If Putin is stupid enough to open up a second military front with Finland, the Russian "military" is going to have its ass kicked in so hard their anus will fly out of their mouth.

The Winter War,[F 6] also known as the First Soviet-Finnish War, was a war between the Soviet Union and Finland. The war began with a Soviet invasion of Finland on 30 November 1939, three months after the outbreak of World War II, and ended three and a half months later with the Moscow Peace Treaty on 13 March 1940. Despite superior military strength, especially in tanks and aircraft, the Soviet Union suffered severe losses and initially made little headway. The League of Nations deemed the attack illegal and expelled the Soviet Union from the organisation.

They're struggling with one front, and have already lost their best tank divisions and used up many/most of their best rockets and missiles. And the UK just signed a defence pact with Sweden and Finland and already has troops in Estonia, fifty miles away and bordering Russia.
 
2022-05-13 10:05:39 PM  
I have it on good authority that if Finland does not instantly surrender, then they are warmongers.

I saw this on Reddit earlier.  Someone in Finland estimated they maybe get 1% of their electricity from Russia, and several Finns suggested bad towns to cut off if they needed to :)

Russia hasn't figured out in all this time that the arrangement has been for the Finns' convenience, not theirs...?

Sweden and Finland support the Kurdistan Workers Party, which Turkey doesn't like (and in fairness, both the US and the EU as well). This is just Erdogan using NATO as leverage to force them into line.

Just mention the name "Simo Häyhä" to Russians. It has much the same effect as mentioning "Nathan Bedford Forrest" to various Union brigadier generals.

It sounds like it's the expected consequences of Western sanctions blocking payments to Russia. They're not going to deliver electricity or gas for free. Let's hope that the loss of revenue hurts them more than the lost electricity hurts Finland.

As Einstein put it, I know not with what weapons WW3 will be fought with. But WW4 will be fought with sticks and stones.

We're not at WW3 yet and I suspect there is a window with Putin's name on it if we get there. Nuclear war would be bad for business.

Len Artell: What's the bet these 'payment problems' are Russia demanding they pay in rubles?


That, and Finland has decided to join NATO.  2 + 2 = Russia hissy fit.

Next up: Russia threatening to nuke Finland if they don't pay off their account using Rubles (after already paying using agreed currency) and sign over their country to Russia as a vassal State.

I'm nearly to the point of preferring to just be nuked than have to listen to another hollow threat.
 
2022-05-13 10:33:41 PM  
Before the Revolution, Finland was part of Russia, and since WWII the USSR/Russia has expected them to play nice with them. Likely Putin sees Finland the way he does Ukraine, as a part of the Russian empire to be reclaimed. Good luck with that.

I confess that I don't have a great grasp of history, particularly for areas outside of the USA where I live, but I fell down the Wikipedia rabbit hole last night reading about The Winter War.  Holy crap, just do a find-and-replace of "Finland" with "Ukraine" and it could describe the events of the past couple of months, right down to the Russian false flag operation of shelling their own troops to generate a casus belli.

The russians really haven't changed much, have they?

Given how far the leader of Turkey has his head so far up Putin's arse, I seriously doubt Finland will be accepted into NATO.
