Hello i am here because there is far more news here than in the MSM, and i am here to learn more things.

Nice to meet you all.

PS i know Russia have a larger military force, but i cant for the life of me understand why UKRAINE are such wimps, and despite their officers kidnapped, soldiers killed, Crimea invaded and taken over, they still refuse to fire a shot, and are now running away.

I have searched thread after thread on here, post after post and nobody else has asked this, and this is why i am here - am i alone in the world with this question? it just boggles my mind why i seem to be the only person on the planet wanting to know how a country, could let itself be invaded without firing a shot. Is that the norm these days?

Anyway, nice to see all of you i will be keeping an eye out on all the threads, but i just can not understand why humanity seem to have lost something called self - respect/ standing up for yourself, sigh.

Thanks for reply that was useful, but it didnt have much to do with my concern

I find like i am almost alien in this world - i cant get my head round why none of you think its appalling that Ukraine will barely lift a military finger to defend themselves

As this is an introduction forum, we should keep the discussion leaning towards that here. You're free to discuss the Ukraine situation in any of the numerous on-going Ukraine threads around the site.

Welcome to ATS!

I don't understand it either.

Maybe knowing that it is suicide to fight Russia has something to do with it.

It is puzzling though.

Here's what I think - and no offence intended.

Judging by the tone and terms used ("cowards", "wimps" and so forth), either you are a small-time agent provocateur who'd like to see some sparks flying for personal amusement - or you haven't really thought about the situation, let alone ponder it in light of comparable historic situations - for example, the invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1939.

None of the scenarios above is likely to elicit many constructive responses.

This is the introductions forum, it is NOT a topical forum for discussing the issue in the Ukraine.

If you'd like to discuss that, please find your way to one of the dozen or so threads currently covering all things Crimea.

As this thread has devolved into a non-troduction, it is now closed.
