Surely Xi and Putin are coordinating so the US is too overwhelmed to do anything.

Wouldnt surprise me if their right wing militias sleeping cells in the US and Europe activate too with terrorist attacks/political assassinations at the same time.

What is the real deal with Russia's military? We've read pieces saying it's just a rust bucket that is more about image then any ability to commit to a real, prolonged war. Are we just waiting for them to stick their necks out?

I don't think they can commit unless they're assured victory, so we're just making them not so sure.

The only move Biden can do is basically send US troops in Ukraine right now to deter russia from attacking at all.

If Russia attacks, NATO cant do anything unless they want nuclear war. Putin is the kind of nutjob who would totally launch nukes over Ukraine.

The only thing I can see NATO doing post-russian invasion is supplying weapons to Ukraine so they can wage a guerilla war against russia... but that too could lead to russia getting pissed off and doing like Israel does to Iran in Syria... destroy weapons convoys entering ukraine.

Lets be clear, Russia and Putin think that Ukraine isnt a real country. Ukrainians arent a thing, they dont deserve a country. Ukraine is Russia.

Nothing will be fixed in Europe until Putin dies and someone sane replaces him.

About why to call it "Ukraine" and not "the Ukraine":

***
"In the U.S., I'd say there's always been a habit of saying 'the Ukraine' because of the mental shorthand of considering Russia as the Soviet Union, when it was only one of the federated socialist republics." In the United States and Canada, he said, "the émigré community cared because it cared about whether Ukraine was recognized as its own thing or if it was seen as a territory that belonged to the Russian Empire or the Soviet Union or Poland."

The issue with your scenario is that it would necessitate holding a lot of territory that is not majority-minority Russian like Crimea, in cities that are famous for their opposition to invaders. The Russians already have Crimea and heavily patrol the Sea of Azov, they wouldn't risk Svestopol just to gain Odessa without making a full commitment run into Kiev and at that point you would have a full scale war.

Most likely this is just Putin being a classical strongman and hoping to get "standing up to the west!" cred to help drown out criticism by folks like Alexei Navalny.

Saudi Arabia, USA, and UAE versus Yemen. https://www.cato.org/commentar​y/trump-​administration-kills-coldly-yemen-putt​ing-jobs-lives
FTA: "No one knows how many have died, but best estimates are 20,000 civilians in the conflict and another 130,000 from the war's impact. The harm is overwhelmingly caused by the Saudis, Emiratis, and their allies, including America."

Biden has said he's ending the program. Hopefully, soon. https://apnews.com/article/bide​n-end-s​upport-saudi-offenseive-yemen-b68f5849​3dbfc530b9fcfdb80a13098f

He might not be mad but he thinks he can get away with everything and so far he has. So why wouldnt he continue to do it? Until he goes too far and someone says, enough is enough and then shiat hits the fan because someone miscalculated.

And since Putin knows he can do whatever the fark he wants and NATO aint gonna do shiat because its dangerous, Putin is gonna continue to do what he wants. Thats why I said NATO aint gonna do shiat.

FFS Putin used chemical weapons against the UK and nothing happened. Germany is still building a big pipeline. The next german chancellor is gonna be his biatch even more so than Merkel. LePen in France might replace Macron and do the same.

Putin's bullshiat aint over. Not even close.


How many Americans should die to prevent that from happening?  5,000?  10,000?

If you dont think that Europe security is related to the US society, you got another thing coming. No americans should die, thats why Biden should act NOW before the invasion happens. Deterrence works best.

I say station 20 000 US soldiers in Ukraine till Putin croaks as deterrence.

Well, given that the last annexation of Ukrainian territory by the Russians happened under Biden's boss, I'm not so sure that's going to hold up.  Quite frankly, it looks like most European nations are just tired of the constant geopolitical bullshiat and want to be left alone.  I predict virtually no fingers raised to protect Ukraine.

Is there another source besides The Sun?

Yes there is!

https://www.cnn.com/2021/04/12/europe​/​ukraine-zelensky-front-lines/

Lt. Gen. Ruslan Khomchak, commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian armed forces, told CNN an estimated 50,000 Russian troops have now gathered across the Russian border and in Crimea. In addition, there are at least 35,000 Russian-backed separatists in rebel-held areas of Ukraine, he said.Even before this current worrying build up in the number of troops at Moscow's command on Ukraine's doorstep, Zelensky called for the US to sell it weapons, such as Javelin anti-tank missiles. Those weapons have now been delivered, most notoriously in a phone conversation with then-President Donald Trump.

And then there's this.  It got listed at memeorandum, but I don't know what to make of it...

https://www.unz.com/pescobar/ukraine-r​edux-war-russophobia-and-pipelineistan
https://www.unz.com/pescobar/ukraine-r​edux-war-russophobia-and-pipelineistan​/#comments

... especially when TFA uses phrases like "US deep state."

To contain Russia, the US deep state/NATO combo needs to control the Black Sea - which, for all practical purposes, is now a Russian lake. And to control the Black Sea, they need to "neutralize" Crimea.

Sounds suspiciously wingnutty, maybe even putiny... and it was just the first clue.

Media Bias Fact Check doesn't like the site, that's for sure.

[On preview: ooh, and Fark doesn't like its URL either.  Definitely sus.  But amusing.]
