While it's funny to joke about another hypermilitaristic country getting beaten by a bunch of peaceful people, the sad truth is that a lot of good people are going to die.

That has always been the price of freedom. Let us not squander it.

Not sure it counts as adding another front when it's where a large part of the initial attack came from.

Russia wants to fix as many Ukrainian forces along Ukraine's northern borders as possible, in order to pull them out of the south and east.

So there will be threats and probes and more threats and the occasional attack.

The west should have put a peacekeeping force in Ukraine along their Belarus border after Russia pulled out.

If Putin had access to mass drivers, he'd use them in a heartbeat, and have Russian TV claim he was combating global warming.

Then it doesn't count as adding another front for Russia, either...

The average Belarusian is less likely to believe Putin's bullshiat, and more likely to support Ukraine than the average russian. If Belarus actually started shiat, instead of just Luka's sad posturing, I don't see it going well for White Russia.

"As I look at you, President Putin, I see a great hand reaching out of Russia. The hand is your hand. And I hear sound; the sounds of millions of people calling your name."

"My followers?"

"Your victims."

Russia is the type that says they'll pull out but never does. Jerks

If Belarus actually attacks Ukraine, even with Russian military support, it would very likely mean their army gets mauled and it's people end up revolting.

Unless Russia suddenly found a few thousand supply trucks that offensive is not going anywhere.

No. Your responses here are quite bizarre.

Part of me was hoping that Belarus would follow through on their threats to Poland.  There is no way Putin would have their back in a war with NATO at this point.

comrade: The west should have put a peacekeeping force in Ukraine along their Belarus border after Russia pulled out.


Good call. It seems like an obvious move. So why didn't they? Was it an oversight, or was there a reason?

There might be a tripwire problem where Russia launches some cruise missiles, kills a hundred or so of them and just says oooopsie, I thought they were Ukrainians, and laughs as the war widens as he threatens nukes.

It might be that Belarus would be hopelessly inept and leave itself open to rebellion, collapse, etc., which would spread to Russia proper. In other words, Belarus is having trouble resisting the temptation to have a punch at the same T*RBaby that Putin took a swing at. Ukraine has no trouble at all playing a defensive role.  Belarus is being played.

It is possible that all of this is being simply managed. Belarus pulls its forces down away from the Baltics just as Russia moves assets up to Finland. Now Putin wants Belarus to engage and strike southward. Putin is pushing in weaker and weaker units while having to hold back his better units. Ukraine is being given nothing it can't handle. Can we expect that Belarus has BETTER forces than Russia?

Which brings me to say that we are coming up on 100 days. That is the time when battlefield effectiveness drops like a stone. After 100 days, a losing force has lost its experienced people, its morale, its supplies, its momentum. A winning force reaches a peak in experience, morale, and maybe with supplies and momentum. So it might be that Belarus is a feint to cover Putin's retreat. He is done. His people are not going to perform for him anymore. And soldiers from Belarus might as well be walking into a buzzsaw.

tldr  peacekeepers would have helped Putin and Belarus more than they would help NATO and Ukraine. The overall goal probably is regime change.

I blame Jon Stewart for getting me into this. Who knew a monkey was a real animal?
