Re: Russia-Ukraine UPDATE:Russia threatens Ukraine any attack on DPR/Pro Rus forces will lead to end of Ukraine's existence as a sovereign nation
I think its a 50:50 chance that Russia will steam roll Ukraine in the next few days.
 Quoting: BlackJackEverLast

My own guess is that Putin will steal what he believes he "needs," but not everything he wants. Thus, he will conquer the Ukrainian seacoast as far as Odessa, and link it up with the eastern rebel provinces (Donetsk and Luhansk). But he will not actually roll through Kyiv, because:

- NATO would react in some way, even if only financially (by cutting off Russian access to the world banking system)
- He would face some level of guerrilla warfare in the capital
- He would then have responsibility for Ukraine's economic problems
- The legitimate Ukrainian government would flee to Lviv, and get considerable international sympathy as well as overwhelming public support.

The sad truth is that if Putin limits himself to the seacoast and eastern provinces, NATO will do little in response.

Note also that Putin will certainly make up some kind of ridiculous excuse, just as Hitler did. Here is Hitler's famous quote:

---
"I shall give a propagandist reason for starting the war. Never mind whether it is plausible or not. The victor will not be asked afterward whether he told the truth or not. In starting and waging a war it is not right that matters but victory."
---

Hitler's series of false-flag attacks was called Operation Himmler.

Ukrainian is almost identical to Russian. Who is this moron?
 Quoting: Adaluncatif

Obviously, you are. lol If you actually knew both languages, you would know that Ukrainian is roughly halfway between Russian and Polish--just as one would expect from geography. Ukrainian city and other place names have a distnctive spelling style, different from Russian. There is a reason that Ukrainians prefer (even in English) to spell their capital Kyiv rather than Kiev.

I am in agreement with your thoughts... Putin needs to consolidate access to Crimea and the Black Sea. The only way he could achieve that is by taking all lands east of Dniepr river without entering Kyiv. Not sure on Odessa though... However, if he did take Odessa it would allow a direct connection into Transdniestria - a most likely welcome benefit to Putin, while still not triggering NATO.

 Quoting: Pilgrim001


What does Russia possibly have to gain by doing that? For one, it would greatly benefit Russia to consolidate the lands around Crimea, providing Crimea with much needed resources currently cut off by the Ukraine, and directly create a land bridge to disputed territory in Transdniestria. Secondly, it would once and for all settle Russia as THE master of the Black Sea. Pure dominance play.

I do believe that Ukraine/NATO/US/Neocons are trying to provoke a war with Russia. Crazy times. In full agreement with you on this.

The US has no business in Ukraine. Majority of Ukrainians are tired of old Soviet style government and blatant corruption it breeds... They yearn to emulate the western values (not sure which ones these days) and a western style of economy. They see folks live better in Europe and want the same for themselves.

If Peroshenko does not achieve martial law, I'm sure he will be voted out. Thankfully. When Peroshenko goes, the Punishment of Donbass stops.
I agree, the only way Poroshenko gets elected is if Russia invades - in which case he freezes elections. "Punishment of Donbass" is Putins way of applying direct pressure on Ukrainian election outcome, imo.

Ukraine Wants Nuclear Weapons: Will the West Bow to the Regime in Kiev?

The former Ukrainian envoy to NATO, Major General Petro Garashchuk, recently stated in an interview with Obozrevatel TV:

“I'll say it once more. We have the ability to develop and produce our own nuclear weapons, currently available in the world, such as the one that was built in the former USSR and which is now in independent Ukraine, located in the city of Dnipro (former Dnipropetrovsk) that can produce these kinds of intercontinental ballistic missiles. Neither the United States, nor Russia, nor China have produced a missile named Satan … At the same time, Ukraine does not have to worry about international sanctions when creating these nuclear weapons."

/.../
Moscow, if faced with such a possibility, would not just stand there. In spite of Russia having good relations with North Korea, it did not seem too excited at the prospect of having a nuclear-armed neighbor. With Ukraine, the response would be much more severe. A nuclear-armed Ukraine would be a red line for Moscow, just as Crimea and Sevastopol were. It is worth remembering the Russian president’s words when referring to the possibility of a NATO invasion of Crimea during the 2014 coup:

"We were ready to do it [putting Russia's nuclear arsenal on alert]. Russian people live there, they are in danger, we cannot leave them. It was not us who committed to coup, it was the nationalists and people with extreme beliefs. I do not think this is actually anyone's wish – to turn it into a global conflict."

As Kiev stands on the precipice, it will be good for the neocons, the neoliberals and their European lackeys to consider the consequences of advising Kiev to jump or not. Giving the nuclear go-ahead to a Ukrainian leadership so unstable and detached from reality may just be the spark that sets off Armageddon.

Russia has an economic incentive to invade Ukraine without provocation by repeating what they did to Crimea. I would argue Ukraine has much less a reason to provoke Russia and only has a downside. But I do agree USA has no business in Ukraine outside of friendly trade relations. USA would not like military assets in Cuba or Mexico.

If you hear reports of Ukrainian friendly forces attacking into disputed border regions with Russia, get ready. That per-mediated both Crimea and Georgia invasions.

Thread: The Ukraine will be used as a tool to see how far they can push Russia


My prediction in the next month is that The Ukraine will not only try to start a war with Russia, but they will launch an all out offensive. If this does happen, there's a few questions we must ask ourselves... First off, why would the Ukraine want to start a war with Russia. Of course the surface answer is that Russia was "amassing troops" and "getting ready to invade." This is both an exaggeration or a straight up lie. Russia realizes the backlash that would come from NATO and other countries and would not risk WWIII for the Ukraine. They already got what they really needed from them and that was Crimea. What else would there be to gain from taking the Ukraine? The next question we must ask is why would the leaders of the Ukraine launch what would essentially be a suicide mission for themselves and their army? They either are a tool of the US/NATO or they are banking on NATO to swoop in and help them defeat Russia. This could easily escalate to WWIII obviously and I don't think it will come that. Hopefully it will not.
