#1 A nice idea for activating the civilian militia.
How will it stand up to advancing armor?

#3 Like they did in 1920es & after 1945?

#4 Seems like they did this during the Crimea snatch.

IIRC, only one commander ended up being effective and they went and arrested him for conducting war in the Olde Style, instead of the new way of giving up their location by dinking on their phones then catching artillery.

Not too well, especially since Biden won't send them any anti-tank missiles.

Should have previewed that previous comment. Dunno what happened to the part that was supposed to be italicized.

#7 The Ukraine situation was used to get at Trump. I really don't care what happens there.

#9 I think Russia has claimed that their occupation of the Crimea and eastern Ukraine is to protect ethnic Russians.

As bad as this claim is, there is little ethnic Russian presence in central and western Ukraine.

#10 Well is the Ukraine going to conduct a tactical, strategic , or phycological campaign against the Russian or a combo job of all three. Photo's of dead children can hurt diplomatic relations for Russia, How much pain are the Russians willing to put up with for a warm water port ?

#12 Theory is to stop the fire while it is small so it doesn't get too big to stop later.

#14 Theory is to stop the fire while it is small so it doesn't get too big to stop later.

Reality is there is no threat to Western Europe, or to Eastern Europe, but only an internecine former USSR squabble between Russia and another one of the former Soviet republics.

This one happens to be roughly 40/60 Russian and non-Russian (though Slavic and 100% Russian-speaking along with the native tongue that's almost indistinguishable from Russian).

If we intervene in this affair in Russia's backyard, we will have reached the ultimate in globalist hubristic stupidity.

And Putin will wrong-foot us again, just as he wrong-footed Soetoro the Fool again and again and again.

That point was reached when Plugs and Kam became president and VP.
