  1. I spent some time in the Marine Corps as a fire direction control clerk, which is a fancy way of saying that I was the guy who calculated and directed fire missions for an artillery unit. I was aware of the ordinance available for use, and the flechette rounds were the choice when the “fire base” was being overrun. It really was a nasty and painful way to die, but was intended to be used in close combat, and not against civilians. We usually called them the “beehive round,” because of the sound they made upon detonation. I’m guessing that the reason they’re being used against civilians is that the Russians don’t make a distinction between military and civilian populations, they just want to kill everyone. Talk about who are the Nazis now. A flechette round contains hundreds of small, needle- or razor-like projectiles designed to penetrate armor and inflict painful wounds…

    1. Hello Jimmy. Thank you for the information. It seems the Russian goal is to terrorize and inflict cruelty on the civilian population in hopes they will become so scared or tired of the pain they will force the leaders to surrender to Putin. I wonder how long the world will justify allowing that to continue? I wonder what the people of the western countries would want if they were the ones attacked and needed help, would the same sorry but we don’t want to escalate by stopping the death and destructions that we could. We wouldn’t like that response, so why do we use it on them?
