I think that was Japan. Before WWII in Europe Hitler had gotten rid of all those sanctions from the WWI Treaty of Versaille or just illegally ignored them. On the other hand sanctions on Japan were certainly a big thing in WWII.



ALMOST correct.

japan started the Asian theater of ww2 LONG before those sanctions were imposed.

Or even threatened.

The sanctions were imposed BECAUSE japan had ALREADY been invading it's neighbors and murdering 10s of millions.

We DID make many mistakes in Asia both before and during the early years of japan's war.

The embargo just wasn't one of them.

Time for the Russian people to unite and get rid of the kleptocratic dictator that has stolen their money and stamped on their freedoms and democracy with utter contempt for them.

This tweet is getting a lot of reposts-I don't know how true it is,but:



Germany, Italy, Hungary and Cyprus are blocking a decision to disconnect Russia from the SWIFT network.



twitter.com...


If that is true-There are 3 countries and an island who are putting their incomes from Russian money as more important than dead civilians in Ukraine.
The people of those 3 countries and an island should think hard about that-your governments literally care more about looking after their precious economies than people getting blown to pieces in a land not that far away.
That being the case,I doubt they GAF about their own people either,except as tax generators(guess we know that anyway).

I am not saying banning russia from using swift would instantly stop the invasion-but it would certainly have more effect than the sanctions so far implemented IMO.

Cutting Russia from Swift has been discussed by the US as well. The impression I got is it is on the table but was going to be reserved to see if Russia pulls back. Being I dont see that happening SWIFT will be cut probably within the next week (time frame is my own personal guess). Cutting Russia from SWIFT is a "nuclear" option in terms of sanctions (and not a nuclear war).

Also,

NATO has clarified how article 5 works. Article 5 can be invoked if a NATO member comes under cyber attack only. It is not a blanket criteria and will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

As a reminder -

Just so people know and understand. Information from war zones can become confusing as there will no doubt be info released from the players (on both sides) involved that might not necessarily be true.

As such take everything as a possibility and NOT as absolute truth.


The very first casualty in a war is the truth and all warfare is based on deception

I’m not a big fan of bbc news ‘fact checking’, since it’s often skewed with omissions and selective reasoning to promote a narrative. It can be just as pro-west as RT is pro-Putin.

So maybe someone here will debunk their debunking, but I’ll leave this here all the same. If nothing else it’s a reminder (not that most folk here need one) not to take anything we see or hear at face value:

Many misleading images have been shared online

ETA: just seen that Xcathdra has made the exact same point above. You’re bossing this thread and I’m grateful for your relentless updates 🍻

I wonder if Russia got Wing Loong 2 attack drones from China? These were devastating in Libya.

Not sure.. Something seems to be going on. I know NATO members put some electronic warfare aircraft in the air so they might be supporting that. 1 is over Romania and the other3 are over Poland. If military planes dont turn on their equipment (that civilian aircraft are required to have turned on) they wont show on flightradar. I have been unable to find the electronic warefare planes on flightradar (no surprise) so the tankers might be dealing with that as well as the additional forces the US dispatched to the region (another combat brigade).

One of the major issues I have been seeing is Russia, Belarus and Ukraine use some of the exact same equipment. I have come across several videos by different people attributing the images to one side or the other. I do know Russia vehicles are specially marked (probably to cut down on potential friendly fire incidents). I have also seen info that Ukraine has done the same to some of there equipment (specially marked).

With that said the markings look like they used a can of white spray paint. To me it would be easy enough to find destroyed equipment that is not marked and adding markings for whichever side needs the pr.

Just thought I would share. The Caspian Report has great videos about geopolitics. This one is from 3 weeks ago about
what a possible Russian invasion would look like. Its fairly accurate, definitely worth checking out.

Yup Ukrainian border guards assigned to the island went dark and they were unable to raise them. Ukraine border services is assuming the island was captured.


Ukrainian border guards: no connection with our servicemen on Zmeiniy, likely island captured

Can anyone verify this report? Sounds very strange.


UKRAINE/SYRIA - It appears 'the whole Russian Navy in the Mediterranean Sea (that we know of) sailed to Syria this morning while the invasion of Ukraine was unfolding' according to Defense analyst H I Sutton, writer for Naval News. Ukraine is also asking Turkey to cut its straits off to Russian vessels which would essentially be declaring economic war on Russia.

According to Naval News Russia reinforced the presence of its Navy in the Mediterranean a lot more than usual, which, according Naval News could be an outer defense layer for their naval operations in the Black Sea off of Ukraine. They also said it could be used to deter the involvement of NATO forces.


According to Naval News, the Russian Navy, including 'their major warships' did provide support in the Ukraine invasion, then were all sailing in 'close formation' and 'appeared' to be sailing to Tartus. Russia currently has a Naval base in Tartus, so it is likely assumed that is where they are headed.


Naval News called the Russian Naval formation 'unusual' and said that it was clearly visible with European Space Agency’s (ESA) satellite imagery. An image of the formation was taken by the Sentinel 2 satellite at 08:40 UTC today according to the news agency (Provided with due credit on our social media).


The news agency said the formation was only 0.9 miles across and 1.7 miles in length, which indicates that all ships are well within 'visual site' of one another. The satellite imagery showing the formation was taken as the Russian naval forces were already within Syrian waters and on a trajectory to the port of Tartus, Russia's naval base in Syria.


Naval News says that the concentration of Russian naval forces means that essentially the entire [visible] Russian Navy is located in one place whereas normally they would be operating in separate groups.


Naval News say they asses that 'it is likely' the ships might have separated once again into different groups, with some sailing to the Black Sea to 'support operations there' and would need to transit through the Bosporus Strait through waters claimed by Turkey which would be 'controversial'.

Entire Visible Russian Navy Sails To Syria In Midst Of Ukrainian War
