With any luck he was strapped to one of those two scuds he fired off a day or two ago. Remember, if you wanna find him don't bother looking high and low, just look low.

8000 or so i believe... the real number doesn't actually matter. Its more than enough to blow the world to # several times over.

Edit: according to wiki it's 8,500 as of 2013

If he is allowed to take the Crimea without a fight what's stopping him from taking the rest of Ukraine and expanding his territory into other eastern block countries..


Because he doesn't want to.

Russia doesn't want the Ukraine either, but as the west was hell bent on putting in a muppet regime and thus securing a foothold in Putin's garden, the Russians have felt pushed into a show of force to remind the rest of Europe the fox loses it's fur, not its habits.

If the neighbours dog craps in your garden, the first time you warn the neighbour, the second time, you kill the dog.

Nobody knows for certain, after the fall of the curtain base commanders were selling them, and everything else that wasn't nailed down, on the blackmarket to pay battalion wages....Feffin' crazy.

Russia has put an end to army drills near the Ukrainian border and ordered troops to return to their bases, after a day of international pressure and the threat of US sanctions.


Looks like the Ruble has force a climb down.
But lets not forget that Russia is serious about Ukraine.

Take note West .. you pissed off the bear big time with your meddling

Scaremongering. The newspapers are full of melodramatic .lines. They are probably trying to distract us from something.

because sometimes its better to sit and wait for your enemy to move then commit yourself...

Sun Tzu said: -

Whoever is first in the field and awaits the coming of the enemy, will be fresh for the fight; whoever is second in the field and has to hasten to battle will arrive exhausted.

Therefore the clever combatant imposes his will on the enemy, but does not allow the enemy's will to be imposed on him.

If we do not wish to fight, we can prevent the enemy from engaging us even though the lines of our encampment be merely traced out on the ground. All we need do is to throw something odd and unaccountable in his way.

All this with the Ukraine is something odd and unaccountable..don't you think.

Why do you think he is as evil as you are? I say that because your thought process has become clear.
And that is the biggest issue.

We have also taken the historical and contemporary factors of the Ukraine issue into consideration.
Stop trying to exclude Russia from the political crisis they failed to mediate.


Looks like China has chosen to side with Russia for obvious reasons and Russia has already warned that any sanctions will lead to zero dependency on the Dollar and will force countries to bypass the Dollar...

2 interesting reads from Zerohedge.
It Begins: Gazprom Warns European Gas "Supply Disruptions" Possible


We had previously warned that Putin's "trump card" had yet to be played and with Obama (and a quickly dropping list of allies) preparing economic sanctions (given their limited escalation options otherwise), it was only a matter of time before the pressure was once again applied from the Russian side. As ITAR-TASS reports, Russia's Gazprom warned that not only could it cancel its "supply discount" as Ukraine's overdue payments reached $1.5 billion but that "simmering political tensions in Ukraine, that are aggravated by inadequate economic conditions, may cause disruptions of gas supplies to Europe." And with that one sentence, Europe will awaken to grave concerns over Russia's next steps should sanctions be applied.
