And we have yet to see a proof of Russian troops in Ukraine, because all we have is ASSUMPTIONS.
Can you say for 100 certainty, they were Russian soldiers and not just an act so Ukraine would get help? What am i asking. Of course you can't.

The treaty of Budapest guaranteed Ukraines sovereign integrity for giving up it nuclear arms....
We are signatory to that treaty I believe and are duty bound to help fight the Russian hordes sweeping in from the east......
Nato has spend billions prepping for just that scenario and is ready with the arms to deal with it,,,,turn them loose I say....a promise made is a debt unpaid....
Nope, didn't see the words 'strike now' in it. Nothing to imply that either. No synonyms or hidden meanings either. Sorry, just not there.

But what of the morale of the Russians? Russia already has protests against sending troops to Ukraine. What happens when Putin actually admits that's what they're doing? We've also had a few interviews from Russian soldiers who have expressed fear at being sent to Ukraine. So clearly their morale isn't great either.
Russia clamping down on the media and dissidents, and Russia not going in while they can take Kiev in 48 hours are two of the clues.
