Is Putin about to make a big mistake?
Lots of talk here that he is about to invade Ukraine.

NATO and the US won’t get involved but heavy sanctions have been threatened and Putin has threatened ending all diplomatic ties with the west.

Latest is that Putin will stage an attack making it look like Ukraine starts the conflict.

What’s being reported over there?

Is it about to kick off?

What rios is proposing and what you are discussing is precisely the same as what the Americans did in Vietnam. Wiping out entire villages of civilians with the justification that some of them might possibly be Viet Cong.

Even the US government was eventually shamed into convicting about 40 soldiers for war crimes although the true figure of the guilty was probably in the hundreds. It was a disgraceful episode in the history of the US armed forces and the US government, who tried to hush the whole thing up in the certain knowledge that they WERE war crimes.

At the very least, such a policy would give lie to Russian claim of this being a special emergency of some some and be a declaration of total war.

I understand a soldier's need to protect himself, and feel this need is often (NI for instance) underestimated, but there are clearly defined rules as to what is and what is not acceptable. Shoot anyone you feel like is not.

Re: Is Putin about to make a big mistake?
SA0 12.09, it is patently clear that rls is acting in strict accordance with the Kremlin playbook. It is for others to decide whether or not that this is deliberate or inadvertent.

He will if pressed from time to time agree to, in a Luke warm way, condemn something that the Russian invaders have done. Mostly though he posts to undermine the actions of the West and Ukraine. The most recent sample of the playbook exercise is attempting to undermine the UK actions against Abramovic as possibly being illegal. He has constantly cast doubt on any positive results of the defence that Ukraine is fighting, implied that there were several Chemical warfare centres in the Ukraine and posited that the Dictator Putin’s invasion may not be deemed illegal in terms of international law..

All of this he does in a non profane, mostly non judgemental way and you get the impression that his task is not to outrightly defend Russia but seek to cause people to doubt the actions of the Ukraine and the West.

Re: Is Putin about to make a big mistake?

And that’s why you make such a fool of yourself daily small cock. The right wing has been groomed to distrust basically anythig]ng it reads so you’ll support people like trump, or whatever the likes of Putin wan’t. It’s not covered up, there’s a lot of reading you can do about it - it’s classic disinformation.

As such most of you, with the obvious exceptions of goose and the bullshit sphincter - can see the invasion is wrong - but still struggle to come to terms with the fact that for all its faults - there may be something worse out there than the west.

The easy fallback to avoid talking about the extreme Russian nationalism which has become fascism, and the close feeling many of you have towards the anti-wokism Putin leads - is to just blame the hated meeja.

One of the most entertaining moments was a group of us senators pouring scorn on its own military with it’s don’t ask don’t tell,and transgender and whathaveyou policies and how tough the Russian army was in response.

Red army not looking so fucking great now is it.

I wouldn't argue with a word of that - and rios can defend himself so has no need for any "support" from me.

I would share to some (considerable) extent his distrust of the UK/US media (propaganda) machine though; we have no viable baseline against which to determine it's accuracy (apart from a couple of shouty posters who seem to think that if they believe something, everybody should believe it).

In "defence" of the Russian side here - and I deliberately add quotation marks, the Ukrainian plan seems to be to arm a million civilians; admirable to defend their country, but with no uniforms to identify them, I can't see how the Russians can do anything but shoot on sight given such a scenario - it could be a milkman or equally it could be a man armed with Molotov cocktails. They, the Russian soldiers, also want to survive.

Maybe the EU could send a container load of fatigues for them to wear so it's easier to identify armed combatants.

To be fair Rios has come perilously close recently. And a couple of others have stretched neutrality to its extreme, mostly through a refusal to accept that the UK and US governments can ever be right on anything.

Re: Is Putin about to make a big mistake?
I see rios is positioning himself to defend the killing of civilians by Russia on the basis that they are all potential combatants.

I've refrained from saying so before, mate, because you are normally quite sensible, but in the past few months you have turned yourself into Comical Ali with snowboots.

Re: Is Putin about to make a big mistake?
There is absolutely ZERO evidence of Putin being defended on this thread or anywhere else on the site.

Doesn't matter how SHOUTY you get, not one person on here is defending/has defended Putin.

Proof would be nice, but you have none. Are you pickled's body double?

Re: Is Putin about to make a big mistake?
Doesn't that still leave 39-odd million in civilian clothing who are not armed.

It's the trouble when a fascist dictatorship invades someone and those people don't want to be invaded.

Still, cunts like bovine sphincter here will always be defending them.

Re: Is Putin about to make a big mistake?
How do you define civilian? Do you mean non-combatant?

Ukraine is looking to arm 1 million people and have already armed a lot of people making them potential combatants as well as releasing violent prisoners and arming them.

How do you regard the Red Army’s behaviour towards civilians in this war?

Re: Is Putin about to make a big mistake?
Having at first stood firm against this exercise in fiscal blackmail, it seems Brussels has now caved. It has given a nod and a wink to member states that paying Russia for fuel using foreign currency accounts at the Russian Gazprombank, which would essentially give Russia what it wants, would not amount to sanctions-busting under its existing laws.

Re: Is Putin about to make a big mistake?
I see that Turkey is being played like a fiddle with regard to Finland & Sweden joining NATO.

Everyone knew they would object just to have a dig at the Kurds but by dragging out the application process, more & more stress is being placed on Putin.

I, personally, don't think Finland and Sweden will join but the closer the possibility of an offer comes, the less pressure there is on Putin, so, "Well played, the Turks!" for stretching this one out.

Russia and Ukraine have agreed to evacuate the injured from Azovstal (Mariupol) for treatment in Novoazovsk. Novoazovsk is 40km east of Mariupol and well within the area controlled by the DPR and very close to the Russian border. They will apparently remain in the custody of the DPR.

Shh! It's only (ONLY) pickled's fearsome activities on here that are driving the Russians back.

Of course they need to save face by sacrificing men and machines all over the place and can never admit that is the case, but we *taps side of nose* in the know, know.

Catweazle has been quiet about his Ukrainian refugees?

So quiet in fact, you'd begin to wonder if he ever had any refugees at all? Or any intention to help out, and just crowed about it on here like the vacuous virtual signalling piece of shit he really is.
