I mean, what if we were not nice to them and they decided to do nuclear things?! What would we do??!?!?
 
2022-08-08 2:18:30 PM  
If there's one thing that Russia learned from Chernobyl it's that the prevailing winds will carry the radiation westward, so they probably don't care.

If the radiation from this particular farkup blows over a NATO country, I would consider that a perfectly valid reason for NATO to step in and put an end this bullshiat.

Meanwhile, Europe sits there and watches, saying "My, isn't that terrible?"

Yes, it is farking terrible, and I'm puzzled why you bastards aren't doing more. After all, you didn't like it when the same shiat was happening to you 80 years ago.

Europe has been thoroughly neutered, apparently. Decades of relying on the US to fight their battles for them, and they don't know how to pick up a rifle anymore.

This shiat needs to be done with by the end of the year. But nobody on the European continent seems to want to lift a finger to do what is necessary to stop it.

If Ukraine would just be reasonable and unconditionally surrender, all of this could be avoided.

But I guess they want war.

I'm so far left, your simple minds can't even comprehend it.  And highly educated too.

It's a good opportunity to clear excess and redundant stockpiles of last generation munitions and weapons systems to make way for record profits for defense manufacturers.

So brave to be sending off other to die for what you think should happen. How about you keep your WWIII fever dreams to yourself.

Is this the plant where a Russian general gave his troops a speech about this being a scorched Earth offensive, and reportedly ordered them to plant explosives there?

You mean nobody in Europe wants to start World War III and die in nuclear fire?  Gee, I wonder why not.

Like it or not, Russia has nukes, and they provide a bit of a veto over a lot of military options.
 
2022-08-08 2:26:09 PM  
This is their plan.

How else do you turn someplace into "scorched earth" without firing a single nuclear weapon? You blow up the nuclear power plants. They learned the hard way what happens when one goes sideways, and now they're thinking if they just have all of them go the same way Chernobyl did, then it's an easy way to get everyone out of an entire area.

It's insidious and of course it would be the way the Orcs would want to win something by losing. "If we can't have it, no one can."

If Russia is opting to intentionally melt down reactors in the most violent way possible. Europe would have to intervene one way or the other. Chernobyl was devastating, but there was an active effort to clean it up (even if it was not optimal). A runaway meltdown that is encouraged and left running would be WAY WAY worse.

All I know is every time I look out my window, either at home or at the office, I expect to see big mushroom cloud off in the distance.

I'll expect, the unexpected.

It's funny that the Russians are trying to blame Ukraine for the hits on the plant. The world has been watching as Russia shoots masses of dumb rockets while Ukraine uses drones to land shells in the bathroom window of the crapper where Russian generals use the can, it's not hard to figure out who is shooting up the power plant you morons.

Of course they are. They are blaming the Ukraine's for not surrendering quick enough...."if they would surrender and become one with mother Russia, none of this would've happened"

Perhaps you aren't clear on how MAD works. You should check it out some time. Despite Trump, other world leaders aren't toddlers and can understand how escalation works.

Clearly it's all Ukraine's fault. If they hadn't been so full of Not-Zs Russia would never have had to invade and this wouldn't have happened. Research it out...

That was what the West was thinking at the time. However when the incident occured the winds were blowing directly toward Moscow. The Kremlin decided to use cloud-seeding over some nondescript area in between to get rid of the fallout. It worked, and festivities could ensue without worry. In Moscow, that is, the folks at Pripyat had quite the hangover.

You had to get very specific with that description, pal. It won't matter who is the parent of what or where if Russia does set off a nuclear explosion, either intentionally or accidentally. They'll be wishing they had done something instead of watching a stupid soccer game when the radiation poisoning sets in.

Doesnt really matter if they are online or not, though it would be better to shut them down. They continue to generate enough heat to melt the rods for a long time afterward (> week)

Hahahahaha

FTFA:

Russian forces seized the plant in March, just over a week after the invasion began, but it is still run by its Ukrainian staff. Around 500 Russian soldiers and 50 military vehicles are at the plant, Energoatom said.


Russia has been there militarily occupying the plant since MARCH.  They are apparently shelling themselves according to you geniuses.

As long as they keep lying and working the gimmick, they will get pro Russian stooges in the West to explain how this whole thing is Ukraine's fault.

Everyone is being lined up to a cliff and are being told to jump or you will be pushed. Do you comply or resist?

MAD has flown out the window, it does not matter. It is no longer a deterrent because we are in a position where it is a valid military option we must consider versus a convoluted strategy of mutually assured peace.
