I just realized, if you took the dumbest human on earth,
someone like Melanie Joly ("I support you if you want to croak over there")
this dumb person would realize:
1 - Ukraine has a pipeline from Russia going through it
2 - Ukraine had the Black Sea Fleet on it's territory - Russia - a Superpower - was paying rent
3 - One third of Ukraine are Russians.

And there's more, but even the dumbest people would know UKRAINE CAN'T BE HOSTILE TO RUSSIA and should stay neutral.

So from now on we can call it America's war. It's not Putin's war. American warmongers made this war and is now making
$billions from it. Every Canadian paid into America's war. And see the price of food now? $4.00 for organic galas. $7.00 for grapes. Thanks American warmongers. :swear:

If the numbers you make up, and the factors you consider important impress you, who am I to argue?

I know for a fact people slightly smarter than the dumbest person on the planet won't read the Budapest Memorandum. Matter of fact, one of them even quoted a paragraph from John Mearsheimer on this thread, while being completely oblivious to the fact he published an article in 1993 warning of this exact situation we're looking at today.

What do these words mean to you?

The Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United States of America reaffirm their commitment to Ukraine, in accordance with the principles of the Final Act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe, to respect the independence and sovereignty and the existing borders of Ukraine.

ETA: Budapest Memorandum? Actually wait... I know you won't read it, so let me break it down for you. At the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Ukraine was the third most powerful nuclear power on the planet. It didn't just hold Soviet nuclear assets, it made them.

It had:

130 --- UR-100N intercontinental balistic missiles (ICBM's) that each held 6 warheads.
46 --- RT-23 Molodets (ICBM's) that held 10 warheads each.
33 --- Heavy bombers

Roughly 1,700 nuclear warheads in total and the capacity and technical knowhow to make more. As you mentioned, it also had the black sea fleet and the ship building capacity. What it didn't have was the desire to hold the world hostage to a nuclear threat and imperial ambitions to attack its neighbor's.

Thus, the Budapest Memorandum. Ukraine destroyed the warheads, and the capacity to make more, in exchange for security assurances going forward. December 5, 1994 is when that paragraph above was signed.

Negotiate with the Russians? [icon_lol2.gif]

Who are you people trying to kid? The Russians are unilaterally tearing up the second most important Nuclear Non-Proliferation agreement made in my lifetime. "Shame on me" - no! Shame on you, for sleeping through history classes and taking the peace and security you've known for granted.

This whole mess started in 2014 when a democratically elected government (election recognized by the west) was overthrown, apparently democracy dosen't matter as long as its a government we don't like being overthrown. Than you had this quasi-fascist government that's taken hold ever since openly racist against Russians.

You're awfully good at asserting opinion as fact. Hilarious is the fact you want me to view an actual neo-Nazi's twitter feed. White Nationalist, antisemitic conspiracy theorist Richard Spencer's ex-wife. You can't be serious? No, I take that back, you probably are... :smt045

For example, Stepan Bandera is a national hero if, and only if, you believe a Russian produced TV show that aired in 2008. If you go by more scientific measures, (and I know you won't from past experience) a KIIS survey produced for the Annual Conference of the Canadian Political Science Association, Montreal, June 1-3, 2010, shows 5% of Ukrainians expressed "very positive" and 8% "mostly positive". Whereas 29% of Ukrainians had a "very negative opinion" and 16% had a "mostly negative opinion".

Do you even read the articles you link to? I mean it's right there on the Wikipedia page. All the exact same disinformation technique we know and love from Covid. Nina even has "ResearchGate" papers on her twitter feed to push the same conspiracy TT is pushing above. All they need to do is give you a line and a link and you all start repeating... over and over again. What did Joesph Goebbels call you guys? Useful something-or-others. (Credit to the German people, the gov't was feeding them pervitin (crystal meth) like it was smarties. Now a days all it takes is a counter narrative, a link (they won't read it) and a twitter feed.

35% of Ukrainians believed the organizations associated with Bandera were involved in the mass murders of Ukrainians during WWII.

http://www.cpsa-acsp.ca/papers-2010/Katchanovski.pdf

35,000 Ukrainians, mostly of Jewish descent, were slaughtered in two days at gunpoint near Bucha, by NAZI soldiers. (Real NAZI soldiers, not the fictional pretend ones Putin created to dehumanize Ukrainians and gain support for his war.) You know, the folks that actually hate and look down on Jewish people, like Nina and her ex-husband Richard Spencer. (OMG, I'm still laughing at that one.)

Here's a photo of the Drobytsky Yar memorial after the Russian invaders desecrated it, in early March.

Image

Bet that Russian propaganda pipeline you're connected to didn't mention any of that, right?

Why is it always the same crowd? Why can't they ever stay on topic?

Bandera was involved in the massacre of Jews and Poles not traditional ethnic Ukrainians.

George Soros, the Hungarian-born billionaire behind the globalist open borders Open Society Foundation, has been named the second-most influential figure in Ukraine according to a prominent Russian-language Ukrainian newspaper.

The Kyiv-based newspaper points out that, “through the organizations financed by him, Soros can influence economic and political life in all of Ukraine.”

The paper writes that Soros, who is known for his active involvement in Ukraine’s economic and political life for more than 20 years, maintains a unique position of power through the Open Society Foundation and the dozens of other organizations he funds in the country.

Now why would he be that important to Ukraine, I wonder? But I like the youtube comments on the lizard-like guy.

Can someone please send me in the direction of Soros' time management book? How does he do it all? I must know.

Breaking News: Russian Kids terrorized in Donetsk - America's war.

