Debeo Summa Credo: that1guy77: Marcus Aurelius: that1guy77: I'm thinking worst-case scenario: Invasion... but am, of course, hoping for the best. Reason being: In addition to the previously mentioned, Russia learned from their previous 2008 adventure in Georgia that the western powers will sit idly -- whoever really started it is besides the point

There is the small matter of exactly how we could do anything militarily.  NATO could do it by invading Poland first, I suppose, but that presents its own problems.  An amphibious invasion at Sevastopol would start a shooting war with Russia.  And nobody in the region is eager to see a foreign army roll over their soil.

So direct military intervention is off the table.

If you don't mind... Could you please explain why on earth would NATO invade itself? Besides, we're dealing with opinions, and 'no invasion' just happens to be yours. I'm not passing mine of as fact.

We'd just be keeping Putin off balance, man. He'd never expect NATO to invade one of its own members.

You'd never want to fight a guy who was willing to punch himself in the face, right? All NATO has to do is attack Poland or Latvia or Hungary or whatever and Putin will be like "holy shiat, they crazy! I ain't messing with them!"


Better yet, just lift tiny Luxembourg out of the ground with a shovel and hurl it on Russian territory -- preferrably on Putin's front lawn. It's kind of like the horsehead-in-bed effect.

Not too many Americans know much about the Crimea.   Mostly it's famous for its war and its river.    We've all heard of the Crimean War and the Crimea River.

spawn73: Ring of Fire: I know we had naval assets in the Black Sea for the Olympics. Anyone know if they are still there or if they've left?
Also what is the Turks take on this whole deal. Would they allow NATO ships into the Black Sea.

Why would NATO be involved in this? No one except complete idiots thinks this situation involves NATO or USA in any way or form.

But yeah, I am pretty sure a NATO member like Turkey doesn't have a problem with letting its own farking coalition enter the black sea.


So, if Russia invaded Turkey from the rear, would Greece help?

Blah blah blah, that is what you say.

How many times are we going to ease up, let bad people get stronger? We have the biggest pussy in the history of the world leading the country, and his supporters are even bigger pussies. This will not end well. Another Cold war.


Hey TP, I'm curious- what's your MOS?

Snippet off BBC:

The men have not yet made any demands or issued any statements but did put up a sign reading: "Crimea is Russia".

They threw a flash grenade in response to questions from a journalist, AP news agency reported.


Wrong question?
