PSYOPS rules say you blackout the media before invasion... look at Yugoslavia, Baghdad, I'd say Kabul, but they were blacked out before we invaded.

Doubt they are going just yet. Maybe a test run.

Invasion iminent.

I say, let it happen. Watch as Russia gets mired in a costly and deadly guerrilla campaign.

More info on the last attack. Look for energy blackouts next.

In many nations, you can spot an imminent Russian invasion by staying vigilant and taking note of how much of the population is wearing Adidas.  I don't think this works in Ukraine, though.

It's almost as if 4 years of having a president who caved to the whims of Putin at every possible opportunity had consequences.

Half to two-thirds of Ukraine would be loyal or sympathetic to Russia.  Occupation may not be as difficult as some believe. I spent two years in Eastern Ukraine and travelled extensively. Russian symbols and propaganda are everywhere.

After the cold war, Ukraine's main export to the rest of Europe was the most ruthless, bloodthirsty gangsters you can imagine. So please excuse me while I continue not to feel sorry for them.

One of the first massive cyber attacks was in Estonia in 2007 after they removed a Soviet WW2 statue.

Ukraine just removed a similar statue this week.

Not saying one has anything to do with the other but...

Just because some of them still speak russian doesn't makes them sympathetic. I think they have fought for their independence and they want to keep it.
Maybe you fell for the disinformation campaign Putin has been running for many years in Ukraine in his attempts to destabilize the country.

No one knows it was Russia. Maybe it was a 400-pound farker sitting on his bed. Cyber is very tough

At the border, the Russians are met by a Ukraine government employee.
UGE:  Sorry.  You can't invade today
Russians:  "Vell, vhy naught?"
UGE:  Computers' down.
Russians:  "Vhaaat?"
UGE:  Can't process your invasion paperwork.  Computers are down.  Come back tomorrow maybe.
Russians: "Ve vill jus' invade without papervork!  Da!"
UGE: That requires other paperwork!  Computers are down.  Comeback tomorrow.
Russians: "Ve do paper forms!  Da!  Paper forms, vide guys!"
UGE: We only have PDFs and we can print them cause...
Russians:  "Ve know.  Ve know.  Computers are down.  Back to Moscow, angry horde."

Google News is on it.  I checked when this popped up to see other articles and there was something about cats protesting healthy cat food or something where this probably should have been listed.

First they were "Massive Attack", then due to pressures about the Gulf War they changed to "Massive" but aftwards went back to "Massive Attack" - and now they're "Massive Cyberattack"? I can't keep up with them.

Where is Space Force when we need them?  Do we need to institute a draft for Space Force to line up the massive information technology resources of America?

The eastern provinces would likely capitulate, from what I hear, but ethnic Ukrainians would fight like hell.

Ukraine has been a stable food bowl.  That is why the Germans tried to grab it in WWII and others before.

"Ukrainian! All your personal data was uploaded to the public network. All data on the computer is destroyed, it is impossible to restore it," a message written on the hacked websites said, according to Reuters.

The note, written in Ukrainian, Russian and Polish, added: "All information about you has become public, be afraid and expect the worst. This is for your past, present and future."


Or, to put it in plain English: "All your base are belong to us!"

Just as a prank, it would be fun to dress all the Ukrainian defenders in Chinese uniforms, and change the livery of the tanks and APCs to Chinese Army, play Mandarin songs on loudspeakers.  The Russians would love it.  The Chinese may catch on.

It became a US thing when we talked Ukraine into destroying their nuclear arsenal on the condition we aid in their defense.

I bet you think stealthing is cool, too.

Hey bro. Ukraine knew who we were before they hooked up with us and they still sucked this dirty dick. Now what.
