    You are probably more correct than me, I had just read a telegraph opinion piece about Amnesty that did resonate with me a bit.

    I don't think it is of any concern to anyone but the Liberal West what Amnesty said.

    Russia news simply reports on whatever cherry picked "news" item that projects its agenda.

    So a comment from a random  Daily Mail reader will become "the British People', a defrocked priest with a criminal record will be the voice of the church.

    If Amnesty hadn't said it Russia would have said they had, in the daily torrent of lies that is Russian media.

    Russia has the strategic bomber and long range aircraft China lacks.

    Except that they are ancient and dangerous to their crew who fly them. Russia attempted to renew the Soviet system of testing NATO by flying into its airspace on s regular basis.

    End result was a regular display of air disasters decimating the aircraft and crew. Replacement aircraft are being built at a snails pace due to a lack of industrial capacity and trained people.

    China is at least ten times as capable as Russia in the military and aerospace capability.

    Russia suffers from the Dutch Disease not just because petrochemical exports have hollowed out their other industries, but their people capital is devastated by a system that steals anything of intellectual or commercial value, making investment in education or business pointless.

    MoD is now reporting in public the kit and manpower movement out of Donbas that I talked about last week.

    VDV elements were raced to prevent any Ukrainian moves in those areas first. They then got tank support added - some stripped from knackered army BTGs, some from VDV's own units.

    New units are now joining those. The running assumption was counter Ukraine moves as those sectors were too thin. Reinforcements could mean they are going to try and break the UA in those regions before a build-up counter offensive gets rolling. But they are robbing Donbas offensive to do it

    Ukraine is attacking towards Izum

    So you have nothing to say about the belingcat (of mh17 fame, remember that time Russians shot down a plane full of civilians?) investigation which identified the Russian military animals who castrated and murdered prisoner of war while recording whole vile act?


    You want to tell us why these Russian animals now CHOSE to put heads of prisoners of war they kill on stakes?

     

    You claim to have been in the military and have equated Russians to uk military, tell us what would happen to a soldier who does the above in a civilised non barbarian army

     Russians are very different from us. Like the torture video, many will be cheering it on.

    From their perspective, Nazis NATO forces are sub human barbarians who will do the same to them, so it's not wrong.

    Besides: fake.

    Russia will be running out of money pretty soon.

    Oil now down to $88 a barrel with forward contracts for December delivery now in the $70s. Russia's assumed cost of production is in the $50s, so after the $20-30 discounts they are having to give to get India and China to take their oil they will be left with little or nothing to fund the war. 

    A recession in the west will mean economic collapse in Russia.

    Gas price is still sky high isn't it?

    It is very difficult to be 100% neutral 

    You could claim their is no difference between the aggression of Russia and the aggression of the west, Ukraine is a casualty, the Ukrainian population is being sacrificed to stop Russia which on 50 years historians will say is wrong 

    I am probably the only one here not cheering for one of the sides

    100% Russia's argument and 100% not neutral.

    Russia claims US ‘directly involved’ in Ukraine

    Russia’s defence ministry claimed Washington was “directly involved” and had passed on intelligence that had led to the “mass deaths of civilians”. The US was responsible for rocket attacks by Kyiv on populated areas in the eastern Donbas and in other regions, it said.

    The supply of weapons is accompanied not only by instructions on its use, but in this case they perform the function of gunners in their purest form.

    “All this undeniably proves that Washington, contrary to White House and Pentagon claims, is directly involved in the conflict in Ukraine,” the ministry said in a statement.

    Lmao, who gives a **** what they think.

    It is not about justification it is if you are using schools and hospitals to launch attacks against then Russia will bombs these places and lots of civilians will get hurt.

    and amnesty did say they are not on the side of Russia just putting events in the public domain

    Are you a Russian troll? because you are a Russian caricature of stupid Westerners.

    about breaking the enemies will to continue. There will be some killing, there is always pain, suffering and hardship.

    That's an idealised view. In practice it has often taken a very long time and a lot of destruction.

    Vietnam took 7million tons of US airdropped ordnance a million dead and over a decade before the US lost the will to fight. Russia and NATO in Afghanistan took decades. WW2 went for 5 years and there is the WW1 shit show.

    Instead of removing the will, removing the ability to fight by destroying the enemy far  faster than they can be replaced is better for saving the lives of both sides.

    In practice its almost impossible to do, as history shows.

    Ukraine will never give up, to do so means extermination.

    So the only way to save lives is to destroy as many Russian assets as fast as possible because they can and will give up.

    So if you want peace, pray for Russian defeat.

    Right so alongside this, the love of seeing people being burned up in vehicles through your war pron video posts and your belief that all Russians are murderers & rapists etc... even when I gave an example to the contrary backed in fact - you are as bound up in the propaganda as I expected.

    You need every Russian to be a monster because you need black & white. They are Red you are blue therefore they are all monsters and must die.

    Basically you are one step away from being able to justify the kinds of atrocities we've seen as 'they deserve it'. If you were in Russia you'd probably be the Russian cheerleader rollover is.

    Hate to break it to you but this war is about destroying the men and materials of your enemy faster than they do the same to you.

    You can ve an independent observer if you like, the rest of us don't want to be on the receiving end of Russian aggression and there want the Russians to be destroyed.

    @yelims

    You might enjoy hearing about the 80 Russian soldiers who thought they could 'just quit' in Ukraine. They refused to fight, were detained in a makeshift prison in Donbas guarded by Wagner operatives who mistreated them with all, bar 1 or 2 who got medical discharge due to wounds, are now listed as missing.

    The story is by your same lawyer dealing with soldiers in Russia trying to quit.

    So much for quit anytime... looks like not bothering with desertion anymore and going to straight up prison and disappeared.

    Their detention was illegal under Russian law, Wagner are a company not the Russian government.

    However those territories are not Russia.

    Indeed he is. The only person in British politics with the moral integrity to address the issue: If the West is not prepared to defend Ukraine militarily against a vastly superior aggressor then by prolonging the conflict we are merely protracting their inevitable defeat.

     

    In other news. The US military-industrial complex continues to practice extra-judicial murder in the Middle East.

    And even the Taiwanese want the Christer fascist Nancy Pelosi to f**k off whence she came!

    https://uk.news.yahoo.com/even-people-taiwan-pelosi-just-164433966.html

    So you agree that peace is the only option?

    China should surrender to the Nationalists on Taiwan and let them run the one China, that's what you are saying, right?

    Jeremy Corbyn urges west to stop arming Ukraine

    “Pouring arms in isn’t going to bring about a solution, it’s only going to prolong and exaggerate this war,” Corbyn said. “We might be in for years and years of a war in Ukraine.”

    “What I find disappointing is that hardly any of the world’s leaders use the word peace; they always use the language of more war, and more bellicose war.”

    He added: “This war is disastrous for the people of Ukraine, for the people of Russia, and for the safety and security of the whole world, and therefore there has to be much more effort put into peace.”

    Guardian

    Lmfao.

    Corbyn is a gem.
