General Russia Invades Ukraine

The problem facing the Ukrainians is they are being worn down in the East by the Russians with severe losses, which they admit to. In turn the Russians have adjusted their tactics and now have the Ukrainians under severe pressure. There is one area where they are lauding the Ukrainians as they could get to the Russian border. Meanwhile the Russians have blown up three vital bridges behind them, sounds like a trap.

There doesn't seem to be much Russian activity in the West. This is where all the donated arms will come in through Poland. They will be very exposed to Russian air and missile attack.

This war needs to be stopped now, unfortunately Zelensky doesn't get to make the decisions. They are made in Washington and less so, London.

As accusations seem to be made without proof. I saw that people are saying Zelensky suddenly has a $30 mill mansion in Miami

Stopped by who? The whole world has asked Russia to stop invading but they've gotten worse. Are you saying that the Ukraine should surrender to the country that's invading them? And that the West is preventing Zelensky from doing so?

Maybe, just maybe, the Ukraine are standing up to the bully. What else can they do, there's no guarantee that Russia would let them live either way. Putin's killed a shitload of civilians so far.

If mansion ownership is a dick measuring contest, Putin is a porn star. He does have those racy calendars, he's a man's man.

NATO should be trying to broker a ceasefire at the very least, not ramping things up.
The US now admitting this is a proxy war with Russia, which is super dangerous. Two nuclear powers going toe to toe. No one is going to win here.

The US shit me, they don't need to be involved in any way whatsoever, Europe was already supplying more than enough help. They can't help themselves though the dickheads. It's a big continuous fuck you to Russia IMO. Trust a Republican on Fox to stir shit up, it could just be an extreme opinion like the idiot Russian politician that wanted to nuke Britain on Russian TV a few weeks ago. Does he actually have any real power?

I don't see how this is resolved, it's gone too far now. I get the pre-emptive strike narrative that's used to justify the invasion but the response (if it's true) is like hammering a nail in with a sledgehammer.

Absolute bullshit. Ever wonder why Ukranians still have food, power, water and electricity in the middle of a war?
Don't buy into this genocide bullshit.

Tragic

Tragic

Ukraine has historically never been an independent country, at least not consistently. The Poles, Russians and Germany have been invading and occupying it at different times.

The modern mess started with the Soviet induced famine in Ukraine, millions died. Not long after the Nazi's invaded and were welcomed as liberators by a sizeable part of the population, which was understandable. They helped the Germans hoping that would secure their homeland. This resulted in Ukrainians as concentration camp guards and SS soldiers. As in all Eastern Europe and Russia there has been anti Jewish feeling in parts of the population Ukraine is no different.

Of course the Germans had no intention of letting the Ukrainians have their own country, they even had their HQ in Lviv as a sign they did not recognise Kiev as a capital of a country that did not deserve to exist. So that resulted in different groups fighting the Germans, others the Russians, even fighting both. I believe the final resistance against the Soviets finished in the mid 1950's.

After WW2 the Ukraine area became an important military and industrial area based around Kiev as it's capital. Areas like the Donbass and Crimes were given by Moscow to administer as a regional capital. Once the Soviet Union collapsed those administered areas were with Ukraine.

In 2014 the Maidan coup, backed by the US happened. Extremist members of the Ukraine passed laws banning Russian culture and language. This entailed about 30-40% of the population, mainly Donbass and Crimea. Ukraine tried to enforce the laws and the ethnic Russians fought back bringing us up to date.

Previously I wondered why after 8 years the Russians acted now. They claim that Ukrainian shelling of Donbass civilians had increased several fold and that the Ukrainians wer about to launch an assualt into Crimrea. Is it true, who nows what the truth is about anything there,
I enjoy you sharing your knowledge of the history coz I know bugger all about it, keep it up!

Very nice video. Extremely dangerous being near a forward artillery position, counter battery can be automated.

The editing of the artillery piece and the HQ directing fire was a slick move. Thats how it works in an ideal world. But unlikely UKR HQ would dedicate such resources to a reserve section manning a single gun 😂

Lots of questions;

Do you think they will surrender? You're in the military right, would you surrender when you still had the ability and will to fight? I wouldn't if those shifty eyed Australian bastards invaded us.

Is it typical for a country to lose ALL it's food, power and water in the middle of an invasion? Don't the invading forces also need those three things to function? There's been plenty of reports from occupied regions where the power was out and food was scarce and I don't see any logical reason why they'd lie about it. I have to assume that you're referring to the fact that Russia hasn't gone for a scorched earth strategy on the whole of the Ukraine. I don't think the Russian people would tolerate it.

I have a bad feeling that Putin isn't the worst option available and his successor will be a military man instead of a politician. That's a lot of power to wield in aggressive hands.

Fighting for egos sake in a non-genocidal situation is madness. There is zero evidence Putin plans to exterminate the Ukranian people.

As pointed out, Ukraine has a long and convoluted history. How much worse would the average Ukrainian be under Putin? I'm not sure.

Yes. You immediately target those facilities. Denying all resources is probably a borderline low level war crime, but as long as you allow refugees to flee, it's probably acceptable.

Militaries *should* bring all that with them.

There's definitely going to be logistic issues in a war 😂

It could be that he's been forced into the decision by the noise of the military heads asking why he hasn't showed strength in the face of Ukranian defiance over the last 8 years and especially last year if Gizzy has his facts right.

Russians only respect power so as soon as the old lion shows signs of slipping, a young lion is going to fight him for the leadership. If he's as sick as is being reported, Russia needs him to appoint a successor before he's replaced with someone far worse.

It's still just an American generals opinion though.

Stuff also posted this..

Written last February. :rolleyes::rolleyes:

The US military is full of bullshitters as well, many of their officers are Trumpers after all.

However the Merkins have been fighting wars non stop, in some form, ever since Vietnam. They have a culture of experienced junior officers and NCOs.

They learned from Vietnam that putting a kid in a uniform and giving him a gun does not make a soldier.

The Russians went into the Ukraine with boys in uniforms, poorly equipped, poorly fed, poorly led and poorly motivated.

Putin is fooked.

More like bombing the shite out of those places, and they got their arses kicked in Afghanistan, Also their army is boys in uniform with a gun, no more no less. Their training is apparently shite.

I can see Putin trying to hang o until Trump get back into the White House though. That might be his best option. Seriously.