The war in Ukraine was started in 2014 by the Americans. :smt045

$5 billion corrupt American dollars flowed into Ukraine after the pro-Ukraine president, Victor Yanukovich - was booted out by America. That's when Victoria Nuland, the goon hired by Obama, gave cookies to the Ukrainian people to show them she considers them to be dogs - here's a treat.

Also, George Soros (is he a lizard) - hated for the way he screws people over, all over the world was so satisfied when he said "that was the birth of the new Ukraine" when snipers opened fire in Kiev killing seventy in 2014 - and injuring hundreds and :cuss: ing on democracy.

Image
Notice she also :cuss: s on democracy? Now Canadian taxpayers are paying for the war in Ukraine. Did you hear the news? Freeland is shoving our $billions into the war, while one kid in five in BC lives in poverty. Canada joined the war by giving $billions, and now we might be nuked - thanks Chrystia - you war loving idiot.

Does anyone else find it funny, when the Americans started the war in Ukraine - on Donetsk -
bombing their airport, and slaughtering 14,000 people, and terrorizing (genocide) those people for eight years - it was in the most prosperous area of Ukraine?

It's nuanced they'll tell me. Stepan Bandera, George Soros, Victoria Nuland, Victor Yanukovich, 2014. Oh 2014, it all started in 2014, in fact there was no history worth considering before 2014, except for that period in the 40's, but nothing else. There's 32 years that simply didn't happen.

Budapest Memorandum - nope.
Kharkiv Pact - nope.
Fraud accusations around the 2012 election - nope.
Minsk Conundrum - nope.
Victor Yanukovich fraud charges - nope.

...the list goes on - and on, but it's nuanced they'll tell me.

Those 32 years don't matter, just like international law, duly signed agreements and international boundaries. To the "it's nuanced crowd" the fact that Russia negotiated an agreement with Ukraine for the lease of the bases in Sevastopol makes perfect sense, "because Crimea is Russia". *Insert bewildered dog with head tilted sideways smile here*

Anyways, I don't know how to argue with these folks and I'm even less sure why anyone would.

So hey, how about a couple rounds of "pick your fighter"?

The first one I've got is set up for the non-twitter users in the crowd.

Here we go... Pick your fighter:

or,

Me, I'm on the side that isn't threatening you with the use of nuclear weapons, the side that respects international law and the side that carries itself with dignity. The side that every political party that sits in Ottawa is on. Russia can't win this war - and they won't. It's hard to imagine anything good coming out of a war as ugly as this is. Myself, I just hope when all is said and done, the Russian people will fight for a better life for themselves. At least half as hard as they are fighting for a better life for Putin and his gangsters.

Not a bad plan though, all things considered. The kid is facing 8 years as it stands. The penalty for avoiding conscription is 10 years. There's something about that look on his face that says, "I've done the math".

:smt045

All in all, there seems to be some internal issues with the conscription call up and even Putin's chief propagandist is disappointed.

Russian Media Monitor - - -> https://twitter.com/i/status/1574431253780398080

In other news, apparently the first wave of conscripts has arrived in the Luhansk region.

Google Machine translate: It seems that the first echelon of mobilizations in the Russian Federation arrived in the Lugansk region. The stench is already denounced by ZSU officers like 200 and 300. Let's die for Putin's VV, I want to help my health.
*sigh* Hopefully the Russians can come up with some gun oil so the next batch of little sunflowers can clean up those rifle barrels while they carry them forward the next few kilometers.

"Putin's chef" is finally forced to admit he's been cooking up a little more than Putin's lunch. Ha ha ha, I guess those videos of him recruiting in prisons finally forced his hand.
Yevgeny Prigozhin, a Russian businessman and a close ally of Vladimir Putin, has admitted that he founded the Wagner Group private military company in 2014, the first public confirmation of a link he has previously denied.
...
Wagner has been accused of committing human rights abuses in Ukraine, Syria, Libya, Central African Republic, Sudan and Mozambique. The group’s alleged co-founder, Dmitry Utkin, has been linked to the far right and is believed to have named the group after Hitler’s favourite composer. The US and EU have imposed sanctions on Prigozhin and Utkin for their role in Wagner.
In the past, he's actually sued people that suggested he was connected with Wagner. He lost every case outside of Russia and won every case inside of Russia. Go figure?

You can read more here: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/ ... nary-group

I'm not going to post this video here, (because it really doesn't end well) but I suspect this is just the beginning.

Clearly hammered and staggering. Shouting while carrying the Russian flag and firing his weapon towards Ukrainian lines. The video of him carrying the flag forward is about 45 seconds long... about as long as it took to direct fire onto him.

Reportedly, the war is over for him and 3 of his giggling compatriots, but to his credit, he did manage to advance the flag and his rifle about 15 meters.

But hey, I'll post this video here... and you'll get the gist of it all.

KrAZ 255's. A Ukrainian made copy of the 200,000 Studebaker trucks the US sent the Soviet Union for WWII. I guess they are going to give them back?

How's the mobilization going? Well, prevention is the best and only medicine. Oh, and you'll all need to phone your wives...

Classic catch 22. Can't fight a war in another country and can't fight against the war in their own country. I get the impression there is a bit of a pushback going on. Not often, okay never, have I seen Margarita Simonyan and Vladimir Solovyov say anything negative about anything, other than the West, the US and NATO.

This one is really odd. :135: (somethings got to give here soon.)

Not much real news out there right now, as can be judged by the stream of drivel here. Unfortunately the Western advantages in Web Design and TikTok memes wont count for much once it kicks off again.

How about a link detailing the next tranche of weapons or cash to Ukraine?? Anyone??? Hmmm... maybe its not coming?
