It is a blatant lie. as the video does not portray what you say it does.


The video makes full introduction who are those people called "russian bikers" and shows them riding in Crimea and participating in mass show in Sevastopol.

This is a war of wills, not war of armies.

The big challenge here is: will the Russian Tsar be Uncle Sam's bitch.

The instinctive answer is no. Russians will overwinter this, and grow towards east rather than west. Basically the history is repeating events from 1700s, when Peter the Great ruled and his vision of westernized Russia did backfire. So, the Russia will arm the boarder, keep itself - and the west - alert, and focus on evolving relations with rest of the world.

In time, treaties in place with India and China, Russia might evolve at some point a secondary banking system. Not based on Euro, not based on Dollar, but something else. Perhaps a common BRIC accounting unit (BRIC referring here to BRIC countries), or then perhaps the Chinese Renminbi. This system could be resilient to the turbulence which both Euro and Dollar are currently suffering from.

Who knows. But I do not believe sanctions will make Russian political leadership to dodge an inch. The wealthy oligarchs in Russia might scream like pigs, but freedom has its price too.


That would require the rest of the BRIC nations to be antagonized to the west to the same point as Russia.

Bricsnations didn't bother to support Russians invasion of Ukraine nor its illegal occupation of crimea. Why try and bring them into the conversation?

It's absolutely mind boggling the amount of absolutely ignorant people that beat a nuclear war drum like it's something they themselves might live through. They honestly believe one side could win during a full release of nuclear weapons between Russia and the U.S. Perhaps many of these people have been brainwashed into believing such asinine nonsense, or maybe these people are under the age of 12, but in either case these warmongering fools obviously do not grasp the concept of M.A.D. (mutually assured destruction) Go look it up. Little tip, 70% of both countries populations would be killed during the initial salvo of ICBM's between the two countries. And that's just the start, you then have ICBM silos that weren't taken out during the first exchange as well as strategic bombers loaded with very high yield nuclear bombs and stand off nuclear missiles. Not to mention the numerous nuclear subs able to rain hell down on any nation in under 6 minutes notice.

Ignorant and uneducated fools that honestly believe a nuclear conflict is winnable might want to educate themselves a little before writing complete lunacy. First, go watch the movie Threads and then The Day After. What you see take place in the U.S. and Great Britain in those two movies would also be taking place across Russia. Good luck.

Russia's response will not military, they are not going to start a losing shooting war.
To put things in perspective

The US Air Force alone is more than twice the size of Russia's

The US Navy alone dwarfs Russia's fleets

The US military alone has 1.3 million active duty members, Russia has over 700K. NATO in total has over 3 million active duty members.

The US is a member of 4 military alliances, NATO, Rio Pact, Treaty of Manilla, ANZUS and has mutual defense treaties several nations. All these treaties treat an attack on any member as an attack on all. In theory an attack on the United States would activate treaties with 50 nations. And that does not count many other US allies not covered by direct treaty.

So let us put the idea that a sane Russia would ever conduct any military action against the US. The results would not be good for Russia.

When you are weak, appear strong."

God Bless,

According to this article, Russia is ramped up for armed conflict against the US over sanctions imposed on Russia by the US over its role in the Ukraine crisis.



What kind of response? Could be sanctions against the US and other countries as Russia has done before. Your OP is deliberately misstating the facts in that article.


That's the title of the article, not my words....

According to this article, Russia is ramped up for armed conflict against the US over sanctions imposed on Russia by the US over its role in the Ukraine crisis.



In its bid to impose more sanctions on Russia for its actions concerning Ukraine, the US Congress approved unanimously a new set of provisions over the country. Russia warned the West previously that if it pushes through with the bill then it will retaliate accordingly. There are now concerns about Russia's next move.

The sanctions cover lethal weapons and similar aid for Kiev. The passing of the bill goes against President Barrack Obama's stand. Previously, the president clarified that he does not want to push for additional sanctions unless the rest of Europe is on board with it.


So, what does ATS think? Are the war drums beating just a little harder or is it just more talk?

I just read that article at the link provided, then did a control F search for 'armed' which does not appear in the article at all. Instead it says:



"Undoubtedly, we will not be able to leave this without a response."
