1. Russia is a great threat to Europe
2. Russia has old weapons from the 70's and they have no gear and they are sick so relax bros.

Pick one Drip.
How about both? Russia's military has become so weak that the nuclear option (or even just threatening it) is all they have left.
Not a threat you say? You don't think Putin is crazy enough to use it?

Well, they have been running out of missiles and washing machines since March, they probably only have nukes left.

Especially now that they destroyed 30% of energy infrastructure in just two days with their rust buckets from 70s.

I have to respect the honesty here. It's rare.

Suprise! We were lying. :smt045

Russian Media Monitor - - - > https://twitter.com/i/status/1580026795558023170

And in other news... (wait, what?) :spitcoffee:
Russia says it has detained eight people in connection with Saturday's explosion on a key bridge linking Russia to Crimea.

Its FSB security service said five of those held were Russians, while the others were Ukrainian and Armenian.

It says Kyiv was behind the attack but a Ukrainian official described Russia's investigation as "nonsense".

That can't be right. Someone just posted the other day that Germany said they wouldn't send any more anything to help ukraine.
It was me, and still right.

Originally promised in June, first one delivered. The other 3 still to be manufactured [icon_lol2.gif]

I don't think Jews would be very sympathetic toward governments harboring Nazism.

Israel is staying out of it simply of how much influence Russia has in the Middle East - especially with Iran and Syria.

They're not idiots.

16 self-propelled howitzer - Zusanna
130 Heating Systems
36 ETV's (medical transport vehicles)
Another 100,000 first aid kits
Another 405,000 pre-packaged MRE's

That's so far this week. I realize much of it is superfluous stuff that a real army like the Soviets Russians wouldn't need, like food, first aid kits, medical transport and heating systems, but I can't help thinking things like food and first aid probably do help with overall troop morale.

So far Germany has delivered 796,812,445 Euro of the 2 billion they've committed to in the budget process for 2022.

Still to be delivered, partial list:

3 IRIS T SLMS
20 - 700 Laser Guided Rocket Launchers
2 - 227mm M270 MARS (multiple rocket launchers)
4 - 155 mm PzH 2000's
18 - 155mm RCH-155's
16 - 155mm ShKH Zuzana 2's
28 - M55S' Battle tanks
30 - BVP-1's (infantry fighting vehicles)
40 - BMP 1A1's (infantry fighting vehicles)
50 - Dingos (Mine Resistant vehicles)
5032 Man Portable Anti-Tank weapons
24 Anti Drone systems and 40 Frequency Range extenders
8 Mobile Ground Surveillance Radars and thermal imaging cameras
12 Comm scanner/Jammer Systems
43 Reconnaissance Drones
10 - 10 option Autonomous Surface Vehicles
...

You get the point, right? Yeah, you're right, in the way my ex-wife always was, and there is nothing, absolutely nothing more getting delivered from Germany, other than the 1.2 billion dollars' worth of stuff in the list and whatever else they commit to before the year is out. [icon_lol2.gif]
Contrary to popular perception, Germany has delivered significant amounts of arms and equipment to Ukraine to aid the country in its fight against the Russian military. In fact, the volume of arms deliveries by Berlin exceeds that of every other country safe for the United States and the United Kingdom. Nonetheless, Germany has faced severe criticism and even mockery for its perceived lack of support to Ukraine and its ill-fated attempts to keep its relationship with Moscow intact.

The EU committed $9bil back in May or June, of which theyve sent $1bil, so yeah, picking up those amounts above.

Read the news - the Yanks are saying "Hey, wheres the rest!?"

Ukraines 2023 budget pencils in $1.5bil each, monthly, from the US and EU. So the same people who take 6-7 months to send $1bil are going to suddenly turn on the gushing taps come January?

No... scraping the barrel for armanents and hesitating to throw good money after bad.

I'm sure they'll approve their NATO membership any day.

Otherwise this well respected politician (sarcasm alert) is looking like clown for publicly signing an application without even checking if they want him.

Another successful Russian demining operation, executed as planned, I assume. Not sure what else would explain it?

Well, to be fair, the mines were very cleverly hidden. [icon_lol2.gif]

It's quite obvious why the Russians have to rely so heavily on their nuclear arsenal and long range missiles, because the mighty red army is the modern day Keystone Cops.
