WTF Russia?
 
2022-01-24 2:51:00 PM  
Imagine being Russia and thinking you need more farking land.
 
2022-01-24 2:51:47 PM  
Can NATO start sending Putin some nice gift baskets or something, for all of Russia's hard work towards NATO recruiting?

Perfect strategy, go around trying to make everyone mad at you at the same time.
 
2022-01-24 2:54:42 PM  
Sounds like a distraction.

Keep an eye on Ukraine.

And in related news "Ireland planning to supply Russian sailors free sunglasses."

Is he trying to bait us? Doesn't make sense. Make a point that he can strike at NATO targets? We know all that. Getting his craft ready for a protracted invasion and occupation of Ukraine? Yes.

Have the Russians met the Irish?

I'd have to give say I wouldn't know who would win in a fight. Drunk Russians or Drunk Irish people.

Also, the Irish hold a grudge a very long time.

I wonder what Pooty would do if we put 3 carriers with all of their escorts in the Black Sea...

So do the Russians.

With the trickle of rubles headed to actually maintaining the Russian military, what's the over/under that all aircraft and ships actually make it back under their own power or end up as new reefs?

Yeah, isn't there a sub base in Scotland that the US and the UK use?  not like they would have to go far to catch Russian ships.

Let the Turks know that they should be seriously embarrassed about not noticing three carriers' transiting the Bosporus?

There would likely be a violent disagreement over the use of potatoes.

So do the Russians.


For a laugh I entered "do the irish hold grudges" into google. Then did the same for "do russians hold grudges".

If google is a window onto peoples perception of the world then yes...the Russians better watch out :)

Are they bringing out the coal rolling fleet?
 
2022-01-24 3:10:09 PM  
I really wish someone would just man up and take Putin out.  He's such a prick.

I guess if someone in his inner circle or his military did that, there'd be a chance that THAT person would take over and be worse, but I don't know how much worse they could be.

(Ghost of Stalin nods, deadily.)
 
2022-01-24 3:11:34 PM  
In other unrelated news. The location is right above a chunk of transatlantic data/internet cables.

/pooty promises there's no sub under those ships.

In a related note,
Ireland seen conducting impromptu experiment on how many sea mines can be set off simultaneously...

Just sink his rusting ships. Enough with this dumbass already - I want my stocks back up.

Shiat must be really bad inside Russia for them to put on this show. Totally intended for viewers in Russia and neighboring countries.

He'd sink something in the Bosporus so that our ships would be stuck in the Black Sea.

As long as they hold onto Communism, dictator or kleptocrat is the only way to get rich quick.

Josef Broz of Yugoslavia was the only dictator to make Communism (barely) work, and that was by introducing some aspects of capitalism. Folks who worked hard or produced innovation were rewarded with single-family homes, cars, travel, etc. If he had gone full Social Democratic, the USSR likely would have fallen sooner.

He wants to play games. I don't want to deal with his shiathole country anymore - so yes, we should end him and move on to adult matters, like diplomatic relations with China.

Sanctions would do the job - seriously, what does Russia offer the world except for corruption and natural gas? Let's get Europe off of fossil fuels and cut the pipelines.

gunther_bumpass: Imagine being Russia and thinking you need more farking land.


In modern times, the only thing that's ever stopped nations with real armies from invading and conquering Russia is its sheer size. You go with what works.

Arguably the only natural border Russian conventional forces could defend by themselves over the long haul is the Atlantic Ocean. That's the main thesis of "Eurasianist" theories of geopolitics like that of Alexander Dugin. The only way to guarantee Russian sovereignty once and for all (the argument goes) is to ensure that Europe's governments do the bidding of the tsar and remove, by force if necessary, any that defy him.
 
2022-01-24 3:35:43 PM  
Putin is a pussy. Assassinate him directly to show the generals who is boss. Send 500k soldiers to the border, now. If Pootie sneezes, nuke 'em, in mockba.

Yes.  Putin said, set up a smokescreen for our Ukraine invasion and the admirals took it literally.

No, they did that because they hated the English. The enemy of my enemy and all that.
