US Set To Send Ukraine Patriot Missiles In Huge Escalation

Supplying them would help "bring the war to an end as soon as possible", Johnson said.

(sure will - but not in the way he thinks)

-If approved, this could be a tipping point in the conflict leading to direct confrontation between nuclear-armed powers given transfer of Patriots would mark the longest-range missiles sent to Ukraine thus far.

Whatever it takes - to kill the west - forever. Then we can all live like the Europeans.

I think it was painfully obvious. Here are superior western weapons that are supposed to guarantee the victory against Russian savages. And here are those weapons destroyed. That's it.

No need to respond to me with your usual verbal diarrhea of seventeen youtube clips, pseudo expert opinions, ramblings about hardware design, twenty Twitter messages, Russian translated media and made up movie posters [icon_lol2.gif]

Evil super villains? Russians in general, no. Putin and his cronies, most definitely yes. Not like we would have to worry about them taking over the world however, they can't even take over a much smaller, weaker and poorer country. Very capable of destroying the world for sure, but no chance in taking much of anything over.

Bunch of goofs. Yes, indeed, excellent choice of words! The Russian military leadership could absolutely be described as a bunch of corrupt and incompetent goofs.

I really can't blame the general rank and file of the Russian military for their ineptness as they have been continuously lied to by their leadership and sent into a situation most of them want nothing to do with and with little or no training or even basic equipment. It's really no wonder their morale is in the toilet.

If the "Ruskies" were "stomping them to dust" as you claim, why are we are day 300 and something of this 4-day "Special Military Operation"? The truth is they are stomping each other to dust with massive loss of life on both sides.

Thanks for the laugh though. :130:

A bunch of goofs. The leader's a goof, the commanders are goofs, the propagandists are goofs, and the fanboys... well, I'm sure you know where I'm going with this. :smt045 Stomping them to the dust. Hardly, it's not the Ukrainians that are burning their soldiers at night in garbage dumps to hide the losses. No, that's the goofs. Ukrainians mourn each and every loss.

I see we have some senior Western political and military leadership on the forum, greetings

"Sir! The Russians have destroyed our basic infrastructure, killed a generation of men, everybody else is fleeing, what to do?"

"Hmm... im gonna squeeze my eyes together really tight, wish i may, wish i might, Russkies go home tonight!"

Job done.

Morale appears to be high amongst the Russian soldiers in Sevastopol, Ukraine. Well, at least amongst the ones that didn't get shot by the Russian Soldiers in Sevastopol, Ukraine. Yeah, so that happened and nope, not posting that video here.

As I was saying last night, the 58th Russian Army insignia lives on.

The entire command staff posted to Melitopol on December 11th - not so much.

Wow, reports are 1 system to be sent, with several months of training first. Game changer...

$3mil per missile... how much are those washing machine drones again?

Next..

Interesting to hear Germany can't expand ammo production because a key supply of cotton lintners can only be sourced from China (our dirty commie enemy) and they have a 9 month backlog.

But hey, Ukrainians so mighty all they need are rocks and sticks

13 for 13 intercepted Shahed 136 drones, with it appears, two buildings damaged in Kyiv. One of the downed drones has "For Ryazan" written on it. (The airbase hit early last week with the three fatalities.)

Kievs FM was quoted in the Globe yesterday as saying "The Russians are up to something", similar to the NATO assesment, that they may launch a renewed offensive in Q1 2023.

Makes sense, they are likely waiting to organize their forces and hoping another few million civilians clear the battle zone, off to Germany. Ukraine is desperately short of fuel, ammo and bodies already, and only declining more.

And this time Russia will not *bleep* around with understrength forces. The Ukrainians can either fight and be killed, or surrendee. But I don't think the Russians want this dragging on much longer.

Ummm... you used the plural, its singular, 1 missile battery is going to Ukraine. I guess it has multiple launchers.

Did ya know the battery radars cost $1 billion, yes, billion each. Hopefully the Russkies dont break it

And, frankly, they're not that good.
