That assumes the next guy wants to de-escalate. Everything I read about Patrushev says he is the last person to expect to de-escalate anything. Do you know something about him I don't?

What, non precision guided munitions aimed at residential areas do less damage than guided ones deliberately targeted at them?

Where is the surprise?

Did I claim anything about "untold damage" etc?

The damage is what it is and there is real time footage of it.

Fortunately not "absolutely devastating".

Who said that?

You're thinking of a situation where the US installs a new president? Then I don't think it would be him. But I was just thinking about Putin dying, loosing an election or being couped.

Not sure what’s happening with you… but you keep jumping to conclusions and confusing fact with fantasy

I'm confused; that's what is happening.

The very reason I do not want to talk about how the conflict is going is that every answer I get is contradictory. I refuse to try to discuss the actual conflict because of that fact. You, yourself, earlier in this thread, advocated for overthrowing the Russian government and splitting up the country, whether the Russian people want it or not. You are literally advocating us doing to Russia the exact same thing you are upset about Russia doing to Ukraine!

You, sir, are the bully in this case. And you will never change my mind on that by advocating for destruction of a people or genocide or a literal destruction of another country. Those things identify you as a bully.

Start making some sense, and maybe we'll start understanding each other.

Good, that's the goal. Confusion creates doubt, doubt leads to fear and that's where they colloquial "they" want you.

Pick a side, go for broke and never look back. Oh, and don't forget to pay your taxes and vote in November.

Finally, don't look at the prices at the pump.

Prices at the pump are going down here in the UK.

They were absolutely extortionate now they are merely "HOW much"?!!!!

But 'The West' hasn't gone to war....and hopefully it won't have to.

I disagree. We are about as active in this war as we could get. The only thing Ukraine is providing is warm bodies for the slaughter. Those are US weapons, trained by US personnel, directed by US policy.

We have even had some people from the USA go there to fight on the ground... and were quickly and quite literally abandoned to Russian forces.

This is not a war between Russia and Ukraine, It may have started as a conflict between Russia and Ukraine, but now it is a war between Russia and the USA, with the USA using Ukraine as a skirt to hide behind.


As you correctly point out, there are many other potential Putin's around within Russia.
We must be careful not to foster the environment and atmosphere that would actively enable one of those to emerge in control.

To my eye, that seems to be exactly what we are doing.

At the end of the day, any country which tries to impose its will on other countries is fostering conflict and anger which will eventually lead to violence. That includes, yes, Russia's actions against Ukraine, but it also includes our actions against Russia. There are very few good guys in this conflict, and that could be quite the problem later on.

Step 1 - Russians defeat in Ukraine

Step 2 - Russias Color revolution

Step 3 - Russias territorial dismantling

So, you expect the West to invade and overthrow Russia then?

I have to ask this: it's not OK for Russia to invade and overthrow another country, but it is a good thing when we invade and overthrow Russia?

Not sure what’s happening with you… but you keep jumping to conclusions and confusing fact with fantasy

While on the subject of fantasy… Yes ABSOLUTELY I’d love to see what I wrote happen and think it’s necessary after Russias violent history and constant failed attempts and invading Europe, over centuries even, I’m just not that guy… I’d ensure once and for all the rouge nation of drunks were never ever again capable of their usual violent behaviour and a threat to peace in Europe ever again, that’s just how I roll

I DETEST A BULLY
I DETEST #TALKERS MAKING THREATS

HOWEVER… In the real world …. I have no say in that matter, however I’d wager something similar is being discussed in dark corners and plans to do just that occur when Russia loses

BUT … what you’ve essentially done is used all that honestly on my part, to bring a nonsensical question

Which is

Oh so Russia can’t destroy and invade Ukraine but the west can?

Huh?

Who started this war?

You can’t use a response to justify somebody stupid war

I’m just telling you there will be grave consequences for Russias actions which now span over hundreds of years

Destry it and may it never be a threat ever again

There definitely has been encroaching, but why?

Could it be the lithium surplus Ukraine offers. Sure would help with the green new deal!

I’m absolutely sure it isn’t about the Ukrainian people.

If I didn’t know better I’d guess this will all go away after some US election theft.

Then if anyone asks the databases were securely held in a Ukrainian kindergarten. Oh no! That evil Russian Rushed in and destroyed all the evidence of voter fraud. Bummer.

Obviously I don’t know better. I guess this is here for posterity.

Not posteriors TT. You have a none track mind.

Lithium, farmland, energy, you name it.

Ukraine actually has the capacity to be a stable, well off nation if it werent for eastern and western meddling. However that is fantasy talk


I think we can assume that China has its eyes on that lithium for sure and the US with its coming chip production endevours likely are eyeing the same.

IMO of course.

Russia will very likely become 100% dependent on China to have anything that sort of resembles an economy.
So it totally doesn't matter who'll have the say in Russia because it is going to be the lackey of whoever has the say in China.
And that's something for sure no matter how long it takes or how the war ends.
There's no turning back.

That's about exactly how I see this turning out.

Now, what do you suppose China will do with all that power?

500,000 tons of Lithium sure is quite the supply.

I absolutely agree China already wants it. So does US. Biden sure could use it to make way with his EV pipe dreams!

Would this be anything like that time the Russians tried to starve the Ukrainians to death? That kind of genocide? Pretty sure some Ukrainians remember that.

We’ve already told you… UKRAINE has already told you … yet you’re still confused?

GTFO of Ukraine

War Over

The End

What the problem actually is… which you seem to be confused over is what happens when Putin refuses to have his career end because of his failed war correct?

Putin knows his career ends in the The Hague, because let’s face it we all know the world doesn’t continue as normal without Putin GONE, FACT not debatable

Even if the war ended, his first trip outside Russia he’d be assassinated probably

After everything that man has said about the west and Ukraine he won’t be dying of natural causes

You might think that’s me being a bully but I can assure you that’s just a fact and a matter of time

It’s you lot who don’t seem to understand that is how it is now

And yes I still do think the fallout from Russias loss in Ukraine is going to implode Russia there will be huge unrest against the regime who brought this stupid war on to Russia and the Ukrainian people

Your problem INHO is you’re scared, we’re not we want justice whatever the cost or outcome

It won't matter. The powerful are sure nuclear war won't be as bad as advertised, and I bet we all glow the same whether we're Russian or American.
