzig since moving its air ops there from Kyiv since the war started.

Himars and 155 shells was announced today. Maybe pallets of cash also.

I know that.  What flights are you talking about?

They heard there was free food

Quote
    “There are reports that 100,000 North Korean volunteers are prepared to come and take part in the conflict,” Korotchenko said on Russian Channel One.

    Korotchenko was notably interested in what he called the North Korean’s “wealth of experience with counter-battery warfare” — a telling remark given reports of Ukraine’s long-range artillery success since acquiring US-made HIMARS rocket systems in June.

    “If North Korea expresses a desire to meet its international duty to fight against Ukrainian fascism, we should let them,” Korotchenko said.

    Seemingly no consideration was given to what constitutes a “volunteer” force in an authoritarian state such as North Korea. (New York Post)

I wonder how much North Korea is going to charge Russia for those "volunteers"?  You know they won't be volunteers, and Korea won't provide their services without receiving something in return.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

I don't expect a North Korean soldier will be expensive. 

North Koreans bribe gov officials to get the opportunity to work in Siberia.

This could be really bad.  The Korean war was a bloodbath, and I'm sure N. Korea and Russia won't care how many of the N. Korean soldiers die.  And I think it is bad thing for N. Korea to get some combat experience.

Russia is getting a fair bit of combat experience against a lot of western weapon systems, not good. Not to mention the alleged blackmarket in all the stuff we're sending them.

I thought the U.N. forces were doing well against the Norks until a couple of million Chinese "volunteers" (there's that word again) headed South across the Yalu River . . .
