I couldn’t find another pit thread for him, so… fuck this guy. He spends the beginning of the Ukraine/Russia thread insisting Russia will sail to an easy victory, poo-pooing Ukraine’s chances to resist. Okay, that’s not really a huge deal – lots of people thought Russia would easily overwhelm Ukraine. But his arrogant posts continue, never acknowledging how wrong he was, and how dumb he was to be so damn confident.
@Alessan makes a pretty mild statement about the foolishness of using nukes, and AK84 responds with smug mockery, as if only he understands these deep, complex issues (despite how incredibly wrong he was about Russian capabilities):
Jesus. After being so fucking wrong for most of the thread, have some fucking humility. You don’t know what you’re talking about. You were massively wrong about Russia, and you still refuse to admit if.
Indeed, he has a loooong history of dropping snide little one liners which hint at, but never actually show, his vast intellectual superiority. I stopped even attempting to engage, it would be like trying to argue with Trump.
I have never seen any sign whatsoever that AK84 has any idea of what humility is. If he comes to this thread, it’ll be to assert how much smarter he is than cretins like us. His createst contribution to the board is the rarity with which he posts.
A dissenting voice in this thread; I’ve not found AK84 annoying, though I have not been closely following the Russia/Ukraine threads, mostly because of the combination of the schadenfreude and jingoism of some posters
Here, AK discounts Ukrainian reports of Russian losses as “BS” without any evidence:
Maybe it’s BS, or maybe it’s mostly accurate – no way to really know at this point. Maybe, AK, you don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about, but you’re constitutionally incapable of recognizing that you might not be the smartest person in the room.
The Ottoman Islamic Sultanate was known for being fiendish (I assume that is the implication) so it is just fine for Erdogan to throw away a century of secular rule and be a scheming theocratic fiend again.
