What was Hitler's obsession with Stalingrad?
Why was it deemed strategically important, worthy of an entire army and almost a year of constant fighting? Not to mention preventing that army from breaking out, letting it be destroyed completely and with it, 300k of the best men the Wehrmacht could muster at the time. A blow from which it never fully recovered, and it was unable to obtain a strategic victory on the Eastern Front for that reason afterwards.
Why not focus on the oil fields completely? Instead, Hitler sent the best forces to worthless Stalingrad, dispatching smaller divisions to take oil fields. And oil is what Germany desperately needed.
Of course Goering was in charge of utilizing the resources in occupied territories and was an abysmal failure at doing so anyway. So I guess it's a moot point.

/k/, I went to my first American gun show today. All my previous shows were in Illinois. Huge show, decent prices, no politics bullshit, and beef jerky, lots of it.
bought 60rnds of privi 7.62x54r for my m39 that I reload for, mainly for the brass. And jerky.

USAF Security Forces Tactical Response Force, cops, but kind of cool cops that made it past guarding a gate, mostly. So why all the hate towards USAF SecFo and not other MP style troops? These guys have the option to attend US Army Ranger school, a counter sniper school, a Army marksmanship school, jump school, and a K9 handling school. Obviously they have the chance to become operator tier troops, and a lot of them actually do, but they still get shit on. What are the thoughts of night /k/ on USAF Security Forces, and why?

Had a situation a few hours ago where I was close (or closer than I ever have been) to drawing my weapon. I live in Florida by the way. Here it goes:
>Pull into walmart parking lot
>turn into spot
>car coming the opposite direction speeds up to act like i cut them off (other parking spots everywhere)
>i pull in, they back up, pull in spot next to me.
>we both get out
>Nigger says "dat wasnt a smart move."
>i brush it off, dont want to get into it and say "i just turned into this spot, you sped up. but ok"
>he says "I got a kid in my car, dat wasnt smart. Next time youll get bullets"
I asked him what he said, and he stopped talking so I walked off.
How fucking retarded is it that this NIGGER would threaten a life (including his own) over something stupid like that?
If he showed a gun, would I be justified in pulling my firearm and double tapping him?
