Who do u think would nuke them and why wouldnt they do the same for the Ukraine?
Serious questions.
Also who would win a war between china and the USA if it came to that? And would America be willing to risk going to war with china to defend another country?
Well the US are highly un reliable now hey.But if China invaded Australia Britain would see that as an attack on the commonwealth dragging NATO into an all out conflict.

India would join in. If China went that Rogue the threat of Nucoear retaliation would be on the table.

India are crazy enough to Nuke China.

North Korea is looney enough to Nuke India.

China and India are almost at war as it Is.

Who would win?

China can't win on its own.

Russia and China would win a joint conflict.

But I doubt any of this would ever happen coz we'd probably all die.

Agreed Taiwan are the target for China.

Putin just used one of the excuses the Yanks use to invade a country.. he called it peace keeping..

Yanks use the defending freedom excuse? And the western world buys into it, usually to share the booty.
Just like Iraq and the fake weapons of mass destruction. Oil grab
Gadaffi and his so called bad treatment of its people.. Oil and gold grab and to stop him from forming a United currency for African countries.
And the list goes on..

The western world are just a bunch of hypocrites with blood already on their hands.

I'm certainly no commy .. but capitalist have got a lot to answer for...
Yep.
Capitalism is killing us all.

I think the US has more nukes than Russia and China combined by fair margin. In saying that, they have enough between them all to destroy the world many times over.

Edit: turns out that Russia has more nuclear warheads than the US but it's anybody's guess whoses would be more devastating. The US military is far bigger than Russia's though.

Would have Putin done this if Trump was still in power? Serious question.
Let's be fair Trump is bat shit crazy and you would not have put it past him using nukes.
Biden on the other hand sanctions(slap of the wrist) being the current method of deterrence.

Very sad what is going on. Hope the West can deal with it. As China is watching.

Trump was in Russias back pocket anyway so yeah Putin would do whatever the hell he wanted.
Having a nut in charge of the US stock pile should never be seen as a viable stability platform.

Putin has no fear of Trump or Biden. He had more control over Trump though.

I honestly think he's done this to keep hold of power. He knows his government is unpopular, the poor uptake in their own vaccine is proof that the majority of the people don't trust the government but currently don't have an alternative to vote for. Putin poisoned the last guy that stood up to him.

Nobody wins a nuclear war.

Trump never had control over the stockpile anyway. The military leaders just told me he did so he'd feel special. They wouldn't give a loaded gun to the village idiot.

China calls for talks over Ukraine, green-lights Russian wheat import​

China repeated calls for talks to resolve the crisis in Ukraine while refusing to criticise Russia’s attack, and in a move that could help reduce the impact of Western sanctions against Moscow, approved imports of Russian wheat.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying told reporters that “the Ukraine issue is complex in its historical background ... what we are seeing today is the interplay of complex factors.

“We still hope that the parties concerned will not shut the door to peace and engage instead in dialogue and consultation and prevent the situation from further escalating.”

Although China has not endorsed President Vladimir Putin’s recognition of independence of eastern Ukraine’s separatist areas or Putin’s decision to send Russian forces there, Ms Hua said China “called on parties to respect others' legitimate security concerns.”

“All parties should work for peace instead of escalating the tension or hyping up the possibility of war,” Ms Hua said, repeating the language China has consistently used to criticize the West during the crisis.

“Those parties who were busy condemning others, what have they done ? Have they persuaded others?” Ms Hua said.

China and Russia have largely aligned their foreign policies in opposition to the US and its allies. Ms Hua did not describe Russia’s actions as an invasion or directly refer to the movement of Russian forces into Ukraine.

I remember Mao being quoted as saying something along the lines of because of China being so large & also having such a large & spread out population that "they can't kill us all"

And that was back in the 60's before they had a billion or so people to seemingly sacrifice

Whether that would be how it actually plays out or not, who knows ???

But it definitely shows how committed the CCP are to their philosophies

We would last 5 seconds if we were invaded because the left thinks the world is a lovely place full of diversity 🤣

Putin has many faults and lots of problems at home. However, over 30 years since the fall of communism and the separation of the Soviet Union, NATO despite promises to Russia has continued to advance Eastward. Now despite Russia declaring it a no go. NATO is openly courting Ukraine. Despite Russia repeatedly wanting limits to NATO set. Russia's concerned were dismissed out of hand. This is very recent. They called for Russia to de escalate while sending arms to Ukraine.

On 22/6/1941 the Nazis invaded Russia through Ukraine, as a result Russia lost up to 28 million people, so foreign forces in Ukraine provokes a larger fear in ordinary Russians, where very few families did not suffer losses in WW2. On top of that the US backed coup in 2014 had a strong neo nazi element which alarmed the Russians, which is reasonable given history.

On the other hand Ukrainians have reasonable resentment of Russians due to the forced famines in the 1920-30s. Significant numbers of Ukrainians welcomed the Nazis in 1941 and helped them throughout. Once given power in 2014 the first laws passed were anti Russian language and culture. Hence we have the Crimea and Donbass situations because both areas are Russia ethnically.

The answer to me is to remove the ultranationalist right wing from the Ukrainian Government and establish a form of neutrality between Russia and Ukraine. First being no NATO. Ukraine is an independent nation but needs to either peacefully let those who want emigrate to Russia or cede the Donbass to Russia.

All this has been stirred up by the US, Ukraine deserves security and so does Russia. My view is get the Yanks the hell out of it. There are many points of argument between Ukraine and Russia, but historically there are many family and social ties. All neighbours have to learn to live together, friendly and respectfully is the best way. That can be achieved if the West keeps out.

Watching a speech from Biden he seems to be quite with it. Talking and not missing his words. I know during the election watching the JRE there was speculation he was getting drugged to keep him focussed.

Might be cause he's reading off a prompter and its when he talks off a page or makes it up he gets in trouble.

I can’t see it lasting, but there will be a lot of blood spilt in the meantime. My view is once the Russian Oligarchs start hurting from sanctions, they’ll have Putin bumped off and pick someone else who is oligarch friendly. A gangster state where the head has gone completely rogue

Chernobyl has fallen to the Russians. I saw a documentary about that a few weeks ago, it's still emitting low levels of radiation.
If they take over that land hopefully the continue the maintenance. More the major bits over the reactor like the dome that has been constructed.

The squatters or whatever they call the people that sneak in and spend the night are a pretty minor concern.

The area wouldn't be hard to overtake as the border patrols are more to stop civilians going to the plant. Then the rest is pretty much deserted.

German soldiers could make a comeback to Ukraine 🤣
