How accurate are these numbers? I just don't see how they would know this.
The report references @OfficialSOLI, it is important to know who SOLI is before evaluating the subject matter in that report.We're just now doing this? What the actual fork!?!?!!
I concur, I doubt that those numbers are anymore than 50% off correct at most. Which is pretty normal for warring nation's press releases during a conflict. The Russians also releasing numbers of Ukrainians killed which are that badly exaggerated.How accurate are these numbers? I just don't see how they would know this.
I would think the numbers are estimates and not necessarily exact.How accurate are these numbers? I just don't see how they would know this.
Yeah, somewhere between "not necessarily exact" down to 1/3 of "not necessarily exact".I would think the numbers are estimates and not necessarily exact.

As you can see SOLI is kind of like what James Vasquez is doing as an individual and with Ripley's heroes are doing together to increase his individual effect.
It is not significant other than as a pin point effort which affects a very few number of Ukrainian irregular troop units, which are by the day being drawn out of the combat areas as the regular Ukrainian forces are finishing their mobilization and training are taking their place on the lines.
There was a point early on where those irregular relatively untrained units were very necessary because their was not enough regular units to cover the front lines.
What is significant is in the last batch of stuff we've promised, and the previous batches as well, is night vision gear that the US is sending to Ukraine. We're supplying that gear in large numbers. It is clear that is having an effect by the shear number of videos I've recently seen of front line battlefield action which is using those night vision systems.
So your sentiment about it is not wrong. But is already has been addressed and as quickly as the US probably can deal with that deficiency, the US is dealing with it.
The ability to do night operations to club the baby seals where they sleep is probably more important than having main battlefield tanks.

When you say "I sure hope that's not how they do it," I'm not exactly sure what you are referring to.I saw a video of a targeted building beeing blown up. When it was over the voice of the drone pilot says something to the effect of "Scratch 200 Russians." I sure hope that's not how they do it.

You could be meaning how they count the dead. Or you could be meaning the voice over language they are using to celebrate the deaths of 200 "scratched" Russians.
In the event that it's the language they are using, that is perfectly normal for perfectly normal people after a perfectly normal war has gone on for several months.
The degree to which perfectly normal warfare generates perfectly normal breathtaking hatred amount perfectly normal combatants is well,,,breathtaking. They are perfectly normal victims of war, not monsters.
Rambo is a time worn story of the perfectly normal aftermath of perfectly normal wars.
Grimm isn't it?
