I wish I knew what the equipment is going over there. I don't think any troops will be there, maybe advisers like Vietnam.
Russian equipment shot down the Malaysian Airlines jet, unless it was a false flag.
The problem is when Ukraine gave up their nuclear weapons, we (NATO) signed a security pact that we would protect their sovereignty. This not doing
anything would cause countries to never trust NATO and the West again. They probably already don't which is dangerous because they will look for
another power. Possibly buying nuclear capability from Pakistan or someone else. Many nuclear warheads have disappeared from Russian stockpiles after
the fall, and that includes 84 nuclear suitcase bombs that were never returned to the KGB upon the fall. If one of those missing warheads is used all
bets are off. So, it appears Canada is starting to honor the agreement with Ukraine in only the most uninvolved way. At some point troops will be
required or at least air power, and that means a major escalation of the conflict in a proxy war between Russia and NATO.
It will depend on the equipment and the involvement of other assets that will make the cold war being fought in other countries over Soviet expansion
and NATO containment either a hot or proxy war.
Something that should cause pause in anyone is the statement by a Russian PM in 2013 said that if the US used it's advanced conventional ability
against Soviet military that it would use nuclear weapons in retaliation. They said they could not keep up with technological advances and the arms
race in the us. They said that the US will be capable of striking anywhere on the surface of the Earth in 30 minutes or less with precision munitions.
Hence the nuclear threat.

On 11 December 2013, Vice Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin has warned that Russia will use nuclear weapons if it comes under an attack, adding that
this possibility serves as the main deterrent to potential provocateurs and aggressors.
"One can experiment as long as one wishes by deploying non-nuclear warheads on strategic missile carriers. But one should keep in mind that if there
is an attack against us, we will certainly resort to using nuclear weapons in certain situations to defend our territory and state interests",
Rogozin, the defense industry chief said on Wednesday speaking at the State Duma, the lower house.
ETA: Just saw what equipment they were sending. Not a worry to the Russians. However, pressure is on to provide real weapons and then there would be a
concern of Russia's response.
