You obviously dont know Europe. We build mega bridges evry year. Infact its a main business of a french company
Yeah, 1:20,000 scale... fit in the palm of your hand.
Cruise missiles dont seem to be much help for the Russians.
Actually they have been widely used and hit quite a few HQs and fuel and ammo dumps...
I wonder how much APSs and thermal imagers the money wasted on the poseidon james bond villain torpedo would be able to buy
The technologies needed for Poseidon will have a wide range of applications and uses, including remote operating drones that make decisions for themselves.
Such technology has huge promise in regard robot ground vehicles and air support vehicles to detect and defeat ambushes.
As nuclear power France plain and simply is untouchable.
Because it does not shower?
We are aware that Putin similar to Hitler dreams about conquering Europe.
Putin knew an attack on the Ukraine would end all ties with Europe, stop confusing your dreams with his.
It's funny how the narrative in the EU could not be more wrong.
This is more like Putin liberating the Russian lands which again had temporarily fallen under the boots of western imperialists. Indeed, the situation in some sence is reminiscent of that of the 1940's but like last time, the "Hitler" sits in familiar place - in the western capitals. Russia and Putin are only acting on self defense - like always.
The EU thinks whatever the US tells them to think.
The situation is that Putin found out the Nazis on his border were working on viruses and bio weapons, and now wanted nukes...
He is not going to care what the EU or US squeals about or threatens.
I think there was certainly an expectation that Russian forces would be viewed neutrally by much of the population
I would think the nazi units shooting civilians trying to leave via humanitarian corridors and generally using the local population as meat shields would be enough to get the local population on side if they get a chance to show it...
We see it different. Its like Hitler in 1938 with Sudentenland. Appeasment doesnt work with tyrants like Putin. His entire ideology is based on Dugins Eurasian empire.
Yeah, the thing is that HATO is hitler, and you were giving nukes and bio weapons to nazis on Russias border.
The entire west invaded Iraq because you said they had WMDs... which was proven later on that he didn't.
Evidence of US bioweapons labs in Ukraine is fact. Zelensky already publicly started he wanted nukes to ensure the security of the Ukraine... so invasion was fully justified and worth any possible backlash from the west.
And so far it looks good for us.
Of course it looks good for US... it is their orders you are following, they created this whole situation with bio weapons labs and nukes and encouraging nazis within the Ukraine. this wasn't an accident... they want the EU to lose money in Russia and to be afraid and scared like little girls.
Close enough to be targeted by last variants of Toshka which has 185km range.
Well if they don't launch them then they can't destroy the launchers...
So I'm wondering why Russia decided to invade the Ukraine, what provocation was in the making. NATOization I know about, the increasing of the forces in the Donbass, now the biolabs, the blockade of Prindestrovie. Sure. But we don't know what it was, or why it wasn't handled differently beforehand.
Nuke weapons was enough for the invasion of Iraq for the US and her bitches, I would think bio weapons and nukes would be enough for Putin too.
Except that Iraqi nukes were made up.
Either way the war seems to be going down the route of Syria and it's time to stop it, and negotiate something.
Yes, because negotiations with Zelensky and Poroshenko and the US and EU have been outstanding successes so far, that is obviously the smart thing to do because obviously this time they will mean what they promise to do...
Finish the conflict and get it done.... get to the borders you want, crush the nazis, let the rest go and then start cementing everything in place.
But to call the Ukraine some sort of Nazi state or have ordinary Ukrainians suffer just because the Ukrainian state employs such people and uses them to colonize Kharkov and areas of the Donbass previously under their control - is profoundly wrong.
Life is difficult, Kiev has been trying to nazify and anti Russian weaponise its own people for some time now... the cure is being applied.
But it's nothing to be proud of if now you have 2 million refugees, hundreds of destroyed homes, millions of lost jobs and livelihoods, and no peace deal yet signed. What the fk.
No peace deal is ever likely to be signed... even if Zelensky signed it in his own blood what would it be worth?
They happily murdered their own people who they wrote off as being Russia agents because they wanted to continue to speak Russian in their own country.
Where was the cries and sympathy then?
If they are only caring about themselves now that they are affected why should I care... or you care?
Russia is not in the position to make any demands. For Putin only counts to get out of it without losing face.
Why do you think Putin cares about pride or what the west thinks of him?
It is over... Russia is looking elsewhere for its needs and its future.
The capture of near all ukraine will allow russia to relax and not need to have a big army near ukraine borders and either deactive those troops or send them to another zone ,that they could be need ,like belarus poland border or kalingrad.
They likely don't want all of the Ukraine... they talk about a demilitarised denazified neutral ukraine so I rather suspect they wont be staying anywhere... though if the US or EU tries to move in they might do something.
The strategy to let russian pows call their mothers is a very good one and should also done with dead soldiers who can be identified. Make a pic of the corpse and send it their mothers via mobile phone. This way the front reaches directly home.
Bye bye... that is a perma ban... I suspect no objections to that one?
Then make me mod. I will be more than happy to clean up this thread.
This would be a very boring forum with just me and you and George... and I say that because you can't ban mods.
It always amuses me that you guys are absolutely incapable to understand the other side. Its not trolling, i give you the european point of view.
Most of us live in the west and we already know their point of view... you deliver it with a Russophobic racism that we don't really need.
We will never allow Putin to rule Europe...or even Ukraine for that matter.
Was never a consideration, Putin doesn't even want to keep the Ukraine... just eliminate it as a threat... keep that in mind if you want to keep pushing Russia because his solution to the rest of Europe wont be an invasion...
Yeah, Papadragon was suspended but yet some French **** gets to constantly post here?
True, but he does make the other French members look astoundingly mature and level headed... and not racist.
Aristide is the west... all showy and eager to show you his wealth... he will talk about morals and ethics, and will apply his own morals and ethics when it comes to people he does not like or wants to attack or punish, but in reality there are no actual morals or ethics there.
