Russian soldiers will die to defend their two thousand year old culture

Nato troops will die to defend the share prices of Boeing and Northrop Grumman.

I know who my money is on.

Sounds exactly like another notorious military scheme from the 1930’s. That went well.

Every time a new pope or king or dictator got some big head…. they marched on Moscow.

If Mexico had done that to us, we would not tolerate Russia telling us to stand down. That’s stupid. And now we’re acting stupid. Let Russia have Ukraine back. It’s not our problem.

Hard to feel sorry for Europe.

I like this red tape. Screw ’em. They can slow down and think before they shoot.

Its bad enough that ISIS has whole inventories of US tow missiles, do you want to give them more? Why not admit the US screwed up and stop brow beating Russia.

To make any such incursion work, the ‘russians’ would have to go 100 km south to Bialystok and if they did that they would be truly exposed.

Before you turkeys get your imprisoned staff writers to concoct such stupid theories you should at least check their work.
