Which company makes Stinger missiles? Seems like it might be time to buy up a chunk of that stock.

Javelins might be a better bet.

I miss the days when I had no idea what a false flag was.

So how does your average patriotic Russian sign up for these "proxy forces" in the first place?

At gunpoint?

Several Tom Clancy novels?

They do if they want to send saboteurs and guerillas to Kyiv.

Basically identical to the plot of this novel.
Except their plot is against West Germany.

I give it even odds that any attack from the north is really just misdirection from a push to grab costal property that will allow a direct land connection to Crimea.

Just wait until Putin moves  to protect Ethnic Russians living in the separatist region of New Jersey.
Long before that, you'll hear propaganda along the lines of "American is not a distinct nationality.  It is a subset of Russian ethnicity & should traditionally be part of Russian state"

If Russia was able to do that, I'm sure they would be ecstatic.  But Ukraine know this is a major goal of their and that area contains highly fortified regions.

My guess is that their main goal is just minor regional conflicts that keep the west wary of allowing Ukraine to join NATO.

If Ukraine was a NATO member, this would potentially the start of a world war rather than a regional fight and, while Russia doesn't want that war just as much as the west, Russia wants to keep that war in the minds of the west.

Since Ukraine is the pig that knows it's tomorrow nights dinner, I would be doing scorched earth on that tract of land.  Every road leading to the Crimea?  Remove it, blow it up, dig holes in it.  Power lines, water lines, gas lines?  All of it.  Rig it for traps, salt the lands, move out all the women, children and money.  They want it?  Go Homer on it: Did you have to salt the earth too?  Yeah.

They want that tract?  Move all the criminals, cesspools and everything trash into that space and let the Ruskies have it.

Oh and once they actually start shooting?  Lob a few cruise missiles at Moscow and see how the people like it when Vladdy daddy's house is under attack too and it's not just some far away war.  I'm sure there are few electrical plants servicing Moscow that would LOVE a cruise missile or two this time of year.

But nobody is willing to risk the Bear getting full hard on mad, but I think stressing out Putin and his health will help shorten the despot cycle in the world.  Right now you can see the same thing between the GOP and Dems as the Ruskies and their neighbors.  They aren't playing by the same rules, and frankly once the pigeon is on the chess board, strutting and pooping everywhere, f the rules, just win the game.  PLAY DIRTY UKRAINE

/and the US Dems too.

PaceyWhitter: If Russia was able to do that, I'm sure they would be ecstatic.  But Ukraine know this is a major goal of their and that area contains highly fortified regions.


Of course. It probably would have been more helpful to have characterized it as their "reach goal"

PaceyWhitter: My guess is that their main goal is just minor regional conflicts that keep the west wary of allowing Ukraine to join NATO.


They'd still really like to grab the shoreline, along with even a modest corridor over to the Dnieper. They really need that water supply.

PaceyWhitter: If Ukraine was a NATO member, this would potentially the start of a world war rather than a regional fight and, while Russia doesn't want that war just as much as the west, Russia wants to keep that war in the minds of the west.


If Ukraine was a NATO member, we'd already be at war with Russia.

Yeah, obviously long term, you can't hold Crimea without holding the Kakhovka reservoir. My question is whether Russia thinks that holding one bank of the Dnieper is geopolitically stable, or if Putin thinks he needs to Leeroy Jenkins all the way to Kyiv.
